Despite the weather and many restaurant closings, Cafe Parizade was open and serving its special kind of deliciousness! A broad selection of wine by the glass and bottle gave a range of price and vintage options. After predinner cocktails, we enjoyed a light and crisp pear and endive salad with the viniagrette a clean complement to the spiciness of the... More

We were able to walk to Parizade from our hotel and had made the decision to go after reading Trip Advisor. The dining room is lovely and very comfortable. The room was full as was the bar so noise was elevated but festive. Our waiter was very good, David, I believe, and made an effort to be attentive. I did... More

Came back here again for a holiday meal with our work group, and felt like we encountered many of the same likes/dislikes as last year. The service is good, if sometimes a bit odd - our waitress sometimes seemed incredibly disappointed with us for our decisions - such as not getting wine, no dessert, etc. and questioned other choices we...

My wife and I have been to this restaurant several times this year. Each and every time was truly a dining experience. The rack of lamb was outstanding. The flavor bursts in your mouth. My wife is partial to seafood and she always enjoys the variety of fish as well as the different preparations. The pastries after dinner go great... More

The American Dance Festival had their annual Fete here. Fabulous! Made even more memorable when Pilobolus came out on the dance floor and cut loose.

We celebrated a family birthday at Parizade last night. The hostess was delightful, our waiter was skilled and attentive. My daughter ordered the lamb chops from the regular menu. Parizade boasts of a Mediteranean cuisine, so this should have been a good choice. The original order of chops did not arrive with the other four entrees. The waiter explained that... More

Don't be fooled by the strip mall location. This Mediterranean restaurant is wonderful! The fixed price menu is stellar. The Parizade salad was perfect, as was my husband's Greek salad. My Chicken Souvlaki Kebob was excellent. The Black Velvet Praline Torte was to die for! If only I lived closer & could eat their more often!
