Everything was truly amazing. I read reviews and decided to take a chance. We were impressed with everything. The food was amazing. The chef recommended the trout dish and I loved it. Others had bacon wrapped meatloaf and lamb chops. Everyone enjoyed it all. The fried green tomatoes as an appetizer are not to be missed. There is a lot of southern charm in this little place and downtown Duluth.

Great service, very good food
Eaten here 4-5x, consisently good service and food. Menu varies which is good. I had a great pasta meal this time. Decent selection of wine, by bottle and glass. No mixed drinks. Service consistency is one of the big draws.

Exceeded my expectations!!!
Based on reviews I had read, I expected it to be good, but it was even better than I had imagined. The ambience was immediately quaint, and inviting. We were presented the wine list, and were offered to try a sample before ordering. We had trouble deciding among the starters and ended up ordering 3 (the pork belly, fried green tomatoes, and baked goat cheese) to share among 3 people. They were all delicious and we decided we must come back a different time to order all the others we wanted to try. I had the duck confit pasta and the others in my party had the chef's special which was Shrimp over parpadelle pasta in a lemon sauce, and the risotto du Jour, topped with Petit Filet. While the Duck was my favorite, all were extraordinary.

Special Occasion Favorite
My husband and I love Park Cafe for all occasions and especially our anniversary. The food, service and attention to detail keep us coming back time after time.

Loved Park Cafe! great location
Wonderful location right on the green with a view of the fountain. The patio was lovely. Food was fantastic! Really large portions. We enjoyed our evening and our waiter was wonderful. Definitely would go back.

Amazing food, service & experience
Park Cafe is one of the best restaurants my husband and I have tried in a long time! We were visiting the Atlanta area from Chicago and invited some friends to try Park Cafe with us; our friends were just as amazed at the incredible food as we were. We will be going back on our next visit. Everything was delicious! I highly recommend the fried green tomatoes and the pork belly and the risotto. I can’t say enough great things about the food and the experience we had there. Can't wait to go back.

The food was fantastic - especially the trio dip starter. The fried green tomatoes are also wonderful, and we've never been disappointed by any of our entree choices!

Lovely evening out
Park Café is great place for dinner. The food is excellent and always different and unique. The wine is good and priced moderately. Our server was attentive but not overly fussy. Sit outside on the deck for dinner and maybe there will be music on the towne green..

Enjoyable dining experience
We have been several times to Park Cafe and each time has been an enjoyable experience.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was the first "Date Night" my wife and I had in quite a while. We had a 7:30 reservation. The rain caused a bit of a rocky start with getting seated and we ended up with a 15 minute wait. However, once seated, the wait staff was friendly, attentive and accommodating. The food was of high quality and well presented. Overall, the experience was very good. We look forward to having the opportunity to go back in better weather and enjoy the park views along with our meal.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I just love this place. The food is always fresh and exciting - not your every day run of the mill stuff. The service s great too!
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great discovery !!
Really pleased we tried this place during Gwinnett restaurant week I think we've found a new favourite !! The staff are very friendly instantly a nice welcome as you walk in, we had some nice wine & a chat with the owner as we waited for our table. Inside is full of charm & character - real character not the pseudo kind seen in the ubiquitous chain restaurants !! The food is excellent cannot fault any part of the meal we had I just wish I could have finished the yummy chocolate panna cotta sooo good !! Highly recommend this as a nice special date night spot there's a lovely outdoor patio that I think we'll try next time. What you waiting for pick up the phone & book that table now !! :)
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is fantastic!!!!!! This is my favorite restaurant in the Atlanta area. They always bring freshly backed, warm bread which I love. This is not your typical bread that you get at a restaurant. This is homemade, warm, slightly sweet and melts in your mouth. My husband and I have tried several dishes and they are all amazing. My husband has three favorites, the grilled mini T-bones or as I call them lamb chops, the meatloaf, and the shepherd's pie. I love the roast chicken, and the duck confit pasta.. Everything on the menu is great so you can't go wrong. I highly recommend this restaurant. I have eaten at a lot of restaurants all over the country and this is one of the best!!!!!.

