“This little culinary secret...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

This little culinary secret is off the 5 freeway at Rancho Santa Fe, on the Del Mar border.
The food is very good and the ambiance is pleasant.
The garlic fries are delicious.
Have never had a better burger than at this restaurant.
Very close to the Del Mar Race Track.

“A Casual California Style Restaurant that's always comfortable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

The Paradise offers a great menu of appetizers: firecracker shrimp, macadamia nut dusted calamari, ahi poke crisps, lovely salads, brick oven pizza, and a variety of burgers, fish, chicken, meat and pasta dishes. We love to sit at both bars and outside...servers are friendly and non-fussy. They offer a great happy hour with many martini and wine selections.

Hope they have gotten better but the times we went the service was some of the worse we have received.

“A Fabulous Thanksgiving Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2009

We ate Thanksgiving dinner at the Paradise Grille and had a wonderful experience. There were 9 adults, an infant and a toddler eating at 4:00 pm. Our table in the courtyard was very comfortable. Our server, Tanya, was a true professional and was very attentive. The owner, Conner, made us feel like one of his family. Teddy, the bar manager, gave us recommendations on wine pairings that were excellent. The turkey dinner melted in our mouths. Everyone raved about the food. I'm not sure that I will be able to get my wife to prepare the traditional Thanksgiving dinner in the future. She and the family loved being spoiled and not having to clean up. We will return to this "paradise" often when we visit our children in Southern California.
