Seated on the patio we enjoyed our meal despite waits for attentive staff. The highlight was the pea soup with lots of little surprises. Wine choices by the glass were good.

Restaurant Martin is always at least very good and usually really excellent. On this Friday evening in May, four of us had a great, relaxing, delicious, enjoyable dinner with outstanding service. I had the asparagus salad to start, just great, and the sautéed gulf prawns...More

The type of restaurant I am looking for on a vacation- somewhat expensive but worth it - chef run and excellent creative dishes - not concerned with quantity but quality - service was also spot on from the minute we walked in until we left

I don't know why this restaurant gets such good reviews. The last three times I have eaten there have been unmemorable. Service is bad to so-so, and the food lacks creativity. Portions are small and prices high. The fish special was microscopic, although tasty and...More

We were very impressed with the sheer beauty of our plated dinners at Martin; they demonstrated attention to detail of presentation not often found even in fine-dining restaurants. Creative combinations (orzo "mac-and-cheese," - $6 - for instance) were pleasant surprises. Our duck breast ($34), chicken...More

Read about Restaurant Martin in the Washington Post – had to go. Very clear Chef Martin is the driving force behind innovative, creative, sensationally tasty appetizers, entrees and desserts. Some of the things we tried and loved were the Coffee Roasted Beet Salad, with pears,...More

I dressed up a bit more than usual for dinner at Martin on a regular night. I'm sure they would be gracious and welcoming whatever you wore, but for New Year's I agree--I would probably go dressier than for a less festive... More
