Had the pleasure of having dinner at George Martin Original last night. This place never lets us down. Our friends and my wife each started with a wedge salad. I opted for the French onion soup. They lived their salsas but for me the soup was a show stopper!! Best onion soup I can remember having. Came out the way I like it -piping hot, loaded with melted cheese and full of onions!! 2 of us had the filet mignon and 2 the Bronzino. We can argue over made the better choice - bottom line- all delicious and perfectly cooked !! Plenty of veggies as well. Coffee around and shared some the delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies. Service was - as usual top notch!! Can’t wait to go back!!!

The food and service was great. I went with my husband and 2 little girls and we got the restaurant week special. He got the strip steak and I got the Chicken parm. We had the cheesecake and brownie sundae and they were both delicious.

We went for Restaurant Week which I have done many times. The menu was always much better than this one. Choices just ok and food just ok. I wish they used this week to showcase their dishes instead of offering mediocre food.

We were there for LI Restaurant Week so the menu was price fixed ($35), with enough variety and 3 courses so the food was outstanding. George Martin has been in business for 30+ years in Rockville Centre and it continues to offer interesting menus, great service and a warm ambiance that enhances every meal, restaurant week or any week of the year. Never had a bad meal or experience there.

George Martin is the best around ! The duck taco special was absolutely amazing ! Our server George was very helpful , polite and helped me decide on ordering the special fish ! Which was also amazing. The manager Suzanne came over and checked on us multiple times to make sure we were enjoying our experience. This place does it right ! Can’t wait to return !!!

It was a birthday dinner. Delicious meal, excellent service. Entrees were good but the appetizers are always the highlight. The meatball entree is a must. Other favs are the Crunchy Sesame Tuna, Bee Sting Honey Wings, and Chili Pop shrimp.

This was my 4th or 5th time there. Only complaints are the table was very small and crowded, table for 4 should be bigger and the cooking was a little off from the usual quality (steaks a little over and the fried apps are usually crispier and better sauced). Since it’s been a pretty consistent spot, I’m hoping the cooking was an off night or the regular chef is on vacation or something.

Btw..Pecan Pie Sundae is delicious. A must!

We went to George Martin the Original on a Wednesday, and had the flat iron steak prix fixe dinner. Appetizers were the split pea soup and the tuna. All was delicious, the service was wonderful, from the time we entered the restaurant to the time we left. We will be back.
