Booked a table, turned up, they were closed. Please update your details to reflect temporary closure.
Visited for a special occasion with our arrival right near reservation time. Seated right away as we were the only customers at that time (2 other tables arrived shortly after we did). Short rib and Zen bowl were our choices for dinner, with the baked brie starter, and crem brûlée desert. There was a little raw sugar under the carmelized layer on the dessert, but other than that, things were great.
Concerned that there were no masks on the servers. Seating was a little close for Covid precautions.
This little cafe features amazing food with many special flavors and beautifully displayed when served. With Open Table its easy to go online and reserve a table. We have never had to wait.
Love the food, love the atmosphere, love the people. The special occasion was having mom-in-law in town and showing off our favorite restaurant.
AMAZING!!! A FOODIE DELIGHT!!! Experience such wonderful taste treats such as corned beef slow roasted with honey, cinnamon cabbage, Thyme and Rosemary ice cream, and Orange and Lemon Sorbet. Wine list?!?!? Amazing local wines that are so much fun to explore. Service?!?!? Personal and so glad you are there! This place is worth the drive to a spot where you would never think a restaurant of this caliber was located! This boutique restaurant is all you need for a very special evening of dining! Call Ahead!!!!
Beautiful evening great food listening to honey bees
My new favorite restaurant. I love the entertainment though last night was at a level it made difficult for conversation but still appreciate the talent that played
Very nice local restaurant with good food and service. My husband said the steak he had was the best he’s had in California. I had the duck it was good
Reasonable prices, high quality food, and friendly staff. Bonus of live music which was excellent and not too loud.
Small venue with excellent service and food in a convenient location to old downtown Redding and Cascade Theatre. Live jazz musicians on the night we were there (Friday). Repeat visits are definitely in our dining out future!
Food and service always excellent! Love the atmosphere! Musical entertainment was an added bonus
Cafe Paradisio is a boutique restaurant .... cozy and well appointed and easy to overlook as you walk by on the street. So you need to go with purpose, and we did. The dining room is small but the table layout invites an intimate meal. Paintings decorate the walls and you can watch from your table as the chef prepares food fresh in the kitchen. We had the linguine and the Zen Bowl with ahi. Both were presented well, freshly done and tasty. This was our first visit and we plan to return.
We went here for an Anniversary dinner in the middle of the week. It was quaint and very quiet. The service great and the food was fantastic. We have been to all of the “fine dining” restaurants locally and this by far beats all of them. We will return again soon! Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Cafe Paradisio is a quaint spot in downtown Redding. My husband and I frequent this gem of a restaurant and never hesitate to bring friends and family every opportunity we get. Katie is usually our server and an outstanding one at that. She is always friendly, courteous, and professionally while paying just the right amount of attention to our table. I have a hard time deciding what to get every time I go as I like to try everything, but most nights I can't get past the Beef Short Ribs with Polenta. So tender and very flavorful. Also the Zen Bowl (with ahi) is a stand by for me if I can't decide it is ALWAYS good. All around a great pace to dine!!
Had the Chimichurri Chicken Avocado Salad it was so delicious and the exact amount as I could actually finish it. The Pinot Noir was also excellent. The service was great. Really recommend this place.
We were passing through Redding and saw this place on Open Table. The food was delicious and well priced for the quality. We’ll be back next time we come through town.
Food was very good
Great dinner night out. Great food.
Amazing, always amazing. Amazing, always amazing. So good I had to say it twice, seriously Cafe Paradisio is a nice personal restaurant with unique dining choices, select drinks and soothing entertainment (not all nights, call first). We have taken friends, family and business associates here with 100% satisfaction every time. Thank you so much for being the "Gem of Redding."
Cozy, casual, small restaurant in downtown Santa Rosa. Good food, great service. If you are looking for a small, quiet place for a nice meal, Café Paradisio is that place.
The food was delicious, beautifully presented, and perfectly prepared. The local wine was a very pleasant surprise, and our server was knowledgable and attentive. All at very reasonable prices. The atmosphere was intimate, comfortable, and unpretentious. My wife and I will return for future date nights.
Went for lunch. This is a small cafe with nice art work on the walls supporting local artists. The staff is very friendly. The food was excellent. Had their soup of the day which was potato- outstanding with home made bacon, grilled onions and of course potatoes- very,very good. Also had bacon in my sandwich which was very crispy and flavorful. Overall a great lunch. Will definitely be back when again in Redding.
Will definitely go back. Food was great and service was good too. We went early (5:30) and was glad to see the place filling up as we were leaving.
We've been to this restaurant several times, and always enjoy dining here. From the delicious food, to the kind and professional service, all very good. This last visit I felt the food was being served too quickly (soups were served before we were done with our appetizer), so I asked the server to slow it down, and give us a bit more time between courses. She was very polite about our request, and we had an enjoyable, leisurely meal.
