The service and meal were exceptional. From the moment we entered, to drinks at the lounge, to the service at the table, everything was perfect for a birthday celebration. We had the 3 course dinner, and the Dover Sole, Lamb and Sablefish were outstanding.
Our go to special occasion spot. Birthday celebration this time. Love sitting at the bar, formal yet informal dining is what we love!
Hard to fathom why Marcel's isn't among the Michelin-starred restaurants of DC. The tasting menu was exquisite, and the wine pairings were excellent and generously poured. Service was superb - professional but genuinely open and friendly. We will definitely visit again.
Dinner, as usual, was spectacular. Without question , the best restaurant in Washington.
Still the best fine dining in DC! And the menu changes often enough to keep it interesting. Try the wild boar. And leave room for the magnificent looking and tasting desserts.
Gracious service & great food presentation but extremely expensive.
My wife has an upcoming surgery with a long recovery, so this was a special meal with a friend.
We had a great time and throughly enjoyed the dining experience.
From start to finish it was a lovely experience. The place settings are very attractive as is the overall decor. The food and presentation is excellent. The service is extraordinarily attentive without ever being too intrusive.
Great food outstanding service highly recommended. Especially for a romantic night out with that special person in your life
Exceptional in all respects!
An absolutely perfect night - From the moment we walked in and were warmly greeted by Adnane, the maitre d’, till we left several hours later exceedingly happy and full of delicious food.
The menu is well balanced with a plethora of options that make choosing a difficult task. The portion sizes are just right...not too little to leave one wanting more and not too much to make one feel like a pig after finishing the wonderful food.
The service took the experience to a whole new level. Our sever, Jonathan, knew everything and shared - but also gave us space to enjoy the evening. Cindy, his co-server, was extremely attentive and a pleasure.
The restaurant is as fresh as if it opened a year ago...not roughly 20 years ago! Who knows how they do that?
We cannot wait till we return!
Spectacular food and service! This place is a DC gem! Out third time!
This is the third time we have dined at Marcel's and it only gets better. We have never been disappointed. Incredible food, fantastic, personalized service. We will be back soon.
We had a wonderful dining experience. Everything was prepared to perfection and tasted delicious. My wife had the Breast of Magret Duck and I had the Pan Seared Veal Chop. Additionally, the service led by Senior Captain Jonathan Crayne was outstanding. Thanks to all for making my birthday extra special!
A genuinely wonderful experience. From the moment you walk in, they treat you like a VIP, every thoughtful detail makes the entire dining experience wonderful. Definitely a “must try” if you come to DC. My wife and I are Vegetarian - and even that menu had amazing choices which ended up in a delightful four course meal.
Terrific, as always. Exquisite food, great service, though it would have been less awkward if there weren’t so many staff members standing and watching us eat.
This is a wonderful French restaurant in the business district go Washington DC. The food, service, décor and sound were all perfect. My only objection is the limitation of either a 3 course or a 7 course dinner. I felt that the 3 course was a little light and the seven course too much. I understand they used to have 3, 4 or 4 courses plus the seven. Bring it back. Other than that perfection!!
Outstanding service by Vinny. Thanks very kindly.
For this restaurant’s reputation, I was not impressed by the service nor the food. My wife’s food was excellent throughout but mine was not. Was it me that night? Possibly. Was it the restaurant? Possibly. The table clothes were not ironed and it was surprisingly loud. Overall I would say I had better service and food elsewhere. We had one of the last seatings for the evening and the staff was packing up and leaving as we were leaving which took from the ambience. The waiter seemed more concerned about meeting up with his date at the bar after closing than with ensuring we had a five star dining experience. You should try it but I will not need to go back.
Birthday and Valentines Day
We thought the service was impeccable and ambiance was lovely. The food was good but we now understand why Siren had a higher rating.
Value was good.
Judged on food alone, Marcel’s would be among the top restaurants in DC. From the opening amuse bouche, frothy salmon with trout roe, through moist Arctic char with perfectly crisped skin, to tender venison, our seven course tasting experience was superb. Yet you could have these dishes nearly as well prepared in many places. Nothing transcending. And the heralded pastry was beautifully presented but even less remarkable. Transcending, remarkable, memorable are what you have a right to expect when dropping over $600 for a meal (would have been $750 if we had chosen the wine pairing rather than a lower-tier bottle). It was a lovely experience, but not one we can recommend considering the competition.
Marcel's is always on point with service and the food is the best. We always love the service and the food. Best Prix theater and special occaisions.
We can always count on Marcel’s for a memorable evening. Food, service and ambiance are all superb!
Dining at Marcel’s is always an awesome experience. The food is delectable and the service, managed by Jonathon Crayne, is always impeccable.
Everything was great just didn’t care for my main course and felt bad sending it back
We had a wonderful birthday celebration. Food and service were perfect. Looking forward to next time.
Excellent! Very romantic. Service was exceptional.
We love Marcel’s. It seems like the food keeps getting better and better. Vinny gave us great service.
We went out for my wife and her brother’s birthday. The service was solid, food was overall very good to excellent and we had a good time. They took care of us.
My brother recommended Marcelo’s as a pre theatre dinner. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful meal and experience and will go back and would highly recommend to friends. An extra bonus was the ride to the Kennedy Center which remove the parking situation at the center.
Great meal, great service and will return
NICe and quiet good for conversation. I was brought the wrong entree, but in the interest of the time and company I ate what I was served. I had ordered a T-Bone and was brought the filet. No matter...it was delicious. Sorry no little side salad came with the prix fixe.
Marcel's provides the best fine dining experience in D.C.! The food, service, and ambiance are consistently outstanding.
Marcel’s is a PERFECT spot for date, special occasion and upscale business dinner. Food is OUTSTANDING and the ambiance is beautiful....classy....elegant.
Bordering on a last meal experience, it remains grand dining.
I think this is one of the best meals I've ever had. I tried the tasting menue. The chef was able to accommodate to my Pescatarian diet. Everything dish was exploding with flavor that kept me wanting more.
As always and yet again, Marcel's hits all the high marks. Food, service and atmosphere were as we expected. Marcel's has never disappointed us.
We had the pre-theater dinner before the ballet. It was excellent. Milos was our server and he was wonderful. He was very helpful with the menu and lovely to talk to! An exceptional experience all the way around. We will definitely go back soon!
This is a perfect high-end restaurant. The food was exquisite and the service was beyond excellent. I will go again and time I'm in DC.
My parents and daughter went to dinner here while they were visiting her at GWU. Crazy close to campus, and such an amazing restaurant! It was my dad's birthday also, and the staff worked with me to surprise him with that. It has been days, and my parents are still having about everything, wait staff, food, the sauces, oh my goodness, the sauces, the dessert, etc etc. Perfection!!
Visiting from out of town and treated myself to an amazing meal and experience at Marcel’s. Plan to come back the next time I am in town.
