100%improvement over the last time...6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEasy to write the reviewIt is easy to write because the food quality and excellent service speak for themselves. We come here often because it is consistent in quality and menu appeal. Every guest is well treated.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMFA Graduation CelebrationWe could not have chosen a better restaurant to celebrate our MFA graduations from SJSU with our children and our mother. The food was outstanding, the service was excellent, making our evening one of the most memorable. I have not eaten at Paolo's since they moved to their new location and I was a little afraid that they had changed enough that I would not be happy, but I was pleasantly surprised that the experience was even better.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Food and service wereThe Food and service were excellent. A wonderful place for dinner5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMService should be seen, not heardThis was our second visit to Paolo's, and the food has been excellent both times. Two of our party had their prix fixe with hanger steak and that was very good. My osso bucco was perfectly prepared this time and last. The location is extremely convenient for before or after theater dining and the quiet, elegant atmosphere is nice for an intimate dinner. Parking is convenient and free with validation. On our first visit, the service was excellent. This visit, however, they were extremely busy with the pre-theater crowd, and dinner took quite a while--not an issue on a relaxed Mother's Day dinner--but the waitress seemed to feel compelled to continuously come by and tell us that she was taking good care of us...very unprofessional.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent. ServiceFood was excellent. Service was a little slow. We went there before a show and told the waiter when we arrived but he seemed to be working on his own time.
Really nice place5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Dining at its Best!Incredible good! Reminds me of old fine dining restaurant with an up-to-date menu.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful evening!We were in a rush to get to a show, and the owner and waiter were spectacular -- we made it to the show with time to spare. Each dish was cooked to perfection, the wine list is top notch and we found the ambience sophisticated, quiet and 'calming', particularly after a stressful jam-up of traffic from SF. Great evening!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious, but serviceFood was delicious, but service could have been better. Waiter wasn't very knowledgable about dishes or pairings. Dessert was a miss, but the gnocchi and the meat and cheese platter were outstanding.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPaolo's is a short walk awayPaolo's is a short walk away from the SJ Center of Performing Arts. This makes it a no brainer if you are attending a show. There is a special preset show menu option on nights of shows. The food was great with friendly service that is not trying to rush you out the door. There is a full bar & a nice wine list. I would go back again.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGood spot if youare goingGood spot if youare going to SJ Performing Arts. Food is just mediocre.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMikey & Susie's AdmirationWe thank the recommendation by San Jose Civic about dining at Paolo's as we enjoyed our meal's along with the courteous and
