    Went for a very special evening. Took a very long time to get a drink on the veranda. Then once we went inside to dine, service got worse. Server literally NEVER approached the able after taking our order (underlings actually serve the food). We had to motion to another server or a bus person to get our server for another drink etc. Food was OK. Pork tenderloin had LOTS of gristle. The red kurri soup however was rich and delicious. Bread was quite ordinary - room temp - hard. We will give it another try - but only one. In addition - they charged us for a more expensive grey Goose when my husband had ordered a less expensive Beefeater.

    I was quite disappointed in the rather slow service, despite there only being a few people in the restaurant. The food was delicious but overpriced. The drinks were way overpriced and neither I nor my girlfriend enjoyed ours much at all.

    My wife and I went for dinner. We typically go for a nice dinner at a steak house and wanted to try Paramour. Bar had a great ambiance as did the restaurant. My wife's steak was very rare, she ordered medium-well and it came out rare. Sent it back, for it to come back medium-rare. I like mine medium-rare, but she does not. when it came out the 3rd time it was well done and like leather. Cooking a steak is pretty simple, I expect errors at a chain restaurant but not somewhere we're paying $400 all-in for a nice dinner. I'd go back and give them another try because the place is nice, and local. I had the porterhouse pork chop with lentils which was excellent.

    It is so perfect! Romantic and usually impeccable! Celebrated my birthday with Leonel, and dressed to the nines!… we ate 6 courses! Each, were absolutely fantastic :-) The seafood flatbread, the figs and burrata, the pear poached salad, oysters, the scallops, and the peach pie dessert! SO PERFECT!!! Thank You, Paramour!! Even the bread and the bottled water are extra great! We requested a booth. I prefer the middle booth, but we keep getting the one on the end, for more privacy and less privacy. There was a camera above, so we were given royal treatment for service!

    We were thrilled with the changes at this favorite spot of ours that was in need of some changes. No disappointments any longer with the much needed change in the kitchen, which was quite apparent under the direction of a new chef with the innovative and delicious, spot on preparations in all three categories of appetizers, entrees and desserts. Many great bites with the Tuna Tartare and Dover Sole taking center stage for their exquisite preparations. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere was perfect. Don't miss this Main Line gem that is too good not to go to!

    We dined on a Sunday with another couple. Two of us got the Sunday 3- course special. The other two opted for the scallops. Salads were very good, though a few leaves were a bit wilted. The main course was presented artistically and the food was excellent. Meal sizes were moderate so you could enjoy the appetizer and dessert and still be able to walk. The dessert was very ample and easily shareable. Paramour was busy but not fully booked. The noise level was perfect for carrying on a conversation without shouting. Decor was classicly modern in an old hotel - lots of charm. Service was friendly and efficient - nothing lacking. Overall, a great dinner in a relaxed atmosphere.

    Came here for Sunday Brunch meeting family from across town. A pure delight! Décor was lovely, apparently the Wayne Hotel was redecorated in the past couple of years! Bright, open and clean and elegant, all at the same time! Nice open appetizer bar to accompany your brunch meal choice along with a bloody Mary bar, should you wish. Food presentation was beautiful and taste just the same! I would go back again and would love to try this spot for dinner!

    Went here w/ Jerry for a dual birthday. Very happy w/ the peach salad, corn soup, + halibut, complimentary homemade cookies for b-days, I loved the rhubarb sorbet, that has ginger :-) But, I asked for a black napkin, and forgot to bring it, so I ruined my very fancy dress!! :-( No matter how many times I tried to clean it with seltzer water, to get out the oil marks, it did not work! :-( If only he had brought out my napkin! It was the first time I had ever worn this dress and now it was ruined! I could not help but feel that he was not as attentive as all the other servers we have always had, who were outstanding! The food was excellent but they lost my vote of complete perfection. Expensive,mistake!

    Wife and I had brunch there on Sunday because the brunch was decent when we dined there the day after we got married. Waitress never checked on us after taking our order. The next time we saw her was after the food came although she visited nearby tables several times. She didn't even glance our way when I tried to get her attention. After gave me cold ketchup after I requested ketchup for my eggs.

    Outdoor dining and service was great! Drinks perfectly prepared. Was very excited about the possibility of a great new place to dine. Then the food came. The oysters were six TINY "Jersey" oysters. Tasty but barely there. The dinners - inedible. Neither of us ate more than a few bites of our dinners. The Spaghetti Chittara was a clump of stuck together pasta floating in a pool of oil. Disgusting to look at and to eat. You could actually pick the whole clump of pasta up with your fork! So for 2 drinks each, splitting the oysters, my pasta/no salad first -- my friend had two appetizer's as her dinner. No dessert, just a cup of coffee ... The bill was $140.00 not including the tip!! Outrageous! Terrible dinner. Might go back just for drinks.

    First meal at Paramour. 5:30 reservation meant they were not too busy. Shared the shrimp & artichoke flatbread which was tasty but probably too large for an appetizer for just 2 visits, would skip that unless dining with a larger group. I had the corn soup which was very good and also quite large. I also had the hamachi crudo which was fabulous. My husband said his halibut was very good. The mussels small plate had a very nice broth with Andouille sausage. The mussels themselves were on the small side and unexceptional.

    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.

    I've now been to Paramour 3 times; once for dinner and twice for lunch. Dinner was nice, except they put a huge table in the center of the dining room for a loud party, so we couldn't hear each other at our table because of the noise. My recent lunch was simply a cheese burger & side salad. The burger was very good; the salad was dressed with an oily and too salty dressing. All in all, a bit too expensive for food that is just not good enough.

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.

    The Chef's tasting menu was phenomenal. We were so glad that we opted for the wonderful wine pairing as well because we were able to experience and discuss the wines with their very personable Sommelier. While the room is beautifully designed, we sat in one of a few circular booths which face a parking lot across the street which detracts from the ambiance; and would recommend additional landscaping outside the window as a screen or always keep the curtains closed.

    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 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.
