Classic French food served superbly. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures on this visit but found the cocktails bright, the rose dry, and everything delicious. No pictures means the company was even better.

We were given a nice table and there appeared to be quite a few things going on in the area at the time. The burger was nothing to write home about and my companion felt quite ill afterwards, having had the steak. For those reasons...I couldn’t recommend the restaurant, nor would I want to return.More

We took our daughter to dinner there for her 23rd birthday and what a wonderful time we had. Our daughter is a fan of their chicken kiev, but they only make that on Thursdays and we were having dinner on a Saturday. I reached out...and Hani pretty quickly responded that they would do that for her. Closer to the date of our actual reservation, Lauren again confirmed that it would be made for us for her birthday. We had Anthony as our waiter and his service was just perfect. His service was spot on without hovering, and he was entertaining and very personable. He was a little taken aback when we said that we had pre-ordered the chicken kiev and he was pretty funny when he came back to confirm that it was in the kitchen for us! Everyone in the restaurant was great, the food was excellent and it's a beautiful restaurant. We look forward to our next visit there!More

Excellent brunch at Parc. Cheerful, friendly reception and service throughout. Our server was really great- easily and without blinking accommodated several special requests. Food was outstanding and I saw several other things on the menu I would have liked as well. Well made drinks. Price...to value ratio good. Highly recommended for brunch, I look forward to trying dinnerMore

We booked but arrived a few minutes early. They seated us without fuss and we enjoyed a very good meal. The tuna carpaccio was beautifully delicate and the salade niçoise was excellent. There was a good choice of French wines (though we chose a Californian...Zinfandel). Service was prompt and friendly. The place isn’t sure if it’s a brasserie or a bistro. I’d say probably the former. It’s too informal (on our experience) to be a bistro. It’s probably best to describe it as an American take on a brasserie. It was busy and buzzy. The bar looked to be well stocked, though we didn’t sample it very much.More

Beautuful decor in classic old style. Awesome bar with awesome bartenders. Drinks were exceptional. Dinner was ok, except we were time-limited because we didn't have a reservation. We sat at 6PM and place was jammed by 645. Mushroom tart was large, but not hot and...rather heavy. Beef bourguignon was tasty, but again, not served warm enough . Half chicken was juicy, but again, not hot. Pureed pomme were very tasty, but not hot. Extensive wine list is a bit pricy. Our time constraint prevented us from sending our food back to be warmed, but we'd give it another chance because the service was excellent and the place is just that gorgeous.More

The cost of the wine spoilt our evening!!! On arrival we were told that the table would be 40 minutes so we waited next to the bar area. I asked the bar tender for a bottle of Haut Rian from the menu, as it was...the cheapest by glass, and he said he would transfer the bill to our table. I made a mistake by not asking him the price of the bottle!!! We were served a lovely meal, two steaks (76$), Lobster Risotto (45$) and Duck (39$) plus side of mashed potatoes, the food was excellent. However the duck was small and they could have added another piece of duck breast to the plate (photo attached). When we received the bill I noticed the bottle of wine was not included, and being honest I told the waiter. He returned with a new bill and the wine was 75$, I was disappointed as the wine is mediocre and costs around 20$ outside. I don't mind a 50% mark up in a restaurant but this is far too much. I was going to argue the price, as the whole bill was now 281.22$. The staff were friendly and atmosphere very good, so I would return but not buy the wine. Its a pity as it ruined the evening, lesson learned, ask for the price of the wine, if not on a wine list/menu.More

Wonderful atmosphere with fantastic views of Rittenhouse Square. Tamia provided service with a smile. My son and I enjoyed our fruity Greek yogurt and fluffy pancakes. And check out the bathroom: I’ve never heard such great audio - classical music at full blast. Then again,...the restaurant is across the street from the Curtis Institute.More

We’ve been to Parc several times, and have had lovely experiences. Unfortunately last night was not one of those, steak was actually cold when it arrived to table (as in the butter on top was not even slightly melted!) in fairness, it was a busy...night, and when pointed out to our server she did sent it back, but by the time my dinner arrived everyone else was finished theirs - disappointing and pricy evening. that said, the beet salad was outstanding as was the bread!More

Had a chance to have dinner here with some friends and had a wonderful experience. In the past, I will come here for brunch, but this time I was lucky enough to come for dinner. The restaurant itself is a true bistro experience and you...do feel like you’re in Paris. The food is fantastic from appetizers to dessert. Very attentive staff. Highly recommended!More

Lovely breakfast in a charming French cafe. French toast was lovely and so was the omelette. My partner says this was one of the best omelettes he’s had anywhere and the breakfast potatoes were sensational.

My first visit. Went with my family who lives in the area. I have eaten at many of the restaurants in the area over the years and there are several very good ones. The Parc rates right up there at the top on quality of...food, service and atmosphere. I had their veal, and it was excellent. Definitely one of the preferred places into area to go. I'll definitely return next time I visit.More

I had a lovely evening at Parc. It was recommended in every restaurant guide I came across prior to my trip - something of a Philly institution - a well loved & long established part of the city dining fabric. It’s a huge enterprise, with...a spacious buzzy Parisian brasserie styled interior, plus an array of pavement tables, including a covered section of outdoor seating. The location near Rittenhouse Square is ideal, & the restaurant oozes buzz & atmosphere. Despite the rush, service was efficient & friendly, as was the greeting. Food was also very good, the menu full of french bistro crowd pleasers like onion soup & moules & frites. Loved it!!More

Booked a table for brunch a few weeks ahead of time (and we heard there was over an hour wait for those w/o reservations). We got a little table for 2 by the window and proceeded to enjoy an excellent meal. I'm a tea drinker...and was impressed by their tea selection and service. Their custom black tea blend was very good. My husband got a cappuccino that had a pretty design on top! But on to the food! I'd read that the pastry basket was a must have, so we ordered that and declined the free basket of assorted breads that was offered. (Yes, there's such a thing as too much bread). Our pastry basket included crossaints, sweet and savory tarts, and a deliciously spiced "doughnut." We were careful not to over-indulge so we could eat our other food. My husband enjoyed his lobster cocktail and salmon tartine. I absolutely loved my quiche Lorraine, which was a huge slice of creamy, rich quiche with a little salad that had just the right touch of dressing. I hope I get to have it again sometime! The service was attentive - tons of employees were bustling about - although it did seem a little slow to get food, true to the French way. We were not in a rush, so it was fine.More

Just about anything goes here--it's right off Rittenhouse Square, so sometimes folks just stroll over in jeans and flip flops. Or, it's not unusual to see someone dressed nicely for an evening out. Whatever you wear, you can... More

This is one of the places that we will go to before an orchestra concert, so it is a reasonable walk to the Kimmel Center.
