This was my second visit to Park's Edge Bar & Kitchen. I brought two friends with me. They loved the ambience.
The service was good, and every effort was made to ensure we were happy with our order.
I had plantain balls with mango salsa, followed by jerk lamp chops with pea puree, roasted parsnips and potatoes. My meal culminated with Eton mess.
I throughly enjoyed my meal and would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy Caribbean influenced dishes served in a beautiful setting.

Really overpriced. Could pay the same for Michelin star standard. Service average, a shame because it has good potential.

Dear PaulaP, While you haven't responded to my enquiry about your points of service, I confirm that I've reviewed your service with the team to ascertain what, if anything really spoiled your service and how they might improve. Respectfully, we do not agree the menu was over-priced. 4 courses, a glass of fizz with luxury ingredients and a Michelin trained chef for £55 was in no way excessive and we received many positive comments. Hope you'll come again, Cece Gen Mngr

The food was lovely, however I though it was way over priced I don’t think you can justify charging that amount, the waitresses were friendly but quite a lot of the food was getting mixed up with different tables and courses coming out at the wrong time. We went on Valentine’s night and it was a set menu so didn’t understand why there were so many mishaps. Like I said the food was lovely but too overpriced., for that reason I wouldn’t recommend to a friend.

Food was fantastic. However, service was appalling. We waited 40 minutes for someone to offer us some drinks and after finally being able to order then still waited a further 20 minutes to receive a warm bottle of white wine. Only then were we told they had sold out and hasn’t put any more in the fridge. We then had to order something else we didn’t want and not that I would expect it but it wasn’t offered as complimentary despite now waiting an hour. When the bill came a 12.5% charge was added (standard) but no apology or offer to remove. Shame as great food and local to us but we won’t be going back again!

Hi Anonymous, We are sorry for overlooking your drinks on a busy evening. I know the team on the night tried hard to put the issue right and to give you a pleasant experience. Service charge is discretionary and at no point were we aware that you were so unhappy as our server asked if everything was ok with your meal. Refusing to come back to an establishing restaurant based on one experience is drastic in our view - perhaps you'll come again; we hope so. Best wishes, Gen Mngr

Have been there 5 times now.

The music -jazzy but not too hard to follow- matches so well with the classy but not too formal local atmosphere.
Food was good and the chef also went all her/his way to change it once knowing that I’m allergic to mushrooms

Service is really good and makes you feels welcome.
Wine list is not exceptionally broad, but they change it seasonally and today we tried a new English Pinot which really surprised us (in a good way!!)

We will definitely come back again!!!

Nice ambience and lovely setting,
A little overpriced, I had a sticky toffee pudding which was lovely but a very small portion for the price I paid.

Meal was great and cooked to perfection so compliments to the chef

It was nice just overpriced is my comment,

Waiter was a tad scatty and forgot to bring our drinks and wine but was nice enough ( maybe his first day)

Thank you for the review and sorry to hear that we weren't quite up to a 4 or 5 star on this occasion. Our desserts are portioned equally and we have not found them to be small in the past, however do let us know when you are booking in again and we will be sure to rectify your expectations as best we can.

We love this place and come here often. We love the decor, the staff enthusiasm and the chef's ambition. My lamb rump on Saturday was cooked tog perfection. We can't understand why lesser establishments nearby always seem to be more popular, this is by far and away the best eatery for over a mile in any direction. Only two gripes. Hiver beer is no longer on the menu and they are not great at bringing your cocktails and aperitifs ahead of your first course.

Parks Edge must serve the best food in Herne Hill which is filled with hood retsaurants. The British cuisine with a twist is truly unique and worth tasting. Just a 2 minute walk outside of the station area takes you to perfect service, beautiful atmosphere and exceptional food. Soo much more atmosphere and better food than some of the more traditional places like llewelyns and cafe provencal which are popular. Try it, you won't regret it

The starting point is that from arrival to the food appearing took 90mins. These were not complex dishes and this was just not good enough. We were on the point of walking out when the food finally arrived. There was a staff problem the bar man was missing so a key member of staff was devoted entirely to making cocktails. These things happen in restaurants. But the way to handle this is to:
1. notice that customers are waiting a long time; 2 apologise well in advance of 90 mins and warn them that there will be a further delay; 3 offer a free drink and/or something to nibble on (and crisps just don't do it!) . We were offered an apology and the service charge was removed. The food was good; the staff charming. But it was chaotic and did not make for a pleasant relaxing evening.

**Update: Claudia the GM has been in touch (called me personally) and has apologised for the issue we had on Sunday with the restaurant being overwhelmed by a large party (resulting in their lunch menu being delayed by an hour without warning). I have been assured that this is not reflective of their usual standard/service and despite the fact we ended up going elsewhere to eat this time as we wanted something more substantive than brunch, I have been so impressed by the way this was handled that I would definitely give them a second chance in the future.
3* as we never got to try the food and as a result of the initial inconvenience/handling of the situation; if the menu/photos/her dedication to customers is anything to go by though, I have no doubt it'll be a 5* review next time we visit. I've always said the true measure of a person/business is not always needing to be perfect, but how they make up for the times they are not. Was it a good experience Sunday, no; but I'm pleasantly surprised at how well it's been handled since.

After having a very satisfying dinner, the ambiance had me feeling so comfortable it was hard to leave. I opted for their vegetarian dish, stuffed red pepper, it was very good and you can't resist their desserts.

We had a great time dining at Park's Edge - the burger was delicious and the torched sea bass bursting with interesting flavours. The service was impeccable and the interior very interestingly designed. What made our dinner even more enjoyable was the lack of noisy loudspeakers blasting out music. The ambiance was pleasantly chatty and we were able to enjoy conversation as the music was unobtrusive. We shall look forward to returning again soon.

The food was, on the whole, very good. (The torched sea bass was delicious.) But the service was unacceptably slow. We had booked for 8pm and arrived very shortly after 8. No trace of our food for over 1 hour. We were warned by the waitress that service would be slow - but 1 hour is far too long to wait (even when we were given complimentary olives after about 45 minutes.) We did not dare order a sweet having observed people at the next table apparently waiting for the best part of an hour after their main course before their sweets appeared.

We must have had a random night where it was a complete balls up but this was probably one of the worst restaurant visits I’ve had.

The food was mediocre, although the restaurant was empty bar one or two other people the food took an absolute age to arrive and then when it did arrive it was cold.

The fire alarm went off half way through our meal and was going for at least 10-15 minutes as the staff struggled to work out how to turn it off. All of the diners were sitting the awkwardly smiling though think they would like to leave but can’t as we haven’t paid our bill.

Then when we came to leave the bill was unbelievably expensive so much so the waitress/stuff member who gave it to us looks visibly embarrassed as she handed it to us and the saw us recoil in shock. I really don’t mind an expensive bill if the meal/experience was worth it but it was a pathetic offering and all three of us walked out of there gob smacked at what had just gone down.

It’s safe to say that none of us will be going there again and we definitely won’t be recommending to any friends.
