The food was good. Simple and tasty. The service was good. Our server was personable. The wines were quite good. The decor was nice, but the indoor space felt cold and empty. The lighting was off (maybe too bright?). I think with a few more additions and tweaks, the ambience could be greatly improved. Would def try it again.

Thank you very much for your review and feedback, and thank you for being here. We've just finally opened up inside and are super excited to keep adding the MCM pieces we curate and other components (I do find our entrance hanging fixture a bit bright and we are working on the right bulbs for this!, I'm with you)

The space is beautiful! I reserved a table on the patio, it was raining quite heavily, but it still worked out. The food looked and tasted wonderful. The staff was friendly and welcoming. I will recommend Parlour to everyone I know!

Fun ambiance, good energy, food (salade niçoise, fish ‘n chips, crunchy chicken) and wine were delicious! A+ to inventive and scrumptious desserts. Sommelier and owner really pleasant. Our server was kind but could be more knowledgeable.

My burger and fries were not served really hot.
An adjacent table was quite noisy.
As often happens as a single woman I was seated at a less desirable table (next to the street.
Service was a bit slow.

Can't say enough about how amazing our birthday date night here was. The waitress we had was so friendly, so attentive, and so kind, they made us feel right at home and never rushed. I also wanted to ensure that my partner wasn't able to pay as it was his birthday, and the hostess who greeted us, called me ahead of time to confirm my reservation, and the waitress we had all worked with my super discreetly to ensure that my boyfriend had no idea I'd be handling the bill. We had such a lovely night, and can't wait to see what their indoors seating will look like when it opens! The brisket fries, corn chowder, and the fried chicken sandwich were all outstanding. We immediately texted our friends while there recommending this spot!

Loved the outdoor DJ - great vibe. My meal was very tasty, and the staff were very pleasant and attentive. Some in our group found their meals a bit disappointing - perhaps meals coming out too quickly from the kitchen without all the seasoning. One meal was forgotten altogether and came to the table very late - which they generously took off the bill without us even asking. Parlour probably does very well with a smaller number of patrons per night. With the recent increased publicity, they were very busy and it seemed like they were not able to keep up and the quality of the food and drinks suffered.

I am willing to give Parlour another chance some other time but this was my first time there and the service was terrible unfortunately I do not recall the name of our waiter. We ask for food recommendations and questions about the menu and no luck sadly on getting accurate answers, our cocktails appeared at the same time as our main(of which we had ordered separately). Food was ok, and it was not a busy night

Best friend chicken sandwich I've ever had! Chicken was moist and it definitely lives up to the hype. Our server was amazing, super attentive and sweet. He noticed that a small fly had gone into my cocktail right as he was going to serve it to me and took it back right away to get me a new one. Cute little spot that didn't make me feel out of place in my t-shirt and jeans!

French fries were perfect 👍

Fabulous! Lovely outdoor patio with twinkle lights and really comfortable chairs (even for those of us with larger bottoms). Food was delicious (best chicken burger ever!) and instead of fries or salad pickled veggies were served - a fantastic fresh twist! The dessert was so yummy (lemon curd with pound cake and a raspberry coulis). Servings are the perfect size, you don’t leave wishing you had eaten less. Service was excellent, attentive, warm and quick!

The food was wonderful, staff were lovely, and the patio area looks really cute. Very nearly a five star experience. The only issues were the noise on the patio (traffic + a noisy air conditioning unit) and potentially the portion sizes (one dining partner was still hungry, I was mostly satisfied, and one thought the sizes were just right - it was sort of a Goldilocks situation). If you eat meat, I recommend the brisket sandwich. Sooooo good!

Hi Mallory Thank you for sharing your experience and great review. As a new business we really need this feedback- next time we can seat you on the Grange ave. lower patio corner, tree lined and away from the AC. Wellington St. level patio is a busy spot so the traffic and busy people watching is part of the charm, I suppose. Hope to host you again soon. Erin & the Parlour team
