We loved our dining experience at Paul Martin’s! Salomon was amazing, he was always attentive, kind, and made us feel welcome. The food was delicious as always! We also enjoyed the ambiance, it was quiet, we could easily carry out a conversation. Thanks for an amazing experience! ❤️

I love that they are dog friendly. We requested for the patio since we had our puppy with us. We ordered for her too and she enjoyed eating it. We had a doting waitress making sure our puppy was happy

We had dinner at the bar. The bar staff was AWESOME! The food was good, but we felt it was a bit overpriced when comparing the overall experience to Perry's Steakhouse.

There were a couple of foul mouthed and loud patrons at the bar, which wasn't ideal for the rest of the guests sitting within earshot.

Overall, we will return again in the future.

I brought a friend who was visiting from out of town for Happy Hour which is from 4-6pm and it was fantastic! We had a great time on the patio. Weather was perfect. Our server Santino was great! He was training a new server Tony who was also really great. They both were very attentive and super nice! Not going to lie we pretty much ordered all the food items on the Happy Hour menu and it was all delicious l! My favorite thing was the salmon sandwich that includes a cocktail for $15! O and the ribs were also soooo good.

The food is always really great. We are starting to bring groups back in because of the service and atmosphere. I realize that Covid 19 has takien a direct aim at the hospitality world, but over our 4 visits last week, we had extra charges: 2 dollars for a side of parmesan, $6 for bacon, avocado and mushrooms (which used to be complimentary outside of happy hour) $2 for cheese on the French Dip, up charge for aioli, extra dressing... not a big deal... just increase your pricea instead of gouging table side. On the upside: the service and atmosphere is by far the beat in The Domain. Today our waitress apologized and we will return. Your manager Chris is very hospitable and your staff is great!

There's no doubt when you go to Paul Martin's you're going to get a great meal. However, I find that when I go there, the food is over seasoned with garlic. I know many people love it, however, I'd prefer to taste all of my food and not just garlic. I'd love it if there were a scale or an option to leave it out of dishes.

It was our 16 anniversary. We were sitting outside next to street so loud. My husbands meal was good but mine was just ok and for the price I would have thought it would taste better. I have been here before and had great experience this time was just ok. 🤷🏼‍♀️

We were seated next to the kitchen which is a very loud area. The burgers were a greasy mess and not really that tasty. My wife had the salmon on a salad and it was 75% cucumbers (which is not even listed as an ingredient on the menu) she was happy with the salmon but the salad was less then her expectations. The only saving grace was the waitress, who was very personable and attentive.
Overall, I’m not looking to come back anytime soon.

I'm a regular at PM Austin. I recently suffered a medical problem that has left me temporarily paralyzed on one side of my face. What I'm able to eat is very limited. I hadn't left home since I left the hospital, and desperately needed some normalcy. We came in for lunch. I was expecting to order a side of mac and cheese. Chef Juan came out and spoke to me. He asked me about my dietary requirements right now, anything that I liked or disliked, and asked if I had any allergies. Based on what I told him, he asked if I trusted him to create something for me. I was agreeable. I'm not sure exactly what he made, but it was magnificent. I had no problems chewing or swallowing it, and it was absolutely delicious. All of the staff that knows me as a regular acknowledged me and showed genuine concern for me and my recovery. Sara waited on us, attended to all of our needs, and held very pleasant conversation. THIS is why I'm a regular here. The entire staff is amazing and I always feel at home. Bravo!

Im ecstatic to see the comeback of our favorite restaurant. our favorite server has returned. The place is responsibly handling covid. The only thing that is missing is your delicious ranch dressing! How can a restaurant in TEXAS not serve ranch. The kidos miss it with their chicken tenders aNd i miss it with the Cobb. Please bring it back!

We got there late, actually two hours late. I called the restaurant to inform them that we would be late. We had the shrimp appetizer and it was well-seasoned and slightly crispy and scrumptious. My date had the fish taco and she wasn't impressed with the seasoning. I had the fried chicken and love it.

We were tired from our drive from Houston, so we skipped desert. I would definitely return to this restaurant. Kudos to the courtesy and charm of the host.
