Overall, the food was delicious! The only complaint was that the flourless chocolate cake was smothered in whipped cream. The cake is the star of the show and the whipped cream should be an add on. Service could have been better. It was quite fast and we felt a bit rushed. We had to ask for some time between courses. Also, the server told us that she would come back to "top off" our wine glasses when the bottle was chilled and she never did. These minor complaints will not keep us away next year though! We're looking forward to another season.

Had the a la carte menu in an igloo with some of my friends and it was a fantastic experience! Maria was attentive without being intrusive and so kind. The food and drinks were great (generous pours on the cocktails) and it felt like having a private room but with a view of Boston. It was surprisingly warm given the setting and having a Bluetooth speaker really helped create a little cocoon of privacy. I can’t stress enough how lovely Maria was, it was worth it for her service alone!

About the restaurant
Park 54 Restaurant and Lounge is a small black-owned business in Hyde Park, MA. "Park 54" is inspired by the life and service of the men who served in the 54th Regiment - a volunteer infantry comprised of free Black American male soldiers. The regiment was established in Readville, MA, now known as "Hyde Park." Despite the backlash the men received for fighting in a "white man's war" each bravely risked their lives for the freedom and betterment of their families, community, and country.

Our mission is to continue the legacy of the historical 54th Regiment. We have created a safe haven where our beloved community of Hyde Park and the neighboring towns, can experience the freedom, happiness, and fullness of self-expression the 54th Regiment fought for. Having only been open for less than a year, we have already accomplished this by offering great food, innovative libations, incredible music, compelling historical artifacts, and an inviting ambiance!

I have never in my life has posted anything about a restaurant. Last night we went to 908 Bistro in Rt 28 in South Yarmouth. It is a small restaurant with enormously good food. My cousin and I had osso buco, which I have never encountered on any menu on Cape Cod. My husband had sea food filled sole. They were all incredible good, freshly cooked after we placed our order. Desserts, bread pudding and creme brulee, were also excellent. Service was great by a lady with constant smiles and very friendly attitude. We highly recommend this restaurant.

After 28 years we present you India with a fresh new look, a creative menu offering a blend of contemporary and traditional favorites, a new kitchen & team elevating our food and service, and elegant lighting transforming the entire restaurant. Enjoy our Garden Bar and Patio in the summer and cozy fireplace seating in the winter.

America is a melting pot like India was over a 1000 years ago. Being in the US offers a chef a lot of exciting possibilities to play with the ingredients that are not commonly found in India. We are availing these opportunities to create an exciting menu that has a blend of traditional favorites like Chicken Tikka Masala and creative dishes like Bengal Fish Curry (made with Salmon that is not usually found in India). The goal is to present a creative, fresh, nutritious, tasty, flavorful and a balanced meal. Like the 21st century India, we are progressive with our cuisine and not bound by the ‘same-old’ mentality.
