    The food we got was excellent. The issue we had was the two things we went for (scallops and salmon) were not available. Disappointed we couldn’t get the selections we wanted. We were there two days prior and got what we wanted and it was delicious.

    Limited food selection, my wife’s steak was under cooked, expensive. Haven’t ate since 4 years ago and felt a decline in everything including staff looking unprofessional. I also requested a window view of the river to celebrate our anniversary and we got a booth. I hopeful w this review there is room for improvement? We’d like to try again. Thanks

    We had an amazing birthday dinner, and our server Olivia was wonderful at making sure we were set with everything she needed. She even went and took a photo of my wife and I together without even prompting, which was extremely kind of her to do when it was such a busy night!

    Sea Bass was oversoaked in butter, and had a "fishy" smell. Likely not very fresh, and covered up with TOO MUCH BUTTER! Brussel Sprouts were raw. Should have known it was going to be a bad night when our waitress dropped the lime from my wife's martini onto the table and tried to put it back on the glass. I suggested she get another lime, and she paused and said, "Good Idea". The bread was hard and she did not bring it out until we got our first course, a rather plain house salad, and my wife got onion soup which the waitress said was part of the entree (however it showed up on my bill as a seperate charge - which managment deducted after my complaint). After first course, our entree came before I had a chance to eat half my salad. We did not see our waitress again for at least a half hour. When she returned, she did apologize for not checking in on us. We were so displeased we did not want to take a chance on desert, but I did order a coffee, and it was rather blah, not what you would expect from a fine dining establishment. So, the food was not very good, the service rather poor, but the price tag was like a Michelin 5 star. Way over priced! The view overlooking the Missisippi River was fabulous, but everything else was mediocre to poor. Will not return.

    I have been wanting to try Martini's for awhile and waited for our 28th wedding anniversary to give it a go. I was not let down! The view was spectacular and ambiance was as well. Our server took her time and made our experience more enjoyable and treated us like welcome family! My filet was seasoned and cooked perfectly as was my wife's meal, salmon. The martinis were very tasty too! We will be back.... but I'm not waiting 28 years!

    Just a few of us wanted to try this restaurant. Everything was very good. The amount of food was plentiful. Most of our group don’t care for spicy foods. So a plain version should be an option. The server brought our food out. But seemed disinterested. She forgot my tea. And between coarse she was nowhere to be found. Not upset. But she needs to be more interactive if she wants better tips.

    This was my birthday dinner and it did not disappoint. My wife and young adult grandkids joined me and that's what made it absolutely fantastic. I keep forgetting how much food is served per entre, and so our meals could not be finished. The bottomless pit known as my grandsons' stomach, had no problem with his appetizer, bread, meal, and dessert. This is a pricey place, but you should know that if you've eaten there before.
