The meal was superb and the service was amazing. Our waitress explained the menu very well and excellent recommendations. She checked on us often and made sure we had everything on time. I had the halibut and clam chowder both very tasty and made with the freshest ingredients. Super delicious. Also, it was my friend’s birthday and they comped the very delicious desert. Loved the staff and especially our waitress.

Food was good as always. Love Brussel sprouts , beet salad & crab. Desserts were disappointing as was our service. Server seems “off his game”- several guests were drinking water only & had to keep asking for refills, had a hard time catching his attention. Seemed liked the gal next door was more responsive to us. This is probably our 4th or 5th visit.

The food is remarkable - a bit pricey but worth it. Love the service - love the boards - love the fact that you can make a reservation.

The white shrimp as an appetizer was outstanding as well as the tomato/peach salad and the squid ink pasta with clams!

This is one of our Portland faves; we take out-of-towners here to show off our adopted city. The “tasting menu” was a nice touch, added since our last visit. The service and food were superior, as always.

We love it and have been there many times – as part of our Oregon Symphony dinner & music combo.Sad that Southpark dropped the Black Cod dish from the menu. Hope this is only a seasonal change.

The food and service were excellent, as always. And staff was aware of, and accommodated, my party’s time constraints due to an event we were attending after dinner. The only negative is that it was quite noisy for conversation in the upper dining room.

Very slow service and mix up when we tried to pick up our desserts after our evening event. No apologies from the staff ... just excuses. Disappointing.

Being out of town we chose this restaurant because of the five star reviews

food was excellent, prepared well and presented equally so

It was the lack of service that drove the final score down and would seriously hamper us to return

First of all we were offered bread in the beginning of the meal and it didn’t arrive until the appetizers were served and ONLY after we asked for it ourselves
appetizers arrived nearly 25 minutes after we sat down while the
restaurant was nearly empty
Our main courses arrived during the consumption of appetizers and when we question the timing and the fact the food will be cold by the time we finish, the waiter argued with us to the contrary (?!?!?!)

Enjoyed dinner here on a Sunday night with my husband and returned the next day for lunch. Everything was delicious. Service was great. When I was leaving after lunch a couple was reviewing the menu outside and I recommended they go in or return for dinner. Excellent find in Portland during our long weekend visit.

Great farm to table options. Bright contemporary setting. Staff was attentive and prompt. Chicken liver pate app was light and tasty, just needed a few more crackers. Salmon was fresh, fried chicken and Brown Betty were a good combination. The star was the Brussels sprouts

Our server, Jordan, was as always awesome! Food is so fresh and made with such creativity but never forgetting about taste. So yummy that you have to sop up every sauce and dressing with bread to get the last drop.
The cocktail list could use a bit of improvement in my opinion.

Delicious food, friendly service. We went for lunch for my husbands birthday, he had the clam chowder and a crab roll both of which he said were very flavorful. I had the pepperoni pizza, we had the most delicious upside down peach cake desert (served with a candle on it) on the house (the desert) because it was my husbands birthday, and at an average cost. It was so good, we will definitely go back.

Food is a joke. This is not even close to fresh seafood. Iv found/fresher better oyesters and scallops in Colorado. Pretty sure the sickness Iv felt for the last two days came from me eating there two days ago.

I booked a reservation here because it was my boyfriend's birthday and we were visiting from out of town. My boyfriend makes it a habit to eat crab on his birthday so we came here specifically for the crab.
and because the website said 20% off if you dine here on your birthday.

To start we had bread and a salad, which were both great. For the main entree we ordered the seafood tower and added a side of Brussels sprouts, which were AMAZING, we both agreed the Brussels were the best part of the meal. The seafood was alright, we were expecting the crab to be warm and come with butter or something to dip in but the crab was ice cold and the only dip was tartar sauce. Our dish also included prawns, scallops, and ceviche, none of which were great enough to recall the taste.

Lastly, I had mentioned on Open table and to the hostess upon arrival that it was my boyfriends birthday, but I went to the bathroom after finishing the entree and when I came back our table had been cleared and the check deposited. My boyfriend is rather modest and insisted he was full and did not need dessert but I was rather disappointed that dessert was not offered and our check did not include the 20% discount that is advertised on the website.

Every couple of years we make it to Portland, and we look forward to the great seafood at Southpark. Smartly-crafted cocktails are a big plus. Our waiter was superb; he offered spot-on oyster recommendations for the seafood tower entree.

Southpark is one of our favorite places to eat when we are downtown. After an afternoon at the art museum (and before a concert at the Old Church) we had an early dinner. A couple of cocktails and good seafood is all you could have asked for.
