We had a great meal and a wonderful server. Unfortunately, the AC was having issues so it was very very hot. We rushed through dinner and skipped dessert because we were sweating.
Felt very rushed, food was disappointing, eggplant burnt. But skit great experiences, this wasn’t. Hopefully just an off night
Everything great as always! Delicious pasta!
Service was attentive without being intrusive. Food was very good except chicken in Chicken Marsala was dry. Restaurant was loud, but that was OK, it was a Friday night right after most of the quarantine restrictions were lifted, and everyone was out to party.
We met with our friends for happy hour and was a bit disappointed in the food and service. The spinach dip was different than what we remembered and the calamari/zucchini appetizer could have been cooked a little longer. We felt you were understaffed for the bar area.
It was very hot in the restaurant. My entire group was sweating through our meal. We were seated next to a large party of about 12 and they had kids running around who were constantly bumping my chair and the entire group was constantly getting up and walking around our table instead of through the actual walkway ways. It was not a good experience.
Went there for Happy Hour. The drinks were great, and so was the service. The food was very good, although I would recommend that they get a different gluten-free pizza crust (mine was thick and doughy). I will try something else next time. The Happy Hour here is definitely a good value for the $.
Our waiter was excellent. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome and make sure everything was perfect. I really appreciated him! He was a great waiter!!
Food was great! Service was great! It was a a all around great restaurant, definitely coming back again!
We really enjoyed our meals. Service was very good as well. We will be back.
Upon checking in the hostess confirmed our reservation and asked if we wanted to sit in the bar area or dining room. The bar area connects to the patio and the patio door was wide open. There was a staff member cleaning a table off as we walked in so we were eager to sit outside on a nice night. We asked her if the patio was an option and at that moment she rolled her eyes (didn’t try to hide it) and said nothing. My husband, who is very patient and relaxed all the time) chuckled and we both looked at each other. She then said “ummmm sure” with an annoyed look and tone. My husband and I looked again at each other confused and I asked if that was going to be a problem and if so we can sit anywhere. She then paused and stated it isn’t a problem but they don’t have a server and will have to find one to go to that area. I immediately told her ok then no problem we can sit anywhere. She proceeds to look at me and tells me to pick where I want to sit. LOL...umm we did and it was an issue. We finally just excused ourself and told her we will sit at the bar. The bartenders were great and very personable, food was delicious but we are confused on the first impression of the hosts. I would hope Marcella’s knows the hosts is the first impression and maybe not everyone is cut out for customer service🤷🏻♀️
server could have been more attentive
Both my girlfriend and I had the Gnocchi con Bolognese - gnocchi with a lam meet sauce. We both loved it. Our server was super friendly and took great care of us.
Marcella's is a great place for any occasion. The food, service and ambiance is always impeccable.
Nothing special. Chicken parm was dry and overcooked and the sauce was burnt. Great service and nice place but the food is average at best.
Excellent service and delicious food
The three of us went to Marcella's last night for my birthday dinner. It was the first night that restaurant capacities were back to normal from before the pandemic. The place was packed! We went early, and had a very nice booth; service was very good, and the food was terrific. And we discovered that Wednesdays all bottles of wine are half priced, so of course we got a bottle. Chemistry Pinot Noir - excellent.
And since it was my birthday, I was able to select a free dessert; I got the cheesecake with strawberries, which our table shared.
Marcella's never disappoints. Hats off to Cameron Mitchell.
We had a great time and the food was great as always. The service was excellent as well and the chef even came out to wish me and my wife a happy anniversary. Will be back!!
Wonderful evening on the patio reconnecting with a friend. Food was delicious, service was helpful and attentive and the patio was beautiful (the weather helped). A perfect experience!
Our College Graduation Celebration was great! Our waiter was very attentive and the food was amszing!
Food and service were great. My only complaint was that is was very warm in the restaurant.
Food was excellent, service was unfortunately not.
Great service ... unique Italian food that was very tasty
Perfect, evening to be in the patio!! We loved it, pizza was great, waiter was wonderful.
I can’t think of a single negative thing. Absolutely amazing
Bryan who attended to us was truly awesome
Very polite considerate and kind
It was wonderful to get back to my favorite restaurant - it had been over a year since we last dined here!! The food was excellent and the waitstaff was wonderful.
Beautiful restaurant and great service, we weren’t too impressed with our food but would definitely give it another chance if we’re in town again.
Great. Great waiter.
food and service were great. It's now time to ditch the masks !
Blake was outstanding his service was perfect! The food was to die for and my son really enjoyed his food too!!! Great Happy hour!!!!!!!
Food was delicious! Very noisy hard to converse. Service was not good at all. We asked for Parmesan cheese since it wasn’t offered with 4 Italian dinners. Took almost 15 minutes and asking twice to get it. Water refills were sparse.
Our server was a little flustered and the food was not timed to come out with spacing from the kitchen.
Marcella’s has really gone down hill in terms of the service and quality of the food. Not certain I’ll be back.
Everything was wonderful!! Would highly recommend!
Delicious food, great service, clean restaurant, good price
Delicious Italian food, creative cocktails, and friendly and professional service. Marcella's has been one of my favorites for years.
