The hamachi had the best mushroom “sauce” blending all the flavors of the dish together in one spoonful was the best ever!
We went on Mothers Day and there was a much more limited menu than on their website. So we paid a lot of money for average food which came out very slowly. Theservice was very, very good,
Great brunch! No, not an all-you-can eat type. The menu choices, though few, were exceptional. The high level of quality and preparation made this a brunch that one can sit over and enjoy. It's unfortunate that there aren't enough diners to appreciate this level of quality to justify it being open every Sunday.
Wonderful Mother’s Day brunch all was outstanding!
A perfect evening in every way
We started with Cavier at the bar and then went to our table for our dinner reservation
Every step of the way the service and the food was incredible
We will continue to love this dining experience for years to come
We have dined in many places in our travels. This was a flawless experience, front to back.
Marcel's - the ambiance, people, and food make me happy.
The food and service were amazing! We couldn't decide what courses we wanted to have so Vinny picked our courses and did a great job. Each course was brought to the table with a description of the plate and the best way to indulge.
The food was excellent! Great ambiance, the pianist was wonderful. Mark, my waiter, was top notch! Very personable and attentive. The entire crew was 10/10. The mussels in tomato fondue were the best I’d ever had, hands down. The boudin blanc was so light and airy, such a lovely texture. My only complaints are the steak could have used a bit more seasoning and the blueberry garnish on the fois gras were salty. I would absolutely dine here again and have already recommended it to friends.
Always exceptional.Polished service and from beginning to end the staff make you feel special. A MUST for any foodie. DC's Best Kept Secret; go on Fri or Sat and request a lounge table with chic decor and an Amazing pianist!! Always top notch.
Lovely, elegant dining particularly suited for a special occasion. Wonderful food paired with robust wine options. I highly recommend Marcel's!
Great food experience. Each dish was unique and tasty. Will be going back again
A lot to like when you are in the mood to splurge. Food and service are top-notch. However, gave only one star for service because when the bill came, the bottle of wine I ordered was listed at $185 instead of the correct price of $85. Check those bills folks!
Great tasting menu with adequate seat spacing during this pandemic, live piano player.
Marcel's has survived the pandemic with flying colors. The tables were always sufficiently far apart to permit social distancing, and the food and the service remain exceptional. Still the best restaurant in DC!
The food was delicious, the service impeccable and we all throughly enjoyed ourselves.
I highly recommend Marcel's.
Amazing tasting menu with wines paired by our talented waiter. It was a lovely anniversary dinner...very special!
Mark was a wonderful waiter- helped make the meal outstanding
Vinny was amazing!
Marcel's continues to deliver! Always a great dining experience. Also appreciate the steps taken during this trying time to keep customers socially distant and for the staff to continue wearing masks.
An absolutely terrific dinner! My first experience in 15 months eating inside a restaurant and it was superb in every way!
Food was fantastic, service was superb. Highly recommend eating here if you are visiting DC.
We had a fantastic time. If you are going to try new food, do it at the best possible place you can. Marcel's did not disappoint. Everything was well described, prepared and delicious. Our waiter was entertaining, very helpful, and attentive. When he said meat marshmallow, we doubted but he was dead on and it was amazing. There's no question this was an expensive night but very well spent and a great time had by all.
Joint birthday celebration
We were served by a lovely, friendly waiter. Drinks and service was prompt. Many courses were quite good but a few were just average and did not seem freshly prepared. Seemed to be a refined atmosphere but a nearby noisy table was fairly distracting. Not the restaurant’s fault! Nice place but not terribly special.
This was our first trip to an upscale restaurant since the pandemic started and our experience turned out to be as excellent as we expected. While we are not big fans of tasting menus, the four course offering was quite good although we will happy when the full menu is offered again. The staff went out of the way to make us feel welcome and comfortable even though we had not been there for two or more years. A wonderful evening...
We had a great experience. Food was amazing!! Pricey but worth it. We will be back!!
Date night or client dinners, good is excellent, great single malt options
We had an amazing dinner at Marcel’s. The service was impeccable- the servers made us feel welcome and comfortable. The atmosphere is formal but not snooty. The food was amazing. It was a very special dinner experience. I would recommend it highly.
Great customer service and setting. We selected the 4 course tasting and it was amazing food. We really enjoyed it.
Safety protocols in place ...we had the tasting menu 85.00. All the choices were available to us which was different. My wife likes Marcel’s. Maybe I should have let her write this review.
We took our Brooklyn daughter to Marcel’s to celebrate the end of family distancing. We dressed up a bit! We had dined here twice previously but she had not. We went full of anticipation for a great evening. Every exceeded our expectations. We chose 5 course dinners. All agreed that every course was so delicious. I had scallops, Red Sea bass, lamb, chocolate dessert (and one more...) the Sommelier chose an excellent wine for us. Our waiter Milos was elegant, attentive, kind, and unobtrusive. We talked a lot about the dinner afterwards, expressing our appreciation for the professionalism of all that was done. What a superb group performance. Such expertise.
A phenomenal dining experience and my favorite restaurant in DC. Service was amazing from entrance to exit. Knowledge staff and sommelier; a real treat.
Excellent service! Vinnie is the best! Knows food and wine and is fun!
Fantastic service. Champagne 🍾. Bartender and bar setup are perfect
Great staff, great food.. More expensive than I thought, but that’s probably my own fault for not looking further in to it at booking.. Would highly recommend for a nice occasion!
We had an amazing dinner celebrating two birthdays. The room where we were seated was not very full so we fell comfortably socially-distanced. The service was outstanding and very courteous. The selections from the tasting menu were outstanding for all of us. The only thing we did not love was the dessert. The chocolate dessert option needs to have a lot more chocolate so chocolate lovers will feel satisfied (although it was delicious from the point of view of the non-chocolate lovers who tried it) and the other dessert was just ok. It was a beautiful evening and the wine was exquisite.
Mark was fantastic! He took care of everything needed and was open and welcoming.
We loved our dinner although there was a very long wait for a course that arrived lukewarm.
So wonderful to go back to Marcels for our first venture dining out in over a year. Exquisite food and service, as always. The four course meal, plus several amuse, is not only delicious, but a bargain, considering that you are eating the best food in the city.
