The restaurant ambiance is lovely, the service was friendly and the food was amazing. We were seated right away at a remote little table for two, and our waitress couldn't have been nicer. She never rushed us and we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves.
It's a fabulous place for drinks and romance.

Enjoyed a drink and appetizers here a few weeks ago. It was a Friday evening and there was a nice jazz band (not sure how often the band is there). The drinks were good, and the appetizers were great. Nice place to hang out if you're looking for an evening out in downtown San Jose.

The restaurant itself and the service was good, however, the food was terrible. The servings were small, the steak was tough and of very low quality, and the fish was dry and overcooked. I will never eat at the Paragon Restaurant again!

We started with great drinks at the bar, and quick friendly service. It went downhill when the bartender wanted to argue over closing the tab out before we were seated for dinner. We were seated, and received menus - it took 20 minutes

Pros: Good Bar Service, good drinks

I will keep this short and simple. The food is outstanding and the service is great! \r
It is posh enough to impress the toughest food critic and down to earth enough to take your grandmother. The PotRoast is to die for as is the Sea

Nice place to grab a bite before going out! Good drinks and appetizers very reasonably priced. Nice outdoor seating with firepit and live music. Relaxing atmosphere, doesn't feel like your in a city.

Quite chic without being too expensive. Decor is gorgeous! Food is creative, not cloyingly cute (Loved the Mac & Cheese) House drinks are delicious (Try the Ginger and Pomegranate Martini) We had the bread pudding for desert & will be back

I went here for a friend's birthday dinner. I was pleasantly surprised by the staff's hospitality. The environment is very chic/elegant. I had the hanger steak chef's special which I would recommend to anyone ($20). The appetizer oysters

I run a dining club and am always looking for great places...this was not one of them. Though the setting is very swank and sexy, there is nothing else nice I can really say. The food was bland to bad, more than half of the people didn't

Still in search of GREAT dining in the South Bay.
This place has potential to be fantastic due to the location, ambiance, and service.
But food was so AVERAGE. What a waste!

The patio looks like a great place to dine or hang out during the summer. The inside is very chic- dim lighting, trendy crowd. In the evenings, there's live jazz, which is a nice touch. Food was good- my husband and I both had seafood
