Just average. Service was good but food was subpar and very bland. Had to put salt and pepper on everything to make it taste better, and then had to ask for hot sauce and ketchup. Not what I had expected for a pricier restaurant. Didn’t hate it, but would not go back again.

George Martin the original is one of my favorite restaurants. The popovers and bread they serve with hummus and maple butter spreads are amazing ..... I love their GM chopped salad with filet mignon. I tried the almond crusted cod special which was excellent -I prefer sitting in a booth in the back or the sidecar room - the area in the front by the host station is too noisy and busy. George Martin the original never disappoints!!

This is a nice neighborhood restaurant. We always choose it when we have tickets at the Madison Theater. The noise level can be high. Pick the back room if you prefer a quieter dinner. The only downside is that the chairs in the back are not comfortable. The food ranges from mediocre to excellent, depending on what you order. The service was attentive. The front entrance is very crowded with little or no room if you are waiting for a table.

The restaurant was very crowded and very very loud. We sat in an area where the tables were close together. The bread was excellent served with three different types of butter. The drinks were decently flavored but a bit overpriced. Our appetizer a chopped salad was good but the large sharing size was not that big. The pretzel and mustard covered salmon wad excellent as were the vegetables it came with. My wife’s bbq ribs were huge she could hardly finish it. The cake and sorbet we had for dessert were ok. All in all it was a pleasant experience good food and service only problem was the loud noise level so be prepared

We have always had a good experience at George Martin. This Easter I left my eyeglasses on the table. When we got home, we got a phone call from George Martin telling us about the glasses. I probably wouldn't have realized they were missing until the next day. Thanks for taking care of them.

We must have dined here at least a half dozen times since we moved to town. The service and food is exceptional. We never have a bad meal and the cocktails are fantastic. I try to order the specials because they are always delicious.

Been coming to the various GM restaurants for years. All top quality food, atmosphere and service - 9/10 times. Must’ve drawn that 1/10 chance because yesterday was notably poor. Let me preface: food was good - service was remarkably bad. Multiple times our orders came out botched or partially complete, constant clarification from waitress, if we could find the waitstaff they weren’t very attentive. It was a slow Monday night, there’s no excuse for it especially for the price and ambiance you pay to eat there.

I got the French Onion Soup and The 12 oz Filet Mignon medium rare wih spaetzle and mushrooms. Someone else ordered the Cabernet Braised Boneless Beef Short Ribs with whipped potatoes. And the third person ordered the Crisp Panko Crusted Chicken Cutlet (milanese style). Everything came out great. If you go on a Sunday try to get there before 6:30 pm because after that it gets crowded.

Great drinks - Espresso Martini, The Old-Fashioned, and Dirty Martini. Eventhough the restaurant ran out of two fish dishes on the menu, the Tuna dish was very good. Short rib main course was amazing, they even split it for us in two separate plates. For appetizer we loved the meatballs and avocado toast. For desert we had keylime pie and fresh fruit with lime gelato and we enjoyed both very much.

We have been coming to George Martin for several years now to celebrate special occasions. The food and service are always excellent, and they surprised my daughter with a birthday dessert, I am thinking based on my open table reservation. That was impressive.

George Martin The Original is a special place to have dinner . It is very pretty and cozy, with a warm casual atmosphere . The menu is not ordinary , and the food is really good , as well as the presentation . Had dinner Saturday on St Paddy's Day .. the special salmon was perfectly cooked and delicious , as was the avocado toast with muzzerella and tomato drizzled with balsamic .. the potato leak soup was amazing .. Dessert was a pecan pie like dessert with vanilla ice cream... very yummy to end the meal!
The service was outstanding .. we had an excellent waitress who was attentive and very pleasant. Can't wait to go back !

Food and drinks were excellent and the hostess recognized we were on a date and placed us in an appropriate area. Those little attention to detail steps to a long way for foodies like us. We've been here before and are extremely happy we returned.
