We contacted all the bookings for NYE and we pivoted as best as we could to help lessen the blow. We were also short staffed due to the impacts of Covid. But to say the least me and my staff had a great time considering the unfortunate circumstances that we were dealt, which has also been felt by the hospitality industry as a whole nationally. I'm not suprised to recieve a poor review for NYE, just didn't think someone would. (Laugh) Noriel (Owner)

Staff were efficient but the place could benefit from one or two more waitstaff. The staff also need a little refinement in the subtleties of table service. For example; removing entree dishes from the table before serving mains, bringing cutlery to the table before serving dessert, not trusting everything to memory as they forgot one dish. Excellent value for money though.

We had to wait over an hour for the food.Then had to ask when it would be coming-only to be asked "what was your order?" before it arrived 15 mins later! Had to ask where our drink order was before it eventually came. Can't really recommend it.

To be honest with you, we have had recruitment issues...a number of staff left to enjoy Christmas with their families and a number of them fell to the waist-side from the extra pressure left from staff leaving. It's a COVID thing. There's a shortage in committed staff and it's felt by the Hospo Industry as a whole. It's a challenge but Parlour will bounce back! Noriel (Owner)

The hospo industry as a whole is suffering from a lack of experience and committed staff - my roster dwindled from a strong staff of 20 to 4 staff during the weeks leading up to Christmas. This remaining staff had to carry the load - we hire on short notice, put an emphasis on training but there's a lack of commitment from the new recruits. Rough. Noriel (Owner)

The only negatives were the music (trying to be too hip for the decor) and the Reuben sandwich I ordered was waaay too small (it looked like half a serve). I’ll have to order something else next time…

We'll take on board the feedback from the Reuben. Thanks. We hope to see you soon.

Wasn't overly inspired by the lunch menu choices compared o the dinner menu, but the food was OK. Service was a bit slow in relation to seeing if we needed new drinks etc. Background music was a bit loud (unless we were sitting right underneath the speakers). And there was a large table in the other section which was quite loud, which echoed a fair bit in the room. I wouldn't pick it for lunch again, but I would go again for dinner.

Thanks for the feedback - we look forward to hosting you for dinner.

We didn't have room for dessert as the dishes were so fabulous and such value for money. We will be back for cocktails and dessert!

There was a 50th party going on in one half of the restaurant, and it was very very loud. Ruined what should have been a nice relaxing dinner. Disappointed that I wasn’t made aware of the party, I would have moved my booking.

The Fusilli ended up being the winner but it was a close run thing. Just enough room for desert. Thoroughly recommend the cheesecake.

The feedback is welcomed as we bounce back from post-lock down and also under new management - we're opened minded and will consider extending our offering for lunch. Chef and the team are truly appreciative of your feedback. We hope to see you soon.
