Paris in Philadelphia

Atmosphere reminiscent of the Parisian Bistros. Excellent food, attentive waitstaff, noisy atmosphere but fun. Worth the visit!

We ate Sunday brunch at Parc this past weekend after reading reviews and checking out the menu, and I'd say overall we were very happy to wait 45 minutes to get a table. We received a text from the restaurant with a 10-minute "get here or we'll give up your table" message when our spot was ready - which was... More

A lovely French brasserie with very nice atmosphere and great service. The food was very delicious. The duck confit was simply amazing. Overall, great experience.

Very busy place, but pay attention to the host or hostess-- they are usually interesting people. Food is typical French bistro, and very good.

The food is fine, it's a large menu with plenty of choices. They willingly accommodate food allergies. The servers are excellent and so are the drinks. The outdoor seating is very nice.

I've been to Parc numerous times for lunch and dinner. The food is always great. I love the Warm Shrimp Salad. The burgers are great, the French Onion Soup is making my mouth water just thinking about it and the hot chocolate is delicious. The are lots of tables outside overlooking Rittenhouse Square (and around the corner also). Whenever my... More

I'm not an expert on Parisian bistros and regretfully have never been to Paris, but this restaurant is just how I'd imagined it! The atmosphere is beautiful, and the food was excellent. The service is also great. Will definitely be back.

If it's nice out, sit at an outside table across from Rittenhouse Square park. But if not, the dining rooms are intimate, like in a French restaurant. Brunch on Christmas Day was a highlight.

It was the coldest night in winter but the brasserie was warm and inviting. The place was huge, and despite the temperature they had the sidewalk seatings ready just like cafes in Paris. (But nobody was sitting there...unlike winter in Paris) I had trout armondine, which was delicious with toasted nutty flavor. They also did all greens well, too. Vietnamese... More
