I’ve wanted to try Martinis for years, and finally talked my husband into it for our 28th anniversary! The food was excellent and our waiter, Gage, kept our glasses filled and checked on us several times. We rarely eat at steak houses, and even though it was pricey, we would go again (for a special occasion!). I only gave four stars on the ambience, because while the view was amazing, the windows were very dirty and had cobwebs on the outside. Other than that, is was a nice experience.

Food was good, but I never did get my salad and it was on the Bill. Three different people brought our food! I feel this is confusing for the serve staff.

We had the fish special, but $42 seemed excessive. Although we are lucky to have Martinis in our area!

Not the normal level that Martini's supply. Brand new waiter that was poorly trained and should not have been on his own. Did not know menu and ended up supplying incorrect appetizer because or incorrect menu given to us. New bartender that one drink was poorly made and sent back. Two drinks were not topped off in glass and shorted. Waiter normally would have topped these off without question. Not ours. Planned to have dinners, but were so discouraged we ended up ordering a small pizza and leaving. Most of the problem appeared to be inexperienced staff that is not familiar with menus, service expected by customers, lack of response when asked to check out problems. Went to floor manager, who was also new at that position (former waitress), received a twenty dollar comp for next visit. Worth another try and request a experienced waiter. Just disappointed with the evening.

We had amazing service. The only items I wish could change is you pick your table when reserving. That way you can choose to set by the window if you want.

The service is always exceptional. Tonight the food was not so fantastic. They were out of oysters so we got the calamari- it was bland and tasteless. My seasonal salad had so many taste components going on it was just not great. The flavors of all those things just didn’t go together. I had a sushi roll- one I normally get- and was surprised they weren’t put together well (fell apart) and the size was much smaller than normal. And how many times should it be mentioned that the condiment cups make terrible soy sauce cups??- they’re too tall and narrow.

We love Martinis but getting put in their “overflow” room sucked. Wasn’t the same experience as usual. Kind of disappointing since we had reservations. Hopefully they let us know in advance next time.

Our server Tammy was amazing! She was so friendly and knowledgeable about the entire menu. She went above and beyond to make our dinner special. The food is absolutely wonderful! I highly recommend the king crab jar. And make sure to leave room for dessert. Because the Oreo cheesecake is delicious!

The service wasn't as good as it should have been for this place being fine dining. Prices were wrong when we got our bill, and item upcharges weren't described as upcharges. We grazed, and I about broke some teeth on the plastic fireworks holder that came with the ice cream cake. That didn't seem to matter to the waitress as she shrugged, and explained that that usually comes out with the spent firework, which we had to remove.
