Diner Reviews
  • "Very good, imaginative, and attractively presented food. New waitress needed more training - really, really green."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "The Prix Fixe Sunday Supper option was a great find! The food and service were fantastic, and the three courses were regular-sized - not smaller like some prix fixe deals. We will go back!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "We were very pleased overall. Service was outstanding. Attentive to our needs - especially our special request."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We spend a lot of time in Wayne and Paramour. The food is superb and the service is excellent. If you want a really fine dining experience, this is it. Eating on the porch in the summer is a special treat. They have really perfected the dining experience over the years. You will see me there again -- and again. There are very few restaurants in the area -- or the region for that matter -- that compare to Paramour. Why the hell would anyone drive downtown when we have a such a gem in the neighborhood. Had dinner there twice in a week and both times everything was perfect."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Our server, Vincent, was terrible. After bringing us the wrong drinks, he disappeared for 35 minutes without even taking our food order. We finally had to go up to the hostess and ask her to find him for us. This is our second time having him and both times were awful. If we come back to Paramour, we would specifically request NOT to be seated in his section."

  • "Great place to meet friends for brunch on a Sat/ Sunday afternoon. Sitting on the outdoor porch is very pleasant and relaxing. Food was good, with each of us ordering something different. Everyone was happy with their selections. Bloody Mary bar is an interesting addition with lots of choices. Our service was good, our waiter was courteous and very helpful in making selections. I have been here a number of times and will be happy to return."

  • "We had a nice brunch at Paramour; the open access to the brunch appetizers is a nice touch. I had a salad and my husband had the quiche for brunch; both were excellent."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Our experience was good. The food and the service was really good. A little pricey."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Are here for dinner about a year ago and it was great. Went in for Sunday brunch and it was the complete opposite of my last visit. Service was slow and food was certainly nothing special. Especially for the price. 5 people spent $190 on brunch before tip. We did have two mimosas each. Won't be going back for brunch again."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Usually excellent brunch. This time, service was very slow possibly due to a wedding party in another room. They seemed ill-equipped to handle the additional volume. Two in our party had problems with their eggs- one was under-cooked, the other was ice cold. Also, did not replace buffet breads and pastries without our asking several times."

  • "johnny was our server, he was knowledgeable and helped make our dinng experience more enjoyable food was wonderful"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We had a wonderful experience and look forward to coming back soon. Everyone was very accommodating and polite. Our server made sure to let me know that they received my message about my allergies and that I had nothing to worry about. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. I don't know what else to say. I would recommend this place to anyone that is looking to have an amazing dining experience. Ohh... One last thing. I am looking forward to trying their burgers. Hopefully real soon."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "On a hot day, I couldn't imagine myself eating outside, but they offered their porch with ceiling fans and it was actually delightful. The food was delicious - we each had a salad and homemade coffee gelato (with cookies on the side). Our French waitress was attentive and quite pleasant. I recommend it for lunch and/or dinner. It truly is a neighborhood gem."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Food was wonderful. Caesar salad was nice size. Not made table side, but dressing tasted fresh. Diver scallops with English peas were perfect--nice crunch to the peas. Hangar steak well-cooked as ordered."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Dined on the veranda, which was a real treat on a fantastic summer evening. Food was of superior quality, prepared perfectly, and beautifully presented. The service was attentive without being obtrusive. Of special note was the serious wine list. On Sunday, they offer selected bottles at half price. The sommelier described each of the half-priice choices very well to help us make our choice ... and his description was spot-on. We can't find any flaw worth mentioning in our entire dining experience at Paramour."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Sunday brunch was delicious and very relaxing. We sat on the porch on a beautiful day and relaxed for more than 2 hours without feeling rushed or any pressure to leave. Bloody Mary bar was fun and the appetizer bar had delicious small bites. The menu was varied and interesting. Definitely worth a second visit!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014

