The hostess seating us near the front near the French doors which look out onto the square.The atmosphere is very European down to the vintage girlie pictures in the men's bathroom Several of us had the...

This review is about the warmer weather sidewalk dining experience, altho the food, menu, and staff are the same indoors. Located directly across 18th Street from Rittenhouse Park, this Parc owns some of the best sidewalk space in Philadelphia. Between the visitors to the park, and the pedestrian traffic, people watching doesn't get much better. The food is fresh and... More

I chose this restaurant based on the brunch menu offerings, the reviews and the location for celebrating a milestone birthday. I made the reservation in advance and also made arrangements at that time for desserts with candles to come out to celebrate two birthdays at our table. I noted that one person had a nut allergy. The experience was perfect.... More

Four of us for business, quick lunch. V trad french brasserie interior, love the very classical outdoor seating, reminded me of my last Paris trip along the Champs. Croque Monsieur, not bad, perhaps a little too much bechamel, but aok. My colleague had a Charcuterie plate, lots of meats / pate, looked good. Another the Lyonnaise Salad... good size all... More

I'll start by saying the food here is incredible. I started with the Onion soup which was amazing and my husband had the assorted oysters, which were about the best he's ever had. For dinner I had the beef Bourguignon. The beef was extremely tender and the gravy was delicious. My husband loved his scallops My issue with this restaurant... More

We were recommended to one of the sister venues but chose Parc for its location on Rittenburg Sq. Excellent service and choice of food and drinks. We took the bread from the bread basket for the next day and it was delicious!!

Today was our third visit. Delicious, as were the first two visits. What really stands out, however, is the very attentive service of Adam, one of the regular servers. He has, fortunately (or coincidentally?), been our server all three times. He is a consummate professional, who has clearly done his homework on how to be an excellent waiter. Adam pays... More

We happened to be in Philly on Bastille Day and are super Francophiles. Found Parc on a stroll through the city. The decor is perfectly reminiscent of Paris right down to the furniture. Great outdoor seating area overlooking a park. (It was pouring the night we were there so we ate inside.) While it was noisy, it was charming and... More

Had our first meal at Parc last night for my daughter's birthday. Overall it was really nice, and I would recommend it and go again anytime. Seating - We had no reservation. Showed up before 6pm and got a table for 5 easily. Very nice seating location, although I think I might have preferred a booth, as the standard seats... More
