    The food was excellent. I ordered off the menu. I asked if I could have a grilled chicken breast and had cilantro rice, black beans, and tostones to go with it. It was a very good meal and the portions were perfect. My friend complained the food was not hot enough. It was true but I eat fast so it was fine with me.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 9/1/2013
    We made reservations several weeks in advance and were seated promptly. We dined outside, and the view and atmosphere was great. Beware that the overhang did not cover all of the patio; this would have been a real problem had we had weather. I had a giant margarita which was fair, and my guest had a couple mixed drinks that were well made. We had yummy chips and salsa for an appetizer. My guest opted for the Mahi sliders as a main course, and she really liked them. I had the "From the Land" platter. The food tasted pretty good, but was cold. The service was super slow, and I didn't want to wait for the food to be heated. Drinks took 10+ minutes to arrive; dinner another 25 min. Overall this made for an OK experience.

    The fritter appetizer we had was very good. I had blacken fish tacos that I had to add hot sauce to just to get some favor. My wife had blacken maui-maui sliders and she also said it didn't have a lot of favor. Our server AJ was excellent and we had a nice talk about his hometown of New Orleans. We went the next evening just to have drinks on the patio and ran into AJ again. The bartenders outside were great and we had a nice evening.

    We ordered drinks and they arrived late. Had dinner, the food was just ok, nothing to write home about. We ordered another drink before we got our dinner and the waitress never brought it until we asked and we were almost done eating by then. The place was packed, spanish/mexican food but very bland.

    Dined on 8/2/2013
    We had an early reservation, we were hoping to sit by the window, but our grandson was asleep in his stroller, so we were seated at an ideal table for us and his stroller. The girl that seated us was very friendly and accomodating. Our server was Lourdes R., who is a gem. My wife decided to have a drink from the bar, since she was fighting a sore throat and cold, and ordered a "Hurricane" which she said was delicious. Our dinner was cooked perfectly and we enjoyed our dinner very much and intend on returning our next visit to Orlando.

    Paradiso 37 is a great find within Downtown Disney. The noise level is a bit high, but then again, everywhere in Disney seems to be that way. We were seated right away and drink orders taken. Food was quite good; both of us had fish dishes (salmon and mahi) and both were cooked to perfection. The Acqua Fresca is a great non-alcoholic alternative. Service was fine; nothing special, but nothing really lacking, either. I'd recommend Paradiso 37 to those looking for a fun, affordable night out.

    We thought this would be a level or two above a fast food restaurant, but the three of us were pleaseantly surprised at the quality of the food, and wonderful service! The food was cooked perfectly, served hot, and the service was really great considering how big the restaurant is, and its location in Disney's Pleasure Island complex. If we're in Orlando again, we wouldn't hesitate to return!

    On a recent trip to Disney World, we quickly tired of the traditional theme park fare which is void of flavor & extremely expensive for what you get. After doing a bit of online research & reading some wonderful reviews, we decided to book dinner reservations at Paradiso 37 located in Downtown Disney. We soon discovered that we had made an excellent choice! Gabriel, our server was wonderful, full of helpful information & guided each of our party of 3 into making the perfect culinary selections. Paradiso 37 is a little expensive, but well worth it! The food is delicious and the servings are generous. The menu had so many great selections listed that we knew we had to come back & we did several days later for lunch! Great Experience!

    We took a mixed group aged 70 to 10 years of age and everyone enjoyed it. The service is always great and everything delivered with a smile. Just as much care is taken with the youngster as with the older members of the party. We sat inside on this occasion, but it's a great place for outside dining too. We'll be back!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012VIP
    Dined on 5/12/2013
    Went to Paradiso for mother's day lunch. Room looked very fun and themed overlooking the Downtown Disney waters. However, our table ended up being a banquet pop up table with white linen on it. We waited 10 minutes for service, and after someone got our drink we ended up with a second server the rest of the time who never told us her name. She was nice and energetic though. I was also disappointed in the server outfits -- in such a themed location with Latin food placed in a storytelling location like Disney you would think they could do better than white polos. The food was good and well spiced. I enjoyed the tacos and ceviche. However, my drink wasn't event refilled until the end of the meal.

    I've had dinner here on many occasions. The kids love the min-burgers. Service is good but it is a busy place on the weekends. Overall a good place to have dinner while at downtown disney. I just don't get all the girls holding menus and dancing out front. Makes this place less ideal if you ask me. Almost like a strip bar handing out flyers. Folks and families will come here regardless of the cha-cha menu holders.

    A vibrant restaurant with great food in Downtown Disney. Beautiful outdoor dining with a view. Unfortunately the waitstaff appears bewildered & overwhelmed even on a slow night. However, the bar staff was wonderful. We waited 25 minutes for wine at our table, and every time the waitress asked if we were ready to order, we told her we are still waiting for our drinks. We finally went to the bar and ordered the wine ourselves, we asked to see a manager and were finally told by the hostess stand that he was unavailable. I would return and dine at the bar.

    Paradiso was recommended by a greeter from the Old Keywest Resort when I asked where we could get some good nachos. The food was a very welcome change from the usual Disney fare and the nachos were delicious! We also tried the quesadillas (w/chicken), the grilled chicken sandwich and the burger w/pineapple- everything was really good! I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a casual, but delicious meal.

Problem with making reservation--we were on-time but then told we had to wait 30 minutes and were given a 'beeper'. It took 35 minutes before we were seated. So why did we make a reservation?

    This was our second visit to Paradiso 37, and we returned this trip based on having enjoyed our last visit in 2011. Unfortunately, we have nothing positive to say about the food or the drinks. We sent back one drink for "revisions" and refused a second. Both of us had tacos -- I had fish and my companion had chicken -- and we found the dishes lacking in flavor and, in the case of the chicken tacos, inedible. The tortilla shells were greasy-hard and when you bite into one, it was "chewy", like a very stale shell. The chicken was dry and tough, as if it had been sitting out under a heat lamp. All in all, I would not go back and cannot recommend it for drinks or food.

    Food was great, but not worth the poor service. My wife has a disability and we asked for a close table. They first walked us to one end of the restaurant, only to find the table taken. Then they walked us to the other end, to find someone just being sat at our table. After ten more minutes, my wife had to climb stairs to a table for four ... we were 5. I was stuck in an active aisle at the end of table. The waiter moved us to a larger table in his section (he saw my discomfort and annoyance at this point), and the hostess was disturbed that the waiter took initiative to solve a problem. No apologies or adjustments from the hostess station. They blamed it on the reservation system. They were totally indifferent to our run around.
