We've been coming here for years and it has always been consistently excellent. We've never had any problems. The menu is excellent- lots of choices and we've never had anything less than an excellent meal. The staff is friendly and prompt and the atmosphere is lively but not chaotic. Though the there is noise, you can hear your companions at the table without raising your voice. Prices are very fair, and if you go during restaurant week, you get a great three-course meal for a little over $40- pretty good in an expensive city like New York. It's convenient to the the theater district and not that bad a walk to Penn Station if you're commuting. Do make reservations- the place gets busy!

Was a little suspicious, given the proximity to Times Square, but was very pleasantly surprised. Terrific ambiance, and solid food throughout. Had the little neck clams (very fresh and well prepared), the escargot (best ever), a hot endive salad,and the branzino (and lamb shank), both of which were exceptional. Would highly recommend.

Food was ok. Steak were done medium when medium rare requested. Service was attentive but a bit disorganized. Quality atmosphere and good wine

Onion soup was excellent but a little pricey. I enjoyed my monkfish and my wife liked the taste of the branzino but it was not completely deboned.

I went for lunch during Restaurant Week for the first time although I've been to Marseille many other times over the years. I've always enjoyed the food but this lunch was not good. I don't know if, as the rumour goes for places participating in Restaurant Week, they put less effort into the food. But it certainly seemed that way. The tomato soup was fine but nothing special. The trout, however, was drenched in butter and sauce. I didn't finish because the trout and green beans were just saturated.

My friend did say the risotto was good and took it home.

Visited for a pre-theater dinner, so was watching the time closely. Service for the entire restaurant seemed slow and our waiter informed us there were problems with the stove. The waiter seemed to be watching out for us and our schedule. As usual (come here quite often) the food was delicious when it came. The restaurant offered complimentary dessert and after dinner drink which was appreciated, even if we couldn't linger over it. All in all, they handled their unfortunate problem very professionally.

As always we enjoyed our brunch at Marseille. The good is always wonderful. This time the server was not the best at the beginning but he did finally seem to warm to us. However we felt that we were an inconvenience to him. But the ambiance was great and we met some wonderful, fun fellow diners at tables around us. And the good was excellent.

My dinner was memorable and one of the best I've ever had. I had the special: Branzino on a fennel fume-like sauce. Branzino is one of my favorite fishes and I order it often but this was unlike any preparation I've ever had. My friend had moules frite--and continues to rave about them. I tasted the sauce. Delicious. Great dining experience in an area of the city better known for tourist twee.

We were very disappointed. Had been there before with better results. Portions were very small with barely anything on the plate. I could not find a beet on my Three Beet salad. I did not return it because we had a show there get to, but this should not have happened.

First time dining here and we all so enjoyed the experience. One in our party had been here before and recommended having lunch before a theatre matinee on a Saturday. Our reservation was honored right on time and the service was excellent. We had two teenagers with us and they devoured the hamburgers and french fries. In fact all our food was delicious. We definitely would return and hope to have dinner sometime also.

First visit of many before for brunch and all was terrific. Would always prefer some of your utestesual lunch or dinner entrees at brunch but to no avail i.e. mussels, steak fritte. Some in my party of 8 would have liked more selection.

I met a friend whom I hadn't seen in several months. The hostess seated us at a corner table, where we could talk easily. The trout and chicken were delicious -- and also the creme brulee! Very pleasant service.

Got there at 7:30 on a Friday evening. Crowded and noisy with the pre-theater crowd. It emptied out by eight o'clock. I was prepared to be underwhelmed. The butter & oil that came with the bread was fresh from the refrigerator and hard. The bread seemed old. The sale was underdressed, but was nicely served.
The entrees we ordered, duck breast for my wife, brook trout for myself were long in coming. However, when they arrived, they were perfect and delicious. Overall a very good meal.

We were five for dinner at 5 pm and had to leave by 6:40 Pm to make a nearby theater performance by 7 pm. We made it easily. Service was impeccable, courteous and very prompt. We had appetizers, dinner and coffee and not rushed at all.

The five of us had a variety of entrees as well as the excellent French Onion Soup and Octopus Salad. The entrees ordered included a lobster pasta, roast chicken. Long Island duck breast and trout almondine over French cut beans. Portions were ample to large, served hot and promptly. All entrees were in the $26 to $30 range, moderate for the heart of Manhattan’s Midtown Theater District. A must recommend restaurant!

The bread was hard and overdone. The steak au poivre barely had sauce. The vegetable couscous was dull. The staff was wonderful and the drinks were good but the detail was missing from a good French restaurant.
