For what you get, it is extremely over priced. You’d get better portions at Alo or Canoe.

Seasoning needs work.

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.

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.

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......

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.

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.

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.

She was next level Lit.

No wonder she got on the jumbotron
