This place is on the 'gentrification boundry' but not for long. There are actually few nice 'date' places north of the L train where you can eat good food, seriously really good....

Good place to use the restroom in the Park 9/14/2008

Always walked by this place and loved the outdoor seating. My boyfriend and I finally stopped by early this summer mid June and the place seemed in disarray. My boyfriend couldn't get over the extreme amounts of mundane pictures of some film shoot which turned out to be the Departed in place of utilizing the underlying charm of the old building. I agreed. The chicken sandwich was bland, dry and unimpressive and the biscuits and gravy were so soupy I didn't even want to ask for a spoon. A neighboring table had some sort of unconventional huevos rancheros. All in all for the prices it didn't seem worth it. We only went there anyway cause the line was longer than normal at Enid's. I guess the longer this place is in business the longer the line will get at Enids so my boyfriend and I are planing on waiting from now on. The service was okay except for some guy with an accent asking stupid unnecessary questions to the staff when the place was really busy. If that greek looking guy is the owner then I understood the frustration on our waiter's face. We gave him an extra tip for having to deal with an owner who obviously doesn't belong operating a restaurant. In all there are better places to go in the area unless you're in the park and need to use the restroom. Which is to the back right as soon as you walk in. Pros: Good bathroom near the park Cons: Needs a real manager and not some foreigner barking at the employees more

Go to Enid's it's worth the wait!!! 9/14/2008

The place wont leave you in a casket, but the food is not creative and feels like the the head cook is some guy they grabbed from a burger joint, cause the burger is the best thing on the menu. The view of the park is nice and the location may be the only thing going for them other than the occasional customer who thought the Departed is the best movie ever made. The entire interior is reeking of photos from the one day they shot a seen of the Departed there. It's one thing to have one or two pictures of the movie, but when you're spending $25 it's nice to not have the picture of an extra scratching himself or a grip picking their nose. If you didn't get to see the DVD commentary of the Depated the 86 pictures covering the walls will fill you in. The service also lacked, but of the couple times I was forced to go there because Enids around the corner had a hour wait, I would not blame the staff as I have seen an archaic old man who shuffles around and rearranges furniture at tables you are actually sitting at and turn all the lights on full in a romantic night setting. In addition a younger Greek man (I assume the son operates the business now) is constantly barking at the employees for unbussed tables when there is only one wait person on. I avoid the place as much as necessary and until I see a new owner/manager sign out front I'll do my best to wait an hour at Enids Pros: Park View Cons: Poorly managed!!!, unspectacular food, un romantic movie atmosphere more

BAD BUSINESS!!!! 5/27/2008

I was about 6 months pregnant and it showed - i couldnt see my feet or anything! on a hot day i went into the Park Luncheonette to use the bathroom and as pregnant women know when you have to go, you have to go! the owner himself DENIED me to use the bathroom! Now my father used to be a patron of the Park Luncheonette when it was a hot dog place, as was I but after the refusal of using the bathroom to a pregnant women i had enough! However giving them the benefit of the doubt I returned to eat brunch a week or so later and service was horrific! They screwed up our orders and took their sweet time in correcting their mistakes - I will NEVER go the the Park Luncheonette again! No one should! God forbid your mother, sister, aunt, cousin, daughter has to use the bathroom and jerks like the owners refuse to let them use the bathroom - what happens to them they urinate all over themselves? its simply bad business Cons: bad service, bad businessmen! more

Cozy and scrumtious 7/19/2007

I took my boyfriend here last night for a quiet birthday dinner and we both loved it! Their guacamole burger is amazing...along with the Rosemary Fries!!! The atmosphere was cute and comfy, yet romantic as well. Pros: Great Food and ambience Cons: Decor (That's not a major con though)! more

on the fringe of hipsterdom 12/1/2005

This place is on the 'gentrification boundry' but not for long. There are actually few nice 'date' places north of the L train where you can eat good food, seriously really good. This place is near Enids and Matchless, and not to mention McCarren Park. If you live in Greenpoint or on the border then this should be your dining prelude to the 'nice night out' in the neighborhood. Pros: food, secret, surprise more

Hidden Gem 7/10/2005

The facade of this splendid, New American bistro belies both the excellent food and more than reasonable wine list contained within. Styled on a 50/60's diner, the eclectic decor uses many original artefacts but don't expect hot dogs or milk shakes. The dinner menu is varied enough to offer a wide enough choice for about everyone without over-extending itself. The service is attentive without being over-solicitious and the prices compare very favorably with Manhattan bistros offering similar fayre. The experience was well worth the trip. Conversation with the staff revealed that one famous New York maker has used the Park Luncheonette as a location for a soon to be released movie. No names mentioned but you talking to me? more

Great new place by the park! 6/19/2005

The Park Luncheonette is just getting going as a New American restaurant after a long history as a lunch counter. The decor has not quite made the transition--some really nice artifacts are still there, but there are several layers of different remodeling efforts visible. The food is pretty good and the kitchen is still working out the details, but it all all looks promising. Think one each of meat, fish, duck, chicken, pasta, vegetarian (skip this). A small place with a nice atmosphere for a casual date or neighborhood dinner and drinks. Good, small wine list. Pros: Ambience, History, Food more
