    We were in Portland to take in the Broadway show Cats @ the Keller Auditorium. Had an amazing server Madisyn who was very on point with everything and getting us out the door on time for our show. Many thanks and we’ll be back for more of the exceptional spicy steamer clams, amazing beet salad and without a doubt the best Brussel sprouts we’ve ever had.

    South Parkhas always been one of our go to places for special occasions. Thus it was my choice for our 55th anniversary. The hostess thought it was really special but the wait staff could hardly have cared less. The evening was culminated with him dropping the check on the table with a bang and a gruff congratulations The food has always been top notch. The menu has changed towards more casual dining and since Asian fusion is so in some of the dishes, the poke and the ceviche trended towards those flavors with the soy and sesame way over done and drenched. I liked the addition of the fish and chips but it wouldn’t make the top ten in Portland. Oysters were good. If you are going to do ceviche and you are going to do something different you better have a good idea. Cheeks of fish in a sauce doesn’t marry the flavors. That’s why ceviche is a chopped and mixed affair. Which pretty well sums up the visit.

    We are regulars! The food is always top-notch and the staff treat everyone in a way that makes you feel like a friend. This is the restaurant I was rooting for the most during the pandemic -- they genuinely care about your comfort and safety. Plenty of outdoor seating plus a spiffy air filtration system for indoors. I couldn't love this restaurant any more UNLESS they brought back the pizza! So. Good!

    The food was unfortunately disappointing. We had two orders of the king salmon which was overdone and underdone. The seasoning and pairs were not complementary to the fish. We also ordered fish and chips. The batter was too thick and the tartar sauce had hot pepper in it. The Brussel sprouts weren’t great either. The crab roll was good. The service was fine. We won’t go back anytime soon.

    We used to go to South Park whenever we were in Portland. The food was always exceptional as well as the service. Perhaps it's the difficulty everyone is having finding and keeping good staff, but this recent experience was not even close to par with previous experiences. The food was "fine," nothing remotely exceptional. The service was less than stellar. The server was very pleasant; however, we waited longer than needed between courses, only to receive the salad with the entre. By this time, I had decided it wasn't necessary to order that second glass of wine! I like to savor it, after all.

    My family and I had a nice calm dinner at the Southpark Seafood restaurant. We tried the halibut for the entree. Fresh and delicious fish that came steamed veggies and clams. We also had a cup of the clam chowder which was creamy and tasty. The soup came with real clams in shells! At the end, we ordered several desserts. The coconut passion fruit tart was super flavorful. Very light in taste and fruity. The server was really friendly and professional. Excellent service and terrific food. I recommend this restaurant to other people living or visiting Portland.

    I sat at the bar around 6:30 on a Thursday night. The bar staff were really busy making drinks but still gave care to each customer seated at the bar. The smoked fish plate was really good. The lox were some of the best I’ve had. The Malaysian Shrimp & Grits was good too. There was good spice, but not overwhelming. You can tell they put a lot of care into their craft. Even the butter served with the bread was really well done. It was light and complemented the airiness of the bread itself.

    The oysters were good, but not fully cleaned and had broken shell pieces. The crab roll was probably the best dish we tried. Both the halibut and salmon were very underwhelming and not well seasoned. I’ve been here before and I feel like the quality went drastically down.

    Honestly some of the best seafood dishes we’ve had in Portland. Oysters and mignonette were perfect. Great local selection of oysters. Smoked fish board was impressive. Best paella my girlfriend and I have had to date, it’s unfortunately rare that you get a proper socorrat at the bottom of your paella but this one was perfect. I’ll be excited to bring friends and family here who are visiting for years to come.

    Wonderful meal! The small blue pool oysters were so delicious we had two dozen. Shrimp and grits were good. So glad we had the German chocolate cake dessert. Our server Kayla was very helpful with suggestions and attentive even when she had a large table of people along with several others. Lovely decor and atmosphere!

    The service was very good! We were checked on often and served quickly. The food was a tad bit bland for the expense, but it was not bad by any means. We sat outside, and it was a little bit uncomfortable being so close to the street, but the heater was quite nice and it was walled off by a canvas tent.

    Had a great pre-show meal here. One of our barometers for a good restaurant is are we the youngest diners in the place? That checked out. The seafood feast is fun and our food runner did a great job of naming the different oysters. Our server was excellent: professional, timely, and non-intrusive.
