Outstanding in every way, from the wine and food to the service.
Girls night... we had the 4 course with a little treats from the chef. Everything was amazing
Mark was great!
Extraordinary service and wonderful food. Valentine’s Day portions could have been larger but were certainly adequate.
Valentines was the first time my wife and I have been out in quite some time. This experience will be memorable for a long time.
Excellent setting for a date or a celebration! Superb service and delicious dishes! Great bar area too!
Great service and delicious food
Our Christmas Eve reservation was cancelled when the mayor closed all indoor dining, so we were excited to have an early Valentine’s dinner at Marcel’s. Everything was delicious: cod, lamb duck, scallops.
As always excellent service & divine cuisine.
Fantastic food, service and experience at Marcel’s. All areas exceeded expectations. Vinny and staff were outstanding and made us feel at home. The chef delivered perfect courses. We were so impressed that we look forward to our next visit. A sincere thank you to this wonderful group!
My husband and I have been wanting to dine at Marcel’s for a while now and we decided to celebrate our anniversary there. It was amazing!!! We cannot extol the virtues of Marcel’s enough. The service, the food, the wine and ambiance was simply second to none. Incomparable! Thank you to the staff for a memorable evening.
It was good to be back at Marcel’s. Chef was in the kitchen and greeted us warmly upon arrival and departure. Neither the food nor service has suffered during the shutdown. Both were up to their usual high standards. Tables were well spaced and all safety precautions were being followed. 4 of us had a very enjoyable evening.
It was amazing.
Overall experience there was great. Wish the servers, they’d pay more attention to each table. It was confusing who our waiter/server was.
Phenomenal menu, food, service, atmosphere and hospitality!!! Our go to for over 10 years!
Marcel’s was the perfect place for our special date night. They had very thoughtfully prepared a customized menu for us that highlighted our anniversary. The service and food were absolutely impeccable. COVID precautions were in place, and we felt very safe (we were one of three tables in the whole dining room). I can’t say enough good things about Marcel’s. Really hoping this restaurant makes it through the tough times of the pandemic.
Absolutely terrific. Vinny, our waiter was attentive but not too aggressive. We had the 4-course tasting menu. Each course's evolution was explained to us with all of its ingredients. We weren't rushed in any way and had a most pleasurable two-hour repast. Everyone (maitre d, buser, and waiter) was very courteous and careful to distance. A great restaurant for a birthday (mine) and they gave me a souvenir menu, signed and tied with a Marcel's ribbon. COuld not have been treated any better, felt like we were regulars.
Spectacular food, service, and ambiance. Best restaurant in DC!!
Mark from Chicago is the best waiter ever !
I travel often. This is from top to bottom one of the best experiences I have ever jad
As a native Washingtonian, I believe Marcel’s is the finest dining in the district. I’ve been a customer since Robert opened the doors in 1999 and I can’t recommend it highly enough. The staff is impeccable yet incredibly friendly. The food is exquisite. The ambiance is at once tranquil and exciting. Perfection all around!
Wonderful birthday dinner! 4 tasting sized portions. Perfect service. , Quiet romantic setting. Few diners which was perfect for us in these times. Pricey but well worth it! Can’t wait to return.
Absolutely fantastic dining experience. Food is fantastic but the service is better.
Vinnie is one of the best in the Business! A true classic!
This was a birthday dinner for my wife and all of the staff that we encountered took the extra effort to ensure that she had a wonderful time! She enjoyed her Lobster, Scallops and Bass very much, but not half as much as I loved the squab (Divine), Duck (Lovely) & the Boudin (very different presentation, but absolutely Delicious)! I sooooo wish we did the 5-course offering vs the 4-course..... but I know for the next visit!!!!!
Very safe experience in a lovely large room with widely dispersed tables and few fellow diners. Our only personal interaction was with the host, who served our meal, and the silent but attentive assistant who refilled our water glasses and bread dishes. As the "Post" says, a world-class experience with a wide-ranging menu of all small plates--but how else do you get lobster, duck, and venison all during the same dinner? Less playful than Inn at Little Washington, and much smaller portions than Auberge Chez Francois, but much closer to home. Very expensive, but some reasonably choices on the wine list.
Food was excellent cannot praise enough, the service was top notch Vinny was our waiter and made our experience that much better. He made the perfect recommendations and was attentive to our wants/needs that we didn't know we needed. Very elegant and worth every penny spent.
Excellent meal and wonderful service. Interior was socially distant and I felt quite safe. It's pricey, but a great destination to celebrate.
Adnane and staff were amazing. Enjoyed their company and had a great overall experience.
10th anniversary was made special by Vinny! Amazing service all around.
We had a wonderful dinner, with beautifully prepared and delicious courses and attentive service. We look forward to our next visit.
Enjoyed celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary.
The food was exceptional. The service was wonderful.
As always, impeccable service and stunning food that hits every mark. Not a blip in service or taste, and every precaution taken. We will be back.
The team at Marcel's was terrific, greeting our party of four at the door, being able, safely, to sit at the bar for cocktails, something we hadn't done since February, and then a most memorable dinner of four courses. We all commented it was feeling like what normal used to be, if only for an evening. And even when we departed, waiting outside for our Uber, the staff made sure we were okay. We did not feel at all unsafe being inside, and the experience of a five star dinner put smiles back on our faces. Thank you!
Worth every penny. Dinning is a experience is a culinary delight and not just a meal.
I visited Marcel’s with my teenage daughters to celebrate my birthday, and it was a great experience. Absolutely the best meal in D.C.
Marcel’s has wonderful wines, a welcoming ambiance, and extremely knowledgeable staff, who made great recommendations. I certainly recommend Marcel’s.
As always, Marcel’s does not miss the mark. The food and service is flawless. There’s a reason Marcel’s is considered among the best restaurants in the city. Milos and Adnane went out of their way to foster a world-class dining experience. Can’t recommend highly enough and can’t wait to go back.
Excellent food and customer service...............
Food was beyond amazing and service (Mark, especially) was the highlight of the night!
We have dined at Marcel's a number of times over the years, and we appreciate the efforts they clearly have undertaken to maintain their commitment to service and ambience despite the difficulties posed by the pandemic.
