My wife and I have included Paul Martin's on our hometown restaurant rotation since it first opened, but have visited less and less over time. The menu is limited and the food has deteriorated in quality. Our last visit, I ordered the baby back ribs,...More

Haven't been to Paul Martin's since I stopped working in El Segundo. It's a shame it's not closer to where I live, as the food was prepared as expected. The salads, the tacos and the turkey sandwich were all prepared with the customer in mind....More

Happy hour prices on the high side. Food qualify on the low side. Probably won't go back. Bartenders basically dull.

No complaints about this place, but nothing too special. I take that back - the lighting was incredibly dark. Difficult to even see the menu. The food was yummy though.

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.
