Attentive service, good quality food, overpriced wine list IMO which pushes up your bill without necessarily adding value if you’re trying to keep to a #100 dollar budget for two people.

Great service. Food was excellent. We had an app, salad and dinner. We will definitely come back. The noise level was a little loud, but since people were anxious to get to Water Fire it was expected. Out the front door across the street Water Fire. A great place to eat and enjoy the show.

The food is always delicious. The calamari was jus5 about meltin you mouth. Had the grilled roasted cod - so flaky and cooked to perfection. Also the pork rack - flavors perfect and which ended up being another meal and then some. The staff is so knowledgeable and gracious.

I took my boyfriend there for his birthday on Friday, August 30th. We had a reservation for the outside tables and were lucky enough to have perfect weather! Not only was the weather perfect but, that night, the city was particularly quiet. The perfect ambiance for a birthday celebration. From first entering Parkside Rotisserie to the end of the meal, the service was exquisite! The food was cooked to perfection! Hats off to the cook and wait staff! We weren't rushed in any way and our waiter was attentive to us but not overbearing. The whole experience was five stars! I will definitely go back in the very near future! Oh, and that bourbon specialty drink was phenomenal! Perfect pour Bar Staff!

Some of the best food and service I've experienced in the area. The prices were reasonable, while still maintaining the aura of a fancy dinner. Would recommend for a date night. The boyfriend and I had drinks, appetizers, and entrees, (skipped desert, were far too full), and somehow still managed to spend lest than a hundred dollars! As someone that eats out often in Boston, spending $200+ for a fancy date night is quite common. Would totally recommend!

I have a home outside of Boston and in Newport RI., two areas that have very good restaurants, and I leave there to go to Parkside Rotisserie & Bar. The food is consistent and delicious. They always have new and exciting specials, the service is impeccable, the staff is friendly, and as soon as you walk through the door everyone is attentive to all of your needs.

Though we had reservations to be seated we arrived early and decided to eat at the bar. The two bar tenders made the evening even more enjoyable. This is my fifth time eating at the Parkside this year and I cannot wait for number six.

We made a reservation on a Sunday at 5pm because we had tickets to PPAC and wanted to be sure to be out in time. That worked out well except that they stuck us in the worst part of the restaurant. It was a lovely late afternoon and we were in this dark cave. I think the people with reservations should be in the actual restaurant and not squirreled away like an afterthought. Service was fine, food is consistent.

It was my niece's 16th birthday and I took her to Parkside before we went to Hamilton at PPAC. Our server was Alex and he made the experience a wonderful one. He brought my niece a very pretty mocktail in a martini glass and it was delicious! She loved it. I think more places should make delicious mocktails as something that can enhance your dining experience not just appease someone who doesn't want alcohol. That said, I had the Cosmo Fleur and it was light and refreshing and packed a surprising punch! My kind of drink!

We started with the charcuterie which was absolutely delicious. More than enough for two the board had an excellent array of cheese and meats. We had to be mindful not to plow through it as we were getting dinner as well

My niece ordered the Lemon garlic chicken and she loved it. I ordered the scallops over corn, red and green pepper risotto topped with frisee and it was PERFECTION.

I will definitely be coming back to Parkside. It made a great impression on my niece from the free valet parking to the food and the service. I was extremely pleased with the experience, myself. I travel a lot globally and l am boldly going to say that Parkside is up there with some of my most memorable meals.

Thank you, Alex and thank you Parkside for being part of a great night!

So it was a total disaster. The food was appalling and so many things were unavailable. The service was shocking and we poured our own drinks ourselves in a high end restaurant!
The mussels were full of sand and tasted off: The coq au vin was not what it was supposed to be (do they know how to cook it?) and clearly inedible. It was a cluster but absolute beginner errors for a well established restaurant.
Our waiter David ran outside after us then went on to chastise/berate us because he didn’t want to lose out despite his service and the food. (Again somewhat disconcerting).
Go across the road to Hemenways instead where you won’t be disappointed. A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. And it was a special celebration that was ruined.
Never again.

Overall our meal was great. It was pretty loud - it usually is - but the place was not packed and it was still really loud. I adored my Chinese Chicken, though the marinated chicken was a bit tough - not your usual melt-in-your-mouth chickie. The calamari was tender and fried crispy. The sauces were not to anyone's taste, though. Our honoree ordered the CBLT and found the chicken tough and hard to bite into. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their dishes. We'll come back, but this meal stepped you down a bit in our estimation, sadly.
