I’m afraid this will be our last visit to Martoranos AC. We’ve had such good experiences with the FL location but can’t say the same for AC. Our favorite dish is the eggplant stack which is $22 but now half the size it used to be. The $48 pasta had 4 medium shrimp and big non uniform chunks of onion. Plus the supposedly cream cognac sauce tasted exactly like diavolo sauce which we aren’t fond of. I don’t mind paying for quality food but this wasn’t.
This is a prime example how a selfish server can ruin the reputation of both Harrahs AC and a good restaurant like Matoranos. We were treated as though we had never been in a restaurant before when in fact I have eaten here at least eight times in the last three months. The three steaks we ordered medium rare (adding red meat) were overcooked. Two asked for different steaks I did not as I lost my appetite. The argument we heard between the server and the kitchen staff revealed that the server ordered the steaks incorrectly. It was all downhill after that. The table was cleared and we had to ask if we could see a desert menu, but were rudely told the server was busy getting a bill. The Manager took off the price of one steak which was polite but we were not looking for that. At the onset I did ask for Digna an outstanding server, but I believe that our server would not relinquish this table. I look forward to Gordon Ramseys steak house and obtain my medium rare steak therein. Unfortunately I will not return to Matoranos.
My Wife Joanne and I Love the food and all the amazing specials that are always changing and delicious. Bravo Steve!
My Children and their Spouses are now avid fans as well.
Food was bland. Got our appetizer quickly (meatball and salad). Then waited 50 minutes to get our cold Sunday sauce (that had no sauce) terrible veal parmigiana and the only thing that was hot was the carbonara and it tasted like nothing even after putting an entire bowl of Parmesan cheese. Our waitress asked twice where our food was and wasn’t even apologetic. We’ve been too so many Italian restaurants and have never written a review before, good or bad. Just honestly wasn’t worth the money. We ran out of there after they took our plates. What a disgrace. My boyfriend and I were really looking forward to going to this restaurant and honestly we will never come back.
Unfortunately, Matarano's has become too big for their own good. We were seated at our table and ordered drinks and appys and they took almost 20 mts. to be served, then the waiter brought our entrees but all the appy dishes were still on the table. Either they were short-handed Sunday nite 2/18 or they don't care they are missing the mark. Will not go back here until I hear it's improved.....ESPECIALLY with Gordon Ramsay taking over The Steakhouse @ Harrah's !!!!!
I have been going to Martorano's since they opened and have never been disappointed. The orechetti with pancetta and cauliflower with bread crumb crusted top was out of this world. I highly recommend that this special become a regular menu item. If you have a chance to try it do yourself a favor and do so.
Service and staff is very friendly and prompt. Make you feel as family.
Poor quality food with fair service. Menu item descriptions were different than meals that arrived. Different ingredients.
Our server was hands down the best server we have ever had. His name was Hillsley ( maybe spelled wrong). I was disappointed with the food but the service was awesome! I saw online that the menu offered a vodka sauce but the menu didn't have that offered. He checked with the cook and she offered to make it special for me. I appreciated the effort but with so many people there, I could imagine it would take away from what she was already making. The food wasn't bad but my substitute meal just left something to be desired. Our local Applebees typically has more of a tasty sauce. The atmosphere was fun, but honestly, the gentleman that waited on us was the best part of the night, else this review would be much lower in stars.
Love the food and ambiance. The only downfall is the noise level. We could not hear our waiter telling us about the specials as it was way too noisy
Best service I’ve ever had! Food is delicious!
Wonderful experience. Great ambiance, service and food. Seating is spaced out enough that your meal is private, music selection was very fitting, service and staff was friendly, warm and attentive and the food was amazing. Can't wait to go back again!
Excellent!! Chefs are amazing. Waiters are great. Food is outstanding. Have been there 5 times and will def return again. Awesome
Service was poor
Started with Fried Mozzarella-Good. Followed by Pappardelle with Mushrooms-Very Good. I had the Veal Marsala and my wife had the Center Cut Pork Chop. Both Very good/Excellent. To full for dessert. Delicious dinner with excellent service.
Waiters were pushy and unfriendly. Weren’t attentive and we did not feel welcomed at all. Would never eat at restaurant in the future.
Great Food Great Service
Way too noisy....music too loud! Great staff and food!!
We were so impressed by this place ! Our new fav spot in AC!
Let me say I manage a small Hotel with a Restaurant on site which has great food and even better value. This dinner was way overpriced. Food is just good, if that. Ambiance is a bit confusing with movies playing around the restaurant and music (All different varieties) on as well. I spent most of the dinner distracted. Oh well . I won on the Wheel of Fortune machine afterwards so the night ended on a high note!
Being Italian and virtually eatten in every Italian restaurant from Philly to AC i had to try this place. The staff professional but warm and friendly. The food is second to none ! From first bite you taste the freshnesss and every ingredient pops out. Gnoochi was home made and firm not mushy. The clams and macaroni was the best ive ever had. The calamari was fried to perfection. Last but not least i have eatten meatballs in my life. As a true Italian would say "nothing beats my mothers meatballs". Well, Steven Marturano knocked it out of the park ! I will be back very soon!
