French
Stephen Starr's stylish addition to Rittenhouse Square pays tribute to French cafe culture, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, ideal for a quick bite or a leisurely meal. Parc recalls the chic brasseries of Paris, serving classic French fare in a charming space. Red leather banquettes topped with frosted glass provide a sense of intimacy. Details such as well-worn wooden chairs, vintage framed paintings and photos and antique brass fixtures transport guests across the Atlantic. French doors spill onto a sidewalk terrace covered by a dark red awning perfect for dining "en plein air." Reservations are not accepted for outdoor tables.

Its Parc, not much more you can say. Its Steven Starr’s baby and for good reason. Little pricey but you dont make a reservation at Parc expecting less. Everything came out perfectly timed, we came in somewhat late and left shortly after closing time and at no point did we feel rushed. Great pacing by the server (Ryan). Professionalism by the table was impressive, attentiveness to us was perfect, great presentation, great experience. I’d do the same every night if my wallet would allow it.

I was catching up with a friend who recommended this restaurant. The servers were very knowledgeable, professional and efficient. The food was wonderful. I especially liked the salmon tartare. Their specialty drinks were unique and enjoyable as well. I enjoyed it that I came back a 2nd time. I highly recommend!

The warm shrimp salad is one of my favorites at Parc. I treated myself to a glass of sparkling rose. My friend had the warm shrimp salad, too, and a Margarita. We enjoyed the warm bread that is a staple at Parc. Wonderful experience time and time again.

Our server was great and all the food was cooked and presented perfectly. We had the French onion soup, escargot, and raviolis to start. Our entrees were the burger and scallops which were amazing.

Aside from Parc being one of my favorites (and my kids), the food is and has always been outstanding! The way the place is run is top notch (the General Manager clearly knows what she’s doing). Staff, food (including the bread 🙂), and ambiance elevate the restaurant from 90% of the other restaurants in Philly.

Sitting in the outdoor pods was an awful experience. Chairs rickety, as was the table. Service, usually so good at parc, was subpar. I blame Jim Kenney. Was here two weeks ago and had a great experience but we were forced to sit outside because there happens to be 5 in our family. Walking down 18th was a much bigger covid hazard then sitting in a restaurant while social distancing.

Our experience was great. The outdoor chateaus were really nice and warm. I felt very comfortable. Our server Cesar was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The food was delicious. I personally felt my Steak Frite was a little but under-seasoned, but everything else was perfect.

We will definitely be back.

They tried to seat us on mezzanine which I objected to. The outside hostess told me if I didn’t like the location tell the hostess inside and the would reseat me. After going backs me forth with red hair manager and male hostess they found me another table. The manager abruptly asked well did you have a reservation and I told her I did. Why would that make a difference. Also dined at Buddakhan the same night.

Delightful lunch for my childhood friend’s birthday. We sat in a chalet and enjoyed a park view - even on a cloudy day. Drew’s service was impeccable. Our salads - a nicoise for me and a shrimp salad for the birthday gal, we’re both delicious. I’d scooped the restaurant that it was my friends’ birthday and when she didn’t order dessert they sent macaroons with a candle. Another thoroughly enjoyable excursion to Parc.

We think of Parc as a "valeur sûre"--the food is always outstanding, the service as good as it gets. Current efforts to offer interior tables separated by transparent barriers increased the intimacy of the meal.
I had the scallops and endive, a melt-in-the-mouth main course. My husband had a cheeseburger, that he described as the best he'd ever eaten.
The bread basket, itself, is worth a review. Delicious!

I took my fiance to Parc for her birthday a few nights ago. The food was reasonably good, especially the Mushroom tart and Profiteroles. The ambience, however, was not. I guess if you decide to eat inside, then there would be no problem. We decided to get a table in one of the make-shift tents they set up outside that overlooks the park. Seemed like a good idea, right? A birthday dinner overlooking Rittenhouse Park. Very romantic sounding. And perhaps it would have been if panhandlers and raving derelicts did not have access to your table. We were accosted three times during the course of the meal. And since we're in our own hut/tent, there's nowhere to go to avoid this. A manager did come over once with a few waiters to get one of these people to move along, so at least they addressed one of the three times something happened. But frankly, this shouldn't be happening at all. Parc -- if you're going to offer outdoor dining, please do something about this. Close off the sidewalk from passersby or have at least a security guard who can take care of this. This is Philly, not Paris. This city has a rather troubling problem with lunatics, panhandlers, and opioid addicts wandering around.

I love Parc - the food, the ambiance, and the new outdoor cabanas. However, the chairs chosen for the outside cabanas are very uncomfortable. I am disappointed that Parc went cheap on the chairs. I wish they bought more of their other chairs. The service is very efficient, but I find the wait staff rarely make any attempt to be friendly with those they serve unless you are a regular. Overall, I will keep coming because the food is very good! Compared to other Philadelphia restaurants I would put Parc in the top 20%.

We are regulars. Dinner was excellent. The bottle of South African Chenin Blanc had an earthy tone and complimented the seafood and veal. But the best part was the service from Cesar!!
