New recipes = Great!

Old recipes = such as the watermelon tomato salad downgraded a bit sadly. Disappointed.

Portions were smaller than usual and prices more expensive…

But overall still amazing, great service would recommend but Maison Boulud, Leméac, Milos, Jatoba , Béatrice even Monarque are over Marcus right now.

It was our second visit to Marcus. The first time was for lunch and service was weak. Food was OK. This time, we were there for dinner. Everything was pefect. The tomato salad and squid are both great apetizers. We shared a fish for our main course, excellent. The service was friendly and professionnal. Perfect dinner.

Had breakfast with family. Restaurant is beautiful and service was excellent. Food was good but I was expecting to be wowed considered the price and the chef. I had the waffle and was underwhelmed. I could of made the same at home. The omelettes that we’re ordered looked nice however only came with toast. Everything was an extra and expensive. Three little sausages for $9.

We waited 1 hour and 15 mins for our breakfast food and when we got it, it was cold. We had to ask for sugar, syrup etc. Not sure if they were not staffed properly. Also the busboys we’re bringing our food out for us. Our friend went to the bathroom and saw our food. He said our food is coming now but it sat under the lamps for another 20 mins. Very disappointing. I definitely would not recommend it to anyone. I was so excited to come to this restaurant and could not wait and wow never did I expect this kind of service.

Food was excellent. Service was good but a bit slow on topping up our wine.

COVID precautions - This was the first restaurant I've been to that relied on the plastic barriers between tables rather than ensuring tables were 6 feet or more apart. I think if I had known that I would not have attended. The tables to either side of us were in a group and kept getting up to run back and forth between their tables to talk / take pictures for what I gather was a birthday celebration. Each time they got up they bumped the plastic barrier into us and we got to see their butts rubbing up against the plastic. That part of the experience wasn't very pleasant.

Positives first, the food, ppl watching and the vibe is why you go to Marcus. It does not disappoint
The restaurant was full and they did a great job with the partitions to comply with COVID-19 regulations. It did not take away from the ambiance at all.
They are short staffed and it shows. Although the waiters, asst waiters sommeliers and busboys all do what they need to do to meet the patrons needs, it did not go unnoticed. We saw all of you and say thank you. You collectively made our return visit to this restaurant during COVID-19, a pleasant one.
