This used to be one of my favorites when everything else is busy. I think this was my 5th time coming. Service was slow even with a fairly empty restaurant. We got the Sea Bass and it was not fresh....

Amazing food, great ambiance. Service was poor. After our food came out, we never saw our waiter again. He didn’t refill our drinks- not once. We all need refills on both water and drinks.

I felt welcome when when we arrived. We had a lovely table by a window. Our waitress was so nice. We spilt some water on the table. The waitress quickly cleaned it up, no shamming. I told our waitress we were going to the Nutcracker at 7pm. She served our delicious food very efficiently with a smile. I highly recommend Martine’s for any Holiday dining. Or for any occasion. Thank You

It was just a great experience from the moment we walked in until we left. The service was perfect our waitress was helpful but not intrusive. We tried a number of the small plates and they were all delicious. We love Martine’s for its ambience and we weren’t disappointed. The noise level was low so we could actually hear each other even though it was a group of 10.

We had tickets that evening at the Eccles Theater and wanted a great meal before hand.

The ambiance, the food, the personality and knowledge of the server all made for an awesome dining experience.

Martine Cafe is a hidden gem. With a wonderfully varied and limited menu, Martine delivers. The food was exceptional with portions that are appropriate.
The atmosphere is very nice and is definitely a place where one can enjoy a meal with friends, a business dinner or a romantic dinner.
Service was right on target.

The food and service are usually really good, but this time our food orders were a little mixed up. It was still good, however. Always enjoy going to Martine Café.

Went for Dine-o-round. Hadn't been to Martine in years and didn't disappoint. Actually better than what I remember. One of the best dinners of the year.

What a lovely experience this was! I have walked past Martine for years, but this was my first time in. The service was exquisite (that Carlos is a gem) and the meal was outstanding. Martine is a Salt Lake City treasure.

Service was excellent. Knowledgeable, experienced server was courteous, attentive, but not overbearing or obnoxious. Food was great, albeit a little strong (we got salads, and they were delicious, but powerful). Overall a great experience. We'd definitely go back.

The FOOD is the star at Martine. It's absolutely delicious! The service at our first visit was outstanding. The service at our second visit was lacking - not what I expect for fine dining.

Terrible food. Very nice staff. We won’t be back. I wonder what is going trough the chef’s head when a simple appetizer consisting of brussel sprouts has been rendered unedible. Mine were soaking in caper juice from the jar that shot my blood pressure up. It was listed under appetizer section not under the soup. My husband’s roasted beets were terrible as well. No flavor, served ice cold, not worthy of another bite. Such a travesty, when they seemed to have the nicest staff, both, the hostess and our server Carlos, were wonderful and softened the way we felt about this place after the dinner. We did not have any entrees, because the apetizers scared us away.

Martine has excellent food, excellent service, and an excellent environment. It's in a perfect location for dinner before a downtown show or time out with friends. We love it!
