This used to be a very good dining experience, not any more. There is no creativity. Had the Trio which was 2 scallops 3 shrimp and an undercooked crab cake and cost $30 and swimming in what was supposed to be scampi sauce but wasn’t. And Hake special which was smothered in pile of bread crumbs. Best part of meal was pop overs. Disappointing.

We enjoyed a nice meal at GM. The food was very good and the server was lovely. I must note, however, upon arrival (15 minutes early for our reservation), we found the hostess unfriendly and rude. When we mentioned our reservation was confirmed for 6:30pm she replied "well you will have to wait another 15-20 minutes to be seated". We noticed there were plenty of empty tables but agreed to wait at the bar until our table was ready. We waited until 7pm and politely asked again if our table was ready. She replied with an attitude "if you want to sit now then you can sit now". Perhaps it was an off night for her but here is a clear case of the wrong person for the job.

Went the Saturday after Valentine's day so I didn't expect amazing service. Luckily I had set the bar low. The food is fine, nothing special, certainly not worth the price. Felt like they weren't ready for the crowd at all. Our waitress barely checked on us, never asked if we wanted another drink or needed anything. Seemed like they were more concerned with getting people in and out of the restaurant. I wouldn't bother coming back.

We enjoyed George Martin very much. We were seated immediately, though the place was quite crowded, and we loved the 3 kinds of flavored butter that came with the delicious popovers and sliced bread. Appetizers, entrees, desserts and service were excellent, and the extra plates and spoons we asked for were brought quickly. My only complaint was the noise level, which was so high as to make conversation difficult. Overall, a fine experience.

Friends and I came in and the three of us were made to wait at the podium while BOTH young women picked up phone calls. Neither acknowledged us and we were already discussing walking out when they finally hung up the phone. I did say something but this was poorly received. Have been many times, this time was disappointing

Never disappointed at GM Original! Great place to unwind with friends or for a business dinner. In addition to the usual menu there are always great specials! We enjoyed both Steak and fish choices as well as a special salad. Service is always top notch and management is visible and asking if anything is needed. Great bar crowd and bar tenders for before (or after) dinner. One of our favorite places!!!

I’ve been going to George Martin regularly for 30 years and am never disappointed. The food, libations, service, setting and staff are wonderful. My favorite Long Island restaurant. I highly recommend. Great selection of dishes to satisfy most, if not all, tastes. Excellent wine listings and recommendations. Brought my sister and brother-in-law from Texas over holidays who know their steaks. They loved the George Martin steaks. Thanks GM!
