We have been there before. This time our server was training another new server, so normally I'm sure he is great but this time things kind of went wrong. He asked bread for the table and it was never brought. Asked for it and it was one end piece on a plate for the two of us. Our main dish came to us before the appetizer so that went back. Our appetizer came which was delicious (deviled eggs) We were not through and out again comes our main dish. It was luke warm to say the least. The mashed potatoes were cold and brought us out fresh warmer ones. So normally this place rocks, just not this time.

Went there for husband's birthday. Was just okay....for the price and value, not necessarily worth it but to try, it wasn't terribly bad. Kids meal value was great. Steak did not come out medium but well done. But we just ate it. Salmon was good, but sauce was mediocre. Not sure we will be returning.

What a difference a day makes. We tried to make a reservation on Saturday and were told that the earliest available was 7:45 p.m. I subsequently made a reservation for the next night (Sunday) and the place was ¾ empty. The food and service were great, as always. Every dish was as good, or better than expected, but do yourself a favor and try the Fried Chicken, which was absolutely incredible.

Upon arriving the hostess was very nice, welcomed us and took us to our table immediately. The server came over and began to take our order check in on us. I ordered an 8 oz filet medium well and it came out basically raw inside with the outside charred and burnt beyond recognition. The food for everyone else was mediocre, and not up to par. The manager came over and said I understand there was an issue with your food, I have removed it and dropped off the bill…..No can I make it better, can we get something else for you? Didn’t even give us the opportunity to order dessert, or coffee not that we would have but it was rude and abrupt to say the least. Almost as if they were more concerned with clearing the restaurant out than taking care of guests. Super disappointed with this location food and service.

Sir/Madam, I am so sorry for your experience. As an enjoy-er of fine restaurants and good food, and as a restaurant manager, I am disappointed as well. I would like to take this opportunity to do what should have been done last night, and offer to make it up to you. I have sent you a private message as well to hopefully start some dialogue on how we can do that. Thank you, Dino R.

Three of us went during Dine LA week, in the COVID-19 pandemic.

I had been wanting to try this restaurant out for a while and wasn't usually in the area to do so. Because we had to drive the 101 that day, we didn't prefer to do drive-thru/fast food, and I happened to get an email about Dine LA, I finally got my 'wish.'

We chose a table outside and were seated out front, close to the fountain, and it had a view of the streets. The dining area was cute and we found more tables on the side as well, when we passed to the restaurant, and also many more inside (maybe we'll opt for that post-pandemic). While we were initially greeted by our server with high energy, unfortunately, she presented as irritated when we requested the Dine LA menu and the rest of her 'service' felt negative. That said, we ordered three alcoholic beverages, one item off the DineLA menu, one off the main menu, one off the kid's, and a dessert.

Staff - Please remind your servers that DineLA increases the likelihood of patrons and have the hosts give the menus vs the servers', b/c we were brought in by the deals themselves but doesn't mean that is all we'd order and the judgment makes me hesitate to return.

The service was fantastic! She was friendly, checked in on us. You could see her smiling through the mask. She made us feel very welcome!! The food would have gotten five stars if the mushroom soup was on the menu. Absolutely the best mushroom soup in the area!!

We'll keep checking in to see when it's 'in season' again. It should always be on the menu!!!! HINT HINT

Went for family outing with wifey and girls, 7, girls love French fries, really good fries here!!!! Girls had Mac n cheese, was delicious. Had a burger, added bacon and eggs, YES!!! Wife had salmon, she loved it. Great place for the family for lunch and a bit of shopping. Great service, food always good. We sat outside, was just a bit noisy due to the constant traffic in the area. Favorite place to eat when we visit the Promenade.

We made reservations for 6 of us to celebrate my future DIL's wedding dressing shopping and the staff at Paul Martin's couldn't be more accommodating! We had the best time enjoying our delicious lunch. They even gave us a round of mimosas on the house! Thank you for such a great experience, from the hostess to the manager to our server.

Sangeeta made the whole experience worthwhile. She was so personal, knew her menu and knew her bar and wines.
She suggested the 2014 Bernardus Pinot and it was amazing.
Next time we come in we will ask for her as our server. It is so refreshing to have someone to suggest items and the flavor lives up to the recommendation.
She is a true treasure.

Seemed most of the staff were new and not well trained. Had to ask for everything 2-3 times; water, silverware, bread, etc. Fish undercooked, meat overcooked. Hope they do better in the future. Will try again once more.

During these COVID times, IF we go out for a meal, we prefer patio dining. Paul Martin's restaurant offers a wrap-around patio. I marked 'Moderate' noise level because Westlake Blvd is nearby. Most times that we've been there, the patio has been fine. If you go in the evening, there are heaters. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Our last server, Braden, is an asset and a great representative of Paul Martin's. He is personable and professional. Braden spoke of the daily specials while we enjoyed the complimentary bread that he brought to us. I ordered the BBQ chopped chicken salad special which was delicious and I hope they keep that on the menu. Honestly....it is a little pricey. My husband ordered the cheddar cheese burger which he thoroughly enjoyed. He usually orders the steelhead salmon sandwich. We recommend Paul Martin's Restaurant.
