Nice selection of entrees. The fig appetizer was wonderful. Nicely decorated... tables were adequately spaced apart. Bar is intimate & cozy. It was my first visit and I will visit again.

Saturday night dinner on a cold night temperatures in the 20s. Food was excellent although presentation was a bit unusual in some cases (pasta dish was served in a skillet). However, we were seated in an enclosed outdoor space which was cold and drafty. In fact it was so cold that we had to eat with our coats on. Not a very pleasurable meal.

Loved the whole experience. The food was outstanding as was the service. Antonio and his staff have a potential "Home Run" on their hands. We'll be back again and again.

The service was excellent and the food delicious. We had salads and the calamari appetizer prior to our salmon entrees. The wine selection had enough variety and the prices were reasonable. We will definitely return.

We had a great experience after trusting other open table reviewers. Tried it for the first time but we will be back. Bar is small but drinks were great. We were seated quickly when we were ready and had great service by Nicole. Apps and dinners were great. Only only regret is we didn’t have room for the amazing desserts we saw delivered to other tables.

Drinks were high priced and the food was a little overpriced but the service was excellent and the restaurant cute. Hope they fix the road in front soon as it detracts from business. Would have liked a few more figure friendly dishes on the menu.

Great Brussels sprouts and cocktails. Perfectly cooked salmon and risotto. Pasta, octopus, and prime rib were enjoyed by my friends. Perfect place for a Sunday night dinner and drinks to end one week and start another. We’ll be back.

My wife and I very much enjoyed our recent trip to the Martinsville Tavern. Food and service both excellent, and a good cocktail menu as well. Sometimes I'm afraid to order interesting sounding cocktails because they turn out to be a big glass of sugar water, but the ones I tried here were excellent. Parking can be tricky, and getting there currently requires dodging some construction signs since the road directly in front is mostly closed off, but you can get there if you try. It's worth the effort.

Nicole was our server who makes the place great. The food is really good but listen to your servers , they can make all the difference . We didn’t notice the calamari app and the way they make it here is very unique and really amazing . Thanks to Nicole we had it . Everything was great :) highly recommend .!

We are continually impressed with both the service and the food here. While the menu is extensive I have tried the specials each time I have been here. All have been outstanding. Their rib eye specials are especially exceptional. The service is friendly, attentive and they truly care about your dining experience.

Menu was varied and food was pretty well executed. (my pork was a bit dry and overcooked but I reined to seen it back). Hated the shameless commercial for Kendall Jackson at start of meal. It was tacky and set a bad tone. (KJ really?)
Server was knowledgeable but a bit forced and artificial

We were there for a family gathering with family coming over from Germany.
Perfect location, excellent food, friendly service.
One of the best places I know in the Warren area.
6 out of 5 stars, if that is possible... 😃

This spot has changed names many times, and each time it was not good previously. HOWEVER, a couple years ago a new owner came in and it was excellent, and although they recently changed the name to the Martinsville Tavern (with many of the same people), it is STILL just as good. Anyone who has not been here recently will be surprised. They completely updated everything inside a couple years ago - walls, fixtures, decor, new porch - it's all really sharp, completely remodelled and everything is nice. Been here multiple times and the food is also great. The menu is not huge, has some interesting items, but a nice variety. We've been here a few times and have enjoyed everything so far. As for seating, the dining room area is a little darker and quieter. The enclosed porch area is nice and a little more lively, but it can get too warm out there if it's very hot out. The Tavern name is a little misleading as it feels like a nicer place inside. For dinner dress code, might see some nice shorts in the summer, but overall dinner feels more like nice jeans or business casual. The atmosphere feels upscale casual yet relaxed. Parking lot has always been way too small, and fortunately it looks like they're finally in the process of expanding it. There's also a decent separate bar area, small but nice, and not typically crowded.

Brought a friend from NYC out to dine with us and the experience was the usual “10/10.” The fried calamari is a uniquely tasty rendition of a popular fav and the Bar very attentive to requests.

Our only suggestion is that the cucumber soup would do better without adding a spicy seasoning and just letting the otherwise fresh summery taste carry the dish.

Still a “10” overall.

Unfortunately we went there during a really hot weekend and their air conditioning must not have been working. It made the dinner long and very uncomfortable. Menu options were ok, not a lot of great choices for me, but it was good. Took long to get served which added to the discomfort. Food was good, people were super nice, decor was lovely. Just not our best night out overall because of being so uncomfortable. Wished we left and came another time.
