Simply the best! We’ve been going to GM for 24 years, but hadn’t been there in the last 2 since moving to the city. What a treat to go back and meet up with friends Friday night. Starting with Annie behind the bar making the best manhattans and martinis and always a delight, we knew it was the same place. I ordered my favorites, sesame tuna appetizer and the petite filet mignon, while others enjoyed the pork chop special. The food was fantastic, and you never feel rushed there. For as many steakhouses we’ve been to in NYC, George Martin is still the best, and, by the way, a quick ride to Rockville Centre.

SUZANNE watches over a wonderful dining experience. The service, as always , was first class and the food was outstanding. I do not know why people travel so far when George Martin is so close in Rockville Centre. Go - you will be glad you did!!

Food was delicious. We always enjoy the GM salad. One of our party enjoyed the seafood dish. My husband and friend liked the rigatoni a la vodka and I had the burrata Chicken parmigiana. Very good.

The food & service is consistently amazing. I've been a customer since it opened in Rockville Centre and the menu changes, but the quality of the food never does!

We hadn’t eaten there in a while and forgot forget how much we liked it. We liked it so much on Thursday, we’re going back tonight tonight( four days later.)
The popovers are amazing and food and variety are impressively varied.
The prices are a little high as we eat out often but if you go out infrequently, well worth it.
We were there on a Thursday night and it was very noisy but that means the restaurant is busy and business is good. Next time, we’ll go out the beginning of the week when I imagine it will be less crowded.

A neighborhood staple, George Martin, The Original, never disappoints, except perhaps when it's 95 degrees out... which is what happened to us. Their A/C just wasn't up to the task, so we had a lovely dinner in a dining room which was about 79 degrees toasty. There wasn't too much anyone could do about the situation, but the ice in our drinks melted almost immediately. Since on such a blistering day, anyone crazy enough to go out to eat is hoping to cool off at the restaurant when they get there, we were a bit unhappy, but the service was excellent and the food (the GM salad and the wedge, the simple broiled salmon and the Branzino were all excellent). The house also served us a complimentary lemon square desert, which was lovely.

Great restaurant all around. Food and service excellent. I did miss my New York strip steak on the menu. The loudness of the noise can be distracting.

It was our first visit and it will not be our last. Our server ( I am ashamed to say I don’t recall her name) was attentive , knowledgeable and superb.
From the moment we walked it, we knew it would be a happy birthday for my wife. Great place to relax and eat!!!

Another outstanding experience. We were met at the reservation desk and immediately greeted and escorted to our table and as were walking to our table we were greeted by various staff that we met. Thanks very pleasant. The waitress had some menu suggestions that we took advantage of. The meal was great. The staff was aware of our Anniversary and took the opportunity to congratulate us.
