I have been going to this establishment since it first opened and it has grown and improved consistently. The selection of wines is top notch and now they have added a selection of whiskey that is very agreeable. The prices are reasonable too! My only criticism used to be the menu...however, the new chef is amazing! I definitely recommend this... More

Just tried the Parallel bistro again after a few years and discovered it has been totally redone. What a delight it was! Such a welcoming, appealing and cozy atmosphere to enjoy wine and an appetizer. And of course a huge selection of wines and an extensive food menu! With great prices for both the early bird "crazy hour" and then... More

I've visited the restaurant three times and I've been disappointed each time. During my first visit the wine machines were broken and we couldn't sample and enjoy their wines. The second trip was a similar experience and the first three beers I ordered where not available or out of stock. The food is average and the service is below average.... More

The food and drinks were excellent especially the lobster mac and cheese. Also great burgers. Staff was excellent and very attentive. Manager stopped by our table. Only negative was the musician. He was not very good but he was loud.

Although a bit expensive per pour, Parallel does give you an opportunity to compare similar varietals. This is good fun with a larger group as economies of scale allow a greater range of tastings. The food platters, while also expensive, are very well prepared.

Yes, they got it right. This wine bar has a casual, refined atmosphere, good food and friendly smiling servers. The cheese board app was delicious as was our lunch. Outside dining space, parking aplenty, decor inviting, and check out the restroom. Nice time.

I have lived near Parallel for many years and for some reason never tried it out until now....I am sorry I waited so long! Parallel has great wine, whiskey, and food selections! Great atmosphere and service also. Fantastic place to go and have a few drinks on a summer night as the restaurant recently redesigned itself to be entirely open... More
