    Server promised no bacon in braised Kale and there were chunks of bacon in it. Friend's steak was brought out rare and he asked for medium +. Other dishes in our party were good. Service was slow with drinks. Ice cream was melted before it hit the table. Overall not the quality I remembered it to be.

    Went there with my wife for dinner Saturday night. I don't think they were hitting on all cylinders that night. Repeatedly asked waitstaff to provide utensils for the next meal. I ordered the special Wahoo which was overdone and dry. My wife's meal also lacked taste and seasoning. I have heard good things about the restaurant and we wanted something low key on a rainy night. We might give it another try at some point but there are many better options out there.

    Love going to Paul's Restaurant!! It is a bit of a drive for us but a real treat and worth the drive. Love seeing Chef Paul there. I have never been to a restaurant where they listen to what you want and go out of their way to try and accommodate you. We always look forward to seeing Rick at the restaurant and I do not believe he knows how kind it is when he says "Welcome Home". I like a wide variety of foods and Chef Paul always seems to surprise us with something unexpected. Awesome place and atmosphere cannot say enough good things. I do not have a negative word to say about this restaurant

    I have dined at Paul's many times, and the food and service are consistently good. The downstairs area can get a little noisy at times, so we asked for a table upstairs on the mezzanine, and we had the place all to ourselves, making conversation easy. It can get a bit warm up there, since it's screened-in open-air, but the overhead fans kept it comfortable enough. A most enjoyable evening.

    I think this restaurant needs to change its menu and update the choices as well as the interior. There should be more healthy choices as well on the menu. The food tends to be a bit heavy.

    I always like Paul's because it is consistent, the drinks are good, wonderful signature drinks, the food is very tasty - my husband had the sushi appetizer which was very good- - ambiance is great for the over 40 crowd- It is not a scene, the people dress appropriately, there are no piercings, no tatoos and no one wears clothes that look like they have been sprayed on their bodies.

    My family and I really enjoyed the special Easter buffet. The salad table was great especially love the jicama slaw, shrimp and marinated veggies. The roasted lamb was delicious...and fried chicken tasty. Always love deviled eggs on Easter and the pea purre was a great touch! Strawberry shortcake was perfect ending. Always love sitting on the verand!

    I took my family to Paul's Restaurant, located in the Peachtree Hills neighborhood of Atlanta. I would describe it as an intimate restaurant with a great bar, as well as delicious food. They had a buffet which offered a variety of foods that should suit anyone's taste(I'm pescatarian/vegetarian). It was fresh and nicely presented, and it was easy to navigate the various tables with different courses and types of food. I highly recommend going there for the Easter Brunch next year!

    We had 730 reservations and were shocked at how old the average age seemed to be. Not sure if that was typical since its been years since I have been to Pauls. Overall, people are very nice and food is great... just hope average age diner is not 70 :) We were upstairs which was much better, otherwise it would have been slightly awkward for mid 30's and mid 60's mix

    We stopped by for dinner this Thursday. The restaurant was filled with the ADAC crowd but we got a quiet, private table in the back corner and had a lovely evening with great food. The appetizer portion fried lobster with Asian pear slaw is a wonderful small meal but I had to have their fabulous kale salad. The menu has something for everyone and it is so good. Can't wait for warmer weather to sit on the upper porch.

    I have enjoyed Paul's wonderful food for many years now. Even when he was Pano and Paul's. I was so excited to discover that he'd opened a restaurant so that I could continue to eat his famous foods. As soon as I found it, my husband had to take me to it. So now we frequent Paul's and have never been disappointed.

    Lovely neighborhood setting in Peachtree Hills area of Buckhead. One of our top 5 favorite restaurants and it was my sister's birthday. We had Paul's Roll as our appetizer and the fish special as the entree. A nice bottle of wine and everything was absolutely delicious! Great services and they even let us have the window seat we asked for when we made our reservation. I'm never disappointed at Paul's. Will visit again soon.

    This was my second Tuesday in a row to attend their half off sushi night and what a deal it is! Paul's definitely has the best sushi in Peachtree Hills and is a great neighborhood restaurant. Don't be scared by their international menu; everything is good, whether you choose to have their sushi selections or their normal menu. If their soft shell crab is a special, get it; it is truly the best soft shelled crab ever!

    We went here for Valentine's day, so understandably the restaurant was slammed. It took a while to get our drink orders and appetizer order in. The lighting in the restaurant was so dim, that I had to hold the menu up to the tea-light to read it. We ordered a sashimi appetizer. It took about 15-20 minutes for the app to come out which is a bit long. While the food tasted good, we couldn't really SEE our plate. My main course was decent, but the fish in my fiancee's course was overcooked, which is a damn shame because it was sea bass. Dessert was also good, but it took about 20 minutes for our entree plates to be cleared and our dessert order to be taken. I had to flag down the waitress to get our check. Our 3 course meal took 2.5 hours.

    Booked for romantic valentine dinner. Nothing about this place is romantic. Very noisey and ambience is disappointing. Toughest filet mignon in my life and I've eaten a ot of them! Waitress tried to stiff us for (3) glasses of wine each instead of (2) glasses each. This was no mistake and she even told us she was normally a bartender. Have no reason to return and wouldn't recommend to others.
