We visited this restaurant previously and had a horrible service experience. After multiple mixups regarding who would be our server, we finally landed a good one. However, by that time the damage was already done. The crazy amount of time it took us to get our food made matters worse. Then we witnessed our server go to bat with the manager to get our meal comped. Because we really liked the restaurant vibe and the food was good, we decided to try it again. This time for lunch (first time was dinner). Service was great. Food was great. However, we got a notice from OpenTable that we were a “no show” for the reservation. This, after we told the greeter we had a reservation, gave our name and she seemed to “check us in.” Don’t know what happened there, but it appears to have been corrected. Moral of the story, the restaurant is in a great location, has a great vibe, and good, reasonably priced food. Jury’s still out on the competence of the staff and the quality of service you’ll get, but give it a try. Out of the two servers we’ve had on our two different visits, they were both top notch. In both cases, our issues seemed to begin and end with mixups at the door/host stand. First impressions are crucial, so they really may want to fix that weak link in their chain. More

Been a few times now and every time the service is better and better, seems it was just opening kinks. I’ve taken several clients and visitors now and the experience for them is astounding. Not to mention the Beef Brisket & Cheddar, the Mahi sandwich, and Chicken Club are delicious, so are their fries and boozy slushes. Parking across the street or attached plus getting through security was a breeze and employees nice. Can’t wait to go back. Fred the manager even stopped by to check out how the meal was the past 3 Times. Two thumbs up. More

FYI, the brussel sprouts appetizer is a must! Since we're there so often, the only thing we would like to see are a few additions to the menu. Other than that, it's a winner in our book! More

I've been to Paschal's off and on for several years for brunch/dinner with friends or for post-graduation parties. Today, I brought along several colleagues for a business lunch following a meeting at one of the nearby colleges. I was a bit worried about spotty service and possible long wait times, which I've experienced in the past. But today, everything was perfect! The service was great. Our server was extremely attentive and helpful. We had a reservation for 11:00, our group was the first to arrive that day; no wait for seating at all. This was the first visit for my colleagues and I was proud to share a bit of the West End flavor with them. As usual the chicken was hot, well-seasoned, and tasty. More
