“Tasty, Friendly, Open Air, Euro”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

This restaurant is located on the Rittenhouse Square. It has outdoor seating available and the door/windows open during the warmer seasons.

The staff is very friendly and attentive. You will be greeted instantaneously. There is a bar if tables are not immediately available. The bar is host to some locals that are decently dressed and no one is ordering shots of tequila.

The location has a nice candle like dimly lit Euro feel to it with wide open spaces of a cafe/bistro. The menu has delicious options of flavors and a daily special. My favourite is the trout with thinly sliced almonds in a glaze. The bread here passed the test of my German friends. It is tempting to fill yourself on just the bread.

The staff was attentive and always anticipating our needs with a smile.

This venue can be used for friends, family, romance, and business.

“Delicious brunch”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Parc definitely has the French vibe going very well. The place was really packed and noisy on saturday afternoon but we were seated within 10 minutes ( of course we had a reservation ). Our table ordered the chicken and lamb sandwich, fries and apple cider . Everything was really delicious and portions were large. The bread basket was tasty. I really love the food . Definitely a place to come for a lively dinning but not a quite one. Looking forward to going back for dinner

“Wonderful food, extraordinary service, thank you to Amadou!!”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

My young niece came in from the west coast and I took her to Parc to get re-acquainted on a raw, rainy day just before Thanksgiving. We both loved the food and the cozy bistro atmosphere, but what really impressed us was the kindness of a wonderful employee (not our waitperson-- a water/ bread server maybe?) named Amadou. He overheard us say (jokingly) that it was too bad the napkins were cloth, otherwise we'd wrap up the rest of our (utterly delicious) bread and take it home. Amadou not only whipped out a fresh napkin (which we proceeded to take with our bread wrapped in it!) but also surprised us with a bag containing a big container of bread as we were departing the restaurant! Now that's a class act, and I'll be back because of it (and because the beet salad was the best I'd ever had...)

“Very good food, nice atmosphere, family-friendly”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

We go to Philly once a year and go for diner there every time. The food is very good, the atmosphere is festive and busy in a good way - with many Parisian touches. The fun starts at the breadbasket with a cranberry/walnut bread that's unbelievable. Desserts are all great, so is wine list. Service is attentive, but relaxed. Very open to families.

Prices aren't really cheap but in line with the excellent location right on rittenhouse square.
