1st Visit to Paramour Restaurant
For the four of us long time friends this was our first visit to Paramour restaurant. Our experience was outstanding, from the
booking of reservation, to confirming with the host in the afternoon and his providing us with our choice of seating,
to the excellent food and sevice. Although the bar was crowded at "Happy Hour" that was entirely our fault ...
we were simply unfamiliar with it's popularity. We will be back.

We went for brunch to celebrate
We went for brunch to celebrate my mother's birthday. The food was excellent and the ambiance on the front porch was great. I would like to go back for dinner.

Excellent kitchen – very consistent
I have eaten here four different times in the last two months because it was so good.
Everything that comes out of that kitchen is perfectly prepared and I like the menu selections. Scallops are succulent and the Gruyere flatbread is addictive!
Service is excellent too - extremely attentive but non-invasive. Top-notch establishment and well run. A great place to take out-of-town guests

Gourmet Business Lunch
Very nice spot for a business meeting, relaxing lunch on the veranda or romantic dinner.
Service was efficient but not intrusive.
Good was very good and everything was well prepared. The prawns for my salad were so flavorful they had to be poached in court bouillon.
Will be back again for dinner.

Great place for a night out
Went with 2 other couples for a total of 6 of us - was a great "foodie" place to go and the service was excellent. They are willing to accommodate many food preferences (no seafood, mushroom allergy, celiac disease, etc.) and while it required the server to check with the chef, he was more than happy to do so. In addition, the staff samples everything on the menu (including the Hard Root Beer Float, which I recommend!) so their comments are not based on what the chef tells them to say about a given dish. Was very pleased and will likely be back soon!

The porch was perfect!
The Sunday night specials on a perfect August night were delightful. All 6 of us were happy with what we ordered and will be happy to go back, especially while it is porch season.

A little noisy on the porch, but
Paramour tends to be pretty lightly attended during the lunch hour and, as such, can feel a bit stark inside. However, the front porch is a pleasant and welcome option. Though set back from the main street in town, it came be a little noisy, though that tends to fade into the background. No problem having a conversation.
The food was excellent, as was the service.

A very beautiful restaurant
A very beautiful restaurant with very good food.
We had a wonderful time.

So glad the several negative comments on yelp did not deter us. Two dinners - one for the two of us and a second within the same week for group of. Five- were perfection. The food is of fine quality and is beautifully presented. The pork chop was as fat- free and tender as any we have ever seen, the steak done exactly as requested and succulent, the pressed watermelon appetizer a delightfully quirky item, the several fish dishes sampled also fine quality. The dining room decor is delightful. All in all a great experience. Prices as in line with the fine restaurants and are very fair for the quality . Clearly a "special occasion" place but we hope to get there as often as we can. Probably the best main-line dining experience in a long while.

so good, so close to home.
beautiful atmosphere. lovely staff. excellent house wines. just a superb menu always. i love it at Paramour.....especially since driving to philly is a pain from the burbs and time consuming when the kids are with a sitter you are paying by the hour : )
never a bad thing to say after a meal at this restaurant. my favorite.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our favorite outside dining spot. Service, food, etc. excellent. Cannot wait to go back

Last fling of summer!!
Fabulous food, drinks and atmosphere were enjoyed at Paramour over Labor Day weekend! Perfect spot to wrap up a fun summer!

My wife and I went to this
My wife and I went to this restaurant based on a reccomendation of a friend. The meal was very good and the service was excellent. I had the Pork Chop and the server said it comes pink in the center. I asked that it not be pink, but it came pink anyway. The vegetable with the pork chop was BBQ pinto beans whcih came very hard and uncokked I supect. In general the dinner was very nice and I would go back.

We hadn't been here since they closed temporarily and remodeled. It was great. The interior looks great, and we had a great dinner on the porch on a perfect night. Increasing the portion size just a bit would be good, and serving olive oil along with the bread might make it even better (and more that 1 roll - they were delicious). Excellent cocktails as well. We'll be back.

The service is very friendly
The service is very friendly and the ambient elegant. They do not make reservations for the veranda. If the weather is great, it is a good option when arriving there. Food is first class.

Beautiful restaurant , outstanding service. Food beautifully presented but too salty for our taste.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I did the tasting menu and it was delicious and affordable. We highly recommend it.

Ate outside on the beautiful veranda for lunch. Presentation was beautiful. My girlfriend and I shared the Northeast Louie Salad and scallops. Scallops were perfectly seared, and the Louie salad was absolutely delicious.

good experience once I moved
Asked for a quiet table - were seated on the veranda by choice at a table by the hotel front door entrance. It wasn't a problem until a really-loud foursome was seated next to us. Although one of the Chatty Kathys hit my chair a few times I finally switched seats after the waiter (not for our table) reached over me and bumped me to get to the adjacent table I mean come one geeez!
That said our dinner was great. OUR wait Michael was nice and very helpful, we had a good bottle of wine and I had the salmon which was fantastic! She had a NY strip which was also perfect. Food was really very good and the Veranda is very nice but pick your table better than we did!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was beautifully served. The menu imaginative and delicious. The coffee was great!

awesome lunch on porch
great food, waiter was great, delightful weather - a tad noisey with traffic on Route 30 but very nice
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our 4th or 5th visit in the last few months and still a real treat....fine food quality , lovely presentation, caring staff,seamless service...worth every dollar, the pork chop is extraordinary, the fish cooked to perfection,,,,just can't think of anything we would change about the experience.

