We had a delicious meal, as usual. Our server, Courtney, took very good care of the five of us. We were so happy that we chose Paul Martin's to take our out of town guests. Can't wait to go back!

I'm combining 2 reviews in one as my visits were back to back in 2 weeks to take advantage of a special email deal introducing their new and improved menu. Honestly my friend and I stopped coming as frequently because frankly we got bored of the old menu after they took so many dishes off which we did express our disappointment.

So now the menu has some old favorites brought back with some additional offerings. Always a success when we make reservations through Open Table. We are always greeted right away upon entering. Service has always been consistently good. The first of our 2 visits we had a bill issue that was taken care of right away.

Food ordered was the Town Dock Calamari, Shrimp Cocktail, Prime New York Strip, Fresh Fish Tacos, Marinated Skirt Steak, Cedar Plank Steelhead Salmon and the Petrale Sole. All the food was cooked to request and good, exceptional? no, but good (maybe a tad too salty). It was nice to see after taking away some seafood choices and leaving only salmon as the restaurant fish they added back some fish choices! Yeah!

I'm sure to come back now that they've "Re-Added" back some more menu items. Consistant Food and Service.

Food was just ok. We had the Petrale Sole which was overdone.
Desert was nothing special, (chocolate cake) left a bitter after taste. Service was ok. Had to remind server numerous times to refill coffee.

Food is always good and service was great with Hannah. Lights are generally very bright over the tables that seat six and it takes away from the atmosphere.

Paul Martin's was our go-to place but the prices have increased to beyond high and the items on the menu have gotten weird. You can't get just plain good food any more. Brussel Sprouts arn't just cut in half and cooked and browned, not they are shredded. Who wants that? The Prime Rib dinner on Sunday has shot up to $33. Now higher than most steak houses and the portion isn't as large. What goes? If you want a simple pan fried sole watch out the coating is loaded with pepper to the point you can't eat it. We do not plan on returning.

This place is a neighborhood gem! The food is consistently good, as well as the service. Thank you management, (Clyde and Eric), for checking on me and my new guest that flew in from out of town. He really enjoyed the casual vibe and beautiful decor as well. The Cedar Plank Salmon was delicious!

Tried Paul Martin's American Grille while visiting Scottsdale.

Atmosphere of restaurant very nice, dim lighting, relaxing. The food I thought was just average for the prices paid. Service was above average I might add.

May have just hit an "off night" in terms of our party of 4.

 (Phoenix)·Dined on October 11, 2017

My linguini special was room temperature at best. The plate actually felt cool to the touch. The shrimp was oddly hard to cut with a knife not the normal texture to chew. The flavors were good but the fact that it was cold ruined it. I'd have complained and asked for a redo but then I'd have been behind my friends while eating and that is always a nuisance. Another diner said her quinoa bowl was barely warm too. Seriously, I've loved Paul Martin in the past so these two poorly presented meals were quite a disappointment. On the other hand, our third diner loved the fried chicken - so there you go.

Must have been some onions in the spinach that was the side
