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!

We have eaten at The Marc several times and enjoy the cooking and the professional service. The menu is short but of high quality. We were disappointed that there were no dessert options for lactose intolerant diners.

Our experience was top notch starting with the owner opening the door to let us in and greeting us. The wait staff was sooo pleasant and the food divine. The pairing of the lemon tart with the moscato was absolutely divine.

Everyone at our table really enjoyed the food however we all found it very pricey. The service was very good. Excellent waitress!!
$19 for a glass of wine seems pretty steep. The Pintade with mushrooms and potatoes/parsnips was so delicious!!!!! I had a glass of wine, Pintade, coffee & Baileys and a lemon tart which totalled $69. By the time I added a 20% tip (well deserved),
My bill was $82 which I found very expensive. My friends all said the same thing.

I've been to The Marc a few times, and the food has always been outstanding. I love how the mains come with creative sides such as cannellini bean puree, Israeli Couscous, etc. It's great to have a break from the potatoes and seasonal veggies combo you find everywhere. Everything is very well executed and presented, it's really a treat for me. The ambiance is also quite nice.

Service has also been good in general. Attentive, polite (most of the time), and fast. My one complaint is that in my last visit our server did something I find EXTREMELY rude: brought the check to the table without a request from us. I actually wanted an espresso after my dinner and he didn't even ask if we needed anything else before bringing the check. I still consider this a high quality restaurant and I'd recommend it for quick dinners. But I'd stay away when looking to enjoy company in a special occasion, as I definitely felt pushed out.

You can order anything at the Marc and be sure it will be some of the best food you've ever eaten. Whether you order off the menu, or from their multiple specials, it's always consistently amazing. On my recent visit, between three of us, we ordered: Appetizers: arugula salad, Caesar salad; Main course: duck breast, entrecote frites (steak), and a fish special. Everything was melt in your mouth amazing, tender, juicy. Even the frites (fries) were the best fries ever!! We also had dessert, including the chocolate mousse which was not super sweet like you might expect, but such a wonderful texture and pure chocolate flavour.
The service is always so great and friendly as well. It's not a cheap place to dine, but great for special occasions. I've been to many of the great fine dining restaurants in the city, and can definitely say the Marc is my favourite restaurant in Edmonton.

The Marc is our favourite place for a special night with friends and family. The food is always excellent, we have never been disappointed. The wine list is terrific - ask Patrick for a recommendation. Service is top notch - professional, well timed, helpful, courteous. Doris and Patrick are wonderful hosts who make everyone feel welcome. Great value and great place for an evening dining experience.

For me, there is a certain amount of guilt when you haven't been back to a restaurant in a while. I should not have been apprehensive. Patrick and Doris welcomed our group with warmth and grace. Our server Louanne was deft and efficient, and also equally knowledgeable about the food and wine list. Nothing disappointed. The room hummed with diners who were excited to be there, enjoying the fine meals prepared by the skilled staff in the kitchen. Great evening - will be back - and recommend The Marc without hesitation.
