    I have wanted to try this place for longer than it was Martinsville Tavern, but a little further than our usual places. Really happy we made it. The food was outstanding, the ambiance was both quaint and trendy. Our server could not have been nicer or more efficient. The price was so reasonable we had to double check the bill. We will definitely be back.

    Second time there, sat in the greenhouse type room, they had live music and it was the perfect level where you could hear it but didn’t have to yell to talk to someone at your table, the food was amazing (sushi pizza is always a must) and everything from start to finish was top shelf, I have returned and I will return again one of the best restaurants in the area

    We clearly picked a poor venue for a family celebration. They did not have the table we reserved several months ago ready. And even then they tried to shove us next to a loud musician. When we said the cramped corner wouldn’t work, they crammed us into another even more cramped space. Don’t bother ordering from the wine list - they readily admit it’s out of date and they didn’t have the first several bottles we tried to order. Food was mediocre for 3 of our party, horrible for the other 4. Really bad experience.

    Server didn’t pay much attention to us. The buser was more attentive. Our drinks were empty for several minutes and took half of our meal for our drinks to arrive. A bit overpriced for quality and quantity of food.

    Really quaint and charming but very crowded, very loud and room we were in was soo tight. Was given wrong description of a dinner 2 in our party ordered. Staff started clearing our plates while 1 in our party was still eating. Kinda awkward. Calamari & Branzino were very good.

    Went on Valentine's day so that needs to be taken into account. It was packed so we were sitting literally 3 feet from people on both sides. Impossible to have a private conversation which was awkward. Our server was hardly ever present so we ended up being there for 2.5 hours with very long waits between contact. At one point the hostess had to come over and take our dessert order after we sat there for 15 minutes with the dessert menu. The food was quite good overall and I loved the music they had with a guitar player quietly playing along with some background music. I definitely want to try this place again on a regular night.

    We, very much, liked the way the place looked. The new ownership has made it a place that makes you feel comfortable just being there. The service was exceptional. The wait staff was bright and cheery and had a good understanding of what you expected as a diner. There was a guitarist playing and he was very good. The music he played, was of an "Easy Listening" nature. It was relaxing and fit in perfectly with the ambience of the restaurant. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her dinner of linguini and clam sauce. I had the black linguini and the pasta was cooked perfectly although the dish was served with a sauce which I felt was too thin, even watery, for a pasta dish. I tried it for the first time and came away feeling that I will return to more classical tomato sauce dishes. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience and we will return again.

    As always, we enjoyed our dinner. The entire staff was attentive and very friendly. Our salmon and hangar steak dinners were absolutely delicious! A wonderful addition to the site is the valet parking! (First for us since our last dinner there. Perhaps just on the weekends.) All diners were courteous and seemed to be having a good experience. I highly recommend The Martinsville Tavern!
