  • "While living on Capital Hill a few years back Parallel 17 became a favorite dining spot of ours. We enjoyed the vegetarian options on the menu and the Monday all night happy hour menu. The new P17 is a hit with us as well. A wide selection of items to dine on, excellent service, quality cocktails and an evening on the patio.....We will be back. P.S. they still serve the Pho."

  • "Very disappointed in the food with the new menu. We have enjoyed eating here previously, but with the new menu, not sure we will go back."

  • "The food was very good...the house wine was one of the better your find for house wines...however, I don't appreciate going out to dinner and then being expected to sit by a dog. Restaurants are for people...not animals whether it be inside or out. For this reason I would probably not be going back to P17. Also one of the reasons we chose P17 was for one of the specials...which they were out of already at 5:30."

  • "Loved it. Great cocktails and we really liked mixing the small plate choices with the entrees. We sat outside and enjoyed the neighborhood traffic and, to repeat ourselves, really loved the food!! Thanks to all at P17. Everyone was friendly and helpful. PS, yummy food. Yum."

  • "The Short Ribs were not moist enough, and the Pasta dish was too sludgy and thick. The chocolate/bacon ice cream dessert was highly overrated."

  • "After reviewing 5280's list of great casual restaurants, I picked Parallel 17. I love Vietnamese food and thought I was in for a treat. Once I arrived, I was told they rebranded with a different menu - which is strange that a restaurant with a recommendation would switch? We persisted and ordered - the Lamb Burger was so drenched in a paprika style red sauce that I had to use 2 napkins and it looked like I had personally bludgeoned a cow at the table. The "simple salad" of Bibb lettuce and tarragon and buttermilk dressing was exceptionally plain and lacked color. The octopus small plate was too potent on the red onion/veggie mix and just average. I talked with the manager on duty (Lee?) who didn't seem to care about my experience either."

  • "I was anxious to get here and try the new incarnation of this restaurant. Mary does SO MUCH for charity, including several organizations with which I am involved, so I like to support her restaurants as much as possible. The food on the reworked menu was wonderfully innovative and delicious, and my gluten-free friend whose birthday we celebrated was delighted with all the options for her diet. Our server Kerry was terrific! We enjoyed the front patio for hours without being rushed. The only downside, if there was one, is the extreme traffic noise from 17th as Happy Hour turns into evening."

  • "Had been wanting to go here for years and never made it until now. I thought they were supposed to be an asian fusian place, but the only asian dish on the menu was Pho. The waitress recommended the shortribs, which were horribly bland and so we asked for extra sauce, which was simply a lighter coloredversion of something that tasted like A1 steaksauce and was the best part of the dish. I liked the grilled calamari small plate and the French GSM wine. Overall not worth my drive up there from south Denver though."

  • "We had no information about this place. But wanted a brunch location near the Zoo. This was perfect. Beautiful little place, with outside tables which was wonderful on a Sunday morning. The food was very delicious and prices were a bit less than expected. Our waitress was really nice and attentive as we enjoyed the morning. I would highly recommend this restaurant for the brunch and really hope to get back for lunch and dinner in the very near future."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "We have been here before, but the food was especially delicious on this outing. We were very impressed with the grilled squid and fritters, and the Pho is always dependable. Reasonably priced and delicious. We will be back."

  • "New menu was not to our liking. I ordered mussels and many of them were closed. Service was good but we will not be back."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "This is a neighborhood spot that I would not recommend because of the inconsistency in food quality. I had a cocktail made with prosecco that came to me warm and flat. The "citrus" overtones were overpowering and it was sweet, almost syrupy. Tomato tart appetizer was good - nice flaky crust. The kale salad was very good. My husband had the pork tenderloin which he said was nicely prepared and flavorful. My Pho was tasteless. It was mostly broth with four round carrot slices, four thin slices of beef, a small serving of rice noodles and a few strands of baby bok choy. The ice cream was homemade but, unfortunately, was too "new" and not adequately frozen. Nice decor and patio. A little more kitchen effort might make this a gem."

  • "if they try to seat you next to the swinging door of the kitchen ask if another spot is available.....it's irritating!"

  • "First visit since a rebranding. Loved the place in the past and love it now!!!! Had small plates to start with a mojito and then beef cheeks that were just perfect! Unfortunately ( due to another commitment) did not have a dessert but saw some going to other tables and I know I will have to get some when I return! WELL DONE"

  • "We had a nice table outside on the patio. Great food and service."

  • "Great menu, innovative ideas, fantastic cocktail. But service for brunch was way off. Eggs benedict was disappointing. Eggs were nicely poached, but arrived cold. Had to hunt down my check."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Good food. Service was slow. But they were accommodating when my wife's soup was too spicy. They brought a substitute without persuading. I recommend the place. The Pho was excellent."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Chef Mary has created a new menu, preserving a few Vietnamese dishes but creating some exceptional French bistros dishes. The Moules Frites are a must try."

