Fun and bustling with energy on a Saturday night

The place was packed, and as such unfortunately we had to wait 30 minutes for our table (despite having a reservation). The only disappointment was that the hostess kept telling us to wait just a few more minutes...instead of suggesting we wait in the bar. After waiting 15 minutes, we said we were... read more

Love the electricity in this place. You can see the kitchen from most tables and get a sense of the professionalism and pride of the cook staff. Crowded the night we went but were efficiently seated and served. I do wish the food choices we made were better. Seafood risotto was a tomato based dish which I did not realize... More

We had not been to Parizade in a while and thought it might be nice for Valentine's Day. Not so much. We were seated promptly at a microscopic table for two. Right beside us was an obnoxious Philadelphian who must have thought everyone cared about his life story. My wife ordered a nice glass of Tempranillo and I ordered a... More

We have been dining here for years. The waiter was nonchalant at best for our Valentine's Day dinner. We had to stop him to ask for another glass of wine. The wine list was very good. The salmon appetizer was disappointing. The beef was the wrong temperature but was quickly made right. No seasoning kept it short of very good.

Cafe Parizade has been in Durham a long time. The restaurant is extremely fun to be in and in warm months there is seating outdoors. The food does vary from excellent to mediocre on a given night. There are rooms for renting, and it is a lovely place for wedding events. Great for an evening with friends or a loved... More

My husband and I ate here prior to taking in the Diana Ross show at DPAC. A beautiful dining room with excellent service. The appetizer-calamari, was delicious. My husband had Paella and I have the special- sheep head red snapper. Everything was delicious. The service was prompt and the overall experience was excellent. Will definitely plan to eat here again.

Parizade is a wonderful restaurant in Durham that is always consistent. The dining room has a great atmosphere with an open kitchen. The food is always fresh and delicious and the cocktails are scrumptious! If making a reservation, ask to be seated in the main dining room. We were there over Triangle Restaurant Week and they opened their banquet rooms... More

Had a blast working our way through the menu for lunch with a friend. Didn't love Tuna tartar. personal taste but the chile sauce made it too sweet for my palate. Feta lamb burger was wonderful. Also a delicious pasta dish. The dessert - a banana concoction - was amazing and would absolutely recommend. A tad pricey but most enjoyable.... More

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely meal here prior to a visit to Duke Medical. The food, wine, service and quiet ambiance were very good. There are lots of menu choices with a Mediterranean flair, each prepared with obvious care. Delicious dessert choices and great coffee too. It is moderately expensive, but our meal and time spent there were... More

Café Parizade is a popular restaurant near downtown Durham. The menu has a good selection of appetizers and main dishes and there is a full bar with a good wine list. I have eaten dinner there many times and have been there for three New Years Eve celebrations.
