    The food is very good, though not very creative. And go for the outdoor seating if you can. The inside is very pretty, feels kind of lifeless. It's always more fun to watch the park instead.

    A place to see and be seen--very large space and decent outdoor seating. Largely solid menu of French brasserie classics.

    Very nice lunch spot. Must recommend the salmon tartine with a Belgium triple 👌

    Looking for the best baguette in the city? You can get them here for $3. Just ask for one at the host stand. Baked fresh daily.

    Great food, great atmosphere. I have been here a number of times. I dont honestly recall what I ate, but I have never been unhappy.

    Try the crab galette, pommes puree, warm shrimp salad and the onion gratin. The whole menu is good. The view is incredible and the staff is well trained.

    Try to make a reservation on weekends other wise, you might have to settle for a 1 hour wait. Al fresco dining and indoor dining have their own waiting list, put your name down for both!

    Excellent eggs Norwegian. And one of the best croissants I've ever had with house made condiments.

    Last weekend, the food, wine, service, ambience all combined to make an elegant dining experience. In particular, the attention of Kelly our Server, and Andrea the Manager were quite exemplary:-))

    This, along with the other restaurants on the street, has a great view of Rittenhouse Square, especially from the patio filled with tables for two.

    CREME BRÛLÉE. But also the crabcake, Mac and cheese and cheese plate. Also the French 75 cocktail if you're a fan of gin.

    The egg white omelette feels like eating a heavenly cloud, don't forget the rich butter in the bread basket, top it off with a Bellini!

    Bread basket looks too healthy to be good but try the cranberries and walnuts one. Country chicken club comes between two buttery pieces of toast. Risk leaving here feeling like a beached whale.

    Prime Rittenhouse location with a view of the park! Great brunch/lunch. Try the chicken club or one of the omelets. One of the best bloody Mary's in town. Great for people watching!

    Today, this place is perfect. A light. Delicious lunch with an old friend and a carafe of merlot on a perfect sunny first day of summer. I look around and pretend I am in France.

    No need to wait for outside seating. Get inside and ask for the tables by the window. Great brunch spot with yummy pastries.

    Grab a table outside on 18th street. Perfect people watching spot. Escargot and rabbit parpadalle were amazing.

    I HIGHLY recommend the French toast. The hazelnut butter is to die for.

    For breakfast, avoid the Eggs Basquaise. Polenta and eggs with spicy saucisson sounded simply scrumptious, but the polenta was surprisingly soupy. Next time I'll return to my favorite: quiche lorraine

    Dress fashionably. The French hostess with the severe black bangs notices diners with a bit of European flair—and seats them at prime tables by the windows.

    Love going here for brunch on my trips to Philly. Been here multiple times and never leave dissatisfied! I always get a cappuccino and yogurt parfait - fresh and yummy!

    Journey to this Parisian-inspired brasserie right on Rittenhouse Square! Its traditional French bistro classics, like French onion soup and escargots, are delightful along with an expansive wine list.

    When the weather is nice, grab an outside seat overlooking Rittenhouse Square. The Romarin and Basilic cocktails are must-haves, as are the pommes frites.

    Try the Polenta and Eggs Basquaise - Creamy polenta with tiny bits of salt, spicy sausage and tomatoes capped off with perfectly poached eggs.

    Brunch was "ok". High volume/turnaround. Somebody's moneymaker. Great space and location. Might try for dinner. (2 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    I enjoyed the truffle gnocchi. My friend got the wild mushroom pastry. I'm getting that next time! Outrageous desserts too!

    Be clear with your order or they'll bring it out in the wrong order e. p. Bring the entree before the appetizer

    Oysters and a Warm Shrimp Salad are a great lunch combo. If you're in a big group, go for the Grand Plateau.

    It’s the beautiful atmosphere that makes the $11 cocktails go down easier. And if you ever need a temporary escape, the Parisian bar might be one of the least Philly-feeling places in the entire city.

    The moules frites is great! Even better than what I had in Paris. However the sorbet was kinda disappointing.

    Macaroni au gratin is gruyere decadence. You must have the warm shrimp salad for lunch with a side of pomme frites and don't you dare ask for ketchup.

    The petit plateau is neither petit nor a plateau. Discuss. And order it. The most economical and pretty amazing raw bar platter you and 3 friends won't finish.

    Cute French restaurant. Very good quality food and nice outdoor seating. For breakfast the bacon is great and the hazelnut moca is must try for brekfast

    This chic brasserie serving traditional bistro fare has the freshest baguettes since they make it in-house. You cannot go wrong ordering their Artisanal cured meats or Steak Frittes.

    I had the Duck Confit, it was amazing. Not too salty not too greasy. Perfectly French. My red wine was the Boujelais Villages.... better than the noveau.

    Outstanding entrées include boeuf bourguignon with fresh buttered pasta and steak frites with peppercorn sauce. Fridays: try the seafood-rich bouillabaisse. Sundays: go for the coq au vin.

    Last time I went there had great escargots, broiled half-spring chicken, and a Yards ESA... Great outdoor seating facing Rittenhouse Square... They also have a great brunch on Sundays.
