I ordered the TV dinner, and it was served on a plastic lunch tray. Okay, I get the joke, but it was the most unpleasant experience ever. If the food was good, it immediately messed up the flavors in my mouth. It was salmon croquette, which wasn't fresh, so before I was finished eating my stomach started hurting. The cucumber vinaigrette tasted awful, a funky aftertaste from again, old vinaigrette that's been sitting on the fridge. My mother got the blackened new york strip, with so much red pepper if really took away from enjoying the entire dish. I was so disappointed, it was my mum's bday, and I really wanted it to be special The food was so mediocre, I will not be back. Bill was pretty steep for the quality we got. Good points: service was good, they also brought out a birthday desert.

Pros: Beautiful decor, service was good, cute basement market

Cons: Didn't like the food at all

I enjoy ordering breakfast on the weekends, but sometimes the potatoes are stale and vinegary... the biscuits can be hard and the bacon was sparse... But when its good, its great and delicious... just need to be more consistent, but ill still order... i have faith!!!

Looking for another Brunch/Breakfast option, you must go and checkout Parish foods and goods, it??s a quaint, cute, New Orleans styled, restaurant. Upstairs is cozy, beautifully decorated, downstairs, a market/deli and outdoor seating. My dining guest and I decided to avoid the long lines at some of our favorite breakfast spots(no names mentioned) and try something brand new.(well, new to us) Parish is tucked away in my favorite and former neighborhood, Inman Park. We decided on brunch, I had ??Bella??s Omelette? stuffed with mushrooms, spinach, sharp cheddar, on the side?ummm?. ummm, good, grits(I was pleasantly surprised, I don??t usually eat grits, these were buttery, creamy, delicious) my dining guest agreed. My dining guest, feasted on ??Eggs Boudreaux?, Louisiana crab cake, egg, andouille sausage, spiked creole sauce, with a side of pontalba hash(potatoes), which we both thought was not very tasty. All guests receive complimentary beignets, now those were so good, we ate too many.(LOL) Be sure to checkout the market filled with Serenbe Farms goodies.(Serenbe Farms is a local farm and community that focuses on going green and organic farming, living) Bring your laptop with you there??s free wi-fi, sit outdoors, relax, chill, grab a bite to eat.
Call me, I??ll meet you there! (reviewed, Oct 4, 09)

Just why can people get away with this slow service and poor quality at such high prices in this economy?

I will not go back. Guess they don't care based on all of the poor reviews and yet the place is still busy. Sad that Atlanta is such a superficial spot. I am from Boston and Ny , where food rules, not pretense.

Please find me some great local places with good food, reasonable prices and service.Not interested in the take a number or the high end, something fun in the middle to go to a few times a week.

Like many other reviewers, we were sorely disappointed with the service. The food was great, except our dinner arrived a bit on the cool side (not fresh, piping hot like you'd expect). We suspect the food sat waiting for the servers to bring them to the table. Lighting was poor, and our server was rude. The chef did come apologize for the cold food, and offered us desert on the house. But when we got our bill, we had been charged for the deserts. We are not likely to go back - despite the great market and food.

I've often had slow or aloof service at Parish, and though the food is acceptable, I've really gone for the ambiance and the cocktails. I won't be returning soon though--this past time the service was downright unprofessional. I was asked to pay for something in the market that broke--I felt it wasn't my fault, because they had them displayed in a precarious way, and I said I didn't want to pay. It was only a $6 item, but it was the principle of the matter. Went outside to wait for some friends, and when we returned to the counter to order, the server was complaining loudly about us to her fellow staff, right out in the open. She had her back to us, and when she turned around I confronted her about it. She claimed she wasn't complaining, just discussing, but that was obviously not true.

It may be that she disagreed with my stance, but she didn't say anything about it at the time. I said I wouldn't pay for it, and she just went ahead and rung us up with the added $6. Even if she wanted to complain, she surely should have saved it for the back room. It was rude and offensive, but also stupid.

