Parlor Steak & Fish Ratings and Reviews
We gave very specific dietary needs while making the on-line reservation as well as reviewing with waitress. Had to send one entree back as a result . To their credit a manager came over apologized and provided complimentary desserts. Will give them another try .
Great find! Though NOT a kid's restaurant, I took four 9-year-old girls here for a birthday dinner and they all loved it and ordered off the kids' menu. Better yet, I loved it too and was able to enjoy an adult meal in a nice setting. Everyone was happy! Great waiter and also I was running late and called and they very nicely held the table even though I was 1/2 hour late!
Nice ambiance and great menu, but the service was really poor - we waited more than 15 minutes after being seated for a drink order, and had to walk up to the host stand to ask that someone be sent to our table for one. We were assured the manager would take care of it, and waited another 10 minutes before the hostess herself came to take our order. She was perfectly pleasant, but offered no apology for the wait and (not her fault) was clearly unfamiliar with the menu. The service did not improve the whole time we were there. No visits to check on us or see if we wanted additional drinks, we had to ask twice for everything, food was routinely placed before the wrong person. Also, while the food was very tasty, fish entree portions were exceedingly small for the price - really, no bigger than our appetizers. Extremely disappointing, especially given what could be with the ambiance and variety found on the menu.
Its not bad, just not as good as the prices would leave one to expect.
Pros -- great fresh cocktail list, really good Beet Buratta salad. My wife liked her pork tenderloin.
Cons -- the fish entree was very sub-par. I had dorade and my son had the swordfish, but grilled. Both were way overcooked, tough, bland and fishy-tasting. I thought more akin to what you'd get from fish in a diner, not something you pay nearly $40 for. Also, i opted for the glass of Chardonnay that was $15 (instead of the $30 one), and it was metallic tasting and not good.
Desserts were ok and cappuccino was barely luke-warm.
In all, if it had been half the $350 (this without a bottle of wine) I would've been fine with it (but still wouldn't return), but bottom line is this place thinks its a star or two higher than it is.
Room, atmosphere and service pleasant enough. We were not particularly hungry (and that turned out to be a good thing) so we just ordered salad wedges and appetizers. Baked Clams were uninspired and tiny. Sashimi appetizer slices were so thin you could see through them. Would not return based on what we ate.
The waiter was a bit pushy with the drinks, and two of the people in our party did not drink alcohol. The other two kind of felt obligated to do so, but only had 1 drink each. Other than that, I always love coming here, but not too often because it would ruin what makes the place so special.
It's definitely expensive, but the ambiance and food make you forget about the money spent!
You can't be in a rush, either. They will gladly hurry your order and get you in and out, but to really get a good feel and appreciate this place, I would say expect to spend at least 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours. It will be worth it!
The meal was pretty good, but we were treated very poorly. I took my grandparents to dinner. We ordered drinks, appetizers, entrees and dessert. They forgot our drink orders, mixed up the side order with dinner, and once we finished dessert, they cleared the plates and told us they needed to sit the next party. It had been 80 minutes. Completely unacceptable. I did not want to stress my grandparents so i swiftly departed, but for a 3 course meal at a theoretically moderately upscale restaurant, they should not tell you to leave on that timeframe. We have a 645 reservation and were told to leave at 810.
Ordered prime rib, server brought rib eye and when noticed it wasn't prime rib seemed annoyed that we wanted to send back for prime rib. Also our other steak order came medium-well, versus the medium rare order. Our side of broccoli never came. When we paid bill it took server over 20 minutes to run the credit card despite the restaurant being empty. They did bring us dessert on the house, but the damage was done at that point.
ok but not great. Not sure I would recommend. But we didn't encounter some of the issues other reviewers mentioned. The hostess asked us if we wanted to sit inside or outside. We choose inside and we sat by the window. Service was attentive but not overbearing.
We went during Restaurant Week. The selections were good and one thing I liked is that you could choose a glass of house wine instead of dessert. Not many restaurants offer that choice so I liked that. It cuts down on the alcohol bill... but their house wine was unremarkable and at $14 a glass, definitely not a good option for a second glass. That's an outrageous price for house wine. Not many good dining options above 86th St. Will keep looking.
We have tried this twice. They claim to be a steak place but the NY strip was not a quality piece of meat. We ordered two portions medium rare. One was much too well done and too hard to even eat. Its replacement came out rare and was also very tough. Service was pleasant enough but not experienced and when something was needed the waitress never seemed to be around.
I am not tempted to try this again. Too pricey for the quality in this neighborhood.
Booked for restaurant week. Instead of being asked if we wanted inside or outside, we were seated inside (seats were open outside). Didn't worry to much since i like the way the inside looked; dark, sleek, sexy but a little shocked we didn't get to choose.
Our server was very good; knowledgeable about the food items and attentive to our needs. Ordered rose wine and it was absolutely delicious.
Started with the fried calamari which was very good; warm, a good mix of rings and tentacles, and the marinara sauce was good. Warm Bread and olive oil were also provided.
Main course was marinated filet and whipped potatoes. the potatoes were amazing, very good. the meat had, to me, no seasoning and had to use salt at the table. i don't expect to do this at upscale steak places. the sauce they provided with it was bbq-esque and needed to be used on every slice. not a big fan of the steak and would have been disappointed if i paid full price.
for dessert, had the brownie which was warm and had vanilla chocolate ice cream on it which was very good as well.
The biggest concern at this place was after our main course was taken away. bus boy was attentive at cleaning up and providing water but had to wait about 15 minutes for dessert. our waitress was MIA (not angry about that as things happen) but the other waitress came over to cover asking if we wanted dessert and instead of looking at us was looking in the mirror behind us and checking herself out. Then when i said i had a brownie coming with the restaurant week order, it was a "oh i didn't know, i didn't take your order" and then we still had to wait a long time for our normal server to get back. I was disappointed in the back up coverage. Even the couple at the table next to us had to wait a long time for their dessert.
decent ambiance, wine was best part, main course was average, hit or miss with service.
The staff was friendly. We were dining with friends so we were talking a lot and not really paying attention when it came to ordering. The staff was very unobtrusive and didnt rush us. But let us talk. The atmosphere was romantic. We were there foe restaurant week. There were several choices on the menu.
The service was terrible! We waited for nearly an hour just to get our main course after the appetizers. Then when they brought dessert they did not bring any utensils or plates... the bus boy just dumped the desserts in the center of the table! The place was loud and it was hard to have a conversation among our party of 5. The food was not good enough to justify slow service and lousy attitudes. Skip The Parlor and go someplace better!
Service was very slow, and the restaurant was not busy. We had to ask for the price fix menu as one was not brought to us. I happened to know about it because I was looking at the menu beforehand.
I was at Parlor for a party a few weeks ago and the service and food were great. I was disappointed as a diner.
