    We have been back to Park SH. It is a really nice restaurant and always enjoyable. We don't mind paying for high quality. This is our third time back to Park this year. The food is always very good. And love the option of organic chicken on the menu. Funny we go to a top rated steak house and don't order steak, but the menu is great with options. The Salmon is a great dish. Lobster bisque in also a favorite. Up stairs can be crowded and noisy, but the service was always great. This time we were seated downstairs. While it was much quieter, the service wasn't great. We waited very long for dinner, desert and then the check. It seemed like our waiter was always upstairs. The food was very good, as usual.

    We came in from the city for a client lunch, and this was a really nice choice - great service, great menu, great wine. The room is nice but really nothing special (typical steakhouse), however the bar was pretty impressive! I ordered the Chopped Steakhouse Salad with steak which was good, however pretty ordinary, but everyone else's food was delicious. I recommend the Octopus Salad - it was an awesome app to start with! I will say though, this is known more as a dinner spot - it was pretty quiet for lunch.

    The Park Steakhouse is an excellent choice for the steak and seafood lover! The appetizers were equally delicious! We sat upstairs and had a corner seat which was perfect for the 6 of us. The noise level was moderate which was refreshing and the ambience reflected a high-end restaurant. The drinks are pretty pricey, however I would recommend this place.

    If you want a good steak, Park Steakhouse is not the place. I had the 24 oz Porterhouse for $53.00. Way overpriced for a 1/2" to 3/4" thick tasteless piece of meat. The staff did offer a full refund and was very accommodating. I refused and finished the steak. The rest of the food was mediocor at best.

    This was our first visit & our expectations were exceeded. The atmosphere was lovely. The service was friendly and professional. The food was superb. For app's we had a very nice chopped salad & the pork belly, for dinner we had sea bass & short ribs, and for dessert we had chocolate souffle. All of the food was expertly prepared, beautifully seasoned, and absolutely delicious. We heard several nearby patrons raving about their food, as well. We will definitely return!

    If you have a jones for a well prepared, good cut of meat, you won't be disappointed at Park Steakhouse. The NY Strip was cooked and served to perfection and although they didn't let me substitute mashed for the shoestring that came with the steak, the mashed were fresh and delicious. Definitely a do over!

    Have not been there in 13 years but decided to go because the appetizers seemed unique and desserts seemed good. One couple with us just shared appetizers and I have to say all we tried were amazing, especially the sliders, scallop with foie gras, lobster tacos just to name a few. Desserts were also very very good, different than the normal steakhouse which is a good thing. The only thing that disappointed was the steak itself, we shared a porterhouse for 2, it was dry and cooked beyond medium, was tough and didn't have much flavor. At $84 and being a steakhouse I would have expected more. I will return but will do as the other couple did and share several of the amazing appetizers.

    We chose to go to The Park to celebrate my birthday. We have gone there before , usually on a week night to celbrate a special occasion. This was Saturday night , and it was pretty crowded. We were in between the early birds leaving and the next group of folks waiting. Although we had a reservation for 8:30 we were pushed back some, but the staff was very supportive and provided alternatives, we were happy staying at the bar and having a drink. Finally when the table was ready, the offered us a round of drinks on the house, which we were appreciative, and it also made the night a little more special. Thanks to the professional team , from the waiters, bartender, and entire staff for a great night - food was great as well

    Don't go to the Park Steakhouse very often but several times a year and it always delivers. Starting off with an ice cold martini helps. Food is always delicious and service is generally top notch. I would recommend Park Steakhouse to anyone.

    We've been going to the Park Steakhouse for year and have had good initial experiences. This time around, we were 5 and when we arrived we were quickly showed to our table. We started with the steakhouse salad, which this time was off. Previous times, were really enjoyed it - but this night it was off. As for the mains we all ordered steaks. A couple of filet mignons, a hanger steak and a cowboy (bone-in rib-eye). When we were served 4 of the steaks arrived on one time - but the hanger steak was MIA. It arrived 5 minutes later. We then discovered two of the steaks were undercooked. All in all - a very disappointing experience and no proper response by the restaurant. We will not be back.

    I had a reservation on a Saturday night, the person I was meeting was slightly late. The host was more than pleasant about the delay which really started the evening off well. Things just got better after that, the food was wonderful and the wait staff was truely professional. My only wish is that I lived closer.
