great place for a nice and cozy french bistro - type dinner. consistently good.
after 30 years the chef owner is retiring. It was a good run. Thank you chef.
This was a special anniversary dinner for my girlfriend Kaleigh and I.
Great food and wine, unfortunately the place is closing so this was our last dinner there.
Really busy and loud that night ...
We'll miss it.
Fabulous! Wish I could go back. Unfortunately, South Park Cafe is closing for good Sept 22 17
Wonderful food & service. Will return again & again.
As always amazing food and a great time. My daughter and husband ordered the lamb, again, they love it. This is a place where you will find local residents. When the cook goes on vacation, the place closes. I usually order fish, so far so good..well very good! It is a great hide-away. The service has always been exceptional, and the waitress is very friendly.
I felt so bad for the wait staff and patrons, the restaurant was really stuffy and hot due to the weather.
The food was very good but it was so hot in there that it was hard to eat more than a few bites.
The table next to us were so excited when the wine bottle was taken away and they could submerse their hands in the icey cold water that was left in the wine cooler. We wished we'd ordered a bottle of wine too! Lol
We met old friends for an early weekday dinner after a Giants' day game. We hadn't eaten there in at least ten years, but the food and service was just as good if not better than we remembered. The menu had interesting choices, good sized portions and seasonal ingredients that were well prepared. The service was attentive, but our server left us alone so that we could interact without being interrupted. The noise level was quiet enough for 4 old friends to actually have a conversation. A welcome change from most casual dining experiences in SF these days.
Just Excellent. Would suggest this restaurant to anyone looking to enjoy a delicious meal with a wonderful ambiance.
Food was mixed, some quite good, some just ok. Extraordinary berry dessert in zaballione cream, though.
My rack of lamb had a salty pesto-like sauce beneath which was an interesting, inventive touch. Lovely dinner with my mom. This place is the definition of neighborhood gem.
We have enjoyed South Park Cafe for decades...our latest meal reminded us why this is our absolute favorite French Bistro in SF. The prix fixe is always the way to go, we started with the Cod Cakes and Beef Tongue both being delightful. We followed with the Lamb and Sea Char which were superb. Our desserts were the Profiteroles and the house Sorbet, Melon. Every meal at South Park is well thought out, perfectly prepared and with the friendly wait staff serving so we are always feeling well cared for. Merci South Park!
Great dinner. Great bistro style restaurant. Chatting host/owner
We arrived an hour late because I misread reservation time. They sat us anyway and we had a wonderful meal. This is one of those neighborhood places you'd go back to because of the good food, great cocktails and wine, great relaxed atmosphere.
This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. Always excellent food and wonderful staff.
Wonderful food. Need a full bar and cocktail menu.
I always have a wonderful dining experience at South Park.
Very pleasant dining experience for our group. Pleasant server and good food choices.
I never leave bad reviews, but the sea bass was overcooked and bland, the server came across as passive aggressive and steered us wrong, and it was too noisy to have a good conversation. The pig salad was excellent though.
