If you're into high class fancy food walk down the street to Carmen Anthony's. If you want to wait on line for an hour for pizza, Modern is right next door. If you want a friendly neighborhood bar with really good food, bartenders who know what they're doing, and colorful locals, go to Christopher Martins. I've never had a bad... More

Fantastic food and the staff are very accomodating. Appetizer, salad, dinner w/glass of wine and a dessert to share, absolutely superb. Great start (or finish) to a very romantic experience.

We went to Christopher Martin's on a Monday night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I was very impressed with the quality of the food and the attention to detail, i.e. linen tablecloths and napkins, candles, excellent warm bread, really good menu selections, exceptional tea selections after dinner. The balsamic salad dressing was the best I've tasted. Many of the meats,... More

The service, superb. The food, delicious. The price, reasonable. Five people dining together and everyone's meal was perfect. We enjoyed a bottle of wine with dinner and the price was still reasonable.

W had a great time celebrating my Mother in law's birthday at this farm to table restaurant. She said it was the best steak she had in years and they gave her a free dessert as well. The waiter was super nice and accommodating and they offer free valet parking on the weekend. The food is fresh, delicious, and the... More

Went there on a Groupon and felt that we got a good deal. The goat cheese salad was terrific. Our server tried to talk us into switching either the entree or the included mesclum salad for something else but we resisted...should have gone for it, as there's only so much lettuce a person can eat. Entrees included the sirloin with... More

My wife and I had not been to Christopher Martin in many years. Not sure why, but we had not. When Groupon offered a deal we took it and had dinner there last night. The food was good. Calamari was prepared very nicely and it was a most generous portion. I had the rack of lamb. The meat was excellent... More

My friends and I came in for lunch and had a soup and salad. Our server took approximately 12 minutes to deliver our waters. Our French onion soups came 25 minutes later and completely lacked flavor, our salads came immediately after our soups. There was no spacing of our courses and while finally consuming our "appetizers," our meals were left... More

Lunch or dinner, you can't go wrong. Top shelf food in a 'home' type setting. Chicken sambuca off the charts for flavor and portions.
