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
Get the crispy polenta cakes!
Brunch at Park Tavern is a unique experience that every San Franciscan must do at least once. Bring a significant other/date with you. The cocktails are top-notch. The ambience and environment is most-welcoming. However, the food is PHENOMENAL! The chefs use the finest fresh ingredients and the quality exceeds all expectations. For brunch, I had the crispy polenta cakes with poached eggs and arugula. Take my word for it, you won't be the slightest bit disappointed. The staff were very friendly and alert. I will definitely be coming back to Park Tavern more often.

Food and service were excellent. Unfortunately the restaurant was very noisy making it very difficult to have a conversation. There were tables of numerous women surrounding us and they were excessively loud.

The food was good. Our favorite were the Brussel Sprouts. We had to wait quite awhile for our entrees, and felt a bit forgotten with service. The ambiance is fun, and a great date night destination.

We've dined at their sister restaurant, Marlowe, countless times and had high expectations for Park Tavern based on numerous suggestions from friends and co-workers. My husband and I had a 9pm reservation on a Friday: great atmosphere with a lively scene, the bar was packed, the service was personable and the staff was knowledgeable, the food was delicious!- especially loved the foie gras. And the price was great at just $200 for two with drinks, appetizers, and two entrees with sides. We will 100% be back!

Great spot in North Beach

Granted it was Mother's Day, but....orders got confused, food was fine but not exceptional, dessert even less exceptional, they ran out out of bellinis, out of entrees and heavens it was LOUD. All of this would be just fine, but it was pretty pricey, too. What happened to the fine days of Moose's?
Can't Wait to Return!
I have visited San Francisco a few times over the last year and a half always wanted to go the The Park Tavern. I finally got there! The atmosphere is energetic. We sat by the window overlooking Washington Square. The lemon chips appetizer with burrata and sorrel was innovative and fresh. Just delightful. The grilled asparagus salad was top notch. The shrimp appetizer we shared as a meal was so flavorful. Looking forward to returning on my next visit to wonderful SF!!!
Bring Earplugs and Order the Hamburger
I've had the hamburger at Park's sister restaurant, Marlowe Burger, and it was good to know that the burger at Park is just as good. They have some interesting twists on cocktails---a little jalapeño with your tequila shot, some extra bitters in your old fashioned. They work well. However, if you have not been schooled in American Sign Language you may be out of luck. The space gets extremely loud in the evenings.

Helpful server. Ordered the sole despite warnings by the server that it was a "modest" portion. Modest didn't begin to describe a 2 ounce piece of fish for $30. Left starving and furious. What a rip off.

Beautiful place for brunch with really nice ambiance. We had a party of 6 and our waiter was friendly, but often missing when we needed something. We started with the huckleberry fritters which were outstanding! My friends had the avocado toast as well and enjoyed it. For my main course I ordered the pancakes which weren't memorable at all. 2 pancakes with a pat of butter and a very small bit of syrup. If I'm paying $12 for pancakes I expect them to be pretty good and these were just ok. A few friends ordered the French toast which looked yummy but they said was soggy by they time it got to the table. The shrimp and grits seemed to be well liked by my friend that ordered it.
It takes a lot to really "wow" for brunch, but our brunch at Park Tavern was above and beyond good.

The bar steak was as tough as shoe leather - we will be back for the park tavern fries as a snack but won't be headed back for entrees anytime soon.
Bloody Mary is a MUST
Had a fantastic brunch here with friends. Possibly the best bloody mary in the city. The deviled eggs are great as well. I had a reservation, so I walked right in, but there are bar spots available too. Great atmosphere and yummy brunch dishes. It is fun watching the open kitchen as well.

My husband had food poisoning and the host treated us poorly when we checked in.
We sat outside with a beautiful view of some park. We were asked to move seats (to adapt for a larger group next to us) and the waiter brought us avocado toast to thank us! Then he forgot to bring coffee, so it was free! I like that kind of service.
Going down hill
Normally love this place but time previous to this wasn't as good and this time was probably the worst. Steak wasn't seasoned, burger was just good, not great. Deviled eggs are amazing. Slow service.
Absolutely love Park Tavern! The food is great and the wine list is top notch.
Good but not great
Minimalist menu. Good beef jerky but an odd item for dinner. Brussels sprouts were good flavor but a little too greasy. Tartar was good. Clams ok but needed more plain bread for dipping. Hard to get a reservation but many tables were empty...wanted a table for 4 but they said that was not available --- I saw plenty of tables avail.

