Description: At the heart of all great food is fresh, local, peak of the season ingredients. Paul Martin’s aims to take diners back to the farm with meat raised in a humane and wholesome way, locally sourced organic produce, the best of both wild and farmed fish, artisan cheeses and cured meats from small local purveyors.Surveys show that 78 percent of American consumers value regional and local food for home cooking. Why? For health, taste and to preserve the rural landscape. Embracing this concept, Paul Martin's believes it's their responsibility to carry these values into the restaurant kitchen.

My wife likes the salmon with quinoa, while I'm a big fan of the fish tacos (also salmon). Food is not extraordinary but very good. Can get noisy with an afterwork bar crowd, especially on Friday night.

Went here solo on a Saturday night, using Open Table to make a 6pm reservation. The place was only 1/2 full when I arrived, so I was seated promptly. My server (whose name I forget) was friendly and efficient, and let me know that because it was Father's Day weekend, the Sunday night Prime Rib Special was also available. Although... More

Went to Paul Martin's to try out their Monday Night special "Wine Dinner" - 2 salads, 2 entrees and a bottle of wine for about $50.00. What a great deal. I was surprised that we could choose any entree from their menu and also had a choice of many wines with dinner. We are very fussy about wine so were... More

Haven eaten here several times. Nice wine selection and good food. Alwyas seated promptly with reservations. If you're going for happy hour, the bar area is very busy. The restaurant will validate parking.

We were looking for a nice place to eat last September, and found this restaurant on TripAdvisor. Came and loved it ! So, we were in the area again, and needed to take two very dear friends out for their 50th anniversary. We were staying in Manhattan Beach, and they live in Costa Mesa. They are very selective about good... More

Paul Martin's has a relaxed atmosphere and is very focused on customer service. The brunch is reasonably priced at 22 dollars, and, includes a brunch beverage, beautiful fruit, yummy drop biscuits, and an entree. The vanilla infused french toast is so good. A really nice relaxed Sunday brunch!

Service is great. The wait staff is only too happy to make recommendations based on your preferences. You must try the Salt and Pepper Prawns.
