- Josh conquers another countrySaybrookGrantDined on 11/18/2014How does he do it? This week he was Persian. He's also been Mexican, Southern and on and on. So reliably excellent it's amazing.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very Friendly and ChicOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 11/11/2014I hosted an impromptu management meeting here - it was a little bit more upscale than I anticipated - but in a good way. From the outside it looks like a cute neighborhood cafe - inside is fresh, forward thinking, modern Californian cuisine. The waitstaff couldn't have been more accommodating. I'll definitely return, maybe with a for a "real" date and not a business date!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- $20 steak dinner. Really?SaybrookGrantDined on 11/4/2014Really. Excellent. Great soup and dessert included and their fries are the best (sorry McDonald's, frozen isn't the same).Special Features:
- The Park Restaurant. . .CarlislesDadDined on 10/28/2014Always a pleasure . Accommodating, friendly, knowledgeable staff; menu items that I always find enjoyable; good wines (which are served as wines should be); and, for me, a location close to home.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always outstandingSaybrookGrantDined on 10/21/2014Great food, good service and a friendly room of people. The best deal in LA.Special Features:
- It's tough to chooseSaybrookGrantDined on 10/14/2014Not only is the menu interesting, the Tuesday specials are so good it's tough to favor soup over salad or meat over vegetarian entree. The up side is, whatever you do, you've made a good choice.Special Features:
- The Park hits the Mark7692FVIPDined on 10/7/2014I've written a lot of reviews for the Park, so it is tough to come up with new things to say, suddenly I realize how grateful I am to be able to say that. I just wrote a review of a restaurant where the quality is faltering. The Park is consistent - consistently good, consistently raising the bar with creative new dishes, yet keeping enough of the favorites that you can be sure they'll be serving something you crave - even if you didn't know you were craving it. And the service? Consistently pleasant, attentive and satisfying. Ahhh, The Park!Special Features:
- Such a gem!JulienDined on 9/30/2014The food here is always delicious and experimental. The menu changes all the times and the chef is always trying something exciting and new. Very delicious!Special Features:
- You don't have to be JewishSaybrookGrantDined on 9/30/2014In honor of the Jewish holidays the special was matzo ball soup. Amazing broth and matzo balls with some nice carrots. The brisket was like buttah but with more flavor. Delicious apple fritter. Frankly, they had me at "brisket."Special Features:
- It's tough to choose.SaybrookGrantDined on 9/23/2014When the special is a choice of soup or salad (incredible gazpacho or amazing iceberg wedge) plus a choice of the best fried chicken or mac and cheese with a corn pudding stuffed tomato -- it's frustrating to make a choice, but the reward is you can't go wrong. The banana cream pie was the only dessert offering and it was delicious, so that was easy. Don't get me started on the regular menu. Everything on that is also noteworthy, so go back if you have a hard time choosing.Special Features:
- Can't go wrong.SaybrookGrantDined on 9/2/2014Whether it's brisket, southern cooking, Tuscan fries, spag & balls or anything on the menu or chalkboard, order it. Consistent quality and amazing variety.Special Features:
- Good eats!kariotakiDined on 8/25/2014My friend and I really enjoyed our food at the Park. If you don't already know that Echo Park is an "iffy" area, you'll find out if you come here or visit the neighborhood. Parking is also very difficult. I hope this place makes it because the the food and service were really great!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Consistently surprisingSaybrookGrantDined on 8/19/2014Some restaurants are great at a few things, but The Park seems to do everything well. Southern fried chicken, fish tacos, lamb kabobs, BBQ, Jidori chicken, brisket -- they're all amazing. All of those things aren't on the menu every day, but that's a reason to go back.Special Features:
- Perfect eats before Dodger stadiumOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/10/2014We selected this place before teh Paul McCartney cancert and it was spot on! Nice dinner for a nice price - GREAT service and we literally could have walked to Dodger stadium. Only problem....parking was quite a hike up the hill.Special Features:
- Lunch Pork Belly Banh MiNessajVIPDined on 8/8/2014Came in for lunch the other day. I hear the Chef is working on a new lunch menu, and I am glad as I feel the sandwiches need some updating (at least for my taste). I had the Banh Mi, which came with Pork Belly, some carrots, an aioli/mayo of sorts, cilantro, all on a baguette. The mistake I made was not reading the whole description of the sandwich, which indicated it had Pork Belly. I enjoy pork, but I do not enjoy the layers and layers of fat pork belly has with very little meat. This was not The Park's fault, and I should have been more sharp. When trying to find a sandwich though, I feel the lunch is limited in creativity and doesn't represent The Park like how their dinners do. Service was top notch, and I do intend to return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A Gem!OpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 8/3/2014The Park is that neighborhood gem that you are always looking for. They keep the menu interesting and I've loved everything I've had there. Service is always friendly and the atmosphere is great! I've been going since they first opened and it just keeps getting better!Special Features:
- Good foodPickyeaterDined on 8/2/2014I like the restaurant. No waiting. Accepts reservation. The only thing about it , there is no parking and I have to park in the nearby residential area and a walk up hill to get my car !!!Special Features:
- The following 135 reviews are from the The Park Restaurant reviews archive.
