The light and airy interior opens up to the renowned dining patio that features waterfalls, 60 year-old olive trees and a large fireplace.

    Wonderful delightful food the raviolis were light as clouds. We tried the mushroom toast and that was absolutely brilliant. The sound levels were abnormally high due to work group that was near us and that is not the restaurants fault.

    Unfortunately I have to rate this visit as overall disappointing for this establishment. Upon seating, we (table of two), were informed by our server that we were expected to complete our dining experience within 90 minutes. I could perhaps understand this being communicated when I made the reservation, but to be told this upon seating (in front of my guest), is to me, inappropriate and starts the experience off in the wrong fashion. To be fair, I’m sure our server is trained to do this, and she was at all times friendly, and professional. We started by sharing an appetizer of the mushroom toast, which was quite enjoyable. Entrees were hand cut rosemary pappardelle, and tagliatelle alla Bolognese. The pappardelle was very good (I believe this item has been a staple of their menu for years.) However, the Bolognese left some to be desired. It was not up to proper temperature for one, and the sauce was a bit bland. Shared dessert was chocolate nemesis sundae. This was excellent. By now I was checking my watch to see how our time was: 80 minutes (whew!) The final straw for me was after presenting my credit card for the check, rather than returning with a paper statement for me to enter a tip and sign, our server used an electronic device to swipe the card. Now with my server watching over my shoulder, I am expected to enter on the device her tip (20% is conveniently preselected), and electronically sign. Yes I gave her 20%, but I find this highly inappropriate, and uncomfortable to say the least. I have dined at this restaurant a number of times over the past 15 years as a “go-to” for special occasions. In fairness this was my first disappointing experience. Just the same, I have no plans to return.

    Beautiful restaurant! The inside decor was minimal but elevated. The service was great and the food was amazing. We came for brunch and ordered mostly breakfast food. When my kids eat most of their food, it’s a win in my book. I can’t wait to come back during dinner with some friends on a warmer day so that maybe we can enjoy their beautiful patio.

    The food was excellent as per normal, but the kitchen was running a bit slow. It took an hour for our food to arrive. This is one of our favorite restaurants, but sitting for an hour waiting to eat is excessive.

    The food on the NYE menu wasn’t good at all, very disappointing as we normally love Paragary’s. Definitely not worth the value, very over priced. We both left feeling ill to our stomach and this definitely wasn’t from overeating.

    Went on a last minute after Christmas date because cooking and cleanup just sounded unbearable at the time. Paragary’s has been on our “list” to try for a while now and by luck of the draw we ended up going for dinner. The restaurant is beautiful and had a great vibe as soon as we walked up and could see inside the windows. The host/hostess were super pleasant and had us seated immediately, our server was terrific and had great knowledge and recommendations from the menu. We enjoyed everything from the drinks and appetizers all the way through the entre and desert menu. This is now on our other “list” of front runners for dinner. Thank you for a great meal and a better experience

    Good food however 1 group of 4 people ruined the fine dining experience for everyone. Management did nothing to remedy the situation after several patrons brought it to their attention. This group also took constant pictures, complete with flash that added to the unpleasant atmosphere they created that included loud laughing and a constant stream of incessant talking.

    Attractive decor with good service. Convenient location for attending a theatre one block away. The limited dinner menu had four pastas, a fish, chicken, and steak dishes , and pizza to choose from. We each had an uninspired and mundane pasta dish, and shared a Caesar, which after some consideration, I decided was the worst I’ve had in any fine dining establishment. That aside, our waiter was fun loving, and our wines by the glass were exceptional. A good-enough, pre- theatre dining experience.
