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
This is our second time at this restaurant and we were disappointed with the service and food on both occasions. We had high expectations because we enjoy Marlowe's and frequent it quite often. Thought we would give Park Tavern another try, but sadly it was the same. We waited 45 minutes for our main course to arrive after they forgot to bring one of our appetizers all together. The steak ordered med/rare was served med/well, the veggie dish was a plate of beans, and the pork chop had an identity crisis going on. If you have to go, stick to the brussel sprout chips and the Marlowe burger...or just go to Marlowe's.
The food tasting amazing good. The homemade chorizo and baked eggs were extraordinary. We thought it was one of the best brunches in the city until I started to get a stomache followed by a fever within an hour of eating there. Cross this off the list. Disappointing.
Off to a bad start when waiter took offense because one of the diners mentioned that they not like (in general) one of the items on the menu.
Then, when ordering, waiter was unable to describe one of the entrees. So, inadequate training of this individual. If a diner wants to know something about a $30+ entree, he/she should get a satisfactory answer.
Quite noisy, so necessary sit as far from the bar as possible if you want to talk.
Drinks and food were delicious. Portions very appropriate.
went for mother's day. we had only 4 people and each of us had to change what we ordered because they ran out of items on the pre-fixed menu. Would have expected a better food management inventory before opening up on Mothers day . we had a 1:15 reservation so nothing late to warrant running out of basic items. In cases like this if i was the manager I would have asked if we would like another item on the regular menu. We had to change our appetizers ,main meal and deserts. Not what you want when out with moms.Would love to come again and hope to be able to get what we ordered.
nice place but poor planning or purposely planned ? to save cost ?
We had a late reservation as we went there after a show. It's my old neighborhood and we practically ate at that spot from the time it was Moose's to when Ed sold the restaurant and it's now Park Tavern. Our waiter was beyond unprofessional. We had already drank at the show so no one wanted to drink alcohol and that didn't please him and a late night dinner is typically light. He barely paid attention to us and we asked for something he was annoyed. I still gave him a 20% tip but someone should really counsel the guy. Maybe try a different profession?!?!
This was my second time here for dinner. We ordered the deviled eggs, brussels sprout chips, beet salad, demons on horseback, the chicken, the sea bass, the tuna, and the pork belly. Our faves were the deviled eggs, the brussel sprout chips, the tuna, and the pork belly. Fave overall was the pork belly.
For dessert, we had the cheesecake and bread pudding. Both were awesome. You won't go wrong with either.
The service was also impeccable. You can always rely on Park Tavern for that.
We had a fabulous brunch at Park Tavern this past Saturday. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and well-executed, and the ambiance was casual and updated. Star dishes were definitely the Huckleberry fritters (OMG), and the shrimp and grits. Great cocktails as well. My only complaint was that the menu doesn't provide a list of drinks other than cocktails, so we were constantly asking what other beverages they provided - i.e. cappuccinos, etc. Overall, really great experience!
The food is great and the service very good as well. They also have a great cocktail menu and the "Evil Twin" is a fave. The younger hostess should not be in a service role. We asked for a different table and she was so incredibly rude we nearly walked out. Surprising for a place where everything else is so good that they would tolerate someone like that in a public-facing role.
This one out of a thousand restaurants that offers food, literarily every dish, that was so salty we had to leave without finishing the appetizers. I just don't understand how this eatery could survive the sophisticated palates of San Francisco. However, it was packed and clients seemed fine with what they were having. It really gets me that they seem not to have a problem with it but me and my mom had to eat at another restaurant after that and find something really light to cleansing our salty palate!
I really like this place. It is cozy, has a good vibe, good and unique foods, my favorite champagne (Caneros), and I enjoy its proximity to the park and lively North Beach area. The only thing that bothered me, and this bothers me at a lot of places, is the judgement of the hostess/greeter. If I am there first thing in the morning and while I don't have a reservation, there is TONS of space, please spare me a recitation of my rights as a non-reservee. Just say, "You won't have a problem this early in the morning", or, if it is just killing you to not make me feel bad in some small way for not having a reservation for "Breakfast", then just say "Normally, without a reservation you would not have a chance at a private table, but I really don't think that will be an issue this morning". As it was, we were told they are not sure what they can do and to just wait and see. I made a reservation on Open Table for 15 minutes later, walked the park and was proptly seated at one of a couple dozen empty tables. Really? Why? Otherwise, great place!
We loved the restaurant but it is the noisiest restaurant in the city. Impossible to talk if a big group (we were 6) but we raised our voices as much as possible to be heard. Great food, great service, great ambiance. I would take a big group where involving everyone in conversation was not necessary. Better for 4 people.
