  • "We received a gift certificate and decided to try the restaurant on a Friday night with friends. This was the only time we have been here so I cannot say how it would be for lunch but we had an excellent dinner! Food and service were great. We found a parking spot on the street. Don't know if they have valet as parking can be tricky in that area. Will definitely be going again!"

  • "Great ambiance, great service, great cocktails but the food quality suffered. I ordered the marinated skirt steak (medium well). My wife ordered their trio with lump crab cake. We shared a calamari appetizer. The calamari pieces were small and uninteresting though the pesto and marinara sauces were quite interesting. My skirt steak was rare, tough, hard to cut and chew. I sent it back, suggesting that more cooking might improve it, but it came back even tougher and impossible to chew. I was not charged for it. My wife's crab cake was boring and she complained of it not having "any flavor". Our desert, a cheese cake, was however scrumptious. Overall I was disappointed with the meal especially given the high ratings I read."

It's the excellent menu, terriffic service and vibrant ambiance. No wonder it has been a RVC staple for 20 something years. We look forward to celebrating our next occasion or just a nice night out without the kids at GM."

  • "Everyone order something different from fish to steak. All dishes looked great and tasted great. We sat in back room which gave us the ability to talk. Our waitress was wonderful. She was there with anything we needed. Yet she never rushed us to leave. It was a perfect evening"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We came in for a quick meal and this is what we got in the most professional way. The service was courteous and the food came out promptly and spot on. I now remember why I steer clear from the franchise restaurants. This place cares and it shows. I ordered the Schnitzel by the way, and it was thin, tender and crispy and the red cabbage and dumpling pasta that accompanied it was SO tasty. On this day we were in a rush, but the waitress reminded us that they had mini desserts too so we found enough time for a mini brownie. Glad we did..it was a homemade brownie with freshly made whipped cream and Haagen Dazs!! Yum. It is obvious to see why THIS place has outlived EVERY other restaurant in the area."

  • "Made our reservations online. Food and service were excellent. I did mention in my reservation that we were two couples celebrating our 47th anniversary and was disappointed that no one read the notation or congratulated us. More attention should be paid to the reason for dining at their restrauant. However, that be said we had a very enjoyable meal. Shrimp appetizers yummy. Pretzel coated salmon was a hit. Steak perfect.There was an allergy situation and it was taken care of very professionally. Our friends enjoyed dining there and we would definitely be back."

  • "This was the first time at George Martin's and it was Mother's Day. We were very pleased with all aspects of the dining experience. They responded positivly to our request to have a seating with as much room as they could manage since my elderly parents needed it to navigate. The food was well prepared according to our requests and the service was timely and courteous. It was a bit pricy but we knew that going in. If a special occasion is needful of a fine place this is it."
