Martorano's Atlantic City Ratings and Reviews
7:00 pm reservation. Restaurant was not full. Ordered three entrees - took 30 minutes for the first two. The third, sea bass, followed 15 minutes later. The first two - veal parm was fine, but rigatoni with Sunday gravy was grossly undercooked and the Sunday gravy, advertised as "with chunks or pork" only had beef stew meat. The sea bass was good. Overall, extremely disappointing given the price point.
Service and ambiance were good. Food was grossly overpriced and was was not good. They advertise for "the best meatball", the only meatball dish on the menu was an appetizer and it was nothing special, in fact was one of the worst meatballs I've ever tasted, there seemed to be a lot of bread crumb filler. The eggplant stack was dry and had absolutely no taste. The Veal Parm was extremely salty, like they opened the top of the salt shaker and poured it. The Veal Marsala was ok... but for $48 just ok? Never again.
I was very disappointed in the way the hostess handled herself. I gave her my name and instead of a greeting all she said was FOLLOW ME. I stated in my reservation that this was a occasion for a Birthday. A hostess should be friendly and make you feel that your experience at this restaurant is enjoyable it made us worry about the rest of the evening. To be very truthful we will never return to this restaurant again.
Yes, it's expensive. Don't go if you aren't willing to spend what it takes. But if you are willing...it doesn't get any better.
We first ate at the Paris location in Las Vegas, and fell in love with the Mozzarella stack appetizer...so we had another one here in Atlantic City. It is just incredible!
This time around, we went with the Chicken Parm and the evening special, Chicken Sicily (?). That parm was beyond a doubt the best either of us has ever eaten. Loaded down with mozzarella (including extra on the side!) and perfectly cooked to a crispy perfection, we just wish there was a closer location so we could indulge regularly! The Sicily was wonderful, as well, with capers, olives and the delectable pepper sauce that just oozed flavor. I think I gained 15 pounds just from that one meal.
Many thanks to our delightful server Christian, who was very helpful in hooking me up with the perfect dark red wine to go with everything. We will be back to Martorano's every time we are within 50 miles of one.
First time at this location. Have been to the original in Fort Lauderdale a few times. Everything was just as amazing as the one in Ft Lauderdale. The food was so fresh and delicious. Absolutely satisfied with the quality and taste. Service was great. We had a few waiters help us out which was no big deal. At 9:30 the music cranked up and everyone was dancing and singing along to the songs. The dj was great. Amazing restaurant so glad I finally got here. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back soon.
Came here for a bachelor party. Was great for a half hour and then at 9:30 they got extremely tacky and noisy.
Apparently every Friday and Saturday at 9:30 they turn the restaurant into a dance club. There's literally no warning this will happen, people are in the middle of dinner and get interrupted by some random scenes from gangster movies. Then they just blare music so loud you can't even hear the people you're sitting with.
Despite the fact that no one was dancing and tables kept walking out, management refused to lower the volume to a tolerable level. Food was good but we just rushed it down so we could get the hell out of there. Should've know we were in trouble when I saw a picture of the head chef with cast members of the Jersey Shore.
Loved the salad and meatballs! I like my pasta cooked a little longer, but that's just me. Gravy was delicious and I loved the music that they were playing. Not your typical quiet fine dining Italian restaurant. It's a fun atmosphere with Sopranos and The Godfather being shown on the tvs. You have to go to experience it!
The first time I went here I loved it! It was during restaurant week which was the pre set menu. I raved about it to everyone and to my boyfriend who had never been. We decided to come here for this past restaurant week, since it was still participating and it was nothing like the first time. Although the service was great, the food came out luke warm, the meatball on the salad tasted a few days old and frozen, the salad was soggy in dressing, my pasta was hard as a rock (which I sent back) when It came back out it was drenched in butter and oil, the desert was pre plated and tasted like a typical boxed desert. Nothing was special or felt homemade at all. The best dish we tried was the eggplant appetizer which still was sub par. I was highly disappointed, it seemed like a total waste of money and time I could of made a meal at home myself that was 10x better. The service however was great, I just wish the food was the same!
Atmospher was very loud, could not even talk with my friend. We had dined there before and we pleased with our server, food and atmosphere. This time the server was lax, the bus boy did most of the service, dark and noisy, and the server took some of the money we spent to pay the bill for himself as the balance was charged to my room. Would not recommend. For a great Italian meal go to the Bucca at Ballys.
We went to Martorano's during Restaurant Week and were disappointed. I was a bit surprised to be seated next to the kitchen door when the restaurant was empty. I asked to be moved and we were moved to the next booth. The appetizers were great, however, the entrée I had was the Bucatini Carbonara and it was supposed to be al dente and it was undercooked and actually tough. My friend was also surprised that her Veal Parmesan was not served with pasta, she had to pay extra. The Tiramisu was disappointing as the sponge cake was stale.
We had been to the restaurant last year to celebrate a birthday and I had the Carbonara and it was excellent. We were anticipating great food and service and were disappointed. I would think that during Restaurant Week you would want to impress your guests so that they would return; not the case in this instance.
A group of four went for restaurant week. I have been there a few other times and the food was much better. One in our party became ill and was in the restroom four times before we left the casino. I stopped by the hostess stand to let the very young ladies know and their response was a blank stare. They were socially challenged, maybe if I text message that the egg on the carbonara was undercooked they would have forwarded the message to the chef. I feel it stopped at the hostess stand and the staff should be more experienced.
My expectations were high and Mataranos did not meet them. However, it was good. Not great but good. Service was good, atmosphere nice - good music and movies playing in the background with closed caption on. Food was adequate, bread a bit stale, rigatoni really aldente but filling. I'd eat there again but would not go out of my way to eat there like I would Carmines❤️
Waitress forgot to bring our fried calamari app and we didnt realize it until the next day. She also asked my friend if he wanted a side of pasta and brought a full plate and charged him for 2 entrees. Waited 15 mins for her to come back with our check, and when we gave her 4 credit cards and asked her to split, she gave us a ton of attitude. She then stopped at the table next to us on her way to process the bill and apologized to them saying she wouldnt be back to take their orders for 10 minutes because of us. Very rude and inappropriate - it would be one thing to just say that to us, but to say that to people we didnt know shows she was legitimately upset. I like the food but the waitress really hurt the experience.
The stuffed clams, meatball, stuffed peppers and eggplant stack are unbelievable starters. The lobster and veal dishes were amazing also. Beware of the chicken parm---it was cafeteria grade at best and we sent it back. They exchanged it for another dish that was awesome. No questions asked. Great service.
