Local. Seasonal. Delicious.<br /><br />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."<br /><br />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.

"We have always enjoyed this restaurant. The quality and freshness of food has been excellent. We have experience slow service a couple of times, but that never kept us away. Service is great, suggestions are always given when asked. I have been here for both lunch and dinner and think this restaurant is great. Seasonal veggies, well executed meats, and delicious desserts. What more could one ask for?"

"This is a warm and friendly neighborhood restaurant with consistently good food. The servers are always helpful. The kitchen can be a little slow at times but we find the food is worth the wait."

Inspired by the slow food movement of Italy, Osteria Coppa specializes in artisanal pasta and pizza while embracing a fresh, seasonal farm-to-table style. Handcrafted pasta and pizza, farm fresh toppings, artisan cheeses, savory house-made sauces, and house cured salumi reflect Executive Chef Chanan Kamen’s profound passion for making his cuisine from scratch using traditional, old world techniques. <br /><br />Relax in a casual, urban setting in the heart of downtown San Mateo. Grab a seat at the bar, dine tableside indoors, join friends at the community table, or enjoy the sunshine outdoors (with heaters and shade umbrellas) on the festive “Coppa Cabana” patio!

"My husband and I really like this restaurant. Always a good meal. We like the seasonal menu. Only downside on this trip; service from the kitchen was a little slow."

"It's a bit of a drive, but well worth it. Even with our reservation, we had to wait about a half an hour, very unusual. The spinach salad was perfect; three of us had the mahi fish special; when we weren't sure of the accompanying sauce, the server brought our a sample. That was very nice and a smart move; we loved it. My husband ordered the venison and it was delicious. Desserts were perfect, too."
