The ONLY problem we had was the elevator wasn't working. Our walk up was taxing as one of us has a surgically repaired knee, and the other of us will need their knees surgically repaired. To our delight we were allowed to ride the service elevator down.

Great restaurant. I have been 3 times and it might be the nicest place to eat in Burlington. Good view of the Mississippi River/ bridge and downtown area. It is located on the fourth floor.

We went for our Anniversary and were not disappointed. We get there early enough to use their 2 for 1 drinks. This time we also selected from their 2 for 32.00 menu. I keep forgetting how much food you get.

We love Martinis! The food is always amazing. My favorite place to eat out! I called on Tuesday to make a reservation for 8 people Saturday night. They were booked, they claimed to not have room for 8 or 2 groups of 4 ( anytime Saturday before 8:30) I hung up the phone and booked two groups of 4 people at 5:30 for Saturday night using opentable. ( opentable showed all times Available) This is the second time this has happened. I don’t know if the person answering the phone doesn’t know what’s going on or doesn’t want to be busy but we got there at 5:10 and they had tons of open tables! Kind of sad, if I didn’t know we could book online we would of gone somewhere else! They would of missed out on probably close to a $500 bill (between all of us).

We live three hours away, but visit Burlington once a month or so. We don't always get to Martini's on each visit, but try to get there for special occasions. We've always had a great experience there. Their birthday club special dessert with the sparkler makes the celebration very festive.

Great place to eat on special occasions. We celebrated my wife's birthday, it was a beautiful view from our table, overlooking the river. The city lights were astounding reflecting off the river. The service was excellent the waiter was back to the table to refresh our drinks and to make sure our meal was satisfactory for us. The food was delicious and the waiter was making sure everything was fixed according to our wishes, as my wife has a dairy allergy he made a few trips back to the kitchen to be certain that was no dairy in any of her preferred dishes. We will definitely be returning here on special occasions.

We have been several times before and loved it. this time it was good but not as good as previous times, not to say it was bad. we were seated in the bar area and a spot light shined in my eyes all night. we usually had tables near a window, with a view. service was a bit slow, but friendly. there were a lot of large parties that night, so perhaps it was just an off night. we will go back.

Have dined all over the world and it is amazing that Burlington Iowa has a dining experience with a view like Martini's. The fall color along the Mississippi and the sunsets are wonderful - and the food always keeps pace. With this I can stay home and save the airfare.

I think they need some more lighting. We had a light right above our table but a couple tables over a lady had to use the flash light on her phone just to read her bill because it was So dark. Otherwise the steak was amazing! Everything we ordered was delicious!

What they did well, they did very well (Scallops, Calamari, Seafood Risotto). What the failed on, they likewise failed spectacularly (Salmon, Crab Cake, Fried Shrimp, Caesar Salad). The sear on the Salmon and crab cake was flat out burnt and it ruined the taste of both. The Shrimp was tasteless and over cooked. The Caesar was limp and the dressing was very mild and lacked that signature Caesar kick.
To end this on a positive note, our server was absolutely fantastic.
