This restaurant is permanently closed. Paragon is a neighborhood gastropub serving ingredient-driven, honest food, craft beers, unique cocktails and eclectic wines. Located in the South of Market (SOMA) district of San Francisco and just one block from AT&T Park, Paragon features loft-like ceilings, custom décor and a roll-up garage door that leads out onto a sunny outdoor patio. Paragon's design aesthetic fits perfectly in this industrial-meets-artsy neighborhood: reclaimed barn wood and hand-painted subway tiles can be admired throughout the restaurant and the lounge area is flanked by a giant chalkboard announcing the available craft beers above a well-worn communal table made out of rusted metal and reclaimed Koa wood.

We were happy to see the buttermilk fried chicken back on the menu. We had been there two years before it was fabulous but last year when we came to San Francisco it was off the menu. But when we tried it this year it was like a totally different recipe. Not at all worth the $25. And the Porkchop which is normally fabulous fabulous, was very overcooked and tough. Very disappointed because this is such a great location near South Beach Harbor.

What a great spot to have dinner before a Giants game! The food was excellent (steak :)) and the staff was very fast & friendly. Reservation a must on game day and we were seated right away when we arrived. A+ all around!

Once again the folks at Paragon provided a wonderful experience. The food is good, the service was excellent, we got in and out in time to make the game. This has become my favorite "go to" place for dinner before the ball game.

The service and food are always great at Paragon. We were in a hurry as we had to get back to AT&T Park before first pitch. We had only 40 minutes. Our server was right on it. Our food came out quickly and was delicious. The beer selection is always great. Paragon is our go to place for an ice dinner before a Giants game.

We went to Paragon for the first time for dinner and drinks before a Giants game. Enjoyed the drinks, enjoyed the food, enjoyed the environment. My only complaint, or request I guess, is that some of the lunch selections be available on the dinner menu. There were no salad options, and entrees listed totaled maybe 7-8.
Would like to go back when we have more time and sip beverages on the outside patio area.

I felt it was a little pricey for what we got. I ordered the fried chicken which was very good, but I was served one small breast and 2 legs. For that price I should have the opposite. Greens were good and I'm not a huge greens guy.

I'd like to try Paragon for lunch sometime.

Paragon is a perfect restaurant for before or after the baseball game. Easy to walk to from AT&T Park. The indoor/outdoor seating is a big plus. Terrific bar and the bartenders are really nice. Friendly and conscientious wait staff. The food is always very good with interesting menu selections...comfort food at its best! Though they have appetizing entrees, on this particular trip, we decided to go with a selection of appetizers. All were delicious...pork sliders, chicken wings, coleslaw, and burrata with stone fruit and crostini. We only received one crostini and asked for a few more. We topped off our meal with a selection of sorbet. Workable wine list as well. Would definitely recommend Paragon.
