    My husband and I dined at Parkside last night. We were seated immediately upon arrival and everything came from the kitchen in a timely manner. Our server's name was Domenick and he was great. He was very professional and attentive. He should be commended for the way he was able to recite the daily specials -- I would never be able to remember all that! The food was very good, my husband ordered the NY Strip and it was cooked perfectly. The Au Gratin Potatoes are delish. This was our second visit to Parkside and we will be back.

    We went to Parkside on a Saturday night with friends and had a great time. The restaurant was crowded which made for a festive atmosphere. It was perfect for us, but if you were looking for a quite dinner it might not be for you. The food was great (we had shrimp cocktail, crab cakes, a pasta dish and pork from the rotisserie) and the prices VERY reasonable. I was surprised when we got out of there for $70 per person which included a dozen shrimp, 2 orders of crab cake, 4 entrees, 2 bottles of wine and a few draft beers. We will definitely go back for more.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005

    One of Providence's best restaurants... less formal than some of the older establishments, but rather is casual, warm, and inviting. The food is excellent: creative, no single theme, simple and complex dishes. Ambiance is great: cozy but not cramped, nice bar. Service is OK; wait staff isn't same par as a major steakhouse or high end Italian place, but is fine.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    Parkside never fails. The food is always top notch and the daily specials are always inventive and delicious. The regular menu offers delicious options with interesting tastes and textures. I had the sea bass that was cooked perfectly with a light, delightful broth and bok choy...I never knew I liked bok choy! The highlight of Parkside is the rotisserie -- anything you get done by that method will be outstanding. My dining companions had the beef tenderloin special that was so tender you could cut it with a fork and full of flavor. The bar scene is lively, but doesn't interfere with the dining and the drinks are top notch too. Service was excellent.

    This place is a GEM! Nice people, great food and a cozy feel. I LOVE THE PARKSIDE! We used to go for special occasions only but no more. We go just because we can. If you haven't stopped in for a drinks or dinner, what are you waiting for.

    Warm and friendly, but occaisionally too noisy around bar. Slow cooked specials a real treat and always excellently prepared. Seemed like service this time was slow as well.

    Nice restaurant with a good sized menu. Good service. Decent-to-good food. An unusual find in Providence, per someone who was born and raised in Providence. It's good for groups, but it is a small restaurant. So, you'll probably be the only group in there if you make the reservation in time. In fact, in thinking about it, it'd probably be a fun time for a group with its small-but-energetic atmosphere - and, of course, your being the only group. Enjoy.

    My husband and I had lunch at Parkside and the chicken was dry and sat on top of greasy French fries. My husband ordered a steak sandwich and couldn't finish it because of gristle and toughness. The waiter was very good and attentive however. (he didn't cook the food). We have been to Parkside for dinner during Waterfire and it was a very good experience It was therefore a disappointment to eat such a poor meal, considering it's cost. Hard to decide if we would go back.
