Food is exceptional - I've been coming here for pre-theater dinner for decades; the bouillabaisse is my favorite. It disappeared from the menu for a while, but I am delighted that it's back. Food is always delicious, and they always get you out on time for your show.

Post Broadway dinner. Starters were good but the mains were just okay, my bowl of pasta was small enough to be an appetizer.

Have been going to Marseille for a while now, even during the pandemic and seating outdoors in the winter. However just a little disappointed this time with the latest menu, price and portion size. I get that it's probably due to post Covid business conditions, but I hope it doesn't stay that way.

It was my first time to the Marseilles and it will not be my last. I had the Escargots and the Petite Bouillabaisse and they were prepared perfectly. Wife had the Branzino and my friend had the Moules and they too very much enjoyed their meals. The portion sizes I thought were quite good. We very much enjoyed our desserts too; three scoops of Ice Cream and the Brulee. Service VERY attentive and I believe our service person had a rather pleasant French accent. Noise level was not a problem. I thought the atmosphere was well done. If you are looking for a restaurant with a French flair, I would recommend the Marseilles.

I have been to Marseille many times and was surprised by the decline in the quality of the food . They were short on staff which is often true these days. I felt the staff made an effort. The portions were small. I thought the quality of ingredients had fallen. The request was for a rare hamburger and it was well done and everything was cold.

Marseille is our go-to place for weekend brunch. Menu choices are excellent. The restaurant is decorated tastefully and the staff is thorough, knowledgeable and engaging. We took friends there for the first time this weekend and they left saying it wouldn't be the last time they were back.

Got the NY strip. Very disappointing as it was the most expensive menu item but was very gristly. Every bite I took was overly fatty and chewy.

Thanksgiving. Restaurant was overcrowded at 6PM but understandable given the day. Little things mean a lot. Interior design colorful, reminiscent of French style but not overdone nor intrusive. Background music a little too loud, softened when requested. The menu itself is designed to fit the general "French" ambiance of the restaurant, easy to read and itself looks tasty. Full service bar at the north or left end as you enter with stools and small tables opposite. Full dining tables both inside and outside are well dressed, usually comfortably separated but today was busy. Table was ready at arrival time and at the requested position on the floor. For small parties of two, three or four the banquettes are best. Wait Staff friendly, there when needed, have excellent knowledge of kitchen. Additional Floor Staff always available and promptly get you what you need. Kitchen quite good. Oysters small but fresh and delicious. Food could have been a little hotter when served but I feel certain that if you made note of it Staff would return plate to the kitchen for heating up or to change the order. Two occasions when food served was not the food ordered: onion soup was not gratinee, one desert was not the one ordered. When ordering the Wait Staff Did not affect overall excellence. Wine list is extensive, if you do not see the specific wine you desire there are excellent alternatives that will compliment and augment the food. Cocktails are fresh and well mixed, Cellar Staff knowledgeable of the wines and excellent at table service. All various staff, even though hurried this day, will stay with you until you and they completely understand what you want to order, how you want it presented and when served. Management extend themselves to welcome you when you arrive and to thank you warmly upon leaving.

The petite bouillabaisse was excellent. The mushroom goat cheese tart was well presented but had no special taste. the vegetarian couscous was dry.
The turkey was very good. The duck was very good as well as the rack of lamb. I do not like olives so I couldn't enjoy the rice-olive which came with it but that was my personel choice
We enjoyed our Thanksgiving. The atmosphere was excellent.

Great food. Enjoyed our family Thanksgiving dinner here. Took them an extremely long amount of time to serve our food. Was there close to 3 hours. Saw others come and go quickly. Overall, we enjoyed everything, even with the slow service.

Our steak was well done when asked for medium rare. The escargot were delicious as well as the French onion soup. The turkey dinner was not great. The salmon was good.

Be very careful with OpenTable. When I booked this reservation I was given one price. I was contacted by the restaurant and informed that they gave me the previous year's price and it was over 30% higher. The food and service was great. My wife and i feel we were mislead.

One of our favorite places. But bad night. Felt rushed , food came out out of order and when we complained, they stopped everything including the water. Manager kept circling our table, making it feel weird and the food, below usual standard.

Happy hour was extremely disappointing and misleading. The food was served cold and late after repeatedly telling the waiter we had a show. This would’ve been somewhat tolerable if the place was packed but the place was empty. There were only 2 other tables occupied in the entire restaurant. We’ll never waste money here ever again.

Lovely ambience, high ceiling, pretty archways. Great location. But, limited Sunday menu from 3:30pm.till 5pm

A busboy crowded our table by placing our salad rather haphazardly near the table’s edge. A tray of oysters was already there, leaving not much room for anything else. Once it was finished, we kept looking for anybody’s attention to remove the tray so we could eat the salad more easily. We didn’t see our waitress for awhile. Kept trying to find her or anyone for water refills, also. Once our waitress came back, she was very attentive.

We sat outside, which was comfortable, although the seats were too close to each other. My friend’s order was not done correctly and she sent it back. It took them 1/2 hour to get it back to her. The service definitely not good. Otherwise, I would be happy to give them another try.
