                                                        Oysters were the highlight. The low, surprisingly, was a bland pasta with blander lobster. Excellent wine selections. Service was informed and attentive., the menu could use a bit more variety. Quite the hipster vibe. Blaring music makes conversation nearly impossible. Lovely room, however. My advice? Avoid the lobster, sit next to your dining companion and enjoy the oysters and wine.

                                                        My son brought me here for Mother's day brunch. I ordered the lobster omelette, it was a cold pre-made plain omelette stuffed with a seafood mixture that was low on lobster. It was the kind of mixture that you buy frozen at a grocery store. I ate it, to not upset my son , since he was so excited to finally try a restaurant designed by his "favorite" chef ( he is 10) . I asked the waitress about the smashed potatoes , and she informed me that they were indeed small potatoes smashed and fried, like I had at another restaurant . When they arrived it was not as described, yet another cold dish of a partially mashed potato, that tasted like it had come out of the fridge: old and cold. Once again, I tried to contain my displeasure for my son's sake. He ordered the chicken burger and was super eager to eat it, however the bottom bun was completely soaked upon arrival. When the waitress realized it had not been touched she asked what the problem was. I told her and she said if she "had time , she would take it back to the kitchen". This never happened . My son was SO disappointed that he didn't even want to try anything else on the menu. I told the waitress to wrap it up to go. I decided to reheat the chicken burger for my dinner later that evening and I was hoping that some time in the oven would salvage it , but it was horrible... It was so subpar that I was disappointed all over again. I eat at all calibers of restaurants and this was just bad overall. The only positive thing that I can say was that the decor was great ,perfect for instagram pics and stories, but I would not recommend this place to anyone , waste of time and money.

                                                        Beautiful restaurant, great music and ambiance. Food and drinks are delicious although pricey! In that type of restaurant where you pay good money you expect to have a great experience. The service was less than average which was disappointing. Waiter was blasé, made unsolicited comments about the amount we ate and treated us like we didn’t have money. You then get asked to leave the table which is expected but little did we know we had to reserve to be able to use the “lounge”. It would’ve been nice to be informed. I went there many times before the pandemic and the experience was very different… it will be a while until I go back or recommend it.

                                                        They cancelled our reservation without telling us so we only found out once we got there. They did not provide us with another option to improve our experience. We had to go see another waitress to let us still be seated and was only able to order drinks and not food. Our waiter practically ignored us the whole night as well. Ive had better experiences at Marcus before but this was an insanely terrible night they gave us.

                                                        It was the first experience having brunch at Marcus. I enjoyed it very much, the waitress was great in offering her suggestion for my meal. The hostess was kind to move our party to another table as well. The lemon mascarpone pancakes was full of flavor, I even forgot about adding maple syrup. The coffee was hot and the pot was left on the table for refills. Will recommend to my friends for brunch.

                                                        The ambiance and service was the best! We had the tuna tartar. Just amazing. The grilled octopus was very good. The sashimi platter seemed very popular. The group next to us said it was amazing. The Piccadilly pasta was indeed a bit bland yet spicy. Overall a must try resto!

                                                        The service was very slow and the staff were not very attentive. The cappuccino was excellent. The eggs Benedict were refined but overall lacking. The side potatoes were cold when they were served. Overall, underwhelming experience.

                                                        Great spot to eat, but a bit on the expensive side. If loud music bothers you, opt for the main dining room over the terrace.

                                                        An outstanding meal and service. The price tag is also outstanding :-) We all loved it, but the music was WAY TOO LOUD. Its a restaurant not a dance night club. If they would fix this, then you wouldn't complain about the 200-250$ per person meal. Other than that.. outstanding.
