One of my favorite restaurants. The food is always interesting, delicious and beautiful to look at. The service is superb. The ambience is a tad loud, but still pleasing. I think the prices for most of the menu are about 20% too high though. The high prices make it a special occasion place rather than a monthly treat. Their annual... More

This restaurant, complete with its refreshing high-ceiling architecture and the somewhat unusual, titillating artwork adorning the ceilings and walls, captured my heart and my appetite when I first came to North Carolina about 20 years ago. After enjoying countless lunches and dinners over the years, in apparent virtual anonymity, I declared Parizade my favorite restaurant, a place to which I... More

Third was dinner with our son and his family, including a 2 year old. My first meal was a group meal: chicken entree with salad. Remarkably good food and service for a group; I was... More

We were very impressed and will be returning regularly. This is the first restaurant that really blew my socks off since moving to Durham. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is elegant and the prices are pretty reasonable for the level of service and quality of food.

We attended a very nice reception at Parizade during graduation weekend. The food (appetizers) was very good and the service was excellent. The private room was nice and the restaurant itself had a nice atmosphere.

We hosted an event here in their banquet room and had a wonderful experience. The staff was very professional and had everything set up ahead of time and were willing and ready to make changes to the room as soon as we arrived. The bartender for the event was friendly and made excellent drinks. We ended up staying after our... More

I came here with a work group and was very impressed with the unbelievable service and quality of food. Not only were the main dishes exceptionally well prepared and presented but the appetizers and service were excellent. I mentioned the high quality of service mainly because it is one of the things that people often miss when it's not there... More
