Food came out cold and with a hair in it. Then they put it in the microwave to reheat it. I have never gotten good service here. Then the waitress came out to tell us the managers wife passed and he can't talk to us. I felt like I was made to feel guilty because of the loss of his wife. That is a horrible thing that happened and my heart goes out to him and his family. That doesn't excuse hair in the food and no apology and a server who threw his hands in his face and ran off while leaving the table sitting there with hair on the plate.
excellent food, excellent service!!!...i had the crabcake dinner- they were the best crabcakes i have ever eaten...and they didn't even need tarter sauce...my side dish was the au gratin potatoes- pretty tasty and something different from the common baked potato, which i can easily make at home...each dinner came with salad or soup, as an appetizer...i choose the salad...it was a nice size, for a pre-meal salad...my honey choose the southwest bean soup for his appetizer item...i didn't taste it, but he seemed pleased...his main dish was the chicken parmigiana, which was very yummy, and broccoli...the glasses were small, but the waiter was happy to bring us our own pitcher of iced tea, so we didn't have to keep asking for refills...and the complimentary bread with herb butter was also super good (and limit-less, which is great for those that love bread : )...we choose not to have dessert, as we were both good and full from our meals, but i would have choosen the chocolate cake, had we given into our sweet-tooth cravings...the server was friendly and happily took our picture when i asked him to do so...i would recommend this restaurant and we will be going back again, when we are ready for another nice dinner out...

Well this place sucked in just about every way. A friend recommended this place for some ungodly reason, and after this I will never take his recommendation on anything again. I don't mind the fact that the place is the size of a shoebox, in fact in some cases, if the food is actually decent, it can be endearing (a la 'original pancake house' in chicago). But Paul's delivers barely edible food with servers that appear to come straight out of a West Virginia truck stop. They are truly ""the people that society forgot"". So I order french toast with ""fresh"" fruit and an orange juice. Well, the orange juice tasted like a weak Tang mix- or perhaps water with a squeeze of orange in it? Either way it was terrible and could not be considered ""orange juice"" as such. The fruit looked like it was delivered by boat from a shanty town in India- the strawberries, melon, kiwi and pineapple were all brown and looked rotted. I wouldn't even put it in my mouth it looked so bad. The french toast was worse than when my dad let me try and make it when I was 9 yrs old, but amazingly it was the high point of the meal (if you can call it a meal). I would have said something to the ""server"" (I use that term loosely) but it was clear that not only would it have fallen on deaf ears, but it would have been the subject of ridicule. So please please please avoid Paul's in Grandview, it is what I would like to call ""below the poverty line"" in terms of a dining experience. If this place were rated a 1 star, Denny's would be a 5 triple diamond.

This place is extremely unassuming but the food is really pretty good. My friend had the lasagna which looked amazing, the other friend had fettucine alfredo that was delicous. I had angel hair pasta with a meat sauce that was great. There is plenty of parking and the prices were decent.

We go to Pauls at least once a month. The pastas are average. I usually go for the specials and have been satisfied more times then not. The service is good and food is usually wonderful. I am not impressed with their patio, but they do not rely on their atmosphere like some other restaurants.

Paul's Fifth Avenue (formerly Paul's Pantry) is a comfy, cozy neighborhood café, where lots of regulars hang out. The food is great, but the real surprise comes at night, when Chef Eric Fladen creates his fabulous specials. I recently had the ""Salmon Strudel,"" which is a true masterpiece, both in taste and presentation. Puff pastry filled with salmon, scallops and spinach is sliced and arranged in a flower petal pattern, accompanied by two different-colored sauces and asparagus spears. Outstanding!
