Food is OK. Based on prices they think its nicer than it is. Waiters and waitresses don't know how to be a high end waiter. I think they were rounded up from Denny's somewhere.

Absolutely this restaurant has the best view in Burlington. Great food & wine, but everything is very expensive. Just a little too dark, but could be fine if you are just few people at the table. The bar is very good too.

Known for their prime rib, chicken lips(their invention of chicken fingers in a spicy sauce) and specialty main courses. Only order 1 dessert for the entire group. The view of the Mississippi is great, so request that seating when making reservations.

This restaurant overlooks the river and downtown Burlington. We only go there for special occasions as it is a little pricey for our budget. It is like a big city restaurant, smaller portions and bigger prices.

We had a nice meal here. The restaurant is a converted hospital on the 4th floor overlooking the Mississippi River. My only complaint is that the elevator wasn't working and there are elderly people going up and down all those flights of stairs. A local couple told us that isn't unusual for this building.

After a week of expectation Martinis came thru. We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and we got to enjoy dinner on the patio. Our waitress was wonderful and it was her that made sure the weather was amazing and the view was fabulous. The Chicken lips was fabulous and the "Half-a**** (not to be confused with the big-a***) creme pie... More

On a recent visit to the Burlington area, we had dinner at Martini's Grille. The restaurant is on the 4th floor of a refurbished building, and the space is beautiful, with a large bar and beautiful views of the river. It was only our first visit, but we enjoyed our food very much, trying the pork chops, pizza, and their... More

I was a guest at Martini's this evening. We arrived while the sun was still up and sat facing the east across the Mississippi. The view was wonderful; watching the changing light highlight different aspects of the Illinois shore. We don't go to restaurants for just a nice view, however, it is a bonus. We skipped appetizers and ordered; I... More

Definitely recommend this place for a fancy night out. The hostesses were nice! Sat in a comfy booth. Nice view of the river. Our server did come to us 10 minutes later but not a big deal at all, considering how sweet she was to us. :) she was very attentive after that and was very polite. I ordered lobster... More

As the name suggests, the main drink is the martini. I tried a couple and was thoroughly impressed with the presentation and the taste. The staff was very helpful and made the business dinner special. The view is overlooking the Mississippi river. There is an outdoor bar, which would be great in the summer time.If you want a great time... More
