We ordered chick

We were at the Marc to celebrate a birthday, and for a pre-show dinner since we were attending a play a block away. It took us awhile to be seated and have our orders taken, so despite our reservation we were quite rushed and could not finish dinner or have coffee or desert. They brought our birthday boy’s cake as we were running out the door to make the show. So, overall good food but poor service at a restaurant within the theatre district when the waitress was aware of our show start time.

The Marq is always so great! Service was a bit slow but I imagine it was because it was a nice day out in Chicago. My hamburger unfortunately was a bit salty. Appetizer was good which was the chicken and bacon bits with a great dip! Great ambience and they did apologize for the delay. Try their whipped ricotta!

Chicken sandwich looked great. I had Greek salad with salmon. It’s expensive and the salmon was not charred enough. Salad has kale and needs to be chopped smaller.

This was a last minute restaurant selection for us in the Loop, where we live, but have not yet thoroughly explored. The 3 of us were able to meet our very different meal preferences - for me the salmon entree was appealing, and good, but not something to die over. The green goddess side salad was very good. My husband chose an appetizer, FRENCH CHICKEN WONTONS, & PAPAS A LA DIABLA side dish, and loved both! My son went with the scallops entree and said it was very good but not outstanding. Service was very good. So, overall I gave The Marq 4 stars. The 3 of us shared the cheesecake, which was large enough to share. It was very good, but not to die for. Wines are pretty pricey. My husband and I had the cheapest red wine, which was the malbec, at $10/glass.

I met a friend for lunch here - neither of us had been there before. We both ordered the salmon cake sandwich, which was good. Service was fine. There was nothing outstanding about the experience, but there was nothing to complain about either. I would dine there again.

It was good, but we weren’t wowed. Enjoyed the ambiance of the nicely decorated scene in a beautiful part of town. Service was pretty good, food was tasty but while it was perfectly satisfactory overall, we weren’t wowed.

Visited the Marq for a friend's birthday. At the time of the reservation through OpenTable, I mentioned that. Our waitress brought us a nice sized piece of Turtle Cheesecake with a candle and three forks which was nice enough but then we weren't charged for it! Everything was great but the service was outstanding.

We got there a little before our reservation and snagged an outdoor table on one of the first warm, sunny days in Chicago. Yay! Service was excellent. My salad was ok, not special, the grilled salmon on it was delicious. However my guests “Greek” salad was very, very sparse on any ingredient except lettuce and onions.

This is an excellent bang for your buck. It seems like the after work crowd frequents here so it may get busy around 5:30 - 6:30, but if you have reservations it should be fine. 10/10 would come again!

The steak on the salad was not cooked medium well as ordered. Also the “steak knives” given to cut steak are less than adequate. It’s a major arm work out to cut the steak.
