Marcus delivered a high-dining experience. The appetizers (oysters and sashimi) were excellent, as were the black cod entrees. The only partial miss was the cauliflower side. The atmosphere and service were outstanding as well. As others have pointed out, the prices are high and the entree portions small, but this for us was special occasion dining and worth it.

Our reservation was on time. the staff was very attentive to all our needs, our food intollerances and requests.
Everything was impeccable.
We had the seafood tower with an addition of caviar and blinis. Every sashimi and seafood was excellent. We followed with a Tomahawk steak with vegetables. The steakwas cooked exactly to our preference.

Even though we could not see our family during this pandemic, Marius made our Christmas Eve a beautiful time to remember.

Thank you .

J’ai connu le Marcus il y deux ans. Je n’étais pas déçue lors de ma première venue.
J’y vais une fois par moi pour le brunch avec une amie. L’ambiance y est tranquille et le personnel très à l’écoute.
J’apprécie la carte qui est simple sans chichi. Les plats sont vraiment délicieux.
Cette place est devenue mon lieu de brunch mensuel.

The food wasn’t impressive at all - Very basic and tasteless Benedictine. Definitely not up-to-par for a restaurant at the Four Seasons. I’ve had dinner several times at Marcus and had Brunch there 2 years ago, it use to be better. The service was nice, but the food (Benedictine) was so very basic. Perhaps it was just a bad choice, but there shouldn’t be a bad option at Marcus.

Très décevant pour un établissement tel que le Four Seasons de ne pas avoir des fromages frais et artisanaux au déjeuner (il ne resterait plus d’OKA) et le fromage de chèvre choisi était insignifiant. Les fruits rouges étaient sans saveur ! Le DJ était bon. Frédéric au service était très sympathique aussi.

I rarely bother to write a review unless I’m very impressed with a place. However, I felt that this breakfast should get a review because it was just really mediocre for a meal that I would have expected more from. Service and ambience were both great. Friendly staff, and the room is gorgeous. But, having eaten at Red Rooster several times, I would have expected more from Marcus (not the same, just something better than what we got). I ordered the eggs Benedict and while it was perfectly executed (eggs cooked beautifully, hollandaise was smooth) it came luke warm, with a tiny piece of bacon on each muffin (that I only found on the last bite) and a mound of unseasoned spinach. There was not a garnish or a spice, there was no mention of sides (it comes with nothing else on the plate). The kids I was with got waffles, and again, they were good but not spectacular and certainly not hot. Looking at my neighbour, I saw their pancakes and oatmeal and they were equally as mediocre.
We had hoped for brunch, however, at 10:00 on a Sunday we were given a breakfast menu with no mention of brunch.
As I said, I feel that the food was dialed in and hiding behind a name that should have provided more.

Food was good but not exceptional.
Portions were big, but I am looking not for size but very high quality and well presented. So my rate is Good but not outstanding. Your restaurant is well attended, so why not shoot for the star
Oysters we very good
Spaghettis-lobster was good

Food was decent quality. Ordered a lot of seafood and it was ok, but not superior. Minimalistic food and portions were small for the price. Service and restaurant ambience was great. Would probably come here for drinks next time.

We enjoyed our meal. Oysters, burrata, octopus and black code were all very delicious. Portions are too small for the price however. Our waiter was still in training, clearly...had to ask twice for a refill of my glass of Champagne Laurent Perrier...I would've had a 4th or 5th one if he had noticed it was sitting there empty for quite a while. All together happy with our experience, slightly over priced however.

Atmosphere has not changed, the restaurant is really nice. However as opposed to 2 years, a massive change in quality. We had brunch, coffees low quality, very poor standard. Eggs Benedicts were dry, orange juice bitter ( no better than a supermarket). Well I am a massive fan of 4 seasons but so disappointing. The chef needs to be reconsidered or the manager might want to check what 4 seasons does for brunch in Toronto to give him an idea of the gaps to close.
