Paradou, in Manhattan's Meat Packing District, serves upscale, modern French cuisine for dinner, as well as for a popular brunch service, in its bright eatery adorned with real foliage. The aioli de la mer platter, laden with 9-spiced tuna, grilled sardines, boquerones, crab-stuffed artichokes, vegetables and saffron aioli, makes a welcoming appetizer option. Some of Paradou's specialty dinner entrées include the grilled and dry aged shell steak entrecote with potato gratin, the poulet au lemon sage marinated Amish chicken with ratatouille and the happy piggie pork belly with andouille powder and beet puree. Paradou also has a vegetarian dish of the day, as well as a slew of desserts made fresh everyday.

Paradou's brunch entrées, such as the wake and bake, with two sunny side up eggs, melted cheese and andouille sausage pieces, perfectly accompany the champagne cocktail specials.

Restaurant was closed - I did not get a notification, and once I realized (the evening of) OpenTable wouldn't let me make a different reservation that conflicted with the time.

I made reservations for 3:30, when we arrived they told us we still need to wait 15 minutes which would have been fine except we didn't get seated for over AN HOUR LATER. While we were waiting the guy at the door basically told us that even though we've been waiting a while don't let that be an excuse to stay long because " he goes home when we go home and he wants to go home." Once inside we were sat in their"garden" which is a very tiny space where you're crammed at your seat with very little space to even move your chair back. They did however give us champagne as soon as we sat down, so now we were thinking our brunch experience would finally be turned around but no. The waiters asked which juices we would like to mix or champagne with and came back with two dirty glasses which looked poorly cleaned if cleaned at all. When i asked for another class she replied " Oh that's from the strawberry juice from earlier" with no apology or regard to potential allergies. They took our food order pretty quickly however we didn't receive our food for another hour later. The music was HORRIBLE, they seemed to be playing songs from youtube scrambling between workers to find a song to follow the last ( listening to the music from Revel next door would have been a better option). Finally, most tables seemed to be clearing out since it was a little after 6... we however were still not at our 2 hour limit which was promised, so then a worker turns off the music and tells us that we need to leave. We respond that we paid for 2 hours as did everyone else today and should be respected of that 2 hour limit he then began to yell at us to get out and told the waiters to start clearing off our table (which they did). We were rushed and yelled out and we requested to speak to the manger. The manger could care less about our complaints he replied with sarcastic comments and carried on smoking his cigarette. This was hands down the worst brunch experience i ever had.

The experience was fantastic until the next day when I realized that they had gotten our bill all wrong. While it was my fault for not checking before I paid, they had gotten all the orders wrong and ended up charging an extra $50. In addition, I didn't realize that tip was already included, so I paid an extra $100, and no one had the integrity to tell me that I must have missed the included gratuity. This seemed like more than just an oversight - it feels like the waitstaff knew we would be drinking and intentionally messed up the bill to get more money out of us. This has never happened to me and was the worst dining experience I've ever had.

Perfect for birthday celebration. The atmosphere was fun and vibrant. Everyone was enjoying themselves and the brunch special was a really great deal. It was really loud and hard to talk, but it wasn't a problem. We enjoyed the music and had a great time.

We didn't sit down until one and half hours after our scheduled reservation. They felt bad, but we didn't receive any type of compensation for the huge inconvenience. In addition, their policy is you get to stay seated 2 hours, but because the party before us went over, they kicked us out prior to our scheduled time.

A group of 5 of us went to Paradou on a really hot Sunday morning for brunch. Because of the way the restaurant is set up, we were sitting in the courtyard with the sun shining directly on some of us. There didn't seem to be much air moving around, so it grew hot pretty fast. We asked to be moved to a shaded area, as the sun seemed to be just in our spot. The hostess wasn't very nice at all, and wouldn't allow us to move. There were 2 empty seats and we were just going to shift over as the seats were right next to us. When one of my friends started seeing black spots and was about to faint, one of the kind waiters (I didn't catch his name) was able to move us over. Just a side note that none of us were drinking anything except coffee and water. Anyway, besides that, the food was tasty and the atmosphere was a plus.

I loved it but my only complaint is that it got pretty hot on the rooftop! Wish they had one or two more fans going.

I love the patio, great spot for brunch! The wait staff is great and super nice and accommodating. Also, unlimited mimosas for 2 hours is always a plus :)

The service was outstanding! The entire atmosphere made us feel like we were back in Paris on our Honeymoon! Salmon tartar was amazing! We will be going back!

Very vibrant - but also very noisy - the volume of the music made people shout to hear each other and when the whole room was doing this - it took much away from the experience. The food and staff were pleasant.

I was on the look-out for steak frites and they had a really good one with a Roquefort sauce.
Great burrata and a weird but delish Amaish bacon.
Nice and quiet on a recent Thursday evening, despite the Meat-pak location. Like .

We were visiting New City from Texas. This place had good reviews and an intriguing menu. They had a great brunch special ($30 for bottomless mimosas and an item off of their brunch menu) We called to ask for reservation times and the woman who answered the phone was extremely rude saying we don't have any reservation times. When we asked about booking one of the open reservation times on OpenTable and she promptly said those are not available and we will cancel any reservation made through the website. Despite this we made the reservation through OpenTable and figured it was worth a shot as we really wanted to try the restaurant. To our delight the reservation was honored we were sat within 10minutes of arriving. From being sat the experience was less than enjoyable. The waiter was scattered brained and impossible to hear. Even after saying multiple times "we cannot hear you" he refused to speak louder. He had to come back 2 times to confirm our order in addition to two other staff members confirming the order. Our order still came out wrong and the food was disappointingly mediocre. The mimosas were also terrible. The champagne was sour and bitter and despite what flavor we tried (they have multiples) the flavor never got better. Overall our experience was not satisfactory and I would not recommend this place for brunch.

The food was fine. We shared delicious French toast, and a wonderful omelette. The portions were not the size you get in a diner, but the food was superior and the portions were adequate. For dessert we shared a crepe filled with wonderful chocolate and orange flavors.

Be prepared, it gets LOUD in here, especially an hour in to the unlimited mimosas! The food was great, but what made it so memorable was the incredible service. I wish I had learned our waiter's name, he was amazing, attentive, funny, helpful, and always there with a fresh pitcher of drinks when we needed one! Thank you so much!

At first when I walked in there is small room with a small bar I was afraid my Mom and family wouldn't like it for Mother's day. We were then led to the backroom which was a bigger tent that was directed nicely. It had a fun vibrant scene. Good for groups not a lot of space at the table. The menu is funny and unique with a lot of good options. They have a good drink brunch option $30 for unlimited drinks that were good Mimosa bellini etc and an entre. I would definitely recommend this place for brunch. The service was great and the price was doable.
