Great steaks and sea food. Home of the original chicken lips. Great service a little pricey for Burlington but well worth it,

This is the place to go if you want a very good fine dinning experience. The steaks and sea food are out of this world. Beautiful view of the river!! The night lights are spectacular also.

If half stars were available, I'd give Martini's a 3 1/2. It's a 4- or 5-star in Burlington, but a solid 3 1/2 compared to where I typically eat in Denver and other bigger cities. Being vegetarian in Iowa isn't an easy thing to do. Martini's had good salad options, and the margherita pizza had really good flavor. The wine... More

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
