Very disappointed in the "NEW" Paragary's

Somewhat disappointed by their new price structure - we have been there before it was remodeled and the Happy Hour beverages and food were very reasonable - they no longer have a Happy Hour and beverages begin at $10 while food is at least $15. The place looks fabulous after remodeling, but left... read more

Our foursome meets monthly for lunch always at different restaurants. We were not disappointed. The food and service were good. The mushroom salad with jarlsberg cheese and a mild lemon and olive oil dressing, an old favorite, was as good as ever. I had Smoked Salmon Tartin. Egg salad with capers and herbs was topped with smoked salmon and served... More

The good: fresh from being closed for a year for renovations the decor is beautiful, the ambiance on the outdoor patio is grand, the cocktails are tasty and refreshing, & our server Jessica was awesome. The bad: we arrived for a 8:00 reservation and were not seated until at least 8:25. I seemed invisible to the hostess as she helped... More

Paragary's closed for about a year and a half for what everyone heard was a major redo of the restaurant and its menu. It recently reopened and since it had been a favorite of mine for many years a friend and I thought we should try the new version. The space is somewhat changed in that what had been the... More

If you are into uncomfortable seating this place is for you. The bar stools are plastic flat disc seats with no backs. The Dining seats are plastic chairs no cushions. We started outside which although pretty is a hot box no breeze whatsoever. We asked them to open the glass wall so some air would filter out. They said no... More

The bib lettuce salad was ok. Not many radishes. The mustard vinegarette was well done. We finished our salads at 5:45 but never got our entrees... More

This restaurant has been a mainstay for many years in Sacramento. The owner, Randy Paragary, owns many local restaurants and closed this restaurant and to do a $1 million remodel. It is newly opened. The facility is lovely. The former main dining room is now set aside for groups. The main room and patio are light and bright. I enjoyed... More

We arrived 5 minutes late for our 7PM reservation, party of four (we called to let them know we were having trouble parking). The hostess says, " we'll be getting a table for you". I asked for the patio and she says "whatever table comes up first", not the answer I wanted. We then hung around the bar for 40... More

Friends took me out to dinner for my birthday. I chose Paragary's as it was recently remodeled. The place looked great - light colors and very open and welcoming. The bar is in the same place and was crowded as was the dining area. Menu looked great. We ordered drinks, starters, salads, entrees and desserts. The food was ok, nothing... More

Newly redecorated and menu'd, Paragary, et al, has been in the business far too long to offer the kind of experience we received on this visit. Service was VERY slow, both bar and food, bar being the worst. Table service was also not good---slow and with order errors. We were largely ignored, empty glassware piled up on the table even...
