Great food and serviceWe are going
Back more and more frequently not only because we never get a bad meal, but because the wait staff are pleasant and helpful. We love to sit in the outdoor terrace under the trees on a nice night.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWELL ABOVE AVERAGE"ENERGETIC" IS NOT NECESSARILY GOOD IN MY VIEW. SOME OF THE ROOMS WERE NICELY QUIET. OTHERS SEEMED A BIT NOISY.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood restaurantAs usual, we had an excellent meal at Parkside Grille Saturday night. Owner Bill Petkopoulis is usually present to greet returning customers and oversees a friendly and efficient staff. Besides the base menu, there are usually a few specials that are interesting. Wine list has good selection of mostly California wines over fairly wide price range.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLocal & Reliable GemParkside has consistantly high quality & very good service. In short, it is consistant and the "go to" choice for casual, but upscale, dining with friend & family.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMIntimate and peacefulThis was my second visit for lunch and I was just as pleased the second time around. Although small, the outside patio is really a great place to enjoy a lovely lunch while being able to enjoy conversation and good food. It is a peaceful setting under the redwood trees with a feeling of intimacy. I will return again.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI was there last with a groupI was there last with a group of "girls" celebrating a birthday. A more pleasant experience would be impossible.
