Our favorite restaurant for many miles around the area. Food is high quality, consistently excellent. Nice ambiance, especially with the wonderful pianist. Service is good. Prices are high, but worth it. The only negative thing is that they use paper napkins. Otherwise, I highly recommend!

We went here with friends tonight. We began with the avocado salad and foie gras, both of which were excellent. The avocado had grapefruit wedges, a nice touch. The foie gras came with fig jam and toast points. The jam was more of a jelly, but the foie gras was cooked perfectly. The french onion soup was good as well,... More

Whilst staying in apartment on Fulton Street, my wife and I had dinner at this restaurant twice. Our second visit was the result of our experience during our first visit. A focussed choice of good food, excellently prepared and presented. Coupled to this, we received unbeatable service from Sebastien (Lauga). I'm sure his colleagues give a similar high standard of...

Hopelessly overpriced for what it is. If a restaurant in Brittany served Moules et Frites in as small a quantity as we had, and with the quality we experienced, then it would be closed in weeks. They seem to be trading on the fact that they are so so French, but even having Charles Aznavour deliver the food doesn't make... More

Local neighborhood french bistro, but not for everyday. Celebrated (the night before) Valentine's Day there. Enjoyed a steak special with a foie gras topping. Everything was fantastic, from the service to the desert. Would definitely go there again.

Bistro Central Parc is tucked away in the Neighborhood of NOPA... The food is spectacular and the atmosphere is casual and fun. White table cloth food without the tablecloths. The Kitchen staff has been together for over 10 years and the pride is shown in every dish served. Bistro Central Parc is truly a San Francisco secret little Gem
