We LOVE dining at Marseille!! Loved the 20 Blue Point oysters we had during their happy hour 3:30-6:30pm. We loved our server Kristen, and Prince the manager; both of them so nice and personable. The warm bread with the French butter and delicious olive oil was heavenly. The service was excellent and we felt very COVID safe at our outdoor table. I very highly recommend Marseille for not only the scrumptious food and drinks, the lovely staff, but also for their outreach and generosity to the community.
We felt like we were in Provence!💜

I showed up 10 minutes past my reservation time, but they have a 15-minute grace period. They didn't help me in the 10 minutes that I stood waiting for someone to seat me. They then rushed me and said that they were closing soon. If you're closing soon, then don't have a reservation time right when you're about to close-and if so, then don't rush the people who reserve at the end of the night.

Great food, service and ambience.
Music in the restaurant, however, was off putting and didn’t match the ambience.
Classical or jazz standards would be more fitting.

Lovely outdoor dining evening... Great cocktails and wine. Dinner selections good, certainly a bit reduced from pre-Covid menu. Totally understand. While food remains very good, the escargot could have used more garlic and butter (not as much olive oil). The grilled garlic was good; probably should have added a bit more salt. Great desert and coffee... Thanks for a nice evening...

Nice outdoor dining experience, tables spaced sufficiently with plexi barriers in between so it feels very private. Escargot and bone marrow were super tasty apps, steak frites for din, and delicious pinot blanc all reasonably priced. I would go back to dine inside or out!

Amazing first dining experience at Marseille since the onset of COVID-19. Tables were proper distance apart with shields between tables. The decor/ambiance was not affected by the added safety protocols. Food was great and server was great. Great option to book in these unprecedented times.

We had THE most lovely time at Marseille! The staff was so kind and happy with us, and the food and drinks were sublime (am still remembering the duck ~ so delicious!). This dinner was especially precious to us: I had made reservations originally for 6PM and then we were all to go see COMPANY~Broadway (our friends/business associates from Texas flew in the day before to see Broadway shows, and saw the news about Broadway closing down an hour before they landed!). I modified our Marseille time to 7:30PM, so we went to Birdland's 5:30PM show and then came to Marseille!). THANK YOU, MARSEILLE! Our pals had such a lovely time and they felt pampered and cared for, and it really made the whole weekend brighter! On Saturday, our pals talked again about how marvelous Marseille was and the food there, and it made the whole weekend easier for me because they went back to Texas sooooo happy!

It was wonderful to support Marseille at this difficult time when so many restaurants and businesses are struggling. The food was delicious, as I’ve always found there, and we couldn’t have been welcomed more warmly by the host and our server.

Marseille provides a lovely, peaceful respite from Manhattan hubbub. Service is attentive and friendly, without being overbearing. Wine is reasonably priced and of good quality. Pate and cauliflower appetizers were delicious, as were all our entrees and desserts. An excellent neighborhood find!

I keep on returning to Marseilles because everything there shows they care. When you arrive. They’re happy to see you. Your reservation is ready.
Tour wait staff looks at you and asks what would you like to have while you’re waiting for the rest of your party.
The foodis carefully prepared though I personally would like more bread!

Charming and reliable bistro in the theater district. Good food comes out hot, tasty, with enough time for that final espresso. It’s noisy, but you’re in the theater district.
