    We really like this place but were a bit disappointed with something last evening. It seems they charge per refill for soft drinks. That was not posted on the menu nor did the waitress mention it. It is bad policy as the drinks are filled in a smallish glass with ice. No way will you only have one if you’re there very long. My friend, who had never been there, got several refills over 2 hours and was unhappy when he noticed all the charges. This policy should be dropped. At the very least customers should be told. So beware.

    This was my third time dining at Park Bistro, the other two times made a great impression. I think this time things I ordered just didn't quite shine like they did before. Ambiance and customer service were A+. Anton is the bomb. Outdoor seating was comfortable even though it was chilly outside -- curtains blocking wind and great overhead heaters kept us comfortable. I ordered the steak for the first time, and I think I just had a so-so cut of meat. There was some unappetizing gristle, but the cook was great and the seasoning great. Crispy potatoes excellent as always. Creamed kale YASSS. The Caesar was a little meh compared to times I'd ordered it before. Brussels sprouts were da bomb. I think I had high hopes and was let down by the steak that Anton hyped up. But it came down to a gristly cut.

    Valentine's Day night was my fiancé and I's second time dining with them and we have nothing but great things to say. The food and cocktails are top notch. The servers are very helpful. The ambiance is relaxed, perfect for date night. The crispy shrimp is a must try for the chili garlic crunch on it. I also highly recommend the flatiron steak (the crispy potato wedges and kale served with the dish are perfection). This will certainly become a routine date night spot for us!

    Allie made us welcome from the start. We came for the Cajun music and she and Anton made sure we got a table outside so we could see and hear the band. The menu was varied ( not Cajun) but interesting with choices. Starters of grilled shrimp and black eyed peas were very tasty and a large portion. Potato gnocchi and the daily special fondue were great. But perhaps the best parts of the evening were the trio playing Cajun music and the ambiance of true Louisiana friendliness.

    This was not my first time. And again, I am convinced that this is the best restaurant in Lafayette, which has no shortage of fine dining. Creative preparation, quality ingredients , attentive service, delicious food. Thus is fine dining. The indoors is a little noisy for me, but it has a hip vibe. Outdoors is better, but it was too cold.i recommend reservations. Bar is good. Drinks are real. Not watered-down.

    The best kept secret in Lafayette and one of the best restaurants in Lafayette. If you want a quiet evening with creative food, a nice bar, and excellent service, try Park Bistro. I recommend reservations. I like sitting on the porch best.

    The noise level inside was extremely loud making it very difficult to converse with my date. The restaurant was at maximum capacity that evening. Seating arrangements were not optimal. We were seated at a tiny table for 2 against a wall with a chair on one side. On the other side is a shared bench with other diners less than an arms length away. I made an advance reservation for a first date, and I feel like the reserved table was not what we expected. It is a quaint, charming setting, with an upscale menu, and good food. The waitress was excellent and service prompt.
