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!

    The cooking in this restaurant is uneven. My starter- roasted cauliflower- was not warm at all, showing a lack of attention. Also, it was suateed in butter and this was not reflected on the menu. Main course was disappointing- vegetables were very lack lustre. Desserts were also pretty unexciting. I wouldn't be interested in returning here.

    This is our 2nd time at this restaurant. The first time about 6 months ago was good. This time not so good. The waitress had an attitude even though it was an early evening meal so she could not be tired. I had the scallops which were good . My wife had the ribeye steak for $38.00. It was like shoe leather. It was full of grizzle and my wife spit about half of it out as un-edible. Actually a shoe would have been tastier and cheaper. We complained to the waitress and she said it was full of grizzle because it was grass fed beef. What kind of grass????, AstroTurf !!!? The manager should find a new beef supplier and waitress who could come up with abetter excuse!

    I love this place. This is my third time here, but first for brunch. I had come for dinner, and could just eat off the appetizer list (which is amazing)! The fried lemons and brussel sprout chips are to die for. But, I didn't know they only served brunch until 2:30 which is a different menu. I adapted and ordered the avocado toast. I'm not into the "toast craze" but this was on another level. The seasoning made it. I also ordered the Marlowe burger, which is by far the best burger I've had out. Amazing! Plus, the wine list is great and the service was awesome. And its not pricey at all. Very reasonable for an SF top 100! I will go back every time I am in the city!

    If you are looking for something other than Italian in N. Beach try Park Tavern. Consistently good and also the bar and communal table are great for a cocktail and a snack. Pretty creative menu and a good selection of meat and fish dishes. Service (this time) was below par and it wasn't that crowded so not sure what the issue was. Did see the other servers roaming around our table a lot more often than our server don't think it is indicative of the entire staff. Go here 3-4 times a year and always have a good meal and a good time.

    We arrived late for our reservation, and were seated with the caveat that we would have to be done by 8 pm. Not a problem. Food was fantastic, appetizers splended, wine perfect. The only drawback was my seat kept getting hit by passers by and Wait Staff.

    From the initial look of the place it all looks like it's going to be a good experience. All the details quickly fall apart. The servers are going through the motions without actually paying attention to what the diners needs are. Tables being automatically cleared when meals are not finished. "Baby Lettuce Salads" made from Jumbo giant lettuce leaves that were simply torn up into "baby Lettuce leaf sizes? Overcooked fish. Desserts that were burnt on the top and raw on the inside, made with pears that were not ripe to begin with. I have dined at Park Tavern at least six times since they opened and have watched everything deteriorate into a bustling mess of pretension.

    Front of house needs some polishing--rude, young hostesses who seem to favor young single "bros" without reservations vs. customers who had reservations and were ignored. Also wait staff was cold, distant and seemed bothered to service. What is with this place? Food was great, although cocktails need some tightening up.

    I have been trying to go to Park Tavern for a while now so I'm sorry to say that we were disappointed. The place was very loud and the service was poor, even on a Tuesday. It took 30min to get our drinks and wine, only after asking twice. It wasn't until several other tables departed that our order was taken. The food was hit or miss. The deviled eggs and beef jerky were delicious. The lemon chips were interesting but overpowered the taste of the burrata. The entrees were nothing to rave about. My husband was very disappointed in his steak (bland, chewy and undercooked), the burger was mediocre, scallops ok; however, the chicken looked great and apparently tasted great! I can check it off my list but we won't be back.

    I made a reservation which was confirmed by Open Table, but when we arrived there was a sign on the door saying closed for the day and sorry for the inconvenience. Very frustrating. Needs to be better communication between restaurant and Open Table. Could not submit this unless I answered all questions. As for #2, I answered as to what my friend who recommended it to me would have said. Since it was closed, I could not rate it from personal experience.

    Despite the pretty atmosphere and excellent service, the music was too loud to converse without raising our voices. The energetic atmosphere would make it a good spot for bachelorette parties. Brussels sprout chips and twice baked potato were very good, but everything else we got was quite over-seasoned.

    The room is beautiful and the service staff was warm and friendly. The host staff seemed a bit cool but got the job done. Our server was knowledgeable and made our dinner a great experience. The deviled egg was wonderful. The Chicken was fantastic, Pork was fantastic, but the Bar Steak was dry and tough. The squash blossom was wonderful too. Desserts were fresh and delightful. We enjoyed it all and will be back.

    Excellent food, service and ambiance. The only reservation about Park Tavern is the noise level; very difficult to have a conversation. The opulent (chicken) was awesome! Also great were the Brussels sprout chips and the cucumber and melon salad. That being said, everything was worth making a trip to Nrth Beach.

    I read that the burger here is one of SF's best and it did not disappoint! Excellent bun--strong enough to hold the pattie, bacon and fixins. Wonderful flavor, salty, rich. Also had the fries with aioli and egg and caviar. Perfectly fried and salted. Deviled eggs were also surprisingly delicious with Bacon and a jalapeño. Also ended the evening with strawberry shortcake. Perfect ending. Wait staff were patient and accommodating and helpful!

    I'll keep it short. I heard this place was supposed to be amazing. The wine our waiter picked for us was fantastic.The truffle fries as well. Everything else was bland (corn/clam fritters), too salty (scallops, fries, snapper) or actually just bad (the mussels in the seafood stew had gone bad). For the price, it was disappointing, and I was a little bit embarrassed having brought my uncle who is kind of particular and kind of a foodie. With so many choices in the Bay Area, I'd be hesitant to go back unless I'm someday blessed with the resources to drop several hundred dollars on dinner on a weekly basis.

    Have been here a hand-ful of times. The food is quite good. The restaurant is large and very loud. A lot of tourists and walk-ins, so not really a neighborhood home. It was so hot inside the night we went—very uncomfortable. The poor servers were already wilted and harassed even through the place had just opened. i cannot imagine what the kitchen staff was going through. Something really needs to be done about the lack of air inside.
