Awesome food as always. Seated
Awesome food as always. Seated near hostess station and they were fooling/joking around which was slightly distracting. Awesome food as always. Will be back for sure.

Wonderful, knowledgeable, accommodating staff, excellent menu and nuanced presentation. Will definitely go again; hotel venue a little bit of a surprise but worth the exploration.

Great food-- innovative for this part of Fairfield County. I like how fresh things are and the variety of vegetables that they serve. I'd definitely recommend.

Nice find in Trumbull
Lovely presentation, well-crafted,imaginative fare, Server was sweet and helpful. But--it's pricey for anyone who isn't on an expense account. I was there to celebrate a friends birthday (lunch). I will return!

Three times visiting this new hot spot and quite happy. Favorites include the Lady Killer (a margarita with jalapeño infused tequila), the grass fed burger, the Mahi, the Brussels sprouts and I required you to enjoy the adult grilled cheese as an app.

Parallel Post is a unique dining experience for this part of Fairfield County. If you haven't been yet, you definitly want to give it a try.
We've been to Parallel Post at least six times now, and our experience has been uniformly great. I read some of the other reviews on here and am surprised by the one's that are negative because based on my multiple experiences there, I don't get it. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the food; they seem proud of what comes out of the kitchen-- always a good sign!
Parallel Post is a restaurant with a casual, modern atmosphere, but where the food is anything but casual.

Great food needs its own place
This is a wonderful Welcome to a suburb instead of chain restaurants. Everything was top notch and fresh. The wine and servers were excellent. The only thing that its lacking is a matching ambiance. Its in a hotel which is not bad thing per say, but the way its designed is all wrong. It is very open air looking like part of the hotel bar. I was not expecting a view of Sports on TVs and someones wedding going on a stones throw away. It made it hard to get that romantic and upscale feel that the food deserves.

We hit it on a wrong night
Normally, this is a real "neighborhood gem." This night there happened to be a crowd from out of town watching "the game" on the bar tv. They were very noisy. The poor staff was so apologetic that they could not provide their usual nice quiet dining experience. They were so gracious. It was not their fault! The food was wonderful, and we did not fault them for something beyond their control. We will certainly be back.

Last minute reservation
Found this through Open Table after a 14 hr day of volunteering. It was just perfect -good food and service. We'd go back again.

Great Food and Service but
Great Food and Service but being in the lobby area of the hotel made it noisy and less intimate.

great food for a hotel bar.
Took my girlfriend on a date here and while the food was top notch it was very loud and it felt like it was a part of the hotel lobby. None of the reviews mention this fact. The sea salt and vinegar fries on the starters menu had us asking for another serving. I ended up having the signature double burger and it was outstanding, however I came to have the skirt steak that this place is supposed to be famous for and they were out of it that night. All in all it was a great experience but not quite what I expected and a little too loud for my taste. sound level was a constant 100 DB. Had a hard time talking to my date.

We have stayed at this Marriott before and were very pleased to try this new restaurant located right in the hotel. It offers a diverse menu - simple sandwich to complete dinner - which we really appreciate when we travel.

This was our second time at Parralel Post and we were not disappointed. The food is excellent, as is the ambiance and service. The tables are placed far apart so it's easy to converse with your dinner companions. This is the best thing to happen in Trumbull in years. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Loved our lunch for son's
Loved our lunch for son's 21st birthday. Note that if you want to order something for lunch (like the BLT clams) that is not on the lunch menu, ask and they may be able to accommodate you. We did and absolutely loved the clams. Grilled cheese was tasty (lots of table sharing went on). Scallop salad entree was very nice; perfectly seared. Excellent mixed drinks and beer flights. Outstanding!

Better Experience This Time
Been here several times & vowed to return for the bar only as in my experience, PP can be loud. Kudos to the hostess who found us an excellent quiet table. The charcuterie app was very generous & could easily be shared by 4. Hubby's seasonal salad was delicious as were short ribs & braised lamb. The lamb was unexpected-it was shredded over sun choke gratin, like a reverse shepherd's pie but my husband did enjoy it. The chocolate pan a cotta dessert is reason enough to come here & TO DIE FOR! Most importantly, the service was outstanding. It appears they work in teams; we were attended by no less than 3 servers + the manager who ensured we had everything we needed at all times! & with pleasant and happy attitudes! Will be back for dinner!

I surprised my sweetheart with birthday dinner here and we were very pleased. Every bite and sip of everything we ordered was excellent. The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating (I take a long time to make a decision and always wind up asking for descriptions and recommendations - our server was very patient with me!). I will be needing to go back and try some other dishes. My tip for restaurant-goers would be to definitely order something with yummy veggies - they all tasted very fresh and, despite my usual preference for red meat (which was also very good here!), were probably the highlight of my meal!

Best addition to Trumbull
It has been a year that Parallel Post has been here in Trumbull and it really is a great place to go. I have never been disappointed with the menu .

Great Food, Very Noisy
The Restaurant is very open - tables near a busy hallway and the bar area. It was Christmas season, so there were Holiday parties going on in the banquet rooms across front the restaurant.

Imaginative menu, fresh ingredients, served by a dedicated, caring staff! The food was plated beautiful and the price was reasonable!
