    My only complaint is that it took a long time for our dinner to be served. But since the food was delicious, if that's the trade off (taking longer to prepare), then I'm OK with that. But if it was some other reason, like forgetting about our order, etc. then that would not be acceptable.

    Paige is AMAZING. Burger was just OK last night. I really wish they bring the all day menu back. I miss the French Dip and the Heff (Rueben with Bleu cheese). If it weren't for Paige it would be average

    We arrived before our spa treatment and enjoyed ourselves a beverage. And after our treatment we went for a late lunch and the food , drinks and service was wonderful. Maxwell , the bartender was very helpful and attentive. I’ve been several time and will definitely be back.

    Snooty hostess with an attitude…beyond rude! Had reservations for brunch for our friends birthday. Asked to be seated in cozy bar area…hostess said they hadn’t served brunch there for last 4 years, though we had been seated there twice in the last year. Oh well, we waited along with six other parties, two left after a while. After we were seated our poor waiter said we had to get the order in immediately as the kitchen closed at 10:30…wow, we had a 10:00 and barely got our order in. He was the only waiter for the entire dining room and seemed totally frazzled so can’t fault his bad attitude. Weird to offer brunch on a weekend and have it end at 10:30. Not good. Food was OK but not hot. Really it is obvious that the restaurant only caters to hotel guests who don’t know there are so many wonderful options nearby. We will not return after having this experience.

    We enjoyed our late lunch leading up to the 2024 Pliny the Younger at the Park tasting. Shared the deviled eggs, I had the crabcakes & my dining mate had the grilled cheese & tomato soup. We enjoyed everything & was amazed how Krissia not only took care of us but pretty much the entire diningroom...bar included. Had been a while since we dined here so will be back.

    Went to dinner there in Valentine’s Day when I arrived I was told that I had no reservations after receiving confirmation. Waited 20 mins for a table after being seated we got water n then they left us for another 20 mins. Came and got the drink order left us another 20 mins. Out of a four course menu we only received 2 items salads an soup. The portions were so small it felt like we weren’t even eating anything. It was hard finding our waiters and management finally came over at around 930pm to apologize about the wait for the food and we never found out what happened. I was given 3  complementary drinks but nothing to eat while waiting, and the drinks were given to us so slowly we stopped wanting them. It’s now 945pm with no food, we waited until 10pm without receiving any updates or the food is self and we got seated at 830pm. Told the manager we needed to leave and he took care of our meal and right when we said that our food was ready after all of that we almost didn’t want it but we took it anyway. Overall won’t be come back EVER!!!

    We went to The Park Bistro for Valentine's Day Dinner. The server was friendly enough and apologetic about the long waits for our Prix Fixe meal. Needless to say, I don't think we'll be back for dinner. By the way, this place says that plant based options are available but, the kitchen didn't have much to offer much in dishes.

    Valentines Day dinner. You want to make it special, by going to a special place. We’ll, DON’T go here! The service was horrible. It was a 5 course prix fixe menu. We waited 45 minutes between courses. Complaining only got an extra glass of wine. Either they weren’t ready for a crowd or they don’t mind ruining a special night. The food was also underwhelming.

    From the time we sat at the bar to have cocktails before dinner, we experienced outstanding service, especially since one of the patrons was nice enough to give us her seat at the bar. Then we were escorted to the dining room, and I was a bit uncomfortable in the table because I’m short and the waitress suggested we move to a booth it was just wonderful. the food was outstanding best pork chops I ever had great evening. My advice is to go & enjoy for yourself.

    We are regular diners at the Bistro and were disappointed with the slow service. The food was excellent but the menu has not changed in years. Unfortunately they’ve declined over time. It’s time for us to move on and try other great restaurants in Lafayette.

    One of the worst Caesar salads I’ve ever had. No anchovy taste at all. Ton of lettuce but very bland dressing. Very little cheese. Two of us had it and finally sent it back after trying to doctor it with lemon and pepper Good Rueben French onion soup not as good as I remembered. Manager was extremely welcoming and nice Another friend said Jacks had a much better clubhouse sandwich than the one here. Nice booth. Everyone was really nice and accommodating

    We were very happy and surprised of this restaurant being in a hotel. The staff was just absolutely friendly especially Kim our server. My husband‘s martini drink had too much vermouth and she was kind enough to bring over some additional vodka. The short rib, dinner and halibut were delicious. Don’t be fooled that this restaurant is located in a hotel. It is very very nice. You will be pleasantly surprised.

    Nice lunch with my sister and Dad, we were seated in a booth. My dad really enjoyed his Ruben sandwich. Server brought us a second round of Arnold Palmers without us asking (and we didn't get charged.) One downside - it always takes a long time to get the check, we always have to ask for it.

    French onion soup had minimal amount of cheese. Service was painfully slow .

    V poor options for vegetarians. Server had too many tables to look after so service was slow despite her doing her best. For those with a ‘regular’ diet there were many tasty looking dishes available

    I had the butternut squash and farro salad but I did not like how they prepared the butternut squash as it was thin and al dente. IMHO butternut squash should be soft. I like how it used to come on the salad where they were soft pieces. Other than that, it was tasty.

    It’s nice to sit in the fireplace room, just enough activity but still quiet. Service was excellent and efficient. Food was great, park burger not to be underestimated. Always a reliable place to eat and a pretty diverse menu.

    This neighborhood gem is a must, whether you choose a table in the Bistro by the fire where you can watch the game on the TV above the bar, or the light-filled dining room. The food is artfully presented and delicious.

    Outstanding and attentive service. Quiet table in a semi-private booth (which I had requested). The salad with manchego is superb. Short-ribs were a generous portion...so much we had to take half home. The french onion soup is outstanding. The dessert options fell a wee bit flat, but the rest of the meal was wonderful. We'll certainly go back.
