Old tired menu. No specials. Chicken, pot roast, salmon, yawn. No pizzaz. Limited menu.
Only thing worthwhile: The Mussels.

Will have a cocktail here but will not dine here again. Three strikes yer out!!!

We went for my fiancé birthday and it was delicious as per usual. It was a Friday night so the bar was packed and the noise level was a little too high for our taste but our waitress was very nice, very attentive. My mom and I had the pot roast which is phenomenal. My fiancé had the trout which he said was very good but got to be kind of one-note after a while. The lamb bacon bruschetta appetizer was probably one of the best things I've eaten! Cocktails are always delicious and there's quite a variety. We will be going here more often :)

The food was truly excellent in every way; can you imagine a crab cake starter that was 90%crab? This chef knows what he is doing! I had the Chinook salmon in a pea puree which was exceptional with the skin side grilled to perfection.
It all came together with the thoroughly knowledgeable waiter. I plan to visit again soon.

We went to Paragon with another couple. The service was great - so were the food and specialty cocktails we had. The Brussel sprouts and crab cakes were OUTSTANDING.

Also, my husband is in a power wheelchair and both the entrance and the restaurant are well ramped and accessible throughout.

Share a great dinner with my son- the trout was amazing as was the lamb bolognese. My dirty martini was too dirty but was quickly replaced with a side of olive juice so I could get the right amount. Great service and lovely atmosphere in a great location for a night in the Pearl district.

We ordered two salads at lunch. My friend had a fried chicken Cobb which looked good, I ordered a blood orange and kale salad which was swimming in vinaigrette....
It was a mess but I hate to send things back so I ate it kind of shook off all the excess dressing as best I could.

Nice atmosphere. Great wait staff. The room temperature was really cold, and we never did warm up while there. Perhaps it was our location near the windows. Food was quite nice, but portions for the starters were too large. We did the Portland Dining Month menu and overall, we enjoyed it.
