Paragon, neighborhood find
I loved the relaxed atmosphere where jeans and a tee shirt are equally comfortable as a dress and heels. The food is reasonably priced and these are pretty good eats. Portions are a bit small if you are in hungry hungry mode, add a salad or dessert. Service is fair,but don't expect your needs to be anticipated, if you want anything it can be tricky to flag someone down. Overall a pretty good deal.

Good but wanted more
This restaurant is good, but I left wanting more. More selection on the menu and more ambiance. The brunch selection was a rather slim choosing of 8 or 9 menu items and had no breakfast children's menu at all (though they made my daughter a huge pancake. The ambiance is more of a saloon than a full on restaurant, their bar area is so large it dominates the room and really sets the tone that this is a bar first and restaurant second. I would go back, but more likely when I am in a fun party type mood and not in the mood for an intimate mothers day meal.

Went for the music....
My partner and I are always looking for places that have food and live music. There are MANY here in Seattle, so we hadn't tried Paragon yet. It was pretty good. The food was tasty, though the choices were limited for anyone with dietary issues, just a heads up. The music was a guy doing covers of music from the 70's-90's. He was fun. The down side was that we got there at 8, he was supposed to come on at 9 but it was closer to 10 before he started, so the night got late, fast.
I would overall recommend Paragon, but it isn't AMAZING, just good.

Love the neighborhood feel
From the moment you walk in you are greeted by a smiling hostess, The menu is great and the martinis are just the way I like them!
If you have to have a quick lunch they are great with getting us served and out in a timely manner!
Love the fact that they can open up the huge front windows when the weather is nice and you can enjoy the outdoors without sitting on the 'sidewalk'

They handled a party of 10
They handled a party of 10 without a problem and we could hear each other talk. The food was very good, as always, and the scallops were superb.

Southern Dude will return
I am a southern dude who thoroughly enjoyed a gourmet version of the foods he grew up on.
