A bustling restaurant on Austin’s 6th street, a stretch more known for entertainment/bars, not as much the food. Parkside is an oasis of very good food on 6th street, with great service and atmosphere that highlight a visit to the restaurant. Food: - Oysters: I’m...More

The restaurant is LOUD. Extremely difficult to have a conversation. Definitely NOT a place for romance. The portions are very small and gets quite expensive to order enough to fill a male. Service was very good and very up front about the size of portions.

With so many Austin options, this is mediocre. Good neighborhood spot, small portions, loud. Nice waitstaff, but we do not need to return.

Dined upstairs with a large private group and enjoyed several wonderful choices from a selected menu as well as family-style sides. Service was efficient and the cocktail hour preceding the dinner included time on the upstairs covered deck which was lovely despite the rainy weather...More
