Marathon - 16th & Sansom
Another great meal with the Marathon crew.
Requested a booth. Was told they do not seat parties of 2 in booths on the weekends. Several booths were open during our dinner. Not good service.
food was tasty but pretty noisy at lunchtime, service passable.
Food was good as usual. Service was a bit slow, but not too bad. Waitress made our experience pleasant.
been there many times. Always good food and service. Could use some more beer on tap. Very limited.
Always great food and service.
We were early for our reservation so we went to the bar and ordered drinks. Bartender was super friendly as well as the host staff. We were seated shortly and greeted by our waiter rather fast. Appetizer and food came quick and was delicious. Caesar awake was enough for two, and the salmon and crab cake were tasty!! However, I'll our waiter must have been busy because we did not see him again until the end when we asked for our check...it really was a nice dinner!
It’s usually a great time, but this experience was a disaster. My friends hair caught fire from one of the restaurants candles that was DIRECTLY behind where she was sitting.
The manager tried making up for it with “special drinks” that we didn’t not ask for.
After placing my order , the waitress came back saying they ran out of the scallops.
When we received the bill, the “special drinks” that we did not ask for were comped, however , she was charged for her entire meal. When the manager was addressed, with an attitude he stated “ did I set your hair in fire?”
I’m not happy with how they handled the situation. Not sure if we will be returning
We had a party of 5 and we had a great time! The food did not take too long to arrive after we ordered, and the service from the hostess and the server was superb! The food itself was more affordable and fairly tasty! I would reccommend marathon to a friend.
I really like this place, but it is very noisy, which I know to expect.
Place was nice and food was great, but we ordered drinks and appetizers then later food and still everything came about 5 minutes apart. It very much made the experience much less enjoyable. We felt very rushed and the restaurant was not very busy.
The salmon seemed overpriced for the amount and quality I received. It also took our waitress over 5 mins to greet our table
Great tuna salad!!
EXCELLENT as usual! Always a pleasure to dine at the Marathon Grill.
I did not enjoy this place
A great neighborhood spot for a casual meal. I like the create-your-own salad concept and the menu was diverse enough for everyone to get something they liked. Prices were competitive.
I’ve been to this place a handful of times and have never had a bad experience.. until now. They were out of most of the dinner specials which they neglected to tell any of us that ordered them until well after we ordered. I had to wait a half hour for a soda due to the CO2 needing changed. Overall service was slow and unenthusiastic. I will eat here again because I know how great it CAN be. I was just overall unimpressed by my most recent visit.
I have eaten here occasionally during the past few years. This time I felt the food was better than ever! My Asian salmon dinner with roasted vegetables and couscous was extremely well-prepared and delicious!! Great job, Marathon!
We were extremely pleased with our meal at Marathon. The food was done well and the prices made this a great deal. The service was attentive (a couple of small missteps that could be forgiven). We went pre-theater and had no issues with timing. Highly recommend for a nice meal in a bit more casual atmosphere that won't break the bank.
Excellent restaurant! I've been here a bunch of times and I always enjoy my food. Both the regular menu items and the specials!
We had an enjoyable dinner and was great location. Good atmosphere and family friendly. Our 2nd time dining at Marathon and good experiences both times.
An old standby when visiting Philly. Always make sure to get there when we are in town.
Awesome time!! Great food and service!!
I had to make a reservation for 9 people on Saturday at 5 pm following a concert in Rittenhouse Square, and this was literally the only place that could accommodate us. I had never been here before, but having no other options, I booked it. It did not disappoint! Our table was ready for us when we arrived, and all of us were so impressed! We ordered appetizers, meals and desserts, and loved everything, which is really hard with 9 people! I wish I got our waiter's name. He deserves the recognition. He was a young kid, but so professional, observant and attentive. We will definitely be back!
Good choice pre-theater with kids. Lots of options, the Caesar salad with chicken was delicious as always. Only downside was FREEZING draft, so uncomfortable we had to keep our coats on. Manager acknowledged problem with this particular booth. Bathroom could have used a cleaning (always important with kids). Overall a solid, value experience though.
Fun place with a great kids menu! Nice vibe in a fun location.
There were five of us and one dier came out totally wrong - salo instead of veggie burger. It took a long time to replace the wrong dish and although we were told it would be comped, it was not. The waiter did not write anything down so I am surprised the rest of the table was served correctly. There was also supposed to be a dressing on one dish which did not come until asked for. We were seated in a portion of the restaurant which either had a crack in the window or was overly air conditioned but it was downright cold. After the second request, the air conditioning was turned down. Not an entirely satisfactory evening.
Marathon Grill is a reliable place for excellent menu and food preparation - that's why we went there this time. Also, surprisingly, could get in with a reservation made midday saturday, in contrast with most other more expensive restaurants.
Service and Staff are always great. Ceilings and walls are too hard and sound reflective which results in the buildup of the noise levels!!!
The location of sound absorbing, panels in a variety of muted colors, would reduce the din!
Overall the establishment was average. We arrived early and were seated even before our reservation time. That’s about where the good ended.
We barely saw our server, and saw her going to other tables. The hygiene of one of the hostess took me back that her leg hair was longer then mine and I’m a male. I know the people who were seated next to us barely saw their server which coincidentally was the same as ours. The family had a special needs family member which I suspect was one of the reasons the server didn’t go over there much.
The food was above average for bar food but the portions were way above average. The food tasted very good and the food was brought promptly out and arrived hot. Prices were good considering we were in the middle of the city.
Just getting the check from the server took some time considering she would walk by us and not stop.
My wife and I visit this restaurant almost every Friday evening! We like the manager and all the staff. The food is always consistently good.
Our waiter literally went missing. I had to find other staff to get our order.
Great food. Love the variety. Prices are reasonable. Would definitely return.
Marathon is always my go to restaurant. I love the options
It was an overall great experience! The portions were great. The staff was wonderful and I totally recommend it for a casual dining spot!
Great service and we loved the create your salad option.
Always enjoy going when we are in town. Love the Matzoh Ball soup!
Great food & ambience. We got lucky because it wasn’t as noisy & packed as usual. Yummy food & drinks!!
I have been meaning to dine there, and I am happy I did!
It was good for a family. They have a lot of food that most of us couldn’t finish. Food came out hot and promptly. We enjoyed the relaxed area. Price is a tad high but probably to be expected because of the area
