I meet a couple of friendsI meet a couple of friends for lunch at Ristorante Paradiso a couple of times a year. We come from Edmonds, North Bend and South Bellevue, so it's a natural meeting point. The intimate atmosphere, wonderful food and impeccable service make for a great venue for us to catch up and enjoy a leisurely meal. We've never been disappointed!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMkirkland traditionwe've long time kirkland residents. our neighbors moved 18 months ago to the east coast and returned to kirkland for a visit. we asked them which restaurant they missed most and paradiso was mentioned so off to diiner. nice time with good food and service.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Caesar salad was overdressedThe Caesar salad was overdressed and there was too much oil with the pasta, otherwise the food would have gotten a better review. If this happens again, I may take the overall review down, but generally I enjoy the restaurant.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPasquale likes Ristorante ParidisioVery nice 3 course meal for Restaurant Week.

We all ate from the Seattle Restaurant week menu and everybody enjoyed their meal. The service was very good for a large group. All agreed that this would be a good place to go for a group lunch in the future.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA Boutique Italian BistroThoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Ristorante Paradiso. The food was excellent and the wine list was very good and affordable. Service was very attentive even with a new server who was still training. The restaurant is small, tightly packed and very busy so make a reservation.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply wonderful!We found this restaurant about a year ago just driving down Kirkland.
What a wonderful place this is. We love the calamari ( no batter! Hooray!), The Chicken Lemon, The Penne Pasta and this weeks Fish was wonderful with the artichokes and capers.
We go there every chance we get. The Back room is a bit noisy so we ask for the tables out front. Everyone there does a terriffic job.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFinally on OpenTable!Very nice neighborhood spot with friendly staff. They are new on OpenTable, which I've been waiting for. The food is very good, using fresh ingredients. Their fish dishes are particularly good (halibut with fresh roma tomatoes and capers is a favorite of mine). Nice wine list with a good selection of 1/2 bottles. The staff is always welcoming and willing to go that extra mile for their customers.12/10/2012 12:00:00 AM
