    There are many choices in the city for dining and our experience at this restaurant was poor. We tried this place due to decent reviews but we will choose not to go back. The food was adequately prepared, service was mediocre at best.

    We went to dinner for our anniversary. The staff was warm and friendly. They sent a complimentary dessert with a candle in honor of the occasion. The food was delicious. Mushroom gnocci was heavenly. We had a wonderful time.

    All 5 of the people in my party thought the food was well done. The service was friendly, competent, and casual, giving it a homey feel. The only thing that will probably keep some of us from returning is that the menu is limited to items which were not so much to our tastes, which is a shame, because we did like the place. Not that there is anything wrong with the menu--it's just a matter of personal preference for types of food.

    Simple clean decor with delicious all American cooking. Chenery Park Restaurant is a local treasure. Go on Tuesdays for family night if you want to bring the kids. Or go on Sunday night for quite atmosphere and delicious food. Catch some Jazz at Bird and Beckett on Chenery street a few door up the street. They have live jazz Sunday and Friday nights from 4:30 to 7:30.

    Glen Park village is fortunate to have this little gem in our midst. Nice place to run into friends and neighbors, a short but interesting menu, a weekly kids' night, and holiday themes, decor and costumes that are fresh, fun & original!

    Chenery Park is never disappointing. The menu does not vary tremendously, but the choices provide a little of everything and the meal delivered is always good. They also have a great bar with many creative drinks and nice wines.

    My wife and I took our nine month old baby with us to Chenery Park. Zagats had written that it was good for children and yet satisfying for adults who enjoy fine food. To keep it simple: I agree on both accounts. The staff was solicitous and friendly. The food delicious. While there might have been a little more butter in the various foods we ordered, this is normal in a restaurant that is dedicated to taste and offering a variety of hearty dishes. My wife had gnocchi and the gumbo. I had fish and chips and a fantastic summer salad that was very fresh. We'd go back.

    I was pretty disappointed in the food this trip - I'd heard from others that quality was slipping and I'm sorry to say I agree. It's always been a reliably good place to eat but this trip was really off. I'll give them another chance and hope it was just a bad night.

    While the menu is smaller than most restaurants, the dishes presented are outstanding. We've been there several times, and the staff and kitchen never disappoint, which is why we picked Chenery Park for a celebration dinner with my out-of-town parents.

    There was nothing outstanding about this venue. Our waitress was excellent, but the food and atmosphere was mediocre. This was a birthday dinner and no mention was made of the occasion and our table was awful. Very disappointing experience. I would not go out of my way to eat here again as there are too many restaurants close by with a better menu.

    Went here for a special dinner. The menu is limited but has good variety. Had the special double dipped fried chicken. It was ok. The clam chowder soup was a stand out. Came with clams in the shell. Nice touch and it wasn't too fishy. There were a lot of kids there when we arrived but since our reservation was at 8pm, they were not there long but were well behaved anyway.

    I have been to Chenery Park 4 times and am still very pleased with it. The taste & preparation of the food is excellent, however, I noticed that the portions seem to be smaller and the males in our group were still hungry, even after dessert. The wait staff are friendly and helpful.

    I was looking forward to dining at Chenery Park. I had a most wonderful experience from when a staff member opened the door to greet us in to the wonderful meal and service. The only thing we were not happy with was the chocolate dessert at the end. It was dry and tasted burnt. Otherwise everything was great.

    I always enjoy Chenery Park and will go again - good food and service. However, on this evening there was a fairly strong smell of disinfectant in the front (we were seated at a window table). I hope whatever required that can be taken care of well ahead of dining hours, or switch cleaners! But overall CP is a long-standing favorite.

    Just what every San Francisco neighborhood needs--a reasonable, reliable and friendly "Go-to" restaurant. There are adventures in the menu selections, and also familiar dishes with "punch." It wasn't crowded in the early hour of our dinner, but I imagine that it can become so as the evening progresses. The server was a pro--available, informed, and attentive. Cauliflower flan--who would have thought? We'll be back....

    I love CP. You could easily come here with a date or with your parents or on your own and you'd feel like you made an appropriate choice. Food is unadventurous, but not boring and everything is good. There's a full bar, and the drinks are excellent and reasonably priced. It is cozy but not crowded or noisy, & service is friendly and competent.

    Food is always fantastic & tonight was no exception. They make a great salmon dish. Service was a little weak. This is the second time we've had this waiter, just not crazy about his service. When you've just sat down, asking for a drink order is little too fast. Most servers at restaurant are great.

    As always, we had a wonderful meal at our neighborhood gem, Chenery Park. What sets this place apart from any other restaurant in San Francisco is that the wait staff here never makes you feel like they're doing you a favor. Even the nicest restaurants in SF have wait staff with an attitude, but Chenery Park does not. The management is doing something right - every server seems genuinely happy to be working there. It's a joy to eat at Chenery Park and the food is outstanding.

    Chenery Park is always wonderful. We ate well, were well served, and pigged out on bread pudding and creme brulee for dessert. A treat always to go there! It was a crowded Wednesday evening (who knew!) and yet all went as it was meant to go.
