Food and service was around what I expected going in, however the price point was disappointing. Have had better testing menus for less. Overall a good experience though.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Marcel's. What a treat! We both had the 3 course dinner. It was well worth the money -- every course was superb! The waiter gave us very good advice regarding our course selections. Service was attentive but not intrusive. We will return for our next special occasion!
Amazing service, food and atmosphere. We celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary on Saturday, and the staff ensured our experience was very special. We chose the pre fixe theater menu prior to seeing La Traviata at the Kennedy Center. It was such a treat to have a 110% top notch restaurant experience in DC.
Superb in every way.
Marcel’s never misses a step. The food, ambiance, and service is always impeccable. Can’t wait for our next dinner in November!
Fabulous evening...excellent service and wonderful food!
Kennedy Center concert pre-dinner
First class all the way
Fantastic pre-theater meal. Well paced. Great meal. Love Adnane and team! See you soon!
Pretty much as close as you can get to a totally enjoyable dining experience. Service attentive but respectful, timed perfectly. Food was delicious and presentations could not be better. Jonathan was friendly, humorous and extremely well informed as to every item we asked about. We discovered we had mutual friends who had brought us there on a special occasion.
We have enjoyed every meal we have had at Marcel's over the years. The food is classic with a modern twist. Staff is knowledgeable and attentive. Our waiter has been at Marcel's for 19 years and proud of it. We will continue to go back. The pre theater special is a great value.
I don't like to dine with wait staff hovering over me constantly. It was very annoying. Also, I want to eat at my own pace. Food was good but experience was negative.
This was our anniversary and the night was special. The food was excellent and the waiter was great. He talked us through every entree . We got the 7 course meal and enjoyed every bite.
They even wrote happy anniversary on the desert
For the money we paid ($370 for three course meal for two including tip and one glass of wine) I expected the ambiance and food to be something very special but neither were. While the service and presentation of the food was very good, the restaurant appears in need of a makeover and the food while beautiful to look at, was quite boring to eat. I chose this restaurant because of good reviews and its car service to the Kennedy Center but I would not do so again. I was even disappointed with the car service, the driver yelled at me for not being in the correct pick up location after the show (even after giving him a very generous tip after the drop off).
As usual, Marcel's produces excellent and innovative cuisine with impeccable service. The ambiance is elegant and the decibel level, even when the room is full, never reaches the loudness of lesser restaurants.
We have dined here many times. This was our first time dining here before going to the Kennedy Center. Marcels has a super convenient shuttle service which made for a very relaxing evening. We made our selections off the regular versus pre-theater menu simply due to preferences. For starters, I had the amazing boudin blanc while my wife had an especially tasty lobster/scallop ravioli. We each had duck for our entree and it was perfectly prepared. I am not a dessert person but their “cheesecake balls” with pineapple sorbet was out of this world. The cheese course was a cashel blue with all types of goodies to go with it. Service impeccable as usual. Ps. I have ordered their chicken on several occasions and it is wonderful— only place I ever order chicken!!
We came to Marcel’s after I had proposed to my fiancé. I told them ahead of time through open table that I was proposing the night we were dining there and we were given the most exquisite experience. Between the food (order the foie gras) and our server, Vinny, it was one of the best nights we have ever had. Marcel’s earned themselves repeat customers. They went above and beyond all our expectations in making it a special night.
Excellent food, ambiance, presentation. Quiet and elegant. Outstanding service. Very pricey (no surprise); worth it only for a very special occasion. Does a superior job in fulfilling the goals it has set for itself.
The food was outstanding. The service is unparalleled to other places of equal stature.
The wine pairings were well thought through.
The lobster ravioli and rabbit ravioli were mouth watering and very unique.
The little extraordinary things that the wait staff do for you is a nice touch. We did the chief's tasting menu with the chef's wine paring and without a doubt gives evey upscale restaurant in and a around DC a run. In regards to the dress code, if you have a question just call and ask. You will find they are more flexible than you would think. I look forward to our next dinner there.
It was indeed a great wedding anniversary celabration. Everything was excellent
Awesome food and service. Always something new to enjoy.
We enjoyed our dining experience very much. Our Captain Christopher provided outstanding and friendly service. The meal lived up to our expectation completely.
Very nice place, food was good, staff was good, food was a little pricey, however was delicious!
We had been travelling in the USA for 3 weeks - Boston, West Point, New York, Baltimore and Washington - and this was by far the best meal and setting we experienced. The service was excellent and the food and wine superb - we would thoroughly recommend this to anyone seeking a fine dining experience.
In a time where service is dead, Marcel’s comes through like a knight in shining armor. The food is amazing. Perfectly seasoned with each bite. The drinks are just as amazing. And to top it off, an amazing waitstaff—most of all, our fantastic man, Vinny. Thank you for giving two overly tired parents an amazing date night, with top notch food, some good laughs, and great drinks. Yes, it’s worth every penny. We can’t wait to go back!
Had a wonderful time and Vinny’s service was phenomenal. He was amazing helpful and not at all frustrated with all our questions.
This is the finest food and service in Washington. Marcels is Always a consistent, high quality and wonderful dining experience.
Service was outstanding from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. Decided to celebrate my wife's birthday here for pre-theater menu before Hamilton. Food was delicious, and they were extra nice to my wife for her birthday. Complimentary car service to Kennedy Center was very convenient as well.
Food was amazing and flavorful. Staffs are great and lovely.
Outstanding food and service. Only complaint is the bread. The one served was very good. However, it is not amenable to sopping up the wonderful French sauces. Should add another simple crusty bread with soft interior.
Wonderful place for a special occasion. The food and ambiance is excellent. I look forward to our next visit.
Dining as it should always always be. Only shortcoming was the limited desert selection.
This was an amazing experience, an indulgence like no other. The birthday girl said it was the best food she had ever tasted and I concurred.
Marcel's is the best fine dining intimate restaurant in Washington. We have been enjoying both regular dinner occasions and special events for 20 years. Somehow the quality has been maintained at a very high level.
I will never go to Georgetown without visiting Marcel's.
Marcel's is a fine restaurant to celebrate special occasions.
anniversary meal with my wife. We took the degustation menu with wine pairing- amount of food vs. wine was not balanced - too much wine for too little food. I would recommend Marcel to really review the formula and come up with something more balanced. Food was Ok; wine was good.
Service was Ok but a little impersonal.
Total cost was high - 800-900 for two- I don't think it is deserved; value for the cost was not there, I would not go there again.
Amazing as always! Can’t thank the chef and staff enough.
Very good experience!! Wonderful service and delicious food. Expensive but great!
Superb food and ambience! Will try pre theatre next time. yolanda
