Delicious steaks and a cosy elegant venue

The steaks here are very good and cooked exactly as ordered. The portions are generous, and the staff are attentive and friendly.

Martini's on Main changed hands a few years ago. Glad for the new owners! The food is made just like you want it and is delicious!

Quaint and well kept secret. Dining room is small so I would recommend reservations as a must. A locals restaurants was the vibe I got with a great atmosphere. All staff were pleasant, attentive and knowable in the dishes. Brent was our server and did an exceptional job. Ala carte menu $$$ price point but food prepared well. I would... More

Had a great dinner. Friendly server. Delicious steak. Yummy martinis. Will go again. Our group had porterhouse, boar and pork all were good. We hope next time we go the boar is still available.

For the prices they charge here, you would expect a better dining experience. But across the board, there was nothing special about this place- average service, average food, average atmosphere. Didn't necessarily regret our visit, but won't be back.

We love eating at Martini's on Main. Klara makes the best martinis & has an amazing menu. Her homemade cheese cake is to die for!

My wife and I frequent Martinis on Main. We love the place! The last time in I had the 26oz 35 Dry Aged Bone-In Ribeye....and it was amazing. We are in the F&B business and we are not quick to dish out accolades....but this little spot is great all around. Food....service....martinis. Nice job....and thanks for some great evenings!

My husband & I frequent this place. Delicious food, small intimate setting...Martinis are the best! We are food snobs and appreciate good food. If you have a palate with an affinity for good food made with a unique flair this is your place! One of our favorites!

Honestly I never really like giving bad reviews but sometimes....well. This place is just okay. It is pricey which is fine if the food or service were really great which it's not. This first time we went it was with another couple and I would rate that experience as about a 3.5 so we gave it another try tonight. The... More
