The dirty martini I had was the best dirty martini I’ve had in like 5 years...Kudos to the bartender!!! The spinach artichoke dip was fantastic. Then the Buttercake was to die for!!!
It was nice food was good!
Food was very good, but a little pricey. Overall a good experience.
Our service was meh… server took way too long to stop over and check-in with us on a regular basis (as we watched tables next to us have wonderful service) We had to ask a different server for assistance with an order and basically were told she wasn’t our server… (not great customer service). Food and drinks were great. Service was lacking. We made a reservation for 5. As we were wrapping up at 6:20 the hostess actually came over and asked us to leave since the next party was ready to be seated. This was incredibly rude. Seriously need to work on your customer service overall.
Food and ambiance was fantastic. Looking forward to my next visit.
Amazing food, great service and atmosphere. Just the right place to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
Hi, Lars! This is great to see. I am pleased to hear that you and your significant other were able to come into our space at Paul Martin's and celebrate. We appreciate the positive review and support. Thank you! -Kris
Paul Martin's is one of my go-to restaurants in Austin when I want a good meal with good company. Always top-notch.
Hi, Randy! We appreciate the shout out and the support alike. Next time you are around be sure to ask for me so I can introduce myself. Thanks again and have great night! -Kris.
I have eaten here before and the food is always good. I think I just got the wrong dish this time.
Good evening! Thank you for reaching out and I apologize you did not agree with what you had. Next time you are in the area please let me know and I'd be delighted to make sure you have something you can enjoy. Thanks again, Kris!
Server extremely inattentive. Forgot to put in our order. Waited over an hour for food.
Hi, Marcia! I have reached out directly. I apologize in advance for your unpleasant experience. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks, Kris!
Had a nice meal with family. Service was great. Thank you
Happy hour menu is absolutely worth it (the regular priced menu appears it would be too and I’d come back for that, I saw a lot of delicious dishes walked past our table, but this was our first time and just FYI for those on a budget) our waiter Mark was extremely nice, courteous, and totally on the ball, he totally made our experience. Would come here again and can’t wait to!
Dear Guest, thank you for your positive feedback from your recent visit to Paul Martin's Austin Grill. We are delighted that you had a great experience and we look forward to serving you again! Kris Day | Operating Partner - Paul Martin's Austin Grill
Food was good but way over priced. Service was pretty average and doesn’t match the price point at all .
Dear Guest, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us feedback on how we're doing! We appreciate everyone who takes the time to review their dining experience with us! Take care. -Kris
We went for my husband's birthday. It was a busy Saturday night, but the service was good. No wait for our reservation either.
The service was slow and the food pricey in comparison to its competition. The best value is at happy hour.
The food and drinks were good as always but we felt like we were rushed throughout the whole meal and happy hour menus were not offered to us unless we asked about it. Disappointing about the experience.
Hi. Thank you for reaching out. I apologize you felt rushed throughout your meal. The goal is to be taken care of in a timely manner, without feeling rushed, so I am sorry about that. Depending on seating situations at the restaurant, during any given time, we do not automatically give out happy hour menus. I apologize if something else was conveyed. We look forward to seeing you again, please reach out so I can introduce myself. Thanks, Kris!
Mark was an awesome waiter. Food is always great! Had an enjoyable time with my bestie!
Dear Guest, thank you for your positive feedback from your recent visit to Paul Martin's Austin Grill. We are delighted that you had a great experience and we look forward to serving you again! I'll be sure to let Mark know of your kind words. Kris Day | Operating Partner - Paul Martin's Austin Grill
The food is fantastic. My only complaint is the calamari was greasy & overdone! Caveat Emptor. I was busy hosting a birthday so I didn’t want to complain at the time but I’ve kept my receipt & I’ll be back to talk to the manager.
Good afternoon! Thank you for your feedback and I apologize the calamari was not what you were accustomed to, nor what we stand for. I'd love to make it right for you on your next visit. Please reach out so I can introduce myself. Have a great day. -Kris
Unfortunately the food and drinks have gone downhill over the last couple years.
Great food and drinks!
Dear Julie, thank you for your positive feedback from your recent visit to Paul Martin's Austin Grill. We are delighted that you had a great experience and we look forward to serving you again! Kris Day | Operating Partner -Paul Martin's Austin Grill
Easily one of the best experience I have had at a restaurant in a long time. The food was amazing and the wait staff was very helpful and attentive. Would easily recommend to anyone.

