It was all delicious. I would describe our dining experience as classic American with local and seasonal twists. Gracious service and comfortable ambiance. There likely was a bit of a mix up about how well done my husband wanted his order and instead both were cooked to my taste.

As usual, Marjorie never disappoints! Halibut and Duck were the selections that evening and the quality and presentations were awesome. Plantains (of course) and cheese plate for appetizers really started the meal off right. We come to Seattle about 4 times a year and never miss the opportunity to dine here.

Food wasn’t impressive - Wasn’t bad by any means but for lacked simple seasoning like salt and pepper. Friends of mine ordered the gnocchi and were surprised that the portion was so small. We also got the pork chop which case with beans. They were very undercooked. Service was slow, but everyone was nice. Not the worst experience but I was not impressed with my experience here and will likely not recommend to friends.

I am a vegetarian and was able to find food to fit my diet. We had the plantain appetizer with bean dip. I am not as excited by the plantains as some people are but the black bean dip was very tasty. My entree was nettle risotto which was fantastic. It came with tempura maitake mushrooms on top. My dessert was to die for...chocolate pot de creme with garam masala spices and broken up gingerbread. Her food is nicely flavored.

"I love the vibe of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The plantains, hanger steak, and suck breast were amazing.
The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the Service was well-timed and friendly without making us feel rushed. The wines were pricey, but worth it.

We had not been to Marjorie Restaurant in a long time but now I remember why we had not returned. The food tasted good but the portions were small and the items were very overpriced and the service was very slow so our dinner was over 3 hours from the time we arrived at our table.
Also, the noise level made it impossible for us to talk to our guests who were sitting across the table as they could not hear anything being said.
I don't think we will return to Marjorie and for sure our guests who were there for the first time
have already stated they would not return. I hope that they can correct these deficiencies soon as we heard similar comments from the guests seated at other tables

This place is always wonderful, great food, a little pricey but well worth it. The only issue I have is that every time I’ve gone, they’ve asked me in the middle of the meal to either move tables or break up my table.

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.
