Diner Reviews
  • "We went to the Parkside for lunch with a group of five people. Everyone loved their food selection, the prices are very reasonable and the quality of food exceptional."

  • "Had a nice evening in a party of 4. Service was good, but the waiter was not the most attentive. The food was also good. The salmon was delicious. I found the pork dish bland. I had the beef short ribs. They were good, but extremely fatty. I prefer it when the chef removes most of the fat so I don't have to look at it. The menu said my dish came with a mix of root vegetables, but all I got was carrots. We had a delicious red wine. Only issue was the waiter mixed up my to-go leftover box with someone else so I got a surprise the next day when I found the bland pork in my box : ( Disappointing since I had saved half of my meal to eat another day. In the trash it went."

  • "I have eaten at Parkside several times and have never been disappointed with the food or service. Our friends from Cape Cod met us there for dinner and they loved it as well. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "We stumbled onto the Parkside after walking around after the Providence Waterfire. That night we had one of the most amazing dinners, from the food, to the venue to the service, everything was top notch. And every time since then, maybe 10-15 times, the experience has been the same."

  • "The food was amazing so and so was our service. We got the special smelts as a appetizer which were pan fried. I also got the special pasta and it was fantastic and relatively inexpensive. The cocktails were from $9-10 and strong. We will definitely be good back soon ."

  • "food was OK , prices have skyrocketed , $36 for a steak that was not a prime steakhouse quality . This place is resting on its past reputation , and it seems like ownership has a take it or leave it attitude. Server was aloof,, once he realized we weren't ordering wine , and only one of our party of four had an appetizer with our meal, and after the main course actually came to the table and said " yeah , anything else ? ""

  • "This place is awesome from the valet to the desert! If you want an awesome night out, start here for dinner"

  • "Very busy, crowded, could be because it was Valentine's Day. We were first seated at a table directly outside a backroom area which had servers going in and out constantly. We requested a different seat and were accommodated, but two other couples were shown the first table, one got up and left before ordering. The seating is very close and you cannot help but over hear the conversations of diners seated in adjacent tables. This place appears to be very popular given the number of people at the bar and also waiting to be seated. Definitely get a reservation if you choose to eat here. Food was ok but nothing spectacular."

  • "Our first visit here and we booked reservations for Valentines dinner at 5:30. They moved it to 6:00 when we called ahead, stuck in traffic. Very elegant little restaurant. Dimly lit, dark wood, looks new. The wait staff was excellent. The menu was limited but the food was creative and very, very good. Surprised they had a tiny kitchen partially exposed to the back dining room. How they make all the meals there is magic. A little pricy overall, but expected."

  • "We recently went to Parkside for a co-worker's birthday celebration. The food was excellent and service was also."

  • "Our table was ready when we arrived. Service was efficient. Food was good but after an hour at the table, we definitely were being rushed along and I hadn't finished my dinner yet. That was annoying. The place was crowded and very loud. I have been there for lunch and enjoyed it much more. Wouldn't go back for dinner."

  • "The service was good, and the menu has choices fit for every taste. The calamari is one of our favorite appetizers. The atmosphere is pretty easy and low key, but romantic for a special night out."

  • "If you're looking for an inexpensive place to dine with outstanding Rotisserie Chicken, then Parkside is for you, This chicken falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. The french fries are to die for! The restaurant is a great spot for casual dining. Try and you won't be dissappointed."

  • "The food and service at Parkside is always very good and during our recent visit we were not disappointed. The issue is the way the bar is essentially part of the dining area and on the Saturday night we visited was no exception to the point where it was difficult to hear the waiter and to keep a conversation going. Regards it is a great place and we will be back."

  • "It was very cozy and the atmosphere was nice and relaxed and romantic. The food was just okay. I got the risotto special and it tasted more like a chicken casserole. The service was nice. It was a nice place to come and have a casual bit to eat, maybe before show or for a date, but I wouldn't recommend it for the food."

  • "I found this restaurant online to take my girlfriend on a nice date, and this place was perfect for us. The atmosphere was was was pleasant with a contemporary decor and attentive staff. From the moment we walked in the door a euphoric wave of welcome came over us and immediately we were put into an uplifting mood. The food was outstanding, we got two appetizers (fried dumplings and the duck rilette) and two entrees (rotisserie cashew chicken and the monk fish wrapped in bacon special), we wished that there was room for dessert. In all, I will definitely return again someday."

  • "We participated in the Restaurant week menu and we were all really pleased with our meals. Our server was pleasant and knowledgeable. The restaurant ambiance was warm and cozy. Our only negative was the host. We had requested a window seat, but when we got there the table was next to the door and it was very chilly. The men asked the host if it was possible to move, and he commented that we asked for a window table, reminding us not once, not twice, but three times, which we agreed right away that we did and we apologized. Then he continued to tell us that it was "really messing him up" not once, not twice, but again - three times. Really? We would have been okay if he just said no, but his response was so ridiculous."

  • "Our server spilled my martini. It soaked the table, we brought it to his attention and he immediately cleaned it up. Our waiter could not speak clearly so we could hear the dinner specials. Unfourtnatly he read the specials from a piece of paper. Our salad and dinners arrived very quickly. I did feel they wanted to turn the table since it was 8:30pm when we were done with our dinner. Always good food and energetic scene."

  • "My friend and I went before the theater. The food was the food was good not excellent but it was good. Our waitress was excellent and the drinks were very good. I thought the prices were okay but my friend thought they were a little bit pricey! Tables are pretty close together but the noise level was not too bad."

  • "I've written many detailed reviews for Parkside. I have nothing to add...Parkside remains the best all-round restaurant in the city. It's not the best in any one thing, but the sum of its parts outshines everyplace else...and I've been to all of them..."

  • "The four of us went to see wicked and arrived earlier than our reservation. It was our first time dining with them. They were completely ok with that and seated us right away. Everything was perfect from the service to the wine all the way though to dessert. Will definitely go back."

  • "Great experience! Creative and inventive menu, but not so wild that you don't want to eat any of the items. Delicious food and a really great ambience. Prices just right, too, where it won't break the bank and you can eat there more than once in your life!"
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "The food was very good, and so were the martinis, but it is just too crowded and loud in there. The tables are too close together and you feel like you are sitting in the lap of the person at the next table. You really cannot talk about anything personal because conversations are able to be heard by your neighbors. Not very intimate. Perhaps better for a group - not romantic."

  • "This was my second time here and I had the short ribs and dumplings and it was phenomenal! Service was excellent! Very easy to find and they offer valet!"
