Paul Martin's American Grill - Irvine
Mom's Day DinnerWe had the whole family (6 of us) for Mom's day. The prime rib and hanger steak were excellent. The oysters were fresh and the teenagers LOVED the burgers and fries. Big portions on the burger/fries. Really nice place for Mom's Day dinner.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMRefreshingNice new concept. Fresh organic and tasty.

Loved the ambiance, enjoyed the the raved about, braised short ribs, which fell apart at the touch of my fork and melted in my mouth. Made from scratch desserts were flavorful. Great experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVE PAUL MARTIN'S!!!I was first introduced to Paul Martin's a year ago and have gone back quite a few times. The restaurant is not close to my home but is right across the street from my work. I have eaten there for lunch numerous times and a couple of times for dinner right after work (avoiding the traffic).4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPolished CasualNice lively ambiance. Casual yet finished.

Our service was fantastic. I will without a doubt be going back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday Brunch at Paul MartinsThis was our first visit to this now 2 year old restaurant. Parking via Valet is right outside the door, so very handy. The restaurant opens at 11. We arrived a couple of minutes before out 11:15 reservation. There was one other couple just behind us and a ringing phone. The phone got priority. More staff arrived in a minute or two, so not a big deal, but that is what hold buttons are for.
Food was fresh, hot, good, and delivered to the table for our meal. This brunch includes an opening fruit bowl, choice of beverages (including a short list of alcohol items) and one's choice of several entrees. Also very good bread and butter in ample supply. All this for just $19 per person. Definitely recommend this restaurant.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat EatWe order three fish plates and they were delectable. Waitress was attentive and helpful.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDynamic!PM has it all.

Comfortable place to enjoy food and beverage.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable evening. IVery enjoyable evening. I came for my boyfriend's 30th birthday and our server (Michael) was fantastic. Very friendly, great tips, and pleasant. Our food was delicious (Brick Chicken & Ribeye). I would definitely come again. The caesar salad was pretty good. The bacon mac & cheese was good (not amazing). The complimentary bread was oddly the worst thing about our meal which I'll take any day over my food being bad. It was cold (almost like it was refrigerated) and a bit hard. Might have been delicious toasted just a bit.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food for value; excellentGreat food for value; excellent service..love Paul Martin!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThey have a great menu. FavoriteThey have a great menu. Favorite menu items: short rib (served as a thick slab, but pulls apart with your fork so easily, then melts in your mouth), butter lettuce salad, and calamari.
Has a good menu of current drink specials. Nice ambiance - fairly loud when there are many diners. Wood-rich atmosphere, with emphasis on wine and local cuisine.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThey accommodated my requestsThey accommodated my requests for a private booth. I'm glad I made reservations for lunch this was a popular spot!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great...withEverything was great...with the exception of the artichoke. We were very disappointed with the artichoke. It didn't have a dipping sauce or much flavor. That is the one item that I would NOT recommend.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second trip toThis was my second trip to Paul Martin's. I went a week ago for lunch w a girl friend and enjoyed it so much I told my husband that was the place for date night. I love that much of the menu is organic and some locally sourced. You have to get the Mac & Cheese and the Wild Mushroom soup is possibly the best I've found yet. I also ordered the Jumbo Prawn Cocktail. The shrimp were actually jumbo and the house made cocktail sauce was great. Definitely a place to try.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed brunch with my daughter.Enjoyed brunch with my daughter.

I've been for brunch and dinner and the food is great every time. Prix Fixe brunch is great. Includes a cocktail. I love their Bloody Mary that comes with a slice of bacon.
