    This is definitely one of the loveliest places to meet a friend for a special lunch or hold a business meeting. The food is beautifully presented and delicious, the wait staff is warm and gracious, attentive but not overly so, and I have nothing but praises for The Park Bistro and Bar at the Lafayette Park Hotel.

    Four of us dropped in for an old-friends' reunion lunch. This was my first time here, and I was delighted. The staff was very friendly, attentive and non-intrusive. The drinks and food came out pretty quickly. Two ordered pulled pork sandwiches and two had the Park burger. The Park burgers were cooked perfectly! The fries were extra crisp as requested and we even got grilled Serrano peppers to spice up our food. All four plates were pretty clean at the end! We had a long lunch and didn't feel rushed. The French 75's hit the spot! Mike & Terrence took good care of us.

    The food was googd however the best part of the dinner was our food server, Vivian Woo. She is congenial, cordial,, attentive, and knowledgeable.about the menu and wine selections. The cocktails were well made. The ambience in the dining room, if you're not seated at a window booth, is nice but nothing special. Parking can be difficult. Overall a nice dinner.

    The menu held several options we would’ve enjoyed. The soup of the day was outstanding and well seasoned. Our server was extremely helpful and made our experience pleasant. The Cobb salad was excellent. We dined outside, but the surroundings are pretty both inside and out. We plan to return in the evening and make a reservation so we can sit at the fire pit. Definitely a place to try out.

    While the service was very good, my husband and I found the food to be a bit overpriced- we were pleased with the food, but it did not blow us away, especially for the price. We sat on the patio, which we would have found more enjoyable without a television screen on. My husband enjoyed his cocktails and I liked my mocktail- I would perhaps recommend this place for drinks, an appetizer or burger, but I would hesitate to recommend it for the expensive entrees.

    The worst French onion soup and calamari we have ever had. The soup tasted like a basic beef broth and the calamari was chewy and tasteless. My steak tasted low grade and my husbands cheeseburger was just ok. And we eat all kinds of food (fast food, chain, fine dining, Michelin star). We will never go back to this restaurant. The bar is fun if you are staying at the hotel, but make sure you eat before you go.

    Unfortunately, despite having reservations, we were sat in the bar area. We weren't the only ones, either. People were playing a dice game, which was rather loud and unwelcome. The food was above average and our server did a very good job.

    It is very frustrating to not be able to contact Open Table. Been an active member for a long time but Covid kind of halted activity. Recently - have made and kept multiple reservations. Confirmation says eligible for points. After I get home, get an email saying not eligible. Sorry - automated answers don’t cut it. And - sorry for the vent, know this isn’t the way to go - but don’t know what the alternative is.

    We've eaten here many times and are glad its open full time again after being closed for sometime during the pandemic. The staff are all very professional and friendly being very attentive to the guests needs. The food continues to be very good with unique recipes/dishes. I had the bone-in pork chop and was cooked perfectly, I ordered it medium temp. Also had the Cesar salad with Salmon and was delicious and cooked perfectly also. Have you tried grilled octopus? Well its worth the try if you haven't .

    We ate outside and it was extremely comfortable. They have a large screen television outside and it was on the channel that played the Warriors vs. Celtics game 6. After we were finished with dinner and paid our bill, we asked if we could stay and watch the rest of the Warriors game and we were graciously told that we could stay. I believe that at least 2 other tables stayed as well. It was very kind of the staff to let us stay and watch the rest of the game and the food was good as well.

    Even after sending them a request beforehand via Open Table to surprise my husband with a birthday candle on a dessert (something that is usually complimentary but I still offered to pay for, mind you), it still wasn’t done. I even dropped hints many times about it being my husband’s birthday but they all fell on deaf ears. After the meal, we were just handed the check. That was that. I guess this is a place not in the business of making birthday celebrants feel special. As to the meals we were served, they didn’t make up for this disappointment. I ordered the steak frites and the sauce they used had a bitter aftertaste - pretty much like our experience overall with this restaurant.

    My aunt and I enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Lafayette Park Hotel. We both ordered the French Onion Soup which is so delicious, along with a salad. It’s a very pleasant atmosphere and was surprisingly quiet for a Sunday at noon. I was surprised that they no longer offer valet parking but luckily there was a parking place nearby as my aunt is quite elderly.

    My husband and I each ordered the Cobb salad. My husband enjoyed it except for the underripe avacado. I do not care for chunks of chicken and ham, which I had to cut, in a Cobb. My avacado wasn’t ripe either.

You have a friendly, efficient and warm staff which, along with the wonderful culinary experience, has us returning with enthusiasm.

    Lovely spot for breakfast. Sat outside on the patio and ambiance and setting was perfect. Our waitress, Paige, was outstanding. Coffee was immediate and breakfast menu was full of great dishes. We had the traditional breakfast and the eggs benedict. Couldn't have been more delightful. I only took about 7 minutes from the time we ordered until breakfast arrived. Coffee was refilled continually without asking. I would highly recommend this lovely hotel and restaurant for a quiet and delicious morning breakfast.

    The waiter rushed us. We went there for Sunday brunch, and we had a 10 am reservation. We sat, ordered coffee, and started to catch up, our third person arrived at 10:15 am and at 10:32 am, she came to the table to tell us we had to order because the kitchen was closing at 10:30 am! Unbelievable, on a Sunday kitchen closing at 10:30 am!! This place used to be an excellent place for brunch, restaurant, and bar. However, our most recent experience was highly disappointing.
