    Went for our anniversary. Although pricey, I knew what to expect. Only criticism is that although the restaurant had many available tables, we were squished between 2 tables that were very close.

    We dined at Marcus on our girl’s trip to Montreal. We enjoyed the Seafood tower and thought it was a great price for what you got. Every piece of seafood was fresh & high quality. Our only disappointment was the service. When the waiter came to our table he was very attentive & knowledgeable - however, we waited almost 45 minutes for our drinks & even longer for our food. It seemed that they probably needed more staff. Overall, we had an amazing experience & felt bad for the waitstaff who seemed to be running around the crazy trying to keep up with all of their tables.

    The service was slow. For the price range I expect a fastest service and more attention into filing my wine glass with the bottle I bought. Having the wine card on a tablet is a bit of an irritant as we had to swipe to many pages. Put in in a PDF so we can scroll at least. Food was good. Server and maitre D were kind.

    My son and I were excited to eat at Marcus. The place has a great ambience, service was excellent, and the food did not disappoint. We enjoyed everything we ate - burrata, truffle fries (to die for!), piccadilly, and lamb chops. We will definitely eat at Marcus again next time we come to Montreal.

    Terrible experience and service. We waited 15 min before someone even brought us a menu or water. Waitress was not even apologetic . She then took a long time to get our order. We ordered drinks at the beginning of the meal and we saw them sitting at the bar for 20 Minutes before we finally got the manger who then brought it over. There was no apologies or any way to make our experience better. Manager just said he would comp the two drinks which were watered down anyway by the time they came to us. Food was tasteless and not that great. Waste of money and time

    Very expensive and overpriced for what you get. We tried many different dishes and all of them were bland and small portions. Do not recommend. There are many other beautiful restaurants in Montreal that have fabulous food.

    Un environnement qui nous rappelle un peu certain restaurant de Paris avec une végétation juste assez présente pour ne pas être envahissante mais qui donne une atmosphère extraordinaire. Nous avons choisi plusieurs entrées- 6 plats au total - tout était parfait, aucune mauvaise note autant au niveau de la qualité que de la présentation. Le service est irréprochable en plus. Bref la perfection, Bravo équipe du Marcus. À refaire!

    I don’t mind paying a lot for good quality food. A $26 breakfast shouldn’t include 3 thin greasy pieces of bacon and bagged home fries. And then to charge $9 side of bacon for the same 3 thin pieces of bacon. I was expecting thicker butcher cut pork bacon and maybe hand cut fries, or some interesting flavour on the home fries. I was frankly shocked at the lack of attention to detail regarding food, especially given the four seasons brand. The service is was great, the ambience is excellent. The food was just very off-brand and not good enough to justify the price.

    Our reservations was for 6:30, we didn't receive our entries till 7:30-7:45 pm No server came to apologize until we flagged someone down. The server even deliberately ignored us as he walked by our table. Server gave us the excuse that the kitchen was short staff. Appetizers were coming out of the kitchen for all the tables but we can see entrees were extremely slow across the restaurant. No manager ever greeted us or apologize regarding the service, not even after we spoke to the server. This is not the 4 Seasons experience!

    This restaurant came highly recommended. The food was delicious, the somalier paired my wine perfectly with one of the best filet mignon dinner I’ve had to date. Service however was quite disappointing. It took almost 10 minutes to be greeted by our server. Surprisingly he performed zero quality checks on our main course. I had to call over another server to request a wine list so that I would have my wine poured before my meal was done. After dinner I was still hungry and called my server over to have another look at the menu. It was 22:10 when he had informed me that the kitchen was closed and if I was still hungry I might be able to order some bread. Needless to say, the delicious food and classy ambience were not enough to outshine the poor service. Having not been advised that there was a last call for food, I left hungry and extremely unsatisfied.

    Go there for the ambience but the food is far too overpriced for what you get. No sides or added extras like salad or fruit. Service was good but there are plenty other much better breakfast places out there!

    The food was terrible I don’t mind paying a lot for good food but the dinner costed me $ 200 and both my friend and I were very disappointed. Yet I had to leave a 15% tip for a waiter that seemed sleepy and tired and they took forever to bring our food when we were starving. The fact that I told them it was my friends birthday and all you guys had to offer is a lit candle in an empty cup that was so cheap. I’ve been to so many upscale places and we were offered dessert by a chef or a drink whatever a small gesture. I’ve been going to Marcus for a while now mainly for high tea/ lunch or brunch but it was my first time having dinner there and will definitely not be back for dinner. I had picadilly I was told the pasta is thinner than a regular spaghetti it turned super thick and didn’t taste good. My friend had the filet mignon it was tender but that taste was bitter. She also ordered a margarita and she said that was the worst she ever had and we had grilled octopus and the cabbage or salad was so bitter and didn’t mix well with the pesto so it taste horrible. I also I often tag you and post about it on social media giving you free publicity and many ppl I know went there because I recommended your brunch menu. Anyways the service is always pretty cold usually the managers are more welcoming but the waiters and waitresses are often tired or not so hospitable but I don’t mind as long as they got my order right and my meal is good.

    Moved our daughter to Montréal for grad school, we are at Marcus the day we arrived from Toronto. Great service, good and atmosphere. The bar area outside the restaurant was meh, but once inside, the night was lovely. I highly recommend it.
