Enjoyed our meal and John, our server, was terrific! Met a girlfriend for dinner. Happy that the music level is such that you can actually talk and not shout. Food is always consistently good.

Sunday, early afternoon. Sat at a booth inside. Waiter was very attentive.

When asked if we wanted bread and we answered yes, we were surprised at the three very small pieces we received. We were also disappointed at the greasiness of the $18 appetizer calamari (a bit pricey!)

The ribeye and mashed potatoes at $44 was good, but plain. At that price, we expected at least a salad or other veggie to be included. The salmon sandwich with avocado, arugula, pickled onion, and remoulade was good, but skimpy on the salmon and avocado and too generous with the sauce, which made the sandwich mushy. The included sweet potato fries were great, as were the Red Sangria and Manhattan drinks.

Maybe it was an off day versus the last time we went when we were in town.

I would give the service 10 stars if I could. Our server was absolutely fantastic. We had a large group and he made sure the evening was a memorable one. This place will get our return business for sure.

Went to Paul Martin’s -Scottsdale this week. Was looking forward to returning to a favorite recent of ours in the past and ended up very disappointed.
Everything was very hurried. We were in no hurry and were rushed in and out in approximately 35- minutes. Even our waiter was surprised how fast entrees came out.

Our server Courtney made us want to come back every week. He deserves a raise and a promotion. We were kind of in bad moods and he lifted our spirits made our dining experience wonderful and I wish every server in the world was like him.

We have driven by many times and I’ve always said let’s try that someday so we gave it a try last night and really were pleased. The ambience is very nice and quiet. The wait staff was very good. Our waiter was Steven and he was very good and knowledgeable about the food items on the menu. My husband had the fried chicken and had a delicious honey sauce to go with it. We really enjoyed our evening and I would highly recommend it

We had an amazing time and the staff is so friendly and inviting, especially the GM who made it a point to have great conversation with us. We really loved our apps and entire meal, including the final course - dessert! Definitely recommend you try the butter cake. It is out of this world! Only star dinged was on service because it did take awhile for us to get our drinks (like 15-20 min - and one was just a lemonade for my daughter). They weren't super busy so not sure what was up! Other than that, we thought everything was 5 stars! It is a bit on pricey side but well worth it for a special occasion.

Food has always been very good here so it was a huge disappointment to have the server argue with us when she brought the wrong food. I don’t think we have ever had anything like that happen in any restaurant before. In a time where a lot of businesses and restaurants are very short staffed from the pandemic it is still no excuse for poor customer service.

Our server was excellent and patient and knowledgeable. The cocktails were great even if they don't have absinthe so couldn't make a Sazerac, lol. Food was just right. Our first time there and we will return.

The food was delicious, but overpriced, especially since we had to ask for bread. Also, we were on a date to celebrate both my fiancee's birthday & our anniversary which was noted on the reservation. Neither was ever mentioned & we were seated next to a group of loud, drunken females. It was not the romantic date experience that I was seeking when I made the reservation.

From the receptionist to the server and the table attendants, the service was top shelf. Took my girl for a date night, never been before, glad I made the reservation. The atmosphere was up beat and more on the sophisticated side, the food was delicious and the service very professional. And, our waiter was right when he said they have the BEST butter cake in the valley. Better than those other guys! I love my butter cake and I have to admit, Paul Martin's butter cake is the best I've had. We had a wonderful date night. Will definitely come back for more. Two thumbs up!

Our group of six had a wonderful meal during Restaurant Week. We all had the 3-course menu which consisted of a choice of 3-appetizers, 3-entrees and 2 desserts. I had the short ribs - among the best I've ever had. And the Wedge salad was unbelievable - seemed almost infused with delicious blue cheese dressing - was the best wedge I've ever had, and I've had a few! The fresh fruit dessert with whipped cream was pure pleasure.
Everyone at our table was happy with their meal and we felt we hogged the table a bit having not seen each other for a long time, but the staff was wonderful and left us to visit even though the restaurant was totally packed. Great night - thank you staff and chefs.
