A word from Paul Martin's American Grill - El Segundo
Local. Seasonal. Delicious.

With Paul Martin's American Grill, Brian Bennett and restaurateur Paul Fleming have realized a long-nurtured dream to create the restaurant "we've always wished was in our neighborhood."

At the heart of all great food is fresh, local, peak of the season ingredients. Paul Martin's aims to serve diners the best ingredients with meat raised in a humane and wholesome way, locally sourced produce, the best of both wild and farmed fish, artisan cheeses and cured meats from small local purveyors. The deep California-centric wine list twists and turns, by glass or bottle, through the Golden State's vineyards, with an occasional stop for an Oregon Pinot Gris or a Washington dry Riesling. Behind Paul Martin's elegantly rustic bar is an interesting array of craft beer and spirited cocktails with fresh garnishes. Good times and thoughtful food are a way of life at Paul Martin's American Grill.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "My family enjoyed our Easter meal with one exception - I had a difficult time getting a second cup of coffee and after that - no more?!! Don't understand that type of non-service - especially for beverages - such as coffee."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The service was very good and the food was good, but the lunch prices are a little high. Then need to come up with a better lunch menu selection."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "We have eaten here several times and unfortunately it has become progressively a poor experience. This last dining event made sure it would be our last. The salmon dish was slimy as our son put it and he wouldn't eat it. Our brick chicken was beyond salty but we ate it anyway when we should have sent it back. The restaurant did comp the salmon which was appreciated but we won't be returning. The menus are noticeably wrinkled and stained with wine and other assorted previous diners leavings--why keep reusing dirty paper menus ? "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "We always enjoy PM's and this most recent time was no exception. We had a well-behaved infant with us and the staff was very considerate. Only difficulty was that our server (Steve) had no knowledge of wine and when stumped for answers or recommendations, did not defer to anyone else in the restaurant that may have had more knowledge. The request was to recommend a Super Tuscan or something similar. Steve had no idea. Suggest wine training or having someone to whom to defer. I did not enjoy the vegetables that accompanied the Hoisin glazed pork chop - actually did not enjoy the pork chop either. Will stay away from that next time."

  • "We've been there so many times but this time we were with friends and somehow we felt rushed. Rushed to select from the menu...rushed to finish the entire dinner period. Always with the phrase " I do not want to rush you." Maybe because our table conversation was always interrupted with them always checking on us. "

  • "Always have a good experience here! Food is great service is great and extensive wine list. "

  • "Paul Martin's is great not only after the movie, but before or without a movie. We have never had a bad or even so-so meal there. The food is fresh and well-prepared and they are willing to accommodate dietary needs. The martinis are super and Paul Martin's offers generous promotions."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "We went there for our 25th Anniversary and they treated us very nicely. Our server was nice and the food was really good. We even had a special deal for tax day. "
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "I've eaten here before and was not really interested in returning. My wife wanted to give it a try and I reluctantly agreed. The food was way better than I had in the past and my wife thought the black cod was great. Way to turn it around!"

  • "I took my husband for his Birthday. The food was excellent , as well as the service and ambience. We had a wonderful meal."

  • "Love the Food! It's Fresh and always Delicious. Excellent Wine List. Our Server was genuinely Friendly and Accommodating. I advised her that I have a Stomach problem. She worked with Me with my Special Diet needs."

