The Park stands out from the rest. This hip spot in the heart of the Meatpacking District is bound to impress even the most jaded of the New York elite. Each room evokes a different theme--from the rainforest-style dining room to the Red Room infused with Asian aesthetic. The dining room encircles an immense cluster of bamboo, with other tropical plants stand strategically placed. The organic nature of the setting is complimented splendidly by the healthy, adventurous dishes of new American cuisine on the menu. A glass enclosed Atrium offers a secluded and chic spot for any private event or party. The penthouse leads to a rooftop patio which is suited for social gatherings. In addition, a heated outdoor garden with Japanese maple trees gives diners the chance to enjoy the Park's distinct cuisine outside any time of year. Come to the Park and escape from the norm.

salmon good but small portions
Bronzino good
Lamb ragout /pasta good but small portion
Short rib burger juicy cooked right and delicious
Drinks are overpriced-drink at the bar at Happy hour its cheaper
Server forgot about us handed us a dessert menu before we received our dinners
Service was slow

We were looking for an outdoor venue for dinner and found the listing. Arrived to a very chic restaurant with semi-outdoor space (it's covered with open front) - very cool. The noise level was off the charts.. We asked to sit in front of the doors - which helped with the noise level and it felt more outdoors. My young son, husband and I then saw a car at the stop light hurl a full water bottle into the restaurant whizzing by and spraying water. Luckily no one was hurt.

Our server was extremely lovely and helpful. However, my son's and husband's food arrived and mine did not. It finally arrived when they had finished theirs. The pizza was taken off the bill which was a nice gesture.

Not sure we need to go back :(

The food was very good, I had the prosciutto and arugula pizza. The service was equally as good. I was dining alone and did not feel that I was forgotten. As an added bonus, I was witness (with the rest of the restaurant) to a marriage proposal (she said yes). I really enjoyed my meal and will be recommending The Park to my friends.

Très bon repas, prix un peut élevé pour celui ci
J’avais pris un burger au bacon, bonne qualité de la viande, ma compagne avais pris le burger au saumon, la qualité n’était Pas la, bon mais sans plus.
Les toilettes sont dans un piteuse état.
Faite attention au caca d’oiseau qui tombe du plafond à l’extérieur.

4.1 rating, beautiful ambiance (IF you’re seated in the room with greenery and not the main area), and an interesting menu - what could go wrong? Pretty much all of it. We were seated 15 minutes after our reservation only to find tons of available seating throughout the two rooms. The menu and cocktails looked great but ended up tasting like something you’d get at a 2 star bar. The pizza was undercooked, the other food was too fried, and the cocktails tasted like pure alcohol.

The whole experience was most excellent! We chose to sit in the garden, with its chirping bird and beautiful trees. Our waiter was attentive and rolled with our unorthodox food orders. There were three of us. We had decided to share everything we ordered and we ordered one dish at a time. This allowed us to enjoy each dish and gave us more room on the table. To start a pitcher of white sangria and the prosciutto and arugula wood oven pizza, delicious. Next was the fried calamari, yum followed by the chef’s selection of artisanal meats and cheeses, my personal favorite and another pitcher of sangria. Thinking that we should get some kind of veggie in our feast we ordered the Tuscan kale salad. Our final dish was the garganelli lamb ragout. With full bellies we reluctantly didnt order dessert. Maybe next time we’ll forgo the salad and leave room for dessert.

You absolutely go to The Park for the ambiance. It is a beautiful space. The food is just ok, nothing spectacular or exciting. The service was good and attentive and the hostesses were very nice as well. Would definitely go back but just for an early evening drink instead of dinner. Too many other places with truly outstanding food in this city!

The only criticisms I would have is that they refused to sit us at our table until the third member of our party showed up despite our reservation and no one was manning the hostess stand when we arrived.

Awesome atmosphere. Took 17 minutes to seat us after our reservation. Service was super slow. 15+ for the first drink, and appetizers that were ordered at the same time were within minutes after.

Server seemed to be the only one working. Price point is decent, but service is everything. Food was good! Salmon burger has a good sauce, but was small.

Worth the try!

Staff was very attentive. Ambience was amazing. Light decorations at the ceiling was a nice touch. Food servings are big enough to share if your date has a small appetite. It would be nice if there was a lounge area with couches and dimmer lighting. Always better to have a reservation. Overall happy with the experience.

I love bringing out of towners here. The atmosphere is so pretty and the prices are moderate. The menu is a bit all over the place, but workable for most palates and dietary restrictions. Our server was nice, but it took a long time for our food to arrive in a mostly empty restaurant. There were no apologies and when the food did arrive, two of the four orders were wrong or missing items.

We had such a lovely time at The Park. Our server (I forget her name) was so attentive and bubbly and was able to accommodate our dietary requirements (and there were a few!) Front of house was friendly and not snooty at all which I have encountered a lot. Overall, it was a great experience and I would highly recommend it for a get together and date night!

The hostess was rude, the servers forgot about us, and the food was fine at best. The pizza was good was tasty but a little under cooked. THe salmon burger was tiny and lukewarm. The fries were DRENCHED in salt. The look of the place is AMAZING! It truly has a great interior. However, the food and service are not on par with the look. I would only go again if i was invited but not willingly.

We scheduled a party of 6 for my wife’s 40th birthday. We sat at the table at 7:30pm and at 8:15pm still did not have our drinks order taken. A guest of the party had to speak with the manager to make this happen. He came over later and said he would take money off of the bottle of wine - thanks for saving us $6.00. My wife and her friend had their fish extremely undercooked and had to return it. The staff allows another party seated next to us to pile their coats up on the bench to the point t they fell over onto one of my wife’s guests. Then the bill came. The server messed up the billing twice even though we clearly stated what we wanted. This restaurant has been great in the past but I do not think I will ever return.

Second time at The Park, this time with friends visiting from Ohio and Germany. I choose The Park due to it's location new the High-Line and the atmosphere... and it was a hit. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how unique that setting was, inside of an old garage.

We started with drinks in the bar (next to the fireplace) and enjoyed some local brews. The bartender was very friendly, but the beers weren't icy cold like I prefer. My German guests probably liked that fact.

For dinner a few ordered the pizza, which looked amazing. My wife loved her's. I ordered a burger as did a few others in our party. Everyone was happy with their dish and happy to have experienced the unique atmosphere.
