A wonderful place to enjoy my birthday dinner. All four of us were completely satisfied and we were never rushed through our celebration.

1st, our server was very diligent and helpful without being overbearing. The food was Very good kumbha and since it was a Wednesday night the restaurant was not very loud.The tables are very close to each other so when the restaurant is very busy the noise level increases substantially. The food was delicious and we enjoyed ourselves very much.

We went for my mom's 88th birthday. We enjoyed the whole fish and the festive sparkler on our desert. The orange-almond dessert is my favorite, but the chocolate torte came close. Wonderful evening. Thank you!

This was good food...better than most restaurants, but not superlative. We were there on a Monday night and it was dead. The hummus was good. Fish was fresh and nicely cooked but lacked flavor. Greek salad weird...no greens, mostly onion.

Anniversary dinner with my husband. Everything was wonderful except for our waiter who spoke heavily accented English - this was not an issue but he had problems understanding us and had to ask for everything to be repeated. The service and food was otherwise exceptional.

Our group of nine had a wonderful dinner at Parizade. The food was delicious - we enjoyed appetizers and entrees. One person did not like his Mojito - that was the only negative comment from the entire evening. The service was excellent. Our server was personable and helpful. We had a few young children in our group and he went out of his way to make sure they were well taken care of.

What a spectacular dining experience! The decor is Vegas-level stunning, the service was A+ and we could have ordered everything on the very delicious menu! We did enjoy a few Mezze plates and had the bronzino as well as a red snapper dish prepared with Mediterranean seasoning and expertly filleted tableside.

Can’t wait to go back!

Parizade has always been our favorite restaurant in the Raleigh-Durham area, and it did not disappoint this time. The combination of an extensive menu with numerous offerings for vegetarians, excellent food, outstanding service and a beautiful venue makes it a “no brainer” for us.

Very tasty food. Gave less than 5 stars for service as we asked not to sit next to the door as it was cold and we were placed directly by the door and service was not very prompt.

I had the shrimp with risotto. It was priced at $16 did not have quality shrimp. The risotto was water too.. There are just to many other locations in durham for a business lunch. (The server and staff were pleasant)

Our service was good and the ambiance was nice. Unfortunately, the food lacked flavor. We could tell that it was well cooked (good cooking technique) but we just kept waiting for the next dish to wow us, and it never came. For a $30 plate, it really wasn’t worth it.

We've been to Parizade a few times in past years and always enjoyed the Mediterranean menu and cool interior vibe. This weekend, it looked like they had added extra rows of tables (maybe to capitalize on Valentine's Day weekend?) but being placed at a small table, directly in the main aisle and seated closer to the people next to us than to each other completely ruined the evening. People kept bumping in to us (at one point our tablecloth was nearly pulled off as someone walked by, and at another, my wine glass was nearly knocked out of my hand by a server trying to squeeze between tables to refill water glasses.) It was very uncomfortable and made it truly hard to relax-- I could scarcely pick up my fork without worrying I was about to bump into someone. Food was okay but not memorable-- caesar salad with actual anchovies, a nicely grilled salmon, and a reasonable but kind of greasy lemon veggie pasta. I think this overcrowding also contributed to very slow service. Our waiter was wonderful and kept us updated and kept the breadbasket full, but there was about a 20 minute wait just to get our 1st course. The restaurant may take in extra money by adding in all those extra tables, but they have pretty much lost a customer. I might try again on something that's not a Saturday night.

The waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and drinks. The special was a porterhouse steak cooked perfectly. Definitely try one of there many spreads for an appetizer and the banana desert was amazing. Cocktails were well mixed. Was a perfect birthday dinner for my wife.

Since there were just two of us they didn’t have us at a comfortable table but were happy to move us. The menu has a good selection for two very different diners: a vegetarian and a carnivore. Quickly determined if the soup of the day was vegetarian (it was) and it was served hot! The rest of the meal was fine, served in a timely fashion. This is a big restaurant, quite noisy, so intimate conversation isn’t possible. Still, a good place, I’ll go again.
