Service was attentive and the food was fresh and well prepared and plated. I requested Salmon rare and the chef did it to perfection.

It was a beautiful afternoon for outdoor dining. Unfortunately, a table of noisy kids all under 10 nearby were quite annoying. Parents sat at another table! Maybe a kids section should be considered...

I’d been there before COVID so it was different for me to have to sit outside but I ended up really enjoying myself. My husband his first time really enjoyed the ambiance of the evening. We definitely will do date night again at Paul Martin’s.

My filet mignon was phenomenal. The Mac N Cheese was really great as well. I will be coming back sometime soon. Our total with tip and tax was about $170 for a glass of wine, skirt steak meal, filet mignon, and short rib meal. We thought it was well worth it. Parking was free. $170 for one of the best steaks I've ever had. We considered going to another steakhouse like Mastro's but we easily would of spend triple the amount and no way would the quality have been any better. I TRULY recommend this restaurant.

It had been a while since we had been to Paul Martin’s. Before COVID, was our go to place. Food was good, just did not seem as though the quality was where it was prior. Our server was great, food came in a timely manner, just the quality of the food was not what we remembered. We have had many real good meals at Paul Martin’s so maybe just an off night. Overall, going forward, I would give it another chance.
