Fine and nothing special

Good view on park and atmosphere inside, but price a little bit high for this food. Portions pretty big and tasty, maybe for me nothing special after Paris. At all stylish place with a lot of visitor during diner time, booking required for diner!

Our family love France but we're in Philadelphia for a wedding & this restaurant was perfect for us. It's right on Rittenhouse Square & the atmosphere as soon as you walk in the door is buzzing without being too much. Our servers were very friendly but professional & knew their menus & specials. We had a child with us so... More

Whenever I start making plans for a trip to Philadelphia I start by planning a visit to Parc Brasserie located at the corner of South 18th and Locust Streets, across 18th Street from Rittenhouse Square Park. And so I did for Tuesday May 19, 2015. I love the historical ambiance of the city itself, but the little neighborhood that surrounds... More

One of the best dinners I've had in a very long time. This place is fantastic and they're not uptight about it at all. We had the beef bourguignons and veal escalope, and I thought they were excellent. Lovely, lovely, lovely. I definitely look forward to my next meal here to try the other dishes.

Parc Brasserie is an authentic french restaurant in the heart of Philadelphia! I ordered the Rabbit Tagliatelle, it was exquisite. The location makes the place even more attractive, situated right next to the Rittenhouse Square Parc. It was one of the best nights in Philly.

Yes, the roasted chicken really lives up to the hype! The mashed potatoes almost steal the show, however. I went to Parc solo and the hostesses didn't even bat an eye about offering to seat me at a table, though I ultimately opted for a spot at the bar. The bartender was outstanding, with prompt and friendly service--he fully endorsed... More

Parc is a favorite restaurant for us when we visit Philadelphia. It is located on Rittenhouse Square and the seats outside or just inside the restaurant overlooking the square are great for people-watching. The menu is extensive with lots of French specialities which are very flavorful and well-prepared The restaurant serves delicious bread and the steak frites is tasty. It... More

The Parc is a wonderful spot on Rittenhouse Square for a light breakfast. Lunch and dinner are Both great but don't miss their yogurt parfait. I do wish they had a baguette with unsalted butter like we get in Paris but the parfait is really a deal at 6 bucks.

This is a wonderful slice of 1920 Paris in downtown Philly. The décor, the staff and the food were excellent. It is a bit pricey, but for a special event its totally worth it.
