We had a very good meal here, as usual. The waiter was wonderful. The only problem was the noise level. It is often noisy, but this time it was over the top. There was a group of 8 men sitting near us and they’d had a few drinks and were very loud. Everyone else around us quiet, but I could see that they were also affected by the noise.

It's not the best restaurant I've been to but certainly not the worst. Our friends who we went with, frequently go there. The food is good and consistent but not imaginative. I'm sure we'll be back but it probably won't be the first choice for me.

Been here many times and always had a good experience. This time, the food was a little off. They are a bit pricey, so it should not ever be off. It didn't completely scare us away. We will be back in the future..

Drinks at the bar were great while waiting for everyone to arrive. Table was ready on time. Menu suggestions from wait staff spot on. Allowed us time to review menu - not pressured to make a decision. Not rushed at all &allowed us time to talk and catch up without interruption

I have been eating at George Martin's for many years. I've enjoyed every single meal. For the first time I tried the roast chicken. It was tasty, but a bit overcooked. Since I've never had it before I don't know if this was a "one off" or not. I think it was. I certainly would not hesitate to go back as the food is typically done perfectly. Onion soup is outstanding. Our waiter was great!

We had a wonderful server named Karen who, when she saw I was looking at the menu for vegetarian options, enthusiastically recommended something that was NOT on the menu. It was the most wonderful veggie burger and everyone at the table LOVED it, even the meat eaters. Just splendid.
