Everything was wonderful. Definitely one of the top 5 meals I’ve had in my life, and the service was impeccable.

Very solid French food. Multiple options for tasting menu is always a nice touch. Perplexed on why Marcel's is not blessed by Michelin with a star. Definitely deserving of at least one star.

Everything was 5 star food, service, ambiance. Marcel’s should have a Michelin Star is well deserving of a Michelin Star

I relish the experience of dining here! As expected, the cuisine was exceptional. As well, I am always impressed by the quality of service -- attentive, but not smothering in its execution. Although expensive, I consider the value to be well worth the price. I heartily recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in experiencing what fine dining is about.

Came to Marcels for a date night with my wife recently. We love to come here anytime we can but especially prior to a Kennedy Center show. We appreciate the car service they provide to/from the Kennedy Center. The food is wonderful, our favorite in DC. The experience is made perfect by the excellent staff. Jonathan Crayne, the senior captain, is fun and ensures top service. We always request to sit in his section. It just isn’t the same when he isn’t there. Another mainstay there is Adnane Kebaier, the maitre’d. He is always there to greet you on arrival and make sure you are taken care of. The staff is awesome. The food is unforgettable. Best restaurant in DC!

We went with friends for Christmas Eve. The menu was different from the usual menu, but perfect for Christmas. Everything from start to finish was great. The service was very efficient, friendly, but not overly so -- very much like dining in Paris. Already thinking about going there next Christmas.

We married young - she was 19 and I was 20. Didn't have much money for many years but made up for that later. Lived all over the country and travelled the world together, along with our three children. This, our 48th anniversary, was the third time we celebrated at Marcel's and won't be the last. The menu, the wine list, the ambience, and the great service - Jacob is superb - make this restaurant one of our very favorites. Thank you for a most memorable evening.
