Description: Located in the vibrant and historic Downtown Gainesville, Florida, the heart of the city. For over 10 years Clif Nelson, chef and owner of Paramount Grill, has been serving unique and innovative cuisine. Our wait staff is attentive without being intrusive. We use only the best, freshest ingredients and most everything is house made including our desserts. We serve beer and wine, of which there is a nice variety and is reasonably priced. FREE valet parking available Tuesday-Saturday starting at 6 p.m. and on special holidays.

The menu is not huge but the food was great and the service good too. There was a nice variety to choose from and my tuna was done perfectly (I am not a rare tuna person and asked for medium). Nice wine list too.

Two Days Ago, My Wife and I were walking in downtown gainesville. We stumbled upon this awesome restaurant. As soon as we entered the doors, we were greeted by the very nice staff. We sat in the far left Dining room the one closest to the Cigar Bar next door. Our Dinner was superb. The Pork Tenderloin was truly magnificent, The Atmosphere was great. We had a concern at first, about being so close to a cigar bar. But after two hours of a great dinner the only aroma was coming from our delicious food. We will most certainly be back.

Located next door to a cigar bar, Paramount Grill captures the dining atmosphere of the 60's wafting through dry wall or AC vents. If it's the former, your palate might trap less nicotine if you insist on a table in the room closest to the front entrance. Ours was attached to the cigar bar.

We sampled a number of dishes -- beet salad, potato leek soup, sesame encrusted snapper, seared tuna steak, braised buffalo short ribs, grilled duck, and chocolate mousse. Only the mousse was memorable. Every main plate was piled high, as if quantity could compensate for quality. Not at these prices.

Wonderful interesting menu items. Not just your ordinary steak place. Expensive, we only go there for special occasions.

We enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The food was interesting without being bazaar. We had crab cakes and a cheese fondue dish for appetizers and even our teenage sons cleaned their plates. For main courses we had a pork dish, a shrimp dish and a fish dish with bean burritos. They were all huge and delicious. No room for dessert. Our server was incredible. Very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is modern but comfortable. Definitely recommend.
