We are living in London and have 5-week stay in Edmonton, The Marc was our perfect ending/ last dinner during our stay. Have been to Paris several times, tried quite a few local bistro in Paris and France, The Marc's signature dish "steak & fries" is on top of our steak experience. Perfect medium rare rib-eye, great quality in terms of food and customer service, freshly made donut would be a must too, LOVELY dining experience!!

Anniversary. Great service and food. Escargot on bone au jus was unexpected surprise hit. Beef and char plates always a guaranteed success.

I hadn't been back to The Marc for sometime and my dinner left me wondering why I had waited so long to come back. We were seated outside on the patio which is nicely shaded so even on a hot day it was comfortable. Food was excellent, the char was prepared very well and waiters were extremely polite and knowledgable of the menu.

Ask for Lu as a server. With Patrick at the helm you know you are going to get a great meal with great service but with Lu it goes to exceptional service. She is attentive without being obtrusive, knows her specials and even better knows which items on the wine list pair perfectly with the meal you are having. Count on me and my wife going back again and again and again!

Since we had a reservation, seating was very quick. The hostess was very pleasant and our server was friendly. The duck and chicken were both cooked perfectly and were very tasty. Our server checked in with us enough periodically through the meal. Next time I wish that they would ask us where we would like to sit as 50% of the restaurant was empty (including the patio) and they sat us right next to the noisy kitchen. Overall, great place for a date night.

We enjoyed our anniversary dinner at The Marc very much. The food was good and the service excellent. We recommend this restaurant highly. The only downside is the limited on-street parking. If you have more than one car, bring the smaller one!

The Marc is one of my favourite restaurant - lunch or dinner, a drink at the.bar - it never fails! We went for a “birthday” dinner with my son and his girlfriend - first time for them at The Marc - and it didn’t disappoint. From the olives and frites as starters to the lamb and duck confit to the deserts ... deliciously tasting! The restaurant presents an atmosphere that is inviting and inclusive of everybody with staff that you will enjoy to engage with!!

We arrived to our 15th anniversary dinner and were immediately brought two glasses of Prosecco when we sat down. Our server, Lou, made excellent wine and entree recommendations. It was a wonderful way to spent an evening as a couple!

One of Edmonton's most consistently delicious, refined dining venues, The Marc hit it out of the park once again. Food expertly prepared that is also appealing to the eyes and taste buds. As good as the food is, the charming, tasteful service comes close to eclipsing it. Here we found consistently reliable, deep knowledge of the menu, ingredients and appropriate beverage pairings. Love this place~

We loved our dinner at The Marc. The food is so good and the overall atmosphere is very comfortable and cozy, but still elegant and high-end. We started with the fish croquettes, then each had the steak frites, followed by beignets for dessert. Would recommend each dish!

I rarely write reviews but essentially always do for the Marc. This was for a 48th wedding anniversary celebration and we truly celebrated, aided not insignificantly by Jenny, our server. We were so glad to reconnect with her.

The pate appetizer, arctic char, Cornish hen, lemon tarte and creme brulee were relished bite by bite, and the chardonnay from Burgundy, sip by sip.

Thank you again to the Marc.

Very good experience. Service was fantastic and the food the very tasty. Surprised that French fries, however good, were served with a ribeye rather than fresh veg. Or at least the option.

It was good, but the menu choices are lacking a bit for those with allergies/sensitivities. I understand they will leave off certain items (for instance cheese) if asked.
The ambience on the patio was very quaint and cozy. It was refreshing to be able to enjoy an outdoor meal.

Very friendly staff. Was greeted at the door and seated on the outdoor veranda (shaded). Food was excellent. Only suggestion on improvement is to have the daily specials printed. There were 4 or 5 and it wad difficult to recall when ordering.
