Chicken salad and angus burger was fabulous. Almost too much for my husband and me. We thoroughly enjoyed lunch our first time here as business travelers to this area we will definitely return. Highly recommend!

Last year, our adult daughter and our grandson joined us for a delightful Mothers Day brunch at the Paramount Grill in Gainesville, Florida. Our experience started off with delicious mimosas and an attentive and friendly wait staff. This jewel offers cozy ambiance and surprisingly gourmet fare. We are back again this year (reservations in place) and can't wait to taste... More

The atmosphere was pleasant, with with tablecloths and candles on the table. The food portions were ample and beautifully presented. My husband had the duck dish, our friend had the salmon, and I had the lobster dish. Everything was delicious--not something available at many restaurants. It was quiet so we could enjoy our conversation. The waiter provided excellent service.

We waited in the cold outside for about 30 minutes past our reservation time. When we were finally seated, almost everything on the menu was unavailable. The service was slow and the food came out one dish at a time for a table of six. As if this wasn't bad enough, we were billed over $100. Fortunately, my husband always... More

We have eaten many great meals here, always served with style, but never pretentious. The chef and owner is always there and works very hard--it's a hands-on operation for him, and it shows in the quality and innovative ness of the results. This is the place to take a client or interviewee for a meal because it is such a... More

Four friends celebrated their holiday season birthdays with a wonderful dinner at the Paramount Grill. Everyone was delighted with their choice of entree. One diner, whose family raised ducks, proclaimed his meal the best duck he had ever eaten! Another who chose the tofu was correctly advised as to the heat of the curry seasoning by the server and the... More

It was the only restaurant in Gainesville, Florida that was serving Thanksgiving. After a mix-up in our reservations and changing tables, we could not ask for a better meal. We chose from traditional turkey to venison/buffalo meatloaf. Great variety and lots of food. Also included was bruschetta, homemade muffins, garden salad, and berry cobbler for dessert. Nice selection of wine... More
