This establishment was within walking distance from our Embassy Suites hotel downtown. The food was very, very good. They easily accommodated my wife's dairy and gluten intolerances.

I met a friend for a casual dinner in the bar and was happy to see that Paragon continues to serve up a great atmosphere and food. It was a fairly quiet Tuesday night and we were able to get a table immediately. Service was attentive and very friendly. I had a couple appetizers - crab cakes and Brussel sprouts... More

Paragon was on of the first restaurants in the Pearl nearly two decades ago. It is still one of the best with outstanding food, a great bar with a fireplace and over all very open atmosphere. Whenever we have dinner I always leave thinking "why don't we come here more often". Not pretentious - just a very nice relaxing place... More

We had a salad & scallops as an appetizer and the trout as main course - it was excellent. The wines per glass are so La la so would recommend to go for the bottles.

Decent food. Corned beef sandwich was not spicy at all, after our waiter warned us that it was extremely spicy. Service was quite slow.

Had an awesome holiday party. There were 16 of us in a private room with our own bar/bartender. The food was excellent. Service was fabulous. I would definately return for another great night!

My friend and I showed up for a late lunch on a Monday so it was kind of empty. I ordered the blackened snapper BLT sandwich which had a nice kick. Too many times blackened just means pepper but not here. And the thick maple bacon - yes please. Nice surprise. Also ordered the New Bad Habit and it was... More

Went there last evening - which was the third or fourth time I have been to Paragon. The food was great - the waitress rushed us and hovered too much. It was annoying.
