The soup of the day was delicious, and we both had it. The Cobb Salad was truly superb and the spinach salad was very good. As usual, the service was excellent.

I was not impressed with this restaurant. Our table ordered the grilled cheese, steak, a lam rigatoni special, and the crab cakes. Everything was just okay. I definitely would not recommend the grilled cheese—way too greasy and too much cheese (if there is such a thing)!

Fantastic music on Sunday nights from 5 to 7 PM
Food is always very good and the wine is excellent for the price compared with other restaurants in the Pearl.

This is my colleague's and my "go to" restaurant for the end of each term to celebrate we survived! It is our favorite. The best food, desserts, and wine list. We just said the other day, after eating there, that the place is "our place," now as the service is so friendly, and the food is so good. I would highly recommend it!

We went to Paragon with two friends for the Portland Dining Special 3-course dinner--the spinach salad with fennel was very good. The pork mole was outstanding and left over enough for another dinner. The pot roast and rigatoni with lamb were also very good--a good chef and a good butcher, clearly. The chocolate dessert was over the top, but guess what--we finished it all! We had fancy cocktails (mine was OK), and a bottle of Cotes du Rhone, which hit the spot. All in all, a good deal.

The Portland Dining Month menu was amazing. Some of my table ordered that and the soup de jour was incredible. Additional parties at our table ordered the pot roast, which is a staple on the menu. It was incredibly moist and very flavorful.

Ambiance was good but it was very cold in the restaurant. Windows all around the restaurant give it a good vibe. My husband had the pot roast--very tender, but too much sauce to enjoy the garlic mash. I had the risotto prawns. A little too much basil that over powered the prawns (and I like bold flavors.) It was over-priced by about $3-5 per dish. Cocktail was fresh and delicious.

No major complaints about the food or service, but the fact that different menus are used at different times of the day is confusing. There appear to be menus for lunch, happy hour, dinner, and something called a bistro menu as well. Even the hosts and waitstaff had difficulty explaining what’s available when. Needs to be streamlined.

I've come here numerous times for lunch and it was great. Dinner not so good. Grill was over heated leaving a terrible taste on anything that was grilled. Returned food - main course n dessert. Very expensive meal for being displeased. Hardly any accommodation for vegetarians. No real desire to please customer. Server was great... will not return for dinner again. Too many options that execute especially for cost.

The food, drinks, servers, and restaurant are phenomenal. Downside is noise. The bar side gets pretty packed and lively but there’s no real division between the dining area so we were half yelling to talk. (Disclaimer - it was a Saturday night dinner)

Tried the black mussels in tomato/wine broth that was excellent. The Grand Central Bakery bread is always too good! My wife enjoyed her corned beef sandwich but the portion was too big. It would be great if Paragon offered half size portions for those who prefer to eat less or cannot eat a lot. We always enjoy going here

We are a family of four and somewhat regulars at Paragon. The food is really good, they have good service, great cocktails and a good wine list. This time was our first New Years Eve there and it impressed me even more than usual. First, with one elementary and one middle aged child, it was so nice that they offered their regular menu. And, given it was our main family festivity for the evening, what a lovely surprise it was to arrive to the room so festively decorated with balloons, and hats, tiaras and such on the tables. They really went all out to make it feel special. We'll keep returning!

This is my former university student's and my favorite fixed place to meet 4 times a year. We love it here. She is vegan, and I am not, and the menu provides it all. The wines are fabulous and the service is excellent. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

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 :)
