A word from Park Tavern
With an exciting mix of vintage fixtures, comfortable furnishings, and handsome textures, Park Tavern is an elegant spin on a North Beach neighborhood classic. Owner Anna Weinberg and designer Kendra Nicholas of Park Interiors collaborated to divide the room into unique, dedicated spaces -- the handsome marble bar, the terra cotta floored cafe with windows that open onto the patio facing Washington Park, the comfortable dining room with tufted leather banquettes, and an open kitchen with a chef’s counter.

Park Tavern will showcase Chef Partner Jennifer Puccio's talents with delicious American bistro classics and emphasize seafood from a wood burning oven. From raw to fried, expect boldly flavored dishes that you'll want to eat several times a week.

Serving up classic cocktails with the candor and character of an old friend, you won't find any overly fancy mixology here. But when it comes to wines, you find something for everyone!

Diner Reviews
  • "Our family (4 generations, from 4 months to 93 years old) gathered for a special dinner and we had a wonderful evening! Our server was incredibly attentive, providing a spoon for the baby to teethe on, checking to be sure our food was as ordered and expected and made us feel that our enjoyment was important to her. The food was just as wonderful. We enjoyed our cocktails and then shared lots of delicious starters including soft shelled crab, brussels sprout leaves, deviled eggs and a watermelon/cucumber salad. Entrees were stellar including Portuguese fish stew, steak & fries, scallops. burger and pork chop. Dessert is a must - loved the cherry crumble and bread pudding. We will return."

  • "I was dsiappointed in the food. While it wasn't bad, it wasn't great. Our server was attentive when it was time to order, etc., but when we tried to get her attention several times for bread she just wasn't panning the room to see if her patrons might need something. We had two Birthdays and she was kind enough to bring out candles, but she brought an additional slice of cake that we did not order and she did include it on the tab. Two candles in the other cake would have been enough or the restaurant could spring for one slice. I did not pick the wine, but my friend chose one and he said the prices ranges were high. For the total we paid, I did not feel it was that great of a dining experience."

  • "Very disappointed with Park Tavern visit August 8 for dinner. The menu was very limited. I wanted to try the lamb, but it was served with sausage. I asked if they could give me just lamb because fatty meats like sausage do not agree with me. They told me they could NOT and that I would have to pay the rate for both, even if they only served me lamb! I was really surprised at their response to my dietary needs and no suggested substitutions. The menu was really limited and no choices for kids, not even pasta. I had the pork chop instead and it was bland. The restaurant was so noisy you could barely hear each other. It was not a pleasant dining experience and I would not go back."

  • "Celebrating a birthday & had a great time. Food is outstanding, loved the lemon chips with barrata, and 2 orders of the brussel sprout chips, yum. We basically enjoyed the appetizer portion of the menu, next time we will work on he entrees : )"

  • "My boyfriend and I love going here on nights that we want to have amazing food and fantastic atmosphere. It's one of the larger restaurants in SF that feels like it's still cozy and classy and, despite being in the middle of touristy North Beach, is actually filled with lots of locals. The modern menu never disappoints, and with a view of the kitchen you get to see the amazing chefs and cooks doing their magic."

  • "I came here for dinner on my anniversary with some friends so I didn't want to complain when I got my food. I ordered the "Bar Steak" which is supposed to be an 8oz. NY Strip steak. Instead I got two tiny cuts of meat that had been massively overcooked. You really can't call two 4oz steaks an 8oz steak! it is NOT the same thing. And this was no NY Strip. Not sure what it was but it had no flavor at all. Honestly, if I were a chef I would quit my job before I served that to a customer. And at that price? ($34). It was embarrassing."

  • "The food was excellent! Still salivating thinking about my crispy polenta cakes - YUMM!! The noise level is somewhat loud but that was perfect for my group. Some did complain about the small portion sizes but I thought it was perfect. A great overall experience. Will definitely be coming back."

  • "This was my fourth time at Park Tavern, and my first real disappointment. I had the chicken (their signature dish), and it was ruined by being badly over-salted. Service was also rather inattentive. (Cocktail, appetizer, and salad all arrived at virtually the same time.) Deviled egg appetizer, as usual, was excellent, as was the salad."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Great location for me, since its walking distance. Lunch is only served on Friday, & this was my first time trying it. My choice sounded better than it was, but my friend's fried chicken sandwich was delicious. I would give it another try!"

  • "Appetizers were impressive. We ordered a few appetizers and split 1 entree. The truffle fries with the egg & caviar were interesting and delicious. The presentation was done well with the egg still in its shell. I was impressed. The lamb tongue had great texture, the mustard flavor complimented it well, however it was a bit too salty for me. The brussels sprout chips are delicious and cooked just right. Demons on horseback (prawns wrapped in bacon) are superb! The Wagyu beef jerky was nice to munch on the side, a little dry but not bad. The grass fed ribeye was cooked well but it was not a great cut of meat. It was rather bland and chewy. The chimichurri sauce was very flavorful and powerful, almost to cover up the bland tasting meat."

  • "I came here for brunch this weekend and really enjoyed our meal. I had a reservation so we were seated right away. The atmosphere is great and spacious - so many spots in the city are quite small and crowded. This place was nicely decorated and the service was good. I got the baked eggs. It's basically a couple of eggs baked on top a huge bed of spinach (a little too much for my taste) but the dish was still tasty. The other three people in our party all got burgers and seemed to enjoy them, although one didn't like the horseradish topping on his. But overall, good brunch spot and was happy we didn't have to wait hours for a meal."

