    This restaurant has been a family favorite for 30 years. Consistently great food and drinks. I had the spaghetti with clams last night, delicious. My usual “go to@ entree is the Hand-cut Rosemary Pappardelli with chicken but I decided to try something different and it was very good. I highly recommend this restaurant. It can be a bit noisy but it’s got a great vibe.

    Sitting on the patio is always a treat. The hostess was delightful as was our server. We lingered over our meal, well served but never rushed. As usual we ordered our favorites, chicken and gnocchi and shared a Caesar salad. Paragarys never disappoints.

    So disappointed. Randy must be turning over in his grave. We have been loyal Paragary’s customers since it opened. We usually love their pizza. This night, the service was terrible. When the pizza finally came it was overdone and burnt. We ordered sausage pizza, it was so salty we couldn’t eat it. It had no flavor except spicy hot and salty. The Cesar is usually one of the best in town. This time the Romaine was bitter and the salad was tasteless . Very sad.

    We have been to Paragary’s many times and have always been happy with the food, the ambiance and the service. Last night, the service was horrible. Our server forgot to bring drinks to the table for about 30 minutes, brought the wrong salad, dropped off appetizers without plates, brought food at different times so several family members felt they had to wait as we were not all served. It was honestly not up to the level we expect at this establishment.

    I’ve eaten at paragarys many times and generally been very satisfied. We went for a $55/ person Easter Brunch. At that price it should be a sumptuous feast. But what did we get? Three minuscule 2 bite stale pastries shared by 2 people. A decent smoked salmon appetizer but with too much crème fraiche. And cold eggs Benedict with overcooked firm eggs and very little hollandaise sauce. And some potatoes that tasted like they were fried a few days before and barely warmed in the oven. My wife had a beet and asparagus salad that was about 1/2 of a normal salad serving. And done fried trout that seemed like it was cooked, refrigerated and then warmed in the oven. I wanted the leg of lamb. But it was two tiny slices cooked medium to medium well so I passed Who does that to lamb? I’m not going back!

    For brunch, it is mediocre at best, when booking reservations, didn’t realize it was brunch. The dinner menu looks promising, so will try for dinner out on the beautiful patio.

    Other than the bartender and the water server, folks (I.e., hostess, manager, waitress) came off a little pretentious. Food and portions were very average. Not worth the price. Unfortunately, I don’t think we will be going there again .

    Disappointed they've discontinued the complementary bread service. $12.00 for 4 small slices of bread and $3.00 for dipping olive oil and balsamic seems a bit excessive. Califlower soup was tepid. However their pizza and pasta were great, as usual.

    We had a wonderful meal. Paragary’s is such a nice balance of high end, deliciousfood, beautiful dining areas, and really down to earth, friendly, helpful staff. We’d asked to have a quiet area, if possible, given my elderly mom’s hearing issues, and they accommodated us so discreetly and kindly. Paragary’s is my favorite brunch place!

    They have a ridiculous policy that all people in your party have to be present to be seated. Sometimes you want to start ordering food and drinks and can’t if not all your party is present. Their menu is not gluten free friendly either. The waitress however was super sweet and pleasant. I don’t think I’ll come back again. Been coming for years and this last experience was not good. Disappointing.

    Ambiance was wonderful - like an English or French bistro. Service was great too. Went on a Friday evening and they were packed but they set expectations nicely. Servers were personable too. Tried the meatball appetizer, sliced mushroom salad, Bavette steak, and the spicy coppa pizza — all were excellent. Great execution on presentation, temperatures and flavors. I would definitely go back and try other dishes!
