    The ambiance at this restaurant is delightful, but the food left something to be desired. My NY Strip was a bit tough and needed more seasoning, and unfortunately, the Pomme Dauphinoise was missing from our meal due to the kitchen forgetting to prepare it for the night. We settled for the regular mashed potatoes and corn au gratin, which were just okay. However, the sticky toffee pudding was absolutely amazing. Overall, while the ambiance is nice, don't expect to be blown away by the food here. Plus, we had an unwelcome guest—an insect crawling on the table. Seems the Michelin Guide missed its mark on this one.

    Service was impeccable. Kevin was our primary server and he went above and beyond to ensure our experience was impeccable. The steal was exquisite! Juicy, flavorful and cooked to perfect! 10/10! I would absolutely return to Marcel!

    Had reservation for 8 pm to celebrate my sons birthday. This was our third time there and it was the worst experience. Service was incredibly slow and the food was below par especially considering the prices. We wanted to order appetizers then entrees separately but our server made us order it all at once after we received our cocktails which took forever. Said they could time it better, not really. Once we ordered the oysters and salads came out in an ok amount of time but the entrees took FOREVER. Our severs were apologetic but nothing was done. For an 8 pm reservation we did not get our entrees served to us until 9:45. Really put a damper on the evening. My filet was cooked ok but the juice on the plate was watery, no flavor. I would have complained and sent it back but we just want to be done and get out of there. We like Ford Fry restaurants but this was the worst. The severs were nice and fun but they could do nothing about the kitchen.

    Wellington was unseasoned and chewy. Not tender at all, which is hard to do with a filet. Worst, most expensive food I have ever eaten.

    Overall one of the worst experiences we have had here. 5th time coming and it has gotten worse with each visit. They did accomodate us bringing an extra guest and traffic delaying us 20 mins so that is worth a star. Charcuterie starter is always pretty good. Crab appetizer was gross. Oyster appetizer was tiny and overcooked. Some so small you just don't want to chance eating it. Bone in filet was full of fat. There was not one good bite on it. 8oz filet was decent but no seasoning just a melted butter in the plate. Sides are for 1 not a table and don't taste good. We have had all of the potato options, all bad and uneventful. Corn was full of grease. Baked Alaska was a dessert we were looking forward to but we should have listened to the server when he offered a different one multiple times. Apparently they change the fruit and crust and the Strawberry Shortcake with chocolate ice cream was gross. Burnt marshmallow flavor just added to the bad flavors. We had 2 servers, the first was not present whatsoever except for the order. Would disappear for 30 mins to get sweet tea. Now I'm sure simple syrup was coming from the bar so it would probably be delayed from drink making but still it was a bit much. The 2nd server was AWESOME! Also the one who said skip the baked Alaska. I'd give him 10 stars if I could do that separately. Unfortunately, we won't be back anytime soon. Not worth the $668 tab. Too many great places in Atlanta to waste a dinner here again.

    This was my first time at Marcels. This well definitely NOT be the last! A close friend from out of town suggested we go here!The service was fantastic! My server Anthony was super helpful and made this dining experience that much better! I mentioned to him that I was in the restaurant industry and told him about my pizzeria. When he came back with our order he brought back little mini pizzas for us! I’m never going to forget that! I’m excited to be back with more friends and family!

    My husband and I frequent Marcel because their restaurant experience is excellent, bar none. This time we chose to wrap up Valentine’s Day weekend here. Per usual, we were greeted with a warm welcome and immediately taken to our seats. Our servers Mark and Sonny were top notch! We dined here before but we were still told about the menus and given excellent suggestions. My husband and I were unsure of the dessert choice but thanks to Sonny’s strong suggestion to get the “Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake” our evening closed at Marcel with the amazing experience we always enjoyed. We live kinda far but We’ll continue to return!

    Words cannot express how amazing this experience was. The moment my date and I walked into Marcel, we knew we were in for something special. The ambiance of Marcel makes for a great date night and they exceeded our expectations by stamping my date and I menu with happy anniversary. The food was some of the best we've had, but what exceeded everything was the service. Laura and Mark were so personable and went above and beyond to make our evening special. Mark personally had some of the staff sign our menu wishing us a happy anniversary. Have not been able to stop talking about how great this place was and highly recommend everyone to try Marcel if they get the chance.

    Marcel is an excellent place for a date! My lady and I loved it. The ambience was perfect. The music was superb for the evening. We definitely felt the love in the atmosphere from everyone on Valentine's Day. My lady quoted "This place is in her Top 5 for restaurants in Atlanta!" I feel the same way. Thanks, Marcel!!!!!!!!

    The service was a 10/10 my first time here I felt the ambiance was pretty dope and chill. But the food I have to say I frequent a lot of steakhouses and this by far was one I just can’t seem to give over a 6.5 on the meal I had.. I understand the evening was busy because of Valentine’s Day and the prefix menu is what was being offered but as far as the lobster it was very though and difficult to chew the steak could have had just a lil more touch of seasoning added, the pork belly came out cold in the middle twice. But overall I may try them again on a different night/ occasion when the full menu would be available and see what Marcel really has to offer.

    Marcel, even on a less-than-perfect evening is overall excellent. That said, the Valentine’s Prix Fix menu wasn’t great for the cost pp. Additionally - and it pains me to say this - the seafood wasn’t what’s should have been: The shrimp were tough and salty, and the oysters were suspiciously “fishy” and the lobster was overcooked. The steak, sides and dessert however, were phenomenal. Service at the bar and by the seating host were, as ever, top-notch. I will always return to Marcel for a stellar meal and evening, but for another busy Prix Fix night, it’s doubtful.

    We went for the Valentine’s Day experience so this may not be representative but it was not good. The service was poor - took 2.5 hours to get through the meal and we waited about 30 minutes between each course. The food was even worst than the service. Steak was undercooked and almost all of the food was lacking in flavor including the steak which seemed to not even have salt. This is definitely the most over priced meal I have ever paid for.

    I'm sorry, but paying over six hundred dollars for a Valentine's 4-course prix fixe and having to share our selection of the main dish, including some of the pre-course selections, was excessive. While the service was excellent, the food was just ok. We had the tomahawk steak and lobster, which was just ok. The pre-course pork belly was all fat, and the short rib pre-course was not seasoned. My Caesar salad was slightly soggy, and our creamed corn was too salty. We expected better for a $695 meal and should be offered a retry
