This was the second time I've eaten at Parc. Again, very disappointed. Our table wasn't ready when we arrived even though there were several empty tables available. They were out of bread and served us toast!!! Our server was MIA and his description of my meal, which was undercooked, was totally inaccurate. One glass of wine cost $22.00. The only redeeming part of our meal was the view of the beautiful Christmas tree and the skating rink at Campus Martius Park. It is very unfortunate that a restaurant of this caliber with a great location is such a disappointment.

We started with Oysters on the half-shell, to go with our remaining vodka cocktails from the Bar - very tasty! We then had a delicious dinner of King Crab Taglietelle, and Branzino - both being excellent, but the latter being an even more notable dish with a bold flavor that got both our attention. And it was all well complemented by a nicely-oaked bottle of Stags Leap Karia Chardonnay...

Service and ambiance were terrific. The vibrant view of the Campus Martius scene was also very enjoyable. I had to send back my Salmon because it wasn't cooked as I requested. However, they were courteous and apologetic about the mistake. Once it was cooked to the right temperature it was excellent. It was fairly quiet inside for the lunch hour which I appreciated for a business meeting. My client was very pleased with the entire experience. He works in the downtown area so it was a very convenient location to walk to. Parking can be a challenge here, but these days it seems to be an issue all around the downtown area. Good for Detroit!

Brunch not well prepared. Food cold not made to order. Eggs were premixed scrambled (tasted like powdered eggs). Toast was rock hard and cold. Best part was the view and the live music (That guy was fabulous!!!). Wait staff slow and not very attentive and often distracted. Menu weak. This is my 3rd visit. It was fabulous when first opened but I see a major decline in quality. Will return only for drinks, snack and views. No parking or validation. Much better restaurants within walking distance.

I enjoyed our meal but not as much as my last time there, when my sparkling water was served in a nice wine glass. This time it was in an ordinary tumbler. Ok, but not as special. Also, my friend wanted to order a panini and was told she had to have it exactly as listed on the menu because they were made in advance that morning and then put on the press when ordered. A panini is something that you should be able to get made to order. Panera does this for much less. A nice lunch out but not totally impressed.

I was dining with a business colleague who was in from Florida. I first took him on a tour of Detroit and wanted to end with something special. The visit to Parc was a big hit. With the view of the Xmas tree and the ice skating rink it would be hard to beat, unless you were in New York.
The service and the food were outstanding. Every course was excellent. The menu is like non else. This is a dining experience that you must undertake. A AAA + evening!

Our waiter was attentive and accommodating, the food was on point, flavorful and encompassed a nice variety of traditional breakfast foods, as well as seafood, croissants, desserts, etc. We all got the all you can eat buffet, grazed and chatted for hours. We'll definitely be back for both brunch and will give dinner a try.

We went for a family lunch outing with our two college aged children before going to the DIA for the Monet Exhibit. The setting was wonderful - to watch the skaters and christmas tree was great. While the food was good - it was not outstanding for the price. I would have liked a glass of wine the the prices were ridiculous. We travel to Europe and have no problem with paying appropriately - but I do not think the PARC wine prices are appropriate. My daughter asked to subsitute fries and they came after she was 3/4 done with her sandwich. I ordered appetizer for my meal and no one asked if I wanted it with the rest of parties main course - so it came before others. Then our party of 4's plates came out one at a time and we had to wait for the 4th dinner. Too bad as the ability to look at the outside is great but not sure I would return...

This was our fifth time to Parc and have to say it will be our last. The location is spectacular....especially this time of year with the tree and skating rink just steps away. The rib appetizer and my entree- Bronzino were both good! My husband ordered the filet medium and sent it back four times to be cooked. The fourth time the edges were well done and the center still raw. He ate the edges and left the rest. Although they didn’t charge us for his meal, it was a huge disappointment! I ate alone and he hardly ate at all. Also, tables by the door are exceptionally cold in the winter! Because of the poor service, we won’t be back. Too many other hot spots in the city now to pick from!

