Our first visit to Chimney Park: Food was creative and just delicious; service was A plus,
with knowledgeable, caring, engaging and patient wait staff who went the extra mile to
accede to our requests. Atmosphere was informal but sophisticated. Couldn't be more pleased...easy to recommend for anyone looking for a high-end dining experience.

We enjoyed the service and most of the food. One of us had an expensive steak and it was tough. The pork was good and the lobster bisque and the mac and cheese were exceptional.
Not sure about the value and cost given what we had to eat. We had expected the meats to be exceptional given the cost and they were not. We have had pork tenderloin and steaks at Austins that were just as good or better and not as expensive. I know we are paying for the name, but quality should be part of the name brand.

Another great meal at Chimney Park Bistro. From great cocktails (an excellent Boulevardier) and scrumptious mushroom soup to a perfectly done ribeye and very tasty carrot cake. Service by Emily was excellent as usual.

The wait staff and chef prepared a wonderful 5 course meal for our evening. Each of us received a uniquely different dish/presentation for each part of the meal. The chef came out and presented/described it all for us. Before we new it, the relaxed dinner had turned into three hours of great food, wine and service, and conversation. It’s great to slow down and enjoy the evening in this way. Kudos!!!

My husband and I went to Chimney Park for the first time to celebrate our anniversary, and were given a quiet table at the back of the restaurant behind a small partition, which made it cozy and quiet. We chose the chef's tasting menu, and shared a wine pairing, and everything was delicious. We were served some things that we normally would not have ordered, but we were glad we got to try some new foods!

Date night for the Love of my Life!!!

EVERYTHING was excellent, outstanding, amazing!!! I really mean that.
The location, atmosphere, waitstaff, food, wine, it was all excellent.
I gave it 5 stars on "value" because you certainly get what you pay for. It didn't get five stars because it was cheap, I gave five stars for value because that was the best meal we ever had!!!! Seriously, the food and the entire experience was worth every penny...

This place is perfect for us "normal" people to go to once in a while for a special occasion.

You will not be disappointed!!!!

Superb wine. Table was available when we arrived a little early. Impeccable service but not pretentious, everyone was friendly. One star subtracted for the crispy skin fish, which was too salty but otherwise our appetizer, salad, entrees were perfection in presentation, texture and flavor. Kinda wish I’d eaten less, I was too full to try the desserts. We were not rushed nor ignored at any time. Our server even noticed our table wobbled slightly and fixed it immediately!

I have been anticipating eating at Chimney Park for awhile. Finally, made it in for dinner. What a fabulous experience. The whole dining experience exceeded my expectation. The atmosphere was very modern and chic and inviting. The wait staff was attentive and well trained. When our food came out, additional wait staff jumped in to serve us all at once. That was such a simple gesture, but the effect on the dining experience was special and really enhanced the experience. The food was beyond my expectation. Chef is to be commended. The Bison was the best I've eaten.

We have eaten in fine restaurants for 30 years and I must say that our 5 course tasting menu and service on Saturday the 10th of November rivaled ANY 5 star restaurant. It was truly amazing: creative and delicious! The fact that all 6 of us received different plates was over the top! Kudos to Chef John and the wait staff. Brilliant in EVERY way!

The reason for the dinner was for our anniversary and expected and received an outstanding meal. Selected the Chef's choice dinner and wine pairing. Our waiter was excellent. It is nice that we live close by. In traveling and spending time in France yearly we have enjoyed many types of excellent meals, I must say that Chimney Park should be considered for the Michelin one star status.

Chimney Park was a great restaurant for our special occasion meal. We did the 5 course tasting menu with the wine pairing. Each course was outstanding and Daniel, our server, did an amazing job pairing wines with each course. I do not know if the pairings could have been any more perfect. We would recommend this place to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion.
