I did a google search to find fine restaurants and Marcel was about the only top rated one we had not been to yet.

I had high expectations as the prices were higher than I remembered paying at other places such as Kevin Rathbun's and Chops. I will say that the last "nice" place we went was about a year ago and I am NOT adjusting for inflation in my comparison.

Service was outstanding. I have not a single complaint or suggestion regarding service.

My steak was a "small" 22oz tomahawk ribeye, nee, Côte de Boeuf, ordered medium rare. I think it was a little over but not so much as to send it back. As far as the flavor of the steak. meh. Again, I had high expectations this ala carte steak was $81. I have cooked choice ribeye at home that I liked better. Alas, I am inconsistent as hell.

My wife got filet at it was perfect. The side we ordered, (Pommes Dauphinoise) was best described as potatoes au gratin was excellent and perfect.

Objectively everything was just about perfect except the flavor of my steak and that is such a subjective thing anyway. I would go again and I would recommend Marcel to my family and friends.

The staff and food were excellent and could not have been better. Noise level was fine with socially distanced tables. We really enjoyed our experience. Prices were about 10% over valued but we would be ok with paying it again. Recommended!

Despite the COVID restrictions, the staff at Marcel is doing a great job! We loved our wait staff, Corinne and LaDarius, as well as the sommelier, Josh! The food was spectacular with the Baked Alaska as the highlight of the evening. Thanks again to Marcel for working so hard to accommodate safety protocols and still make it a magical dining experience!

We come here on special occasions because it is the best restaurant in the Atlanta area. The ambiance, service, and food is so good. It’s only been 3 days, and I’m ready to go back!

My favorite dish to get is cacio e Pepe with king grab on top. Amazing. My husband gets steak and it’s out of this world good. And the complimentary bread is what dreams are made of. Honestly!

Really hoping this place is around forever because I would absolutely go into mourning if they ever closed.

I would have given Marcel 5 stars except for two items: 1) my $18 martini tasted like a glass of water poured from a cocktail shaker that had previously been used to make something with vodka. Perhaps the bar tender used shaved or melting ice, or perhaps he/she forgot to add the vodka altogether? In either case, that's pretty unacceptable for such an expensive and elegant restaurant; 2) the food was over-salted, not to the point of being inedible, but I will definitely remember to ask my server to cut back on the sodium next time I visit. I'll also order a shot of vodka with a side of olives! LOL. That said, the service was excellent and made our night! Sorry for the lack of 5 stars, but if I were management, I would want to know.

My boyfriend and I celebrated our 3 yr. anniversary two days ago. Our dining experience was ABSOLUTELY UNPARALLELED. The food was sublime, and the hospitality we received from various staff members was outstanding. Also, our server TANNER was impeccable; he was friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. Hands down this dining experience was arguably one of the best I’ve ever had! I’m already planning my next visit, which will be soon.

Very nice place with excellent and timely service. Pretty much ends there. The food, and I'm not being an a-hole was no better than your standard steak house. And at 4 to 5 times the price; the value simply isn't there. Not only would I not return. I can't in good faith suggest this restaurant. I wondered why I have been in Atlanta 6 years and never heard of the place. I now know why!

I typically go to Marcel with larger groups and I always stay consistent with my menu choices (i.e. same steak/sides). Our group changed last minute and it ended up being just my wife and I. We decided to go "off menu" (our typical menu) and ordered the Sole and Veal. It was FANTASTIC! Marcel is more than just Steaks (even though they're great!). We had an excellent meal and Marcel did NOT dissapoint!

Marcel had been my favorite restaurant in ATL since it first opened. After our experience the other night, I highly doubt we’ll be back. Service was AWFUL. For what Marcel’s charges, I expect very good service. That’s not what we got.

I know we’re in a pandemic, but it appeared like Marcel had crammed the restaurant w/ too many people, while not enough staff to adequately / effectively serve guests.

Left Marcel frustrated and unsatisfied.

Examples: We had two servers, and still didn’t receive first round of drinks until about 15 minutes after we completed the bread service. Then, server only took a second drink order before entree came out. It wasn’t until 20 minutes after we had finished eating (w/ empty plates still in front of us) that server came to bus the table and ask if we wanted another round... (I could go on, but you get the gist...)

First time ‘out’ since COVID at our favorite restaurant. Still fantastic. Loved the service, food (order the beef Wellington for two 24 hours in advance). The $40 corkage is too high and yes it’s expensive, but we’ll be back.

Tanner and LeDarius are a fantastic team let’s start off by saying that. Our food, wine, and dessert were outstanding. We finished our dinner with a fantastic cigar on their patio which we will come back just for the patio and fire pit.

The experience was like no other. From the moment we walked in the door the service was impeccable; kind, helpful, and professional. The hostess was very pleasant and patient, our server Pamela was fantastic, and I believe we had Tom helping us as well. This was an absolutely wonderful dinner date, every single one of Pamela's suggestions was perfect, from the food, the wine, and the cocktails! I told Pamela that I was really in the mood for a cocktail that had the perfect balance of sweet citrus but smoky like a Mezcal or a scotch, and she recommended the penicillin which I had never had before, she hit the nail on the head with it it was unbelievable!The servings here are very generous and so of course are meant to be shared with great company. The ambience is so romantic with perfectly dim lights, relaxing background music, and just the right level of chatter from surrounding tables. They are taking Covid precautions very seriously from the moment you walk in the door so they are no worries there, if you are just considering this restaurant I highly highly recommend going ahead and making reservations especially on the weekends because they fill up so fast! I can't wait to return here for a celebration or just dinner
