A word from The Park
The Park stands out from the rest. This hip spot in the heart of the meatpacking district is bound to impress even the most jaded of the New York elite. Each room evokes a different theme--from the rainforest-style dining room to the Red Room infused with Asian aesthetic. The dining room encircles an immense cluster of bamboo, with other tropical plants stand strategically placed. The organic nature of the setting is complimented splendidly by the healthy, adventurous dishes of new American cuisine on the menu. A glass enclosed Atrium offers a secluded and chic spot for any private event or party. The penthouse leads to a rooftop patio with a hot tub, also suited for social gatherings. In addition, a heated outdoor garden with Japanese maple trees gives diners the chance to enjoy the Park's distinct cuisine outside any time of year. Come to the Park and escape from the norm.

    I've been to The Park a few times, and recently visited for a business lunch. They consistently deliver on food, service, and atmosphere. I've also hosted a girls' night dinner in the past - they were really accommodating of our large party, and treated us like gold. Will be back for sure!

    Beautiful spot with several different types of rooms that could easily accommodate for large groups. Large brunch menu, with something for everyone. Everyone enjoyed their food, service was good. Only complaint was our table was a bit tiny for 4, so it was hard to fit our plates.

    I had not been to The Park in a while and had dinner there the other night. Such a unique layout that's a perfect plce to go out on a date or meet a group of friends. Food is basic, but good. Great atmosphere. The one thing they used to always lacked was attentive and pleasant help, but I have to say there's been a big improvement on that front. Waiter was excellent and nice. Hostess was spot on and the manager even came by the table to ensure everything was fine (it was). I'll definitely be back more often now that I'm living in the neighborhood.

    Nice selection from the salmon hash with poached eggs to breakfast pizza. Service was a little slow but it was nice not to be rushed. Asked for spicy Bloody Mary then needed to ask for horseradish to help it. Avoid the Bloody Mary if you like it spicy. French fries are the best. Was informed secret is powdered vinegar! Nice feeling you are eating outside without the wind and cold.

    Was at The Park for a 30th anniv dinner with friends. We shared 2 appetizers,(Baked Artichoke Dip, & Marinated Mediterranean Olives),each had an entree,(2 salads & a pasta dish),ordered a Brussels Sprouts side, & shared dessert over our espresso/cappuccino. We rated the food good to excellent, especially Seafood Strozzapretti & Butternut Squash Bread Pudding. The Sprouts & roasted cauliflower in 1 salad were both done al dente. We would have preferred them more well done, but just a personal preference. I saw several negative comments about the service & wait times for food; we didn't experience any problems. A little wait for apps, but not bad, & our waiter was quite good & attentive, all this despite a wedding party in the other 3 rms.

    This was a neat looking restaurant. The food was pretty good, but the service was extremely slow. I ordered steak frites and they tried twice to give me a steak salad instead. I said "no, I ordered steak frites". 15 minutes later they tried to give me the same steak salad! I ended up eating long after the rest of the table was done eating, no apologies or compensation. The server would buzz by, look at our table and see the empty wine glasses, empty plates,etc. He never looked at us, let alone stop to see if we wanted anything. Another 15 minutes to wait for the bill, another 15 minutes for the credit card to come back. I wouldn't come back here.

    Lovely restaurant, the food was so disappointing! The gnocchi were the only good plate. Plates are pricy for the mediocre quality. Service was good, very pleasant ambiance. Seems they are noted for brunch and are a hot spot for late night partying. I doubt we'll try brunch after the disappointing dinner.

    We loved the food and the service was great. Only downfall was that I could not get a reservation for 6 online. Called twice and was sent to a voice mail where I left two messages and was never responded to. Therefore, I made 2 reservations-1 for 4 and 1 for 2- we were able to sit together - but inside only.

    Of all the Chelsea NYC restaurants, Park offers a wide enough selection of dishes - something for conervos, vegaterians, and vegans. The enclosed garden space gives the diner an outdoor feeling. Bartender has a knack for making great cocktails. The service was efficient without making you feel the house needed to turn the tables. Table layout is good so diners are not in each other's conversation.

    I came here on a raining day and the ambiance immediately changed my mood! It literally seemed as if I was outside in a park. Service was excellent, it was quiet enough to hear conversation, but lively enough I felt like there was great energy in the whole restaurant. The food is very basic and wholesome, but I prefer this for breakfast. I love traditional breakfasts and it can be found here nestled in this cozy, comforting, nature inspired space! Five stars. I'll be back!

    Really fell short of my expectations. From the moment we sat down to the moment we left. After sitting for 15 minutes, the manager had to come to take our order. The first banana bread that came over was hard the second was warm and soft. The mimosa was 90% OJ and 10% champagne. My eggs florentine was luke warm but edible. The waiter had a nice smile but that was it.

    Hostess was very accomadating with the lateness of my party. Once seated for dinner our first waiter was amazing!!!!! He was great energetic polite and full of life.. Once we received our new waiter due to a shift change service was downhill from there. Not once checking in. To see if we were ready nothing. I asked for the menu at which he gave after 15 i asked the. Didnt even wait to see WHAT i wanted. He then disaappered. Not only was reservations made for 8 and due to my late party was t seated until 9 however we did t eat until 10:15. And it wasnt even busy which was another thing i didnt understand.After speaking to management he spoke to the waiter. Service was better however very forced and with a snip attitude.

    We had a wonderful saturday brunch at the Park. The Chelsea hot spot is a former taxi garage converted to a hip outdoor locale. Host was attentive and very friendly, allowed me to request an outdoor table and accommodated my last minute request to change location. Our server was ultra professional and engaging. Curious busser/ ecpediter. Great personalities . Waffles and syrup were yummy. Great timing and delivery . See you soon!

    We enjoyed our evening and food was very good. I ordered salmon and The Park is one of the few places that asked how I wanted it cooked. The dish, overall, was one of the best salmon dishes I've had in NYC. My only complaint is that I felt rushed. Three times we were asked if we were ready to have plates taken when it was pretty clear based on amount of food remaining that we were not. I know that servers/wait staff, etc make money on table turnover and this is something I always take into consideration when I tip, but I also believe that if I take the time to make a reservation, then a bigger 'window' should be allowed to enjoy a leisured dinner. I believe this speaks volumes about how salary for servers needs to be revamped!

    I don't really consider this outdoor dining, but it's better! You don't feel the AC and you are among trees and natural light, but you are in an atrium rather than street side. I love being outdoors but I don't like eating near the exhaust of cars and buses, nor being to close to passer-bys. So for me, The Park offers a very nice setting. The food is really good, although there was an odd looking brown square that came with my omelet. The waitress said it was their version of hash browns. It did not look appetizing so I didn't try it. Sorry if that's unfair to even mention. Very nice place...go!

    The main dining room and especially the garden are a draw for the atmosphere but unfortunately the good experience ends there. The service was curt and sporadic and the food took way to long to arrive (45 minutes after our appetizers were finished.) The main dishes (the chef's burger and the risotto) were disappointing. They tried so hard to be different and unique that it just ended up being interesting at best. Neither one of us finished our meal. To be fair, the chicken pate appetizer was very good which probably made the main dishes all the more disappointing. Probably won't go back which is too bad as it is one of the few places in Manhattan with enough space that you don't feel crowded.