I can't say I ate at Parish regularly before--I've been there maybe 9 or 10 times since they opened. But I'll surely never step foot there again. I wonder if the loss in business was worth the $6?

The market-style atmosphere was fun and comforting. I ordered a vegetable plate that was an interesting mix of vegetables but they still worked very well together. I am vegetarian and wished there would have been a couple more options but was pleased with the food I received. The service was great as well. Our server was very friendly and accommodating without frequent interference. Overall, I was satisfied with my experience and pleased with the food, but not completely blown away.

I visited Parish with my wife and both of us had excellent entrees. I had the Mississippi Stuffed Catfish and it was fantastic. Our service was less than desirable. It seems the wait staff is serving various tables throughout the large indoor/outdoor restaurant instead of having areas. That led to us getting attention every once in a while. They definitely need to zone off their service so areas aren't neglected for long durations. I would go back for the food but if the service was poor again I'm not sure....

I enjoyed my latest experience sunning and people watching on the side patio while taking advantage of the raw bar and sipping cava. Seems that Parish has a new executive chef and he's making waves in the kitchen. His pan seared Mahi over a spring veggie panzanella was so fresh and delicious.

I am not one to generally write a restaurant review. However, I am a seasoned traveler and experienced some of the best dishes in the world which of course includes New Orleans.

Overall the restaurant has a pleasant interior but is so poorly lit that it is difficult to read the wine list and totally make out your food. Our waitress was a bit on the rude side and only introduced herself at least 30 minutes into the meal.

I knew it was trouble when on a Thursday evening there were only three other tables. We started our meal with the recommendation of the Bar-b-q shrimp. Nice presentation however the actual dish was extremely lack luster. The dish had no real kick of spices and lacked any zest of citrus to bring it all together.

For our main courses we had the braised short rib and the seared cod. I was somewhat shocked with the lack of true New Orleans style dishes. The sort rib was average however the portion seemed small and the meat could of been much more tender. The Cod was nicely seared but seamed a little on the tired side with a small hint of a fishy smell.

I don't know if this is another one of these restaurants where a chief comes in and creates the menu and splits or not. But save your time, money, and experience for someplace worth going.

I read a lot of raves about the atmosphere, but i was unimpressed. I am only 29 ye the lighting was so dim i could not even read the wine list. I am probably glad i couldnt read to much of the list as selection was limited and both bottles and glasses were way overpriced.

Service was average, but definitely nothing special. The water that was served was luke warm and very definitely right out of the tap. I normally am completely fine with tap water, but at least put some ice in it to cool make it cold!. The menu overall was limited, and once the food arrived was just ok. The gumbo appetizer was amazing though. If it was a full meal i would consider coming back.

Definitely not a place we will be going back to.

They do not have handicap access to the more formal upstairs dining area, so disabled people have to eat downstairs in the market. I think this is pretty lame for a new restaurant - in a building they restored themselves.

My boyfriend and I went to Parish last night and we had a great time. We had reservations and were seated immediately upon entering the restaurant. Our server was excellent and kept our drinks filled and allowed us the time to enjoy one course before taking our order for the next. The food was also extremely delicious. We started out with two appetizers, the sausage cheesecake and a sausage sampler platter. The cheesecake was pretty unmemorable, not bad just not great, but the the sausage platter was so tasty. My boyfriend had the ribeye which was huge and it came with great mac and cheese pancakes and really fresh tasting green beans. I had the andouille crusted catfish and it was scrumptious. Then for dessert we split a special Valentine's Day chocolate orange mousse with caramel ice cream and both were delicious. Portions were generous and prices weren't any higher than any other midtown/Inman park restaurant. Plus the decor was really interesting and we had a window seat which was nice because the whole restaurant is like a studio space with vaulted windows. I didn't have any problem with the noise level and the place was lit up more than adequately. We will definitely be recommending Parish to our friends looking for a new place to check out.

