1925 menu was done nicely
We ordered from the 1925 early bird menu. It was a very enjoyable experience and a great way to sample some of the cuisine. It was also lovely to be at the Vinoy during the early evening hours. Our server, Dean, was fantastic.

I thought the menu was a bit
I thought the menu was a bit limited for those who are not carnivores. Considering it is RIGHT on the water I expected more choices of seafood. That said, the salmon was quite good.

My party and I experienced
My party and I experienced Marchand's Bar and Grill for Mother's Day. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was relaxed but nice, and the service was impeccable. It was everything we'd hoped for!

Great setting and top line food
The large restaurant has open spaced tables, not the usual " how many can we pack in" it reminds you of a grader era, which of course being part of the classic Vinoy hotel makes sense. Good food selection and interesting menu complimented by a very diverse wine list. Wine and diner will cost $100+ per person, but worth it for special occasions or just to treat yourself. Service was friendly and relaxed, if a bit slow.

Sunday Brunch at the Vinoy
Hands down, Marchand's at the Vinoy has the BEST Sunday brunch---PERIOD!!! A HUGE selection of perfectly prepared food, a wonderful piano accompanied dining ambience and unparalleled attentive service. Don't miss it.

A dining experience
Service was wonderful and the room is an experience you will love. We had lunch which was terrific. The grouper sandwich and salads were excellent. Also had chicken salad sandwich which was good but portion is too small. Overall a special place

We've been several times and we're never disappointed! Fabulous!

Food, friends, and conversation
Food, friends, and conversation mix well at Marchand's. The ambiance was not an attention grabber, and that was a good thing when meeting friends with whom we had a lot of catching up to do. The wait staff were very patient as our conversation roiled on during our first fifteen minutes at the table. Wine and food were ordered while photos on cell phones were passed around. Our conversation did focus on the food as soon as it was delivered. It was well-plated and well-presented, but the proof was in the tastes. Everyone had to say, "Mmmmmm." Even as others were seated around us we did not have to raise our voices to continue our conversation. After desert, as we lingered over coffee, all agreed Marchand's was perfect for our reunion.

Great place to eat!
Very attentive staff, great food. Chef came by to check to see how we liked the Cuban Eggs Benedict.

Brunch. Brunch, Brunch
Wonderful Brunch, the hollandaise was a bit cold and I was hoping the eggs Benedict had been made fresh at the egg bar. Everything was wonderful and the cakes were fantastic.

No longer a buffet brunch. They have a prix fix for 3 choices. 2 entres and one dessert for $32. French toast was very good, the filet was good. Crab cake very crabby. Croissants very good and fresh. Not what we were expecting based on internet reading. They changed menu for Sunday recently. Would return. Waitress was excellent. All you can drink mimosas also great, $7.00.

1900 dinner special r the best!
Wow, I just experienced my first 1900 dinner special that they do nightly with wine pairing. The food was amazing! The Gazpacho was over the top fabulous and the check added his own unique touches that were delicious. The entrees were wonderful - yum and beautifully presented. The wine recommended with our meal was a bit too pedestrian for us so we ordered our own bottle. They have a decent wine selection; however, it does not do the food justice. We will definitely be back and will bring more friends since the price was a lot lower than we expected!

MEMORABLE BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
WE ALL ENJOYED THE FOOD. SCALLOPS WERE DEVINE, GUMBO (FROM THE 1925 MENU) SUPERB, AMBIANCE FESTIVE AND THE SERVICE OUTSTANDING. THE SPECIAL TOUCHES WERE SWEET - BIRTHDAY CAKE ADORABLE.

Wonderful place for a celebration!
Took my mother here for brunch for her birthday. She was so happy and so excited to see the hotel. The food was fabulous and plentiful. The service was immaculate.

We had a lovely meal at Marchands.
We had a lovely meal at Marchands. Food was very good and the room is lovely. One flaw.... It was very slow. Slow to get our food, our check, etc. Too leisurely for a party of two, especially on a weeknight.

I have been here many times
I have been here many times with my Hat Club. Marchand's always makes us feel very special. We will be back many, many more times, Thank you!

Unfortunately they did away with the 1925 menu on weekends.

Excellent experience on all
Excellent experience on all levels. Worth the visit even if you are not staying at the Vinoy.

What a magnificent dining room and bar. A must see and taste. Delicious warm bread basket with a couple different choices. Presentation was elegant. Nice choice of wines. Bartender had nice suggestions for wine.

Impressive Dining Room & Service!
Was disappointed when upon arrival I realized their online menu was not actually the menu on offer. Marchand's changes their menu once a month, so no reason why they can't update their menu online monthly. Fairly easy process!
I had Cornish Game Hen -came with a cornbread stuffing, sadly was one of the dishes on their menu that did not come with any vegetables?! Had to order a side of excellent roast vegetables, but why would some dishes come with vegetables and others not??
The bread they provide with dinner is outstanding - an olive bread and an asiago cheese bread. Both ultra-fresh and of high quality.
Service, dining room decor & atmosphere were outstanding. Huge high-ceiling dining room with a classic roman feel and decor.

Always good for a special occasion, the Chefs blended traditional Thanksgiving fare with a delightful variation on the menu. A bit pricey but the price fixe menu was worth it. Dining room needs drapes or something to baffle the sound as it can get quite noisy.
