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

“Great Dinner and Divine Desserts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

My husband and I had dinner at Bistro Central Parc today. The food was very good with occasional surprising and refreshing flavor combinations. Who knew melted brie and a potato pancake over anise dressed greens could be good? I had a great scallop and risotto dish and my husband enjoyed his rack of lamb. We can also strongly endorse their desserts. We tried the chocolate cake and a lemon tart special which were both amazing!

“Fantastic French Fare in NOPA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

This place is fantastic. Great food and quaint and warm environment. The service was good and friendly. Charming French owner. Overall a great place to drop by once in a while or on special occasions since it is a little on the pricey side.

“A gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

The food is very good, the service is great and the ambience is wonderful. It's also reasonably price. It's a great French bistro. Try the steak tartare and the pomme frites!
This place is one of our favorites in San Franciso

“A very nice neighborhood French Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

We found this restaurant through a review on Trip Advisor. It is a little out of the way but worth the trip. I recommend it, if you want a nice place off the beaten path.
We were in town for the Escape from Alcatraz triathlon and after racing and being still somewhat on east coast time, we were tired and thinking of not going. I am glad we made the effort to head out. The restaurant is on the corner, so a lot of light and a nice breeze. It is not very large, so it can be a place for a nice quiet dinner for two. We both had the specials of the night. I had the filet with foie gras and my partner had lamb tenderloin in a cherry sauce. The food was spectacular and the sauces for both entrees were very good. The wine list is small – mostly French wines, but all very affordable. We splurged as we were celebrating success at the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon, so we went for the Margaux.

“Panhandle bistro...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012

I've been here a few times now since it's in the neighborhood. It's gotten quite popular and they have even added some outdoor seating. I've tried the beef bourguignon, scallops risotto, and a few of the fish specials - all were spectacular. My only complaint has been the house wine selections...but hopefully that will improve.
