    You can't go wrong with a trip to Paragary's. One of Sacramento's classic, iconic restaurants, the menu is reliable and always well executed, the décor is stylish and beautiful (BEST OUTDOOR DINING SPACE IN TOWN), and the service staff is friendly and approachable. This most recent visit was for brunch, and I had forgotten how much I love Paragary's hollandaise! The Bloody Mary was also a pleasant, savory surprise with a generous splash of horseradish and Worcestershire. With so many new restaurants in Sacramento to choose from these days, this visit to Paragary's reminds me that sometimes the OG can still be at the top.

    We had a calm lunch for a table of three. We were fortunate, less busy than usual because of the holiday weekend - to our advantage. Our serve was polite, knowledgable, and attentive even though she also had a larger group to serve as well at the time. The food was very good - eggs benedict, home potatoes, and also a cashew, cabbage chicken salad. Will return, but always first thing when opening on weekend or it gets quite busy.

    Service was slow to start. Waiter had a big table he needed to tend to. The bread was hard. The mushroom salad was delish and the sangria was excellent.

    The food was supreme. Our table enjoyed salmon, chicken, and steak entrees in the gorgeous patio. And or server was the best. She was efficient, joyful, and kind, which made for a perfect evening. Lastly, I appreciated the outside heaters. They kept us nice and toasty on that chilly night. Paragary’s is the best!

    Dinner at Paraguay’s is always very good. This evening we went specifically to order the butternut squash raviolis, a Fall specialty of theirs. The meal, along with a fine bottle of wine, was wonderful.

    Excellent brunch. Great food and service. I had the cheese with avocado and chopped chilis omelette which was perfect. My friend had the avocado toast with prosciutto and fried instead of poached eggs. I definitely want to return to try that! And the bartender made a delicious Ramos Fizz. Hard to find that classic brunch drink. Very busy. Reservation is a must for a Sunday brunch.

    The only issue was they rush you. Plates were cleared as we putting the last bite of good in our mouths. They seem more interested in table turnover than the customer’s dining experience. Poor showing if trying to be upscale and allow patrons to enjoy their meal

    For our 40th anniversary, we chose Paragary's, one of our favorite restaurants in Sacramento. We recently returned to Sacramento after moving to San Diego in 1985. The setting is beautiful, the food and wine delicious and the service exceptional. Thanks for sticking around all these years! And many more!!

    Sunday’s brunch menu was lacking. Several breakfast items, with nearly no lunch options. I was looking for a Paragary’s experience for a special occasion. The Cafe Bernardo up the street has a better selection for someone looking for a meal between 12:00 and 1:00. Mediocre would best describe the service. We were offered only one beverage service and had to ask for condiments twice. Apparently there’s a katsup/jam shortage so rationing is in affect. I won’t bother with a Paragary’s reservation again, as this was my second disappointment with the restaurant. There are many fine dining establishments in Sacramento. Paragary’s needs to regroup and rejoin that list.
