Frisée salad was crisp with the green, the blue cheese and the nuts all in sync. Memorable.
Roast chicken was excellent. Others in party had great pleasure in their dishes as well.
But the hero of the evening was the great burgundy at a very fair price. I will return to Marseille to do more treasure hunting on the wine list

Reading the other reviews and looking at the photos, we expected so much more.

The food was cooked well but lacked seasoning and taste. Service was poor. We sat down and waited for even a menu and then ordered our apps, finished our apps and hadn’t even been asked for our main course order yet. Had to ask someone else to find our waiter. Overall very disappointing. Pricey, bland and forgotten about was how we felt when leaving. Also, the restaurant was quiet at the time, it was early and there were only a few other patrons there at that time.

This place is fantastic and rather underrated - ate here twice in the last week and the food was flavorful, beautifully prepared and consistent.

Also - it’s very rare that a Prix Fixe on Valentine’s Day is as good as the place is usually - Marseille is an exception. Even with the high volume of turnover - the food was impeccable.

Such a great experience! A Hell’s Kitchen Gem!

Generous helping of filet mignon ... sommelier's wine selection was tasty and a good value ... had to send the soup back ... was not hot ... but replacement (lobster bisque) seemed to lack flavor ... was sweet that couple of truffle candies were given as comp treat

I was there once ten years ago. I don’t come to the city often anymore. It was a great, pre- concert dinner.

Great food. Great service. Busy and packed... that said, it was Valentine’s Day and they did not push us out. Very nice service. Sommelier took my cues and did not push too expensive of a wine.

Marseille has a lovely decor. The food is very good. The menu changes periodically, so you get to try new things. The service is very good. We went after theatre this time, so it was quiet.

Salad and main course (Salmon) was very good. The desert was very good. The glass of Chardonnay was good but high priced. I would prefer to see more white wines offered by the glass, including New Zeland Sauvignon Blancs.

The espresso was garbage - bitter even with 3 sugar packets in a double. Check out a double at Starbucks - it's not the world's best, but see the lower volume, and taste the flavor and smoothness and full body.

Marseille is consistently good. It has a large, complete selection of French classic dishes: steak tartar, escargot, modules frites, classic salads, all prepared simply and elegantly.

Nice ambiance, in a spacious locale. Large picture windows let the 9th Avenue bustle into Marseille (sometimes flashing lights and sirens are a bit too much).
The service is very attentive and polite. The food arrives on time, the drinks menu is extensive, there is a good variety of wine by-the-glass. Even a larger group, in our case, 7 people we all enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Most of the people in the group were already familiar with Marseille. We all extended a vote of confidence to this venue, for its consistency and good vibes.

Marseille is an excellent choice for brunch in Hell's Kitchen. Delicious brioche French toast and a perfect cafe au lait served in a bowl.

Very good French cuisine. Escargots were well above average. A bit noisy, unfortunately, but the food makes it worthwhile. Service was very good, as well. We said we had theater tickets, and they made sure we were out on time.

Loved introducing my friend to Marseille especially during Restaurant Week! We had lunch - we both had the trout with almonds and salads as appetizers. I got the cookie plate for dessert - which we shared. She loved the whole experience; I was delighted as always!

Had early dinner before theater. Squash ravioli and the fried cauliflower were very good appetizers as both had excellent sauces to go with them. Likewise the monkfish entree and duck confit leg were with layers of flavors and very complimentary vegetables/side dishes. Good selection of wInes by the glass. A definite must for the theater district as right on the corner of 44th and 9th avenue.

We waited 15 minutes beyond our reservation time for a table. Took 12 minutes after that for a server to even bring menus.
Salad starter was overloaded with dressing.
Entrees - 2 hanger steaks and the monkfish - were very good.
Desserts were delicious.

We visited Marseille for brunch on the weekend. The menu is varied and with some unique items like "Pain Perdue" which was a wonderful French toast in a mushroom sauce with two eggs. We also had the limitless Mimosas for $19 each over a period of 90 minutes. They filled our glasses without asking and did not dilute the champagne with juice which is often the case with such drink offerings. The staff worked as a team and were pleasant and attentive. We would definitely recommend Marseille and will return ourselves!

Lovely Restaurant Week dinner. They had menu on Saturday evening. Food was excellent. Don't think the prices were significantly lower, but still a bit lower.

Will certainly go back for rissoto with truffle foam and duck confirm.
Really wonderful staff.

Marseille is consistently reliable. The food is always expertly prepared and the service is elegant. The hosts and hostesses always check on diners to see if everything is to their satisfaction.
They get you to the theatre on time. Our go-to place in the theatre district.
