Wow, so impressed by the customer service and staff on my 1st visit. I made reservations for my best friend birthday and everything was exceptional. Social distancing and cleanliness was at an all time high. We were checked on frequently and provided a fabulous meal. I will definitely be returning.

We went the 2nd week that they were allowed outside seating and the food tastes old like it sat in the refrigerator the whole time they were closed. Even my chocolate cake tasted like it was stale. They have lost my business.

My Friend and I dined at Paul Martin for a lunch date. We bought two bottles of wine because the website stated they had a corking fee, however our server informed us they do not offer a corking service. Later the manager came by to ask about our dining experience we said we enjoyed the food however we were surprised that a restaurant of their caliber does not have a corking fee. The manager stated due to covid they no longer provide a corking service. Shortly afterwards a couple at the next table received corking service. My friend and I bought this to the attention of the manager informing him we purchased 2 bottles ($150)of wine because we were told they no longer provided a corking service however others were allowed to. The manager stated he would look into the matter, but he sent a manager in training to apologize but they did not remove the wine purchase from our bill. Only stating if we return in the future we can utilize the corking service. We found this response demeaning because due to their misinformation we paid an additional $150 and they did not compensate us. We understand mistakes happen however once those mistakes are bought to the attention of management the customer needs to be compensated.
