Great little restaurant, we enjoyed all three dishes that we shared. We had the Panzanella Salad, Lamb Shoulder Ragu and the Garlic Prawn Pizza. The ragu and salad we're outstanding.

Fun and vibrant but the food wasn’t anything special, my gnocchi was so sweet it tasted like dessert. Wine was fine. Would go back for the donuts! Service was relaxed and pleasant, always there when we needed it but not interrupting too often. Let us stay chatting well after everyone was gone and until they were ready to mop the floors. i would t rush back but we did have an enjoyable night

We really enjoed the experience and had a lovely night. I love how all the food was made from scratch. You could really taste the freshness and quality. I did find the lamb ragu pasta dish quite bland. I think it needed more salt and pepper. The pizza was very nice.

Martha Street Kitchen cancelled our booking very late on the afternoon of December 12 so my review doesn't count. I wanted to let you know what happened.

If I were to recommend Martha Street Kitchen to a friend, I would add a warning label! The loudness of the music prevented meaningful and easy conversation amongst all members of our table. When I asked if the music could be turned down, I was promptly told it added to the experience.

Whilst the gnocchi was quite tasty the portion size (it was a main) was entrée-sized. We're not big eaters and even we thought it was too small. Also, there were limited options for vegan diets and the vegan with our group was disappointed at the lack of choice. The house wine (red) was awful - seriously, for $12 a glass we think they could do better.

We had a great experience at Martha St Kitchen. One of our party was highly gluten intolerant. They had run out of GF pizza bases which initially made us feel a bit let down for our friend, but the amazing staff came up with a plan and prepared her a special GF dish to compensate. Outstanding! Also really good value for money.

We had a lovely dinner at Martha St kitchen. Wait staff were very friendly and efficient. Food and wine was delicious. The only thing we would have liked was for our pizzas to be delivered at the same time. We had two together and the third was much later than the first two. Otherwise, it's a great place to visit.

Food and service was superb. We will be back. Friday night the music was turned up loud and whole small restaurant of people trying to talk over it was very noisy. Not that conducive to good conversation.

My wifes prawn pasta was excellent -
i had proscuitto and artichoke pizza - base was too bland, under seasoned, taste combo was erratic.
Not happy with choice of wines nor price - can understand the high markups , but selection not broad enough in grape variety and price.
Service was excellent!

We have been to Martha St Kitchen a few times now. The service has been slow but good food so we have gone back. This time though, the service was really poor, we had to chase to place orders for food and drinks, half our mains were delivered and almost finished before the other half came and they forgot one meal altogether. After waiting ages for the food the waiter then promptly told us to leave our table as it had been rebooked and was uncomfortably rude to us. We don’t be going back.

We ordered 2 pasta dishes, one was very nice and the other not so good (lacked flavour and the seafood was chewy) . Wine list was limited,. Only one desert on offer (lemon myrtle) which didn't appeal. The pasta was expensive for what we got.

We booked well in advance and when we got there, we were seated right at the back and it was very noisy so we politely asked to be moved if a table became available. The response we got was no. But then a table became available and instead of offering it to us, they gave it to other walk ins - who obviously hadn't booked. We were also take back that there was only one dessert option and no tea or coffee...Even on mother's day? We won't be returning because while the small meals were tasty, the value is much better elsewhere

We need more venues like this! Well priced, simple but carefully created menu (more than anything I could whip up myself), on point friendly and knowledgeable service, one of my favourite wine lists in town, overall stellar venue!

Pizzas are featured on the menu and you take pride in their quality. On a recent Saturday night, we were very disappointed with ours. The crust was soggy and the dried tomatoes overwhelmed the flavours of the other ingredients.
The menu has a limited range of wines which were so overpriced that we felt as though we had been had.
