The New York Times film critic Mordaunt Hall panned Side Streets, calling it "one of those wearying examples of writing down to what the studio believes to be the intelligence level of certain cinema audiences." However, he note that "Miss MacMahon and Mr. Kelly do all that is possible with their thankless roles. Ann Dvorak and Helen Lowell also make the most of their scant opportunities."
According to Warner Bros records the film earned $126,000 domestically and $65,000 internationally.
