Great sandwiches – I've only had the grilled chicken breast sandwich, but it was delicious. I'll definitely be back for more.
paragon!! – I had Birthday at Paragon 8*8*09. What a mess! The food was great my server Sarah was great... BUT her co-worker would like to say Melissa is her name or the sloppy mess from hell, dropped a chk book made a scene as she picked it up then she herself sat on the dinner room floor, Yes on the floor 2:30 int he afternoon fussed around then got up hands on floor pushed herself up and picked her weggie and went about her buisness, I don't think she realized that she is the food industry and someones always watching. The saddest part about all this is the Mgr Paul was actually about a foot away from her and nothing was said AT ALL. Aint that some *#@!
Saddly sad wont be back for a bit and hopfuly she longer in the Industry!!
worst service on thayer – I ordered ice tea, it was just terrible. I couldn't drink and I asked syrup, they had the syrup only for pancake. How can they serve ice tea without syrup? I told the waitress that I couldn't drink, then she said "It's okay." I thought she was nice enough not to charge ice tea but she did charge and was not nice at all! She even didn't ask why I couldn't drink etc. Just say okay and charge! It is not OKAY! The manager passed by, so I told him the story but basically his attitude was the same. I would never go there again and would not recommend this place. They just don't know the basis manner of serving, even the manager!
Awesome food, entertaining staff – Dropped in on my way to Boston from PVD airport. Picked them at random from Citysearch. Recent remodeling of the back bar looked pleasently sophisticated. Ken was working the bar and made everyone feel at home. The mussels were fantastic - a little small compared with the monsters I got at Legal Seafood a couple days later, but they tasted better - perfect even and were cooked exactly right. After the mussels I expected the french burger to be a let down, but it wasn't. I tried to avoid stuffing myself but I kept reaching back for one more bite until it was gone. I'd come back in a heartbeat.
Editorial Review by Christy Buena – Mediterranean-influenced and American cuisine is served at the restaurant that offers soups, salads and sandwiches and an extensive wine list.
Still one of the best – Paragon remains one of my favorite restaurants in Providence and is still one of the more reasonably priced. The food is consistently terrific and is perfect for bringing a large group of people to, since you can get everything from a burger (which are great) to a fancy pasta dish (the lobster ravioli with shrimp and swordfish is the best deal in Providence).
cool place – i really like paragon. the food's consistently good, you can almost always get a table or atleast find room at the bar and it just has a nice upbeat, young vibe.
one of my favorites – This is the one place I always try to take visitors to because it is so good! I've tried the pizza and the pasta, but by far my favorites are the burgers and the chicken sandwich with peppers and mozzarella! The french fries and mashed potatoes are also delicious. Parking can be a hassle but the trip is always worth it!
Best burger! – What a deal -- a fantastic burger and fries at a low price, in a real restaurant that can accomodate children, friendly dates, business conversation or a large group of friends. The rest of the menu is okay (I've had good pasta and salads, and mediocre pizza) but it is the burgers that shine.
Excellent Food – Cafe Paragon is one of the best restaurants in Providence. The food is excellent, especially the french fries. I'd say that most meals are from $6-$10, which is worth the price because they give you a lot of food. The decor is very stylish and new age, and the atmosphere is very appealing. The only negative is that on Friday and Saturday nights you usually have to wait at least 20 minutes before being seated.
