“Good food, ambiance, drinks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This place has great food, ambiance and drinks! It's a little pricey though. But all in all, our waiter was very knowledgeable and explained everything on the menu including the drinks to the T. I heard it's now closed which is sad. I hope it's just temporary and it will reopen soon.

“Amazing meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

This was totally unexpected.
Amazing--fried artichokes, soft shell crab, fried olives, shrimp, chicken wings. We had several dishes. The only items, out of probably 12, that were just really good but not amazing, were the corn and rotisserie chicken. The drinks were like nothing we've ever had--so many flavors.
We were trying to decide between Drago's and Parrish. We only went with Parrish because it was more casual. It was a great choice and one of our favorite LA restaurants.
They do have a few outside tables, if you're lucky enough to reserve one. Also, big comfortable leather chairs inside. I can't say enough good things. Just amazing.
Forgot to mention the incredible--best I've ever had--bread pudding--knock ur socks off amazing!

“Delicious, inventive food with wonderful service in downtown L.A. Charming and still very contemporary.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

I'm not a knowledgable foodie but I dined with a few last night and we were all delighted. Very accessible and diverse menu but with great style and flavor. The wait staff was well informed, patient and attentive. It's clear that the kitchen staff pays great attention to detail. Kudos all the way around.

I'd love to go back the next time I visit.

It's worth noting that the restaurant is primarily on the second level. Don't let the casual first floor entryway/bar fool you. It's great upstairs.

“Meh?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

ON the bright side. It was not "bad" as one friend had said of her previous experience. ON the other hand, she was right that the fried oysters in the poutine were soggy, which, I can see who that happens, but if you're gonna do it, find a way to make it work. However, the bone was awesome! Buut, bone marrow kinda can't be anything BUT awesome.

Overall, worth a trip, but not a long one..
