Mars 2112 is an out of this world dining and entertainment experience. A trip to the planet Mars is still generations away, but Mars 2112, is the next best thing for anyone longing to visit the Red Planet; or for anyone else looking for great food. This one-of-a-kind 35,000 sq. ft. bi-level, immersible environment provides an all-around atmosphere (with continuous big screen video projections of life on Mars), wherein you can enjoy a Martini at the Starbar, dine on Terraforming Tuna tostada or Ziggy Stardust's Spaghetti in the Crystal Crater, stroll down CyberStreet, or shop in the Martian Retail Galaxy.
The atmosphere was good. My kids loved the aliens. The place was dirty, the food was overpriced and not good at all. The $2.00 fee was a little ridiculous. It was a big disappointment. We will not be returning.
When you first walk in, you have to decide to either just walk thru some doors, or you can take a ride in a spaceship to the mars surface. With aliens surrounding you, a game room for hte kids to play while the food is cooking and a gift shop to inspire anyone minds. This place is great for kids of all ages and the adults that they become to be.
The $2.00 service charge was a little crazy but my kids LOVED IT!!!!!!!! We went during the week so there was no line. The space ship ride was cool(my 10 year old daughter loved it) the atmosphere is really cool red rock is everywhere. The service was great. Our waiter was really nice. My kids wanted to take pictures with the ailens so we requested to see them(no extra charge) they were cute and funny. The food was DELICIOUS but expensive. The portions are huge. I ordered nachos it came in a plate ful. I made my kids split chicken fingers and fries the portion was huge and delicious. Also only get water to drink($2.oo for a soda). I would recomend to get an appitizer for an adult and a chicken fingers for kids. My martian expirence was great!!!!
When my family and I went we thought that the place was cool and that the food was good but not great and that we loved the crazy marshion themed characters! The only thing that we really didn't like was that our space shuttle to go to mars wasn't working correctly so we only got the sound and not the movie. I would go back there again anytime though!! A must to do if you go to New York City! ( It's very close to most of the broadway shows) !!
My 8 year old son and I love this place. We visit NYC every year and every year my son wants to eat here. Its neat that you take a space ship to enter mars and then when you enter the restaurant there are aliens walking around and everything has a red glow. Deffinetly different. The food is pretty good with the NY price tag. An experience that you won't forget.
As with all restaurants, Mars 2112 has its good and bad points. It is an amazing place that looks like it literally came out of a scene of a Star Trek or a sci-fi movie. The waiter was very friendly and my young son loved the aliens who came by to talk with the kids. For a young child - who is more excited about being in a cool looking restaurant - than he is eating - Mars 2112 is a great place.
However, like many of the other reviewers, I found the food at Mars 2112 to be overpriced and not very good. My party had to send back two orders of ribs. In addition, my wife and I ordered burgers, and for
$ 16.00 (each) they came with minimal condiments and they were overcooked and dry.
Go to Mars 2112 if you want to eat in a restaurant that has a cool decor - and if you have young children - they will love it. But be prepared to spend a lot of money on sub-par food.
My kids went crazy after seeing the spaceship outside. They just had to go in. So we went and I am happy we did. The ambiance was out-of-this-world! The food was good, the arcade was tons of fun and my kids were happy. That's all I need to know.
