We eat here all the time when we stay and their menu is great. The mac and cheese with lobster was great, french dip was pretty good too. We like the bar restaurant but the Duck Club Restaurant is also great!!

We just had a lovely evening at The Park Bistro and Bar. We got a lovely booth in a quiet space. The fresh seasonal carrot ginger soup and my husband's onion soup were full of rich flavors. Then the boneless beef shortribs just melted in your mouth. Presentation was beautifully done, service excellent, and they celebrated his birthday in unexpected... More

My wife and I used to dine here when it was the Duck Club and looked forward to our first visit since it was remodeled and revamped. It's billed as a bistro and sort of leans that way but the menu really didn't have all that many items you would find in a classic bistro. I can't say we were... More

Recently, I had the opportunity to eat brunch in the restaurant and have drinks in the bar in the evening. It was the first time since the remodel -- what a beautiful space. The old world charm and character, but with a brighter, current, upscale feel. The brunch menu was varied -- it was hard to make a selection. The... More

We were thrilled to see that tablecloths have been returned to cover the tables in the elegant renovated dining room. On our first visit after the renovation, tables were barren and the effect was inconsistent with the vibe of the room and the quality of the food. Although it’s called The Park Bistro and Bar, the food is upscale and... More

We had New Year's Eve dinner at the Park Bistro. The food was ok but nothing spectacular. So, for the price there are far better restaurants in the city. I will say that like the hotel the service was excellent.

This was our first visit to the recently renovated restaurant. The restaurant, like the hotel is immaculate. From the hostess who greeted us to our waiter, the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. We ordered the ahi, the pork chop and the lamb. All were excellent. The atmosphere was lively and warm.

Great looking bar and patio. OK service, indoor restaurant is only OK. Extremely disappointed with the Lamb Porterhouse. A 4" cut with little meat and an extreme amount of salt seasoning. I use a lot of salt on meat, so to say this.... Girlfriend's chicken dish the same, too salty as well as the potato side. I suspect this is... More
