Description: 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

A friend of mine who lives in the surrounding neighborhood tipped me off to this place and I'm so glad she did. Near the Panhandle, it's a hidden jewel, mostly frequented by those who live in the neighborhood. It's classic french bistro -- small, withe a beer/wine bar, lovely menu with most entrees under $25. Food is great, staff is wonderful, atmosphere is lovely. Twinkling lights outside with tables when weather permits. My friend will be so upset when she finds out I posted it, but it's too good to keep secret!

This is exactly the kind of place that foodies are always seeking: a neighborhood gem that is under the radar; excellent food, charming staff; great ambience and reasonable prices (most entrees under $20). Besides all this, Bistro Central Parc offers outside dining on a relatively quiet neighborhood street near the Golden Gate Park panhandle. The Staff (charming) and the menu are decidedly French. Menu items include traditional onion soup, escargot bourguignon, Risotto aux Coquilles St. Jacques, Magret de Canard (Duck’s breast), ratatouille, galette de Pomme de Terre with warm brie, etc. And it was all delicious. Desserts were also great, especially the molten lava cake – really oozy inside.

Carefully made, yumminess. Tartelette forrestière au fromage de chêvre (Mushroom and goat cheese tart)-- sooo good! Risotto ed altre things were delicious and graciously served. Even the dog got some special water from the server... real nice. Would totally go again. yum!

The atmosphere of this neighborhood bistro was charming and I loved the way it was decorated with real French influences. The food was delicious! Our family of 5 ordered the boeuf bourguignon, d'agneau and my little ones ordered the pasta of the day. All wonderfully good. The only thing I would suggest is larger portions. If we are in San Francisco again this would definitely be a restaurant worth revisiting!
