We use only the best, freshest ingredients and most everything is house made including our desserts. We serve beer and wine, of which there is a nice variety and is reasonably priced.

Everyone complains about noisy restaurants, but no one seems to do anything about it. This is a rather pricey place, and one would expect a quiet meal. Not so. There are many solutions, but they would cost money. Doubt that I would return

Chicken salad and angus burger was fabulous. Almost too much for my husband and me. We thoroughly enjoyed lunch our first time here as business travelers to this area we will definitely return. Highly recommend!

Last year, our adult daughter and our grandson joined us for a delightful Mothers Day brunch at the Paramount Grill in Gainesville, Florida. Our experience started off with delicious mimosas and an attentive and friendly wait staff. This jewel offers cozy ambiance and surprisingly gourmet fare. We are back again this year (reservations in place) and can't wait to taste Clif's creations for the special day!

The atmosphere was pleasant, with with tablecloths and candles on the table. The food portions were ample and beautifully presented. My husband had the duck dish, our friend had the salmon, and I had the lobster dish. Everything was delicious--not something available at many restaurants. It was quiet so we could enjoy our conversation. The waiter provided excellent service.

We waited in the cold outside for about 30 minutes past our reservation time. When we were finally seated, almost everything on the menu was unavailable. The service was slow and the food came out one dish at a time for a table of six. As if this wasn't bad enough, we were billed over $100. Fortunately, my husband always checks the bill and caught the problem. They offered us no apologies for any of the problems. This was the second time we went there. The first time was not as problematic, but nothing to shout about so we decided to try it again. We will never go there again.
