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 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.

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.

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.
