This small family owned restaurant makes lovely Mexican food. Portions are sized that you do not leave hungry and the price is right. The staff are very welcoming and we felt that they really cared about us as customers. We were immediately served chips, salsa, and bean dip. The carnitas enchilada was loaded with meat and well complemented with beans... More

Ambiance counts. It was a cold overcast winter day outside and it was cold and a bit dark inside. Average American Mexican menu fare. Nice service.

Martha's is a full service Mexican restaurant that has excellent Mexican-American food. They have my favorite salsas; excellent fast service; and, most importantly, good food. They have a back room/patio that makes dining there even more enjoyable.

The atmosphere and service were friendly and efficient. Nice variety of plates on the menu. Good price in town where so many places are 50% higher. Food was plentiful .. but wasn't very stove hot .. and lacked that special umph since it needed a bit more spices. I will try it again to see if I was just there... More

According to the clipped out news articles on the wall and their own note saying thanks for 17 years of business (hopefully, not because they are closing), the restaurant is family owned and possibly in the second generation running the place. Though I was early for dinner and walked into a place where I was the second occupied table for... More

When I'm nearby I like to stop in at Martha's for some scrumptous Mexican food and comfortable seating in their small covered patio at the back of the restaurant. Tables there give you a view of the lush greenery and Mexican decorations, and since the patio is covered and sits snugly in the back you don't have to worry about... More

Ordered the Menudo which was pretty good. It came with all the traditional fixings, oregano,onions,limes and chilies. The tripa was clean and had good flavor. Family ordered enchiladas suisa chicken, kids chicken burrito, chicken and shrimp and chicken tamale with shredded beef tacos. For desert we had the pumpkin flan. Yummy dinner.

Just returned from New Mexico and there was nothing to compare to Martha's. Martha's is more Caribbean Mexican and isn't so spicy that you can't tell what you ate. Have taken visitors from Texas to Martha's and they thought it was the best.

Hidden in plain site but we found it. They have very nice inside and patio seating. We got one of the upper level patio tables with a nice garden view. Dinners were delivered amazingly fast, hot and well presented. The food was generous and wonderfully authentic. Service was superb. A great stop after a day of wine tasting.

I really like Martha's Old Mexico in Sebastopol. The food is always good, the decor is fun and bright, and the servers are nice. I've only eaten inside, but have been told by friends that the outside patio seating is also nice. The chips and salsa are good too. We've been eating here since the first week it opened, worth...
