Delicious meal and first class service. Paradiso is always a pleasure.
Very nice local (Kirkland) Italian restaurant. This is not a cafe. Its a moderately upscale ambiance with white linen table cloths. Its small and gets very noisy when full. And it was jam packed. The food is absolutely outstanding! I had the lamb shank special and it was a 10!
I thought the pasta could be a small add to the entree rather than a sub. The waitress did not give us the specials. My husband orders the veal scallopini and sub veg&potatoes for pasta with red sauce....the put the veal over the pasta.. that does not go well mixed. The pasta should have been put on the side since it’s different sauces. I expected more, and better flavors. The sauces were not tasty they were average.
Service could have been better. Waited 45 minutes even with a reservation and service at the table was on the slow side. Food was excellent though.
Very understaffed for V Day and food was not on par with their regular menu.
Probably over-booked themselves
we went for Valentines day. We had a reservation but still had to wait 1/2 for a table so they probably could have done better on the reservation times but it was Vday so I guess it is fair to expect to wait. Food was as Italian should be, simple high quality ingredients that highlight the food rather than covering it in spices or sauces.
Perfect Valentine's Day night out! Thank you so much! We had a great time.
Disappointing Valentine's dinner. They either over reserved or there was something going on with the kitchen. When I make a reservation I expect my table will be ready then or maybe wait 5 minutes. We waited 30 minutes and they almost se as tes someone with a reservation after us. The whole experience felt rushed and not at all romantic. No good cream sauces on the menu. Hoping this is just a blip..I usually love this place.
We had a wonderful dinner with friends on Valentine's Day. As usual, everything was outstanding. We have decided to make this a tradition. Ristorante Paradiso is my favorite place!
We drive from downtown Seattle for Paradiso. Awesome restaurant and great food
We were seated promptly and received good service throughout our meal. The restaurant is fairly small with lots of tables fit into a tight space. Add to that a holiday and people waiting for tables. It was crowded and somewhat noisy. However, the food was excellent and we were happy with our meals.
We absolutely love Ristorante Paradiso! We have been coming for over 10 years now and it never disappoints. The food and the staff is above and beyond. You will not be disappointed!
My pollo limone was outstanding. The sauce can be easily used for fish as well. My lunch company's veal had great flavor according to him. Looking forward to the next visit.
Weenjoyed our dinner, however it was so busy that the service was slower than on previous visits. I would recommend it for 4 our less people since the noise level made it hard to talk across a table of six.
I had my birthday dinner there. We had a party of 6. Food and service was great! Good selection on the menu. Free birthday dessert for me. I definitely recommend it.
Service was incredibly good! The food was delicious. We’re going back for lunch this week!
Lovely entrees of swordfish, lamb ragu, and lasagne were had by our party of three. My mom raved about the swordfish special.
Shared a nice tiramisu dessert with candle for her birthday. House wines were delicious.
I hope to return-soon.
Neighborhood favorite with great food, good service, and consistent quality. Highly recommend.
Menu has many Italian staples, all well prepared and fresh. Make sure you ask them about their daily specials, too.
We always enjoy the food, staff and ambiance. The wine list is wonderful and the food choices so authentic! Thank you, Manuel and the rest of the wonderful crew, including the chefs!!
Given they were very crowded it was extra noisy especially the large table next to us. There is a heck of a draft that comes through the front door so try not to sit anywhere near it. The food is good but for some reason it seemed to slip a notch from how I remembered it. Service was good and the value overall in the pricing is there.
Dinner was enjoyable as usual. Service also excellent.
The same excellent food and service I expect.
The fregola with baby clams were outstanding. The seafood always is!
Excellent food and outstanding service. One of our favorite restaurants in the area.
The small rooms give an intimate feeling to dining. The food was delicious and was a great choice for New Year's Eve dinner with friends.
We have often enjoyed our dinner here. While the service was excellent the food this time was just average.
Great wine and the food is exceptional
This is good, solid basic Italian. Started with an awesome cocktail made by our server. (Note, there is no bartender) She had never made what we ordered before but it was perfect.
Had the calamari appetizer and they make it without breading--YAHOO! Delicious. Bride had the minestrone and loved it. We both were craving pasta so we went with their superb lasagna. The real reason I go here is their bread. It rocks. I eat way too much of it.
Everything else was perfect except for one thing. When we were first seated we were told by the host that our server would be, "right with you." She was if "right" is 25 minutes. It was full 25 minutes between being seated and having our drink order taken. And we were sitting right in the middle of the restaurant! I think that it was an orphan table that needed adopting. After we got our order in, service was perfect.
The food was amazing. And their fresh baked rolls are delicious.
Although the service was slow, our server was very nice and we enjoyed her. I ordered the gnocchi with sausage & marinara and it was served in a pool of grease/oil. Have never seen marinara quite like that. Good flavor but wasn’t able to eat much of it. Our daughter had pasta with butter and it too was swimming in a pool of fat. Others at our table enjoyed their meals.
One of my favorite restaurants. Located in downtown Kirkland. Wonderful authentic Italian cuisine. Always at the top of my list!
Best lemon chicken with pasta ever!
The restaurant has several different spaces which helps reduce noise levels. The staff was professional and kind, the food was delicious, the wine good all at reasonable prices. I have taken friends to this place several times, always having good experiences.
This is always a great experience! Highly recommended for groups of (6) or smaller.
White linen and black linen napkin options.
Elegance and casual all combined into a proper dining experience.
The noise level needs to be reduced. We were there to get to know each other. We had to shout to be heard and many comments were misu understood.
We had a wonderful dinner - perfect evening - our waiter was amazing
Great food and service. Noisy due to lots of folks waiting for a table in the entry way.
My fish was cooked perfectly in a nice sauce.
Very good experience. Highly recommended by all four of us!
Love it here! Got to go twice in one week. Food & staff amazing!!! The only thing negative is the chairs...not comfortable at all.
