Right before Christmas I bought a $100 Gift Certificate and asked the young lady up front about an old gift certificate (5 years old) that I had just found in my drawer. She took it to the manager and said that , although it says on the certificate that it expires in on e year that they would give me $50 on it. Although I thought that this was wrong, I left and returned last night with some friends. I explained the situation to the night manager who said that should would only credit $25 even after I told her that a different manager a few weeks ago said $50.

BAD BUSINESS. the $$ is not too important but it is still BAD BUSINESS.

Was here for a business lunch with colleagues. Food was very good, service was friendly and attentive, but no intrusive, and the restaurant was relatively quiet. Everyone was happy with their meals. I will hold business lunches here again.

We are huge fans of this restaurant and came for NYE- party of 8. Food was excellent and the staff accommodated dietary requests. Our only disappointment was that it was a limited holiday menu and it didn’t include the GM Skirt Steak - also 3 of us ordered the Seafood Trio and they ran out of scallops. Otherwise highly recommend!

George Martin's is good value for the dollar. The menu offers a wide variety of selections and the food is excellent. The one drawback to the restaurant is the noise level. Some times it's difficult to hear other people at your table (unless your seated in the back of the restaurant or in the little dining area to the side.

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.

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.
