    Still a new restaurant/piano bar so not very busy but I'm sure it will pick up. Very nice decor and great server and drinks.

    We planned date night - I love martinis and oysters and my husband wanted to go even though he doesn’t enjoy either. I thought the menu was very sparse. To be a martini place and only have a menu with only 6 martinis on it was disappointing. You’d think with this as their specialty, they’d have lots to pick from. Also, the food menu was very small. The waitress was very nice and helped me create a fruity martini for her to make. We ordered oysters and the Brie, bacon, and apple flatbread. The martini was good, the oysters were amazing (why I gave 3 stars for the food), but the flatbread was awful. It was cold, and the bread was floppy and chewy. We ended up going downstairs to Upper Deck for food and more drinks - and that was amazing!

    We were disappointed that the Dueling Piano's was no longer. The singer they had did not match the crowd/atmosphere. She had a great voice, however you could barely hear her and her music type was more for a romantic evening...not for a Saturday night out at The Martini Bar. They need livelier music for an upbeat crowd.

    My husband and I went for an early Valentine’s Day treat. He had a martini which was good, but $20 for a cocktail in Parker seems exorbitant. They had no domestic beer and had to call downstairs for wine. The setting is very nice and the music and charcuterie board were both good. At those rates we won’t visit a second time.

    Overall great experience. The custom drinks are expensive but if you order off the main spirits menu it’s half the price. Delicious oysters and a fantastic pianist/singer. Can’t wait to go back!

    Signature martinis were amazing and the dueling pianos were great! The waitress was hard to catch but quick with our orders once we caught her. Can't wait for warmer weather so we can enjoy the patio.

    Food is limited. Liked everything but noise level was unbearable, then the pianist started playing on top of that. Room desperately needs some noice reducing panels and other acoustic softening.

    First, this place is tiny, so make reservations if you want to get a teeny table. Parties larger than 4 people might want to consider one of the other restaurants at The Laszlo; both Rick’s and The Upper Deck (located on the 2nd floor) have decent-sized bars. The Monday night that 3 of us went, Cathy Paz was on one of the two infant-grand pianos and she was great, but it was karaoke night, and that was pretty awful. Not sure if this a regular thing (they had only been open a week), but I would check. The place is too small for bad...maybe even good...karaoke; there is no way to escape it and it can be pretty loud. I am hoping in the future there will be slightly better entertainment. The food was hit and miss and very expensive. Also, there is very little variety. The brie and apple flatbread was yummy but the charcuterie plate was rather sad. When they say “assorted breads” they mean a few crackers. Two people are not going to be highly satisfied. The drinks were all delicious but the amuse bouche were rather lame: a small amount of salted cashews in two cases (not the chocolate almonds promised) and some chocolate for a third. The drinks, like the appetizers, were quite expensive. For 3 of us with 2 appetizers and 5 drinks, the bill came to $160 (before tip). That seems rather high, even for such an exclusive (i.e., small) venue. The service was pretty attentive, once the waitress realized we were there, which took a good 30 minutes. She did check on us regularly and we never felt abandoned, once discovered. I might go back again, but maybe only for a short time before or after dinner. It doesn’t seem like a place to just hang out. One of the other bars might be better. Regarding logistics, parking was difficult. I couldn’t even find a dedicated parking lot. Valet parking is sorely needed. Also, I never saw the main entrance to the hotel and ended up coming through Rick’s, which must be quite irritating to diners.

    We are excited about new options in Parker, we may have visited a week or two early, look forward to our next visit, firmly believe the staff is eager to provide a great experience.

    I had the best experience! It was my birthday and I had made reservations at the Martini’s on the Half Shell. Reservations were very easy to make. The atmosphere is beautiful. Much smaller than I though, however, it is a boutique hotel. I LOVE the dueling piano bar, so much fun. The food was amazing. I had the charcuterie board and lamb bacon Oysters. Our server Abby made sure we had an amazing experience. I’m so excited to go back. The hotel is just beautiful!

    The best thing about this place was the music. The couple playing the pianos were great. We arrived a little bit before our reservation and just checked in with the hostess-she was not very friendly and abruptly told us we would have to wait to be seated (we didn’t ask to be seated early). She gave no suggestion on where to wait maybe in another area in hotel or the other restaurant. We came back at our reservation time and sat near the stage. It took awhile for the waitress to take our drink order. The drinks are very expensive. 20.00. We ordered some food and didn’t receive the items until an hour later. At this point it wasn’t that busy-empty tables. I get this place is new-working our the kinks-but the concept isn’t new and even being a new place some of the issues should not have been present ie bad attitude of hostess and hour wait for food. I would recommend this place if the issues are taken care of. We will try this place again in the future.

    Too small venue order meat and cheese tray. Crackers were soggy, meats and cheese no flavor and not fresh. Slow service. Leaving saw waiter carrying food up stairs to deliver with folks walking down. Disgusting.

    Service was a little slow, but I’m guessing they were not set up for as many people that showed up. I Hope in the future things will be better, as this is a cool place. The lemon drop martini was very good.
