Description: The menu at Paul Martin’s consists of dishes aimed at taking diners back to the American farm with meat raised in a humane and wholesome way, locally sourced organic produce, fish from conscientious fishmongers, artisan cheeses and cured meats from small local purveyors and custom-made bread from expert bakers. The California-centric wine list twists and turns, by glass or bottle, through the Golden State’s fruitful vineyards, with an occasional stop for an Oregon Pinot Gris or a Washington dry Riesling. And behind Paul Martin’s elegantly rustic bar is an interesting array of local craft beer and spirited cocktails with fresh garnishes. Good times and thoughtful food are a way of life at Paul Martin’s local, American Bistro.

“What you expect...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I have been to PMAB several times in the last few years for events and dinners. I have always had a great experience. The food is fresh and tasty and the atmosphere is comfortable with a dash of upscale.

I my business I have recommended PMAB to dozens of people and always ask for their feedback on it. I have come to the conclusion there is some weird link between the restaraunt and people's inner thoughts or something. If you go there expecting good food and a good time, you will get it! If you go there with doubts pessimism, you will be dissapointed. I have had people love it and hate it. I personally love it. So I would suggest trying it out and expect great things!

“Better fries than Bouchon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I recently had some great french fries at Bouchon in Yountville. Great fries, but I found a better version here in Roseville. Paul Martin's American Bistro had the better version. Very good lunch menu and great service. Try it for lunch, make sure you ask for the french fries!

“Always great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Since the day it opened, Paul Martins has quickly become a great place to eat. Just the right amount of formality to make it a great choice for a casual dinner or a business lunch or dinner. Bar scene has become quite popular to mingle during happy hour or after dinner. If you are not the hungry, one of my favorites is the hamburger which is always on the menu day or night. If not in the mood for meat, the portebello mushroom burger is fantastic. The weekly special Fried Chicken is one of the best in town, but I believe only served on Wednesday. The seasonal music on the patio is a great touch.

“Consistently Excellent Service and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

I've been coming to Paul Martin's since it opened and have never once been disappointed, other than not making a reservation and having to wait an hour to be seated. But hey, that was OUR problem, not Paul Martin's. Their problem is they have an EXCELLENTLY trained staff, plenty of help, above average attitudes, and anything they can do to make your dining experient en joyable, consider it done! Oh, and the food is great and I found one of my "now" favorite wine's there... Kelly Flemming Cab. Extraodinary!

I was surprised, ate the a couple time before and it was so so. The food quality appears to have gone up and our server was excellent.
