    There were three of us dining in late June 2022 and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We shared the mushroom truffle bruschetta for our appetizer and agreed that it was exceptional. The staff were attentive and very nice!

    Lovely neighborhood spot. We ate outside and they made sure we were comfortable by moving the heaters around. The food was very good, fresh and flavorful. They also have an extensive wine list for a small restaurant.

    Treated myself and my adult son to a day in San Francisco. Capped our day with an early dinner at Bistro Central Parc. It was a last minute decision based on location and reviews. Very happy went with this restaurant. After a walk from Golden Gate Park, arrived earlier than our reservation but were seated quickly. Requested outdoor dining & the music was nice & not too loud. Started with the burrata. The fig jam & pistachio perfectly complimented the toast & the arugula added that touch of garden freshness. So good, seriously thought about ordering another but decided to leave room for dessert. I ordered the capellini pomodoro & to drink, white & rose flight. I don't drink much but enjoyed the trio with the Daou Rose becoming my quick favorite. My son ordered the gnocchi gorgonzola along with the chardonnay flight. I believe the Copain was his favorite. I had a bite of the gnocchi but tbh, strong cheeses aren't my thing. The nutty smooth creamy taste almost made me regret my dinner choice lol. It really was that good. I kept stealing little dabs of the sauce with a forkful of my angel hair 😂 After cleaning our plates, we ordered the bread pudding & the spumoni. Both delicious! No regrets in choosing Bistro Central Parc as a last minute dinner reservation. Toni, our waiter, was very friendly & fantastic sense of humor. The check came in a small paperback edition of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. As a book lover, this was awesome. Very nice touch ♥️

    Such a neighborhood gem! Went on a busy Friday night. All the employees were clearly working hard. For instance, Alexandria, the hostess, was also helping at the bar. Not to mention, the food and romantic atmosphere were great. No regrets coming here. We’re already talking about coming back.

    What a great find! We wanted a small neighborhood restaurant away from downtown where we were staying. Started with a three-course wine flight while we looked over the menu. The lights on the ceiling make for great ambiance too.

    This is turning into a goto place for us when in the City. It's close to GG park and the museums, so we like a local spot to grab a glass of wine and bite. The food here is always top notch. We have tried many of the items on the menu and are never disappointed. The mushroom bruschetta is devine. My favorite entrée is the seafood risotto and my wife loves the mushroom ravioli. The servers are always friendly, and the manager/owner is on hand to answer questions, make a wine suggestion or give you a little encouragement to order dessert. This is a fun, friendly spot with great food. Give it a try.

    The apps were straight forward and tasty. The ravioli was piping hot in the middle but pretty cold on the outside. The sauce could have used some salt. Not bad but could definitely improve.

    Service was friendly and efficient. We had calamari appetizer. I had seafood pasta for main and it was very good. My guest had the teriyaki steak, but that was too salty. :(. Dessert was good - creme burlee & chocolate mousse.

    A little pricey for Italian, but then everything is pricier, and we have not been out that much the past two years. Excellent food, but could have used more spice -- another pinch of salt in the pasta water, as my wife says, and where was the garlic? But very nice portions very well cooked.

    We had an amazing dinner to celebrate our recent engagement! We got lucky and practically had the restaurant to ourselves until more guests joined toward the end of the meal. They provided exceptional service and some complimentary champagne and dessert for our special night. We enjoyed everything we ate and loved the beautiful ambiance (the ceiling lights are very pretty). Made for an excellent dinner and can’t wait to return to this restaurant!
