A word from Paul Martin's American Grill - Roseville
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.

    I have been here several times and this experience was terrible. We were a party of three and it took over TWENTY minutes to get our drinks. Ridiculous. My friend ordered the fish tacos and assumed it was white fish. When salmon came in her tacos, we were speechless. The menu makes zero mention of salmon in the tacos. It should be written in the dish explanation as many people do not enjoy salmon. The Manager came over to us and said it was the waiters mistake for not mentioning it. No accountability. She asked for the well done skirt steak instead. It came out VERY rare. My food came and my steak was very rare. I asked for medium well. It was awful. We ate what we could and decided not to return.

    The food and ambience was as always just fine, but it took much longer to be served for lunch and as the host, had to leave my guests to have coffee without me or I'd be late for a 2:30 pm mid town appointment, and arriving at 12:15, would have thought we'd be done sooner. I'll come back, but if this happens again, I probably won't return.

    I eat all over the United States and this is always one of my go to restaurants. The food is always excellent, fresh and local. I also appreciate that the prices are reasonable for the quality of food. A good value. My only criticism has been the wine list...I think it could be better. However, it is MUCH better than in was two years ago. Go to Paul Martin's American Grill!

    Although the restaurant was very croweded on a Saturday night and our meals took a little extra time to come out, when they did, the meals were perfectly cooked...ranging from the succulent lobster tails to the brick chicken to the basic french fries. They were all perfectly prepared and well worth the wait.

    I thought the restaurant was overpriced for the amount of food received. I ordered the short ribs. It should have been called the short rib. One piece of meat approximately 2 1/2 long by 3/4 of an inch wide of short rib. Oh, and a scoop of mashed potatoes. $25.00. Ridiculous. $9 for a kale salad. Two cocktails, two salads, and two entrees for $95.00 On the way home, I asked my wife where she would like to stop and get a bite to eat. I believe that when spending that kind of money on a meal, you shouldn't leave a restaurant satisfied. The food had good flavor and it would have been nice to enjoy more than three bites. Appetizer portions for slightly above average tasting food. I won't be back.

    Our server was friendly, efficient and fun. The cocktails/appetizers/dinner/dessert were totally on point. I didn't like waiting 10+ minutes for our table even though we had a reservation (it wasn't busy). If it was going to be that long, an invitation to wait at the bar would have been nice. Our server and the rest of the experience made up for it though. We always have a great night when we come here. Oh-the chocolate cake? Omg. My favorite cake in the world.

    Always enjoy this place. The food is always top notch! Love the menu changes once in awhile. Fresh organic salads, veggies & meats. Steak and bacon tacos were great when they had them. Bistro burger with mushrooms and jack cheese is also a favorite. Nice place to enjoy dinner with extended family, small group or romantic dinner for two.

    Atmosphere somewhat like a Ruth Chris Steakhouse (not quite but its less expensive), food is good, lots of choices, excellent service. Calamari may be the best I have ever had, crisp but light and melted in your mouth, not chewy at all.

    We enjoy the modern feel of Paul Martins , and it is reliable for good food & service. I usually rate the food very good, but my grilled salmon was slighty overdone this time. Hostess desk is always very nice with a smile hello and good bye...Table Service was prompt and friendly. We were seated at a booth as requested via open table. I believe this restaurant always aims to please!

    We have been many times and this time was terrible. We asked for a dark or amber beer and the waiter brought an IPA, which we sent back. The calamari was okay but a bit greasy, not crispy at all. The oysters looked dehydrated and broken up and there were no utensils. I sent them back. We had to ask for bread twice. The lobster special was rubbery and the mahi mahi was cold and slimy. We were overcharged $14, sent the ticket back. I had my hand in the air trying to get the floor manager but ended up walking to him. I complained about the food a no dessert for my husband's birthday. He asked if anyone knew (yes, two staff knew). I told him this was a terrible meal and why. He said, it's usually good & that is how much he cared.

    Great service by the waitress, however it took a while to get our food, and it took about the same time to get our dessert. This was about 11:30 a.m., so we were one of the first people there. It shouldn't have taken that long to get our food. But overall, it was good.

    While the menu sounded very promising, the food that came out was just kind of ordinary -- not bad but "nothing to write home about". And the service was just about the same. The waiter tried to be interesting but could not be found readily sometimes when we needed more water or something else. The place is attractive and could maybe be a very good restaurant if someone brings some sharp ideas to it along with focused servers.

    We came here for our 15th anniversary. The food was delicious! My husband was amazed how tasty his Caesar salad was! He also loved his Skirt Steak (though, the portion size was a little too small), and I enjoyed my Plank Salmon. With desert and no drinks, we spent 98$ for just the two of us. However, the food and the service were well worth it!

    We were seated early from our reservation time. Service was above excellent. Food was out standing, we had the kale salad and roasted corn soup to start. I had the short rib with mashed potatoes..my wife enjoyed a double thick pork chop. Both were prepared perfect. He had a super smooth bottle of red wine..dessert was 3 layer chocolate cake and a glass of myers port. Will return soon..

    Yes, all fives! Upon arriving we were greeted with "happy birthday" and immediately seated in a circular booth. The extensive wine list offered a perfect 2012 DUCKHORN chardonnay to accompany my just right grilled salmon steak with its bulgar wheat and arugula, spinach, asperegras salad beneath the salmon steak. My husband's creamy corn soup as well as his entry were delightful, as was my slice of dark, dark chocolate cake and its accompanying "happy birthday!" To our serendipitous surprise, we learned that the lady in the booth next to ours was also celebrating a birthday; she and I laughed and did our "high five" to complete a wonderful and unusual birthday lunch.

    We went for our anniversary. Our server, Nick, was exceptional; always giving us what we wanted without being too forward. The tomato and burreta salad was just OK—the tomatoes were not flavorful. The chimmichurri steak was tough and full of gristle, and the chimmichurri was flavorless. The corn soup and brick chicken needed salt but were otherwise tasty; in contrast, the mashed potatoes and french fries had too much salt (the fries had so much salt they were inedible). The banana cream pie was terrific and was a good end to a disappointing dinner (and saved this review from a one-star for the food). The food was too expensive to be this mediocre.
