We had a high time by the High Line
Fun cocktails (though somewhat pricey for the size), interesting menu, with dishes well executed, very nice garden, airey but shady areas. We went early, before a play, and our service was friendly and on the ball. The place is huge, especially the indoors, so I can see how customers might get lost at a busy time.

Go-to Chelsea spot
The Park is one of my top go-to spots in Chelsea. It's easy, casual and the perfect place to bring out-of-towners after a stroll along the Highline. The food is always good and the atmosphere is energetic but not overwhelming.

What a gem.
We went to celebrate a birthday and had a fabulous time. From the moment we walked in the door we felt special. Everything about the place gets and A+.

Love the pancakes
I went to The Park for brunch and I absolutely loved the ricotta pancakes with the orange marmalade. So delicious!
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
the host & hostess were wonderful! the people we wer e meeting were from out of town-we d originally planned to sit in the garden but it was an excrucitaingly hot day/ on their own the host & hostess had booked us a table in the side right corner next to the garden so our visitors could have the view /
the service was attentive/ but we wished the waiter would have explained a bit more about the french toast- ie that it would come with the syrup on it -not on the side;the person who ordered it could not eat much of it it was so sweet/
also that the ' hash browns were prepared in your own' unique way'/ they were tasty but frankly did not look appealing at all /
/still we enjoyed our time & would go back again/

It was dinner for two and even though the weather outside was frightful, inside the Park was absolutely delightful! We had the lamb sausage pizza and Cesar salad. Both were incredibly good and came in portions that where just right. The bar menu was a little odd but it was also very good, try the Southern Belle. The best part was inside, what a great atmosphere and the decor is perfect. Also, half the restaurant sits in an incolsed/outdoor area...sounds strange but it's really cool. One of my new favorite places, you won't be disappointing.

Food is good, Ambiance is great
Food is good, Ambiance is great, although service remains among the worst in the city.

love all over again
I haven't been to The Park in quite a few years. However coming back after all these years reminded me as to why it's one of my favorite restaurants in the city. The atmosphere and the decor is always a draw. I opted for a table inside due to the 99 degree temps when I arrived at 7pm reservation. My companion was in awe of the restaurant; her first visit. We didn't have enough time to really sit and enjoy a full dinner. Kept talking, laughing and enjoying each others company. But managed to share a few appetizers and wine and split my plate of salmon that was exquisite. We're both looking forward to another visit.

Fun for Six in a Booth
Hm, my title sounds a bit erotic... hahaha... i mean 'fun' in the way that all six of us got to sit comfortably in the main room with excellent views of the restaurant, garden, and street beyond--after a walk along the high line. The booth setup helped facilitate great conversations even as the noise level rose at this prime Saturday night time slot, and we enjoyed people watching. The food overall was good, but being a foodie I'm open to a level of experimentation that this venue did not offer--however, that did not take away from the overall experience. My friend's steak salad was great, my gnocchi fresh, and the passion fruit crepe for dessert was a first for me. Will have to try the garden on a day sans heat wave. Thumbs up.

Cute and cozy
I have been here plenty of times prior to the latest visit for various reasons- birthday dinners or just nights out for drinks and dancing. This night I came with 3 friends looking for a nice place to dine and enjoy a girls night- no "special" occasion. The vibe on this Saturday night was not as pumping as it typically used to be; maybe because it's the middle of summer in NYC where people are usually away on the weekends. Besides that, the drinks were excellent and the food was good; however, our table for four in the garden room was not big enough for all our plates. The two bars were pretty quiet even by midnight. Overall, it was a relaxing evening in a beautiful scene!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
the Park is a very nice restaurant. We ate in the outdoor garden and had plenty of room away from other diners. The food and service were very good. I will definitely go back.

Great ambiance, patience required
You got to the Park for the great ambiance, and a relaxing time with friends, family, or someone special. The food is reasonably priced, and overall good. It's a fairly simple menu, with some dishes which more interesting. Service of course is fair, but this is not a five star restaurant. The wait staff was friendly and provided the basics, which I appreciate when enjoying my company. I recommend this place for price point, atmosphere, and a relaxing, unhurried meal.

