The food was not good at all. Just their dessert was good. It’s too expensive for what you get as a food quality.
The service was even better than the food and the food is superb Every single time w leave Marcel’s happy and looking forward to our next time
Thank you to everyone we love coming to Marcel’s
Wonderful experience, especially the service.
Beautiful setting, romantic atmosphere, attentive staff, and excellent food. All four courses for both of us were superb. Nothing on the menu disappointed.
The fixed menu offers many interesting choices and there is certainly not a problem finding something that you would like. The food is beautifully presented and full of flavor. We had the hamachi, lamb, duck breast, foie gras, red snapper, scallops and boudin and the cheese plate. Everyone loved everything that they ordered.
The service was well done, although we did have a long wait between our first and second course. There is a amuse bouche served at the beginning of the meal and a little chocolate dessert at the end of the meal, which is a very nice touch.
We would love to see a a la carte menu added so that we could enjoy Marcel more often.
One if the best dining experiences we've had in the USA.
This was a delightful experience for me and my friends. We were all celebrating major events in our lives . We chose the tasting menu with 6 courses. Each course was better than the earlier one. Each entre's delicate tastes and seasonings gave us a true gastronomical extravaganza.
The experience at Marcel's is ALWAYS amazing. The food as usual was wonderful.
We were on the hunt for the best restaurant in DC, and Marcel's might just be that. Unbelievable food, great wine list, classic decor and wait staff that clearly are experts in the food and drink. Expect to pay a premium, but expect the very best in dining, too.
Service and food were extraordinary. Several tasting menu options are available to match everyone’s tastes.
Excellent service and ambiance, superb food, and overall great experience! Highly recommend!
We were treated with respect.
This place is outstanding! I’d been once before several years ago and felt it would be the best bet for our first return to indoor dining since the pandemic, and we were right. All the servers worse masks and although the tables set looked like they were prepared for full capacity, it was not completely full by 7 pm (unsure if on purported not) so it never felt too crowded. I was greeted by name and well wishes for my birthday, and the attentive, gracious service extended throughout the entire evening.
The food is amazing. There were about 15 dishes or so to choose from, and you could select a 4, 5, or 7 course assortment of your choosing. I really enjoyed this option because between my husband’s and my 4 courses, we got to sample most of the menu. We also did the caviar service, and with the small portion sizes felt like this was enough, but not excessive, food. I probably could have gone for 5 courses, but might have regretted afterwards since much of it is quite rich. The mussels are not what you’d expect, in a good way. The seafood was cooked perfectly. And the Boudin Blanc is one of the better things I’ve ever tasted!
If you want to experience fine dining in DC, you can’t go wrong with Marcel’s!
Marcel’s is back! Somehow Chef Robert had managed to bring DC’s finest restaurant back to pre-pandemic levels of cuisine and service. And it’s always a great adventure with new preparations and flavors. But most impressive is the attention to special customer needs. A delicious lamb dish with no garlic? Not a problem at Marcel’s!
Simply amazing! Service, food, and ambiance!! Highly recommend.
Wonderful to return to Marcel’s, where the menu is exquisite and the service impeccable. You don’t go here for economy but to feel like you’re the most important guest in the room (even when you’re not anyone “important”). The tasting menu had so many delights it was difficult to choose. Every dish was perfectly crafted and beautifully presented by Marcel’s expert waitstaff. So glad to see you all again!
Boudin blanc and scallop were the winners. Not quite as special as it was pre-pandemic but still a wonderful place to celebrate a birthday.
Always perfect service, led by Vinny, and wonderful food!
An excellent meal in a lovely, relaxing setting, start to finish!
Such a great date night
Delightful experience & great service!
The hamachi had the best mushroom “sauce” blending all the flavors of the dish together in one spoonful was the best ever!
Mother’s day was great
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.
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,
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
