A word from Parish Hall
Our food is an exploration of place, tradition, and change, an attempt to answer this question: what would regional northeast cuisine look like? Unlike southern food, which has a strong and identifiable tradition, the food of New York, the Catskills, and the Hudson River Valley has been continually reinterpreted by a dozens of different cultures. What we have had consistently is an amazing region for growing vegetables and livestock, an abundant supply of fish and oysters and mushrooms and maple syrup. At Parish Hall, we'll take advantage of this abundance with one eye on the various traditions of the area and another on the exciting neighborhood we cook and serve in and try to find food that expresses its place and its time

Parish Hall reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Great, but not rushing back
    BryNycVIP
    Dined on 1/11/2014
    Had a perfectly fine time. Food was great, although...very skimpy on the duck entree. Fish was fresh and well presented, chicken was fantastic. Drinks were great and served quickly...but it just did not bring me the warm fuzzies I was hoping. It's a bit sterile, trying a bit too hard...but eh...very good. Our Waitress was fantastic...but disappeared. Servers were ok, we didn't have desert as they took forever to come back to us for the order...but go, it's solid...just leave your expectations at home.

    Took my wife to New Year's dinner and could not have been happier. Service was perfectly timed and everything - literally everything - was amazing. We both had the Duck as our entree and it was cooked to perfection. The house Manhattan - made with chocolate bitters - was so well prepared and balanced it left us wanting more. Everything about the meal was superb. We can't wait to go back again and try some of the other dishes we saw going by. Oh, and a $65 fixed price menu on New Year's was a steal.

  • My favorite restaurant in the city
    collardgreens
    Dined on 11/29/2013
    I really love this restaurant. To start off, the menu is spectacular; an incredible range of choices that emphasizes local products and healthy dining and interesting combinations of ingredients that never misfire. It's excellent value. The design of the restaurant is beautiful: simple and clean with the tables spread far enough apart that you don't feel you're dining with strangers. This is also one of the few restaurants in this city in which you don't have to shout to be heard. The waitstaff is always personable and never intrusive and well-aware of the changing menu. You really cannot do better than Parrish Hall when it comes to a beautiful, romantic setting, great food and affordability. I would give it more stars if I could!

    My Mom and I went for lunch on a weekday and everything was beautifully prepared and presented. Her French toast was eggy and delicious. My Pullman sandwich was a delectable grill cheese essentially but with fennel and pear. It was served with a mesclun green salad that was perfectly dressed. I would most definitely come back for dinner. The dining room is a clean white and steel and blonde wood industrial chic space that gives off a great vibe. The service is outstanding. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and on the spot with everything and also had great neighborhood shopping recommendations. Loved our experience.

    Haphazard plate presentations. Short on options for wines by glass. Decor showing it's age - lots of white paint showing traffic wear and tear. Server was attentive despite being short-staffed. Tiny martinis; 86'ed the olives. Appreciated unprompted side plate of beef at correctly prepared temperature; comped dessert. They made it right, but starting to look tired. At least needs a paint job - scuffs and mop marks make a restaurant look worn. Was sat near side station which actually wasn't a bad spot, if not for the unusual chaos, even by support area standards. Better values to be had.

    So many great brunch places in Williamsburg and this could be one of them some day. The reviews for PH are generally very strong so I figured I'd come here instead of Enids, a decision which I regret. I'll start with the positives: interesting menu, convenient location, pleasant ambiance, and pretty good food. But all of these things are undermined by service. The staff seem to not know how to provide great service and not care enough to try very hard. Our reservation was botched, food arrived cold, drinks arrived late, and there was no personal connection. With so many great places nearby, why reward people who treat their customers so shabbily?

    I have been here four times and like the food a lot. I will come back-I mean who can resist that patty melt!? Writing this review because 3/4 of the times I've been they didn't put though my Open Table reservation, this last time a girl checked me in and said just a minute then left us standing there, no one ever came for us! Finally a waiter asked if we were being helped...what is that? Ugg. Also, service is S L O W please pick up the pace guys. 10+ minutes sitting there with a menu flat on the table ready to order and no one came. Finally when the waitress came she asked if we were being helped and I said, "I don't think we have a waitress, are you her?" SHe replied yes--okay, so what have you been doing ignoring us then? So odd.

