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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