It looks lovely inside, dark and forboding. You literally need a flashlight to see anything. There are sculptures and it's made to look grubbily chic. That all fine and dandy, but the food is average at best and overpriced. I can't remember one thing that any of us in our party of 4 ordered. The New Orleansish fare doesn't have any of the zest of the Big Easy. To top it off, it is the noisiest restaurant I've ever experienced. In summation, don't bother going to eat. Maybe you should just sit at the bar and down a few if your date isn't going well. Stick to the downstairs market where they have awesome croissants.

LOVE the dining space. Nice little lunch menu, nothing was earth shattering but is was a fine sandwich/chips lunch. The market ith local and organic options was the best. the perfect spot for a spring/fall day lunch outing. Stick to something simple and you'll be fine! Beware of the crowd and the really poor lunch line configuration or you'll get stuck trying to order for 30 minutes!

Heard good things and was impressed by the building and the staff seemed friendly, if not a little slow.
Food just didn't seem like New Orleans to me. Sort of bland with small servings on very big plates.
The downstairs is a neat coffee shop, bakery and sandwich shop that I would try for breakfast or lunch. Really nice place to hang out and check up on the world with your computer and some coffee or dessert. I will give it another try for breakfast or lunch.

he ever tasted what was passed off as his namesake dish, Oysters Bienville - what a waste of delicious Blue Points!! Agreed, the raw bar is passable (when the correct order was presented) but that is it. Normally, I wouldn't bother to write a review for a restaurant so obviously doomed, but potential diners need to be warned. On possibly the coldest night of the year, we were seated at a table by the door. Fortunately, there were so few customers that it wasn't opened often during our unfortunate meal. A specialty cocktail was undrinkable due to excess nutmeg and the pork potpie was a mushy smokey/salty gag-fest! The server was suitably attentive and won points for comping the Bienville and the pie. An unusually long valet wait (on a dead night) capped the evening.

Had lunch here today and enjoyed it thoroughly; this place is the definition of "charming."

First of all, when did this part of town get so cool? I realize I need to venture out of Midtown more often - what a great vibe Inman Park has.

The decor: from the large communal table to the kitchy items in the store to the weathered leather club chairs to the painted floor, "God is in the details" never rang truer. Lovely. A breeze moves through from the open patio and you feel as if this place has been here for years. We also went upstairs to check out the dining room - really nicely done; quirky, but not overly so.

The food: a friend and I shared the reuben and turkey sandwiches; the turkey was OK with big chunks of avocado, but the reuben was absolutely cravable! Just the right amount of everything with melty cheese and perfectly seasoned corned beef - I will definitely be back for that. Oh, and how could I forget - delicious, big, crisp, vinegary pickles as big as, well, a cucumber - yummy!

I've been to both the downstairs market and upstairs restaurant at Parish now, and saying this place is both overpriced and underwhelming is about as nice as I can be. It's a beautiful space, the servers are friendly (I didn't have any of the service problems some of the other reviewers experienced), but....food from the Kroger deli is about as good. On my visit to the market, my two companions and I had sandwiches, gumbo and cookies--all three were ok (with the exception of the cookies, which were totally tasteless), but A: not worth the price, and B: no better than a sandwich and cup of soup you could make at home. Then my husband and I went for brunch (he SWEARS the place got great reviews. What's up with that, reviewers??), and the experience was similar. His benedict had lunch meat on it, basically, and was so tiny in proportion to the $13 price, I couldn't believe it. My omlette was the color of smoker's phlegm. Seriously - grey-brown lung evilness. Awful. It was full of canned artichoke hearts. Yea. The potatoes were cold and hard. The beignets were ok, but nothing to write home about. The fruit and coffee were great...that's all I got.

For the love of all that is holy, how are restaurants this overpriced that serve food made from such obviously poor-quality ingredients allowed to exist? I'm no food snob, I promise you, but I feel swindled. Like they're laughing in the kitchen as they spoon slop out giant Cysco cans and swipe my credit card to the tune of $40+. Geesh.

