I've been attending the Park weekly for five years. While the food has remained consistent, the service has changed. I used to tip 40-50% on every meal or interaction. I knew the staff, they knew me, and everyone was pleasant. I understand things change as people and organizations grow, but the customer service level is poor. They advertise specials that have a million rules and blackout dates. If I'm fortunate to get the ONE server that has been there for more than three years, she will honor or take care of all promos. However, everyone else treats me like a criminal on the most basic of interactions (Free cocktails!!!...which really means one Park Punch between 6:57pm - 6:59pm).

I will continue to attend because I love the food and it's a tradition for my friends and I, but they only get 18% from me these days. I feel like they are no longer trying to establish a positive base of customers. It's all about penny pinching and making money.

We had dinner here Saturday night because it was within walking distance of the comedy club we were going to after dinner. I was immediately put off by the ambience--big screen TV in the front window (UGH), club like atmosphere inside with tiny tables, roped off sections, loud music, REALLY LOUD conversation, TVs everywhere, etc. We were led to a room in the back and offered a 4-top by a dirty window overlooking an alley with a garbage dumpster right outside. Not only was it disgusting, but the table was so small I don't even know how they'd expect to fit 4 people at it much less 6. They brought us to a large table up front by the window and offered to seat us upstairs for a quieter dinner, but we decided to stay downstairs. So I appreciated their efforts to make us happy. From there, everything just kept getting better. Our drinks were all phenomenal, served in large hefty cocktail glasses, and perfectly made. Everyone loved their dinners--tasty and cooked to perfection, even the fish dishes. They really know what they're doing in the kitchen and at the bar, and in fact in every regard except the ambience but this is a club that serves dinner before club hours. So if you don't mind that, by all means go for a good meal.

This place never disappoints. Happy hour and dinner options are both outstanding. I had vegan friends coming in town to eat before a concert, I reached out to the Park beforehand and the head chef made a special dish for them that was awesome! You can’t go wrong here.

The food was on point, drinks were expensive as hell and weak. Couldn’t taste the alcohol also didn’t get a buzz. One of the bouncers were a bit rude. They don’t know how to talk to people. Other than that it was nice. Celebrated my birthday there -2/29

The food was great but disappointed in seating and overall. Reservation was for 7:30- full party arrived at 7:35- however, we were not seated until 8:05. Asked to be seated on the 3rd floor. Instead we were seated in the worst part of the club- I call it in the alley (tarp like covered extension)- cold air kept blowing. We tried to sit all members of our parties closer- even asking if we could have the table right next to us (once the other table occupants vacated) but apparently this was a difficult task so it didn't happen. Only recommended because I've been here before and it was nothing like this.

I celebrated my birthday here 12/1/18. There were 10 of us and we were seated right away. We also did not have to wait long at all for our drinks and food. The waitress was AMAZING and the food was so DELICIOUS!!! Everyone was impressed. They even gave me 2 desserts for my birthday. Truly a memorable experience.

The food is always amazing at The Park. Our server was also outstanding! The only thing I did not prefer was the floor that we were on. It was especially loud due to the loud band ON TOP of the other music. It was very hard to hear the person next to you.

Food is great! Just like I remembered from 4-5 years ago when I can for the first time via Friday night happy HR. However this time my friends and I dined at the actual restaurant. Crab cake sliders were exceptional in addition to the grilled shrimp and calamari! I ended up riding the jerk wings with Mac and cheese and a side of spinach! I’d definitely go back for more!

Came for election watch party. Food was absolutely outstanding; don’t ever take Chef Lois jalapeño cornbread off the menu. I worked at this place in college briefly when it first opened, and almost 11 years later, it continues to have the same amazing energy and upkeep that it did when it opened. As usual Malik and Cat made us feel at home- they continue to be assets to the place. And on top of it all, I was so impressed how seamless the waitstaff was with our dinner on a night as crazy as election night; it’s tough to maintain great service on such a busy night. I seriously can’t wait to come back again soon- it continues to be a DC staple!!!

The Park customer service is usually always very nice. Unfortunately, we got a waitress that never cracked a smile. Poor customer service turned my birthday celebration sour. I got there about 15 minutes after my friends. By the time I got there she was just not downright rude. I asked her for an alternative version of my drink and was told there was no other option. When the bill came, I was shocked to see that my friends got a cheaper version!! I got a sidecar. I was charged $22 for the same drink that my friends got for $8. Henny versus Martell. Moreover, I received my meal before my salad-which did not appear until about 15 minutes later. I ate my food first because I did not want it to get cold. Additionally, it seems that the recipe for the mac n cheese has changed. Please go back to the older version. Mine was runny and loose. Lastly we asked for water several times and never received it.

One thing I would like to mention is that my friends were there first and was over her by the time I got there. So maybe something went down. Additionally, one of my friends was very adamant about receiving her own bill. That was embarrassing and the situation was handled by a very accommodating manager. I apologize for that because it was so unnecessary. I will return to the Park because of my previous (and there are many) visits there in which I received impeccable service.
