Went last night for early dinner before the Giants game. Pretty crowded, but managed to get a table for the 4 of us. One hostess was rude, twirling her hair whether deciding to seat us. The other hostess was very nice and led us to a table. The server was great. We had garlic fries, calamari for appetizers they were... More

It's expected this place would be a little pricey being downtown, especially for just lunch. But the food was great, people were friendly, and the place was nice. A few more items on the menu might have been nice. Also, they closed kind of early for being next to ATT park on the fireworks night..

6 of us for lunch mid week. Great salads, huge burgers, super hot wings and all well cooked, good service. A really good local to drop in for some food or just a drink. Definitely worth trying if you are the vicinity.

Last week my company had a private holiday party at Paragon's GALLERY room with a buffet in their library. This was the most hassle free and easiest, tastiest place in memory to have our holiday party with 45 guests. Servers were attentive and not intrusive. We also enjoyed the fact that we weren't rushed out of their with a cut-off... More

My husband and I had not realised it was Thanksgiving and that most restaurants and shops are closed that day. So I was glad to be able to get a reservation online for dinner. The set price seemed reasonable at first. However the meal, even though it was nice, was not worth the price. Added to that 2 glasses of... More

I come here a lot as I live close by. The beer selection is amazing and the service is outstanding. Decent price point and bbq night on Wednesdays mixes things up!

I have to say I was disappointed. They got a little too creative with the concept of a waldorf salad and turned it into waldorf soup.

I guess I didn't expect great things meeting our daughter for lunch at an outdoor table here, near ATT Park. But we were pleasantly surprised by the taste and freshness of the food, the good unobtrusive service, and the easygoing willingness of our waiter to guide my gluten free wife through the choices. For my part, the Gem Waldorf salad... More
