All was great except the seafood over linguine special where I had to crack open my own lobster! Take it out of the shell please! Why would I want to use my hands to eat in the city?

Hi Kathy: We are happy to hear you enjoyed your dining experience at Parkside, we apologize about the lobster, many prefer the full flavor of a lobster served in its shell. Next time, let us know and we will happily de-shell it for you. Kindly yours, Management

Food was OUTSTANDING. We had the dumplings, pappardelle and pork mignon. All fantastic!! Only small downside was the waiter. While very nice, he gave us a dirty wine glass, and some other tiny complaints. This would not deter me from coming back!! If you are a foodie, definitely come here.

Love this place but when you get bad service it really drags your night down.
Sat 30 mins after reserved time, 45 mins for an app and 1 hour for dinner, where 2 of the 4 meals ordered were completely incorrect - ate them any way didnt have another hour to waste being close to 10pm.

Mngr came over to apologize for time, nothing about messed up order; and took our drinks (4) off the bill. We would have had a few more drinks if our waitress ever came by the table- we literally saw her 3 times all night - no including the time I needed to get up and hunt her down to inform her of the screwed up meals.

All good while I though the noise level was moderate several of my guests complained they could not have a conversation. Note we’re not hard of hearing. I kind of like the level vs so quiet you can hear a pin drop.
Good as always great the filet special was awesome, no take homes!

I ordered short ribs because I hadn't eaten them at the Parkside before. They have changed the recipe to an Asian soup bowl of ribs, which I did not expect. Though it was good I would not order it again.

This used to be our go-to place before a show in the city. Unfortunately the quality seems to be on the decline. I had a pork chop I actually had to send back which I never do because it was too dry and the bread was stale

This was my second visit to Parkside Rotisserie. I really enjoyed it both times. I think the food is delicious and a little different. I like the atmosphere-it’s eclectic, casual and fun. The service was great, they were having $1 oyster night and I found a parking spot out front for free (but the rest of my table took advantage of valet parking). I’ll definitely go back.

There were two things that I wasn't crazy about - the noise level, hard to hear from husband from across the table. Also, the tables are pretty crammed in so there was hardly enough room to view the menu on the table. I knocked over my water glass with the menu when I was trying to read it. Could use a little more room at the tables! Otherwise, we loved it!

Had reservations for two a few hours earlier for 9:30 and arrived a little early, if not on time. Seated and ordered two drinks and four appetizers. The drinks were okay, but one of them was not spicy as described. The dumplings were good, the crispy shrimp wasn't crispy but overdressed with heavily salted sauce. The tartare was bland, and came with these odd waffle potato chips that remind me of ones stop and shop carries. The appetizers came out almost immediately by 9:45 and we tried to enjoy it before being rushed to order entrees because the kitchen wanted to close, verbatim. Did not feel welcome to spend more money because I was afraid the entrees would come out while we were still working on the appetizers which is unfortunate because our check was already $80 from what we only got to order. When we left no one at the bar or anyone else working besides our waiter at our table said thank you, goodbye or goodnight, and with this experience the small things like that do matter. Overall did not feel comfortable, and although being the last guests seated, it was known in advance we were coming and unsure why reservations would be accepted that late if that's the experience they are going to get. I am not a picky diner whatsoever, I love a whopper jr to a dry aged steak but this was a Friday night date we were looking forward to ending our week with and there are enough better local restaurants to support we should have chose instead.

We made a reservation and were able to sit right away on a Friday night. The waitress was friendly and candid and made some suggestions when we had trouble deciding on a meal. I had the coq au vin and was blown away. It was so flavorful and savory. I've already recommended Parkside to others and can't wait to go again

Unfortunately this was an off night for Parkside. We go often and on Saturday evening they were understaffed, we waited 20 extra minutes to be seated with a reservation and the food was subpar (overcooked dumplings, stale bread, no cheese on the Cesaer salad and their special that evening was extremely salty) and def. not up to their usual deliciousness. We left very disappointed this time around.
