We have dined here many times and the food and service continue to be spot on as well as the ambiance. Must tried include the escargot and baguette. The escargot rival those we’ve had in France. This restaurant is a Dunedin gem!

A wonderful surprise hidden in a strip mall. Comfortable and nicely decorated. Food was spectacular. Pork belly not to be missed. Service was excellent. Nice wine selection too. Owner paid us a visit as well.

We were so happy that we found this lovely eatery tucked away from Main Street. The owners, chef and staff could not have been more accommodating and eager to please all of us, and that is exactly what they did! Our wonderful server was Bryan and the food he served us was truly delicious. First off, my cocktail was beautiful, and the house wines were really nice. The Field Salad was simple and very tasty. My Duck Special was extremely well cooked and yummy, and my husband thoroughly savored the Bouillabaisse. It was a great evening and we can't wait to return!!

Just an over outstanding experience. The wine selection has increased and remains a fantastic value. The food is consistently delicious and the presentation beautiful. Service is top notch! I’ve tried three vegan specials and all were superb- even though I’m not a vegan!! This is our go to place! Love love love it!

Dunedin just upped its culinary game. Aside from Black Pearl, I’ve found it hard to find a good meal in Dunedin. Don’t get me wrong it’s a great town for drinking, but just has missed the mark with food. This restaurant is amazing. I see this becoming a frequent stop of mine. The lamb was divine and the bread addicting.

Excellent food, great service. Delicious onion soup, great filet mingnon and duck confit entrees and sides.

Timing of bringing our appetisers & entree was a little off but I attribute that to the newness and a busy Saturday night.

The food and service were outstanding! Onion soup, bone marrow, escargots, rack of lamb, mussels, duck confit ... all awesome selections! I look forward to going back ... soon! Apparently it is becoming the favorite of a lot of our local foodies ... it was packed! Imagine folks in our little burg out for dinner after 9 pm! It is obvious that the Dunedin area was crying out for a great French bistro and we've finally got it with Parlor House Bistro; however, I didn't give five stars across the board due to the ambiance ... the acoustics and ambient noise level at times made it impossible to carry on a normal conversation. I know that the owner is working on the issue so I look forward to a cozy, more classically defined bistro vibe.

First time at this restaurant for us and what a delight. Lovely blending of French and New Orleans foods and traditions. Food was excellent and creative. I have a lot of dietary restrictions that aren't always easy to accommodate at "traditional" restaurants but not problem here. We will definitely go back - and we live in south Pinellas so it has to be pretty tempting to get us to go that far.

We’ve been here a few times and the food has been outstanding! The baguette is a great start but don’t miss the crostini or the escargot - and I’ve never been a fan. Although not a vegan, I’ve tried two vegan entrees and They were fabulous! The wine list is perfect and the bottles we’ve had were delicious! Oh- and the onion soup is a must try! Looking forward to our next visit!

I went there with a group of friends for Valentine's Day and we absolutely enjoyed every moment of our dinner! The food was delicious and portions were generous. Our waitress was attentive and our wine glasses were never empty. Even on a fairly busy night, there wasn't a single hiccup in the quality of service. The whole staff was friendly and easygoing, which made us feel right at home.

Good newly opened French/American Restaurant. Wifes Lamb Chops were a perfect Medium Rare and amongst the best she's had. My Filet and it's sides were barely warm. Our server was good about a reheat . I think the entres sat to long in the kitchen before serving. Overall the meal was good. Parlor House could be a great addition to the Dunedin Dining Scene with a bit more growing up.

Everything was great. Dinner for (3) including tip was over $300. We did enjoy multiple

I really wanted to like this place, since a nice Bistro would be welcome in this area. First the good-outstanding cocktails and a very good wine list. Now the problems. If you are going to call something Vichyssoise have it resemble the original. It should not be served warm and it should not be thick. If you want to serve mushroom soup-call it mushroom soup on the menu.

The trout was okay, just okay. it was prepared nicely and the potatoes were good. The addition of the tomatoes was not a good idea. A delicate sauce is more appropriate and not something that overwhelms the fish.

I think the chef has possibilities but more thought has to go into the dishes. By the way our waiter Brian was terrific and well informed on the drinks and wine list.

I really hope this place makes it but it has a way to go. My companion agreed with this review since we discussed it extensively.
