About Paul Martin's American Grill - Scottsdale
Scottsdale, AZ 85253
Seasonal & Delicious.
With Paul Martin's American Grill, Brian Bennett and restaurateur Paul Fleming have realized a long-nurtured dream to create the restaurant "we've always wished was in our neighborhood."
At the heart of all great food is fresh, local, peak of the season ingredients. Paul Martin's aims to serve diners the best ingredients with meat raised in a humane and wholesome way, locally sourced produce, the best of both wild and farmed fish, artisan cheeses and cured meats from small local purveyors. The deep California-centric wine list twists and turns, by glass or bottle, through the Golden State's vineyards, with an occasional stop for an Oregon Pinot Gris or a Washington dry Riesling. Behind Paul Martin's elegantly rustic bar is an interesting array of craft beer and spirited cocktails with fresh garnishes. Good times and thoughtful food are a way of life at Paul Martin's American Grill.

Paul Martin's American Grill - Scottsdale Ratings and Reviews

We were looking forward to the steak and frites but sadly it has been removed from the menu. Both the cedar plank salmon and the short ribs were delicious. The rib eye was OK, rather on the thin side. The service was rushed. We were still eating our salads when the main courses were served. But we will return. It remains one of our favourites. Next time we will remember to ask the server to better pace the meal.

Second time visiting Paul Martin's. The second time was just as good as the first. The service was terrific and the food worth the price. We went for Happy Hour and the selection and value was great. Next time in the area will definitely stop at Paul Martin's.

Our second visit here was just as nice as the first! Great service and food - with some tasty dishes you don't find in many other spots. The atmosphere is open, yet cozy, and even when they were full, you could still have a normal volume conversation with your companion(s). They now have a well-earned spot on our favorites list !

This is a fun restaurant for an excellent meal. Our reservation was honored, although the restaurant was not full. We sat inside in a fairly open area. I would definitely agree with others that the noise level was very high. Amy was our waitress and she was spectacular with knowledge, recommendations and service. We were in and out in about 75 minutes, but never rushed. We had the artichoke appetizer-yummy, cedar plank salmon-excellent and the ribeye- perfectly cooked and checked by server before he would leave the table.
Would definitely return, but not for a romantic evening.

I'm so glad that I was able to take advantage of the "All Day Tuesday Fried Chicken" 3 Course Special. It was so delicious, and I truly lucked out because it won't be back again until summertime after today. A new menu rolls out on January 4th.
The Wild Mushroom Soup was delectable, as well as the Salt & Pepper Shrimp Appetizer, which is wild caught and not farm raised. Thank you to my server Paolo, who was very timely and wonderful, which made for a pleasant and enjoyable dining experience.
Management is fantastic here, (Clyde and Tim). Both were checking in on all of the guests to make sure that everything was okay. More restaurant establishments could learn a thing or two from them. Best customer service ever!

I never write reviews but this place compelled me to write a positive review. From the lovely ambience , amazing waiter, great cocktails (order the Mosco Mule), menu variety, fresh ingredients, and everything in between I had such a lovely experience.

We had a coupon and decided to try out the restaurant for the first time. The recommended shrimp appetizer was just average and my short rib was the smallest portion I have ever been served anywhere but it was delicious. My husband throughly enjoyed the spareribs which was an ample size. We really liked the restaurant and will return for a special occasion.

Have been enjoying Paul Martins on several occasions this past year. It's never disappointing. Lunch menu is a little spare in regard to choices however dinner is always satisfying. Local ingredients and in-house ice-cream are favorites. Staff are great with management making an effort to mingle and wait personnel efficient and attentive without being intrusive. We'll keep returning, always a treat, thank you!

Food was fairly good for this type of restaurant. Service was terribly slow. Wait staff was very pleasant but it took over 20 minutes to get dessert and then we had to find the waitress just to get the check. Overall good pub style food and maybe they were just overwhelmed with the holiday weekend. The restaurant itself was a fun contemporary design and everyone was very nice....just very slow.

Food was just OK. Filet had fat strands which it should not. This makes me think they aren't using the best choice cuts. Also the mashed potatoes were too simple and plain.
Drinks were OK but if they want to be know as a place to get specialty drinks they should expand the list extensively.
Service was very good.

What an awesome and terrific place this is! The assortment of menu choices is just right and not to overwhelming. I just love Paul Martin's American Grill, and my guests always love it too! The "Braised Beef Short Rib" Entree, was so tender and flavorful. No knife was needed. The staff here is truly the best. Try this restaurant out if you haven't been. You'll surely thank me later, and you will also be greeted by a friendly hostess always!

Wine Dinner for 2-oh my! My hubby and my cousins dined here on Monday and enjoyed a FABULOUS dinner experience! We enjoyed the Wine Dinner Special-my hubby had the Hangar Steak and I had the Skirt Steak. Both steaks were melt in your mouth tender with exquisite flavor-accompanied with mashed potatoes and paired with a dinner salad. We sipped a tasty Sangiovese and couldn't get over the value! The room was energetic-the meal, well paced. We also enjoyed a Happy hour cocktail prior to dinner. We were over the moon happy with every detail!

Lunch for my mother's 83rd birthday. Lunch was good but the dessert was horrible. Banana cream pie with black bananas and "warm" apple crisp that was not warm and was nearly all crumbs and no fruit. Sent a comment to the restaurants website and got no response. Will dine elsewhere in March for our anniversary. Really disappointing

We decided to try this place based on previous recommendations. The restaraunt provides great parking and is well appointed yet comfortably casual. I ordered the Braised Short Ribs, which I thought were amazing! My wife decided to try the BBQ Pork Ribs. Unfortunately, my wife found the St. Louis Style ribs a little to fatty for her liking and mentioned it to our server. Immediately he offered her anything else on the menu as a substitute, no questions asked. After ordering a replacement main course, management stopped by on two separate occasions to make sure everything was OK, even asking if she would like an additional complimentary appetizers while she waited and I enjoyed my meal while it was warm.
The accommodation offered by staff and management was exceptional and I will definitely come back again. Excellent experience.
