It had been a few years since we last ate at No. 9 Park and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The food was wonderful and our waiter, Alex, was one of the best we have had. Highly recommend No. 9 Park.

I have been going to 9 Park for several years always found the food to be superb, until the past two visits. Perhaps, this time, we ordered the wrong main courses: striped bass.

Our meal was fine. Just fine. My gnocchi was a little tough, the halibut a little overdone, but in general, it was a decent experience. Though for the price, I'm sure there are better options.

From the moment we entered we were welcomed and wished a happy anniversary. The service was efficient and so gracious, especially Artiana and Kendall. We started with oysters and the tagliatelle appetizer. Excellent!!!
My husband had the Duck and I had the Sea Bass. The meals were wonderful and nicely presented!
A very nice experience.

The food was nothing short of spectacular. The foie gras gnocchi has been on menu since they opened 21 years ago and I can see why, holy crap! Impeccable white glove service with a smile. Best meal i've had in a loooong time.

I have been to No 9 Park many times in the past. I am not sure that I will return. First, I have never thought that the noise level was particularly high but the people around us were all talking so inappropriately loud that the sound escalated. Second, our waitress- who was lovely - engaged in very long conversations with the patrons at other tables. I heard her life story twice. Thus, she had no time for us. At some point, someone sent someone else to at least take drink orders. I appreciate friendly service. That does not mean becoming friends with the patrons. Finally, at the end of the night, staff seemed to just disappear. No one was at the host/hostess desk to say goodnight or to see if we needed a taxi.

We went to No. 9 Park with our Nova Scotian, well-traveled friends. Food and service were spot on but atmosphere is a bit old-school stuffy. We each ordered a different first and main course - and we were all pleased! Severe nut allergy was discussed and we felt confident we would be accommodated and indeed we were. No. 9 Park just turned 21 yrs old - might be time for a subtle make over interior wise. Love the No 9 Park wines from Au Bon Climat, Santa Barabara - great value and in the spirit of French Whites and Italian Reds. Quiet atmosphere - perfect for an evening out when you desire quiet conversation.

Excellent service. The appetizers and my steak were top notch. My wife said her salmon was good but not great. Cocktails were original well-balanced concoctions. My wine from the Azores was wonderful! No room for desert, but they gave us a nibble with check that was just right.

For a special occasion, No. 9 Park is the place to go!

When we arrived my husband and I had a lovely cocktail at the bar. Bartender was attentive and charming. We were not rushed to our table, and when we sat down to dine, everything was wonderful. Kristi was amazing explaining each course to us. All in all it was a memorable experience and we will definitely be returning soon. Miriam Varian Heneghan.

Excellent, high quality restaurant which we would recommend our friends to go especially for a particular occasion. The staff were very attentive and serviced all of our needs. The food was excellent from the tasting menu and was good value. We had a pleasant surprise when they provided to us a compliment anniversary desert which finished off our evening nicely.

Exceptional in every way. From our greeting upon entering, table selection, prompt and informed service, excellent wait staff interactions (these people are all very well informed about both the menu items and the wine selections) we had a marvelous evening. While many of Barbara lynch’s restaurants offered firm tasting menus, now they offer both a la carte and tasting menu selections which allow the guests to select from either category. We ordered one item from the a la carte menu and another from the tasting menu. I had a duck entree that combined roasted and confit duck - maybe the best, most moist and flavorful i’ve Ever had. Start to finish - this was a wonderful evening.

The interior is a little worn and outdated. The food was above average but I could not balance it with the price. Service was excellent but a little over attentive. When I pay $45 dollars for a steak, it better be the best steak I have ever eaten. Longhorn and Texas Roadhouse was as good. Why charge $4 for an oyster when everybody else in the world charges $3. What did they do to the Oysters to make it more expensive. Are they free range or did they sing to the oyster before they shucked it. I think this place needs an overhaul in both the atmosphere and offering. Not current with the times. It was a good experience, it was not a great experience as I would expect for the value.

My husband selections were quit good yet what I selected of an appetizer mozzarella with peaches ...the peaches were too hard needed to ripen.. The salmon was tasteless and over cooked...no pizzazz. I can cook a more interesting and correct salmon. Yet everything my husband ordered was outstanding and the service was very good! The desert of blueberry something was just o-kay...needed homemade vanilla ice-cream or cinnamon ice cream. I don't know I wasn't that impressed for all the hoopla of a James Beard chef. Perhaps she was on vacation.....I would recommend to a friend only to prove me wrong....

Although my first chefs tasting, this was the most amazing and unforgettable gastronomic experience of my life. Yes, expensive for me, but worth every penny and I'd do it again. So much love felt in every mouthful. Extraordinary. Thank you for what you do.

Great Anniversary dinner! Service was amazing and food was too! They were able to accommodate us with a table with view of park. A special surprise came when the dessert we ordered to share was complete with chocolate hand written message “Happy Anniversary!” on the plate! Sweet ending! Will definitely go back!

Our first visit and was skeptical at first given the limited a la cart menu selections but once choices were made we were very happy with presentation, preparation and flavors. Waitstaff very friendly and welcoming - would go again. No surprise it has been a top rated restaurant for the past 20 years.

The tasting course menu was very disappointing. The quality of ingredients, character of dishes, plating/presentation, and especially the sauces were much like family-restaurants rather than fine-dining. The service was ok, but definitely there is room for improvement. I don’t see myself coming back to this place.

We are from Cleveland Ohio and everybody makes a joke about Cleveland, the mistake on the lake. Cleveland has better food than this place will ever serve in its entire duration. We were so disappointed and we wasted almost $400 .. hey, our bad for trying it… Live and learn… But they need to learn and cook!
Do not go here unless your pallet is out of commission!

Food was ordinary. Duck two ways - confit good but breast undercooked unchewable. Sauce thick and flavorless. The halibut was over cooked dry. Haven’t been in several years and a definite decline. Price point too high for the quality.
