Great Salmon special and the martini's are always fun served in a shaker
This location has both charm and terrific food.
The perfect dinner out. Outstanding service, perfectly cooked food as I’d do it at home, generous glass of wine, gracious attention to a special request, and inviting presentation. Rare value for money in the greater Boulder area. Looking forward to dinner at Martini’s.
Great food and of course the best martinis
Food was excellent and our waitress Savanna was so friendly and attentive. The owner has always come to the table to see if everything is ok - really like that personal touch!
Cannot wait to sit outside in the fabulous patio area!
My husband and I have been coming here for Easter brunch for 8 years. We won't be going back.
We are a party of only two, and the table they sat us at was squished between two other tables. Clearly they were packing them in. When our server came to take our drink order, I requested to be moved to the table behind us. The waiter said, "This table??? Well this is a table for three people. Don't you like this table?" I said, "No." Then he said, "Well there isn't anything I can do for you." Wow. And I literally said that out loud to him. He didn't even check to see if there was maybe another two-top table in the restaurant that he could move us to. No effort put forth whatsoever. He handled that terribly. I probably should have called a manager over, but I didn't. I wish I remembered what his name was so I could include it here. We've had him as a server before, and I remember him as being a pompous jerk then, too. One last comment, he didn't even tell us it was OK to go on up to the buffet and enjoy. He just brought the drinks and left. We sat there for awhile then said to each other, do you think we can go get food now?????
Now, let me talk about the food. We are aware that there is new management - we've been coming here for 8 years on and off for various things, so we are aware of the history of this place. But, the Easter brunch buffet has been sadly depleted. This meal was not worth $35. I'm not sure if this meal was even worth $20.
We chose to celebrate the Easter holiday at Martinis Bistro, but between how this occurrence started out with the server acting the way he did, to the sad buffet, we won't be coming back. Maybe ever.
We had the Easter buffet meal at Martini’s Bistro.
Our service was outstanding, and our blonde waitress was extra attentive, very kind to us, and we really enjoyed getting out of the house!
The food was sadly just ok- a lot of it was unfortunately cold- the scrambled eggs, the green beans, the ham, the cheese blitz. $35 seemed overly expensive for a cold buffet with a fairly “basic” menu. We were also seated right by the start of the buffet so had a lot of interruptions with all the noise and clanging of people entering the line. We enjoy going to Martini’s Bistro and have had excellent food there before, but we will probably skip future buffets.
I've eaten at Martini's for years. It's definitely gone down hill.
On this occasion we were at the restaurant for Sunday brunch. Our last brunch visit was very good - lot's of selections, great, hot, fresh food, and all the things one expects from a 35 dollar a plate brunch.
This visit was just the opposite - very few selections, mediocre food that was cold and under cooked, mediocre service, and a cold dining room. I expected much better - we were in the first seating, so I expected much better food.
The biggest disappointment was the deserts. This place is famous for its deserts. None of them were served at brunch.
And for those that drink, Mimosas and Bloody Mary's were 8
dollars a piece. For an additional $5 you could go to a 4 star restaurant near by for a much better brunch and drink for free
In short, a massive disappointment that left me feeling I wasted my money. I won't be coming back, and couldn't in good conscience recommend Martini's to anyone
Great local dining in Longmont. A real neighborhood gem! Amazing food!!!
I've really enjoyed this place in the past. This time, not so much. We were the first table to arrive for 6:30 reservations and were seated immediately into a largely empty dining room, but did not have a server come by the table for over 10 minutes when we finally received acknowledgement of our presence and water. Our drinks arrived nearly 25 minutes after we were seated.
Our friendly (but obviously overwhelmed server) took our soup/salad order, but not our dinner order, so we ate our first course with menus still sitting on our cramped table. Our two-top was clearly not a priority this evening.
The door to the patio was open (presumably so that servers could move freely between the gathering outside and the kitchen), and we were seated right next to it. That meant that I ate my meal in my down coat to try to stay somewhat warm.
The food was good enough, but the Sea of Angels dish that claims to include "lump crab" had a a sprinkling of micro-flakes of crab meat. There wasn't even enough to have a taste of crab. My partner's crab cake and scallop dish was, according to him, delicious.
I'm disappointed in this experience overall, but hope that if we try again (big if) that we'll be treated to an experience more similar to our previous visits.
Great food and great service! The only impact to the evening was the proximity to a noisy table.
Love this place
Will be back
We hadn’t been there in a year or so. The food wasn’t up to past experiences, but still a good meal.
Just discovered recently and our second time there. A really nice location, atmosphere and a wonderful menu. We particularly enjoy seafood so those options were wonderful. Cozy, not too crazy, intimate and a very nice atmosphere with really good food.
