    Been to Southpark many times. Often good. Last night fish and chips for me and grilled tuna for my spouse, along with service was outstanding! Couldn’t be better.

    I took a guest who is visiting from out of town for lunch. We each ordered a Caesar salad with salmon -A very small piece of salmon but it was delicious. The bill with 18% tip (no drinks) was $98. I usually tip 20-25% but spending this much on a plate of mostly lettuce didn’t feel right.

    Southpark was once my #1 favorite restaurant in Portland. No longer - recipes were altered for the worse, and may great things have disappeared. The shrimp and grits - brilliant! has been replaced with a ketchup sauce that is inedible. The cocktails are served in mini-glasses that are ridiculously small. Some of the really innovative things have gone away.

    Pre-concert dinner for Oregon Symphony nearby (they were great!). Restaurant was not obviously crowded, empty tables, but people were being turned away or offered the oyster bar. We were on time for a 5:30 reservation; the table wasn’t ready. Friendly, but inept service. Training failure. A tiny amount of bread, no inquiry whether we’d like more. Happy to pay for it, if that’s the house policy. My companion liked the beer. Caesar salad was smothered in cheese, otherwise fine, although radishes really don’t belong. Fish and chips were very good. Good batter-fish balance. Nice shoestring potatoes. The mushroom risotto was an interesting attempt — arborio rice, tasty mushrooms, nicely sauced, not over-cheesed. Flaked cod was an ingredient. More than a garnish, but could have been a little more present, given that Southpark is a seafood restaurant. Still, I enjoyed it. Excellent coffee (no offer of a refill). Cranberry bread pudding w/candied citrus and toasted nuts on Chantilly cream a really fine dessert. A few false notes, but the food is good. We’ll be back when the Symphony plays.

    Southpark SeafoodResponded 1 day agoHi there, sorry to hear about our timing being off. Our staff do their best to be timely and effective. However, we are happy to hear about the food quality.

    Made reservations for the bar before attending a concert at The Schnitz. Always a great time, great happy hour food at a great price. I always get their spicy shrimp which isn’t too spicy, just very flavorful. This time it was on a block of polenta but I prefer it as it used to be with creamy polenta. Still delicious though! My husband got the burger and added pepper bacon and he loved it. Their dessert menu is incredible and we decided on the Chocotorta which is dulce de leche mousse, chocolate cinnamon cookies, coffee, hazelnuts and fresh whipped cream. It was amazing! We couldn’t even finish it! My husband is a dirty martini drinker and thinks they make one of the best he’s had. Their bartenders are very talented! Wine selection and prices are very good as well. Make sure you have a reservation even if you are sitting at the bar and your evening will be easy and fun.

    I had dinner with a friend sitting at the bar top before a show downtown. Our bartender, Matt, was wonderful. We let him know about our showtime, and he paced our service out perfectly so that we didn’t feel rushed. The food was excellent and both of our cocktails were delicious. A great spot to hit up before a show in the arts district.

    Sadly disappointed in South Park seafood. Oysters were excellent. Entrees - spicy shrimp (“shrimp and grits”) awful, barely edible sauce, should never be described as shrimp and grits- it was fried polenta. Beet salad the blandest I’ve ever in my life tasted vinaigrette. Other entrees lacking seasoning and sandy clams. Wayyy overpriced. Waitress was bored and uninterested but coming around every 90 seconds seemingly to “just get it over with”. And because of the bs policy for groups of 6 she got a ridiculous and entirely undeserved 75$ tip. Will never be back.

    Enjoy every second of the meal, our drinks both cocktails and mock tails were absolutely devine. We also got the smoked fish board which we left no crumbs, the smoked sturgeon was my favorite. I ordered the sablefish as my entree and the one regret I have is not ordering more it was absolutely delicious the fish crisped into perfection pairing so well with the kombu dashi, my partner had the King Salmon and he also deeply enjoyed the dish. Absolutely would recommend coming here!! We will for sure!!

    Must less enjoyable than prior experiences. The combination of the server mumbling and the volume in the room resulted in only making out possibly five words he spoke. There were seven different people, including the server, that brought/removed items from the table—no effort for service rapport or to have it add to the dining experience. The food was fine. Nothing delicious or memory-making. Disappointing the Ceasar salad lacked anchovies, though they were in the description. The highlight of the meal was the vanilla gelato.

    It was a Sunday evening and the place was packed. We arrived past our reservation time due to transportation woes. The restaurant was still able to fit us in. Our waiter was wonderful -- there when we needed him and yet not obtrusive. He improvised on my drink order and brought a small glass of honey to sweeten my whiskey on the rocks. My grilled tuna was amazing. My companion had a cup of clam chowder and a Dungeness Crab Roll and said they were delicious. We had tickets for a concert at the close-by Schnitzer Auditorium and our waiter made sure we got out on time. The music was a little loud for my taste but that may have been because we were downstairs where the wheelchair seating is.

    Southpark Seafood is our go-to, reliable, delicious, comfortable dining choice. I tried a new dish last evening and loved it; the seared ahi tuna entree. The pear-almond tart was another winner. Always a pleasure and so convenient for performances at PSU Lincoln Hall, the Schnitzel, and the Portland 5 Center for the Arts.

    I love the atmosphere at South Park, not noisy, tables are spaced comfortably. It's a great place to have dinner and good conversation. If you aren't into seafood, however, there aren't many options that are worth eating. Obviously a trivial point, since SP is clearly advertised as a seafood restaurant. But it's such a great space, it would be nice if it were a more eclectic dining experience for those of us who aren't big seafood fans.

    Go for the Brussels Sprouts side (it was $11.00 on the day we ate - 11/11/2022) as a starter. Incredible flavor, and a ton of them. They've been our starter since they added them to the menu back three or four years ago.
