Excellent service and I love the new menu. Our server was so friendly and knowledgeable.The only suggestions I have is for the restaurant to invest in a couple of wine chillers

The food was absolutely excellent! Our server however, did not take care of us. She forgot something that I ordered and never mentioned it again. She was too concerned with getting us in and out. I noticed that that was her demeanor towards all of her customers. She was only fast when she gave us the check!That really took away from the experience because the food was outstanding. However, we will give it a try again.

Service was slow! Yes, I understand it was the beginning of a shift, but that is when it should have been the BEST! Our person did not even check on us when our food came out to us. We had to ask a person to find our person to get our check. Also, our app was on the cool side (almost cold), should have been piping hot for a fried item (fried green tomatoes). But of course, couldn't have our waitress ask us how we were doing. Another waiter brought us our food, not ours. It was piping HOT (only the shrimp portion of my shrimp and grits) The shrimp part was AWESOME, but the grits NOT. They don't tell you that the Gouda grits is thick. There was not enough sauce to make it worth while to even eat the grits, since it was so gluey and thick. Husband said his plate was okay, but he had much better. For a place people had raved about, I really wanted to come, but I just got disappointed instead. It will be hard to come back for a while.

I have been to Parkside 7 times and always had a great meal and a wonderful experience so when it came to choosing a place to go for my wife’s birthday it was an easy choice.

This time it was not our normal wonderful experience. We were there at 12:50 for a 1:00 reservation. We were seated quickly and our server was prompt and courteous.

Our orders were in at 1:10 and our food arrived at the table 1 hour and 20 minutes later. There was never a good explanation as to why except that the server said that the kitchen was struggling. Some of the food came out cold and the eggs ( it was brunch) came out hard outside like it had been under a warming light for half an hour.

We will try again. But this was a bit of a black mark on what otherwise has been our favorite local spot.

Love the new menu! Steak was cooked to perfection but had tendon running through it that detracted from overall quality - however that being said - the food is always flavorful and the drinks are creative and great. Will continue to be a customer for a long time.

I would def go back here for dinner. Unfortunately, my steak was overcooked when asked for medium rare, but I didn’t complain. I am sure they would have rectified the issue if I had brought it to their attention. The apps and everything else were fantastic. Overall it was a win. Ambience was trendy and up to date. We did have to wait quite a while after being seated before our server got to us, but we were with some good company and didn’t mind. Just an observation. Once we got started with our waiter and our order was taken, service was perfect. Meal for my wife and I and a bottle of wine was right at $110. Bottle of $50 wine+app+2entrees. Cant remember the name of wine, but it had a lady with a red dress on the label and was a Cab. It was really good. The app was the gouda cheese - super good. Friends got the fried green tomatoes - good with really good sauce. Wife got Salmon - super good and already told you about my steak.

My wife food came out cold and my plate was warm but not hot. The desert was not what I thought it should be. $8.00 for just three spoon full. I could not believe it. But just not what it should be at a nice restaurant should be. Spent over $100.00 dollars. Sorry but that is what happen. I think it could be a little better. Thanks for your time. Would I recommend Parkside District to a friend? Yes because I don't think the first visit should be the last. Every one deserve a second chance. Thanks have a nice day.

I would suggest the hostess to be up front at all time. Walked in there and no one was standing up front which makes the customer feel unpleasant that there’s no one up front.

We were there for family birthdays (mom & older son). This was our second time eating here. Drinks were fabulous, food was excellent, service was very good. We ordered the gamut, from burger to she-crab mafaldine to braised boneless short rib to scallops. So yummy! We’ll be back. 😊

Ambiance was amazing. Our server was the best! We ordered the lamb and she crab, along with oysters and macaroni. It was all so delicious! The PD Tini is amazing — I had two of those. And, the bill was less than we had expected! Overall, we paid $165 (including tip). Our anniversary was perfect! We will recommend and visit again!

Our server was attentive at all. It appears that since we were a party of 8 there was no need for her to make sure our dinner and experience was excellent. The food was average at best and as for as for the vale. It wasn’t!! 1 pork chop for $29. It was my first time and definitely my last time.
