  • "Excellent service - food wonderful as always. I did order beef well done and had to send it back for further cooking but that happens to me almost everywhere - chefs do not like to cook meat (or fish) well done. Would like to see them go back to the dip for the plantains they use to serve. Look forward to the summer - perfect outdoor dining."

  • "We enjoyed finding this small neighborhood restaurant during our visit to Seattle. The service was attentive and unhurried, the food choices inventive and delicious from appetizer to dessert. We will be back."

  • "The food was incredible. We went for Restaurant Week and ordered from the prix fix menu. We both got the cevice as an appetizer. It was too bland, but the plantain chips used to scoop it up were incredible. We both ordered the snapper for our main dish and it was PERFECT. The fish had a salty crust on it and was cooked perfectly. It was accompanied by greens and a parsnip puree. Both are desserts were really good (bread pudding and strawberry sorbet). I would highly recommend the bread pudding. Our drinks were also perfect. Our server wasn't all that great. She didn't seem present or engaged. Even though our particular server wasn't great, I gave it 5 stars because the food and drink were SO GOOD!!"

  • "This was my second time in this restaurant and I was even more impressed than the first time. It was the first time for two of the five persons in our party and they were totally blown away by the steak entree and a dessert called Chocolate something or other. I am vegetarian and chose something called Kayla's Kichatri (sp?) with a side order of broccoli. In three words, I LOVED IT!"

  • "I went to Marjorie for the first time as part of Seattle Restaurant Week and had a great time. My dinner companions had frequented Marjorie when it was downtown and were already sold. I love little gems like this that are lively with a bit of eclectic funk.The pre~fixe menu was innovative and had very complimentary courses. The daily menu was also wonderful not to mention a great cocktail and wine list. I'm sure to go back for good food, fun ambience and friendly service."

  • "We dined during Restaurant Week. The jerk pork entree was classy and had just the right burn, enhanced by the hot pepper dipping sauce and the Caribbean-style peas 'n' rice and greens. The seared sole was seared snapper the night we dined, but also first-rate. Only flaw is the seriously expensive wine list. There's no excuse to have just ONE bottle under $40 in a restaurant where regular entrees are mostly under $25. We did take the $36 Prosecco rosé, which did fine throughout the meal and felt festive."

  • "Marjorie is such a great little restaurant. Food, service and atmosphere were all wonderful. I can't wait to go back when the weather is warmer and the garage door walls are open. There is also a cute little patio."

  • "We've been somewhat regulars at Marjorie, and just love the place. Donna (the owner) is a charming host, and her staff are always on top of everything. Our meal there last week was delightful, and the best dining there yet. The Spring dish of stinging nettle pasta was spectacular. We highly recommend this dining venue!"

  • "It has narrow menu. It is a fun place to go, but are never satisfied with the food."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We met the owner, it's farm-to-table (I think mostly at least), and the food was fantastic. There doesn't seem to be an overall theme to the place, but that's good when you have people who are in the mood for anything or aren't all in the mood for one type. I will go back for sure! Not great for kids I don't think; the space is tight. There's an outdoor area that I bet is AMAZING in the summer."

  • "There was a large group of us celebrating a birthday and each and every one of us not only had fun but each of us raved about our wonderful service and food. The owner spent some time talking with us which was an added bonus. I feel like we were treated as real guests and we all would definitely return for another fabulous time!"

  • "Came here with my husband for the first time Saturday night. We had a reservation, but seats at the bar beckoned. Really enjoyed talking with the bartender, who made me a delicious blood orange margarita and was helpful with food recommendations. I ordered the stinging nettle fettuccine and my husband had the Stokesberry Farm chicken. Both were phenomenal. Wonderful overall experience. We will be back!"

    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Good food, interesting menu. Like Italian meets Indian, but rather than "fusion" it's a compilation of options from both genres. But what stood out about our experience most was what occurred when we first arrived: a young woman entered the dining room from the back area and embraced a cook in the open kitchen who was wearing a SeaHawks jersey (not particularly what you want to see your cooks wearing for a nice dinner...), and the two of them started hugging/smooching/etc. First thing we see when we enter, visible to everyone. It was completely unprofessional, and that kind of carelessness for professionalism makes you wonder about the care they give your food. I would say Marjorie is just okay, but probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone."

