This was our first dine-out experience (in a full service restaurant) in over a year. And so we were especially grateful for the fine service and cuisine. The menu was basically unchanged from the past, but the quality was first-rate as far as our palates were concerned.

We were promptly seated when we arrived and had nice heated lamps since we were dining outdoors. Our waitress was amazing and checked on us the perfect amount of times and our drinks, appetizers and entrees were served quickly and efficiently. We’ll definitely be eating here again the next time we visit Portland. :)

Grilled octopus and seafood paella were really good, we were glad to be back to this place. Service could have been slightly better though, but overall we enjoyed dining here again. Highly recommend a neat finish with their chocolate raspberry stack.

Our second time to Southpark in less than a week. This occasion was for our daughter’s birthday. We were seated promptly, outside of course. Indoor restrictions in place. We started with the oysters. Absolutely yummy. These were different types than the ones we enjoyed on Thursday. I don’t remember the names, but Southpark is two for two with the oysters. We each order something different. All our meals were yummy. Our drinks, desert and coffees were also tasty. Ice cold brew on tap. Something I really enjoyed too.
Our servers were friendly efficient and professional. Our meals seemed to arrive at the right time. We never felt rushed or overwhelmed consider the crazy amount of seafood we ordered. The restaurant was full on a Monday night , and the tables around us everyone appeared to be enjoying themselves. Kind of felt like a Friday night for me. I guess yummy is the best way for me to describe my experience at Southpark Seafood.

We made reservations and we were seated under an umbrella and it was raining. 4 guys a head of us with no reservation we’re seated at a table under an area that was covered. We asked for another table out of the rain and we’re given a table that was covered but it felt like an imposition to move us. Waitress was wonderful!

We decided after our Doc appointments to stay in town and check out a seafood restaurant my wife and daughter had enjoyed. I’m the seafood lover in this family, so I made a reservation, outside of course. We were greeted by the host and seated right away. Our server, Dejuan, was completely versed in the menu. I don’t think I’m overly obnoxious, but I kind of like to know certain aspects of the preparation of the meal. Maybe I am obnoxious. Well Dejuan was friendly and professional, and he was always there it seemed when we were ready, not the meals. If you know what I mean. We shared three appetizers and a main meal.
We have reservations for Monday. Had to change our seating location because of in door dining be restricted. Oh well. Take it from someone who enjoys seafood and a relaxing atmosphere you can’t go wrong trying Southpark out.

We recognize that life is difficult right now for those in the restaurant business. That said, the maitre d' was not that helpful though our server was fine. We missed the smoked fish that used to be offered. And the notion of using a phone to view the menu -- really? If nothing else, it is inconsiderate of older customers.

Always a great dining experience. Some of the best clam chowder I’ve ever had. One of the few fine dining restaurants open in downtown Portland during this pandemic. They have worked hard to stay open and deserve all of the business we can send their way!

My partner and i really enjoyed our date to Southpark Seafood. We were looking for somewhere more upscale, but with a dog friendly patio and found it here. We started off with a dozen oysters that were so good we ended up ordering the chilled seafood platter with another half dozen. Finishing with the Deschutes Haze IPA, we were quite satisfied with our dinner and overall experience. I'm looking forward to going back and trying the paella.

Very safe place to dine during COVID. Nobody even close to our table. Friendly, efficient staff as always. The only reason I only gave 4 stars for food was that they didn’t have their usual assortment of oysters but only one type, which were very good and fresh.
