We had excellent service. The crab and avocado appetizer was wonderful! I had the Chilean Sea Bass with rice and it was some of best I have had. Other guest had steaks and loved them. Topped off night with simple ice cream and sherbet for dessert. Had drinks by the glass. Did not order bottle of wine. Evening was fairly priced. Overall excellent experience!

Thank you for helping us preserve this gem in our beloved neighborhood.

Park Tavern is always a treat. The food is outstanding. We have never ordered anything that we were disappointed in, but instead, we’ve always been impressed with the quality of food. The service is also great. Each time our servers have been attentive, personable, friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend. Best for an adult special occasion, as that is the price point and ambiance. Though a bit more pricey, the quality of food does match the price point.
