Food and drinks were prepared to our orders, prepared very well, just as previous articles had described them to be. We highly recommend this restaurant. Next time we’re going to try to be seated near the bar. It looks awesome!

    We both were very disappointed in this establishment. It was our 25th Anniversary and we were looking forward to making this a great evening. It started when we arrived, my husband is physically challenged so we asked the valet if there was another way in without climbing two levels of stairs and they informed us that it was not. So we took the difficult route up the stairs and finally made it to the top. Our reservation was at 8pm and we arrived at 7:50, was seated fairly quickly even though we requested a different table than the small two seater at the front entrance of the dinning area. Our two waiters were very pleasant, but it took forever to put our appetizer order in and after that it went downhill. We had to wait approx. 20 minutes after finishing the appetizer before the salad arrived. Now this is where it gets interesting, we had to wait another 30 mins before the entrée arrived after we finished the salads. My husband ordered the fish of the day oyster style and I ordered the bone-in filet mignon cooked (Medium Plus). After waiting 30 mins for our entrée my steak comes to the table crisp charred black. The lighting in the restaurant is typical low lighting so as soon as the waiter put it on the table I looked at my husband and said let me see your phone (to use the flashlight), I knew something was wrong. I cut the steak and all I tasted was hard charred burnt taste. I sat there as my husband ate his food and eventually one of our waiters stopped by to see if everything was okay and immediately he knew the steak was not cooked properly and asked if he could have another one prepared. At this point it was approx. 10pm and I said no we have already been here 2hrs waiting to eat and he acknowledged the fact, that's all that was said. The waiter reappeared later and said they were going to take care of the steak cost, which I didn't ask for. We both were very disappointed, but I went home hungry. What an experience on our 25th Anniversary.

    My husband and daughter selected Marcel to celebrate both Mother's Day and my birthday. The ambiance and food were great overall, service good except for our main server. She either didn't want to be at work or didn't want to serve us. Either way, it did not enchance our experience. Her flat demeanor remained through our sitting. The other staff who came to our table were pleasant and other servers with their guests, which made her gloomy communication damper my festive occasion but we recommend and would return but ask for anyone else. We ordered shrimp scampi, hamburgers, scalloped potatoes, chicken, fries and drinks (alcohol).

    This is my favorite restaurant. I always order the same thing. Shrimp scampi and the chicken. I know, yes I order chicken at a steak restaurant. The oysters were very small and dry. No condiments such as horseradish or cocktail sauce came with the dish or were offered. The french onion soup and lobster risotto was overly salty. Even my chicken was a bit salty but I was hungry due to the hour wait for the food. The server was not very personable or attentive. This was my first time having such experience so I won’t hold it against the restaurant. May have been an off night.

    always a great evening at Marcel when you get a sit at the bar and drink your favorite cocktails with the best bartenders and Atlanta and eat the best steak in town, but don’t overlook the veal Parmesan might be the best thing on the menu

    The music was blaring at 5:30. So loud we could not converse. We (and table next to us) were only tables sat in the back room and asked staff to turn down music. Finally when they could not hear us to take our order they turned it down. Dinner came and they turned music to blaring again. Aged ribeye was excellent/perfect and but the experience was not good at all and we won’t be returning nor will we be recommending.

    Excellent customer service. Excellent ambience. Very attentive and provided a beautiful "experience" for our anniversary. Spent 400.00 but was not impressed by the food. Husbands steak was 129.00 and lacked flavor. I ordered a fish plate with Oscar and was not seasoned but the caper sauce helped. Scalloped potatoes needed salt. Shrimp scampi and Caesar salad was tasty. Would recommend for the Experience only.

    Dessert was fantastic, very diverse wine and cocktail menu, staff was generally attentive. But lactose-intolerant beware, every side they offer outside of the asparagus is caked in cheese, from their potatoes to their pasta. Steak was good, scallops were great, I just think it’s a bit pricey for the quality and quantity.

    Enjoyed a meal with family for my daughter's 30th birthday this past Saturday. The food and service were absolutely outstanding! For a special occasion, Marcel is a go-to without question, but a bit too pricey for day-to-day dining in Atlanta in my opinion. Party of 6 was just under 4 figures and I brought my own wine for the occasion, corkage of which was provided gratis, thank you, much appreciated. With that said, for a hallmark experience, Marcel is exceptional, and our evening lived up to every bit of that expectation. Nick, our primary server, was superbly knowledgeable on food, drink and wine options and super helpful in guiding each of us to a wonderful, personalized culinary experience. Melinda was excellent, too, always attentive and available, adding significantly to the experience. The rest of the serving team did a fantastic job, as well. Absolutely brilliant service from beginning with cocktails in the bar to dessert at the table. All in all, one of my favorite places to dine in Atlanta, and certainly if you are a steak fan. I would highly recommend Marcel, with the caveat that you prepare yourself for a wonderful evening, while not being surprised when the check arrives.

    Marcel is not the easiest place to actually locate and is hidden up a drab outside staircase. However going inside is quite another story, low light, dark and a stuffed fox. We were on time but had to wait for our table. They do a good job of trying to make things unique and it’s a good show. Our servers were good, efficient and the food was very good. It was certainly worthwhile coming out from the Ritz to dine here

    This was our first time at the restaurant. The food tasted very good but we had a problem when half our table was served their entrees and the others served 6-7 mins later and their food was cold. When pointed out the manager comped our drinks and gave us one free dessert for the table. Probably just an off night.

    Marcel is our favorite place for celebrations. Tonight was Mom’s 83rd bday. Every course has yummy options. Most of our party gets steak. Tonight I had the halibut special, Oscar style. It was one of the best seafood dishes I’ve had in a long time. As always, the Baked Alaska was fabulous. Special thanks to Ché and Ellen for taking such great care of us.
