    Been here twice. Both times my servers were friendly enough but gave poor service. Inattentive, leaving drink glasses empty (to the point you have to get up to flag them down), leaving finished plates sitting far too long on the table. Bartender switched TV channels without even basic bar etiquette (or situational awareness) to look or ask if anyone was watching what was on (I was). This guy fancies himself quite the tip-top bartender, but he has not even mastered basic service skills. While not exactly "fine dining," it is an upscale spot. Lunch for one $37. I would expect your servers to get training in food service basics. You don't leave drinks empty. You don't leave dirty dishes sitting for your guests to stare at, and you don't throw drinks down "wherever" on the table. Drinks go on right (not on left, not across the table), and water goes outside (other drinks to its left). All three gaffs made today. Your food is great, but that's not enough to keep guests returning. Service is equally important. Your hostess sat me at one of the worst seats in the house- a bar hightop, tons of loud foot traffic constantly going by (as people audibly were grousing about how sick they've been), was very cold sitting by the windows (when there was plenty of tables near your cozy fireplace). Just because it's a "table of one" doesn't mean seat them at worst spot. You can follow that policy, but then you get reviews like this. Oh, and the worst table I was led had been set with silverware, but it hadn't even been wiped down after last guests... the sticky telltale drink rings were obviously visible. Come on, man. Do better. Was not even offered the option of seeing a dessert menu. Managers, your servers are losing sales for you, FYI. And as I left, your dippy, hostesses didn't even have the courtesy to say "thank you" or "see you next time." Another good reason not to bother coming back.

    2/14/24 We came here for the Valentine's Day dinner menu and we're sadly disappointed in the luke warm Sea Bass and lack of any Plant Based options after being assured several times beforehand that the chef would be accommodating as they have in the past. Service was friendly but, slow. The kitchen and staff must have been as overwhelmed as we were underwhelmed! 12/17/21 Our first time eating in the Bistro in almost 2 years. We were initially seated outside but, they only had one heater for the whole patio at the opposite end? It was a cold evening, hope that they plan to get more heaters for the patio? Good thing we moved inside since the food took a little over an hour to get the soup. The food was delicious and they were able to modify a few of the dishes for a Vegan diet! A manager (I assume) came by our table and apologized for the delay. Apparently the Kitchen was overwhelmed? There seemed to be quite a few holiday party groups there Friday night.

    Beautiful restaurant in a beautiful hotel venue. Service is also very nice here. The breakfast dishes are fairly good. The smoked salmon comes with a very fun amount of dry capers. The avocado toast is okay though and the croissant is also decent. It’s a peaceful place for a nice meal.

    Best spot for filet mignon or beef in town! The braised short rib is a must, full of flavor, tender, and perfect portions. This is the only restaurant around that serves filet mignon, and it is made to perfection, especially with the side sauce options. The truffle mac and cheese is also a must. All the staff are friendly, helpful with recommendations, and elevated the experience. The atmosphere is romantic and comfortable. Also family friendly! The restaurant is inside of the hotel, limited parking in front but plenty in the garage at no cost. A large indoor dining area with some covered outdoor dining as well. Prices are reasonable for the quality and service. It did take a while to get our food but was worth the wait. Really loved the mocktail options! I'm definitely planning to frequent this location and would highly recommend it!

    The Park Bistro & Bar in Lafayette, California, offers a delightful culinary experience, especially with their dessert, the Chef's Chocolate Tart. This masterpiece combines a rich chocolate tart shell with a lusciously smooth chocolate mousse. The addition of a salted caramel ribbon creates a perfect balance of sweet and salty, enhancing the overall flavor profile. The raspberry coulis adds a tart contrast, cutting through the richness of the chocolate and caramel. The presentation is exquisite, with a delicate gold leaf topping that not only adds a touch of elegance but also a subtle texture. Every bite of this dessert is a journey through contrasting yet complementary flavors, making it a must-try for any chocolate aficionado.
