    Go there for the ambience but the food is far too overpriced for what you get. No sides or added extras like salad or fruit. Service was good but there are plenty other much better breakfast places out there!

    The food was terrible I don’t mind paying a lot for good food but the dinner costed me $ 200 and both my friend and I were very disappointed. Yet I had to leave a 15% tip for a waiter that seemed sleepy and tired and they took forever to bring our food when we were starving. The fact that I told them it was my friends birthday and all you guys had to offer is a lit candle in an empty cup that was so cheap. I’ve been to so many upscale places and we were offered dessert by a chef or a drink whatever a small gesture. I’ve been going to Marcus for a while now mainly for high tea/ lunch or brunch but it was my first time having dinner there and will definitely not be back for dinner. I had picadilly I was told the pasta is thinner than a regular spaghetti it turned super thick and didn’t taste good. My friend had the filet mignon it was tender but that taste was bitter. She also ordered a margarita and she said that was the worst she ever had and we had grilled octopus and the cabbage or salad was so bitter and didn’t mix well with the pesto so it taste horrible. I also I often tag you and post about it on social media giving you free publicity and many ppl I know went there because I recommended your brunch menu. Anyways the service is always pretty cold usually the managers are more welcoming but the waiters and waitresses are often tired or not so hospitable but I don’t mind as long as they got my order right and my meal is good.

    We were delighted by the service and the food -- and, of course, the location. However, the music was abysmal -- hardly music at all, just percussion repeated ad nauseam.

    Ordered the green salad - perfectly dressed. Also got the Hispaniola drank and the Piccadilly dish. The lobster pasta was richer than any dessert and delicious - loved the spice. For me it was light but a very nice touch with the cream. It was a luxurious meal during business travel.

    Outstanding service and food. However you pay the price for it. The first question they ask is if you want sparkling or still water. I understand the charge for sparkling but I got charged for flat as well. So from the beginning, whatever you choose is a money trap. I ended up spending over $20 on water…

    Menu en anglais alors que nous sommes francophones, pas de crème 10% pour le café, assiette de fruits coupés très chère pour $16.00 et salade de tomates très bonne mais beaucoup trop chère à $26.00. Rapport qualité/prix laisse à désirer.

    Awful…felt very let down. The “terasse” is just a cover balcony overlooking a rooftop of exhaust vents and an alley where noisy garbage trucks pick up bins…surrounded by plants around the perimeter. Food was expensive for the quality and lacking variety. Only one type of gluten free & dairy free option, no non-peanut butters. Most disappointing was our server. She was hard to flag down (at 7:30am!) and would look right by us. Chastised us for helping ourselves to a second bottle of water on the table when we couldn’t flat her down. Missed one of our orders and sneezed loudly right by the table. Just turned and didn’t really cover her nose. Unmasked. The bar and the bathroom designed are incredible at The Marcus. Whoever did them was fearless! But would we go back and dine at the terasse? No. Didn’t feel luxurious in the least.

    Table separation was comfortable and noise levels reasonable to have easy conversation. Tuna appetizer was outstanding and of course the diver sole for two was perfect and worth the cost. Cauliflower side, uniquely spices and roasted. We were too full to have dessert, but neighboring tables did and looked fantastic. Marcus was great

    The service is impeccable. Delicious sea food and cocktails. Can’t go wrong with the sashimi or oysters. Lobster pasta was also incredible. Suggest speaking to Sommalier to ensure you have the best wine with each course, worth the culinary experience!

    I don’t know why they ask for a comment/request, when they don’t even look at it. Had a special occasion (celebration of graduation) and had requested a small cake. When I later mentioned to the lady (because we had already taken the fix menu, which included dessert as well), she offered the coffee! Thanks, but that was not the point! Food was ok. As for service, being used to other FS, need to refine it further, because if we come to FS, it’s because we have certain expectations that comes with the brand.

    The brunch at Marcus is absolutely delicious. So many deep and thoughtful flavours in every plate. We were a party of four and had four different plates and YES I had a taste of them all. Like I wrote absolutely delicious.

    Noisy space, very bling bling. Tomato salad mediocre. Overripe tomatoes, too much juice drowned the EVOO. Excellent squid. Excellent sea bass. So so dessert. Wine list fitted the atmosphere (wines listed in order of price says enough) with some finds (white Jurançon, red Cretan). Open air terrace would be great for drinks and nibbles, but I would not recommend for a dinner unless it is to be seen.
