Our first time at the Martini house in Burlington, started off with a few Martini's talk about an extensive list of great drinks, the brushetta was to die for, they also had a featured filet with king prawns simply delicious. Desert was creme brulee and black forest cake with cherry ice cream.....we were so satisfied and full.Service excellent, ambiance excellent, will definitely go back....
My friend and I went to the martini house Friday night for two late birthdays and a girls night out. What a fantastic place that is. Carl was our waiter and he was very friendly, funny and also explained the menu to us if we got confused. I would definitely come back again and have Carl as my waiter again. That was the best dinner I have had in a while. Thank you Carl you are the best waiter I will be coming back again to the martini house.
This restaurant was Divine the food was tasteful and the menu was amazing. Service was excellent. I will be letting everyone know about this place.
This is my favorite place to dine in downtown Burlington. The have an inventive menu always done to perfection in my experience. I highly recommend it.
My wife, daughter, sister, brother in law and I decided to eat here for lunch on Family day (during the 'Taste Of Burlington') after looking at the menu online and being intrigued. Funnily enough, the regular menu looked much better and was also CHEAPER than the Taste Of Burlington one... go figure. Anyways, immediately I knew the place wasn't family friendly. When we walked in, the average age dropped by about 30 years (we're all in our 30's, so do the math). Two tables made remarks such as (Oh.. look... a family is here) or (Well.. I guess it IS family day). Whatever, I let it slide, as we were all hungry! All of our dishes were actually very good, if perhaps a little small. However, after we were finished, no one left hungry. Our waiter was rather nice, and the woman on the phone with whom I booked the reservation was VERY accommodating, it's just a shame the other patrons weren't. Just a word of advice, if you plan on going, make sure you do NOT bring kids (which I suppose should be obvious, given it's a 'martini house', however they had a high chair available right when you walk in). Also, get ready to show your senior citizen card.
We’ve only been to the Martini House once, so I can’t say the negative reviews are mistaken, but we certainly enjoyed ourselves. Admittedly, a place like this is a little out of our usual price range, so maybe that needs to be considered. The only way we were able to go there is because our kids gave us a $100 gift certificate for our anniversary. My wife had one drink, I didn’t have any, and I still had to put in another $50 to cover the bill and tip. But we think it was worth it. The service was pleasant and prompt, but not intrusive. I had the prime rib which was cooked to perfection. The only part I didn’t care for was the asparagus. Since I never eat asparagus I can’t say whether there was anything wrong with them, just that I didn’t like them. My wife had the salmon which came with (if I remember correctly) a maple sauce. She loved the sauce so much she asked for some more on the side. Even the desserts’ were excellent. Overall, we would love to go back.
I went with my wife. It felt like a pickup bar not a restaurant. I wanted rack of lamb. They were out. The beef tenderloin I got instead was flavourless and dry. Our appetizers were interesting but weak. Good flavour on the Caesar but greens were wilted. The The seafood pasta tasted like it was made ahead and sat for a while. Lots of options downtown so I wont be back
We went to martini house last night for a few drinks and appetizers and everything was fantastic. We tried a variety of their famous martinis and shared their shrimp with mashed potatoes appetizer. Fantastic! Service was excellent as usual and despite being quite busy our food and drinks were brought over promptly. We will definitely be going back, and maybe next time we will go for a full dinner.
I just returned from my 40th birthday dinner with my mom and daughters from an extremely disappointing meal at Martini House. The drinks were, of course fine, but after that, everything else went downhill. 2 out of 4 of us opted for the Taste of Burlington menu. I ordered the mussels in curry cream sauce (which I love) but was very disappointed by these ones. The mussels were very small and the sauce was mediocre at best. My daughter had the oysters which are raw, so you can't really screw them up. The escargot potstickers were interesting but not that great. My mom and one daughter ordered the NY sirloin, I ordered the rack of lamb and my other daughter ordered the pear salad. The steaks were both ordered medium. BOTH came out SEVERELY undercooked.....in fact my mom's was BLUE in the middle. We sent them back to be cooked more, and they came out very rare again. I can maybe understand having to send food back once.........but twice??? A restaurant of this caliber should KNOW how to cook a steak! Desserts (NY cheesecake and cookie/ice cream) were fine. Our waiter was VERY apologetic and removed my mom's and daughter's meals from the bill. I left HIM a good tip. Extremely disappointed, especially considering this was a special occasion dinner. I will consider going back for martinis only, but I will NEVER eat there again.
