I would highly recommend the pork chop that they have on the menu for summerlicious. It was really delicious, I couldn't believe you can cook pork like that. The fat melts in your mouth like a butter and the meat is cooked to perfection. If you guys go there try the pork chop. Amazing :)
My friends and I went to Marben for Summerlicious and we had a great time! The food was amazing, in both taste and presentation, and the service was impeccable. Our server was knowledgeable with the wine menu and his recommendations were fitting to what we were looking for. The patio was also cozy and nicely decorated to make one feel homey and comfortable. This was not my first time going to Marben but it was the first time I've brought some close friends. All of my friends had a great time and loved the restaurant, and we would definitely go back there soon!
This was my first Vivian but I will definitely be back. Exceptional service and great food in a beautiful setting.
Very good experience! Great food!
It was a special occasion that I wanted to be just right. Marben went above and beyond to make us feel welcome, cared about our time with them, and we ended up leaving making a few friends with the staff. Jordan was tremendous, we'll be returning because of him, thank you for making our evening special. Oh, the food and drink was great also. I was hoping for more of a busier atmosphere at the beginning, but in retrospect, that would likely have taken away from the extra attention they showed us. Well done Marben!
Ambience was nice service was great but the food was underwhelming. My boyfriend and I were a little disappointed but maybe it was an off day at the restaurant.
Excellent food and location. However, for some reason our service was super slow. We arrived at 945pm and got out around 1145pm. The restaurant was not even super busy. Drinks too forever to come. There was long pauses between courses. That being said the food was amazing and delicious.
It was phenomenal, we had the absolute best experience at the Chef’s table— the staff was warm, accommodating and far above and beyond our expectations. Thank you so much.
Beer pairings with apps were Delish
OMG That burger and the cauliflower
We love this restaurant and always experience a different dish on each visit, the staff are always knowledgeable and helpful. Love the overall feel of the place and ambiance.
Lovely staff; good food; close to the venue where we were attending a basketball game.
Amazing food and service !
Great wine recommendations, family sharing plates were delicious, and the tomato-ricotta appetizer was life-changingly good. Highly recommend!
Delicious menu that is big on local ingredients and excellently prepared. Will definitely be returning soon.
Very cool restaurant with very friendly staff. i love the ricotta and cheese, best I ever had! Thanks guys!
Waitress was rude, food overpriced.
We went to Marben for a get-together among co-workers. I was excited to try it as the menu looked great. The attentiveness of the servers was quite bad. We probably sat at our table for a good 20 minutes before we had to flag someone down to get us drinks. The drinks were great once we got them, but the initial wait soured the experience. The appetizers were good, but our mains took a long time. The food tasted phenomenal once we got it. From the time we sat down to the time we actually ate it was well over 2 hours. If you go, don't expect prompt service and make sure you have a longer tolerance for the total dining experience time.
Nice atmosphere outside on the patio. Food good, sampled Yorkshire pudding (we’Re from Yorkshire) nearly as good as the real thing!!
Half price wine on Sunday was a welcome discount for our meal.
Food is always outstanding. Have yet to get good service - just general inattentiveness. But still worth it to go for the food.
Service was impeccable, food was scrumptious, and drinks were Devine! Definitely would recommend this place!
A request was put in for the patio, but I guess you can’t reserve that. So we ended up having to dine inside with no AC on a hot evening. It was really hot and muggy inside and they had a ton of lit candles around the restaurant and bar, which I understand is apart of the ambience, but they could have kept them off while their AC was not working. Knowing it was hot, servers in my restaurants would have offered free cold non-alcoholic drinks or cold cloths, not just ignore it.
We had asked the server for a drink that didn’t come and was even given the drinks from the next table over of which of course they took back. It wasn’t busy at all on a Tuesday night, just the patio which is small, so not sure what the lack of focus was about with many people working.
The food was good, but was a bit pricy for what you were getting and I am a chef, so I know value perception/food cost.
Even though it wasn’t a bad experience, I don’t think I’d come back when I live in a city full of restaurants.
Service great. Food good, not great (but I have very high standards) but still very good. Would recommend.
Excellent service! Jason était un as; il nous a servi comme des rois. La joue de bœuf était succulente; pour le reste, l’agneau et la morue, on n’a pas été hautement épaté. La cuisine manque un peu d’inspiration et de refinement. Autrement c’est un bel endroit et un restaurant qui pourra sûrement faire mieux en mettant l’accent sur la cuisine. J’y retournerais dans un an ou deux pour voir si la cuisine s’améliore.
Very cosy , large choice, very good food - was a good night !
Wonderful comfortable atmosphere, with a friendly group of staff.
Neighbourhood Gem for sure! We love the ambiance and this quite but energetic place a short walk away from where we live. Everyone is always so accommodating and kind. Can't wait to come back.
From the moment we arrived to our leaving the service and the food was fantastic!
good food and first class service maybe a little ward inside but it was a warm evening!
We had a great time at Marben. Our table had every shareable, the oysters, the 20 oz steak and the desert platter. Especially good we’re the, smoky margaritas, cauliflower and beef cheeks. Good night with good friends.
The food and service were both excellent. We were celebrating my friend’s birthday and the waiter really made it special. Food was delicious.
We loved the decor, the food, and the wine. 1/2 price bottles on Sundays is a perfect deal. We did have to wait quite a long time for our meals but our friendly server made it up to us. We are looking forward to returning.
We were disappointed at waiting almost 30 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. I understand this can happen through no fault of the management but I think we should have been offered something beyond a simple "sorry." It also took 3 tries before we received the correct bill. Otherwise the food was good, the place is attractive but kind of noisy.
Food was phenomenal, service was excellent, ambiance is fantastic. Highly recommend for any occassion - and The Cloak downstairs is a supercool haunt for drinks/snacks!
We shared an order of dashi mussels - wonderful flavors with chile and ginger. The Canadian Viognier was also outstanding.
Fantastic restaurant! We try to get here as often as we can.
Saturday night dinner with six friends...
Service and food were very good. The table platters are a great option for groups of four more. The booth we had was bit too tight. A table would have been better.
The food was magnificent. The service was exemplerary and the overall experience was one of the best I have ever had in a Toronto restaurant.
Memorable dining experience with a good meal supported by a great staff. Our server Jason was simply awesome. He was very knowledgeable and attentive. We will surely drop by again.
Spouse had been before with a friend. Local food is featured, nice ambiance, but found it quite dark. Outside seating will be nice in the summer. As a vegetarian, I find eating out very tricky. There were two veg options on the appetizer list and one main. We shared the ploughmans platter, spouse eating the meat part, myself the cheese. Was tasty, but extremely tiny portions of two kinds of cheese (two slices of one and a tablespoon of the other). Meat selection more varied and larger portion. Huge portion of greasy toast. (Please stop with the 'expeller-pressed rapeseed - canola is canola - nasty). The meat selection was apparently delicious. Spouse ordered pork belly, I had the one main - roasted Veg (mostly root) vegetables with mushrooms. Belly good, accompanying rutabaga, meh. Veg dish was fine, but a very small portion and just that and a very dark (black) sauce that was devoid of flavour. We shared the rhubarb apple dessert - very nice. Spouse's cocktail excellent. Cafe Americano delicious. Nice atmosphere, better than average food, trendy, but don't expect to be full, but you will be out $130.00.
