Parizade hosted our party of 30 on relatively short notice (less than a week), and we had a wonderful meal. Service was great, the food came out quick once we got our orders in, and everything was delicious for a very reasonable price! Portion size was good too, something often lacking in these group meals. We'll definitely be back!

Parizade has always been an easy go to place. Not in busy downtown. Lovely ambience. Always find something to eat. Always tastes good. Last pm I sat outside on a gorgeous spring night and had my first encounter with the new menu. Happy to see some old favorites like -- banana rum napoleon -- was still there. The Caesar salad...

Used to love this place - but the new menu that just came out is a major downgrade from previous food options. Too bad - not sure what they were thinking...

We went here again because we had such a wonderful time when we visited for our daughter's birthday. This time, the ambiance and everything else was good, but my wife's meal was not good. the appetizer (salmon) was very good. the wine was good, my meal (tenderloin steak) was tasty and well cooked. My wife had the stuffed chicken, but... More

Visited here with my wife. We split two appetizers - fried brussels sprouts and roasted octopus - and the angel hair pasta with shrimp. The brussels sprouts were tasty. The octopus was served with gnocchi, and was heavy on the gnocchi, light on the octopus. The angel hair pasta was pretty sparing with the shrimp, as well. Both the gnocchi... More

Service was very very slow. Waiter forgot to bring our drinks and food was just meh. Super disappointed. Had the seafood risotto and the menu was misleading, says a garlic basil sauce and it's a red sauce, ordered calamari but fryer was broken. Don't waste your time or money there are much better restaurants in Durham.

Shared a Mothers' Day brunch here with my wife and both our families. It was a very nice spread of food, and for the most part, it was great. After eating at Parizade many times over the years, I realized that Giorgios Bakatsias created something special for this part of Durham when it opened. However, while a foodie culture has... More

We were hosted as an event in a separate room. Good food and good environment for corporate/office event, but also for nice dinner out with friends.

We went for lunch on Valentines Day. I love the decor here and the interesting layout with the bar and kind of front and back restaurant area. Feels large and substantial but also intimate.

Parizade is a Mediterranean restaurant with excellent service and menu. I happened to be there during Durhams restaurant week, and went with the fixed price pick three offering. The pork cheek cassoulet was an excellent start, not something I would generally order but I was feeling adventurous and was rewarded for it. For my main course I had the braised... More
