Lamb was disappointing...to much fat and hardly any meat!
Always enjoy my time at Parallel. Their constantly evolving menu keeps things fresh and tasty! Their salads are always top notch, and the Arias are a must try! Overall, ambiance and service were on point too - will definitely be coming back!
Parallel NEVER disappoints!!
Delicious as usual
Love the food, the ambience and the amazing staff. We'll be back!
Very nice casual place, good healthy food. We will come back.
Everything here is so delicious and fresh. The service is excellent and we can't wait to return!
This restaurant has a funky relaxed vibe and the food is amazing! So much selection for a vegetarian. The hummus, falafels and tabouleh salad are outstanding!
Music is too loud but great food
Service and meal were on point. Everything was quickly brought out of the kitchen, and our food was to die for. Great value and plates for price point. Can't wait to come back.
Lovely service, warm atmosphere, and great food, especially for those who want to share plates and try everything. Highly recommend the Arais (if you're a carnivore) and the sublime Mushroom Mix – make sure you order extra pitas if you're getting dips – they're delicious. A great casual night of noshing and sipping, will definitely be back. Thanks Parallel!
The Ozery family are the most caring and generous hosts and food creators. I have been to Parallel three times and plan on returning with new guests and my Ryerson class in November. Attentive service, delicious, fresh and healthy food, as always. What a pleasure to experience the evolution of this great family business!
I have been dined in this restaurant for several times since it was opened. It never disappointed me every time. The food was just as authentic and delicious each time. The atmosphere is vibrant and relaxing depending on the day. My only comment is they don’t have a variety of deserts choices. If they can work on that would be a five stars experience!
Food was great.
Much too noisy for our friend with a hearing problem.
The food was excellent, and the service was good, but the space is noisy and conversation was difficult.
We had a parallel salad, a fattoush salad, a Black Sabbath, and split orders of hummus and falafel. All were quite good
Falafel were amazing, thought the hummus surprisingly bland, even with the meat ragu. Fattoush salad is a hipster interpretation of a fattoush salad, not a real fattoush salad. Surprisingly underwhelmed.
Always excellent service and excellent food!!
Service & food were excellent. I've been to Parallel once before, in the winter and I found it was rather cramped for space. With the patio open this time of year it was a much better experience as you didn't feel like you were sitting on top of the table next to you.
We had the Parallel salad, falafel, truffle hummus and the grilled seabass special. It was all delicious.
We'll be back!
Food was spectacular, a little noisy but overall excellent.
Very creative recipes with high quality and super fresh ingredients. Very friendly service!
Food was excellent - shared their daily special watermelon salad and I ordered their Parallel Salad (I added grilled tofu). Both were really good. My friend ordered the lamb & beef kabobs for her main. My only complaint was that although we said we would start with the special, my salad came out too so I was more than halfway done before my friend even got her main.
Great food, great location, really hype ambience! The portion sizes of the dishes were great. Lots of vegan options available. I would definitely recommend this place.
Very nice meal accompanied by very poor service. Wait staff all seemed new to the industry. Our drink order was taken, then the meal, then we were ignored for the rest of the time we were there. I had to get up to find a waiter for a second drink and again to get the bill. The food was quite nice though so could be worthwhile only if you’re very patient.
Falafels were amazing- service was kind and attentive without being in your space.
Only complaint is that it is quite loud, and with the high ceilings- it just seemed really busy with lots going on- hard to focus on conversations.
Braised beef lamb was amazing. Loved the pita. Service was excellent and looking forward to going again.
Everything was great.
Cleanliness was under par with expectations. Toilet was filthy. Our plates were greasy and the laminated menu was covered in food splotches.
Great food, good atmosphere. I would definitely recommend to others and dine here again.
Going back this Sunday! The food here is off the charts delicious.
Great food and service! Brunch on the patio was spectacular!
Food is awesome.
The kale salad was wilted - tired. It did not seem fresh. I’ve had it here before and was much fresher. Should always be fresh.
A fantastic food experience, completely unpretentious. Everything was tasty and plentiful. Service was great. 10/10. My fave restaurant in TO.
Always a good time. Server was a hoot. Thanks db
Best food ever. I’ve never had falafel like this, it is life changing! Very vegetarian friendly
Took my partner out for a nice brunch for his birthday. The service is excellent, they gave us the option to sit on the patio + the food is delicious. Their falafels are so airy and fluffy! How do they do this sorcery? :)
Food is well prepared but quite pricey for the amount of food you get. Highlight was their in-house hot sauce spice mixture. The space indoors is a large concrete room so it is very reverberant and hard to hear others when there loud house music playing in the space.
Great food, and excellent service, but it's too loud. The high walls intensify the crowd noise and electronic music. Maybe I'm too old...Again, the food was great, and the was perfect.
