Restaurant Week meet with college classmate—- Open Table system was flawless and reminders worked well to confirm. We chose to dine inside but very well spaced tables (in and out) made the experience as stress-free as COVID Delta could allow. Spotless environment and genuinely solicitous waitstaff added to great traditional meals well-prepared(moules frites with warm baguette to soak up the juices and the most tender and flavorful skate with almonds in brown butter, accompanied by a reasonably priced, 2-3 pour carafe of wine and chef’s choice gazpacho appetizer)A shared dessert (Meyer lemon /elderflower tart with apricot) ended with pre-tip bill for 3 barely over $100. Prices off the special week are about 10-15% higher but still a great deal for an excellent meal and service.

We went yesterday for restaurant week dinner, party of 5. Service was too bad, food average. 2 of us ordered Goat cheese tart as an appetizer, we got the dish and 5 min later they realized that was for another table… they didn’t hesitate to take those away and served them directly 2 tables near us!!!! After we have put the cutlery in the dish, and talk and breathe without mask on top of the food…. Are we crazy? In the middle of the pandemic? Then they run out of bread, we were short of water all the time…And the waiter didn’t speak a word of English.

We expected a high end dinner and we were very disappointed, it seems they just want to make money on Rest Week, quality and service were poor….

Need stronger drinks. Old Fashions came with no cherries and no straw. Asked for more bread. Again asked for more bread. Never got my bread. Second round of drinks came just after our entrees were served. On a positive note, the food is outstanding.

Wonderful service. The food was good, but for being a James Beard nominee, I was expecting more. Portions were small, which was nice because I wasn’t absolutely stuffed leaving, but I felt detracted from the value a bit. Even with the mediocre food, the service, especially in today’s world, made this a pleasant night out.

Food and service were excellent. We had goat cheese tart and summer salad as our appetizers and the sea scallops snd short rib bourguingon as our entreés were perfectly prepared and so flavorful. Enjoyed each bite.
Service was attentive.

We work in the area and went during restaurant week and opted for that specific lunch menu. . The main course options were excellent choices but the only appetizer offered was gazpacho. There were people in my party who had allergies to nuts, tomatoes and/or onions and we had no other option included in that specific restaurant week offer.
Other than that, our main course meals were delicious. Nice ambiance and great location in the theater district!!

The service from the waitress was almost nonexistent. We finished our appetizers before we received our cocktails. I had to contact the hostess to see if our server was even working in order to get another drink. The food was good, but not great overall. The ambience was enjoyable, but the service was awful as some of the servers were visibly stressed.

Unfortunately our reservation was not honored, our table was occupied by some folks and the waiters didn't know how this could happen, since the reservation was under my name. The host offered us to wait until another table freed up, but we couldn't. I had to take my party of four elsewhere.

Lovely ambiance. The food could have been better. The broccoli flavor was great but some of he was extremely under cooked. The steak could have been better quality. It was quite tough and not very juicy or flavorful. The fries and dessert were terrific.

It was so much fun to have our "regular table" at our first post pandemic visit to Marseille.
We loved the Eggs Copenhagen and Croque Madame. Everything was perfect...

We went for a Bastille day, and though the prefix menu was an amazing deal, we passed on it. But the food was terrific, and Sy and his crew are attentive and made good when the service was a bit spotty as they were still gearing up post pandemic. We are neighborhood regulars and will very much keep enjoying. Many thanks!

I've been to Marseilles countless times, including on NYE, and I've never had an experience like I did last night. We had a reservation for 7 and my friends, who arrived ahead of me, were told they didn't have a table. That was remedied once I arrived and spoke to the host, but not good right out of the gate.

We ordered our food by 7:30 and didn't get anything other than bread (and the waiter was nice enough to bring us more bread because he knew how long it had been) for an hour. And we were far from the only ones sitting around waiting for food. I don't know if the kitchen was understaffed or all the staff were spending their time bringing food and drink to the outside tables. But if there was a staff issue then the restaurant shouldn't have booked so many tables. You had much of the entire room without food for an extensive period of time.

The manager was supposed to come around to our table but only did so at the very end, after spending a good deal of time throughout the evening talking with two women at the table next to ours. Ultimately the restaurant took 20% off the bill but that was kind of the minimum.

Our waiter was great and did what he could (bringing a second round of drinks to the table after I got up and said the restaurant really needed to do something to provide an fast fix), but management did a really poor job.

My food was good (I had the trout), but my friends were so hungry that they didn't really get to enjoy it as much as they should/would have.

Marseilles was excellent all around - food and service were great, and the food came quickly. It's a perfect Brasserie, and great for pre-theater, or a nice night out.

Marseille has always been a favorite in the Theater District. The food is always exceptional. The ambiance is reminiscent of a French Bistro in Paris. The wait staff is always attentive, professional and friendly.

Marseille is a wonderful establishment that always delivers and never disappoints.

Everyone was very nice and friendly at Marseille but the food was disappointing. Duck overcooked and the cous cous was unseasoned and the vegetables were simply cooked in tomato sauce, very bland. Nice atmosphere but probably wouldn’t return because of the food.

This is a great restaurant but their AC was out on the night we went. I would definitely try it again, but was disappointed that the restaurant didn’t take more action in trying to make their guests and servers comfortable. (Set up some standing fans- get some hand fans for guests). However, the food and the service was great. I am sure their AC is fixed.

We had not been to Marseilles in many years. Pleasantly surprised to see it's still going strong, even through the pandemic. Excellent food, professional service, and very fairly priced for an NYC meal in current times. The fact that we enjoyed it so thoroughly even though the air conditioning wasnt working on a very hot summer evening was a testament to the staff. Woukd go back without hesitation any time we have a Broadway show date in midtown.

First of all, it was one of the hottest days of the year…no air conditioning! Who does this? I am sorry that we didn’t leave…the service was hit or miss…I have been to this place before and it was not like this….the food was good enough, but with no air conditioning or lack of attention…I was very disappointed. Be sure to check if the ac is in before you go…

I’ve been to Marseille regularly over the last few years. We often go for their bottomless brunch which is such a great deal. They offer a variety of different mimosas and they will always keep your drink topped up!I love their croque madame and my fiancé usually switches it up. We’ve loved the French onion soup, the burger, and for dessert we’re obsessed with the creme brûlée. Their service is prompt and polite. We’ll be coming back here for years to come!
