    A big bummer was the hostess telling us as she seated us that there was a 2 hour limit. This caused unneeded time stress that impaired our full enjoyment of dining out. The cheese plate was described as “a goat cheese and a cow cheese from France”. The service just seemed young and like it needed some more experience but the food was very good.

    Plenty of fresh seafood, well and creatively prepared. A favorite was the smoked fish appetizer. The night were were there, it was salmon: cold-smoked slices, a hot-smoked collar, and a spread. The collar came with a mustard sauce that paired flavors perfectly. When he seated us, the host was adamant that our party of six could only have the table for two hours. Our waiter was more considerate, paced out the meal well, and in the end, we didn't feel pressured. We had cocktails, wine, appetizers, entrees and dessert; not a small check and we weren't slow to order. When booking reservations, more time should be allowed for larger parties.

    Food was very overpriced for portion served, had the seafood platter and the paella between my wife and me. Food was hardly seasoned, if at all. Paella had absolutely no socarrat, no seasoning, very poor effort. I had eaten here in 2019 on business and it was great, majorly disappointing this time.

    Our server didn't know anything about the wine we were looking at, but she went inside to ask the sommelier and conveyed his or her excellent description. We ordered two entries, a summer stew with calamari and tuna on a gazpacho, and they were both very flavorful. A very good experience.

    We both enjoyed ourselves. The service was above and beyond helpful and our waiter went out of his way to take care of our "wants". We both loved our food choices. Often I have stomach rumbles after eating but not this time. The food was tasty, tender and just plain wonderful. We both kept mentioning throughout the evening how wonderful our dinner was. Thank you.

    South Park Seafood is consistently excellent and has been for decades. We brought our visiting relatives to Southpark for lunch because we knew that they would experience Portland’s best in local cuisine. Southpark earned 5 stars in every department. Thanks so much.

    we had a table for 10 on a Monday night. As we were seated the hostess loudly told us we had 2 hours. Not a very welcoming message -- would have been much better if that had been communicated to us before the event (which was reserved/booked more than 2 weeks in advance). Turns out the restaurant was half full when we finished so unclear why were unexpectedly given this time limit.

    Yikes. My halibut was maybe 2 ounces and over cooked with no flavor. The entire dish had a horrible presentation, it looked like they brought me someone's leftovers. The manager did comp the meal and the service was overall good. My husband's salmon was also over cooked but at least it was a decent size! The brussel sprouts side is bomb good! But I probably won't be back unless it's happy hour for just apps.

    Didn't know what to expect when we made a reservation here. Picked the restaurant based on its proximity to the Paramount hotel. Really enjoyed our meal here. Martinis were perfect. Shrimp cocktail and clam chowder were some of the best that we have ever had. Shrimp were huge, firm, and served with a great cocktail sauce. The clam chowder had clams in the shell and was quite tasty. Main courses were halibut (with clams) and bacon wrapped cod. Side dish was grilled corn (served on the cob). Everything was cooked and seasoned perfectly. Desert was a whiskey peach upside down cake that could have been too sweet; but, was not (it was just the right sweetness). We will definitely dine here again.
