It was OK. Food was not bad but not good. Waiter was wearing slippers. Blasting techno music during hockey and basketball games ... didn't really fit the crowd that was in there. Needed more dinner/casual bar music not club music. OK rating at best

I have never written a bad review about a restaurant, but I felt compelled to write this so that no one else makes the same mistake that I did!! I have eaten at CM's on at least 5 prior occasions and have been pleased with the food quality and service. Believing that it would be the same this time, I decided to bring my family there for restaurant week and order off of that menu. This was a last minute reservation I called in approx 3 hours before arriving, and appreciated that they were willing to accommodate the request. I ordered fried calamari, which was a "serving for two." Restaurant week menus include appetizer, dinner, and dessert. Because this was supposedly to serve 2, my father did not order an appetizer since we were going to share. To my dismay when the calamari arrived there was possibly 2 large spoonfulls worth, if that. I had about 5 pieces, my dad maybe 6, and that was our "serving for two." A little disappointed, I hoped that dinner would be a marked improvement.... wow was I wrong. Also note that complimentary salads were not provided, as they almost always are at any restaurant prior to entree. Dinner: My choice was a sea scallop dish that was served over pasta. I received 3 scallops, and about 3 forkfulls worth of pasta. I would guess that the total amount of pasta I had was about 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup, if that. It barely covered the bottom of my plate (my father also ordered the same meal). I asked the waitress to bring out some cheese and it took at least 10 minutes from when I made the request to the time she appeared at the table. By this time, my pasta was lukewarm. My mom ordered a chicken dish which was marginally more generous than the pasta, but all three of us were incredibly disappointed with the unacceptably small portions. I can understand if you don't want to include more than 3 scallops. But honestly, providing the diner with at least a cup of pasta literally costs a restaurant pennies, if that. We were all quite hungry, and the dessert was equally disappointing. The dining room was full when we were there, which I believe really affected the level of service we received. While our waitress had a great personality and seemed quite pleasant, I really hoped that she would take the time to ask for our feedback regarding our dining experience. This never happened, which is part of the reason why I'm writing this review. Our check came to about $130 for 3 of us, and we all genuinely felt that it was outrageously high given the ridiculously small portion sizes. If you subtract amount spent on drinks, total cost for 3 dinners ended up being around $105 before tax. I don't want to dissuade diners from going to CM's if you're looking to have some bar food and a few drinks. For that, it's great. However, this was a night out that both me and my family really looked forward to, and it was a considerable let down given the lack of attentive service and reasonable portion sizes. I dine out at least once-twice per week, and gladly pay (and tip) for great food and service. However, For $32 each person, there's absolutely no reason why they can't ensure that diners receive a quality experience with reasonable, dinner-sized portions to encourage repeat visits. Isn't that the point of restaurant week?

Called in this morning to request a big order for my company who is throwing a special event for over 150 people. Because of the popularity in my office with the restaurant i decided to reach out to the owner, I asked to speak to Christopher Vigilante and he starts blowing a whistle into the phone. I didn't recognize it as being a whistle at first, i thought something happened to the connection, it soon stopped after a few seconds and the gentleman asked if I wanted to speak with Christopher so I said yes and that is when i realized that he started blowing a whistle into the phone. Maybe he thought I was a telemarketer because we get that alot but I know where to not ever order something for my company EVER!!!! NEVER FROM THIS PLACE! THEIR OWNER WAS VERY CHILDISH AND THAT IS NOT HOW YOU RUN A BUSINESS. I will let my network of over 10,000 Business owners know where not to order or send anyone to get food! RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!

This place is a piece of crap, first time I called in and they told me they are open till 1am, when I arrived at 10,30 pm I was told the kitchen is closed and I cant have a dinner, next day I reserved a table for an evening dinner and was 15min late, as a result I didnt have a dinner again because the kitchen had been closed already, worst service ever.

Great pub food, and a good beer selection. Occasionally you'll see a sought after microbrew flying under the radar. Very friendly service, as well.

Our son and his fiancé chose Christopher Martin's for their rehearsal dinner. We worked with Brian Virtue, one of the owners, and could not be more pleased with the outcome. Because of the size of our party (30 people), they closed their dining room for the evening and we had the place to ourselves. Brian worked with us to plan the perfect menu of hors d'oeurves, main course, and dessert. They even accommodated a couple of special menus because of allergies. On the evening of the dinner, the room was set up perfectly, menus were on the tables and they assigned two servers and a busboy to serve our needs. All went perfectly. Service was great, food was outstanding and everyone had a great relaxing time. They even accommodated us by allowing us to bring in a special birthday cake for our son. If anyone needs a place for a special occasion, be it two people or 30, think about Christopher Martins Restaurant. You will not be disappointed. Oh yes, their squash ravioli is the best I have eaten as is their duck confit,
