Parkside, a gastro pub in Austin’s lively downtown area is home to chef/owner Shawn Cirkiel. Located directly on Sixth Street it offers a casual venue for his unpretentious, but bold take on New American Cuisine. Offerings include a sumptuous raw bar—which often carries as many as 12 varieties of oysters. While the menu changes seasonally—even daily--diners can enjoy both dramatic dishes like seared scallops with butternut puree, jalapeno, and lime or comfort basics such as a cheeseburger or fried egg sandwich. Parkside accepts a limited number of reservations and reserves a section of the restaurant for walk-in guests each night. Seating is done on a first-come, first serve basis. All parties must be complete prior to being seated.

Wait staff was very friendly. Same with the people at the front.

Food was very good. Just the right portion for me.

Great place for a delicious meal right on 6th street. If it is cold, don’t sit near the front door.

We always enjoy Parkside. They have great raw food... Have a few oysters and then some steak tartare. Always pleasant. I really enjoy the attitude adjustment cocktail. We usually have the first drink at the bar and watch them shuck oysters. Somewhat casual and usually interesting people watching.

We chose it for a New Years Eve! It was pretty, exceptional and cozy at the same time! We loved the attention of all the staff, and the food was outstandingly delicious.

We were looking forward to our NY’s eve dinner at Parkside, having been recommended by our hotel’s Concierge. The restaurant was cozy and inviting, but the food and service was disappointing. It took over 30 minutes for our amuse biuche to be delivered. Our waiter was friendly, but it took him three times to get my appetizer delivered correctly. When it arrived, the peekytoe crab bruschetta was sitting on a cold piece of toast that you could barely slice through and it also lacked flavor. We were let down that the pasta dish consisted of only one piece of agnolotti (albeit a delicious one). Our sirloin steak was tough and about 2 inches long. The wine pairings were delicious and much enjoyed. For the price we paid, we did not think we received good value for what we expected to be a delicious meal.

Good, but fixed meal for New Years with very, very small portions @ $70 per person. Expected better for the amount we spent. My wife didn’t like the New York strip, and it was a very small piece, maybe 2-3 ounces. We were disappointed overall.

Excellent food and cocktails in a darling little restaurant in heart of downtown. We took two kids, still received great service, and the burgers were perfect for them.

We do not live in Austin but visit once or twice per year. We make a point of dining at Parkside every time we're in town. Everything about it is first-class.

We went for Christmas dinner and overall was a bit disappointed in the over all experience. The food was hit or miss. The beet and Cesar salads were both very good. The Blue Crab Soup tasted like roux and was warm at best. I loved the mac and cheese. The dessert we selected was very salty.

Food was delicious. Service was great, it’s a little noisy but otherwise very good!
