Southside Bistro Ratings and Reviews

South side is one of my favorite lunch spots. When I recently dined with a friend on crutches, staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs without being obvious about it. Also important, the noise level is low enuf that we could comfortably converse. Food was also great.

This being a signature event I was not happy my reservations garnered a non while tablecloth table but a cafe like plastic booth. I discussed it with a marvelous person who reseated me where I enjoyed a marvelous menu and wine. Special thanks to the professional staff and kitchen of this gem!!

4 person tables are not enough room for a party of 4 ordering drinks, appetizers, water glasses & bread plates. We all felt crammed the entire meal.
Service was excellent. Timing on each course was great. Good food!

The atmosphere was nice as well as the service. However the expensive $36 filet minion I ordered got over cooked to the point where it was burnt, the server did take it off the bill and asked if I wanted another one cooked, to which I declined. This is a restaurant for special occasions or foodies.

I came here for my birthday lunch with friends. I already knew I loved the food at Southside Bistro, and I was not disappointed. The mussels are out of this world good. The service was excellent and prompt. I did see families coming in with kids for lunch and the restaurant is kid-friendly. I have also been to more formal business meeting dinners here. I highly recommend Southside Bistro!

You'd never know what a gem it is from the outside - A high-end restaurant hidden in a strip mall with a rooster on their sign.
The service was excellent as was the food. They gladly accommodated our request to be seated farther from the bar. A subtle hint that it was my wife's birthday brought us a beautifully prepared dessert plate - but no awkward singing. Our glasses were never left empty and plates not removed until all were finished eating - just like my mother taught me at home.
The prices make it a special occasion eatery for us, but the quality and preparation accurately reflecte the price. The many fresh seafood offerings are a standout.

We were celebrating out 47th anniversary and were not disappointed. My steak was flavorful and sufficiently large that I had leftovers for lunch the next day. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his scallops and prawns. We shared a salad and were glad that we hadn't ordered one for each of us - our shared salad was just the right amount and we weren't too full from that and our entrée to have desert. The desert menu hasn't changed for a long time and isn't very exciting - even the fact that there are daily specials among the deserts wasn't helpful. We ended up sharing a dish of ice cream and were happy with it.

We had not been here in years however it won't be as long until our next meal there. The seafood chowder was the best we have had and the Caesar salad was yummy. We had seafood for our main courses and both were great. Our server was knowledgable and friendly. We enjoyed the whole experience.

Have been to this restaurant many times. Had the scallops and prawns with rice. The rice was a mix of white and wild, and looked and tasted like a mix from a box. A little disappointed. (If the pilaf was made from scratch, I would recommend changing the recipe). My partner ordered the pork schnitzel which was a lot better than my entree.

My husband and I celebrated our 11th anniversary with dinner here and it was absolutely wonderful! We ordered the blue cheese custard for our appetizer, my husband got tomato cream soup as well. So tasty! The lamb and scallops were equally as tasty and my peach raspberry cobbler was the perfect ending to a perfect meal!
Quite delicious and great service
We got right in when we got to the restaurant - had reservations ahead of time, but was afraid that since it was a Friday night it'd a bit of a wait. But we got right in and our drinks and food were all delivered very fast and the servers were excellent.

Kerry was a great server! Very attentive but not over bearing. He and and cook staff made sure everything was out in perfect timing. I really have no complaints, I will definitely be back! The scallops are spot on
Birthday Dinner Special
The food was delicious (rack of Lamb for my husband which he loved) (scallops for me- i would have liked them cooked just a bit more). I mentioned that it was my husband's birthday when reserving our table and the Staff remembered and did an excellent job catering to him and making him feel special. The desert presentation was the best with a large 'Happy Birthday' written in chocolate sauce on the plate of his Peach Bread Pudding!
Our dinner was perfect in every way, the wife likes the Bleu Cheese Cream Custard appetizer. The Rockfish was very fresh. I don't think you can ever have a bad meal there. Nice to Jen's there too. Our waiter Kelly is the best, 40 yrs experience. You have to go if you have never been there. The portions are unbelievably large for that scale of restaurant.
