We had not visited Park Cafe in a while but were really impressed! The food was wonderful. Our table had mahi mahi, hot chicken, boulliabaisse,and the vegan option, an outstanding creole curry. The salads were cold and fresh, the wine suggestion from our server just right. Everyone loved their food. It is gratifying to see an established Nashville favorite continue to do well!
we thought Park Cafe was an excellent spot for drinks, dinner and conversation. Personally, I thought the food to be over-seasoned.... personal opinion. my husband seemed to really enjoy his meal. I selected the salmon with green beans..... I honestly tasted more seasoning than the individual items. I enjoy the "less is more" idea when it comes to salt and other types of herbs/spices, etc. as you can always ADD more.... impossible to take away! New math, I guess! We will return!
Have enjoyed several meals here in the past, but not this time. Service was incredibly slow. 7 PM reservations and we didn’t get our food until 830. My steak so overdone I couldn’t eat. Disappointing because my nice restaurants.
Daddy daughter date and everything was great! DiMarco was excellent!
My wife and I had an amazing, wonderful meal at Park Café--restaurant came highly recommended and since we just moved to the neighborhood, we had to try it. Did not disappoint, meal was outstanding, great wine selection. Excellent service, we'll certainly be back!
It is the perfect place in which to catch up with a dear friend and have a delicious meal.
Service was poor...ambivalent waiter. Food was overly sauced and over cooked!
delicious dinner - excellent service - you wont be disappointed !
Server was not very cordial or attentive. Didn’t explain the menu specials- didn’t know what details of a couple of items we asked about. Bouillabaisse didn’t appear to be a full entree. Shrimp were almost the size of popcorn shrimp. Didn’t know about the wine my wife asked about and didn’t say he would ask the bartender. Cappuccino came cold first time and again the second tome. Finally said to just forget it. Server kept walking by after to to try to hurry us out of restaurant - not to see if we would like Anything else. Normally really like Park Cafe. It was a bad night.
One of my favorite spots in Nashville. They never disapoint
Kasey (hope I'm spelling that right) was our server and she was phenomenal. Very attentive and very knowledgeable. Chef Skylar again prepared us and incredible meal we won't forget. We had the pork chop and one of the features for the evening, roasted duck. We can't wait to make it back!
Portion size was smaller than expected, wait staff were friendly but not attentive to each table, no excellence of service especially for Valentine’s Day.
This is such a wonderful neighborhood gem! It has a very cozy and romantic vibe. Excellent service and staff. Food is always good and consistent!
New menu. The food was fabulous! Our server was excellent and the atmosphere was refined. We will certainly go back soon.
This is a Nashville standard that has stood the test of time.
Restaurants come and go but, Park Cafe is here to stay with amazing options and something for everyone. They have it all, great bar area, outdoor seating, and a staff who always knows the best new items (drinks and eats) to recommend.
This is a place you can count on to be fabulous EVERY time you go.
Park Cafe never disappoints and is always wonderful!,,
Oysters were fishy tasting. Everything else was good.
Park Cafe is always good.....Very consistently above average.
The food is always good!
One of my faves! Delicious food with a friendly neighborhood feel. Show up in jeans or decked out!
Fun! Great service food atmosphere
I’m a Nashville native who has somehow missed this place for many years. I’ve heard great reviews about Park Cafe and finally went to eat dinner. It was really delicious- I cleaned my plate. I had Salmon with Jasmine Chili rice and a Moscow mule. Honestly, with so many trendy places in town these days, this place stays above the Edison bulbs and marquee signs facet with quality food and a comfortable, classy atmosphere. I’ll return with friends and family.
They went out of their way to accommodate our group of 8. Service was great, food was excellent. Started off at bar with happy hour, very friendly atmosphere.
Park Cafe has been a staple for us, however, we were very disappointed. The oysters were not fresh, they had a funny odor, one of us had a filet which was not good quality and the asparagus with the filet was inedible. However, our other vegetables were good and dessert was delicious. Sad to say we do not plan to return.
We hadn't eaten at The Park Cafe in several years. Too busy chasing the new places. We were really impressed with the food, decor and service. Had mac and cheese as an appetizer. I could make a whole meal on that alone. I had the trout which I'd order again. My husband had the curry bowl and thought it was good but probably would not order again.
The restaurant was not at all crowded at the early hour we went. We try to avoid going anywhere at prime time.
We will definitely go back soon.
Overall, food was good. One diner complained that her scallops were undercooked. It felt strange to be seated in a nook away from everyone else.
Wonderful food and service!
Had a great experience and with all the new places, we really enjoyed this old reliable and excellent restaurant. Good value for very good food. Tired of the small plates at so many of the new "hot" places.
Park Cafe' is always consistent. Good food, good drinks, nice wine list and a good place to grab a date dinner or just get a happy hour cocktail before heading home. No only is it a neighborhood place but more reasonable than many of the newer places that have opened downtown.
Sincere effort to make it a pleasant evening in every aspect...Will certainly return soon....value and food exceptional.
We sat outside on the patio which was really nice. It was quiet and, if anything, we were the loud ones because we have a toddler who likes to try to talk to everyone. We asked to sit in a corner though and they were acommodating. We ordered multiple items off the small dishes menu and everything was great. Our server was awesome, very friendly, good with our chatty son, and everything was fast. The prices were great too, especially for being in Nashville. I would say attire is business casual. Super happy. We're in Nashville for business once a month and we'll definitely return.
Keep Park Cafe on your go-to list! I used to love Park Cafe and even leveraged this spot for multiple team dinner events for work. They have consistently been very accommodating on menu, seating, etc. Then i drifted away from the area to try newer spots across Nashville, coming back occasionally for happy hour on the patio, which is quite nice and a good value.
Had a foodie friend in town last week and for some reason decided to try Park Cafe with her vs trying something new in town. Turns out she had never been to this area and loved it all: the neighborhood, restaurants, etc. Sylvan Park is special. We started with well priced happy hour wine and apps (hummus which is better than most, mac n cheese which was amazing as usual and margarita pizza). Such a great start! For dinner I had the salmon (a long time house specialty) and my friend got two smaller plates (beef and an arugula salad I think). Everything was excellent and we both made a note to come back again.
I think the hassle of parking may have discouraged me from frequenting Sylvan Park in the past year. I now know of easy street parking and will certainly put Park cafe and Caffe Nonna back on my short list!
Excellent food. Very welcoming. Staff and service could not have been better.
Happy hour on the patio can’t be beat. Food came out from the kitchen quickly.
Ordered a couple of bottles wine from the offered selection. Two or three choices only had one bottle left. Understood the first, but the second or third is quite tiresome.
I put together a birthday dinner for a friend. It was my first time at Park Café so I didn't know what to expect. The food was amazing. The series was very attentive and the ambiance was lovely for a gathering of a 10 ladies. The ambiance was nice and not stuffy. Will come back for some girls' night out.
Took relatives from out of town. Table was ready at The reservation time (very important!). Food excellent so was the service. 10++
The Park Cafe never fails to impress. The cocktails are splendid, with all kinds of inventive new drinks on the menu to try. Personally, I don't experiment that much, but nor do I need to, as my martini is always perfect. The food is great, with delightful specials every time. The servers clearly know what they're doing, and its always a pleasure to discuss menu options with them. Best of all, the prices are very reasonable.
Excellent menu , lovely music but quiet enough to visit