Food, as always, was delicious and well presented. I love all the interesting choices although it makes deciding what to order a challenge as I want to try it all.
Cafe Paradisio is the place, the place where you go for quality food, casual atmosphere, quaint seating and Amazing Service. On this visit I personally had the Cucumber Soup (cold) which was unique and tasty, followed by Salmon. Everything about our dining experience was 5 Stars!!! Thank you for a great night out.
Out standing dining experience! I put, 'fair' for value because the portions are small for the price. I love eating there but I leave still hungry...
We have been to Cafe Paradisio a few times, and have always enjoyed the food. The chef is very creative and they offer unique dishes, crafted from fresh ingredients. We started with the pork belly and spinach salad appetizer, which was outstanding! The pork belly was cooked to perfection, and the salad was delicious albeit a bit spicy. I had the lasagne, with a side of sausage and Tantardini's garlic bread, all of which were delicious. My wife ordered the rib eye steak, which was a special. She asked for it medium-rare, but it was more medium cooked; very little pink on the inside. In all fairness, it was a very thin steak, which is difficult to get medium-rare, but we felt it should have been advertised as a thin cut steak. Our server was attentive, but not overly so, and very sociable.
Loved the dinner. the food is delicious. We will be returning. The music was outstanding...just a little hard to visit in such a small place.
They ad a nice table waiting. The woman waiting our table was really gracious and made an effort to have everything just right. We felt very taken care of. And the food was excellent. We are from a ‘foodie’ place and are pretty good cooks ourselves, so sometimes when we eat out we are disappointed but not this time. We had scallops really well prepared and Cajun seafood fettuccine both excellent.
Appearances can be deceiving. If I hadn’t seen a story on the wall that this was it’s 6th year of business I would have thought it was still in the stage of trying to get things right.
While the ambiance is upscale the food didn’t turn out to be.
The baked Brie was over baked and melted flat on the plate.
My Pesto Penne Pasta was, in reality, an Alfredo with dried basil was mixed in. Sadly the Alfredo was over ladled into the pasta so it was soupy thickened with clumps of Parmesan.
What a wonderful dinner! Perfect for date night with my husband. We have a small suite of restaurants we frequent in the Redding area and this one is now near the top of our list! If you're looking for a very well prepared, thoughtfully sourced, tasteful experience, this is the place. I had the Beet Salad as a starter and Chicken Marsala entree. I asked to substitute veggies for the pasta in the entree & the chef prepared a delicious mix of roasted vegetables for me. The Marsala sauce was exceptional! My husband had the New York Strip steak and bourbon sweet potatoes - both were fantastic and the mint gelato was unique and refreshing for dessert. Our server was new and we really enjoyed him. He worked very hard to please us and was very charming, despite being new on the job. We will definitely be back - frequently!
Amazing food, great atmosphere, excellent service. Definitely my new favorite place to go.
The food is some of the best in Redding with a small quaint atmosphere. I bring my out of town guest there for my 1st choice .
Every dish ordered was not only beautiful and delicious.
Absolute worst lasagna I have ever had. Microwaved, soggy, bad sauce. I was shocked. My guest had same and pushed it away and left hungry.
Food, ambiance and service was excellent. Menu will please most anyone, Just disappointed we were to early for the 7pm live music, will have to plan on that next time
This was our first time at Cafe Paradisio. We were very pleased and will definitely be returning.
I made reservation for Valentine's Day for 6:00PM. After confirmation I received a call the next day stating that I would need to change the time so I decided on 5:30PM. I was hopeful that this was an isolated issue and I really had no problem doing so, but as my experience unfolded it seemed to be the norm.
We were seated promptly and our waitress was very courteous and efficient. As a matter of fact, all the personnel working that evening were very attentive and seemed to really care about making customers were taken care of.
When we were presented with the menu, I was taken back by the fact that we were only given the choice of the Valentine's Day special menu. When I made the reservation and even looked on line, there was no indication this was the case. My wife and I are not big eaters but we were basically forced to order two meals, strawberry champagne and a desert. At this point I am thinking that maybe I should have inquired but after some thought I believe this should have been stated up front.
After sitting with my wife for a little over an hour and had eaten, we were told we would have to leave our table and sit at the bar to finish our drinks so the next customers could have our seats. I travel quite a bit and was taken back that we were asked to do this as I have never experienced this before.
We ended up finishing our romantic dinner at the bar and felt a little disappointed with our evening. We did make the best of it and chalked it up to the fact that we may not be coming back for a Valentine's dinner here again.
On a positive note, I think this place would be a good stop for a regular meal or just some drinks when it is not pressed to serve so many customers. We intend to try it on a regular evening as it seems that may be what they are better at. I will be happy to leave a positive review at that time if my intuition is correct.
