We really enjoyed our return to Park. It's a nice combination of a certain energy with a warm casual feel. Very Millennial I would say. The variety of seating settings really makes Park feel like being at home or the home of a friend/family member. We had a cute little table for three tucked away in an alcove; good people watching angle, but still cozy for us. The waitress appeared instantly as did our beverages. Park has a compact menu with something for everyone in a variety of settings. Apps and bites are alternatives to entrees. Something that matches why you are there and for how long. I had the meat pie of the day. It was a little bun of flakey crust with excellent chicken in a delicious sauce. One dining partner had the bolognese and the other stuffed acorn squash. We had to run to make the Harvard game so we did not have desert. I recall them from our first visit as delicious. I highly recommend Park. Free parking in the corner garage Sunday to Wednesday!

This was my worst experience at a restaurant and it was so bad it deserves a review this poor. I was waiting to be joined by my date when I was sat down. The waiter only gave me water and proceeded to ignore me 10 minutes. I know because I was waiting for my date. And I was waiting to be asked about wanting a drink and was never asked. The guy gave us cheese and crackers, took our orders so it seemed fine! The service WAS Very bad

Service was bad. They wouldn’t split checks and I ordered a drink at the beginning of the night that never came. Food was decent but overpriced for what it was.

Came here for a birthday date. Would 100% recommend! Neptune's Descent is by far one of the best drinks I've ever had. Everything we ordered was totally awesome. I really can't say anything negative about our experience.

Had an early Saturday evening dinner. There were 5 of us and we enjoyed everything from the appetizers to the drinks to the main course. Something for everyone on the menu.

The ambiance and decoration is very chic but cozy. We put in a special request to have one of their unique and comfy couch seats and we were accommodated without problem - they reserved the nicest table for us. I have been twice and have found the front of the house staff warm and authentically friendly. Folks seem to enjoy working there which makes for a really lovely atmosphere. And last but not least- the kitchen makes great food! I have had an amazing Croque Madame both visits and my friends have raved about their meals!

Food was fab! Only complaint was that our booth was close to the kitchen so our eyes got irritated from someone cutting onions. But really, their brunch menu is awesome!

Trying something new brought us to Park. Food was very good. The waitress had a hard time with getting our drinks on time. Loud for a Tuesday night.

Our experience at PARK did not meet expectations. We arrived for our 11AM reservation and were immediately seated. However, it took over ten minutes for our server to visit our table. I had to ask the hostess to alert our server, and others who were seated after us were served before us. The restaurant was not busy. For most of our visit, the music was awful. It was a lot of 90s music that I had hoped I would never hear again. I appreciate being nostalgic about the 90s and wanting to explore all music genres, but I think something more innocuous would be a better choice for Sunday brunch. Perhaps jazz, classical, or modern alternative. Finally, when I received my food order, my eggs were severely undercooked. I ordered sunny side up eggs, so I recognize that the yolk should be runny, but I believe the whites should solidify. My eggs were completely runny, with the whites being undercooked. My order was corrected, but it was not a pleasant experience.

We love PARK. We visit often for dinner or drinks. We've even stopped by in the early afternoon for drinks. In addition, when family or friends visit us in Cambridge, we take them to PARK. This is why I had to try Sunday brunch. Unfortunately, it was an incredibly disappointing experience, especially when we spent $90 for two people. I will return for drinks and dinner, but I can't say it will be anytime soon.
