their new decor was beautiful - service was very slow because they were too busy on a Sunday early evening - some of the staff were huffy to us about the slow service
Had some great food and wine. They thought we waited too long for our appetizer and gave it to us free, even though we had no idea that it was a long time. Thanks for looking out for your guests so well!
I had a reservation for 5:00pm. When my family (+ 3 children - ages 10; 12; 14) arrived at this time, the hostess said she went to check on our table. She went back and forth a couple of times, and had brief discussions with one of the managers. We waited for around 10-12 minutes, and I was puzzled because I already had a reservations. We were eventually seated, but we didn't like the table that was located in a busy area with lots of walking traffic from both waiters and also customers , so we requested another table. The hostess accommodated us, and it was much nicer and in a less "busy" area. I was a little bothered at first because I got the impression that the delay was due to our hostess/manager deciding to change our table location. I could be wrong, but that is how I felt.
The food was good, but nothing impressive to tell all my friends about. We visited for during the Christmas season of 2016, and I thought the food was better before. We were also celebrating my wife's birthday, and overall we had a nice time.
My husband and I planned a belated Valentines and we were NOT dissapointed . Great staff
The short ribs and brick chicken were excellent. As always the food and drinks were very tasty. Was disappointed in our table crammed between two other tables, it was very awkwardly close to both other parties especially for a date. The s’mores sundae was insultingly small, we should have sent it back. I’ve never seen such a small scoop of ice cream, if you could call a scoop. It’s a $9 ice cream sundae - it should have been a decent sized dessert considering it’s mostly ice cream.
It was our first time eating at Paul Martins and we were pleasantly surprised. The salt and pepper shrimp was delicious. We asked to have a few different sauces. I loved the cocktail sauce and my husband loved the chili aioli. The quinoa bowl looked delicious, and They were able to accommodate my request to have salmon instead of chicken for a small extra charge. It was amazing. The best blistered tomatoes I've ever had! The salmon and veggies were perfectly cooked. My husband had the ribs and fries and he was not disappointed either. Great service and nice ambiance. We will definitely go back and we are happy to have another go to restaurant for date night.
Our server was awesome and the food was excellent. The restaurant has a great vibe and well decorated.
Best crab cake ever! The wait service was a bit slow but kind. The host/hostesses were so welcoming.
The filet was amazing and my wife really enjoyed the Asian salad. She also had the best mojito she’s had in a long time. But the chocolate cake was WOW!
Busy Valentine’s Day May have been the reason for the slow service, pricey but expected for the Spectrum, will definitely return.
The food tasted amazing, we had crab cakes, the Red fish, Steak (although this was nice it was just a piece of steak on a plate with 4 x pieces of sweet potato) it tasted great but looked a little boring
The service was terrible, really let the meal down, 20 minutes for a bottle of corona when there were 3 x tables in the restaurant is rather pathetic, and our kids meal which we ordered as soon as we sat down came out after our appetizers and was the last main meal to be bought to the table.
Id probably go again during the happy hour to give it another go but definitely not for an occasion meal again.
Bottom line is I understand that nothing I write will make any difference in the big picture. However I still feel that something should be said.
Paul Martin management: $40 steak choices... really??
Where is the ocean and/or the glorious view?
What on earth justifies that you can get that price?
A nice ambience and overall fun restaurant. However, the food is not quite up to par with other good restaurants. For example, when you order filet mignon, it does not come with any house made sauce - you get A1 sauce instead! We had a large group of 16 for a birthday celebration and we had only one waitress helping, who was also serving a few other tables! So the service was inadequate. I mainly recommend the restaurant for its ambience alone - so a good place for drinks and appetizers with friends.
Food was excellent, but we were seated r at a table that nearly butted up against the diners next to us. That felt a bit like dining at a Denny’s booth.
Steaks are a bit pricey, as they only include one side dish, but all entrees were delicious.
Food and service was great!
