The food was great and the server was friendly. The setting was nice and great for a date night or anniversary. The food was on the expensive side but that's expected for this type of restaurant. Finding parking was a huge downside.

Romaine lettuce recall still had Caesar salad being made with endive and mixed greens, so we opted for the crab cake appetizer which was perfect for sharing as well as delicious. Special entrée that night was grilled swordfish with a scallion cake and asparagus and presented very nicely. Double pork chop cooked to perfection but too huge to finish in one sitting. No room for dessert, just a glass of port.

Noise level was not energetic it was ridiculously loud and could not hear the waiter. seating was tight and felt like we were dining with the neighboring tables and front kiosk. Waiter was great but food service was rushed-- Each course was brought out before finishing the previous. Chicken with cashews had no cashews. In and out in an hour (and not by choice)

My wife and I went to Parkside with a couple friends for a celebratory golf dinner. Under our rather arcane rules, I won the trophy but bought the meal. We asked for a quiet-ish table and were seated at a nice table near the back of the restaurant.

Three of us ordered rotisserie chicken. I had a farfalle special. The meals were fabulous. The chicken cooked perfectly, moist but done correctly. The farfalle excellent! Atmosphere festive, good vibe but quiet enough for conversation, great food. We loved it.

The service was not great. We were never asked if we wanted a second round of drinks. Our water glasses were never refilled. I had to ask for the side salad that was supposed to be a part of my entree. We had to ask for silverware to be delivered to the table when our entrees were served as someone had removed all of it after appetizers were cleared.

An enjoyable culinary experience awaits you in an intimate but not cramped Parkside restaurant and bar with a well thought out menu and a friendly and informed staff. Plenty of parking options and valet parking as well in a great neighborhood for after dinner strolls.. weather permitting.

My entree was outstanding. Rich with flavor with pickled cranberries and maple syrup, brussel sprouts and pork medallions wrapped in bacon. Amazing! The wine selected by our waiter is now one of my new favorites. Loved it. We will be back. It is a bit pricey though but did not walk away disappointed.

Overall our dinners were excellent. My steak et frites - steak was great - sliced perfectly and medium rare as I had ordered it - The frites interesting and very thin -( didn’t have much taste) . Creamed corn side had a nice kick and delicious with toasted bread crumbs. The Apple Tart is always delicious and perfect to share for at least 3 people.

Friends in from NYC & they enjoyed the food and ambiance of the Parkside.
My wife and I had not been to the Parkside recently, so it was good for us to visit and enjoy a nice Sunday night meal.
Just a very nice restaurant, great service & food, totally worth it to have dinner and drinks.

The service there is amazing and the food is always great what we love about this restaurant is that it is super consistent and they have valet parking. Food is always good I have never had a bad experience there and the service is impeccable. I love the butternut squash scallop Gnocchi dish...It is amazing. Their crème brûlée is also to die for. By far my favorite restaurant in Providence Rhode Island.

This was our first visit and definitely will not be our last. Our server Cheryl was great. We had the following: grilled pizza for app - salty & delicious. Main courses were the halibut special & the filet special with a bacon cream sauce. Both cooked perfectly. Each of us had 2 glasses of wine that we paired with our app & main dish. Cheryl gave us some good recommendations. Unfortunately, we were so full that we didn’t have dessert which would’ve been the dessert special - pumpkin cheesecake! If we were not going out, we would’ve gotten it to go!!! Thank you Parkside.

Love this restaurant...The only issue was they were overbooked on reservations so we had to wait a half an hour for our table. Through no fault of the restauratn, Open Table was allowing reservations outside and it was freezing out so they had all of these reservations to accomodate as well.. The manager was incredibly gracious and paid for our bottle of wine...Would definitely go back again..
