Located in Harvard Square, PARK is a modern neighborhood restaurant/bar designed to suit today’s drinking and dining needs. A place to grab a quick after-work drink or bite, enjoy a leisurely dinner, linger over cocktails, or spend an entire night, PARK offers a variety of experiences that will feel unique depending on which of the four distinct spaces you’re seated. With an eclectic design aesthetic, PARK is stocked with rousing conversation pieces that range from counter-culture artwork from the 1960s to antique book-lined shelves and a trophy case brimming with myriad oddities. Not to be outdone, Executive Chef Corey Steinke brings a spirited sense of interpretation to PARK’s New American menu of homey classics, which are served alongside an internationally-inspired collection of craft cocktails, beer and wine.

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.

Went for Sunday brunch for our Mother’s birthday. Had a great time. Cocktails were fantastic and our server Oisin did a great job helping make it a successful meal and birthday.

Overall great experieance at PARK. One of the best restaurant/bars in Harvard Square. The ambiance is excellent. Really love the area with the bookshelves and sofas to the left of the bar. Makes for a great place to bring friends for drinks and or food! Highly recommended!

Excellent. We have always been pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food at Park. We were there early on NYE and seated away from the bar, so the noise level was moderate. Lobster and crab dip was great, clam chowder was the best ever (I don't usually like it), and the salmon with parsnips and brussel sprouts was fabulous. I can always find something without gluten or much gluten. We'll be back!

Sunday Brunch/Lunch with children and grandparents on New Year's Eve before a show at the ART. Very quiet due to Harvard's school break and extremely cold weather. PARK was nearly empty, so we had a nice room with a fireplace nearly to ourselves. The ambiance (jazzy music) and decor (post-industrial, leather seating) are nice. The brunch food - we almost all ordered Eggs Benedict - were good and cooked correctly, but nothing to write home about. Service was good enough, if a bit slow and not totally efficient. Bloody Marys were reportedly good, although I didn't taste one. I'd recommend to singles, couples, or a group without kids when school (or summer) is in session, as it is probably busier and noisier. In our visit, PARK was perfectly pleasant, and I'll be headed back again for a drink or lunch sometime.

I went here for a Sunday brunch with friends, and loved how it wasn’t too crowded. The food and ambiance were great, and there was no stress involved with getting a table
