About

Martini's is a great local choice for a quick and delicious lunch, after work cocktails, a casual dinner or late night dining...in an atmosphere of cosmopolitan style. Enjoy the new 70 seat patio and sports action on the TVs while partaking in a beverage list that boasts crafted cocktails, extensive wine list and 20 craft beers on tap. Martinis is not all about the cocktails though, the kitchen team has prepared an inspired menu featuring an extensive selection of appetizers for sharing, burger, beef dip, steaks and more. Cheers!

We had a dinner, nothing fancy about the experience. A little disappointed with the restaurant: it is becoming quite casual... there isn’t an upscale feeling about the restaurant anymore. Please bring back a 5 star experience!!

Amazing as usual! We go to the Charchoal very often and have never had a bad experience or less than perfect food and service. My favourite restaurant for almost 30 years!! Love the new reno too.

We couldn’t wait to see the renovations, although the new bar area was really great, we were stuck in the same old worse table in the place. Same table as last time. That way too small half circle booth. I told the hostess I hated that table and she just smiled and walked away. Our waitress Carling was great! Very personable! I ordered the ribs which I had many times before. Mashed potatoes are amazing as always. I was disappointed in the ribs this time. There were a 3 bone piece that was so fatty I couldn’t eat it. My husband had the strip loin steak, he said he had better other places. To pay $120 before tip for a meal without apps or dessert we thought it was a big disappointment. Plus paying that much for a meal and don’t even get complimentary bread or chips...... we’ll be taking a break from here.

We have done Martini’s two years in a row for new year ‘s eve. At the risk of making it impossible to get a reservation next year I have to say they do a very good job. The menu is superb with good choices. The portions are great. The food is well prepared and comes in a timely manner. As always the staff is great! Adequate parking and they even had an escort with an umbrella to get passengers to and from the door in the rain. All I all a great place for a new year celebration!

I grew up in Kitchener and remember the days when it was Charcoal steakhouse and the Lower Deck seafood. When Del Dente first opened I was part of the batch of hires and loved eating at the bar after my shifts. Since I moved away in 1997 the Charcoal restaurants have always been my go to. No one could beat the fresh made Caesar salad dressing and the food at any of the three restaurants was always superb. Sadly my last three visits (one to Charcoal and two to Martinis) have been extremely disappointing. The steak with Caesar salad gave me a cheap thin medium steak when I requested blue and a watery flavourless salad. The tuna salad on prior visit was equally disappointing as was the appetizers I had last Martinis visit. You went from THE place I had to visit to a place I will never eat again and I’ve been coming here my entire life. I have to wonder what Del would say of his son running the place to such sub par standards? The ambiance which is still supreme can not make up for the less than diner quality food you now serve.

Everything was great but the music level was so loud it made conversation difficult. Being it is a restaurant and not a bar we found it annoying and asked for it to be turned down a notch. They thankfully did.
Great place!

My entire family are long-standing customers of the Charcoal group. 40+ years. It’s just not the same anymore. We had two large screen televisions at our table in martinis. The brightness on the one was terrible. We go out to get away from screens so it was rather disappointing. We had to move tables because it was so noisy at the first table we were seated at. The service was outstanding! Our waitress was amazing! The food was ok. My daughter and i both had the rib dinner and felt a little sick afterwards. My son loved the burger. Overall, it was ok.

Our service was awesome. Parts of the food came out cold and missing items on the menu but the manager and server recovered well, however, the replacement items were still not cooked properly. We were compensated with dessert.

Lunch with the Ladies...
2 of my friends joined me for a leisurely lunch - great food, service and ambiance. We had various options from the menu - all of which were wonderful. Would recommend it highly especially for lunch with friends !

All four of us ordered the NY Strip. Riddled with sinew/gristle. Keg beef consistently better at comparable price. Service was the high point. Venue is solid. Beef supplier (Norwich local sourced?) should be dropped. Steaks have been like this for some time now.

We decided on Martini's for our 19th wedding anniversary dinner. Everything was entirely palatable, but nothing was great. The crab cakes were overcooked and bland. The ceasar salad was boring. We both had steak frites and were entirely underwhelmed. The manager came by and offered assistance, but another underwhelming menu option did not seem worth interrupting our dinner for.

Music could have been a little quieter. Hard for people with hearing problems to carry on cconversation. Also a true Caesar salad does NOT have radicchio in it!

We've gone to the Charcoal for special occasions for years. And in the past year we've settle on Martini's because they created an excellent patio area at the back. The food is always excellent and there is a good selection of meat, fish and veggie options. It is trendy but well done. I love the tuna dish and the oysters are great when paired with a draft beer.

Server Reba is truly phenomenal. Food was outstanding. The music was pretty loud which I haven’t noticed before in Martinis - but that may have been to offset the volume of the rowdy table next to us. It was still a great meal and experience! Cant wait to go back!!

Waitress was extremely attentive. Food and drinks arrived in a timely manner. All the food ordered was great; and enjoyed the leftovers the next day as we had filled up on our appetizers. My friend really appreciated the special complimentary birthday treat too. Will be back soon for another friend's 50th!
