Marlow Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Wait staff tried to be accommodating, items listed on website are no longer available. Also most items listed on the brunch cocktao9 menu were not available because there was no bartender. Waiter said he could cocktails that were similar. Just need up ordering proseco.
The restaurant was unpleasantly noisy, but that's often the case on a Friday evening. Much more aggravating was being seated in a place where nearly every server bumped into my chair, or into me, when going to and from the kitchen. NOT A SINGLE ONE APOLOGIZED! That's really unacceptable!
The hostess did not acknowledge my reservation although she checked for it and wasn’t pleasant when I asked for a table change. The special deal of the evening was a bottle of quite good wine for half price and we were reminded twice. My dinner partner’s portion of risotto was small but good and my marguerite pizza ample and excellent. The bavoise for dessert was delicious.
Nice space/atmosphere but the pros end there. Poor service from the moment we arrived. Cocktails alone took 30 minutes to reach our table. The pork belly was dry, steak was inedible and overpriced, the risotto was okay. Would not recommend and will not be back.
Food was delicious but service was cold. We showed up a few minutes early for our reservation and we were treated as if we’d made a major social error. It was suggested that we eat at the bar which we did and it was fine. It just seemed as if the restaurant was overwhelmed with the crowd.
Our New Year's Eve dinner was worth the high price. Each of the three courses was exquisite, with subtle and unusual flavor combinations. My tuna appetizer featured tender raw slices of tuna in a beet-lime sauce - the color was stunning! - with tiny pieces of apple and a few small, intense mint leaves.
The portions were small, actually perfect for me. My only disappointment was that the restaurant did not serve coffee.
The restaurant is ideally located if one plans to attend an event at the Cathedral of St. John the Devine. The food was fresh and well-prepared, and the staff was attentive. I would, however, remove some of the pillows on the long bench, which interfere with seating.
We made a reservation then couldn’t catch a cab.. called to say we would be 15 min late, when we got there, the hostess managed to find a bar table for two- perfect! The food was excellent, and the medium rare steak was fantastic. The service was excellent and friendly, would definitely go again when in NYC
We went a few days ago hoping for a good experience, but not really knowing what to expect. The food was excellent, the wait staff warm and helpful and efficient. We had the stuffed chicken and the steak, as well as wonderful appetizers and cocktails. Reasonably priced. We enjoyed the entire evening.
This restaurant was a pleasant surprise that I found on Yelp to take my neice to who attends Columbia University. The staff was very charming, enthusiastic about their menu and really pointed us in the right direction for ordering. I would highly recommend this restaurant for its terrific vibe, quaint atmosphere and cool bar.
The restaurant is pretty with a creative menu. Tuna crudo with tiny diced pear. Ravioli with lemon ricotta. The hostess was more perfunctory than warm. The waitress more efficient than attentive. With a location so close to Columbia U and what I'd suspect would be a broad potential employee base (students who need extra income!) it seems it would not be that difficult to hire staff members who enhance the dining experience versus ones who simply go through the motions. We did appreciate the offer to sample our wines by the glass before choosing our selections but were surprised there was no malbec available. Would definitely go back again but can't help but feel the back of the house deserves a better front of the house.
A lovely local corner bistro with views onto the Close at the Cathedral St. John the Divine, Marlow does a fine job recreating Hemingway's "a clean, well-lighted place" with a charming atmosphere and a courteous staff—and food that is as comforting as the setting.
This was my second time at Marlow's Bistro, the food and service was consistently excellent! A fantastic restaurant in the Columbia University neighborhood and is great for having lunch in a serene setting! Great for business lunches or meetings with friends.
I dine at Marlow frequently. The food is reliably quite good and the service usually excellent. On this occasion, the service was not quite as efficient as in the past. The restaurant has updated its menu and there are some interesting new offerings. Marlow continues to be a pleasant and reliable place for dinner with friends.