Great summer ambience
We came because their garden room is such a nice place on summer evenings, a refreshing green ambience for a city dweller. The food was very good; they have a great selection with well rounded meals. I was also really happy with our wait staff. They were attentive when we needed them to be but left us alone to enjoy our meals with each other.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for brunch!
Food is delicious and a good variety- plus the indoor patio garden is just lovely! One of my go-to spots in the area

Pleasant Garden-like Atmosphere
The Park is appropriately named, both because it's near the High Line and because it features an interior and a garden dining area with lots of large plants and an open, outdoorsy feel. My wife and I had an early, light dinner so we didn't give the menu a full test, nor did we experience the restaurant at a time of day when it would presumably be busier. The pizza I had was good, as was my wife's salad. I would give it another try if in the neighborhood but probably wouldn't go too far out of my way. It would be interesting to see what the vibe is like later in the evening or at night.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
They host wasn't very welcoming when we walked in. He said hello asked for my name and then took a phone call without even asking us to wait one second. We stood there for about 5 mind without him even acknowledging us until another hostess came over and took us to our table. Everything else after that was really enjoyable we sat in the garden and had a wonderful evening
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful brunch - pulled
Wonderful brunch - pulled pork with poached eggs and sweet potato hash! I'll definitely be back!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent and patient service.
Excellent and patient service. We were lunching with an old friend and ended up spending four hours over lunch. The serving persons were patient and courteous and never tried to "shut us down". It was like having a long pleasant lunch in Paris, where we live. Great service!
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner and brunch
We came here for brunch on a Saturday and dinner on a Friday and both we're great experiences! Everything on the menu is AMAZING! The garden seating is awesome and I definitely recommend it.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent experience as usual
The Park provides satisfying food in a casual, but attractive atmosphere. The choice of various small plates as starters or side dishes allows the diner to try a variety of simple, tasty dishes. My wife always loves the oysters. I like the salmon and steak and the salads are very good. It is a great place for families and groups and for sharing various dishes. The young waitstaff are pleasant, although not always as attentive as one might like, if one has a limited time and is trying to get to a performance or other engagement. Dining in the main room with the high ceiling or in the enclosed garden among the trees is an enjoyable, relaxed experience. Late at night the bar scene becomes very active with lots of young people.

Sparkly lights and excellent food
An indoor-outdoor restaurant with a dynamic bar in the meat packing district of New York City and overlooked by the Highline Walkway. The ambience was very good with great lighting. Service was very good and our Aussie-born waiter was very chatty and attentive. The food was great and very well presented and in just the right amounts. Of all 5 restaurants we dined in on our long weekend trip to New York this was my favourite.

Brunch as if in a garden
Great setting, with real trees in the courtyard.
Very good service.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Came in before a visit to the High Line and was very impressed with the food and the service. Fun brunch menu and the indoor/outdoor setting was charming.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you are looking a relaxed and casual place, but nice and not so expensive, The Park is great.

Secret Garden for Diners
It was the trees and vines that piqued my interest in the first place, and I'm glad that I decided to try it for Saturday brunch. Atmosphere is great and the food was very good, and quite a bit larger portions than I expected. The location is great if you like the Hi Line. Only complaint was the service, which was good but not great. The server took the drink orders for my boyfriend and myself while he was away from the table; then she was gone for a while, and returned to card us and re-take the order without telling me that's what she had been doing. Overall, really wonderful experience and would definitely go back.

Great Brunch Under A Canopy
What a cool place! Went for a delicious brunch. Menu had a great balance of sweet and savory choices for a reasonable NYC price. The atmosphere was amazing! I thought of so many other occasions than brunch that I would be able to come and enjoy dining under in the Park (literally). 1 block away from Chelsea Market, the food, atmosphere and location made for a lovely Saturday.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely for lunch & business mtg
Had been here before for dinner with a large group and LOVED the food. This time went back for a business lunch that needed to last a few hours. We shared the snap peas salad, steak sandwich, and mezze for appteizer. It was all delicious and light, so it didn't make us sleepy for our meeting - ha, ha! The service was great as well. This restaurant is an all-around great spot for a business lunch or intimate dinner in the evening. Plus, the "park" decor is beautiful!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
great for a light bite
the atmosphere was lovely and it is great for non serious food. The wait staff was pleasant. I would come here again for a casual dinner with friends, however not for a romantic or serious cuisine.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect night out
Great place, perfect indoor and outdoor feel. Huge seating area to accommodate large groups. Good ambiance for dinner followed by party in the club. All in one!

