Great service and professionalism throughout two dinner parties I have held here. The owner is amazing to work with; incorporating my budget, guests, and needs. Will come back here again and again, both for work events and personally. The separate room they have for parties is well lit, spacious, and they close the doors for privacy... very nice!

Brunch is one of my favorite meals and Paramount Grill is one of the best places in town for it. My French Toast was superb and goes wonderfully with a Mimosa. Really what makes Paramount special is the relaxed atmosphere. The staff allowed us to eat at our own pace, and we never felt rushed, which is fantastic because I... More

My favorite restaurant. The menu is frequently updated with new entrees. Everything is great including fish, steak, pork, duck, and chicken, and vegetarian. It can get a good Zagat rating!

My husband, college student daughter and I visited the Paramount Grill for the first time last Sunday. I had researched Gainesville restaurants prior to our visit and was looking forward to trying the Paramount since it had an interesting brunch menu and many favorable reviews from several rating sites. We arrived around 1:15, with brunch being served until 3 pm.... More

My son and I ate at the Paramount Grill in July and had an interesting meal. Each dish had multiple layers of different types of food, which I had never encountered before. We ate at 6:00 so the restaurant was pretty empty. We would definitely return to see what new and interesting dishes we encountered the next time.

I was excited to go to this restaurant based on the reviews from fellow TA reviewers, but was disappointed when we were finished there.. Maybe it was the fact that it was July....maybe it was because it was 8 pm.....nope.....I think it was because I was expecting more than I received, and I am afraid it was my fault. I... More

Our dining experience tonight was enjoyable in every way. This was the first time eating at this restaurant and both of us really glad that we picked it as our anniversary dinner. I had the salmon special, which was delicious. My husband had the pompano which he raved about and left nothing on his plate. We started with the beet... More

We had an awards dinner with 35 people in May and everyone was extremely pleased. They have an amazing staff who are cordial, helpful and accommodating no matter what is asked of them, which makes for an even more delightful experience. We will be returning again for more functions.

I had and very nice dinner there. The food was well prepared and the dining room was well kept clean and nicely decorated. The seafood is better than many places in this area.
