I was greeted by the matire de with a smile and was seated immediately. The atmosphere and decor is very respectfully designed. My waiter was very courtesy and explained the special of the day. I order the steak ala mama with a house salad and baked potato. The steak was cooked exactly as I order medium rare and was one... More

We recently attended a fund-raising event for the local Alzheimer's Association. There were four different food stations all containing foods that most people have never eaten. (smoked duck, stingray wings, wild boar and buffalo). Everything was incredible. The stingray wings were flash fried and topped with a lemon caper sauce with almonds. The wild boar was in a stew and... More

Paulo's is always a good dining experience. The food is well prepared and always fresh. The seafood specials are always a go to favorite but the Portugese bread pudding is worth saving room! This is a gem in the metro east area and is a great place for a date night or a family get together.

I recently dined at Paulo's with a large group for business and was informed how nice the place is... I was not disappointed in the atmosphere, décor, service or overall experience. On arrival into the establishment we were greeted by the maître de as well as Paulo behind the bar. Very nice to be welcomed that way. Drinks in a... More

I have been to the Mansion many times and I am always blown away by the consistently high quality of the meal and service. Yes, there are many great steak places in the area, but without question this is the best. The meat is perfect, accompaniments supurb, service exception and atmosphere comfortable and inviting. A date? Perfect and can be... More

This is my absolute favorite restaurant in the area. I have recently requested this as my birthday dinner spot to my husband! We have been a couple times in the last year. The food is amazing! Although I usually get the same thing, we have tried different appetizers and they have all been fantastic. I cannot give this restaurant enough... More

Only a few miles off I-64 and a few miles from Scott AFB - a colleague found this beautiful and historic mansion. Menu looked interesting so we found our way over (a few tricky turns) and it exceeded our initial impression. Beautiful restored 1857 wheat plantation home with a large bar and several dining rooms. Service was excellent and server... More

The surf and turf was wonderful with the meat being prepared just right. They were very accommodating in substituting potatoes for Brussels sprouts which were awesome. Paulo's was suggested to us by one of our threesome who lives nearby and knows we like locally owned places. We were certainly impressed. It is conducive to conversation. The atmosphere and decor are... More

The decor promises a much more impressive meal than they had to offer. The menu is prosaic. I had trouble deciding what to order because none of it looked terribly appealing. Nevertheless, I ordered Caesar Salad and a Pasta Primavera (though they called it something else). The salad was soaked in bottled dressing and contained little else. I noted that... More
