Reviews for The Parish

As we saw in John Steinbeck’s novella, The Pearl, people can get really consumed with the bivalve blossom. What it fails to mention is the laser focus others can have on the oysters that create them. The crew that created North Portland's EaT: An Oyster Bar, is in the latter group. Their latest project, the newly opened, Parish, is the sort of Oyster bar made for those with a religious devotion to Oysters. Expect a detailed discussion on the relative merits of a dozen oyster types as well as elegant, even delicate, renditions Cajun and Creole cuisine, with a lavish raw bar as the focal point. Lovely Southern cocktails are another highlight.

I went here a few weeks ago for a champagne and oyster event. Their oysters and appetizers are super fresh and delicious. The place is very snazzy as well!


Sharing New Orlean's penchant for celebration, The Parish hosts Mardi Gras celebrations and the annual Oyster Fest. During this time shoot oysters brought in from local farms, paired with a selection of white wines and beers in compostable cups.

Great oysters for a buck can be hard to come by, but at this casual Cajun/Creole joint in the bustliest part of the Pearl, you can get platters of them during the daily happy hour (3-6pm). Hallelujah.

From the team behind EaT: An Oyster Bar in North Portland, the Parish is the westside's go-to destination for the freshest dine-in and take-out oyster feasts in town.

With dozens of varietals of fresh oysters it's tempting to skip the entree's all together. If you manage to reign in your oyster obsession and save room for something more, the shrimp etouffee had the perfect balance between shrimp, creole seasonings and rice. The interior has a casual elegance and a beautiful wood bar, perfect for shooters followed by a beer with friends.

I had high hopes for this restaurant, as I enjoy Southern food. Went for breakfast right at opening. Out of Beignet's (which for a "New Orlean's restaurant") is unacceptable. I enjoyed the Quail, but it was literally 6 bites for full price. My companions did not think highly of their meals. Cocktails were excellent in quality, but at $11 per drink, were arguably the most expensive in the city. Server was polite and attentive, but $97 later, all three of us left starving and feeling takin' advantage of (and we're not a price-sensitive group). Would not go back.

Bottom line; there is better Southern food in this city that is less expensive. I just wish it wasn't so far away.
