We ordered two fish and chip dinners based on seeing other orders. Ours came over cooked cold fries and warm coleslaw. Probably sat under heat lamp. Young lady serving pluncked plates down and wasn't very interested in our trying to tell her they looked over done. Our server Sharon immediately saw the poor quality and removed them to have them...

Hell gen1and2 Many thanks for taking the time to provide feedback of your time spent with us. Of course, we never like to hear that a guest was not happy with the selection they have made.

Went with colleagues for a work lunch. Waited an hour for our food, and one colleague never got out food. Paid $21.47 for a half-hearted chicken club on regular bread and a very small portion of salad. Service was terrible and paying was another 30min wait. Would have got better service at McDonalds for a fraction of the price. Won't... More

We had a lovely appetizer of seafood in a pesto cream sauce. The mussels in a red curry sauce were also quite good.The risotto was only ordinary, though.

Food - especially the Prime Rib and Pavlova were great. Service was TERRIBLE! We were a group of 12 friends who had shared the same weekend in June for over 30 years. This restaurant used to be one of our favourites. However, despite making a reservation for the group over a month ahead - when we arrived they had no... More

Now that the Parlour Inn has had a couple of years under its belt as a member of the Vintage Hotels family, it seemed a good time to stop by its restaurant for lunch and see how the transformation is going.

We have been to this place three times because of its proximity to one of the festival theaters, but no more. After the most recent dinner, we agreed that in each visit kitchen service was very slow, food was just fair (not bad, just very bland), and given the number of much, much better restaurants in a two-block walk, we...

Went for dinner at the Parlour Inn. The restaurant was busy as people going to the late shows at 8 were trying to get their meal and get to the show. Service was a little sporadic as we had gone to a matinee and I think they knew that so they were spending more time with those that had to... More
