Service was quick. Food was excellent. The beef bulgulgi Street taco’s were delicious. I can see this becoming a regular spot for us.

1st Timer. Great experience! When you go ask for Marlo, he is an excellent server. We sat outside, it was great. Filet was cooked perfect. Veggies were not over-cooked and very tasty. Highly recommend!

They were completely shut down! I had this reservation and when we showed up they were completely closed with no indication of what happened or why or how long. No closed sign, just dark and no cars!

The food was very good and the service was good. We would have been more comfortable if our server had been wearing a mask to minimize the risk of spreading the Covid-19 virus.

Expensive with everything being a la cart. My husband asked for a dinner salad as a side salad and it was $6. That seems a lot for a side salad. Food is good. Only one employee was waring a mask, so won't be back for that reason. Will be going to restaurants who have their servers wearing masks.

A mix of Korean and American. Lots of tempting dishes. Enjoyed everything we ordered, but the Korean nachos were far and away my favorite. Wonton nachos can get really greasy, but these were perfect. Clean, quiet, nice atmosphere.

The ambiance was nice and there was a live band that was pretty good. The service was pretty good, but the friendliness of our server seemed to wax and wane - she seemed busy and a little overwhelmed. At one point she absconded with my napkin and I had to ask for another one. No big deal.

As far as the food, my wife and I both ordered off of the special Valentine's Day menu. She got the scallops and I got the filet with a crab-bearnaise sauce. We started with onion rings. First of all, the onion rings were phenomenal. Hot and delicious with flavorful seasoning and a great spicy dipping sauce. My wife's scallops were also very tasty, with a bit of a smoky flavor. The big disappointment of the night was the filet. First of all, it was 35 dollars, which I'm willing to spend for a really good steak, but it didn't seem like very much care went into the selection of the meat or the preparation here. The meat itself was not very flavorful and was cooked to an unpleasantly chewy rare rather than the medium rare that I requested. To make matters much worse, the "crab-bearnaise" sauce was just totally off with the predominant flavor being that fishy taste that people use to distinguish good fish dishes from bad ones. The sauce was absolutely smothered all over the steak. It was not visually appetizing or particularly tasty. I really want to like Park, and may try it again, but I doubt I would order their steak again.

I felt that the overall atmosphere was amazing. It was very clean and modern on the inside, and was decorated with roses for valentines day. The food was moderately priced and a la carte...ex. my thai chicken was around $10 and then it was $3 for a side. It is decent size food as well! My boyfriend and I split the spinach dip and it was to die for. Loved the cocktails and our waiter was so friendly and helpful. Will definitely be coming here again!

Had the scallops over wild rice. Scallops were way too salty. The rice was really undercooked; it was crunchy! Left hungry. Paid way too much money ($90) for two people to leave her hungry. Won’t be back.

Absolutely excellent experience, from opening the door through walking out.
Aaron our waiter was spot on, and the entrees were excellent.
I have already told friends and family of the Park and look forward to going again in the near future.

I have been here several times. Food is hit or miss. Service varies also. On this visit I had the Thai chicken which was very boring. Basically just a plain chicken breast with a little sauce. The restaurant is beautiful and designed well. They just need to fire the chef and get someone who can create meals that match the restaurant design.

This place has such potential. But virtually every time we go, we have a pretty average experience. We went two nights ago and from the time we ordered it took 45 minutes just to get a few appetizers. This was also the first time I’ve ever sent a plate back to the kitchen. We ordered short ribs and they were, frankly a ripoff. Probably about 3-4 ounces of meat slices that were way over cooked. I think we will wait awhile before going back in hope that get their kitchen and FOH service turned around. It we’re rooting for the place. It really does have a lot of potential.

Food was mediocre at best. They shouldn’t do brunch if they can’t do it well. Monkey bread came raw in the middle. Waffle was hard and overcooked. They can’t poach eggs. Only items that were decent were the ones they also serve on their lunch menu. Donuts were the only really good part.

Great experience overall. Food and drinks were good. Only downfall was when I looked at the rim of my water glass when I was about to leave. It had Lipstick smudge marks and residue all over the rim of the glass... Kind of made the food not settle so well after seeing that.

Meh. Where to begin? BBQ chicken flatbread was on a pita, so there was no thin, crispy crunch you associate with a flatbread. The steaks my dining companions ordered looked anemic. One was overdone. While it was being replaced, he was just left with his sides, so enjoying his entire meal was out of the question. My other friend and I had the coconut salmon. His looked like a classic piece of salmon, while mine was flat like a fillet of, let’s say, walleye. The flavor of the coconut was totally cooked out. Pretty sad when the sides ($3 each) were the star. For our trouble with the steak, nothing was offered by the waiter or manager (who brought the properly cooked steak to the table) to be taken off the tab. Quality control, average service and not getting value in what you paid (too much) for. Yup, that’s 3 strikes.

Park is a great restaurant! We had great service and the food was great. My favorite part of the experience was how knowledgeable the server was. He was even able to give a suggestion for a non-alcoholic drink because I am. Another bonus was being able to pay for your food at this and not have to wait for the check or your card. Overall great experience!
