First time here. The meal was OK, but nothing to rave about. Definitely would not go again. Very mediocre food, service lousy. Prices may be OK for that neighborhood but certainly not worth the effort. Even the coffees were blah.

When we feel like a treat, we meet friends at Parkside Grille. It has indoor and outdoor dining in a beautiful wooded area. The dishes are very tasty and presented well.

The outside, dog friendly patio is great for an outdoor meal. Near but well shielded from nearby Portola Rd. Generally on the quieter side both inside and out than many restaurants.

I wish there was a rating between Average and Very Good. The Parkside Grille is definitely above Average, but I am not sure it quite ranks as Very Good. The food is good. I chose the restaurant for Stanford graduation weekend to get away from...More
