How sad! George Martin was an excellent restaurant for so many years. It was the standard to which all other Rockville Centre restaurants were held. Unfortunately, those days are gone. George Martin is really little more than a glorified diner at this point. The menu has many fewer choices than in days gone by and the food quality has diminished as well. The choices which remain are oh hum at best and the food just doesn't seem fresh or appealing. The last two meals I had there, with my husband and another couple, left us all yearning for the George Martin we remember fondly. Our once "go to" place is now our "don't go to" place. Don't waste your time if you are looking for something really good. If you are satisfied with just an okay meal, it will do. Otherwise, there are many other excellent choices in town. Take advantage of what Rockville Centre has to offer. This is no longer one of the best.

As always this restaurant does not disappoint. We hadn't been there for about a year and decided we would go again. We made a reservation for Saturday for the five of us (this is a must on the weekend). The bar as usual was full as it is a great spot. We were seated promptly. The waitress was very friendly and professional. We all had the signature GM salad which is outstanding. As they are very big we had 3 salads for the five of us and they portion it for you. We all had different entrees and everyone was extremely satisfied with their selection. I had the Ahi Tuna which was the best I have ever had. My wife is gluten free and they are very attentive to that and still have a variety of foods to select. The dessert was great and it was a very satisfying evening. It is a little more expensive but worth it.

Soe of us had Beed, some fish, and some Pasta. All received praises. One of our party had been in recently and the waitress remembered the wine she liked. The service was very accomodating including a last minute request for a dessert with a candle; we were celebrating a birthday.

We'll go again for sure.

Note: the restaurant is in the heart of town, near the train station, so parking isn't provided. We found a spot on the second time around, though.

Friendly and attentive. Nice to have a drink at the bar and not rushed to the table. Food very good, and atmosphere great. Several rooms to choose from.

Tried the pork medallion special! Really good. Don't normally eat dessert, but the pecan pie sundae was delicious! I will definitely return.