  • "My wife and I went here on the recommendation of two friends, which means that while we didn't entirely love our experience, others have thoroughly. Ambiance was lovely, and the staff was courteous. It wasn't too busy (Thursday night), which made the (almost too much) time it took to get little things like our wine, bread, and cheese appetizer seem a bit extensive. The cheese sampler was fantastic. The bar steak was fantastic. The brussels sprouts were fine. My wife wasn't very impressed with her roasted beets and other vegetable dish she ordered, while she did enjoy her corn soup."

  • "I brought an out-of-towner because I had been wanting to go since it opened. It met all my expectations. The brussel sprout crisps were delicious. The squash blossom salad was excellent. And the scallops were to die for. We loved having a before dinner cocktail at the bar and the ambiance of the whole place. I'll look forward to going back."

  • "Four of my good friends and I had dinner at Park Tavern on Saturday, July 19th. We had a very nice table in the middle of the dining room (kitchen & bar view). The service was quite good and attentive. The food was exceptional (we all agreed). However, the noise level was off the charts. Not only was the noise from the patrons deafening, but Park Tavern added to the decibel levels by playing very loud music. My four friends and I really could not carry on a conversation before, during or after dinner. Unfortunately, the noise level alone could mean that I (we) won't be returning to Park Tavern. In your ratings options for "Noise Level" (above), I find it interesting that you would options for "quiet", "moderate", or "energetic"."

  • "had dinner with a group of 6, great ambiance, nothing is rushed, beautiful peeks of nob hill out the window as half of us faced the window/washington area park. not so vegetarian friendly (pescatarian OK) but most of our group is meat lovers and loved it – Great time, great food!"

  • "Our reservation was honored by immediate seating at a perfect group round table.(One of 2) Prompt service from Susan our server. The meal was well paced, not rushed. The pork chop remains a winner. The Marlow burger...... umm. Scallops perfectly done. W4e paid the $20 corkage for some of our cellar wines they decanted for us. It was my sister's birthday. A cake surprise, cheese cake icing, perfect. We always go for gelati on the outside in North Beach."

  • "How often do you go to a restaurant and find every element about your evening to be absolutely perfect? Park Tavern fits that bill. Our server, Jeff, was exceptional. Everything out of the kitchen was superb-- the deviled eggs, salad, their signature "poulet vert", the generous pours of wine by the glass (I ordered the house red with my meal-- it paired beautifully with the chicken) and the indulgent "July birthday cake", complete with a candle. Hostess was friendly and helpful when we called to say heavy traffic was making us run late, valet staff real pros at their job. It was worth the drive from San Rafael for such a lovely evening."

  • "We've been to Park Tavern twice. First we went for brunch which was yummy & overall a good experience. The food was a tad salty, but we thought it would be nice to try dinner. Unfortunately, the food we had for dinner at our next visit was even saltier, even my husband commented on the salt level, and he regularly adds salt, sauce or spices to his meals. the portions were small -- as in my 5 year old finished his 'adult' portion of lamb and was still hungry. My scallop dinner consisted of 4 scallops-- each one the size of a quarter. Each entree we had was in the $30 range, quite expensive. I wish the food was as good as the ambiance & waitstaff so we could go back!"

  • "Walked in and the hostess took us straight to our table. Promptly asked for drink order, which I love! We ordered avocado toast to start and received it right away. Then Crispy Polenta which I cannot recommend enough!! One of the best brunch menu items I've had in a long time. Had to try the deviled eggs too, which were good, but didn't quite live up to the hype. I'd still recommend trying them though. Definitely worth it for brunch. Can't wait to try the dinner menu."

  • "The Park Tavern is a great North Beach discovery. The food & service were impecable. My husband had the lamb, which he raved about, my salmon was perfectly prepared, and our aunt had the sea scallops with special requests for no sauce and limited butter. The staff happily accommodated her with the changes. The food was beautifully presented. If there is one drawback, it is the popularity the of location and the resulting noise. It was really LOUD. but if you can deal with that, all other aspects were really terrific. Hey, it's not their fault that they're so popular! Just not a good place to go if you want to have a quiet conversation."

  • "First visit to Park Tavern did not disappoint. Wine list was imaginative, found a Loire Cab Franc, priced well and delicious. Entrees were solidly 4 stars but the lemon chip and burrata appetizer was amazing. Incredibly imaginative blend of flavors. Service was stand out outstanding. Waiter was very helpful and attentive and water glasses never were more than half empty. Be ready for a fairly loud but energetic ambiance. Dining room was full of people enjoying themselves!"

  • "Had a great time catching up with a friend, and it was a good thing we had so much talking to do! Otherwise, we would have been annoyed at how long it took our server to get to us for a drink, and then also for food. We were probably sitting for 25 minutes before anyone took our drink order, then another 25 minutes for food. That said, love a restaurant that is still lively on a Monday night, and the food is top-notch. Scallops and sides were amazing!"

  • "The lasting impressions was not only the food! Our waitress upon us ordering without hesitation noticed none of the items we selected had meat and so she just confirmed if we were okay with the bacon on the deviled eggs. She is obviously well versed on the menu and understanding of customers food presences and/ or allergies."
