The food was very good. We went before a show at the Fox and food came out quickly. We ordered an appetizer but it didn't come out, our main course showed up and we asked about it. They ended up comping it and felt bad/apologized. The steak was phenomenal but you don't get much for the price. The atmosphere is good and the wine list is HUGE. I would recommend coming here for drinks and appetizers in the summer when the patio is open and the fountain is on. I could see it being a lot more fun then. Overall is was a good experience but not sure I need to go back anytime soon.
Food was amazing the Veal and the Mushroom Tagliatelle. The sommelier made a couple great recommendations when our initial selection was sold out.
Service was exceptional.
The main entrance was closed with construction being done. Should have had a sign at the entrance. So many people walked around building and then had to come back and “find” their way in.
Our only negative was being the server and server assistants multiple times took an item off the table before we were done with it.
Great location, disappointing service. Seated, then waited too long for cocktail menu, then too long for the actual cocktail... although it appeared that plenty of help was wandering around the restaurant. Had to catch waitperson's eye at each step, disappointing for this kind of place. Food on arrival was not hat enough, but certainly tasty and innovative.
Our waiter-Mike, was fantastic! He paid attention to all of the details-when to come to the table,making recommendations for the table to share items, keeping our drinks full....we didn’t have to ask for much. He was always one step ahead! Our apps were mussels, oysters, duck and sweet potato apple salad! Love then all. Mussels are a must! Then the four of us split steak (aged to perfection), salmon and wild mushroom pasta! Wrapped it up with baked Alaska and a chocolate hazelnut brownie. Loved the whole experience! We will be back!
Great atmosphere and food.
I love the setting and atmosphere. Our server was excellent. I was very disappointed in the food. Chicken was very tough and bland. Ordered a dessert which I had had a few months ago and loved. This time the dessert was very disappointing and I had highly recommended it to my friend. Guess it depends on who the chef is that day. Yes, I’ll probably go back just for apps and wine.
We are a small group (three couples) who get together to celebrate anniversaries and other occasions. Aside from the noise level during a busy lunch hour, we were very happy with the service and food selection. Parc is located in the heart of a revived Detroit downtown and since the day was pleasant and relatively warm, the area was alive with people. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
A great spot downtown for a business lunch or dinner, always a great experience, thank you
My husband and I celebrated our 15th anniversary at Parc. The food was amazing and the staff was absolutely wonderful. We will be coming here again.
We had lunch at parc during the week. Noise level was low because it was not crowded. The food was underwhelming (grain bowl with salmon). Actually, the salmon was fine but the grain bowl was not. Hard (supposedly roasted) veggies and not a lot of grain. The yogurt sauce was tasteless. Tuna tartare was good. It’s a pretty room and all, it lunch, at least, needs work.
The food came out in about 5 minutes after our order was placed - leading us to believe it wasn't cooked fresh. This was confirmed on first bite - everything was cold and the toast was as hard as a rock. They had live entertainment, but it was far too loud. Will not be returning.
Top notch all around. Very enjoyable meal
Overrated! Was not worth the drive from suburbs. Fancy restaurant want to be..., there are plenty of better alternatives in the city at this price point.
Had a wonderful time, once again! Top-notch service, amazing food, scenic view! Worth the drive and worth the cost...GO!
I ordered the lamb and it was VERY fatty! Not worth the price I paid for it $48 for a meal and I left hungry! Not impressed at all!
Excellent food, amazing service, and lively atmosphere!
Pedestrian menu. Overall meal was inconsistent from plate to plate. I’d stay away from pasta dishes. Meat and seafood was better. Extremely noise. Too crowded. But very nice views and staff were very friendly. I’d go back but with lowered expectations.
Awesome all around
This was not my first experience at Parc, so I can report that I was once again impressed. The steak and potatoes lunch option was a treat.
Very loud, ran out of the baked bread and the trout, long wait for a table
First time there for food. Creative menu and ridiculously long wine list. Very loud so not recommended as a date place. Hard to hear and it's pretty packed in. Have had drinks at bar at a prior visit and it's a great place for creative cocktalis. Service was a little over the top for my liking. The wait person and Sommelier were helpful but came by the table A LOT, which some people may like, just not me. Overall great experience and food was excellent. I am looking forward to going back when all the sliding doors can be opened. Definitely worth the stop!
The location is a lot of fun and the service was outstanding. Having seen Parc celebrated as Restaurant of the Year, we were a little disappointed with the food. We both had fish, the branzino and the trout. Both were prepared and tasted remarkably similar, which was a little disappointing. More importantly they tasted good, but not drive-downtown good. Perhaps Parc is better with meat dishes. Overall, our experience was good and we might go back — it's so good to have restaurants like this in downtown Detroit, and the setting and ambience feels more like New York or Paris, with the big glass walls overlooking the fountain and the city — but perhaps temper your expectations food-wise.