We went for the first time on a Saturday for my birthday, we were a group of 8 people. We had 8:30 reservations, but didn't get sat until 9:15--understandable especially because we had requested the patio, on a beautiful Saturday evening. Our server was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and fun (she made up for service being a little on the slow side).
Food was good. Most of us were very pleased with dinner--some highlights were the farm fresh vegetable plate, the sunflower salad, and the catfish. And the chocolate silk pie was the perfect finish.
I can't wait to go back for lunch in the downstairs market--it's adorable and the menu looks great.

So the hubby and I went on a Sunday for brunch and I was not impressed. After being seated it took the waitress 15-20 minutes to take our order. I had to complain before the show even got started! The beignets were just ok. Publix could probably make better ones. I then had the gumbo, never again.....i had a lot of chicken and not one piece of shrimp. The okra and tomatoes were sliced in huge chunks instead of being dinely diced. My crab, spinach and artichoke omelette with hollendaise sauce was good, although the breakfast potatoes were too salty and tasted like the came out of the frozen goods section of Publix.

The beignets were just ok. Publix could probably make better ones. I then had the gumbo, never again.....i had a lot of chicken and not one piece of shrimp. The okra and tomatoes were sliced in huge chunks instead of being dinely diced. My crab, spinach and artichoke omelette with hollendaise sauce was good, although the breakfast potatoes were too salty and tasted like the came out of the frozen goods section of Publix.

Pros: Valet guys were nice

Cons: slow service, pricey mediocre food

.

This place has great potential. Someone, please save it from itself

How can it be so slow? I tried it three times, dumb me, not again.

I can walk to it and thought that was worth the extra tries, but now I must walk further away.

The decor is wonderful, but the food is mediocre and service below sub level of service

Get over yourselves, you are not so cool. That went out in the 80's. Good food, good service anyday over this apparent noncaring owner, that allows such a rip off.

I also tried a few others from this same owner and I have a suggestion, the owners of Strip, Shout, Parish, Trois, should just join together and create a new company, called meat market rip off

Just market yourselves as you are, a great place for drinks, idle bar food and chatting, not an actual restaurant with qualtiy food and service

My husband and I - somewhat new to Atlanta and already in a Kevin Rathbun rut (why go anywhere else?)- decided to branch out and try Parish last weekend. We were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere of the place. It is a design masterpiece with all of the textures and fun touches - someone below mentioned the menu on the paper bag. We sat at the bar for the first hour there (no reservations, so we had to wait) and had several great drinks - the house version of a hurricane and a Scarlett O'Hara. Both were refreshing and bright. Nice mixed crowd with great energy. You might draw conclusions about the food based on the fact that here we are five sentences into the review and it is only getting its first mention. Nothing outstanding. In the future, we'll probably go back to our usual Kevin Rathbun Steak and then come to Parish for after dinner drinks at the bar.

Pros: Great drinks, fun crowd, high energy atmosphere

Cons: Very loud, tables close together, so so food

My wife and I went here with another couple two weeks ago. We are all in our early thirties and decided to try it out. It was the worst dining experience we've had in years. Our reservation was for 8:30pm, we were sat at 9:15pm. We did not receive any attention for over 10mins and did not receive our drinks until 9:45pm. The place was very crowded and loud, understandable for a new hot spot but I literally had to ask our server to repeat the specials three times, and I was sitting closest to her. I ordered a bottle of wine for the table. Our first round of wine glasses had 1/2 inch of water in them, our second round had lipstick on two of the glasses, so it took three tries. By the time our food arrived it was 10:30pm and it was not that great considering the prices and atmosphere. To compensate for our difficult time, the server was kind enough to provide desserts on the house - this was an insult and i typically do not eat desert at 11:30pm anyway. Do yourself a favor and choose another restaurant.