  • "We went to celebrate our anniversary and had a great time! We decided to sit in the dining room- but will have to go back to try the bar menu!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Our anniversary dinner was excellent from start to finish. Sitting on the porch on a beautiful summer evening added to the perfect ambience. Appetizers of heirloom tomato mozzarella salad and Caesar salad were followed by scallops and sea bass , all excellent. Dessert was different and delicious, chocolate caramel parfait. Service could not have been better and since reading poor reviews about this we were concerned. We will be back especially in the summer for the porch experience."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "great for team meeting to eat outside. We enjoyed the evening."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Needed a new restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. An online search suggested Paramour might fit our need. It did. Vibrant restaurant with great service, exciting ambience, innovative menu, and good-looking patrons."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I took my dad to brunch for Father's Day. We made reservations and when we arrived, the hostess gave us a choice between a table inside or on the porch. It was beautiful out so we sat on the porch. Our server was fantastic at the beginning and great at the end but disappeared for the majority of our time there. We had to ask another server for refills after we sat there for 20+ minutes with empty glasses. When the food came out, some of it was missing so we had to get another server to get the rest of our order. The food was delicious but slightly over priced."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The food and dining room here are great. We go regularly. And usually the service is pretty darn good, but the last time we went, for Father's Day Brunch, our waitress was not good, and her poor service diminished our experience. She was absent and late with things, even though the dining room was not at all full (we came right at opening). Still, we will go back for the food and ambiance and hope for better service."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We were celebrating a special occasion and returned to one of our favorite restaurants. Our waitress had zero personality. We ordered an appetizer with our drinks. She brought two, then the other drinks and no appetizer. We had to ask for bread. She attempted to serve the appetizer after the first course. Did not check in at the table once during service. After dinner, she handed us dessert menus. We had had enough and just wanted to leave. After declining dessert, she said "well the Manager was going to give you ONE dessert because of the appetizer". We couldn't believe it. Because of her, my husband swore we would never go back. Your manager should have approached us before we left to at least attempt a recovery."

  • "Best!! Corn creamy soup and rock shrimp flatbread pizza and scallop entree to die for! :-)"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Great spot to treat Dad. Group party in the dining room was handled skillfully and swiftly!"

  • "Paramour is an excellent restaurant. The atmosphere is relaxing and the food is to die for!!!!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "We had a wonderful dinner at Paramour for our son's graduation. The food was delicious, the service was friendly but not disruptive - the room is spacious and comfortable, and not too loud, allowing for a large table to be able to converse easily. I would definitely go back - menu highlights - diver scallops. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "My husband and I have dined at Paramour three or four times. Each time the food was delicious and the service was very good in every respect. However, the service was extremely slow on Wednesday, June 4th when we were celebrating a friend's birthday. Twice we had to get up and go find someone to ask when our dinner would be served. The exuse was "we are low on staff." Dinner finally arrived and it was very good but our dining experience was diminished by the terrible service. The restaurant did apologize and gave us dessert free of charge. We will return to Paramour but hope the service will be as it was on our first few visits."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Our metric for any fine restaurant is the former occupant of this location, Tauqet. It was a consistent five star experience. Paramour provided a very enjoyable evening. The food was excellent (although one of the salads was incorrect and had to be changed). The environment was very nice. The service was a bit rough around the edges. I don't want to single out anyone because everyone worked hard. However, there are procedures for service that five star staffs execute consistently such as how food is served, removal of completed plates, not reaching across a guest with plates/food for another, being attentive but not hovering. This is about training to provide a five star experience. That said we will return. The evening was very nice."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "The food was delicious with interesting ingredients. The presentation was well done. The desert menu was limited and not as appealing. Service was friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Sitting on the outdoor porch was delightful, especially on a lovely spring evening. The indoor decor was not to my liking, fabric on booths was too loud. Other than that, the layout was cozy, romantic and lovely"

  • "Dined at Paramour recently for wife's birthday. Beautiful interior and exterior, and friendly attentive service, but of course that means little compared to the food, which was very good. My wife had the crudo appetizer which she thought was outstanding. My lobster and prawn cocktail was only mediocre, however, with very little taste in the lobster or prawns and none whatsoever in the accompanying romesco sauce. The scallop main course and the red snapper dish were both tasty and beautifully presented. The wine list is ample, though markups are on the high side. We would definitely visit Paramour again."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Paramour is a good solid suburban restaurant, but based on the price point it is not exceptional. The food is good, but not great. We have all become spoiled by the creative cuisine available in Center City Philadelphia and in a select number of suburban restaurants. Paramour is clearly a step up when compared to the suburban chain restaurants, but it does not compare with many of the fine restaurants in Center City or the creative suburban restaurants such as Black Fish, Cerise, etc."

  • "Perfect, EveryTHING!!!!:-) Perfect hostest and perfect server, perfect seat, perfect reccommendations and perfect food! Gorgeous! Perfect Ambience! Like we were the only ones in the world! :-) Oysters from Heaven! Scallop principal dish from heaven and he also loved his Salmon. Best was the strawberry rhubarb pie! Tim and I thought Everything was pure PERFECTION! O:-) "

  • "The food was very good. I liked the menu and everything tasted and was presented well. The service was average. Would expect more attentiveness considering the overall ambience and to some extent the price and location. Would still recommend it though "
