Imagine parking your car under California redwood trees! This restaurant has a really cool location and the dinner was very good. We were dining with friends so I didn't pay enough attention to the food to describe every dish, but the wine pairings were excellent. I remember the beet salad was very tasty. Wish I lived near this place!

The food was fantastic. The spicy chili, fried calamari and the chocolate cake were outstanding. The location is pretty cool. The place is secluded so it is quiet and romantic. They have outdoor seating as well as indoor. The weather is most of time mild/warm so it is worthy eating outside

The Potola Valley is a rural area close to Menlo Park and Stamford and to find this lovely restaurant is a pleasure. The menu reflects California eclectic style and provides a choice for everyone. The risotto was an excellent and very well prepared. The wine list is well selected. The service was excellent and the environment pleasing.

We have enjoyed Parkside Grille on a work night as well as celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. Always great food, excellent service with a wonderful ambiance both inside and out on their patio. My favorite is the lamb chops...large enough portions to split if you aren't really hungry. Excellent wine selection too. It's a must try if you are in... More

The service was exceptional with lots of smiles and helpful ideas. The wine list had a real good variety of wines with glasses available as well as... More

This restaurant can get noisy as it is popular with the locals who come early and often. Not inexpensive but reliably good food in a setting under redwoods, where you can dine outside weather permitting.

Woodsy, quiet setting with an owner (Bill) and staff that seldom change, which tells you they like it too. Great bar, separate rooms for parties, outdoor patio for warmer evenings, and excellent food. What's not to like?

Bill and his staff always guarantee us a tasty, pleasant meal. The specials are creative and usually quite good. Ask for the Chili Relleno -- not on the menu, but a delicious secret!