Atlanta is growing and the best way you can tell is that great restaurants are popping up everywhere. Everyone has been to Sotto Sotto and possibly Friti. Grape is newer but I'll bet you've heard of that too. Now we have Parish. It's in a great building which used to be the office of the steel mill on this site. By a miracle the building was saved and completely redone. Now we have Parish. I met friends there a few months ago and we meant to have a drink and go, but we stayed late and have returned nearly every week since. That night we sampled the appetizers like the house cured charcuterie plate and the chicken and andouille gumbo. I especially enjoyed the oysters which were cleaned and free as requested. The bar is stocked with an excellent tasty IPA and others got wine, but I like my beer.
On other nights we have enjoyed the coffee bar down stairs and the various pastries and croissants there.
My son (almost 4) likes to get chips and juice there which is fine with me because then I can enjoy adult food and beverages.
The staff are the best you can find, motivated and attentive. They get better every time I go. It's common for me to run into friends there and met new acquaintances too.
I strongly recommend Parish. If you can go on Wednesday you will feel like Friday or Saturday at most other places. It's very popular and for good reasons.
Enjoy.

I recently visited PARISH for brunch and it was amazing. We all enjoyed the delicious food and the friendly service. It?s a very charming and relaxed atmosphere.

Had brunch there on Saturday, and our service was a little odd. We ordered Pimm's Cup, which is supposed to be garnished with cucumber (really makes the drink stand out), and when he brought our drinks, there was no cucumber. I politely inquired about them, and our server indicated that the reason we didn't have the proper garnish on our cocktail was because it was really an "evening cocktail", and the bar wasn't prepared with the garnish at 1:00. What? Seriously? When he brought the garnish, he said it was "compliments of the house". I kid you not. Then, when I inquired about the oysters he was knowledgeable about what kind were being served, so I ordered 1/2 dozen. Time went by, no oysters, so when I asked about the status, he gave his standard response of the staff not being prepared because they really don't serve them at brunch, and thanked us for being patient. I finally asked our waiter to skip the oysters, and he indicated that "they" were working on them, and would be out shortly. I asked him why they even offered the oysters (and cocktail) at brunch and his response was that the oysters and the cocktail were listed on the same (paper wine bag) menu as the wine. Our meal came, which was good, the plates were cleared and then the oysters were delivered AFTER our entree plates were cleared. Now, shouldn't he have told us those things weren't available on Saturdays at 1:00, rather than make us wait and get more than a little teed off....Getting on to the food, though, it was good, and the shop and take away counter downstairs is cute enough to make me go back, but not so much on the dining room. Bought bread pudding and white chocolate key lime tart(s) to go, and both were very good. Maybe if they re-train our waiter? Sorry, but I can't recommend the dining room for brunch; perhaps cocktails and then downstairs for lunch/brunch and take away desserts.

Cons: Odd and unforgiveable service

We had brunch upstairs and it was average at best. The atmosphere upstairs is great and they have a great patio. But the food is not worth returning for. We did returned again but went to the market downstairs for sandwiches. The egg salad and the grilled brie are great and worth the trip. However, the muffaletta was served cold, which is not in keeping with how they are typically served. Disappointing for a restaurant specializing New Orleans cuisine. Muffaletta was good otherwise. The atmosphere in the market is eclectic and casual (although seating is limited) and the patio is nice for small parties. They should have stuck with the market concept for the entire restaurant as it is what is worth returning for!

great breakfast or take out
dinner, too expensive, too trendy
parking, a JOKE.. Love the take out, but slightly confusing. In or out, up or down, when and where do you enter, park and is the upstairs closed in the day??? Love the coffee AND THE PATIO, BUT IS IT OPEN IN THE DAY, THE UPSTAIRS PATIO?

I'd heard mixed things about this place. After going, I agree with the sour reviews. Food was ok, but the service was awful. And what is up with the bread? It's the size of a pop tart, yet is supposed to feed four people?

