I was a big fan of Il Portico and was sorry to see it close (to become a parking lot, which never happened, sigh.) However, I love the Marc. From the moment you walk in to the moment you walk out, a great experience with fine food and wonderful people.

The Marc was on the higher-rated end of Edmonton restaurants so my wife and I decided to give it a try for date night. The restaurant is located at the bottom of a small office building, and that's exactly how the ambience felt. The inside of the restaurant was underwhelming.

Our server was personable and had the right timing for everything; not over-present but enough care and check-ins to score a 5/5 in that department.

The food was good, but in the realm of French cuisine, again we found it to be underwhelming. Having had similar items in other restaurants, we both felt the dishes left a little to be desired in the seasoning department. I had the ribeye with foie gras butter, which was delicious. The steak was great quality and cooked perfectly.

After receiving the bill at the end, neither of us felt like there was good value. The dress code was also a little too casual, but then again, it's Edmonton.

Overall, it was good, but not great. The restaurant failed to leave an impression a la Tzin, and with so many other places to try, we will not be going to the Marc again.

Perfect for an hour lunch. My colleagues and I treat ourselves on Friday and are back to the office on time. Definitely recommend making reservations. The food is excellent, service wonderful. I find the price for lunch comparable to other places nearby, yet you receive the find dining experience that you wouldn't get from other places.

We came here for a family dinner and our already-high standards were exceeded. We have dined here previously and came back expecting another amazing experience and we weren't disappointed. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was phenomenal. We had one celiac diner with us and they accommodated her needs and brought out gluten-free food. Two other diners have substitutions based on preference and the staff were happy to make recommendations. The best part of this restaurant is the value - the taste and quality of the food were much higher than the price would have indicated. We'll be back again soon!

Short Continental-influenced menu, and their aim seems to be to make a few dishes exceptionally well. We had martinis and appetizers, followed by the lamb, the pork chops, and the char. Service was attentive but unobtrusive, and thoroughly professional. Decent if short wine list, and not too terribly expensive. The Marc now seems to be one of the best restaurants in Edmonton, enough so to justify a special trip. I was pleasantly surprised-- strongly recommend this place.

Appetizers and atmosphere were quite nice. Main course steak wasn't particularly impressive, Frites weren't even hand cut, below caliber for the price. Guinea fowl was nice. Wonderful server, Overall would recommend.

Restaurant was quite noisy. Hard to hear the server.

The soup was fantastic, however three of our main courses were served not hot. The butter on two of the steaks, while cooked perfectly, were barely melting. The pork chop could have been hotter. The restaurant was very busy and I can only assume the entrees waited to be served at our table.

I came here with a coworker for lunch during downtown week. The restaurant itself was surprisingly bright and open on the inside. I would describe the ambiance as a bit cold and loud. Maybe it's different for dinner. We were served bread immediately by a server who was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The food came out very quickly, so definitely a good option for a one hour lunch break. The special was house made garlic sausage with a potato pancake and Savoy cabbage, with a Breton cake with apricot coulis for dessert for $18. They have a long wine list and a few cocktails to choose from. I didn't look at the wine prices, but the cocktails were about $12 for 2oz. Amazing food. Great service. Highly recommend. Will definitely be back for lunch and would love to try it out for dinner.

Choose the MARC for creative menu and attentive service for a special evening with my wife. As usual, we were more than satisfied - decided to eat at the bar where Leo's service was excellent. Can't go wrong as the menu has regular items but always with a special touch.
