Amazing food, nice environment and good experience. I had a really good green salad as starter, delicious wild salmon and amazing cremè brulée. It was not cheap ($48) but worth it. I strongly recommend it.

glad to see that so many people appreciate the good food and service; whenever we've been here it has a fair to full crowd. reservations are recommended. all of the dishes are well prepared and serviced hot. I just find the prices a little on the high side for this location and types of dishes served - but still worth... More

It seemed like an unlikely place for such a good restaurant, but everyone in our group of eight loved the food and the service. We started off with multiple appetizers and all were good. The mussels were the best I had ever tasted. My main course was roasted duck risotto and it was prepared excellently - moist but not greasy,... More

This is the place to go to get excellent food in the East Bay. I have frequent this restaurant several times with friends and solo. The service is excellent. Not much more to say than I love this place when I want a great meal and not risk disappointment.

We went to Paradiso because of a recommendation of a friend. It was a great experience with wonderful food. My wife is gluten and dairy-free in her diet but there were a variety of dinner menu items that she could choose from. The food was creative and delicious. It is now one of our favorite places. We will return again... More

The location is far from downtown next to a residential area. It was a Thursday night. When the three of us arrived, it was very busy and although we had a reservation for 7:45 pm we waited about ten minutes. There was lot of activity and noise. Our waitress was polite and friendly. We were seated on stools and high... More

We had a gathering with our neighbors and the food and service were very good and we all had a great time. They served us each a blueberry scone which was delicious. Some of the items we ordered were salmon benedict, souffle pancake, prime rib sandwich, kobe burger, breakfast pizza and shortrib hash with eggs. All were very hearty and... More
