Great for Special Brunch Days

We went to Parallel for their Mother's Day Brunch and it was excellent. They took reservations so we knew we had seating for our large family gathering (they had two seating for breakfast this day). Not sure how their dinner worked, but I assume reservations were available, too. The brunch was... read more

I was very surprised at the speed and attentiveness of service on a very busy Saturday night. Our server, Nick, knew the menu and wine selection very well and was able to make some suggestions that made for a very memorable evening. I had the chop and everything on my plate including the sides was outstanding and paired very well... More

Went for dinner with my daughter and her friend. They thought there would be entertainment but we choose the wrong night. I could the decor did not match the price point for the wine and food. The food selection was Ok, the wine was extensive and could be bought by the glass, but over priced. The staff needed more training... More

Our friends introduced us to this restaurant and we loved it! The food was great! We loved all the wine we tasted. What a great idea to let customers taste many wines some of which are super expensive without making them buy the entire bottle. We enjoyed the atmosphere as well - not too loud. Our waiter was also very... More

Have visited on several occassions with both friends and family. The wine selection is huge - now they've added whiskey! And the menu is always unique and tasty. Never disappointed!

The wine by the glass selection is good, but, at least on the evening I visited, food was well below average and the service was very slow

We visited recently with friends. The food quality was outstanding and exceptional. We were in awe that such quality food preparation was available in the suburbs. Kudos to the Chef. Super nice atmosphere with a guitarist entertainer playing live beautiful songs. Wine lists are superbe. Every single wine we tasted was incredibly good and perfect. Cheese selections perfect. They opened... More

Went and enjoyed happy hour on the patio with live music. So nice and relaxing and not loud so we could actually visit. Huge selection of wines which is awesome and a nice selection of unique appetizers. Definitely recommend especially if weather permits to sit outside.

After changing the chef a while back, Parallel has gotten back into the groove. The duck fat fries and bruschetta were delicious. I am a little disappointed the portion sizes are smaller, but the food and wine selection are great. The ambiance is pretty good except for the window. The window isn't as warm or sexy as the rest of... More
