The outdoor patio was lovely for a nice warm summer evening. Plenty of heat warmers for colder evenings. Everything came out quickly or as expected - our cocktails, appetizer, entrees and dessert. The food was delicious and good size portions. We had the hoisin bbq ribs, French dip, buttermilk fried chicken, and warm butter cake. Our cocktails were okay. My partner’s old fashioned came with a lot of ice which watered down the drink and my lemon drop martini came with blue curaçao.

Everything was great except for 2 things. It seems like the drinks at $14-$16 range per drink is a bit high for a restaurant being in the suburbs and my wife's salmon was cold when ordered as a side on top of a sald. Instead of making a new one , someone decided to try and reheat the same piece which never works out, and it didn't

Good morning Drew, thank you for sharing your experience and we do apologize about the Salmon. We'll definitely communicate to the Chef team as our standard is to make a new one unless a guest wants us to heat something up. We do hope you will visit us again in the future. Sincerely, Management

Been to this restaurant many times since it opened. Maybe it was just a bad night for them. Our Server was wonderful. 4 adults at 530pm. I ordered the Bacon and Steak tacos. Far more onions in Tacos than Steak. Steak was gritty and over cooked. My friend had the Fried chicken dinner, he said it was over cooked. Our ladies had the Halibut dinners. Both said fish was tasted dry and was over cooked. We should have sent everything back but we didn't want to cause a scene. Looking back we have. Too much wine ahead of meal mellowed us out.

Reservation requested quiet booth because of hearing impairment. They seated us at the booth closest to door where there’s a lot of activity. I believe the lady that helped us actually seated us at the wrong table - she seemed new and I inexperienced. Appetizers were excellent but this is the first time I’ve been disappointed in the brick chicken. There was a lot of excess skin and inedible fatty parts and who ever cut the portion this time did not in my opinion trim it as they should have. I actually could not eat a good deal of it which is a first. The butter cake which is usually excellent was delivered quickly to the table but it looked like half of it had slid out of the cast iron pan and was missing in part of the pan and “tilted” wildly. It still tasted good what there was of it…. Our server was great but we’ve had her many times before and she’s usually good. Water glasses however were not kept filled. I’m was disappointed this visit. The new hires and challenges of staffing were apparent which is unfortunate. I always felt I could count on a good meal and standard of service through out….. it seems like ALL the restaurants I have been to of late are suffering.

Love Paul Martins but it seems they are having a tough time getting back into the swing of things. Might be staffing issues but the food took fairly long to get to us. Our particular server was not friendly or engaged at all, though some of the other folks that brought food to our table were better. The front host staff were fantastic and the food was very good.

The food and service were excellent. Only complaint is the soundtrack was late 90s rock and roll played at top volume. Great for a Saturday night at a bar, terrible for a nice restaurant with a mixed clientele leaning towards late middle-aged to 60s/70s. Otherwise, a fantastic experience!

We drove from Torrance Ca to meet halfway with my daughter who is from Santa Barbara. We are celebrating our 13yr old’s graduation. After long hour of driving in heavy La traffic, we made it. I was scared to book at Paul Martin’s since we don’t know how the food is. and driving 3hrs in total is totally worth it. Everything we ordered tasted good! Great service too!
