I highly recommend the rack of lamb and my wife loved the sea bass. Was recommended by a friend that goes to Par440 all the time and he was correct . Great vibe and very good service.

We live around the corner from this restaurant and did not have a positive experience in the past but we thought we would give it another shot. My husband ordered the prime rib and I had the tuna. The prime rib was over cooked and looked more like a rib steak than a prime rib. He sent it back and the next piece was properly cooked but the meat tasted like it was on the turn and he was afraid to eat it. I ordered the tuna that was also not edible. The food did not appear to be fresh. We paid our bill over $100.00 and took the food home for our dog. We then decided that we were afraid to feed it to the dog and threw it out. The restaurant sits on a golf course and is a beautiful space. The food is a huge disappointment and we will not go back. I hope no one gets sick from eating there.

Par 440 has been in operation for 4 years with no guest getting sick from any products, in fact due to the recent influx of business, we get fresh provisions near daily, nothing here is "spoiled". The owner tried the meat after and he's perfectly fine, perhaps ordering your food to be cooked with "extra garlic" tainted your palates. Also the fact that you decided to review bomb us across the board and not just because of the "food quality" means that this review belongs in the trash.

Food was pretty good, they have shortened their menu significantly which has improved the taste and quality of the food on their current menu. E.R.I.C., sings on Friday nights and is amazing.

I had the stuff shrimps with crab meat, did not like the crab meat and my daughters had salad that they did not enjoy. the drinks were amazing. keep up the good work on that.

Very different than expected, although not terrible. Less sophisticated than I imagined. Food was terrific, atmosphere was lively, a bit loud, more "bar" style. Disappointed to see patrons wearing hats and hoodies while at dinner. Service was slow, but they had a large party whom they tried to seat us at the end of their party. We moved our seat so not to be in between the multiple tables for the large party, which was better, but service was slow.

Loved this place. ERIC performed some oldies and had the place dancing at their seats. Food was amazing too; got the thai chili calamari app, crab cake sliders, and cheesecake Nutella empanadas for dessert. Will definitely be back soon!

I did not think they took COVID precautions very carefully. Workers were not properly masked. They also didn't specify indoor vs outdoor on Open Table which they should given the circumstances. They also had a pretty bad bee problem. That being said our waiter was very nice and the food was really good.

Love everything about Par 440 from the food to the service to the atmosphere. There’s something on the menu for everyone. It’s our go to and a favorite of ours. Added bonus is that there’s usually entertainment on the weekends. Highly recommend Par 440.

My dinner was not very good, had chicken parm and the chicken was tough. Don't know how you get chicken to be tough but it was. I would be very skeptical about ordering it again. However, my guest had the strip steak, and it was cooked exactly how she requested it to be and it was very tender. The service was excellent and the music with Julian and Domonique was also excellent. Nice atmosphere overall. However, they need to provide a larger dance area. I know they want to fit more tables to make more money, but the reality is they had a large crowd because of the live music and the fact that people can dance. Take that away and see what happens to their business. The dance area needs to be improved as well, the floor is pretty worn in the small area they have for dancing. The place is large, but only 6 or 7 couples can dance at a time; not a good situation.
