Organic Green Chickpea Hummus was outstanding! Light and nutritious. Soup Special of seasonal vegetables made a prefect first course. Not too filling. Service was very accomodating to allow sharing of the fresh roasted whole Branzino. Excellent! Not busy on a Monday evening as expected. Adequate servers available to keep things moving at the right pace. Great energy, attractive bar scene and a diverse crowd. Sound level did not intefere with conversations. We'll be back!

I have been here twice with my husband, and both times have been such a wonderful experience. The food and wine is amazing, and I could rate higher than 5 stars I would. I have the gnocchi and my God, it was delicious. The white chocolate cheesecake is also outstanding. Will be back for sure.

Another wonderful lunch with a friend at my favorite Durham restaurant. This time, I broke away from "my usual" to try the Shrimp & Artichoke Risotto—YUM! I'll be back, for sure! Thanks, Parizade!

Always enjoy Parizade, but this past Saturday night's dinner was one of the best in terms of food and service. Cooper was delightful and offered suggestions to help us narrow down some menu choices. Can't wait to return!

Service was excellent. Food served in a proper and timely manner with care.

For my taste some of the food was overly seasoned and as a salt lover it was even too salty for me. Next time I’ll keep this in mind when ordering.

Our overall experience was lovely, the decor is beautiful and comfortable and we will come back again.

I was visiting NC with my family. This Greek restaurant was delicious and perfect for my mom, sister, and I. We sat outside. It was quaint and the weather was beautiful. I especially loved the burrata, my sister loved her lamb kefetedes/meatballs, and my mom loved the pork chop. Would definitely visit all the time if I lived in Durham, NC.

This is our favorite nice restaurant in Durham. I usually get steak (ribeye) but everything there has been excellent so far. I recommend to everyone I talk food with! - Brad

I would recommend against the gnocchis. Perhaps owners should check out Melinas for a higher quality locally made pasta.

Our server was very personable and didn’t rush us into picking what we would order. He explained the specials, and was patient with us old fogeys. And he brought enough wine and drinks, which was greatly appreciated. The octopus was as good as it was at grandmas. Beautiful decor, comfortable chairs, lovely personnel. Only criticism I have was that the wine pour was a bit on the small side.....desserts were fantastic. We will be back!

My Australian lamp chops were very good but my wife’s red snapper-the “special” fish of the night - was very bland. Creme brûlée was good. Presentation was good, very attentive service and nice atmosphere.

Inconspicuously situation within what appeared to be a medical center/strip mall, Parizade delighted the senses with well-prepared dishes ranging from delicate to robust. A range of classic Mediterranean dishes included cold and baked cheeses, gnocchi, lamb chops, baked and grilled fish, octopus, steak and a range of delectable deserts. The Maitre was attentive and resolved a few service hiccup for our large (8) table; our main waiter broke a dish over my main course, disappeared for much of the meal and did not know much about the wine options, but when support was sent service improved. The decor is "eccentric" to say the least, but from the semi-private back seating "room" (by means of a curtain) it made a great location for a business meal. Price is high for the area, but quality matches it to bring a solid value. 4/5 for food quality, 3.5/5 for service, 4/5 for ambiance. A solid choice, as long as your guests don't mind an Uber or drive from central Durham.

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!

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!

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.