Probably the worst restaurant experience we have had in Atlanta. The service was terribly slow. We asked for bread, and when it eventually came, it was a very small baguette - really a large roll - for the four of us - not really enough for four - and do you really want four people grabbing and tearing into a piece of bread? Raw oysters, while shucked, were not cut - when they eventually came. We ordered champagne and had to ask the waitress for something to keep the bottle cold. At one point a manager came out and told us our original waiter had gotten sick and would not be continuing! - of course, we had never seen the original waiter in the first place - but who wants to hear that?!! The food was decent but not great. I also did not like the menu presentation. Being from New Orleans, I can appreciate the "ambiance" of having the menu on the blackboard, but you are left with no real description of the dish and what comes with it. With so many great restaurants in Atlanta, I would never return to this one (even if they all were bad). I expect so much more from Bob Amick.

I went to Parish the other night for dinner and was prepared for a great meal... needless to say i was severly let down. It was a Wednesday night, but knowing the place was new, i made a reservation. When we arrived, we were told it would be a few minutes., so we grabbed a drink, and then sat directly behind the hostess. 30 minutes later I had to find the hostess to get an update. I didn't receive so much as an apology, only the hostess telling me to wait, so she could come up for air.. another 20 minutes later (nearly an hour after our reservation), we were finally seated, still without a single apology for the wait. We then waited a good 15 minutes to even see a waiter and get water. The food was okay. The gumbo is excellent, but the crawfish cheesecake is bland as bland can be. When our food came, we ordered another round of drinks which took so long to arrive, our food had been cleared by the time they arrived.. i do not see myself returning to parish anytime soon.

I tried out Parish Food and Goods about a week ago, on a Sunday. Suffice it to say, I wish I could give 0 stars. First, we were greeted by a sour faced hostess. The restaurant was empty and she wanted to seat us right next to (I mean, within 1 ft. distance) the only other patrons in attendance. Whoever has been there knows that the tables are set a little too close for comfort. No way of having a private conversation with your dining partner. Anyway, we asked for another table and she looked at us in mild irritation. First, let me just say - it is horribly overpriced. I guessed from those prices that it would taste like ambrosia for the gods. It didn't. I ordered the vegetable plate and before ordering I asked the waitress what was in it. When the plate came, two of the items were missing. I called the waitress - she looked at me as if I'd sprouted horns, then said she'd get me the other two veggies. The "creamed corn" was swimming in cream and lacked much...corn. What I had tasted pretty much mediocre at best. If you like unripe tomatoes with a lot of vinegar, you'd love the ratatouille. My husband's food - nothing much to cry home about either. We left half hungry still. But the icing came when my debit card number was stolen the day after. Someone went on a shopping spree in IL and spent $525. I realized that Parish's payment processor is also in IL. I called them to explain, so that it doesn't happen to someone else. I wanted to alert them. I wasn't sure if the source was them - but I needed them to be aware in case they had other customers experience the same thing. They said the manager would call back. He didn't. Basically, they didn't care enough to get back to me. After the bad food I knew I wouldn't be back, but this last incident makes Parish restaurant worse than bad in my book. If you ever go there, I suggest you take beaucoup cash and not use a card (our meal, consisting of a veggie plate, a seafood appetizer and two sweet teas totaled just under $60).

I dined at Parish with 4 of my friends. The atmosphere and the service was great. The food was ...awful, and that is putting it nice. Everything was bland and way overpriced, kind of like the other 2 Consentrics restaurants I have been to. I think this is a good restaurant for the average person; however, if your a bit of a foodie (i attended culinary school and am in the business) then this place is perfect for maybe one drink. The building is definitely worth checking out. Like the other 2 Consentrics it has a very cheap feel for the money you will spend-- inexpensive chairs and tables, flimsy silver, cheap stemware and bev. glasses, etc.

