“Love the banyan trees..and top notch service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

I had an amazing experience at Parkshore. We made reservations and it didn't seem like a big deal if we needed them or not. The staff was pretty friendly although the hostesses weren't really attentive and didn't really greet us when we entered the restaurant. The atmosphere is definitely casual chic and cleverly themed. Our waiter, Franz, was attentive and very knowledgeable about the dishes. He was kind enough to explain to us the more curious concoctions on the menu. And not to mention extremely good looking and made our stomach hungry for more from his mouth!!!

We opted to have the mussel appetizer over the shrimp cocktail, which was pretty standard. The sesame tuna salad was delicious! The Parkshore was pretty good. The best part was the yellowfin tuna and the asparagus that came as a side to our dishes.

The waiter recommended the Ferrari Chardonnay which went so well with the tuna, the memory of its taste made my mouth water for dayssss!!!!

Also, for dessert, the apple cobbler ala-mode was fantastic. Our waiter recommended it as a fellow cobbler nazi...and he was totally right!!!!!! It was THE perfect dessert to end our fabulous experience and night. Thank you Parkshore..and thank you Franz!!!

“Great Food but Terrible Service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Went to Saint Petersburg last week (3/10) on business and stayed at the Marriott Courtyard, it is only about 4 blocks and walking distance to the Parkshore Grill. Hotel clerk recommended it to us. It was a busy time around 6:30 and the only available seating was either outside (chilly in early March) or inside in the bar. We chose the bar. Sat down and waited for 20 minutes before anyone (the hostess) asked if anyone had gotten our orders. Guess it was because the hostess didn't give us menus to start with. How would a waiter responsible for a group of tables know that two men in suits sitting at a table with nothing would want a drink, or heavens forbid, dinner.

After the hostess gave us menus, waited another 15 minutes for the waiter to take interest in us. Actually, we had not seen the waiter before so we don't know where he came from. Waited another 10 minutes for our drinks. Food was very good, a little pricey as it is all a la carte. Of course the waiter forgot and didn't bring all of my order with the rib eye. He finally brought the side of onion rings after I had finished my meal. Rings were very good and so was the steak. My partner got the scallops and said they were delicious. Of course the long, long wait and inattentiveness really was a downer and we will not go back when we return. Go to the Bella Brava for some excellent italian food and great service. One block south of Parkshore on beach drive. Also has sidewalk and indoor seating.

“Great dining on Beach Drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We dined at Parkshore Grill for dinner. The start of the evening as a bit rocky as we waited awhile for the valet and we waited 30 minutes for a table. I highly recommend making a reservation. Once seated we were placed in a quaint booth. Our server, Pete, had a lot of personality and definitely improved our experience. The manager was very actively involved which we greatly appreciated. We both ordered the surf and turf, delicious and flavorful. I also had the 'Bay walk' which very fruity and refreshing. Overall, it was a great dining experience. I highly recommend it.
