Absolutely loved the restaurant atmosphere and decor. Could have stayed all nite just for that. We had dinner reservations and sat at table but stopped after apps. My shrimp were decent. My husband had charcuterie and he said he has had much better. We didn't want to spend more money there for just decent food. Expected more. I would go... More

The decor is like Bistros we have been to in France. The menu is French in a very bistro friendly way and is not at all stuffy. The place is very loud and boisterous. The service can be a little hurried but is adequate. The food is always good and the prices reasonable. We went with kids and it is... More

I'm giving this restaurant 1 star because the food was pretty good; nothing extraordinary, and overpriced (though not for the area), but reasonably tasty. And the room itself was quite lovely. Service: The worst waitress I've ever experienced in a restaurant of this class. Surly; angry; unbelievable attitude. No introduction. Not one smile throughout. She obviously hated working there, and... More

A solid French Bistro. Like your eating in France. I just love it! Definitely go and enjoy a good meal in a traditional French fashion. Great, well trained, professional staff. And a nice wine list to boot.

Part of a well regarded local restaurant dynasty, this large restaurant features outdoor seating, but my favorite tables are the window tables when the large glass walls are open. This is a very popular place...reservations are a good idea, but you will be accommodated if you did not plan ahead. Lots of hard surfaces result in a fairly noisy atmosphere.... More

Recently went to the Parc with a group of 14 people. Because of the size they insisted on a pre-arranged menu. At first I was disappointed that we couldn't pick off the main menu, but our selections were diverse so there was something for everyone. I highly recommend the escargot! They were incredible, in a wonderful garlic sauce (almost like... More

I was visiting Philadelphia for work and had a free evening on my own. I got there about 6:30pm on a Tuesday without a reservation and had no problem being seated at a table right away (though I'd offered to sit at the bar if that would be easier). The restaurant was less than half full when I arrived, but... More
