Five of us went for daughters birthday. All staff wore a mask and they took our temp when we came in-the right thing to do. Servers were very professional and attentive. And the sushi was excellent like it always is!

We dined on Monday evening and were welcomed by the staff and half price shushi. The sushi was fresh and excellent. My wife had the walleye perch dinner, and it too was excellent. We will return to Parallax for sure when we next visit Cleveland.

First evening dining out since February. We felt very comfortable with the health and safety precautions Parallax has instituted. Our dinner...particularly the sashimi platter...was superb! Thank you Parallax for taking care of your clients and continuing to provide excellent quality food and service.

The manager was gracious and efficient! Our server, Janelle, phenomenal! Janelle knows the menu, always goes above and beyond to serve, and never intrudes. Such a perfect server! Julian was kind enough to run to Alley Cat to pick up some wines to bring home. BTW try the onion rings! Paired with a bottle of ‘a Rina 2017 perfect match!

Paralax always has great food! Sushi is outstanding. The chefs work hard and bring forth delicious food! One of our favorite places. Hope they can bring back wine pairing dinners.

Always superb food and service. Casual atmosphere. SO MANY CHOICES on the menu--meats, fish, vegetarian, and sushi---always something for everyone.
Awesome wine list, but you are also permitted to bring your own bottle of wine.
A great place for all!

First post-COVID visit to the dining room. Parallax's provisions seem sensible - no paper menus, all staff masked, tables distanced, ample sanitizer. Felt very comfortable. Only downside to the experience was that we were seated next to the kitchen - more bustle and noise than ideal.

Staffing and attention we received were lavish (perhaps a plus of distancing), food delicious, novel and with beautiful presentation. Thai sausage extremely tasty and unique. Parallax reminded me of everything I had been missing under the shutdown - thanks!

Had such a lovely experience here Wednesday night ( half off bottles of wines under 99!!) at my favorite restaurant. Service is always outstanding, and Julian time and time again delivers on the most outstanding wine knowledge. The seared pork belly appetizer is always a must as well the array of sushi options. I can’t wait to come back next week!!

Honestly really enjoyed the entire experience. We celebrated a birthday that evening and our server made special efforts to help make the experience even more fun. I have 3 comments, not complaints!! It’s a bit pricey, but I know it’s in a very trendy neighborhood. I just wish trendy places didn’t feel the need to keep up with the trendy prices. This is the only reason I do not look at my experience as a good value.

The menu is a chaotic mess of lose papers, not pleasing to go through

Finally, all the food was extremely fresh and flavorful. Flavorful almost to a fault. For example, the Mahi had too many competing as well as complimenting qualities. Sometimes less is more. (just an opinion).

No worries, we’ll be back. Especially for 1/2 off sushi night

Parallax is one of my favorite restaurants and it continues to be! We came in for restaurant week and it also happened to be 1/2 off on certain wine bottles, so we couldn’t be happier. The service was amazing, they were kind and attentive. Food was outstanding to say the least. Can’t wait to go back, I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great date night.

We ladies were celebrating a birthday. Everyone commented on the professional staff, how nice and patient they were with us all asking a million questions. The food was great, from salads, sushi , seafood stew to duck confit. We had a hard time deciding because there were so many great menu choices. I had a really yummy Old Fashioned before lunch. We will be back and will tell our friends

The food was fabulous. Our particular waitress was not the best however the ancillary staff members were wonderful. The seating was very crammed.. we couldn’t have a conversation without the people next to us hearing and to add to the small table we did not have a place to put our puffy winter jackets- that made things uncomfortable.

Have been going to this place for a decade and I have to say this was the first time I was really disappointed. My “go to” favorite dish was completely changed from the usual preparation and was now overpoweringly spicy, not to mention my fish was very fleshy almost raw. It took 25 mins to get a bar beverage, and the bathroom was an absolute mess.

One of our go to restaurants where you are never disappointed. Had the Duck confit with risotto and green beans and although fairly heavy, is full of flavor. Calamari apprentices was lightly coated and a large portion of tender bites. Others had the udon noodle bowl which is always delicious. Didn’t have any sushi, but it too is always a yummy starter and delivers a great mix of dining choices.

We dined on a Thursday night, so it wasn't very crowded and it's hard to evaluate the noise level on a typical night. Everything was great, from the service to the appetizer to entrée to dessert. I have never had a bad or mediocre meal at this restaurant. Only negative is that most tables are located close to their neighbors, so that when it is crowded, a private conversation may easily be heard by strangers.
