Had a reservation and they made us wait in the basement bar and did not have a table for us at the upper bar we had reserved for. We ended up joining a friends table instead due to lack of seating. - not cool!

Food was incredible! I don’t normally write reviews but I had to for Marbl! Too good to not share. I had the 14oz striploin and my girlfriend had the tagliatelle pomodoro and we both loved it! Service was amazing too. Great vibes and perfect spot to go if you’re planning on having some drinks after dinner

Not a good first impression at all. We went downstairs to go to the washroom, and when we came back, they had seated a couple at our table who had their drinks and everything already served. Meanwhile our waiter arrived with our food and looked around in confusion to what was going on. And we were awkwardly standing there for ten minutes while they sorted this out. But hey, I’m sure the free dessert (which was OK at best), more than made up for that embarrassment. The food was good though, so at least they have that going for them. I doubt I’ll be going back.

Amazing evening! Food was incredible! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and cocktails and wines. After dinner we went downstairs to the champagne room which was fun too!!

We waited 30 mins for a drink (which they got wrong, then charged for wrong drink and the right one) over an hour just for appetizers (salads)
The chairs were so uncomfortable my back hurt when we left.
Overall terrible experience.

Nicest part of this restaurant is the bathroom

Expensive for a fine-but-not-rock-my-world dinner. Waiter was hovering around the whole evening and when we went to order a bottle of wine, he told us they were out of anything under $300 - which clearly wasn't true because the manager came over and proceeded to give us a bottle of what we asked for once we complained!!!!!

The food was not what they said in their menu they supposed to serve 48 oz steak which in reality it was 20 oz of meat and 28 oz bone . Also their appetizers was way over price and low quality. We have to wait 1 hour and a half for our food to come.

The service was very good however it took us over one hour to get our main course entrées after our appetizers… Extremely slow and much of the food was bland....

MARBL is trying to strike a delicate balance that few Toronto restaurants are able to achieve. It aspires to be a hip place to "see and be seen", while at the same time catering to those who enjoy good food and drink and are prepared to pay dearly for both.

Unfortunately, MARBL has a long way to go before it can achieve that balance. It certainly succeeds on the first count (hip and cool) - but when we were there on a busy Saturday night, it fell far short of the mark on the gourmet dining experience we were expecting.

Fortunately for MARBL, the demographic it appears to be most concerned about does not seem too concerned about (a) dishes being served lukewarm after waiting far too long under heat lamps, or (b) Caesar salad being served with enough dressing for 3 times the serving size, or other major shortcomings - they are there to have a good time before hitting the clubs afterward, and they are clearly enjoying themselves. As for the rest of us (for whom the food and drink does matter first and foremost), MARBL has a long way to go to get where it aspires to be. Fortunately the ownership and management does seem concerned about that, so maybe if they work hard at it they can get there - but as they say on Shark Tank, "I'm out".

The service was pretty slow all night. The food was average food but dressed up nicely. I enjoyed the ambiance and cocktails. I’d maybe go back for drinks but nothing more. One of my friends complained but only her bill was compensated. A bit disappointing since there were 5 other people who had the same experience.

EXCELLENT, TOP NOTCH customer service. Our server was so accommodating without being annoying. The women were so friendly at the front (which is rare for hostesses who sometimes come off as snobbish). The chicken tasted like rubber. I didn’t eat it so our server took it off the bill. Very kind of him

Everything was very good. I think the restaurant should consider a corking fee. The wine list is decent but when I know I'm going to spend a few hundred on food I would really like to make sure I'm having a wine I know and enjoy drinking. Would recommend Marbl

Great location. This place has a lot of potential. Unfortunately there was only 1 desert on the menu. Incomplete spirits menu, the server had the list written on a piece of paper. Server must move faster on the customers drink refills. The main course came immediately after the appetizers which was a bit too fast. The chefs were kind to make an exception and add black truffles to my main course which was a delight. Will return over time when the restaurant is more settled in but overall it’s a nice place. The managers are very attentive and welcoming along with the hostesses. Ambiance is great. Stylish furniture and set up. Love that you can see the kitchen live in action.

Although the restaurant had just opened I thought the wine list was pricy and not inclusive of Ontario and British Columian wines. The food was good but not over the top. Would have been nice to know the breed of cattle, what was the feed, and where raised.Will come back for a second look in Januar

Elegant space with comfy banquettes. Delicious apps like fondue with baguettes; meatballs and pesto atop soft polenta.
Friendly service. Can’t wait to return.

Extremely underwhelming. I was excited to try this place out but was so disappointed. The service was good but the food was over priced for what it was. Lacked in flavour and poor plating.

MARBL is amazing! Great food, great value, and the service and music was amazing. They were super accommodating of our very large group and our need to move quickly, and all of our food was excellent. Great decor and the music had a lot of Fleetwood Mac and was at the right volume to hear it nicely and still be able to carry on a conversation. Would definitely recommend and plan on returning! Thanks MARBL!
