I came in with my girlfriend for dinner and was treated to a great meal and cocktail selection. My server Zabi was so professional and took care of our table if we needed anything. Being someone who frequents going to the restaurant, I would say he was the best server I've ever had. Highly recommend you ask for him when you stop by!
My wife & I decided to have dinner for our marriage anniversary at Paul Martins. We were immediately greeted by our server Zabi who was extremely friendly & service oriented, since it was our first time at this location, Zabi was very helpful in helping us pick out our menu selection. I had the veggie burger & my wife had the Cedar plank steelhead salmon, the veggie burger was excellent, overall we would definitely come back again food and guest service from our server was on par, also we would love to try out different items on the menu in the future.
It is incredibly frustrating when a restaurant has happy hour specials that are only available in the bar and then puts "reserved" signs on EVERY table that lines the bar.  My party of 4 arrived at 5:30 for happy hour and the few seats at the bar and the long communal table were taken. We ordered a drink and stood for a while and then asked if we could sit at one of the EMPTY EMPTY EMPTY tables. He said we would have to ask at the front, so 2 of us walked over and the hostess said that they are held for reservations. I asked if we could make a reservation then - and she said no we should have called in advance. So I asked the obvious question, are there people with reservations scheduled to sit at these tables? She said "probably."  We were waiting for another friend or we would have left, but in the 2 hours we were there - all 3 of those tables stayed empty.  At one point we sat at one of the outdoor bar tables and another waiter RAN over and asked if we were with the party that had reserved the area (there were no reserved signs here) and when we said no we didn't know this was a reserved area he somewhat nicely told us we would have to move. A spot at the long table did open up and we sat there for an hour, but because we had ordered our food from the bar tender, the other staff that was walking by refused to clear the previous customer's plates - so it was a completely horrible experience.
