We have eaten at parallel Post any number of times and the reason why we continue to return is that it is always a good experience for us.

The restaurant is located within the Marriott Hotel and is very clean and comfortable. The service was quick and accommodating and the food delicious. Would definitely eat here again.

We used to love this place. Very disappointed by our last visit. Service was awful. Had to remind our server about our drinks multiple times. Menu was limited.

Slow in food coming out this time, perhaps due to a wedding in the hotel; the dining room itself was quite empty however. Food prep is consistently quite good + farm-to-table fare is unusual for a hotel dining room—hence, we like catching a meal here even though we live in town. Marriott Bonvoy points are a plus.

Surprisingly good food. Service was prompt and attentive. This is a lobby restaurant in the Marriott hotel which is fine but a different experience which we weren’t prepare for. Overall, food more than offset the TVs and music in the background.

I would not recommend this restaurant for lunch. They a VERY limited menu and not many customers. so they also reduced staff. They should probably close for lunch.

Pleasant looking restaurant in lobby of Marriott. Young people running thru lobby in bathing suits. Current louder music playing above our heads.
Waiter inexperienced but pleasant. Food was nice. Hamburger my husband had was excellent. (According to him). My chicken was quite tasty while a bit
Dried out. Creme brûlée dessert was excellent. Decaf coffee was excellent.

Overall, we enjoyed a good meal. It is always lively at the restaurant. Service is extremely slow, not sure if they just don’t have enough wait staff!

One of my favorite "local" restaurants for date night, a quiet girls night or family dinner. It's a hidden gem tucked away in a beautiful Marriott Hotel. Beautiful ambience, with large, spread out tables, so you aren't on top of the people dining next to you. Excellent hand-crafted cocktails. And great food! Their brussel sprouts are the best around, and their cauliflower appetizer, adult grilled cheese appetizer, and ALL of their desserts are excellent! You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

Food and service was great, however, I didn't realize it was located in a hotel. Not terrible for a location but was looking for a quite romantic dinner for date-night with my husband. The restaurant was open to the hotel lobby.

The restaurant is in a Marriott with large TV screens, so not quiet or cozy. The food was adequate... burger good. Ok for a light meal. Nothing special.

Cocktails were TERRIBLE. Luckily our waiter was good & replaced the drink with a simple Bourbon & Coke. The barratta salad was good. Overall just a hotel restaurant.

The food served is really not as good as the price point, which means we did not get a good value. In addition, we dressed according to the price point (that is, nice) and there were plenty of diners in sweatpants, flip flops, and T-shirts. Lastly, our entrees were brought out when we were barely halfway through our appetizers. No thanks, we will not be back.

Good food, easy to get into on short notice. Full dinners or burgers.
Who knew a hotel restaurant could be so good?

Parallel Post is terrific! Not just for hotel guests- as locals we eat there often and are guaranteed great food and drinks! Recently our Christmas Eve plans fell through and they were open with cheerful attentive staff despite a quiet night, and the meal was amazing as always. Highly recommend!

I wish that open table had indicated that the restaurant was in a Marriot Hotel first of all. The seating was all within a bar with very loud music (and terrible - 80’s and 90’s pop) we asked to be seated elsewhere, but they didn’t have any quieter area. It was very difficult to have conversation. The food was just ok, but the service (Jonathan) was outstanding.

The menu is somewhat limited, but the dishes were all good and the quality high. Very surprising to find a locavore approach in a chain hotel. We went on a holiday -- the 4th of July -- figuring it would be open because it's in a hotel, but probably wouldn't be crazy busy. It met our expectations on that front and exceeded on the food front.

Food was excellent! We ordered and shared their Caesar salad and a grilled skirt steak. Both plates were different than usual; the salad was dry but heavy on the parmesian and generous with the croutons. It was also a large portion that two could share. The steak was served medium rare with a light glaze, sliced potatoes and a type of broccoli Rabe / broccoli hybrid I'd never had before. Add to that an excellent Malbec (sauvignon blanc for my wife - also superb) and we had an outstanding meal. Great service too. We plan to go back.

My husband ate here once before and said that the grassfed burger was outrageous and wanted to go back! I was open to it, I even looked up the menu before hand, knowing that my mom, myself and my daughter would all want salmon for dinner. The menu online said Pan-Roasted Salmon, however when we got there I asked why the menu was different and they said that the menu online was really old and they don't update it at all.... Had I know that, I would have maybe chose a different restaurant.

Parallel Post is NOT your typical hotel restaurant. This farm to table restaurant has delicious food and fantastic drinks. The brussel sprouts and cauliflower sides are a must try! It's the perfect spot for a date night or a get together with a group of friends.

Attentive and flexible staff - knew the menu well. Local farm fresh foods were interesting. An event at the hotel made it a bit noisy, but not unbearable.
