8 hours agoNEW I am wondering if Chef has changed. Been a few times before and was good. Last night I ordered the bavette et Frites and the steak was raw , sent back and still came back undercooked and absolutely no flavor at all....The aiolo was the same with no flavor and the French fries were also undercooked. I used to get vegetables with this dish but not this time. My friends fish was soggy and the pudding chomeur was dry. We had a reservation at 5 but we had ordered a few bottles of wine and appys before dinner and at dessert we were told we need to be out by 7 as they needed our table The only pleasant experience was the waitress who was amazing. Dont think we will be back.More

My girlfriends all got together here for a friend’s Birthday and were greeted very warmly. Service itself was good, waitress was good but we had to try and get attention a few times. 2 of my friends had the Steak and fries and neither were...cooked correctly, one was literally just rare vs the medium rare she ordered (so had to be sent back) and the other was also medium rare but she ordered medium. Both steaks had no flavour and no salt on table so couldn’t fix that. Fish and chips was also ok but again my friend just said the batter tasted like nothing, just bland. Then another one of us ordered salmon salad, said Salmon was ok, again not much flavour and it came with a pomegranate dressing but hardly any so had to catch the waitress for more. I ordered the escargot in a chimichurri sauce with butter and baked cheese. Came out all stuck together on a small plate and were so small and chewy. I have never been served escargot like that and definitely never have had some that were that tough. Mussels weren’t bad, flavour was different (red curry with chorizo sausage). Wasn’t a fan but again my choice so it tasted like description stated, last was the French pudding and it came out with just a little sauce on top and nothing else so was so very dry and crumbly. Very disappointed in the food here, heard great things, atmosphere was nice though but we were seated next to washroom. I would not say this is the #1 restaurant in Orléans by any means and would never go back.More

Suggested to my Boss and fellow managers that we have a working dinner outdoors. I suggested St Martha’s which advertised an outdoor patio under a great dining tent with palms, patio lights and a wooden floor. It exceeded my expectations with well docs tables (only...4 in total). Appetizers - charcuterie, escargots and salmon tartare were amazing. Everyone had the steak, except me. The stuffed chicken was delicious. Wine was lovely and affordable. I would have given 6* if I could.More

Patio was very busy for a Monday night. Despite this, there was only one server who was also responsible for the bar tending. Quite unacceptable. Very poor management planning! We felt very sorry for this young lady who was totally on her own serving approximately...10 tables. We can’t imagine how challenging this must have been for her and certainly could not blame her for delays as she did her best to provide efficient service. We ordered the chicken roulade which was very tasty.More

Our Friday night order of Fish and chips was fabulous. The fish arrived tender and warm, the fries were crispy. I totally recommend this place.

We dined on the patio with another couple. Tables were well spaced and appropriate measures were in place concerning use of masks and sanitizer. We ordered French Onion Soup, a burger with salad, fish and chips, cocktail, sangria and wine. The food was tasty and...the service was good. The total bill came to $85.50 before tax and tip. Lots of free parking.More

Usually the meal is excellent, this time we ordered skillets and they forgot to add the poached eggs to the skillet. They took the skillets back and put them under a warmer, by the time the eggs were cooked and the skillets brought back the...toast was cold. The skillets tasted great but forgetting a major component was a faux pas. Our server was very nice.More

We met with friends for dinner on a Tuesday. When we arrived a couple other tables were occupied, but the restaurant was surprisingly quiet. From the start our server seem impatient as we spent a bit of time chatting with our friends and didn't pick...up the menu immediately. We ordered drinks, and she returned twice to see if we were ready to order, then "adjusted " one of our menus, leaving it open on the table and explaining we should close our menus when we were ready to order ... oh dear. My plate of Spinach Ravioli in Cognac Cream Sauce was lacking: the sauce was more butter than cream, the filling ... bland, not sure where the spinach was, and my pasta was, sadly, under cooked - definitely not in the running for French cuisine. My husband had the burger and had no complaints. I should also note the restaurant was uncomfortably cold. A bit more attention to the comfort of guests would be appreciated - people were wearing coats and scarves, very unpleasant for fine dining. Our server just said they've been have problems with their heating system - no apology. There are a number of excellent restaurants & brew pubs in Orleans worth looking at; St-Martha's seems to be sliding down the ladder and may not even be a contender any more.More

We had been to St. Martha's Brasserie once before and weren't too impressed and were reluctant to go back. However, we were given a gift certificate that we had to use. So, off we went. We were greeted by a very friendly server who immediately...showed us to our table and took our drink orders, then our food orders. Food was very good, we ordered French onion soup, steak with frites and a pizza. Service and food were very good and all in all it was an improvement from our first visit.More
