The food tastes great and looks good. We like how the restaurant looks. The waiter was attentive but did not try to push us out even after 2 hours.

I used to love Paul Martin’s. We were having an early Sunday dinner. What shocked me was how slow the service was. The waitstaff are nice but did not check with us. I had to seek out our waitress to see where our food was. Everyone thought the food was okay, but the meat in my French dip was overcooked.
The reality is service is everything and Paul Martin’s missed the boat. I do not plan to return.

Food was very good. I ordered blackened rib eye steak and it was superb. Service was excellent. I had a group of 11 and requested a more private area through my reservation. We were given a section all to ourselves. I would recommend Paul Martin's to others.

Went for my husband’s birthday. They sat us all the way on the other side of the restaurant where nobody was. It took a good 20 min for our waiter to show up. The food was extremely over priced for what you get. I had fish tacos & the fish was very try. I couldn’t eat the 3rd taco. No thank you. Very disappointed

Went for father’s 80th birthday with the family. Reserved table for party of 4 at 6pm. Was seated at 6:30. Waiting area was crowded, making us uncomfortable.

My note on the open table app for a requested singing of happy birthday was not provided, making our happy birthday experience not so fun. It was just another nite out experience.

Menu from Valentines was still available so we tried the Sea Bass and Lobster Ravioli, but found the fish spongy and not flakey. Edible but not as expected.

The staples of steak Filet and clam chowder was very good.

The waiter was exceptional but the hostess and needing to wait 30 min after reservation with 80yr old made our experience no so fun right at arrival.

I took my lovely date to dinner on Valentine’s weekend before taking her to a concert. We both loved the wine and blood orange margarita. The artichoke dip and flatbread were great starters. With every bite we talked to each other less but our eyes did all the talking about how the food was remarkably tasty. We loved the ribeye and fried chicken with elote! The brussel sprouts were so delicious! In the end, we ate what we came for, which was the succulent butter cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and fruits. Our host was fantastic and treated us with love. We were very impressed and can’t wait to go back! The entire staff was excellent as well. Thank you for a start to a great and memorable night.

Paul Martins was not very good at helping me order due to my food allergies. The chef should have been invited to our table to help me order. In stead the waiter told me that they were very busy due to Valentines Day and that the kitchen couldn't make some tarter sauce for my halibut so I ordered filet mignon that wasn't very tender. Then I ordered the sauteed brussel sprouts that were sauteed in vinaigrette and that fact wasn't listed on the menu and I'm allergic to vinaigrette. When I asked the waiter what the sprouts were sauteed in he told me and didn't offer the get me something else. All in all it wasn't a very good night for me. We will not be going there again...ever!

We were seated as soon as we checked in at the desk. The dining room was very nice and intimate. The wait staff was very attentive to our needs. The floor manager checked on us several times. The food was delicious. I had the clam chowder and halibut. Their wheat bread was delicious. The three of us really enjoyed our meal and will definitely go back again.

Great happy hour and great server, Gicelle. She kept my yo-go chicken Asian salad while we were still having drinks. Somehow or another , the to-go box was never found. And we left empty handed. Everything all good except that I ended up with no food to-go! Hmmm 🤔

This was our first time to Paul Martin's. Our server was exceptional and the manager paid us 3 visits throughout our meal to see how we were doing (very nice touch). The food was very good, much better that I even expected and steak was cooked perfectly. The margaritas were excellent. Rating was not 5 star because price was exceptionally high. $270 for the two of us is going to keep us from going often. We may consider going once a year, or so.

Great Food, Great Service. Impressed that the decaf coffee I ordered with dessert was fresh & hot. So often decaf is stale having sat in the pot too long.
