First time in. We came to dinner on a recommendation from a friend. Everything was great the service and the special swordfish were excellent. The marinated strawberries with whipped cream and pound cake was so simple and a perfect end to the meal.

We come here often and always have quality meals no matter what we order. Staff is friendly and check on us at appropriate intervals. Nice cocktails. Our only complaint is that sometimes the lighting is a little too dark.

Amazing food. A little pricey but worth the money. I reserved for a special occasion and the wait staff inquired about the occasion, which was very thoughtful. I’ll definitely be back.

Food and service was very good, however, because it is very busy the noise level was rather high. Also, we were seated by the front door and next to the greeter which tended to add to the distractions and noise. All and all we do plan to return and try to get a table in a less hectic area.

Food was absolutely delicious. Everything prepared perfectly and the bread they served beforehand was hot and tasty. Busboys were great, but we felt somewhat ignored by the waitress. Perhaps because we were sitting in the back? Still a great dining experience.

The ambiance of the restaurant was very, very nice. The service was outstanding. The manager came over to us and asked us is everything was alright. The food was excellent and great for the money. We ordered coffees but no dessert but the waitress brought us a complimentary lemon bar which was to die for. The restaurant is very noisy but we were still able to have a conversation without any problems.

The entire process was outstanding, we were greeted by one of the mangers who mentioned us by name as we were on time. Made my day!!! The server also greeted us also and reviewed the menu. The cocktails selection was ideal. We knew the menu and the GM chop salad which is always outstanding. The bride ordered the seafood Trio which included shrimp. scallops and crab cakes. I also like sea scallops and paired that with short ribs. The short ribs melted in your mouth. The staff was around and mindful of our progress and took the opportune time to ensure we were happy with the meal. the manager also took a moment to ensure that we were completely happy. Another great experience 48th Anniversary

From beginning to end, we had a lovely anniversary dinner. We were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" and shown directly to our table. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. Our drink order was taken and served promptly. We were asked if we wanted more of the excellent popovers. We had the sesame tuna wonton appetizer and the jaeger schnitzel. We ordered just coffee, because we were so full, but a beautifully presented lemon square with a Happy Anniversary sign came with it. Everyone from the hostesses, to the waiter and busboys were all lovely and the food was so delicious! Thank you George Martin for making our night so special!

We very much enjoyed our meal at George Martin. The food, service and atmosphere were excellent! It was a little noisy but I think that was because of the two at the table next to us who were quite loud. That was not the restaurant’s fault.
