Great food, lovely atmosphere, fantastic cocktails. The only issue was our table was by a door and it was VERY cold that night and drafty inside, and we asked to move and they were unable to move us due to another party coming to the table across the way. While we understood, I would have had blankets on hand, the seats were a cold metal, the door behind me was metal, etc. They did turn up the heat, and, if they had come over to me and given me a blanket for my chair and shoulders if they couldn't move my table it would have gone a long way. And everything else was fantastic.

We were seated in the backroom, which was very loud and not very appealing overall.
Per our request, the hostess who was very pleasant re-seated us in the front room. That was much better although the tables are spaced very close together.

The food and service was excellent.

Our dinner at Marjorie's was treat. Donna, the owner, was open and told us about the restaurant's name. We told her we were attending a play and she was very attentive to our time. The food was outstanding. Both entrees, chicken tika masala and gnocci were delicious and the carrots with za'atar amazing. I highly recommend Marjorie's.

Food was really good but the service was lacking. We had a reservation but stood and waited for a solid 15 minutes while our table sat empty. The two waitresses were also seating people and didn't think it was a priority to let us sit down. After we got seated we were rushed to order our meals at the same time as our drinks. We never received our wine until after out food was brought out. Not the way it should be. We did love our food and dessert (homemade ice cream and sorbet) was out of this world!

The food is creative and well worth a visit, the black cod dish was exceptioanl, and the plantain chips a must have. The dissapointment is service, which was very slow with some requests ignored altogether. I ordered a glass of wine from the owner, after a 15 minute wait I asked the server to please bring it, I was assured it would be brought immediately, it never came. The menu items were priced fairly, however the cocktails were very overpriced, a single shot beverage was 14.00, while a Nonalcoholic beverage was 10.00, very steep for a casual restaurant.

This place was great!! My intent was to go for Seattle Restaurant Week- I wish there would have been more details on which days they were participating though-I couldn't find this info on the website. I'd also like some heads up on the drink pricing: I got a couple old fashioneds and while they were AMAZING they were pricey without knowing beforehand. The pricing really threw me; but other than that: beautiful place, will go back again.

Six of us went to Marjorie for Seattle Restaurant Week dinner. There was a good variety of options on the special 3-course menu. We went off the menu for a couple appetizers which were very good - chicken tikka masala and fried plantain chips. Their back room is set up well for larger parties. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The best part was a visit by Donna, the owner, who was very pleasant and shared the story of her mother, for whom the restaurant is named after.

Why did I wait so long before returning to Marjorie? Had dinner with friends for Restaurant Week and was immediately captivated by Marjorie’s. The restaurant is so charming, cozy and inviting. The service was wonderful. And the food was divine! Highlights were the plantain chips/bean dip, pork ragout, miso cod, and apple crisp/ice cream. So happy to have re-discovered Marjorie’s!

It was our first time here and it was a vibrate atmosphere. It’s smaller than I thought it would be but that made it feel cooler. The food was wonderful and the margaritas were excellent. Outside patio was closed due to temperature but I can only imagine how that will add the the cool vibe if it was open. We will definitely be back. Thank for a very fun first time. Sherry W.

I really enjoyed my dinner at this cozy restaurant. The decor is funky and original and the music soundtrack was similarly unexpected and interesting. Service was very friendly. My wine, a big red from Washington called "The Buzz," was delicious. I tried the Bibb salad, which was perfect, and the simple but very flavorful bucatini-like pasta with truffles. Make a reservation -- the place was jammed by 7 pm.

What a great time we had in our 1st night in Seattle! Katie was our server and she did a really good job. We the Burrata, Mexican Street Corn and Hush Puppies (the best) for dinner: Halibut, Duck, Steak Tartare and Hanger Steak everything was delicious. The cocktails were spot on, kudos to the bartender! Great spot out on the patio and a wonderful time. Make sure you stop in for dinner and drinks if you are in town.

Marjorie Restaurant is a special gem. The food is delicious and well-apportioned. The atmosphere is relaxing but yet professional. The night we were there the restaurant owner even came over to our table to make sure all was going well. We also received a "going-away" gift of plantains for the road! Definitely a must eat experience!

Wonderful. Food was flavorful and presented beautifully. It was a fun cozy setting allowing tables to interact a bit and get recommendations from each other. The type of restaurant where you just can’t help ogling each dish that comes out to other tables. The ambiance was perfect for a Saturday night date. Oh and the cocktails were amazing as well. I couldn’t have asked for more of the experience.
