    I had lunch here for restaurant week. We lingered for two hours over amazing food, fantastic wine and friendly and efficiently service. I returned for brunch for an equally pleasing experience. One of the best wine lists in the city.

    Love this place, I go here for brunch before I go to see a Broadway show, its also one of the only places that takes reservations for brunch (most brunch places are jerks are don't take brunch reservations) ALSO, they seated us when only two of the three members of our party was there. Again most brunch places are total jerks about this and refuse to seat you. Other than the outstanding and quick service despite the restaurants being so packed, our food was delicious. Between me and my two friends, we've had most of the items on the brunch menu and every time we love what we order. Lastly, even though the restaurant was packed, the noise level wasn't too high and they didn't seat us uncomfortably close to anyone else. Love this place!

    We've eaten many times at Marseille. For various reasons, we hadn't been there in over a year, but our pre-theater dinner on 9/11/14 was excellent. The meal and service were very good, and the room, as always, is very inviting. Always an enjoyable experience. Highly recommended.

    Took my wife and her visiting best friend for dinner. Nice selection of the common Euro beers on tap (and like across the pond - they are served in the proper branded glasses). At dinner we sat in the bar area but still had a view of the dining room - looked and felt like we were in Europe. Wait staff and service was very friendly and attentive. Sampled some apps - the snails were very good here. The ladies loved the duck breast entree and I had the seafood tagine. Entrees were simply prepared and well seasoned. Recommend the "ricotta doughnuts" for dessert. Great selection of after dinner drinks as well. we will definitely return here.

    I've eaten at Marseilles several times over many years before going to the theater. It's reliably good bistro fare served well in a lively atmosphere reminiscent of restaurants that I've been to in France. It has a nice wine and beer list too. The tables are well spaced so that you're not on top of each other. For me, it's always a solid choice in the theater district.

    The food was mediocre at best. Was there for brunch on a saturday, it was relatively empty but got packed closer to 1pm. Did not like the calamari, eggs benedict or the omelet. Omelet tasted like it was from an egg mix, eggs benedict were on a super dry english muffin with dry piece of ham. There are much better brunch places in NYC.

    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.

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 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.

    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.
