We love this place. They have a great selection and my wife loves the gluten free items. A must place to experience!

We had 2 different groups of relatives into town back to back. Everyone of the first were very pleased. In the second group was a daughter from the East Coast, vegetarian, a CEO and truly a world traveler. My wife and I split a delicious wedge of lettuce, various appetizers were shared; included were finely battered Calmata. The vegetarian and... More

This place is amazing. No matter what we try it's never been a bad experience. Chicken Paradiso is crave-able, rich decadent sauce, juicy chicken, fresh veggie pairings always a win. Though I am no wine connoisseur their selection is quite impressive. Come to San Leandro in the East Bay Area, it's worth your time and the drive.

My boyfriend and I had our anniversary dinner here a few days ago. The restaurant is very charming and has a great feel. The hosts and servers were wonderful throughout our whole dinner, and made the experience positive. We started with the crab and avocado appetizers, which was a generous portion of delicious, fresh lump crab. I ordered the lamb... More

The food was excellent and the wait staff attentive, but with a maximum seating on New Year's Eve, I found the room congested and probably at the limit of seating capacity. Well known as the best restaurant in San Leandro, I found it to be priced more like a great restaurant in San Francisco or Los Angeles. Without any alcoholic... More

I'll start out to say I would have given an additional 5th star if the prices were better. They seem to be a tad on the expensive side for San Leandro. I waited to do this review until going there a 2nd time with friends that I met for dinner who live in the area. They also tend to rate... More

That's what we'd heard anyway... and to be honest, without trying them all in just 3 days there, they're probably right. That afternoon we made reservations though OpenTable for 6 at 8:30 and arrived on time to a packed restaurant. We sat at the bar for a round of drinks. Within approximately 20 minutes we were escorted to our table... More

I had dinner with a couple of my clients at Paradiso and I was pleasantly surprised. The service was great. The food and wine were fantastic. I ordered a seafood entree. The seafood was fresh and it was cooked to perfection. The entree's are on the pricey side and parking is awful. But, overall I enjoyed myself and would definitely... More
