It was quite cold inside, and noisy enough that it made having an across the table conversation somewhat challenging. The tuna was good and so was the duck.

My two girlfriends and I had a wonderful time at lunch on a Saturday, celebrating a birthday. The music was kind of loud, but it didn't get in the way of our conversation. The service was impeccable. The birthday girl has multiple food allergies, and the server and chef were very attentive/careful when discussing food options that were safe. The mushrooms on toast was absolutely delicious (and included a healthy amount of mushrooms!) and I also ordered a salad, that was perfectly dressed. The service was so great and they made my friend feel very special on her birthday.

You HAVE to try the brisket! And the fries are the best around. All done with amazing service. I'd love to see lightly fried pickles on the menu :)

This was a great experience and we absolutely would come back. It feels like Parlour is on the cusp of something outstanding. The cocktail was delicious and our food was really good. The service was very pleasant and eager to hear what we thought of our order. Very cool vibe inside and very cozy on the patio.

The drink selections were very creative and delicious. The chicken burger was very good, but I think a small side of fries should be included and not a $6 extra.

Wonderful reception - sitting outside under a full moon, comfortable seating and really attentive service (Chantal). Because one of the diners asked for a special dish and we asked for all dishes to be served together, we had a bit of a wait, but the wine flowed and the conversation was great. I was pleasantly surprised at the bill - coming in at under 50 per guest including a premium wine service. It was a wonderful evening - what more can I say - it is a wonderful restaurant staffed be terrific people serving fun and well-prepared meals with a wonderful wine list. Of course we will be back!

The food was good. Simple and tasty. The service was good. Our server was personable. The wines were quite good. The decor was nice, but the indoor space felt cold and empty. The lighting was off (maybe too bright?). I think with a few more additions and tweaks, the ambience could be greatly improved. Would def try it again.

Thank you very much for your review and feedback, and thank you for being here. We've just finally opened up inside and are super excited to keep adding the MCM pieces we curate and other components (I do find our entrance hanging fixture a bit bright and we are working on the right bulbs for this!, I'm with you)

My burger and fries were not served really hot.
An adjacent table was quite noisy.
As often happens as a single woman I was seated at a less desirable table (next to the street.
Service was a bit slow.

Can't say enough about how amazing our birthday date night here was. The waitress we had was so friendly, so attentive, and so kind, they made us feel right at home and never rushed. I also wanted to ensure that my partner wasn't able to pay as it was his birthday, and the hostess who greeted us, called me ahead of time to confirm my reservation, and the waitress we had all worked with my super discreetly to ensure that my boyfriend had no idea I'd be handling the bill. We had such a lovely night, and can't wait to see what their indoors seating will look like when it opens! The brisket fries, corn chowder, and the fried chicken sandwich were all outstanding. We immediately texted our friends while there recommending this spot!

Loved the outdoor DJ - great vibe. My meal was very tasty, and the staff were very pleasant and attentive. Some in our group found their meals a bit disappointing - perhaps meals coming out too quickly from the kitchen without all the seasoning. One meal was forgotten altogether and came to the table very late - which they generously took off the bill without us even asking. Parlour probably does very well with a smaller number of patrons per night. With the recent increased publicity, they were very busy and it seemed like they were not able to keep up and the quality of the food and drinks suffered.

I am willing to give Parlour another chance some other time but this was my first time there and the service was terrible unfortunately I do not recall the name of our waiter. We ask for food recommendations and questions about the menu and no luck sadly on getting accurate answers, our cocktails appeared at the same time as our main(of which we had ordered separately). Food was ok, and it was not a busy night

Best friend chicken sandwich I've ever had! Chicken was moist and it definitely lives up to the hype. Our server was amazing, super attentive and sweet. He noticed that a small fly had gone into my cocktail right as he was going to serve it to me and took it back right away to get me a new one. Cute little spot that didn't make me feel out of place in my t-shirt and jeans!
