    Pretty restaurant with fast friendly service. The wood fired pizzas are fantastic and we all enjoyed the appetizers- try the corn on the cob side dish! Fun cocktail menu. Very enjoyable dinner

    Overall, an agreeable, comfortable place. I felt my pasta dish had a premium price that wasn't warranted as it came without a side salad or cup of soup and bread is not even provided at the table.

    Great place with great service. They were out of our first and second entree choices. We were a little disappointed that we had to choose dinner a third time to find something they actually had in the kitchen.

    We ate outdoors, heat lamps would have been nice. But noise level indoors was impossible. Super yummy food. Plenty of vegetable-based selections. Giant salad big enough for a family. By contrast small serving octopus. Chef came out and talked to us about my diet requests, yay! We were so appreciative. In contrast, waitress seemed to know nothing about the Amari or the drink selections. Despite all, we would gladly come back here for the food, and it was quite affordable.

    What a lovely find! Excellent food (the sauces were especially delicious). Had the meatballs, the roast chicken, the branzino. We didn't have the pizza, but it smelled and looked fantastic coming out of the kitchen. The service was really good, nearly all stars, just a little slow to get to us in the beginning. That being said we ended up asking for extra sauce and it wasn't a problem. The chef stopped by to chat, which was fun. We will definitely head back next time we're out and about in the area.

    Went early on a Tuesday evening - 6:00 PM. We were a bit early and were seated immediately. Staff was attentive but not obtrusive, and extremely helpful with questions. The food was delicious, outstanding, in fact. Noise level rose later in the evening - might be a problem on a weekend night. This was my friend's first visit, and we're already planning for the next one.

    We waited a half hour to get our cocktails The server sent someone else to tell us they had no diet cole or ginger ale after 40 minutes The branzino was the tiniest piece I’ve ever had…not even appetizer size When I asked the waiter about this he looked embarrassed and blamed it on the chef I had to eat another meal somewhere else afterwards Though the help is nice there is a huge disconnect between the staff and the needs of the diners I won’t go back

    Food was surprisingly fantastic, great flavors, interesting contemporary take on Italian cuisine. Arancini with fungi and truffle oil appetizer and meatballs appetizer both fantastic, with expressive, distinct flavors. Service was mediocre. Desserts disappointing - a tiramisu that was mushy, lethargic and lacking taste. We sat outside which was nice. The inside ambiance is very nice. I would return for the food quality. Would like to see service improved.

    Great food but environment needs work. The table was so sticky our menu stuck to it! The room is a huge cavern and the music made it very difficult to hear. Service was trying but the bar was so backed up that drinks took forever. I hope they can improve these issues because the food was really good!

    Great food, good ambience. They have fantastic cocktails--including a mezcal-based drink with ginger that leaves me craving it. The summer menu has some tasty pizzas, including one with roasted corn and another with wild mushrooms. The smoked trout salad is delish!

    This was our first time to Parlour and most likely our last unfortunately. We had high hopes considering the vibe seemed nice and the menu seemed diverse. It ultimately came down to the service and the offerings. Having a full bar we decided to order two martinis and waited for 15 minutes to find out that they didn't have the ingredients to make the drinks. The server even came out 10 minutes after ordering to clarify the type of vodka we wanted. Then we ordered two salads - the caesar and a beet salad. The caesar came out 10 minutes later which was fine but the beet salad never made it out. The server came to the table 15 minutes later to inform me that they didn't have the beet salad. I'm fine if an item is missing but I waited 25 minutes after ordering to find out they didn't have it. An hour into the meal the server came to the table to apologize for the service and offered to refresh our drinks - which then showed up on the bill. The main courses were ok but the pasta was cooked about 2 minutes too long. It's possible that the server was new - but the management really failed on providing a great experience.

    Overall the food was delicious and my cocktail was amazing. But the salad had too much dressing on it and I had to scrape it off. The outdoor dining is a little loud because it's built out into the street but I really appreciate it being able to be outside on such a lovely evening. This is a perfect place to dine when you're going to show it the fall a little bit upscale and not overly pricey for the quality food.

    This was our first time here. I instantly loved the whole vibe. I loved the decor, the staff, the proximity to the Fox Theatre and the food. I had the mushroom and leek pizza, which I loved. Our friend had the margarita pizza which was also very good. My boyfriend had the napolitano pizza. Unfortunately, this will be my only negative comment. Instead of a traditional napolitano pizza with just tomatoes, cheese and basil, it was topped with anchovies, sliced kalamata olives and capers which made for an over-the-top salty pizza. He was unable to eat it. He had one piece. He ultimately left it behind. That is my only negative comment, otherwise, we will be back and will highly recommend the restaurant.

    My least favorite dishes was the Caesar salad and the octopus. The croutons were so big I couldn’t get a bite. Half of the little gems were yellow. The octopus had a nice texture but there was so much seasoning it tasted very salty. I sent it back because I couldn’t finish it. The people there were very nice but the food was not good.

    Our first time. Great setting, really nice team. Drinks were great, food was o.k., but they were out of things which given it was Saturday and they were not that busy was unfortunate. All said, restuarants are really just getting going as Covid restrictions relax, so it is undersrandable.

    I read a review saying Parlour had fabulous pizza and it really did. We also tried the mussels and they were great. I'd go back in a heartbeat. The only drawbacks: 1) it seems that every restaurant in the bay area has decided to up the ventilation and turn down the heat during Covid. Personally I am tired of dining in cold restaurants. 2). Everything is hard edged so it is very noisey.

    We were in Oakland for the marathon. Parlour was the only “Italian” within walking distance from our 4 different hotels. I looked at their menu online. There are 2 different ones. I called the restaurant 2 days beforehand. I explained our situation and asked they generally had pasta specials beside the 3 (octopus, lamb shank bolognese, and gnocchi. When we got there, there were no specials, AND no gnocchi! Not wonderful.

    Food was very good - we had two pizzas and a salad that were very fresh and delicious. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive to service. On the down side the chairs/benches were uncomfortable and worn and the paper menus were dirty and faded. Bathrooms were very clean and the location was an easy walk from Snow Park. Would probably try it again but would not take anyone on the "bigger" side - they wouldn't fit on the seating.
