I asked for a quiet part of the restaurant & we were seated in the side room, which was very nice. Our server, Kristen, was great, food delicious and we weren’t rushed at all. Lovely evening!

It was our first visit and it will not be our last. Our server ( I am ashamed to say I don’t recall her name) was attentive , knowledgeable and superb.
From the moment we walked it, we knew it would be a happy birthday for my wife. Great place to relax and eat!!!

Another outstanding experience. We were met at the reservation desk and immediately greeted and escorted to our table and as were walking to our table we were greeted by various staff that we met. Thanks very pleasant. The waitress had some menu suggestions that we took advantage of. The meal was great. The staff was aware of our Anniversary and took the opportunity to congratulate us.

I’ve been going here for years. This time food was subpar. The banana dessert was odd in texture - both the pudding and “brownie”. There was a party above us and you could hear children stomping and jumping. The schnitzel plate was a mess with too much food and smothered in gravy and mushrooms. Waiter was very polite and attentive.

We ate at GM on Sunday and had a great meal. The service and the food was excellent. I had the tuna appetizer and wings which everyone loved. The pasta special was filling and delicious. The bartender made excellent drinks and the waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend GM for a casual dinner or a special occasion.

We dined for our anniversary on a Wednesday nite. I mentioned it to our hostess. The service was great. The food excellent. Order the onion soup. I ordered a coconut margarita as I had not seen or tasted one. Very nice! We had no room for dessert just coffee. But the waitress brought us a couple of cannolis on the house with a candle for the occasion. It was very lovely.

We had a friends get together and we sat at the bar for happy hour waiting for our friends to arrive.
The bartender was very friendly and welcoming. ....she was great however I would love to see a better selection and quality wines by the glass....both red and white.
We were seated at our table on time for our reservation. The server was efficient and friendly. The grilled Bronzino was tasty but watch out for bones....the roasted broccoli was delicious. My friend had the short ribs over pasta which was excellent.
My husband had a burger which he raves about. The shrimp parm was very good .
Good quality food for a very fair price.

GM exceeds all standards for a dining experience. The food was beyond excellent, our waitress Christina was highly professional and catered to every request. The manager, Patty, greeted us when we first came in and personally checked in on our dining experience throughout the evening as she made her way around the dining floor. The atmosphere is very quiet and classy, the staff is unbelievable, and the food is some of the best regardless of what you get. You have to start your meals off with the chili pop shrimp, it is absolutely amazing.

You know that when you go to George Martin you’ll always get great food and great service. I would recommend reservations because it can get crowded and you don’t want to be disappointed. We sat in the corner, a small alcove, which has only 6 or 7 tables, and the noise level was very low. There is main dining/bar area where it can be noisy and another separate dining room where the noise level is usually fine. Regardless of noise level, not miss eating at George Martin’s.

FOR MY MONEY, GEORGE MARTIN CAN NOT BE BEAT. SUZANNE RUNS A TIGHT SHIP AND THE SERVICE, AMBIANCE AND FOOD QUALITY ARE ALWAYS TOP NOTCH. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING LIKE IT ON LONG ISLAND'S SOUTH SHORE. THE FILET MIGNON, MY FAVORITE, IS AS GOOD AS YOU WILL FIND IN ANY NYC STEAKHOUSE. WHY TRAVEL WHEN SUCH A FINE RESTAURANT IS RIGHT HERE IN ROCKVILLE CENTRE! GO, YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID!!
