Pretty outdoor patio but no wonder I could get a Saturday night reservation easily two days earlier: slow, forgetful service and mediocre food. Sorry to see a long-time establishment with previous stellar reputation as such a low point.

The Park Bistro was great. But making the reservation through Open Table was poor. I specified that the dinner was for our anniversary, but apparently Open Table did not tell the Park Bistro as we got no acknowledgement. In the past we have made reservations directly with the Park Bistro and they always did something a little special for us. We won't be using Open Table again.

We had an uneven experience. The appetizers were excellent, particularly the beet salad. Both the salmon and the filet mignon were excellent. But the fish and chips were virtually inedible. The fish was rockhard. One of the pieces could not even be cut with a knife. To their credit, we were not charged for the dish. For dessert we had an excellent bread pudding and what was easily the worst crème brûlée we have ever tasted. It was completely bland and watery. We have dined here several times before and always had excellent experiences and were disappointed at the food shortcomings.

Very limited menu; "rare" burger came well done; fish & chips fish was dry and tough. Guess this explains why it was virtually empty.

Restaurants/eateries are just opening up. Employees are very difficult to find! NO DOUBT the Chef in-kitchen is overtaxed BUT...food choice was limited, attention to detail not on the plate. The saving-grace to it all was our waitress Kim...great personality!
Probably won't be dining here again.

There was no food service of any kind fro Sunday afternoon through Tuesday night. This was not disclosed until check in on Sunday afternoon. Hotel could have had a cantering company set up a coffee, juice, breakfast area on those days. Plus the front desk representative were somewhat rude.

This is a very pretty spot but it took a very long time to get the food and $23 for a salad that was almost all Romaine lettuce with salmon, well seasoned salmon, seemed a bit much.

Kim was the best server, always read our minds when something was needed or missing. She was funny, professional and spot on. We sat in the booth in the main dining room, our favorite spot. Had the chicken the salmon the steak and Caesar with chicken. All entrees were perfect. Started with the deviled eggs (not your Midwest egg), the mezzo and the cheese. Perfect for 4 people. Ended with the sorbet trio, and on a 100° night it was great!

I made reservations for four for the dining room and was told when we got there that the dining room was too busy so we’ve got put in the bar at a table. This was a very special occasion and I was very disappointed. Two out of the four meals were good. My husband had asked for a rare steak and got medium well and he’s not one to return things so he ate it. My son-in-law ordered the pasta rabbit dish on the wait person’s recommendation and said it was very bland. On the other hand my salmon with grilled asparagus was fantastic. And my daughter-in-law who likes medium well done meat was very happy with her steak. We ordered two Caesar salad’s and split them but they were nothing to write home about. I am one who really likes to have anchovies on a Caesar salad and they were nowhere in sight.

Lemon Drop not iced or frosted; rim sugar only on 1/4th of glass and sloppily added; 3 pieces of baguette with cheese appetizer when 2 people; seated by a less than welcoming hostess; and astoundingly small menu- few choices; seated in the bar area when requested dining area when reservations made. Used to be a favorite place to dine, now passing fair.

We were greeted warmly and seated at a table for 2 which had no table settings, flowers or anything on them. Because of the pandemic and only 50% capacity, the place didn't have much ambiance. It was also quiet for the same reason. Service was very nice and and the food was good.
I've been to this restaurant before and it was much nicer in "pre-pandemic" times.

Give the Park Bistro a miss for a few months until the kitchen staff finds its feet after the COVID-19 lock down. The batter on my fish & chips was thick and soggy and my wife's chicken was tasteless. On a positive note our waiter was excellent and they didn't charge us for the tasteless chicken.
