Place was clean and ambiance was great and so was the food. Colin was an awesome server and very attentive and friendly. Management was very welcoming and checking in to see if we needed anything. Great service. Will be back again and we will make sure that Colin is our server. Thank you...

Food was very good, but I wish my poached egg on crabcake benedict was more runny! Server was knowledgeable, personable. Outdoor area was clean, low level noise, and great for weather-related ambiance!

Butter cake is a must. Service was perfect. We ate on the patio nice and relaxing. Perfect couples date night.

Very friendly and efficient staff. Food was mostly excellent, with just a few missteps. The fried chicken is awesome. Salads are very good, as was the pasta. I think the cocktails could be improved a bit.

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!

It had been far too long since we were able to dine at what was one of our pre-pandemic favorites and they didn't miss a beat. The food and service were excellent as always and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. My wife and I were both a bit surprised that there was no social distancing among the tables but were not put off by it.

Good place for casual dining; good place for a last-minute reservation. Very good wine carte, especially the selections marked with a red glass in the menu. Good food — enjoyed my skirt steak. Interior needs some updating, but the very fact it’s open at full is great.

We sat outside and had to call a server over after several servers walked right past us for at least 10 minutes after we got seated. Once we got someone over the service was excellent as was the food. The patio tables were a bit uncomfortable as it was hard to move your legs around under the table, looking forward to being comfortable enough to eat indoors again.

The hostess was excellent, service started slow but improved to very good. Food was not as up to the price point. Ambience just ok, some of the signage for specials makes it look too much like a lower priced chain for the price point.

First time to eat inside in a year after Covid. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Paul Martin’s. The food was excellent, our server was extremely attentive and offered great suggestions and without pause, order the butter cake for dessert!!! With 2 hard core chocolate lovers in our group, they both agreed that the butter cake was better than the chocolate cake. High recommendations from our group!

Food was spectacular. Sat on the patio which was quiet and pretty with market lights. Unfortunately we had to ask over and over again for someone to put on the heaters as it was really cold. That took over a half hour for someone to show up and finally help us. That out a total damper on the night. We asked for bread and that didn’t show up either so we had to ask another server. It didn’t seem too slammed and I noticed other tables getting food, bread and heater service so I’m not quite sure why we had this experience. Again, the food was fantastic but it was dampened by being neglected.

Excellent Mother’s Day brunch experience. Only issue was that they were not prepared for the number of reservations and placed us on a table in the grass near main intersection. Was both hot and noisy, and we had to wait to move. Other parties expressed frustration, too. I feel that this could have been better planned for since tables were selected at time of res. Once we were moved, everything was great. Food was delicious, drinks that were included were generous and we left happy.
