One again we had a great meal. It was our first time there for lunch. Very nice creative meals and just the right size for lunch. Great service as well.

We had dinner on a Saturday night for our anniversary and quite enjoyed ourselves. The restaurant is nice inside: clean and modern. However, if you are looking for a private table for a romantic evening, the tables are more bistro style—no booths or private corners. Staff were lovely: thoughtful, attentive and highly professional. The food was mostly incredible. We started with the Mushrooms on Toast and Lobster Tartine and I would return for either specifically. Entrees were the Arctic Char and Ribeye. The Char dish had nice flavour but overall I would not order again... my partner had the ribeye and said it might have been the best steak he’d ever eaten. Desert was the Lemon Tart and Beignets: lemon tart didn’t need to be as tart as it was, but the beignets were fun to share. Overall would return or recommend.

Awesome food and great service. My husband and I started with the steak tartar which was so flavourful. Then we each tried one of the specials that night. The first a very nice artic char with bulgar wheat and veggies. The other a nice beef with an amazing risotto. Everything was very tasty and served by an amazing lady.

Although our service was great the food was very disappointing. I had the special which was duck and it was very salty. Our friend had the game hen and his was also salty. My other friend had the Arctic char and it she thought it was just okay. My husband had the steak which was very tasty and delicious but it was served with French fries which seemed like a total lack of thought. We will not go back as there are other restaurants we would like to try.

We love going to the Marc as a family or just for date night as we did on Friday. It was great to be able to have a wonderful dinner on the patio. We especially loved the escargot/bone marrow and fois gras as well as the recommended bottle of wine! Thanks Patrick

Great as always. My fiance and I went for my birthday and sat on the patio. I hadn't realized before that the patio was there, but it is very nice and barely had any street noise. The food was very good, and so was the service.

We are living in London and have 5-week stay in Edmonton, The Marc was our perfect ending/ last dinner during our stay. Have been to Paris several times, tried quite a few local bistro in Paris and France, The Marc's signature dish "steak & fries" is on top of our steak experience. Perfect medium rare rib-eye, great quality in terms of food and customer service, freshly made donut would be a must too, LOVELY dining experience!!

Anniversary. Great service and food. Escargot on bone au jus was unexpected surprise hit. Beef and char plates always a guaranteed success.

I hadn't been back to The Marc for sometime and my dinner left me wondering why I had waited so long to come back. We were seated outside on the patio which is nicely shaded so even on a hot day it was comfortable. Food was excellent, the char was prepared very well and waiters were extremely polite and knowledgable of the menu.

Ask for Lu as a server. With Patrick at the helm you know you are going to get a great meal with great service but with Lu it goes to exceptional service. She is attentive without being obtrusive, knows her specials and even better knows which items on the wine list pair perfectly with the meal you are having. Count on me and my wife going back again and again and again!

Since we had a reservation, seating was very quick. The hostess was very pleasant and our server was friendly. The duck and chicken were both cooked perfectly and were very tasty. Our server checked in with us enough periodically through the meal. Next time I wish that they would ask us where we would like to sit as 50% of the restaurant was empty (including the patio) and they sat us right next to the noisy kitchen. Overall, great place for a date night.

We enjoyed our anniversary dinner at The Marc very much. The food was good and the service excellent. We recommend this restaurant highly. The only downside is the limited on-street parking. If you have more than one car, bring the smaller one!

The Marc is one of my favourite restaurant - lunch or dinner, a drink at the.bar - it never fails! We went for a “birthday” dinner with my son and his girlfriend - first time for them at The Marc - and it didn’t disappoint. From the olives and frites as starters to the lamb and duck confit to the deserts ... deliciously tasting! The restaurant presents an atmosphere that is inviting and inclusive of everybody with staff that you will enjoy to engage with!!
