  • Pretty decent
    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.

    The restaurant is well done and looks great inside. It's open, stylish and comfortable. The staff and service was great, from the moment you walk in to the time you are leaving. The food was not spectacular. Pasta was stuck together, and tasteless. Limited desert options as well. Overall, not what you expect from Italian food, and not high enough quality to consider it a fresh take on Italian.

    After reading all the reviews on here, we were looking forward to an extremely tasty meal. Unfortunately, it was possibly the blandest meal my husband and I have ever had! We both had flatbread that had zero flavour. Mine was supposed to be very garlicky, and I couldn't even taste any! We had to order a dip on the side just to get some flavour. I was very disappointed and we will not be going back.

    The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed their meals. The server and kitchen went to extra lengths to accommodate my food allergies and provide me with options. The wait for our food was very lengthy, and until we asked, we were not given any indication of delays or told how long of a wait to expect. I would not have minded the wait very much if our server had told us there were some very large parties upstairs causing the kitchen delays.

    The ambience and the service was really good. The manager came and talked to our group directly and he was awesome and very welcoming. The food was good but not fantastic, especially for the prices. But the pizza was pretty good and reasonably priced. The place itself is super nice and the patio is pretty. They have parking which is really good for downtown. Overall a good pick, I'd go back but just for the pizza.

    On both our visits we have tried the set menu (different on each occasion) and have been very impressed by the creativity of the offerings, the subtle combinations of flavours, textures and colours, and the attentive non pretentious service. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting. The patio is a lovely place that reminds us of summers spent in the Adriatic sea in Croatia and Italy. A true gem for people working and living in downtown Edmonton.
