    My wife and went for dinner at 6:00 on saturday and the restaurant was busy but not packed. By 8:30 when we left, the entire place was filled and hopping, but no-one pushed us out or hurried us along. Service was great, food selections were all prepared to perfection. We both ordered from the evening specials and were not disappointed. Topped off the meal with a berry tart for dessert that was heavenly. Ginger flavor is all over the menu so make sure you know what you are ordering in case you're not a fan of it. Would definitely go back.

    Sushi was great. ..other dishes were too salty and just a bit too.many flavors in one entrée. We waited about 15 minutes with a reservation. It's been about 5 years since I was there last...Won't rush to go back. Was overall a good.experience because of the company but our entrees were too salty.to.be enjoyable.

    I took my wife here for our anniversary, made reservations requesting a quiet table for a little romance. When the hosts looked at my request on the computer, they snickered and rolled their eyes - we ended up crammed between two parties. I scoped the restaurant to see if perhaps there were no "quiet" tables available, and counted three open for seating. The food was ok, the atmosphere was a little high-brow for the quality, the wait staff seemed nice enough (save the hosts who couldn't control the sass). Won't be going back.

    we had an awesome dining experience with a group of six family members. The service was friendly and efficient, and the food was delicious. We especially loved the sushi. The special for the evening was a cabbage hot and spicy soup that was outstanding. The atmosphere was wonderfully quiet. What a find.

    My entree was very disappointing; it "read" better than it tasted. Very expensive and not worth the effort to determine exactly where the ingredients listed on the menu were hidden within the plate. Parallax dropped the ball on this evening. It was a special occasion birthday dinner which did not live up to our expectations.

    We looked forward to our second meal at Parallax because the first was spectacular, and we have been fortunate to enjoy delicious meals at a number of Zach Bruell restaurants. Mr. Bruell was even in the house this evening! The appetizers of salad and pot stickers were excellent, as was the ginger creme brulee dessert. But while the walleye was perfectly cooked, the corn and pepper sauce side dish was unappealingly sour. Similarly the seafood in the stew was tender and succulent but in an utterly tasteless broth. The service, as always, was impeccable.

    Besides the noise level it was a wonderfule experience. The drinks were generous and reasonably priced and the food was absolutely delicious. The service was also first rate including being flexible about swapping different sides. Overall it was a great experience despite the fact that the Walleye serving was very small.

    This past Saturday evening was my second time at Parallax, and I've already made reservations before the summer ends to go a third time! It reminds me of a restaurant you might find in the West Village of NYC. Great tasting food, unique menu and an energetic atmosphere. I'm a 25 year-old Cleveland native, who recently moved back to Ohio City from the East Coast. I've been to Parallax with a group of friends, on a date, and plan on taking my parents out for a treat with my third trip.

    Great ambience both inside and outside. Liked the bar as well. The menu is very creative. I had the Lupa de Mar which was cooked in a Red Thai Curry. Outstanding. I also tried the Swordfish belly which was also outstanding. We had a new server but she did a FANTASTIC job and made the experience even better.

    The server seemed insincere with his enthusiasm. Every time our group asked for something he would say "that would be no problem." However the tone of his voice said otherwise. Two members of our group were visiting from outside the country and the server seemed very irritated when we had to translate or explain things to them. Also, as our guests were from South America they are accustomed to having lemonade with crushed ice. We kindly made the request, which was "no problem." Unfortunately the result was a lemonade mix poured over a half crushed glass of ice. I think spending $100 minimum at a restaurant merits real lemons. In addition tables should be far enough away so that guests are not touching each other or the waiter.

    This was the first time for my girl friend I at Parrallax and what a great first impression. Food was great and ingredients fresh. Our waiter was wonderful and the wine fantastic. We will definitely recommend to others. We now have a more difficult choice to make when going to Tremont, Parrallax or Fat Cats.

    First time at Parallax, but it won't be the last. I jumped on OpenTable at 7:45pm (on a Saturday) and booked a table for 8pm. We arrived on time, and they walked us right back. The cocktails were delicious, and the sushi was excellent. The service was spot-on. Some of the best i've received in Tremont, and possibly Cleveland as a whole. My only criticism would be the spacing of the tables along the booth side of the restaurant. If they took just one table out of the row, it would have made for a much more comfortable experience. Great meal otherwise!

    We had a great meal at Parallax and enjoyed the ambiance and service as well. It is close quarters inside the restaurant, with narrow aisles and not a lot of room between the tables, which I would say is the biggest drawback.

    Had a terrific experince at one of Tremonts gems. Went to Parallax with my brother for a belated birthday dinner, this was our first time dining here, we were not disappointed. The staff was very attentive, and knowledgeable about the wine. We asked for a few recommendations for appetizers and entree's and were not disappointed. The food was excellent, were had the grilled pork chops and pork belly as an appetizer. Will make this restaurant a regular Place to visit and recommend to all my friends!

    My partner and I went to dinner here later one evening and we were happy to find such a busy place so close to home. The menu had plenty of gourmet options and I was happy to see several dishes feature locally sourced ingredients. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to people looking for a place to go on a special occasion but I personally found the prices a bit steep to include this restaurant in regular rotation.