We hadn't eaten at the Martini House for a couple of years and thought we'd swing by for lunch. Having looked at the menu on line we were looking forward to our meal. We discovered the food here is "o.k.". Nothing to write home about and nothing to tell your friends about. Just "o.k.". We actually found ourselves salting our food as it was rather bland. Something we very rarely have to do in any restaurant. The service was acceptable and the atmosphere about the same. If you're looking for a great martini then this is without question the place to go but if fine dining is what you're after I'd look elsewhere.
The food, service, and atmosphere at the Martini House are outstanding, not to mention the music. But what really impresses me more than anything is the consistency of it all. Having been to the Martini House countless times, for everything from a dinner for two, to a party for 20, I cannot recall leaving disappointed even a single time. "The Tuna Steak Frites" from the Tapas menu is a must.
As someone who has frequented the Martini House in the past, I really have to question some of these reviews - particularly the ones that promote other restaurants or comment on how "into themselves" the servers are. And I think that if you go into a place looking for problems, you probably won't be disappointed no matter where you go. In any case, my last visit, just like most of the others, was fantastic. The food is usually good-to-very good (every restaurant has it's strengths), but the drinks are hands-down the best in town. They don't just trot out the same tired drinks that are on everyone else's menu. The music is as good as I've heard anywhere - easily the best in town. As far as the service goes, I've never had an issue. The servers can actually hold a conversation, and are professional yet friendly and fun. As someone who entertains both friends and business associates often, this is my place of choice in town. It's pretty clear to me that most of the Burlington resto/bars have tried to copy this act. I'll be back again soon!
I ordered the scallop and rice entree. It was lukewarm and otherwise mediocre.
We had a great dining experiance,the atmospere and service was fantastic and my girlfriend could not get over the toilet seatcovers the have in the washroom that with one pull of the handle it puts a clean seat on, she still talks about that almost daily and wishes every place had them. Its all the little things that make this restaurant special.
We had been recommended to come to the Martini House and did so for our Anniversary. The staff was friendly, the martinis were fantastic and the food /presentation was incredible. We will be back again!
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left everything was great. The cocktails came quickly via a friendly but professional server. The Asian Nachos were great as usual. I decided to have the feature appetizer as my main entree which was Lobster Poutine. I've never eaten regular poutine but this sounded interesting. It was absolutely amazing. If this was on the regular menu I would have a tough time not having this every time we went. We also order the feature pasta which was paperdella noodle with bacon, shrimp, fresh herbs in a rose sauce. This too was amazing. The mix of fresh herbs sang out with every bite and the shrimp were cooked to perfection and very tasty. Matt the chef is highly skilled in the kitchen and his feature dishes are always inventive and full of great flavours.
Martini House is one of our favorite spots. This evening there were some good aspects and some not so good aspects. The appetizers were all fantastic as always. The feature appetizer of Watermelon and Goat Cheese was very light and refreshing ( great for summer ). The entrees were mostly good. Two of the male diners order linguine with hot sausage in a red sauce. When this was served there was no sausage which was disappointing to them. They both agreed the pasta as it was served was very good but they were looking forward to the sausage element. Two of us order the pasta pescatore which we both agreed was fantastic. One order it as shown on the menu and one order it in a light cream sauce. Both of us were pleased. The seafood elements ( shrimp, scallop, mussels ) in the pasta was done perfectly. The Stuffed Chicken entree came as we ordered it and it was really enjoyed. We asked them the change it a little and the entree came out perfect. The one disappoint was the Bang Bang Noodles. This came out as a big "sticky" mess and almost too spicy to eat. It was barely touched. But, all this being said the Martini House will remain one of our favorite places.
We had read some of the reviews here and were afraid of the service we might receive. I can say, we received stellar service at the Martini House in Burlington. I would highly recommend you check it out.
I have to start by saying that I did read the reviews here before going to Martini House. That being said, I wholeheartedly agree with the comments that the food is good but the service is not. The Asian Nachos were interesting, but didn't wow us. The lamb was not a good cut, and was far from warm when it arrived at the table. The garlic mashed potatoes were very tasty, but again, not the right temperature. Overall the food was good, but not memorably so. Our waitress was unfriendly and not attentive (which was inexcusable considering that we were one of three occupied tables in the entire restaurant). We waited way too long between placing our drink order and placing our appetizer order. Then we waited a crazy amount of time between finishing our appetizer and placing our dinner order. We weren't looking for fast food, we were looking for attentive service. We will definitely not go back to the Martini House. There are much better restaurants in town that serve better food for a better price with significantly better service.
