    A busy restaurant results in fairly slow, although decent service. The main problem here is that while the food is okay, okay food does not merit the prices.

  • Always Delicious
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/18/2014
    For this price point, the food in this restaurant is much better than one would expect. My compliments to the chef! The menu changes regularly, but currently there is a crab salad that is outstanding, a melon salad that is also delicious, and a mind-blowing sweet corn pot au creme. The soups are home made and always delight. Fish dishes are reliably well prepared and often have combinations of ingredients that are surprisingly good together. For this level of food, the prix fixe is a real bargain. One member of our large party is diabetic and asked for sugar-free whipped cream with berries for her dessert. It was quickly prepared and brought to her with a "No problem!"

    Four of us went to Marseille for Sunday brunch this weekend on the advice of a friend. From the time we walked in to the time we walked out, the experience was great. Friendly and accommodating hostesses, excellent wait staff and lovely food. The Mushroom Pain Perdu was definitely the winner, but each meal was well-prepared and delicious. And the desserts were what you would expect from a really good French-influenced restaurant - the creme brulee, and an amazing custard served with a roasted and caramelized plum were standouts. Definitely will return to Marseille again.

    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.
