Paragary’s is a lively neighborhood restaurant with modern 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.

As always a great meal! We had brunch on the patio and it was lovely. Food was delicious! My husband got the trout salad and was disappointed with the small portion, although it was very beautiful. The menu is a bit limited. I think another sandwich like a club or maybe a croque monsieur would be nice additions.

We went on a Saturday evening and had a great time! Our server Matt provided excellent service with a great smile! He really made the evening fun and suggested a very nice bottle of wine. The food was excellent too, we truly enjoyed ourselves and will be back!

Had a mister dripping water on us and our food during the whole meal. We were repeatedly told it would stop after a couple of minutes but it never did. Our excellent server tried to get her manager to afford us some sort of compensation for this awful dining experience but he wouldn’t hear of it. What a cheapskate and disgrace!! I’ll spend my dining dollars elsewhere from now on and advise my friends and family to do the same

We enjoyed a delicious dinner on the patio. Our waiter was helpful with recommendations. He checked on us at appropriate times such as soon after our cocktails arrived or entrees. Some wait staff wait until your meal is almost over before they remember to check back. Two of us had the steak, one had a pizza, and one had the giant ravioli. All were quite tasty. The steak was especially tender and served with a pesto sauce & vegetables. The peach crostata was delicious.
I don't like the inability to have two checks at one table for four. It is silly to expect the patron to do the math when it's important to the guests to pay their tab only. Otherwise it was a very nice evening.

I first went to your restaurant 20 years ago I believe. My memories of those experiences was much more positive. It was smaller. When the overall noise level is so high you have tables too close to each other making shouting necessary. That's psychologically difficult. Too many customers for your square footage making service more difficult and supplies difficult to manage, which effected us as well. Not the accompanying support plate under the ice cream bowl was disturbing. We won't be coming back.

We enjoyed everything except the pizza my wife ordered - so spicy she got an upset stomach. Coffee served at dessert was scalding - was the coffee a K cup and microwaved? Awful. Thank you for listening.

We sat out in back at the outdoor patio which is just gorgeous with beautiful planting’s.
I had the Ravioli stuffed w/short ribs. Absolutely delicious!! Will order again. My friend had the tried and true homemade Rosemary Rosemary noodles w/chicken.
Thank you for a lovely and relaxed dinner.

Outstanding venue. Nice interior but the flash is the large patio with plants, waterfalls like slides, foliage. Large air misters by day, hanging lamps by night. Both the food and service were first-class even for the SF Bay Area resident. Highly recommended!

We had a nice table (we asked for it) we had the short rib ravioli, wonderful and the papardelle with chicken, very nice. First Old Fashion was a little watery the second was perfect, the waiter was good, competent and friendly. We view this spot as “a date nite”, a bit romantic and eclectic, we had a nice evening!

The setting and patio are beautiful. Service is great, the food (pork chop and albacore tuna) we had was not very tasty. Would return to try something different.

This is my favorite place to celebrate my birthday. We always sit on the patio. I love the ambience and even with near 100 temps, the waterfalls and misting fans kept it pleasant! I highly recommend it.

We're after-theater regulars at Paragary's and would't change a thing about the place. The food, the service, the vibe are consistently great. There are soooo many good reasons to be a "regular".

We had brunch last Sunday on the patio and it was very enjoyable. Wonderful service and ambience. My partner had the hamburger which he described as great. I had the Eggs Benedict which were good but not great. The egg whites were still runny, and the Hollandaise sauce not as flavorful as it could have been. Having said that, we are definitely returning when we are in town again.

The ambience is so beautiful, but I was kind of expecting a little bit more of an impressive food menu to go with the style of restaurant. Our server seemed very shocked that my friend was gluten-free and wanted a side salad instead of toast with her meal, she felt bad for asking (kind of a normal request these days). I got a scramble that had literally just the ingredients listed and not too much flavor. Definitely it was edible and I would like to go back to try other things on the menu, the patio was lovely as was the coffee!

Love Paragary’s! Our server, Nia, was great. We had a group of 9 for my wife’s birthday and she took great care of us. Everyone loved their food. We love dining on the patio but tonight the there were a lot of flys? A little warm so, probably explains it; nevertheless, we will definitely be back.
