The restaurant looks too dark and small with the back area closed
Terrible service - had to flag down our server every time to order and menu is overpriced for the quality of food + portions.
Always a great location to meet up with friends.
Cauliflower and John burger never disappoints.
I love everything about this place. Server was very attentive. They have good variety of cocktails. Food was great! Ordered John’s burger, and it was delicious, black angus was served medium with braised brisket with brioche bun. Hands down, one of the best burgers in the city. I also love the ambience, cozy and suitable for a perfect date spot.
We had a wonderful dining experience at Marben. The food was delicious, the drink selection on point, and everyone was extremely customer-focused and provided wonderful service.
The food was amazing and our server was outstanding. Friendly, informative and very knowledgeable about the menu item....a sure delight. It was a fantastic evening!
Really good brunch! Our server was very attentive. We were celebrating my partner's birthday and they gave us a broughnut on the house! Would definitely go back.
Marben was beautiful and delicious. For our first night in Toronto for a quick trip, it did not disappoint. The food was creative and yummy. I ogled the freshly baked brioche so much that the chef personally delivered a complimentary bun to our table. It. Was. Amazing. Made with beef fat instead of butter and just as delicious as that sounds. My chicken dish was a bit small and left me feeling a tiny bit under-satisfied, but overall, this place is excellent. Highly recommend.
John’s Burger is a must have!!
This is my favourite burger in Toronto 😁
Thank you Marben!
Great place. Very comfy and homey feeling. Food at brunch was fantastic. Quick, simple, no fuss. Found the food was reasonably priced as well. Parking is a bit of a pain, gotta get lucky or pay up. Definitely will come back to marben for brunch. Can still taste to brough-nut......
Food was great and so was the service. Very good atmosphere
Amazing flavours and delicious food, however appetizers are very small portions. Difficult to share with more than 2 people, even if you get multiple apps. Main meals were impressive. Steak entrees have only a small garnish accompanying. Really great service and overall love the atmosphere! Would return to try the family style main meal.
The service at Marben was fantastic! Jordan was extremely knowledgeable and super friendly! Food was amazing too!
Food was very good, service was beyond excellent. This will not be our last time to eat at this restaurant. I whole heartedly reccomend this restaurant
Great food and service. Not cheap but I believe value was there. So nice to have a place that has zero TVs; classic soul music thru lunch was terrific. My son said it's a definite 'come again' place.
The burger is fantastic! and great habanero sauce recommendation by our waitor
Highly recommend. The minor complaint would be the servings on the ploughman board were small, however everything was very tasty.
Loved the place, loved the space!! Great food and great value . Will definitely return.
Would recommend for an expensive date. Found food to be absolutely delicious but very over priced and very small portions
Awesome meal and amazing cocktails- we sat at the bar which was really fun. Julie and Jason (Bartender’s) were amazing!
Service was slow to start. It got better as the meal went on.
Definitely found it over priced. Things have changed - it’s like the quantity of the food went down but the prices went up.
Service was amazing
The staff at the restaurant were very professional and welcoming. The food was amazing, as were the drinks.
My mother and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Marben. I would like to return sometime with the whole family.
Service was fantastic and friendly. I felt the restaurant was welcoming. The food was comforting and delightful - variety of textures and flavours. It was a business dinner and Marben provided exactly the type of experience that aligns with my business' brand (local, sustainably sourced ingredients, friendly, unpretentious atmosphere). My guests were impressed.
Great staff, loved the touch of picking your own egg.
John’s burger was amazing, but Monique stole the show.
She was next level Lit.
No wonder she got on the jumbotron
Love this place! My son (15) and I travel to Toronto every year from NS to see a Raptors game and he ALWAYS wants to come here! Always great!
Marben was a revelation to me and my guests - great ambiance ( love the jars at the front of the restaurant), fantastic service ( warm, welcoming ), great cocktails ( I love bartenders who don't mine experimenting ) and delicious food!
Always have a great experience for brunch at Marben. I’d love a little more variety on the brunch menu but it’s still solid. Our server Dan was was the bomb! Thank you Marben for another great experience!
Have had decent experiences at Marben before, but was disappointed during my latest visit. Server was highly unaccommodating to all requests. Initially asked for mimosas to be made with grapefruit juice rather than orange juice if possible, which the server confirmed would be possible after much hesitation. When the mimosas were brought to the table, they were made with orange juice. Though we did not say anything, the server expressed that he was "extremely frustrated" with the bartender and seemed angry and distraught. That being said, he did not offer to swap the drinks...he said that if we buy another one, he will ask to have them made with grapefruit (WTF?). When asked for other very simple accommodations with our menu items (e.g., no butter, no blue cheese), server was unaccommodating despite very simple requests.
My friends had gotten engaged that day, so I put a note in the reservation request, and right after we sat down they had glasses of champagne for us! From that moment until after dinner drinks and dessert, the experience was spectacular. Thanks for making their night such a memorable and delicious one!
This was a great find
The burger was over the top
Casual friendly place
Will be back
Great food. Not noisy. Good service. (It was a snow day but the restaurant was still busy.)
Friends and family get together
We sat at the chef's counter and it was an incredible experience. Loved looking in to the kitchen. All the food was delicious, using local ingredients that were in season and immaculately plated. Our server, Dan, was very knowledgeable and helped us make decisions.
Very nice decor and atmosphere - restaurant is split up into two levels (basement is a much cozier atmosphere like a bar/speakeasy). Cocktail and beer on selection is very nice.
Food was delicious, but portion size for Winterlicious is a little bit lacking. Would suggest ordering a full sized entree.
Poor quality of dishes and low value for money
Good food and great service. Live DJ playing good music. Nice ambiance and atmosphere.