Overall our experience was great until the bill came and our waiter was extremely odd and rude. We requested to have the Bill split in 2 and he took both credit cards. He then proceeded to hold up our female friend’s credit card and say something like “check out this card, this is a good card”. This was extremely rude and obnoxious and utterly unprofessional. Who holds up a card and shows it to other patrons if it’s heavier or seems more valuable? It’s incredibly obnoxious. We enjoyed the food, however this service indicates your team requires better training for your servers.
Hi, Molly! I hope you are doing well. Thank you for reaching out and letting us know about your experience. I apologize for the behavior you experienced. This sounds like an isolated issue and a coaching moment that we have taken full advantage of, so it does not happen again. We hope so see you return and please reach out when you do so, I'd love to introduce myself. Thanks, Kris.
It was such a fun night and festive ambiance with it being graduation weekend! The service was immaculate,

The Manager and our Server ( I’m sorry I forget their names!) made us feel very welcome. We were a party of 10. Very accommodating. I enjoyed the deviled eggs and Harvest salad!
Great food, always wanted to go there and it didn’t fall short on expectations.
Hi, Yuri! Thank you for reaching out and shedding some light into your experience. I do apologize if you were caught off guard by our closing time and I can understand that. Although we do close daily at 10:00 pm right now, one should not shy away from making a reservation within our business hours. We will do everything necessary to ensure our guest have a great time, regardless of what time the reservation is for. Thanks again and we hope to see you soon! -Kris
The food was great, a little pricey for the amount but that’s expected in this type of restaurant. Our waiter was great and we enjoyed the meal and will definitely be back!
Hi, Terri! So cool to see you had a great time at Paul Martin's. We are grateful for your support and appreciate the kind words. Thank you and take! -Kris
It was really good. Have been there before when it was over the top good, and even though this time wasn’t quite AS good, it was still well worth it. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to anyone!
Good service given how busy they are and how difficult it is to staff/hire right now
Hi! Thank you so much for the support. Times are definitely different but we are getting back and thanks to our valued guests like yourself. We greatly appreciate you and look forward to seeing you soon. Thanks, Kris!
We really like this restaurant! The food was great and they even gave us extra mashed potatoes when one order was incorrect for the 'side'. They have good choices for different tastes and prices.
Hi, Sharon! Thank you for your kind review. I apologize that we made a mistake and thank you for allowing us to make it right. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks, Kris!
My visit was an early lunch just as the pandemic restrictions were easing so the restaurant was uncrowded and relaxed.
Outstanding as usual! And our bartender, Brie, is awesome!
This trip to Paul Martin's was one of our Brunches out since the lock down last March. We sat on the patio and there were very few other costumers on this particular morning. (The tables are not really separated for social distancing in or out, so if that concerns you, you may need to request a certain area where they can accommodate that desire.) It started pouring while we were there and the waiters promptly lowered the shades and moved us to a different table so we would not get splashed with new set ups and coffees, even though we were almost at the end of our meal. The food was excellent, although the pre-fix brunch menu seemed a bit pricey. Overall I highly recommend Paul Martins and their happy hour, if you up for that, has a fantastic menu! The food is farm to table with all Texas suppliers, so no fake bar food here.
This place is always amazing, the food is delicious, nice wine and the best butter cake ever!!!
Hey, Gina! Sounds like you had a great time and thank you for the feedback. The butter cake sure is a hit, glad you were able to try it. Thanks again for the kind words and we look forward to seeing you again, soon! Thank you, Kris!
Mediocre experience. The waiter did a poor job of pacing the meal and all the food (appetizers, salad and entrees) suddenly came out all at once. The food was mediocre at best. I did not eat my salmon because it was slathered in Dijon mustard - an ingredient that was not listed on the menu. Probably will not return.
I tried this place on Mother’s Day and i was hooked! I came back with my lover and we had a wonderful time!!! Please try this place.
Hello! Thank you for the positive feedback, we appreciate it! Glad you were able to have an enjoyable time and we look forward to seeing you soon. Thanks, Kris!
Our first visit there and the food was fantastic. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and scenery. Only wish our waitress would have catered to us more often. During our visit which last over an hour we saw her twice after our orders were taken. Overall great experience and future visits are planned.
Hello! Glad to hear that you had a nice experience. Apologies the server was not around as much, we will take that into consideration and thanks for the feedback. We appreciate the support and look forward to seeing you again, soon! Thanks, Kris.
Went fir Mother’s Day dinner. They were put fo salad which was weird. Service was bad, food was fair. Wanted to like it but maybe caught them on bad night.
