You may not see Park Cafe pop up on Eater or sites like that but if you live in Nashville odds are it is one of your top five favorite restaurants. In the 16/17 years I've been going here I've always had amazing service and fantastic food. It's truly a local treasure.

Park Cafe seems to have lost its luster, serving ordinary food at high-end prices. The food that was not too bland was way too salty. The menu itself felt limited and ordinary. The trout with cauliflower purée was plated with just a brush of purée, and the split pea soup wasn't even green. With so many amazing food options in... More

Park Cafe is a hidden gem in the Nashville dining scene. It offers a laid back atmosphere with high quality food and beverage with local resources utilized whenever possible. It is also a great place for a night cap and a dessert.

The lettuce wedge was excellent accompanied by fried green tomatoes. The bbqed pork chop with green chime mac and cheese was first rate. The salmon was also good. Drinks were generous pours. Valet parking.

My wife and I went to Park Cafe for dinner and came away pleased by the combination of the quality of the food, the exceptional service, and the reasonable prices. First, Dave was our server and he was exceptional! He was very helpful with the menu and attentive to our needs. We shared the mussels as an app and it... More

With as much restaurant competition as there is in Nashville for high $$ I was hoping park cafe would still hold its own. Previous visits here were memorable meals. That was a few years back when there wasn't nearly as many choice places. Our meal last visit was ho-hum. Minimalist menu. Lamb chop app was ok but I the tough... More

Appetizer crab-avocado was terrific. Bouillabaisse was a bit sad.Broth was flavorless, came without rouille... Had to request it. All without vibe or layers of flavor. Wife's polenta was great. Overall price seemed steep based on the Bouillabaisse which didn't rise to expectations. Guests steak was deemed average and expensive based on comparables at steak houses. Might return, not sure

Went there for an anniversary dinner. We have been here two times about 8 years ago. It has been remodeled. Outdoor dining in the rear. The food and service is great. Salmon was delightful, the pork chop (which I ordered by mistake as I do not care for) was wonderful. A happy mistake. Nice selection of full sized dinners as... More

This is when I start to get "jaded" about hip restaurants in Nashville. This is an adorable converted house on the corner in West Nashville. The bar was packed with people enjoying happy hour with $5 drinks. We had reservations in the dining and our waiter allowed us to have a drink at the happy hour prices. When we got... More
