Great spot for a nice dinner! Menu was varied and our waiter made an excellent wine suggestion. Nice array of CA wines to chose from.... Lively atmosphere but still calm enough for our business dinner.

Paul Martins has lost its mojo. They have not invested in their infrastructure and the execution has deteriorated that it’s on par with a mid-scale family restaurant like Olive Garden. I hope they choose to get focus on execution and refreshing the interior...

normally this place is great and we have been coming for years to prove the point. My wife's plank salmon was perfect and my son's filet was excellent. I had the corned beef special and it was stone cold as well as the plate. the waiter took it back and brought another heated version but of course my wife and son were over half finished with their meals by the time he returned and I had kind of lost my appetite by then. I wound up taking most of my meal home and made a sandwich the next day. usually in nicer restaurants, a blunder like that would be assuaged by a free dessert or maybe a coffee, or even an appology, although not expected, it would have been appreciated. we will return because we like the place, the food, the staff et al, but the cold food and the subsequent wait left a bad taste in my mouth, well, maybe not bad...just chilly.

Our group selected the corned beef & cabbage dinner for St Paddy’s day. The curbed beef was truly excellent: good portions, very flavorful and lean! However, the chef committed a major faux pas with the decision to grill the cabbage instead of the traditional boiling treatment. The cabbage turned out quite poorly. Next time I hope they boil the cabbage instead. The noise levels in this venue have increased in recent years. Management should consider installing some decorative, noise-absorbing sound tile in the ceiling and walls. Why do people have to create so much noise when dining??

The staff is extra friendly and attentive. For being a party of 15 they sure had everything handled and well taken care of. And their margaritas might be the best margarita I’ve had since moving to Arizona

My wife and I had dinner at Paul Martin's. We made a reservation for 7:30 and we were there on time. Unfortunately, reservations there are only a suggestion. We waited in the foyer for fifteen minutes, made a complaint, but told them we would be moving to the bar. The receptionist said that a text would be sent when our table was ready. After another fifteen minutes without word, I went back to the front to check on our table. Luckily the manager was there. I vented and was told that it was my fault because I couldn't be found. I explained that I was waiting for a text, which the receptionist confirmed. The manager then became quite apologetic and we were seated almost immediately.

Other than that, we would return to the restaurant because the menu was quite extensive and everything was well prepared. We started with a grilled artichoke. My wife ordered a salmon salad and cleaned her plate. I had a French Dip sandwich, which was large enough to do justice to a New York deli. We passed on dessert. The service was exemplary. The manager comped our appetizer and we left satisfied.

Took a long time to get served and can't say the place was that busy. Steak Cobb salad was ok but the chicken in my wife's smoked asian chicken was so heavily smoke flavored she could not eat it. Have now been there once, so not likely to go back again

Great service and friendly manager. My wife ordered the buttermilk chicken and loved it. I had the blackened ribeye and the first half was perfect! The second half was not edible as I struggled to cut through it with my knife. Quite odd as it was cooked to medium rare. Hopefully it was just a bad cut of beef

Went here with a group of 7 guys for a special occasion. We made a reservation and had to wait at the bar for 15 min but for a large group, that’s reasonable. Our server was excellent, very attentive and helpful with recommendations. Steaks were well cooked except for one but the server immediately brought it back to have a fresh steak cooked to the requested temp. They do a fire seared steak so it has a nice char. I enjoyed it but one my friends wished it was more well seasoned. They were very juicy though. Sides were delicious as well. Bottom line they catered to our large group very well and the service was excellent.

For a semi high dollar restaurant we expected more. The pork ribs were good but smothered in a too intense sauce; should have asked for it on the side. French fries which was with it were over fried and total sticks. Shrimp linguine was decent. Happy hour menu only available at bar stools in the bar not at a booth in the bar area which seemed odd and they should give notice of that on their website. Calamari app was quite good.
