This is a place that I take out of town guest to. It is also a great place to have an intimate dinner with your significant other.

Everything about this place was great. Free entertainment if you are lucky enough to grab a table in back by the open kitchen - its amazing to watch them crank it out on a busy nite! By they way, save room for dessert!

Located in Tremont, this lovely restaurant could be in New York City. It's a high end classy establishment with outstanding originally created food. Had the absolute best scampi EVER. Not always on the menu, but when it is, get it. The seating is a bit close, but that's part of the ambiance. Outside seating is available in a covered porch... More

We have been to Parallax quite a few times. Their sushi has always been great and their appetizers and entrees are fresh and modern. You won't be disappointed!!!

The service was pretty much terrible... I thought our server was SO RUDE! He yelled at one of the wait staff for bringing the wrong bowl for our mussel shells... so embarrasing for her and it made us all really uncomfortable. He could have just made the switch himself rather than reprimanding her. He also tried to rush us for... More

We had a very enjoyable dinner at Parallax. The restaurant is signature Zack Bruell. The interior is minimalist modern. Service is excellent. The cuisine is creative and very good. Presentation was very nice. This restaurant focuses on seafood with a variety of non-seafood entrees. I had a very well preferred redfish entree. My spouse had an excellent pork chop.

Zack Bruell knows his way around seafood and presents it in a lovely space -- contemporary and fresh. The sushi here is fantastic.

Really interesting creative dishes here. Specialty of the house leans toward fresh fish and seafood. We had the scallops as well as the Hake. Both were outstanding. Desserty might be the best though.
