My first time there and everything was mediocre… service was average, my veal was tough, something was wrong with the cocktail… we also got seated right near front door and there was plenty of other places to sit…I don’t think I’ll be back.

Marcellos was a fine dining experience. The wait staff was pretty amazing. For our anniversary they had a card waiting signed by everyone! When we arrived, they said they were expecting us! It was a great experience! The Creme Bruelee was amazing.

The food was outstanding as was our waiter. Was a perfect place to celebrate my birthday with my sweet daughter. The atmosphere was amazing. The portions of food were very generous. My daughter had plenty to bring with her to enjoy at her house at LSU. My birthday dessert was delicious, and more than enough to share with her.

It has been a great place to go to with friends and family for a great meal, wonderful service and relaxing atmosphere!

I have a request. Please consider adding Seafood Cioppino to the menu. It would be great especially this time of year. It has been on the menu before and was delicious!!!
Thanks!!
