Fodor's Review

The original chef here was influenced by Caribbean flavors, hence the name of this one-room restaurant with a tropical courtyard. These days, though, the Martinique Bistro is known for its French cooking, including the orange-scented pumpkin bisque, wild mushroom beignets, and oven-roasted, cane-syrup-infused duck breast options on the menu. Make sure to budget for wine—the excellent list is continually updated. Dinner menus change every three months. The corner table

in Martinique's courtyard is now a legendary marriage-proposal spot. Friday lunch is seasonable.

What a pleasant Surprise!

Martinique was recommended by our innkeeper. We sat in the beautiful outdoor patio. The atmosphere was relaxed and pleasant. The service was efficient and friendly. the food was excellent. I had homemade pheasant sausage as an appetizer. It was unique and tasty. It was served with salad greens and two different types of mustard. I had the brazed lamb shank which was terrific. Flavorful and falling off the bone without very much fat. It was

served with white beans in a delicious sauce. My wife had the jumbo shrimp in papaya curry sauce. It was sublime . . . tasty and beautifully presented. She's somewhat hard to please and she loved it. Martinique is elegant without being pretentious. While the inside dining room is pleasant and atractive with plenty of elbow room, the outdoor patio is the place to eat. BTW, I thought the prices were quite reasoonable. I would highly recommend this place to even the most discriminating diner.
