As always, the food, service and atmosphere was above and beyond expectations. Our
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.

Went during L.I. Restaurant Week, great menu choices for $28.95 3-course meal. Chose the SteakFrites; steak was tender, delicious and perfectly cooked. Also very friendly and accommodating service. Overall a wonderful dinner out with friends.

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.

I eat here often and was disappointed this time. We asked the waitress for bread which we were told would be brought to the table. It wasn't. We ordered the special lunch walnut and chicken salad; there were no walnuts. Upon request, the waitress brought out a bowl of walnut halves.
I requested to speak with the manager who offered to remake the lunch to include the walnuts. Instead we decided to let the kitchen chop the walnuts which we would add to our salads.
The manager subtracted our one glass of wine each from the bill.
I was quite surprised that a highlighted menu item was not prepared as per the menu.

The food was very good. I just wish you weren't rushed through your dinner. Appetizers, dinner came out all on top of each other. Then there asking if you want dessert and gets an attitude when you asked if we could wait a couple minutes.

We had such a great time at George Martin! Everything was great! The food was excellent and the service was even better. We had Annie as our waitress and she went above and beyond. She was very attentive and made sure that anything we asked for was taken care of. It was my brother's birthday and we brought our own cake, but the staff at George Martin added their own personal touch to the dessert which was very thoughtful and kind. Overall, an outstanding experience and we will definitely be back in the near future!
