    We eat here quite often. The food is always great but they seem to always run out of something! that can range from bread to steaks! For some reason it's always one waiter who is running the show which turns a 1 hour dinner into 3 because he is all over the place. He tries to manage it all but on a busy night it's not a one person job. The food keeps is coming back! Great job chefs!!

    The ambiance was great, it's a nice energetic spot, without being too noisy. But waiting for an hour for a 7:30 reservation without much acknowledgement, put a damper on the evening. Once seated however, the service was good and the food pretty terrific!

    I always make sure to visit Marmont during Restaurant Week. This year, I brought along 4 friends and we were all highly satisfied with our food. The selections available cannot be beat and the taste was delicious as usual. We chose to sit at the bar and unfortunately, the bartender working on 9/16/14 was not professional at all. He had an extremely smart mouth, took so long to provide an additional set of silverware that I just took one from another table, and sent my to go bag home with my girlfriend and hers to me. Other than the bartender, the outing was pleasant.

    Their crab soup is delicious and so were the cheesesteak spring rolls and calamari. I was so full from lunch that I couldn't eat all my dinner. but I took it home and finished it the next day. The steak was just as juicy and perfect after heating it up as it was when I had a few bites at dinner.

    Our server was nice and attentive, even though she was 8 months pregnant and likely did not want to be on her feet all night. For the restaurant week prices it was worth it but at full price it would be a stretch. They did give full portions and 4 courses for Restsurant week though.

    I've been to Marmont a few times, many times for restaurant week. They have excellent food and service. The only "issue" is during restaurant week they are packed so it gets very loud. They are very prompt at seating and serving despite the busy crowd. I'm always happy and satisfied after eating at Marmont. Happily Left the waitress over 20% tip for great service. I can't wait to go back

    I never write reviews but I couldn't hold back this time. Marmont was awesome!! The server was great despite being pregnant(although I felt she was doing to much running around for a pregnant woman) she held down half of the place with ease. The food was phenomenal. I got the ribeye and it was cooked to perfection. I will definitely be returning and I have been recommending it to others since I left.

    We decided to try this restaurant and we were pleased with the food. Steaks, apps, soups and desserts were all good. Not one of the top steaks in the city but good for the price. The service started out good but then got really slow and awkward as the restaurant got crowded.

    It really was a bad steak and I'm not a big complainer, honestly. It was just very charred on the outside and still mooing on the inside. My husband made a better rib eye at home last night, and it only cost us $23.00 for two steaks at the supermarket, not $45.00 for one steak that was charred.

THEY ALMOST TURNED US AWAY TRYING TO ATTRACT MORE CUSTOMERS ON THE FRONT WALK ADVERTISING THE MENU - BUT I DID NOTICE IT WORKED FOR A COUPLE OF OTHER PARTIES - SO I GUESS THE POSITIVES OUTWEIGH THE NEGATIVES. THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD AND OUR SERVER WAS VERY PERSONABLE.

    Great steakhouse! Very quick to get seated and great wait staff. For the appetizer menu I would recommend the steak spring rolls with spicy ketchup. You will also enjoy the bread that comes out to your table, the garlic butter is a real treat that goes with. Next for the entrée, I would recommend the new York strip sirloin. Marmont also make there own gourmet steak sauces, so don't count on A-1 sauce being on the table. Instead try Marmont's own Au poivre steak sauce. It has a little spicy flavor but really brings out the taste of the steak and is a winner. For dessert, I recommend the daily cheesecake or the bananas foster. Overall a great place to dine and enjoy on any occasion.

    Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious - house salad, filet, frites, asparagus... the bread was also excellent, as was the white sangria. The service was fabulous. The only downside to this restaurant is that we could tell it's a late-night destination... the floors and windows looked a bit rough (hence the four stars). Overall, though, I highly recommend Marmont Steakhouse. You will not be disappointed.

    I went there with my friend before the concert of BSB on Saturday night. The reservation is a little bit early for dinner (around 4PM). Hence, the service may not be as outstanding as a decent steakhouse. However, the food there was awesome! We ordered filet mignon and rib eye for entree and we had the Lamp lollipop for appetizer. I really love the side dish with our steaks, the bacon Brussels sprouts and sauteed asparagus! I love the food here so much and it's better than my last steak experience at Morton's!

    My boyfriend and I visited for the first time bc I purchased a Gilt offer. Our server was Melissa who was really sweet. I ordered Filet Oscar and my boyfriend got the rack of Lamb. I ordered my steak Medium but it was more like Rare so I had to send it back. I would like to note that I usually do not do that ~ it was really RARE. There could've been more pieces of crabmeat too but it was pretty good. My boyfriend thought his "large" portion of lamb wasn't very large but overall, tasty. We chose to sit outside bc the weather was really great, aside from the nearby smokers and our wobbly table (which the hostess fixed) it was fine. Next time, I think I'd choose to sit inside. Overall, it was a positive experience for our date night.

    My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at the Marmont. It was a gorgeous night out but we chose to quieter indoor dining area to be away from the busy sidewalk. That was one of the things I liked the most - the music wasn't too loud and the acoustics made it possible to easily have a conversation with each other. We had excellent service - very attentive and the food was very good. I had the Oscar filet and my steak was cooked to perfection. The brussel sprouts on the side were good but didn't need the bacon (just my opinion of course). We will be going back for dinner again.

    I took my fiancé here bc we wanted a nice upscale dinner experience. I ordered the surf and turf she ordered the steak. Both dishes included filet mignon which were cooked like an Applebee's steak. The portions are large which is a good thing considering our bill was $116 for two people. At dinner we said these are Ruth's Chris prices for Fridays quality. We visit upscale restaurants frequently thus completely missed the boat

    Filet Mignon was not that great. I actually thought it was the worst steak I've had in a while. It was tender but burnt to a crisp and lacked flavor. The sides and drinks however were very good.

    The steak was exceptional! I had Filet Oscar, which is a filet with lump crab meat, served over potatoes. The filet was awesome, crab was different than I have had before, but good. My sister had a NY strip Florentine (tomatoes and spinach on top), she raved about it. We also had a side of baked Brussels Sprouts with bacon, VERY tasty and a large portion. We both had the house Cabernet wine (apx $8 a glass), and we were both very impressed with it. The restaurant is smaller than most steak houses with a relaxed atmosphere, in the old part of Philadelphia. Perfect if you want great food in a relaxed surrounding!
