It was a second date and had to keep it local; our server, Lauren was extremely friendly, engaging and professional. An appetizer that I previously had wasn't on the menu, however, I asked about it and Lauren informed me that they'd be happy to prepare it as an appetizer! Woohoo for Nonna's meatballs! The chili pop shrimp was also very good and my steak was cooked perfectly and my date had more than enough pasta to take home!
all in all, a wonderful evening and fantastic treatment b y the staff!
Perfect restaurant to celebrate our son’s graduation. The service and food were top notch. Our steaks were cooked to perfection! I would recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or even date night. We look forward to our next visit.
We were seated on time and had a very enjoyable meal
Outstanding service, food prepared expertly, overall great experience. I miss my short ribs entrée.
Food and service was outstanding. Brad our server was friendly, outgoing and very knowledgeable. Will be coming back shortly !!!
George Martin is consistently enjoyable. The friendly and professional staff, updated menus and delicious food keep us coming back. It is one of our favorites!!!
Top quality food with a nice variety. Staff is courteous and attentive.
Overall excellent, highly recommend. Speedy service and staff was very accommodating
Excellent as always! I was there with a few consultants and we sat for a while which they didn’t mind. Noise level was high but it was because we were sitting near a big group, it didn’t bother us because we were loud too. I have been there with my husband for “date night” and they sat us in a quieter part of the restaurant, they always seem to accommodate especially if you let them know when making the reservation.
Food was excellent. I had two appetizers since I love both the sesame tuna and the mussels. Plenty of food for me. We were there for wine down Wednesday with the $25 bottles of wine great way to wind down:)
Christen O’Donnell was a phenomenal waitress and the food was great
As always, the service and the food were top notch. There is nothing like it on Long Islands south shore
the noise level is difficult for seniors...maybe a roomjust for us and no music.
It's always a pleasure to go to George Martin the Original. Service and food are always terrific. Never a bad meal there, one of my favorite places to dine. Highly recommend for its consistency.
First time in this place.
Great food and service.
We are definitely going back.
always good food and service and a special thanks to the manager who recognized a problem and quickly solved the problem without even asking.
When my best friends come to town, I would take them here for the cuisine.
Never disappointed when we have a meal at George Martin. Service is professional, Wine list and drinks are always updated and top shelf. Servers are courteous, caring, and make your meal special. The menu has something for everyone. If you want a quieter atmosphere ask for the side room. Reservations are accepted and you are seated within 5 minutes of the time you reserved.
My party all agreed George Martin is consistently great.
Service from the front desk to the wait staff very good. Food is excellent.
We dined at George Martin on Mother's Day. I don't usually like going out on these holidays because sometimes the restaurants are extremely crowded and noisy. When we arrived, we were seated in a very nice room, which had adequate seating and was not overly crowded or noisy. The service we received was excellent. The food was also excellent. The steak and crab cake dish was delicious, as was the chicken dish my husband ate. The brownie and ice cream dessert was amazing. All the food was ordered from their Mother's Day menu and I felt that there were more than enough choices and very well priced. Overall, a very enjoyable dinner.
Went to GM Original for Mother’s Day always worry about going to a restaurant on a holiday- especially Mother’s Day or Alice. Will they honor the reservation, will be rushed, will the service be up to par, will they have their menu or only limited choices. Well we were 110% impressed and pleased with dinner. We were sat exactly at our reserved time. The staff was exceptional and friendly - on complete top of their game. They did have a special menu with all sorts of choices for Mother’s Day. We were also told if you want something from the regular menu - not on the special one just ask. We did- no problem!! Everything was great!!! High praise to the Chef and all staff. A great night!!!!
Excellent all around. Love this place.
Excellent mussels, calamari, skirt steak, and fish. Stick to the beer and wine. Key lime pie was delicious! I have been to George Martin’s other restaurant as well - this one is much better in terms of space, lighting, food, and service.
It would be nice if I received points for my reservation
Excellent service, but the table was right next to the bar and little noisier than necessary. It would have been a perfect experience if we were seated in the “side car” area and not against the bar wall.
Good specials and an excellent wine special.
Overall it was a great birthday dinner.
Wonderful food. Server Pete (or Paul) was fantastic. All the server was great. Desserts on the small side everything else were hearty portions.
