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

The famous deviled egg was not an egg but rather a half and it was old and dry. We were there an hour before our meal came and then only because we asked the waiter where it was. No excuses, the restaurant was half empty. Very disappointing.

We came here for brunch and the overall experience was 2.5-3 stars at best. The food varied. Our appetizer, beignets, were delicious. Our main entrees were okay. My boyfriend got the polenta cakes which were good and my sister's boyfriend got the corn beef hash which he said was good. My sister got the french toast, which was disappointing both in presentation and taste. I got the oatmeal walnut pancakes which were good.
We had ordered mimosas, which were okay. When we asked for more ketchup, water, or another mimosa, or waiter took way too long or completely forgot that we had ordered something.
My sister's boyfriend had ordered a mimosa but our had forgotten so we mentioned that to another waiter. By the time we signed the bill, they rushed over with another mimosa...
Bad service. Overall, we probably will not return unless it's the out of convenience.

Front staff is very nice, bar is fun, ambiance is upbeat, interior is attractive, wine list is fine...BUT the food is rather mediocre (and used to be much better). Fix the food -- and then it's a solid 4 stars, maybe even 5.

Brunch was an absolute treat at this restaurant. We started with huckleberry fritters and they were amazing. We also had bloody Mary's from the bar( delicious) and corned beef hash. Everything was wonderful. The restaurant was cozy and delightful. Can't wait to return!

My hubby and I brought our friends from out of town to Park Tavern for brunch. Everyone was so impressed with the food and the service and told us they are definitely coming back. My hubby had the corned beef hash with a poached egg on top. He said it was delicious although the serving was a bit small. He also had their deviled eggs and he totally loved them! I had the smoked salmon Benedict. It came on a toasted baguette with one poached egg. The hollandaise sauce was delish but again the serving was a bit on the small side. I could have finished another order! My two friends had the chorizo and eggs and the two other friends had the Marlowe burger. They were very happy with their food! We had dessert and mimosa and everyone left the restaurant happy and satisfied! Except for me because I was still hungry. I thought about picking up a pizza at Tony's 😊

This is a Great fun restaurant for dinner, but not for lunch. Their lunch menu is really limited and not exciting. The restaurant is empty and surprisingly had terrible service. It wasn't just the waiter either. The food took forever to come out and they messed up our orders. Maybe it was an off day for them but I won't be back for lunch.

It was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. We were there at 5:30 pm on the Tuesday after Labor Day, the first party to be sat that night. A very slow night for the kitchen. Consequently, we had so much attention and the kitchen was clearly not stressed. Every dish we had - appetizers, entrees and dessert - was perfection. I will definitely return.

Really enjoyed our dinner here during our vacation in San Fran. This is a happening place with a very busy bar and somewhat loud but energetic dining room. Both the bar and dining room were dark with tasteful, warm decor and Edison lamps lighting the bar and tables. Service was excellent. We started with some hand crafted cocktails which were delicious - pricy, but average for the city as we'd soon find out. Nice selections on the menu and both our appetizer and entrees arrived hot from the kitchen and fresh. Our table provided an excellent view of the kitchen and the pass which operated like a well oiled machine. This dinner was the best we had during our admittedly short time in the city. Would definitely recommend.

First time here for dinner and was amazed how delicious all our dishes were. I came for booked a reservation for my mother and I, and we happily split several appetizers and a main dishes. We loved everything and had great service. We will definitely be going back.

The food was too salty and service was slow, even though we knew it would take 30 minutes to prepare the chicken. The waitress was very nice and tried to make up for the food and slow service, so she comped 3 desserts and one appetizer.

The food was excellent, especially the smoked deviled eggs. We had a second order because it was so good. When I was a little undecided about the wine, he brought me a taste, which was very nice. This is a great place.

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.

Outstanding night manager--Morgan!! Personable and super friendly!
Our server, Heather was fun, helpful, and knowledgeable about the food and wine!
Our daughter lives close by and we look forward to coming back many times!

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!