I joined several friends last night for dinner at Parish Foods and Goods, and to sum it up we will not be dining there again. The evening began when we were greeted by a hostess who was clearly not concerned with providing a hospitable environment for the customers. When we checked in for our reservation, she rudely commented that, "its going to be at least another 30 minutes, and you'll just have to wait." I guess I didn't realize when I made the reservation I didn't realize that it was a privilege for us to eat there, not the other way around. At the bar, when someone in my party was finally able to get to the front, the bartender snapped, "are you ready? You've had least 5 minutes to make your decision." I will say that we were seated prior to the 30 minute wait that was estimated, but the wait staff was less than stellar. The restaurant is extremely noisy, so you can't hear a word that the waiter is saying when he explains various options on the menu. They completely forgot to bring out one of the salads that we ordered, and the food can be described at best average.
The space is very chic, and the downstairs market is worth the trip. My suggestion - skip the entire upstairs disaster and just get a sandwich and a pastry downstairs.

Although the atmosphere is great tbut the food may be among the worst in the city in this price range. Even though we had reservations it took 2 hours to be seated...for what? All 4 of us at the table had different dishes and we were all equally disappointed. The tuna was overcooked the short ribs were Betty Crockeresq the snapper was even worse. Maybe the owner should hire a new chef or at the very least go on the internet and find some good recipes. If you are looking only for a good atmosphere you'll enjoy this place but don't go for the food!!!!

We got to the bar and thought we were in for a great experience because the cocktails were delicious but the food was terrible. We asked the hostess about the special and she gave us the usual reply that "everything on the menu is special so we don't have any'. Turns out they did but we couldn't hear what it was because the music was so loud it was deafening. It also seems that have an over abundance of onions so they serve them with everything. My wife got the fish and the vegetable it came with was onions....hmmm...not really the vegetable I had in mind. A couple we dined with got the pork feast which was about 1/3 fat and also came with a plate of pickled vegetables, lettuce, sauces, and more onions! First time I've ever heard of anyone wrapping pork in lettuce....rolls please! It also came with a side of a dozen osyters which was great expect for the fact that there was no place to put all the food. The raw oysters were delicious but we ordered the oysters rockerfeller as an app and we really didn't care for them fried. The menu seemed to have way too much pork and other 2nd tier meats and seafood versus what you may find in other places. It felt like the chef couldn't make up his/her mind on which way to go with the menu. Very random selections.

We live in Inman Park, and have eaten at the Parish market (downstairs) a couple of times. First was for lunch. He had the muffaletta. The half was larger than a human head and was filled with delicious meats and salad. The bread could have been fresher. I had the egg salad. It could have had more flavor. The bread was so light compared to the egg salad, that it kept falling apart. We've also been downstairs for brunch. My husband got an omelette, which was very good. I got the "breakfast wrap". I asked for a description of it before ordering. I was told it was a filo wrap filled with eggs, prosciutto, and cheese. I replied "yum" and ordered it. However, when it came out, it was the size of a spring roll. Definitely not enough for breakfast, and it was priced like the other full breakfasts, so I had no idea how tiny it would be. It wasn't even large enough to be considered an appetizer. It should have at least come with some fruit or a salad. I was very disappointed. Plus, the filo was a little too dry. I would like to give the upstairs a try, but after these mediocre experiences and the not so great reviews upstairs has received, I'm not sure I'm brave enough.

I asked for a description of it before ordering. I was told it was a filo wrap filled with eggs, prosciutto, and cheese. I replied "yum" and ordered it. However, when it came out, it was the size of a spring roll. Definitely not enough for breakfast, and it was priced like the other full breakfasts, so I had no idea how tiny it would be. It wasn't even large enough to be considered an appetizer. It should have at least come with some fruit or a salad. I was very disappointed. Plus, the filo was a little too dry. I would like to give the upstairs a try, but after these mediocre experiences and the not so great reviews upstairs has received, I'm not sure I'm brave enough.

Pros: location, ambience

Cons: maybe they're still having opening pangs??

I absolutely love the decor, cocktail list and fun and friendly staff. The food is ok not great...but that's not the point at any of the concentrics restaurants. Where do I buy some stocks. Bob Amick is a genius...seriously!

