We really missed coming here and were happy to come back for our 16th anniversary on Thursday evening. The hostess, manager and server all greeted us and were so friendly and attentive. So happy they are still open. This is a wonderful place for great food and friendly atmosphere.

The food was just average. Our service was great and I prefer Paul Martin’s for Happy Hour not for dinner this is my 2nd time trying dinner and the food is just average.

We sat for 15 minutes before the manager finally came by to ask if our server came by, which at that time, no one had stopped by. Finally, the manager took our appetizer and drink order. Still, no sign of our server. Appetizers arrived and still no server. We ordered dinner with the manager and received our food. Still no server. As we were finishing our dinner, the server came by to offer a free dessert that the manager said to offer. Nice gesture for the obvious poor service. Got our dessert and the bill with the dessert charge! I understand times are different due to COVID but seriously?

Everyone at Paul Martin's was excited to be back at work. And it showed in the food and service. Easily the best meal I've had in three months.

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.
