brought 13 ladies from my lunch group here for the second time last week. Upon arrival, they showed us to a long table in the back of the restaurant. It was so dark that I could not see anything, and had to borrow a flashlight to read the menu. When you have a large group, you want to talk. Having... More

In town again, and invited some friends to meet us at Paul Martin's for lunch yesterday (5/5). We can always count on getting a good meal, and good service here. That is the precise reason why we keep returning. And that's what happened. Our food was delicious. A friend and I had the "Vegetable Pasta" ( it was perfect), the... More

Fairly expensive lunch place for decent food. The service was less than impressive -- incredibly slow with a few order mix-ups that seemed odd given that the place was not overly crowded.

Been there alone on a Monday evening. Very quiet place, very clean, very nice and class. Free parking in the back (ask for a coupon before you leave the restaurant or provide your receipt) and even a valet (6$). Took a drink (Peligroso Blanco Margarita 10$), meat (Marinated steak) and a banana pie. Drink was good, meat was VERY good,... More

Looking for a restaurant near our hotel, we decided on Paul Martins. We really hit the jackpot! We were there on a Monday night which happened to be their "$49 Dinner for Two" night, which included 2 salads, 2 entrees and a bottle of wine. We are not talking bargain basement wines - there are 25 to chose from -... More

love to go back. Valet parking was fast and reasonable too. Entry to the front can be challenging as restaurant is on the right side of Rosecrans heading to the ocean

Great service and food. Reasonably priced although where they make it up is on alcohol. What I mean by this is given the quality of the food, it is well priced. The wine selection is good but relative to other restaurants, its a bit higher. Overall however, its a good balance. Great place for groups with varying tastes. There will... More

We had just flown in to LA and needed something good to eat for lunch. Found this place and I'm glad we did. Seated us right away, 4 adults 2 kids. Fish tacos and pastrami burger were excellent. Salmon burger was great also. Fries were really good with dill and lemon seasoning. Parking was a little difficult. Valet for 6$... More
