Diner Reviews
  • "I grew up dining at Charcoal Steak House with my family and have spent many meals as an adult at Del Dente and Martini's. Our server Heather, was knowledgeable, friendly and prompt and already knew about my food sensitivities from the OpenTable notes. When my meal came out with an ingredient I can't eat in it and needed to send it back (yes I took I bite, eek) they not only took care of the problem swiftly, with grace and profound apologies, they took my meal off the bill! Our meals were absolutely delicious, cocktails and wines were great and service was warm and friendly. Martini's is a great choice for almost every occasion. Thank you!"

  • "Planned a 50th Birthday dinner for my dearest friend and it was wonderful, food, service and the atmosphere. We all enjoyed our evening, of course it had a lot to do with the company :), but a wonderful visit for sure!"

  • "My girlfriend and I choose Martini's for our monthly catchup visit. The atmosphere, service, food and martini's allow us to unwind. We like to try different martinis and we are always given suggestions and descriptions as to whether they are sweet or sour or smooth. We have discovered some new ones and look forward to the next time. The food is exceptional. We never leave hungry. We will be back."

  • "While the service and drinks were fantastic the food was subpar. My friend ordered the chicken supreme with garlic and mash and you could have used the potatoes as drywall paste. No matter how much butter she added the potatoes were dry dry dry. I ordered the sesame crusted tuna. The tuna was over cooked and however the flavours were there. I would recommended martinis for cocktails but don't waste your money on the food. This is the second wideman restaurant that I've been to in a month that the food has been a total disappointment."

  • "My wife, daughter and I went here on Friday evening for dinner. Our server Stella was outstanding as usual. No problem substituting pasta for my daughters kid's meal. Our meals were delightful. My wife' s salmon was cooked to perfection. My tuna was excellent as was the asian inspired sides. Desert and special coffees rounded out this pleasurable evening. Thanks Martini's."

  • "We were all disappointed in the menu. We havent been to Martini's since November but I do recall the menu having so many lovely dinners to choose from. I had a hard time deciding which dinner to choose as the menu had so many wonderful choices. This time I had a hard time finding anything that made me want to order it. Our server was fabulous.......but all 4 of were disappointed and wont be back unless they change the menu again."

  • "Everyone always talks about the "food" experience, but I believe what continues to bring us back week after week, is not ONLY the food but definately the service! The waitresses in Martini's are what MAKE the dining experience at Martini's. Charcoal Group does an amazing job of finding ..... and keeping extremely friendly and efficient staff. Each week we return, we are greeted by many of the servers who remember us and always seem to find time to stop by the table and check on us. Keep it up .....great job!"

  • "Always love coming here, however this time was far too loud. We came with friends that live in Kitchener and I am from here also but moved away. We came here to enjoy the food and ambience but found it far too noisy. We were not able to talk much without yelling at one another it was so loud. Perhaps turning up the music after 10pm for more of the bar scene would be okay. Earlier while people are trying to eat and have a nice conversation with family and friends is a bit much."

  • "True to its name, Martinis has incredible alcoholic beverages. Definitely some of the best martinis I've had. The food has always been excellent; I'd like to make particular note of their appetizer poutine. It's incredible! I definitely recommend trying it. I have usually gone with my boyfriend, but also enjoy going with friends. Make note that it's usually quite loud there, so if you're looking for somewhere quiet and intimate I wouldn't recommend here."

  • "Our recent visit on a stormy Saturday night didn't warm us up much. We weren't celebrating the everyday events like birthdays and anniversaries we were celebrating grand parenthood. We were asked if it was a special occasion but when we replied yes it wasn't acknowledged at all. I ordered the beef tip poutine. It was the most unappealing dish to be placed in front of someone. The normal gravy that normally smothers poutine was an au juis that made the whole dish a sloppy mess with extremely soggy fries. The waitress. Never asked why I didn't enjoy or eat my dinner she just took it away after cleaning up the au juis that she had spilled on the floor. Not the top notch food or service we had come to really enjoy from the charcoal group"

  • "Our group of ladies have a wonderful lunch, the only complaint that I heard was the service was a little slow, it didn't bother me as I was enjoying the company that was there. These ladies go out to lunch once a month, we try to do different restaurants each month, so far we have done quite a few all have been good. Thanks for having us and I really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, because I will be back. Thanks"

  • "Once again the experience at Martinis was fantastic. This is the 4th time I have gone to Martinis, Our waitress Mary was superb she was attentive but not overbearing. we always had fresh drinks and water, she accommodated each request and made the evening special. For those of you who have allergies to food any Charcoal Group restaurant is a good choice. The chef changed the burger I ordered to suite my Dairy Free requirement. This was a real treat because I rarely eat burgers and this one was delicious. I would like to add that I have been to Del Dante's, Beer Town and the Charcoal Steakhouse and have yet to have a bad experience. :)"

  • "This is a really great place. But in the last few months there seem to be changes, not very tangible, but if you know the place, it's clear that they are starting to slip. I hope they catch it soon. The drinks are usually good, but food is getting a bit tired. They are trying to be everything to everybody, and that may be the issue. This place is something that is lacking in the KW area: a great quiet spot to have a nice dinner and relax with friends. Turn off the big screen TVs, you're not a sports bar. Select your music.. are you really a hip-hop type bar as the evening wears on? No."

  • "After a long time between visits, we were craving their Beef Dip and French Onion Soup - decided to take my father in law along with us. It was probably a mistake to decide on Martini's as it was too loud for my father in law but we loved the food and Jenn was as wonderful as always. Nice to be back!"

  • "A friend and myself celebrated her birthday at Martini's last Friday evening. We wanted to just enjoy being out , having some food , drink and conversation. Being December the place was busy and "energetic" but there is enough room among the tables that you were not overwhelmed by the conversations around.Our server was terrific.She understood we wanted a relaxed time and did not need to rush between courses.She warned us that a large group was arriving and asked us if we wanted to get our order in before them or if we would prefer to wait a bit.Really appreciated her thoughtfulness.Food was good, Manhattans were good and wine was good and service was terrific.Good evening .Thanks."

  • "I enjoyed my Martini experience. It so happened that this was a first date with a gentleman. When I made the reservation I had requested an area of the restaurant when good conversation would be enjoyed (I am hard of hearing). We were given a corner booth and the service & food- excellent. There was some construction - hammering going on outside. The wait staff did ask us if we could be moved to another table due to the hammering but we declined. Even at that the hammering stopped for at least one hour (not to sure if that was really coincidence or not ) so if in fact the work team outside were requested to stop... Thank you! I had a great date and great meal! :)"

  • "This restaurant exceeds my every expectation every time I eat there. I have NEVER been disappointed here. The flavours are incredible, the plating is beautiful considering the chef(s) are usually very busy, and the portion sizes are worth the money. Some of the best food I've ever eaten. The pasta is amazing. The wonton nachos are something I crave on a weekly basis and I would frequent this place once a week if my pockets were deep enough. I've tried many restaurants since first trying Martinis and have never been back to any of them. Martinis will always be my favourite. The chef is as talented as he is inspiring. As far as the restaurant atmosphere and aesthetics go - it's a beautiful environment to be in. If you haven't been, try it."
