Exquisite cuisine and impeccable service (I think the best we experienced in a long time). Fois gras was melting, duck was of a perfect temperature, cheesecake was ideal. Loved every minute there
Marcel’s remains the gold standard for fine dining in DC. Nobody else even comes close!
As always, Marcel's offer amazing food and great service!
Delightful and delicious.
First time at this restaurant. We celebrated a birthday. Overall, we liked the food, it was really good and well prepared so no complaints with what we ate. That said, this is a very high end restaurant so we were disappointed with our server. He was a bit rude when we asked him questions on the menu, so much that we didn't want to ask more questions. We wanted to have a few items clarified more and the vibe we received was that he was annoyed with our questions and told us "It's really up to you. Whatever you want I will bring." which didn't answer our initial questions of asking more about the tasting menu, how it worked, could we switch one item in one column for another.....he just kept saying, "it's a tasting menu. You pick the items you want. It's up to you" We felt he should have taken more time to graciously explain and if we were asking something that Chef prefers not to do, we respect that. Have to also point out how wonderful, efficient and professional the support staff was, our waters were always full and plates were swiftly cleared.
My husband and I go to Marcel’s on special occasions. We love the ambiance, attentive service and delicious food. I must say, if you order the seven course dinner, be prepared to consume a lot of rich food. It was all delicious but would have appreciated a four course option.
For years now it is one of my favourite place to celebrate special occasions with family.
As usual everything was terrific!
Enjoyed the 5 course New Year's Eve dinner at Marcels. The meal itself was pricey and did not come with wine pairings. With wine, our meal for 2 was over $600, a huge splurge for us. That said, the service was excellent. Friendly without being overbearing. The food was great and dinner was paced nicely. An amuse bouche and 5 courses stretched over 2 hours. We especially enjoyed the lobster in butter, the arctic char and the filet. If this type of meal is in your budget, I do recommend.
Wow! Just WOW!!! one of the top 20 meals of my life - every dish was a masterpiece! WIll be back!
New Year's Eve is always a special treat for my wife and I. We have eaten at Marcel's before attending a concert at the Kennedy Center for the past several New Year's. The food is spectacular and the service is always top notch. Wouldn't dream of going elsewhere.
Absolutely perfect. We’ve dined here for dinner and brunch nearly a dozen times since 2006, but this was our first visit on NYE. The staff made it festive, but kept it classy. This will be our NYE tradition moving forward.
Every course was delicious and beautifully displayed. Our waiter was friendly, courteous and efficient. The restaurant was decorated tastefully but for the occasion. The pianist in the bar played beautifully. All of the staff at Marcel’s is friendly and top notch.
Classy establishment with personable, attentive service that never feels pretentious or stuffy. Exceptionally formal and fancy, this restaurant is pricy and it shows in the outstanding food and service. We had the tasting menu with the sommelier's choice wine pairing, and it was a fun gastronomic experience. Enjoyed the sea urchin and lobster starter, and the lamb as the main protein. Would go again for a very special occasion.
My wife and I had pretheater dinner her previously and came back because it is so good. From the moment you walk in to when you finish your delicious meal, you will feel welcome and enjoy the experience. The wait staff is very friendly and professional, especially Jonathan.
The food, service, etc. was amazing. My only issue was the temperature of the rooms, which was a bit too low for my comfort. The staff did increase the heat eventually.
The food and service are always excellent every time I go.
Great to see some familiar faces. It was a great experience.
Decent French restaurant. Good food, good service. Adequate wine pairing. Would be 5 stars if stood up to comparison to some other New York and even Philadelphia establishments. Alas, just good enough. Truthfully, spending nearly a grand on dinner for three (with tips) should be a WOW experience. Ours was good, but not WOW.
Our first visit to Marcel's by Robert Wiedmaier, and it made our anniversary truly special. The food was extraordinary, the service outstanding, and the ambiance wonderful. Our most memorable dining experience of 2018!
Cold evening and the restaurant temperature was cold. Several customers commented on it. Waiter was pushy and seemed to be focused more on up charging us. Food was mediocre, coupled with the high prices, made for a disappointing experience. We will not return. I would not be surprised if this restaurant closes its doors soon.
Marcel's is always great -- Christmas Eve was no exception. From the genuine friendly welcome to the final goodbye, all was excellent. Just wish we could do it more often.
It was a great dining experience. My duck was perfect. Their wait staff was just perfect too.
Disappointing. Food was adequate, $40 for a champagne cocktail is outrageous. Service was great, as it always is - although hostess was quite clearly clueless.
Have loved Marcel’s for years, but a dismal Christmas Eve meal.
Excellent service, food, ambience, and value. Highly recommended.
We had a most memorable Christmas Eve dinner -- menu prix fixe -- with outstandingly attentive service and exceptionally good fare. The scallop appetizer was particularly notable.
A wonderful dinner, ambiance and Jonathan and the staff were absolutely fantastic!
The food was amazing. Very pricey, but amazing. I highly recommend the scallops, the duck, and the cheese cake if you plan on doing the 3 course meals. It was absolutely divine. Will be returning.
Probably the best meal my wife and I have had all year
Everything was wonderful! It was our wedding anniversary and we were made to feel very special. The service was impeccable. The ambience romantic and relaxed.
A splendid holiday evening! Old friends reuniting in an elegant atmosphere, refined yet cozy. Lovely drinks, delicious menu filled with appetizing alternatives. Careful, cordial, unrushed service. Utterly delightful.
Beautiful restaurant. Low lighting, lovely ambiance. BUT: the food was very mediocre, the waiter was way too chatty, the desserts were abominable.
We left our daughter at home with a sitter for first time and only once I looked at the cameras to make sure everything was going okay with our baby. This place is on our top five list. The foie gra is divine. The chef brought us a walnut foie gra soup, it was so good I asked for more and they gave me more. Service was impeccable. This is a great place I have no complaints. We will definitely be back.
The dining experience delectable, the ambiance divine, but the captivating ingredient - MILOS. We were treated to what can only be described as the most intricate and well choreographed ballet of food service. Each course elegantly presented by Milos and his colleagues, allowing for the aroma of each ingredient to resonate on our palate. Marcel's should be a priority of your dining reservations and the experience will not dishearten your evening feast.
Excellent food and service. Also, my very well behaved daughter came along with us-she is 10 years old and loves French food. They were very kind to her and treated her with the elegance. I was very pleased.
This is a 5-star restaurant with a comparable price tag, but every bite you take will make your taste buds tingle with pleasure.
We had the most amazing service and food. We also were taken to the Kennedy Center for our show. What a wonderful perk! Thank you
What can I say? Marcel's is perfection!! We enjoyed another birthday dinner with them--food was outstanding, ambiance lovely, staff excellent. GREAT restaurant!! Thank you!
Got us in and done in time for theater. Complimentary car to Kennedy Center. Wait staff are excellent in every regard. Food is terrific. Wine selection is great