- Good, but not great.pickyaboutrestaurantsDined on 7/27/2014Given some of the reviews, I was a little disappointed. Everyone's food was good, but I was expecting more. The restaurant is small, so making reservations was a good idea, especially for our group of eight. But the floor is tile and the sound really reverberates, so I had a terrible time hearing anything at the table (which is generally not an issue for me). We probably won't be going back unless we need a place to eat down the street from Dodger Stadium. But I wouldn't make a special trip.Special Features:
- New FindTeriBVIPDined on 7/19/2014I was looking for something interesting with a food rating on Zagat of 24 or higher, where we could go on to the Greek Theater from there without a huge effort (15-minute drive), and found The Park Restaurant. I'm stunned that I didn't know about this restaurant with the many Dodger games we attend! We had a delicious dinner, found the menu to have many options that are not run-of-the-mill, and the server was just lovely. They accommodated our request for a bit larger table after we told them we weren't going to staying for more than just a quick bite. Highly recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Did it againMimiVIPDined on 7/15/2014This restaurant blows my mind. The food is amazing. Buttermilk fried chicken was the best ever. Savory strawberry rhubarb tart was delicious and surprising. And the general atmosphere is like a party. Every table having fun. And as one of our party said, "Everyone here seems like I would want to be friends with them". Bravo Chef Josh. The Park is a gem. Shhhh.Special Features:
- What a gem!!ScallywagkweenDined on 7/8/2014I really enjoyed this restaurant. We went here prior to going to the Pantages. It's not far and they got us taken care of in time even though we arrived late. The Tuesday Prix Fixe special is such a great deal for such a nice plate with soup or salad and dessert to boot. For only $20 is fantastic. The waiter/pseudo-owner Rob is so attentive and full of information and suggestions to help narrow down your wine and food selections. He does such a great job!! We had the chicken piccata and the mushroom risotto. Both were very good. The wines made the meal. Ancient Peaks '11 was the best.Special Features:
- Great new specialSaybrookGrantDined on 7/1/2014We've had The Park's brisket and the pot roast is just as amazing. The food isn't at all weird, but a bit unexpected in a great way. Chef Josh pays so much attention to every aspect of the meal and every dish is memorble.Special Features:
- Another chanceYummyDined on 6/30/2014We got the sushi, which was a disappointment. Service was slow. I will try it again though as several friends have recommended it.
- winedamselVIPDined on 6/27/2014Friday night supper is a great deal: 3 courses for $25. I had the chile relleno, polenta and butterscotch pudding, all were fabulous! The Sechuan calamari was not crispy and was too chewy, but it had good flavor. Parking is a problem.Special Features:
- Very Tasty!Foodie135Dined on 6/22/2014Wonderful little place to go to. Food is phenomenal and the service was great. Definitely recommend it for couples or small groups.Special Features:
- Monday Night SushiNessajVIPDined on 6/16/2014Came in to dine for their Monday Night Sushi Special. They have a selection of sushi rolls for $5 and vegetarian ones for $4. The sushi was very delicious, with quantity and presentation basically identical to how you would find it at a typical sushi restaurant...except you aren't paying $12 a roll. You won't find any 'out of the ordinary' rolls, just the basics that most people know and love, such as Rainbow Rolls, Spider Rolls, Spicy Tuna, etc. All of the non-veg ones are fantastic. For example, the Rainbow Roll came complete with 8-10 pieces and with all the same fixings you see at sushi restaurants. I can't comment on the vegetarian ones since I didn't try any. FYI, selection is limited to about 5-6 non-veg rolls, and 4 veg rolls.Special Features:
- Spectacular Specials7692FVIPDined on 6/14/2014My wife, she likes soft-shell crab, they kinda creep me out. Solution? When The Park offers a special that piques your interest, go! Last night their special entrée was a lightly battered soft-shell crab with a flavorful yet subtle smoked tomato butter along with grilled cauliflower salad. She loved it and I loved the tomato butter. For me? Manila clams steamed in the most amazing clam broth I've ever had, deep with flavor, but not overwhelming the sweet, delicate, delicious clams. They generously gave me another piece of charred bread to soak up every drop of broth! This was a generous appetizer dish that with the addition of their butter lettuce salad made a great meal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Consistently fineSaybrookGrantDined on 6/10/2014You always get a great meal at The Park. The place is small but the cooking is mighty.Special Features:
- 20$ Fixed PriceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/10/2014We enjoyed the fried chicken special. The Park does a fixed price dinner every Tuesday. You get a choice of soup or salad, meat or vegetable entre, and dessert. All of the food was excellent, came quickly and the service was great.Special Features:
- Always greatSLdinerDined on 6/3/2014As always the food was excellent and the Tuesday three-course dinner is always a treat.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The Park is one of the bestLordginVIPDined on 5/27/2014The Park remains one of the best restaurants in the city with great service and AMAZING food! We visit here quite frequently and have NEVER been disappointed with the food. Everything is fresh and flavorful and on Tuesdays we are treated to new creations! This week was the Lamb Mousaka which is better than anything I've had at any Greek restaurants! Thank you Rob for great service and thank you Josh for the best food ever!Special Features:
- Feels Like Home!dahaleDined on 5/24/2014Such a warm and welcoming neighborhood treasure! The food is stellar and creative. The experience is reasonably priced and service amiable and good. Such a pleasure to return to The Park!Special Features:
- MimiVIPDined on 5/17/2014Outstanding in every way. This chef is cooking extraordinary food. Everything on the menu is a wonderful culinary treat. It is worth a trip.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIPDined on 5/10/2014will return, excellent freshly prepared food, generous portions, very nice service, nice selection of French wines,very casual, only downside is finding parking on the hill by the restaurant with many apartments and houses nearby, so allow extra time for that. menu was very fun and eclecticSpecial Features:
- Still the best bites for the buckSaybrookGrantDined on 5/6/2014Sad, they increased the price of the Tuesday prix fixe menu, but it's still amazing. How does one little place serve killer fried chicken one week, melt in your mouth brisket the next and then amazing Baja-style tacos? I don't know how they do it, but they do do it.Special Features:
- Great Food-Service-DealsOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 5/1/2014This place has great and great service. They also have different deals throughout the work.Special Features:
