    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.

    Good food all round from Pizza to meatballs to salad to BRUSSEL SPROUTS . Place is kinda drafty and chilling and with hard wooden banquet and hard uncomfortable chairs. Add cushioning or replace the chairs. Great locations and easy proximity to BART / Fox Theater.

    Terrific they have a wood-fired oven. The pizza was excellent but they should do more with that oven with other roasted items. Not sure what inspired a salami pizza with honey, but it was revolting. We had it remade without the honey. The Arancini had unmelted cheese cubes inside, which indicated to us that they were made in advance and warmed up prior to serving. The cavernous interior needs softening. It felt drafty and flat. Big trees or lush plants would help, as would some variation in colors. Service was warm and hospitable.

    This restaurant feels like your average neighborhood restaurant with upscale pricing. There were several missteps with our drinks and the server seemed inexperienced. Unfortunately the food was average and not that tasty although the wood fired pizza that one of our group had was good. Perhaps you have to know what to order. Also a bit noisy for a nice dining experience. Seems like a good spot for happy hour.

    Food is great. Ambiance is loud and service is not good. It took 40 minutes for our small lunch order for two to come up. People who arrived well after us got their food long before we did. Our server didn't give us an update or comment on the long wait. I will go back to this place because it's convenient to my work and the food is good, but I hope they improve service!

    Overall it's a decent restaurant. Nothing stood out to me. The service was average, which was a little disappointing considering it was a 5:15 PM reservation and the place was pretty dead. The bartender did come over a couple times to help chip in while the server took her sweet time so kudos to the bartender, who was an incredibly nice guy and seemed more on the ball. Asked the server for what was the best thing on the menu as I live in Napa so the likelihood of me being back in the area for dinner is very slim and she recommended the baked chicken. It was actually pretty good and served with Pearled Couscous, Carrots, and Asparagus. My only gripe is if this is the best they have I would probably skip it. My daughters pasta was perfect, but it's hard to mess up a butter Parmesan sauce. The fresh lemonade was refreshing. I did really like the decor. Overall it's a decent restaurant just nothing spectacular. The Burrata was good and I could easily see going just for apps and cocktails.

    Went for a business lunch. Service was efficient and attentive. Food was tasty with small opportunities for tweaks (brussels a little too oily, salad slightly overdressed). Noise level would probably be ok for a table of 4, but we were 6 and it was so loud that it was nearly impossible to converse with someone two seats down the table. Would return for a well rounded salad with perfectly cooked protein.

    Parlour was pretty good. We shared a couple of dishes, the Brussels sprouts and quattro formaggi pizza and also had a cocktail each. Nothing was too expensive and it tasted great, especially the brussels. Service was a little hit and miss - we were brought a drink we didn't order, that we declined, but it then still appeared on our check. The table we were given was also right by the door which was kept partially open and so I was quite cold. Ask for a table away from the door. Overall, this is a nice option in downtown Oakland, especially if you're going to a Fox show.

    We were ten mins late due to traffic but they were friendly and and seated us immediately. We had placed our drink and food orders shortly after seating and had appetizer coming out a little longer than typical but initially ok. The Brussels sprouts were awesome. Was catching up with good friend so we got lost in conversation for a bit then realized it had been some time and was hard to get any eye contact with servers or anyone. We would have understood if they were short staffed but a simple explanation would have gone long way. Our first entree a pizza didn’t arrive until hour and half after our arrival. Occasionally the server would breeze by to quickly ask if we were OK but kept moving so she didn’t stay long enough for us to hear our response or give us any updates. We were attending concert at the Fox so was finally able to flag down a kind new server and asked to cancel our pasta order and get our check. He was fast and apologetic. Food was tasty but if this is the norm not sure I’d ever return. Noticed several other parties doing the same as we did. Was hoping for better experience

    Either the kitchen was slow or there weren’t enough servers, or both. We had to flag someone down to order drinks even. And it wasn’t crazy busy. We ordered bread as a starter and it took forever, and we kept asking after it, with nobody explaining to us that it was made to order. The service remained slow throughout. The food was delicious. So was the gin with handmade tonic.
