    We had a poor experience on a prior visit, but like the ambiance so much thought we would give another try. Nope! Though still great atmosphere, the food came cold on warm plates/stale country potatoes (precooked and warmed?) had to ask for coffee refills, drinks etc. Seems like plenty of staff. A shame because it used to be great.

    We were seated at our reservation time, no one came by to greet us or offer water. We waited 30 min and had to go ask the hostess for help on who our waiter. A waiter came over, had zero apologies to offer, and took our order. He seemed put out that he had to help us. We finally placed an order and almost all of it came out wrong. First, we ordered a $70 bottle of brut rose sparkling wine, and they brought the wrong bottle out and it seemed like an issue for them to provide us the correct one instead. We asked that the correct bottle be served which they conceded to. Our food came out shortly after which two of the four plates were entirely the wrong order. The waiter asked if everything looked okay and before I could say No, he walked away. When he came back, I told him this is not what I ordered and I wanted the correct meal. Not one instance were we offered an apology and we felt like we were putting them out to get what we were paying for. Once the meal was done, we wanted one more drink but did not want to ensure any more bad service from the table so we asked that our tab be moved to the bar and we’d close out there. We had a drink at the bar and asked to speak to the manager. He came over and was defensive. He told us this was the first he was hearing about this and that he cannot move backward so he wasn’t sure what we wanted from him. We said we didn’t want anything but just wanted to provide the feedback because there were so many opportunities to make it right throughout the meal with a simple apology or even any amount of sympathy for a table that sat for 30 min with zero hello or interaction from not one single person in the entire restaurant. He compensated our drinks at the bar (which was a nice gesture) and we gave our tip for the meal to the bartender who was the only professional person we dealt with. I’ve been coming to this restaurant for 10+ years and it’s always been my go to for celebrations, but I am really Sad to say I won’t be coming back.

    My husband and I are frequent travelers to Sacramento and love to find new places to dine. We have had many mediocre meals and have found only a few establishments that warrant returning to. Paragary’s is one of those few restaurants we will return to. The service was welcoming and friendly the moment we stepped through the door. The restaurant itself is beautiful, clean and elegantly decorated. The patio is amazing with the serene water features, lighting, foliage, fireplace and mirror. All the staff were welcoming and genuinely seemed happy to be there and work there. The food was delicious. The papardelle was fabulous. Apparent the pasta was fresh and handmade. My husband had the grilled cod dish which was a special that evening. That was to die for. Melt in your mouth, mouthwatering and exquisite! Paragary’s is without a doubt in the top 3 of our favorite restaurants in Sacramento!

    The mushroom salad and mussels were not nearly as good as usual! Salad was very dry and without flavor. Many mussels were still tightly closed; broth lacked flavor.

    Really good food and excellent service. I ordered the smoked trout appetizer, Caesar salad, Pappardelle, and deconstructed sundae with flourless chocolate cake, caramel, crème fresh and ice cream. Everything was fresh, made in house and each dish was delicious! The server was professional, friendly and took the time to explain and help us with our order. He checked on us regularly and made sure we were happy. Will definitely go back. Recommend highly!

    Loud inside during brunch, difficult to have a conversation. Also very hot, no A/C with doors open, which allowed flies in. Several flies buzzed around us while we ate. Food was just okay, bread a bit dry and eggs overdone.

    Eggs Benedict - whites were runny….gross. Hollandaise not lemony enough. Potatoes were nice and crispy but flavorless - a little salt would have made them perfect. The huevos rancheros were good.

    Our worst dining experience in over ten years as a interracial couple My African-American fiancée and I (I’m white) travel and dine all over California and elsewhere. Although we occasionally have received strange looks or the like, we have never been subjected to discriminatory service at an eating establishment - until last Friday night (Sept. 23) at Paragary’s. The hostess was pleasant and seated us promptly. We had 8pm reservations and the restaurant was moderately busy. Our server’s section was also moderately full. Despite this, it took several minutes for him to even acknowledge us. He eventually brought us water, but only after someone at the table next to us got his attention. This was because he was ignoring both my fiancée’s and my both saying “excuse me” repeatedly. We ordered entrees and soup/salad. After an extended wait, a different server brought our salad and soup. My fiancée’s salad was inedible. It was during this time we noticed our server making his rounds through his section, each time clearly ignoring our table. Again, it took several minutes to finally get his attention to send the salad back. After two other tables in our vicinity who had ordered after us had been served, a different server brought our entrees. Both were barely warm, as if they had been waiting to be served for an extended period of time. Our original server had not been to, nor checked on our table since he brought the water. Meanwhile, the other tables in his section were receiving appropriate service, including the loud, drunk table. Eventually, the manager noticed we were displeased and came to the table to ask if everything was ok. We gave lukewarm responses. Ultimately, my fiancée approached the manager, explained what had happened, and he (without us asking for this) comped our meal. Meanwhile, our server was nearby seemingly unbothered. He still had barely looked at us since we were seated nearly 90 minutes earlier We will never eat here again

    We had a wonderful dinner on the patio. The pizza is superb. We would also recommend the lavender lemon drop… prefect balance of lavender and tart. The only drawback was we had a reservation at 5 pm and the waitress had no issue with telling us we had to be done promptly at 6:30. Regardless, we finished at 6:45 pm and they didn’t hurry us to finish.

    We've eaten at Paragary's for many years. And I've had the rosemary noodle dish regularly. The noodles this time were thicker than in the past & a little undercooked. Still great flavor & a decent sized portion. Just a little doughy. The lavender lemon drop is a hit. Delicious flavor & pretty. Service has definitely improved from the opening right after the pandemic shutdown.

    We are frequent patrons of this restaurant and this visit was a miss. Service was SLOW, took forever to get water, bread. I had squash pizza which was good, corn ravioli was good. The special chilled melon soup was not really chilled and not appetizing, the shrimp fettuccine was a disaster, no flavor, shrimp was over cooked. We were half way through dinner before the Server checked in. Too late to get something different. In all fairness, she did comp that meal, we didn’t ask so that was nice. I always look forward to eating here, service killed it.
