Our server was very attentive and all of her recommendations were great!11/4/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressedI am a big fan of french cuisine personally and it is an impressive restaurant I have ever tried in Edmonton so far.

This time our table shared the plat du charcuterie and the duck rillette, which were great starters. The quince jam served with the charcuterie was delicious--- I wish they sold it. We enjoyed our mains, artic char, lamb shank, and roasted chicken. The service is attentive and informed. Looking forward to the next time. À la prochaine!9/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find!!Had a wonderful time , first place I've found where the food and experience far out valued the price of the check!!..8/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second visitThis was our second visit to the Marc, and it reaffirmed our impression of a great local gem in the downtown core. The food is smart, really well executed, and memorable. The only thing that outdoes the menue is the service. The owners of the Marc have successfully assembled one of the best service teams we have ever encountered. They are relaxed and fun, but completely aware and in control of the environment. We noticed at one point, that we recoginzed a number of service staff as having been of our favorites from many other local eateries over the years. The equivalent to a service industry "dream team"! If you are looking for a fine dining experience, with a modern and fun feel. Try the Marc. You won't be dissapointed!8/2/2013 12:00:00 AMClaude and I went to the MarcClaude and I went to the Marc just to get a taste of the Alcasian (not sure if that is spelled right) menu. As that is Claude's old home, he wanted a taste of his Mom's cooking.
Well, as he took a bite he was transported back. So kudos to The Marc and thier fine staff for a wonderful dinner, fantastic service and a trip back to France!
The dish that I had was so good, I wanted to lick my plate. I had to stop myself or they would have had to roll me out of there.
Our server, Brandy, was fantastic as usual and we had a great time.
(Although I had to undo the button on my pants on the way home :)7/2/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything we ordered wasEverything we ordered was delicious and cooked to perfection. We had the scallops and steak tartare for appetizers; both were out of this world! Our entrees, the duck and the Arctic Char, were equally delicious and beautifully presented. We don't usually order dessert but couldn't resist the beignets. We were not disappointed! The service was exceptional. Our server was very helpful and attentive but not hovering. Very professional. Our experience at The Marc was exactly what we hoped it would be. This was our first time there and we definitely plan to return!7/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Food and CharmThere are some restaurants where you walk in and know you have made a good choice---and The Marc is one of those. We were struck by the enticing smells from this bistro's kitchen when we arrived, and were greeted warmly by the owner. A good start, and we weren't disappointed!
Excellent food and service. Our waitress knew her wines and the menu and was friendly and efficient to boot. Vibrant yet cozy atmosphere. Had the steak tartar, charcuterie, and duck breasts, all perfectly prepared. Wines moderately priced and a nice selection. Lush deserts. The Domaine Chique was a great French blend that paired well with our food. A new favorite---and we will return!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding - Loved the experienceThe food is high end with appropriate portions and a great variety. A thoroughly enjoyable dining experience for both business and/or romance. I have been both for lunch and dinner and have not been disappointed in 12 visits so far.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Evening outMy wife and I are regulars to this restaurant, and for good reason! The food was fantastic as usual, possibly a little too much orange in the rillete for my tastes, but that is a personal thing!
The service was friendly and prompt in all the right ways. The host was friendly, approachable and gracious as always. The greatest thing about this place is the unbelievable value that it offers! Three courses, with 3 glasses of wine for 2 people was $145 (with tip)! For the quality of food that the Marc routinely pumps out, this is unbeatable value.
I will continue to come back again and again, couldn't be happier with a restaurant!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at The Marc - andFirst time at The Marc - and we will be back -- everything was outstanding and we had a great experience -- from the service to the quality of the food -- great evening - made my mother day evening special !!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCouldn't have been happierWe received a warm welcome when arriving and we did not have to wait for our table. The food was fantastic and was good value. The service was friendly, prompt & helpful. The atmosphere is vibrant and the décor is warm while still being trendy. There was six of us and everyone enjoyed their meal. They did have a vegetarian entrée but they were very accommodating and made up a nice dish.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous As UsualThe Marc never disappoints. The food is incredible with the menu offering a variety of unusual and changing dishes. The Bison was done to perfection and the signature beignets (donuts) with dipping sauce are a must have. Patrick and Doris make you feel like they're welcoming you to their home for an evening of fun and great food.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways greatThis was our second visit and once again, we are blown away. A great meal at a reasonable price with top notch service and a host/hostess that makes you feel like you are eating at their home. We will be back for sure.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPromises kept....It was the experience I'd been promised both from reviews and friends recommendations.
For a romantic dinner, I would however recommend a potential diner know of table placement in order to book one on the perimeter by the windows. Preferably the southeast corner.
Service was impeccable in attentiveness, knowledge and personality. Our server was "platinum" in her worth. From observation, so we're the others. A very welcome change in dinning for Edmonton along with the lower ambient noise.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is a touchThe restaurant is a touch noisy but I can't argue with the food and service. We were greeted at the door by the owner, who was friendly and welcoming. After an excellent meal, we were escorted out by the owner, a nice touch.
Rather than trying to crowd the menu with a hundred choices, The Marc kept it nice and focused. I cobbled three apps together as my meal and they were all terrific--in particular, best fries in Edmonton.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe recently visited The MarcWe recently visited The Marc to celebrate my mother in law's 60th birthday. It was all of our first visits andeverybody left full and happy. The food was amazing. Our server was great. Absolutely zero complaints whatsoever! Totally recommend. Have the steak frites!!!! I was sad that I was unable to have any dessert (as someone had cupcakes at home) but they all looked and sounded fabulous.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMiss steak frites for lunch!As always, the food was excellent, but I'm disappointed the steak frites have been removed from the lunch menu.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious, I wantedFood was delicious, I wanted to lick my plate - had the lamb shank. Service was fantastic.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic as alwaysSome friends were in from France and we wanted them to experience a taste of home so where better to bring them then to the Marc. Always a hit with whatever is on the menu. Packed for a Wednesday night which is great for a little downtown restuarant. I had the Arctic Char and it melted in my mouth. And then of course that Lemon Tart tops off an evening of taste bud heaven with a lttle zest.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been there several timesI've been there several times and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, service is among the best in town and the prices are most reasonable.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMReliably Good...Great place to dine with a close friend or potential client.
A new and improved wine list should be considered!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was first-rate. WeThe food was first-rate. We had the char and duck entrees. The service was excellent, striking a perfect balance between attentive and casual. We wouldn't rather have it any other way. Oh yeah - the creme brulee was topnotch as well. We will undoubtedly be back soon.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLunchHad lunch with a friend. My first time. I had mushrooms on ciabatta with a salad. It was amazing. Great flavour. It was busy and noisy, service was above par but despite being able to hear everyone's various conversations in detail, which made me very reluctant to discuss work or personal things with my companion for fear the people left and right of us could hear every word as we could hear there's - tables feel WSY too close for my comfort, it was still worth it, I just powered through lunch faster. I'll be more picky and try to request a table rather than being stuck in the middle. .4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHave eaten at the Marc twice,Have eaten at the Marc twice, lunch and dinner!
