We had the steak tartare as a starter, very tasty indeed. Then as main dishes the poached salmon which had a slightly fishy taste to it but the garnishing was excellent. Dessert was a blueberry tart which was tasty. Portions are definitely à la française... I live between Paris and Barcelona so I feel that this type of bistro/brasserie fare... More

We had our first dinner experience at Parc, dinning with our grown daughter who loves French food. The experience was outstanding in every way. All of the food we ordered was prepared perfectly. Don't miss the Mussels, gazpacho or the Lamb Shank. Our waiter Andrew was top notch and very helpful guiding us on ordering and suggesting wine options. The... More

Ate here about 3 months ago and recently came home from a trip to Paris. The food at Parc was every bit as good as what I ate in Paris. Escargot was especially good. Nice restaurant. You won't be disappointed.

A very popular place with lots of people, but still very charming. Had shrimp cocktail and boullabaise. Both were excellent. The service was outstanding and will go there Again.

This authentic french restaurant sits right across from Rittenhouse Square. Lovely venue with lots of outside seating. The wait was long but the service was great. My nicoise salad was fresh and delicious but I had to ask for bread. Overall I enjoyed my experience but be prepared to spend a lot of money and wait a while to be... More

We sort of stumbled into Parc on Labor Day, not realizing that the holiday meant brunch. But, it was very good. The rooms are loud with happy young people, the food is good, the service is fast and pleasant. It seemed the place to be seen, and to be social with friends.

My best dining experience while in Philadelphia, and the best overall for a long time. I would almost travel from New York just to eat here! Inside it has the atmosphere of a French Brasserie and they have tables outside looking across to Rittenhouse Square. I had trouble choosing because everything on the menu was tempting. They had all my... More

This is some of the best French Bistro food on the east coast and the location is wonderful. Its worth any wait to sit on the street across from Rittenhouse Square, enjoy brunch or dinner, and watch eclectic Philly stroll by. We come here at least once per visit to Philly. It is a must do for a fresh break!

Ideal location (in front of Rittenhouse Square); impeccable service. Very very nice brasserie type food at reasonable prices. Excellent oysters; nice wine list. We were there this summer and took a table outside on the side-walk. In the late afternoon as the sun was going and the night was coming in. Beautiful!

The food and the service were outstanding, but the noise level inside is close to motorcycle racing. Everyone seems to talk loud to overcome the basic noise level, increasing the noise even more. If we're there again we'll hold out for a sidewalk table.
