We always have a great experience at Parlor. The lobster sandwich is amazing...and we like the calamari! The waiter could have been more attentive though.

Always a great experience
We have been to this place for Mother's Day brunch, Thanksgiving Day, a romantic date night and now as a work function. The food is always great, the staff is friendly and the wine list is impressive. We have never been disappointed when we chose to dine here. The UES needed a steak house and this is just what the neighborhood ordered.

Very nice I can only recommend, specially also as afterwork :-):-)

Best brunch in NYC
Parlor is my absolute favorite brunch place in NYC!! $27 Price fixe which includes up to 5 beverages (the most i've had was 3)...my all time favorite is their Bloody Mary. Hands down, best one I've ever had. I usually get the Eggs Benedict, which is traditionally served on english muffins but here they serve it on a yummy biscuit....it's fantastic. Usually brunch fills me up but I was with a group that wanted dessert so I gave in and had the tiramasu. Oh my goodness, it is served in a glass & it was absolutely HEAVENLY! I wish i could give Parlor 10 stars. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! :)

This is a great neighborhood
This is a great neighborhood restaurant with delicious food and a welcoming staff. It's nice to also sit at the bar and eat as the atmosphere is lovely both in the dining room and at the bar!

Brunch on the Upper East Side
Parlor House does a nice job for brunch. The bloody mary's were very good. My companion and I shared an egg, bacon and spinach frittata which was very tasty. We also shared a chopped salad which was good, although I think this should have contained beans which I did not find in the salad. Noise level is energetic. I recommend sitting in the side tables near the windows. Service was adequate.

Loved the Price-Fixe
We sat downstairs so that Grandma could hear better. It was much quieter than the upstairs and stayed pretty quiet until it got later and more families started showing up with babies. It was still just fine and we could hear perfectly well. The wait staff was very friendly and let us stay for a long time after dinner/dessert until we asked for the check. The price-fixe menu was fantastic. I hadn't realized that it was for weekdays and not just Restaurant Week! We will definitely be going back. I recommend the filet mignon and tomato bisque!

Good food and great service, however music too loud at times.

Great Saturday brunch outdoors. Sometimes you can be forgotten when dining outside, but our server was on top of it. Food was great, and the bottomless drink brunch special well worth it
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for the weekend brunch special ($27 for entree + 5 cocktails) and was pleasantly surprised by how delicious it was. We'd made a reservation, but opted to wait a few extra minutes for a table outside. While waiting at the bar we were taken care of attentively and then at the table (which was free only 5 minutes after we sat at the bar) we were treated to impeccable service. Highly recommend the eggs benedict on a biscuit, as well as the outstanding BLT fritatta. I will certainly be returning to Parlor!

Constantly improving----well worth visiting.

A late afternoon lunch for my birthday. Service was excellent, friendly, efficient, charming. Food was excellent, filet mignon and the chopped salad. Ambience was modern, elegant, clean and comfortable. Will definitely return, thank you!

Food was very good as always. Great setting for a business lunch. However, waitress was less than enthusiastic and rather unpleasant. This has been an exception to my typical service experience here so perhaps she was just having a bad day...
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was good, the mimosas were awesome, but the servers were absolutely the best. Very attentive and hilarious, we felt like we were being served by a friend! I don't think we ever saw the bottom of a mimosa before another arrived - which is exactly what we wanted!

Had a wonderful experience here during restaurant week. Though an excellent value, choices were limited. Look forward to going back for a special occasion.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lots of UES restaurants but not lots of good ones. While this is a steak house, they have a great menu including an outstanding seafood bar. Service is friendly and attentive. Can't say enough good things about it.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Work Dinner
Went here for a business dinner and had a very good experience. Great service and food. Very attentive waitress and wonderful wine list.

A surprising gem
Tucked away on the corner of Third and 90th, Parlor Steakhouse is an entirely different level of food and service than other neighborhood restaurants. From the cocktail list to dessert and everything between, this is a fantastic restaurant. Highly recommended.

Great Night At Parlor Steakhouse
I had such a nice night at Parlor Steakhouse. The food, service and outdoor seating were great. My girlfriend and I had such a nice time, we're thinking about going back there with more friends next week. The restaurant week menu was great, but I believe they have a similar menu during non-restaurant week periods.

This was our first time at the restaurant and certainly not our last. We all loved our dinners from start to finish, especially the watermelon gazpacho. I would definitely recommend Parlor Steakhouse to others.

Great place on the UES, a little pricey considering the restaurants in the area.

Taste Bud Treat
It was a delight! I've been here once before and was impressed so I came again, with a friend and she raved about her filet mignon.
I can also boast about my salmon dish. Superb! I shall come again.

