    Great food and service. The octopus was exceptionally tasty. Outside seating is nice, but noisy due to a busy cross street nearby.

    I had Lomo Saldato which was excellent. We shared the trio of empanadas and shared the beet salad corn and cheese empanada was a little sweet. I preferred the wild mushroom. Salad was a bit spicy and not enough feta cheese. Desserts did not look interesting so we passed. Had a Pisco Sour which was very refreshing.

    Menu has changed. Some new items that were just ok. Chicken chicharrones was very dry; cebiche chino lacked flavor; and portion sizes have reduced. The empanadas were consistent

    Wait staff attended to us pretty minimally. Food was good but smaller portions than expected. Chairs were so noisy when people shuffled or staff moved them. They made a terrible shriek that made everyone wince.

    Was not impressed with the food at all. Overall was bland, lacked spices and not flavorful. Was the first time trying this place and wanted to try Peruvian food. The server was not attentive at all - had to flag him down multiple times for every single request

    I never had Peruvian food before and always wanted to try it. I drive pass Parada almost every day and finally met some friends there for dinner. The atmosphere was great, not too loud so we were able to have great conversations. The food was really good, flavorful not too spicy. I would recommend to anyone.

    What a great food we had! It is probably the best food we had in the many years. So tasty and home like cooking food at the same time the sauce had such a delicious and unusual and pleasant taste! Everything was in balance and harmony in the dish. Also the food was very easily digestible and left us feel good for the rest of the day.

    I love this dining spot, the staff are attentive, nice and always with a smile that you won’t see in other restaurants. The food are tasty, I just noticed it’s not as good as our past dinings, however it was still tasty and I recommend get their rotisserie Peruvian chicken.

    Food was delicious and busboys were attentive and friendly. Our server seemed very confused about a few simple menu questions. Also we were a party of 2 and one of our main’s was brought out 15 minutes before the other’s was so it just sat waiting at the table.

    Went to Parada last night for the first time and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious, the combination of flavors and texture was spot on. Drinks were amazing, and dessert perfect. I can’t wait to go back and am still dreaming of the chino albacore ceviche and pisco sours.

    I’ve eaten here several times and the food is fantastic. Ceviche of the day was divine. I had the fish of the day (sea bass) and it was so well prepared. My sister and I both had the house sangria. Absolutely loved it.

    Delicious food, so fresh, nicely seasoned. Service was a little disjointed with the outdoors but very good overall, and there are parts of the outside area that are very windy, so carry a jacket if you are going to be sitting outdoors.

    Parada is a lovely restaurant with an ambiance of Peru. The food had great taste and flavors. Service is friendly and helpful. The major downside of Parada is noise level within the restaurant. Between the open kitchen concrete floors, and metal chairs (screeching across the floors) it was just too loud. We will return because the menu has so many wonderful dishes to explore. But we will have to sit outside, weather permitting.

    I cheated myself for not giving this a try sooner. Absolutely beautiful food with wonderful service. The lamb shank in Cilantro sauce was incredibly tender and falling off the bone. And the chimichurri was the best I’ve ever had. Thank you Parada team. Can’t wait to come back.

    I was pleasantly surprised by Peruvian food. This was my first time dining at Parada and the food was excellent. I had a drink called the Hummingbird and it is now one of my favs. We had the ceviche, empanadas trio and the pollo saltado - all delicious. Would recommend this restaurant if you are craving flavor. We will be back.

    Five of us gathered at Parada to celebrate a 12th wedding anniversary. Our waitress was suburb -- beautifully friendly, quick to deliver on our requests, and knowledgable about the menu for help in choosing food and drink. (Make that drink and food!) We enjoyed the menu's exotic assortment of seafood, the lovely, yummy desserts and delicious drinks. It was nice to eat outside on a cool evening not cool enough to spoil a delightful dinner, excellent service and a friendly atmosphere.

    We had to walk out of this place! It was our 4 year wedding anniversary and we let that be known when we setup the reservation. We were seated quickly, however in 15 minutes of us sitting down, not one server said a word to us, and continued to walk by us multiple times just smiling and talking to each other, not asking us for drinks, appetizers, anything! After 15-17 minutes we decided to get up and leave, when the hostess asked if we had been helped, we said no. We will never be going to this place again, LIMON in Walnut Creek is 100x more friendly, affordable, and better customer service and atmosphere.

    The Sangria and ceviche we very good. Great balance of flavor on both. The fish of the day and the paella were good but needed a bit more seasoning. Parada is definitely a go to restaurant for an elevated dinning experience, but within a casual atmosphere.

    The cebiches was tasty, especially the tuna. We wanted paella, and were surprised not to see it on the menu, even though people provided reviews about paella. The waiter agreed that they didn't have paella, and suggested options. We had the Arroz con Marisco, which had little seafood and was in a sauce. We paid way too much for something that didn't taste very good and wasn't what we were looking for. When I looked at my receipt, one line item said "seafood paella $30".