  • "We had a nice round table for our party of 6. Great food and service. Would go back again. Not too loud and it was a nice night outside so they had all the windows open."

  • "Food was bland and nothing special, drinks were great but very expensive for the size."

  • "Good food. Fresh ingredients. Creative combinations. Need to serve bread gratuit if holding out as a French bistro. Annoying musik."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "My daughter had a chicken sandwich which was HUGE, delicious and juicy. We made it two meals. I had the Kale salad which had a very nice dressing. My friend had the pork loin sandwich served on French bread which enjoyed very much. My roommate had the Monte Cristo which he said was better than most places. Service was perfect! "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "We loved our dinner experience at P-17. I loved the roasted beets, frisée and watermelon and pistachios ( some of my favorite things all together!) and I also had the grilled squid - great to have it not fried and the flavors were so summery. My husband had the roasted chicken and devoured it. We were able to taste a couple of wines before we settled on one. Lovely dinners and priced well. We will look forward to returning. "

  • "Most excellent vegetarian Pho in Denver! Needs more vegetarian/vegan options though."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Parallel 17 used to be one of my favorites. I enjoyed their curries, noodle bowls and delicious fish entrees. The menu is now more "French Bistro", which seemed to have few innovative dishes and far too much pork dishes for me. Of the only two salads, the Kale salad was overdressed and underwhelming. However, the Pho is still a great dish."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "I like the eclectic menu - grilled squid, pho, interesting salads & soups. Everything we've had there has been well prepared. Staff is friendly and professional. Nicely decorated indoors and a great outdoor space to enjoy the spring. We love this neighborhood and love walking around there after our meal. "
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "P17's rebirth as a neighborhood bistro brings fresh flavors, an easy and casual environment and great wine list to Denver - so much like the bistros of Europe. We loved the menu and had gracious and friendly servers. The highlights were the grilled squid with basil pesto (tender and just a touch smoky from the char), the Red Kale Salad with blueberries, faro & cashews (great textures and incredible flavor), the Papardelle pasta with bolognese & ricotta (my husband is a bolognese connoisseur and said this was the best he's ever had!), and the roast chicken with kale & crispy potatoes (my favorite, a total bistro classic). The wine list has unique selections from places like Greece and Lebanon but I went for the CA Rose and ordered a second."

  • "Great food and generally good service. The only downside is that the waiter brought out a dessert for our group to share - which we thought was free because we didn't order it and were celebrating a birthday - and then charged us for the dessert. A big no-no. Left a bad feeling at the end of what was otherwise a nice evening."
    Dined on 4/14/2013
  • "We had the lunch special which included a delectable crab cake sandwich, a dressed greens salad and tomato bisque. The taste of the tomato bisque was wonderful but, it should have been a little bit hotter. It wasn't cold - it just wasn't hot like soup needs to be on cooler day. Everything was fabulous with this one exception. The service was great. The environment was (as always) very cool. The dining space is very small but, we've always been very lucky to get a table - especially during the week - especially with the help of Open Table."

  • "This was the first restaurant I went to when I moved to Denver in 2008. It's where I take all out-of-town guests because they are always charmed. I know the menu like the back of my hand: my favorite dish to share is the calamari. Nothing like you've ever experienced. If you are looking for something light yet filling, get the pho. Start it out with a moscow mule (served in a copper cup of course) and end with a Vietnamese coffee."
    Dined on 4/5/2013
  • "I have attended your parallel, multiple of times. It had been a while since I have been in the restaurant, but the last two times I have the waitresses have not been all that friendly and I state that by their body actions. One can very easy put on a fake smile to get through work and intereact with cutomers. I deal with customers first hand as well, but when you get customers that are friendly and enjoy your service it makes the person waiting on you just as happy. With such a beautiful restaurant it is dissapointing to see a person come across not as happy and putting an act on. When you have bottomless mimosas your waitresses should not assume they are dont just because a tap is paid. Why? because we were still enjoying our time."

  • "I had bee n here before for dinner and loved it. I was therefor disappointed to find only a few patrons there. When our food came I understood why. There was nothing special about it at all. I have had better noodle bowls at any number of Denver' s Asian restaurants. The service was less than excellent . All in all, I had to apologize to my guest who had not been there before."
    Dined on 3/18/2013
  • "What an inventive menu. Lots of non-meat options that are amazing, like the white asparagus dumplings or the crispy spring rolls (not your run-of-the mill spring rolls). Beautiful presentation. Pho is authentic, as are all dishes I've had there. Great place."

The food was ok But nothing spectacular, and our server had No input on wine and/or food, he answered Every question with "its good". I won't be Returning to parallel 17."
