The service was excellent, the meatball appetizer reminded me of my moms meatballs which were delicious. The mustard and pretzel crusted salmon had a wonderful flavor which was accompanied by sautéed vegetables cooked perfectly with a little crunch. The wine however was a little pricey as we discovered it to be at our local liquor store. All in all it was a great night and look forward to returning.

Excellent service and a very good value if going with the Prix-fixe menu which we did. My 6oz filet was perfect as was my wife's salmon. The salad was fresh and the two desserts offered were also very good. The staff was attentive and kept up with all sanitary Covid precautions. Would come back again.

I was disappointed with my server. My wife and I both ordered the steak special which comes with a salad, we ordered the wedge salad BUT that is not the salad that comes with the special. No heads up from server and they charged us $12 each for the other salad(s). Sounds like a little heads up or hey we have to charge $4 more for that salad was in order. Bill was $250 for 4 people with one drink each - sounds like alot

We went to George Martin The Original as a family on a Tuesday night. I had the shrimp and tuna (excellent tuna, melt in your mouth), my husband had the meatloaf which he quite enjoyed, and my kid had the seafood trio which was also very well prepared. We have always found the service to be friendly and professional, an excellent combination. I'm looking forward to our next meal there.

George Martin is RVC’s neighborhood place, and very welcoming. I had the bucatini with lobster and shrimps in red sauce, amazing! The polenta crusted calamari was perfectly crisp. Being a Friday, the place was packed and loud but great overall.

Overall left much to be desired. Ordered shrimp bisque soup and it was like water. I took one spoon full and returned it. i asked the waitress why is the shrimp bisque like water with zero taste. She said her manager went and tried it and agreed it was watery and tasteless. Then why serve it? Anyway the steak itself was very good. Overall ok place less the soup but very pricey.

This used to be a very good dining experience, not any more. There is no creativity. Had the Trio which was 2 scallops 3 shrimp and an undercooked crab cake and cost $30 and swimming in what was supposed to be scampi sauce but wasn’t. And Hake special which was smothered in pile of bread crumbs. Best part of meal was pop overs. Disappointing.

We enjoyed a nice meal at GM. The food was very good and the server was lovely. I must note, however, upon arrival (15 minutes early for our reservation), we found the hostess unfriendly and rude. When we mentioned our reservation was confirmed for 6:30pm she replied "well you will have to wait another 15-20 minutes to be seated". We noticed there were plenty of empty tables but agreed to wait at the bar until our table was ready. We waited until 7pm and politely asked again if our table was ready. She replied with an attitude "if you want to sit now then you can sit now". Perhaps it was an off night for her but here is a clear case of the wrong person for the job.

Went the Saturday after Valentine's day so I didn't expect amazing service. Luckily I had set the bar low. The food is fine, nothing special, certainly not worth the price. Felt like they weren't ready for the crowd at all. Our waitress barely checked on us, never asked if we wanted another drink or needed anything. Seemed like they were more concerned with getting people in and out of the restaurant. I wouldn't bother coming back.
