The food was superb. We chose the restaurant because the menu had entrees that appealed to both the meat eaters and the vegetarians in our party. Everyone was happy with their food, desserts, and the wine. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. The decor is a lot of sculpture on walls and ceiling - interesting and not overwhelming. But it is all hard surfaces, and if the restaurant had been full, chances are the ambient noise level would have been quite loud. With the restaurant about half full, a table of 4 had no trouble conversing. The after dinner drinks menu had a large number of selections. The Tokaji was outstanding.
We are thrilled to hear that everyone in your party was happy with their dining experience at Parizade! We look forward to hosting you again soon.
Great food and great service. Even let the manager know after our meal how wonderful the service was.
Thank you for the kind words! We pride ourselves on our service and dishes. We hope you visit again soon!
Excellent server named Chris!
We're thrilled you enjoyed the service!
I believe our waiter was Cooper. Cooper had a doppleganger working a few tables over. I digress! Cooper was an excellent waiter! We started the meal with a bottle of Tempernillo (a Crianza). We moved on to ordering the Smoked Trout appetizer. (If you like Bagels and Lox - this is better!) I had a bowl of the Manhattan Style Clam Chowder and Cooper brought extra spoons for Mom and my wife. Mom had the Rack of Lamb. My wife had the Boulubase and I had the Red Snapper Special. Cooper's almost twin filleted the fish. We finished the meal with coffee and two layered banana dessert with Carmel and Rasberry and whipped cream. Surprisingly, it was light, flufy, tasty and shared by all!
We are thrilled you and your family enjoyed dinner together, and the service from Cooper. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
Great place to celebrate special days! The staff are attentive and food excellent. ++++
Thank you for the kind words!
I was excited to try Parizade for a friend's birthday, but am disappointed in my experience. The hostess did not greet us or ask to help us, only stood there like a robot staring at us until we asked for our reservation. Our server was equally as robotic and stale, must be new? The food needed salt terribly and didnt have the flavor described on the menu. The server asked if we would like boxes while we were still eating, lol! This place is beautiful and leads one to believe the service and food would match. Honestly, I wont waste my time or money here again. Hopefully they can improve.
A consistently great restaurant. A lovely warm ambience, not too noisy, and delicious food. Great for private parties too.
Thank you for the review, Joanne! We pride ourselves on offering exceptional food and service. We look forward to hosting you again, whether for a dinner or event!

Wonderful evening at Parizade to celebrate MIL b-day. Service was EXCELLENT-Danni is the best!
Thank you for the review, Jules! We're glad you selected Parizade for the celebration. We look forward to your next visit!
Our servers and food were great. We went on a Thursday. It was a retirement party of 10.
Thank you for the review! We're thrilled you chose Parizade for the retirement party, and enjoyed yourself. We look forward to hosting you again!
Parizade has an elegant but relaxed atmosphere, a wide range of excellent food options, and a price structure consistent with other upscale restaurants in the area. Service is very good but unobtrusive, the best possible combination. Dinner is pricey, but lunch is a relative bargain.
Thank you for the kind words, Jim. We look forward to serving you again!
Great service, menu selections, timing
Thank you for the review!
Always a great experience at Parizade. Fresh menus , fresh food, fresh atmosphere.
We're thrilled you enjoyed yourself! Come back again soon.
No idea how this place has such good reviews. The food was not good and service wasn't much better. After two appetizers we cancelled our entrees. With a nice bottle of wine we still spent over $200.
We liked the mushroom soup and the bacalau balls, but in general not all that much to write home about. I had the red snapper special with brocolini and my hubby had the octopus. The octopus would've been better not in a broth b/c it made is mushy which defeats the purpose of grilling it.
Our server, Cooper, was top notch!
Friendly staff and great food. Highly recommend if you are in Durham.
Thank you for the review, Nelson!
Coolest decor around. Food is consistently good as is the selection. Waiter on this night had way too many tables and, while very knowledgeable, was not nearly attentive enough - and not just to us.
