    Great service, better drinks. We arrived with our party were seated almost immediately, and we’re able to get food and drinks quite quickly. Great experience!

    The host was great! We had a reservation and the only table open was right by the door. He sat us there temporarily and then moved us as soon as a booth opened up. That shows real consideration. But the server?!? Oy. Boyfriend asks, “Are these mocktails” regarding their Zero-proof cocktails. She seemed unsure and said, “um… similar. I mean, they have no alcohol.” 😂 I have allergies and asked that the broccoli I ordered be made with only olive oil, butter and garlic. No Chile flakes or onions. Nothing spicy or acidic. She DID put the chili flakes and onions on the side, but there was still something super spicy in the dish. I asked if there was tomato or onions on one of the pizzas and she said, “hmmm, I don’t think so, no.” Not super reassuring when you’ve got dietary restrictions. The service overall was SLOW! True, they were very busy. But she never came back to check on us after our food arrived. And when we finally saw her (and asked for more water for my tea and the table) she never refilled the table water. Then she dropped the check and never came to pick it up. We watched her standing at the bar visiting with people while we sat wondering if (after 20 minutes of this) we should just walk out?!? Of course we got up and handed it to her. No apology from her. I usually love Parlour and have gotten good service in the past. This gal obviously didn’t know what she was doing. Perhaps it’s just a part of a general trend of tanking service here in the Bay. 🤷‍♀️ As someone who worked in hospitality (and waited tables) for 30+ years, it’s hard to see. Do better, Parlour, or I’ll be afraid to come back. I was embarrassed in front of our friends for recommending the place after this poor showing. And it was their first time. I seriously doubt they’ll be back.

    Food was just fair. - Pizza tasted good but had a limp crust with little chew to it. - Rigatoni was overcooked to the point of being almost waterlogged. - Caesar salad tasted good but was very overdressed. Service was friendly but easily flummoxed by basic questions ("what gin do you have?").

    The ambiance and the service are on point, but the real show stopper is the cuisine! The executive chef stopped by our table to share how she used simple culinary ingredients to make such tasty dishes. The outstanding dish for me was the brussels sprouts. The lemony, crispy texture was the best I’ve ever eaten. The menu is going to change incorporating new seasonal ingredients. I cannot wait to check out what delicious morsels are about to come!

    super cute place, great food but boy was the service lacking. our waiting seemed very absentminded and forgot us. every time he said he'd be back with something we had to ask someone else for it to get it to us. Probably just an off night. but we did enjoy it.

    New to Oakland and this was a great discovery, the menu is limited, lots of pizza choices though and it seemed popular, but we did main courses and they were really well done, the octopus was especially good, actually it was perfect, woody taste, not chewy and presentation was great, Mussel broth was extra special too. Drinks were very nice, inventive but not over done with ingredients, looking to come back

    The best part of the meal was the 100 OpenTable points. The place is cold in both senses. The waitress was clearly in the wrong profession. The food was acceptable but certainly not worth a second visit. Luckily there are a number of other much better choices in the area.

    We ate outdoors, heat lamps would have been nice. But noise level indoors was impossible. Super yummy food. Plenty of vegetable-based selections. Giant salad big enough for a family. By contrast small serving octopus. Chef came out and talked to us about my diet requests, yay! We were so appreciative. In contrast, waitress seemed to know nothing about the Amari or the drink selections. Despite all, we would gladly come back here for the food, and it was quite affordable.

    What a lovely find! Excellent food (the sauces were especially delicious). Had the meatballs, the roast chicken, the branzino. We didn't have the pizza, but it smelled and looked fantastic coming out of the kitchen. The service was really good, nearly all stars, just a little slow to get to us in the beginning. That being said we ended up asking for extra sauce and it wasn't a problem. The chef stopped by to chat, which was fun. We will definitely head back next time we're out and about in the area.

    Went early on a Tuesday evening - 6:00 PM. We were a bit early and were seated immediately. Staff was attentive but not obtrusive, and extremely helpful with questions. The food was delicious, outstanding, in fact. Noise level rose later in the evening - might be a problem on a weekend night. This was my friend's first visit, and we're already planning for the next one.

    We waited a half hour to get our cocktails The server sent someone else to tell us they had no diet cole or ginger ale after 40 minutes The branzino was the tiniest piece I’ve ever had…not even appetizer size When I asked the waiter about this he looked embarrassed and blamed it on the chef I had to eat another meal somewhere else afterwards Though the help is nice there is a huge disconnect between the staff and the needs of the diners I won’t go back

    Food was surprisingly fantastic, great flavors, interesting contemporary take on Italian cuisine. Arancini with fungi and truffle oil appetizer and meatballs appetizer both fantastic, with expressive, distinct flavors. Service was mediocre. Desserts disappointing - a tiramisu that was mushy, lethargic and lacking taste. We sat outside which was nice. The inside ambiance is very nice. I would return for the food quality. Would like to see service improved.

    Great food but environment needs work. The table was so sticky our menu stuck to it! The room is a huge cavern and the music made it very difficult to hear. Service was trying but the bar was so backed up that drinks took forever. I hope they can improve these issues because the food was really good!

    Great food, good ambience. They have fantastic cocktails--including a mezcal-based drink with ginger that leaves me craving it. The summer menu has some tasty pizzas, including one with roasted corn and another with wild mushrooms. The smoked trout salad is delish!

    This was our first time to Parlour and most likely our last unfortunately. We had high hopes considering the vibe seemed nice and the menu seemed diverse. It ultimately came down to the service and the offerings. Having a full bar we decided to order two martinis and waited for 15 minutes to find out that they didn't have the ingredients to make the drinks. The server even came out 10 minutes after ordering to clarify the type of vodka we wanted. Then we ordered two salads - the caesar and a beet salad. The caesar came out 10 minutes later which was fine but the beet salad never made it out. The server came to the table 15 minutes later to inform me that they didn't have the beet salad. I'm fine if an item is missing but I waited 25 minutes after ordering to find out they didn't have it. An hour into the meal the server came to the table to apologize for the service and offered to refresh our drinks - which then showed up on the bill. The main courses were ok but the pasta was cooked about 2 minutes too long. It's possible that the server was new - but the management really failed on providing a great experience.

    Overall the food was delicious and my cocktail was amazing. But the salad had too much dressing on it and I had to scrape it off. The outdoor dining is a little loud because it's built out into the street but I really appreciate it being able to be outside on such a lovely evening. This is a perfect place to dine when you're going to show it the fall a little bit upscale and not overly pricey for the quality food.
