    Nice ambiance and decor. Had high expectations for the food, but it didn't quite deliver for the price point. Perhaps we should've had the brisket.

    Nice spot. There's a lot of room between tables, so it's relatively private. A little noisy with the music, but talkable. Each of us at the table found our food to be superb, and the cocktails were different .... and tasty. Good food and attentive service throughout our meal made for an overall highly pleasant dining experience. I will definitely be back!

    I definitely recommend Parlour to all my friends and colleagues, whether for food and bev or events. However, I'm not likely to recommend a Friday night. I can't know if it's understaffed or other hidden challenges behind the scenes, but service on every Friday I've been has been very slow. It's one thing to have a server constantly hovering, but we managed to only get 3 drinks in about 4 hours and minimal water. Food and drinks were 10/10 tho. Cheers.

    Last minute booking that did not disappoint. The space is so unique and we enjoyed everything we ate and drank. Service was a tiny bit slow and we were served our starter before we ever got our drinks. Would definitely go back.

    Our dinning experience for valentines days was absolutely heightened by the service and atmosphere that our server Dylan gave us tonight. From the cocktail recommendations and explanations to the food. He suggested items we would’ve never thought to try and were absolutely blown away with what we got. 10/10 would recommend here and specifically Dylan to bring what he does to the experience!

    Service was so poor I was shocked, for the cost of food and drinks you would expect it to be much better. Our table was not ready even though we had a reservation so they sat us on a couch with a chair. They left a broken chair in the restaurant and unfortunately we were the lucky ones that got to sit in it and it’s collapsed, which could’ve resulted in injury but the staff were very nonchalant about it offering no apology. Took 30 minutes for them to even take our drink order and then it took another 20 minutes to get them. Bathrooms were also in horrible conditions with water flooding the floors, not cleaned and not maintained.

    Beverages and food were excellent. I had devilled eggs, cod, pavlova. My only complaint is that the veg accompanying the cod was very scant. A couple of tablespoons worth of pureed butternut squash was too little. I felt like I just had a slab of cod on its own. The size of the cod serving itself was reasonable.

    The food was outstanding; the service was outstanding. We appreciated having the music turned down when we first arrived - it was already too loud for us to chat easily. We really like that the tables are not squished together. We didn't have to overhear anyone else's loud conversations or be bumped continuously, as happens in many other restaurants.

    My friends & I enjoyed our dinner at TPD. I’ve eaten at the restaurant a few times and always loved the food. It’s the best! My scallops were cooked to perfect and salad was delish! The only downside for me/us was being seated under a speaker. While the atmosphere was elegant and beautiful, the level of the music made it difficult for us to engage in conversation/talk with yelling.

    Food and cocktails were very good and ambiance was amazing but the service was unfortunately ridiculously slow. The restaurant wasn’t very busy at the time and despite this we waited so long to order, get our bill, etc. Our empty plates sat in front of us for over 40 minutes before the server came by… we were very disappointed by this.

    Great space but needs some work. The chairs were very rocky and needed to be fixed. Not a comfortable table to sit at. Our server was lovely but the wait/ timing was off. Drinks were well made and the highlight for sure. Food was beautifully presented but missed the mark for the value. Overall it was good, but not a 10/10.

    This was our second time to visit Parlour, and it was as memorable and fun an experience as our first time with the whole family! This time we were only three; again celebrating the birthday of our youngest son. The ambience is lovely, the food is beautifully presented and super delicious! Our server, Eaba, was cheerful and very attentive. And there were two other of your fine staff who attended to us as well. We thanked Eaba throughout our enjoyable meal, however, please thank him again and all of your staff present on November 23rd, 2023, for all the care and attention given to us. :)

    I love this place! This was my second time and food was fantastic and service is always top notch! Ambiance is gorgeous and airy. I had the duck confit-I do wish there was a larger portion of sides served with it as the small greens and 3 sliced baby potatoes did leave me a little hungry, and the creme brule also seemed like the dish was low. Otherwise I do enjoy this restaurant and will be back again!

    Love Parlour! Amazing service! Our server was a gem, just lovely and so attentive and personable. I was disappointed in our seating. I was entertaining family from Toronto and Fredericton and had hoped for a better table then near the kitchen which was noisy. My family loved Parlour and had no complaints!
