Our server, Jonathan, was as amazing as ever. The dining experience was wonderful. We’re not sure we’re big fans of the new menu style but we really enjoyed the chefs tasting menu

Wow! Marcel's for Valentine's Day! What a treat in every way. We enjoyed the several-course menu that was the Valentine special-- I had the haddock and my husband enjoyed the NY strip steak. We both got the cherry bombe dessert, which was as big as an apple (but looked like a cherry, complete with a chocolate stem). There seemed to be layers and layers of goodies in that cherry bombe!

Best food I’ve had in my entire life. I’ve traveled all over the world and eaten at top rated restaurants, however Marcel’s was a magical experience of gastronomy.

Marcel's does great top-of-the-line French cuisine. We would recommend it highly for dates, special occasions, anniversaries, and the like.

Superior service and excellent food. I loved the salmon with garlic spinach and fennel puree and the passionfruit cheesecake. I was also impressed by the offering of three kinds of butter. The mustard seed one was my favorite. I have been to many restaurants in the DC area, and across the country, and was very impressed by Marcel's.

My wife had the filet mignon and I the schnitzel. Food was simply excellent. Service was amazing. Johnathan was incredible. Ambience was perfect for a romantic brunch or dinner. Really worth experiencing and well worth the price, and just a short walk to the Kennedy Center. You won’t be disappointed if you are looking for a place to have a great meal before or after a show.

We go to Marcels' a half dozen or so times a year and have enjoyed it very much. This last visit was the Saturday before Thanksgiving, so it was probably a little busier than normal. Had to wait 15 minutes or so for our table, but we enjoyed the live piano in the bar. The staff and food were both excellent, as usual. Remains a favorite place.
