Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant was a pleasant experience. Our waiter was terrific, we were originally asked if we wanted to sit in the front area and I liked the open feeling of this space but was seated near the kitchen which was busy and a bit noisy so we moved a few tables over. The food was alright. I had enchiladas and my daughter had a salad (she is vegan) because that was basically the only choice for her. I was celebrating a birthday and found it to be a bit crowded (tables were a bit close) and a bit noisy for the special occasion atmosphere. Overall it was what I expected. Great location in the center of Pleasure Island of Downtown Disney and fun atmosphere - felt a bit like a sports bar but the World Cup was on so ... of course it was."

  • "They had great music and we liked that we could sit out on the patio for fireworks. We ordered three burgers well done and all three came about medium to medium rare. My husband refused to send anything back because they might "do something" to our food. (He will not send anything back any place, not just here.) So that was very disappointing. The fries were not hot and tasted like they had sat for a few minutes before our food was brought out. I am still giving the food a "Good" but would not order beef here unless it is in a taco or something. I thought they were priced a little high, $14.95 for a cup of fries and a burger. However, for a place in Downtown Disney you expect things to be a little higher."

  • "For a family with 4 children, this restaurant wasn't quite up to snuff. Expensive kids meals that turned out to be more a la carte. On the flip side, the atmosphere was quite nice and the service we received was very good. I understand it has to be expensive because of location, but close to $10 for a kids meal with only a small amount of food seems out of place. I would come back when my family is a bit older to enjoy the outdoor music and the views of Downtown Disney"

  • "We had the fish tacos, not too bad but inconsistent. We had a very nice waitress come by and welcome us and take our drink orders right away. 5 minutes later a different waitress came by and welcomed us and asked for our drink orders, when we explained we had already been helped she said "oh, don't mind her, she's new and this isn't her table". This new waitress had a poor attitude, didn't re-appear until it was time to give us our check, then left our check sitting on the table for 15 minutes with our card waiting to be paid. We had to take our check to the front desk and had to ask to be cashed out. The desk staff gave us dirty looks and we received one hollow apology. Pass on this one, there are many better options in the area."

  • "They couldn't find our reservation so we had to wait 20 minutes with the walk in crowd. Then our food was cold and undercooked. This is not worth coming back to unless we are just interested in having a drink on their patio."

  • "Appetizers were good which left me hoping. Dinner came and it was good also but I was expecting more. Service was slow (1 water in 30 minutes for 4 people) and spotty (bread plates left during dessert) but he was very nice and helpful. It's Disney on a Friday night so they were slammed with 50 people waiting in line so can't be too critical I guess. Overall a good but not great meal."

  • "We made a last minute reservation via your iPad app that saved us tons of time on vacation in Orlando. We got there, they sat us right down. Although the tables were a little crowded we had a good time and our server was outstanding. Service was VERY Fast, he was very attentive, and memorized every item of a special health related order. Very impressive!"

  • "We've been here in 2010 and 2012, and loved it. Wow, it's gone DOWNhill since then. Our food was mediocre at best. Service was terrible. Took about 20 minutes to get our orders taken. After we finished eating, we asked for our bill. And asked for our bill. Finally, after 30 minutes, demanded our check from the host/maitre'd. We finally got our bill 40 MINUTES after we first asked for it! No apologies, nothing. You'd think they would have wanted to turn the table, if nothing else. We were there on a Friday evening. Never again."

  • "Maybe it was the construction of Disney downtown. Maybe it was just an off night. It took forever to get the our drinks and then the drinks were not very good. Bad margaritas, but the ILTs were ok. There was nothing that stood out. We had better meals at Buffalo Wild wings and TGIFridays."

  • "My family and I ate at Paradiso 37 in Downtown Disney while on vacation. We were fortunate enough to get a table outside on the deck, so were able to people watch which we love! They had a dj and some live music which lended perfectly to the atmosphere. The food was also fantastic - very tasty! Would defintely go again next time we are in Orlando!"

  • "Went here with a group of six. The margaritas were quite tasty. We ordered three appetizers to split which were solid, especially the queso dip. All of our main courses, however, were just ok if not subpar. No one came close to finishing their meal. Two people had fish tacos mixing fried and grilled and said they were very bland. My food was a mixture of meats called "from the land" which came out cold and also bland. One person had a burger that he said was ok so maybe that is the way to go. That being said, the service was very good with very helpful staff. Good place to get a margarita and appetizer for a quick stop while out and about. Entres could have been bad luck for us but wouldn't recommend."

