Taste a slice of Italy at the Parlor Suburban Square. This family-friendly bistro offers classic Italian fare, with a menu built around delicious crowd-pleasing pizza and draft wine. For a hearty treat, try the beastmode pizza, which comes topped with calabrese, salcissa, mozzarella and oregano. The menu also includes salads and pasta dishes. Happy hour at Parlor Suburban Square runs from 4.30 to 6.30, and comes with great discounts on wine and bar grub, such as sliders, brussel sprouts and tasty wings.

With its airy space, cozy lounge and laid-back vibe, the Parlor Suburban Square is a great place to enjoy a casual lunch or to hang out with friends or family for a few drinks.

I will miss Parlor Suburban Square and more importantly the wonderful people who worked there. Melissa Z, the GM, is phenomenal and more importantly a good person. I also will miss Chef Rich, Pat and Greg. I will follow each of them wherever they each end up.

Another wonderful dinner at Parlor Suburban Square! This time I tried the spaghetti with shrimp (I actually switched out the spaghetti for Campanelle) and it was DELICIOUS!! All the pasta is home made along with the bread and pizza dough.

They continue to add to their menu. The new salmon entree looked very good!

Special thanks to Melissa and Chef Rich for always making the night special.

Just back – again – from Happy Hour / Dinner and it was better than ever.
The ambience is open, modern, and not loud or cramped – whether you choose the bar, bar booths, open tables in the dining room or banquettes. It is fun to see the Operational Pizza oven at the back of the restaurant, but don’t be misled – there are many other food options.

Their Happy Hour is extremely good – great inexpensive wines, tasty wings, sliders, Brussel sprouts, and a new offering – very lightly tempura battered cauliflower (delicious)! The pita bread is excellent – warm and fresh from the oven. They also feature salads (try their Cici salad), as well as burgers, pasta etc. – all served in a prompt but unhurried manor. The pizzas are very good – and they will accommodate your requests. (We like our pizza fairly crisp with a thin crust).

A special jewel is Melissa, the manager. She is extremely personable and sets the tone to insure that all customers have a truly superior dining experience. Kudos to Melissa!!

There is a diversity of people dining, depending on the time of day. Business people, chic professionals meeting after work, families dining early with their young, sports lovers watching the bar TVs, and trendy couples just enjoying a great meal together.
Now that the weather is warmer, we can’t wait until the outside patio opens!! There is also a Sunday Brunch.

Parlor is a good neighborhood restaurant. Food is good, not extraordinary, and is reasonably priced. Not loud. Ambiance is pleasant.

Seated promptly for early Saturday night. Food & portion size was large. Wife & I shared salad & had enough to take home. I had a large serving of mussels in a tasty tomato broth. My wife had a burger which she said was very good.

They did the whole meal right: drinks, appetizer, entre, dessert and service. All first class.
