5th trip to Praga and still not a bad or even less than perfect experience! This time I tried the Escargot. I am by no means a snail lover but I had to find something wrong with this restaurant, wrong on my part. They were utterly amazing!!! I had the veal Marsala and it was the best I've... read more

The entrees are always special, and the wine selections are extensive. They have half price wine nights, and outdoor seating in the summer. We have been to Praga's many times and have always come away very pleased with the meals and experience.

We with my family. We ordered the calamari, it was over cooked. It was like chewing on rubber bands. I ordered the short ribs. Should have been called short rib. For $15 I got 1 rib, about 4 Brussel sprouts and a half cup of parsnip puree. The bone from the rib was bigger than my piece of meat. I... More

Yes, the food is good but they have added too many tables to a small area. We dined, with another couple, last night and it was extremely difficult to maintain a normal conversation. They did not have enough menus for the four of us. You could hear the conversation from the next table. Not a relaxing experience. We will definitely... More

Pavel and his wife are excellent chefs and hosts. We have eaten dinner there many times and have reserved the entire restaurant for a family celebration. They are attentive to every detail and treat their customers as valued guests. every dish is delicious!

My wife and I had the pleasure of eating dinner at this well run and tasty restaurant. They have a very good variety of entrees to choose from, and the service was as great as the food. Not fancy, but 5 star food and service. You will spend a bit, but worth every penny.

My husband and I dine at Praga every chance we get. We have never had anything but terrific food and great service. We have taken friends and family on many occasions and everyone has been pleased with this restaurant. The outside seating during the summer is very comfortable, shaded with large umbrellas. The inside seating is a little more formal,... More

Food was good when it finally arrived. Service just awful. Waited at the "please wait to be seated" sign and no one came! Finally noticed after we moved towards the tables. Waited for the table to be cleaned and still waited to be allowed to sit. Finally seated but no menu. Another 10+ minutes for a menu to arrive and... More
