Sometimes that means bringing the in-laws but I always feel welcome and safe at Paramount Grill. The food is always fantastic and the banana toffee cheesecake is to die for. I like the bananas just a little extra caramelized. My partner and his parents got the filet and were raving about it the full dinner. They all said it was the most tender and best-prepared filet they have had. I always either get the salmon or tofu and enjoy it each time. Usually, it is very quiet, my in-laws disrupted that but every other time I have come it has been quiet and peaceful. This includes weekends around graduation. Paramount Grill is also incredibly accommodating with reservations. I was able to make a reservation for 2 with a week's notice during graduation weekend. Fantastic service and food. I look forward to coming here for years to come.

Staff was attentive, gracious, and helpful. MIXED DRINK: Black Currant Cosmopolitan Not being a connoisseur of liquor, this was just the one I hoped for to compliment my dinner. A wisp of liquor mixed with sweetness and tartness. APPETIZER: Plantain & macadamia-encrusted crab cakes with caramelized pineapple - harissa vinaigrette & avocado Soft and delicious! MAIN COURSE: Pan-roasted center-cut Angus filet over chive mashed yukon golds with grilled zucchini (substituted for asparagus), roasted portabellos, puff pastry, white truffle oil & a sherry wine reduction The filet (well-done as ordered) was cooked to perfection, tender and tasty. Well balanced with the sides as described and drizzled with a delectable reduction sauce. Dessert: Banana cheesecake with caramelized bananas A nice way to end a wonderful dinner. No need to second guess this restaurant. Set your reservation and enjoy a relaxing time as you make your selections from, perhaps a short lists to some, but a list of tough choices; they all sound so awesome. Hope to return again the next time we visit Gainesville.

We dined indoors and tables seatings were safely spaced. There appeared to be only one server on duty bur she was EXCELLENT! She checked on our table frequently and we were well taken care of. I can’t wait to dine their again. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

We left and happened to check Open Table to find out they had open reservations immediately available. Went back and were seated. I would think businesses would actually WANT business these days!

The evening we dined the service by the wait staff was perfect, the food presentation was visually pleasing and the flavors were equally rewarding, including the wine. Undeniably a great place to celebrate a special occasion. And, the dessert’s were tasty and not too large that you couldn’t enjoy the last bite!

Maneuvering a 90 year old with poor mobility to the restaurant was a challenge - but not Paramount’s fault. Fortunately we sat inside, but noise level was still quite high. Service was excellent and everything tasted great. Their wine selection was terrible so we opted for martinis - which were very good. Two of the three meals were of enormous proportion. The southwestern salmon entree was the favorite of the table. The beet salad was very delicious as was the pole bean soup of the day. The espresso crème brûlée was also great. We had a good time and enjoyed the restaurant. The lack of good wine selection and the grossly over-sized portions of two of the three entrees cost s star. Overall recommend. Will try different night or brunch next time.👍

One of our guests is an amputee that relies on getting to his seat via an electric cart. I made note of this on the OpenTable reservation. When we got there, I was instructed to move the cart to an area inside the restaurant by wait staff. The manager came by after we were seated and loudly stated the electric cart had to be moved outside the restaurant. It was NOT handled in a professional and sympathetic manner at all.
