Downtown Raleigh Restaurant located at the entrance of the Warehouse District, Parkside is situated on the corner of West Martin and South Dawson streets across from historic Nash Square. It was this urban park, one of the four original parks in downtown that inspired the name Parkside. Housed at street level and under the longest running neon restaurant sign in North Carolina you will find our doors, which have been the threshold to hospitality for this neighborhood for over one hundred years. Parkside believes in continuing this tradition in every way. From the warm red brick and reclaimed barn wood clad bar to the NC solid poplar tabletops, we want our guests to feel welcome. Whether you are sampling one of our 25+ beers on tap or enjoying our chef inspired locally sourced fare, your experience is our priority.

    The seating was quick with reservation. Food quality and quantity was very great. Pricing was on target for location and the quantity. The freshness was also a nice treat and the unique options made for an enjoyable experience.

    Table we were given was in back right corner. Very small space and no lighting! There were 4 of us, 3 of us very tall! Waitress wasn’t very polite, didn’t take my drink order - my husband had to chase her down. Seemed surprised we we’re gonna eat dinner. Very lacking in customer service skills that are important in this industry. The drinks were expensive and very, very small pours. My three other guests were fine with their food, but my steak salad was no good. I literally couldn’t chew the beef! The greens were okay, tho.

    Went for dinner on my BF Birthday. We had margaritas that were nice sized but because of the large size you couldn't taste the alcohol. We each had to order an additional shot for our drinks. I had the surf and turf (special). The steak was over cooked (requested med.)and tough. The waitress did ask if I'd like another, but I didn't want to wait and declined. My BF had the prime rib that was also over cooked (requested med rare). Our mash potatoes were dry. I really wanted to love this place. I did love the pretzel and our waitress was really nice. I will go back and try something other than beef.

    Me and my husband went here for brunch. The food was really good and the service was also fantastic. We got the fried pickle spears and jalapeño and bacon deviled eggs for starters which were really both really good. For main dishes I got the braised short rib benedict and my husband got the prime rib scramble bowl and both were fantastic. They definitely give your money’s worth as well which was nice. The service was also fantastic. The waitress was great about keeping our waters filled and our food came out fresh, hot and quick which was pretty impressive since they were super busy. However, it was really really loud, to the point where me and my husband couldn’t really talk much to each other, and we were packed in super close to the other tables. Normally that wouldn’t be an issue but the gentleman seated at the table to my one side kept open sneezing our way while we were eating which was gross because of how close the tables were packed together. Feel like it would have been a better experience if we had been in a booth so there wouldn’t have been someone that close on the side.

    The restaurant was pretty full but we had a reservation. The server knew we were chatting so she wasn’t too pesky. There was a full bar so everyone could have what they wanted. This was true of the menu as well. The food was fresh and everyone enjoyed their meals. It’s a low key restaurant.

    Generous servings resulted in take-home leftovers for next day's lunch. Salad nicoise was well-made with a delightful avocado dressing. Meatloaf and fried chicken entrees were good comfort foods. Overall the atmosphere is casual and chill, but so was the temperature in the restaurant. We had to put our coats on, and actually felt warmer when we walked outside! A good neighborhood restaurant with a good beer selection.

    Nice place casual atmosphere nice waitstaff and attentive. Food was however not good. We have been before and the burgers are great but we tried the meatloaf and ribeye steak sandwich this time. Unfortunate at best. Meatloaf was very soft sweet and covered in gravy not a good combo, either by itself fine but together not good. Left all but a couple bites on the plate. The mash was good and the green beans were tasty, the steak sandwich was more like a Philly cheese steal than a ribeye sandwich. Sliced way to thin over cooked and large piece of onion skin where caramelized onion should have been. Overall not a great experience. As I said the burgers ate great and the fries are very good too so just stick to the bar food as the more gourmet and comfort food items do not seem to be there Forte. Happy ears. 😊

    Went for Christmas Eve dinner, we’re were seated right next to the door that does not close properly and it’s 20degrees outside so we were constantly get cold blasts. The staff did explain tat a concrete uprising had affected the door and it would have to be replaced. Our waiter would disappear at times or would stand talking to the hostess while we were waiting for some service. Food was good and we enjoyed the meal.

    Fantastic meal. We had the meat and three which was grilled salmon. It was fantastic. They always cook the salmon perfectly. The sides are delicious too. We had the mac & cheese, tomato bisque, salad, black eyed peas and green beans. My only complaint would be that everything could have been a bit hotter. Servers are always so nice.

    Service and food are always awesome. I always get the chicken and waffle sandwich, but tried the breakfast burrito this time, and was glad I did. And the tater tot hash was great too. My husband had the prime rib bowl, and thoroughly enjoyed it. This place has become a regular for us lately, and for good reason.

    We went for the chicken and waffle sandwich - amazing - have the side of bacon and Mac and cheese with it. Service was Amazon and fast. Pay the 3 bucks and park in the lot / you will have difficultly parking. Suggest going between 1:30-2 if you want brunch and lunch options. Also quieter. Make the trip it’s worth it!

    Went for a graduation dinner and it was great for a large group, we had about 6 people. The food was phenomenal and the service was wonderful. They were unfortunately out of the goat cheese dates appetizer, but apparently it’s very good. So if they have it when you’re there, get it. We had wings, steak frites, a Niçoise salad, fried pickle spears and a few drinks. The drinks were great and balanced, the food was all perfectly cooked and delicious. They even surprised us with a slice of pumpkin cheesecake for the graduate.

    Our server wasn’t the most attentive, and it took us forever to get water on the table, and even longer get the drinks we ordered, and rarely checked in for things that were missing. The food was very delicious that’s the only reason I’d return.
