Wonderful

Group dinner - fun place for a group dinner. Due to the decor it can be very noisy at dinner. Groups of 2 can sometimes be seated in the high-traffic areas of the restaurant. It's definitely the place to be seen. Our stakes were excellent.

Perfect prime rib. Scrumptious sea bass. No room for dessert but that didn't stop us. Creme brulee was the best but no complaints with the chocolate chip banana home made ice cream either except I couldn't finish it! Everything was just delicious. Service was exceptional. It's not cheap $400 for 4 and not very quiet but so worth it.

I have not been to Parc in at least a year - I'm from out of town but each time I return to Philly, I try to do lunch or brunch at Parc. I brought my mum to Parc at our most recent visit, this time for Saturday brunch/lunch, and it was packed. We got a two-seater by the window,... More

This restaurant is of the same mold as the wildly popular Balthazar in NYC. The food is comparably expensive, but the food is a notch off the mark. The salads are relatively small in portion and assembled with relatively ordinary ingredients and a bland dressing. The steak frites is good, but the fries are no better than what you find... More

Surprisingly good, with a neighborhood/brunch feel on a spring Saturday morning. Wide ranging menu focused on salads and other light fare. Across from the park, with sidewalk seating.

What a happening, vibe, fabulous place on the park! Great food, lovely atmosphere. Took a long time to seat us and a long time to serve us, but that didn't detract from the overall experience.

We had eaten here a few years ago, on our last visit to Philadelphia, and immediately made a reservation here for our last visit. Our evening plans necessitated completion of dinner by 6:30, and the continuing service from lunch onward was great. we arrived around 4:30 and were offered the

We found ourselves at Rittenhouse Square on our first night in Philadelphia, looking or a place to eat when my wife noticed we were standing near Parc.. She read that this was one of the "must visit" restaurants in town. Without a reservation we were hesitant but were accommodated immediately. The experience was exceptional. Our server was most eager to... More

It's hard to pick a more delightful and scenic spot for lunch in Rittenhouse Square than Parc! The menu has a wide range of salads and entrees (the trout amandine is amazing!), and the homemade ice cream is a great choice for dessert. I recommend going early for lunch and making a reservation - the restaurant fills up quickly. Be... More

We stumbled upon this place after driving into Philadelphia late night from NYC. My husband liked the menu when we passed by, and I am glad he insisted we try Parc. It being very busy at 10pm was a pretty great sign in itself (and people came in after us). The food was really incredible. My husband is a classically... More
