We love coming to this restaurant. But, there are times when the food is not as good as it could be. Such was the case at lunch the other day. There was just too much butter and cheese in both of our dishes. I do find the chef heavy handed at times. It would be nice if they could lighten up the menu a bit.

So lovely to sit outside and be waited upon so kindly. The seafood chowder is to die for, and the risotto was good . The waiter was very attentive and did not forget us even though we were the only ones sitting outside. I love this place!!

It's always noisy here. We chose to sit in the back booth, but that's across from the kitchen doors.
I had poached salmon. It didn't seem fresh....not flakey as fresh salmon would be, and very little taste.
My companion had very nice looking lamb chops: 3 doubles, so a whole rack. They looked excellent and he enjoyed them very much. NZ wine was fine. No dessert. We were late diners but were glad the Grille
was still open. Reservation was honored well.

We had a very pleasant dining experience on a relatively quiet Tuesday evening. We ordered brussel sprouts as an appetizer and split them 5 ways. They were nicely seasoned and very tender. Everyone ordered the calamari with asparagus and mashed potatoes. Some of us removed the crust, if only to save calories. I would have given a 5-star rating except considering that it wasn't terribly busy, it seemed to take longer than expected to receive our salad and dinners. Other than that, everything was quite satisfactory and we'll definitely return. Would definitely recommend.

To celebrate our 54th wedding anniversary we were looking for a restaurant that provided good food in an intimate setting. Parkside Grille delivered both of these and a great deal more. Arriving early, we explained to the hostess what we were celebrating and the kind of atmosphere we were hoping to find. She guided us to a lovely outside table that offered both privacy and a beautiful view of the hills to the west.

And while both the food and the wine were excellent, what we will remember most was the quality of the service. Our waiter was warm and attentive with just the right touch of humor. He never hovered but always seemed to be there at exactly the right moment. Simply put, he was the consummate professional.

We were so pleased with the entire experience that at the end of the meeting we went inside to let the hostess know just how thoroughly we had enjoyed the evening. And while I do not recall having told her how long we had been married, she certainly did.

“I’m glad you had a great time,” she said. “Please come back and celebrate your 55th with us.”

Indeed we will.

Host told our friends that we hadn’t arrived yet even though we had signed in and were already seated — so they waited outside for 10 minutes until they happened to look for us. Server was inattentive and service was slow. Very noisy as well — not a good experience.

Ate outside under the redwoods. Some street noise but a nice setting. Alfredo, our server, was very nice and attentive. We had the White Prawns and risotto, Parkside Pizza and Asian Chicken salad bowl;all very good. Hot brownie with vanilla ice cream was very good..

Parkside Grill is my go-to place when I want a little bit of an up-scale lunch where quiet conversation is possible. The service is friendly and unobtrusive, the daily specials always offer something a bit unusual, and the setting, either sitting outside in a small redwood grove or inside in comfortable booths, is comfortable with a touch of elegance.

Nice place, generally good food. A little overpriced for what it is. Also, a $3 charge to split a salad (and we didn't ask for the split either), which seems petty.

The interior is nice. The staff is friendly. But ...

We came in at 6, were immediately seated, a waiter took our drink order and then took drink orders from an adjacent table of 12. He entered their 12 orders first into the restaurant's computer, served them first (even thought we arrived earlier), and a half hour later we were served our glasses of wine.
The restaurant needs to be more streamlined, in terms of service, especially since other wait staff were standing around doing nothing, just waiting for their tables to fill up.
I ordered a quesadilla, since I wasn't too hungry. It was a thick, floury quesadilla, filled with chicken and some kind of cheese that didn't really melt. Until I added the salsa and guacamole on top, it had been tasteless.
My husband had short ribs -- okay, pleasantly soft, but had no oomph. In other words, bland.
Not a real "go-to" place.

Great spot. We came with 3 generations - grandparents to 6-yo boys - and palates ranging from "meat warm, enough noise to not feel like we're sticking out, but not so much that the grandparents couldn't hear. Bravo!

Lovely, peaceful spot for lunch. Usually the service is good there, but this time was not. We had to ask four times for bread, the table was not ready, the waiter failed to double round to fill water glasses, etc. Not sure what was going on, but overall really good food and lovely atmosphere.

Four people had 3 different dinners - fish special (sole), lamb chops and skirt steak - and 3 desserts - creme brulé, cinnamon apples in puff pastry, and Boston cream pie. Everything was excellent. Service was, too. We were there with out-of-town guests, so appreciated that we could hear each other talk. Can't comment on "value" as we were being treated, so didn't see the check.

I think the Chef might have had an off night. I've eaten there numerous times and found my paella to be subpar with it's usual preparation. I will try a few more times to see if this is a consistence fall of in the food prepeartion.
