Food great - party of. 12 - had to ask to take drink order and we were told about cake cutting fee 4 times
I got it the first time ! We didn't want to whole cake cut as everyone didn't want cake but they cut entire cake and charged $4 even though I brought plates/napkins
Never checked how meals were etc .
I would think when we are spending close to $400 for lunch we would have been made to feel like we were valued.
Very good overall. Wish they would advertise that they only have brunch available until 3PM. We came from a graduation in the mood for lunch. still good, but limited.
A little it louder than I expected. The waiter was awesome, food was fair, just expected something a little less hectic.
Our first experience was surprisingly good. We didn't know what to make of the place, but found the menu and food inviting and tasty. It was a perfect location to meet up with friends we haven't seen in a while for lunch. Two of the four couples were regulars at this restaurant, but for me, it was my first time and I picked it without consulting them. I'm glad there was a good selection to satisfy all tastes.
Consistent quality of food, presentation and service. A pleasure to dine here.
This was a last minute choice to enjoy a birthday dinner following Mother's Day. We were seated immediately upon our arrival for a 5pm dinner reservation. We reviewed the menu and the wait staff shared the specials of the day. We chose the petrale sole offering and paired it with two white wines: gewurstraminer and vognier. The atmosphere was quite lively in conversations as all the patrons seemed to be enjoying themselves. The food was delicious and the presentation was delightful. The portions were more than adequate. The wait staff frequently checked in with us to see how our dining experience was progressing. We have never been disappointed with our dining experiences. A great neighborhood gem!
the crab and avocado salad are always brilliant - the panini was interesting - my friend and I shared everything and she wanted the portobello panini - you need to like cheese and pesto.
First time eating at Paradiso and was very impressed. Recommend reservations as there was a large crowd at the front waiting to be seated. Food was absolutely delicious! A little pricey but you get what you pay for. Will definitely go there again.
KATHRINE IS A GREAT HOSTESS AND WILL HELP WITH REQUESTS EVEN ON BUSY MOTHER'S DAY!
NARSA IS A GREAT WAITER WITH HUMOR AND PROFESSIONAL SKILLS!
AND HIS SUPPORT SYSTEM A-1.
Went there for Mother's Day brunch. Food is excellent! Service was great too!
A true gem: beautiful and delicious food served in a chic setting.
This may be the last time I come here. I have always liked the food at this restaurant but it is so noisy and people are packed in. I could barely hear the people at my table and the atmosphere was almost like a cafeteria. So sad to see these changes.
Great food, great service! Loved it!! They were able to accomodate my extra guest at the last minute. Thank you very much!
Food was delicious and service was great. There were 10 in our party celebrating my son"s graduation from UC Berkeley.
Great place, amazing service and food tasted really fresh and flavourful. They were super accommodating of everyone in our party's specific dietary needs. Will definitely go again!
Awesome restaurant hidden in San Leandro. Excellent food and great service!
Nasser the waiter is a must for anyone that wants to know what excellent service is.
The food is really good here but the service is not. Our waitress was not friendly, didn't thanks us, and worse, snatched the check out of my hand without saying a word. The only reason I gave the service 3 stars is because the host was really nice and the busboys were attentive. As far as our waitress she deserves 0 stars
Great food. Delicious salads and pizzas.
Ice Tea Paradise is the bomb
Disappointing!! I have to this restaurant several times so I recommended it to friends coming rom SF thinking it was great place for us to meet & dine. The waiter we had was terrible! Not only did he mess up the salad order, we ordered a Gluten Free pizza (my friend has to been on "gluten free" diet) which turned out NOT to be gluten free. See review below. This was a very dangerous dining experience!
Additional review: Not only was the waiter rude and lacking in table side manners, he was totally clueless about two of the dishes ordered. Clearly, we ordered the GLUTEN FREE pizza (I have to be gluten free and told him so). The pizza came immediately, and was tasty. Then we ordered the Seafood Louie salad to share, (expensive $27 for the portion served), but what we got was a small Caesar salad. The waiter argued that he "heard" Caesar salad, even though I was pointing to the item on the menu for him to see when ordering. No apologies were offered. The other mistake was not detected until I got home. I looked at the bill; there was no additional charge for the gluten free pizza crust. I immediately called the restaurant, spoke to the manager to check on the contents of the pizza. The waiter was already off duty & there was nothing that indicated that it was gluten free. As a result, I ended up being sick the next day from ingesting gluten. The staff should be trained to REPEAT the order . Seems that the waiter was seriously hard of hearing, and didn't have his customers' best interests in his heart. Food allergies are serious!
Eating out is expensive and part of the dining experience is in the attention and service that you expect to to get. If the service is lacking, I may as well have stayed home and cooked my own meal. It's safer, less expensive and just as tasty. Sorry Paradiso, you earned a zero, but I had to give the one star since the manager comp'ed us the meal. That was nice, but the damage was already done to my intestinal tract.
