Parizade Ratings and Reviews
This was my first trip to Parizade. I had Mediterranean food before but never this fresh and tasty. My boyfriend took me for my birthday and we sat out in the court yard, which is beautiful with a water fall, trees and tables. The waiter couldn't have been any better - he was there with our food, drinks and clearing the table right when we needed him. There was a 50th year class reunion in the courtyard at the same time and it was fun to meet a lot of the people who had graduated 50 years ago. Overall a wonderful, memorable night.
John our server was very experienced and nice. I told them it was a second date and I was put in a nice cozy spot and John let us talk and we where not rushed at all.
There was a crying child at 7 o'clock at night on a Monday, not their fault..
The last plancha appetizer was very nice,
The swordfish picata was perfect, sauce wasn't broken. The grouper was light , flaky and fresh.
Over all great date spot, unscale classy place. But not snobby. Many dressed up but some folks wore jeans and golf shirts.
I would go again. Especially for drinks and apps.
Parizade was recommended by a friend. We were visiting the area. The food, service and ambience, were all excellent. I had the Tagliatelle and my husband had the steak. He likes his steak extremely rare and though a man of few words that doesn't compliment very easily, he said his steak was "perfection"! The Tagliatelle was excellent, loaded with vegetables.
We also purchased a gift certificate for our friend and she was most appreciative.
The service was not really nice, I didn't feel really welcomed. One of my friend had a supposedly edible flower on his plate, that two of my friends tasted and both of the people had a very unfomfortable throat ache after. When we mentioned to the waiter, he just looked like as if he would not really believe and said or did nothing. I think this way of treating customers is not acceptable.
My wife and I went for greek night as we do every year. We had 7:30 reservations.
By the time we arrived the roast lamb was all but gone and the dessert selection was down to 3 items from the listed 6 on the menu.
Everything we did have was fantastic but was disappointing that several menu items were not available.
The music and dancing was fun while it lasted but fizzled out after only 45 minutes or so.
Finally, the dinner was served buffet style. All the wait staff needed to do was fill drinks, bring wine and clear used dishes. I didn't appreciate there being a 30% gratuity added for this service. I changed it myself down to 20% and I feel that was still high for someone to bring drinks and clear a few dishes (which took a while, more than 5 minutes to fill our water initially and get a drink order in). I feel the wait staff were very friendly but should have been able to keep up with the limited service they were asked to do especially since they wanted to much for tips. Disappointing service.
The service and the food were both very good. I was surprised that the table at which we were seated was not fully set; we were missing bread plates, and it took a bit to get them.
The Portuguese octopus appetizer was excellent. I had the risotto Nero, and my date had the cavatelle. Both were delicious.
Our server Madison was very professional.
We are looking forward to returning.
The food was delicious but the bar service was suspect. I ordered a vodka martini and the bartender put the drink in a metal martini shaped vessel. It totally changed the taste and flavor of the drink to a metallic cup of swill. I asked about a martini glass when I ordered my second drink and they actually had to hunt for one. What upscale restaurant do not have a proper stock of Martini glasses?
The friendly but elegant service made this Parizade experience special. The wait staff timed the courses perfectly.
The red snapper, wine and asparagus were tastey, but the grilled seafood small plate made the night---it was slightly crisp, with a slightly smoky-salty flavor.
I was disappointed in the selection of desserts-the only chocolate selection was candy, and there wasn't an apple, lemon or strawberry cake/crisp/etc. choice on the menu.
We went with friends to celebrate an important birthday. Everything was great; from Chris, our waiter to the great menu. All were very pleased with their meals. We had steak, chicken and pork. Each was prepared perfectly. Completely enjoyable, completely dependable. Wonderful night.
We had a nice dining experience at Parizade this week. Our 3 course dinner began with grilled octopus, lamb keftedes, and a fresh greek salad. We were pleasantly surprised with our flavorful marinated pork chop, and Shrimp Giorgios over angel hair pasta. Our dessert selections featured layers of a rich dark chocolate torte, and a Mediterranean interpretation of banana pudding, topped with a phyllo pastry, sprinkled with cinnamon.
Our server, Allie, was warm and professional. She monitored our progress without hovering, provided smooth transition between courses, and was graceful in her delivery.
Parizade is in its 25th year, and physical upgrades are in progress. We nestled into new banquette seating, and our eyes were drawn to new wallcovering across the main dining room. The festive ceiling art remains.
The restrooms are completely new, and the tile walls, sinks, and fixtures, are glistening.
Parizade's ongoing investments in the interior, the new seasonal menus, and the training of the staff are apparent they will continue to thrive in years ahead. We will return, and encourage others to consider It, as well.