Love love love this place each and every time!!! Highly recommend for food, service and fun!
It was a great dinner! John is an excellent server and we were treated so well by him and everyone else at George Martin. We'll be back!!
Chicken Tacos were a little too spicy for me this time.
As always, Suzanne and her wait staff and great chefs make a visit the the Original George Martin a dining extravaganza. It can not be beat on the south shore of Long Island and I feel just as good, if not better, than most restaurants in other parts of Long Island or New York City.
I would recommend this restaurant to one and all. Just enjoy!
Great deal for restaurant week. Really enjoyed the menu options.
We were looking for a casual place for our date night that had a steak option. After seeing so many great reviews online and our night happen to fall on Long Island Restaurant Week - we opted for this place. We reserved online, requesting a table in the quieter room. They honored our request and we were seated upon arrival. My boyfriend and I decided to do the 3 course restaurant week menu for $29. Complimentary bread was OK - the whipped butters that came with it were the highlight. The mussels in a garlic broth was the best course. I ordered the steak - medium with truffle fries. The steak came out almost well with zero flavor and the fries had no seasoning let alone any hint of truffle oil flavor. Paper fries. My bf had the ribs and mac and cheese. The ribs were tender and saucy but nothing great. The mac and cheese was ok, yet dried out pasta. Their "popular" brownie wasn't what I had expected. It was more of a cake mix and yet another item that was underwhelming. But, the most disappointing part of our experience was - SERVICE. Our server really could've cared less with answering our questions about the food. She never smiled. She rarely asked how everything was throughout each course. In fact, we had more face time with the bus boy than our server. With such high regards from online reviews for such a well to do restaurant, especially during RESTAURANT WEEK... service and food quality combined will be the reason we will not return to this establishment.
Went out for a birthday. Our waiter was excellent as was the food and service . Love this place
My family has enjoyed George Martins for many years. The food and service are always quite good. At our most recent dinner we ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. It was a very good value. We even took home some leftovers for lunch the next day. My only complaint is that my chicken was overcooked. I should have sent it back. The George Martin Brownie is a classic; it's always great.
We got engaged and frequent this restaurant twice a year at least. No complaints!
George Martin simply never disappoints. Food is outstanding quality (the chopped salad is really special...also very filling....couldn't finish my steak!). We were there for my wife's birthday but coincidentally, it was also restaurant week; I expected portions to be a little more conservative on the very reasonably priced prix fix....I could not have been more wrong! I ordered a la carte off the main menu (to get something that wasn't on the fixed menu) and rest of our group got the prix fix. All portions were generous! Service was also spot on, although would have hoped server would have asked whose birthday it was in advance rather than trying to figure it out when desserts were brought to table! But all in all a great meal. One of the best places in the RVC area (and there's a lot of competition!).
Good food, good people, real nice specials all the time, a keeper.
Mediocre food. Restaurant is way too noisy.
My husband and I do not get to go out to eat together very often, and we also operate on a budget. My husband LOVES beef, but I do not. I would not have chosen this spot had it not been restaurant week, and had the special menu not been posted online. I liked that there were plenty of choices that were not steak - chicken, seafood, and vegetarian options were included. The menu was very unique and featured a variety of dishes I would consider
"American fusion," unlike what I would expect from a typical steak house. I also appreciated that the waitstaff was mature, and knowledgeable of the menu items. Our food came out very quickly - which could've been due to the fact that it was busy because of restaurant week, but I am unsure since this was our first time eating at this restaurant. The portions were the perfect size - not too small or too large. My husband had buffalo chicken tacos as an app, steak frites for his entree, and the brownie sundae for dessert. I had the [avocado] toast as my app, jalepeno and tequilla shrimp with rice and beans as my entree, and the french vanilla poundcake for dessert. The toast was different and delicious, the shrimp were slightly overcooked though the dish itself was very good, but the poundcake was fresh, presumably homemade, and absolutely amazing!
We had a great time at dinner.....food and service was outsanding.
Great Restaurant Week Menu.
Excellent evening My friend’s birthday. I don’t stray from my neighborhood, but I know George Martin, having been there many years ago. Still great!
The fish was delicious and was the veggie main. Mussels are out of this world as is the no flour Chocolate cake.
Great service and not tooo noisy.