  • "Simply awful. The service was rude, the food was subpar, and the ambiance was horrible."

  • "Special Valentine's Day menu was worth the price. The quality, flavor and presentation was worth the set price. Not many restaurants in Seattle can pull this off as nicely, we will be back again soon."

  • "This is a fun neighborhood restaurant. We had a nice night out. My only issue was the salt of the sauce on the Sole dish. I was disappointed it was salty."

  • "Heard about this restaurant from a friend and decided to make a reservation. The property is taken of good care and clean. Inside, the atmosphere is very warming and inviting. Good seating arrangements. Food was AMAZING! This is not your average "American food" restaurant. This restaurant has a daily menu of freshly made to order plates. Everything was very fresh and tasted amazing. I call them "the banana chips with salsa", those were just delish. Service is great too. The only thing I wish is the food was served a bit faster but can understand it taking a bit because everything is made to order, they don't have plates of food laying around. Definitely coming back and will pass on my word to friends! You guys rock! Thank you, Serg"

  • "We ate there during the Super Bowl so there was no crowd and I can't assess the noise. The food was delish! The staff was friendly, thoughtful, helpful and informed. The ambiance was perfect - as expected from the photos. Plantain chips, papusas. . . So many good appetizers we made a meal of them. Can't wait to go back! Yum!"

  • "Both the bread pudding and plantains chips came highly recommended by friends and I have to agree! I had the duck, which was delicious. Bravo, Chef Dustin!"

  • "We met our friends at Marjories to celebrate their wedding. The place is cozy, the staff friendly and helpful, the food delicious. We had a long evening starting with a couple of appetizers including the famous plantain chips. Donna, the owner, came out to talk with us and gave an update on how getting them to market is going. We have mutual friends so it was a delight to finally meet her. I don't drink so had one of their mocktails made with lime and coconut juice, it was very tasty. The main courses were enjoyed by everyone, we had pasta, fish, duck, all great, as were the deserts. They make their own ice cream, and we had that day's special, chocolate smoked chiplotle, Yum! We left full and satisfied."

  • "I highly recommend this restaurant. Everything about the evening was great. The owner comes out and chats with eveyone to make sure they're happy and satisfied. Met many return customers and people that have followed her throughout her move here in Seattle. That alone speaks volumes for this happy place. Will definitely go back."

And, all meals came out at relatively the same time -- No easy feat! Bravo Marjorie! Thanks for making this a special evening."

The only drawback is the place is small & tables are very close together - more a European feel. Would definitely recommend!"

  • "We love Marjorie and have been many times, sometimes sitting at the bar for dinner or if our party is bigger, it the back room, which is cozy and much quieter than the front room. Our service was great and so was our waitress, apps were delicious, but we were somewhat disappointed in our main meals for the first time. One person in our party had the duck and rated it "excellent" but the other three gave the main course just an "ok" rating. We will return to Marjorie, but this was the first time we were so so on our main course."

  • "Went to Marjorie for SRW because from what I saw on Yelp, it was a pretty popular place with great food and is normally $$$. I had never heard of it but had walked by the main intersection a few times. It is nestled underneath an apartment/condo complex and looks like a nursery (plants). I'm normally not a fish person but I decided to get the seared rockfish and it was SO BUTTERY. It was probably the best fish I've ever had: not fishy tasting and very buttery. This place is a must-go!"
    Dined on 10/17/2013
  • "A friend and I went here for dinner for Restaurant Week. The food was delicious -- and it came out of the kitchen quickly. The problem was that we felt very rushed by the waitress. While she was very polite and attentive, we were not even two bites into dessert when she delivered the check ("No rush, I'll take care of it when you're ready"). We're used to waiting until we're actually done with dessert to get a check and maybe check in with us to see if we wanted coffee or anything else before delivering the bill. I understand wanting fast turn around for Restaurant Week but I'm sure they could have done it a bit more subtly. Other than that, the experience was great."
