We celebrated a family birthday at Parizade last night. The hostess was delightful, our waiter was skilled and attentive. My daughter ordered the lamb chops from the regular menu. Parizade boasts of a Mediteranean cuisine, so this should have been a good choice. The original order of chops did not arrive with the other four entrees. The waiter explained that... More

We went to this place for our Anniversary. The vibe is so romantic,and we were lucky enough to catch the live guitarist. We both had steak, which was delish. I can't wait to go back here.

Don't be fooled by the strip mall location. This Mediterranean restaurant is wonderful! The fixed price menu is stellar. The Parizade salad was perfect, as was my husband's Greek salad. My Chicken Souvlaki Kebob was excellent. The Black Velvet Praline Torte was to die for! If only I lived closer & could eat their more often!

I was there for a business function. The food was in general good. The ribeye was average. Service was good. Nothing special to remember.

Meal and service were fabulous. I'd go back anytime I was in town! There were 8 in our party and everyone was happy with his/her choice. Swordfish special done perfectly, pork chop was a favorite of others as well as pasta choices! Whole experience was terrific.

The Parizade has beautiful ambience, but I found the food to be average. I ordered the fried calamari as an appetizer, Seared Scallops and Spinach and Goat Cheese Gratin as an entree. Let's start with the positive, the seared scallops were delicious. The spinach and goat cheese gratin was okay. I found the fried calamari to be a little salty.... More

Several couples attend the Greek Night at Parizade's Restaurant each year. It is well attended and had outside and inside seating. The food is laid out throughout the restaurant; with a big variety of salads, meats, vegetables and deserts. It starts early, around 5:30pm, and ends with a dance line of customers circling inside the restaurant to get ready to... More

Last night was my fourth experience at Parizade's annual Greek Night. As in the past, it was absolutely fabulous! The food is outstanding in quality, presentation and abundance. The atmosphere in the courtyard - which is my favorite - was spectacular with the waterfall, garden atmosphere, yet accommodating such a great number of patrons. The service was outstanding, considering the... More

Parizade is a nice restaurant with a very eclectic and bohemian decor. The menu has a lot of different choices, fish, meat, pasta, salads. The drinks and wine list are very good and have a lot of great options. Had the tuna tartar and octopus appetizers. The tuna was not a typical tartar dish - there was not as much... More

Summary: Second experience Food: Mediocre and poorly executed Service: Slow, awkward and arrogant Surrounding: Attractive but noisy Value: Poor Bottom Line; Look elsewhere The rest of the story: I recently visited family in Chapel Hill and coincidentally celebrated my birthday. It was decided that we would go out to celebrate and Parizade was selected as the venue. Reservations were made... More
