It’s a nice restaurant with a nice and diverse menu. I have one unfavorable comment and that is that they use a ridiculous amount of salt in their dishes - I would go back and request no salt. From the French Dip to the Deviled Eggs to the Fried Calamari, the amount of Salt was crazy. The French dip was inedible. Excellent Service, Great Dessert, but that salt…

Brussels sprouts great.
Roasted cauliflower very good.
Ribeye tough, very average.
Short ribs not satisfying.
Wish they would bring back skirt steak.
Won’t be returning often.

My wife and I went to happy. The food was good but the ribs was very dry and mostly bones. We go there all the time for lunch and we thought we want to try the happy hour again since Covid-19.
We will go back and give it another try.

Strange to go to a nicer restaurant and order a dinner entree and not get any bread... but otherwise, the food was very good and the service was as well. Would go back for sure.

We liked the food (even returned the next night for another dinner), great wine and the service was good. But the music was horrible! I don’t want to hear any song that is played on KROQ in a restaurant like that. Maybe it stood out to us because there was a speaker right above our table, but it just didn’t seem like the right place for that music. The second night we went had much better music!

A very enjoyable New Year's Eve. Our table was ready on time, Jesse O. took very good care of us, and the food was tasty and cooked correctly. Excellent appetizers & desserts too! Try the Butter Cake. We'll be back!

Nice evening, good wine selection, good menu, and good service.
Our food was delicious, I got a prime rib, super savory and nice horseradish with a bit of a kick. Swapped out asparagus for the mashed potatoes but had a taste of my husbands and they were creamy delicious (just trying to choose greens).
Our server was super attentive and friendly.
Certainly going back

Paul Martin's staff are so helpful. And their dinners are delicious. In fact, they often have superior specials, like the prime rib. It is not only tender, but it tastes sooo good! Even their normal hamburgers are exceptional.

Our experience was tainted by having to evacuate after ordering, but prior to having our food served due to the fire department detecting carbon monoxide.

This is our go-to restaurant when we want good food and reliably outstanding service. We have never once been disappointed with the service, not once. The food is just right -- a step or two above casual dining, it's as nice a night out as you want it to be. We love the ambiance and the food is high-quality while not reaching the fussiness and small portions of super fine dining.

Over priced food and drinks took too long to be served. Food wasn’t that great. E.g garlic green beans didn’t have much garlic and weren’t trimmed. Sandwiches fell apart at first bite cause bottom bun was soggy

Everything was great from the food to the service. It was busy but the staff were efficient and friendly. Food cooked to perfection. Our only complaint was our booth was in the front so it was chilly especially when people came in and out.

Not enough waiters. They didn’t have food items that were on the menu. This place was one of the hot spots for dinning not anymore. Food was ok. Portions half of what you used to be,no music in the background . So disappointed with the whole dinning experience. I’ll be surprised if it survives one more year.

They really are cutting back. No complimentary bread. $5.00 for a skimpy baguette roll. The house salad looks like it came from the airport. I have dined there many times if I wanted to save money I would eat at Burger King.

The food was fine, but not great. We had a new waiter that did not really know what was going on. He was not familiar with the menu and really green. I know good help is hard to find. They no longer serve bread, you have to pay for it.
The ahi tuna came out frozen and we had to wait for it to thaw. Overall very mediocre.
Won’t rush back.
The restaurant is pretty.

I ordered my steak med/rare.
It came to the table practically mooing.
It tasted good and they corrected the issue but it’s a red flag when you’re paying $45 for a steak and it doesn’t come right the first time.
