This is a local favorite that goes out of its way to provide unique offerings for the discerning palate. It's also a special occasion restaurant that can accommodate small parties and large if need be. There's a bar waiting area with tables, chairs, and bar counter where you can order food. I don't eat there often but when I do I'm never disappointed. The owner is there a lot of the time. So, if things don't go well, just ask for him. He's more than willing to make things right. Go early or make a reservation, particularly on Friday and Saturday nights.

I celebrated my birthday here in the Private room. Had a special menu created to serve to my guests for an intimate dinner. The service was awesome although it would be nice to have a button that could call someone if service is needed instead of us going out to flag our server. The food was amazing! The Hamachi crudo, chicharon, scallops, pork chop, mashed potatoes, salad, truffle soup. DELICIOUS!!! Would love to try this place at lunch. Will definitely be back to try other dishes! Oh and the coffee was delish!

Lunch was delicious so I wanted to check out dinner later in the week. Even though we just had burgers, they were worth the visit. Enjoyed a great dessert of lava cake with espresso gelato and cappuccinos as well. Cozy room with fireplace as well as tables outside on the porch. Every plate of food that passed our table looked wonderful and we want to return for steaks!

We used to eat here all the time. B, L, D. Not anymore. Food and service have tanked. It is a shame.

Just visited the Park again after a long time. The decor has been updated and the menu improved. The prices are definitely higher but the quality also seems to be much improved. I had the crab cake appetizer which was delicious and the Mary's Pressed Chicken for an entree. The chicken was perfectly cooked and well seasoned - the only disappointment was the relatively flavorless "creamed spinach" base. They have a full bar and lots of mixology options plus a surprisingly good choice of wines. Lots of parking plus valet if you want that.
