Park Tavern--The good, the bad, and the ugly

The good:
it's lively and somewhat fun.

The bad: I could go on and on.....

For starters, the food is horrendous, the service is some of the worst in the city. After dining here twice I can tell you that they build "get drinks at the bar time" into your reservation time to make more $$$ bc they can tell their place is going to crash and burn in 15 months without the food cred. Park Tavern tries to be a "trendy San Francisco place" but is actually pretentious and AWFUL.
The deviled eggs were obviously made hours and hours and hours ago.
The crab dip was cold and bland and heavy on the mayo, light on the crab
Ummm...I flippin' KNOW what truffles taste like and the shaved bottom of a sneaker you put on that plate is not truffle.

The ugly:
This place is for lazy tourists who don't want to do their research. Dining surrounded by tables filled with aging frat boys and their obvious paid escorts is entertaining for a drink and app but not for a $250 dinner.
