I informed the waiter that I have a food allergy to lactose. This apparently was not noticed by the chefs as my dinner came drenched with a butter sauce. He immediately apologized and about ten minutes later the main course was brought back. I think that the second attempt had milk or something in the polenta which accompanied the Cod. I became very ill shortly after and had to go home. I am still sick the next day.

Ate there last night (7/24/2021). Food was great, highly recommend the Statler Chicken Breast, one of the best meals I've ever had. Steak Frites was good, though the fries could use some truffle oil. Charcuterie and Cheese was a terrific appetizer. Service was ... well a bit rough around the edges. Our waiter was very personable when he was around, but we could done with a little more attention (drinks refilled, etc), and an explanation of the Charcuterie would have been nice. Price was a bit on the high side, but not inconsistent with other restaurants in the area. All in all, a great meal with a need for maybe a little more staff training (I know a lot of places have had to hire new staff, it felt like that was the case here). We'll be back.

The food was fabulous and flawless. 5+ stars there. The service was average plus. The server was pleasant and checked up on our table. However really more 3. 5 to 4 stars there. Just a few issues but I think it’s because the server was new. We still had a pleasant time and the server was pleasant. Suggestion, educate servers as to what they are serving. .

Restaurant week had a menu I loved! Fried oysters on a salad and a seafood stew with octopus. Not everyone’s choice but definitely mine.

Excellent food—I had crispy salmon with lentils which was quite good. My only quibble is that they don't offer any non-dairy alternatives (such as soy or almond milk) for cappuccino.

The staff was excellent and accommodating. House cocktails with unique twists on traditional drinks. The food was prepared and plated beautifully. Nice touches like infused olive oil and fresh baguette for the table. The atmosphere sort of reminds me a bit of a movie set in NYC from the late 80's or early 90's.

I have been going to Parkside for 10 years, and this may be the last time I go. I had clients in from Montreal, and the food and service was horrible.
We arrived at 6:30, our waiter never gave us bread until I asked 3 times, our apps came out randomly over the course of the next 1/2 hour. Our entrees didn't get served until 9:00. We selected from the restaurant week menu and were never offered our desserts. My wife's duck was rubber and unable to be eaten, my ocotopus dish as rubbery and not cooked through, 3 clams were served to me unopened.

This spot is alright as a lunch spot for people who work or live in the area and need a place to go, but the food quality is not good. It’s low quality food that tastes fine but the prices are high for what quality you get.

What an amazing little spot! We were visiting for the weekend from Boston and Parkside was right around the corner from where our Airbnb was. The food was FANTASTIC - everything was super fresh and so tasty! We also absolutely loved the watermelon sangria. And the best part was the cute anniversary dessert that our waitress surprised us with! It was super unexpected and was a really nice touch. Overall, our expectations were exceeded by miles! Thank you everyone and we can’t wait to visit again :)

The food was fantastic including the very local oysters for a dollar apiece. All food excellent excellent friendly service. The only drawback it’s a dark place. I didn’t notice any windows thinking back on it. And it turned out to be a beautiful evening so it’s too bad we were kind of deprived of it. But overall the experience was excellent. It’s a little expensive but really worth it

This was an average luncheon, there were no surprises, the food was uneventful, the quiet was appreciated. The place was nearly empty, and to our dismay the only other group that came in was sat right next to us, will never understand that practice.

Such a fantastic time dining in the Heart of Providence at Parkside. My guests and I loved everything. The atmosphere, management, service, cuisine & cocktails. I highly suggest starting with some appetizers. The crab cakes are divine. The Cubano sandwich was a favorite of my guest. The roasted chicken on salad is is delicious. For cocktail I had an Empress AVIATION cocktail. The owner and manager were extremely friendly and hands on with their team. Great to see a restaurant that is this attentive.

Our waitress was amazing and super attentive. She even gave a free round of drinks because we weren’t crazy about our meal. She really didn’t have to do that but wanted to make sure we had the best experience. The ambiance is very nice and you have the option to sit in it outside (during warm weather. A great place to grab lunch and work or go for a nice dinner.

Ambience was very satisfactory
Customers all seemed to be in a great mood and I believe that was partly a result of the friendliness of all waitstaff.
Food was very good as usual. I have been there many times.

The restaurant was very loud and crowded with people. Our tables were so close together you could hear everyone else’s conversations as well. The service was the best part of the place, our waitress was very attentive and friendly. The food however was very subpar! There was a good presentation on the plate but the taste of all our meals were very bland and not very great. Overall very very expensive for what you are actually getting.
