We had a group of 5 for Saturday night and were seated in a corner booth. The noise was immediately a problem. We were not all able to have a conversation without yelling. The waiter came over and we had to have several things repeated and he asked us to repeat several things. We asked for the music to be turned down with no success until getting the manager involved. Then it was marginally better as our group of 5 became a group of 3 and a group of 2 for conversation purposes. I was surprised when I asked for a draft beer and found out all they have are cans and bottles of beer. The consensus was the food was good although my shrimp and scallops arrived cold. The prices are high and much better can be found around downtown. I was disappointed that the I’d brought out of town guests there.

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 that weekend. Would return to enjoy the small plates and what I hear is a fantastic happy hour. This was my first visit to Austin but Parkside appeared to be located in a happening part of town with many bars and restaurants, and it was an easy 10-15 minute walk back to the Fairmont Hotel from the restaurant.

We like trying different food. We ordered oyster platter, bone marrow, calamari, ceviche, cauliflower. We were impressed with the quality and flavors of the dishes.

Had a relaxing meal before a show. Varied menu of small portions. The restaurant has a raw bar but we did not try it. The waitress was really helpful with the menu and drink selection. Prices are normal for the area. Just wish we would not have to navigate the seedy parts of Sixth Street to dine here.
