This is a great restaurant but suffering from staff changes. Tonight’s server was robotic at best and familiar dishes were mediocre. On the positive side long time servers go out of their way to greet patrons even if not in their service area. Still better than most .
I like everything about this place. Menu is nice
A great "go to" for Italian food in a cozy, friendly setting. Servers are wonderful. Food is always top notch. Good wine list, too.
We eat at Paradiso regularly. Yesterday we shared the fabulous antipasto; one of us had the beet salad, and the other had the minestrone soup: everything was great. The service was attentive but not pushy. Our waiter helped us choose the wine.
Great food, wine and rolls
Excellent food and service. One of the few Italian restaurants on the Seattle eastside that are true to the Italian tradition.
Everything was perfect!
Overall good experience but nothing outstanding except the host did make a few calls to see if people were going to take their reserved table and no one showed so we got to sit outside. I did send back my pasta, the sauce was like soup and a whole lot of it. It didn’t even coat the pasta. 2nd round was much better.
We stopped by for dinner and ate outside, Great food, excellent preparation and flavors. Very reasonable for the quality. Waiter was attentive. A nice evening under clear skies and full moon.
Good Food, good service. Quite a few options to choose from
We Boated over to Kirkland to go up to one of our favorite restaurants. We met our friends at Paradisio for a lovely lunch. Our waiter was awesome and everyone had a delicious meal!! We highly recommend this lovely little restaurant, so delicious and a great wine list!!
Always delicious and wonderful!
Always a great Experience
I had the veal stuffed with large prawns. It was delicious. Our servers helped each other out, therefore, the service was great. As usual, the bread is one of the most wonderful things about this restaurant....they should bring honey so it could be eaten for dessert.
Love this place. Always great food. Always good service. Wonderful ambiance.
Excellent food and wine. Service was great!
This was the 3rd or 4th time we have dined here, so obviously it’s decent, however it seems like the quality of the food and service diminishes with each visit.
I had the Scampi Vino Bianco last night and the shrimp was way over cooked, relatively flavorless and didn’t smell great.
We waited for almost 30 minutes for the check and were never even offered dessert.
On the plus side, the ambiance and location are great and the Pollo al Limone never disappoints.
Restorante Paradiso is a wonderful place to dine. It is popular, so it's difficult to get a table. Outdoor seating has made it possible for the restaurant to expand so we were able to dine there on a Saturday night. The Caprese was excellent and beautifully presented. Our entrees ranged from Penne Moda to Filetto Di Miaili. Delightful! The Chianti Classico was also excellent! Restorante Paradiso is my favorite restaurant on the East Side.
Always so good!
Always full and reliable. If I had one suggestion for improvement it would be to change the menu more often and to maybe get a little more adventurous. Of course this really only applies to regulars like me, there is a lot to enjoy on the standard fare.
Ordered the beet salad & added prawns. The prawns were delicious and quite large.
Excellent food. Good service but slow
We took some friends who had never been and they declare it their favorite and they are foodies. Great atmosphere even when inside instead of the lovely outdoor patio. The pork medallions are outstanding. The seafood linguini i had for the first time and it was light and tasty. The linguini with sausage and pepper with cream sauce was declared excellent. The bread is way too good. Carpaccio appetizer was also good. And they always have good wine specials which we thoroughly enjoyed.
Compliments to the chef! Dinner was fantastic…we celebrate our anniversary there every year and it has never disappointed us. Staff very professional and overall positive experience….
What a great restaurant. Great service and incredible food. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Understanding COVID times present new and interesting challenges in the restaurant and service industries, my experience at Ristorante Paradiso was far from paradise.
I'll start with the food, which was exceptionally delicious. I had the gnocchi with sausage and my husband had the lasagna. Both were seasoned perfectly, with mouth-watering acidic tomato sauces. His was ultra cheesy, with enough browning on the cheesy top and edges to give that toasted flavor and yummy chew.
