  • Dont try the Tiramisu
    Annie
    Dined on 11/19/2014
    Tiramisu was awful. The lady finger biscuits were just that, not soaked in espresso as one would expect, they were decorated with peaked whipped cream points. The presentation was nice but just tossing espresso grounds around the circle of lady finger biscuits doesn't cut it. I can appreciate wanting to take things and put a spin on them with all the food competion TV, i.e. Iron Chef and Gordon Ramsay but this was a pure fail.

    My friend and I ordered the Caesar salad and the Alfredo fetucine. The salad and fetucine were served at the same time. We ate our salad first. It wasn't very tasty....probably too much water still left in it. Then, we tasted the fetucine which was also very fade and cold. They were also sticky and gross. We only ate a very small part of our portion and we stayed with a very bad taste in our month!!!

    Overall the Parlour and food was GREAT although the pizza was slightly runny / soggy in the center. The crust was delicious. Our waiter should stick to being just a waiter. His attempts at being funny weren't. He came across as being phony.

    Loved that this restaurant is open for Monday lunch and has lots of parking. Service was indifferent (overattentive to start and, once served, noticeably absent). Pizzas were tasty. Entrees overly expensive.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    The table that we were seated at, was tucked away by the server stand, so it wasn't the best table, but it was better than eating on the floor. They were short servers that night, so you could tell everyone was in a mad scramble. The server we had, was probably one of the managers, and did a great job, letting us know that it's busy, the kitchen is busy, so hold tight. We actually didn't wait too long for our food, so hooray for them. Overall - food was good, drinks were delicious, and the manager was excellent.

    We dined at Parlour as a last min family date and couldn't be happier. We were seated promptly for our reservation and our server greeted us and asked our names. Drinks were quick and we ordered a bunch of appies and a pizza. All of our good was fabulous! Top notch all around. If you haven't been, I highly recommend Parlour. I can't wait for summer to try out their lovely patio!

    I was at the Parlour with 5 girlfriends on Friday night. The food and service were great. The patrons were not. There was a man at the next table who kept offering to strip for us (we told him we werent interested several times - once in front of our waiter who did nothing). Towards the end of the evening, this same guy walked past our table completely naked from the waist down. The staff handled the situation very poorly. They were clearly not trained to deal with abusive patrons. I left feeling victimized.

    The food is fantastic, however the portions are quite small for the price you pay. I'm not a big eater at all and I wasn't full when I was done with my meal. With the family style menu I think this place would be better for large groups.

    This is a cool restaurant. We sat upstairs, overlooking the lounge and bartenders which was kind of neat. The Grinder sandwich was delicious. The spaghettinii and meatballs was lacking in flavour and overcooked pasta. First of all, this was not spaghettini - it was thick, overcooked spaghetti that really needed some proper cooking. Learn how to do pasta please. Our waitress was excellent and ambience was good. We'll give it a second chance.

    This was my 2nd time at this restaurant so I was going in as a fan. I've never found the food AMAZING, but enjoy it. I went with my family (4 of us) and we all got a pasta dish for our main. My mom, sister and I loved our food, but my dad's dish was really quite gross - look and taste. He got the Cajun chicken fettuccine special, which the server described as so spicy it made her sweat. The dish looked like a pile of orange mush topped with arugula and turned out to be exactly that. It was bland and the pasta was way overcooked, to the point where the noodles were sticking together in one giant lump. There was absolutely no kick to the dish, let alone enough spice to make one sweat. Our server was pleasant, but she way oversold the food.

    This is yet another experience with the Century Hospitality Group that was lacking. Food was one step above Denny's and the overall look of the restaurant is the only thing it has going. There are plenty of awesome independent restaurants in Edmonton, don't waste your time or money on anything via the Century group.

    After perusing the website, it didn't dissappoint in person! There are two different levels and I liked the split between Lounge and Dining. We had the Small Antipasto Board, The truffle Pizza and the Family Jewels Pizza, the Tiramisu and some beers. This is alot for two people and we ended up with a whole pizza for lunch the next day. But that was intentional as we went on Monday when all their Pizzas are $10. The Antipasto board was HUGE for a small and could easily feed 3-4 people. The pizzas were delishious with the crust being perfectly browned and crispy, yet chewy. Perfection. The Tiramisu wasn't like any i've ever had before and must be close to the real deal. Fabulous dinner overall! Will be back for sure.

    I really enjoy the patio at Parlour. Its enclosed, sheltered and the outside of the brick building gives it a good atmosphere. The food quality and service have been very good over a number of visits. I tend to go with the build your own Neapolitan style pizza. The cauliflower fritto and the risotto balls are also recommended.
