    I have been going to Marseille for years before Broadway. I have brought numerous friends and family over the years there but I need to say that this past visit was a little bit of a deception. I feel it has gone down. I actually had a stomach ache which is due to un sanitary conditions. I still love the place but I have to be honest.

    My husband and I had Friday night tickets to a nearby theater and our afternoon was one of those anything that could go wrong did kind of days. We got to Marseille about an hour and a half later than we had originally planned and the wait staff served us very quickly so that we could still get to the theater on time for the show.

    We enjoyed our recent lunch at Marseille. At first, were given two tables that were terrible, but the hostess graciously allowed us to move a third time. Service was haughty and slow, but our food was expertly prepared and came out exactly as ordered. The staff moved at a quick pace, but our wait between meals was too long to be comfortable--we got there after the lunch rush so it should not have been a problem. Watermelon carpaccio was a stand out. The fennel and sauce on the salmon plate were delicious. The prices are very reasonable! I'm not sure I would return since there are so many restaurants from which to choose, but I'm glad we tried it.

    I had a friend in town from Nashville, and I wanted to take her to a place for brunch that was nice and had some cachet, was New York-ie and fabulous. Marseille didn't disappoint. The service was prompt, professional and friendly, and the food was outstanding. It was a lovely day, and the restaurant was impressive without being haughty. This place has been a favorite of mine for some years, and it remains one.

    I was visiting from Boston and stopped by for a lunch before going to a broad way show. The service was great, but did not serve the full menu in Saturday or Sunday lunch (which I did not find it written on the menu).! The had brunch and a few other selections. Nonetheless it was great.

    I took my boyfriend to Marseille last year and we both loved it. The food is wonderful. However, this time around I went with a group of my girlfriends and we had terrible service. We had two waiters, I don't think they even introduced themselves. One took our order and then disappeared. At every single plating there was a mixup or a dish missing. They wait staff fixed it but it always took forever. I ordered the cookie plate and it was not what was described on the menu. No one came by to apologize or to see how we were doing. At the end of the meal, we spoke to the manager who took off our coffees and gave us champagne. I still felt like no one seemed to care. I enjoy the food at Marseille but I just hope they improve their service.

    The food during our recent visit was wonderful. The veal milanese was perfectly crispy. The cocktails were creative and well-balanced. The sweet corn pot de creme dessert was AMAZING. Truly, the only complaint we had was slow service, but in the company of good friends it wasn't even an issue.

    Mussels and fries very good. (Fries were seasoned with rosemary and thyme -- nice combination.) Vegetable terrine tasty but hard to cut into bite-sized pieces with standard knife due to large slices of eggplant and squash. Tuscan chicken cooked under a brick excellent -- crispy skin. Mashed potatoes divine. Half a dozen grappas on menu, but only one available. Cheese plate okay, but cheeses not identified by server. Ordered three scoops of sorbets, but got only two flavors: blueberry promised but not delivered. Sardinian white a big surprise -- clean and fruity.

    I took my mom out to this French restaurant for her birthday during restaurant week. I chose this restaurant in particular because they had a lot of variety. We started off with some cocktails, my mom got the sangria and I got the "Le Pamplemousse." The sangria sounds good from the menu, but it was sub-par, I definitely had better. The Pamplemousse was not overly sweet, but also nothing memorable. Appetizer, we got the Saffron Risotto and vegetable terrine. The risotto had no saffron flavor and it was under-salted. I highly recommend the terrine. Entree we got the lamb chops and branzino. They were both delicious, but my favorite is definitely the branzino. Flavors were well balanced between the salsa verde and corn & celery slaw.

    Last Tuesday I entertained a visitor who has had little experience with New York at lunch at Marseille. I admit that the choice of restaurant was dictated mostly by location, but we had a wonderful lunch experience. Superb food with superb service and with a modern but elegant ambiance made for an excellent interlude in an otherwise busy day. Noise level was mercifully low, and the highlight was a truly first-class wine list with a strong emphasis on the French, of course.

    I've eaten here before and have always enjoyed the food and the quality of service. It did disappoint this time either. We had dinner later in the evening and so didn't have to wait for our table. Eating here is never a rushed experience unless you advise them that you are going to a show. Prices are good too! I would recommend this place for a good meal and a very pleasant atmosphere! Could almost think you are in Paris!!!

    The crispy trout and calamari were delicious but tiny portions on $13 kale salad which was my entree (that they also forgot to bring with the meal). Tiny portion on pasta as well. Not worth it for the prices. Prob should have figured for 9 th ave but was recommended as a top find. Keep looking.

    We came here after the theatre and had read about the food and ambience. Our waiter was lackluster at best and the food was good but not memorable. The ambience was decent but again, not something to write home about! There are so many options in NYC and I was sorry we picked this for one of our few dinners out.

    Went with a group of six women for lunch. It was restaurant week so we got an unbelievable deal. The waiters were very friendly, helpful & personable. The service was fabulous which we were happy about since we had a Broadway show matinee to catch at 2:00. Three of us had veal which was delicious & a big portion. We were able to get any dessert on the menu. Everyone liked the chocolate cherry bomb & the apple crisp. We all said we will definitely go back & also recommend this restaurant to our friends & family.

    I don't live in the area, but whenever I am meeting friends near the theater district this is my go to place for reliably good food at fair prices. The tables are well spaced so you don't hear everyone's conversation. The crab cake falafel appetizer was wonderful; plenty of fresh crab meat with just enough holding it together. I will be back again ....

    We went to Marseille prior to seeing a show at the Majestic. It is very convenient for this and the food was good. Overall I feel that the price was a bit on the high side, but not completely out of line. We went during Restaurant Week so did receive a bit of a discount, otherwise this would have been more expensive. A good option if you are going to a show.
