    I’ve been here several times but this visit was a bit disappointing. The waiter and other employees were very nice but the service was extremely SLOW !!! They are apparently so understaffed and they are working very hard, but it took a long time to order, then longer to get the food - however, they brought the check to us at record speed ! I will come back and hope the service is better .

    The food and service was very good, but the special menu for Father's day was somewhat overpriced. Brunch for a family of 4 was $250!! I would consider trying this again, but definitely not with these kinds of menus...

    Dinner for 4 on the patio. Why do they have have to play music in a very noisy room? Salmon was small, but tasty. Pasta was good. Good wine by the glass list. Service was fine - but.... Not special. Just fine.

    Worst experience ever, we had the server David. He was very inattentive. I ordered 2 bottles of nice champagne. I had to ask him multiple times to refill my glass. On top of that, he refused to ask the chef my questions about entrees. When I asked the manager to switch servers the gentlemen refused. Eventually the waiter poured a glass of champagne filled with bugs. At least he took one of the two nice bottles off the tab. I didn’t even want to order entrees after the experience with the first bottle and appetizers we ordered. I used to enjoy coming here but I won’t be back. The craziest part, on my way out I went to use the restroom and there was absolutely no toilet paper.

    This was our first visit to Paragary's and they were very busy even though it was a Tuesday evening. We were promptly seated and got to sit in the breezeway which was lovely, as we had a great view of the outside patio with its foliage and fountains. The wait staff were attentive and the menu had a nice variety to choose from. I had the Rosemary Papardelle and my dining companion had the personal pizza. Both items were very tasty and we were pleased with our meal. Paragary's has an extensive wine list, and I appreciate that they have nonalcoholic beer available, too. For a restaurant with good food and drink, a lively atmosphere and superb outdoor dining environment, Paragary's is a Midtown gem!

    We choose Paragary's to celebrate our anniversary since it is one of favorite restaurants in the Sac area. Never disappointed. The food was delicious and the outside setting is special. What really made this evening, was the waiter. He was very personable and took time to chat with us. Paragary's will always be our go to restaurant when we come to Broadway Circus and when we have visitors who come to Sac area.

    The food is both inventive and fresh, and the staff is well organized and managed. They seem to anticipate each customer's needs. Extra touches like splitting items in the kitchen, without being asked, and always trying to give the customer the best possible seat in a beautiful environment, make it a lovely experience. I plan to be a regular when I am in town!

    Very much enjoyed the outdoor patio. We had Sunday brunch and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the relaxed, and un-rushed ambiance. The food had beautiful presentation and I would have given higher marks except that one of my pancakes was quite raw. The waiter quickly provided me with another plate and we very much overall enjoyed our Paragary experience.

    Super loud. We love the place but got stuck sitting inside and it’s too many people in a small place and it echos when you have 20 tiny tables next to each other. Still love it but wish they wouldn’t stick so many people next to each other in a small dining hall. Service and food was great.

    Let me start by saying that the waitstaff was very nice. The problem was with the hostess and manager who ruined our experience. We arrived for a dinner to celebrate my mother’s 81st bday. It was a very hot day at around 90 degrees at 6:30. I wasn’t worried about the heat because when I made the reservation, the option of sitting outside wasn’t available so I assumed we were eating inside - which is what I wanted. I noted my mother’s birthday in the reservation notes and that we would prefer a quieter location because she is hard of hearing. When we arrived, the hostess told us we’re were going to sit outside. I was surprised because I assumed we were eating indoors. The hostess told us that since we didn’t note a preference for an indoor seat, we would have to sit outdoors or wait 20 minutes for indoors. She then proceeded to argue with my husband when we said we thought we were eating inside and why do we have to wait 20 minutes — isn’t that why we make reservations? When my husband noted two tables for 2 that were open, he asked if we could put them together for a table of 4. The hostess asked the manager and the manager — who was no more than 5 feet away— turned and looked at us and told her “no” and then turned away. No walking over to explain anything, no offer to seat us at the bar with a drink, no effort to at least appear like he was trying to be helpful. We ended up agreeing to sit outside, but they put us next to the service station and away from the misters & the fan. We waited 10 minutes for our water. My mother began to feel sick from the heat so we asked to be moved inside. After the hostess AGAIN argued with my husband that since we didn’t specifically request indoors they couldn’t accommodate us, they begrudgingly moved us. No apologies. No happy birthday to my mother. That pretty much ruined the dinner. It also didn’t help that the food was not what I remembered Paragary’s to be. It was ordinary at best. We will not be coming back. Ever.

    Fantastic experience all around at Paragary's. We went for Anniversary Dinner, were able to sit on the amazing Patio, and although it was 97 deg outside, they had many misting fans set up, and the temp was bearable. The food was fantastic. Servers very attentive, but not too much. Did not feel rushed. Price was very reasonable considering what you get. Great place. They helped make my anniversary extra special by providing a perfect experience. No complaints. Keep it up Paragary's!

    This place was packed and highly rated so it could just be that the bar for restaurants in Sacramento is very low compared to other cities. We were in and out in under one hour with cocktails, appetizers and main dishes. The servers handed food and drinks over the half-wall next to our table instead of actually serving the items on the table. There was no service or friendly interaction to speak of, just rushed in and out, so the restaurant could make as much money in one night as possible. The food tasted and looked like the chef didn’t have an idea of what good food tastes or looks like. We ordered the Rosemary Papardelle, the chicken was burned and dry. We also ordered the Burrata with Broccoli and the flavors did not go well together. The mushroom salad was presented in an unappetizing way and did not taste good. Very strange flavor combinations and food presentation. Very disappointing experience and confused that there are any culinary professionals actually in charge of the kitchen. Also, our Old Fashioneds were served with lemon and orange and a cherry. This is my first negative review on Open Table so I feel lucky to have had a good record so far of finding the best places. Sacramento must just be a food desert.
