The restaurant had implemented the required separation between tables and were very aware of the safety protocols. Our meal was very good and the baked to order desert was excellent. Our server was very good.

Did not appreciate being seated at a table watching people enter and leave restrooms. Had a reservation; not a walk-in. Manager had an “attitude”. Food great, server professional (a plus)...

The food was good. We went there for the dollar oysters, which was great. I got the special which was a pasta with pesto and fried chicken, it’s amazing. The only thing was that if you didn’t know it was $1 oysters you would be missing out because none of the servers told us or was advertised in the menu or specials.

Great dinner, we weren’t super hungry so ordered the calamari and it was out of this world. The pizza was ok, crust was a bit mush. Our service was fantastic. We tried to figure out one of the nearby statues and the manager was able to help, he definitely didn’t have to but he did. The server must have said something since she was curious as well. Highly recommend!

Food and drinks were great but some staff had no masks and most of the rest only had them covering their mouths. Back to take-out only

GREAT salmon off of the simple grill along with the roasted potatoes and asparagus. Good clean meal. My girlfriend also got the salmon and claimed that her salad was the best she ever had. Thank you Parkside Rotisserie, you rocked it.

We have been going to Parkside for years. They are trying their best to return to normal but just not quite there yet. I got the lobster roll. It was a special that night. Will not order that again. Basic hot dog roll, not much lobster, and way too much mayo. I'll go back again, but will be more selective when I order.

Took my partner here for a date and we were very pleased. The food was amazing. The service was fantastic. The ambiance was very cozy and it was surprisingly pretty quiet even though the restaurant was full. -
10/10 recommend and would go back again.

The food and location are excellent! Our server was very nice! Bartender looked irritable and my drinks were too strong . My biggest complaint is that compliance with COVID precautions were not adequate. Some servers including ours was not wearing mask correctly—nose uncovered. She told us we didn’t need to wear ours when she was at table—I don’t believe that is correct. Unclear if menus being wiped down —they were not disposable. Compared to other restaurants I feel they are not being rigorous enough with precautions.

Very pleasant even with the rearrangement due to the pandemic. Service was friendly and prompt. We shared a plethora of scrumptious things- fried calamari, grilled pizza with arugula, pomme frites and those glazed carrots were perfect because they were not too sweet. I hadn’t been in a long time but going this time makes me want to return!

Our first time dining out in a few months due to the Covid. We felt safe as far as direct contact. The staff wore masks and so did we. The garden across the street is such a beautiful few. Definitely returning!

My husband and I have been going to The Parkside for over 10 years. The food is consistently great. As is the service. When the State started to let restaurants open, The Parkside was our 1st pick!!

I can’t believe I’ve lived in RI all of my life and have never been here. Art, our waiter was amazing and the manager went out of his way to make sure my daughters 21st was memorable. The $1 oysters were some of the best I’ve ever had and the rest of the food was delicious as well. I would HIGHLY recommend eating here!

Oysters were fresh and delicious, they don’t have a kids menu but I called ahead and they will make specials if you have a little one dining with you. Sangria was SO refreshing!! Salmon was crispy just like I requested And our waitress was actually an acquaintance of mine so it made the experience even more enjoyable. It was my first time dining at park side and most definitely wont be my last ♥️
