Delicious food for all. 2 of the 4 of us are vegan and they accommodated us very nicely. Antoine was our server and he was the best! Great drinks, great appetizers (might I suggest the plantains) and perfectly seasoned entrees. A wonderful evening indeed!

How disappointing. The menu looks creative but the plates are small for the high price. The service was atrocious. The waitress was attentive, kept checking in on us and filling our glasses. But my goodness, we arrived at 5:30 pm, didn't take particularly long to order one appetizer and two main courses, but we were not served until after 6:30 pm. And we were only one of three tables at the time! There is no reason to return.

Although nearly all tables were seated after us, they received their orders in a timely fashion while we were left waiting for our orders (two plates of halibut and a cheeseburger) for over an hour. We finally had to get up and ask the server what the deal was, because no one came to give us any update on the status of our orders. When our food was finally brought, our fish was dry and overcooked and there was zero acknowledgement or apology for our extended wait. Very disappointing, especially as one of us had been here before multiple times and chose it as our dining experience for the other two visiting from out of town.

I had a girls trip to Seattle to celebrate the birthday of a niece. We couldn't have been more pleased with our visit to Marjorie. Food and service were excellent. Service, was by far, the best experience we had on our trip. I will be recommending this restaurant to friends who visit Seattle!

We were seated just inside the restaurant with a view of the patio. Everyone enjoyed their dinner choices. You must try the plantain chips. Service was attentive especially given that it was a very busy night. Both the bread pudding and the strawberry sorbet were a delicious way to finish off a great meal- no small compliment given that I am not a big sorbet fan.

The space is very welcoming and warm, and it is a real pleasure to sit down and eat in the restaurant. It is busy, but not so loud as to interfere with conversations and the variety of food satisfied everyone, with interesting choices for vegetarians and non-veg guests. My arctic char was delicious. The owner greeted us with a smile and the overall experience was excellent.

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

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.
