Service is subpar – The other night, I grabbed a burger at Martell's. Burger was decently good. Service was appalling. Don't waste your time there.
Our spot to watch the game – We wanted to watch the 2004 World Series without a predominantly Bosox fan base. Luckily, we were recommended to come to Martell's. A nicely decored restaurant on the corner of 2nd and 83rd. However, we were a party of four seated right next to the large screen television so my perspective was poor. Food is primarily of Italian fare served in large portions. Good for a family affair.
Service Without a Smile – Don't attempt to go here on a Sunday for brunch. The waitress took our order and then never came back again. When we asked the hostess what happened were told the food was never picked up - OH REALLY??!! Duh, thanks. Then we were told that the waitress was in the kitchen arguing with them. Bottom line.. no food. Also the people sitting next to them never had their dirty plates picked up for at least 20 minutes, after the watiress served the food she never came back. Needless to stay we didn't stay around to find out when she did.
The Monday and Thursday evenings are great for good service and a knowledgeable bartender. Even in an off night this place was fun with friendly UES natives and visitors. PQ was friendly, introduced me to a new drink, and helped me pick a good spot to take a second date. The bathrooms were so-so but the music selection was good and kept the ambience juiced.
It is an unusually friendly spot on the UES and I plan on going back often.
What you expect for upper east – Decent pub on the upper east....music selection was mostly 80's stuff for a Sat Nite....not my style. Was there with a big group, if I wasn't there with a large group of friends, I would have left after a drink or two.
Pints of Bass were 5.50 and the mixed drinks were done well.
DJ SMOKES ALOT – Great wedding music, my mom had the best time. There was so much smoke coming from the DJ booth so I couldn't request "Footloose", my favorite!!!!
How can this place exist? – If you're a sophomoric wannabe yuppie, this is the place for you. Bad food. Bad service. Bad attitude. Pretentious clientele.
