We just happened upon this establishment walking around Harvard. It was a very quaint spot with a laid back atmosphere. The bartenders were so friendly and the drinks were yummy! Definitely worth the stop if you are in the area.

Our party of 3 reserved for restaurant week, and between the 3 of us, managed to order most things on the prix fixe. For an additional fee, you could add a wine pairing with each of the 2 courses. We opened with the bacon trio off the regular menu: delicious, but difficult to split evenly by 3. The onion soup... More

This restaurant is amazing! The food is incredible. The sides alone are worth eating there. However, the deserts leave a little to be desired. Very much worth the price!! Love it.

Fun setting, cozy and warm. The service was terrific, attentive but not intrusive. Many choices on the menu for a family including teen boys, parents, and grandparents. All generations were satisfied. The food preparation was very good especially the fried chicken, braised short ribs, and veggie burger.

Great drinks. Food good. Bacon appetizer was delicious. Burgers are excellent. Very loud so don't go if you want to talk

We are so glad that we discovered Park Restaurant and Bar. The food is delicious. The sweet potato mash with a house-made marshmellow was particularly decadently wonderful. The waitstaff are friendly and helpful. Even when the restaurant is crowded, the staff seem relaxed with a goal of making sure you enjoy your meal. An added bonus is that there is... More

Cool restaurant and bar with great seating areas and unique atmosphere. Service is great! An area was reserved for a party and when it started the bartender saved us seats at another spot at the bar to continue our evening. Much appreciated!

The restaurant was crowded and noisey but the server was very calm and helpful. I didn't know the local beers so she made some recommendations and brought me a small sample of one of them. I ordered the brisket which was excellent although I left all the collards as they tasted so sweet and so spicy - yuk. My friend... More

First off, we came here with a group of 6 for New Year's Day Brunch, I was surprised at how difficult it was to make a reservation (despite the fact that the restaurant side was half empty when we showed up at 11am). Once we were seated we got menus and were able to peruse. The atmosphere is very nice... More

I've always loved the vibe & drink menu here, and returned recently for the first time to eat. Was not disappointed! The bacon trio is fun and delicious as an appetizer. The steak was definitely the highlight though. While the sides (potato and salad) was "meh" the steak was superb - cooked to melt in your mouth and so flavorful.... More
