superb food with first rate service in a beautiful space
Overall good visit, attentive service, good specialty beverages, nice atmosphere, convenient for Duke. Felt the seasoning on several items was too restrained- we wanted to love it, but felt it needed more of a punch. The lamb App was excellent though not too hot; the bacalao fritters were very good; the halloumi cheese was underwhelming- needed more cheese to the order, definitely needed more substance. The special Halibut entree was good, not great. Ordered the special steak and lobster/shrimp Mac & Cheese - Mac & Cheese was very good, piping hot, pasta cooked nicely. Steak was cooked perfectly but the wine reduction was very thin, needed more oomph. Breads were good. Overall, a good dinner but they can season the food more, and with more impactful sauces.
Great place for larger parties. I like the way the restaurant is set up to make you feel like you are there for a special occasion. Our Server, Ivan was wonderful. He had a witty sense of humor and was great with our picky eater 6 year old! We had quite a few entrees and appetizers at our 9 top and I would say that everything was delicious with no complaints!
Our only complaint was that the manager was speaking very loud and was condescending to the employees.
Wonderful place for a special lunch. Food was great , ambiance was very nice, server was superb. Would love to come back for dinner next time
Never fails to meet or exceed expectations.
Parizade's never fails. Quiet pleasant dinner with excellent food.
Fabulous!!! The appetizers were wonderful! Next time I'm springing for dessert.
I will try it again because I used to love it. Hopefully last Saturday night was an anomaly.
A birthday dinner for an older friend, and it was wonderful. Our waitress was excellent - attentive and made very helpful suggestions - and the food was delicious. Two gripes which have nothing to do with the restaurant itself: first, if you don’t already know where the main door is, it can be hard to find (well-screened by shrubbery that also hides the signage). Second, parking can be awful. The Duke Credit Union has a bunch of spaces just around the corner all marked as “30 minutes, towing enforced.” So what about off hours? No signage to help with that, so there were a bunch of empty spaces. Handicapped parking is virtually nonexistent (I counted one space in front of the restaurant). There is parking if you look hard enough, but why should one have to go through all that? The experience once inside the restaurant was superb, however.
We had a lovely evening at Parizade! It is such a lovely place and the food was delicious! It was a near perfect experience! We even saw someone go outside to pick fresh mint for our mojitos! If you are near this area you will be very happy with this choice! It’s a one of a kind place!
Parizade is honestly one of the finest restaurants around. We’ve consistently had outstanding service and food there. We are particularly happy with our server, Christopher, who manages to be both professional and personable. This is a great place to have a great meal.
The service was amazing. We had more show up for a lunch party and they accommodated us well. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly
My fav lunch place with friends! Love the 3 course lunch specials!
This is the second time I have dined at Parizade and I was a bit disappointed. I ordered the same two dishes I had before.... the Keftedes, which were under-cooked and not nicely caramelized and I found the first time. Also, the Branzino, which was much smaller than the first time and filleted unevenly so that the fish was under the vegetables. The service was good, but not GREAT as it was the first visit. I enjoyed the first time so much, I'm willing to try a third and hope for the best!
We had a wonderful time at Parizade. We sat outside in the inner courtyard and it was marvelous. We had live music from a very talented young guitarist which made the atmosphere even more enjoyable. All our dishes were excellent, so was the service.
Paella had no seasoning
We went for lunch and the food is simply excellent. I got the shrimp risotto and I can say that I have never had a risotto that's tasted as creamy and delicious as Parizade's. We also enjoyed the Parizade salad and the bruschetta was particularly good.
The meal was good but service was horrible. The waitress obviously did not want to be there and was miserable. That was the first time I've had bad service there. Hopefully it was a fluke.
Everything was really great.
Food was good waiter staff was very attentive, no complaints at all. Celebration of the CAP inspection. It was well deserved.
Very helpful and thoughtful wait person. Table was in a convenient location and the service was timely and good was presented in desirable appearance.
We were there celebrating my daughters birthday and they made it great!
Our waiter was attentive and made recommendations based on our questions and preferences. The food and wine were delicious.
Always a fabulous experience. We’ve dined here for 20 or more years and we continue to love it. DURHAM has many great restaurants, but we come back again and again. You will not be disappointed.
Enjoyed a lovely evening -- attentive service. Will order something different next time - to try other items. Beautiful dining ambiance --
Great restaurant with wonderful service.
Thanks Igor for making it a great dining experience!
Wonderful ambience. Fantastic food. Great service. Perfect place for lunch.
Absolutely fabulous from the friendly yet professional staff to the Branzino! Delicious!!!
Our usual wonderful time at Parizade. Always enjoy the evening. Only disappointment was no Bronzini.
Cioppino was outstanding however. Parizade is a Durham treasure.
This is our favorite restaurant and it never disappoints.
All in all this is one of my favorite restaurants. From te time you enter til the time you leave the service is exceptional. i was impressed with the knowledge of our wait person with the mei.
Good food, good service, good ambiance. Noise level started out good, but increased as the night wore on. Not good for conversing with friends. For our anniversary and a friend's birthday, our shared (excellent) dessert came with a sparkler! Would recommend this restaurant for any special occasion.
Food was overpriced and not cooked to specifications. Service was incredibly slow.
What a wonderful evening! Christopher was an excellent server. Knew EVERYTHING about the menu and was delightful. Food was yummy. The Organic pilaf was delish as was the gnocchi and chicken. Will definitely return!
Good food and service. A very nice dinner.
Always a fabulous meal and service!! Tried the fish special and it was amazing.
It’s always a pleasure to enjoy a meal here. The combine great quality food of good potion with creativity and unique presentation. Solid choice.
Always enjoy Parizade! Good food, beautiful surroundings!
Twenty two years ago we had pur wedding reception at what was then called "Cafe Parizade" The food is still outstanding and Egor was very kind to us ( he recognized our anniversary.) Will not wait 22 years to return!
We enjoyed a lovely lunch on the terrace.
