I cannot thank Clifton enough for accommodating such a large and somewhat unexpected size to this dinner. He and his staff were phenomenal in adding plates that were not rsvp'd, drink orders that were coming like lightning and all with such pizzaz and grace! The...More

Paramount Grill has very unique dinners that contain layers of flavors. One of us had the kangaroo filet (a first for us) and the meat was tender and slightly nutty tasting. I had the shrimp and lobster over black pasta, also very good. Another member...More

The food is always delicious and presented like it is from the very best Michelin rated restaurants. Expensive by Gainseville standards, but very reasonable compared to similar in a large city.

Always wonderful, creative, beautifully presented, great friendly and knowledgeable servers. We went with her recommendations for sharing an entree (the salmon enchiladas, with fried green tomatoes and avocado - delicious!!), the large beet salad - very yummy, and the crab cake appetizers.

Quaint little place - great food. Fondue appetizer was yummy - the mushrooms were the best part - wasn't a fan of the chicken as a side on the dish. I had the Salmon dinner and it was incredible!! Would definitely go back.

Paramount Grill is my favorite lunch spot in all of Gainesville. The service is fantastic, the food is always fresh and delicious, and I've never had to wait more than 5 minutes to get seated.

Don't know about a brunch menu. I would try looking online. Decent wine list but you'd do better, for wine, at Manuel's Vintage Room around the corner from Paramount Grill!

There is a Paramount Hotel in Gainesville which is not the same as the Paramount Grill, Restaurant. The Paramount Grill has two rooms in the restaurant. I believe they would be able to accommodate a private party.
