About Park Tavern
With an exciting mix of vintage fixtures, comfortable furnishings, and handsome textures, Park Tavern is an elegant spin on a North Beach neighborhood classic. Owner Anna Weinberg and designer Kendra Nicholas of Park Interiors collaborated to divide the room into unique, dedicated spaces -- the handsome marble bar, the terra cotta floored cafe with windows that open onto the patio facing Washington Park, the comfortable dining room with tufted leather banquettes, and an open kitchen with a chef’s counter.
Park Tavern will showcase Chef Partner Jennifer Puccio's talents with delicious American bistro classics and emphasize seafood from a wood burning oven. From raw to fried, expect boldly flavored dishes that you'll want to eat several times a week.
Serving up classic cocktails with the candor and character of an old friend, you won't find any overly fancy mixology here. But when it comes to wines, you find something for everyone!

Park Tavern Ratings and Reviews

Solid food. Nice ambiance. Service was a bit awkward, and I am always frustrated when servers try to push an up-sell. If someone declines a drink three times, take the hint. But still a nice spot -- worth a trip for the chicken dish and a walk around the park.

The food at Park Tavern was really tasty. They had interesting appetizers and a good selection and variety of entrees. The pork chop was a big hit on my table. The lemon chips and okra chips were also really good. It was an expensive meal and I probably wouldn't go back again, but it was nice to have gone and glad that I checked out the restaurant.

This was my first time here. I wanted a special place near the performance we were attending later. My guests included out of town foodies with experience working in high end restaurants. We were all happy with our food and our server was able to accommodate our different tastes and get us out in plenty of time for our next adventure.

I'd been to Park Tavern for different occasions--family dinners, brunches with out of town visitors, etc., and have always enjoyed it. I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed with this last dinner with my out of town friends. Our waitperson was very sweet, friendly and attentive. The appetizers were great (deviled eggs and flash-fried lemons, yum!). The main dishes, not so great. My friend's salmon was medium rare; she'd ordered well done. The halibut I ordered was dry and flavorless--only the sauce and veggies made it palatable. Now, I'd not seen these friends in months, so we really wanted to enjoy our meal and talk. The staff kept trying to clear the table, when we weren't quite finished. We also had the misfortune of sitting next to a table for 4 young, loud, shrill-voiced women who made it difficult for us to carry on a conversation, because they were so loud and obnoxious. It seemed noisier overall than my previous experiences at this restaurant.
So overall, though I do like Park Tavern, I would recommend it but with caution.

Just a lovely SF neighborhood experience at a true professional restaurant. Food was good, creative and the staff acted as if they knew they were supporting actors in the great evening we wanted to have. Not inexpensive but a memorable experience.

The corn chowder soup and tomato salad as appetizers were outstanding. The corn chowder was sweet, with contrasting spice and salt, that alone would bring me back. My wife enjoyed the salmon entree. I didn't find the new york steak all that interesting, it was sliced and the texture was a little like thickly sliced warm roast beef and it lacked any real flavor although it was very tender. I'll try a different entree next time.

Third time dining at The Park Tavern. The food is exemplary, and certain items are even improved, for example the preparation of the poulet rouge (game hen). This is a dish you will not find elsewhere. The brussel sprout chips, deviled eggs, and demons on horseback are sublime. Our server, Heather S., could not have been more professional and attentive.

If your looking for something "extra special " for brunch on the weekend , this is an amazing hot spot to meet with friends or for a special occasion . It's on the pricy side but well worth it! Ambiance is great and food unique and delicious!! I can't wait to try it for dinner!

Went for Sunday brunch and sat outside. Service was slow from beverage to ordering to food delivery. The waiter apologized and indicated that the kitchen was backed up. Meals presented with egg yolks "hard" when they should have been "soft". This was clearly a terrible day for them - 25min for beverage, 1hr 25 min for meal! This is not what I know to be there level of service in the past.

I went for brunch on Saturday. All the food was delicious, but portion sizes were small and the prices were high. My friend and I shared a coffee cake to start, but for $6 I expected more than a standard muffin-size piece. The avocado toast came on one slice of thin wheat bread with probably half an avocado for $10. I could make that at home for less than $1. At least give me a sizable piece of bread. And coffee for $4. Really? While all the food was delicious, I left with an empty wallet and my stomach still grumbling.

It's hard to believe this is in the same restaurant group as the Marlowe, the food does not even come close. Although the appetizers were reliable, the same brussel sprout chips as Marlowe and a slightly different take on the deviled egg were both good. But all the entrees were a huge disappointment, mine in particular was a disaster, I had the lamb chops, there were only two tiny chops grossly undercooked (and I like rare), they were accompanied by a roll of sausage that was barely edible and a few charred pieces of broccoli, it was so little food that was actually edible, I was starving. My husband had the pork chop and it was cut into small pieces, not the delicious giant chop they serve at the Marlowe. I will say the desserts were great, we got the ice cream sandwich and the birthday cake, both very good. But overall, not worth money for quantity and quality of the food that was served.

I only had a drink and appetizer at the bar but it was top notch. I love burrata and this was served with delicious lemon chips. Wasn't in love with the herbs since the main one was parsley, which I loathe, but all else was awesome.

Really disappointed with almost everything except the great location and the design of the restaurant. The food was mediocre, they forgot to bring the soup that we ordered and ended up bringing it at the end, and they kept switching servers on us. We went for my wife's birthday hoping for something great. This definitely was not it.

Food was hit and miss. Roast chicken and deviled eggs were very good. Steak tartar, Clams and birthday desert were quite average. The steak tartar was especially bland and. disappointing. The noise level made it impossible to carry on a conversation.

The Demonson Horseback was a wonderful tasting. Steak plates was right temperature and just the right quantity. The lamb chops were mouth watering from the first bite through the last. Have a bottle of the french Pinot noir ( Maison Loirre?) with dinner. It was fantastic! Finish with ice cream sandwiches, cheese platter and one of the whiskies, and BAM! A memorable meal!
