We took my dad and step-mom here for an early Father's Day dinner. The service was impeccable as always, and the salads were excellent. We love their Gorgonzola dressing. Their chilled Raspberry soup was on the menu. It is excellent, not sweet but rich. But we opted for the salad this time. We all had the Copper River salmon. It... More

We once again enjoyed our dinner at Paolo's. This is not fast food. Every meal is made to order. I appreciate that service. If a dish comes with something in it that I don't like, I just tell them to leave it out and they do without a problem. The service was great tonight. I will enjoy the rest of... More

we eat here at least 5 times per year. our family dines out often and we like to try various cuisine, but it is hard to always find good restaurants, close to home. Paolo's keeps us from the drive to Seattle, Tukwila, Tacoma, or Bellevue and is pretty good food. we love the gorgonzola dressing on the green salad and... More

First off the waiter didn't ask what brings us in today...6th of May. The appetizer was skimpy, it was brucshetta and didn't have all the pieces with tomato. The calamari is pan seared which is not as good as deep fried. My shrimp and pasta had a terrible tangy lemony based sauce. I specifically asked for garlic butter sauce. The... More

Love Paolo's, have been going there for years. Always excellent taste. They sometimes have live music on fridays and saturdays, can be busy but haven't ever waited more than 20min. They occasionally have 3 course dinner with beer or wine pairings that are super fun, sign up on the website to get emails. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Order... More

I've eaten here many times over the years and never been disappointed. The chef is excellent. Lunch, dinner, special brunches are all wonderful.

We had an excellent dinner with another couple. Food was great, service responsive but not hovering. We took advantage of the Early Bird menu which I believe is available from 4:30-6:00 PM.

We had dinner with another couple...they gave us plenty of time to visit. The food was very good. We had chicken fettuccini, which came with soup or a salad. If you're in a hurry, I would let them know as they left you alone unless you asked for them to come over.

Our experience was terrible. My wife and I went to eat there while they were not busy with only one table being used. It took 20 minutes to get seated. They did not take our drink order for another 15 minutes. The waitress came back 15 minutes later to take our dinner order- still waiting for our drinks. We got... More
