    Good and drinks are always great but service is always lacking every time we go. We always wait wait to long to get service and never end up getting a second drink even thought we want want due to the waiting. If they can change this it could be one of best spots in Columbia.

    Maybe our server Megan was having an off night but we only saw her at the beginning and then to bring our check. I had to go find the waiters station to grab catchup, and when the charcuterie plate came out with missing items I never got to tell anyone. Speaking of the plate, it was missing all the accoutrements listed on the menu, and had a lot of lunch meat on it (I’m not kidding!) - my filet had certainly been sitting in the window too long and had a funky taste on the outside. This is my third time eating here and in previous visits had different experiences, so I hope this was a fluke. Honestly though I’m not sure whether I’ll give it another shot or not.

    Excellent night at Park. New place with a modern decor. Food was great. I couldn't get enough of the tender flavorful filet, and my wife raved about the seasme ahi tuna. Booth seating was comfortable and noise level was low. Would go back again to try more.

    Excellent food! OK service - do understand as restaurant was very busy. Poor seating - a semicircular sofa for 2 was used to seat 3 - I was sitting where the 2 pieces joined. DO not do that please - you have a person sitting uncomfortably for 2 hours.

    We went to Park hoping for a nice, new experience. It advertises as tapas, has a modern look, and is located in a nice area, and is the only restaurant that far south in Columbia. Unfortunately, it serves some pretty worn out fare. The atmosphere is modern, but lacks color and warmth. Not relaxing and no real ambience. Seems more like a sports bar atmosphere. Between concrete floors, little ornamentation, and nothing to dampen sound, it seems pretty sterile. Appetizers and drinks were okay, though we had pomme frites with garlic aioli and avoided the Bulgogi beef. Hard to mess up fries. Entrees were pretty standard fare. They seem to think their sriracha aioli will make any dish unique and worth the price. My wife's salmon was not edible. Coconut crust was overtoasted and the fish was not anything like fresh. I know, this is Missouri, but we've not had anything this bad before. When the waiter saw that my wife had two bites only and was told it was not good, other than an apology and that he was not responsible, there was no effort to make up for a bad dish. On to desserts, and I would recommend going somewhere else. Two cheesecakes made by a suppliers. Not made in house. How hard is it to make a brownie or gooey butter cake? Get a gallon of ice cream and a can of Miracle Whip, for Pete's sake! So, no we do not recommend Park, and will not be going back. I'd rather go to Wendy's.

    We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Our table was in a quiet corner which was appreciated by these hard of hearing seniors. Server, Cole, greeted us quickly and was attentive throughout. Our filet and ribeye were perfect. Steamed broccoli was a little cool but not over cooked so was able to let the coolness pass.

    I have been coming to Park Restaurant starting with the open house before you even opened. I believe that must be five years or so now. I’ve been disappointed the last couple visits because the edamame appetizer has been taken off the menu. Tonight I discovered by pork porterhouse is no longer a part of the menu but there was a special tonight which was pork porterhouse but I preferred tuna tonight. It’s a great restaurant and as far as I’m concerned the best one in town because of the varied and diverse menu and the proximity to my home which is just across Discovery Parkway down Ponderosa 1/2 mi. Also like the take out potion as I call call leaving U Hospital and my meal ready for pick up within 20-30 minutes. That’s fantastic W. Kirt Nichols, MD

    Our steaks were cooked to perfection. (my wife and I). Were there to celebrate our friend's 76 th birthday. He reluctantly tried the coconut salmon at the encouragement the wait staff. He proved to be a big hit. Our check was considerable less than what would have been at CC's or Chris McDs'

    I DO NOT recommend eating here. Everything is very overpriced ($3 for a side of lettuce for my burger) and is not good. Park thinks it is a fine dining restaurant, but is very far from it.

    Came for an item featured on the website, they stopped selling the dish I wanted a week prior. It was the only vegetarian entree that they offered and suddenly now there were no vegetarian options. No dessert either except icecream and who wants icecream when it’s 40 degrees out. Disappointing experience.

    The food and drinks were good, however, the parm frites appetizer was disappointing. I would not suggest that appetizer to future guests unless they want to get that instead of fries as a side. The parm frites were literally just fries, with some crumbled Parmesan that tasted like nothing, and a dipping sauce on the side. It would be a great appetizer to share with everyone instead of paying $4 a piece for a side of fries. My mother got the Gimlet and the Spicy Margarita with jalapeño. She enjoyed the latter more but she’d get both again. She got the Philly and loved it. The Chicken Genovese is a must for pesto lovers, mine was great. My boyfriend got the Patch Work and liked it as well. He previously got the Californian Chicken Sandwich and stated that while it was a hard choice, he would get the sandwich again instead.

    The food was pretty good for the price. Drinks below average. Very disappointed to make a reservation for two only to be told there are only high tops available. Even more disappointed to be set at a high top that was in view of a booth for two and a more intimate table for two, both empty that were filled 5 and 10 minutes later. Ok place for a group (maybe) or a casual dinner, not good for a date.

    The filet was perfect and so was the service. It ended there. The silverware and wine glasses were not clean or if they were, they had bad water stains. The spinach salad was bland and had zero flavor. They had many desert on the menu, but only one available. This was the icing on the cake as it was one of the reasons we drove out of our way to try the restaurant. Also, the patio looks over a parking lot at Marriott hotel. I will not go here again.