I live across the street and have been several times for cocktails. I was very excited to finally sit down and have dinner last evening.Disappointing is an understatement. We had a drink at the bar while we waited for our table. They brought us a bottle of water when we sat down (b/w 4 people this gives everyone a little over 1/2 a glass) then it was close to an hour before we got our second drinks, water refills (including tap) and we hadn't even placed our orders yet!!!! I finally went up to the bar and got some water- it was ridiculous.We finally ordered - they don't have a menu - they just name the items on a board. Great except I like to know what an item is, how it's prepared, etc. - what exactly is the Parish pork feast for 2? There was about to be a mutiny at my table after I asked my server to explain a couple of entrees to me so I got the tuna. Had no idea how it was cooked (well done) or what it came with (under cooked hash browns). Definitely could have made this at home much better myself - not that I really ate anything - by the time the meal finally came I really wasn't hungry anymore. I tasted the other dinners at my table - short ribs, redfish - wasn't impressed with anything. Blackened redfish is supposed to actually be blackened. Peel and eat shrimp is supposed to have some spice and probably would have tasted a lot better if it would have been served as an appetizer and not with the meal. I lived in New Orleans for a number of years - they have a LONG way to go.I love the other restaurants in this family, the decor, the building, almost everything about the place is absolutely wonderful- the food and the service were a huge disappointment. I really can't remember the last time I had service this bad anywhere. Parish has the potential to be a true gem - I hope they can pull it together.

We're always looking for the next great Brunch spot, on a patio, now that warm weather has returned. Well, we found it, on N.Highland in Inman Park, in a delightful restored 1890's home. This place lays on the charm, and the lines are already forming. That's O.K., we just waited at the bar for our table, and had a "Red-Fairy" to drink. And yes we are still laughing at that one. It's a Bloody Mary made wtih Absinthe(instead of Vodka), and mixed with a Creole Bloody Mary Mix. Tasty, if fact, we all had a couple. The menu is creative Cajun/Creole, with a few twists. But I did want Brunch, and had a Crab Sardou Omelette-crab,artichoke, spinach and Hoilandase. And my date had the Open-Faced Shrimp Burger w/Poached Eggs. What our entrees lacked, it was easily fixed by a few dashes of Tabasco. And we did split a Georgia Peach and Bread Pudding. Service was good, still new, but the Red-Fairy
helped us along! Will be back to try the raw bar, and a Po'Boy!

Pros: Good New Orleans Brunch & Bloody's!

Cons: Parking Can Be Tight!

parish is just down the street from us, and we finally stopped in on sunday night. since the weather was so nice, there was a wait for the patio. no problem--- we belly'd up at the bar. the boyfriend had a beer, and i got a pimm's cup... a very tasty cocktail garnished with a thick cucumber slice. i also tried their dark & stormy (was that the name?) and although it was good, i liked pimm's cup better. the space is absolutely BEAUTIFUL, rustic, warm, very cool. since my mom is coming into town this weekend, my bf commented that we should take her here. after we were seated on the patio and tried the food, however, we changed our minds. we got the crispy oysters rockafeller (crispy, but with no real flavor other than the bacon garnish, and it even had two sauces on the plate, although i think one was sour cream); i got the beef short rib (glorified crockpot roast, underseasoned) with some sort of potato (really just glorified french fries) and tomato chutney (which tasted like stewed tomatoes); and the bf got the crispy duck confit (again, underseasoned). the best part of the meal we took home--- dessert, and between the chocolate silk pie and peach bread pudding, the first was the best. service was friendly but a bit slow. i have to keep telling myself that they just opened, and i think we will still go back for another try (maybe at brunch this time), but if all three dishes we tried lacked basic salt and pepper (and flavor for that matter) it doesnt look well for parish in my book. give it a try.... who knows. its so close and beautiful and has such potential--- hopefully they will live up to it in the end. we're taking mom somewhere else this weekend.

Cons: ...not so great to eat at
