    Food was at best average and overpriced. Music a little too loud making it harder to hold a conversation and seats uncomfortable digging into the back of lower leg. Service was otherwise good with friendly, helpful and plentiful staff.

    I loved having my birthday dinner here: delicious food and great service. Not cheap by Rockaway standards but good for special occasions! Lots of outdoor seating on the large deck with views of the city and the beach - lovely!! And that beach breeze to top it all off:)

    Service was horrible. Manager and waiter tried to rip us off by charging $20 for dessert that was already included in the restaurant week menu. It took over 2 1/2 hrs for the appetizer and main course. We never got our dessert and finally left after they tried to cheat us. No excuses or apology was made. We will never come here again and will not recommend to any of our neighbors or friends and family. Food was nothing special, so why go back.

    They advertised they are part of restaurant week for brunch but when I got there I was informed that restaurant week is only available Mon - Fri. And there is no brunch on those days. Also they are very expensive and the food portions are small and they charge 18% tip. $92.00 for brunch party of one. Way to expensive. Here's a tip service bigger for portions

We had restaurant week menu all four of us, black bass almondine one chicken roasted and salmon, ceasar salad and calamari delicious drinks and desserts.

    The way this restaurant is portrayed on the website and on social media is a bit deceiving. The roof dining area is small, no views really besides the neighboring apt buildings. Food was just ok I had a dozen of oysters and a Caesar salad. The oysters were very murky and sandy. Salad was so salty that I couldn’t finish it. The service however was top notch. Yanilla and Ralph were outstanding!

    The food was decent and drinks tasty. I guess I expected it to look like the pictures posted on their website but the ambience fell short. We were seated at a dirty table that the host tried to wipe a spot with his hand. Instead of having someone wipe it down. I was able to flag a nice bus person who wiped it down for us afterwards. The whole experience isn't worth it. It's French so I assumed it was going to be a bit classy but I guess being in Rockaway and by the beach it was just a regular overpriced restaurant. The bathrooms were super dark and dirty. I would not come back here again nor recommend it.

    Food was average but generous, the ambiance was nice, good combination of 80’s/90’s music hits. Prices was average in comparison of Manhattan. At first, we were over questioned if we were ready. However, at the end, we were reassigned to different table due to the weather and ignored at all. I might come back for another opportunity. 😉

    Everything was okay until I asked for the fries to go. They put it together with the leftovers. They include an 18% tip, which is perfect but the server charged us another 10% on top of it without even letting me know that I was being charged the amount.

    My husband and I went for dinner last night. It was our third time for dinner here. We really enjoyed everything we ate. The menu has changed quite a bit from our previous trips here and we preferred the old menu. We miss the escargot and French onion soup!! When the DJ first started it was so loud I had to yell to be heard. It was so uncomfortable I said this alone would stop me from coming back. Thankfully, they did lower the volume to a much more acceptable level.

    Bar MarseilleResponded on May 23, 2022Hi Carol! Thank you so much for your review. We love seeing returning guests join us again. We will let the kitchen know about about possibly having some of our old menu items as specials. That way we can give guests like yourself, something from the old menu to offer. We value all of our guests opinions. We apologize the volume of the DJ and will make sure to keep the volume at an appropriate level for our guests. We hope to see you and your husband over again soon!

    Great service and food! Staff is extremely friendly and we love coming here. Only thing I would suggest is checking cleanliness a little before opening. Our table clothes and the table clothes next to us were really dirty (looked like coffee stains) and there were food crumbs on our seats and floor (didn’t look like anything was wiped down from the previous service). In these tough times, we completely understand this being overlooked. We still had a great meal and date night. 😊

    This is our neighborhood “place for special occasions”. We have been regulars since it opened. We so want it to live up to our experiences at the other restaurants in the group. After family Easter dinner, we came away scratching our heads. Service was spotty - a starter delivered with an entree and entrees were delivered at different times almost 8 minutes apart. No idea why a grilled artichoke was worthy of inclusion as an entree! Please do better! We want you to be successful!