    The menu leans heavily upon the ingredients they farm in upstate NY; however, what Chef Evan does with the ingredients makes it worth the trip. Light, clean and imaginative combinations are brought to a surprising close with some of the better deserts on offer in NYC. The cucumber/coffee ice cream float will be attempted continuously in our home.

    OK, I loved part of this restaurant, hated part of it. The food was good and interesting. Cocktails were well done. Wine list was good (not great) ... but when they "couldn't find" our first two choices of wine I got a little disturbed. Each course was delivered to the wrong person, timing was bad on delivery and we'd almost finished our main course before the wine was brought to the table. The staff clearly wasn't communicating. They were lucky to find the table yet know who ordered what. We were forgotten about and I had to go find the waiter .... The staff was very friendly, very polite, very welcoming .... but clearly poorly trained and poorly managed. I'd give this place a second try .... but ............

    Dined on 8/9/2013
    It was clear that the night was going to be a pleasure when upon entering I was greeted cordially by one of the servers who already had his hands full of dishes for a current table. The industrial/minimalist feel in decor is counterbalanced by the homeliness of the farm to table menu and the particularly favorable lighting. The food is delicious especially the smoked trout/toast and the fairytale eggplant. Portions generous. Service was smooth and the waitress made helpful recommendations and knew the precise attributes of each dish. With complimentary delicious cantaloupe sorbet for dessert, we left vowing to come back for me, and will.

    This is a good foundation for a future great place. Everything I ate was good, but it all tasted similar, and was kind of heavy. The BLT, though good was too much bread and not enough inside the sandwich. I think with small tweaks, this place could be awesome.

    I picked this restaurant "blind" based on its menu. When we arrived I was blown away by the peaceful and creative and beautiful ambiance: all white and wood and light. Our lunch was beautifully presented, fresh tasting and delicious. And did I mention creative? The salad greens were a combination of fresh grown-up lettuces, in a light perfect dressing. I would go back in a heartbeat. I can't figure out why the place wasn't mobbed!!!!

    The interior is lovely with light wood and a sort of feel with clean lines and a spacious maybe Norwegian feel. Most of the appetizers were a hit though the sampler plate was very hard to share (corn soup, dressed eggs and beef beignets recommended) but no one seemed thrilled with their entrees. My chicken didn't arrive looking very appealing and didn't taste much better though it was crispy. It was over a bed of cabbage type stuff and that didn't help a lot. The duck was not a bit hit either. By the end of the meal, service seemed to be stretched a bit thin and the quiet, calm atmosphere and become a bit rowdy and it was no longer possible to hear one another easily, the chocolate tart was worth sticking it out.

    Had an incredible, flawless meal with my wife and a friend. Every dish was vibrant, well balanced and satisfying. Great oysters, really solid cocktails and a great wine list. We had a delicious California zin that matched well with both the pork belly and hen of the woods mushroom entrees. The side of snow peas with ramps and beef bacon was a surprise hit. Love this place. Highly recommend!

Even in a neighborhood with so many great places, we would definitely go back again and again. Try the lamb burger (rare), and the braised bacon and bok choy slaw sandwich (put an egg on it)!

    Beautiful & Bright inside. Very attentive staff. Delicious dishes. Nice wines by the glass. Easy to reserve a table because the place was nearly empty. No idea why because it is reasonably priced, nice atmosphere and great fresh food. Check it out. I actually reminded me why I used to love brooklyn...because it used to be possible to get a table and have a delicious & comfortable meal.

    All of us enjoyed the food, which was superbly done. But everything was slow. Drinks took forever to arrive. Snack didn't come until after the first course and after we checked with the wait staff. The restaurant was not even busy, less than half full. Can't image how slow it would be on weekend evenings. Not sure we would go back because it was too frustrating to wait.
