“Neighborhood gem, off the beaten path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

This find is outside the honky tonk district and well worth the trip. We changed the reservation three times and the person making the changes was gracious and cordial each time. The heirloom tomato appetizer had locally sourced real tomatoes, the kind you remember from when you were a kid. We had grilled Louisiana redfish with lobster infused potatoes, summer corn and tomatoes. It was outstanding. The duck and sauces were excellent. Be careful of the sides, as this dish came with kale which I don't like. The staff was so helpful that they certainly would have accommodated if I had asked. Yvette, the owner, came over to chat, expecting that we were locals, like most of the customers, who she just hadn't met yet. She recommended the creme brûlée for dessert, which was better than any we ever had. It came between layers of thin pastry strips, not in the typical small round custard dish. Trust the server's wine recommendations. Use the valet parking, it's free and there is no obvious other place to park.

“Tallent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Found Park Café on the internet while visiting Nashville and was a good surprise. I had the New York strip cooked exactly as ordered and daughter had the Pan Grilled Chicken Breast that was excellent. Very friendly employees and manager.

“Will Definitely Be Back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Found Park Café by searching nearby on recent trip through Nashville. Very Pleasantly surprised to have such a treat. The Benton bacon wrapped dates with almonds were amazing as was the blackberry arugula salad. New York Strip was perfect size. Loved the atmosphere and the bartender. What a great find! Will definitely want to visit my Nashville office more often.

“A little too crowded for me”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This unique little dining establishment just on the edge of Sylvan Park had a menu for everyone. To start, I had the Parsnip Bisque with Rabbit which was excellent but very heavy. I had the 12 oz Pork Porterhouse for my main. The food and wine were both excellent; however, it was very crowded (which is good for the business, not so much for the patrons). The tables are almost on top of each other. If this wasn't something that bothered me, my rating would have been 5 stars.

“So worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for a place for a quiet dinner with excellent food. After reading a number of reviews we chose Park Cafe and we are so glad we did. What a great way to spend our last evening in Nashville. Everything from the bacon wrapped dates to the Arctic char was delicious. I also enjoyed the blackberry arugula salad. The wine list was listed in order of intensity
which made it easy to make a decision. Our waiter shared lots of information about the menu and Nashville. I definitely recommend this neighborhood gem and look forward to dining there again.
