Park Tavern Ratings and Reviews
Met up friends from out of state, made a reservation and they were more than accommodating as some of our guests were late to arrive. Their cocktails were delicious, and it was a great way to begin our brunch! We heard nothing but great things throughout our meal! We loved it and will be returning.
Park Tavern is a neighborhood gem! I make sure I take out-of-town visitors here for brunch. You can't beat the sidewalk seating across from Washington Square Park! And the staff? The staff is consistently warm, accommodating and efficient. It's one of my favorite places to brunch in the City! It's the total experience!
I really wanted to like this place. The reviews were high when I searched for brunch, so I went for it. The avocado toast was delicious! It had a bit of chili powder and sea salt and was very tasty. I also ordered the cast iron baked farm eggs, and here is where it went downhill. I receive this dish and realize I have to use a fork (not just the bread, which comes with it) to scoop up some of the kale/cheese/egg mixture. After a few bites, I realize I'm afraid to take another bite because it might be completely cold. At the same time, I happen to see two other people also get that dish and it is steaming hot with gooey cheese consistency, and realize my dish is not even lukewarm. I tell the waitress, who is very apologetic, about this and get another dish a few minutes later. The man who brought it in made sure to mention to me that its still sizzling (it was). I was excited to enjoy this dish again (it came recommended in my search), when I realized the eggs are completely fully cooked! Again, a couple more people around me are scooping into their runny eggs and gooey cheese while I'm trying to get some liquid in mine. So disappointing! Its so sad because the flavors were there, and were really good! The wait staff was great, and service was fast, but the execution of my dish specifically just failed. I wont be recommending this place.
Everything was great except for the duck, which was tough and “nugget-like.” It was supposed to be medium rare. It was barely cuttable. But we did get free champagne and great velvet cake because it was my 60th birthday, which I only told them when I arrived. This is my second time here, and I will be back, but I won’t order the duck again.
Great ambiance and service but way overpriced for overall mediocre food. Sides of carrots and Brussels sprouts and my main charbroiled trout was fine, but the sides of beets were awful, drinks (cocktails) were not good, and the bass main course was not appealing to either of us. Also charged for club sodas. Desserts were underwhelming. Wouldn’t have been so disappointed if it didn’t come out to nearly a $200 meal.
Second visit to Park Tavern and again-great. Early dinner with friends and the restaurant was not crowded..in fact, it was quiet on a Thursday evening. Drinks at the bar were delicious and our food at the table also. We love the lemon chips and might order double next time. Our burgers and salads were the perfect comfort good on an incredible weather night in North Beach. We will be back.
Park Tavern was lovely. I think their burgers paired with Bordeaux wines were a bit expensive, but it costs a lot to operate in San Francisco, of course. I wasn't thrilled with the shredded lettuce that came with my burger (I wasn't able to eat a bun), and it was pretty rare for medium rare, but it was tasty meat.
I love everything about this restaurant and have for years. It's always consistent accros the board from food to service to ambiance. I also have a small service dog and he joins me every time without question. I always give a heads up prior to arriving so they know it's me and that my dog will be with me. Makes for a smooth greeting an no unexpected questions. Brunch and dinner always on my list and as long as the all around goodness continues I'll be dining at Park Tavern!
We have been to Park Tavern half a dozen times and tonight was definitely an off night. We were seated before our reservation - a plus. We ordered our wine and an appetizer. Wine finally came and lemon chips arrived - cold - not freshly cooked. Ordered dinner and about an hour later it finally arrived. Same situation for the table next to us. Food was just okay. Lots of other restaurants to spend $150 on a meal and really enjoy it. Won't be back.
We were early and needed up sitting at the bar. My husband went to the restroom and I sat there for some time and not one of the 3 bartenders even acknowledge me. My husband came back and still no one greeted us. Finally my husband asked for service and the bar tender wasn’t very friendly. The vibe there was awful. We ended up leaving. and I didn’t get my drink I ordered until we asked for it again. Not going back.
We were seated in a dark area by a wall.
We ordered and within three minutes our food was delivered. Could NOT have been prepared when we ordered because the eggs were cooked not runny. It must have been sitting around???
The waitress wanted to pick up while one of us was eating. Dirty dishes cleared and check brought. We were not asked if we wanted dessert or coffee or tea.
We had great anticipation and were quite disappointed.
This place had the feel of a well run establishment but, I think the size and, perhaps the volume lead to a factory feel and a lack of passion in the waitstaff. The man who waited on us barely spoke, rarely made eye contact and appeared as though a part of his soul had died recently.
The food was subpar at best. The presentation was lovely but, the flavors were lackluster and imaginative.
Stand in line across the street if you want to enjoy your meal.
I was incredibly disappointed with Park Tavern. It had come recommended by two people and the reviews were good. My pork chop was so awful I did not eat all of it. The other 3 diners had meals that were good not great. I did not want to make a scene so I quietly let our server know there was a problem with the chop. He offered me another entre but by then it was too late. We were not charged for the entre. There are so many fantastic restaurants in San Francisco that I advise you to choose one of them not Park Tavern. Too bad too because I liked the ambiance and the staff were nice.
After three consecutive and declining visits over the past 2 years, I'm done. The elegant, but punchy bistro quality has come and gone in the masses and we're left with yet another overpriced new-american, farm-to-table, dining factory in North Beach. My steak was overcooked, the creamed kale a disgusting fried mess, the butter was a warmed puck from the refrigerator. As they try to keep the profits up, all the good chefs and staff have come and gone, and left behind the recipes for interpretation and eventual cost cutting. Who cares about quality, people keep coming!
