“OK brunch, but disappointing service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Husband and I recently visited for brunch. They had some good reviews online and the food sounded tasty. I'd say it was an average meal with a cool ambiance. We had to wait for a table, which was fine, given that it was about Noon on a Sunday. But, there is not a good place to sit if you're waiting and the bar is full. We ended up waiting outside. Thankfully things are cool this August in Atlanta! Once we were seated, I was very impressed with the surroundings, but notsomuch with the waitstaff. Took about 10 minutes before anyone stopped by, as we watched tables around us get waited on immediately. The first person who stopped by was not our server - just someone who didn't speak, but dropped off silverware we didn't need, since there was already some on the table. When our waitress came, she was so awkward it was uncomfortable!! She spoke barely above a whisper. She took forever to bring our drinks, didn't bring cream for the coffee even though we requested it, and we had to ask her to bring stirrers. She did finally admit it was her first day off training. Not fair to subject her - or us - to her first day during a busy brunch. The food came out really quickly, which was a big pro. It was only OK, sadly. I had the lemon pancakes and they were good, but my husband's chicken and biscuits was dry. Major fail to serve dry biscuits in the South!! All in all, I'd say for the price, eh, save your money and head over to Flying Biscuit.

“Great ambience, food and style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012 via mobile

Went with friends for a great night at Parish. Service was a little slow at first but very friendly and picked up. The food has an interesting and eclectic selection. Everyone enjoyed their meals very much. We were also impressed with the old distressed look of what was an old factory office. This is a great place with style, great food and conversation.

“Unique atmosphere, great menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

I went to Parish one Sunday night for dinner with friends and found it easy to find, with easy parking, unique/vintage Louisiana atmosphere and a delicious sound menu that made it very hard to decide what to order! I had the squash salad, cheese plate and gnocchi, followed by roasted strawberry creme brulee with cracked pepper short bread for dessert. YUM. I would have gotten the legendary friend chicken but they'd had a busy weekend and were all out. The wine list was very adequate, and the cocktails looked very good. I will definitely be back for brunch sometime soon which I hear is also delicious. I'd also like to check out the "& goods" part - the little store downstairs which on just a quick glace appears to have tasty take away food items that would be fun to browse and would likely make good little gifts.

All in all - delicious, not super pricey, good atmosphere. I'll be back!

“$25 Coupon for Summer is a Very Good Deal- Access from Concentrics Website”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

We had a very good dinner here on June 23, 2012 and with the $25 off coupon they have for the summer (good 7 days), it was also a pretty decent deal. We had the chicken liver pate, two fish entress (one great, one so-so... the trout), and our bread pudding and strawberry creme brulee desserts were both very good. Excellent service, kind of a boarding house dining room feel (and not quiet), and very efficient valet parking. Overall a most pleasant dining experience.

“Great Find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

We were searching for a place to stop and eat at in Atlanta while passing through this past weekend. We stopped at Parish. I've not been to that particular neighborhood in probably five to ten years, and it is a vibrant spot to enjoy local shops, restaurants, bars, and green space. The restaurant is surrounded by other locations which would be conducive to trying several of the places. The space itself was decorated well. They have a small patio which was enjoyed on our Saturday afternoon visit. The service was average. The food was really good. We only had the brunch and lunch options, but they had plenty to choose from. The grilled romaine salad was very tasty, and the fried green tomato blt was good. I would like to go back for the dinner menu.
