Menu is limited and while our items were tasty, they weren’t anything special or uBowie.

The ribs were a little tough - I would suggest a warm towel after eating the ribs- no arugula on the salmon tacos - not very good.

My husband I were there for our anniversary. We loved the fact that it was a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere in a bit of an upscale place.
We both had steaks and they were cooked perfectly, seasoned well and had a great sear! Sides were delicious and the butter cake is something I’m still thinking about , it was that good! Our waitress, CJ, made the night all the more enjoyable as she was friendly and attentive. The manager stopped by the table and was friendly as well. DEFINITELY would recommend. Great for a date night or with a group of friends!

Made a 7:30 reservation for 10 to celebrate a birthday weeks before. Confirmed reservation day of. Didn’t get seated until 8:15. Fried chicken was almost burnt.

This was not our first visit to Paul Martin's. In the past, we have had a good dining experience at Paul Martin each time we visited. However, not on this visit. The fried chicken was overdone and slightly burned. The brick oven chicken was not cooked well enough. The chocolate cake with raspberry sauce looked nice, but was dry.

Our server was nice enough, but seemed rushed and rushed us through the dinner.

Unfortunately, it was the first visit for our friends who joined us for dinner. They were very disappointed.

Service was okay...I am probably a little sad about it as the server thought my friend and I were mother daughter (only 4-year difference). This kind of put an awkward damper on things.
Food was fantastic - especially the Brussel sprouts!

Our first experience with Paul Martin's American Grill was positive. Our most recent one was not. I ordered the halibut and my partner ordered the fried chicken. HIs chicken was decent, but a bit overdone. My halibut came out as hard as a rock and I didn't even try it. I sent it back and the manager returned a little bit later with a new piece of halibut. I cut into it and tried it. It was very chewy and not good. I was told it was fresh, but didn't believe that at all. I sent it back again, as I wasn't paying $36 for frozen halibut. The manager brought me salmon instead and it was much better. I appreciate the server and manager being friendly and helpful. I wasn't charged for the salmon. The service was very slow, probably because our server had 7 tables. There are too many good restaurants in Phoenix to have to deal with what we did.

I wanted to love this place. The menu was excellent and the ambiance was perfect. Unfortunately, the steak was overcooked and didn’t make it out with the sides and other entree. We appreciated that they knew better than to serve it, but didn’t make for a good food experience. Kids dessert never made it out either. Wine selection was awesome and the steak was excellent. Mixed review for sure, will try again.

Service was very good but the fish tacos were lousy. Overcooked halibut. Wine selection by the glass was decent. They have a good selection of food types and prices - hamburgers to filet.

My waiter James was the best I’ve ever had. I asked for an item that had been moved to lunch only, he got it for me anyway. I wanted a sweet beer, he brought me lemonade to mix with it. My friend asked for strawberry lemonade, which they didn’t have, but he offered to make her some with strawberries. Our service experience will be hard to find anywhere else.

Consistently excellent! I’m always confident if I bring a friend or a date to Paul Martin the food will be great, the service will be outstanding, and the management is superb. There is no question that it is the best restaurant in the city, if not the state of Arizona.

We went for dinner on New Years Eve. Despite being crowded, the service and food was terrific. The waitress was friendly and not hurried at all. And the appetizer and entrees were perfect. But the best of all was the BUTTER CAKE!!! Absolutely the best dessert ever! We're already looking forward to our next dinner there.

We had a wonderful experience. Our waitress, CJ, was delightful. She made several suggestions, when asked, and we tried them all. She was not wrong. Everything was delicious. We went for New Year’s Eve dinner and were not disappointed! C.J. made the experience delightful!

Met long-time out-of-town visitors for an early dinner. Nice cozy booth to sit in. Service was good with occasional interruptions. Noise level was a little elevated and restaurant was busy. Manager checked on us towards the end to determine happiness level.

Enjoyed Asian Chicken Salad. Guests had BBQ Ribs, Shrimp Pasta dish, and Beef Short-Ribs. All tasty.

Review: Extensive menu with many options, from entree salads, hamburgers and upscale entrees. Nice atmosphere. Good happy hour if you get there early. Food tasty.

Meh. Typical over-priced steakhouse trying to have a 1950's ambiance. For their prices we expected better food. Though everything was properly prepared, none of it was anything special. No wow factors or flourishes, which is what we might have expected based on others' reviews. Our server was not as educated on the menu's ingredients as we've found at most of the other restaurants in the area.