Sent note to Martinis about need for a gluten free and dairy free birthday dessert. Got there and was told usually have a hazelnut torte but not that day. Don’t use open table to make requests as they don’t get read or ignored. Salad was delivered with dressing containing cheese and then dinner was delivered with mashed potatoes also containing dairy despite waiters notes that I have gluten and dairy allergies . A very disappointing birthday dinner and now new concerns that the kitchen does not pay attention to allergy notes. They did comp my Martini for the two mistakes on my salad and dinner and the lack of a birthday dessert. Thank our waiter David for trying to protect me from a trip to the hospital .
Great dinner. This restaurant is our go-to place for out of town guests. I would recommend the fireside room for a quieter dinner. If you go from 3 - 5:30 they have early bird specials on drinks & appetizers. We go and order several appetizers as our dinner. We took our friend who has several food allergies; they were very helpful and prepared the perfect meal for her.
Excellent as usual.
I have been enjoying Martini's for decades! I believe it to be the best restaurant in Longmont! I have never had a bad meal there. The location is terrific, the staff is wonderful and the food and martini's are out of this world!
I love Martini's: the old house in which the restaurant is located, the quality food, the friendliness of the waitstaff, the martini's, the desserts. It's a little on the expensive side but to me, it is well worth it.
Very pleasant experience (again) with good food, friendly staff, nice local restaurant.
We have been here many, many times. The martinis are great. However, the menu has changed some and I am not as excited about it. There is more pasta and such, but nothing unique. I always got the Marco Polo and loved it. The prices have also increased a lot.
Very reliable for a nice atmosphere and good food. Local favorite.
It was very loud in the "Patio" area, and somewhat crowded. We could hear the conversations of tables to both sides of us. On one side was an agreement in progress between spouses we'd rather not be in ear shot of. The wife was chastising the husband rather obtrusively. On the other side was conversation about a Hysterectomy gone bad. These are not topics I'd like to NOT hear about over dinner on Valentines Day.
Granted, the restaurant has little control over what people talk about. However, they do have control over how close the tables are set.
Net... avoid the "Patio" area for special occasions.
The staff was very professional and came to the table at just the right times. Drinks and food were delicious. Can’t wait to go back
We always have a great meal and experience. Impeccable service, creative menus, wine list and cocktails.
Great service, wonderful food and plenty of it. We'll be coming back.
Always a great meal and experience!
Date night with my wife. A very pleasant surprise for a local place my wife and I have wanted to dine at for a while. Now we have a new go-to place for a casual upscale restaurant with great food and service!
Took my wife here on a date night. The food was really tasting. I had the waygu flat iron steak which was so tender it didn't need the steak knife they gave, my butter knife would of been fine. My wife had the Crab cakes and Scallops. Scallops cooked to perfection and crab cakes was very tasty. Definitely recommend this restaurant for a nice occasion!
We came here for our wedding anniversary, service, food and drinks were great!
Food was so-so and service wasn’t great. We never saw a busser - I don’t think they had any? - so our dirty plates and drinks weren’t picked up (our martini glasses and shakers from before dinner we’re still there after dessert) and water was never refilled until we hunted someone down. Overall a disappointment - especially at the price. Need to hire more staff.
We live in Loveland and regularly meet our Boulder friends here as it's a great half-way point. The food is always great, excellent service and delicious martinis. The only complaint is that it's not open too late. We are usually the last folks to leave at 10am. Love this place! Really want to try it in the summer with the gorgeous new outdoor patio.
Great little restaurant in a sea of mediocrity and chain eateries.....
Overall, we had a good experience and will be back. However, it did feel crowded and the tables were very close to one another. This made for a noisier atmosphere which as unfortunate since we specified it was our anniversary and didn’t feel like we could privately visit much. We were also pleased with a majority of what we order for food and drink, but my dish was completely drizzled with the sauce I asked for on the side and didn’t favor the crab cake (taste and consistency).
Superb in all areas! It was a great experience and definitely will be back. The bacon wrapped dates are out of this world good as is all their food!
Lovely food and good service. We really enjoyed the martinis and the meal. This is a neighborhood gem and we will definitely go back.
The food is always excellent and we love going there. The wait staff including the manager is always friendly and interactive.
Excellent food and excellent service. We had never been, but were so glad we went!
Martinis are always good- food was good- service was prompt & attentive
Crab cakes were good on cheese mashed potatoes, scallops were excellent. Mushroom appetizer was very good. Good for seafood in cow country.
Love this place. Always feel welcome and I have never been disappointed with the food or the service.
