This is my second time at Paul Martin’s and it was just as great as the first! The atmosphere, staff, service and food is impeccable. My girlfriend and I was deep into catch-up conversations and ordered a bottle of Prosecco around closing and they let us finish after while they were cleaning.

We were there for a reservation for four people. Asked to be placed in the happy hour waiting queue, and never got called. Checked in with the waiters 4 times, until the happy hour ended and we finally had to leave cause they let everyone in but us, even those who came after us. We were discriminated.

Not impressed with the menu. Prices were high for the amount of food you received. Would not go back there again.
Waitress was very attentive and she was training someone, so that was nice, but was not impressed with the food at all.

Went there for my wife's bday. Great ambiance, we chose the patio for seating.
Server was very kind, food was amazing - all dishes excellent.
Our server suggested butter cake in the end and oh boy! it was to die for.
Best of all, we did not feel sluggish in the night or next day - It means that the quality of food and ingredients used were of best quality.

For the class and stature of the place you expect people not to wear tank tops and flip-flops. Seem like they can improve upon the dress code.

I enjoy this restaurant and the casual dining experience. I've been there many times and always come away satisfied. Their salmon dishes are very good as are their salads.

I was disappointed that the parking across the street was so expensive....I normally used their valet parking which was cheaper...but that isn't open so we got charged 17.50 for a lunch parking!

It was our first time dining here. My husband ordered filet mignon and I got the rib eye. Both steaks were amazing... right up there with the higher priced steakhouses. We personally liked that there was just the meat and potatoes on the plate and not a lot of other stuff you're probably not going to eat anyway! We decided to forego the appetizer and opted for dessert since it was my husband's bday... should have gotten the appetizer. Cheesecake was ok but nothing special. Not a deal breaker. Will definitely go back!

We love this restaurant. My wife had the salmon sandwich, and the sweet potato fries were a perfect accompaniment. I had the salmon salad, paired with the Stone tangerine IPA on draft, and the kids enjoyed burgers with fries. There is something for everyone. It was all delicious, and the service was top notch.
