“A Delicious Addition to the Neighbourhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Open about six weeks, the Parlour is a welcome addition to the neighbourhood. A small step up in price, and an enormous one in quality. The menu is very creative, especially the daily specials which tend to get away from the traditional pizza and pasta, offering items such as baked haddock. The traditionals are still there, often with new twists. Portions are very generous. Staff friendly and attentive. They also feature a wide selection of craft beers.The food is scratch made and delicious. Ideal for special family occasions, romantic dates, and single diners. I really hope they do well. .The only small quibble was that my spaghetti was cooked a minute or so more than ideal, sauce was delicious and the meat balls huge, tasty and home made. The accompanying salad was delicious, fresh and attractively presented. The home made bread was a real surpprise and excellent.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

This is such a great restaurant. If it's a romantic date, a family dinner or a social get together the parlour is the place to go. I love the meatball app, the bread is always fresh and made on site. They even have gluten free!!! My son loves the gluten free pizza (celiacs) we continue going cause he says it's the best in the city. Don't take my word for it but instead go try this place your self. The owners are a local husband and wife team who will always welcome you with a smile and warmest wishes. Parlour has become my favourite place to go.
Enjoy :)

“A New Treat in Ottawa West”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

The Parlour PIzza has just opened its doors in Greenbank Square, and brings a surprising and very welcome touch of imaginative cuisine and excellent service to a strip whose previous high point was its Tim Hortons.

The restaurant is small and intimate, fine for couples or small groups.

We began with the Parlour Salad (baby greens, golden beets, Ontario goat cheese and a light Dijon vinaigrette) - ingredients were fresh, tasty, the portion generous, and the vinaigrette perfect. Chicken wings (sorry, we HAD to) were moist, crisp, flavourful, and blessedly devoid of batter.

The menu offers a choice of fifteen gourmet pizzas (as well as a few pasta entrees). We chose the Wake and Bake - thin crust, with spinach, bacon, pecorino, mozzarella and romano cheeses, grape tomatoes, topped with a sunny-side up free range egg and accompanied by a choice of spiced oils. It worked wonderfully: I can't wait to work our way through the rest of the menu.

Service was quick, attentive, and very friendly. The restaurant also featured a surprisingly good list of wines and beer for such a small venue.

All in all, a very pleasant dining experience, and great addition to the neighbourhood.
