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. 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
Both my guest and I are in the biz. He's a chef and I work in the front of house as a manager and private events coordinator. We did not think we should mention it--that is, until my date was drilling our fabulous server! Our server (his name escapes me) was funny, attentive, and quite knowledgeable about the menu. He definitely held his own while being put to the test by my date! And the complimentary carrot cake (known as the birthday cake dessert) was a nice way to end our meal.
I would never have tried the bone marrow had I gone by myself or with someone else. But I am so glad I did because it was probably the best part of the meal. Flavorful and delicious. My steak, unfortunately, was over cooked (I asked for med-rare on the rare side and it was more medium. Next time I'll probably ask for it rare.). His pork chop, however, was perfect. Very generous portions for dinner.
I would have enjoyed dining in the dining room as opposed to the corner of the "bar" area just off the host stand--but it was still busy at 9:00 pm. The tables were not table clothed and were, in fact, pretty slippery. Our plates kept sliding around. Other than that, everything was wonderful.
Thank you for a wonderful evening.
First time at this restaurant. Major disappointment!! Walked in at 10:00a on Sunday with a reservation and staff was still getting organized. Hostess said they will be seating in 4 mins. Stood outside. Came back in after 4 mins with 2 other people standing by the hostesses podium, but no one greeted us for a long time with wait staff walking back and forth. Brought in a birthday cake as a surprise for one of my guests. Our meal was good, not exceptional. Service was slow. After eating our meal, the waiter handed us the dessert menu. I indiscreetly told him that we have a cake, but I guess no one told him. One guest ordered the ice cream sandwich so the waiter came back after a long time and brought the ice cream sandwich and a slice of their house cake with a candle in it. At that point I had to get out of my chair and to the hostesses and asked them what happened to the cake??!! Well, one of the hostesses never told the waiter. The whole surprise was ruined. They did finally bring out the cake after 10 mins. WTH??!! I was observing and saw that the waiters were just talking amongst themselves without a care in the world. It just seemed like they were so disorganized. Coffee was never refilled during our entire time at breakfast until I asked for a cup of coffee at the end. Unfortunately, this was not a good experience although I've heard good things about this restaurant.
We requested a nice table for a special date and were seated in the area that feels like a patio. I asked the server if we could move -- he was so kind and found us the perfect table. Things went uphill from there -- we ordered the brussel sprouts and then deviled eggs which are a staple followed by the bone marrow (was not a fan) and then bar steak which was delicious, but wish it came with a veggie or greens too. Overall, good experience and we love park tavern!
It's a delightful accomplishment when you can count on a restaurant to be delicious, the staff to know their profession well and the cocktails to shine. Up to date American comfort food is always a winner. We always order the huckleberry begniet. Deviled eggs are great too.
Outstanding food and hospitable staff! Clean location with attentive service. A bit difficult to read menus at our table due to low ambient light but other tables appeared to be spotlighted. Noise level was high which made it hard to have a private conversation.
It was a busy Sunday and we had a reservation for 1:15pm. We had to wait about 30 mins for our table to be ready; but we were ok with that. Unfortunately by the time we were seated they were sold out of a lot of menu items like the Trout Benedict, and the Baked Eggs (both of which we wanted to order), and sold out of all the pastries. If you're heading to Park Tavern on a Sunday, probably best to go early as they seems to run out of their menu items.
We brought our children visiting from NYC to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Our crew is very accustomed to a boozy brunch and was all compliments on the drinks, avocado toast, deviled eggs and entrees. I selected this restaurant for its proximity to Beach Blanket Babylon not realizing there was valet parking for a flat rate. We ended our brunch with a dessert compliments of the restaurant with a lighted candle. This visit honestly couldn't have been more perfect. Thank you!!
Another great meal at Park Tavern!
Our third visit, and the second time for brunch. There are always a lot of great things to choose from. We had the shrimp and grits and eggs and chorizo on our last visit. This time my wife had the Marlowe Burger and fries -- perfect as ever and I had the Crispy Polenta Cakes with Poached Eggs, Mushrooms and Arugula -- awesome. The polenta cakes were ethereal -- light as if they were made of cake flour. The mushrooms are sautéed and come topped with the arugula, which you toss to make a lovely salad. The cakes are topped with perfectly poached eggs, oozing of goodness. The service is always attentive but never hovering. Top it off with a perfect Bellini or one of Park Tavern's Bloody Mary's.
Oh, and we had to try the Huckleberry Fritters! We did not have room to eat them all; order of five along with huckleberry compote and crème anglaise. So we took them home and had them for breakfast this morning. I split them in half and toasted them in our Breville toaster oven. They came out just as crispy as in the restaurant. Just take them out of the fridge for a half hour or so to take the chill off and toast them for three or four minutes to heat them through and crisp them up.
As a Celiac disease person, I am so excited to find a restaurant that is well versed about Celiac. The staff was kind, compassionate and knowledgeable about the steps of having to eat Gluten Free. Thank you! I will return many times! The joys of eating out have been restored at Park Tavern!!
I was very disappointed in tonight's experience. We sat 35+ minutes after our reservation time. This is easily the 20+ time I've dined here, most of which should be documented in my OpenTable and the fact that they barely addressed the delay in seating us was unacceptable. They should have bought us a round of drinks. Annoying... we are all regulars.
I frequently go to Park Tavern. It is my go to neighborhood restaurant. I especially love the Brussel sprout chips. I was a bit surprised that the service last Wednesday was not per the usual standard. Service was very slow and a bit choppy. It was a pretty crowded evening. I will still continue to go to Park Tavern regularly.
Food was really good.
Service, not so much...
I might even call the service bad.
Drinks were very slow to arrive with one arriving seconds before dinner. It was a cocktail, not a dinner drink.
The waiter was thrown by simple requests, such as "no rice" and "no whipped cream". Fail on both. And not very pleasant about it, either.
And so loud it was difficult to talk across the table until other diners started to clear out.
But again, the food was good!!
The food was excellent, but the service was outstanding. Our female server went above and beyond....exceeding our expectations! She made our meal even better.
We had the lemon chips (so unique, never had it before but it was so good!), deviled eggs (what they're known for), the steak and fries, octopus (HIGHLY recommend) and the chocolate torte with coffee ice cream. The wine was also excellent, a unique Spanish rose.
I really enjoyed this place. It's a little frenetic, and gets super busy. But as a visitor to SF, I will be back should my plans take me to the bay area again.
Our dinner was delicious. The sole and bar steak were very tasty, as were the corn on the cob with pesto & house fav deviled eggs. Only the twice baked potato (a side) felt plain and like it could've used something else. Cocktails we're above average, but hit or miss.
