Service was very spotty. Food was not cooked correctly.
Great find in Austin! Husband and I wanted to find a place close to the Vulcan Gas Works for the comedy show on Saturday and this was the perfect place. Food and service were great!!! We look forward to going back when we head back to Austin again.
Extremely loud! Had to shout to be heard in the restaurant. Chose for the amazing rooftop patio view of 6th street. Requested outside seating. Found out when we GOT there that outside rooftop seating is for functions only so I would take this OFF your recommendation for restaurants with an amazing view. Food was okay but not much for choice and way overpriced. Will not go back.
Great drinks and atmosphere. Great service. Food was average and drinks were really good. Asked for burger to be medium rare and it was well done and very salty.
Great deal on oysters/sparkling. Cait was fantastic!
This was an awesome experience! Super friendly, helpful staff and our server was so personable and made great recommendations, which we all thoroughly enjoyed! Our meals were delicious and the blackberry crisp was straight up fire!!!
We enjoyed every bite. The oysters, appetizers, fish entrées, and then followed by dessert - it was a real treat. The flavors and ingredients were unique and flavorful. We sat in a side room and were early birds so it was very quiet. It has a nice vibe and is open only later in the day I believe (5 pm opening). It is a casual atmosphere. Only side comment is the area on 6th street is not our style and rundown, but if you are going directly to the restaurant to eat and leave, we recommend this place.
Very friendly service and great food and drinks for happy hour!
It was not what we expected. We received our steaks raw and had to send them back twice. Poor service. We will not be attending again nor do we recommend it.
I’ve been to Parkside a few times but this is my first during the pandemic and was surprised at how much it’s changed. There were clear problems with service and communication because it seemed like everyone was doing everyone else jobs and it was hard to track down any waiter. They also sat us in the middle of two crowded tables when there were at least a dozen empty tables throughout the restaurant. The food was good but not great, as I remembered it. I don’t know that I’ll be back.
Overall phenomenal dining experience. Great service and great food. Thank you!
Went for Wednesday half off Champagne and oyster platter with my bf and only spent $70 for both; good value
We went early during the week. No problem gotta table, obviously. The menu is modest but cocktails are delicious.
Great spot to grab drinks and snacks before a Stubbs show!
We got there a little before 6 and was informed it was happy hour til 6 we order our drinks and entire meal and got everything half price! It was amazing our waitperson was friendly and attentive. We throughly enjoyed our meal.
Always love dining at Parkside! Wonderful oysters, good wines, the roast chicken was delicious.
The fries were good. The onion with the chicken was good. There was a flash of police lights throughout the room that reflected off of a mirror. The salads were entirely too salty.
Overall horrible experience. The bartender didn’t know what was in a Mexican martini, the server was blatantly rude and forgot to ring in our food, and the music was so loud I could barely hear my friend from across the table.
Parkside was a solid meal, with no issues with the food. I had the steak and frites and the steak was cooked slightly under what I ordered, but it was tender and flavorful. The fries were excellent. We also had oysters from the raw bar that were great.
The service was fine, but a little rushed. It felt a lot like the server wanted to get us in and out even though the restaurant didn’t seem super busy. Overall it was very good for the price, but not a meal I’m going to remember or talk about.
Your snapper was cooked perfect. Sides were good. Felt it was a good value.
I had the NY Strip and the steak tartar, the wife had the steak and frites. It was good. we'd eat here again. The cocktails were different and they stood out the most.
Very knowledgeable and delightful wait staff. The Cesar salad and steak and frites were perfectly seasoned. The cocktails were fantastic!
Great service, food, and all around good time.
Reserved a table for the top level with a view. Got sat in the back.
I did have to change my reservation several times due to my company, but they assured me I would have the same spot.
Unfortunately they have very limited vegetarian options
Steak was tough, ceviche and oysters were awesome. Overall a little pricey for the atmosphere/service
Fantastic food and service. Loved every sip and bite!
Food was great, service was good, noise was a little much.
Wed evenings at Parkside for their Oyster platters and bubbly specials are the bomb!
The menu is limited, but everything we had was delicious - the steak and frites and the buttered chicken were both cooked perfectly and well-seasoned. We had the steak tartare and it was flavorful and a generous portion. Our server was terrific and the atmosphere was fun - looking out at 6th Street while enjoying a great and tasty meal.
I do not think this restaurant is bad it is not just what my wife and I like from a flavor perspective. Service was very slow though.
Amazing food and drinks. Got seated right away. Busy, but not too loud. Very courteous staff. Overall, great experience and would definitely go again.
Joined for half off champagne & oysters
Service was amazing, as was the fish main entree.
The beef tartare was the one disappointing item.
Will be back.
The best oysters I’ve ever tasted! Bone marrow is a must! Will most certainly be going back soon.
The other reviews are fairly accurate great martinis served in cool glasses - great oysters - great crab fritters - great friendly service and tasty entrées
The Oysters were amazing! Hamburger was the Best I ever had! Great Customer Service😊
This place is amazing. I highly recommend!!!
Waited 90 minutes after our reservation for our food to show up before giving up and leaving. We did get one cocktail and a couple appetizers in that time period, but no one bothered to come check how they were or ask if we needed anything else or update us on our entrees.
Had family in town. Unfortunately, Parkside did not have enough wait staff. We waited 30m for drinks and further for appetizers. Oysters were excellent. Our entrees were variable. The wahoo-- which sounded amazing -- came out overcooked. We sent back. Came back raw. Will not dine here again.
