    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.

    We took a business group of 9 people. The service was excellent and all the dishes were outstanding. The server took very good care of us, making suggestions for appetizers to share and menu items we could order 1/2 when we couldn't decide what to order. It was quite loud, though, to not the greatest for a deep conversation.

    The service at Martini's was absolutely incredible. One of the servers knocked my fiancé's wine glass and the manager came and brought us a whole new bottle of wine. Several employees checked on us even though it was a minor mistake but we greatly appreciated it. The food was amazing as always but we were extremely impressed by the service and employees.

    We loved Modern Martini! We drove over from Dayton for dinner. We had not been there for several years. The Caesar salad, the tuna tartare, the butternut squash pasta, the Osso buco, the veal martini and the torte cake were all delicious. The server was excellent. Linda made sure everything was perfect. Thanks for a great evening!
