The food was delicious, however, I am gluten intolerant / Celiac. I specifically asked if the Black Grouper dinner special was gluten free. Whoever advised our server Samantha that it was does not understand that every ingredient must be gluten free. Something in this dish contained gluten ... a spice, a thickening agent or cross contamination in food prep. I have eaten here in the past with absolutely no issue at all. High end restaurants typically are aware of food allergies and can accommodate. Disappointed hours later ....

Overall it was a nice experience. Our waiter seemed in a hurry and never asked if anyone wanted an appetizer, salad.or side dish. It was also our fault for not saying something. At the end of the night it seemed like an incomplete dining experience even though the food we ordered was very good. Hard to explain.

Our family went to Parkshore Grill for my birthday dinner. My husband and I had the Seafood Risotto, which was fantastic. There is seafood in almost every bite. My son had the steak, garlic mashed potatoes and rainbow carrots, which he enjoyed. The service was great and we were seated quickly, which was nice. Overall, it was a great evening and we will definitely be back.

We visited ParkShore Grill after a trip to the Sunken Gardens. We sat out on the Patio which was very pleasant. We had excellent service. The food was average though. It would be great if the chef used a bit more skill to add flavour and interest to the meals.

Great food and ambiance. Menu has a very nice variety. Dining experience was lovely with the exception of our server 'Ken'. And it might keep us from returning any time soon. We thought he was just quiet, but soon realized he clearly was not interested in serving a gay couple (2 women). We know this because we saw and heard him interact with other tables and his enthusiasm and courtesy was very different with other patrons (3 parties with male/female couples). Ken never checked on us after apps and entree's delivered. When I finally got to order coffee after dinner, he simply pushed an emoty cup and a metal pitchet of lukewarm coffee near me, but left all of the dirty dinner dishes in front of us. He proceeded to regale next table with wine presentation + pouring. I had to ask him to clear plates so I could have my coffee in front of me. He scraped plates at the table before taking them away, while at the same time putting the leftovers into styrofoam!
This is not just a complaint about poor service... it is about receiving poor service... different...while observing others receive much, much more engaging and respectful service from the same staff person.
There are many great restaurants in St Pete. Perhaps we need to spend our time and money elsewhere. Bye Ken.

We are locals and big fans of Park Shore - we LOVE the filet mignon -best steak for the best price in St. Pete, hands down. It is the most consistent place we have been locally. Laura or Aaron are our usual servers and they are both fantastic. We highly recommend Park Shore!

The place is beautiful and in a great location. Kate, our server, was wonderful. Our appetizers were amazing but when the entrees came everything went south fast. My wife ordered beef wellington and the meat was over cooked and the pasterie was raw. Sent it back and it came back with the meat perfect but pasterie was still raw. I had the pork chop which was good until I was half way through and noticed it was not cooked all the way through and was raw! But to be fair they did not charge me for the pork. Then to add insult to injury, I went to use the restroom before we left and they were out of hand towels. Unreal.

Unfortunately on this visit the food was mediocre. My lunch partner had a pork chop that was just tasteless. I had a very expensive piece of grouper. Same thing. If not for the sauce on it, nothing had any taste. High price, no flavor.

very good food but everything was ala carte. For the price you pay you should get 2 sides and a salad.
We got 2 appetizers, 4 drinks, 3 entrees, and 1 dessert. With tip it came to a even $200. So once or twice a year at most. But everything was very good.

My husband and I celebrated our second anniversary with Parkshore Grill driving more than two hours to do so. It is always worth the trip. The ambiance is romantic and the servers always treat us with respect and kindness. The food is delicious and my hubby always does the Tyson 3 course experience which always makes him happy to try new flavors. They gave us a darling dessert for our anniversary and even modified which one due to my food allergies which I appreciate. I always reccomend parkshore grill to family and friends who visit that area.
