We has a wonderful Mother's Day brunch. My mother-in-law had Greek eggs with lamb chops, which she said were "just right." My wife had smoked salmon Benedict- I tried a bit and it was yummy. My son and I had crabcake Benedicts, which are the perfect Bay-country elegant comfort breakfast. The decor is pleasent without being obtrusive. The noise level made for comfortable conversation. Our server was attentive, professional, and pleasant. Paul's is going to be one of our main places for special occasions from now on.

When I mentioned that I'd made the reservation, my girlfriend said, "Great, we ought to go to Paul's more often." As usual, she's right. We've been to Paul's a dozen times or more, which is a statement in itself. The food is terrific and the menu varies sufficiently that there always are several options we've not yet tried. The service is outstanding. The wine menu is solid and usually has a couple of surprises. (Your waiter/waitress can recite specifics about pretty near everything on the wine list.) The bar is small -- six or eight stools? -- and every time we have dinner there it reminds me that someday I want to come back to have drinks. It's a cozy place, slight off the beaten track in Annapolis. Every time we pull into the parking lot, however, it's filled to overflowing. That tells you something: people keep coming back. And I plan to follow my girlfriend's advice to get there more frequently.

Very fresh and tasty food! I had the Caesar salad and Chipotle Salmon for dinner - both were excellent! Prices are reasonable for what you get - especially in Annapolis- and they do offer parking. Truly enjoyed my time with my friend; service was also very good. ✅✅✅😀

We visited Paul's for Sunday brunch to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant wasn't busy which gave our visit a leisurely feel. The seafood omelette was delicious but the filet minion eggs benedict was disappointing. The eggs were over cooked and the steak was very small and their was not enough sauce on the eggs. We were there to celebrate a birthday which was noted on the open table reservation but the restaurant did not do anything special to add to our celebration which is what I expected. So a little disappointing. We will eat here again but not for brunch.

We love Paul's for its superb cuisine, selective wine list, good art, and overall ambiance. It's our restaurant of choice when out-of-town guests visit. The noise level can vary however, depending on time of day and location of table. This past Saturday, we were seated in the front room, next to the front window and across from a table of 4 with very loud patrons. The noise level unfortunately marred what would have otherwise been a perfect meal. After half the tables left, the noise became manageable, so we lingered over delicious desserts and coffee. Advice to others: if you desire less noise, perhaps ask to be seated on the second level, or in the two-story portion where the sound has more room to travel.

I loved everything: the food, the service, the atmosphere. Our server was helpful and personable but not hovering. He stuck a candle in my dessert for my birthday and made sure someone sang. My friends and I ordered the meze platters, and we were surprised by the amount of food. Our dinners and dessert were delicious.

Paul's Homewood Cafe was a great find. I made reservation for 1:45 pm on Sunday. The restaurant stops taking customers at 2 pm but if you are seated, they don't rush you for closing. The service was great; attentive and friendly. Food was deliciousl; fresh seafood, poached eggs cooked just before serving, and well flavored home fries.

Having parking behind the restaurant was also a plus.

I would definitely go back.

One of many visits to this favorite eatery. First time to be upstairs. Food and service is always impeccable. Only "concern" is that a large TV dominates the eating area. So unnecessary. I asked to have it turned off and, fortunately, the other occupied table did not object. I know that TVs in a bar area are a necessary evil but can't people eat and enjoy each other's company without everpresent technology?

We enjoyed out pretheatre dinner. Good menu choices and wine list was very good. Chicken Souvlaki was excellent along with Greek salad. The baclava was very good.
Wait staff was polite, cheerful and attentive even though it was a very busy evening and a full crowd.
Overall, a nice experience in a good quality Greek restaurant.
