A menu with pages of "martini's" to choose from. Dry, sweet, spicy, bold, you name it - they have it, and you'll love it! Over all the place is small and the HH is a huge steal so the place is typically crowded. The small plates have all been tasty and the service is fast and friendly for as busy as this place gets.
AMAZING! don't pay attention to reviews from 4 years ago! I went the other day it was amazing!
I always have a good time! – I've been going to Bartini for several years now with different groups of friends. It's one of the first places I recommend to people looking for a great happy hour.
I always have fun here... I love their large martini selection, there's always something fresh and new to try. The zesty cucumber is my current favorite. The ingredients are fresh and original; the drinks are notoriously weak. However, you can drink 3 at Bartini for the price of 1 with their happy hour pricing.
Love, Love the mini fondue with the mushrooms. The guy bartenders and servers are cute and playful. Word to the snotty: don't expect the world's best service when you're buying $3 martinis. Be reasonable.
HAPPY HOUR HEAVEN – SOOOOOOO I've only been twice once for happy hour, on ce on the regular menu... let me first say I LOOOOOOVE THIS PLACE!!!! but only on the happy hour menu... great deals... regular menu a little too spendy. but thats okay we love barrrrtini!!!!
Great happy hour but... – I've visited Bartini a few times now...I will definitely return for their awesome happy hour menu (cheap prices with decent tasting food). The $6 smoked cheddar fondue is their best deal - perfect for 2. Don't get the sausage or fruit plates to go with the fondue - not worth it. My wife loves their crab cakes...I think they're OK. The NY steak skewers are pretty decent.
Service is decent. Food and drink has always been served promptly (makes me think that the happy hour specials are pre-made to a certain extent...like the flat bread).
Do NOT get the dessert fondue. You will be sorely disappointed. For $14, I expected a good chocolate base - which ended up being way too dark. They also don't give you a lot of dipping items. We ordered the "rock road fondue" which came with "swirled marshmallow ganache." Um....marshmallow ganache is NOT just a few mini-marshmallows thrown on top.
Make sure to ask for drink specials during happy hour. Great drink specials...if you know what they are. Basic margarita cost us $8 but an elderflower martini was only $3.50....
Overall - only go here for happy hour. Don't get the dessert. Definitely get the smoked cheddar happy hour fondue.
are you kidding... – If you want water served in a million different ways in a martini glass... this is your place. If you want a real drink, order a beer. You can't water down something thats sealed in a bottle.
Bad experience, okay food, good...straws? – A friend and I stopped into Bartini a month or so ago for happy hour after hearing rave reviews. Unfortunately, we were SORELY DISSAPOINTED with the service. As it was pretty busy we sat at the bar, and the bartender asked to see our ID (good job doing your job). He then loudly told us we couldn't be there because we weren't of age, and, as the rest of the patrons were staring at us, told us to leave. Too bad we are, and a coworker awkwardly corrected his math. The bartender didn't didnt apologize, but instead ignored us the rest of the meal. It isn't like we were expecting to be comped or anything, but an acknowledgement of his embarassing mistake would have been in line. Perhaps he was embaressed, but it is more awkward if you just ignore customers who are a foot away from you on the other side of the bar. Anyways, the services was extremely slow for a simple happy hour. I don't care for the excuse of "it is being made fresh"...it doesn't take that long to make fondu or plate a salad. In short, the food was decent, but not worth the trouble of waiting and being insulted by the bartender.
Wonderful Service!! – I checked out the recommendations before visiting this establishment. From what I read I was prepared to have to wait a long time and the service to be lukewarm at best. However, Bartini staff was just the opposite. Four things that impressed me:
1. Their prices were amazing for happy hour.
2.They set up the outside seating for me even though they weren’t planning on setting all the tables and chairs up for the evening.
3.They let me take the table for an astonishing 3 hours with my friend even though our bill at the end was very small.
4.They brought us extra bread with our meal when we were out.
Great Happy Hour Spot! – Bartini is the perfect happy hour spot! As an avid Happy Hour researcher, follower, and regular, I feel that I know what to expect from a Happy Hour offering.
The drinks available are endless and absolutely delicious, and at $3-$4 you feel free to explore new flavors you may have restricted yourself from, in fear of paying $13 for a drink you may not like.
So stop by Bartini and put your usual lemon drop aside, try an herb infused martini or new fruity twist.
My Favorite Place for Drinks – I love Bartini. If it was a person, I would marry it, flaws and all. They have some of the best drinks that I have had so far. Their Happy Hour is amazing- half price for a full size drink. Amazing!! I hear it tends to get crowded, but I've never really experienced too much of a crowd. I go there for my birthday every year and whenever else I can get a chance. It's small, but the decor is awesome- black walls and green lights. $7.00-$8.00 per drink, which is pretty standard for most places in good ol' P-Town.
Fantastic place – I came into bartini this last Mon with a large table of girlfriends. I came in because it was two of my best friends birthdays. Our group was very loud, we had separate checks, and could have been a difficult table. We, on the otherhand, we very well taken care of and had a fantastic evening! The drinks are incredible, the food was very good, and the service impecable! I would come back to this bar often if I lived in the area. Myself, along with all the women in my group would definately recommend this place to anyone who enjoys going out!!! Thank u bartini
