    Made a reservation for a Friday and was seated on time. The patio is spectacular. The inside has a nice vibe also. The service was friendly and very attentive. Anticipating our needs. The food was so good. From the salads to the pasta to fish dishes all was delicious. Definitely on my return list.

    Always wanted to go, for what ever reason, never did but this is the first time and now I feel bad for missing out all those years. Will definitely be going again. We didn't get to eat in the outside area because it was full but will try that next time. Food was excellent. A bit noisy inside.

    After we ordered our apps and drinks we were forgotten for an hour. No one came to check on us to get our dinner order for an hour. Then gave us a tip option on their billing app that was 18 0r 25 percent. Not 15 or 20. Weird as the waiter stands over you while you tip them. Weird. I used to love this place.

    Extremely disappointing dinner and experience at Paragary's. We waited for a patio table for an hour, was told we were next on the list, watched several groups get patio seating when they came in after us, and then were told there would be another 30-45 minute wait or sit inside. Main entrée order didn't arrive for 40 minutes, and were told one plate ordered had run out; and a pasta pork ragu dish didn't have any ragu sauce.......just micro-bits of pork in washed-out in chicken stock base........dry and nasty .........we won't be going back

    Disappointed this go around. Food not up to Par ( mushroom soup served cool, tagliatelle dry) and service was incredibly slow. Server then automatically added 20% tip when presenting check which was ballsy for the evening. Will give this place a rest.

    Exceptional food and service. The hostess was able to seat our group of six outside in the garden which which we enjoyed very much. A bit tricky getting through to make a reservation for larger groups. We stopped by the day before just to confirm.

    I love eating at this restaurant on the patio. The food is good, service excellent, patio is stunning. Unfortunately the reservation doesn’t allow to specify patio seating and we were forced to sit inside or wait 25 minutes. It is WAY too noisy for me inside.

    Service was so slow. Had early reservations. First people in the door. Waited about 45 minutes to take our order! No apologies. Felt like we were begging to be served. Had to ask for bread twice. Seemed like we were forgotten about. Food wasn’t hot. So very loud that eating wasn’t enjoyable. Not the restaurant it used to be.

    Came for Mothers Day brunch with my family. Set menu for $60 dollars pp. Waited 20 minutes before anyone brought water, another 10 for our server. The basket of dry pastries that came with every brunch would not have arrived had we not requested twice. No pancakes or waffles on a Mother’s Day brunch menu?? Children’s meals arrived first, no issues with that but adult meals arrived 20 minutes after when kids were ready to leave and we had to ask for the meals at that. Food itself was mediocre at best. Overall a very underwhelming experience. Have been to Paragary multiple times before and it’s been good but this was dismal. Will not be back

    Even though we had reservations for our anniversary and requested patio seating, we found that when we arrived there was only bankette indoor seating and a considerable wait for outside. We decided to wait as sitting thirty inches next to a stranger and hearing their conversation is not what we look forward to. We went to the bar area and ordered a couple of glasses of house chardonnay. Somehow we were given their reserve wine which totalled almost forty dollars. Not a good start. After about a half hour we were given a small table near the entrance to the patio where one seat was looking at the side exit door and the busboy's cleaning cart. The menu was limited with only seven entrees listed. We ordered some wine and we both decided on two different pasta dishes which one was bland and the other cold. The service was slow which we chalked up to this being the evening before Mother's Day. We ordered ice cream after dinner but when it didn't show up after about twenty five minutes we asked for the check. When the check arrived the waitress hovered above our table waiting for use to close out our tip on the credit card reader that auto adds either 18 or 21%. I asked for some time to think. We were unfortunately left with the opinion that this establishment is attempting to live off its name and past reputation. However, if you want to go to a place where you feel lucky just to get in and you do not care about service, excellent food and any indication of value, this is the spot for you.

    Went on mother's day so understandably busy. Atmosphere and food were fine as usual but service was poor. Hostess was aggressive about us leaving as soon as possible for table turnover and waitress was not very welcoming or attentive. We visit Paragarys for special occasions but will look elsewhere now.

    I've been to this restaurant a few times and enjoyed it but this time around it was disappointing. Turns out they have a surcharge for mocktails so I ended up paying more than I did last time when I got a bottle of wine. Add to that, it was only two of us and they sat us at an awkward corner table so we couldn't sit across from each other. It's not a horrible place but I will re-think going back next time.
