    We went to Marti’s before a concert. The location is perfect, both on the water and right at the theater. The food was good, considering it being a prix fixe menu. We were not expecting a gourmet meal, but the restaurant exceeded our expectations. When we will be attending the theater next time we will definitely be back. The restaurant is perfect for pre-theater dining.

    The hostess was friendly and took me immediately to a great spot at the bar. The bartender and handsome waiter were very thoughtful, welcoming, and efficient. My espresso martini was perfectly made. The two appetizers were very tasty and well presented. It was a great experience before going to the Fort Lauderdale Gay orchestra concert.

    Everything about this place is amazing! The food is delicious. I had the lamb tagine and my guest had lobster ravioli and both were perfect. I have to really shout out my appetizer…Mongolian Beef Satay, served on skewers and covered with sesame seeds. Amazing! The service is attentive and very pleasant. And the view of yachts passing on the New River is just impossible to match.

    The restaurant is very nice and very convenient to theater. It is pricey, but it is there for the theatre I guess it has limited hours. Thus they need to charge more. We have been there several times and always enjoyed

    The vegetables with the filet were raw. The lamb, while tender, lacked more seasoning. Special dessert lemon/blueberry cake was very dry. Wine delicious and a great pour! Waiter great. And what a convenient view and location for the theater. Caesar salad outstanding!

    This was my fifth visit to this establishment pre-theatre at Broward and featured the “new menu.” The bread seems heated in the microwave. At first it’s warm but quickly turns rubbery. I would rather have the pre-fixe meal consist of main course and dessert. That combo would also work better for people who bring children. My granddaughter is not able to eat an appetizer and main and would enjoy a main and dessert instead. The appetizers are mostly too hearty to then be expected to eat a main. The only smallish appetizer is the soup—which used to be a soothing Butternut Squash. That has been changed to a very zippy tomato based chunky vegetable soup that mimicked my drink—a Bloody Mary. It was too much of the same taste so after two bites of soup, I pushed it aside. My main was a lovely omelet with bacon (perfectly cooked) and so-so packaged potatoes. My guest had a burger and fries. She ate half. The desserts looked tasty but we were both full. We arrived at 11am and finished at 12:17pm. Our show started at 1pm. Very handy location.

    We went before a concert. Arrived at 6 and we were not served our main course until 7:10. Our concert started at 7:30! Dessert was a fiasco. They ran out of the apple blossom and then served it at 7:25 , still frozen. Next time, we eat at home. It was a terrible experience.

    Great for before theatre. Right at theatre. No hassle parking. Too noisy. Never understand why restaurants don’t damper noise. Trend is worse and worse and therefore we go out less and less. The fact that OpenTable ask s about noise indicates it is an issue.
