Our menu and bar program are influenced by French classics, yet dictated by the seasonal bounty of the Sacramento region. Originally established in 1983, the restaurant underwent an extensive remodel in 2015, combining both modern and traditional elements to create a relaxed, timeless environment that lets the food and drinks take center stage. The light and airy interior opens up to the renowned dining patio that features waterfalls, 60 year-old olive trees and a large fireplace.

Charming, delightful staff, nice Prix Fixe

Stopped in to try a new restaurant during Dine Downtown. Luckily had reservations because they were very busy (expected for a Friday night) and we did have to wait a little at the crowded bar. Staff were all extremely pleasant and apologetic for the wait. Prix fixe menu was interesting with a lot... read 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...

Last Saturday night my husband and I were coming back from another event when we thought -- "hey lets eat here in Sacramento" so I got on the phone and called and we were able to get in without a reservation at the last minute. I didn't think that would be possible knowing they had just remodeled and they just... More

The newly renovated Paragary's is still finding its feet . . . the new decor, hard tiles, walls, a focus on black-and-white, raises the noise to a conversation-impossible level. In the early weeks there is a happening bar scene, and the see-and-be-seen crowd are very present, but this may not be sustainable. The outdoor dining area is lovely and may... More

We can't wait for their major remodel to be completed in August, so that we can continue to enjoy food, staff, and patio...our favorite spot in Sacramento!

Paragary's used to be a four-starish restaurant with good food, decent ambiance, and relatively knowledgable service. But the decline is embarrassing (for someone who took an out-of-town party there.) I'm reluctant to click the "outdoor seating" checkbox, because, although the patio is lovely, access to it is cryptic. I called to reserve a spot on the patio for six, and... More

We visited Paragary's for their $25 Prixe Fixe dinner. The food was delightful, interesting, best of the local seasonal offerings and seafood. It was about 103 degrees outside so no one was on the patio. we started with a Kir Royale and a Blood Orange Margarita. The drinks were good but nothing outstanding. My wife loved the squid and watermelon... More
