My wife and I went to eat for a nice dinner date to celebrate her new job that she just started. We were seated at the worst table next to the kitchen and restrooms even though we mentioned all the other seats available.

My rating is due a lack of concern for my dietary restrictions. I specifically requested that an ingredient be excluded from my meal. I was told by waitstaff that they “think” the ingredient was not part of the meal. Once the everyone’s food came out, I was asked if it was “really a concern” because it was accidentally put on my meal. I appreciated the attempt at reconciling the issue; however my initial request should have been taken more seriously and based on presentation I think the item was removed and not actually prepared again. So that was disappointing.

Server was very knowledgeable, pleasant. At times when we needed a few more minutes it ended up being awhile before he returned. This was not a huge deal. Overall a great experience.

The happy hour cannot be beat! Half price apps, salads, drinks, and more. Where can you get a salad for $3.50?? Place was noisy but food was good.

Poor service. Took over 35 mins from being sat to order anything. Had to flag down and ask for refills for drinks. Not enough space on table. Not enough effort to clear table.

We were tucked away in the perfect spot away from the crowd. The server was great and the food was AMAZING! I’ve been to Marcellas - few times and every time wonderful experience but this time reminded me how I need to get over there more often!

the place was great as it is the case with most Cameron Mitchel restaurants.
it sucks when you get pre-judged by your server though, they see you and think that you are not going to leave a good tip so they don't show any effort.
it has happened in the past and unfortunately it will happen again

The linguini with clams is my absolute favorite and this time I was terribly disappointed. The sauce was not warm throughout and that caused the sauce to thicken.
We also had the penne ala vodka and will be my last time ordering that, I believe I have had frozen dinners better. I hate to leave a negative review but this is my fav restaurant ever ! I fly from Denver every few months just to eat at marcellas.

The food was amazing, didn’t really see our server a lot when ordering things took a while to get to the table we had to wait longer than anyone should to order more things so we unfortunately left earlier than we wanted too.
