We booked a table for two for Valentine's Day. The decor is very nice, there are some nice booths and the artwork is cool! The food was very good. Unfortunately the experience was dampened by our table. Because it was Valentines day they had squeezed an extra table in right by where the staff clocked in orders. There were servers next to our table all night. We asked for another table but were told the only other option was to sit at the bar. Disappointing as the food and service was very good. They shouldn't have squeezed in an extra table. Other than that, the restaurant seems really nice. Wouldn't go again though as they were more concerned with squeezing in extra tables than creating a nice experience for the customers.

We were a group of 8 for a Bachelorette dinner on the weekend. Not only was the Staff amazing and accommodating, I'm talking about you-Addison and Sean, but the food was AMAZING! the atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for, classy and inviting. Since we were a group we opted for the family style offerings, what a great idea!!! and their fried cauliflower... It was so good we ordered a second one.

I would 100% recommend Marben as a must try!!!

The food was ok, there is no much service . The waitress just hand me the coat from upstairs. That was my birthday brunch.

We went for the new years set menu. The food was absolutely amazing. The lamb with the crusty skin was very flavorful. The staff was also extremely courteous. We had a table of 8 and two people were about 45 minutes late but no one ever came to pressure us to start without them or reminded us of our time limit (on new years).

Food was overpriced and not very good. Pheasant and lamb was ordered. Ambience is great. More for business type atmosphere.
