Our usual wonderful time at Parizade. Always enjoy the evening. Only disappointment was no Bronzini.
Cioppino was outstanding however. Parizade is a Durham treasure.

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.

Parizade has been one of my favorite spots for years. My absolute go to when I have business dinners in Durham. Has always been fantastic, both in regards to the food, as well as service. I took my largest customer there for dinner this past Wednesday night, and was very disappointed. The food was mediocre, and the service was terrible. Our waitress was clueless. Took forever to get our food. When we did, the order was incomplete. 2 of my party ordered the pan seared Halibut. One had a side of asparagus, the other broccolini. She brought the sides after they had finished their fish. 1 member of the party just ordered a caesar salad with shrimp. The salad showed up about 5 minutes after every other entree, with no shrimp. Meal was finished, waited forever to get desert menus. Ordered 2 for the table. Finished those, and then waited forever to get the check. It was painful.

Maybe it was just a bad night. I certainly hope so, because as I said at the beginning, I have always loved Parizade. Hope they get it back together soon!

I had a wonderful birthday dinner one of many over the last 20 years!!! My wife had the pork chop and I had a seafood pasta meal to die for. They were both incredible. The service is always excellent. We started with a lamb appetizer! Superb! I enjoyed a wonderful banana foster kind of dessert that was wonderful. Highly recommend Parizade’s...

Outstanding dinner! I had the best pork chop ever! My husband had the special of spaghetti and meatballs! He really enjoyed his dinner, too! Our waitress April was very attentive and took good care of us. She was very personable! We have gone there many times and have always had a terrific meal! Can’t wait to go back again! Parizade changes their menu regularly which we like!

Managers are so attentive and thoughtful and all employees are engaging. The atmosphere is wonderful and full of color. Unfortunately the food was a bit disappointing. The shrimp in my dish was a bit overcooked and tough. And the red snapper was full of bones even after the table side show of removing them. I would recommend not to do this table side, it is not that nice to watch, then presentation was sloppy.

We had a large family celebration for my daughter’s high school graduation. Every thing was set so beautifully, even celebration confetti on the table. Everyone loved their entrees! The food is delicious, the presentation is lovely and the staff are all incredible. Constantly making sure everyone was taken care of even though we were a large group. I LOVE this place!

The waitress we had was patient, clarified our questions while ordering. She explained details about the specials and made suggestions to help us decide. We celebrated my son's 21st birthday... couldn't have asked for a better night to have dinner for him. Thank you for the training you've put forth in making sure your staff is kind and mannerable. We will definitely come again.

We attended for restaurant week. My husband and son ordered the lamb kebabs and they were chewy and served with a cold grain salad. We spent 150 with tip and not at all satisfied with the quality of food for the price. I will say I was the only one who enjoyed my meal. I ordered the salmon which I have had before and always delicious here.
