    The girls and I were out for our monthly get together. We decide on a different restaurant to visit each month, this time it was Martini's. May I say what a great night we had, the food was terrific, the service was perfect and the atmosphere really set the mood for the night. Love the new menu. Keep up the good work and we may have to make this our "monthly" spot more often.

    We love Martinis. It is great. the only issue i had on Saturday was that a couple of our meals were wrong and did not realize it until halfway through our meal at which point we thought it was too late to send it back. nonetheless a great meal as usual.

    As always the food was great, always a nice place to meet co-workers or business people at lunch although can be on the louder side. Waitstaff are always excellent and really on top of things. I especially enjoy the bread at the beginning. i can recommend the Cobb salad, it was terrific.

    We love Martini's. The fact that you can also order from the Charcoal Steakhouse is an added bonus. My husband and I recently celebrated our 20th anniversary there in February and they made the night memorable with champagne with cherries and a wonderful dessert. Keep up the fantastic service and great food!

I also visit Martini's some Friday/Saturday nights and find the bar area a great place, friendly people, good service, great drink selection. A repeat customer for sure. Thank you, Julie

    Our experience at Martini's was wonderful. we always know when we want a good meal where to go. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. Would recommend and will go back again for another special occasion. The only thing is your martini's are very pricy. Not sure I would get again at those prices.

    We are regular customers at Martinis and would have no problem recommending it to anyone. The staff are friendly and engaging, food is consistently good with a wide selection. The Ahi Tuna is highly recommended as is the macadamia encrusted roughy. My steak was cooked to perfection. Great casual dining with an up-scale feel. Extensive winelist to satisfy taste and budget, with several vintages at the high end.

We enjoy our Martini's and will go again and again!! The ONLy thing that has changed for the worst but understandable, is that we find the new price for a 2oz is quite $$$$$ now and we will now have to adjust our visiting frequency to suit budget.

    I had the Pad Thai which was awesome .... and I've sampled variations of it around the world. Definitely in my top 5. Service, atmosphere, food ... all were great. The only "improvement opportunity" comment to offer is that our coffee's were luke-warm and had to be replaced. The wait staff made the switch promptly and graciously. All in all, a v-e-r-y positive evening.

By the time it came back my group was finished eatting. The server forgot to bring a salad that we ordered. To be honest we use to love going to Martini's friday/sat nights I think we will stop for a while because the food quality and service was really bad this time.

When we dined at del Dante's, they didn't stop complaining e.g. too dark, too noisy, too crowded etc... The food was well seasoned, the portions were perfect and everything was served at once and at the correct temperature. Well done! We will DEFINATELY be back!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 5/2/2008
    The waitress was terrible. We were reminding her of things she kept forgetting to bring, the last round of drinks we ordered never made it to our table. Dishes weren't cleared from the table from our appetizers so it was awkward trying to pile dishes and find a spot for when our entrees arrived. We've been to Martini's numerous times and never experienced poor service, this was the first time. Would have completed a comment card however one wasn't provided at the end of our meal as it usually is. But the food was great, love the atmosphere and we had a great time with each other so it didn't spoil the night.

Presentation isn;t verything but it is something. Our server was nice. Took a while to get to us to start. I work in the industry and I know that Friday nights can be busy but I would have appreciated a bit more attention. I will come back though because I always give second chances.
