    Most of the food was excellent, but I ordered soup very hot...it wasn't. The salmon tar tar was fabulous. The server never came over to check it everything was good, never offered more coffee ( and the coffee was only fare). Because the new Beverly Hills theatre is so close, it should do well...but lots of restaurants on Canon that are better.

    we had a fantastic birthday lunch here before seeing a show at the Wallis Annenberg right across the street. starting with the french charcuterie plate (they have 3 different countries flavors), the croque madame & the pancakes. the only disappointment were the pancakes because they were neither crepes nor american style. they were dense and flat. having said this all of the accompaniments that came with it were delicious ...caramelized "burnt" maple syrup YUM! blueberry compote, etc...

    I chose Monsieur Marcel because it was listed as "nearby" on the website for a theater where we and friends would be going for a play. Turned out it was just a short walk from the Wallis Theater, which made it perfect for our evening out - and we only had to park the car once! Our group of four included two people with dietary restrictions but we all found good choices available on the menu and enjoyed our dinners very much. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. The ambiance was very pleasant and with a European feel and the prices were not too expensive for Beverly Hills.

    Craving authentic croissants, I drove quite a distance for a Sunday breakfast. 9am on Sunday morning I was told they only had chocolate croissants. So-so breakfast potatoes. Eggs cooked perfectly. I'll return because the service was excellent and I love the patio.

    We had the entire patio to ourselves. True, it was a Monday evening at 8:30. It was a beautiful evening and it was great eating outside. The food was delicious. The salted butter was different and very good on the bread. The beef bourguignon was delicious as was the simple butter lettuce salad with dressing. The wines we had were also very good. They didn't have the creme brulee we wanted, so we had to go elsewhere for dessert. Only recommendation is they need to update their menu on their web site, as they no longer serve the rack of lamb (but really, I was happier with the bourguignon). A terrific place for a casual yet delicious meal.

    Waiters are nowhere to be found when you need them. I often feel that the restaurant would function better if it were run as a cafeteria. As it is, I am always having to flag someone down to get assistance or to remind them of a request made earlier, which does not lead to a relaxing time. At our last Sunday brunch my Latte arrived lukewarm, and the restaurant was out of croissants (which are very good) at 12:30 PM (totally unacceptable). Monsieur Marcel uses high quality ingredients in its dishes.

    We went here for Valentines, made for a great romantic dinner. The cheese fondue is excellent, as is the dessert menu (we had the chocolate fondue as well). Afterward, we went and bought an excellent Bordeaux from the wine shop inside. Great place for an outdoor dinner in Beverly Hills.

    This is one of our go-to places, an easy and dependable spot for dinner. Great chicken/fries and great steak/fries. Seafood's fresh and well-prepared. A nice informal setting, patio seating's a nice option and the heaters are more than enough for warmth most nights. A fun setting inside with the store right there. Service is always good. Overall, a really good value for very fresh and well-prepared meals.

    Sunday night dinner with friends--was Grammys night so a VERY quiet restaurant--we were literally one of only two tables at 7:30 for dinner. Excellent service but that's because service there is excellent, not because we were pretty much alone in the restaurant. Two of us had salmon, which was superb. Two had chicken which they both devoured so I'm guessing that was pretty superb, too. Onion soup and salads to start, all great. A shared strawberry tart and a nice red wine rounded out the meal. Really just great food here--focused on the ingredients, fresh and so very well prepared. We've been mulitple times and will come again soon, I'm sure.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP

    The dishes were terrific! Beet salad was beautiful, salmon tartare was fun with crunchy twist. Crispy salmon was reported to be delicious. Moules could have been hotter. We love the restaurant, but because it is so casual, almost like an afterthought to the sales area, we don't dine there for special occasions. The chef deserves praise!

    Tried this restaurant for a holiday client luncheon for 4. Parking was terrible, but it is, after all, a week before Christmas. The food was amazing! We chose fish and steaks and everything was tender and delightfully seasoned. Lunch for 4 (including a glass of wine each), including tip, was $175. So this is a great place if you are on an expense account.

    Affordable French bistro fare Or as the French would say " La mejor comida en francés Beverlt Hills" Lets start out with their French stick", the long thin crusty loaf, is perhaps one of the better known icons of French life. In France, it is known as a "baguette is served with normandy butter and salt. Perfect way to begin your meal and the wine selections are good.Salade aux Endives, Poires, Noix et Roquefort Salad of Endives, Pears, Walnuts and Roquefort Excellent . Baby Lettuce with Mustard Vinaigrette Oh la la now for the Steak au poivre is served with pan sauce consisting of reduced cognac, heavy cream & peppercorn.

    A great cheese tray we shared to start--and half price because we were there while happy hour was still going on. Excellent choice of cheeses, plenty for the 3 of us to share. (The French plate.) All of us had roasted chicken and we, to a person, loved it. Well presented, perfectly cooked, juicy and very well-seasoned. Service was great, as it always is. What I especially like about service here is that wait staff doesn't push--we sat with the cheese a long time before ordering (our choice) and never felt pressure to move along. We're big fans of Monsieur Marcel, love it.

    Dined on 9/29/2013
    Some of the best roasted chicken anywhere, in my opinion. Group of 4, 2 of us had the chicken and we both ate every bit we could--juicy and perfectly prepared. Our table also had a chicken salad and a bacon/brie/apricot preserve sandwich, both of which got rave reviews. Food is simple and straightforward, beautifully prepared and presented. Honestly, not one negative thing to say about Sunday lunch, our third or fourth visit.

    I took my friend here for her birthday and she loved it. The mussels and clans dish was beautifully presented and she said it was delicious. I had the crispy skinned salmon and it was one of the best salmon dishes I have ever had. For dessert, Opera, a chocolate layered sponge cake was delicious. After lunch you can cruise the market which has a multitude of fine delicacies to choose from plus a great wine selection.

    And that's a good thing! Simple, straightforward, "neighborhoody", bistro food. A nice setting, inside and out. Roast chicken seems to be our favorite here though steak/frites is a close second. This visit, service was a little off, more absent than anything else, but that's not been the norm with other visits so maybe just an off night. Best way to end the meal is with a visit inside to the store where you'll find a treasure trove of condiments, teas, and specialty foods. We're fast becoming regulars.

    This place really reminds me of Europe - an easy cafe market you would find in Paris. The food is tasty, good quality, and prepared well. This has become one of my casual favorites in the neighborhood. My favorites are the salmon and chicken. Good food and service, not pretentious. (This is for the Beverly Hills location)

    We love the original in Farmers Market, but this is not the same. Feels like a fast food market. Bright lights and no charm. 2 glasses of wine in a row were already turned to vinegar -- obviously stored poorly. Service was really bad. Waiter insulted bus boy when he tried to help us. However, the food was great, once we got it. We will not return.
