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 "crispy pork belly" was not crispy at all, and given that pork belly is naturally very fatty, this fat tasted straight off of the pig and not well prepared at all. This dish is deceivingly meat-heavy, with bits of bacon mixed into the forbidden rice. This dish was extremely salty and oily and made me feel very unhealthy after eating it. The "green goddess dressing" on the "Park Tavern Salad" was extremely sour and overall just so overpowering, I couldn't taste the natural flavor of the lettuce or avocado. Overall, this food can be categorized as "bar food" for its extreme saltiness and oiliness. I would not recommend to a friend desiring a fine dining experience.

The huckleberry fritters are out of this world! Every dish we had was delicious. I love the ambiance - lovely but not stuffy. Also, the staff was very accommodating when our party of 5 became a party of 7 at the last minute.

We ordered the poutine for 2, along with a salad and appetizer. The table was way too small to share that dish that let alone another appetizer. We could hear the conversation so clearly of our neighbors sitting next to us. We also dropped a glass of water on the floor because we just could not fit our dinner, wine glasses and water glasses on our crammed tiny table. Space between tables was about 7-8 inches and it was hard to fit between.

It was our 18th year anniversary and Park Tavern was a great place to celebrate. I would have given the food 5 stars if it wasn't for the Park Tavern salad. It was so so, not worth $15. I'd recommend that they add a few of their world famous fried lemons or brussel sprouts to liven up the salad.
Otherwise, we went with the usual items like the deviled egg and tried a few new items this visit like the fried pork belly, the hamburger and the bar steak. They did not disappoint. Our waiter was the best and gave us room to enjoy our meal.

I like sitting outside here, however I recommend for them to get umbrellas.
We ended up sitting inside with my parents. It was soooo loud! Conversation was impossible. Maybe some acoustic wall patting required?
Brunch menu has gotten a tad boring too.
I like the vibe though and the folks who work there are courteous.

Great Vibe! we had late reservations(9:30) and didn't get seated until almost 10. They were so apologetic as soon as we sat they had 2 apps already ready because of our wait. We spent time in the bar and it was such a great scene! If you want to mingle/people watch and have a great time...this is the place! What a jem! Food was amazing too.

Park Tavern is a North Beach staple. Really enjoy the different experiences you can enjoy, Sunday Brunch, quick cocktail, date night dinner, etc. they have it all. Lighting is on point, service is friendly and prompt and the food is - may I say - lit. I go there all the time and this is my first review, better later than never.

Park Tavern is another of the usual robust initiatives of Big Night Restaurant Group. Food was good (somewhat reminiscent of Marlowe), but I had to physically go find our server after waiting for what seemed like 20 minutes or so to order. The noise level is not as bad as COCO500 which is unbearable, but my dinner partner and I agreed that we each were only able to hear about 75% of what the other person said. Only good for some types of dining.

We were looking for a place for Sunday brunch and came upon Park Tavern, and we were happy we did. The food was absolutely delicious, and it had an open kitchen so we could see the food come out and it all looked good. Was a busy place but happy and friendly-loved it, can't wait to go back!

Why were the heaters on when it was such a warm day? We were seated at an outside table on a warm fall day. So why were the heaters on when we had direct sunshine. We were both dripping with sweat! We could not enjoy our meal at all......

Got our food and were done eating in 34 minutes. They're trying to turn tables over too fast. Food came out in 5 minutes, only one egg included on the $17 eggs benedict. Overall, a little bit of a disappointing experience. Dinner is wonderful so I had higher hopes for brunch.

We had a fabulous table for 3 (lots of space!) in the front part of the restaurant, and we were far enough away from other tables that we were able to carry on a conversation easily (except when the Cleveland Indians tied game 7 of the World Series - haha). Our cocktails were great, and we enjoyed them with the wonderful fried brussels sprouts and the deviled eggs. One of our trio doesn't eat meat, and his egg was made without the bacon - we appreciated the accommodation. As for our meal, 2 of us ordered the excellent halibut, 1 of us got the clams, and we all ate the bread that was served. We shared a few desserts (the ice cream sandwich with a coffee ice cream and a financier that was corn-bready cake with strawberries) and liked them both. Make reservations to be sure to get a table, the bar is always busy which is great, and if you are driving there is a valet service so you don't have to get stressed out looking for parking in north beach. We will be back!

This was the first time at Park Tavern and is was a great experience. Had brunch with a couple of friends, table was ready when I arrived on-time. The server did not pressure us to order and neither did we get the feeling that we were being pushed out, or that they needed to turn tables. The food was very good, everyone at the table had a great meal, and I can definitely recommend Park Tavern.

Had a birthday dinner here for a friend. We chose all appetizers, which were perfect for a pre-show meal. The waiter brought us a complimentary dessert. Yum!
Great service in a great location.
The quality is consistent and the service top-notch, even when the restaurant is slammed.
A fun spot to wile away an afternoon having lunch, sitting in the sun facing Washington Square.

Excellent and tasty brunch! Shrimp & Grits was delicious but rich (and salty) but the burger was AMAZING (and I love a GOOD Burger). The server was kind to split the burger and serve it on two plates. Another friend had the buttermilk pancakes and a side of bacon. She loved the pancakes and the bacon was perfectly crisp (and served in a slotted 'bacon holder'). :)
Service was impeccable, food was outstanding and we enjoyed the outdoor seating across from the park.

Outstanding experience from start to finish. We secured a table for their Friday lunch, and we had an amazing meal. The lemon chips were extremely unique and a must try appetizer. Great wine list. We will definitely return on our next trip to the city.

We sat by the open kitchen so the nice was not too loud. The manager made an appearance which was admirable and the server was polite and attentive. The woman who greeted us was friendly and obliging. The entree was well prepared and the carrot cake was delicious.

The food was delicious. The drinks were okay for the price, but again the food and ambiance makes this a great go to place. We'll be hosting more business dinners here in the near future. I'm excited to try new items on the menu, but the brussel sprouts and roasted hen are amazing.

We were seated at a table by the kitchen which we enjoyed until a family with a 4 year old was seated next to us - he kicked my husband multiple times and had on his video games with volume the entire time - totally ruining our meal. My husband asked the parents to stop the kicking and they just became angry and the staff did nothing to stop this - Park Tavern at 9 PM is not the place for a 4 year old with a behavior problem that kicks, screams and played loud video games. If we wanted that experience we would have not hired a sitter and gone to chuck-e-cheese. Not impressed with the staff's ability to appropriately manage very poor guest behavior that affected the quality of our experience drastically.

Food was excellent, great ambiance, service was disappointing.
We had to wait a very long time on two simple appetizers which arrived about 20 minutes after we had finished our other plates and our wine - they actually cleared the table before these plates came, so clearly had forgotten the order somewhere along the line.

Was given a gift card from a family member who enjoys Park Tavern, and I was not disappointed.
Brussel chips and deviled eggs made for a great appetizer, and the steak was quite good as well.
All-in-all a good experience with a friendly wait staff.
