Bistro fare in an elegant setting (formerly the Duck Club fine dining). The salmon got great approval, the chicken passed muster. Two of us ordered large burgers and liked them. Good fries. Butternut squash soup was light and creamy and garnished with tasty surprise flavors, only the Caesar salad fell short because the dressing was too mayonnaise-y.

Enjoy a relaxing morning at Spa. I am ready for lunch! The steak is tasting as I expected. The view of the window seat is nice!

We go to the Park Bistro monthly, and it never disappoints. The food choices are wide ranging from entrees to sandwiches. I am fond of the grilled cheese with tomato soup, but the steaks are awesome if you have a larger appetite. Beer on tap is consistently good, in fact, they have Pliny de Elder! The atmosphere is lively between... More

Met up with a colleague for lunch .... the atmosphere was very pleasant, and they spaced people at tables enough to not overhear others conversations. We started on the patio which is an enclosed area with AC, but it ended up being too cool so we were seated inside. The waitstaff was very good. The menu had a standard mixture... More

We love the Lafayette Park Hotel and Spa. From what I understand - Semantics here- the Bar used to be called the Bistro...and lost that name - there is another restaurant on the property called the Bistro. Four of us ate in the bar...It was lively and busy. Service was 'okay'; meal was not memorable (I had a Salad/Seared Tuna-... More

Had 'nibbles' for dinner in the bar. Ended up with more than we could eat. The calamari was excellent, as was the cheeseburger...cooked to perfection. Had breakfast in the morning, and I highly recommend the lox legs benedict. Delicious .

If we could give this restaurant a 6 or even a 10 rating, we would do so. What a terrific evening celebrating our daughter's birthday. Where to start? We got fairly dressed up for this dinner (high end jeans and jewelry), but wished we had taken it up another notch or two once we got there. The décor and ambiance... More

We hadn't been to the Bistro in a few years, but went last night. What an unbelievable experience! The food was incredible and the service was outstanding. We ate in the dining room, which was formerly the Duck Club restaurant. It was pleasant, and a change from the bar section of the restaurant because it wasn't as noisy and was... More

I love sitting by the fireplace on a cold night over a Gibson martini. The food, wine and cocktails are superb and the service is amazing. Good times, good memories.

Went there for celebrating our 52nd anniversary. Started with a glass each of good Italian wine - nice that they bring a small carafe in addition to the glass. Both of us had their small but perfectly adequate salad which was a great beginning. Then both had their perfectly prepared 8-oz filet mignon, very tender, And finished with great desserts.... More
