Marsha Brown Ratings and Reviews
My wife eat at Marsha’s on special occasions such as Valentines Day or our anniversary. The food is terrific. The philly area has a dearth of cajun/creole food but this place fills the void. The old church building is both funky and welcoming. Our server, Adrian was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and attentive to us. But we came for the food and were wwqvery satisfied. The jambalaya was terrific with hunks of craw, crawfish and sausage in a deep and spicy rue (sp?). My wife had crab cakes which were crispy and not soaked in grease. Hunks of crab with very little filler seasoned to perfection. We shared crawfish risotto and oh my. This decadent dish was unbelievably delicious. Finally we ended with the bread pudding which was warm, sweet and delightful. My only complaint is that I wish marsh’s was closer to DELCO. Please keep up the great food!
We had Valentine's Day dinner at Marsha Brown's. The food was very good. The setting is outstanding. The service was excellent. We had a very nice time. It does get a little loud upstairs making it difficult to hear at times, but all in all, it was an outstanding experience - as it always is!
The New Orleans Creole fare is yummy. Former church with murals and stained glass is part of the decor. Service was excellent especially on such a big ‘dining out’ evening.
I love lobster on Valentine’s Day! Green beans side dish was wonderful.
Great dessert drinks was a nice flourish. The finish was with a single pink rose and a heart shaped chocolate which ended the night out. It was very romantic.
Celebrated Valentine's Day with dinner at Marsh Brown's. Been waiting a while to try this restaurant and they didn't disappoint. Beautiful restaurant. Made reservations and were seated well within our expectations. Food was excellent and service was great. Have to come back to try the pecan pie! It was a packed house, so it was a bit on the noisy side. Definitely will return - I have to try the entire menu.
My GF and I had dinner on Valentine's Day. This was her first time but I've been to MB for a work event so I was familiar with the menu and decor. Despite being fully booked, the noise level was bearable and the staff was very attentive. Maybe this was the Valentine's Day staff but still, they were prepared for it. GF liked the decor, especially the Delacroix inspired wall painting and our waiter knew the history. We both had the beet salad and lobster bisque; nicely done. GF had the crawfish etouffee and I had the eggplant Ophelia, both nicely done, and bread pudding for dessert...really good. Seems like the menu hadn't changed much since, just small tweaks to the creole theme.
Great ambiance - a little loud, but not overly. Tried the gumbo and while it tasted good, it was a soup...not a gumbo. Steaks were good but had been sitting too long due to the poor service and the crab cakes could use more spice. The desserts were ok, nothing great.
Not a fan of southern cooking. Definitely crabbed out by the end of meal. Too rich and heavy. I’m vegetarian with some seafood. Not much choice for me. It was very loud and we were sitting on the quiet 3rd floor. Service wasn’t outstanding either, which is odd for an all male wait staff at my table. Probably wouldn’t go back.
Overpriced for slightly above average food. Beautiful converted church. Made reservations but, still needed to wait 25 min, not terrible. Catfish appetizer contained almost no fish and over fried to a crisp. Coconut shrimp appetizer was small, after being told the shrimp were huge. Meals all came out at different times. One meal was 15 min after the others. Apparently it was dropped and the server never mentioned it. He still put it on the bill which we had removed. Spend your money elsewhere.
Excellent food, great service and wonderful ambiance!
Make it right story: Shortly after being seated we were asked to move to a different table. Apparently a party of 20 was scheduled a bit later and they needed the space. It was odd and a bit uncomfortable but moved without complaint. We were comped an $85 bottle of wine and 4 deserts. Oh, and the new table was better.
From the moment you walk in to this church that has been transformed into a warm original place you feel like you’re there for a worship of a different kind - that of delicious food, beautiful surroundings and a wait staff that is friendly and professional.
While it was my first time dining at Marsha Brown’s, it certainly will not be my last. Everything was amazing, from the food, to the decor, to the wait staff. The menu had a good variety of dishes for all different palettes. The wine menu was rather extensive, with a few of my favorite bottles. I’ve never tasted anything quite like the crab cheesecake - it was one of my favorite dishes. The raw bar was extremely fresh and their jambalaya was one of the best I’ve ever had. I’m extremely thankful to my friend who recommended it, and plan to be a repeat customer for years to come.
The food is as notable as the setting. Delicious cajun food -- we sampled the jambalaya and salmon and shrimp over grits, and loved both. The restaurant is a converted church, and it's beautiful. When you go upstairs, you emerge into a giant, open space filled with tables and a very high ceiling. I would recommend this for special occasions of all kinds. The service was also good. We'd go back in a second.
Have heard a lot about Marsha Brown's and have been wanting to go for years. Finally made it there to celebrate a birthday. The food was outstanding, as was the service. Our table was decorated with confetti and a sash for the birthday celebration which was a nice touch. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
everything was excellent until a member of the kitchen staff brought our food out to us. our waitress was nowhere to be found and he didn't seem to be a usual food runner. I ordered tournedos and he put the plate in front of me and said here's your tornados. It may seem like a silly thing but for the New York prices your paying you expect either your waiter or waitress to bring your food. And to check back with you to see if everything was ok. She was very nice but had multiple tables. This wasn't our first time here and we love coming here yearly around our anniversary so just a bit disappointed in the actual food serving. desert was on the house which was nice and the manager brought over rose petals which was a sweet touch. maybe have actual food runners next time and it would've been perfect. We will dine here again in the future.