Pleasantries at The Park
This was the perfect place to bring family for brunch this morning! The biggest let-down wasn't The Park's fault--the Brunch menu that is listed on OpenTable is not up-to-date. As a vegan, the menu provided on OT makes it seem like there is a good assortment of veg options, but upon sitting down at our table it was a bummer to see that I actually could only have their fresh fruit bowl or one of the salads. That snafu aside, the service was great (a little slow at times, but that was understandable once you saw the size of the restaurant), and the decor was so pretty and refreshing--trees indoors! Very kid-friendly, and though we arrived on the early side, it started to fill up around 1p.m.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The ambiance is absolutely unique and holds true to its name. Sat at the bar first then got a table quickly. Our sever jasmine was wonderful, energetic, and attentive. I'd go back in a heart beat just to sit in her section. The food was good and tasty, the drinks were a little weak and over priced, but the service made up for it. Impress your date and bring them to PArk.

Park like setting
An indoor park setting with real trees looking out on the Highline.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'm usually too lazy to walk "all the way" over to 10th ave, but I'm glad I did! My partner and I went for a late brunch on Sunday and although they'd run out of his first choice, he really enjoyed the waitress' recommendation. Food was great, the place is cute if a bit noisy, and the prices are NYC cheap. I'm sorry it's not on the UWS, but we'll definitely be back!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing Space, Amazing Service
Knowledgable, accommodating, attentive staff. Fabulous food. Great ambiance.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Walked the highline and heard about this place, and oh what a place. Left feeling very satisfied and that we had a true New York experienced.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Neighborhood brunch spot
Great option for west side brunch. Wasn't crowded, good food, friendly staff. Very convenient to highline too.

I haven't been to The Park
I haven't been to The Park in a few years. It is still as stylish as ever, and the food was better than I recall. It was also quite reasonable, our food was very good and the price was fair. I am glad to be reacquainted with The Park!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
My time at the park was a
My time at the park was a memorable one. The food was delicious, the drinks were strong, the prices were awesome. The ambiance, the people, the staff, everything was good. My girlfriend and I enjoyed it very much. Only 1 thing - at times our waiter took quite a while to take our order, and then again when it came time to pay for the food. But it wasn't an unbearable wait, as we were having a great time. Everything else was great so I still give The Park 5 stars. Thanks for a great night, and I definitely will be returning!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, Great Place
It's like sitting in a park outside. There are trees and beautiful strands of lights. The food is incredible. The service was wonderful. I can't wait to go back.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was looking for a place to take my girl out to dinner and this place was amazing for just that! Definitely recommend it to others. Pricing , food, and scene was just superb.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good Excellent staff
Dog friendly in the garden area. Alex was waitress, she was excellent. Food excellent, drinks very good mimosas.

Worth the journey
I love this place. It goes from a very cheery, vibrant lunch / brunch spot to a very "hip" evening venue. I am probably too old to be "hip" that often but the Sunday brucn was excellent. The food is good, the staff very attentive and friendly, and I was very impressed by one of the management team making an effort to go round and talk to diners. The decoration of the place is fantastic. The collection of "petrified" wooden tables and chairs look great and the in-door al fresco dining (go there, you will know what I mean!) works really well. Then afterwards, you can go and walk it all off on the High Line. Perfect!
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
My first time at the Park could be described in one word - Fantastic! Great service and good food (not amazing but good). I would go again.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect for Sunday Brunch
Mango Mimosas are great. I recommend huevos rancheros for breakfast
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Prettiest spot in town
The Park lives up to its name, delivering a beautiful outdoor park strung with fairy lights (well heated in winter) with birds nests above you in the trees making you feel in restaurant wonderland. Its spacious yet intimate. You aren't sitting on top of everyone else, and you can linger with your drinks. The staff are always super pleasant, so nice that you forgive instantly if something is forgotten-I wanted a sauce on the side once and that didn't happen, instantly remedied..once the food was quite late but we all got a complimentary champagne, that sort of thing. Prices are very reasonable, food might not be fit for the most discerning foodies of this city, but I love their selection and always eat well. The french fries are divine!!
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Beautiful space with great food.
We very much enjoyed our experience at Park. They have a beautiful, fully enclosed outdoor space with greenery and lights that accent the industrial old building wonderfully. Our server was calm and had a great attitude.

Great food and service. Atmosphere
Great food and service. Atmosphere can't be beat. Glad I found this gem!
12/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
two restaurants in one
Good to note that there are two different restaurants at BLT, one fancier up stairs and one easy going downstairs with music and a more energetic ambiance plus lower prices.
Good basic food downstairs, great service, cosy environment.
Upstairs looks more formal, and very nice.