Would have given five stars on food but ordered a medium porterhouse and was served rare
The restaurant and service were impeccable. My only complaint is that there is no valet parking, so if you have mobility problems, that would be an issue.
We celebrated my birthday one more time at PARC. My sister had given me a 60$ gift card for my bday, so we arrived early for happy hour and split the chop salad and PARC’s delicious rolls. I had a happy hour glass of wine and he had a mixed drink off the happy hour menu. Delicious. PARC is beautiful even on a rainy day it’s fun to sit in a window and watch everyone go by. Because we’re young I think some of the waitstaff rolled their eyes at us and worried we wouldn’t tip well, but my boyfriend works in the industry as well and I think they were more than happy when we left and ended up getting a bottle of wine, two entrees, and the soup at dinner in addition to our happy hour purchases. I would’ve been happy if I were working because we were one of only 4 tables in the place that night. I wish it had been a bit more lively but perhaps the rain kept people away. That was my second dinner at PARC & the Scottish salmon was delicious once again. I do wish they’d change the menu up more frequently as it was virtually the same as my July visit. The lamb rigatoni was also delicious although they used spaghettini- which I would not mind or complain about at all except that the staff never mentioned the substitution and even asked me how my spag..I mean rigatoni was. Overall great experience.
The food and service were excellent! So many delicious small plates and pastas - I can't wait to go back! The only disappointment was the wine list. The hubby thought it was uninspired and overpriced. We struck out on the first two wines that he picked, which, of course means a long trek for the server to the basement, several minutes of waiting (god forbid I don't have a full glass in my hand the entire time) and then more hemming and hawing on hubby's part. Third time was the charm (although it was a different vintage than what was listed on the menu)! Somm needs to step it up. But Joe and his assistant Moses were on top of everything else!
Very small space. I could not hear my husband over others talking and the music. I ordered chicken and it was terribly dry. My husband had the fish. He wasn’t impressed. Overpriced and over hyped. We won’t be back
I finally got the chance to go here with a friend for a pre-concert meal. It had been impossible to get a reservation, but Mondays must be less busy or the new restaurant novelty is starting to wane. The food was fabulous food, although the menu is somewhat limited. They have an amazing variety of wines, mostly by the bottle. It is very pricey - salad, app as a main, and a glass of wine = $60 with tip!
We enjoyed a fabulous dinner before the Justin Timberlake concert!
We did not know what to expect being from out of town. When we walked up it reminded us of a old time diner just cleaned up. But once inside, we were wowed with a real gem! Very beautifully simple and modern. The menu looked good but the waiter made everything sound so good, that we each got something different so we could taste more of the menu. We were NOT disappointed!!! Delicious, every bite!
Made reservations for Easter; it was not good & I was quite embarrassed! I had heard good things about Parc. If u went w buffet, food was cold; no warmers were under food that should have been staying hot! Side appetizers were lined up on a ledge that just didn’t seem appetizing at all! Ordered from menu, a salmon omelette that was somewhat warm & very small accompanied w an arugula salad that was not all arugula; some other strange looking greens were on plate as well & no dressing on salad...was very disappointed!!!
Easter brunch with family. Nice staff. My issue is that the covering on the chairs is peeling. I noticed several in this condition. Completely threw off the experience. Have eaten there many times before. Will not go back until they are replaced.
Excellent service and food. Look forward to our next visit
Everything was excellent -food, service, & atmosphere!
Although the location for the restaurant (next to Campus Martius Park). I didn't care for it. It was mostly a bar hangout type of place, plus I didn't like how they had a bouncer at the door to turn away potential customers that didn't fit with a certain dress code. I was not turned away only because I had clothes on that met their dress code only because I was going to a musical afterwards. Those potential customers were not people from off the streets. They had on really nice outfits that would be acceptable for the area they were in, but since they didn't have suits or dresses, they were turned away. There are plenty of other restaurants in that area that would not turn away customers like that and have the same quality of food.
Great restaurant and food. I started a little disappointed in my reservation being that, I requested a standard table and none were available when I arrived. Once seated, the staff was very attentive and knowledgeable about what paired perfectly with each meal.
We had a wonderful time celebrating my son’s birthday. I love the ambiance here. The steak and lamb chops were delicious. Seafood was subpar, including oyster appetizer and sea bass. Service was very good.
Went to use the restroom, no paper towels so I went back to my table shaking my hands. I asked for more bread with my meal but it never came.
We went there because it was voted restaurant of the year. We had to make reservations and the place was half dead on a Friday night. I ordered crab legs and got a bowl of dry macaroni with a crab leg in it, including a shell that got stuck in my throat. Additional crab legs are $12. The kale salad was pretty good. The menu looked lame. And they didn't have much of a selection except mostly steaks. My friends samon was very small an ordinary and expensive. Would never go back and would not recommend. The glass walls are pretty cool so you can watch people walk by, if you're into that sort of thing. The server was professional, but she was brought over from another restaurant . Not sure how this place even got in the top 10, none-the-less voted number one.
