Marseille offers the tastes of France right in the middle of New York's Theater District. A perfect place for your group to gather before or after your time at the theater.View Private Dining Details
We had an excellent experience. The food was delicious, the service complete but unobtrusive. All of this happened in a beautiful "bistro" room.
Better than usual food for more reasonable than usual price. Loud when full pre-theatre. Staff should be better: more polite, less aggressive, less inclined to interrupt.
Good to visit before theater; one caveat, high noise level
The staff was very helpful and courteous. My duck breast had great flavor, although was just slightly too tough. My girlfriend's trout was excellent - great flavor and very tender/moist. They did not have a very extensive beer selection, although they did have several very good options and some unique European beers not often found in the states. My girlfriend really loved the 'Lillet Spritz' cocktail she ordered.
Have eaten at Marseille several times. The food and service are great and the wine list wonderful.
Excellent meal. My steak was cooked perfectly. Great atmosphere. It was a little loud though.
The food was good but I came for lamb chops. I was very unhappy to see that the chop was fried like a chicken leg. They very nicely replaced it with steak frite. The steak was very good. Desserts were very good. Convenient for theater goers
Great experience! Our waiter was awesome!
We have been coming here for years, love this place for brunch. We went for my daughter’s 16th birthday brunch on this ocasion and Johnny our server took great care of us and provided excellent service. Food is fantastic as well.
Delicious sauces, fresh flavors, great wine list, beautiful presentation, and attentive and friendly staff--everything one could want in a high quality restaurant. Thank you for a lovely pre-theatre dinner.
We had a family group together for dinner before attending a Broadway show and chose Marseilles for location and especially because of outstanding reviews. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent, with many options for non-meat eaters. Our server was friendly, funny and at the same time very efficient. The decor is very attractive. We will come back
Always consistently good food. Waiter was extremely attentive and friendly. And a great choice if you have to go to the theater-- food comes out quickly.
Overall, it was a subpar dining experience. The service was decent and the staff was friendly. However the food was underwhelming. My son had the Hanger Steak and did not care for it. It was very chewy. My other son had the duck and it was prepared beautifully. However, the sides that accompanied it were bizarre. Sauerkraut? I started with the duck Pate and it was mediocre. Not horrible, but not great. I wanted the lamb chops until I heard they were deep fried. That did not appeal to me. I settled for the chicken, which was dry.
On a positive note, the bread, escargot, and apple tart were outstanding. Place definitely has potential, but disappointed in the entrees.
Tasty, well prepared French cuisine. Great, attentive service for a group of 10. We were very happy and highly recommend the food, ambience. It gets a bit noisy, however. We shall return!
We had dinner after theater tonight.
The service was outstanding.
I had an excellent Bellini to start.
The escargot was delicious! Very garlicky and buttery-perfect for dipping the crusty baguette that we were given.
We had a number of items on the menu, sharing a number of things. Portions were adequate. All were delicious! The bistro atmosphere was inviting and comfortable, reminiscent of being in Paris.
We always enjoy brunch at this great location before the theatre! Great service and selection.
Marsailles has become my go to place in the theater district. good food resonablly priced. The staff there are friendly and efficient
Excellent food and service.
Close to the theater and good food
Food was delicious. Our waiter Johnny M was most welcoming, attentive, congenial and anticipated all and every need and desire. We’ll return early and often!
Just always very good experience.
Noise level.a bit high,though
Excellent hamburger and steak frites. Wines delicious. Great service. Kale salad a little underwhelming, compared to the excellence of other dishes. Cookies at end were a lovely surprise.
Cute French brasserie - above average food, friendly wait staff and very easy for theatre goers. Roast chicken was excellent
This is our go-to pre- theatre restaurant. Food is always solid, love the decor and the location is very convenient. I recommend making a reservation as it is a popular pre- theatre restaurant.
Food and service were very good. The Salmon was excellent! Good place for pre theater dinner.
Pretheater dinner within an easy walk to Broadway theater...we had been here previously about 1 year ago. We remembered the French onion soup which was just as delicious as last time. Also ordered shrimp beignets which were similar to shrimp tempura and also good. The hanger steak steak was prepared well and very tender as well as the spinach. The lamb chops were prepared in an unusual way...breaded...friends would not order again. Their sides were good green beans and scalloped potatoes. It’s a pleasant restaurant for before or after the theater.
The food was edible, but nothing special. The food presentation was good. The temperature of the food was adequate. The service was exceptional. The serving staff was always attentive even with a crowded restaurant. They have a fairly large wine list available. My biggest complaint was the dishes. I initially ordered lamb chops, but changed my order when the server indicated that they would be deep fried. Why would you deep fry a lamb chop? I instead ordered the duck breast. This was served over a bed of potato and sauerkraut. Odd combination which I did not particularly like. I also found the restaurant to be a bit noisy. This is a small restaurant so I would recommend a reservation if you decide to visit. I would not recommend this for children.
We love Marseille for pre-theater meals. The food is great, good choices so everyone is happy, and the service is always friendly and professional. They strike just the right balance when they
know you are heading to theater, not rushed. but aware of curtain time.
This remains the very best place in the theatre district to eat. It never disappoints.
My friends and I enjoy having brunch at Marseille before the theatre. The restaurant is conveniently located. They have an extensive brunch menu. Our server was excellent. She checked to make sure we had what we needed but did not hover. We had a very enjoyable, leisurely brunch.
Really like the vibe at this place.
The food was good, good steaks. Very good dessert. Waiter was very good and attentive without overdoing it.
excellent food and service. The waiter was exceptional. will definitely return.
we came here for brunch before our matinee show at the Shubert which was right up the block. the ambience here is very French bistro and nice vibe. open and spacious and service was friendly and quick. food was delicious as well as the cocktail, though that might have been made to look prettier. otherwise it was fantastic.
Was really good food. Both servers were amazing and helpful. Very nice and chill atmosphere with fun people.
My friend and I went for his birthday, and had a wonderful time. Though he was badly delayed on the subway, I was not made to feel uncomfortable while I waited, and our waiter managed to get us out on time for our show without any fuss or rush. And the food--steak frites for both of us--was delicious!
Reliable and tasty as always. Great Thursday night wine bargain specials.
We both thoroughly enjoyed the trout as our entrees. It was perfectly prepared and the spinach and capers blended very well. Also enjoyed the mushroom tart as a starter. We also enjoyed a pre-dinner drink at the bar. They have a lovely bar where you can also eat if you wish.
Fabulous pre theater eatery with great menu choices and wonderful service!!
The service was quick and attentive. Our server asked if we were going to see a 7pm show and made sure we had a well paced meal that left us enough time to get to the theater on time. Our server was very warm and engaging.
