    I had called Park Tavern a handful of times to make a reservation as I heard they had opened back up. I have family in town and thought it would be fun to take them to an old favorite. The number they have listed just brings you straight to a voicemail telling you to book through open table each time so that is what I did. I had a reservation for 5 people last night at 6pm confirmed. We arrived at 6pm to see a dark, dingy, very NOT open restaurant with paper taped to the door saying they are closed and to go to one of their other restaurants. So thanks to a false booking I had 5 hungry out-of-towners stuck at 6pm on a Friday at north beach with no dinner reservations. Beyond frustrating. If they have re-opened they clearly have not gotten it together yet.

    They were not open. So I took a $20 Uber over there and had to find another place to eat at a peak dining hour… Very disappointed as I would not have traveled to North Beach if I wasn’t able to make the reservation. If you’re not going to be open, don’t take reservations

    Small portions. Ordered the pork loin thinking it was the old wood fired grilled pork chop. The loin was small and over cooked. Mussels looked withered.

    Excellent food in a great location! We went for dinner on a Friday night and the service was attentive and impeccable. We had no trouble making a same-day reservation. Ambience was good, and the noise level was sufficient to provide some privacy in conversation without hindering it.

    Really disconcerting dining experience- we haven’t been back since pre pandemic. It seems like all the warmth and vibrancy were removed. The food was the star but the decor and service were just bad. Hard to justify coming back. Why change a winning mix - sure,hiring a seasoned staff is a challenge but others are doing a better job of it. But the marble floor vs the beautiful wood that was there before, was a really poor choice of decor. And servers were MIA during dinner - replaced with “buss boys” actively filling water glasses - even at table with bottled water …at the expense of asking “would you like another glass of wine?” Managers were content standing behind the bar sipping their “water cup” … Dinner was not cheap and left us rather agitated an the ambivalence.

    We are longtime customers of Park Tavern and typically love the restaurant. Unfortunately, our most recent experience was fair at best. The restaurant was not busy, yet service was poor and the meal was very average. We were entertaining for business and were very disappointed.

    The entire experience was wonderful! We had bags with us and the hostess pleasantly took them to the coat closet before seating us. From the must have deviled eggs to the salmon Benedict and polenta cakes the food was phenomenal! Oh and don’t forget the mimosas!!! Winta our waitress and Jeff the manager made our experience so much fun and enjoyable! Can’t wait to return!!

    I ordered shrimp and grits and it was very salty. Also it was my husbands birthday and I told them in advance to bring a dessert in the end but that never happened. I was hoping for better service and attention than that. I come here regularly but something or the other keeps happening with the service.

    Big fan of Park Tavern for what is usually a consistently good experience but this time our server was really not good. He didn’t have any warmth and sort of hovered over us without speaking and disrupted our conversation. Maybe he’s just an awkward person but he came off a bit surly and pushy—it was a really odd, awkward experience and we didn’t like his style.

    Always quality food! Deviled eggs and burger are always a good choice. Moderate noise level and able to enjoy a meal catching up with friends. Service lacked a little this time around- they forgot a dish and felt rushed to leave at the end of the meal.

    Excellent service! Cozy atmosphere, but with enough space to allow diners to move around comfortably and not feel crammed into table seating. Avocado toast was delicious. I had Shrimp and Grits for brunch, and the shrimp was plump, fresh, and well-prepared. The grits are actually polenta and it is all enveloped in a spicy, very tasty and light red sauce. It's on my list of favorite dishes. I recommend Park Tavern for brunch - it's a great experience - exactly what brunch is supposed to be.

    The brunch menu is wonderful. We especially loved the coffee cake, the grapefruit brulee (quite unusual) and the Leek Scramble (which they graciously made for us without the bacon). We can't wait to return to try other things!
