Marston's Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
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!
Hard to find, in the back of the parking lot…poor signage..We expected a romantic spot but found more of a denny's atmosphere. The waiter was attentive, for a minute and then it was not so much…asked for a salad without nuts (due to allergy), got one with nuts..limited water visits, although it seemed to be overstaffed…lots of attention to the tables buying drinks…(overpriced wine)…
We were a group of 5 who used to work together in Valencia. We decided to meet for dinner and since none of them had heard of Marston's, I suggested we go there. The service was great!! We were shown to our table, menus presented immediately, drinks provided, etc. Our server was very attentive and answered all the questions our group had regarding the menu, etc.
I had the orange CA salad -- my only disappointment was that the bread served with the salad was not the cheese popovers that I had my first visit at lunch! However, the server said she'd check in the kitchen to see if there were any left. She actually came back to the table to say they were all gone.
I live in Northridge, but would definitely return to visit Marston's!!
We took my sister and her family here for brunch before heading back to the Bay Area. The food was okay but the service was terrible!!! The server took a very long time to take our orders, our food took even longer to get on us, she never checked on us, and we had to ask for refills on water!!! They even charged us the 18% gratuity with terrible service. My sister did not like her chicken sandwich that much. She said that the chicken at Carl's Jr. had more flavor and tasted better! I would not recommend this place.
If you want good food with a gourmet flare, than Marston's is for you. We had a Sunday brunch with friends out on the patio and it was so relaxing and nice. The staff at Marston's are friendly and courteous! I had a pulled pork benedict that was divine, Chicken cilantro sausage was also very tasty,The presentation on the food is outstanding, as they do many "fine, little touches". We also enjoyed a spicy Bloody Mary which was one of the best I have had. This restaurant also took reservations through "Open Table", which in our town is a HUGE plus! I am so happy to have found this restaurant in our valley and look forward to many happy, yummy meals here.
