    One of the best meals my husband and I have ever had. Our server was attentive and answered all of our menu questions. The food was phenomenal! The meatballs melt in your mouth and the filet was cooked to perfection. Don’t sleep on this place and book now! We are lucky enough to live down the street and will be back soon!

    We asked for a quiet room and we were put in the back by ourselves. It was like a private party. Our waiter was friendly but not officious. We frequent the Park Cafe because it feels like home.

    We sat on the outside patio, although covered in some places, sun was still an issue at our table. Waiter was friendly enough, but not terrible knowledgeable of menu questions. My wife had the caprice tomato salad and the seared scallops and they were excellent. I had the house salad and the filet mignon. The house salad was great, but the filet not so much. It was overdone, and accompanied by all sorts of foody like items. Not my cup of tea. I miss the old park cafe tenderloin tips with bernaise sauce with palm frites. Also we had the crème brûlée for desert, and it’s not as good as the park cafe of a few years ago. They have expanded their menu to include small plates and more appetizers though. Just not a place to go for a steak.

    The outdoor patio is a gem in the busy Sylvan Park area because it's protected from traffic noise by a tall wooden fence and it's covered - a very pleasant way to enjoy the spring/summer weather. Chef Paul's specials were delicous. Our three diners enjoyed the lamb, scallops, and catfish. The cocktails are always good here.

    Went out for date night with the husband and sat on the patio. From start to finish, the evening went perfectly. I had all but given up on old school professional service, but our server, Ben changed that. His friendly service was attentive without overbearing and he allowed us to set the pacing of our meal with perfection. The food was terrific too. Great night. Will definitely be back and will ask for Ben.

    We made a reservation far in advance and ended up getting seated in the bar. It was so loud it was ridiculous. The server did a great job, but the food was definitely mediocre - I have had so much better at Park Cafe in the past.
