    Celebrated my husbands birthday and Marcel did not disappoint! The bread was awesome, and the sweet shrimp scampi was so flavorful. My husband got the fillet and i ordered the lobster risotto and we were both pleased with the fullness of the flavors. Topped it off with the crème brûlée. Didn’t have a bad bite of anything. Our servers (they work in teams of 2 and i can’t remember their names) but they were AWESOME! Would highly recommend.

    Went here for our anniversary dinner and it was amazing! Everyone was so friendly. We were served by Darrell and Jordan, and they were very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The escargots were incredible, as well as the filet and the lobster risotto. We would absolutely eat here again.

    Our whole experience was simply excellent!! The food was fantastic as were the cocktails and wine. The bone in filet was perfectly cooked. Le chaude Marcel was some of the best seafood we’ve had here in ATL. The salad Marcel may be my favorite salad ever. And the 12 layer chocolate cake was just the right without being painfully sweet. We paired it with their house made ice cream which was just amazing. The service was impeccable, particularly Laura Leigh and Michael, but really pretty much everyone we came in contact with in the dining room was great. (Interestingly, the hostess was the least impressive of the staff as she was bothered and annoyed to seat us but we’ll just chalk it up to maybe she was not having the best day.)

    The best place in Atlanta for food and ambiance. We come a couple times a year, because though we try other top rated restaurants this one consistently out performs everyone. From quality of food, to outstanding service, to small touches of character - highly recommend this fine dining experience!

    This is the best fine dining restaurant! This is our go to for Beef Wellington and we have the absolute best time, every time. We have been twice and will continue to go as often as possible. It is the best food we have ever had. Both times, Jimmy was amazing! The timing, kindness, helpfulness, and all around experience is top notch. We look forward to it always!

    To say my family appreciates Ford Fry restaurants would be a wild understatement. Marcel was once the pinnacle of the portfolio, but things have changed. Our last few visits have progressively been worse and worse. Service was sloppy and insincere, we had to physically go find our server 4 times to get drinks, silverware, etc. Our server was awkward and absent. We sat outside and 3 mins after sitting he asked us if we would mind if the table sitting directly next to us could smoke cigars. They got to hear us say "no". Fun start. Thank goodness for Chlo (spelling?) she did her best to make up for all the other snafus. Food was also only ok, my veal parm was mushy and unimpressive. Server forgot we had wine decanting and we had to ask to have it brought after entrees arrived. We were there celebrating my mother-in-law's 70th. I had called to make sure everyone knew. They did not. After all of this the server was VERY proud to tell us he comp'd our corkage fee, gee thanks. With so many other great steak places in Atlanta, that may be our last visit. Disappointing to say the least. We will still be faithful to the other spots!

    Our waitresses, Kyra and Allison, were amazing. This was my third time dining here and my mom’s second time. We both agreed that this place just seems to get better each time we come. Everything from the ambience, to the service, to the drinks, to the food, to the parking was stellar. Kyra pushed us outside of our usual and recommended the sweet shrimp scampi and we’re so glad she did. I haven’t had a dish that balanced in so long. It’s a classic scampi so it doesn’t come with pasta but it was the perfect sharing size for 2 people (5 large shrimp). Allison offered us some toasted sourdough bread to sop up the rest of the scampi sauce and it was an amazing recommendation. We split the bone in filet and oh my gosh, I think we both went to heaven and back with our first bite. We got asparagus as a side and even that was probably some of the best asparagus I’ve had in my life. Thoroughly impressed and 100% will be back. Again, huge shoutout to Kyra and Allison for everything!

    We were really hoping that we would have the same experience as other reviewers. Unfortunately, that was not the case. They were out of the two appetizers that we wanted. They charged us for an extra drink that we neither ordered nor received. They forgot about our salad. The food that we did get was wonderful. I’m not sure if it was just an off night for them or if others have had similar experiences. I don’t expect these things to happen when fine dining and it was disappointing.

    We enjoyed the Beef Wellington, lobster risotto, and the Baked Alaskan performance. The servers were very attentive. My seating in the restaurant was below my expectations however. We were the first patrons at the restaurant but were seated in an area next to the kitchen and behind the bar with very little lighting. Since this was my first time there, I didn’t realize that there was a regular seating area in the restaurant until after I saw couples being escorted in the dining area. I would have preferred that area. I walked to the dining room and was immediately approached by a young lady who asked if I was looking for the restroom which I wasn’t. Soon after I returned to my seat, my server returned with a story of my “special seat.” With my back issues, the high bar seating exasperated my pain causing me discomfort during dinner and the pain is still present. Will I return for another visit? I’m not sure if I will.

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary, and the experience couldn’t have been better. The atmosphere was full of energy, the service was very attentive to our needs, and all courses were excellent! I highly recommend the Tomahawk steak with the crab toppings. I usually don’t like any toppings on my steak, but I’m glad I made this exception!

    Went there for my birthday. The food was excellent. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations. I tried Baked Alaska and that was a special little show as well. I would take off a point only because our table was a bit wobbly and small for all the food we got. That’s not picking though. I will be back with more family to try this place out.
