What happened to the Marlowe Burger?? I came here several months ago and was blown away by the exceptionally indulgent and mouthwatering burger that this place is famous for, or was famous for. This second time, the burger paled in comparison. It even looked different -- smaller and less extravagant. Lame bun, sticky flat patty and no explosion of varied flavors I enjoyed in the past. I thought I was losing it but my hot dinner date echoed my woes. At least the atmosphere is nice. Nothing like snuggling up with your date in one of the corner booths <3
Marlowe is consistently amazing. Every dish — appetizers, mains and then the finishing desserts!!
Service is impeccable!! Run to Marlowe!!
Marlowe’s Is a gem. The menu is very interesting and varied. All 4 of us ordered different dishes, all were terrific. Service excellent. Our best recommendation!
Very interesting brunch small plates. Presentation and taste superb.
Little gem salad was refreshing and beautifully plated with delicate ribbons of root vegetables. Ribeye was generous-sized, juicy and served with a delicious pan sauce. Enjoyed huge scoops of their vanilla and espresso ice cream for dessert.
Jam packed! The tables are too small and too packed together to comfortable seat parties of four or more. The noise level in a packed room is high, so it became even more difficult to hear guests at our table when music was being blast above. Very distracting.
The food and service, on the hand, were exceptional. The menu could use more than just two entrees. Otherwise, a weekday lunch offering looks more like brunch.
My first time there, and certainly not the last!
We had the steak tartare, chickory salad for apps (both delish), followed by a chicken sandwich, and their outstanding burger. I'll be back!!
We had the open faced Reuben and burger. The Baker was a nice cocktail. Food good but overall
Wont rush back. Service had a sense of entitlement- doing a favor to the customer. Place is a bit cramped too-
Good place to be if you wish to be with a young crowd. Food is quite good at a reasonable price. Service is a bit less attentive than I would have expected. Space is tight and tables are small.
The polenta was great! The ribeye not so much. Nice little restaurant.
Great spot for lunch. Delicious burger and chicken sandwich. Crispy fries. solid beer selection and extensive wine list.
Wonderful, as always!
Lunch can be very noisy, but the burgers are worth it.
Gets too loud at lunch
Marlowe is a meat lovers delight.
High quality food and excellent preparation.
Our server was great. She was friendly and genuinely concerned about our experience.
Noise level is a bit high during late lunch for conversation since I have some hearing loss, and Marlowe is a popular spot.
It is quieter during early lunch or dinner.
Everything was great! Foods amazing and front hosts/ servers offered drinks while we waited for our table. Would give five stars only problem was I booked the reservation a week prior 8pm and we have to wait until 830 for our table
Best breakfast in San Francisco. Everything was delicious
Actually, I've always wanted to give this restaurant a 5 star, because every time I would fly up to Bay area this place would be to go for brunch or drinks and I would drive from San Jose after flight from San Diego just for their Pimm's Cup cocktail and some nibble... Unfortunately, after 4 times dinning here this last Saturday 1/27/18 I lost my appetite for Marlowe because of how unwelcome we felt, we made very late 10:30 PM Saturday reservation, we flew in to SF very late so there was not a lot of options to dine so late and when I saw Marlowe on Open Table for 10:30 PM I was exited to try their dinner service, since we loved it previous times.. so we show up on time we have our dinner and of course my fave Pimm's cup and food was decent I mean the kitchen folks were rushing meal, I asked my rib eye medium rare and it came out rare ...
However, since we came so late we could tell everything was rushed and the worst part the staff turned on the lights bright right after we said we don't want any desert... Like really Marlowe? If we are not paying more you low key want us out ? I understand its 11 PM and people want to go home and we are the last table at the restaurant, but its lack of professionalism to turn on the lights bright when you seated us and we are paying for the experience...
It's pity, for great restaurant that it is. Not coming here again, there's other good places in San Francisco with great food, drinks and service that you don't need to feel rushed...
The only reason I gave it a 4 star is because when I ordered the devil egg, I didn’t even get the full egg, it was ‘half’ an egg for a price.
Other than that the food tasted great, ambiance is great and the music is awesome. Oh and we paid over $70 just for four alcoholic beverages 😱
Went for my ten year anniversary and it was perfect. The lighting, ambiance...the food was really good, champagne lovely....couldn't have asked for more!
