Parallax Restaurant & Lounge Ratings and Reviews
We went there for Cleveland Independents Restaurant Week, the meal options were awesome and portions large enough for leftovers. The service is friendly and professional. Overall this is one of my favorite restaurants and restaurant week is a good opportunity for Parallax to showcase its Asian inspired cuisine.
Though the food was innovative the flavors did not go over well. I ordered the restaurant week special of pork with pork belly- big mistake. The entree was greasy and way too fatty. The service however was excellent. The waitress was knowledgeable, humorous, professional and friendly. Though I'd give it another shot I would recommend they limit their selection and focus on 6-10 items at most for protein categories.
Fantastic food and service. Every dish on the table was uniquely composed and well executed. I had the swordfish belly, and it was amazing. Service was excellent but unobtrusive. This is my favorite of Mr. Bruells restaurants, and has maintained its high level We will back sooon!
Parallax is always a welcome destination. The food is always first rate and the atmosphere is elegant yet inviting.
It is nice to know that when you order something you have enjoyed previously, it will be as good or better. Many choices are on the menu so there is no reason to not have a wonderful dining experience.
The bar tender and wait staff are all interested in your having a good experience. The food is well prepared and delicious. The ambiance is calm and stylish. Even Zac,the proprietor, drops in to expedite the finished dishes and monitor the preparation. A place to repeatedly come back to.
One of the best restaurants I've been to. Service was excellent, food superior. Small restaurant with all of atmosphere. The trout was best I've had; other places smother it with butter, and the trout flavor gets lost, but here it was just enough sauce to dress it, and still let the delicate flavor of the trout come through. Four of us ladies came here for a birthday, and we highly recommend Parallax for any occasion. and we loved our server!
Would give everything 10 stars if possible. This place knows how to do business, food, drinks and dessert. Best service I've had a restaurant in a looong time, our waitress was awesome and super friendly. Really cool to see Z in the kitchen helping expo food. I love when an owner is heavily involved in their business and has a presence. Planning on coming back asap.
Parallax was such a wonderful dining experience for my husband and I on our anniversary. The service was exceptional and the food was unique, flavorful, and refined. The whole evening from start to finish was perfect. The wine list was impressive and the 1/2 off Wednesday deal can't be beat. All the staff was friendly and personable. We really felt taken care of. We will absolutely be back again soon and will certainly be recommending this restaurant to all. Thanks again everyone that was working. We had a great celebration.
We had a wonderful dining experience. Our server, Tyler, was very knowledgeable and engaging. The fried goat cheese salad was amazing. Tyler recommended (sold) the special chicken dish, and he was right! It was really good! We look forward to returning sometime soon.
The Pork Shank Pad Thai was fantastic. The pork was melt in your mouth tender. We had the vegetable sweet and sour soup, as well as the endive with fried goat cheese salad. Both of them were unbelievable. My wife had the Blackened Walleye, which she could not stop raving about. The marrying of flavors in all of the dishes we had, were really great and the best we have had.
Parallax is a great 'fine restaurant'. They get it right- from the decor to the items on the menu. However, there were glitches in the service. The bus boy didn't know how much wine to pour in each glass, and the bottle was empty with 2 people still waiting to be served. It is understandable but really inexcusable for a restaurant that charges as much as Parallax does for food.
The food was great, from the pomme fritte to the salads to Asian (Thai/Japanese) food. Sushi was delicious too but the vegetarian sushi was disappointing. Pacific East serves far better vegetarian sushi for cheaper.
All in all, Parallax is an outstanding restaurant with great food and wine.
We've been wanting to go to Parallax for their half price sushi night for a while now. The sushi was good, but I was happy we were only paying half price. It would have been a really expensive meal otherwise. The service was not great. The server took away my husband's beer before he was done drinking it and didn't ask if he could do so. It was ok, but there are many other cheaper options that are just as good or better so I do not think we'll be going back.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Cleveland! Chef/Owner Zack Bruell and his team always have a fresh menu and great service! I rated the noise level higher because of a rude gaggle of girls seated next to us. They were loud and not characteristic of Chef Bruell's clientele. Make your reservation today!
A true and reliable neighborhood gem. This place always comes thru for me. Celebrated my daughter's birthday here earlier this summer and then had my Mom and my nephew there for another special occasion. The servers are always prompt , attentive and enjoyably friendly and the food is truly amazing.
Service and food were excellent. We were there at an off time, so there was very little competition for the server's attention. Our server, Nano, was friendly, upbeat, and attentive. I was catching up with an out of town guest and it was quiet for conversation.
