Parc, great food and great location.

Our overall experience was great. We were there with friends. We started with a great cheese plate. Had Foie Gras, Escargot, Onion Soup, Mushroom soup. All very good. We had the Beef Bourguignon which was excellent and the Rabbit Pappardelle also excellent. For dessert we had the Pot De Creme... read more

This is a great Rittenhouse sq. Bistro. The food is excellent and consistent. It's generally packed but you usually find a table of seat at the bar. I ate here often when I lived nearby out of convenience mainly, but do so less since moving, there are better places to eat in the city. My main dislike was all Rittenhouse... More

Several business associates and I who were originally from Philly decided to go back to Parc Brasserie for dinner. What makes PB so special is its great food, wonderful ambiance and its location on Rittenhouse square in the heart of the city. My mushroom soup and Trout Amondine were both fantastic. Simple, very flavorful and just what you need to... More

I visited " Parc" with my daughter and we have a pleasant and tasty experience. My " steak au poivre" was perfect and my daughter chicken was delicious.The bread that accompanied the meal was excellent. Don't skip the desserts. The "tarte au citron" was delicate and perfect combination of sweet and lemony taste.

A favorite spot for any meal alone, with friends or couples dinner meals this is always a great place to dine. The feeling is wonderfully French. The decor and the menus reflect a French bistro and if you do feel it with everything here. My friend and I had glasses of wine and beautifully presented salads. We opted for profiteroles... More

This place is great. For a lot of reasons. Great for Steak Frites and other Galic inspired fare. Great for the incredible ambiance. You really feel like you are in Paris. Great for the bathrooms, shipped directly from some place in France (what are they doing w/o their facilities one might ask....). And great for service. From the host staff... More

Had a lovely lunch at this restaurant. The ambiance was perfect - felt like I was in Europe. Service was top; was checked on the appropriate amount of times without it feeling like a waiter was hovering. Food was delicious - the right portions at a cost that was a little high but still worth it for the ambiance and... More

What a delightful brunch we had here. The restaurant is on Rittenhouse Square. It is a beautiful old building with period details Inside. There are some wonderful Art Deco tiles on the wall that look handmade. Everything about it says Paris. If you look out through the wall of windows at the front of the house, you see the awnings...
