I went with my kids to Mars 2112 and loved it. The food was overpriced and 'so-so' but the atmosphere was fantastic. The kids wanted to go there again on our next trip to the city, and I had the -- Been There, Done That -- feeling. It's a great place to go for a one-of-a-kind experience with the kids, but you shouldn't go there for the food.

After reading other reviews about Mars 2112, I can honestly say I was disappointed. First of all they add a $2.00 charge per person to your meal for who knows what. We had a group of 7 and they also added an 18% gratuity to our bill bringing the total to almost $190.00. Personally, I found the service adequate at best, hardly worth 18%, maybe 12%. The dinner menu was limited, consisting of several entrees and a page of sandwiches. Most of our group had burgers or chicken clubs. Our ketchup bottle was empty as was one we took from and adjacent table. The atmosphere was also lacking in my opinion. Our table was a fold out with folding plastic chairs and a plastic table cloth. We sat on the upper floor of the establishment. The walls were orange painted artificial rock lacking any sort of Martian scenery or decoration. I felt more as though I was eating inside a volcano than on the surface of Mars.

What a wonderful treat mars 2112 was! From the space shuttle trip entrance to mars, to the molecular regenerator exit to earth, it was all an exquisite dining experience. The atmosphere was very well designed, with an illuminated two story tree and a starry sky on the ceiling. There was even so much detail as shooting stars! If you want to enjoy this wonderful restaurant to the fullest, I suggest ordering 3 to 4 appetizers for a partu of 4 or more. All of the appetizers my party of 4 ordered were VERY delicious! I would reccommend the quasar quesadillas,magellan mozzerella sticks, and nebula chili nachos. They were all tasty and very satisfying. The one main thing that added to the whole experience was the 3 hilarious martian creatures roaming around the tables. Two of them came over to personally welcome us, even though they were silent martians! I even danced with Q-T-Pie, one of the martians! The only bad thing was that the third alien was so friendly and took a lot of time at the other tables, so she didn't come see us. But we did venture over to see her and get a picture. We were also a little disappointed that the martians weren't speaking their native language, two out of the three didn't talk at all. Although, They were so fun to interact with, that it didn't matter. Overall, the service was superb, the waiters were very friendly, the food was excellent, and the bathrooms even had a candy dish! I would definetly reccommend this special intergalactic voyage for anyone looking to have a lot of fun and to leave happy and well-fed. Wow, We loved Mars 2112! It is truely a one-of-a-kind, out of this world experience!

The restaurant's theme is exciting and only worth experiencing ONCE for the kids. Our kids thought the place was cool. The servers were very friendly. Everything else was disappointing. Be prepared to be charged an additional $2 per person for an amusement park-like cosmic shuttle to the restaurant area (through the other door). Once we "landed" in the Mars restaurant only two of the three costumed Martians appeared to greet dining guests. It would have been nice if all of the hosts and hostesses were dressed in UFO attire. The menu was limited and the food was tasteless and a bit overpriced. Don't order the Parsec Steak Sandwich w/ fries. A day later I'm still dental flossing my teeth to remove the stringy steak fat. As an adult earthling (and one who loves to eat), I guess I shouldn't expect much from UFO chefs. Visit Mars 2112 once ONLY with kids and try another restaurant.

The evening starts out with and eternal wait to board the famed space ship hosted by an irritated employee who recites her lines in a “I-can’t-wait-until-my-shift-is-over” attitude. Dinner is next and the menu is limited and boring. I ordered the chicken parmesan that came with pasta. My pasta arrived dried out and hard. The chicken was tough and dry with little flavor. My daughter’s chicken fingers were equally dry and lacking taste. The desserts were fabulous but over priced as was the entire meal. We spent over $150 for two adults and two children and left hungry. Our waitress, a lovely girl, was fabulous and did offer to inform the manager of our disappointing food experience. We also had to ask for the aliens to approach our table to talk to our children. Of note, the “Cutie Pie” alien was very knowledgeable about the solar system and was quite educational. The game room had several games out of order and the gift shop was very overpriced; even by New York standards! (we are New Yorkers!)

Went with high expections. Loved the idea of a "theme" meal. The voyage to Mars was fun and the beginning atmosphere was really cool. Once we were seated the "coolness" wore off. For such a huge space the seating was cramped. My seat had a huge rip in the cushion which just turned me off. Our waiter was friendly, but not too helpful. We ordered appetizers (the sampler) which came quickly but were not good at all. The ribs were tough and grisly, the chicken salad was "typical" and the other things were hohum. The meals came out quickly. The childrens mac and cheese looked dry. The cheeseburgers we ordered were served with a tomato that had so little color at first I thought they were "yellow" tomatos. The rest of the food was nondescript. To sum it up we are a family of eaters and no one cleaned their plate. I would go to say that you went but only get an appy or drink then leave. Not worth the money you spend on a meal. (very expensive for type of food)

We went on a Saturday night. Our party included 3 people. We only waited about 30 minutes and during our wait we sat at the "Mars Bar". The Bartender was funny and helpful. Our waiter was super and the martian characters were cute. The food was supprisingly good even with a picky 5th grader at the table. We would definitely reccomend it to a family or even some adults looking for some fun dining.
