Loved this place! Service was good, drinks were great, food was fantastic. Ordered just some apps to go with our drinks but all were generous portion sizes. The lobster bisque was delish and the brussel sprouts were the best I’ve had.
Great food and our go to place however our wait was over an hour and half after our reservation time they compensated us very kindly but it was just far too long to wait
Ambiance was cute, intimate and dimly lit. Stunning aesthetic. Food was delicious, very well seasoned and prepared! Only reason I give it 4 stars for food is because my date’s steak was a little too chewy.
This is my 4th time eating at Marchesa. We celebrated a friend’s birthday there last night at my recommendation. My friends really enjoyed their meals monkfish and divers scallops. I ordered the tuna, done to the chef’s choice, which was medium rare. The tuna was fresh, flown in that morning.
And it was awful. Undercooked (raw red), tough, dry and tasteless. The banana on the bananas foster sundae was too I ripe — you couldn’t even cut it.
There’s lots to like about Marchesa. Just skip the tuna and the bananas foster dessert.
Quiet, elegant and comfortable. Service was excellent and food was very good.
We had a wonderful experience. Beautiful decor, wonderful food. Definitely will return
birthday dinner. beautiful place
Food and ambiance was spectacular! The service was top notch as well. Great overall experience.
Beautiful interior. Exceptional service and great food.
Birthday abs it was terrific. Complimentary glasses of champagne to start and every dish was fantastic and service was lovely. Would definitely go again.
A neighborhood favorite for us to dine with friends, family and business associates. Always an excellent meal and friendly, knowledgeable service.
This was my first time there! And it was amazing! The food was good, staff very friendly. I definitely will be back to try some more food on the menu.
Great atmosphere and service, wonderful French cuisine.
A very lovely evening with good food and great service.
It was great.
My wife and I had been to the restaurant pre-covid and although we loved the restaurant interior design were underwhelmed by the food.
We decided to try it again and the food was terrific.
I had the roast chicken and my wife had the scallops. Both were excellent.
I like restaurants quiet and this was mostly that way until the end when people at the bar got noisy.
The food is very good and ambience charming.
What a novelty to sit in plush, comfortable seats, have a quiet conversation, and find food one can’t make at home! Marchesa’s ambiance, inspired by a European noblewoman from the 1920’s who walked her diamond-collared pet cheetah in San Marco square in Venice, is lovingly hand-curated, elegant and cheeky. Rather than boring the diner to death with kale salad and shishito everything, Marchesa delights with caviar service and chicken liver mousse, perfect sea bass and a whole roast chicken. Many European wines by the glass. Our server, Lauro, charmed us, and the rest of the staff was always on point. For such a chic, imaginative experience, prices were very reasonable. We will be back!
Dinner was delicious. Filet Mignon and mushroom soup the best. Beautiful room. Service was great. Loved it
Wonderful experience. Great service- big Thank you to Daniel, our person, he was very nice and knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
Food was AMAZING and I love the decor. The service was wonderful too :)
I just love this place. Everything was perfect. I’m coming back soon
What an outstanding dinner. From the second we walked in, we felt transported from Chicago to Paris. Really a wonderful experience. Exactly what a fine dining restaurant is supposed to do in my opinion, take you to a new place.
The wine list is terrific, and in particular I'd recommend the sparkling wine from Chateau Lisennes. My wife said the tri color salad was one of the best she's ever had. She was also very much enjoyed the lentils entree, as a healthy option. I thought the Shrimp Jovan appetizer and beef bourguignon entree were both outstanding.
Also, the service was terrific. Super friendly and casual. Professional but not stuffy.
The wait staff was incredible the food was stunning Lee delicious. If I could give it six stars out of five I would.
Amazing food and service!!!
We were seated promptly, but we had to wait 30 minutes before receiving a drink or bread. Once those arrived, the meal moved along at a nice pace and the food was excellent. Our waiter was friendly and very good, but they need more staff. I know this is a problem everywhere right now. Just serve drinks right away and that buys time with customers.
It was amazing all around. one of best french food in Chicago. Service was great as well. Restaurant was elegant decorated.
lovely restaurant, loved everything except we were disappointed with the deserts, my wifes apple tart was cold, other than that we will be back
Great service, great food, Nicky special, Didier was wonderful, great, great!
Outstanding food & ambiance! Loved it!
Very handsome interior but too dark for easy menu reading. Noise level very high when we entered at 8pm but Improved later. A/C very cold. Captain lowered playlist volume and raised temp but room still felt chilly.
Waited at least ten minutes before server took drink orders. Another very long wait for apps after we placed our dinner orders, then one more for mains. Server frequently either invisible or very obviously avoiding eye contact. Brusque and uninterested when interacting with us.
Food when it arrived was well prepared and attractively presented.
It felt as if there were some post-Covid rough spots that still need ironing out for the restaurant to fully live up to its reputation. Our dinner at Marquesa was a thank you to old friends who had hosted us for a week-long visit to Chicago and we wanted it to feel special. Instead we were frustrated by perfunctory service and long waits between courses.
Excellent food and I was very pleased at the number of solid vegetarian options! Wonderful meal and a lovely ambiance.
Amazing food and service! Well definitely be coming back
Amazing dinner. I was there to celebrate my Husband dinner and we have a wonderful dinner. Food was fantastic and the place is so elegant and beautiful. Manager Francisco was so special with our table. Highly recommend it for any occasion. My husband had an amazing birthday dinner
Appetizers, sides and desserts were fantastic. The entrees were good but not outstanding. Excellent service - we will go again and try different entrees.
lamb chops were great. shrimp jovan was great. mushroom risoto and escargo not to my liking.
Our first time here, and we had a lovely experience. Phillipe was an excellent server with a great personality. We will request him next time. Our appetizers, entrees and desserts were excellent. Thanks for a very nice evening.
Good to be back in this excellent restaurant. Impeccable service, perfect ambience, and the food...
Perfect ambiance, professional service, great food. Went for my wife's birthday. Couldn't have been happier.
What a beautiful dining room! And great service! The food and wine were excellent!
