Cannot beat the Sunday Prime Rib special. Had it last night for the 1st time and it exceeded my expectations. We will definitely be bcak on another Sunday for the Prime Rib. Sitting outside in 68 degree weather on the outdoor patio made the evening complete!

We dine at Paul Martin's fairly often, usually with friends, and typically have a good experience. That's why we keep coming back.

What a wonderful restaurant. From the moment you walk in you get a quick and tangible sense that you are in the presence of people who really care about your dining experience. From the from staff, through the bar tenders, through the servers and the manager, there is carefully attention to every detail of your experience. The food is fresh, honest, and really enjoyable. A great experience, a wonderful host, and a beautiful venue. I look forward to taking my family here again soon.

I love this restaurant. The food's very good and so is the service.

However, especially on a Saturday night, the parking situation is untenable. There simply are not enough parking spaces in this lot that has another restaurant and is adjacent to another lot that has THREE restaurants. Not only was there no place to park, the valet spots were full. I drove around for 20 minutes before getting lucky and finding a spot where someone was leaving.

Please, fix the parking problem.

Went for lunch in the patio lounge on a Saturday at 2:00 pm. Ashley our server was terrific from start to finish. Food portions and plentiful. Both the burger and fish tacos were excellent. Frys we cold and immediately replaced with a smile. Truly enjoyed it and relaxing.

Excellent service/ great staff / ambience was great. We had just dined at Paul Martin’s in Irvine and loved it so much we came back to Phx location. The fish tacos, which were so amazing in CA, were extremely fishy tasting - I should have mentioned it to my server, but she was so nice, and I felt bad. But it was pretty bad. Maybe just a bad shipment of fish.... But My family all loved their meals. We will come back - but will not order fish again.

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!

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.
