We have dined here for many years and always enjoyed our meals. This time the meal was just mediocre. The halibut was bland and the sauce was also bland. My wife originally ordered the halibut tacos for $21 as shown on the menu but was told that there was a surprise up change of $4. I objected that the dish would not be as clearly shown on the menu. She opted to take the halibut entree on the menu. The house salad was also mediocre. We spent over $90 for our meal and expected more for the price. The service was satisfactory and the server was friendly but too busy to be more attentive.

The steak and the bacon wrapped shrimps were uncharacteristically salty during this visit so the dinner was a disaster even though the server was excellent. Not sure if I want to go back again ever.

Wife loved her brick chicken. Calamari was salty. I asked for my burger medium but got well done. Fries were salty too. Banana cream pie was bland.

Lovely dinner The food was outstanding. However, I ordered the blackened ribeye and it was not quite cooked to how I ordered it. It was positively raw inside. I sent it back and they gave me a new steak which was cooked the exact same way. I ended up taking the raw-ish ribeye home and cooked it for dinner the next night. Very yummy!

Starting with the positive, our server was excellent. However, the Margarita was mostly ice. Food was room temperature at best and burnt in the outside - we expected better for a $50 steak. Ambiance was poor, we had to get re-seated, as the table was unstable and chairs too low, to the very back booth. We used to go here regularly but it seems the quality overall has dropped. Disappointed!

I dined with an old friend and we had Graciela S as our server. Right from the start she was sharp and unfriendly. When we asked about a special she was rude, she was pushy and short with us the entire meal. After the meal, she just walked by and put our bill on the table, not even offering dessert or saying a word! This was my friends first experience at Paul Martins and I doubt, she'll return. I've dined at your restaurant several times and I know this isn't a usual experience, so I'll try again, hoping not to be seated in her section.

Our pre-movie dinner was terrific! Our delicious food arrived in plenty of time for our movie at the nearby theater. The server, Santiago, took care of every request with a smile and the greeter, Dino, found us a quiet booth so we could all catch up after not seeing one another for awhile. We had a great experience and will come again soon.

I tried the fried Chicken, very large portions, wing, leg thigh, rib meat, breast, enough for two people, however it was very greasy and being cooked almost to a burned crust. Corn smothered in something, maybe cheese, and blackened. Bottom line I would not order it again. Food there is normally great, I like the mushroom soup, unfortunately not on the menu this time.

Despite having a veteran server (she said two years) she scraped leftovers from one plate to another at the table in front of us and overcharged us by $26. A manager resolved the overcharge but it required a visit to the hostess station.

Had the summer rib, shrimp & pineapple, chicken special, tastes great, lots to eat. Dinned inside - the big leather chairs at the tables are very low, soft and uncomfortable to sit in for both of us! My wife stuffed her purse behind her back to give some kind of support. Need to replace all those big chairs! I noticed another patron had brought in her own cushion to add to her chair to sit on to give added height. Please update the decor to provide dining comfort for the guests.

Paul Martin’s has consistently been a great venue for personal or professional conversation. Our server, Michael, was awesome maintaining the service I’ve come to expect. My only recommendation would be to do something about the setting sun and how the tables are positioned on the inside bar area.

Would recommend just for their great specials like the Sunday roast or the full course for two. The food and ambience weren’t on par with the price. Food and ambience are comparable to Yard House or BJ’s, but price is more expensive. I do like how ingredients are organic and recipes made from scratch, and service was beyond excellent!

Food was excellent, service was so-so. Unfortunately we had a booth in a different section of restaurant than where our normal server works. Service was okay but not at the level we normally experience.

Excellent service by a friendly staff. Went with co-workers and they let us sit at our table for 2-1/2 hours. It was a 2:30 reservation and we left when the evening crowd started arriving, but they didn't bug us to leave. They brought us a free dessert because it was a going away luncheon. Had a great time.

Friendly service, nice ambiance. My order was an Ahi tuna salad that I thought was a little above average. My fiend had a burger and said it was excellent. The drinks were well-made and the bar crowd was fun - nice patrons and the staff was very helpful.
