About Park Kitchen
Come experience the Chef's Supper at Scott Dolich's nationally recognized Park Kitchen. Each one of Chef David Sapp's constantly evolving menus is developed to showcase and honor the best seasonal produce of the Pacific Northwest. Both the excellent craft cocktail program, and wine director Chad Fasenmyer's dynamic list of mostly local favorites arise from the same inspiration. In keeping with Park Kitchen's innovative "One House" model, all prices already include all labor. No tipping please.

Park Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Park Kitchen is a light and stylish alternative to the heavier fare that seems to be de rigeur for Portland fine dining. The vegetables were the star of our six course tasting menu, featuring a brilliant beet and goat cheese salad, charred brussels sprouts in a horseradish cream, and a simple watermelon radish salad. The menu was rounded out with their always-on-the-menu chickpea fries, a cornmeal pasta covered in spicy pork, and a perfectly cooked sirloin with a kale-cheese sauce.
The service is... different. Not bad by any stretch, just different. Park Kitchen has adopted a 'one-house' model for service - no tipping allowed - and it shows in more than just the employees' paychecks. There was clearly a 'waiter' in charge, but service responsibilities were shared by the bartender and kitchen employees depending on who was available. Park Kitchen is small enough to make this work.
Valentine's day $125 prix fixe menu was astounding. Full spectrum of flavor, mood and texture without being too weird. Absolutely worth the price of admission. My date surprised me by not being a beef eater! The fine folks at Park kitchen unflinchingly did not charge us for her meal. She ate only the vegetables and was as satisfied with the experience as I was. I wanted to leave a compensatory tip, but this place pays its employees fair wages and it shows. Bravo Park Kitchen. Thank you for a special evening.
I was really disappointed with this restaurant. It felt like they really did not have their act together, it took multiple people to figure anything out and the food was sadly mediocre. Furthermore they did not have 1 woman working the night I was there. With so many good restaurants to choose from, I will not come here again.
We went here to celebrate our anniversary. It was our first time in Portland and I found them off of reviews on TripAdvisor. Being vegetarian we were very happy to be able to have the tasting menu, which is not always possible in many restaurants.
The service and food were outstanding and we would easily visit this restaurant again.
Great food - very creative! Great service! Fun! We have been many times and always order and share the small plates. The food is prepared fairly quick. So you can order several small plates. Enjoy them. Then see how hungry you are, and order more, then repeat as long as you want right through dessert.
Several friends had recommended Park Kitchen to us and we were so pleased about our experience! From the excellent customer service (Chad!) to the exquisite selections for the chef’s supper choices, we were satisfied and satiated and ready to book our next visit by the time we left! The cornmeal pasta with eggplant was a delightful surprise, the tuna and shishito peppers smoky and perfectly prepared, and the desert....FABULOUS! We are excited to return on our next trip to Portland to discover what other culinary wonders await :)
A faded star; a pale imitation of what it once was. Sad to say, but the food quality, creativity and gourmet experience that was once a hallmark of Park Kitchen has badly faded. Uninspired and mediocre dishes. Odd (and stoned) service. Was our third choice but went because no availability a week out at our other options. That should have been a signal.
First the good news. I support Scott Dolich's decision to raise menu prices in order for employees to earn a better wage.
Now the bad news -- even though I'm a "foodie" who also loves to cook, there's something off-putting about needing a food dictionary just to understand the menu. How many questions can you ask your server before thinking you should just shut up and order even if you won't understand what you're getting?
The food was kind of ok, interesting but not exciting. The lamb has such a sour aftertaste that we sent it back. Even their signature dessert, a chocolate cake, was uninspired.
Too bad. I used to love this place.
7:30 reservation but unfortunately did not get our seat until close to 8pm which normally I would not care about but it was not a good start and only slightly acknowledged by staff. We decided on the Chef's supper, which is a tasting menu for 65 dollars per person. We were a group of 4 and the portions were very small for 4 people, we noticed that tables of two next to us were getting the same portions for their Chef's Supper. Would seem that table of 4 should get double what table of 2 receives but that was not the case.
The food was fine but nothing spectacular and certainly not worth 65 dollars a person.
On a positive note, the wine list was good and it was an intimate atmosphere. Just don't get the Chef's Supper for 4 unless you want to leave hungry.
Overall, a fairly disappointing experience.
We ordered the multi course experience where the Chef prepares a variety of small plates. A wonderful taste experience. The food was creative, new to our taste-buds, and very delicious. We could not wait until the next serving. Services too was a great balance to the experience. We'll be back.
