    Booked a table, got confirmation email and turned up yesterday to a locked door. Spoke to a man who unlocked the door saying they weren’t ready to open / are open. Why was the booking allowed to go ahead? No communication what so ever. Wasted our time too. Not the man who seen us fault but surely they should have seen a booking was in place - ridiculous.

    A great bar in the center of Aberdeen, cocktails were fab and the music/atmosphere amazing! The only issue we had as a group was in regard to table reservation. On arrival our table hadn't been signposted as reserved, so staff asked the customers to vacate. Then once seated, about 5 minutes later we were asked to move again for another group, which made for an awkward, avoidable situation. It was still a great experience overall, however I would recommend placing reserved signs on tables in future.

    I’d a table for 9 booked and thankfully 2 people bailed or there wouldn’t be room plus I asked if things can be done to celebrate it more for a birthday and there wasn’t anything done or no contact back. Great time but gutted about the table

    Had a booking for over 3 weeks and when I arrived they tried to split my party up as they’d given my table to another party. They then were very rude to me when I asked for a change and why they had done it. Very unpleasant experience and will not be back.

    Not sure what the point is of booking a table if they are going to make you wait outside and queue yet those without bookings could walk straight in. Makes absolutely zero sense. Also we were told cocktails were served until 10pm but when we got to the bar they said no. Disappointing. Always love the atmosphere in Paramount though so will continue going but just won’t bother booking a table next time!
    Paramount BarResponded on 20 September 2021
    Hi LollyB, Thanks for your review. I am saddened to hear that you had a poor experience when booking with us, we aim to deliver excellent service to both bookings and walk ins. I am however delighted this experience hasn't put you off coming to Paramount and happy that you love the atmosphere. However, I am keen to discuss your visit to see how we can prevent this from happening to you and other guests in the future. If you can please email me on nikk.stevens@signaturepubs.co.uk. Best, Nikk

    We were a party of 6 for drinks only, ordering cocktails. Seated in a good spot for our group however staff lacked customer service as one of the drinks was not to our tasting and when mentioned it was glossed over and not properly acknowledged. When we asked for bill, it was presented and left on table and when staff returned to collect payment it was initially not very clear what they were asking and manner was abrupt. We were in early at 4.30pm so the place was relatively quiet which suited us for the time of day.
    Paramount BarResponded on 20 September 2021
    Hi Nikki, Thank you for taking the time to review your visit. I am disappointed to hear of your experience, and this is definitely not the standard of service we aim to deliver to our guests so for that I am sorry. I am eager to discuss this in more detail with you, if you wouldn't mind dropping me an email to nikk.stevens@signaturepubs.co.uk, I would greatly appreciate that. I look forward to hearing from you. Best, Nikk
