Atmosphere a plus, plus. Food was very good but pricey, especially wine. Service was only okay - bit disappointing at level of restaurant.

We walked the grounds of the Regent Palms before dinner. After reading a number of reviews, we were not eager to spend a small fortune on a mediocre dinner. We decided to go ahead with our original plan and went in. We were a bit early, so we sat outside and had a drink. Lovely ambiance. The manager stopped by to see if we were having a good evening. Dinner time approached and we were escorted to our table. Great position outside. The menu was excellent. We had a fantastic meal, nice wine. We lingered a while after dinner and soaked in the atmosphere. The outside dining room had a nice mix of people and it seemed as if everyone was having a good time. The manager stopped over a couple of times to check in to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Excellent, attentive service, excellent food and overall excellent experience. Expensive, but in this case, worth it.

We ate at Parallel 23 tonight because we heard great things about the restaurant. We were not impressed. The ambiance is beautiful, the setting is gorgeous, and there was a complimentary appetizer but that's about all the compliments I have. There were three of us, two ordered the lamb shank and one the seared tuna. There was good bread (focaccia with rosemary) and a tuna with ponzu sauce small appetizer bite that seemed promising. Dinner arrived and the tuna was good but the lamb shank was poorly cooked. The meat didn't fall off the bone and was hard to even get off the bone to eat. My husband said it was the worst lamb he's ever had. The tuna was good, ate all of it but it wasn't anything spectacular. The service was slow and we felt we didn't get nearly as good of service as those that were staying there. We ordered dessert and our water glasses sat empty since before we ordered the dessert until we left. For three cocktails, three main courses and one dessert the bill came to 230. Not worth the money as I sit here and eat leftover spaghetti and im the one who ordered the tuna.

Nothing special and overpriced. The service was slow, the food was ok, and the prices were excessive. I live in a major city and accustomed to pricey restaurants. This was average meals at an excessive price. There are many good places to eat in Provo, this one is just ok, but not at their price structure.
