Very elegant venue and wonderful service. My husband had the rack of lamb which was scrumptious. My seafood risotto was chock full of lobster, cobia and shrimp and was very tasty. We splurged for dessert and the creme brulee and "chocolate bars" were amazing.

Perfect place to celebrate our anniversary.

When you are planning to take your beloved spouse to dinner on her birthday you only want the very best, that describes the Parkside Grill. The moment you arrive until you depart you become the staff's center of attention and they deliver in a big way our Waiter Zack was great, attentive, knowledgeable about the food, the Chef, the restaurant and the downtown St. Petersburg area. If you ever find yourself in the downtown St. Petersburg do stop in to the Parkside Grill you'll be treated like Royalty and
The food itself is as amazing as the service.

Our server was terrific. The meal was solid as it always has been when we eat at Parkshore. A really good meal and an overall very pleasant experience. Wonderful whiskey list as well. You have to request the list. It’s much more extensive than I was aware. Your staff should really make sure people are aware of this list.

Had a great birthday lunch after going on a Segway tour of the St Petersburg waterfront. Our server Thomas did a great job and the food was really tasty. Great outside dining area except next to the public walk where smokers would pass obliviously exhaling right over your table. Maybe next time I’ll ask for a table closer to the street or the building, not next to the pedestrian walkway.

While the food is very good, it’s just plain over priced. Aside from the parkshore salad, I’ve never left a meal there thinking, “Man, that was great!” Never felt it was a bad night, but for the price I want great.

Took my wife there for anniversary/Mother's day lunch/brunch. It was really busy for Mother's Day as expected but with reservation we were seated immediately. Service was very attentive. Our server was Troy and he was excellent. Attentive and professional. We had a roasted chicken dish, seafood grill and shrimp cocktail. All were very good and roasted chicken was flavorful and cooked perfectly. We were also given free dessert, Creme Brulee because it was anniversary and very appreciated. My wife loved everything. We spent about $110 for 2 meals and appetizer. We used the valet to park which was fine but because they were so busy it took sometime to get car on way out. It was understandable though because they were so busy and seemed a little understaffed with parking. Overall though, I would highly recommend. Good food, nice ambiance and location.

I go to Parkshore at least twice a month. It is usually my favorite! On Mother’s Day, however I was very disappointed. Started where we couldn’t get a table outside. The hostess said that I didn’t make a res for outside and I reminded her that you can’t. No problem. We sat and was immediately waited on. Nothing on the brunch menu was the same. You could only order off the dinner menu other than brunch. My mother wanted to go there for her favorite which was not available. No cheese grits either (one thing they are famous for). We ordered the lobster Benedict. My father the steak and eggs. Mom’s eggs came out hard boiled. Had to send back. The flavor didn’t blend and didn’t taste quite right. The portions were tiny! My father asked for the steak medium rare and it was well done. Mind you this was 10:45 in the morning! Help those who got there when the chef was tired. Like I said, I go there often and will continue to but this $100 meal for 3 (with no drinks ordered) was awful.

Unfortunately, their Mother's Day brunch was uninspired. For some reason, they figured to limit their brunch menu to 5-6 items and then added their dinner menu. There wasnt a single sweet option on the menu. Why not keep your normal brunch or go add your special brunch menu to their lunch menu? I had the shrimp and grits and it was the firm time I've ever seen it prepared with fried shrimp. Overall, it was a very lack-luster dining experience.

One of the best lunches we’ve experienced in FL. I randomly chose this restaurant and was extremely happy with the food and service.as was my husband (who is very picky about restaurants). I had the crab stack, which was delicious...crab was marinated in a lime vinaigrette and stacked with cucumber, avocado and tomato fresh, flavorful. Just right for a healthy lunch ...followed by cheesecake with fruit. Delicious! My husband had a chicken curry salad..delicious. Our server was attentive and professional. We’ll definitely return.

Parkshore Grill is simply my favorite St. Pete restaurant. The food is good and unique without being silly. The staff is always professional and helpful. Once a waiter even discouraged me from ordering a specific cocktail. Both the inside and out are comfortable and not at all stuffy. Very nice.

This was our first visit to this restaurant.
Honestly, would I go sgsin? Yes, but it was not a great experience. There are better restaurants in St. Petersburg.

The food was visually appealing (seafood grill) but the quantity was smaller than anticipated.
It was relatively expensive based on prices of comparable restaurants downtown.

Nice selection of wine!
