Service was amazing food was delish as normal
Absolutely wonderful! Incredible food and service. The filet was the best I’ve ever had in my life!
Unfortunately I had another less than stellar experience at Marcel. The food is not the problem. The food is great. The service is simply unacceptable. Once again the incredible arrogance of the server is unlike anything in Atlanta. Our dinner for 4 took 3.5 hours. We waited for 50 minutes in between our salad and main course, and not one time did our server come to our table. Not once did our server bother to check if we needed another drink, water, or to pour the three bottles of wine. They also vintage substituted a bottle without a word. That was my last straw. In their defense the Sommelier did comp after we spoke. Everyone has an off night, but this was my second similar experience but more extreme than the first. Way too many great places in Atlanta at this price point to ever consider returning.
Another amazing meal at Marcel! First time having Chip as a waiter, over eaten at amazing restaurants before. But none have given me the service that chip has given me! It was an experience that I’ll compare other experiences to.
We love this place.
This was my second time at Marcel celebrating my boyfriend's birthday and it was fantastic! Last year we sat near the bar which was fine, but this year we were seated in a swanky booth in the main dining room. Our server was very attentive and the food was awesome! We had a few cocktails at the bar prior to sitting down for dinner and the servers behind the bar were also awesome! Can't wait to go back next year!
This was our first experience at Marcel and it exceeded our high expectations. The food was excellent, however, we expected that. It's a great looking place and they have nailed the perfect level for music/noise to conversation ratio. But what really set it over the top was the service - from walking in the door to when we left, it was stellar. Not just friendly, but engaging, helpful and very attentive. Well done!!!
thoroughly enjoyed Marcel!!! Great menu choices awesome service!!! Will visit again!
Amazing. Food was awesome and service was impeccable!!
Marcel is always a great experience with great service. In addition to outstanding food, there’s an extensive wine and drink list to quench anyone’s thirst.
Amazing service by Chip
The kitchen was extremely backed up .. otherwise it was a great experience. The sweet shrimp scampi appetizer, bass bass, roasted asparagus and pommes aligot we’re spectacular! However the long wait for our entrees to come out prevents me from giving 5 stars.
Excellent... would definitely return. Very nice and a nice bar ahead of seating which was done well on top of that. Just go, it is solid.
We had a wonderful experience at Marcel - the food, service, and ambiance were all top notch. We went for our anniversary and they treated us like royalty :-)
We had a decent experience but not up to par of other higher end steakhouses.l We all had the dry aged ribeyes and they were pretty good but not as good as a few other Steak establishments in town such as Hal’s. The sides were also just ok. One of our guest returned their steak since it was cold to the touch (really ice cold) and he argued with him which was unacceptable. He ordered it rare in which it was perfect; however it was ice cold on the outside. No need to argue with a group spending over 2k for dinner. This is my 3rd visit there and I love the ambiance; however, the waitstaff in past have not been great. I’m still on the fence about this place. Also, for those who prefer California Cab’s the wine list is a bit lacking for options. (Great for Italian/French influenced)
Feels overpriced for average food. If you're celebrating a special occasion, go to Bones.
Outstanding Experience overall from service to food and location!!! For those in the 50+ crowd, it is a little dark which makes it hard to read the menu.
Went for date night with my husband. We had the beef wellington........ Amazing!!!!!!!!! The romantic ambiance, the decor, the staff, etc. was just phenomenal! Our waiter Chip was the absolute best!!! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and mostly enjoyed the food. We will definitely be back!!!
Amazing food.....amazing service..........can’t miss place.
Very agreeable staff. Quite attendant without hovering. Food innovative and well prepared. A little noisy, but otherwise quite nice. Mixed drinks a little small. Baked Alaska lovely production!
Great restaurant! Anthony was incredible as our waiter. Best meal in Atlanta.
AMAZING! Incredible meal and atmosphere. I am an Atlanta native and this IS the place to go. Steaks are amazing and service impeccable.
THE FOOD AND AMBIENCE WERE VERY GOOD, AS I WOULD HAVE EXPECTED FROM THE FORD FRY RESTAURANT GROUP. WHAT SET THIS EVENING APART WAS THE EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE BY A VERY WELL TRAINED AND KNOWLEDGEABLE STAFF. TO ME THIS IS WHAT TRULY DIFFERENTIATES A VERY GOOD RESTAURANT FROM AN OUTSTANDING RESTAURANT.
A GREAT NIGHT AND WE WILL RETURN.
Food and service were both exceptional. I LOVE this place!!
Main dish. The steak was not very good
Been to Marcel at least 10 times. Have never had a bad meal or dining experience. We always request the same server, Anthony, a real gem of a human being.
Everything about the experience was wonderful...from the hosts to the service, to the food. My friends all enjoyed themselves as well.
Fantastic experience. Service, wine/beverages, and food were top notch!
Every time I've dined here, the food and service are always outstanding. The steaks are always cooked exactly to order. The wine selections are limited but sufficient, and the lower-priced wines are great values.
Amazing! One of the best steaks I’ve ever had! Can’t wait to return
Amazing. The servers and staff had such joy for the place. It was infectious to see and hear people so excited about their jobs and the food and wine they had to share with us. Such a good experience.
The food was magnificent and the service on.the.spot!
Marcel served up 2 of the best steaks we’ve had anywhere, and I’m a total steak snob! The ambiance was unique with a cool 30s speakeasy vibe. The spinach gnudi as a side was both unique and awesome. For our app, we had the goat cheese in the tomato sauce....unbelievably good! We’ll be back and highly recommend it. Just be prepared to drop $200+ for a couple, but it’s worth it!
My wife and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary 2/27 at Marcel and, I have to say, it was one of the best beef meals we have had!
We arrived for dinner promptly for our 7:15 reservation. I had advised them in advance that it was our 50th anniversary and asked for a romantic spot if they had such. It was our first visit to Marcel. They immediately sat us at a table for 2 between a family with an infant child and 2 very loud businessmen. There was not enough space between the tables for the waiters to fit between them. We accepted that, ordered our cocktails, wine and dinner. The Salad Marcel was excellent and was served very promptly. After clearing our salad plates, the waiter informed us that they had a booth open and would like to move us there and told us they had initially planned to seat us there but was not available when we arrived. We gladly moved and expressed our appreciation for considering our special night.
Unfortunately, things went downhill from there. We waited after being seated at our new table for close to 40 minutes before our entre was served. Realizing they were very busy we waited patiently and did not complain. After all, it was a special night and we were just enjoying our night out together. Our steaks were outstanding along with the side dish. After finishing our entre, we waited about 10 minutes to have our empty plates cleared. The next time anyone checked on us was another 40 minutes later when they ask if we would like coffee. We told them "no thank you", just bring us our check. About 5 minutes later we were served an outstanding looking desert, which we refused, and again asked for our check. By this time my patience was wearing thin.
In short, the food was outstanding. The service was unacceptable for a $$ restaurant.
One of the best dining experiences I've had in Atlanta in a very long time! Chip was our waiter and he made the night so enjoyable! The food was delicious and the drinks even better!
I will go back. I didn’t like the tables being so close together and the hostess gave our seat to another couple. But overall the food and service were great
Great service and excellent food!
Great service, amazing food and wine. Beautiful place to celebrate.
Great experience. Kyle was amazing. Celebrating our anniversary and couldn’t of asked for anything more. She’ll never forget that night
