My favorite for a long time for breakfast is Avocado Toast.
Even better after the shut down.
And brunch is always made special by our favorite waitress Jolene.

We at lunch on Christmas Day. The staff was friendly, attentive and efficient. Our water glasses were constantly full. We felt cared for and the food was delightful.

Thought my reservation was for the bistro since it was named that way. Bistro was closed, so led to the main dining room. Prices were outrageous. Thought it was a little underhanded.

Note that if you outside at this restaurant absolute no heaters whatsoever are provided. This would have been nice to know upon booking. We shivered throughout our entire dinner and slow service didn't help.

Wonderful food but was surprised that the service was so slow, especially considering the restaurant was not full. It was our holiday lunch. We would have spent more money had the drinks continued to arrive in a timely manner.

We loved our experience at The Park Bistro and Bar! I made a reservation and we got an adorable table by the window looking into the courtyard. We had mimosas and the Mediterranean Omelette and a side of bacon to share. Our server was super friendly and the food came out right away. Prices are fair and we loved it. Only thing that I would have improved was another table was getting ready to go next to us and their children came and stared at us as we were just getting our food, one child even putting both elbows on the table. Other than asking the parents to handle their children, I do not count this against the restaurant!

Beet salad is the first dish that has excited me since covid. Mixture of cashews, beets, sun-choke spiced chips over a ginger with pickled oranges. Large enough to eb an entree. Can't wait to go again.

Service was not that great. Servers were not very attentive. Took quite a while in between starters and entrées. Entrées were not very good. Portions were quite small. Would not go back.

I enjoyed the short ribs Gf and was so surprised how tender and flavorful and succulent they were....Started with the salad with baby greens, almonds, pomegranate and shaved Parmesan cheese.....GF. Wonderful light flavorful dressing and ample amount to share with my gal friend!
Such a luscious meal and sorbets to finish our dinner...Warm and cozy with the fireplace and sweet quiet ambiance..Thanks for a lovely night out...

The updated menu is very impressive. Our dishes were prepared perfectly. The octopus with Adobo is outstanding. It is a family recipe or the sous chef. The black cod was flavorful. The short ribs were fork tender and delicious, too!

We requested outside seating for our lunch reservation because of Covid. We were seated in a patio area along the parking lot facing the highway! It was very noisy and unpleasant. The food was mediocre, nothing at all special and the coffee was bitter and tasted reheated. The staff were friendly and service was prompt and efficient.
Too bad the atmosphere and food were not up to the high prices.

The food was quite good (we had the scallops, filet mignon, mac&cheese, country greens salad) and the ambience/setting is nice. Try to get a seat by the fireplace if you are going to eat inside. However, the service was rather slow. It took longer than it should for a waiter to take our order. That being said, that wait staff was very nice. We would go again.

I have been going to The Park Bistro for years. Love the decor and service but the quality of the food isn't the same. No French onion soup, which was my favorite. I ordered the potato soup, which I couldn't eat. It might work as wallpaper paste.
