Parizade Ratings and Reviews

We were referred by a friend , so we went for my wife's birthday. We liked the place, but were not impressed at all with the food. Shrimp appetizer was not tasty. Something as basic as a Ceasar salad was not even enjoyable. I was not concerned with the price, though it was somewhat high, but the quality should have been higher even at a lower price. I haven't told the friend that referred me, so I'm hoping he doesn't ask.

We were in Durham for a concert on our anniversary. We chose Parizade after reviewing the menus from several area establishments. Parizade easily exceeded our expectations. We had the grouper with shellfish in a bouillabaisse broth - excellent! We complemented it with the sautéed squash - perfect. For desert we had the Tunisian Orange Cake - wonderful. We will definitely be back.

Parizade has been a favorite for years! The food is consistently excellent, the service attentive, and the atmosphere surprisingly intimate for a large restaurant. It bothers me that I have to ask for the price of the food as the waiter recites the specials of the day...surely there is a way to graciously include the cost. It's "upscale" but, most diner's don't have limitless money to spend.

Have not visited this facility for about 3 years. Generally about the same except for the personnel changes. Food considered very good and service acceptable . Atmosphere a bit noisy .
Value ?--overpriced . Our guests loved the swordfish and scallops. Still a solid ,enjoyable, classy place to go in Durham-- after all these years.
( The downside of this one visit was spilled ice water on chairs and floor , $33 special whole flounder overpriced, too much garlic , and new personnel did not know anything about " OpenTable".)

was there Friay August 5th for dinner. The waitress was exceptional. we were dining w/friends we hadn't seen in quite awhile. waitress NEVER interrupted the conversation to "ask" if everything was ok..but was obviously aware of our every move; frequently circulating by the table, extremely attentive to refill water, remove used plates, utensils etc., and would 'ask' our needs at just the appropriate times--without interrupting conversation. I can't tell you how impressed we were with her service. this was not our first time here..and we will definitely be back.

Some of the food was delicious, specially the rack of lamb and the gnocchi with lamb and peas appetizer. Other food, not so much. The salad had strawberries and sliced almonds, when some chopped walnuts or pecans would have made all the difference. The waiter also had a pepper mill that was not grinding properly and so he loaded my salad with whole peppercorns. The mashed potatoes that came with the lamb rack really didn't need the feta in it.
As for the wait staff, it was a Monday so maybe it was the B team, but they all seamed very somber, like they didn't want to be there. That said the y were polite and somewhat professional. I appreciated the fact that we were not rushed. The biggest challenge, is the price to wow factor; it is not that the food is bad but the BlueApron Catfish we cooked ourselves the next day was better.

I enjoy going to Parizade because the friendly ambiance, consistently good food, and good service. It is also one of the few places in NC that provide a table cover. I also like being able to see the kitchen where the food is being cooked.

My friend and I were given a table right away. The server brought bread and olive oil but we had no plates and forks or salt and pepper to put it on. The empty table right next to us had all of that. Why didn't the server put us at a table that was totally equipped? It was like we did not rate. Once the meal got going, the server was very good and very helpful!

So disappointing. Used to be a great place. Waiter was good but food was barely ok. The veal special turned out to be a giant piece of undercooked, tough, super fatty meat. Sent it back and ordered something else. All food really bland. Risotto not fully cooked. Manager never came by to apologize for the veal disaster. Couldn't even risk ordering dessert. Left and went elsewhere for that. Definitely will not go back or recommend to anyone.

It was my first time going to Parizade's at it was amazing. The service was impeccable and the Manager even came to our table and informed us of what we had and comp'ed our desserts. My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and this was quite a wonderful way to do so. We shall return.

James the bartender came over to our table on multiple occasions to make sure we had a fabulous dining experience. He went over all of the specials and details about the dishes we were thinking about getting. he was very knowledgeable and personable. The food was awesome and the ambiance was just what we were looking for.

This is my third meal at Parizade. First was a lunch with OLLIE at Duke (a continuing education group). Second was dinner with my wife. Third was dinner with our son and his family, including a 2 year old. My first meal was a group meal: chicken entree with salad. Remarkably good food and service for a group; I was impressed. The second time I had a Seafood Risotto Provencal that was spectacular; probably the best risotto I've ever had. My wife had the Cheese Tortellini which she said was also outstanding. We sat at one of the wonderful tables outside; during the right weather this is a wonderful choice. Our waiter was awesome. The third time was a bit of a disappointment. They were not crowded, but service was slow (making it difficult to keep the 2 year old still). I had the catch of the day, and it was a bit overcooked and had cooled off by the time it reached the table. My wife had the Seafood Risotto Provencal, and it was as good as it was during our prior visit. For desert I had the Tunisian Orange Cake that was very, very good. My wife and son had the Black Velvel Praline Torte--they are both chocolate enthusiasts, and declared it to be WONDERFUL!!! Prices are not inexpensive. We will return, but a full dinner with drinks is a bit much for us to go often.

Parizade is our all time favorite restaurant. We go here for lunches and dinner. The service is impeccable, food outstanding and beautifully presented. Wine list is extensive as is the mixed drink menu as well.
This restaurant is consistently outstanding-not just a one time deal. We've been coming here for years and have never been disappointed.

Was a Monday night and the restaurant was not overly busy but the service was painfully slow. Our server was perfectly competent and pleasant so not sure where the disconnect was but it was un-necessary for a Monday. Food was not up to the standards of Parizade, unfortunately.

The food was very good: grilled octopus appetizer was especially good, just enough to share with two people. I had the pork tenderloin with kale and polenta, which was excellent, and I couldn't finish it. Our server kindly let us share appetizers and helped our friends share the bouillabaisse. Three of us had the $5 martini special, though it was disconcerting to be told, first, that I could choose my gin, and then that the $5 special included only the house gin.

Was they for Father's Day dinner. Excellent choices,delicious food,great cocktails and deserts. Our server was extremely knowledgeable on menu,very attentive and we didn't feel rushed. I am a vergiarian and the eggplant parm was excellent! Everything was perfect from the bread basket to desert.
