“Exquisite food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Three of us went to Paramount Grille for dinner. We all ate different entrees, and every one was superb. The chef is very creative, but retains the simplicity and full flavor of every fresh ingredient. It was a wonderful dining experience.

“What a Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Went with family for Thanksgiving dinner. Reservations a must. There was a set menu and it was delicious. Chef/owner Cliff and his staff hit the right note with service and atmosphere. The restaurant didn't feel fancy, but sophisticated in a way I had not ever found when dining out on visits over the years to Gainesville. Would love to try the Sunday Brunch.

“Pretty place downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Very nice gormet restaurant in downtown Gainesville. Small and upscale and the food is excellent. Wish it were closer to our home.

“Perfect romantic dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Our 35th Anniversary dinner was celebrated at Paramount Grill. This is always our go-to place for special dinners for the two of us. We were not disappointed this time either. Always excellent service, atmosphere and food. The best "fancy" restaurant in Gainesville. Don't miss it.
