Paragon is my go to place
Paragon is my go to place for client lunches and an after work beer. The space is great and I enjoy the decor and the new light fixtures. I'll be back there this evening.

Welcome break for the lunch crowd
I've worked by Paragon for 8 years now and always love dropping in for their lunch menu and their happy hour menu is nifty too. Lunch menu is simple, but classic, inventive and good sized portions. Nothing boring there. Good wine list too. The service can be iffy depending on who it is. Some times I get excellent service and some days its a grave yard service. All the male waiters sport beards...so you get a good dose of eye candy too! Definitely a go to for a good work lunch or a fun happy hour.

I LIKE TO STOP THERE WITH
I LIKE TO STOP THERE WITH CLIENTS BEFORE A BASEBALL GAME BECAUSE THE ATMOSPHERE IS
PLEASANT AND ENERGETIC ENOUGH TO KEEP YOU EXCITED FOR THE START OF THE REST OF THE EVENINGS FESTIVITIES. THE SERVICE FROM BEGINNING TO END IS TOP NOTCH AND VERY FRIENDLY
EVERYTIME I GO THERE.THE BAR ALWAYS MAKES AN EXCELLENT DRINK, AND THEY HAVE A GREAT BEER SELECTION. THE FOOD WAS THOUGHTFULLY PREPARED AS USUAL.
I RECOMEND THIS RESTAURANT HIGHLY.

Great for a meal before the game!
We met up with some friends from out of town before the Giants game on Sunday. Got a table outside. It was great to have a place to meet our friends, have a good meal and catch up before we headed to AT&T. Paragon is a fun spot and not as crowded and crazy as the spots directly across from the ballpark. Definitely on our list for the future!

As always, a good meal with a smile
I have lunch a Paragon a few times a month. Great for business meetings. The noise level is low enough to talk business but loud enough that you don't feel like the tables around you are listening to any sensitive information. I enjoy the location and the service. The menu has good choices. I am about half way through it :)

Great Spot to go before the Game!
This is one of my favorite places to go for dinner and drinks before going to the ball game. The food is good with some healthy choices on the menu in addition to the usual comfort food. I love the energy and the lively ambiance that happens as the crowd builds before the game. Definitely a place to consider on your way to the Giants game.

Lunch before the Game
Started off great but as it got busier, our server really struggled. After we got our main course it was like we were forgotten. We were not asked if we wanted another drink/refills and I had to flag her down to get our check so we could get out of there. It's always a little disappointing especially when you were enjoying yourself up to that point.

Excellent Pre-game Choice
We were seated quickly, service and meal were excellent, and all out in plenty of time for the ballgame. Mushroom cigars, burgers, blackened salmon, and bread pudding were the favorites from menu. Everything served was enjoyed. We waddled out full and happy and smiling.

Excellent Casual Place
Really nice place for casual get togethers. Quick service and excellent food.

glad to return. great ambiance, food. no hassle with change of reservation time.

Great restaurant, food was tasty, service was spot on. Only blip was that they were out of 2 wines printed on the menu.
We found a decent alternative.

Hard to Believe!
It was hard to believe that our waitress could attend to our needs in a timely manner given the size of the crowd. It was pre Giants baseball night and the place was packed. Yet she got our first round of drinks to us quickly and our second drink was just as timely. She was very good. And with all the plates that were pouring out of the kitchen, our burgers were cooked perfectly to our request. The only dish that needed some help was the pulled pork sandwich. It was a little on the dry side, but once again, our server immediately brought us extra BBQ sauce which moistened the sandwich. Great experience.

Good spot for pre-game beer
Good spot for pre-game beer and burger. Nothing extraordinary but good beer selections and well-prpared standards.

Great place before a Giants game
The food was good (although it was a Sunday brunch menu that caught me offguard). The service was great and the location was perfect. I'd definitely go back...

Great spot before a Giants game
Booked a table for 8 for a pre-Giants game lunch. Service was fantastic. Food was great. Large portions (enough to even share). Would definitely come back.

This restaurant was really
This restaurant was really good! The food was excellent. However since it is a block from AT&T park, so it gets extremely crowded around game times and thus the service goes down. It's understandable, when they go from one table in a section to every single one full, but it took nearly 20 minutes for us to flag down and get the check, and additional time for them to take it and return my card. BUT the food was so good, we'll just have to be more aware of when Giants games are!

Post Game Dining
Went here after the game for some dinner when my Mom was in town. Good food and great service. Casual dining, perfect for post Game dining!

Great for a birthday!
Paragon is a family favorite for amazing burgers & amazing vegetarian items. I just took a great friend there for her birthday, we had a wonderful time!

