As always, excellent service, excellent food! The Beignets are a must for dessert. I would happily go to the Marc for a White Chocolate cocktail and a plate of Beignets with Caramel sauce. Yum.

Excellent service, very personal staff, food was fantastic, and the ambiance was very cozy, yet spacious enough that we were not cramped at all.

I got the pork shank, which was exquisite. Much much more than I expected. You could blow on the meat and it would slide off the bone.

My date got the Cornish hen, and she loved it as well!

We both paired wine with our orders, and everything was very reasonable.

Shared the Beignets with my date and they were hot and fresh, with a caramel sauce that was absolutely decadent.

Definitely coming back. From a date perspective, this is the place where you take someone you plan to commit to. It certainly worked out very well for me!

Our meals were both excellent. Service was prompt- maybe a little too prompt. Being senior people, we tend to order only a main course- just can't eat a starter and an entree. It did feel like our entrees arrived very quickly, and perhaps they were anxious for us to vacate the table. The food was excellent, service very good- just a little too quick for a special birthday dinner.

Great experience, our server was great! Sorry forgot her name, but she is a young brunette woman with glasses. She and our hostess always ensured we were well taken care of and had everything we needed. And we arrived at 7:40 a few minutes early and the table was all prepared and ready for us. Loved it!

We really enjoyed our food and the presentation of it but our waiter was absent most of the time enough that we had 2 other waitresses taking care of things he should have like clearing our plates, asking if everything was ok and bring us the bill. The waiter was very concerned of my husbands drinks and asking he if he wanted more wine as my cocktail glass sat empty on our table until I had to ask that it be cleared and ask myself if I could have another. Then dessert was served with my husbands coffee and I again had an empty glass and it was my husband that asked me if I would like a coffee or anything. This was a very strange experience as it seemed like there was only one of us at the table in the waiters eyes. It was our anniversary and I felt like a second class citizen during most of the experience.
The food was amazing but I doubt I will return due to service. Perhaps my husband will return on his own as he had a better experience.

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!