Dinner with Friends
Dinner of three - drinks were delicious and the server recommend two terrific wines by the glass. Meals were all prepared and delivered in a timely fashion. All was amazing. The only negative comment I have is for the service closing out the check. We split the check (1/3 and 2/3rd). However, the busboy (not server) did it wrong and on the wrong cards. Manager fixed it but didn't fix split. Other than that, we were all very happy.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our favorite, the hanger steak, with French fries, and the shared Caesar salad, always pleases. As usual, the service was efficient and friendly. A great addition to the neighborhood..

Great Neighborhood Restaurant
Unless you head over to Madison Ave., there are so few nice restaurants on the eastside above 86th St. Parlor is indeed a neighborhood gem. The food is consistently good and well presented, the menu always interesting. The hostesses and waitstaff do an excellent job handling the always bustling dinner and brunch crowd. A shout out to Hugo, one of the many competent bartenders, who is always so efficient and kind.
The decor, while not awful, could stand a little added warmth. I prefer the ambiance of the small room in front of the bar,however, it can be noisy there. It's nice to have sidewalk seating when weather permits, but it's time to update the outdoor cafe look.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wait staff was very friendly and responsive and the food was very good. Highly recommended!
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for brunch!
They have a great brunch deal...$27 for five brunch cocktails and a brunch entree....my only complaint would be limited entree selection. Service is great...we never had to look for our server he was very attentive without over doing it. My friend and I had basic eggs, sausage toast and was really good. I've had other things before and good is consistently good. A great neighborhood spot.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loud, but lovable
The dining room is a bit noisy. However, the food and service make up for the noise. I had a special order of a salad turned into an entree portion with chicken strips added on top, which came out spectacularly. Meaning they specialize in items other than steak.

Great Brunch, Strange Waiter
Aside from the "off" waiter, my friend and I enjoyed a great boozy brunch. Really good food, fast service and yummy drinks.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
This restaurant has managed to stay consistently good for a few years now.
The food is well prepared and tasty.
I have never been dissapointed.

Loved it from the beginning
This is such a welcome addition to the UES 90's neighborhood. I have enjoyed numerous occasions there whether it was for a quiet dinner, watching a sporting event or brunch. The food is excellent and the staff is friendly, professional and attentive, not to mention very attractive. The free potato chips are to "die for"! I am looking forward to returning alone or with friends and family.

Great neighborhood gem
Nice to FINALLY see something succeed in this spot -- Parlor has been here a number of years now and really found its place in the neighborhood. The food is consistently good and the service is great.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent dining experience
We were 6 people and we all enjoyed our meals. We could hear each other perfectly. I always love the chopped salad and the chicken. I do not eat steak but everyone enjoyed it. We were on a time constraint but our service was efficient and on time without feeling rushed. Two people enjoyed the well priced 3 course dinner. I would definitely come back.

Best Place for Brunch in the UES
I always come to The Parlor for brunch in the UES. It is truly a neighborhood gem and has the best "bottomless" brunch in my neighborhood. The food is delicious and there is something for everyone. It is also reasonably priced $27.

Best Brunch on the Upper East Side
The weekend brunch is outstanding. The burgers are delicious and the best bloody mary in the area. The scene is fun but sophisticated.

Great Neighboorhood Gem
While not a NY powerhouse steak house, it is still an excellent find. Attentive, friendly, helpful waitstaff. Great variety of food on the menu. Our party had Seniors and Kids, eveyone found something that they liked. The food was really great; my kids loved the meatball sliders. The Salmon Tartar starter was a treat. The normal burgers were big and juicy. The Tuna entree was also perfectly cooked. They had nice steaks too. I was underwhelmed by the wine list, while it has depth, it just did not speak to me. But there was a nice selection of beers, so all was still good! We will definately be going back. We look forward to becoming regulars. Another nice plus - it did not break the bank either!
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a Winner
This Thanksgiving was our family's 4th year dining here and we have always been pleased! From the warm welcome at the front door, to our attentive wait staff & waiter, and of course, the fabulous food that has never disappointed, we love this restaurant. And am glad to hear they are expanding and opening up a second restaurant nearby. Would highly recommend for any occasion.

Festive for a group
We celebrated my uncle's birthday here on Friday night of Thanksgiving weekend. There were 7 of us, and we made our reservation fairly last minute. I have weekend brunch at Parlor regularly and I wasn't sure if the dinner vibe would be just as rowdy or too chill. The restaurant was busy when we arrived but they were able to sit us quickly. The noise level was moderate to high for a restaurant, but our group quickly matched the energy level, joked with our waiter, and started opening bottles of champagne to celebrate the family birthday. Paul, the sommelier, was very accommodating and helpful to us, and the service was overall excellent. We ordered the seafood tower to share, and then each of us ordered steaks. Everything was delicious.
