The food was delicious!!! So happy they are open and our Server was outstanding! When we enter red they had a table of pick up orders too. All safety protocols are followed.
Everyone we came into contact with was very nice and professional! Our waiter was so nice and was always checking to see if we needed anything! The food was delicious!
Had to ask for a wine glass. They brought out what seemed like a whiskey glass. Wine does not taste good out of these. Wrong soup was brought out. Ordered wedding soup received tomato soup. Service was ok but overall experience disappointing.
Not up to the Martinis in the short north, another CameronMitchell restaurant
Better than a lot of the local Italian restaurants in town. For sure will be going back.
Went there since we have never tried it before for our anniversary dinner. We had a great time the cocktails are excellent, the waiter did an outstanding job. The food was really good my wife loves Italian and she loved it all. We took our desert home since we just could not eat another bite and that was excellent as well. We will comeback, thanks for a great dinner!
My wife & I always enjoy the special way that Marcella does their salmon dish. The patio is spaced out that the customer feels. We come early and enjoy the peaceful setting. The wine selections enhanced the delicious meal. Wait staff is attentive. We do not feel comfortable at the present time to do indoor dining. We look for restaurants that have inviting patios. Marcella offers that element.
As usual, it was excellent! The food, wine, and service never disappoint.
I highly recommend saving room for dessert! The cherry crustada was delicious!
Jim was a fantastic server!!
Food and service were great!
Really disappointed in the quality of food, presentation, and taste. The chopped salad looked like it came out of a bag from the grocery store. There was not any thought given to it and it certain was not chopped. The pasta with meatball was not good. The meatball was barley cooked and the pasta was half cooked. I expect better from a Cameron Mitchell restaurant. A lot of people were walking around with out masks which made us uncomfortable even though it a policy to wear them while not sitting at a table. Service was slow and our table was an afterthought.
I personally went here for the gluten free food, been missing Italian foods- and it was amazing, JUST like before i was GF to be honest. So worth the wait!
We love/have loved Marcell's (Poliaris) since we stumbled on the restaurant 3 years ago. We love most excellent Negroni's in the bar, their delicious Calamari (brought to the table smoking hot). The Chicken Piccata is knock your socks off good...
We split the Lamb Ragu Gnocci and it was delicious, the lamb was so tender it melted in your mouth and the sauce was lovely.
We love Marcella's...
Keep doing what you are doing...
Daddy daughter date with my 12 year old. First time here and everything was perfect.
We received excellent service at Marcella's and the food was delicious! I was also extremely impressed with how they accommodated food allergies and the chef ensured that none of the ingredients were in the meal and brought it out himself. We enjoyed our experience and will definitely be returning.
Nice for early happy hour dinner.
Get there early but best to make bar reservations.
As always the food was great and the service was first class!
We had fabulous service, food and drinks in the bar. Everyone from host to server and in between was fabulous. Chef even came out to greet us. It was a really lovely evening and well-worth the drive from Short North!!
As always, service, food, price was good. Thank you.
Food was great, service great, adherence to COVID guidelines much appreciated
Great evening celebrating our several years together. Chicken Marsala was perfect, calamari was like being back in Europe finished the night with the Tiramisu. Our daughter fell in love with the calamari. Like all of Cam's resturants never disappointed.
It was a very welcoming experience. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome. Once we were seated, we were immediately serviced by Rusty. Drinks came immediately and we were given as much time as need to pick out our orders. Once the food came it was an explosion of flavors and dessert was the icing on the cake (pun intended). From start to finish it was amazing!! Will definitely plan to go back soon.
My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary. The staff was really nice. Our waiter was great and energetic. He made sure to come check up on us. Also, the food was great.
The service was somewhat mediocre. The atmosphere was more of eating in a cafeteria. Compared to other high end restaurants I would.have expected more from this Cameron Mitchell establishment.
Food was excellent and the price was reasonable. Will definitely be back!
Was good as always. I would come here again. I always get the Ravioli Mezaluna. Yum.
Marcella’s removed the chicken giardiniera entree. It was very popular and unique. It’s upsetting to have a classic menu updated when it involves removing such an incredible dinner option.
I was expecting a better meal. The lasagna was fair. My wife’s chicken scalloping was also fair. Service was good, food was only fair. I would not recommend it.
Absolutely perfect! They were accommodating to our large party and made us feel attended to. The salmon was delicious as well as the other meals ordered. Definitely try the strawberry martini with foam. Delicious!
Marcella’s provides an outdoor setting that is safe and comfortable. They cannot control
the noise from traffic on Polaris Parkway. The service and food was excellent. It is an inviting transition during the virus for some of us not ready for dine in service.
Birthday great meatballs
Great waiter, food was excellent. We like Marcella’s because of their many Gluten free options.
We were placed in a side room that really took away from our first experience in the restaurant. The waitress also gave us a recommendation that the drink I choose was very sweet and therefore I switched up to the Limoncello and was very disappointed. No worries - I should have gone with my gut; but I then ordered a martini and it didn't arrive until after dinner was complete. We also were without water frequently. Hopefully it was just an off night because the food was delicious.
Food was subpar. Service was poor. Not sure if we will ever come back.
Had a good time with my family tonight and a nice dinner
Dinner was great! You can tell that they really do care about the health of their staff and customers!
Food was good but not worth the price. Even just including bread for the table would make it more worth it. I likely wont be returning.
Our server Chase was amazing!!! Made the experience!
The food was good, but it was only warm, should have been hotter. I had to ask for bread twice. I'm sure this was a one off situation. I'm glad that I have been here many times before, but if it was my first time experience I wouldn't have been especially impressed. It was ok.
The food was great and the service was outstanding.
