Family bonding and birthday celebration. Great cocktails and modern twist to seasonal food. Service was excellent. Calvin served us and gave food recommendations with detailed descriptions of what to expect which was exceeded by the food experience. The ambiance was very mod. Overall a lovely experience.

My husband and I went to Paramour for Thanksgiving. The food and service were excellent but we were taken back and hit with sticker shock at the cost of the Thanksgiving meal. We got to choose one item from three slots (appetizer, main course, and a dessert). The cost for our salad, turkey dinner and dessert was $65 each. That did not include the beverages. We both got iced tea and I got a coffee. They were $3 each and the glasses and cup were small. If we were to add wine to our meal it would have been an additional $35 each! Fortunately, neither of us drink alcohol. As I said the food was very good but I don't feel it was worth $65. It was definitely a one-time deal. If we were to return it would be a very special occasion.

We had reservations but they were not necessary. When we arrived a few minutes early for our noon reservation we entered the restaurant but there was no one there to great us. Eventually a manager came forward and informed us that he could not seat us yet because they "hadn't finished the staff meeting." So, we stood around in the foyer looking at empty tables until we got tired of standing, then we walked over to one of the tables and sat down.
By this time I was starting to feel like the staff meeting was more important than our dining experience, but eventually the hostess came over and asked us if we wanted something from the bar while we waited for a wait person. My father (it was his birthday) ordered a glass of sauvignon blanc and the hostess returned with what appeared to be a glass of merlot.
When the wait staff was released from their meeting (about 12:07 P) things changed dramatically.
Thanks in-part to my father, I can honestly say that I have been fortunate enough to dine in many of the world's best hotels and restaurants. So, when I say that our waitress "Lady" was superb I speak from experience. There are not enough superlatives to adequately describe how pleasant our dining experience was after Lady took over.
The food was excellent too.

We came into the restaurant for dinner rather early (5:30 seating) and was greeted nicely and escorted to our table set for 2. That was a nice touch, as so many restaurants sit you at a table set for 4 and pull away extra place settings. At first, our server seemed a bit rushed, and was difficult to understand. As the meal and the dinner continued he was more comfortable and engaged a little. Food was very good, and there were many other servers to support our main.
Only complaint was my main course (scallops) weren't hot.

Really delicious food! I had beet salad to start followed by Grouper. Delicious. My colleagues had raw fish appetizers that were wonderful too! Wine a little pricey - food pricey too but this is a special place! Sit on the front porch weather permitting.

I have been to Paramour for brunch, drinks and dinner many times. I used to be able to count on coming here for excellent drinks, good food and excellent service as well. Sadly, this is no longer the case. Over my last few visits service has drastically gone down hill. I decided to give Paramour another chance today and came for brunch with a good friend. Service was horrible. After ordering our food and drinks, our server never came to check on us again. We had long since finished our drinks and had even moved our empty glasses to the edge of the table with hopes that they would be noticed and refilled. Instead our server just cleared the empty glasses and didn't ask if we would like another drink or coffee. Our omelets did not come with toast. I asked for toast and was given two pieces of warm bread, with no butter or jam. Our server and none of the other employees noticed that my bread remained uneaten and that i was not given butter. Our server finally came over quite a bit later and asked if we wanted anything else. At that point we had already been with empty drinks for 20-25 minutes so we said we were fine and it would probably take too long to get anything else. During a normal brunch my friend and I are good for at least 2 drinks each and coffee/cappuccino. My guess is that the server left at least $35 on the table. A very disappointing experience. I can certainly not recommend coming here. I have been to Paramour for drinks and appetizers after work a few times earlier this year with very poor service, so I was hesitant to try coming again. I should clearly have spent my money elsewhere.

We really enjoyed the food! I recommend the grouper and the steak frites. We had the stuffed peppers but it’s a small appetizer. Something the waiter should mention to a table of 4. We would have gladly ordered two!

Reception was terrible. Hostess did not seem to acknowledge our reservation for several minutes, then greeted other guests as we waited to be seated.

Service was curt and minimal. Little checking during the meal, no offer of dessert or coffee at its end. This was for lunch on a Wed. We were the last to leave; I had to ask the bread server who was cleaning a table near us for the check.

We went for a relaxing Saturday evening dinner. The restaurant is aesthetically pleasing but the music was way to loud with a repetitive thumping beat without any real rhythm. The servers were delightful and attempted to be helpful. The food was disappointing. My entree, halibut was extremely dry. The other diner's entree had to be sent back since it was way too salty.... suffice it to say I will not be back for a while.....

Went on a Sunday when the Eagles were playing and the place was empty. Greeted warmly by staff and the server was very attentive. There is a special menu Sunday-Tuesday which is a discounted 3 course menu. The chicken was excellent. There is also half-price wines Sunday-Tuesday. All the dishes were very good.

Really enjoyed our dinner with friends on the occasion of Dressage at Devon. Food was great and service wonderful. Only problem was when we requested our checks. Had asked for separate(I know, a pain) but wasn't happening. Our server did separate it but the math was wrong. We ended up figuring it out ourselves. Wouldn't keep me from coming back. Overall, great night.

Paramour is absolutely outstanding. The ambiance is contemporary and elegant, and the staff goes out of their way to delight you. And now...the food. Absolutely delectable! I have eaten there many times but never for brunch. Give yourself time for selecting your entree, as you will find it difficult to choose. Thankfully, they have a complimentary appetizer bar to temporarily tide you over while you peruse the mouthwatering menu. We were celebrating a special BIG birthday, and a wonderful time was had by all. Thanks, Paramour!

While the atmosphere of eating on the Veranda was wonderful, I am not sure I will return to Paramour. My husband and I like Martini's which means we like them being served in the traditional martini glasses that the majority of other restaurants use. I ordered a Cosmo at Paramour and was VERY disappointed in the drink. It came in a tiny glass that meant there was half the volume of most Cosmo's and I was then shocked when we got our bill that we were charged $14 !!!! My husband and I eat out every single Friday and Saturday nights and we go to a lot of upscale restaurants so normally price is not a big factor for us but it is hard to accept feeling ripped off. Since the Cosmo was so small, I then ordered a house Sauvignon Blanc and the "pour" when it came was about a 4 ounce size and this small wine was $12.50---normally one can get an upscale brand name and the pour is usually a 6 ounce pour for the same price. My husband's $17.00 hamburger which he ordered to be medium cooked came and it was well done.
