Marti's New River Bistro
Probably the best menu so far at Marti's... however they keep insisting on doing the desert flight sampler TO SHARE... for the price they charge and the disappointment they will create they should offer a flight per diner... if that is not possible, offer the same deserts in full size, but a la carte like the other courses. It is always a fight with a couple to share a small pot... plus when it is two friends dining, why would I want to share saliva with a friend?
Service was great. Our waiter was ver personable. The food was good... not great. The atmosphere was nice... good view of the river. The wine prices were very reasonable. Would definitely go back if we have a show at the Broward Performing Arts Center.
Great food and service. Very convenient for pre-show dining!
What wonderful food and service and view !!! Fantanstic
great way to spend time and enjoy a GREAT meal before a show!!!
I really think that Marti’s Bistro is more of a catering service than restaurant. It is convenient when one has an event at the Broward Center but restaurant is only open when there is an event.
There is a limited price -fixe menu that has lots of descriptive verbiage which does not follow through with just mediocre food.
I ordered beef Oslo Buco which is a misnomer to begin with. It bore no resemblance to real veal Oslo buco and really should have been called beef shanks In a not Oslo buco sauce. Also extremely disappointed in the shareable desserts. Not everyone wants to put spoons in same little jar of.hard to tell what one is eating desserts.
Joseph was a great server. The hostess staff very welcoming. Food was fantastic. Just wish there was a dessert option.
The food is always terrible, super high sodium and no healthy choices. The only reason to go is the convenience to the theater
We are vegan and always loved the vegan options. However, the vegan appetizer was eliminated and now NO vegan appetizer option. What happened?
Service and vegan entree was stellar.
Please get a vegan appetizer back on the menu!
Always a delightful venue for pre-theatre, opera, ballet at the Broward Center! Wonderful menu changes seasonally and the 3 course Prix Fixe is a good value. Always very professional attentive service coupled with a drop dead New River waterfront view that can't be beat makes for a perfect relaxed start to an exciting evening with the arts!
This was our first experience with Marti’s and we loved it. Pre-fix pre theater menu was wonderful. Our waiter, Joseph, was great. This will become our pre-theater go to place. Love it!!!!
we were a party of 4 and 3 of the 4 dishes were almost uneatable. The rice and vegetable that came with the fish of the day, salmon, had absolutely no taste and was dry. The chicken dish was just so so. On a limited menu that they feature all dishes must be in the mainstream and not for the Nouveau Cusine customer.
The only saving grace for this restaurant is that it is located directly with the Broward Center.
We dined at Marti's New River Bistro before a show and it was a nice surprise. Food was very good, service was excellent, will return.
Loved the new menu! Had delicious poblano soup and shrimp and grits!!! Such a beautiful restaurant with great service and a great view of the river!!
The food was luke warm but good and the quiche was rather dry. However, I would return.
Joseph was a great attentive server. We ordered based upon his recommendations. We loved the smoked poblano soup so much I want to try to replicate it at home. Would love their recipe as it was amazing. Thanks for a lovely brunch before the show.
New items on the menu were nice to see. Wish they made shrimp with bacon grits without the bacon as another non-meat option. Always a nice treat before the play.
This was my first time at Marti’s. My friend and I were seeing a show and decided to stay close to the theater so we could enjoy good food, the river, and catch up. Our server was wonderful. She was attentive and always had a smile. The drink from the bar was good. The menu is set for the night and offered unique choices of everything from the appetizers to dessert. The appetizer was good, a fried kimchi flavored rice ball. The people at the table next to us said the shrimp Bloody Mary was uneventful. Flat. Bland. The biggest disappointment was the main course, which was to be butternut squash, farro and risotto. My dish did not have any butternut squash, only a chunk of a hollowed our skins filled with farro. The farro/risotto was dry and flavorless. Risotto is creamy, no? I tried to scrape out squash from the skin, but it was hard-not cooked. $70 for one person is a lot of money to be this disappointed. We won’t be going back.
Outstanding service provided by our waiter Joseph. Entire staff was welcoming. Food was creative and delicious. Wonderful time.
Great food lovely atmosphere great service! Will definitely return
Love this place! Excellent food and great service. The view is wonderful.
Staff is very accommodating! Service is excellent! Food is fabulous! Nice ambiance! I highly recommend Marti's .
New menu should be thrown out.
Servers should go out with the menu!
Disappointing on every level.....ruined our night out.
Dinner was surprisingly good , and the service was outstanding. We were celebrating our anniversary and noted that on our reservation. Didn’t remember that until writing this review. No acknowledgement of it being a special occasion.
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.
Excellent place to dine a hen attending events at the BCPA.
Brunch was outstanding and the menu choices and portions were perfect for the occasion.
Good food and wonderful service
The best pre-theatre dinner we have had since we have been going to Broward Center. The food was excellent and the service outstanding!
Great place for dinner before the theater! Great service and beautiful views
Great if you are going to the Broward Center for a show.
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?
Very nice food. Excellent service and views.
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.
Extremely convenient for shows at the Broward Center.
Very nice presentation. However, the fish that I had was dry and was not adequately described by the server.
Will try again!
Good menu selection. Food was good and the presentation was excellent. A bit pricey for the area. Service was lovely
Great food, ambiance and service too. Joseph was super!
