We have been to Parkside numerous times and the food is always excellent. The noise level is a bit on the high side, but it wasn't a deal breaker. There were two disappointing aspects to our visit. First, our service was far too rushed. We had the immediate impression that they wanted to turn over the table as quickly as possible. While enjoying a shared appetizer between the four of us, our salads were served and while eating our salads our entrees were served. You could deal with this at a casual chain restaurant, but we certainly expected better pacing at a fine dining restaurant. Regardless that it was a Saturday night, we should not have felt pushed to eat quickly and leave. The second issue was the restrooms. In the Parkside's defense, it was a Waterfire night, but there were several people waiting in line for the ladies room the entire time we were in the restaurant. It appeared people were coming in off the street to use the facilities and we were unfortunate enough to have a table across for the men's and lady's rooms. It got bad enough that we witnessed ladies jumping into the men's room to shorten the wait. Not sure of the answer on this issue, but it lessened the quality of our experience. We will revisit the Parkside since we do enjoy the food and overall ambiance. Maybe next time we visit in the summer we will eat outside on a non-Waterfire night.

Dined alone and that usually gets you lousy service but the waiter was terrific. Considerate - not rushing me. He knew his food. Name: Alexander. Food was fabulous. Every bite - hefty portions but every bite is perfect. Steak perfect. Mac & cheese. Brussel sprouts. Delicious.

We held a very special dinner for twelve here and the staff was incredibly eager to exceed our expectations. They did! The valet parking was so convenient and the ambiance of this restaurant is so charming and delightful. The food was EXCELLENT. From the monkfish special to the scallops, appetizers, and desserts, it was a culinary delight. We highly recommend Parkside Rotisserie & Bar and appreciate everything they did to make our evening one we will never forget.

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 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!
