“Good food in a comfortable neighborhood setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

I chose this place because it was on my route on a day trip to SF. It was located on my way from the DeYoung museum to the Legion of Honor. It did not disappoint. It was a friendly place with really good food and service. I'd go back again and again.

“A true French bistro in San Fran”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I went to Bistro Central Parc based on the positive trip advisor reviews. It did not disappoint. It compared nicely with French bistros we visited a few years ago in France. If you enjoy quality french cuisine I would recommend it. The atmosphere is casual and low key and the food was excellent. I had the escargot appetizer which was quite good and the magret de canard. My wife had a melon salad with salami and a French "cream cheese" (Brie) and the French onion soup. The salad was excellent and the soup good, not great.

Overall a nice experience - especially if you enjoy french cuisine.

“Wow, two great dinners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We went here for a birthday dinner last fall. We liked it so much we went back for another birthday meal in March this year. From salads to desserts and all entrees in between (beef, pork, seafood, risotto), all food was delicious and of a very high quality. And the service was so incredible. You feel like you are a guest in a French country home. We will be back very soon.

“Amazing French Bistro near Golden Gate Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We traveled by bus from the Financial District to go to this restaurant on our last night in San Francisco. We were looking for a good French restaurant. This was perfect. It was worth the 20 minute or so bus ride. The wait staff was very attentive and gave good advice when asked. The owner came out and made our acquaintance. We ordered a bottle of wine on recommendation from the waiter. It ended up being very good and perfect for what we ordered. The food was very good. It was cooked perfectly. We ordered an appetizer as well as our entrees and it was a perfect quantity as well. We didn't feel stuffed afterward which is a good thing. They provide water to the table in a bottle (tap) or you can order special water if you like. The place was clean and neat and small enough so it felt intimate. It's a nice place for couples or for a small group. Casual dress is fine here too- it is not a formal place although one would be comfortable with more formal attire. It made the perfect last night for our wonderful visit to San Francisco!