Great food, great service, great experience!! Perfect date spot or place to bring family/friends from out of town.
Great food, great ambiance, great server
We went to celebrate my mother's 50th birthday. The food and drinks were amazing. There seemed to be a little confusing from the host stand to the server. The server first asked if I was an employee's sister and then noted that she must have gotten the wrong notes. I had told the host that we were celebrating my mother's 50th, but that message didn't get to the server.. probably just a mix up, not a big deal and it was a busy night, so I understand. The food was great and the server was very gracious and had great product knowledge. I don't remember her name but it was a female. I always love Park Tavern and will come back of course!

food was really good but portion not great for someone hungry. Service was rather on top of you but we went late for brunch and i think the kitchen was closing. noise level was loud too.
Tookpick There were 5 of us We loved it GO FOR IT
THIS PLACE IS AWESOME. 5 OF US INCLUDING MY HARD TO PLEASE GRAND NIECE LOVED EVERYTHING. SHE TOOK ONE BITE OF HER PANCAKES AND SAID,"THESE ARE THE BEST PANCAKES I HAVE EVER HAD." OUR WAITER WAS SUPERB. HE WAS THE MOST GENTLE AND FRIENDLY SERVER I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. HE HAD MY NIECE WRAPPED AROUND HIS LITTLE FINGER. I HAD THE SHRIMP & GRITS, OH MY, DELICIOUS. KUDOS TO THE WAITER (CHRIS K) AND CHEF. PLEASE THANK CHRIS FROM THE 5 OF US. AND THANK YOU PARK TAVERN

Food was perfectly prepared and delicious. We went for brunch, and there were some standard brunch items, and some slightly more unusual, but not weird or fussy. Service was efficient and relatively prompt, but not overly friendly (which is fine with me).
The biggest let down with this restaurant is the menu which is extremely limited and dull. Brunch is non existent and the lunch menu was simply burgers and sandwiches. Very disappointing. The mimosas were great.
Love the Park Tavern!
Always a good time at this North Beach classic. We loved the dynamic scene, the classic American food selection with a San Francisco flair and the vibrant energy of the place. Will be back soon and often!
We were celebrating a major birthday and we had great food, good service, and they gave our birthday girl a wonderful birthday cake with candle that we all shared. Fun evening and a good celebration!
I wish I could give 6 stars for the service!
We celebrated a Birthday and they brought out pancakes with a candle in them. The waiter was extremely kind, attentive and really delivered six star service. Will definitely be returning again and again. Also my favorite burger and fries combo in SF.
Deviled eggs, truffle fries, and roast chicken yum
Park Tavern was great! Ordered some notables - deviled eggs, truffle fries, and the enormous roast chicken. All were tremendous. The roast chicken is probably fit for two, with a lighter dish on the side, or fit for a BIG eater. It was tremendous - one of the better roast chickens I've ever had! The deviled eggs were great - not your mother's recipe, and for the better!
Deviled eggs and fried chicken sandwich ...
Deviled eggs and fried chicken sandwich are a favorite. Amazing staff and great ambiance. Can't go wrong
Brunch at Park Tavern
My friend and I had brunch at Park Tavern in March and enjoyed a good meal. My friend was running late so I was seated and waited at the table for about 20 minutes before she arrived. It took about 15 of those minutes before the server came to me to see if I wanted anything while I was waiting. Perhaps this was because they had just opened, but really that shouldn't happen. Overall, though, we had good drinks, good food and good conversation.
The plan was dinner at Park Tavern before we hit a show at 8p. We were all set with 6p reservations. Until we hit traffic. Ending up arrive after 630p. Paid for the valet parking (good deal) and told the server we had to catch a show. She was on it the whole night. We had amazing food and got out it time without feeling rushed. We ended up taking an Uber to and from the show, which saved us a lot of time. We're eager to come to eat...and take our time. Also, beautiful ambiance and good drinks!

Always enjoy this restaurant! Food and atmosphere is great with a professional staff!
This place is so great. Lovely atmosphere, great service, exceptional food. We had cocktails and bites. I highly recommend: Citrus Salad, Truffle Fries, Brussel Chips, Lemon with Barrata and the jerky. Mezcal cocktail was also so yummy.
Love the restaurant and amazing food!
I was recommended this place by a colleague and totally understand why! Place is amazing. This was my second time coming to the restaurant and the experience was lovely. I brought a friend from Spain and he was blown away by how good the food was. A couple of things that we didn't like: 1) We had 3 different servers and nobody told us when they were switching. So seemed like we were a table nobody cared about. 2) We did the full chicken platter and the stuffing was way too salty. They chicken itself was amazing, but was so sad the stuffing was close to inedible from how salty it was. Overall, food was still delicious and the horseback appetizer is to die for! Get it!

Our server seemed disinterested but otherwise the whole experience was wonderful. I love the space and the wine selection was great. Super happy we tried it out!!
Just as good on our return
This is the second time we have had brunch at Park Tavern and it was simply put exquisite! Huckleberry Fritters were wonderfully sinful. I had the corned beef hash - delightfully packed with corned beef! Larry, our waiter advised us on a bottle of rose syrah which perfectly matched our meal. I am sure we will be back a third, fourth, fifth etc. time.