Plesant to the eye
We were @ the double hitter. Had a reservation and showed up early, hostes was plesant and got us right in. Kerry our waitress was excellent, very helpful and plesant. Would recommend the Paragon, and plan on visiting again.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went her before a concert, on a game night, so service was understandably slow (inattentive). Food was really tasty, as were the cocktails.
7/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
My partner and I had dinner here a few nights ago. Fun pre Giants game atmosphere. We split two apps and an entree. The ribs were the one low point. A little dry and the sauce was ok but couldn't combat the dryness. The Mac and cheese was to die for. That was the highlight but we enjoyed the summer risotto with what tasted like fresh corn in it. I definitely recommend this place.

We love coming here before
We love coming here before tht Giants Games. Its a great crowd and the waiters are wonderful. We loved the shrimp/prawn appetizer. And the wine/vodka drink with berries was fantastic!!

Great game day dinner
The food was great, with OK service. Perfect restraunt for dinner on a game day. Staff was very friendly. I would highly recommend this restraunt.

Pre-Giants Game Treat
Just a great, solid dinner American cuisine dinner. Good salads, although too large - easy to share. The half chicken and the pot roast were delicious!
Fun atmosphere and great service before attending the sf giants game. Go!

Always a great place to have
Always a great place to have lunch before seeing the Giants playing a day game! Their Cobb salad is excellent.

We had lunch here with friends
We had lunch here with friends before a daytime Giants game. Small menu with interesting choices. Drink and beer menu was not small. Great service and atmosphere. Absolutely recommend this place.

Service was excellent, appetizer
Service was excellent, appetizer was great (Mushroom Cigars!), Grilled skirt steak excellent. However Chimchurri sauce was just okay. To spicy and not enough of an herb flavor. Would definitely go back. Noise level extremely high and lots of tables crammed together. Dont' plan on private conversation unless you have a booth.

I've been a friend of the Paragon Ownership for many years and have gone their often including my 40th birthday, always good service and food is always solid. My seafood stew was excellent !!!

Very nice lunch
Went with my father before a weekday SF Giants game. Service was very good, meals delivered quickly. Portions were small. By the 6th inning I was already hungry.

Good food and great service
The title mostly says it. The food was beyond reproach, and the service was excellent and fun. Atmosphere was pleasant, preparation was timely, overall a great experience.

Good meal before a game
This was recommended by a friend as a good place for dinner before a Giants game. I picked the place for four of us before the game. I was not disappointed. Good beer selection (none of us ordered wine so I cant comment on that). The Calamari appetizer was quite good. The jalapenos included were a nice touch. I ordered the pork chop which was delicious. One of my cohorts ordered the skirt steak and raved about it. I will definitely come back.

We have made Paragon our pre-game ritual when going to a San Francisco Giants game. The food is much better than in the ballpark and the service has been great the two times we have gone. The menu is simple so the cooks execute the food in a consistently good manner. There is enough variety for groups to handle fish to beef and the ambiance is great. The wine list also has enough breadth to provide good compliments to the food and does not seem overpriced. I will go again.

Great Place before the game
We visited paragon before a Giants game. It's only 1 block from the ballpark and the light rail. With a reservation we were seated immediately and the service was friendly, attentive but not obtrusive. Food came out quickly considering the full house. We enjoyed the meal and the pre game ambiance. Thanks to everyone there who made the experience delightful!
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great lunch
I had a favorite, the grilled cheese and tomato soup. I'd forgotten how yummy it was. The server was very attentive. The dining room is a little loud. I kept having to have my friend repeat herself. My friend had the risotto, which she found delicious. I will definitely go back here for some fresh food selections.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great meal
I brought my Kiwi friends to dinner at Paragon to give them a good experience and a great meal during the America's cup finals. We all enjoyed our meal and the great service. They will be back with more Kiwi's in the coming months. Thank you,
Paragon and Staff for the kind hospitality.

Great dinner before a Giants game
We love to have dinner here before a Giants game. It is so much better than ballpark food. The service is speedy as they know you want to get to the game. Highly recommend reservations.

Cocktails and dinner before Giants game. Excellent food and service with high energy and loud sports bar.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best restaurants in San Francisco in my mind. Will return soon again. Service is very kind
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
I live across the street, so location is ideal to me. We dined outside on the patio on a warm night, and the heat lamps were actually unnecessary. One of my favorite mac & cheeses- smooth and creamy cheese sauce.
10/3/2013 5:00:00 PM
Paragon has always been consistent with good food, good atmosphere, and good vibe
