Paragary’s is a lively bistro with California flair, located in the heart of Midtown, Sacramento. The menu and bar program are dictated by the seasonal bounty of the Sacramento region. Originally established in 1983, the restaurant underwent an extensive remodel in 2015, combining both modern and traditional elements to create a relaxed, timeless environment that lets the food and drinks take center stage. The light and airy interior opens up to the renowned dining patio that features waterfalls, 60 year-old olive trees and a large fireplace.

Brunch date. Food was fresh. Coffee was hot. Service was attentive. Happy there wasn’t crazy Sunday brunch madness.

The food is always good. I had the steak and it was delicious and did not disappoint!

Good chance someone called in sick because the service wAs very slow. From the start, having bread served and our meals brought to the table took more time than usual. The waitress didn’t come by the table often which makes me think she had far too many tables.

The kitchen was slow too because the couple sitting next to us got their pizza taken off the bill for the time it took.

Outside of the service snag (isolated issue IMHO) it was great.

Service was delayed, waitress said she thought we had been waited on since we brought wine from the bar. A drink ordered took too long to get. Our fish entrees was barely warm and we didn’t have time to have them warm it up( 2 dinners). Waitress was too casual about our checking in needs. Soup and dessert were very good.

Service was excellent! My friend had the ravioli which she loved. I was debating between the salmon and wagyu. My first choice would have been the rockfish, but it wasn't offered outside of the Dine Downtown menu. There was something 'off' with the wagyu that I couldn't describe. I didn't finish it because of that. I didn't complain as everything else was great about the evening. The restaurant had a nice energy and vibe!

Like most popular restaurants today dinner conversation is often difficult due to noise. Someone someday will reintroduce the “booth concept” so you can enjoy the conversation without shouting

an odd experience. I guess more a bar than restaurant today. our server needed to be supervised and/or trained. poor communication and equally poor technique. don't serve across other diners if you don't have to. ever. ask the right questions. when food is served whomever brings it should know who gets what. and on and on.

food was all salty as can be. that said, bacon was smoky and yummy. not enough chicken in the salad. not enough gravy on biscuits and gravy and couldn't offer French toast without stuffing. silly. just not good. sorry to write a bad review. I try not to but this was not worth the money and expect better at a Paragay store.

We visited Paragary’s for NYE, and while I’m usually skeptical of preset menus, this on did not disappoint! Everything was excellent and we both left extremely happy. The service was great and food was excellent!

Altho Paragarys has been here for years, it has evolved halibut poached in chamagne with salsify ( vegetabes Id never had). Drsser was so fun— I wish they’d add as regular option: sliced carmel apples with chunks if pitato xhip & aple cider sauce. Salty & sweet par excellence

Dined there exactly one year ago. In all respects this was a significantly inferior experience. Service was poor and slow. Food was mediocre. Had a 5:00 p.m. reservations. Ordered 3 of one entrée and were told after ordering that only two were available (how could that be when they had just opened for dinner? Were the two warmed up from the day before.) Replacement entrée arrived as a steak and two onion rings. Individual served sent it back and it was returned to her appropriately.

One side of the table was a bench for 3 people. Individuals on that side had to slide across to leave for restroom. Guests who were in the way had to stand up.

We had an excellent experience last year. Now, we won't go back.

We dine here frequently and really are impressed with the staff. They are pleasant and attentive. The Food is good but they could add more vegetables to the entree's. Also a few more specials would be good. The other complaint is that they charge for parking after 4:30 across the street...It seems to me if you are eating in their restaurant you might not have to pay the $5.

I've had a better meal. Ravioli dish was good but skimpy on quantity. The rib eye was a little tough and it took a little long to get our food. For the cost $ it should of been better.

We love this restaurant for brunch and go often. For the very first time I was disappointed in the food. There were 8 of us and many ordered Eggs Benedict, Avacado Toast with soft cooked eggs. To a person, with maybe the exception of one or two eggs they were hard boiled with hard centers. Very disappointing. The food portions see smaller as well. On the good news side, the atmosphere is always wonderful, the servers great and fun. Clearly someone new was cooking.......
