Excellent customer focus with fantastic food. We loved the she crab soup, crab cake appetizers. We also had the pork chop and red fish as the main courses and they were fantastic.

New Year’s Eve. They were very busy but managed the flow very well. We ate at a table in the bar, which was a bit crowded at first. The bartender, working solo, was our waiter and did an outstanding job of taking care of us! We were extremely impressed with his ability to juggle it all. I’m sorry I can’t remember his name. Park Heights is our new favorite restaurant in Tupelo.

Excellent! The restaurant was naturally crowded for New Year’s Eve. Reservation was ready. They served a limited menu which was incredibly good. Drinks were outstanding. Our server was very professional and delightful. Gave us undivided attention although it was obvious that she was busy. Overall experience was top notch. We will certainly be back.

We dined for NYE and we’re nervous about COVID. The staff were very accommodating and checked back with us about the patio dining option as the weather forecast was dicey. Everything turned out very well; the patio was lovely and we had a nice view of the stage for the evening’s performance. Our waiter was masked and attentive. My mixed green salad was very large and had the perfect amount of dressing. The salmon was slightly over cooked but still quite good. I appreciated that they offered Kendall Jackson Chardonnay as well as a variety of interesting cocktails. The cost is high for Tupelo but the quality of food and attentive staff make up for it. We look forward to returning on our next visit down South!

My wife and I rely on Open Table while on trans-continental road trips. So we made reservations at Park Heights two weeks before reaching Tupelo, MS.

We got to the restaurant centrally located in a beautiful mid century building with views and an appetizing menu. But it took 20 minutes for the hostess to find our waitress to get a glass of water and our first beverage order, followed by the eventual dinner order.

After noticing that two nearby couples who arrived after we did were enjoying their dessert, one and one-half hours after arrival we left without our dinner being served, which we finished next-door at Fairpark Grill.

We had pork osso buco with risotto, two salads and drinks. Food was extraordinary - one of the best meals I have ever had. The chef is clearly skilled - much better than I would have expected to find in Tupelo Mississippi. I will definitely go back next time I visit the city. The waitress was very pleasant and helpful. The restaurant staff overall seemed a bit disorganized. They could benefit from better management and training. Our food took too long to come out - I think they originally prepared the wrong dish and had to start over. This was OK by us because we were not in a hurry, but I did not get an overall sense of professionalism from the staff. The host in particular seemed disinterested. Otherwise, everything else was perfect.

This is a good as it gets in town there’s a true chef that cook everything from scratch and unfortunately we cannot say much about the same in many of these restaurant around here …so for Park Heights to me is the top in town delivering good consistent quality food

The roof top was beautiful. However the service on the roof top was poor at best. We ordered appetizer. It took 20 minutes before anyone came to take our food order. Our entrees arrived luke warm. Server, Deon, was still nowhere to be found. Again, the atmosphere was awesome, but service was poor. Food would have been great, if it was hot.

It’s nice to have an elevated dining experience in Tupelo MS. The attention to detail is what you pay for. I expect good food served piping hot and it was! Drinks were especially wonderful. We celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary at this meal.

This was our first time there. It was fantastic! Our server asked if we would like to space out our courses (yes please!) which was so refreshing. The food was amazing! Try the halibut with the lobster risotto-YUM! Beautiful decor. Not too loud, not weirdly quiet. We had a great time; will definitely be back!

Disappointed in the menu. Items have enjoyed in the past and what was showing on line were not available. Steak I got was very bland and was not looking for a 16 oz ribeye. Just not as good as past visits.

Grilled Caesar had no taste. Dressing was so bland didn’t taste like it had any salt which pretty much said no anchovy.

Crab cakes had absolutely no seasoning. Frozen crab cakes from store would have been better. Best bite of meal was grilled carrot.

Service was good. Value terrible.

The food was tasty, but overpriced for the quality and portion size. The parmesan potatoes were literally some slightly broken up potatoes with a clump of parmesan on top. The crash cake was good, but you get one small crab cake (not big enough to share) for$12. Had it been 2, it would have been perfect. The steak was small and subpar to any chain steak house. I had heard really good things but was pretty disappointed.

We were there with the Blue Suede Cruise. Our reservation was for 5:30 and we HAD to be out by 6:45 pm. I had the steak & truffle fries, absolutely divine, with the best grilled veggies I think I have ever had! Appetizers & dinner and we easily made the concert. Thanks for a great dinner!
