    WAY too loud, couldn't hear employees or even those at my own table. Food was unremarkable for the price. Service was slow. Far better options in town. Will not return.

    At first I thought this was going to be a bad experience, based on the hostess. The manager stepped in and started improving the experience. Our server took our experience over the top. He was energetic and overall amazing.

    First…. Food was good. We got the calamari app which was a lot of arugula… meh amount of calamari but it was tasty. Drinks were good. Main meal was super delish. Bread… first round had hair in it. Second round… no hair. When we got there we had to wait a while for someone to give us waters and drinks. The manager ended up getting us waters. A random waiter ask for drinks and after that our real waiter asked for drinks. Would I go back? Mmmmm idk. Maybe? For what you pay I’m expecting top of the line service. I got mediocre.

    Seated promptly. Nice round table but next to bar. Server was great. Did not have the wine we ordered but subbed nicer bottle. Food very good though not traditional Italian. Restaurant was very noisy, difficult to converse. Everything is a la carte, making things more expensive. Generally very good, would return.

    We came for our annual anniversary dinner and the lamb papradelle which did not disappoint. The biggest problem with the meal was it took 30 minutes from the time our salad plates were cleared to receive our entree. We could see the kitchen from our seats and they were very steady and the restaurant was busy, however in all of that time our server did not come to our table to explain the delay, asked us if we wanted anything else to drink, never saw her until she delivered the food and all she said was “a lot of parties ordered at once”. It seemed as though our server was friendly at the start of the meal and then became a bit surly. Our reservation stated it was our anniversary and we had gifts on the table but nothing was done to acknowledge it. Usually we get a small dessert to share, but nothing. We don’t come for the free dessert, we just think it’s a nice gesture. It was our 40th anniversary and we of course were expecting the same level of service and unfortunately it was the worst experience have had at Martini. We hope it was just a bad night and look forward to another visit.

    I have never dined at Martinis and Cameron’s Bistro has always been my go to restaurant. I went because my favorite Cameron manager, Keith, is now at Martinis and I missed him. As per his style, I was well taken care of. The food was excellent as was the service. What a wonderful experience!

    We went to this restaurant a second during our 5 day trip because we enjoyed it so much the first time. We had also been there 6 years ago. The service is friendly and efficient and the food is delicious. We were happy they accommodate splitting menu items so we each could share and enjoy various courses without overstuffing ourselves. They even split the items on the separate bills for us which was very much appreciated.

    My wife and I came here for our 1 year wedding anniversary. From the pre-dinner drinks to the entire coursed meal, everything was amazing. Our bartender at the start was amazing and made some of the tastiest cocktails we’ve ever had, I forget his name but he had a beard and tied back dark hair I believe. The front of house staff was very kind and welcoming. And last but not least, our server Melissa was amazing and made our experience wonderful throughout the night. We cannot wait to come back sometime soon. Thank you!!

    I had been looking forward to this dining experience all year. I spoke so highly to my companions about this restaurant. Unfortunately the server and the kitchen let us down tremendously. The server was extremely inattentive and disappeared for twenty minutes at a time. Our food quality was extremely disappointing. I had risotto which I have had several times before without issue. Unfortunately this time it was so over cooked it was inedible. The rest of the food was subpar at best but my companions were to embarrass to mention it. All in all I have decided this was my last meal at this establishment because not one manager nor person cared to address this nor talk with us at all.

    The food was very well prepared. The value for your money was middle range and very affordable. The service was always attentive , polite, mannerly, and knowledgeable about the dishes I asked about for my meal. I was greeted by smiles & cheerfulness and the overall attitude was one of welcome. I would say that this restaurant really understands the importance of excellent hospitality. The dishes were not only well prepared, they are unique, very tasty & flavorful, and I would say, classy.
