    Certainly had an uneven experience w/ our waitress. I brought in a bottle of Chardonnay from a prestigious Mendocino winery & it like she didn’t want to touch it. Never asked if k would like to have an ice bucket to Keep it chilled, I finally had to ask her to please open it for us (she did) but never asked who in our party of 5 was having wine (3 of us), never once poured a single glass to anyone. Never touched the bottle even once after she opened it. This was a $400.00 dinner for 5 including $25 corkage & $65 tip. Should have said something, will reach out to management tomorrow…

    Our server. Vivian, was congenial attentive and helpful and made our dining experience very enjoyable. We were not very hungry and shared appetizers of fried calamari and Carpaccio both were great. We shared salads for our main course and one person had the shirt ribs which were excellent. The Butterscotch Cream dessert was very good as was the 10 years old Dows Tawny port. Overall a very pleasant evening of dining and conversation for four friends.

    We felt rushed. We had an early reservation so I assume they wanted the table for later diners. The food was just ok. Nicely presented, but not exceptional at that price point. Selections were good, but somewhat limited. Great ambiance. Restaurant filled when we left.

    The Park Bistro and Bar has been a long time favorite of our with great service and top notch food. The time was different. the service was mediocre at best and she was seldom seen and seemed pretty uphappy so may be just having a bad day - but. The food was incomplete, my pastrami sandwich was supposed to have a Thousand Island dressing but none was present, the cheese and coleslaw were both missing. The quiche is normally spectacular but our guest and my wife both thought it was well below their standards. The latte after lunch was just steamed milk - no espresso detected. We will certainly go back because our experience has normally been excellent

    Each room has its merits. Nice to eat outside except for traffic noise. The bistro is great for casual dining with the fireplace going. The main dining room is elegant and makes it easy to converse because it's quiet.
