While our waitress Michele was wonderful, I expected more from the kitchen.
The Beet Salad ($9) and the Caprese Salad ($9) had much too much vinegar on them. I had the duck ($26) and asked for the sauce on the side, which the staff failed to do. My husband enjoyed his Cioppino ($29). Neither of the hosts came to our table to ask how the food was. Wish I had a better review but I expected more from Cafe Parizade.
Close parking is limited so expect a walk. The music seemed loud and not what I expected during a quiet dinner.

A great find. Fresh offerings, fun and beautiful bar, attentive staff make up a winning combination in this little gem. Our diets are vegan/vegetarian and it is sometimes difficult to find menus that address our choices with panache….but not here! We LOVED the eggplant, and the fish that night was utterly delectable. We skipped dessert this time, but would have loved to have seen what the pastry chef was working on…you see, the layout of the restaurant is excellent…you can watch the kitchen, the pastry chef, the bartender…most all the staff, if you can take your eyes off your date (which I rarely do….;)) Funky, eclectic, and great service with a solid menu…we would be here weekly for the specials….Thanks for the find Tripadvisor!

We have eaten at Parizade numerous times and we know it's going to be a great meal with kind and helpful personal. The reservation was simple to make. The halibut was outstanding preceded by calamari. Our out of town guests were impressed with the casual atmosphere ,service and the deserts. The menu accommodated the vegetarian requests. A bit noisy . A bit pricy but get what you pay for.

We were in NC on vacation to visit my sister.

The assortment of bread with dipping oil was the perfect way to start the meal and it placed on our table just before we were seated – a nice touch.

The scallop crudo appetizer was very tender and a bit spicy – this is prepared like sushi. The caprese and Parizade salads were very excellent.

The braised short ribs were fall off the bone tender – just perfect. The crab cakes were very good. The rabbit was good but not great – the rabbit was shredded into very small pieces and got lost in the dish.

The apple crisp and chocolate desserts were just the right way to finish and excellent meal.

The Malbec Reserve was an excellent wine at a great price. The millionaire drink was just right.

The service was professional and friendly.

We have been here many times. You will not go wrong. They can also adapt their offerings for vegan and gluten free diets. Service is good, with a busy but pleasant atmosphere - we feel like we are not in Durham (although we like Durham fine!)
