Very fresh and tasty food! I had the Caesar salad and Chipotle Salmon for dinner - both were excellent! Prices are reasonable for what you get - especially in Annapolis- and they do offer parking. Truly enjoyed my time with my friend; service was also very good. ✅✅✅😀

We visited Paul's for Sunday brunch to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant wasn't busy which gave our visit a leisurely feel. The seafood omelette was delicious but the filet minion eggs benedict was disappointing. The eggs were over cooked and the steak was very small and their was not enough sauce on the eggs. We were there to celebrate a birthday which was noted on the open table reservation but the restaurant did not do anything special to add to our celebration which is what I expected. So a little disappointing. We will eat here again but not for brunch.

We love Paul's for its superb cuisine, selective wine list, good art, and overall ambiance. It's our restaurant of choice when out-of-town guests visit. The noise level can vary however, depending on time of day and location of table. This past Saturday, we were seated in the front room, next to the front window and across from a table of 4 with very loud patrons. The noise level unfortunately marred what would have otherwise been a perfect meal. After half the tables left, the noise became manageable, so we lingered over delicious desserts and coffee. Advice to others: if you desire less noise, perhaps ask to be seated on the second level, or in the two-story portion where the sound has more room to travel.

I loved everything: the food, the service, the atmosphere. Our server was helpful and personable but not hovering. He stuck a candle in my dessert for my birthday and made sure someone sang. My friends and I ordered the meze platters, and we were surprised by the amount of food. Our dinners and dessert were delicious.

Paul's Homewood Cafe was a great find. I made reservation for 1:45 pm on Sunday. The restaurant stops taking customers at 2 pm but if you are seated, they don't rush you for closing. The service was great; attentive and friendly. Food was deliciousl; fresh seafood, poached eggs cooked just before serving, and well flavored home fries.

Having parking behind the restaurant was also a plus.

I would definitely go back.

One of many visits to this favorite eatery. First time to be upstairs. Food and service is always impeccable. Only "concern" is that a large TV dominates the eating area. So unnecessary. I asked to have it turned off and, fortunately, the other occupied table did not object. I know that TVs in a bar area are a necessary evil but can't people eat and enjoy each other's company without everpresent technology?

We enjoyed out pretheatre dinner. Good menu choices and wine list was very good. Chicken Souvlaki was excellent along with Greek salad. The baclava was very good.
Wait staff was polite, cheerful and attentive even though it was a very busy evening and a full crowd.
Overall, a nice experience in a good quality Greek restaurant.

We both had wonderful meals. The service was great, not pushing us to get us out the door for another seating. We ate at our own pace without feeling like the waiter was hovering. We went because it was Annapolis Restaurant week but will be back.

We brought friends to this wonderful restaurant during Annapolis Restaurant Week. We had the 3 course special and each of the 5 of us were very pleased with the delicious entrées. The Baclava for desert was exceptional. This is a small restaurant but a delight.

Paul's has a very pleasant atmosphere, nicely prepared food and excellent service. The menu which tilts towards Greek cuisine is not particularly adventuresome. That said the fish was cooked perfectly as was the Steak Dianne.

My husband and I have been craving traditional Greek food - thought about some other places, but it had been so long since we went to Paul's, it won out. Worth the decision, even if it was pouring rain. Our server, Rick, was attentive - just the right amount to not be hovering. He knew we ordered too much food, but let us have fun, since we wanted to taste everything! In addition to having great "dips" - like hummus, salmon, tszaziki, were excellent. Hubby had the lamb chops, which were done perfectly - not too rare on the bone. I had 4 different mezze, and could have stuffed most all of it in, but I went for the leftovers.
Highly recommend Paul's.

My wife and I have been to Paul's several times and have always enjoyed it for its food and service. We like Greek food and usually get something Greek when we visit. This time I had a steak and it was super. Our 2 couple friends had never been to Paul's before and they all were very impressed and will be back. Our server was very attentive and friendly but professional. All in all it was a great evening.
