    The chef was able to accommodate my vegan diet by holding back the cheese on the pear salad and wild mushroom flatbread. My husband enjoyed his soup of the day and slider appetizers. The service was excellent, and the water glasses were always filled promptly.

    The menu is nicely varied and the food is consistently good. Service is usually a little off. They seem to mean well, but never quite return in a timely manner w/ salt, sugar, whatever or there will be a long delay with the food etc.....I dine here about every other week (their menu appeals to a large number of my clients) and it's always a safe, but not exceptional option.

    I always enjoy the food and this time we got a lot of sides and small plates. I did get a main course of sea bass which was fabulous.Our guests were impressed and all agreed we would return because of the food. Perhaps they were low on staff because we had to hunt down and ask for everything we needed. like water, iced tea, and bread which was promised and didn't come until we reminded them. When the food finally came we forgot about the service and marveled over everything.

    First, this is really a bar, not a restaurant, which means if there are a bunch of rowdy people on a Friday night, it is going to be loud, as it was when we were there. So, if you are looking for a relaxing evening to unwind in a quiet place, this is not a good option.Overall, the food was only okay and not quite what we expecetd based on reviews. The duck nachos were mostly chips and sour cream and not much duck (very disappointing), but the tuna salad and cobb salad were fine. Service was pleasant. We will probably not be going back as this is not the sort of restaurant we prefer.

    Made advance reservations Seated promptly Half of the restaurant was full which means they are not busy that day which is no excuse for good service! Silverware missing for a few guests, reminded the waiters many times. They passed us each time and wouldn't get them. Food arrived and needed to remind them on silverware. Drinks refills were very late Check was late They didn't care much about service. Noticed other tables were also not getting a good service that day

    The restaurant itself may have been nice, but we wouldn't know... We were seated in a hotel conference room across the hallway. The food was marginal, and quite expensive, but the service was very good. It would have been more enjoyable had we not felt like an afterthought in a drab alcove... Next time we'll go elsewhere. :/

    We have been to this place on 5 or 6 occasions. The last visit was disappointing. Turkey burger was dry, herbed French frys came without herbs and the creme burlee had a gooey top instead of the hard torches sugar. This was just my meal. The beef shot ribs my mother in law had were dry. Disappointing to spend $200 for sub par food. We were told the chef was off for the night to watch the Super Bowl, so I guess that means our food was prepared by a line cook. The shift manager told me that she actually torched my (redone) burlee ( uneven crust, not well done). Although the waiter was very nice and attentive, it was hard to get the waitstaffs attention as there was a lot of time fussing with the televisions in the bar area. Skip it.

    It started well with a warm greeting and reasonably prompt service. However, service went down hill from there. After I had completed my main course and my dishes had been taken away, I was ignored. Others around me had been given dessert menus soon after they had finished their main courses. No one ever brought me a desert menu. Finally, as I was at risk of being late for performance near by I had to flag down a server and ask for my check which I paid and quickly left, just barely getting to the performance on time.

    We were having a private get together for the release of our magazine, so I took my group to 'Park Place' in the Cypress Hotel in Cupertino. You have to try the French Toast - they are to die for! Brunch was perfect. A group came in but did not disrupt the calm ambience of the restaurant. During their busy hours, I highly recommend making reservations!

    I wasn't even acknowledged for the entire hour I spent at the establishment. My water glass was never filled once. Unfortunately, I enjoyed the food and ambiance quite a bit and I will not be returning any time soon. The manager handled the situation well. She also assured that this was not typical behavior; the particular associate was often complimented on exemplary service. I hate to pull the socioeconomic stereotype card, but that's the only logical explanation I can draw from the horrible experience. In sum, pretty good eats for the first and last time I will ever have it.

    Appetizers and drinks were very good. Service was mixed: took a long time for waiter to notice our water needed refilling, but otherwise good. Wife had the mussel appetizer as a main course and loved it. Friend had the mushroom Wellington; ditto. My flat iron steak was fine, but nothing special. Same for my buddy who pronounced the famous burger "bland." Highly recommend the short-rib fries. Calamari also very good. Duck confit nachos good but also a little bland. Bartender is excellent. Vibe on a Sunday night was strange. No one to greet or seat us. More like walking into a bar than a restaurant. Wine list offensively overpriced: $42 for the Fogerty Skyline ($14 retail). I might return, but would go for drinks and appetizers, not dinner.

    Park Place is one of my favorite lunch places. The food is unique enough, and not limited to single style. The Mac and Cheese is always wonderful, especially with some wild mushrooms and goat cheese. The flatbreads are perfect. Located in the Cypress Hotel, sometimes it is overlooked as a restaurant worthy of a visit, but indeed it is. The outside patio is wonderful for lunch or happy hour. And the staff is top notch!

    Open Table lists Park Place as California cuisine, implying a menu with fresh, healthy choices. This is simply not the case. Open Table should reclassify Park Place accordingly. They offer upscale bar and comfort food that lacks creativity, aside from the build your own mac-n-cheese. The menu lacks healthy options. I wanted the seared tuna salad as my entrée, but I got it before the appetizer. The salad was good, not great. Cold fingerling potatoes were interesting, but added nothing to the dish. The smoked chicken wings were overcooked, the sweet potato fries bland and unseasoned. Service while friendly was average to below average. Overall, it was a disappointing experience. Should have stayed in and had leftovers...

    Park Place was smaller than I expected. We (husband, wife, teen son) enjoyed ourselves. We were there at 6, too early to know what it would be like later, and on a Wed. night. The driveway/parking is rather confusing. You need to turn into the hotel parking, before you're really sure that is where you want to be for Park Place. The staff was wonderful, all of them. Kind, professional and helpful. The food was even more delicious than I expected. The complimentary bread basket with garlic butter was delicious! Though would be even better warmed... We ordered the duck nachos, (yummy!) the short rib fries (I don't know how the fries stayed so crisp - amazing & my favorite) the beet salad (tasty!) flatbread (very good). Desserts delicious

    To start the evening, Park Place didn't have record of our reservation, something that has never happened to me using open table. We were sat at a table in the bar area. We did not get very good service and waited a while to have our orders taken and to receive our food and drinks. The food was fine. Won't be returning to this restaurant.

    I've been here multiple times for happy hour and everything was great. This time I decided to go there for dinner with a bunch of friends. Unfortunately, my experience was sub-par. First, they messed up the order (which is ok - happens every now and then). However, they took a very long time to prepare another burger... by the time it came, my friends were all done with the appetizers AND their main dishes. Now the kicker... the chef forgot to season the burger and it was completely bland. When I told the waitress about the food, she acted like there's nothing she could do...
