    Crowd pleasing menu with pretty average execution. Charcuterie was basic with cold cuts, chunks of simple bleu cheese and brie, and tiny mounds of Craisins and walnuts. Mango pineapple salsa had strange flavor, like too much citric acid used as a preservative, and the carnitas tacos were dry. Our server was hustling and very attentive. Can’t say a critical think about the staff, and the location is great for before the theater or if you happen to be in the middle of the loop on a weekend.

    We really liked the food and service at The Marq except the blandness of the back half of the resturant (which is where we sat). It was cafateria-like, whereas the front had a warmer feel and was just more nice-resturant-looking. One other thing that did bother me, it was my daughter's birthday and they brought her ice cream with a cookie. All very nice ... but .... they charged me for it. I can't recall the last time a resturant charged for a small dessert on a birthday, especially after the two of us had appetizers, dinners and 6 drinks. Just pretty cheap. Oh well.

    We had a family gathering here. Some came into the city from the burbs, and we are here from Phoenix. I needed to make a reservation for 12, the Marq was the only option. Everyone was in agreement! Food was good, service was perfect, and the vibe was modern ,fun ,and energetic.

    Great location for going to CBIT. Spacious room with friendly staff. Only 2 things: 1) if order mezzo app ask for extra pita upfront. Order only comes with insufficient # of pita chips (~6-7) total for various dips. Dips were good, but sat while we waited for chips to be able to enjoy the rest. We had to ask twice. 2) They forgot bday candle for dessert after I indicated it was my brother’s bday via reservation, via phone when they called to confirm, and when I reminded again upon arrival. Otherwise food and drinks were good.

    This is a solid lunch spot for Loop professionals. The vibe is energetic and the menu has a variety wide enough for most groups. I have gone with my office and I have taken my parents there when they've come to town. The hot sauce is especially good--hot and flavorful. It does get loud, though, so don't expect to hear a person four people down the table from you.

    Generally a decent experience—cocktails were well made, and the guac and mango salsa were really good, but my entree left a bit to be desired. I ordered the falafel sandwich with Tzaziki, tabouli (bulgar, parsley, mint, red onion, cucumber, tomato, lemon juice, and olive oil), and herb salad, and received a dry pita with a thin spread of Tzaziki and a sprinkle of minced cucumbers and diced tomatoes. I actually called the waiter over to tell him they left the tabouli and herbs off of my sandwich by accident, and he tried to convince me it was there under the (nonexistent) onions. I shrugged and ate it anyway because we had a show to get to—the falafel itself was actually really good—but the sandwich was beyond underwhelming, and it was really off-putting to order one thing and receive something totally different.

    Really good for for bfast, lunch or dinner. They won me over during the height of the Pandemic as one of the few that stuck it out. in fact, they had a sign there during the darkest days that said: "Last Restaurant Standing". The menu is a well orchestrated mix of selections - from one of the best most delicious double cheeseburgers in town to scrumptious and satisfying salads [add the falafel!!]. I applause their resilience during those terrible months and herald their cuisine!!!

    I love the Marq! A staple spot in the loop, and I’m so glad they made it through Covid. Their food is delicious with nice sized portions, and reasonably priced. Servers are friendly and attentive. Looks like a good place to watch a game too with plenty of TVs. Can’t wait to try their happy hour after work in the future!

    Definitely would recommend! My friends and I were going to a show at the Cadillac Palace and booked a reservation here because it was a 12 minute walk and the menu looked good and reasonably priced. Three of us got the falafel sandwich and one of us got sliders. Overall we really enjoyed it! The food also came out impressively quickly.

    Excellent restaurant - it was super, dimly lit with holiday lights on trees outside casting a pretty glow. The service was fast and efficient and I like that they have Falafel as an option since I’m a vegetarian and it can be hard to find good options.

    We had a large party with mostly kids, and by the time we sat down, we had forty-five minutes to order and eat. We explained our situation to our server who could not have been more understanding and successful in getting us our orders quickly and correctly. We paid when the food arrived, ate, and were out of there in time to get to our show. We will definitely go back . . . with more time to enjoy it all next time!
