Diner Reviews
  • "With all the great choices in Durham, we should not forget that one of its oldest, fine-dining restaurants is still one of its very best. Outstanding food and polished service! There are many reasons why Parizade has stood the test of time."

  • "There were many lovely choices on the menu, and the food was prepared very well. Flavors were delicious, and the servers were friendly and efficient. I had to change the dinner reservation time for our Thursday outing pretty much at the last minute, and the hostess was gracious about this."

  • "Excellent. The halibut may be the best I have ever had and I am from New England. Our server was fabulous- knowledgable, attentive but never overbearing. The courtyard was a lovely outside option."

  • "Made online reservations for 10 for my extended family here for my niece's wedding. My brothers and sister had not been to Parizade since my wedding reception was held there in June of 1991! My group is not easy to please (one is from Cincinnati, one from Asheville) and they were so impressed. We were a happy crowd when we arrived and happier when we left. Great food, wonderful service and an atmosphere that allowed us to be ourselves. I was proud to take them there."

It is tucked away on the ground floor of a tall building so easy to drive by. We would recommend for a romantic dinner for two or for a special occasion."

The food was outstanding as always including the presentation that my guest commented on several times. Portion size was perfect and we concluded by sharing the double banana Napoleon dessert. Overall it was a great place to have a extended lunch with great food, wonderful service and excellent ambiance."

This was our second visit and we were not disappointed. Ask for a table in the well shaded courtyard - it makes the ambience even nicer."

  • "Parizade is one of my Durham favorites. The food always excellent. My only reservation is that the acoustics are such that it is often difficult to hear my fellow diners and/or the wait staff. I have a couple of friends with hearing issues who will not patronize Parizade."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "I've been coming to Parizade for nearly 17 years & have yet to be disappointed in the food or experience. Service was excellent as were our meals, esp. the fish of the day. Dessert was the only disappointment. In the past, Parizade has had great desserts, but our 2 (a chocolate praline cake & an orange/almond cake, which was better) were not great. They were good/adequate, but next time, I'll skip dessert here. The inner courtyard is lovely for outdoor dining & waitstaff were attentive, helpful, professional, & thoughtful. Wine list good. We were celebrating a birthday, & without being asked, the restaurant served the desserts on special "fancy" plate, & added a candle. Parizade remains one of the best restaurants in the Triangle."
