I've been to many high end restaurants and ones with celebrity chefs in Nashville, but Park Cafe offered the most wonderful meals. The entrees had such amazing flavors, every bite was delicious. The wines were excellent. And all this for a reasonable price, a true price performer. It's our new favorite restaurant and it's in our neighborhood. I highly recommend Park Cafe.
After rave reviews from friends and family, I was overall pleased with the food and service. We wished to sit outside and a very pleasant Summer day and we're told no due to the lack of servers. We instead asked to sit near the back door and was immediately taken to a really great table. The drinks were phenomenal and the food was pretty good, too. We had several different drinks from the bar and ordered the hummus app, and a couple of pizzas which were FAB! The service was super professional and we encountered several (4+) staff helping our table of two (but not enough staff for the patio?!?) and we never wanted for anything. I will certainly be back with the hopes of being able to sit out on the highly suggested patio!
We had not been to Park Café in quite some time, and all three of us enjoyed our meals--two of us ordered filets while one had trout. Our waitress, Alex, was attentive and fun. We do miss the more eclectic art and furnishings; the vibe now is comparatively sedate and bland. But it is about the food and service and we will be going back soon.
one of our favorite restaurants. Great meal, and our server was particularly nice and attentive. Nice ambiance for a meal, and wonderful food and drink, who would want more?
We are native Nashvillians and this was our first trip to Park Cafe but it definitely won’t be our last. Park Cafe is now one of our top 3 favorite restaurants in Nashville! The food was amazing but reasonably priced, our service was top notch, and the atmosphere was very pleasant.
Haven't been to Park Café is quite some time. Arrived at the end of Happy Hour and the bar area was packed. we were led to a nice window table in the dining areas. Service was nice, the food was excellent. Definitely like what they have done with the place since our last visit.
Yvette was very friendly and welcoming!
I have dined here a number of times, but this may have been the best meal out of them all. My favorite dishes were great as usual, and the new plates we tried were fantastic as well. We were celebrating our one year anniversary and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our server even brought us a dessert on the house which we very much appreciated.
Very Nice. Not spectacular, but the food was good, the service was as well, and it was quiet enough to carry on a conversation. I think we will be returning to the Park Cafe.
Our server, Alex, was great. The kitchen was slow getting food out but, luckily we weren't in a hurry. Everyone really enjoyed their food. Thanks for a great evening!
Always top notch. Simple, small, good service, and great food.
Good food at very reasonable prices. Always personal and good service.
Lovely neighborhood spot with great dishes and drinks. Love the salmon and coconut rice but everything else on the menu is fantastic.
We frequent Park Cafe and have always enjoyed eating here. The hostess could not have been more accommodating and warmly welcomed us. The server, although new, seemed rushed, distracted and not completely tuned in. Perhaps new to Park Cafe; perhaps new to the role. My salad and entree were served within five minutes apart-awkward! Our check was delivered and then we were asked if we would like dessert. Hesitant to return immediately and would not accept the same server in the future.
The ambiance is a great feature. The food is outstanding. We had great service from the valet, mater’d., and the servers. They were all very attentive but not imposing. I had lamb-shank which was prepared and served just right Another had salmon and said it was very good. Two had tartare both really raved about it. Drink and wine selection is varied. I will go back
It was a very busy night, also very noisy. Too noisy for me however I'll go back during the week on a slower night or be seated on the patio which looks very pretty and inviting.
I love the Park Cafe -- every time I'm there I am reminded of the amazing food and great atmosphere. This time our waiter was a bit pushy, and that took away from the overall experience. But this is not the norm so I'll be back --
The food was very good but the service was so slow that we were exhausted by the time we left.
Love the patio area. Not as thrilled with new menu, especially the small plates. Miss the dumplings and Brussels sprouts salad.
We had a delicious meal. Our guests agreed it was one of the best meals they have had. In particular we all said that the charcuterie plate was the best they have ever had. Drinks were delicious and the atmosphere and the service was perfect!!
Food has become marginal. I had a flatbread that was mostly bread and very little in the way of toppings. Friend has a salad that was so heavily dressed there was a pool of dressing on the plate. Our server "jokingly" offered us ice water with "roofies" in it, then referred to me as "babe" for the remainder of the evening. This is reprehensible behavior from waitstaff.
Park Cafe used to be a favorite, but there are so many better options, I will likely never return.
Such a fun vibe! Slighty noisy, but that adds to the fun, vibrant vibe! You are still able to
carry on a conversation at your table.
Elizabeth is adorable! Great addition to your staff!
4 stars for food b/c the mussels were really small and my toast was burnt.
Park Cafe is always a wonderful place to dine! The food is wonderful and the service is prompt.
Park Cafe has become our "go to" neighborhood restaurant. The food is consistently very good and while not falling prey to the trendy "eclectic" category, there is plenty of diversity on the menu. Both waitstaff and front of the house ADMINISTRATION ARE COURTEOUS AND HIGHLY PROFESSIONAL. This restaurant is a gem-keep doing what you are doing and don't feel compelled to reinvent yourself!
This was our first visit to Park Cafe with friends who have been there frequently. Our server was Charlie. The first dish she brought to the table was a starter with a sticky sauce. As she set the dish down she tipped it and spilled sauce on my clothing as well as the table in front of me. I had to tell her four times that the table was still sticky, that I needed clean flatware
I thought with such an egregious breach of good service they would have comped some portion of the meal.
The food was very good but with so many great restaurants in Nashville I doubt it will be worth going back or recommending to our friends
The occasion was our daughter’s birthday. She and I ordered the fllet. Mine was perfect, hers about half gristle. I didn’t feel like we were adequately compensated for the inferior piece of steak. Don’t know if I will return.
Birthday dinner always love Park Cafe
Park Cafe is one of my favorite restaurants. It never disappoints! It is pretty close to perfect!
Yes we will recommend and we will return!
Great service, attentive and responsive. Excellent food and quiet enough for good conversation!
Service was decent but very slow. Lettuce wedge was small- fried tomatoes had very little breading or flavor. The green salad was so small it was funny. Mussels were excellent. Bouillabaisse appeared to have been spilled - scallops were totally missing, fish was mashed up, very little sauce and lukewarm. This was an unusual experience as they are normally really good. Dessert took 15 minutes. Perhaps server had too many tables.
Good food and nice atmosphere.
We loved it
I visited on Valentine's Day. They served a very nice special meal for that day. The meal was very good and the setting was perfect for the day. We enjoyed it.
Normally a favorite go to for nice dinner. Hopefully this was a fluke. Brussel sprout salad drenched with dressing, egg cooked hard, brisket tacos were basically ground up chili at bottom of bowl of chips. One standout was the meatballs.
Park Cafe is an excellent Nashville restaurant. Great location on West Nashville near Vanderbilt University. Food and Service is excellent! Atmosphere is pleasant for business or personal evening out! Will definitely be a regular customer going forward.
Food was outstanding. Great ambiance for visiting with the people at your table.
Our wait staff was phenomenal. Excellent knowledge of the menu and suggestions were fantastic.
I love park cafe! It’s always consistent. The food is superb, love the salmon, mussels and specials are always a surprise and delicious. Service is perfect. I can come in jeans for a quick dinner at the bar or dress up for a special occasion and feel equally comfortable.
One of our Nashville favorites. We like the quiet, intimate, and comfortable atmosphere, and the service and food are both very good.
