Parc, Winner of 8 Hour Magazine 2017 Best of Detroit Awards, features “Redefined Detroit Cuisine.” Our menu is inspired by the influences and flavors of Detroit’s vast cultural communities, both past and present. Our menu gives tribute to this rich history, and offers guests familiar yet refined expressions of traditional Midwestern foods, with influences of French and Mediterranean flavors and styles.

Located in the heart of the award-winning Campus Martius Park, PARC features more than 100 feet of Nanaglass window walls to provide guests with clear, 270-degree views of downtown Detroit.

Our restaurant and bar is spacious yet intimate, and features a wide, welcoming center bar. Our kitchen is small but mighty, a testament to the phrase “big things come in small packages.” We’re proud of our wood-fired grill, which allows our chef team to create a range of delicious, unique dishes that excite the soul.

Made reservations because of some great things I heard, but it turned out to fell short of expectations. Atmosphere was very loud and there appeared to be zero dress code, despite the business causal code outlined. People were seated wearing bikinis practically. The food was good, but not a great dining experience for a couple wishing to have a night out. I could barely hear my girlfriend from across the table. The service was also very rushed and transactional, not genuine at all. I think it would be a great place for drinks after work, but it fell short as an upscale restaurant you’d want to go to for a date.

My twin and I where at Parc for Brunch on our birthday with a cousin and the food was great, we ordered off the menu. they do offer a buffet as a option but it was not appealing looking at all. They actually should remove that it’s not a good look for the amazing place Parc is ..we also had some amazing cocktails and our server Scott was awesome ..

Excellent food and service. Server expectation was that we were there for the evening so dinner was almost three hours. It is very loud and the table next to us was drunk and yelling so that didn’t help. I would go back for the food and service but try to eat outside.

Good service and enjoyable atmosphere. The drinks were excellent especially the old fashioned. The food was good but not exceptional. So given the costs and expectations the food is a bit above average at least for me

#1 is the location....beautiful in the park setting with fountain, all surrounded by glass to the outside makes it very energetic. The food is very good, not nouveau, etc., just very good sound food with a little flair. Service was great. Not sure if I would consider it "romantic" though there were a few nice looking round booths tucked away at some of the corners that might be nice for a couple....will try to request some time but we were with a group this time.

We were celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary and like most upscale restaurants we’ve been to in the past you receive a complimentary dessert, Parc did not offer this which was disappointing.

Although the ambiance was lovely, I think we got an off-night with Parc. Our food (a filet) was cooked improperly and the manager told us it was not. We also saw several dishes go back to the kitchen after being brought out. The chicken dish was ok, but the vegetables on the side had no seasoning.

This is a very expensive place. Oysters to start. Not a 1/2 dozen here, it's 5. And they put spices and garlic on them. Ruined the bryme I like. The price and quality of the dry aged steak is ridiculous. I should have asked, but the rib-eye was $95 and I asked for it medium rare, it came out still mooing. It's already cut for you so I was stuck with a very under-cooked and expensive steak.

Parc has become one of my go-to places as it usually has it all..great food, service and location. I usually give this restaurant 5 stars across the board, but I couldn't do it this time around. Was there for Sunday brunch (if you want a bit of everything, I highly recommend the buffet with it's "elevated" style and cuisine). We arrived at 10:30 when the restaurant opened, and the there was coffee on my chair and food under the table...not acceptable for the first diners of the day. Our server was fantastic..knowledgable, personable and attentive, however, it took a long time for plates to be cleared from our table (since the majority of our party had the buffet, this was an important issue). We were stacking used plates in piles ourselves or putting them on the empty table next to ours. These are minor issues, put for someone who has been to Parc before it was a little disappointing. Will still go back and try again, and recommend other diners to give Parc a try!

On my OpenTable reservation I put it was for my husbands 50th birthday. They didn't even acknowledge or ask us. I asked for a separate table instead of the community seating and was told those were for reservations which we also had. The individual tables were empty for the whole time we were there. Other than the fact that we sat next to two other tables less than a foot apart and the server couldn't even put the food on the our table without passing it over our heads to put onto the table it was fine. They should get rid that part separate the tables a bit more so you can actually have a conversation with the person you are with,

We came to Parc for our wedding anniversary. Our server was very friendly and knew the menu well. She checked on us frequently but not so much that is felt obtrusive. Our food was so flavorful. We were also served an amazing anniversary dessert that was both beautiful and delicious! It was a little pricey for day to day dining but was great for a special occasion. We have already recommended Parc to our friends and family!

The setting is gorgeous and it is so cool to see how alive Downtown is! There was a concert in Campus Martin’s the day we had lunch which also made the atmosphere fun and alive. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the service was friendly and prompt. Food was amazing. My favorite was actually what my colleague got: you pick 2 with the chopped salad and spaghetti I. Amazing and fresh pesto on the pasta. I got the downtown (a veggie burger) and it was delicious and difficult to tell it wasn’t beef! Some one else got the Parc burger and that looked amazing too. Saddest part was I had no room to try the amazing sounding desserts! Biggest bummer is the parking downtown.

Poor food quality. The first loaf of bread was burnt on the bottom. As soon as it arrived at the table the burnt odor was very strong. The server should have known. The crab pasta included shells and was not cleaned properly. The location is somewhat distracting with the beach and many persons walking in or to the front door to review menu and then leaving. We were celebrating our anniversary and were surprised we didn’t get a comp dessert as most fine restaurants do.

Overall we really enjoyed our visit to Parc. The food was excellent, as was the wine. The waitstaff was very efficient, and friendly. It was our 40th anniversary, and we chose Parc as we had heard such great reviews. They were all true.

Our only disappointment was the noise level (above 70 decibels), and well as the fact that the tables were very close together. We felt as if we were dining with the adjacent table. We did have a nice conversation with them, as as as the table next to THEM, which was also close enough to converse with. That said, for a special anniversary, we thought we would have dinner just the two of us....

From the level of the food, as well as the price range, we were expecting a lively, but not so loud environment, and a little space.
