    Went for Father’s Day. Meal was not extraordinary. Quinoa dish was soaking in liquid. Salmon was well cooked though. Shrimp appetizer was nice. Was looking forward to the fried chicken premix fixe meal but it was not available. Unfortunately not impressed.

    Paul Martin's - AustinResponded 2 days agoHello. Thank you for reaching out and providing some feedback from your visit. I do apologize about the quinoa bowl and fried chicken LTO. Between prep time and waiting for product, such a popular item can run out from time to time and I am sorry it was during your visit. Great news is we will have to all summer long and we would love to have you back in. Please reach out directly and I would be happy to make a reservation. Thanks again for your time and have a great weekend. -Kris

    We’re frequent customers of Paul Martin’s and service and food are hot and miss. We went for Father’s Day and did not have a good experience. Our waiter took a long time to get to check on us, refill drinks, bring plates after appetizers we’re brought out. He forgot to put in my sons order and our food came out and his did not. We had to flag him down because he didn’t check on us after our food was delivered. We asked him to check on my sons food and he said he would. He didn’t come back. Instead someone else came and apologized. We waited another 15-20 mins before it came out. Waiter never acknowledged the mistake that he forgot to put in his food. Food was not hot and just ok.

    Paul Martin's - AustinResponded 2 days agoGood evening. Thank you for reaching out and I apologize for the bad experience and slow service. That is on us, we did not allow him ample time to care for his tables while we were busy. The kids meal was a kitchen error in which I sent a manager to address and made sure to take care of that item. It does not change how things went for you but thank you again for allowing us to address these opportunities. I would love to have you back at some point, please reach out directly and I would be happy to help. Thanks again, take care. -Kris

    The fact that happy hour was not available on the patio wasn’t announced prior to our visit. Our meal was okay, but not worth $40 per person.

    Paul Martin's - AustinResponded on June 19, 2022Hello and thank you for reaching out. I wanted to apologize on the miscommunication on our part regarding happy hour and the patio. Generally on holiday weekends we do not offer happy hour, but that is normally just the day of the holiday itself. That is our bad and I apologize. Next time you are around please stop in and introduce yourself, I'd love to say hi. Thanks, Kris!

    Nice location in Domain. No issues both food and service were good but the restaurant was out of prix-fixe menu items at 6.00 pm which is pretty early to be out of your special. Ordered a different item and it was good. Will go back again.

    Excellent food & service. Yummy deviled-eggs to start. The braised short-rib was melt-in-your-mouth tender, and the butter cake is so rich and delicious it can be shared by a table of four. High-quality ingredients, beautifully presented.

    It was my birthday dinner. I had a reservation for 7pm but was running late and they were able to move my party up to 8pm. That was a good start to a nice evening. Our server was kind but for a Saturday night we did have to ask his trainee for other items since he was busy elsewhere. Service was decent, food was great. At checkout, the server did not split the tickets, he brought just one ticket with gratuity included. We threw down our cards with some cash and told the server to add the cash first, then charge the remaining balance on the rest of the cards. He proceeded to say “the computer will split it automatically”. He walked away, did the deed, and when he came back, dropped off the checks. We noticed he did not add the cash to our bill and kept the cash in his pocket instead of applying it to our bill. In order to avoid having to void several payments, we decided to just leave and not make a big deal about it. Overall it was a decent experience and would go back but not for any special events.

    The food was just ok. My $50 steak was something I would expect from a low end steakhouse. It was cooked to order but definitely wasn’t a $50 steak. The drinks were ok and the side of brussel sprouts were basically inedible. The marinade from the brussel sprouts consumes my plate and ruined the flavor of my steak. Disappointing night of celebration. Try 2. #imdone #atmosphereonly

    Check in, seating and service were all really well done. The food just wasn’t that great unfortunately. I had the Alaskan halibut and was served with some goopy sauce that reminded me of canned turkey gravy. The couscous mixed veggies were really good My wife’s filet mignon was ok. It kind of looked like it was cooked sous vide and lightly done on the outside to add color. The mashed potatoes were just ok For what we paid, the food was very underwhelming. At least throw in a side salad! My martini was pretty good. No issues there and same for the wine We were disappointed that so many people were dining with ball caps and cut off jean shorts etc. nothing really you can do about that but I was hoping for an overall classier crowd.
