About Park Tavern
With an exciting mix of vintage fixtures, comfortable furnishings, and handsome textures, Park Tavern is an elegant spin on a North Beach neighborhood classic. Owner Anna Weinberg and designer Kendra Nicholas of Park Interiors collaborated to divide the room into unique, dedicated spaces -- the handsome marble bar, the terra cotta floored cafe with windows that open onto the patio facing Washington Park, the comfortable dining room with tufted leather banquettes, and an open kitchen with a chef’s counter.
Park Tavern will showcase Chef Partner Jennifer Puccio's talents with delicious American bistro classics and emphasize seafood from a wood burning oven. Expect boldly flavored dishes that you'll want to eat several times a week.
Serving up classic cocktails with the candor and character of an old friend, you won't find any overly fancy mixology here. But when it comes to wines, you find something for everyone!

Park Tavern Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant prides itself on innovative cuisine and delivers, but unfortunately - nothing I could enjoy. 99% of the dishes on the menu were spicy or with pork, neither of which work for me. The only vegetable dishes that didn't have chili or pepper were overly sweet yams with "meringue" (marshmallows) which I had to send back and a lemon chip dish that was dried lemon slices with a burrata that was naturally delicious. My "Ed's Negroni" was heart attack sweet but the regular gin and tonic was delicious. They do not serve bread so I left there hungry which didn't seem to concern our server. It is a busy, noisy, trendy spot good for big groups and those seeking an upscale North Beach experience just off of Washington Square. The evening was saved by our climbing up (and down) the gorgeous, literally breath-taking Filbert Steps.
Always great atmosphere at Park Tavern, and good food. The only thing that prevents me from giving it 5 stars overall is the sort of "service with attitude" - starting with the hostess stand, they sort of make you feel like you're lucky to have a reservation. Our waiter seemed completely indifferent to giving suggestions or seeing how things were going - asked us how everything tasted when we were 80% through the meal. He had a helper bring us our check after plates were cleared without asking about coffee or anything else. Again, I guess we're supposed to be impressed to be there. There are LOTS of great restaurants in SF so people do have a choice. I will probably wait to go back, even though I love the location, atmosphere and food.
Love this place! Whether you are celebrating something or just want to go out with friends.
This place is like coming home! The service is fantastic --Jason was on point all night -- very attentive without being an"interrupter" -- you know what I mean! They treat you like you come every night --I love that about this place. The food is creative and tasty, but recognizable! Who wants to guess what you are being served when the menu doesn't look like the plate you just got! We loved it - we had steaks and they were cooked to perfection. Go! You will love it too.
Oh, my. Probably had the pleasure of eating at PT for close to 10 times over the years. We thought so much of it that we had our son's birthday dinner there. The experience went off the rails right away. PT was having "an event" that night. Never a good situation for the other customers. Seated 40 minutes late. Left unattended for long stretches. Four entrees: Chicken was incinerated, duck breast..more raw than medium rare, Spanish octopus was two tentacles that were like a leather rope and finally the halibut..damn good. If we hadn't been seating there for two hrs we would have sent this collective train wreck back. 7:15 reservation..got out of there at 10:15. Expensive negative B-Day experience. Company was great but I'd have to have some compelling reason to try Park Tavern again.
Unfortunately the dinner was not that good.
They tried their best to seat us where it was not noisy . So at least we could have a conversation without yelling . People seem to like to shout these days at dinner or laugh too loud.
Appetizer : Devils on horseback - shrimp wrapped in bacon with cream sauce . Pretty tasty !
My companions halibut was nicely done.
My duck breast was too busy of a plate. Apart from 2 breasts there was cauliflower,kohlrabi both marinated with something - very strange . Creamy polenta , fried greens on top and several spoonfuls of a red sauce/puree that must have been the red cabbage, very strange also and not that tasty . Unfortunately the dish did not agree with me and I was feeling very uncomfortable and had problems the next morning.
Had not been in a while but it was not as good as I remembered
I was excited to go here after reading about it on a best of brunch list, however I found the food to be average and the service to be subpar at best. After being seated, we were not helped or brought water for 15 mins, and had to ask the hostess to send someone over. I ordered the cast iron eggs, but the eggs were overcooked and dry, and the cheese was not at all melted. A pair of women next to me both ordered the eggs as well, however one came out looking perfect - runny eggs, gooey cheese - while the other came out looking very dry like mine. If my dish had been done correctly, I'm sure it would have been great, but unfortunately the food was very inconsistent.
We had a girls get together overnight. Brunch was park tavern the next day. It was perfect. The service was very slow and forgetful. I wondered if they were short staffed that day. But there were staff that seemed unoccupied with attendance at a table, so I do not really know. 15 min for coffee. No refill.
Great restaurant frequented by locals with a varied menu and great vibe. Food was excellent and portion sizes good. Can be a little loud because of the hard surfaces, but that just adds to the restaurant’s vibrancy. We definitely will go back when we are in SF next.
This is the only bar I've been to outside of London that charges for the mix in addition to the liquor. A gin gimlet was $14 for the gin and an additional $2 for the lime juice.
What a ripoff, at least have the integrity to tell customers that the drinks are expensive with out this sneaky add on. Additionally, when asked what gin my wife wanted in her gimlet (I was not present) she said she didn't know and they poured Hendricks at $16 (plus the lime juice) when Beefeaters was in the well. I'm a local and will not be back to this "tourist trap".
We ordered the chicken and the burger. The chicken was delicious but the burger was not good. We ordered it medium and it tasted like very burnt barbecue and the meat patty was pretty thin. Service was okay. When the restaurant got busy it was hard to track down our server. Also, he was not the most personable.
