Diner Reviews
  • "This 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."

  • "I 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."

  • "We'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."

  • "Friday 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."

  • "Came 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."

  • "My 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."

  • "The 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! "

  • "Sad, 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."

  • "Funky Echo Park restaurant. Szechuan fried calamari was different and yummy. Hangar steak was typical--teriyaki sauce was good; tempura broccoli was tasty--and I'm not a fan of tempura. Other family members were happy with their lobster pasta appetizer, pork chop entree and fried polenta entree. IMO, the Bourbon Butterscotch pudding was kind of tasteless; I tasted neither bourbon nor butterscotch. Apple tarte was chock full of almonds and super sweet."

  • "I went to the Park a couple days before valentines day and had the best meal I've had in a long time! I actually said the words "it's like a party in my mouth!".everything from appetizer to dessert was amazing. Each item was put together in a way I've never had before. I look at their chef as a scientist with food. We had such a good meal that we cancelled our original Valentine's Day plans to come here. Go try it and get anything on the menu to see what I'm talking about."

  • "Naturally, in the dead middle of winter it is perfectly appropriate to eat outside in the wonderful warmth of SoCal weather. Came in for lunch with an old friend since he had never been to The Park. Got the Lamb Gyro sandwich, and was very pleased with the decision. I was expecting strips of lamb, but it was more like ground lamb made into strips. Absolutely delicious. I was expecting some more tzatziki in the wrap, so I just asked some more on the side. I highly recommend asking for some tzatziki on the side, because it complimented the sandwich quite well. Again, The Park does not disappoint. Looking forward to my next visit!"

  • "I noticed there wasn't a lot of reviews for the Monday Night Sushi...so here one is! Here is the rundown. 5 different rolls, offered for $5 each, with another 3-4 vegetarian rolls offered for $4 each. I've never told a waiter/waitress I want to "order the whole menu" and mean it, but that is exactly what my fiance and I did! We said we'll take one of everything, and ended up getting 8 different rolls of sushi. Here's the breakdown: Each roll is 8 pieces, with the exception of the spider roll, which is 4, but is much larger in comparison. The rolls include typical rolls you find at 'typical' sushi joints, except for an amazing bargain. The chef formally worked at Sushi-Roku. Flavor was good, price is amazing, definitely worth a try."

  • "Came in on a random Saturday evening to give their Winter menu and weekend special items a shot. We enjoyed the Oxtail stew, the 'Seafood Linguine' weekend special with Manila clams, mussels, etc., and the 'Beef Salad' weekend special appetizer. Food, as always, amazing. The attention to detail for the balance of flavors going on in the "beef salad" was incredible. It took on a Thai influence, with a wonderful mix of vegetables and beef (shoulder < I asked waitress), and levels of spicy heat, sourness, and sweet. The Oxtail Stew was incredible, but not mind-blowing incredible. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a heart-warming dish to satisfy on a cold day. The Linguine special was executed perfectly. Seafood was spot on."

  • "Tuesday evenings The Park offers a starter, entree and dessert for $15; this week it was meatloaf and mashed potatoes with carrots, a delicious lentil soup to start and bread pudding with cinnemon semifredo for dessert. I was in a hurry and the $15 tab was appealing, so I ordered the special even though it wouldn't be my first choice. As usual at The Park, I scarfed down every morsel. I've never had a bad meal at this place. Service is excellent. Even the coffee (extra $$) was good. I would rather they didn't wait to open on Tuesdays until 6PM, but other than that I love this place."

  • "Consistently good, creative but comforting food prepared by people who clearly know and love food. Service is friendly, open and helpful without ever being too attentive. It's clear everyone in front and back of house are on the same page, have the same mission to feed people high-quality food lovingly prepared in a comfortable and fun environment. Tremendous value to boot."

  • "Thoughtfully composed menu crafted with complementary flavors; perfect portion size, imaginative but not precious plating, and high-quality ingredients. Attentive service and nice wine list. Had a lovely evening and enjoyed a great neighborhood destination with very reasonable pricing."

  • "Did not even know this restaurant was there until I saw it listed on OpenTable and after reading the many positive reviews noted here, I tried it with a friend and am able to concur this is one great neighborhood restaurant! My friend and I shared an empanada-like turnover as an appetizer which was good, and I had the lamb shoulder for my main - which was very good and that alone is worth repeat trips. Presentation is also very good. Tables for two a bit small in my opinion...but not enough to miss out on this chef's tastes. I recommend and I look forward to my next visit."

  • "Came in to enjoy the $15 Tuesday Night Prix Fixe meal with my fiance. Food = Fantastic. Always a choice of two starters, two entrees, and one dessert. Always a Carnivore, and Vegetarian option (except dessert). My fiance and I got one of each, and shared the plates. Everything was superb. Ambiance = There is a lot of 'positive energy' here. You walk in and instantly it feels comfortable and like home. The center of the tiny dining space often has a large party, and this visit was no exception. Someone was celebrating a birthday, and it overall brought a wonderful cheery and lively vibe to the restaurant. Service = Attentive when you want them to be, friendly, but at times can be a bit slow. Overall the staff was excellent this time."

  • "I have a fond relationship with The Park Restaurant. After I proposed to my fiance, me, her, and our closest friends came to The Park to celebrate. After a graduation ceremony, everyone agreed The Park is where we should go eat. And occasionally, at random, I love to visit The Park and take in its charm, awesome food, and good times. Just outside of downtown LA, It is one of the few places that I can take anyone from my various walks of life, and they will find something they will be satisfied with. They have dishes for folks like my family, who don't like to be too 'fancy', to dishes mostly for those who like to be adventurous, such as myself. Carnivores, Herbivores, Vegetarians alike, The Park rarely disappoints. A true neighborhood gem."