It was the service from our server which really fell short. We waited nearly 10 minutes for our server to greet us, which I understand if the place is short-staffed, but it seemed when we declined to order alcohol or appetizers he decided we weren't worth his time.
We could barely hear him over the mask as he quickly and unenthusiastically recited the day's specials. After we ordered our entrees, he disappeared, never to be seen from again until long after we finished our meals.
In fact, he disappeared so long that he left our meals at the kitchen window and one of the runners had to bring our food to us when the kitchen window became too crowded for more plates. We weren't even offered fresh pepper.
And when I needed a takeout box to package up our leftovers our server tossed one my way and disappeared again (while I later watched him package up another table's leftovers).
I ordered tiramisu to-go and when I got back to our hotel I realized he didn't provide us with any utensils, so that was fun.
I will say the support staff was exceptional, though not exactly attentive (which is fine, that's not their job). They were clearing tables and refilling waters like Olympic athletes in a 100-meter sprint. Our server, on the other hand, was not even on the track.
I'd like to go back here because the food was so good, but I can't in good conscience spend money in a place that cared so little about my experience. Maybe takeout is the way to go for this place? I'll never know.
I love, love, love this restaurant! It is my favorite Italian in Kirkland. I had out of town guests that I wanted to take. Called day before for a reservation at 6 or 7p.m. They said they were all booked up until 8:45 p.m. I waited about an hour and tried back to see if there was a cancellation, got the same answer 8:45 p.m. So, started looking elsewhere and disappointed that I was not going to be able to take my friends for dinner at a time they could do. After looking for something else, I decided to go on OpenTable for a reservation. Low and behold!!! Many time slots available. Picked 6:30 and received confirmation. Unbelievable to me a restaurant would do this!!! Food was not as good as usual, pasta vongole in white wine sauce was very dry, 2 people ordered. The lasagne was good he said! Server who brought our dinners set them on the table and left quickly. Did not ask if we wanted anything else. Everyone seemed over-whelmed which made for not such a great experience this time. :(
Always wonderful service and great food. A staple in the Kirkland community.
Little pricey but great food and nice ambience!! Loving the white linen covered tables, nice touch!!
Love this restaurant but service not up to par tonight.
The service was terrible from the checking (guy) very rude
It took the waiter 40 min before taking our drink order
The restaurant was was chaotic- created by the staff running around - not really knowing what they are doing
The food is wonderful! I've never had a bad meal here. The service is a bit slow but maybe they are under staffed. Seems to be a problem every where.
Date night and decided to try a new place. Paradiso is small, intimate and the food is fantastic.
The food was mediocre. Pasta not well cooked, white wine flavor not showing much either. Hand sanitizer not provided at the table, which is concerning.
One of the best restaurants in Kirkland. A bit small and can get loud but worth it. Great vibe and amazing dishes. Enjoy!
Love Ristorante Paradiso. Food is always good. The bread is way too good. Hard to resist. I had pork tenderloins which were excellent. Pasta dishes always good. Wine list is decent. Service is good too. Sitting outside is first come first serve but we usually get a spot. Highly recommend.
Date Night at Paradiso. We had the daily specials, Rack of Lamb and Halibut Pomodoro. Both were delicious, as was the appetizer of beef carpaccio. The restaurant was busy and a bit louder than normal due to some loud larger groups. Gotta teach adults to use their indoor voices and not have phone conversations in a restaurant! Great, professional service with Jesus! Thanks for a fun evening.
The wine selection was not as good.. only 3pr 4 wines are offered by the glass. no Pinot , The majority of the wine is domestic. Looking for Italian French or wine from Spain not many there on their extensive list.
The restaurant was extremely busy last night (Sunday). Consequently, this impacted our service. Nevertheless, the cocktails and food were excellent and the water was very gracious - especially given that he and the other wait staff were on overload.
We would certainly return.
Overall good good and reasonable pricing. The server was a bit slow at first but then picked it up.
