The Prix Fixe Menu was very nice, but we wished they had some a la carte items available as well.
We don’t eat dessert, so we felt we were paying for things we did not want.

We have eaten here many times before shows without any problems. The food is always good, the servers friendly and efficient. This past time however, despite the fact that it was NOT crowded it took a long time to get our food and we JUST made show time.

The food was pre-made and bland. Not worth the money. A place like this should serve much better quality food with much better choices. We won't be dining there again. Which is a shame because we attend many shows at the Broward Center, so it's very convenient.

The quality of the food was poor. We mentioned it to our server, the manager came over and agreed. Stated she "told the chef yesterday that they should not plate the prosciutto early". Why would you say this to a customer? It needed to be fixed, we did not need an opinion. There was no offer to fix it, or compensate us. The service was so slow we were late to the theater. Is 90 minutes note enough time to eat a pre-fix menu?

As always it is a pleasure to dine at Marti's New River Bistro. My cousin and I had lunch their before the show this past Saturday. We had a lovely time and the food was delicious. Our server, Christopher, was very good and a pleasure. Only one comment, we ordered Eggs Benedict and they came out and looked beautiful and on the plate there was this little tiny pile of what I believed to be potatoes that were so dark and cut so tiny and the portion so tiny they should not have bothered putting it on the plate at all.

Very nice presentation. However, the fish that I had was dry and was not adequately described by the server.

Will try again!

The food is good, and the servers are equally good. And the place is very beautiful: simple, clean and a view of the Intracoastal. Love dining there before Broward Center performances. Right on the premises. Wish it were easier to get into! Always full on performance nights. I had the Monk fish entree, and it was very tasty.

great place to eat before the theater. It's an easy walk thru the tunnel right before the show starts, you can even take your wine with you.

This little gem of a restaurant is a wonderful way to start an evening at the theater. Beginning with our table with a view of the water, the service and the food, and the short "tunnel" that led to the theater, the entire experience was wonderful. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I enjoyed our Easter Sunday brunch at Marti's Bistro with a fabulous view of the River. The prix fixe menu options though limited, were very good, pleasing us both with our individual choices. A luscious Mimosa was the perfect complement. The noise level was minimal and the ambiance was very relaxed. Both Sarah, the Manager and John, our waiter provided excellent customer service making us feel welcome as always.

Had been previously when first opened and always suspect when delivering price fixed before theater menus but clearly the chef has changed since I was there last. A clever Asian turn on Matzah Ball soup which was delicious. A half chicken stuffed with risotto - savory. Short Rib with wonderfully but lightly spiced Asian brown noodles - simply mouth watering with a side of tri-sliced spring roll added a nice palette cleanser for the more sweet and savory sauce on the short rib. Waiter was eager to please.

Definitely going back!

I have eaten brunch at Marti's on several occasions but have never enjoyed a dinner there. After reading mixed reviews about the quality and variety of food served at dinner I decided to take a chance with a pre-show reservation and am happy I did. The service was excellent, the choice of appetizers and main courses was good and the quality of the food that came out of the kitchen was excellent. Four of us chose 3 appetizers - eggplant, salad and charcuterie board - and all were delicious; for the main course we all chose the short ribs and again, they were very tasty. I would highly recommend dining at Marti's for brunch and/or dinner!

We attended a Sunday brunch, which we have in the past. The menu is limited to 5 choices. I ordered the eggs benedict and asked for soft cooked eggs, which they almost were. The biggest problem was the extremely rude waitress. she interacted exclusively with my husband while completely ignoring me. With that type of service, I can eat somewhere else.

The eggplant appetizer was amazing. The chicken entree two of us had was not very good and I did not eat mine. They were both dry and one was not hot. The ambiance was nice but we were seated at a table with no view which was a big disappointment.

The food was fine and a good deal for a pre-theatre meal. The best part was our server, Zeke. He was terrific and added to our enjoyment of the evening. We will continue to go to Marti’s before the show; you can’t beat the convenience.