The Best Patio in Gwinnett county
This is my by far my favorite restaurant, they have the best patio overlooking town green, great for lunch and dinner.
The food is always amazing and service is great
I've been there multiple times and always left with a great experience.

Food was excellent! But it
Food was excellent! But it was very warm, the AC either wasn't turned down low enough for a packed restaurant or it wasn't working. On a warm summer night it was quite stuffy in there. Perfect place for a small group of 4 or a dinner for 2

The food are very well prepared and delicious. They are a bit expansive but worth it.

Park Cafe was a very pleasant surprise! My wife, daughter and I celebrated a birthday here and had an outstanding meal. Every dish was prepared perfectly, the flavors and balance of each dish was spot on and the service was terrific. Our server was great, he even over heard me saying happy birthday to my wife and next thing I know he's bringing a birthday discount card for a return visit, nice. My wife and I are foodies and cook a lot at home, experimenting and exploring new foods and flavors and I can honestly say that Park Cafe's staff know what they are doing, well done!
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always the food is phenomenal. Great setting and delicious desserts. I have never been disappointed with a meal, specials or straight off the menu. Fried green tomatoes will keep you coming back.

As a vegetarian, I appreciated
As a vegetarian, I appreciated the chef's willingness to create options for me that weren't on the menu. Still, a vegetarian menu-option would be nice. Love the food and atmosphere, and the chocolate tart with sea salt was amazing.

It was our 30th wedding anniversary. I only picked this restaurant because it was right around the corner from a concert we were attending. Everyone was very nice about offering their congratulations and they did give us glass of complementary champagne. The service was very slow and they brought me the wrong appetizer(I ordered crab soup and they brought me crab cakes). My wife had the fried green tomatoes and said they were the best ever. Overall, it was a nice experience and the food was very good.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first visit, upon the recommendation of a friend. Park Cafe really lived up to the recommendation. Friendly, knowledgeable, personable service. Excellent food; great wine list. Even had a couple of good options for my steak & potatoes hubby! Enjoyed the ambiance as well. We'll go back, for a special date or similar event.

I had eaten at the Park Cafe
I had eaten at the Park Cafe on business but it was the first time my wife had been there We had a quiet, wet, Thursday evening dinner at Park Cafe. I like the quaintness of the restaurant. There are numerous areas to sit. We actually chose the enclosed sunroom that has transparent tarps hung to keep the rain out. It would be a lovely place to eat in on a sunny evening. The wine our waiter recommended was very good and our food choices were well presented and very flavorful. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience despite the weather.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place. Its hard to find a good spot in the burbs thats not in a strip mall. Atmosphere is outstanding. An old house on the town green, creaky floors...perfect. We kept it local for our anniversary, dinner and a short walk to the theater for a play, and the crew at Park Cafe helped make the night special. Complimentary champagne for the occassion, and enthusiastic service from Jackie. I enjoyed the fried green tomatoes (kicked up a big notch) and their interpretation of Shrimp and Grits. Prices were very reasonable for the service, setting, and quality. The evening was capped with really fine desserts and a pot of French press coffee.

A hidden treasure in Gwinnett
So many chain restaurants and "more of the same" in Gwinnett. But this is a hidden treasure with outstanding menu selections at reasonable prices; 5-star service and a lovely atmosphere. 5 minutes from I-85. So glad I found the Park Café!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place! Of the 4 times I've been, haven't had a bad experience, food is always delightful and service is excellent.

Big bucks but awesome everything
I celebrated my anniversary wife my wife and the staff was awesome!!
Tiffany was awesome, I called ahead to arrange my flowers setup before we arrive, Ti have her act like she didn't know me and a bunch other little subtle things and Tiffany with the rest of the staff handled everything like pros.
I would recommend this place for a great and unique dining experience and one to sure please your mate :)
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the duck confit - it was good enough to make Julia Child envious. Everything on the menu was just amazing!

