“One of, if not the best, restaurants in Cleveland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We have never failed to have an outstanding meal at Parallax. The seafood and sushi is always spectacularly good and fresh. The ambiance is fantastic and the bar scene is very strong. Don't miss this Cleveland gem.

“So many choices make this a unique dining event!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

This was my first visit to Parallax. My local manfacturer's rep selected the restaurant. Pulling up to the restaurant, which is located in a residential area, I never would have expected the fine dining experience that awaited. The menu has a plethora of unique selections, and the wording of the descriptions of each meal awakened my taste buds. We started off with sushi, which was delightful. Next I had a warm wild mushroom salad which was outstanding. There were so many tempting entrees, but I settled on the Vietnamese Chile-garlic shrimp. The presentation was a visual masterpiece, and the shrimp were cooked perfectly. The server we had was very professional, yet engaging and added to the total experience. This is definitely a restaurant I will visit again on a future business trip to Cleveland.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

This was our first visit to Parallax and we definitely will dine their again. The food was excellent - from the appetizer through dessert. Ryan, our server, did a great job! He was pleasant, professional, knowledgable about the menu and not afraid to offer suggestions / opinions. From the moment you arrive and are greeted by the host until the time you depart the valet, the service is excellent!

“We were treated like guests in someone's home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We went to dinner on a Friday evening with seven diners. From the time we walked in the front door the staff was very friendly and accommodating. One of our party is disabled and the staff made special arrangements to accommodate him and be sure that he was seated comfortably by the time we were all seated at our table.

From the maitre d' to the waiter and bus boys and even the manager, we were treated very well. Our waiter was very helpful and explained the food offerings and suggested wine pairings. We chose both a white and a Spanish red "E", that was so good we ordered another bottle.

From their bread basket, they served a crusty rye bread with a soft inside that was warm and delicious. The food selection was spectacular, everyone in our group raved about their dinner choice. I had sushi, it was fresh and nicely presented and one of the best sushi I've had. A few of our diners had the fish stew, commenting on the both the broth and the mixture of fish. My husband and a friend had had the scallops which they agreed melted in their mouth.

The staff was efficient and caring, coming by to check to see if we were enjoying our meal and if we needed anything further. We had tickets for an event and when we realized time was getting near, they helped move our dinner along.

This is a very well run restaurant, they care about their patrons and make you feel like a guest in their establishment. When we were leaving, even the manager came by to ask if everything met our expectations, I told him they not only met our expectations, but exceeded them!

We were traveling to Cleveland, but our family lives here, we will definitely be back to this restaurant.

“Great food, tight seating arrangements”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Met by the host, who was very friendly, led us to our table which was a 2 seat table. The tables are Very close to each other and if you are seated next to a loud table, you will not be able to hear your own conversation. We ordered a Sushi combo platter to start, which was excellent. Our entrees worked cooked to perfection and tasted so. Except for the very tight seating arrangements, do not miss this restaurant, for the food or the sushi.
