About Park Tavern
San Francisco, CA 94133
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
How can anyone enjoy a relaxing meal here? Food was OK, and servers are great, but tables are too close together and noise level is too high. Hard to enjoy a meal in such a loud, frenetic environment. BTW, the Poulet Rouge is a whole chicken, way too much for one person. They should warn diners that it's a huge amount of food and should be shared by two. This is a restaurant where you breathe a sigh of relief when you finally leave.
What an amazing restaurant. We were seated immediately, the waitstaff was very attentive, the food was SO DELICIOUS! I had the cod with sides for the table and it was amazing. The wine was very good and the atmosphere was vibrant but not crazy loud. I will definitely come here again.
The best part of the meal was the brussels spout chips. Otherwise, we had burned chicken (with undercooked sweet potatoes), small pork portion, no options for kids. Dessert was good. Service was very uneven--we were juggled between several servers and couldn't find anyone when we needed help. They really need to get back in the game....this was our fourth time there, and it seems to have declined significantly
Park Tavern is a quinessential gem in the heart of North Beach. This was first time dining here, but certainly NOT my last. This is a great spot for dates, friends, families, and overall good dining in semi-formal semi-not. The service is not bad although I had to ask for coffee 3 times (Could have been a fluke). Nevertheless, it is worth checking out!
We had the grapefruit brûlée, avocado toast, and deviled eggs for appetizers, and then had the chorizo scramble and the braised short ribs with truffle shavings and topped with egg. The meal was wonderful and the staff members were attentive. The birthday cake dessert capped my birthday brunch. A wonderful meal, very good value.
Park Tavern is pitch perfect - the food, the service, the environment - absolutely nothing was wrong and everything was spectacular. We were a table of 6 for a casual birthday and I could not have been happier with our choice. I will definitely recommend Park Tavern and come back over and over and over again. We had the chicken, the tuna, the shrimp, the brussels sprouts, the green goddess salad, the deviled eggs, red velvet cake, cheesecake, and bread pudding. There were no leftovers and we all shared everything and almost fought over that chicken. The wine list was good, if a touch pricey, but not crazy. We had cocktails, wine, and port - a bit lushy, but hey! It was my birthday!
We were treating family in North Beach to dinner out and none of us had been to Park Tavern. Our table was ready on time. Nice decor, crowded so a bit noisy. The service was not overly attentive, but efficient enough. We ordered the Brussels sprouts starter to share and they were GREAT. My husband and I shared the beet salad, and shrimp appetizer. Both very good, and just the right portion. I had the fish on a sizable bed of mushrooms and veggies. The fish portion was too small, but it was otherwise a good dish. My husband had the octopus on couscous which turned out to be a stupid choice for him since he can't eat gluten. The octopus was good, generally tender, the couscous was okay. Our guests ordered the vegetarian dish and were very happy with it. We each ordered wine by the glass, and were pleased with our different selections. We would all go back; it was a good time.
Very good choice, great location in an attractive venue. A bit noisy for our business dinner but we had a great meal and lots of laughs over a delicious octopus entre. Not something you find every day! Great stuff. I will certainly return on my next visit to San Francisco.
We had a terrific anniversary meal, with good service from start to finish. The complimentary glasses of sparkling wine for our special occasion was a nice little extra.
The only tiny flaw in the experience was the decaf espresso I ordered at the end: it tasted as if it had been made with 2 teaspoons of instant coffee...truly terrible, and it had a piece of plastic floating in it as well. Not sure what happened there, and our server had gone off duty by the time it came, so I couldn't ask him about it. Oh well, a small thing...I'd still go back.
We had a wonderful time here last Saturday. My boyfriend and I were a few minutes late, but the rest of our party had arrived and was at the bar enjoying a cocktail. The hostess was very accommodating and gave them time to finish their drinks before she sat us at our table. Our waiter was super friendly and accommodating as well when we asked to order in courses. Just as important, the food was absolutely delicious! We will definitely be coming back, but this time we won't wait for a special occasion.
Their signature chicken dish was divine. It is roasted on a cast iron mini skillet with a protruding center spike that the chicken is set on sitting up. There is a moat at the foot of the base that is filled with sweet potatoes and leeks and squash and slowly roasted in the drippings. We will go back for that dish alone. The service was friendly but I gave one star off because towards the end of our evening we no longer saw our server. The atmosphere gets loud as the night progresses making it hard to hear across the table.
Park Tavern is an upscale eatery right next to Washington Park in North Beach. My wife and I stopped by on a Saturday morning for brunch and had an enjoyable meal.
The meal was fine and the avocado toast was delicious.
I found the oatmeal raisin pancakes to be mediocre at best. My wife had the blueberry French toast and it was good not great.
We ordered the devil eggs but they were never brought and we weren't charged for them. Service was slow but friendly, we were not in a rush.
Overall, a hefty price for a breakfast that was decent but nothing special. There are better places to drop a hundy on breakfast for two.
I had not been to Park Tavern before and it more than met my expectations. The food was truly excellent and the fun drinks gave us a chance to try new things. The service was super including making recommendations and checking up on us despite it being quite busy. Would definitely come back, very nice neighborhood restaurant.
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.
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.
