Girlfriends birthday. Ordered some t bone steak plate off the menu and got served a bowl of rice. Was shocked. Not what I wanted at all. Server was not good at his job. Shame, I liked this place before that.

The bar and restaurant areas were full and busy, however, our service was never rushed. The atmosphere was vibrant and fun. The brick interior and lighting was pretty.

The cocktails were AMAZING. Between trying my own drinks and sips of my friend's drinks, I was able to sample about 10 on the menu - each drink had multiple unique flavors - the servers were excellent at matching new drinks to try with one's taste preferences.

Appetizers and entrees were amazing. The chef was able to accommodate a vegan meal in our group.

My wife and I visited with our 5yo son early on a friday evening. The bar was full and there were a couple tables seated for dinner so the restaurant in general wasn't very busy. We were promptly greeted by our server and she went over the special menu. We asked if there was a kids munu and unfortunately there wan't except that the chef would make buttered noodles. Our son is an adventurous eater so we decided to order off of the main menu and share with him. We ordered the crispy chick peas and Pickled onion rings. Both were very good but the only complaint that i had was that the chick peas were odd to eat. the were very small so they were difficult to eat with our hand and eating with a spoon or fork didn't seem appropriate. For dinner, my wife and son shared the M&R burger which was cooked as requested. I ordered the Duck carbonara. THe flavor was very good however there was an odor from the carbonara that was off putting. My wife and I assumed it was the duck bacon and ate it any way. I would have given M&R a 5 star rating if it wasn't for the odd smell from my pasta dish. Otherwise, this place is great!!!

Drinks were great. Ambiance is dark, private and cool. Just didnt love the menu. Food tasted great but the items are over priced for portion size and the menu was very limited. Went home and had a snack. Disappointed because there were so many good reviews.

Marble + Rye has an extensive drink menu with a lot of unique cocktails I have never heard of before. They also have lots of very good whiskey selections compared to most restaurants.

The food was outstanding. We had their picked onion rings, ribeye steak, and pasta carbonara, followed by a huge slice of homemade Russian honey cake and a small carafe of French press coffee. All of their desserts are made in-house, and the coffee was spectacular.

Our server was perfectly attentive the entire night. We had a show to attend at Shea’s afterwards, but we had no issues with time because our food was prepared promptly and our server was always around to check on us.

Their menu is seasonal and changes regularly, so I look forward to seeing what other delicious options await us the next time we visit.

Fantastic food and service. Wonderfully accommodating waitress, hostess, and barstaff. The pickled Onion Rings and pickle plate are must haves, as is the burger and the Beef Tartare.

My girlfriend and I came here for our 2nd Anniversary and we were blown away by the hospitality and service. The price was incredibly affordable, and you can’t beat this place in terms of quality (both the food and the service) and vibe. I would recommend Marble + Rye to everybody.

Come for the cocktails and ambience, and get blown away by the quality of the meals. Our crew enjoyed the chips to start which is a must and the brussel sprouts which are delicious. The burgers and pasta dishes are great. Definitely dining here again.

Disappointing overall experience. Arrived early and were asked to wait at the bar 45 minutes until our reservation time. We typically would not mind, but there were several open tables (which remained open while we were waiting and during our meal).

When we were being seated, hostess said no when we asked if we could sit at a table against the wall that we preferred. Instead we sat close to the door, which made for a rush of cold air whenever the door opened. That table against the wall sat vacant throughout our meal.

The bartenders and our waitress were friendly, but the lack of hospitality from the hostess put a damper on our night out.

Service was excellent throughout, beginning with complimentary champagne anniversary toast. Staff was very attentive and knowledgeable on menu and specials. Cold, rainy night in Buffalo but warm atmosphere inside this establishment. All courses were not only creative but of highest quality.

Dinner was fantastic. The cick peas and onion rings were a definite for ordering again. I had the octopus which was the best I have ever had. Dessert was a little bit of a key down compared to the apps and main course but still alright. Can't wait to come back and try some of the other options.

Our waitress was terrific. I asked about the drinks, which I know they are known for. She was quite helpful. I ended up with the Returning Correspondence, I will defiantly get it again. It is such a lovely spot, we will be back.
