My boyfriend and I spent the NYE at the Paramount. The ticket cost £250 per person including 7 course dinner and drinks for the whole night. We thought it was a bit expensive but wanted something special. The views are indeed spectacular over London but that was the only high point of the evening. We had been squeezed in on... More

We enjoyed our cocktails and unfortunately had just come from lunch at Riccardo's, which meant we were not able to try the food but the cocktails, brandy and ginger ale were delicious and strong enough. Suzi had the white viognier to follow, which she enjoyed and I tasted, chilled to perfection. The staff were friendly and helpful and nothing was... More

Paramount Bar in the Centre Point Building is incredible. Best rooftop bar in London...my personal opinion. Staff friendly, a little slow, but the views and the company you bring with you, will make up for it. I also hit the restaurant for breakfast sometimes to see the views during the day.

You would think the food tastes great here but you will be wrong. You are basically just paying for the view. Food here is horrible. Not worth it. Just go to the Shard, better food and same price.

I recently visited Paramount with my dad for a celebratory birthday meal. The restaurant itself is easy to get to, we took the train to Tottenham Court Road station and the entrance is located next to the station exit. If you book a table in advance make sure to ask for a window seat as the views are really great.... More

We visited this restaurant after an evening visit to the theatre. Set up on a high floor, the night view over London was fantastic. However, the lighting inside this restaurant was so dark that it made it difficult to read the menu. The food was ok but pricey. Unfortunately there were insufficient waiting staff and, whilst I appreciate that we... More

is the only way i can describe the 25 pounds duck with vegetables i ordered. Duck was chewy, bland, under seasoned, vegetables utterly insipid and the bread tasteless. You have to expect so much more for this kind of price. The restaurant generally feels run down and like being at the top of blackpool tower, with admittedly impressive but after... More

We originally booked a table for two but our friends wanted to join us and even though it was the last Friday before Xmas the Paramount changed our booking. The food was amazing as were the views over London. We plan to make it an annual event. We had an absolutely brilliant time. Thanks Paramount, we'll be back.

I'd been looking forward to coming here, but unfortunately was left feeling very disappointed. The only positive about this place is the views. I didn't like anything else. I've listed my main gripes below: 1. Too dark! Could barely read the menus, particularly up in the viewing gallery where we had a drink. Perhaps this is deliberate so you can't... More

Went there a part of a party. Had a minimum spend. We did have a dedicated waiter which helped but it was so dark in there and it's so narrow It's difficult to get in there at the moment as the whole building is surrounded in scaffolding - so it's clearly mid fit out The plus point really is the...
