The manager greeted us. He was awesome.
He recommended a Chablis by the glass that was heavenly.
The food was good…. Though loads of raw onions in a crab cake seems unusual.
Our 3 courses came out so fast … too fast. But it was ok.
The ambience is awesome - beautiful restaurant! We dined on their street-side terrace. Just lovely.
The parking thing is weird - they need a valet.
No one seemed to know where we should park.
We will go back! Loved it.

The patio is lovely but unfortunately there is a lot of noise from the high rise that is being built across the street
When that is finished it should be quiet

Some of the questions are less relevant because of Covid. The food was excellent as was the service. No issue at all. Lovely meal. Noise level in the perhaps temporary outdoor seating was somewhat louder than it would have been inside and the outdoor ambience wasn't great, but the restaurant is doing the best it can, so I hope my review is not unfair in this regard.

Friendly helpful and attentive wait staff. Parking nearby a challenge partly due to major construction on 5th Ave and across the street (condo complex).. Enjoyable time.

Wonderfully inventive menu and impeccable staff. Highlights were the Ballotine chicken and the roasted cauliflower (yes, really exceptional). The lavender martini is perfect--well balanced, floral, but not too sweet.

Food quality was sub-par for the price. Tasted 'okay' but did not seem fresh-made. Either previously frozen, overcooked or simply sat under a heat lamp for hours before we ordered it. Wait staff was nice but not very attentive.

Overall not a terrible dining experience, but disappointing and absolutely not worth the price.

The staff is always amazing here. Their three course meal option is so worth it, got the artisan salad, risotto primavera, and an upside down apple pie that was delicious. I went with some picky eaters so I got the entire escargot app to myself, very happy.

We had a party of four, we each ordered something different and every single plate was absolutely amazing. We all had a few drinks as well and those were on point too. Our server Jerry was so charming, charismatic, funny and attentive. Loved him!!! There was live music which set a chill mood, Took me out of San Diego and put me in Europe. I will Absolutely recommend this place again.

This is now our place. The food was wonderful, drinks were mixed perfectly, great ambiance and the service was impeccable. Isabella made the experience memorable, it was as if she was our own personal attendant. Parking is a little tough but because everything else was picture-perfect you won't pay attention to this small hiccup. Chilean sea bass exquisite and the scallops full of flavor. Leads me to believe the rest of the menu is just as good. We will be returning soon.

Three of us had a great Saturday night at this excellent bistro! The food was outstanding with generous portions - the service was professional and gracious. The most remarkable thing was that we were able to enjoy a lively conversation on the outside patio without competing with loud music or noise. I highly recommend this neighborhood gem!

My friends and I were celebrating our first French meal after more than a year of pandemic isolation. We were not disappointed. Everything we ordered was outstanding and caused us to rave about how much we were enjoying it. Complementing the food was the attentive service and the quiet outdoor area where we were seated. If you hunger for excellent French cuisine, I highly recommend Parc Bistro-Brasserie.

Loved this place and when visiting San Diego again, I’ll make sure I go again.

The food is presented very well with a knowledgeable waitress.

They have vegetarian dishes, if you don’t eat meat. A beautiful bar and good ambiance.

San Diegans are lucky to have this restaurant.

Great Sunday night dinner. Competent and helpful staff... ambience normally wonderful but a couple of boisterous parties using their outdoor voice was unusual for the Parc Bistro. I had the salmon which was perfectly cooked and presented on a bed of mach potatoes which were delicious. Started with a cup of the sweet red pepper soup which was creamy and full of flavor. So great to see the Parc Bistro fully open again :-)
