    While there were only 2 of us at the table, we received only 2 small pieces of bread. I would have thought there would have been more than that. I ordered soup of the day and received something totally different than what the waiter described to me. I ordered a fresh fish selection Mahi......was dry and overcooked.

    Martinis was a great find from a best friend that lives all the way in KY. She bought me a gift certificate for my bday before I moved out this way. A year later Martinis is s my favorite place in CO- the small, quaintness of Longmont reminds me of home, the Martinis are to die for, and the food is something you'd find at the finest of restaurants in Denver. Love love love it! I had the balls to the walls and count chocula Martinis- just fabulous!

    Our recently party of six enjoyed Martini's Bistro a lot. Sparkling. Our waiter Jude was great. We had vegetarians and carnivores and each was satisfied and we sampled the gamut of Martini's specialty drinks and a happy time was had by all. We had not been to Martini's Bistro in some time and are now reminded that this should be on our short list of favorites!

    Friday date night doesn't get any better. It started on the patio - cool evening but the heaters made it lovely. Anthony started us out with an amazing appetizer special (crostini with prosciutto, tomato, cheese and a quails egg on top)...devine! I tried the pumpkin martini (interesting but good) while my husband had a standard one. Dinner for me was salmon over pasta with spinach, capers and tomatoes while hubby had a steak. Anthony was attentive without being irritating and we relaxed and took our time. Martini's is one of our favorites. Great atmosphere, amazing service and incredible food - we keep coming back...all the way from Denver.

    We didn't know what to expect when my wife and I looked on Google maps for a "non chain" restaurant in Longmont to try Friday night. Let me say we were pleasantly surprised when we pulled to the curb in front of Martini's Bistro. The ambiance of the exterior gave us a warm and fuzzy feeling that we may have chosen wisely and we were not disappointed in the least by the end of the evening. Our wait staff was attentive without hovering and professional without being stodgy. Our meals were excellent and we were only sorry later on that night when we were suffering from having eaten a little too much. I'll be going back very soon and my wife and I will try the patio next time. Thank You

    We had a party of six people and everyone stated that their food was very good!! We were very pleased. The only drawback of this evening was the table we were seated at was next to the patio door which wait staff were going in and out of and in October after the sun goes down, that gets a bit drafty!

I ordered the strip steak with reduction and goat cheese and was pleasantly surprised at the portion size! Our table enjoyed everything we ordered....including our decadent desserts.

    Our food was great! We were there for lunch. I had the vegetarian pasta salad. Ingredients were numerous, tasty, fresh! It didn't need any meat, but there was that option. Another item ordered in our group was "Bubbles and Berries," described by the one who ate it as "very nice.!" No one greeted us upon our arrival, but our waiter was nice & humorous at times. Though told it was handicapped accessible (one in or party needed that), upon arrival we found the first step onto the ramp high and difficult for her. Parking was also a problem for such needs. They had to park somewhat at a distance and walk. Since it was raining when we left, it caused slightly more difficulty. Order sparkling water. Their tap water did not taste good.

    From the minute we arrived to when we finally got up from the table to leave, Martini's Bistro raised the bar in every way possible. The house is gorgeous and the outside patio/garden is beautiful! The little lamps and subtle lighting make for a very romantic atmosphere. The Hostess was a gem, the Waiter was very kind and well humored, the additional staff made sure our water glasses were never empty, and the food was TO DIE FOR. We tried multiple appetizers paired with exotic but tasty martini's. Our main courses were well portioned for the price and absolutely delicious. Dessert was certainly the cherry on the top. Anything you order will be phenomenal and the ambiance makes for the most amazing date (hint, hint gentlemen).

    Both my wife and I were pretty excited to try this place since it had such high reviews and this was a special RARE date night for us. Walking in it was not very warm and welcoming and we were not greeted promptly. it took three people to find our reservation in the computer. Sitting at our table taking in the resturant, looking around I looked up and in the light fixtures where a TON of dead bugs in every single fixture. Our waitress seemed to have wrote us off for our age and we weren't even ordering off of the Happy Hour menu! Spent 100+ dollars for bland food which the Pasta had a pre cooked quality to it! The Appetizer was bland and was missing something. Charged for Olives at a Martini BAR!??? Dissapointment!

    We have been going to Martini's for years, and then it got a little strange - probably due to ownership/management. We stopped going for a year or so, and then heard that management had changed, so we went back, and were very happy with the dinner. Sat out on the patio. Very nice

    We thought our GPS led us astray when it took us to this residential area. We were greeted at the door and seated indoors for smoker avoidance. The wait staff was attentive and wore smiles. The Martini was excellent. I would have rated this establishment higher if there was better food presentation and coordinated service.

    Martini's Bistro has been a favorite restaurant of my wife and I for nice dinners out and special events for years. I recently took a half-dozen co-workers over for lunch and am happy to say the food was great, the service was excellent, and lovely little Victorian home is as beautiful as ever. Adding the awning to the patio was an inspired touch and made for a wonderful outdoor lunch on a toasty day. The food, always a major highlight, was fantastic as always. Nobody in Longmont focuses on truly experiencing your dish from first glimpse to last bite like Martini's Bistro. You can tell the dishes are born of a passion for fun, delicious, and artfully-prepared meals and I'm glad to say Frankie's legacy continues strong.

    I took three people to Martini's for a special occasion; I was the only one who had been there previously. We were seated immediately, on the patio, which was my request at the time of reservation. Service was very slow from the start. Our waitperson was friendly and let us know that the kitchen had been "slammed" with multiple orders at once. This has been a theme the last three times I've eaten there. The food and drinks, when they arrived, were well prepared and presented and quite good, and that's why I keep going back.

    Desserts were disappointing. I like chocolate mousse but it was not whipped. The topping had no taste. Creme Brule the topping was great but the rest had no taste. The Mama Mia and Twist were excellent. The salad was delicious. The wait people were friendly but, kept trying to take away our plates while we were still eating. Maybe she was new? No bread and butter plates. They wanted to bring out our desserts before we had finished eating our dinner.

    Service and ambiance were great. I love the outdoor seating and the drinks were very tasty. The food was not up to par at all. Our appetizer (calamari) was way over fried and had little to no flavor. The sauce made it edible but I felt like I just order this from a sports bar. Our main dishes were also disappointing. Mine (giada) was too greasy. The seafood was well done but was drowing in sauce. My girlfriends (arcadian) came with a huge block of polenta. The scallops were good but the polenta was a bit ridiculous. It was like a block of tofu. Luckily our shared dessert was excellent and we finally smiled because of the food. Overall, not too impressed. They really need to work on the level of their food (especially flavor).

    We enjoyed are meal, food was very good as was the service. The drawback was the noise level. As soon as we sat down we realized our expectation of a nice quiet dinner was not going to be. The tables are very close together and they have what appears to be a tin roof. We had a hard time conversing although we could hear our adjoining tables just fine.

The Alascan Caper and the Matador were exquisite. I didn't realize we had this in Longmont.

    During this visit, I was having dinner with my elderly Mom. The reason that I mention this, is because not all resaurants are comfortable for older people due to noise levels, service, and food selection. Martini's was great! The food was great, they accomodated my mothers requests for sauces on the side, and removing shrimp from a dish, due to a food allergy. The noise level was calm, so we could hold a conversation without having to yell or be interrupted. We have visited this resaurant in the past, with a large group and enjoyed our visit then, as well. Love this restaurant!
