A little bit of Paris right here in Philly. Always a smart crowd, all day long. Good food, great people watching, best bread in the world.

I've been to Parc over 10 times in the past several years. The food is always top notch. I adore the 1/2 roast chicken, ravioli appetizer, steak fritte and on and on. The chicken liver appetizer is also mouth watering. I enjoy their wine list. The only inconsistency has been level of service. It's ranged from superior to poor.

I'll keep it short: The inside is cozy and the warm lighting definitely has a french bistro feel to it. The onion soup is really good, probably the best I've had in Philadelphia. The pasta dish I had for my entree was okay, but nothing really special. It's a great date spot, but be wary of the deserts as they... More

A great location right on Rittenhouse square - I picked based on TA reviews and largely based on location. On a Sat night in Jan it was bustling (read very noisy and crowded) We got a lovely window table which was nice. Food was just OK - both duck and skate were overly salty, the green beans smothered in butter.... More

This was our second time at Parc and it was just as nice as we remembered it. The reception is very friendly, as are the servers. The menu is varied with many French bistro favorites such as onion soup, duck, pâté. The bread basket is outstanding with house-baked baguette, honey wheat sourdough, and our favorite, cranberry walnut. Starters were the... More

Everything about Parc on Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia is perfect. A French brasserie has been reproduced in Philly. The service was fantastic, fresh water frequently, items requested that were not exactly on the menu... The curry chicken salad was indescribable delicious. Looking for a nice lunch in Philly; this is the place.

This place has a good vibe. The bread basket is all baked on premises and the rye wheat sourdough was my favorite. All were good. We went at 4:00 and the full menu was not available until 5:00. Two of us got steak fries and it was great. My husband got trout almandine that was also very good. The mushroom... More

My family and I always go to Parc for Christmas Eve and it has always been perfect. This year, not so much. Pushy waiter and obnoxious about the wine we ordered. However, one waiter will not spoil our tradition.

I've been here twice to meetup with my girlfriends for lunch. Both visits we had our babies with us. The staff is always friendly and patient with us and the food is DELICIOUS! I got the shrimp salad both times because it is perfection on a plate. The restaurant's architecture is also beautiful and it feels a little like you've... More

I dined at Parc back in October with my husband when we were in town for a wedding. It has a lovely ambiance that genuinely resembles a French brasserie (without the attitude). The service was very good - our server paid attention to us but didn't hover or intrude upon us. I ordered the Parisian Ham Baguette, which was delicious... More