Snappy, modern decor, yet inviting. Smaller space, a bit tight around the bar while waiting to be seated, it’s really a thruway to get to the rest rooms. Totally festive feeling looking over the holiday lights of Campus Martius Park. Tasty cocktail with a cinnamon sugared rim. Pasta entree with crab was tasty, a bit skimpy on the crab meat. Salads, fresh and lightly dressed. We had no dessert. Attentive, genuine service. Also a nice spot in the warmer months when they open the windows to the fountain and park.

We had a wonderful experience here! Celebrating our friend’s birthday at a table that overlooked the Christmas tree and skating rink was awesome. Wait staff were helpful, attentive and friendly. We shared two delicious salads and each had an entree. The salmon, trout, prawns and mushroom pasta were all excellent. The baked Alaska flamed tableside was a wonderful ending to an exceptional meal.

Been wanting to try this restaurant. My kids gave me a gift card for my birthday and I started trying to go. First, it was nearly impossible to get a reservation for 6-7pm time range on weekends. I had this week off, so we decided to go the day after Xmas. We were able to get a reservation pretty easy.

We arrived on time and were seated immediately. We were put at a high-top. I should have instantly asked to be moved. It was directly behind the hostess station and right next to an electronic device that printed out drink orders or something and also there was busing tubs at the same location. Every server squeezed between our table and the pole constantly through out the meal to get the print-outs, stuff for table settings and trips to the bar.

The additional sour note on the ambiance was the music. We thought it was a classy restaurant and we were in the mood for a relaxing dining experience. The music was a loud mix of hip hop and was just too high energy, the vibe was completely wrong. I also could barely hear out server, he wasn't a real loud talker and we were right under a speaker, which make matters worse. Our waiter was very attentive.

We split a salad that is new on their menu. It was good. My date ordered "Scottish Salmon" It was very well prepared, cooked perfectly to her liking. Nothing special though in regards to seasoning or presentation. I had the Veal which was really good. We ordered a side of Broccoli that was mostly a rock hard stem with a few flower tops. I would pass on the broccoli next time. The drinks - excellent.

A lot of my overall opinion was based on where we were seated. With the constant foot traffic and being right adjacent to where the staff hung out when they weren't serving stunk. Also we didn't have a good view of the skating and tree and one of the seats only option was to face the bar.

For $150 meal, it was one of my bottom 5 experiences, but I checked it off the bucket list. One and Done.

Way too noisy. We had made reservation far in advance. There was an open table by the window opposite the rink and I asked hostess if we could have that table rather than the one she gave us by the bathrooms. She said no., she was saving it for a large group. When we left there were three guys (millennials) sitting there. Was she practicing age discrimination? I was definitely not pleased!!! But the food was excellent.

Made reservations for two on my birthday through the Open Table app. When my wife and I arrived. The host asked if we preferred a high top or a table with booth seating. We opted for the booth and one of the men attending to us was quick to clear the other two settings on the table, fill our waters and introduce himself as someone we could ask items of if needed. SO to Martez! Josh waited on us. Took our drinks and was very attentive even though he was helping with a large party that was there. He answered all our questions about the menu was quick with getting our drinks. The sweet potato salad and bread were excellent. My wife loved her Lamb rigitone and I ordered the cowboy style ribeye medium rare. Steak was beyond perfect, delicious and a great recommendation from Josh as the special that night. Portions were large enough for a small take him box.
Martez kept our waters full and was great in packing our left overs. I would definitely recommend dining here. It is intimate, felt a bit loud, but I’ll blame the party. Everything was excellent start to finish. Thanks Parc for a very memorable evening!

Food was very tasty.
Mussels were delicious and the sweet potato and apple salad was very good. Lamb rigotoni for the entree was very good but I was surprised it was ground lamb. It was offered as a ragout and I thought it would have been shredded leg of lamb instead. So I was surprised to see the dish as it was.

Very, very, very noisy restaurant.