  • "Great service! Braised short ribs were off the chart"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "great deal ! Some of the best black cod ive ever eaten"
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "I loved the restaurant, but it is rather silly that the happy hour menu is limited to the bar only. This really makes it not desirable for those who want to do a corporate happy hour after work...I think if you offer happy hour menu during the happy hour you would be not be disappointed."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "I took my best friend here for her birthday dinner while she was visiting for her birthday. The food was truly great, the wine selection was huge & the service was very very good. I am looking for any excuse to go back (maybe I don't need an excuse)."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Great food, great service, great wine! Will Definitely return, we enjoyed a wonderful evening."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "This was my first time at Paul Martin's. It was perfect because we went on the earlier side when the restaurant was still pretty empty, so it was nice and quiet. Everything on the menu looked delicious. I was told that their burgers are excellent so that's what I chose. It was one of the best that I have had. Our server was very attentive and very pleasant. I will definitely return. It will probably become one of my favorite restaurants to frequent."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Food is consistently wonderful; menu items change periodically so I miss some of the excellent dishes but they always seem to be replaced with something even better. Wine list is good. Bar is always hopping."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Paul Martin's is a chain so I wasn't expecting anything special so the wonderful experience was a great surprise. Was able to get a big booth for just the two of us which was perfect for a business meeting. Our server was incredibly professional and helpful. Enormous selection of wines by the glass. Food was delicious. Kale Caesar for appetizer and short ribs for main course were both excellent. Prices less than you would expect for a restaurant of this caliber. I would rate it a 4.2. My only complaint was that the server didn't mention validating my parking ticket which would have saved me $12"
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "It's obvious that quality ingredients count at PM - everything is fresh & veggies are vibrant in color with a distinct farm to table quality. Simple presentation but that allows the meal to stand on its own without covering in sauces, garnishes etc. ample portions without being wasteful. Could be a little lighter inside - nice lighting for cocktails, but a little dim for lunchtime."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Nothing wrong with this restaurant for folks who like this sort of thing--solidly prepared food, but a little heavy. My Asian Salad was actually very good, but when I order a salad, I don't expect it to come with lots of calorie-laden crispy noodles. Portion sizes huge. They had some sort of computer glitch while we were there and lost my husband's order, causing his food to be very delayed, but they were very nice about it and din't charge us for it. Sweet potato fries (camee with my husband's burger) very good. I just come from a city where the food is generally lighter and fresher--which is what I prefer."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "Have been here many times previously, unfortunately this time was my worst experience. Service was nonexistentand the food was mmarginal. Extremely disappointed and embarrassed that I'd invited a friend to dine here. There were open tables in the dining room but they stuck us in the bar area. Won't be going back anytime soon and will recommend that others don't go here either."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "Great service from everyone. The oysters and salt & pepper shrimp was a great start to dinner. The Grilled salmon and Steaks were a hit! A nice dining experience."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "I travel about 40 weeks a year, eating on a generous expense account. I consider myself a bit of a "foodie". I get out to LAX several times per year and for me, I just love Paul Martins. They seem to take the normal fare and put small preparation twists that really hit the mark. PM' s is not particularly expensive either. I definitely would recommend this to someone looking for a tasty lunch or dinner."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Excellent food and service one would expect from a Paul Martin Fleming restaurant"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Tried the pork chop and the sauce did not enhance the favor. I will stick with what I have tried before."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "This is very rare for restaurant to really reserve a table during a busy weekend. I reserved a table at 6:30pm. They sit us right in no waiting at the all."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Great evening out. Our server was attentive, helpful and friendly. A+ for her. The mushroom soup she recommended was the BEST I've ever had. Calamari app and ahi entree were excellent. Bar was understaffed for a Friday night. Servers seemed to be stressed & unable to serve us in a timely manner. (We waited 10 minutes for our drinks) There were just too many people for 3 servers to handle. Also hostess got confused somehow about seating us. I checked in 5 minutes before our 7pm reservation and was told they needed a few more minutes to set the table. I said no problem, she could come get us in the bar and pointed to where our party was standing. 15 minutes later I had to go back and ask what happened. She said she forgot."

  • "Good food, great service, but this restaurant is quite loud!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "First visit to any Paul Martins on March 17. Impressed by server who was professional and helpful at all times. There was a Monday night winter special for two with a salad and main course each plus a bottle of wine (specially marked items on wine list). We chose a $56 bottle of one of the best reds I ever tasted, and our total bill was about $53. The food we chose was well presented and delicious. The server was fantastic and got a $20 tip. If all Paul Martins are as good as this I will choose them every time."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "This is a beautiful restaurant with a great bar, but is being horribly run. The food, however, was good. The service horrible, but I didn't fault the server. We were told there were NO servers for the dining room. No excuse given. There is no seating in the waiting and there was plenty of waiting. Lovely place with no direction. Will never go here again!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We've been to two different Paul Martin's and it is consistent: Good food and drinks and wine. Great place to a special occasion or just a lunch meeting. It really works all ways!"

  • "Great experience! Food was fantastic and exceeded our expectations. Everything about the restaurant was enjoyable and wonderful.."

  • "This was the first time I held a business dinner here and requested the east side of the restaurant where it is a bit quieter. the noise level was low to moderate and the ambience was fantastic. The server made great suggestions and my clients were thrilled. A great evening overall. Thanks."
