Went to Parlour with a group of friends and enjoyed every minute. Food, service and atmosphere was great. Parlour had a great buzz to it but not enough to interfere wth our conversations and catch up. Highly recommended.

The many times I have been to Parlour, it has been excellent. Great food, extensive wine list and usually exceptional service. I have written many positive reviews for this restaurant. But last night’s experience was so disappointing. The service in particular was terrible. I had...More
