Luna Park is the Mission District's top restaurant by combining excellent quality food, innovative recipes, an exciting ambience... with
reasonable prices. Unlike many similar restaurants serving this type of American comfort food, Luna Park prices their menu for real people. Luna Park is a
great choice for the Mission District and convenient to many drinking establishments after your meal, or try the Luna Park busy bar. Our total tab for a full
dinner with drinks, salad, and dessert with tip was a total of ~$90.
For our meal, we stuck with fish. Sea Bass and Mahi Mahi were both seasoned uniquely and with delicious vegetables. We tried a watercress
salad and potato (vegan) soup to begin the meal. For dessert, we sampled a chocolate fondue with marshmallows (toasted of course) for their "s'mores"
dessert. The drink menu is extensive with many cute drinks that include little plastic animals.
Ambience is very dark, and candle-lit for that romantic feel. Parking is not recommended-- cabs are highly recommended to this area. Parking
is both difficult to find and not particularly safe for your vehicle.
The only negative we found of Luna Park was the service. It was efficient and prompt... but rather unfriendly. Our server was distant and
seemed disinterested or even annoyed in us. But with great food - excellent ambience - a hopping location - and amazing prices, we recommend Luna Park highly.
