I went to this restaurant with my family of 5. Steak frites, coquille still Jacques risotto, confit du canard, and a halibut special were all first rate. Starters included a mixed salad, mouls marinieres, and a Brie with garlic and tomato were as delicious. Creme...More

Bistro Central Parc is a well known locals place where you do not find a lot of tourists. Excellent example of amazing food in a neighborhood restaurant. Had dinner last night and really enjoyed the grilled squid salad with white beans, olives and arugula. The...More

Small, neighborhood restaurant with excellent service, wine, food, and coffee. We ate light (he scallops, she sea bass), happily leaving room for Poire Belle Helene and volcano cake. Coffee was yummy and hot. Bought a gift certificate so we can share the experience with family....More

This is an incredible experience. Wonderful staff, very welcoming, casual, food is out of this world. So glad I found this place. Plus I dined with four vivacious women who created the fun. Great neighborhood dining experience.

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
