We had a reservation and as expected they had the table reserved and waiting for us. Not sure if they were short staffed but the hostess also had to seat each guest causing a delay in patrons checking in. Jen was an awesome waitress and was so informative, friendly and accommodating. Food was fresh, hot, and tasty.

One of my all time favorites. Wish the entree choices for restaurant week were better. Not too good this time but all else was good.

Was there for Restaurant Week. Great choices and excellent food. Service was good. Noise level in front of restaurant was loud but we were seated in a quieter area in the back. Definitely would go back. Did I mention real whipped cream on the desserts? Yum!

Tried for restaurant week and this is definitely a place I would go back to for special dining. Service was impecable and very attentive to every detail. Food was very tasty although my sweet potato fries were hit and miss, one crunchy and another frozen in the middle. Wings were crunchy and flavorful. The meatballs were perfectly cooked. The suggested wine was a surprising delight. Overall a great experience especially at the prize fix value.

We went to George Martin the Original for Restaurant Week. Everything, service, food, etc. was great. I had a few requests re: food prep that were followed to a T, which has not been my experience in a lot of restaurants. All in all, it was a wonderful experience.

We went at 5 pm on Sunday, the first day of L.I. Restaurant Week. The service was good, the food was mediocre to good, portions were average and the value was also average. Overall this was a three to four-star experience.

Food was great. We wanted to share our soup and main courses which the kitchen staff did without a problem. Jen D, our server was personable and efficient. She made sure we weren’t rushed or waited too long between course. A totally pleasant dining experience.

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.
