Horrible reservation system, obnoxiously rude male manager. I will never go back to this place.

My sister in law made a reservation weeks in advance for her father but because of a reservation regulation that is so outdated my great grandmother never heard of it we were put on a waiting list and pushed for other tables. Then just

We thought we had exhausted the weekly line-up of Duane Park??s performances from burlesque, to live music, etc. The other night we were treated to the newest trick up their sleeve: opera. That??s right, opera. We were hesitant when first informed of the planned performance. I envisioned large women, belting out full bodied arias that echoed off the walls and shattered stemware. How wrong I was. The youthful selection of singers graced the stage and moved about the dining room floor clad in elegant gowns. Each of the three singers performed a short aria, and then took a 20-25 minute break before singing their second and final pieces.

The pacing was perfect. The performances were unobtrusive, pleasant and refreshing. My perspective on the genre completely changed.

In addition to a solid meal, friendly service and powerfully tasty drinks, we found ourselves lost in the lively and haunting beauty of the performances.

Pros: Great food

Cons: In Tribeca...

I found this place over the weekend and am in love! Duane Park is not only an amazing restaurant with tasty Creole inspired food (you must try the bouilliabaise!!), it is also making its way into the entertainment circuit a few nights a week. On Friday, there is a burlesque show. Yes, that's right, burlesque! No cover! It's classy, inspired, and I felt like I was in 1940's Paris. The room transforms easily into this environment - it is spectacular. I can't wait to go back. You must check it out.

I love this place! It is elegant without being stuffy; unique without being overstated; and the food is out of this world! I first came here with a couple friends, and loved it so much that my friends booked my birthday lunch here - they accommodated 40 of us promptly, warmly, and we never felt rushed. I love the decor - check out the website, there's nothing like it in NYC. And the food is spectacular - been here many times and am always delighted. Great service too - all in all, a jewel of Tribeca.

Aside from a lovely setting--beautiful wallpaper and chandelier that transports one to an antebellum manse--and delicious food, the attentive (but not overbearing) service, wonderful wine list and gracious host/hostess make Duane Park the perfect place to be whether for a bite to eat after a long work day or when looking for a special place for a celebration.

We eat there quite often and never tire of the food. From appetizers to dessert (including drinks), everything is perfect. Can't really recommend just one dish because love everyone that I've ordered. However, while I usually don't like to order chicken, I am hooked on Duane Park's pan-roasted organic chicken. Of course, I also love the bass, the steak, duck confit ... get the picture?

If there is a complaint, it's Duane Park serves up too much of a good thing and, so, not good for the waistline!

If you live in the neighborhood, you're very lucky. If you don't, well worth the trip.

Also hear, there will be late night supper club on Friday nights. Can't wait to check that out.

I read such good reviews on Duane Park and was super excited to take my bf there for his birthday.
I wanted to choose a place with DELICIOUS food, not just nice ambiance or fancy. Any price would be ok, as long as the food was different and special. The food was as the reviews stated, very good. HOWEVER, our server,"L", made the experience very unpleasant in the end. The server really plays a big role in your dining experience and she ruined it. She was not helpful in the menu item suggestions and we had to ASK for the specials for the night. When asked about desserts, she was not only helpless but sort of rude. She did say, "Well people get that a lot." When asked about the sorbets, which I'll bet are really good since they're made in their kitchen, she simply said, "I DON'T EAT SORBET!" And that was that. She really disappointed me! And in the end, she really actually made me angry that she ruined our dining experience. I've never experienced fine dining with unhelpful and almost rude servers. I'd go back for the food, but just as long as I don't get "L" who doesn't eat sorbet.

I have been 4 times to this amazing restaurant since I discovered it a month ago. I strongly recommend it.
Posh decor, relaxed atmosphere, amazing food, extremely friendly staff. Perfect.
Everything I have tried is really good, but if I have to recommend one dish I would say the scallops.

Went here during the most recent snow storm so it was quiet, but we loved it all the same. The food was amazing. Everything was so tasty. Great wine list and reasonable prices. The music playlist was great too, high kudos to the manager who put it together. Highly recommend this place, they just renovated and the decor is beautiful, great little bar area to hang out and wait on your other guests. The staff is also very nice and accomodating. Will definitely be back!

