Greeting, seating and first look at menu was a great start. Beer list was very good, no Merlot choices for wine.
Food menu had a somewhat limited selection but what we ordered was prepared very well.
All the staff were friendly and diligent. Highly recommend!

Absolutely amazing experience. The owners are on the floor serving. They are so welcoming. The food has so much flavour. The owner even put my wife’s coat on.
I have no reason to eat at a different restaurant

Our group has chosen The Marc as our restaurant of choice to celebrate birthdays and other occasions. We have never been disappointed. The food and service is second to none. The servers have been consistent over the past couple of years we have been going and always very pleasant and professional. We will be back!

The food was excellent, the server fabulous. Visually and aurally quiet (our table being the exception). The restaurant doesn't feel "cutting edge" but rather classic and very well done.

Exceptional food. Has the lb and the guinea fowl. Steak tartare to start and always perfect.
Only complaint is how close the tables are, when seated you can clearly hear your neighbors conversations

They never seem to miss a beat or step wrong at The Marc. Warm welcome - check. Efficient and charming server - check. Delicious food, well presented - check. In and out in under an hour - check. Will happily return to The Marc - such a great spot!

Been going to the Marc for years. Have yet to have a bad meal. This time we tried the foie gras and crab phyllo appetizer. The foie gras was amazing, it melted in your mouth. The crab phyllo was like a spring roll filled with crab meat. For our mains we had the steak of course - excellent and done as requested. I had the chieken breast special - a little disappointing, the chicken was quite salty and the greens kind of wilted under the chicken. For dessert we shared the beignets.

Definitely one of our favourite restaurants in the city. French/European inspired cuisine, consistently high quality, good service, good selection of wine/cocktails. Whether you’re looking for a nice place to take a date or quick business lunch,you can’t go wrong with The Marc. Great food, great ambiance (bright, modern, good energy), great service. Highly recommend.

 (Edmonton)·Dined on January 2, 2018

We went to the Marc for an anniversary dinner. The food was exceptional and the wait staff were friendly and relatively efficient. However, the Marc bills itself as a fine dining, special occasion restaurant and the service failed on several counts to raise itself to that level. For example, despite there being five free tables in a row in a half empty restaurant, we and two other couples on dates were seated together in three consecutive tables instead of spaced with empty tables intervening. We know that the other couples were on dates because we could hear every aspect of their conversation, despite each couple trying to speak softly and give one another privacy. I was seated closer to the person next to me than I was to my wife across the table. This made the experience awkward and really detracted from our night. We would go back to the Marc but would be more assertive about our seating to allow for some intimacy in our dining experience.

Always a good option when dining out with friends - the food is always top notch, the service is impeccable. The arctic char is done differently each time and always great. There is no loud music to get in the way of a good conversation.

We have been to the Marc before and enjoyed our dining experience. On this night, we wanted to visit with friends while enjoying a delicious meal. We could actually hear each other, which we can't in many restaurants nowadays and we were not disappointed in the food or the service.

Definitely high on our list.

Food was great (with the exception of the bread basket; the Marc can/should do better) and seasoned well. Service was a bit slow and not always consistent (and we had to ask for our bread basket), but overall the food was really great and we’ll go back.

We had such a great time at The Marc! My husband and I went with two of our friends to eat before heading to Rogers Place for a concert and everything was amazing! Our server read the table perfectly and was funny and joking around with us and also had amazing suggestions for food and drink. The restaurant was busy and lively... just the way we like it, we laughed and ate great food the entire time!
