Good choice for a casual dinner out.

Parkside Grille has been a regular dining place for our family for many years. We go there about once per month. The pizza's fish and meat dishes are all good as well as service.

We had a small birthday dinner at Parkside Grille last week and really enjoyed it. The service was very attentive but not intrusive. Server suggested the goat cheese "family style" starter (with crisp bread, sun dried tomatoes, garlic, pesto) and it was so delicious. The Scottish salmon was very tasty as was the Ahi tuna. We were there on a... More

The atmosphere can be noisy during Happy hour, but it is usually possible to get a quiet table. The food is California/Mediterranean. The pizzas are definitely European style and cooked in a wood fired oven and very good. Service is pleasant and friendly.

We've been eating here for years and have even established an "every other Friday" lunch routine. We also come for dinner and have had special occasions enjoyed at the Parkside Grille. The owner, Bill, is warm and attentive from making sure clients are happy to working with the excellent chef and kitchen staff to serve the very best. The menu... More

There were many things on the menu that caught my eye but I went with the standard NY steak. It was cooked exactly as I ordered and went perfectly with a glass of zinfandel. Even though the restaurant was busy the wait staff was very attentive.

This neighborhood place offers very good choices and the opportunity to sit outside amidst redwoods, or indoors at the bar, dining room or a nice room with a fireplace. They serve delicious bread from Woodside Bakery and i have enjoyed several meals there. The GF pizza is quite good. The only thing which could improve are the salads - lettuce... More

But...service is sketchy, and cops lurking in the trees to pull you over for DUI check. Drive the 30 MPH limit until you get back to the hwy.

A welcome place to come back to time and again. Genuine, comfortable Pub atmosphere. Food is consistent in its quality and freshness. Service is smart. Parking's a bit cramped. Good company is all you need -- they will take care of the rest.

We celebrated our anniversary by going to the Parkside Grille for dinner on Wednesday last week. Located in Portola Valley, about 15 minutes from our home in Palo Alto, its a pleasant drive once you get off of the freeway. We made reservations for a early dinner and were glad we did because as noted by the previous reviewer, it... More
