I really wanted to love Paon, but after two visits, I can't wholeheartedly recommend it.
First, the positives: the service and ambiance are excellent. It's a beautiful restaurant and every staff member we encountered was on point in terms of courtesy and professionalism.
This is a "date night" restaurant for me. The food and service is excellent and the wine list is outstanding. It's pricey for my budget, but it's worth it. I always dine outside under the covered patio...it's well designed and quiet.
Ladies group loves happy hour here. Service and food especially short ribs are
