    First bad experience at Marcelo's. 45 minutes to appetizers, 45 minutes more to the main course. Was told to order the Osso Bucco quick because they were running low, which I did. They told me I had the last one. About the time the mains should have been served, they told me there was a computer error and and no Osso Bucco. 30 minutes later the mains were served after I complained to the manager. They comped the apps and my one glass of wine. Bottom line, I walked out irritated, not sated. Too many really good alternatives to risk that again.

    Mr. Bill, we are greatly disappointed to read of your dining experience with us. From your review, we have made some adjustments to our reservation capacity so that we aren't overwhelmed or completely booked at one time so that this doesn't happen again. With it being your first bad experience, we do hope you give us another try. We are confident that our team will deliver a much better dining experience. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us.

    We had such a great dinner last night. I wish I would have gotten the name of the man that helped me pick out a bottle of wine, but wow, he was incredible. Our server was a great, the timing of the meal was spaced appropriately, and we really enjoyed oursevles. We don't go here enough, but that may start to change.

    We have been coming to Marcelo’s for 12 years and this was by far our poorest experience. In face this has always been a must visit when we come to see our daughter in Lafayette. Our first mistake was sitting outside where we constantly smelled the staff smoking around the corner from the patio. The food was not up to par with the bread the end bits of the loaf that we could hardly bite into. The calamari was fine. For some reason they split the salad we were sharing with our daughter into two portions for three people. The veal I had was chewy and the half portion of the seafood pasta had only two shrimps and no scallops or crab. The chicken dish and the dessert we wanted were both unavailable. Overall not a great experience and we won’t be rushing back.

    I was really hoping for a nice, quiet, enjoyable dinner. We were seated in the newer room and it was so loud!!!!!! The table next to us was so loud, we had to ask our server to repeat herself a couple of times because we could not hear. The food was delicious as always and the service impeccable. BUT, the noise level was awful.

    I'm not fond of tables where your sitting in a high traffic zone, with people passing behind you. With a two person table, that's where we got stuck. The food was very good, but mostly pasta. The seafood was sparse in my dish and the same for the sausage in my fiancee's. Our server, Camron, was fantastic.

    Marcello's of LafayetteResponded on May 17, 2022

    Mr. George, we are so sorry you didn't care for the table you were at. Please let us know next time you are unsatisfied and we will certainly move you if any other is available. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and will speak with Camron about where you were sitting and how we can possibly move that table to another area of the restaurant.
