    Felt like snails, steak au poivre and steak frites so we ordered all of them. Parc did not disappoint. Recommend the tuna carpaccio also. Cocktails are strong here too, the Le Negroni was fantastic.

    I had the salmon provençal and I totally loved it - the oranges complement so well the rest of the dish 👌🏼 Try it with a white wine 😍

    Everything is good here, but especially the salmon tartine! Even just the bread basket with butter is much better than most American restaurants. Worth the higher prices in my opinion.

    I had brunch on a cool fall Sunday morning. The buttermilk pancakes were very fluffy. I had the steak and egg's, loved that they didn't skimp on the egg's. Shallots and herb butter on steak 🙌🏾🙌🏾

    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!

    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.

    Sidecar cocktail, cheese plate & bread basket are heavenly. Outdoor seating facing the park, spacious and elegant inside. Tables are dinner only and first come first served - it's packed on weekends!

    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.

    Jeremy is the most amazing waiter! So happy and helpful and ready to offer any help needed with the menu! The mussels and veal are amazing, not to mention the breads! Awesome!

    I came in on Monday Labor Day for brunch and there were a lot of people here already. Walked right in and got seat for 3 with no wait. Would recommend to anyone visiting and would enjoy going back!

    Want to be in France without actually being in France? Take a trip to Parc to try the ½ Lb Lobster and Onion Soup Gratinee. Eat while sitting outside overlooking Rittenhouse Square!

    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:-))

    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

    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!

    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.

    Best pommes puree ever! Great menu and great staff. U will b pampered. Try to sit outside on a nice day.

    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.

    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.

    Take a trip to Parc on a Wednesday so you can try the Lobster Risotto. Fantastic! Save some room for dessert and try the Apple Tarte.

    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.

    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.

    Rachel ShifmanJune 10, 2016
    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.

    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!

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

    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.

    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.
  • Kelly G.
    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
