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 were seated immediately to the type of area that we asked for. Our server Sam was attentive to our needs at all the right times. Overall it was an enjoyable lunch on a Friday. The 'happy birthday' dessert was a surprise and welcomed. I also appreciated and enjoyed the type of music that was playing that was not gaudy or loud. Thank you

Service was excellent. Wine is waayyyy too expensive for what you get. Seriously, $18 for an 8-ounce glass of mediocre wine. I would pay that amount at Easy Pour to get quality wine. My pasta had too much pasta, and not enough chicken, nor squash. I think there were 3 chunks of butternut squash, which was the feature of the dish. Sauce was heavy. I suggest a lighter sauce with a little more flavour than cream.

Our server, Sydney, was efficient, friendly, and very knowledgeable. Our food, served in a timely manner, was delicious and well presented. We enjoy the access to both menus (Martini's and Charcoal's) to suit everyone's needs and appetite. It's our go-to restaurant every time we come to the Kitchener-Waterloo region.

The occasion was Valentines dinner and the evening was perfect!
There was a special menu with many options to choose from. I had the Caesar salad with shaved parm, crisp bacon, homemade croutons and a light dressing. It was delicious. My husband had chicken bites lightly battered with a wonderful sweet and spicy sauce.
There were choux pastry puffs with a savory spread served instead of bread. Very nice!
I had braised ribs, half done in an apple hickory sauce and the and other half done in traditional bbq sauce . They were cooked to a fall off the bone perfection and served with crisp fries.. delicious. My husband had the beef tenderloin. It was perfectly cooked and topped with a good dollop of a wonderful mushroom garlic butter. This was served with crisp fries and wonderful grilled vegetables. Dessert was a generous size key lime tart topped with meringue and a scoop of homemade coconut ice was placed along side. Fresh coffee accompanied the dessert.The meal was perfection plus! The service was excellent and the atmosphere very pleasant. A wonderful memorable meal.

Enjoyed a great meal after a stressful day! Service was a little slow when it came time to pay so we asked someone else. I ordered a 5oz cave spring and was charged for an 8. To be honest I wasn’t sure if I got 8 or not because I didn’t pay attention till I noticed the price on the bill. I just paid it!

Open Table was a great way to make a reservation, but I would like to request our favorite table number, however the "app" did not allow us to do that.... As a result we were not thrilled with the table that was assigned to us.
Food was excellent, but with a four course meal, no one course should be as large as the amount of bruschetta bread that made up the second course. Two or at most three pieces would have been more appropriate than 4.

We were disappointed with a previous large family celebration dinner at the Charcoal several months ago, but thought we’d give Martinis a try for our family’s Christmas Eve dinner. The server’s very serious attitude and lack of personality presented as if she was not wanting to work. She warmed up a bit by the end of the meal, but this did make it awkward to try to enjoy a festive evening out when we felt we were a burden. My husband’s steak was excellent which he was relieved about considering many of us had very disappointing prime rib and steak dinners last time. Our kids enjoyed their fish and chips and kid’s burger although my youngest never received the cracker/fruit appetizer. My crab and shrimp spaghetti was ok. There was ample shrimp, but the spinach leaves on top with a sprinkling of crab seemed to have sat under a heat lamp as the spinach and crab were all dried out and crunchy-disappointing. We had to ask the server to remove the charge for our son’s drink as it was to be included in his kid’s meal. When I mentioned he never received the appetizer plate, she didn’t respond. Unfortunately, this is twice in a row that we’ve been disappointed with what should be an upper scale dining experience. We’ve had better meals and a more enjoyable experience at other local establishments and will find it difficult to recommend or return anytime soon. We used to love coming to the Charcoal/Martinis. It’s been disappointing.

Food and service was good. Loved the onion rings with dill dipping sauce and was surprised by the free chips and dip served early. My only disappointment was the seating. The little booths were too small to be comfortable and those of us leaving middle age behind shouldn't be take to seats on the high bar-style tables. It's not comfortable.

This time around was a huge miss. Food was not good. Pad Thai did not taste the same. Prime rib was over cooked. Waldorf salad way too much dressing. Our waitress was very unatentive...sat for 25min after meal and was not offered coffee or dessert until then.
Probably won't go back. This has been the 2nd time this year we have had a bad experience.

Ordered rack of ribs to go with just fries.

Came with Apple which we specifically asked not to have.

Ribs came on top of fries. So fries were completely soggy.

Paid 29.50 plus tax and tip. Not happy.
