A word from Park East - Hazlet
Park East is the ultimate expression of what a high-end casual restaurant should be. The owners represent a convergence of different styles and experiences ranging from fine dining to elite night life environments. The Park East concept can best be described as trans-generational: an expression of the evolution of cuisines, vibe dining, service and ambiance, not to mention the highest ranked sushi in the area. Park East creates the highest quality dining environment in what is one of the greatest indoor spaces in New Jersey. "Park East is not a restaurant, it"s an experience..."Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "You walk past an extremely loud bar, just to get into the restaurant. Second, we walk past ANOTHER bar smack dab in the middle of the dining room; what's up with that? And loud - SO LOUD, we couldn't hear ourselves talk. Well, to be honest, this is a BAR. No hiding it. A BAR, where they TRY to give you creative food. OK so the chef is imaginative. And I guess if you are at a table with the guys, this place would be a home run. HUGE TVs EVERYWHERE you look. No dinner music. JUST LOUD NOISE from the BAR! How can this possibly be a family eatery or a date night? Yes, this was a memorable meal, but not because of the food or service. We could not WAIT to leave (as we both had migraines from all of the noise!)"

  • "This was out first time, and it was Restaurant Week. The dinner was great, and we would go back ONLY during Restaurant Week. The regular menu is very expensive. For example, some of the entrees were around $30 , where we had appetizer, main dish, and dessert for same amount. The food was delicious, and service was excellent. However, food was too expensive for such a casual restaurant on a normal night. It's a bar, not a "fancy restaurant" .They advertise as a business casual dress, yet it is very casual when you get in there. There is outdoor dining, there's a bar with young people dancing, and a very casual feel to it."

  • "My family of five enjoyed our meal here very much on Saturday night. However, the dining room is extremely loud and I would not go back until they make some changes to the acoustics. What a shame for such a nice restaurant with a great menu."

  • "I'm a Park East junkie. I was leaving the house and the six teens watching TV asked where I was going. I said, "Park East". I was immediately asked, "Can we come?" This place has never let me down. I always order the Tuna Pizza and sushi. If you haven't been here yet, go, you will love it."

  • "We visited Park East Sunday evening around 5:30, good bar crowd - we sat in the dining room. I have been to Park East a number of times in the past, and it is a great place to watch the game, have some drinks and appetizers. They also have excellent sushi. The one knock I have is,they seem to be changing the menu often, and there is no continuity to it."

  • "This last time at the Park East has done it for me and my family. We will not go back there AGAIN! I have had issues with poor service and terrible management, but the food was always good until the last time. The food was sub-par, the salmon was super dry and my lava cake was fully cooked with no lava center. The heat was not working right and everyone at my party and all the seats around us has to wear our winter jackets to eat. The server was sweet, but the management could care less that everyone was so cold, my children's fingers were frozen. We made reservations2 weeks in advance, showed up on time and they didn't have a place ready for us, they made us stand in front of the dining area for 5 minutes while the manager looked annoyed"

  • "Decided to go out for Christmas Eve dinner at 5:30pm. Seems like the menu was very different from the last time we dined. Filet was good and perfectly cooked to order, sea bass was very oily, chicken was dry and rice tasteless. Gave me the wrong bar drink, when I mentioned it I was told initially it was correct, I had to show the waiter the menu. Might have been an off night due to the holiday. Don't plan on going back."

  • "We dined at Park East for Thankshiving Dinner. Our party of 5 included 1 senior and there was something on the buffet to suit everyone. The food quality was above your typical buffet, served hot and nicely presented. The staff went out of their way to accomodate us and created a festive holiday atmosphere for all."

  • "Punk rock shrimp app was really good. The sushi was fresh. Only issue was the music was way too loud for a restaurant."

  • "We have been going to the Park since it opened but the past few dining experiences were horrific. The new menu is rather limited and quality is inconsistent. The service was horrible. There were only 2 tables dining and more servers than clients, yet our server disappeared for 20 minutes at a time. The "football" crowd over ran the dining room and that clearly drove dining customers away, especially if you had children. I did see a manager hiding in the hall but he never made his way to the dining room for comments. It's a shame that the owners have let this place slip because it used to be a great place to dine."

  • "The service is very poor. We did make a reservation and seated at our set time. However, we waited 20 minutes for a server to come over to our table after. Then another 30 minutes for appitizers with no site of our waitor. My boyfriend decided to go to the bar himself for another drink because he knew it would faster. As he was paying for his drink a manager approached him to say can you please move. I have two people that want to sit and pay for drinks. How rude?! If you want to wait a long time with poor service to have amazing food then this is the place for you."

  • "Weave been to Park East multiple time and usually the only pleasent thing is the food. This time we had the best waitress. She was kind and funny! She was quick and seemed to care. The only bad part was my dessert was over cooked so she got me a new one and that one wasn't good either. The chefs need to watch the timing. Overall it was the first time I have been there where I will go back just because or waitress was amazing!! They need her train everyone else because normal I am very mad because of the service and wait time."
