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.

The food was absolutely amazing. I had George's Scallops, might possibly be the best dish I've ever had. I do think that the bartender made us the wrong drink but I'm sure it was an honest mistake.

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.

I like the small restaurant atmosphere but the past two ro three meals here have not been up to their previous standards. I had the swordfish special with scallops. The swordfish was overcooked thus dry and the scallops undercooked. The potatoes and sausage where tasteless.

The other two members of my party had the sirloin steak special and filet mignon which they said were both good.

Parkside has always been a fine restaurant. The quality of food is excellent. Many time however it becomes so crowded that it becomes unpleasant and not enjoyable. My wife and I were against a wall with a very small table. If a fire broke out, we would all be in trouble. You could hardly move in there.

We all enjoyed our dishes, fresh and nicely presented. However we all felt there could have been a bit more seasoning. Great location, great ambiance and decor.
