    Our server didn't know anything about the wine we were looking at, but she went inside to ask the sommelier and conveyed his or her excellent description. We ordered two entries, a summer stew with calamari and tuna on a gazpacho, and they were both very flavorful. A very good experience.

    We both enjoyed ourselves. The service was above and beyond helpful and our waiter went out of his way to take care of our "wants". We both loved our food choices. Often I have stomach rumbles after eating but not this time. The food was tasty, tender and just plain wonderful. We both kept mentioning throughout the evening how wonderful our dinner was. Thank you.

    South Park Seafood is consistently excellent and has been for decades. We brought our visiting relatives to Southpark for lunch because we knew that they would experience Portland’s best in local cuisine. Southpark earned 5 stars in every department. Thanks so much.

    we had a table for 10 on a Monday night. As we were seated the hostess loudly told us we had 2 hours. Not a very welcoming message -- would have been much better if that had been communicated to us before the event (which was reserved/booked more than 2 weeks in advance). Turns out the restaurant was half full when we finished so unclear why were unexpectedly given this time limit.

    The cod with bacon was overcooked and the steak salad was great but contained no pistachios. Hope to come earlier in the day next time. It was too loud by 5:30.

    Yikes. My halibut was maybe 2 ounces and over cooked with no flavor. The entire dish had a horrible presentation, it looked like they brought me someone's leftovers. The manager did comp the meal and the service was overall good. My husband's salmon was also over cooked but at least it was a decent size! The brussel sprouts side is bomb good! But I probably won't be back unless it's happy hour for just apps.

    Didn't know what to expect when we made a reservation here. Picked the restaurant based on its proximity to the Paramount hotel. Really enjoyed our meal here. Martinis were perfect. Shrimp cocktail and clam chowder were some of the best that we have ever had. Shrimp were huge, firm, and served with a great cocktail sauce. The clam chowder had clams in the shell and was quite tasty. Main courses were halibut (with clams) and bacon wrapped cod. Side dish was grilled corn (served on the cob). Everything was cooked and seasoned perfectly. Desert was a whiskey peach upside down cake that could have been too sweet; but, was not (it was just the right sweetness). We will definitely dine here again.

    Food was solid, but just missed the mark for 5 stars. They had a signed card for our anniversary, which was a nice touch. Started with the ceviche- really good, but it was completely covered in the raspberry aguachile, making it hard to taste the fish. For mains, we had the salmon and ahi tuna entree salad. The salmon was done nicely and the ahi poke was nice pieces with hazelnuts- nice flavor. For dessert- blueberry crisp. We should have realized it would be hot, but on a warm summer day it really felt like it should be a seasonal winter item- it was piping hot!

    We were visiting in Portland and chose this based on the reviews. We were not disappointed. We were able to park nearby. The area was well lighted. We had a reservation and we were seated immediately. Our server brought water and warm bread then took our drink orders. We each had different menu items and none of them were disappointing. Each dish was prepared just as expected. The food was served hot and portions were plentiful. I recommend this and would return again.

    Food was excellent but service was slow and distant. For starters the table shared oysters, shrimp cocktail, and a cheese board. The oysters and shrimp were prepared well and very fresh, best we had in a long time. The cheese board was just as good. For main courses we had calamari and chorizo stew, grilled tuna, salmon, and bacon wrapped cod. All well prepared and flavorful. Deserts were chocolate cake with raspberries, upside down whiskey peach cake, and a strawberry cheesecake, all worth the visit by themselves. Their cocktails were also excellent. The service left a lot to be desired though. Well worth a visit based on rye quality of the food.
