Marchesa’s is adorable, quaint, feels good to be there. The food and service were also great.
Great service and atmosphere both upstairs and downstairs bars!
Amazing experience. We got there when they first opened and we had the entire place to ourselves for a while.
Great food, moderate portion and great server!
The appetizers and desserts were good, but very disappointed in the entrees. I ordered the scallops, only 3 come with the dish and they were all completely over cooked. My husband ordered the sea bass and it was over cooked as well and lacked flavor. Definitely not an ‘upscale’ restaurant.
Hello, SarahTT! Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your recent experience...we are sorry you didn't enjoy the scallops and sea bass. We shared your information with the culinary staff & they also send their apologies. Please feel free to call us & we'll happily send a gift card to come back & enjoy another experience. We'd appreciate the opportunity to show you how delicious these items can be & again, we're sorry they didn't delight you the first time! We look forward to it!
My niece enjoyed her first caviar, escargot with champagne and chilled vodka. The first time food was decent the service was excellent. The staff are professional and warm. Nice mix-95 years old birthday with family. Married couple with a well behaved child celebrating mom’s birthday. Pretty place
Everything about Marchesa is wonderful. The food is delicious and nicely portioned. The service was flawless and warm, and the restaurant is absolutely beautiful. We will be going back soon!
This was our first time dining here and we loved it. The food was excellent. Unfortunately we had a very loud and large party right next to our table which changed the experience but we are looking forward to returning when it’s not the holidays.
What a wonderful place! The ambiance is lovely, and the menu is extensive enough to have something for every one. Staff was helpful but not intrusive. Marchesa is perfect for special occasions but also good for every day fine dining. Good wine list, and the Champaign cave bar downstairs is a treat. This time of year it’s open Wed-Sat.
Wonderful and delicious dinner - with excellent service. Sea bass was great!
A great find! Nice ambience and decor was beautiful. Joined two friends for a dinner to celebrate the holidays. Food was delicious and good size portions. Would return.
Dinner at Marchesa, as always was exceptional. The food is well prepared and tasty and is augmented only by exceptional attention to service. Whether it’s your first time or a regular, everyone makes you feel special. And a special shootout to Francisco, the restaurant manager who always goes beyond normal to make you feel special.
The menu is extensive and has a great variety of food and preparations. The ambiance is amazing without be pretentious. Katherine, Francisco and Elaine are so welcoming and professional. We have been there many times and it is always consistent and fabulous in every way. Cannot recommend it enough. Great for a romantic dinner or with friends.
Our server was very attentive. We had the charcuterie, which was so-so, entrees were good, dessert was meh.
The very best in “French comfort food”. Duck breast perfectly cooked, rare. Classic steak tartare.
What a pleasure
Wonderful! Elaine and the team Marchesa gave us an evening to remember. The service was warm, friendly and professional; the food and drink were delicious and fulfilling. We look forward to our next visit to Chicago and dinner at Marchesa (or Dubai)
Hostess was abrupt, shared seating was uncomfortable, could not hear each other across the table due to the music and noise, table space inadequate for more than one shared plate, hard dinner rolls.
Overall it was near perfect. Appetizers of Burrata and escargot was fabulous! However, our entrees were lukewarm and not hot. They were tasty though. We love this restaurant!
Loved Marchesa! It’s a lovely experience from the ambiance to the food to the service. Nothing but good things to say about our experience.
Wonderful restaurant to have a date with that someone special. The atmosphere was just the right vibe to have a great dinner date and have great conversation.
Great dining experience all the way around. Great food and great service in a beautifully decorated space. Best kept secret is the Champagne Cellar in the basement for after dinner cocktails.
Great food. Great service. Nice atmosphere. Two large tables next to us were so noisy that we had a terrible experience and we left before finishing our meal.
Too bad, but I would not come back.
The “best special restaurant“ in Chicago! My favorite.
While visiting family in the Chicago area we wanted a nice dinner in the city. I found Marchesa on Open Table - what a score. We arrived early for our reservation so enjoyed a cocktail in the champagne bar. Cozy vibe and great cocktails. Dinner upstairs was delicious. Do not hesitate the caviar parfait was a started I will never forget. We had a party of 6, ordered 6 different dishes and were all very happy with our choices. We will definitely back when we’re in Chicago.
Overall a disappointing experience. Wine was mediocre and overpriced. The food was awful. Bland, no flavor. Overpriced. Service and ambiance were good….. Honestly, there are a lot of great restaurants in the area, I wouldn’t waste my time
or money here. I do not plan on going back
Beautiful place , great service and ambiance and great food
Phenomenal. We had the best table, the best service ever and delicious food.
This was our first visit to Marchesa, and we were very satisfied. It was a delightful experience in a classy and classic restaurant, and the food was quite good, service very attentive and capable.
The place is very well decorated. However, the food and the service are nothing extraordinary.
Outstanding cooking, great waiter who was most helpful with menu suggestions, but too too noisy, we couldn’t talk to each other as we planned, had asked for business table,
This is our second time back, and it was everything we enjoyed about our first visit. Well curated wine list, excellent service, the food is very composed to celebrate the season but also well conceived sides and great execution. We were there for a birthday celebration and we had a really nice time.
one of the best dinners i’ve had in chicago!
My wife and I had an amazing time!
The food was perfectly cooked!
The French Onion soup was the best we’ve ever had!
We plan to go back in the future!
Too noisy and food ok but not extraordinary.
Thoroughly enjoyed a romantic evening. Nice selections of wine and excellent food.
Marchesa is great. The food is excellent every time. I would eat there every night if I could!
Love the ambiance. Food was good except the risotto.
Great place for an intimate business dinner for physicians.
Lovely service and food.
