Very Nice

I went on a Friday night and was immediately seated. We were greeted by a friendly staff. The ambiance was romantic. Our waiter was very attentive. The service was fast. The food was appealing and delicious. The only negative was the parking.

First time here. We went with friends from Stratford. Started off with a bottle of Cabernet. Spring Roll and and the Clams special were the appetizers for the table. Both very good. The four entrees were Scallops, Filet w/ Lobster and Shrimp, Rack of Lamb and the Scallop and Shrimp special. All were fabulous. The waitress and the manager were... More

When we arrived at 6:40 on a snowy Sunday evening, the restaurant was one-third full, with one large party of 8-10 people. The bar was almost empty. We placed our food order within 10-15 minutes of arriving. Our shared appetizer was right on time, and then...and then...our salads arrived another half hour later. We hardly saw our waitstaff, but when... More

The moment we walked in, my husband and I felt welcomed. Charles our waiter was so nice and accommodating. We mentioned that we have a Groupon and he made us feel that we made a good decision purchasing it. The food was so good that I featured it on my blog. For complete details and pictures, check out my food... More

We love this restaurant! Sorry that we no longer live in New Haven but always make a point to eat here when we are back in town. The servers are friendly and make suggestions when asked. The salads are delicious and there is a wide choice of entrees. Never had dessert (always too full as the portions are generous). A... More

Everything we have ever tried here is absolutely delicious. We have dined her about 10 times now. Even our college aged 'children' love this restaurant. We finally ate one time in the bar area on St. Patricks Day and thoroughly enjoyed that as well. It is so well worth 'upgrading' your salad, which comes with the meal that you order,... More

We went with some friends and my wife picked Christopher Martin's as neither couple had been there and we'd seen a great review elsewhere. It's right across from Modern Pizza on upper Orange St and easy to find parking (they have valet as well). The bar was nice and had plenty of room to sit at a table across from... More

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
