6-Star Service!My aunt is visiting and I wanted to give her a memorable meal. The service was impeccable, soup to nuts. The food was perfectly cooked and the flavours well balanced. Whipped strawberry mousse with basil granite was a surprisingly well paired dialectic. Ambiance was somewhat casual, relaxed, save the garish business types, but whatareyagonnado? Would definitely return.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFinal FarewellMy husband and I were spending our last Night ins SF after lining across the street from the Ritz-Calrton for 10 years. We chose to go to the new place Parallel 37. It was one of the best meals we have ever had. The food was absolutely stunning, visually, taste, smell. texture. They call them small plates, but I guess we are not the giant portion kind of American's we found the portions just right to share and keep us wanting more. We ordered four items and shared each one, had desert and a drink and went home truly satisfied and grateful that we picked such a fine place to spend our last evening in SF. Thank you for making it a great night.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and serviceThe food was simply the best my palate has experienced, the menu compiled by the chef was not only amazing, but each and every dish is carefully selected and served with the best fresh-made sauces. Just delicious.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a business meeting here;I had a business meeting here; the service was impeccable and it was a great venue for a business breakfast.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the chef's tastingWe had the chef's tasting menu. It was awesome. On of the best I ever had.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMRitz Carlton brought in aRitz Carlton brought in a new chef and he has created a wonderful dining experience. The menu is somewhat unique in that it doesn't have the traditional "appetizers", "entrees" and "dessert". Rather it is organized "vegetables, "seafood" and "meats". (There is also a "prix-fixe for $135 that we haven't tried.) By ordering any 4 or 5 items/person you will have a excellent dining experience.
The wait staff was particularly helpful and the service was first-rate.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique and imaginative menu.Unique and imaginative menu. Outstanding, friendly service that was incredibly prompt. Perfect for a couple who wanted to spend time focusing on enjoying dinner and bring together not on the waitstaff or operations of the place.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA Must Place to Eat!Excellent chef, food is not only delicious but a work of art.
Service, exactly there when you want it and personable.
Highly recommend.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter Carl was fantasticOur waiter Carl was fantastic and the food was wonderful.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMUnparalleled DiningBeautifully prepared and presented dishes. The format is a little different; Items from all courses are the same size and a little on the small size. However, they are priced quite reasonably. This allows you to taste more of their delicious food and each dish can be shared with two or three. It's American fare prepared in the Foodie fashion with something for everyone. The service is professional but easy-going and very friendly.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the wine and everythingLoved the wine and everything we tried!

Perhaps a revisit...perhaps not...we could still be waiting on the Ramos Fizzes we ordered.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMParallel 37 has a new chefParallel 37 has a new chef from Charlie Trotter's.It is clear that he is talented-but he may be trying to hard to demonstrate his talents. The menu is not traditional-it is sorted into "Vegetable","Fish" and "Meat".No appetizers or entrees!Only with the help of the wait-staff did we know how much to order.The portions are small and you will probably want to order three items, not including dessert.The menu on OpenTable is not the current.You need to go to the Ritz-Carlton website to see the new menu.My wife and I ordered two of each.Particularly outstanding was the "Spicy Artichoke"(it was not very spicy),the Boneless Chicken Wings and the Kampachi.Great care went into each attractive presentation.Enjoy but it is pricey as is the wine list.2/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
