We have never been disappointed in this restaurant in the 6 years we've been dining there. Glad to see they are able to maintain the standard despite COVID.

We asked how spicy a dish was. The waiter was honest with us, which we appreciated as spicy just doesn’t agree with us.

In these Covid times, Southpark's high ceilings and ventilation are an added bonus to their great service and delicious food.

I'm guessing it's due the COVID-related supply chain issues but the entrees seemed particularly boring for a fancy seafood restaurant. Burger and steak? You can get that anywhere, show us your seafood skills, you're in Portland.

Portions were tiny. King Salmon was less than 3oz and served skin up. My whole Brazinno fish was charred black on outside, it gave the whole fish dish a burnt flavor when I dug into it to retrieve fish meat. They put pasta in their Choppino seafood soup. Not traditional. Oysters were good. Peanut butter chocolate stack dessert was good. It was our anniversary and they didn’t give us a free dessert like many other higher end pricier restaurants. Bread at beginning of meal was stale and terrible. And probably the most annoying thing…was the small plates they served our food on. Plate should be large enough for food to fit on without food sliding off onto table when you eat it.

I loved this place but my last 2 meals not so much. Heavy oily breading on fish and soggy chips (fries). Cole slaw smothered in mayonnaise. Not going back anytime soon.

For what it was built up to be the menu and presentation seemed dated pre-21st century. Food was fine but nothing was memorable. Service was a little slow.

In town for work and remembered a great meal I had here a few years back. Not the same this time around. Our server was wonderful. The food however was not. I will say the oysters and clam chowder were delicious.

Reservations give you such a leg up on getting a table during these trying times; No wait and ushered right to our table; Plus a generous 15 minute allowance which came in handy as we were coming from a matinee that went a tad long. Hostess; Busser and server were all commendable; Efficient and personal and professional. Food is always so good; Our favorite dish hands down were the Brussel sprouts. Oh and THANK YOU for having hand-crafted non-alcoholic bevies available!! Soda water and drinking vinegar spritzers were awesome!

We had a reservation at 7:15. We were seated promptly in a booth. A little surprised that we were not asked for our vaccination cards as the prior two restaurants we dined at in Portland did require them. Also, not pleased to see that when people came in the front door not wearing their mask, or with the mask down around their necks they were not asked to put them on. I appreciate that restaurants have taken a tremendous hit the past year and do not want to be the mask police, however, they are going to loose a large segment of the population that wants to feel secure while dining. The service was understaffed which was understandable, the food was fine, my meat cooked exactly right, my friends fish was perfect. Great drinks also.
