Went based on other reviews as 2018's best restaurant in Detroit and it did not disappoint. The Ribs appetizer was great. Filet was cooked to perfection. Would highly recommend.

The overall experience at Parc was great. We were seated a little bit before our reservation time and had to wait a few before any wait staff appeared. The drinks were great but took some time to receive. After that, everything moved along in a timely fashion. I had read reviews about slow service but we were very happy with the dining experience. Some of their signature drinks were quite tasty and the food starting with the appetizers to the dessert were not disappointing. We had reservations at 5 and I was worried about making it to Little Ceasars for an 8:00 concert. But we had plenty of time to spare before the concert start time. The managers made an effort to come around and check on our satisfaction. I would recommend this restaurant.

Wanted to go to Parc for a while, based on reputation, and just walking by. It is very pretty, with a nice ambiance, however the food was not good at all. I ordered the prawns, which were horribly over cooked. My wife ordered the lamb ragu, and the pasta was very undercooked. The price would have been appropriate if the food was properly prepared. We would have complained, but our server never once came back to ask how it was. I would not recommend.

Nice place, but uneven food. Salads were highly over salted. Fish entree was fantastic however 2 pasta dishes were poor. Sauce good, but not much and both pastas were significantly under cooked, not aldente.
Clearly an execution issue. Did advise staff and they agreed, but offered nothing as a goodwill gesture.
Wine list is good but heavily weighted to the expensive side, over $70.
Disappointing experience.

We like the atmosphere, but service was very slow. It took us 1 1/2 hours to eat. There were only two of us. We thought we would have enough time before a concert, but we cut it close. Our reservation was at 5:30pm. We were on time. We didn't get out of there until after 7:00pm. Too long! It took a while for a waiter to serve us and we ordered our meal and drinks immediately. I wouldn't recommend if you have somewhere to go after. The food was good, but we kept waiting for our waiter to come back.

Really enjoyed our evening at Parc. Food was good across the board, I had the King Crab Tagliatelle and it was fantastic. My wife had the jumbo prawns, which she enjoyed. The bread was to die for. The broccoli dish was not cooked well and the only downer. Cocktails, wine, and service were superb. Had the lemon olive oil cake for dessert - excellent.

Pleasant people with potential. The four of us were left at a table with three chairs and a pile of menus. We could barely hear the specials spoken by the server. No discard plate for the mussels, so that was a bit of a challenge. The crab pasta, I’m told, was very nice but they plopped a crab leg, in its shell, inside the dish itself, so that went untouched. Who wants to stick clean hands into an oily bowl of pasta and fumble at extracting crab meat from its shell? The un-serrated steak knives are inefficient at tearing through their meat, but highly effective at tearing through human flesh - it escaped the grasp of the person bringing it to the table and it nicked my wrist as it fell to the floor. It was a very minor inconvenience and I’m only mentioning it because they should consider a better and less pokey version of it in the future.

We were looking forward to the experience as people who eat in Detroit a lot. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. The waiter was not very attentive or communicative except for when he initially have us suggestions. The suggestions were fair- but he had a hard time describing the flavors of our choices to direct us. They brought the entrees out while we were still eating our appetizer and had to push away our plates to make room. The server commented, “not quite ready” and chuckled. We felt rushed, didn’t love the food and were sincerely disappointed. With so many wonderful options, we were certainly disappointed and would not go back again anytime soon.

This was my second time to Parc and I had enjoyed it previously. I brought my wife there for her birthday on a Sunday night and we had a pretty terrible experience. The service was ok, until my wife was brought out her Filet which she had ordered Medium. The steak was Medium Well on its way to Well, so my wife sent it back which she never does. 30 minutes later the waiter returned with a new steak and asked her to cut into the middle of it to check it. Upon doing so it was clear that this steak was equally over cooked. It was very disappointing and for $41 for the steak, it should have been cooked correctly. We wound up leaving without my wife having an entrée. The manager came over and basically said we are sorry the steak wasn't to your liking, implying it was our fault for not liking the steak. Overall not a fun night having my wife leave in tears because she was being made to feel like it was her fault.

Enjoyed our meal except for the overdone trout. The veal loin was to die for! We would definitely return. Our only problem was we didn't let them know we had theater tickets so we were unable to enjoy an after dinner drink or cup of coffee and dessert. It was nice to not be rushed.

Service continues to be exceptional. The food, however, has declined since Parc first opened. Specifically, the couscous accompanying the salmon... it used to be amazing and is now a bland, watery mush. Boo.

atmosphere was very nice. Waitress was very good. The appetizer tuna tasted like tuna fish from can. Mussels broth was amazing,but didn't like the extremely large mussels. The Waygu steak was served lukewarm and the root veggies were dry and bland. Big disappointment. It's hard to mess up Waygu beef...... Sorry I really wanted to love this place

Meal was excellent. My only concern is that we arrived at 7pm for our 7pm reservation and were not seated until 7:45. While i expect to wait awhile 45 minutes is unreasonable. Need to extend amount of time given to complete meal. The hostesses are correct - cannot make people get up. There were alot of people waiting just standing around

I have enjoyed Parc for lunch and brunch even though service has consistently been slow. Certainly not a lunch spot if you’re on a schedule. I recently went for dinner, and although the menu is interesting, our food arrived cold and felt our waiter was rushing us to leave. I think it’s overrated and feel they need to try harder in order to maintain their good reputation, especially with all the new competition in area.

Food was good, we had the steak and the prawns. All cooked perfectly. I am pregnant and they even offered to cook my half of the steak extra since I cannot eat medium rare. The only downside was a little miscommunication at the end. My husband said to box up the half of the steak we had left and they ended up throwing it out and boxing our mashed potatoes....there goes 50 bucks

The severe was fair. Two dishes on the table chipped. Most of all I lets talk about the food. I think the chef put way to much salt on the food. This is the first flavor I tasted. Also ordered a half bottle of champagne which they did not have. No valet service. This restaurant has great atmosphere but they need to work on the food. Having have travelled to some of the most culinary areas of the world. This restaurants food is over rated. The restaurant is suited for appetizers and drinks and atmosphere.

Went for Sunday brunch and extremely satisfied. The location is perfect. The service was good. The credit card machine was broken, but the staff apologized often and made it work. We chose the buffet option and the food was plentiful. The yogurt was a tad warm and only had a chance at one mini burger, but the rest was delicious. The bacon especially!! Mimosas were perfect and my wife loved the mango versus orange option.
We’ll be back.

Strange experience.
Our reservation was right at opening time.
Upon checking in at the desk, the hostess couldn’t find our reservation. When eventually found it, it said cancelled. She seated us anyway.
Upon seating we were told that “so you received a call letting you know we only are taking cash today because our credit card system is down”. I had received no phone call.
When our meal was done, I was about $10 short in cash, so I suggested a check. The server went to confirm, and came back and said no. I asked for the manager who quickly agreed to accept a check, so it worked out.
When we left I checked my email, and found an email from open table that arrived about the same time we arrived that said “the restaurant has cancelled your reservation”

Very confusing

But the food was very good.