The owners definitely know what they are doing, catering to a clientele that likes food without feeling the rush and and the need to be a celebrity to get decent service like so many of the trendy, high-end restaurants in New York today. Completely unpretentious yet completely posh, Duane Park offers great food in a tucked away location. My favs were the scallop and crabcake, scallops were delish and the skate. Other notables were the tuna tartar and the softshell crab.

this place has suprisingly good food and service. The atmosphere is quaint, intimate, peaceful-- a hidden jewel in Tribeca. Sure, the prices are typical New York, but no more and no less. I enjoyed my experience!

We had a fabulous meal there on a Saturday night! The service was good - the owner personally seated every party and wished them well as they left. We ordered a variety of appetizers including the crabcakes, lobster rolls and poached shrimp-- one was better than the next. The tuna was by far one the best dishes of tuna I have ever had in the city! The sauces were all incredible on the tuna, as well as the halibut & beef tenderloin. Good date restaurant for a quiet dinner and also fabulous for a group of friends. The seat in the window is the prime location, although the tables in the main dining room are spaced far enough apart so that you are not listening in on others conversations. I will continue to go back and recommend this to all of my friends!

I go to restaurants quite a bit and always review them on CitySearch. I generally am disappointed with New York restaurants: top chefs turning out so-so fare, terrible inattentive service, long waits, obnoxious atmosphere. Duane Park is precisely the opposite. Attentive, leisurely, with cuisine that generally is inspired and that works. Comfortable fare, some innovative dishes, and a waitstaff that is actually professional.

I walked in at lunch without a reservation. I was seated promptly, my waiter had good timing and made excellent recommendations. I want to work my way through their entire desert menu. A very pleasant and relaxed experience.

I had heard good things about this place, but I was in for a major disappointment. Had a reservation, but was seated for an hour after the resercation time. The service was horribly slow, to the point that I could have gone home [to Midtown] and come back with some McDonald's faster. The food was average and overpriced. A huge disappointment!

This is a perfect way to end your day. A small sophisticated and charming restaurant with very good food. Try the braised ribs. EXCELLENT!
I personally liked this place a lot. I felt very comfortable being there and chatting away. Staff was also very nice. A definite recommend.

Zagat's reports that inexplicably you can get a last minute reservation here and they were right. Because of this though, we were suspiscious about what we would find but we were so pleasantly surprised. From the host to the waiter everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful, especially for the price. The atmosphere is cozy. We would definintely go back.

I've been to Duane Park 3 times, the last for Father's Day. All the staff were extremely courteous and patient, including the owner, who chatted with my Mother at the bar. The food, especially the Horseradish Crusted Beef Tenderloin with Foie Gras whipped potatoes, spinach, and wild mushrooms; Scallop and Crab Cake and Roasted Monk Fish with purple mash potatoes, lobster seafood sausage, and saffron vinaigrette, was excellent. The atmosphere is relaxing and pleasant and I eagerly await my next meal there. One of the city's best.

Scallop/crab cake appetizer featured light and crispy exterior/melty gooey interior accompanied by a bland but pleasant lemon 'vinaigrette' (more like a cream) indifferent pickled seaweed/cucumber salad. Bizarre monkfish/seafood sausage/purple potato puree with saffron sauce main course. Floured-and-fried monkfish was dry, potato was lumpy and bland, garlicky spinach far too salty, gloppy saffron sauce strangely cinnamony and pumpkiny. Eeew. Seafood sausage was nice, if no match for what's served a block away at Chanterelle. Baked peach ok, but uncompelling, and the 'white chocolate mousse' that accompanied it was neither a mousse, nor did it contain much white chocolate. Decor needs improvement. Cheap chairs/tables, 'clothpapery' napkins w/phone number of the napkin company printed on in red, torn leather banquettes and murky water in the otherwise lovely flower arrangements. Waiter was helpful and prompt in bringing items out, but tap water never materialized. An interesting lunch, but not one I'll be repeating soon.

Had 7PM reservations. Place was empty and found the service to be very good, polite service. Not aggressive or pushy. Food was good although menu was a little limited(still plenty to chose from). By time we finished dinner 2 1/2 hours later, restaurant was packed. 2 or 3 tables had come and gone. At no time was there pressure to leave. After we left, the maitre'd/owner(?) came outside to bid us a good evening. Service and style is not lost here. I will be back.
