Diner Reviews
  • "Great restaurant but we did find hair in our pasta but the hostess remembered we were celebrating our birthdays and we did receive dessert on the house as an apology."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "A San Francisco treasure in a epic decline. The place is kept at meat locker temperatures, pasta and other menu items on the floor, smells like uncleaned restaurant floor mats, the wait staff is blank and the food is ho-hum. Your fellow diners have the look on their faces, of passengers on a plane that is going down."

  • "I used to love this place, however, this time the food was so bad, we were shocked. Don't get the pizza. Don't even go here. I'm not going to go here ever again. That's how bad it was."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "From arrival to departure very poor. First they said I had no reservation, I had to pull up my confirmation email to prove it. Then the food, never tasted a bland pulled pork before and my friends had the cheeseburger and the chicken sandwich neither was thrilled. I will not be back and would not recommend to anyone. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "I really only come here to bring my dogs. The food is so so. I got the crab sandwich and it was ok but the chips were overcooked. Not a great presentation either. I do like the location and when the weather is good (which of course is rare) it is great. I was lucky it was a perfect day! "

  • "Friends & I dislike Beach Chalet a lot - except for their view. Menu is very unhealthy & is hard to be seated as always packed. Park Chalet is a completely different experience. "
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Overrated by some. The chopped salad was delicious.....way over priced, though. Ambiance? It's an indoor patio with a picnic area out back. its probably very loud when full of party goers. Service however, was pleasant. if the prices were better and I was in my twenties, I would probably hang out here on a Friday night & a sunny weekend. we were there at 5:45 on a Monday night. Hence, the quiet rating. the next open reservation time was 7 o'clock. "
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "Both the Park and Beach Chalet have continued to have excellent food. They're bombarded with tourists, but have also done a great job of improving their wait staff to manage the throngs of people coming through their doors every day. We were well accommodated as a group of 5 adults and 1 wee child. Our food came out hot, delicious, and well-prepared and service was good."

  • "I go here for special occasions when having visitors to the city. Since I have hearing issues I need to remember not to go when there's a game on, since the noise level is extreme and conversation a challenge. That said, I always enjoy a meal at the Park Chalet for brunch or lunch, but prefer the upstairs dining for dinner, just for the view of the ocean at sunset. Servers are attentive and efficient. I absolutely love the veggie burger, made on site. It's the best in town! And there are so many great beers to choose from, it difficult to decide."

  • "We drank and ate while the kids hung out. What more could you ask for when having lunch with old friends!"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "WARM and Delight filled.Bloody Mary just enough spices with multiple garnishes. This time I tried the rotini with sauce. Well balanced , warm and abundant serving. "

  • "I met a friend at the Beach Chalet for brunch. They do a bottomless champagne buffet brunch for less than $30 per person. It was great. The food was fantastic and my champagne glass was never empty. I would recommend this for a group or just a few people. With the set price you can’t really go wrong. Especially on a beautiful day!"

  • "We always like the Park Chalet for casual brunch or lunch when guests are in town and we've gone hiking at Land's End. The bonus is that our two small dogs can join us as well if we sit outdoors."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "The brunch was really good. Our server was great and the dining area had lots of windows and tables available inside and outside. The food was good and offered variety and options."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Basically poor all around. Bfast buffet just gross esp the biscuits and Gravy, French toast casserole and way undercooked bacon. The peel n eat shrimp were good. Bad omelette from omelet station- thin, dry, brown. Carving station of beef was shoe leather."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "I really want to like this place because I like the location and it is kid friendly. We've tried it two times. The doors open onto the park and it has a really nice ambiance. However, the food is terrible and the beer and mixed drinks are just mediocre. There isn't one thing that I would recommend from the menu and we've tried almost everything. I'm not looking for gourmet but they can do much more than what they offer today."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The food was good, but limited menu as compared to upstairs at Beach Chalet. Outdoor tables were a hit with those who had children and dogs. Kids could run around in the lawn area, while dogs can walk about or sit by the outdoor tables. So it is good on a nice day. However, inside it is very noisy and was hard to hear the people at my table. So, I will go to the Beach Chalet instead, and watch the beautiful sunsets over the ocean."

  • "We ate at Park Chalet and the meal was excellent, particularly the NY steak. It tasted like beef with nice clean finish as though it came from my uncle's farm. So many steaks taste like greasy mush and this one tasted like beef with a nice beer and sides it was a wonderful meat. The other dishes were nice as was the ambiance."

  • "We went for New Years Day as a brunch was advertised. We arrived 15 min early and were told we were early And and could choose a table but no one was available to wait on us. We were eventually waited on And served. No one came back to the table to check on us, refill our water or coffee. I had To find the salt and pepper and go to the hostess to retrieve my check. The place was not that busy, food was so-so, very limited and expensive menu. And I was not Checked in by the hostess and received an email asking why I was a no show. I guess because no one noticed us!"
    Dined on 1/1/2014
  • "Reviews show this as great but it is not a spot for nighttime dining. Went with the kids and husband and it was cold despite the fireplace. Also tons of empty tables. Food (good calamari) and service were fine but other than that, I figure it is meant for afternoon or late morning brunch on a sunny day."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The Park Chalet has always had a great, dynamic menu. Their staff has continued to be helpful and friendly. And the bar has some fantastic brews! But dining inside may be problematic. The noise level can be intense. The sliding glass windows and doors that form the walls of the chalet reflect the sound and do little to damp it. On warm days the restaurant might keep some doors open by the bar, or better yet, you can dine outside on the lawn. It's a great place for an outdoor meal."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "I enjoy the overall atmosphere of Park Chalet for lunch. It's always bright because of the natural light streaming in from windows and ceiling. But the same windows/glass that bring the natural light also cause all sound to bounce and therefore, it's very loud in the room. I would recommend getting there soon after they open for an early lunch, tends not to be crowded then and so the noise level won't be as uncomfortable. The food is always good and unique menu."

