Place was busy on a Friday night. We were traveling through and used open table to find a place. food good, service OK but would have liked the waiter to check in from time to time instead of me having to flag him down each time. Tables seemed small and the noise level was high.
The meal was slow coming from the kitchen but our server Stephanie made up for it.
Great find in the center of Valencia. Good was fantastic, Service was perfect... A little too bright and open for the atmosphere but if you like food, you'll like Marston's.
In an area where there are too many franchises and a "white-tablecloth" restaurant a rarity this was a great find.Our waiter was excellent and of good humor. Martinis were perfect and generous.
Consistently good in all areas. In good weather the outdoor patio is a delight. Service is consistently attentive.
Great Food and Service helped 4 friends get together and enjoy a terrific evening out...the staff was very attentive and Nick was great...
I do not live in the area but had a relative I don't get to see very often meet me at Marstons for brunch. It was a perfect choice as we all enjoyed the food and service. We will be retuning.
The night we dined, there were several large groups. Noise level was quite high. If you want an intimate conversation or only to just hear your companions, I would not recommend the restaurant, especially weekend nights.
Excellent food and service; very noisy, though. Large Birthday party being held. But, will be back!
Great all around menu, with specials that change weekly. Fair prices. Wonderful wine and spirit selection as well. This has become a very popular local favorite, and it's very obvious why that is. All very unique , fresh menu items. Something here for everyone.
Went with a group for brunch. Very good menu, the special potatos were delicious, everyone loved them. Food was really good.
Will go again, want to try for lunch or dinner.
Went on Valentine's day. Excellent menu. Everything made to order. Seasoned perfectly. I would expect the chef to win Chopped on the cooking channel.
The Cauliflower-Brie soup was divine and set the precedent for the Saturday night special of Blackened Rib Eye Steak that was well-seasoned & perfectly prepared I don't normally eat a side a potatoes, but their creamy mashed potatoes were too delicious to resist. The sautéed fresh spinach was exactly what I would have chosen to accompany the meal and the glass of Malbec complemented everything deliciously. And I can never resist their yummy iced passion fruit tea, so refreshing as well!
Most people are familar with Marston's for their incedible breakfast selections. However, they also have award winning dinner selections. We chose Marston's for a girl's night out dinner and it was wonderful for this event. The wine and bar list had a great selections of great wines by the glass and wonderful martini's for us. Then, the food selection was amazing from homemade chicken or salmon pot pies to fish tacos. Every dish we selected was delicious and the wait staff was just right in knowing when we needed them so we could indulge in our conversations. Dessert selections again were fantastic. We all went away very satisfied having spent a wonderful evening with friends, good food and drinks.
Our gathering place unamous choice.
Highly recommend it.
tim, our waiter was emphatic in describing the baby back rib thursday special as exceptionally tasty. i was skeptical as i have found few places with acceptable ribs. tim was correct - the ribs were quite tasty - i was glad i took his recommendation. the apple and fennel slaw was a nice compliment to the ribs.
my bride had a fucilli and chicken dish with truffle oil that was also quite nice.
based on the food and very good service, we will return
Great find out here where quality restaurants are few and far between. Well drinks here are reasonably priced and so are the wine by the glass prices. The "Ahi Tuna Tartare with Soba noodles" while delicious is way over priced at $17.95, sure its a generous portion and meticulously prepared .... but come on this is Santa Clarita! $12 is more in line with what they give you and I eat out a lot. But all things considered they do a good job here. We had a very attentive on the ball server who checked in with us frequently. Mind you we had a 8pm on a Tuesday reservation and is one of there low traffic time periods. WE will be back. BTW the steak was great! And reasonably priced at $24
Went for dinner on a Sunday night. We waited a while before anyone approached us, but when we were finally seated, our server Alex took care of us! The wait staff were kept busy, this place was buzzing, a good sign. The flavored butter and bread was a nice start, it was lightly toasted sliced bread, a nice change of pace from the usual bun. We ordered a salad and two different steak sandwiches, all three were good. The decor reminded me of big chain restaurants, I was surprised to get this quality of food there. I got a family vibe there, like everyone who worked there were friends and knew the regulars. We will be going back to try other menu items that sounded good. The burger looked amazing.
Whoever picked the wines did a fantastic job!
The food, drinks and service were great. The place looks like a cafeteria though. If you can get past that then your good to go.
If you were to go anywhere else you wouldn't experience such good taste at the same price
