  • Great anniversary
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    My husband and I dined here for our wedding anniversary! It was just what we were looking for. Quiet, romantic and great service. The portion sizes are all very generous! We left happy and full. The only reason it wasn't 5 stars was my husbands steak was a bit tough. My filet was perfect though. We will definitely go back!

    Love the quieter atmosphere of Parea and the nice variety of menu items. The service is very good and the owner takes time out to say hello.

  • Parea Stinks! Owner is a Jerk!!!!!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/4/2014
    Owner has the audacity to argue with me about if my steak was overcooked or not. Wouldn't cover my entree that took an hour to get right. Drinks took 15 minutes to get to the table. Food is overpriced and not very good. Go to other downtown Valpo restaurants, and make this owner jerk pay for not having a customer service focus!!

    We have been to Parea several times over the 2-3 years it has been open. This time I was somewhat disappointed. We arrived for our 6 pm Open Table reservation and were promptly seated. Even though we were ahead of the Friday night crowd, our waiter did not appear at our table within the usually acceptable time. Then, when we ordered drinks and then our dinner, we had a noticeable wait. While we did get a drink and our salads within a reasonable but long time, our dinner was not served until after 7:15 pm. I checked my watch since it was substantially late. My wife enjoyed her dinner very well, but I was not impressed by the salad nor the pork shank. We both thought that the wines which were served were not very memorable. Too bad.

    We went on a Saturday night with another couple. Each of our entrees was really good. Very tasty. The server was timely, friendly and informative. So often you don't get good food and good service! We will definitely go back.

    My husband and I always like to try new restaurants, so when there was a groupon available for Parea we thought we would try it. We made reservation like it stated on group on but when we got there there was a sign on the door say no group on on Friday or Saturday. However it did not state that on the group on at all. So that was a let down but we ate there anyways. The menu that is online for them is wrong so wheat both my husband and I wanted was not available. Another let down. Food was so so. The staff however was VERY NICE and did an excellent job..