  • "It was Thanksgiving dinner, we had reservations, just in case, but were not necessary. It was buffet style, which is ok, but the food was not warm enough. However, it still had a good taste to it. It seems like it could be a great place to go have lunch and enjoy the scenery. The service was spectacular, though the place was almost empty. Very friendly staff, which was highly appreciated since it was Thanksgiving, after all. Overall, I would like to return and try in a regular day."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "We very much enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner in this friendly, informal atmosphere. Both families and singles all seemed to enjoy this indoor-outdoor setting, with flatscreen sports and a bar for those who wanted it and lots of trees and greenery looking out the two ceiling-to-floor glass walls. The buffet was very good - of special note were the: ham--juicy and tender; whipped sweet potatoes and dressing, both with intriguing flavors, neither over nor under-spiced; the pumpkin pie--again, well spiced with a flavorful crust. Also, must note that I've never seen a wait staff that seemed so genuinely happy to be working that day, each and every one! Thank you!"

  • "The Sunday brunch is a treat. Generous with the sparkling wine and lots of choices at the buffet table."
    Dined on 11/10/2013
  • "Food is average. Cajun Fish Slider was not spicy. The Funghi Pizza did not have much fungi or garlic. Worst of all, the workers are going through the motions. The floor of the restaurant is dark grey and there was a white candy wrapper on the floor 10 feet away from the bar. Not one employee picked up the wrapper although at least three employees noticed the wrapper as they stepped on or kicked it. Waiter, bus boy, and hostess....all noticed but ignored the wrapper as if another employee was going to pick it up. None did. Shameful ! For the Manager....this was on Saturday night (11/2) around 6:45 to 7:30 pm. Yes, the wrapper was on the floor the entire time we were there. Hard to miss on a dark floor with no tables in the way."

  • "It sounded so good on the reviews and the website but we were very disappointed. My husband had their fish and chips. The fish was FROZEN FISH. Oh please. He sent it back because it was very mushy. How could a restaurant next to the beach serve frozen fish?"

  • "What a great find! I've been in San Francisco a little under a year since relocating, and this was one of the fun places to come to. Park Chalet, not to be mistaken for the Beach Chalet (upstairs), serve drinks and food outside on the grassy lawn as well. We had a late lunch there, and I had the great buffalo wings, but the menu looks like they have a variety of burgers. They brew their own beer, and I tried at least 3 before my belly couldn't take it anymore, but I'll be back for sure to try what ever is in season. Lastly, the ambiance was -- for a lack of a better way of saying it -- off the hook! There was a live band there playing on the lawn when we were there, which made it that more fun... Thanks Park Chalet for a great afternoon!"

    Dined on 9/16/2013
  • "Granted, we went on a gorgeous Saturday evening so the place was very crowded. We had reservations at 6pm, were on time, but were not seated for at least 10 - 15 minutes. We finally chose to eat outside because nothing was obviously opening up on the inside. We finally received our food at 7pm. An hour waiting for food was where the place gets demerits. The food, once it arrived, was fantastic. Not sure I want to wait an hour for it however, but the fish & chips IS probably the best I've had in the city."
    Dined on 9/15/2013
  • "For a place with such a unique location, and the resulting "automatic" clientele, I think they've become somewhat complacent in the quality of their food. This was my first time, so perhaps I just got unlucky, but I would say the food was generally lackluster. We tried two types of their sliders, which were centrally featured on the menu, hoping for something special. Both orders were delivered to the table fairly quickly, but where not very hot, and one order was borderline cold. Even so, the sliders were tasty enough, but would have been much more enjoyable if they were simply heated properly. We also had the garlic fries... these arrived warm enough (not piping "hot", but nowhere near cold) but very oily."

  • "Terrible food and service. I had been a regular customer over many years, but the menu was reduced to a joke. Items we ordered came without the ingredients listed. I will not return."

  • "We arrived early and expected to wait until our reservation time. We were seated immediately and had excellent service throughout our meal... our delicious meal! The sliders, caesar salad, lamb sandwich, and chocolate chip cookie dessert were fantastic (there were four of us, not just me). Good wine list and great local beers. Fun and really good live band (not too loud). The Park Chalet was a great spot for a beautiful San Francisco Saturday with friends and their little one (there were lots of toddlers for her to run around with, and the setup is great for watching them to make sure they don't stray too far)."

  • "I wouldn't say the food from the buffet was all that outstanding. I prefer the a la carte menu but thought i'd give this a try. There wasn't a huge assortment but it was alright. The problem was that the serving dishes were so small that food would disappear quickly and not be replenished fast enough. They should be replacing things before it runs out..Quicker turnover of food! Also, the fact that every time i requested something, I'd have to ask at least three times was pretty frustrating. Seriously - Juice, a cup, water, the bill....it took forever to get anything and there were PLENTY of servers. I was glad the table was ready for us as soon as we arrived, but that should be expected if I've made a reservation, right? c'mon."
