    Just eating the leftovers. Ordered organic beet salad and salmon. I would have offered a vegetable base to serve salmon instead of black bean flutes. The food and service 👍🏾

    The place was a bit too noisy for my tastes. Perhaps that loudly cackling woman at a nearby table was to blame. Perhaps it's the location: next door to a bar popular with the college kids that often has loud outdoor dancing going on. Its food was good, but not spectacular.

    Great service, good food, lacking a full bar (no hard liquor). Gainesville needs to open this street again - parking was difficult with a handicapped person. Not the restaurant’s fault.

    It was a disappointing experience last night and unfortunately I wish I would’ve asked for a manager rather than just paying $140 (after tip) and taking my undercooked food ToGo. Started with the Fondue, it was definitely nothing special for $18…. cheese, old bread cubes, mushrooms and halfway RAW chicken cubes. We were starving and our server hadn’t come back outside so we just ate the bread and shrooms and told her about the raw chicken. She removed it and said it would be “discounted”. In my 20 yrs of working in the restaurant industry I have NEVER had a item “discounted”. Who charges someone half the price since they ate half of it while waiting to find their server? Unreal. Our meals arrived and they were undercooked as well. It was like all the meat was cooked on the lowest setting or something. None of it had any color to it. The filet had no searing whatsoever. It was also prepared rare/MR rather than Med as ordered. The pasta dish was the same. No searing on the sausage or shrimp. The whole pieces of garlic were raw and crunchy. You absolutely can’t leave whole garlic in a dish and not properly cook it. My husband is always very accommodating to me and will switch dishes if I don’t prefer mine. Neither of us complained to each other but both of us, asked if the other would like to taste so we switched. After two bites, I knew I couldn’t eat anymore and he said “I just can’t eat this, it’s also raw”… he will literally eat anything usually. We boxed our meals paid the tab and left. The disappointment comes from: 1. me not speaking up… after working in a restaurant for forever, I HATE to complain. 2. This was my second time here and we had the same server both times. She didn’t remember us at first, but halfway through our meal she finally did. We had an app, large salad, 2 meals, dessert and drinks and ate EVERYTHING on our plates. $50 tip. This time we ordered half the amount of food and didn’t eat hardly any of it. Our server should’ve picked up on that

    Really lovely, relaxed dining experience. The brunch menu options were fantastic and I had a very difficult time choosing! Dishes were reasonably priced, especially for how great the food and ingredients are. I have to go back and try out the other dishes I missed out on—I don’t think any will disappoint!

    Went for brunch. Appreciate the table cloths and good service. Southwestern salmon and crab cakes Benedict were delicious. Poached eggs were perfect. Pancake was creative but a bit dry. Muffins were a nice touch. Bathrooms and hallway leading to bathrooms could use some work.

    This was our first time visiting Paramount Grille and we were so incredibly impressed. The space was bright, lots of natural light and a very nice comforting ambience. The food was super delicious. We had the shrimp and grits, goat cheese omelet and crab cake Benedict at our table and everyone was beyond ecstatic with how good the food was. If you have not been here, highly highly recommend coming. Such a gem in downtown Gainesville. Can’t wait to go back and try their dinner menu.

    I only ate half of my meal so I asked their server to bring a container to take the rest home. She offered to do it for me but ended up discarding the food. She offered to have the French toast remade which took forever. She finally returned with the French toast only. I had to ask for the blueberry topping, syrup and yoghurt which delayed things further. Honestly, if she had just brought me the container, everything would have been perfect.

    We have been here for lunch/brunch and enjoyed it. Last night we started with mussels and crabcakes. The crabcakes and mussels were ok but when we received our meals all 4 of them were cold. We sent them back and when we got them back they were warmed up but still not at the right temperature and ingredients were missing. I had the filet and it was cooked ok just cold and it was missing the asparagus when I got my plate back. My husband and another guest got the salmon and the salmon was ok but the rest of the plate was nothing to write home about. At the end the server brought us an espresso creme brule for the table as an apology and it was the only thing that we all enjoyed. Our bill was well over $200 and I felt like I could have gone to fast food and been more satisfied. A cherry on the top was when we arrived at home I was violently ill for over 2 hours. NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE. Not sure what is happening at Paramount.
