We have eaten here several times, most recently for my birthday. We ate in the courtyard and it is a charming setting. Our appetizers (lemon gnocchi, calamari, mushroom soup) were excellent. The mains (pork chop, two pasta choices) were very good. The service is wonderful, even though we were outside and almost no one else had chosen to be there... More

I've eaten here dozens of times over the last 9 years. It is always a consistent meal and usually very good service. The menu was recently changed up - - or at least from the last time I was there. Still have some of the signature dishes. I've ordered the greek salad a number of times - and added calamari.... More

We were welcomed into the Parizade outdoor courtyard by the maître-d', and seated next to the waterfall. The ambience and service were only topped by the food. I had the best halibut I've ever tasted. Also, the desserts were unique and outstanding. Whatever you order, you can't go wrong. Go and enjoy! We have made a reservation to return for... More

I have been for lunch, not dinner, and can report the menu is excellent, the staff is friendly and attentive and the decor is pleasant. The food is above-average, not five-star but certainly four-star. The lunch menu is reasonably priced.

The place is a very small restaurant in a pretty green area. I was surprised with the great attitude that the restaurant staff showed. The menu is not very large and it doesn't really have many options for desert, however, everything I had was DELICIoUs. I recommend this place 100% , specially for couples or girls night out.

I decided to take my husband to Parizade to celebrate his 31st birthday. Neither of us had been there before, and it seemed to have mostly positive reviews. Our server was Daila and she was superb with excellent attention to detail. Every empty plate and used utensil was promptly cleared from our table. We never felt rushed, and she was... More

Cafe Parizade has always been one of my favorite restaurants in Durham although I had not been there for quite some time. But I do know it has become very pricy for their dinner menu. I was surprised to find Living Social coupons for there 4-course summer tasting menu so my wife and I went Saturday evening for a special... More

My husband and I went her for our anniversary. It has a beautiful bar, inviting atmosphere, attentive staff, and lots of fresh offerings. If I had to choose a negative, it is far away from other things that downtown has to offer. For us it was perfect because we stayed at the Hilton next door.

While our waitress Michele was wonderful, I expected more from the kitchen. The Beet Salad ($9) and the Caprese Salad ($9) had much too much vinegar on them. I had the duck ($26) and asked for the sauce on the side, which the staff failed to do. My husband enjoyed his Cioppino ($29). Neither of the hosts came to our... More

A great find. Fresh offerings, fun and beautiful bar, attentive staff make up a winning combination in this little gem. Our diets are vegan/vegetarian and it is sometimes difficult to find menus that address our choices with panache….but not here! We LOVED the eggplant, and the fish that night was utterly delectable. We skipped dessert this time, but would have... More
