Paul Martin’s Scottsdale never fails to impress. Service, I’ve found, is always outstanding and they are happy to make the customer satisfied. Love the menu and our waiter last evening was fabulous!
We’ll definitely be back again!

Really surprising that this establishment would allow the kitchen staff to make so much noise. Dropping pans, banging dishes. Very uncomfortable place. Food was average, server was excellent. But not on the same level as Houston’s for sure.

Very poor experience!! We have been regulars at Paul Martin’s (and Flemings) but last night’s experience marks our last visit to PM. Will gladly pay for excellent food, service and experience but this time was completely NOT WORTH THE VALUE!
SERVICE: Initially okay at very beginning, but lack of attention in latter half. Very chatty server. Didn’t bother checking in when our main course arrived. Forgot our salads before main course! Forgot the steak knives for our steak and ribeye, but server busy chatting with other customers. Forgot basic condiments. Lack of sincere concern when discussed w management.
FOOD: The appetizer pizza was good. Cajun ribeye just ok—there was no Cajun spice to taste. We were served obviously old poor tasting horseradish w absolutely no kick. Finally brought fresh horseradish—big difference! Blonde manager’s response, “well we do refrigerate it”. Also they can’t make a simple grilled cheese sandwich for my child, like they always have—this is a very simple menu item!
DRINKS: Lack of consistency—only got the muddled fruit in second drink. Small drink for the price. And paper straws really just suck!
COMMUNAL TABLE: Not comfortable, thick table, not roomy for legs and high table top for seating provided.
MANAGEMENT: Lacked basic customer service skills, no sincere interest in our meal and experience, no sincere concern when I relayed above issues to her. I would appreciate a response from PM management but won’t hold my breath.
CONCLUSION: We should’ve gone to the restaurant down the road instead of Paul Martin’s!

We found our waiter to be on the mean side. He was also inattentive and very unmotivated to make our experience positive. He actually threw the check at us and complained when we asked for separate checks. The food was ok but certainly not worth the price they charged. We found them to be very expensive. The whole experience is not one I'd consider repeating or recommending.

Chicken was bloody and pink and manager pretty much told us that it was suppose to be blood inside the meat. That is not what we were told growing up. Chicken is not an item that you order extra rare.

This was our first visit. We were a bit surprised...in a good way...at the casualness. We had a reservation, arrived at the appointed time, and were seated promptly. We are a very diverse group of appetites so the menu served us well. Our server was excellent and we were able to carry on conversation fairly easily. A very nice experience.

We went to Paul Martin's for dinner to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday. The place was very crowded, there was hardly any room to walk in between them. I keep getting bumped or my hair pulled when people would walk by. The wait staff was friendly, but the food was mediocre and not worth the price point. Fortunately, my mother-in-law enjoyed her meal and had a great time. But I will not come back to this place again.

It was okay..I ordered a medium rare steak and it was completely cooked through. When they brought another one out it was also pretty cooked. The manager watched my dissatisfaction on my face when I cut into the second and said “I’ll just live with it I’m not gonna send it back again”. We ended up just giving that to the dog.
