We will definitely make this one of our faves and be regulars!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!We absolutely loved this dining venue! The owner is involved with his restaurant and the passion of his vision is experienced from start to finish throughout your dining experience. Try the scallops, they are amazing! We will be back!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerOutstanding food, cooked perfectly to order. I had a filet medium rare that actually came up medium rare! Wine list is extensive with many moderately priced options. If you buy a bottle and take the majority of it home, you may just be charged the retail price. Service was attentive and very helpful with suggestions. Would definitely go back next time I have something to celebrate!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AM2nd time at this restaurant2nd time at this restaurant and we were equally as delighted.

on our list when we go to Carlsbad......4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMCarlsbad GetawayPicked Paon as our dinner spot on a quick one night getaway. To say we were impressed is an understatement. From the greeting at the door and confirmation of our Open Table reservation thru our discussions over menu items and suitable wines we were surprised by the attention to detail shown. The wine list is outstanding and the food was super. The pheasant was perfectly cooked and the short ribs were so tender the meat seemed to melt in your mouth. We will definetly eat at Paon the next time we are in Carlsbad, CA.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSome of the best preparedSome of the best prepared food I've had in a long time.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent.

The food was phenomenal!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGood menu selection, knowledgableGood menu selection, knowledgable waiter, of food prep and wine. Little noisy for a slow evening. It is also very noisy if full, in the past. We like it. As a casual alternative the bar offers ambiance and JK is a great bartender. They offer a good bar menu that should satisfy anyone.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWent with a group of fourWent with a group of four and we sat outside on the patio. Was perfect with the heaters on. We shared appetizers and then got our own entrees. Everyone raved about how delicious everything was. The waiters were attentive and kept our glasses full.
Was very expensive, so save this place for a special occasion. Our dinner companions said that they enjoy the lunch menu and people watching during the day, so we will have to go back and check it out during the day.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMJust a wonderful restaurantJust a wonderful restaurant with good food, good service, and pleasant environment along with a good wine list.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience, but bad greeting.Great experience, but my friend, a Buddhist monk, and I were greeted very coldly by a thin, unsmiling neighbor, who acted hostile to us. I found a really nice guy, Brian, who did a terrific job, but the initial greeting really left a bad taste in our mouths.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPaon is fabulousThe food at Paon is so good!
