Food was good but service was slow and indifferent. seemed like restaurant's focus was on large groups.

Everything was very good except the skirt steak. Although it was supposed to ge marinated, it had zero flavor.
The waiter offered sauce on the side and the manager gave us 1 free dessert.

You would not expect a meat centric place like this to have such deft hands at seafood. We decided to try several different dishes. All were perfectly cooked, delicious and generous portions. We will be back to try other dishes as we explore their interesting menu.

Waiter John, was excellent and really made us feel comfortable. We will return because of such attentive service. I really like this restaurant and wish them continued success. Truly a neighborhood jewel.

Been eating at this restaurant for 30 years and have never been disappointed. The food and the service are top notch. The ambience is great and the bar with Ernie behind it is unparalleled. Weekends can be a little noisy. All in all a great place to dine.

George Martin is our go to restaurant, it’s like visiting an old friend. We always feel welcomed and the wait staff is so friendly, professional and attentive without being intruding. The filet mignonette sliders are my guilty pleasure, as much as the specials and other menu items tempt me I keep coming back for them. Never disappointed.

First time there. Quickly seated and attended to. Maple honey butter to doe for. Beet and pear salad w/ Roquefort cheese superb and brought quickly. Loved the steak and crab cake. Nice ambiance, but could be more "clubby." A must visit.

Amazing food and service - no complaints at all. The pretzel crusted salmon should be their signature dish, it’s phenomenal, and the Brie appetizer was simply fabulous. We normally go to the Syosset location and love it there, but the original in RVC is somehow even better!!

george martin is a great restaurant ,we have been there many times. my sugestion would be the waiters or busboys need to wait until everyone at the table finishes there food before starting to pull dishes away, it makes the person still eating very uncomfortable. i have requested that proedure to many restaurants i have gone to. i just tell the waiter now at the beginning of our meal.

Quite simply- this place never ever disappoints!!! The varied menu is perfect whether I want something light or a nice juicy steak dinner. The wine/drinks are always a healthy pour and the service is outstanding. Excellent food, great service, fair and reaonable price point- can't ask for more!!!

We went for my son's 28th birthday. It is a family favorite for everything from pasta to steak. It is a go to place when we want a delicious family dinner. We even keep gift cards in the house.
