I went here a few weeks ago for my Grandma's Birthday & my parents Anniversary. Our large party waited almost AN HOUR for our food to come~ which wasn't even worth writing home about. They had one vegetarian option on the menu for dinner (which was the most bland pasta dish I've ever had in NYC) and my family members weren't too impressed with what they ordered (Steak, Duck, etc.) What really ruined the night was the poor attitude of our waiter who was completely unappologetic throughout the evening. When we ordered the molten chocolate cake (the only delicious thing I ate that evening) and it too took forever to come my cousin asked for the waiter to come to the table and he brought over a menu to point out to us that it takes 15min to prepare...!!!! (It was well beyond 15 minutes) For such an ""upscale"" kosher restaurant, they REALLY need to hire better servers. Here's another example of what a *wonderful* staff they have at Park East: when the cake finally arrived to our table, the waiter handed my cousin and his wife (who are in their late 20s) the cake that said ""Happy 25th Anniversary"" which obviously belonged to my parents -- what an idiot. Bottom line: There are better kosher restaurants in the city and Park East needs to revamp their waitstaff ASAP.
Pros: nice wine list
Cons: average food, no veg. options, bad mojito, WORST SERVICE I'VE EVER ENCOUNTERED (esp. considering it wasn't that busy-- it was a Tues. night!)
