John R was our server and he was amazing! I have to avoid vegetable/seed oils, and typically this is hard at restaurants, as they are in so many things. However, at Martini, what really impressed me was not only were they accommodating, they told me to order what I'd like and they would make it work -- they pretty much re-did their menu to support my dietary restrictions. I am usually am just happy if they tell me they have 1 or 2 options, but the fact that they said they would do whatever they needed to make it work is literally beyond and above what I could have asked for.

From the food to service to ambiance, our anniversary was perfect. Thank you to the chefs who helped to accommodate me, and thank you to John R for such great service!

They have dining in the time of COVID down. It is beautiful and quiet and great service. Food just wasn’t that good. They did accommodate nicely for gluten and dairy free for my husband. But someone forgot to seal the salt shaker lid on or something. My meal was just gross to look at and tasted better than it looked, but would never order again.

Well there was a fly in my food ... and rather the fact that it flew in or was already there the manager seemed to be annoyed or argumentative about it and our waiter barley served us .....I’m really upset about the fact too I feel like we was racially discriminated the way we were treated our waiter was more attentive to the other tables rather than us

Everyone wore a mask, including myself. The food and drinks were highly attended to with education and ease. This is a special occasion place, or a Thursday evening. The tuna tartare and bruschetta were a phenomenal start to the meal.

At first, it appeared to be a clean, inviting, and fun environment for a date night. That quickly changed to a dissatisfying experience. When we sat down, we were greeted by our server and put in our drink order. Everything was fine, and then we put in our appetizer order along with entrees. One we received our appetizers, we never saw our server again. It wasn’t until we finished and stacked our plates that she came back to ask how things were. Our entrees came and they were overcooked and underwhelming. Since it was close to the end of the night we decided not to send them back since it appeared clear that the staff was ending their day. We expected a better experience and better food for the money. Do not plan to return.

The food was amazing. We shared the Arancini then a Caesar salad, a pasta all’s vodka and the filet. We had plenty to take some home too! Joey, our server, was wonderful. He was patient, thoughtful, and made excellent recommendations both with food and wine. Overall it was a great experience. We will be back.

If you're celebrating a special occasion such as an anniversay, please try this place. It's dark but romantic with candle lighting. The service was top notch! The food itself.. Was absolutely delicious! If your not sure what to get by looking at the menu.. Just know you can order half sizes of any of the meals.. We had four meals plus left overs because the portions are more than enough. Thank you for a great anniversary dinner.

The ambiance and energy were great! My wife and I ordered two cocktails, and then shared an appetizer, a salad and an entrée. The appetizer - pulled mozzarella - was over-priced at $17 and although touted as a favorite, was bland and uninspiring. The beets salad was tasty and well prepared, but - even though split between two - was small in quantity for the price. The entrée - braised lamb pasta - was great, well prepared, tasty and ample in quantity. Definitely the highlight of the meal! Even though the restaurant was crowded - it was a Saturday evening - the service was slower than I expected. The waiter was courteous and knowledgeable about the menu. All in all, I would recommend the restaurant to a friend, with perhaps just a different selection of some menu items.

Martini is my favorite of the Cameron Mitchell restaurants. The food is so rich and exquisite. Presentation is amazing. Quality and taste is perfection. The best service around. The dessert is like something out of your imagination. Highly recommend the Tiramisu served in an edible chocolate cup designed to look like a cappuccino. Certainly channeled "Willy Wonka". Absolutely, worth every penny.
