Marvin offers Los Angeles a unique dinner experience, as well as a weekend brunch. On a regular basis, a special event is presented, such as a pizza and wine party that is a ton of fun. Happy hour is also a great time to experience all that Marvin has to offer. It is hard to describe the cuisine as it covers a lot of territory. The ratatouille and goat cheese toast appetizer takes you to France, the spaghetti carbonara to Italy and small plate experience is classic Spanish tapas-style dining. With a variety of cheeses and charcuterie from France and Italy, the overall experience Marvin is quite Mediterranean.

Its very casual and basic in terms of decor. Our waitress didn't know the differences between some of the cheeses and just wasn't very engaging. The food was ok, not great and a bit on the heavy side. the best thing we had was the chocolate pot de creme for dessert. It's nice to know it's in the neighborhood but I am not certain I would go back.

They still accommodated with no issue. The items on the menu were delicious. Had an issue with one of the mimosas, in which our server immediately resolved it. I enjoyed the atmosphere and that it was very laid back. I will return again with friends for a nice Saturday brunch. The only negative thing I would have to say about the visit was of the street parking, so it makes it a little more difficult. I will definitely leave a little earlier than normal so that I am not late for my reservation. Thank you again for the wonderful service!

I apologize I can't remember is name...Jonah? Judah? He was terrific. We brought my husband for his birthday - two little girls in a place meant for grownups. Our server was kind and patient and went above and beyond to make them comfortable.

It's a bit loud, as the acoustics echo around the empty tomato cans hanging from the ceiling. If you don't mind the noise, it's an A+ restaurant. The food has amazing flavored and the menu is interesting and diverse. They also have great beer and wine (no liquor).

The music was super loud, the other tables seemed to be friends and family of either the retaurant of the chef... a beer was $9, wine was $12-18/glass and it took FOREVER to be served. I still like the freerangeLA truck but their pop up need a bit of work.

The interior is tasteful and current but doesn't fall prey to all the typical markings of a new restaurant. It has its own style and draws a diverse crowd of young and the young at heart. The music is well curated, mostly classic 70's and 80's. The wine list will excite anyone who knows or cares about wine. Great list! The staff is attentive (not intrusive) and knowledgeable. They look like they take their jobs seriously but have fun while doing it. And the food! Try the amazing happy hour and you'll get a flavor of the menu. The asparagus and egg on brioche toast is decadent but not too rich. The burger is bomb! And the desserts are maybe my fave. But I'm partial to sweets. If you can't already tell, my recommendation is, get yo self to Marvin!

I started with the toast with fresh tomatoes and Spanish ham. It was ample and delicious, definitely Spanish. Then I had the steak tartare, which was quite pale, so it must have had something mixed in, but it was quite good. My husband had the corn soup and the special pasta which was a ravioli containing quail. He loved both. Our daughter ordered the "pot roast" which also was very good. We definitely would dine here again.

We shared appetizers and everyone tried each others entrees and shared two desserts, and there was nothing we didn't like! And we brought two bottles of wine that went well with our food. I recommend everything we had: Small plate of Jamon Iberico De Bellota Soup of the day- a truffle tortilla soup Burrata Steak Tartare Foie Gras- warm Roasted Chicken Braised Lamb Duck Rigatoni Bolognese Cream spinach Potato Gallette Chocolate Souffle Pot de Creme

Chez Marvin killed it!! The food was amazing, ambiance was hip and vibrant, wine list was superb and the service was totally on point. We sat at a table, but you we could have just as easily and enjoyably sat at the bar. The Owner Max is a great guy who welcomed us warmly and delivered healthy pours of wine as we talked about the menu. If I lived in this area (currently live in Scottsdale), I would eat there twice per week, no doubt!

Right when we walked in we noticed the tin cans and Christmas lights strung on the ceiling that made the place festive. They only serve wine but had a great selection. We ordered the fried artichokes and Burratta heirloom salad to start. Then had their Butter Chicken entree which was cut into 4 chunks. It was very tasty. Great place for a date !

Music way too loud so it was really hard to converse! Seemed to appeal to a younger, less sophisticated crowd. Food was fair but expensive for what it was. We tried..

This has been corrected -- much easier to talk during dinner. Food is fresh and delicious -- steak frites notably good, due to the quality of the cut of meat. We sat at a two-top against the back wall. The person facing the wall has really such a poor view, beside seeing your dining partner of course. Basically you can only see the wall without significant torso rotation. Wonder if they could turn those tables 90 degrees?
