    The team was kind and very efficient. Managing a packed house seamlessly. The food was fantastic but the mushroom salad has changed and I not as good as before.

    Extremely flavourful- from the figs & kumquat; clam pasta, chicken & polenta - delicious wines & had room only to share the sticky toffee pudding dessert. Friendly servers- not rushed to finish-lively ambience - a great dining experience in Sacramento.

    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!

    The dining rooms and bar are beautiful, and elegant without being too formal. The food and bakery items are delish. We ate a Sunday brunch menu; All of our diners were very pleased with their choice. Service was upbeat and attentive to our requests. Eager to come again and again.

    Our unpleasant experience began soon after entering the restaurant where the host at the podium was extremely rude and disgruntled! This uninviting, offputting interaction really set the tone for the entire evening. Unbeknownst to us when we made the reservation there was a prix fixe Valentine’s day menu and we were just looking to have a quick dinner celebrating an 18th birthday during the week on a Wednesday. Originally the restaurant was pretty sparse, with a few couples here and there but after a while it was jam-packed. The staff was cramming and stuffing people in tables with barely no space to eat or move without impeding on the neighboring patrons. The actual cuisine served was just OK. None of it was really spectacular in taste, although the presentation was very pretty. The lavender drop cocktail was the best thing of the evening. The noise level was extremely loud, almost deafening. The waiter was professional and kind. We chose this restaurant based off of reviews and the farm to fork offerings.

    The only issue was we made a dinner reservation and were seated at a very small table in the bar area, barely big enough for two full size dinner plates, despite reserving a “standard table”. We ended up moving to the bar for dinner for more room and the bartender Jason took great care of us.

    We ordered the king salmon. It was a little undercooked and not too flavorful, but the salmon quality was excellent. The forbidden rice was very tasty, and it was paired with carrots and cauliflower. We got the flourless chocolate cake for dessert, and it was outstanding.

    Absolutely love the restaurant! Our server was outstanding as was all of the service. I ordered the wrong Mary’s chicken dish  as the one that came had some beautiful homemade pasta which I could not eat. My significant other asked if that was the dish that I ordered our server. Did you want the half a chicken? I said yes that’s the one I wanted she said no problem. I will go have them make that right now. Just keep this dish on us. Really! How many restaurants would do that it was truly my error.  The dish came that I wanted and it was fabulous. Also, we shared the beet salad which was fantastic.

    We had the Cesar salad which is a fav. We like and expect a traditional Cesar which is almost nonexistent in Sacramento. Paragary’s does come close. Anchovies are an essential ingredient in Cesar but almost no restaurant includes them-except Paragary’s and Waterboy. I had the squash ravioli which was excellent. The hazelnuts were a nice touch. I would have rated 5 stars except for 2 things-The noise is excessive and the tables are too close. It was awkward to sit next to people who were bumping into us and whose conversation we could hear. The second issue I have is the variety. I have been a Paragary’s customer since it opened and I feel like the selection has veered too limited. Too much pasta and not enough other options. For those gluten free or low carb- not much choice.
