Our first visit to this wonderful restaurant won't be the last. The service was outstanding, the food wonderful, atmosphere very relaxing. Our server was not pushy or rude as you find in many fine dining restaurants. The portions of the gourmet food was also a pleasant surprise, most restaurants have a beautiful presentation, but very little real food. The Paon had a beautiful presentation and the food portions were great, even took some home! Prices for the food seemed reasonable given the taste, selections and portions.

Paon is a wonderful restaurant. The food is very good The service is excellent. it is definitely a great place to go anytime you have the opportunity. We felt it is among the best restaurants in San Diego. We had the corn soup and beet salad for starters and both were excellent. We had a couple of the specials for dinner and they were just delicious. They have a wonderful wine list for any price because there is a wine store (and bar) next door so you can get the bottle at retail and then they add a small corkage charge. If you are close by, just go and know you will be having a wonderful treat for dinner.

Hubby took me here for my Birthday. We live up the street but didn't have a reservation and were treated as such... long wait for dinner and then a super snobby waitress when we were finally seated. The food was good but we won't likely be going back.
