Contemporary American
The Park Bistro & Bar showcases only the freshest, local and organically grown produce as well as naturally raised meats and line-caught fish. Executive Chef Frank Macias has created an approachable, yet inventive menu, presenting a French twist on American fare. With a wholesome and earthy quality, many dishes elevate “comfort” food. Natural light from the romantic inner fountain courtyard, intimate alcoves, a large communal table and versatile private dining spaces. Rustic stone floors, natural wood tables, leather seating and an original art program create a warm and inviting, yet grand and inspiring, space that will create the most memorable dining experience in Lafayette. The Park Bar overlooks the recently renovated covered patio with an adjacent outdoor terrace featuring two fire pits offering both dining and casual lounge seating year round. The Park Bar offers guests traditional bar fare, a selection of artisanal beers and wines by the glass, and classic cocktails.

We were there, kept our reservation . I had short ribs, my friend had salmon.
Not sure why our presence wasn’t confirmed.

I was disappointed...expected some kind of celebratory effort to recognize Bastille Day given that the hotel touts its French theme. Restaurant felt dated. My short ribs looked like they had been sitting out with bits of veggies and potatoes...tasted good enough, though- not worth $30.00. Calamari was excellent. We did appreciate the booth which allowed us to talk without raising our voices, since there were not a lot of guests on a Sunday evening. Hotel access and parking are good. Hard to find restaurant on the premise...not a single sign directing where to go from the parking garage elevator.

We were disappointed with the services from the Bistro . My husband and I drove all the way from LA to celebrate our 5th year wedding anniversary. Our wedding was held at this Hotel 5 years ago. We also celebrating my husband mom's birthday. I made a reservation and made a special request. But nothing happened.

Went with friends for lunch. We met at 1PM hoping that it would be a little quieter so we could visit, and it was. Food was very good, everyone was happy with their choices. We will certainly return.

The 6:30 seating was quiet as we requested. It did get more lively but all the guests seemed to be aware to keep the noise level controlled. The Atlantic cod was cooked to perfection and the Bouillabaisse was full of delicious morsels. Our waiter was not only efficient but was very quick-witted and therefore entertaining. He was spot on recommending the wine. Lovely evening.

This is always a nice quiet restaurant to have lunch with a friend because the noise level is low and you can talk. Food is always good, service warm and professional and the ambiance in the bar area is comfortable and inviting.

The food was not good. My quiche was more puff pastry than filling. My friend said her grilled cheese sandwich tasted plain. She shook salt on the bread to make it taste better. I don't think I'll be going back again.

Food was quite good and plentiful though. And coffee is REALLY good.
We were disappointed that although we were early for our 9 am reservation that it took FORTY minutes to receive omelets and eggs benedict! Really? That was most disappointing.
Our waitress was very kind and put up with some droll teasing from our host; however, she disappeared after a coffee refill and our host had to GO to the computer station to get his bill and pay after we waited forever and she checked out three other groups that came in after us.
Our meal took so much longer than we anticipated it would that our host (first time visit) thought we should not return and because it took over two 1/2 hours to have our meal - remember we didn't order drinks so our expectation was for a much shorter turn time.

Thank you Kim for a great evening and taking care of our table. First time for us, and we will be back!
The food was wonderful and served HOT, which seems to be a problem with most dinning establishments. There was a blond, tall young man who also was taking care of all of us, did not get his name, but he was also wonderful and pleasant.

Lovely venue to meet for lunch and dinner. Perfect for a business venue. Self-parking is free which is needed as there is little street parking or you can opt for valet. The menu is extensive which is great for vegetarians and diners who are selective. I would return to explore other options before recommending something on the menu. Service felt abrupt but overall welcoming.

Maybe...depending upon the situation. At the last visit, the food just wasn't up to par. Our steaks were all easily well-done and when I turned mine back in having requested medium rare, the wait staff brought a charcuterie tray for me to munch on, which was very nice. But when my new filet was brought rather quickly, it was grilled/cooked unevenly, well-done on one side and raw in the middle. My salad was just okay, with not enough vinaigrette. Service was very attentive, almost to the point of being distracting, but I welcomed the help with my meal.
