    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    Good Food. The service was just okay. They use really small drink glasses so the waitress had a difficult time making sure we had enough to drink at all times. Sometimes we went 10-20 minutes waiting for someone to get us more drinks. Other than that, good food. Don't get the dinner salad as a main entree. It was very small, didn't have a lot of taste, and not worth the money charged. Every other entree we got (burgers) was a good value for the money and tasted delicious.

    Much better than WolfGang's and one the better in Downtown Disney. Food is a bit nicer than a TGI Fridays, but sort of in that category. Atmosphere on Saturday night was great and depending on the weather the outdoor seating is prime.

    The overall dining experience at this restaurant was good. We dined alfresco, which would have been much nicer had it be warmer outside. We did however, have a nice view of the fireworks at Magic Kingdom. The food was okay. I had the Crispy Hen. My husband had the spare ribs which were really good and tender ( I wish I had ordered that as well). Drinks were good. The live band was great!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 2/19/2010
    I thought the restaurant was reasonably priced considering it's location (it IS in downtown Disney, some people seem to forget that high prices are inescapable in Disney) and that the food and drinks were definitely enjoyable. It is a very neat experience for anyone who is a tequila enthusiast - with over 37 varieties available and several very interesting mixed tequila drinks, there's plenty to choose from. It's got a very "Margarita-ville" feel to it.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 2/15/2010
    We were looking for a place to have lunch where we could sit outside in the sun. (Florida was experiencing a rare cold snap so sun was essential.) Surprisingly, there are not a lot of outdoor seating places on Disny property that fit the bill. But Paradiso 37 was perfect. Their front outdoor seating is in the sun, and when it warms up, their rear outdoor seating is in the shade. We had their specialty appetizer, Crazy Corn. It as totally addictive and not too spicy if you have "spice wimps" in your party. Then we split the shrimp and yicama salad. I thought the shrimp were a bit underseasoned and they could have been more generous with the jicama. But all in all, we found it a great addition to the Disney lunch scene and we will be back.

    We arrived early, and was seated prombtly. Our Waitress came over introduced herself, and took our drink order...I asked for a beer the other 3 in my party ordered sodas. They came out first and the waitress said my beer would be out soon.....not as soon as I thought, we had to wait 10 more min for her to show up at the table, take our food order, and ask for my beer..again! (it was not that busy, maybe about 20 patrons in the whole place)....Food was brought out, and was tasty...small but tasty...burger was good as was the tacos and the corn appetizer were good also. All in all, it was a nice experience, and the "free" Ice cream cone for me, the Birthday Girl, was a nice touch! I would go again, possibly in May when I return.

The restaurant has simplified its menu recently, and the food is tasty, well-presented, and reasonably-priced for a Disney location. I would not hesitate to return here, or to recommend it to others.

    Service was great. We were seated close to our reservation time. Bartender(lady from Rochester, NY) was especially friendly in spite of being busy. Ordered macaroni and cheese bites. Size of the cones containers is deceiving due to the paper stuffed in the bottom. No one in our group was a fan of the green (cilantro) sauce. Mahi mahi quesidillas were wrapped in corn tortillas. Small and bland tasting. Green rice had way too much cilantro. The mahi mahi sliders were great.

    Dined during Bowl week right before New Years Day. There was no wait when we arrived and service while a bit slow at 930pm was fast enough to keep pace with the sizable crowds. Noise level is high energy but not bad where you can't speak up. Not recommended for folks over 55 as the music volume may be a bit too much. Food quality is not bad. Our group had all apps with drinks. While portions were on the small side, we all agreed we'd go back at some point. Of note: their tortilla chips are extremely salty.

    We had a wonderful Christmas dinner here. Crab & fish cakes with coconut lime sauce were unbelievably good. Salads very fresh. Service well-paced despite being extremely busy. We missed our reservation time due to the full parking lots but were able to get a table fairly soon thereafter. The beer was ice cold, music was excellent, great view of the DD scene.

    The food was unique and tasty. The menu had a pretty decent selection. The portions were not very big but were decent. The Short Ribs were very good. The only drawback to this restaurant on this visit was that the music was way too LOUD. Just awful! Even the servers could not hear the orders. It was just outright loud. It also took a very long time between our appys and our main course. Don't know if that was a fluke but I thought I would mention it. We would eat her again for lunch and ask to be seated outside. We would not do dinner again only because of the loudness of the music. Lastly, it was great to find Paradiso 37 on Open Table, the reservation went smoothly and they even accepted by Open Table Gift Check.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 10/10/2009
    Unfortunatley our dining experience was not great. Perhaps in a few months the restaurant will have worked out the kinks of trying to operate at Downtown Disney. We were not greated at the door. The hostess stand was backed up and there seemed to be a lot of confusion trying to seat people. We had reservations at 7 pm. and were not seated until 7:20. Our server did not great us for at least 15 minutes after we were seated and he seemed pretty overwhelmed. We had tickets for the Cirque de Soile at 9 p.m.. I don't recommned trying to make a movie or show prior to dining at Paradiso as it seems like it may be at least a 2 to 3 hour dining experience. The food was very good. Unfortunatley we won't be back anytime soon. The Chef was A+

    i would say the food was fair. It did seem over priced for what was received, but then my expectation was not any different as this is in the Downtown Disney complex, so I am sure there is a premium for location. The food was acceptable and the bar area had soaring ceilings with huge open air doors to a lagoon view. That made it all ok.

    We walked in to Paradiso 37 and loved the environment and music. Our reservations got us seated immediately, although we were not asked if we wanted to dine inside or out. We sat inside very close to other two person tables all in a row. The lights changing colors, the live music, the modern look, etc. all excited my husband and I. He immediately said I made a good choice. I knew this was an energetic, fun place, but it is almost too loud to hear each other talking. I got MahiMahi sliders and french fries and my french fries were cold. You can see the french fries sitting in these cups under heat lamps for periods of time. They were basically like cold, hard McDonald french fries.For the price of the restaurant,you pay for ambiance
