Last Thursday I had dinner at Parc with a friend. I have had all 3 meals there many a time over the years. A month ago I discovered they have "Badoit", my favorite sparkling water. For Badoit lovers, it's a big deal to b able to find it outside of France. Even in Switzerland I cannot find it in most... More

Parc is lovely. The atmosphere is lively and the food is fantastic. It tastes like Julia Child made dinner for you. There are French classics: Steak Au Poivre, Boeuf Bourginon, Roasted Chicken, etc. and the prices are not terribly high, nor is the ambience too formal or stuffy. Terrific service and great bread. Terrific outdoor seating and open to Rittenhouse... More

This is quite a large restaurant and I loved the look of it. My friend and I decided to meet for coffee and she had not eaten breakfast, so I suggested we go to Parc. We sat on the left side just beyond the outdoor tables. That's a little busy because the waiters must go there to get food. My... More

Top notch brasserie. Great Parisian atmosphere, friendly and competent wait staff and perfectly prepared food. Trifecta! No cheap but you get what you pay for. My new favorite in Philly!

Great atmosphere and great food!! We asked what the server recommended and we weren't disappointed. The appetizer of the sampler was incredible.

Make a reservation in advance. This place is very popular and once you spend an evening there, you'll know why. We waited 45 minutes but their extensive list of cocktails, wine and beer made the wait a pleasure. I had the heirloom tomato salad and the scallops and I was in heaven from the first bite. We found the staff... More

Glad we found Parc Restaurant because we had very good diners 3 nights in a row. We had the wonderful truite amandine, the salmon, the bœuf bourguignon, hamburger and the steak. Try not to eat too much of their good bread to be able to enjoy the good food. If you like butter, you're in luck.

I eaten here a few times for lunch. It has a great location with views of Rittenhouse Square. There are tables outside but I prefer the seats that are inside but at the windows which are left open during the warmer seasons. It's a big, busy restaurant and service has always been excellent. Food is very good with a few... More