We had a wonderful meal in this beautiful restaurant. The service was excellent. Attentive yet not overly so. Our meal was delicious, yet the wedge salad was disappointing. It should be ice cold and unfortunately was actually warm, not good. But the rest was delicious. Kind of place you want to stay awhile. We will be back!
I have always gotten a good meal at Parizade. It is my go-to restaurant for a number of years.
We're thrilled to know that we always meet your expectations. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
Best dinning in Durham as far as I am concerned. Been dinning there 25years
We're thrilled to hear this! We look forward to hosting you again soon.
The food is consistently good. However we waited over an hour for our food and no one came to our table to check on us. When we flagged someone down, we were told the delay in getting our food was due to the fact that they had a large party that they were busy taking care of. It seems the restaurant should have made accommodations for us as we also had reservations. No apology or any type of compensation was provided. Not good customer relations.
Dear Jeanie, Thank you for taking the time to write out your review. On behalf of Parizade's Management team we apologize sincerely for the delay in service. There is no excuse as to why your party should've had to go out of your way to find service. We do hope that you'll join us again soon and allow us to show you the exemplary service that is expected here at Parizade.
Efficient operation (fast & courteous), quality food, upscale but casual (not stuffy) ambiance.
Food was excellent. Friday night thought it was crowded and noise level was too high to hear friends sitting across the table.
We go here regularly, because it is predictably superb, the staff is excellent and the prices reasonable. There are always interesting specials.
We have been celebrating the birthday's of our 7 girlfriends here for 15 years or more. today was another delightful lunch together.
The steak wasn’t tender and not cooked to specification. Chef recooked it’s but the steak was rubbery. My stuffed checked was delicious, however!
I ordered the Prixe Fixe lunch -- my ravioli was good, my banana napoleon was excellent, my Caesar salad was awful -- baby leaves of Romaine lettuce coated in dressing. No croutons, no parmesan crisps, just lettuce. Surely, Parizade can do better!
Thank you Casey for taking the time to review your experience with us. Though we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your second and third course, it is very disappointing that your salad was lackluster. I will consult with our lunch chef to try and find out what may have happened. Please join us again soon and let us live up to the Parizade standard. -Sincerely, Parizade Management
Birthday dinner. Outstanding evening. Service, food, ambiance everything. Highly recommend to anyone.
We're delighted to hear you enjoyed your evening! We look forward to hosting you again.
Phenomenal wait staff, well-time courses, outstanding wine recommendation, delicious eats, and very accommodating atmosphere. Would recommend to everyone.
Wonderful dinner. Excellent food and service. A little expensive but a perfect place for a special celebration
Thank you for the review!
This was my first time eating at this restaurant. I found the ambiance and the service to be superior. I had the stuffed chicken which was good but not exceptional. My overall impression is this is a very nice restaurant and one that I would reserve for fine dining experience. One drawback, my waiter brought me the wrong change from my bill and the difference was quite substantial. I will use a credit care next time.
Thank you for the feedback! We're delighted to hear you enjoyed your first visit to Parizade. We apologize for the mix up with your bill, and will work to avoid such issues in the future. We look forward to hosting you again!
Food and service are always great. Shout out to Christopher for being a great server too!

Food and service was second to none. Simply fabulous.
Thank you for the excellent review!
Food is always great and Chris is the best waiter ever!
A colleague highly recommended this restaurant for our business team dinner. The team visited the restaurant this evening and was pleasantly surprised by its location, the decor, and overall ambience.
Our server was well trained, knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and patient. He was attentive to our needs and monitored the progression of our meals in order to ensure that he brought our food out at the right pace. Our drinks were replenished in a timely manner.
We were impressed by the quality and taste of the entrees and desserts. Everything was displayed well, seasoned adequately, moist, and cooked just right. We had a wonderful experience and would visit again.
Parizade is always a good choice! The decor is pleasing, service excellent, menu varied, and the food is delicious! It’s a clear winner.
We're so glad to hear us! We look forward to your next visit.
Lovely atmosphere, food was superb.
We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your time at Parizade! We look forward to serving you again.
