Top notch place for a weekend brunch. The only challenge is finding parking (especially on the weekends)!!!! It took me about a good 20 minutes to find parking and it was a few blocks away.
The restaurant is beautifully located in North Beach so if you're seated near the window, it's a beautiful view while in good company. I ordered the polenta cakes and the very first bite as an OMG melt-in-your-mouth moment. Not only were they cooked to near perfection, but the mushrooms and arugula were a perfect complement. Other hits at the table got the smoked salmon benedict, deviled egg sandwich, and the corn beef hash. You can't go wrong with anything you order!! Just a great dining experience here, you don't want to miss out!

Have been here twice and loved it both times! Definitely get the Marlowe burger and brussel sprout chips as well as the lemon crisps with burrata. Looking forward to trying Cavalier, the newest restaurant from the same owners

Very interesting menu, lots of unique items. The Brussels sprout chips were awesome. We also had some excellent fig and melon appetizers. I got the steak though, which was a mistake in retrospect. Lots of far more interesting items on the menu.
Back for a second time. Went for the Marlowe burger this time - and tons I the awesome appetizers!

What a fantastic spot for brunch! The menu items are salivatingly delicious, just by looking at the offerings: castiron dutchboy, veal schneitzel, country ham with poach eggs, devil on horsebacks. Yes please to everything. And I havent even started on the brunch cocktail list: bloody marys by pitcher, a boozy bourbon smoothie, and the rum milk punch.
The service is attentive and friendly, and yes, the food and drinks don't just sound delicious, they are actually good looking AND yummy too.

Park Tavern is one of the nicer dining options in North Beach. While their food can occasionally be a little heavy on the salt, the deviled eggs are to die for, the brussels sprout chips are great with a drink, and I've heard nothing but great things about brunch, though I've yet to try it. Still, I think the best thing here is their cocktails--the McLaren is a personal favorite, and the bartenders are always super nice. Some nights they open up a semi-secret space in the back called the Eden Lounge, which, along with the bar, is a great place to grab a seat if you forgot to make reservations. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is it's pretty darn pricey, even if it is really good.

I went for a bday dinner and thought the food was delicious. I got the salmon and loved it. My friend got the steak and my girl friend got the scallops. We all really enjoyed our dishes. My favorite item was the truffle fries!Recommended for:Foodies

Love love ............loved it here!!
Started with the brussel sprout chips, deviled eggs, and the burger to share. YUM! The brussel sprout chips were so light, airy, and addicting! The deviled eggs were impeccable. Bacon and jalapeno complimented it very well! The burger did not disappoint and I can definitely see why Marlowe is so successful!
For entrees we got the mussels, chicken, pork chop, and scallops. Mussels were delish, the fennel sausage cream sauce on the bottom was even better!! My dad sopped up all the goodness from my plate. Haha. The pork chop was hefty, juicy, and delish. The star of the show though was the chicken. SO GOOD! Moist and juicy and oh so flavorful. Such a neat take on beer can chicken. This is a mustttttttttttt try if you are here.
For dessert we shared the cheesecake parfait with smoked salt. Wow- it was a crowd pleaser!! The smoked salt atop was a great compliment to the creamy parfait.
Overall, a wonderful experience. Service was excellent and they even comped my mom's soup because it didn't come out at the same time as the rest of our dishes. Talk about customer service!!!! :)

Good Times and Brussels Chips!
And so it was as Rene C., his wife Erica, Johanna M. and her friend MM gathered at Park Tavern after a Gogobot Party at Rosewood. It was a fine second choice as Tony's Pizza had a long wait on this Wednesday evening.
When we first walked in, the place was full and bustling with "beautiful people". Sometimes this much "buzz" means that both the clientele and restaurant are full of themselves, but in this case the Maitre D' was super accommodating in finding us an outside table. That sort of attentive and friendly service continued on with our waitress, the wine steward, and other support staff. We felt well taken care of during the entire evening, even though our total bill probably didn't come close to a few bar tabs still running inside.
Sitting outside also makes for better conversation and we had some good ones. The center of the conversation was MM's fascinating explanation of his new Marker App and tales of travel that have both experienced and wished that I could. The Yelp and Gogobot comparisons came up, as did OCD-fueled writing, and what how virtual social interaction is evolving. And all this engaging interaction timelessly continued while life on this side of Washington Square went walking or whizzing by on this comfortable evening. I knew I eventually had to get in the car and drive back to Pleasant Hill, but I was in no hurry for the evening to end.
But that did mean that I limited my alcohol intake to a glass of wine. That delicious red came from a shared and well priced bottle of Cabernet Franc. I passed on the great looking Templeton Rye (from Iowa!) Side Cars and was intrigued as talk then centered around similar specialty whiskeys such as Whistlepig.
The food was great too. Everyone else at the Table went for the Burger, which unfortunately I passed on as I had already filled up before and during the party. My Bad. However, I was just fine as I happily munched on the Brussels Sprout Chips and Brussels Sprout Hearts (sauteed with lemon and cheese).
So there you go. When you put together a nice venue, great conversation, and good food, it's an experience that bears repeating.

A classic American bistro tucked away in the heart of North Beach. This eatery serves up many of your favorite classics. Everything from superb burgers to juicy steaks, chops and seafood. They have a full bar staffed by some of the cities best mixologists.
Sister restaurant of Marlowe.