Park Cafe/Heather's birthday
We chose Park Café to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We had the special for the night, filet mignon, and it was excellent! Service was very good and the manager came by and asked how our food was. This was not our first visit and we have NEVER had anything that wasn't prepared perfectly.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a lovely lunch with a friend at Park Cafe in Duluth. The combo of the day consisted of Tomato Bisque soup, Stuffed ravioli and tossed greens. It was delicious. My friend had a fried green tomato and pimento cheese sandwich which she enjoyed. Our server was friendly and professional. I would highly recommend this resturant to friends.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Little neighborhood place
The chef is amazing as we have never had a bad meal. The she crab bisque and fried green tomatoes are awesome, the entrees are always yummy and outside the box. And Jacqueline is an excellent server - which makes for a great evening out. Thank you Park Cafe!

This was our first time dining
This was our first time dining at Park Cafe, and we were enchanted. The building has character and a feel good atmosphere. The food was delicious, attractively plated, and the portions generous. If they are serving the Potato Soup, we highly recommend it. It is outstanding. Also, the Bread Pudding Bananas Foster is a winner. The service is very friendly and very helpful, and made the dining experience very enjoyable.

I had lunch with a girlfriend here. It is a nice location in what looks like a little house in downtown Duluth and parking was really easy. If you sit outside you do hear the trains go by but it is not awful. I had a lovely glass of wine which our server recommended and she also recommended the fried, green tomatoes which were really tasty and different. I had the soup, sandwich and soup combination for the 10 dollars. It was great deal and plenty of food. The soup was a great smooth bisque that was delicious and then the sandwich was meat loaf served on a flat bread but more like a soft cracker. The caesar salad dressing was on the sweeter side but nice. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely go back soon.

We held a bridesmaids' luncheon/"non-bachelorette" party on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, and this was the perfect location. The service was excellent, the menu perfect for such an event, and the food delicious.

Best of Duluth
hands down- the best resturant in Duluth. Good atmosphere, great food, friendly and prompt service.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had only been to Park Cafe for lunch. This was our first dinner experience and we were very pleased. If you go early enough they do have heaters on the porch which is very quiet and intimate. After 8PM it is a bit too nippy for my taste and I am very warm blooded by nature. We enjoyed our dinner immensely and will definitely return. The trio dips are a good appetizer to share with another couple and all are made with cheese (i.e. tres fattening), fyi. My husband had the duck with pasta which was delicious and I had the pork loin with b-b-q sauce which was also very good. An acceptable portion size for the money.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
We celebrate our anniversary. We like it very much. The service was very good and water was very helpful with his advice of food and wine. Keep doing great job. Thank's a lot. Moysey and Anna.

We have been to Park Cafe a few times now. To be completely frank, it has always been impeccable. From Wine to Courses to Service, they are a great choice for occasions small and large.

Just a nice change from the norm. A great place with great food in a cute section of town,....what more could you want.

The Little White House
It was a cool evening but the warmth of this cute little house took off the chill. Greeted at the door & was offered beverages while we waited for our table (we were early). We were seated quickly in a small, intimate room with about 3 other tables. The only thing that was annoying was that the floor sagged every time someone walked behind my chair! A got a ride throughout the evening! The house salad was huge and the dressing delightfully light & tasty. We had trout, lamb chops & pork tenderloin. Each of us commented on how delicious the entrée was. Being on a diet, we avoided any drinks or dessert, but left full and satisfied. Our waiter was very helpful & friendly, however, was not always around when we needed him. Enjoyable time

Gemstone Park Cafe
We arrived a few minutes late, but we were not chastised for doing so. Everyone was so welcoming. Even though I chose a red wine, our waiter still brought me two glasses to taste test. The food was well proportioned, and oh so palatable. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Duck Confit Pasta was outstanding. The best Duck I've ever had.
