Paula's is as good or better than any seafood I have had on Cape Cod or the coast of New England. We go there to eat several times a year and have always been extremely happy with the food and service.

We have made reservations for 6. The food is very expensive, the wait staff was ok, but never came back and asked if we wanted desert, coffee, etc. Forced us to sit at two little round tables pushed together for 6 people when there was an empty table large enough for us. Refused to honor our request for a larger... More

The last time we came here the menu was a little different. The sides were all at an extra charge. Now it is much nicer, it is included with your dinner. Calamari for an appetizer and fish and Scallops for dinner. We had drinks. Everything was amazingly good. They do take reservations, but I think there was someone who just... More

My wife and I visited while in the city for a job interview. We liked that you enter through their seafood market, where you can see just how fresh everything is and watch as the chefs prepare the meals. We sat down and I ordered a Manhattan, while my wife ordered a glass of red wine. The Manhattan was expertly... More

This is the place for great seafood. There specials are to die for. I was never a fish, seafood eater till I went here with friends. It's one of my favorite places to eat in Ft. Wayne now.

Our party of five had lunch on a weekday at the end of the "lunch rush". Our service was quite good. My order included a starter salad and the seasonal walleye with a side of pasta salad. The starter salad was tasty, but did not have enough cheese and was not worth the $6 price tag. The walleye was okay,... More

My husband and I both enjoyed our dinners, sea bass for him and the seafood combo for me. Fresh and tasty, which can be difficult to do with seafood in Indiana. Our server was attentive and very pleasant. We appreciate the ability to enjoy wonderful food and drinks (the lemon blueberry drop martini is amazing) and be able to talk... More

I like Paula's food. It is excellent. Tasty, good flavor combinations, good wine selections with some of my favorites. However, the entire experience is just not all that, yet they think it is. The service is satisfactory most of the time, nothing more. I always feel like I am not truly welcomed but they will let me join them for... More

Paula's seafood restaurant is a wonderful place to dine. It's ambiance is casual, yet not noisy or pretentious. The seafood is top quality. As you enter, the fresh seafood is displayed in a case so that you can see how fresh it all is. The menu is varied, the wine and beer list is adequate. I thoroughly enjoyed my entree.

Thank Helen G
