I made this reservation for my husband to host a group of out of town colleagues. One was vegan....and he talked with staff and the chef prepared something perfect for him. Well done Southpark. Thank you

We really enjoyed our lunch. We were seated in a booth by the window and there is a partition above the back of the bench to make it more quiet and safer. The food was delicious. We haven’t been in a really nice restaurant in months and it was a wonderful place to have lunch and catch up. Our server was very attentive. We will be back soon.

No real flavor to the dishes. The octopus was a real let down.

Cocktails were excellent.

The service was initially ok, served us water, then a cocktail. Ordered appetizers and the food was small portions and the octopus was rubbery. We were not asked if we would like to order our entrees at all. At this time we requested the check and left.

The food was very good, especially the grilled branzino fish, the amazing clam chowder and the delectable desserts! The brussel sprouts were the only thing off the mark. They were drenched in a heavy gochujang sauce that overpowered the vegetable and rendered the dish inedible. The restaurant itself is large with high ceilings but it is void of atmosphere. The bar drinks and the wine selection were wonderful though!

I usually don't write reviews but I'm making an exception in this case. South Park Seafood is a beautiful restaurant with an interesting menu and solid service. Unfortunately, the food was not very good. Even their signature dish Paella was below par. I wish I could have liked the restaurant.

Lunch at Southpark was delightful! Everyone had great entrees…ceviche, fish and chinos, spicy prawns and grits , and a poke bowl!

A quiet table in the bar was a nice place for us…warm and private!

We saw the Egyptian show at the art museum, then enjoyed a late lunch after.

Jordan took great care of us and was able to accommodate my cow-derived dairy and gluten free diet. She was thoughtful, pleasant, and kind. This is one of our favorite spots and we have had consistently good food and service here. If things finally return to normal, a dedicated gluten free fryer and rice flour fish and chip batter would be perfection! Nice time, as always!

Southpark Seafood really seems to have invested their energy into providing a great and safe dining experience during these crazy times. The food is always so great. Our server was always checking on us. Water was delivered promptly by bus person and the hosting team is really great at managing arrivals. Have I already mentioned that I especially adore this team for offering house crafted non-alcoholic beverages? That is the cherry on top!

We visited Southpark Seafood for a birthday celebration, and left completely satiated. The menu offers such a diverse selection of flavours, the only way you'll know to stop the gluttony is by the warning moans from your stomach as you try to slide just one more delicious morsel into your mouth. The drinks are amazalicious. The staff are friendly and hospitable. And the ambiance... this place is great for a birthday gathering with friends, a romantic dinner or a night out!

Dont miss their clam chowder. It's some of the best we've ever tasted. We each got the bowl size and it came with several fresh clams in the shell too. Eat it for lunch with their delicious warm bread and you wont need dinner.

We had a wonderful time. Ricki was a pleasure to have as a server and gave us fantastic suggestions on the menu. We went with the Bacon Wrapped Cod and Sablefish. Both delicious. The flight of wine was enjoyed by my date.