Wonderful Birthday Lunch
I took my wife to lunch at Paramour for her birthday with two very close friends. We had a wonderful lunch on the porch. The food was great (I had the shrimp chowder in a clear broth and the lobster roll, both of which were excellent) and we dined on the porch which has a very New England feel to it. All in all, a great afternoon!

This was our first time at Paramour. No complaints about the food, service and the atmosphere is lovely.

The butternut squash soup was wonderful. I will go back just for that. The staff was gracious and accommodating. A delightful experience overall.

Wonder in Wayne
This has been outstanding every time we have been there. Creative delicious tastes and superb service.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my girlfriend for her birthday and we got the tasting menu with wine pairings. Our server (Michael) was knowledgable and fun, our sommalier was tremendous, and the food was killer. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a special dinner.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our small group thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. The food was presented attractively plated. Staff accommodated one person who had food allergies by suggesting other choices not on the menu. Staff was attentive without being obvious, which allowed us time to talk without constant nterruption. Wouldn't hesitate to go back again for a special occasion.

Loved the dining room, tables were well spaced. Food was delicious especially the salads. We ordered a Cavatlli side, and wished it was an entree, as we couldn't get enough. It was yummy!! The filet mignon was perfectly cooked to order and sizable. Our waiter brought a very nice Birthday dessert to our table, as well as greeting our friend with a happy birthday upon our arrival. A great personal touch! We are already planning a return visit, and this will be our new restaurant for special occasions as well. Thanks for a memorable evening.

Pampered at Paramour
We celebrated our 53rd wedding anniversary at Paramour. I had told them in advance and expected the inevitable candle with dessert and got the royal treatment instead. Warm greeting out front, nice table, a kir royale to start, attentive service, a fine meal, and the inevitable candle in the deliciious flourless chocolate brownie dessert. They do a terrific job with the thin, crisp flatbreads and we shared the mozzarella, basil, tomato flatbread to start.Asked for time between courses and got it. I had thed diver scallops and they were done just right. Wife had the duck breast. Asked for it medium-rare and it came up too rare. Five minutes later it was back, at the right degree of doneness. Wne list impressive..
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was very good, particularly the pork chop; the service was OK and friendly but much too familiar.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
The epitome of a restaurant. Good food, good people, good chairs--everything. The owner should be proud to offer such a service and product to the greater Philadelphia area.

Elegant, delectable and cordial
We hosted a couple from NYC for dinner Saturday night at Paramour and it was a perfect evening. The dining room is elegant and comfortable. The servers are professional and personable, attentive but not intrusive. The delicious braised short rib melts in your mouth. The fish du jour, pompano (I think) and the salmon were fresh, seasoned and cooked to perfection. One friend ordered the pork chop and said it was tender and delicious and when she wanted to substitute the side dish our server was very accommodating. Considering the outstanding cuisine, beautiful decor and expert staff the prices are very reasonable. We will definitely be back, often.

A perfect evening!
The table for two was quiet, the service attentive and pleasant, and the meal was superb!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
I picked this for my girl's night out and it was a hit! The food and service were excellent!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
great food and wine menus
The wine and food were outstanding. I felt that our server was not very knowledgeable.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great brunch spot - the appetizer bar is a very nice touch. It had just a few items but everything was so nicely prepared. Entrees were great (omelette and steak and eggs). Service was perfect - attentive but non intrusive.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wine and Meal
we went for the cassoulet and beaujolais Neuveau and were not disappointed. It was a special meal; we even took some home!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
I chose the venison dinner, which was one of the special offerings for Thanksgiving, and it was quite good. My husband, however, selected the duck from the regular menu, and he said it was the first time he had had duck that was tough. When I mentioned this to the waitress who asked whether our meals were satisfactory, she said that duck was a "gamey" meat. I don't really agree that it is, but even if true,gaminess has nothing to do with being tough.
Paramour is expensive, but very nice for a special occasion
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Back to Paramour for a third time. First couple of times a bit iffy. This time the food and service was very good.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Paramour, very good food but pricy
An excellent meal but over $200 for 2 people who shared a dessert (with 4 glasses of wine)
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is the most expensive
This is the most expensive restaurant we've been to in the area, which we expected, but not the best. It's nice when the two go hand in hand. It was very good. One of the best steaks (filet) I've ever had and the duck was amazing. As much help as was on staff they should have been more attentive. We had to wait a few minutes to place our order and our glasses were empty without being asked if we wanted another. More variety in the small plates would be appreciated. We like to order many small items so we can taste as much as possible while fine dining. Overall a good experience but I expected more.

A Delightful Evening at Paramour
We had an amazing meal at Paramour. When we first arrived we were greeted by the friendly staff and handed a drink menu, expecting to glance at the wine selection, we were surprised to find they have an incredible craft beer selection! For dinner we decided to have the Chef's Tasting and we were not disappointed - each course was outstanding. My favorite was the scallops...cooked to perfection. Our server was attentive and very professional. I would highly recommend Paramour if you are looking for that perfect place for a special dinner - from the moment we walked in to the end of our evening, the service and the food were absolutely delightful.

New favorite place
Wow is all I can say.... I had stopped in for happy hour in the bar a number of times but never actually eaten in the restaurant, very glad I did.
I was looking for someplace new and special for a 2 year anniversary and Paramour did not disappoint. The service was tremendous, from the somalier to the server.
Excellent service, wine and steak made for a terrific evening.
