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!

great location - staff was friendly. however our time between ordering and receiving our courses was slow. food was tasty - but nothing extraordinary. the noise was outrageous. I felt like i was eating dinner in the middle of a bar - not a restaurant. they need to do something about the noise - my ears were ringing and my voice was strained when i left the restaurant.

Found myself down by the wharf and thankfully opted to stroll up the hill to park tavern. Food was delicious and innovative without sacrificing the comfort qualities you want in a tavern. Service was stellar. You should probably go there.

Honestly, this is our 4th or 5th time and I can say probably our last. The food is over priced, the staff is never smiling or happy, the portions are ok, and the one upside is great coffee. We've tried to give it a shot numerous times.

Brunch never disappoints at Parktavern ! Good looking space , excellent location. Good mixture of locals and tourists. I've been going to this space since it was Mouses years ago. Park tavern has done and still does it justice. Great food , great experience !

We went there for a brunch date, and LOVED the food.
We ordered Avocado toast— a must order!
Then we ate the Polenta Cakes and Oatmeal Walnut Raisin Pancakes— the food is simply amazing. Kudos to the chef!
Boozy Smoothie is a must try too.
Would gladly go back there :)

Recommended by patrons of the Fog City Dinner - and glad we took they recommendation. Fun place; good energy. Excellent bar atmosphere. They make an excellent Manhattan! Great beet salad! Excellent 'Marlowe Burger'! We thought the menu was a bit limited - in anticipation of our return visits.

The ambiance and service at Park Tavern were fantastic. The food was a little disappointing, we expected the prix fixe menu for NYE to be much better than it was, especially for $100+ a person (without wine pairing). We were all first timers at Park Tavern and were disappointed with the food but I would like to go again when we can choose our own entrees, etc.

This is my 2nd time here. The first time was for dinner and we had a great experience with the food and service.
I came for brunch this time with 2 other friends. For a restaurant that requires your credit card to hold your reservation I expect excellent service. There was a huge gap between our starters and the entrees and we couldn't even find our server to let her know. They weren't even that busy. It was already close to 1:30 . The peak dining time had also passed. The shrimp and grits were so salty we couldn't eat it. My Marlowe burger was also very salty. They forgot to re-fill our coffee.

Other then the atmosphere and friendly staff, I have nothing good to say about that place. The food was presented okay but tasted not good at all. We had starters, apps and entrees. The brussel sprouts chips tasted burned, the bar steak was awful and it came with ordinary fries, not as the menue presented as extra special! The red wine jus was disgusting (sorry, but it was!) The octopus was good, however all other things on the plate just tasted sour. Would not recommend that place. You definitely get better food for hat kind of money!!

I love the casual and relaxed atmosphere of this upscale restaurant. The hostess, manager and waitress (and all staff) all were exceptional. I noted on my reservation that we had a 4 month old joining our party of 8 and the Manager took it upon herself to place us at the perfect table! They allowed us to decorate our table and gave us an extra table to display the birthday cake. They went above and beyond to accommodate us and it was much appreciated! The Marlow burger is delicious and the deviled eggs are truly the best I have had in the Bay Area. Our whole table loved the deviled eggs as well as the brussel sprout chips, two must have items! This was the perfect place to celebrate a family birthday!

Staff was a bit snooty. Asked to move tables because we were first seated by the window and it was very cold. We got a bit of an attitude about the request although there were many empty tables. First waiter was also not friendly. Another waiter took over for him and he was much nicer. Food was great although my daughter bit down on a nut shell in her dessert. Luckily she didn't break a tooth. They comped this one dessert. This sure wasn't a great way to end the meal and was supposed to be a special dinner out.

Love this place for the creative comfort food and ambience. But the service is hit or miss.
This past visit wasn't a good one for us on Christmas Eve. The server really didn't know the menu or deliver the food explaining its components. Dishes were left too long and drinks were not refilled. We love this place and hope this can shift so we can put it back at the top of our Friday night list.

Our waitress Aura was incredibly attentive to my dietary restrictions as a celiac. She made me feel so comfortable and so at ease, while ensuring me of the care with which each dish was prepared. Not only that, but the food was outstanding--gluten free and otherwise!

Great meal. We have not eaten here since it opened and it has really improved and will definitely return again soon. Loved the steak Tartare, the beef jerky, the hamburger of course and the bone marrow. I know a lot of meat but it was all very good

We went here for Sunday brunch after a long hiatus, and I wondered why we don't go more often. The smoked shrimp and grits was one of the best dishes I've tried in ages, and the deviled egg is probably the best in town – even in a city crazy about them. Service was wonderful, the bistro-style ambiance overlooking Washington Square Park is delightful, and the prices are very fair for the quality. We often pay nearly as much for crappy brunches with food that isn't nearly as well-sourced or well-prepared.

First, the negatives: all the portions were very small, though the tastes were flavorful. I had the "rack" of lamb, and received two small loin ribs, which contained quite a bit of fat. They were gone in two small bites, yet the price was $35: a terrible value. The other entre portions for our party were equally tiny. Even with 2 appetizers split between us, we left hungry. The wine prices are extravagant. The lowest priced chardonnay and zinfandel each cost $60, a Lake County Cab costs $64--the lowest prices in each category. We took our own bottle, paid the $25 corkage, and had better wine.
We took our own bottle, paid the $25 corkage, and had better wine.
On the plus side; the vibe is active, the hostess seated us a little early, and our waiter was great--knowledgeable, attentive, but not hovering. We have been here occasionally, but won't go back again, and won't recommend this restaurant to our friends. Small portions don't justify the entre prices, and the wine list prices are beyond exorbitant.

I was late due to a flat tire. They took care of my guest like she was in their home! I've never seen such attention to caring for a diner! Just one more reason to love this place! Every item is better than the previous choice! They pay attention to details here both in their hospitality and the care of the food. A very special place!

Another 5 star meal! Morgan and his team run a great operation from the welcome to the bar to dinner to the overall attention to detail. Smart looking decor, fresh and interesting menu, top notch service and the feeling that you are truly cared for by management. Truly a winner.

We had a very tasty Sunday brunch here. Our server James was great and all our food was delicious. We had the avocado toast, huckleberry fritters, fruit with cream and shrimp and grits. Everything was great! I would highly recommend this restaurant. My son wants to try it for dinner.
