We found the service lacklustre, there was no attention to special dietary needs at our table, no explanation of what they were serving us, seemed a little too busy to be bothered with us. We ordered the seafood tower and while the quality of the food was what you would expect for this level of dining experience, we were not wowed by any of the sauces or condiments- we’ve had much better seafood experiences at other Montreal establishments.
We also ordered the tomahawk steak with a few extra sides. Again, didn’t find the flavours wowed us, the quality of the food seemed decent but the sweet potato chips were over salted.
Back to the service nobody seemed to care whether we enjoyed our dining experience. A woman came around to check on us but seemed she didn’t even give us a chance to respond as she was in such a hurry to do her mandatory check in with all of the tables.
We wouldn’t rush back, Café Boulud is definitely a step up.

Dear Jacksonmon, We are going to share your review immediately with our hospitality and kitchen teams.

Nevertheless, we do believe you when you say your experience wasn't up to par. We are still going through growing pains and we apologize if we didn't excel.

We stayed the weekend at the Four Seasons. (Home to Marcus.) We ate breakfast there twice and dinner once. Breakfasts were very good with limited choices. Dinner was very good with one exception. You can't call a half rack of lamb ribs lamb chops. My wife had pan seared scallops with a pear sauce and thought they were excellent.

Service was good but needs improvement. (The restaurant has only been open since June.)

Nous avons aimé notre expérience au Marcus quoique notre réservation était à 21h30 et que nous avons finalement pu s'asseoir seulement à 22h30 pour manger. Pour patienter, on nous a proposé de la nourriture et des verres, nous avons apprécié l'attention, mais n'empêche qu'en assoyant à 22h30, nous étions plus brusquer pour commander puisque les cuisines fermaient. Je comprends que les gens qui étaient assis à la table que nous devions prendre prenaient leur temps pour payer et partir, mais nous avons pu s'asseoir une heure plus tard à laquelle notre réservation était ...

Nous avons beaucoup aimé le service au bar, le barman était attentionné et très sympathique.

Beautiful place, very elegant/classy.. the food is ‘ok’ at best, not MONTREAL worthy..
The food also came out super fast from when we ordered it, which means most of it was already premade.. 3 course meal for 3 of us, took 40 mins from sitting down to finishing all meals. We actually had to tell the server to slow down.

We are staying at the Four Seasons and decided to patronize Marcus Restaurant. Service needs a lot of work. There are staff EVERYWHERE yet your server checks on you at random and forgot part of my order. There aren’t enough menu options considering the quality of the hotel.

Contrived and overpriced. I have been to many great restaurants and Marcus is not one of them. It is an example of the power of marketing and a captured audience at a Four Seasons Hotel. The food was unimaginative. The salmon served plain on the plate was humorous in that there was no seasoning or aesthetic to the presentation. Service was overly orchestrated. Staff were merely following the management guidance. The Lambchops were of appetizer size. The only OK item we had was the special appetizer - the egg and the tomato salad were serviceable. Noise level was ok and we were accommodated in the seating. So service was fine, but the food is over hyped. In fact the hotel for being brand new was a major disappointment. One last comment - the restaurant décor was closer to an American Denny's chain than a top upscale restaurant.

Marcus
Responded on November 2, 2019

Dear thomasD, We are disappointed by this review, but we accept it as your sincere opinion. Four Seasons hasn't been to Montreal in decades and chef Samuelsson's reputation precedes him. Naturally, the hotel came with big expectations and people and media talking about it, but we are not focused on hype. Our only concern is to make certain we deliver a great restaurant for you and we intend to keep at it. Kind regards, Simon Thibeault, Director of Restaurants, Four Seasons Hotel Montreal
