This was our first eat-in-a-restaurant experience in Anchorage in almost exactly one year. We were celebrating my upcoming retirement and the fact that we are now fully vaccinated. We knew that dinner at Marx Bros Cafe would be wonderful and we were not disappointed. The meal and the service were superb!

This is truly the hidden gem for dinner that is above all others in Anchorage. The service is personal. The food is cooked to perfection. The attention to detail is second to none! Make a reservation, and see what fine dining should be but can only be had in a little house on 3rd Ave.

The food was wonderful. My rack of lamb was cooked to perfection and the portion was smoked duck over black tea was moist and succulent. Their famous Caeser Salad made table side was a really treat for my son. We ate every morsel. I have nothing but the best to say ands will come back with or without my grown kids.

Best dining experience I’ve had in Anchorage. Everything was fantastic. I think my roasted vegetables were a little too salty/too much sauce but I loved everything else. We had the grilled lamb, gnocchi, and cheesecake dessert. So good, would def recommend.

We had our first date night out in almost a year and we picked Marx Bros., they offered a Cajun menu to lure us in. We were seated at the only table right next to the fireplace, which was perfect on a very cold evening. This place is so cozy and one of the owners personably greeted us casually during the evening. The food is freshly prepared and is a memorable dining experience. If you haven’t tried Marx Bros. you need to put it on your list.

House made Caesar salad made table side was amazing. The Wagyu steak was so savory and delicious I couldn’t believe how amazing it was. The toast for the seafood mousse was perfectly toasted and the mousse was so good the plate was practically licked clean. The wine selection was absolutely breath taking. This restaurant is great for a date night or simple nice dinner. Some people in the restaurant were dressed very nice and others were more on the casual side. I highly recommend Marx Bros Cafe!

Ordered there Mardi Gras special, shrimp and crawfish ettouffe. The shrimp was good but I’ve had better rue and crawfish. Should’ve ordered the blackened king salmon like my fiancé.

Attended the Valentines Day special 5 course dinner with paired wines. Each course was amazing on its own. Each wine was truly wonderful. The Waygu short ribs and the paired wine was like being between two delicious cushions of love. Sat by the fireplace. Amazing evening.

I would recondmend Marx Bros. To everyone. The wine was superb, the two meals were outstanding, Van's Ceasar Salad made fresh at the table was over the top. The service lived up to what we expected. Want a great meal and a wonderful experience visit Marx Bros. For you next date night.
