Terrible. Overpriced pub grub. – Terrible. Way over priced pub grub. I live across the street and want to like the place but every meal I've had is a big disappointment. Why this place is popular is a total mystery to me and to my neighbors.
Solid! – Live on the uppereast and is definitely a favorite spot of mine. I love eating at their bar. Oysters, sliders and steak are all so good. Brunch is a crazy fun atmosphere.
The best ever! – we bring all our friends here. The food is always perfect as are the drinks.The prices are average. The staff is so kind and we eat there at least 3-4 times a month.
Phenomenal Porterhouse – Was taken here for my birthday. We loved the crab cakes and the aioli sauce. We also got the porterhouse for two and it was amazing. The steak came with four sauces - bearnaise, horseradish, herbs and lime, and red wine reduction but to be honest, it was best with just a little salt and pepper - it didn't need any sauces at all. We got two sides - creamed spinach and whipped potatoes, and the creamed spinach was better.
food no good – i come from china last week on business and i want to try american food.
i came to parlor steakhouse hoping to find good american steak.
steak came bloody, and too much salt. i send it back for it to be cooked longer, and it was still too much salt.
i think, what if i try something else?
so i order the chicken, thinking, who could mess up chicken?
parlor brouight me a chicken with bland sauce and chicken was dry.
the drinks are good though. very tasty.
i would not reccomend parlor steakhouse if you want to waste money.
Staff problems??? – as a local to the upper east side, i wanted to try parlor for the longest time. I always passed this place on the way to work, and it looked decent so i decided to try it.
I was greeted by a man and a young girl. the man appeared to look extremely annoyed. we were seated at the bar and decided to get some drinks. the first thing i noticed was the man behind the hostess stand blatantly yelling at the staff so loud that i could barely hear my own conversation with my boyfriend. it made me feel like things in the restaurant were out of control, so we left after one drink.
we decided to head over to T-Bar instead where our food was outstanding!
D- for parlor
Yummy and Fun – Awesome, awesome, awesome. Went to Parlor with two of my guy friends and had dinner at the bar. First of all they have dollar oysters late night, so we housed about two dozens of those and then the boys wanted to get the dry aged strip for two and I got the petit filet. My steak was juicy and delicious, cooked a perfect rare. We got some sides of mac and cheese and creamed spinach and the fried onions all which were indulgent and good. The scene at the bar was pretty happening, a lot of people in their late twenties, early thirties good looking, a bit of an older crowd but they cleared out right as we got there. The staff was friendly and funny and over all pretty good looking, which is always nice. I would definitely love to come back for a full on three course meal or maybe just to watch the game and booze at the bar. They had a great cocktail list, original and diverse but their white wine selection (by the glass) was pretty limited. if you have a great raw bar have some good whites ot pair it with! Looking forward to going back.
NO THANK YOU – I eat out a lot but this place is really underwhelming. Food is ok, but service lacks pretty much everything. Managers either hover or are nowhere to be seen. I had a rib eye that was good but all in all my boyfriend and I felt that there was too much food for 2 people and also, the prices are so crazy that it's hard to justify not eating everything. Nothing to write home about.
NOT WORTH YOUR TRIP! – Wow.....what a total disappointment!!! We've been to Parlor once previously on a special occasion and were totally and thoroughly impressed. Naturally, we expected a similar experience.....but unfortunately, that was not to be. On a Saturday evening at 9PM, we'd expect the service and food to be tip top. Instead, the quality of porterhouse steak we ordered was sub-standard and clearly not cooked to our requested medium rare. To make matters worse, we we disappointed in the moderately disinterested service. Having a screaming undisciplined child at a table in the backround in conjunction with a loud roud bunch of guys did not add anything positive to our experience. Sadly, it is no wonder the restaurant was half-empty during a prime time Saturday evening.
Put it at the top of the list – I've been to Parlor several times and I think it needs to be put at the top of the list for the Upper East Side. Great service, friendly staff, sleek layout and of course excellent food. I know that I'll be taken good care of when I go whether I'm with a large party or for an intimate dinner. I would highly recommend it.
