We travel to the area 3-4x per year and stay in West Burlington. We always have dinner at Martinis. Consistently good food, wine, and service. We live in St. Louis
And have many great choices to dine, but when we visit west Burlington, Martini’s is our place.

Had a very pleasurable experience and the food was delicious again. Tammy did a fine job with service and took clear advice about the "grit " in one of the scallops. Tuna sushi was very well done!! real tasty!

We had a good table with a view of the river.
Food was good but priced a bit high for the quality. Cesar salad had too much dressing and dressing had an odd flavor. Bread was great and wine was good but was overpriced. Pasta dish was fantastic. NY strip was a good thick cut and had good flavor but was pale in color and overcooked (med vs rare).
The waitress was emotionless and not social at all but was very busy with several tables.
Overall a good place, however.... For the price, my expectations were higher.

Open Table requested if this was for a special occasion and I noted yes, it was for an anniversary. This was either not communicated to the restaurant or they paid no attention to it. Not a big deal but why ask if you don't do something with the information.

We love Martinis! We drive about an hour to come because the food and drinks are amazing! We generally come for a special occasion as the menu is on the pricey side, but so delicious. I highly recommend making a trip. Also the view from the restaurant is so beautiful.

Nice evening - anniversary dinner out. Sat outside. Started off with appetizers and soup. Wife ordered the pork chops and I ordered the New York Strip medium rare. Steak came out medium well and had to be sent back. 2nd time around they got it right. Other than the steak, enjoyed the meal. My wife loved the mango chutney and the chocolate cake!

Was our anniversary, so we were given a nice table with a good view of the river. The service was wonderful and timing of the food coming out was on point. The food itself was good but not spectacular as would be expected for the price. Drinks were very pricey ($50 for 4 spirits).

We celebrated our anniversary with a date at Martini's Grille Friday May 18, 2018. Although we drove 90minutes from the Quad Cities, it was worth it. The view of the bridge and river from our booth was perfect. The food was delicious; the seafood risotto was soupier than I would prefer, but still delicious. Other than that, everything was perfect.

I was very disappointed to find two of my favorite dishes were not longer the same. The calamari is now in strips (not very appealing) and the steak bruchetta which the menu states still has a garlic sauce now has change very much and was actually not very good.

Very nice place, great view of the river, not too crowded. Food was good and was not a long wait at all. Our server was very friendly, prompt, and check on us often but not too often. I have been here several times and plan on going back again. It's not your everyday place, but perfect for special occasions and celebrations or just an evening out.

I got a gift certificate to Martini's Grille and we decided to go there for our 49th wedding anniversary in April. We had never been there before and were pleasantly surprised how busy it was on a Thursday evening when the weather was not that good. The service (very important to me) was terrific and the food was just as good. We will be back when the view might be a little better of the Mississippi River and the trees are green.!!

The noise made the dining experience very unpleasant. We were seated as far away from the river view windows as was possible. We normally are able to see the river when we dine there. The choices for the 2 for 32 meal have been limited from what we used to order. Ribs and pork chops used to be good selections. We have bought our sons and their wives the $100 gift certificates for Christmas and anniversary gifts the last several years. We will have to reconsider doing that again.

Two of us took my father to Martini's for his birthday. One of us ordered the ribs which had a good flavor and were well done, although there was extra "gristle". Another ordered chicken penne pasta and 2 vegetables for sides. And, the other ordered four large shrimp, which the diner raved about. We appreciated the low noise level since 2 of the diners use hearing aids that don't work well in loud restaurants. We came from out of town, been here before, and will return again.

We found everyone to be exceptionally friendly and concerned that we were having a good experience. Elegant surroundings with beautiful view. I would like to see more vegetarian options although our server really helped with how to make selections vegetarian. Also some vegan options would be nice. Desserts were great but have you also thought about making some of the flaming desserts? I love those and I think they would be perfect in your setting. Anyway, we plan to return regularly. Glad we found you.

For the money I thought u would have more than one scallop and one shrimp on my seafood plate. The presentation was beautiful, however I was still hungry and would have liked more than one shrimp and one scallop in my plate.

I would not recommend getting the sirlion off the 2 for $32.99. We havd tried it 2 different times. The outside is done & inside is bloody & red. Which is fine except it was ordered pink in the middle. They also changed the coating on the chicken lips, which makes the crust hard. They are ok but no our favorite anymore.

The food was great. The service from our waitress was also great. However, when we were at the bar waiting to be seated, the bartender was more interested in his phone than waiting on us. Phones should not be allowed while working.

Disappointed that only groups of 4 or more get a slice of birthday cake. It also seemed groups of 4 or more were treated "better" ... We just wanted a quiet romantic birthday celebration. I guess next time we have to bring the whole gang so we fit in.