  • "When I set up a reservation, with plenty of time in advance, I expect the restaurant to accommodate my special requests. Once we arrived at Paradiso 37 they didn't acknowledge my request of a table by the water and instead seated us in the middle of a crowded room away from any window. I had to go back and point out my request to which they responded there would be a 35 min wait, after some more back-and-forth they finally seated us by the water, which was beautiful. From there, everything was a lot better. Drinks took a while to come out but it was during their busy time. The food was great and everyone enjoyed their dishes. We had their fish tacos and our friend had the appetizer sampler, very fresh. Great live band and atmosphere!"

  • "Unless your idea of dining involves paying inflated prices for average food, not talking to your dinner companions, and not being able to hear the waiter, go someplace else. I went there with my teenagers. I had a reservation for 6:30 pm. There was a 30 minute wait for a table inside so we were offered a table on the patio. We jumped at the chance in the warm evening. Big mistake. There was a DJ. A cacophony of too loud thumping music. Even my grown kids were so annoyed that they couldn't wait to finish eating and leave. The DJ should not start playing that early. He really belongs in a dance bar, not a restaurant, and preferably later in the evening. The food itself was adequate, and the table service was acceptable. Nothing special there."

  • "Bar drinks never came out. We finally got our drinks after our apps came out AND only after asking the waitress to bring our drinks which I could see from my table sitting at the service bar for about 15 minutes. The apps weren't bad cheese dip and corn dogs. The entrees were not hot when they came out. Tasty skirt steak but was just luke warm at best. Not even half way through our entrees, our waitress appeared holding a dessert menu and asked if we wanted any dessert. Check took forever to come after asking for it. Busboy was just about ready to clear the clear while I was signing the check. Sat upstairs close by the only point of sale system in the entire place which meant a crowd of servers always gathered by us waiting."

  • "The queues were justified as the place was lively, had great food and great drinks. The cocktails were great, got you in the mood, service was great - made you feel very much at home, food was varied and tasty. Options for kids and vegetarians was very good, everyone really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend to others - but definitely need to book as it gets very busy!"

  • "Very busy. Outside seating was a good experience. Menu selection is good. But I think it was too busy that they forget the small details. My husband ordered chicken tortilla salad. The tortilla was missing. Took a close look at what he ordered. It has a little corn and queso and a lot of greens. It just looked like an ordinary grilled chicken salad. Our server was good It's not her fault because she did not serve it.Maybe they think that the place was too busy and we are stupid enough to notice it.Manager was apologetic. Normally we do not ask for anything in return nut I felt like the kitchen staff took us for granted and ruin my husband's experience. Manager took it off our bill I agreed.We just left the money to our server."

  • "We went to this restaurant twice in a week. The first time we had a nice quiet table outside. The food was excellent and the service really good. We told the waiter that we weren't in a rush and he delivered each course with a reasonable gap inbetween. On our second visit I asked for a table outside near the entertainment. They honoured my request with what must have been the best table in the house. After a moment though I noticed the Mosquitos! Loads of them as you are right on the waterfront and it was a very hot day. As I am allergic to mozzie bites I sheepishly went back inside and ask if they could reseat us inside. No problem! even though they were very busy I was not made to feel a trouble. Just take your mozzie spray and enjoy."

  • "We were seated right away with our reservation. The scene, servers, and drinks were good but he food was not. We orders 4 separate meals and they all showed up less than 10 minutes later. It was obvious by the temperature and taste they were prepared well ahead of time, just like a cruise ship. For the price I would rather go to House of Blues or walk to Buffalo Wild Wings. Will never eat hear again."

  • "Not sure how OpenTable can support a restaurant that does not honor a timed reservation. Arrived at 7:57 for an 8:00 reservation. There were 50 to 60 people in line waiting to get in. I said to my wife that we were lucky to have a reservation as this must be a popular restaurant. I went to the hostess stand and was told that all of these people also had reservations and to get in line. Never again!!!"

  • "*Had a reservation, but still had to wait a while for a table. Server was EXTREMELY friendly, but quite overwhelmed and hard to catch until the middle of our meal when tables were finally emptying. Ordered a platter, skirt steak was wonderful! But then we found not one, not two, but THREE inch long pieces of bamboo skewer in one of the flautas. Food got sent back, manager came up and explained that she didn't have anything like that in her kitchen so she didn't know where it came from. Others in our party had ordered burgers. The burgers had bamboo skewers holding them together. I had to borrow one of their skewers to send back with the server to show the doubting manager that she did in fact have the exact inedible item I found in my food."

  • "My group of 6 people (3 adults and 3 kids) all really enjoyed the food. The skirt steak was outstanding. Servings were filling. Drink lists were good. Dessert was late getting to us as their computer system had issues and needed to be fixed so no orders could be placed until it was back up and running. Once it was fixed all was fine. The only dissapointment was the wait time to be seated. We had made reservations and still had to wait at least 30 minutes to get in. Why make reservations if you still have to wait in line? Other than that it was a great place to eat and I would recommend to anyone."
