The bacon wrapped tenderloin,
The bacon wrapped tenderloin, house made chips and the nachos were delicious. We ordered some antojitos and were very disappointed; We finished two of them and set the rest aside. We had two waitresses throughout the night, Mary and Michelle. Neither were overly friendly or welcoming and the service was quite slow. There were a few times over the course of the night when we did not know where they were or why our drinks were taking so long (we waited upwards of 10 minutes for one round). The atmosphere was great and we would definitely come back for the great food.

My sister in law was visiting
My sister in law was visiting from BC and most of my family live in the Burlington area. We decided that we would meet somewhat in the middle and chose Martini's because we could get a reservation that Sunday. What a great time we had. We had a 20 month old with us and although we did not have a great table to put a high chair at, no one made a fuss about any inconvenience we may have caused.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere and we really appreciated the fact that we were not rushed at all.
What a great afternoon. Thank you.

Martini's has a lot going
Martini's has a lot going for it. It's always busy, but there is still room. Service is excellent. The staff are pros. The menu is unique, the food flavourful, but just in case that's not enough, you can choose from the Charcoal Steakhouse menu as well.
Good food, great value, good company. How can you miss?

Mother's Day Brunch
Took my mom here for Mother's Day Brunch this year... I used to come with my parents as a kid all the time for brunch whenever my grandpa came to town and I had great memories of Saturday morning omelet. In 20 years, some things haven't changed. The omelets were still delicious and made to order, and the buffet selection was fantastic.

Mother's Day Brunch - Spectacular!
We were all extremely impressed with the Mother's Day Brunch that we attended. The food was amazing, and the server, understandably a little slow simply because of the volume of people in the restaurant, was friendly and courteous. The personalized omelets were a big hit at our table! Atmosphere was great, too - not too loud, which was surprising, given the fact that it was pretty crowded! Would DEFINITELY recommend this place, and intend to go back very soon!

My friends and I always go to Martini's to celebrate our birthdays. We love the design your own pasta option and are always happy with our meals. Great place with great ambiance.

It was great. We were taken immediately to the table and the server was there almost immediately.
The food was superb and the service was great. I had been there many times with my parents in the 60s and 70s.
The place has changed considerably from when it was The Charcoal Steak House above the old Highway Market and I will say for the better.
We had a great time and enjoyed the meal very much.
Thank You again.

We frequently enjoy the Charcoal Group with Martini's being one of the closest ones to us. We have always enjoyed a good meal with friends at Martini's. At times it can get loud with the low ceilings, but that is to be expected. Service is always great!
We will be back!

We come her often and are very happy with our meal every time. The waitresses are always very pleasant and the service has always been exceptional. Will keep coming back.

Always good at the Charcoal Group
If you're eating in the Kitchener/Waterloo region one of the Chargoal Group restaurants will never do you wrong. Whenever I have guests from out of town I always make one of their locations a must visit and Martini's is probably top of my list.
The nice thing about this location is that you have the choice of ordering from any of the three menus (Charcoal Steakhouse, Martinis and Del Dantes all share a physical building), however food ordered from Del Dantes at one of the other two restaurants can't be guaranteed at the same time due to having it's own kitchen.
Their one property, Beertown, is not somewhere I would go for a meal, but is good if you want something more casual for a couple of beers after work or later in the evening.

Great food + Great service
We were given a reasonable amount of time with the menus before ordering two main courses and an app to share. The food came relatively quickly and was absolutely delicious. The 'create your own' pasta card is a fantastic idea; clear outline of what is available, tractability of what was ordered, and a great deal of flexibility. Pricing was expected to be higher than average - but the bill was still reasonable considering the quality of food served. Very kind and friendly staff, everybody greeted us and multiple people ensured we had a good evening. Overall a great night!

We come to Martinis often and enjoy it every time! We miss the ngocci that used to be on the menu but is no longer there. It would be nice to have another ngocci item added. Fantastic wonton nachos, garlic Creme pasta, and beef dip!

We were a group of 13 and we preordered our food. It was on the table within 5 minutes
of sitting down. Extremely efficient service, very professional. Our birthday boy
received a free dessert which was a nice touch! Thanks again for a great lunch.

We celebrated my son's 24th birthday at Martini's the other night and it was outstanding. We are regular diners here and so expected it to be a great place to celebrate a birthday! The service was over the top fabulous, very attentive without being bothersome. LOVE LOVE LOVE the pasta bar, and the french onion soup is one of the best in the Tri-Cities!!
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of my favorite!!
I have always enjoyed the atmosphere at Martinis. My favorite on the menu is the sweet potato fries. The customer service is always exceptional. We have been dining there for a number of years and will return.

Catching up with friends
Noise level was perfect for talking. Table was private but fun. Food was excellent. Only downside was one steak was over cooked-at a steak restaurant (!!) so our friend sat for a bit while we ate. They were very nice about it but he was uncomfortable. The washrooms are to die for. Pad thai was not what we expected (creamy?) but good. Blue cheese burger was great, spinach salad with steak was perfect.
Staff was attentive but not annoying. Prices were great. We will go back again.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my friend out for a celebration. Excellent food and service. I did want acknowledgement for her celebration. It wasn't a birthday and the waitress did acknowledge it, however, no special celebration. The hostess said maybe a truffle or dessert. Thought it would have been nice.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
As per usual, our meal was outstanding. The Caesar salad is by far the best I have ever had and to what I compare every other one I try. Service is always prompt and attentive. I've been with a group of girls, with my spouse, and as a family with our two children and it met our needs very time.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Your staff thought of everything for this special occasion. Dining was very relaxed,great placement in the restaurant, we were put at the back near the fireplace, more intimate which is what I wanted. Food was awesome, service amazing-2 waitresses couldn't have asked for more. I was even happy with the total of the bill! When does that happen!
Will come again and highly recommend Martinis for celebratory gatherings.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Martinis (and all the Charcoal Companies) is always great, you can trust that the food tastes good, is prompt and the service is always friendly and professional.
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
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.

I went to Martinis for the first time with g.f. (im from out of town) on Saturday evening. Was very pleased with everything. Service, Food, Drinks, Ambience.....everything was great. We made a reservation a few days in advance and were able to walk in and be seated right away. I will definitely go back!

first date was great!
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! :)

Our family decided to take my mother to brunch at Martini's for her birthday. The food was great and so was the service, we will definitely be returning. Especially after my mother said it was one of the best breakfasts she's ever had.
