Probably my favorite restaurant in Atlanta, and one of the best steakhouses I've ever eaten at the entire country. Ambiance is off the charts cool and the food is obviously outstanding; wait staff has just the right combination of attentiveness and non-intrusiveness.

Aaron And Michelle was friendly and knowledgeable
Provided great suggestions and well timed service.
The Marcel salad was a great start to the flavorful and perfectly prepared Cote de Boeuf, another name for bone in rib eye
Can’t wait to go back !

Everything was fantastic. Service from Pamela and Jenny was spot on. My boyfriend and I really loved the wine Jenny helped us select. The Beef Wellington was so delicious. Couldn't afford to go often but definitely great for a special occasion.

Some delay in service but overall good experience.

Took New Yorkers to this spot (knowing we have consistently high expectations for restaurants) and we loved it. The steak was one of the best we've had, and the ambience is very classy but still approachable/young compared to stuffier steakhouses around ATL.

Highly recommend. Great area as well.

Food service was incredibly slow. We had a 7:30 reservation and waited way to long for every aspect of our meal, not being done until 10:30 pm. Turned a fun celebration into a frustrating evening!

Love the place. However, the steak was not what I was expecting for the price (I had the bone in filet; not quite as flavorful or tender as I hoped). Regardless, a top Atlanta restaurant with great ambiance and service.

Just disappointed they did not check out my history before we ate. Server asked if we had eaten there before, which we have many times. Didn't recognize it was my husband's birthday, which I noted in the reservation.

Two different servers asked if we wanted to order drinks once we sat down...clearly not communicating.

$300 dinner and out in one hour and 20 minutes. Felt VERY rushed. Cleared off plates before my husband finished appetizer. Server was waiting close by watching me sign check and took away before we left table.

I know they were busy and were trying to get next reservations in, but geesh...I was really looking forward to relaxing, but didn't get to.

I very much enjoyed a romantic evening here. The staff were outstanding, especially the lovely young lady working at the front door (maybe Amber? I don’t remember her name...). We were unfortunately running late and she accommodated us as seamlessly as if we had been on time.
We had drinks at the bar and were well looked after, then we moved to the dining room and the service continued to be exceptional.
The food was delicious, we ate filet, cacio y pepe, Caesar salad and fois gras ... all were scrumptious, especially the fois gras.
I work in the restaurant industry and often find it irritating dining out if the service isn’t up to scratch. Here at Marcel the service was above par and so the whole night was wonderful.

Pricey for the quality of food - ran out of the sides we ordered and replaced with some they thought we may like and steaks are not as good as some area steakhouse steaks. Ambiance was awesome! That’s the best pet of Marcel. Great place for drinks, but not for dinner for what they charge.

Great experience here, loved the retro feeling and classic Continental / French-, inspired cuisine. Some people have complained about pacing but I'm pretty sure the prices are higher because they're not expecting as many table turns, so our 2+hours for dinner felt appropriate and relaxing. Solid/medium-size wine list, great gin choices (and either premium or housemade tonic).

All good! Food, drinks and service. We sat at the bar and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Bar staff was excellent. Had salad, oysters, steak and potatoes. Didn’t order dessert but they brought cookies, anyway. Marcel was great...but will put a big dent in your wallet.

Marcel is an old fashioned, high-end restaurant in all of the best ways. From the confirmation phone call to the valet bringing in the keys, our experience was near perfection. The food is traditional steak house fare at the very highest level. Delicious Caesar salad, perfectly cooked steaks and satisfying sides. There is no nouvelle anything. The best part of our visit was the extremely high level of service and attentiveness. You are treated the way every expensive restaurant should treat customers - with complete care for the diner's experience. My son dropped some food. Out of nowhere, our waiter Tanner buzzed by and dropped off a shout wipe. This is New York, old-school service that makes you want to return just to feel so welcomed.

Poor service. One guest almost choked to death on plastic in her salad. Steaks were cold, Cesar salad was poorly made. Fries were served
Cold. Do not go

After dining here last year on our wedding night, we decided to make this our yearly anniversary spot. Drew was once again our server, and he's incredible. Great with recommendations, he's personable and truly helps make dining here an experience.

We're already looking forward to coming back to celebrate year two, and I'm trying to convince my wife we can come here more often!

Marcel’s is extremely over priced. We have dined in the top restaurants in the world. We each had an old fashion cocktail, brought our own wine, had a shared steak and two sides and cost 170. This restaurant is obnoxious.
