I would recommend if they were still open, but they have closed their doors for good as of 7/22/19

Great father's day brunch with wonderful service! Food was excellent but we couldn't eat it all since portions were huge!

So disappointed to learn that Paramour will be closing! We have been regular customers for years and have celebrated many special occasions. Our very best to the wonderful waitstaff who have made our times there delightful!
As always the food, service and ambience were perfection!
Best wishes!

The service was terribly slow. It took a long time for the server to ask for our drink, meal, desert order-once she did the drinks/food came out at an appropriate amount of time. Except the desert, it took a very long time for desert to come out, so long we ended up canceling our order. We probably won’t go back, there are plenty of places in the area with the same quality of food but much better service.

I came with high expectations but was disappointed. The service was poor. Waters were not refilled, plates were not taken away. It took 2 hours for lunch without appetizers. Waitress just never came back. Food was mediocre at best.

Have been there several times. Service was very painful and slow, almost to the point of ridiculous. Bar and food service extremely slow and not coordinated.

We shared four “ small plates” that were just ok . Nothing special for the price. Our waitress was not friendly or attentive.

Wedding anniversary dinner was wonderful. Every course was unique and delightful. I had not been to this venue for many years. The Paramour update was welcome. The bar appeared to be jumping. We were seated in the dining room. I was surprised that there was only one other table with guests, most of the time we were alone, which was fine; though it was a bit strange.

I cannot say enough about how good the food was and how nicely it was presented. My wife and I were impressed. The bill was hefty, but we did not hold back on enjoying great cocktails, wine, appetizers (good oysters too), secondi, mains (turbot for me, salmon for her), and dessert.

A very nice experience.

Food was great, trout and salmon and pork chop. Salads were good and octopus was excellent. Service was less attentive than previous visits, as a larger table seemed to distract our waitress.
Trout plates were very hot indicating they sat a bit in the kitchen.

Easter dinner was not a prix fixe but an off the menu night. This was our second visit within 5 months, after not visiting for a few years. That was our loss as this dinner and the previous one were excellent.
Food was really nicely done— we had Caesar salad, octopus small plate, trout and veal. Wine and drink choices were good but not inexpensive. Bread was not exceptional nor was our dessert, but each were good.
A fine fine meal.

Service for Easter Brunch was terrible. The food was average. The terrace was gorgeous. I've heard this place is going under and the service showed that they are on limited time.

This is one of my favorite restaurants to visit while up on the mainline. I hope that the "new" restaurant they are planning to open in its place is as good as this one.

One of the worst dining experiences I’ve had in a very long time. If you go, just go for drinks and apps. Go somewhere else for dinner. Wait was awful...and that is coming from someone who likes a slow dining experience. The greeting staff forgot we had arrived and the server and food was super slow to arrive. Order was mixed up and, when food finally came out, it was cold. Save your money...too many other better places for foodies!!!!

Food was very good but we had to wait 45 minutes for our dinner after the appetizers on a slow Tuesday night. We didn't like the atmosphere of the renovations. It now feels and looks like a modern sports bar. We used to go frequently but my wife and I both feel we wouldn't come back. It's a shame. A very nice, elegant and luxurious restaurant is now a cross between a sports bar and a diner.

Excellent visit for drinks at the bar followed by brunch the next day. I've been going to Paramour for a few years now and they have improved their service dramatically from last year's visit. The food is always excellent and tasty, even room service is impeccably done. I have recommended to friends and will continue to do so.

Food was excellent! Great presentation and great service. Small point I ordered a martini with 3 olives only got two! I retired from the hospitality business where I spent 43 years in service! It’s the smallest of details people will let goby but not forget! All in all excellent

The food was great! Both the taste and the presentation.
We did not appreciate the waiter coming every five minutes to fill up our glasses with water as that was not at all necessary. We ended up paying for water what we would have paid for a bottle of wine!

Paramour on a Saturday of Valentine's Day and Presidents was really busy. We sat at a high top in the bar area and enjoyed drinks and small plates. The lobster roll is delicious and served with truffle fries. Entrée menu looks especially tasty and will definitely try on an occasion when we haven't had a late lunch. Service is prompt and not intrusive and able to navigate crowded spaces efficiently and effectively. Prices are relatively high, although this IS the Main Line and patrons don't seem to have any problem with that.

Got an email two hours prior to my reservation saying I had canceled, which I hadn't, so I immediately called and was then told it must have been an accident, I then reconfirmed that we would be there, and asked if we still had the reservation, and was told that it would be really busy at that time. I then explained that this was indeed why I had made the reservation in the first place. I asked again if we would have a table and she didn't really know what to say, but said that she would do her best. Got there at 7:30 and was told there were no tables available so we waited about 20 mins, no big deal. The food was good overall but the tiramisu must've died in the walk-in a few days back. Thank God for chocolate covered espresso beans!!
