The way Pure has been transformed
The way Pure has been transformed is amazing. I felt like I was in a trendy restaurant in NYC, not Parsippany. The menu was extensive, something for everyone. From appetizers to dessert, everything we ordered was delicious. The service was very attentive. The atmosphere was quiet enough to have a conversation, but lively enough to feel like you were at a club.

Lounge in Parsippany...finally.
Interesting ambiance. Prompt, courteous service, server with good knowledge of dishes. Sushi is very good. Drinks are good too. After 11 pm on weekends, place turns into a lounge with DJ. Worth visit if you are looking for good food and atmosphere. Good for a date, dinner with friends. If you are sitting by the bar, Todd (bartender) is very knowledgeable and makes awesome martinis.

Nice new neighborhood place
We had a 7:00 reservation; the two young hostesses said they only had a table for us between two large parties. I located a table by the bar area that was quiet. Put larger parties in the separate room by the bar. The tables for 2 are small. The fire & ice shrimp was a yummy appetizer. I ordered the grilled chicken over basmati rice and my date had the yellowtail sushi & volcano roll. Both meals were well prepared and tasty! For dessert we had tres leches cheesecake & the hazelnut semi freddo. Both were delicious!

We had a great anniversary dinner. It was very quiet when we got there at 630 but became more filled and vibrant as the evening went on. The food was amazing, and our waitress was very accommodating with helping me understand what the dish tasted like! The only drawback was that, even with a reservation and being there early, we were sat in front near the entrance and hostess stand.

I was apprehensive when I realized this place was connected to a Holiday Inn, but the outside shows nothing of what you find inside. The food was fantastic and the service super friendly. Great bar, and fun atmosphere!

Will go back
Had an excellent meal at this French/American/Asian fusion restaurant. Started with sushi that was so fresh a tasty. The veal chop was huge and perfectly cooked . The scallops were beautifully prepared but a bit more spicier than expected. I would have given service a 5 except that we felt that we were a bit rushed to order. The waiter soon realized we weren't going to be rushed and so we ended up having a wonderful and leisurely meal.
The place is huge but having small rooms made it more intimate. The bar is a great place to hang out. There are also tables there to have a small or full meal.

If you like sushi, go for omakase
We got there early (5:30) and sat in the bar for a drink. The place was deserted and the bartender very friendly and accommodating. We sat in one of the dining rooms for dinner. Again, not many people so it was quiet. We love sushi so we went for the omakase. Nicely done, well presented, imaginative blend of flavors throughout.The sushi came all at once and there was a surprisingly large number of pieces. Definitely a bargain for omakase. We had the lava cake with caramel center and hazelnut ice cream. The lava cake was excellent. Service was very good. Overall, a very nice dining experience. The place was packed when we left and fairly noisy so getting there early is best if you want a quiet dinner.

Sushi and steaks
My wife and I both decided to stick with the sushi side of the menu for our first time at Pure. I had the crab cakes appetizer - chock full with crab and enough for two people to share easily) - and my wife had a sugar cane beet salad, which was more like a raw beet carpaccio with goat cheese and greens - very different and very tasty. Most of the sushi rolls caters to those who like the spicy side, but they were all fresh and tasty. We will definitely return and give the steak/seafood side of the menu and chance, also.

Good place but....
The food here was very good. Was our second time here (1st time only had appetizers by the bar). The entries and appetizers are very well prepared, fresh and good. My only complaints was the waiter was at times clueless regarding some of the menu items or was hardly present. The second issue was they had a DJ playing music. While I love club music, I don't want to be screaming to speak to a person who is literally a few feet away from me. Overall, I would go back here again.

Service had improved!
The food reviews sounded good, but the service reviews were lousy. Service has definitely improved! We were greeted warmly & seated right away. The first waiter reviewed some of the popular items on the menu. He took our drink order & a second waiter took our food order. Both were attentive, knowledgable, friendly, & professional. The drinks, appetizers, dinners, & dessert were all delicious. Cocktails were strong. Wine was chilled appropriately. The yellowfin appetizer & tuna tartar were super fresh & tasty. We had sea bass & the steak special for dinner. I cleaned my plate! The steak was not super hot, but was cooked perfectly. We shared dessert - trio of creme brûlée, which was the proper temperature & yummy. We'll definitely go back.

Diverse menu and great food
Went for the first time on Friday night with my wife and daughetr after passing by in the car somany times. We were quite pleased. The restaurant is docorated nicely and the food was excellent. The sushi was very fresh and the pad thai (I got it spicy) was one of the best I have had. Portion sizes were good and the menu is not at all overpriced (NYC quality at suburban prices). I saw some reviews where people cmplained about the service, but our service was great. Note that we did sit down at 6:30 PM, so a bit early. They have an extensive kids menu as well, which is always a plus.
