    Incredible experience at Marcel! We were first timers and from the Oysters and Shrimp Scampi to our main entrees it was perfect! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to go to this restaurant.

    The food was incredible, the service and attention that we received from every member of the Marcel team was unmatched and everyone went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and attended to. I’m not a huge steak person, but I tried my boyfriends and it was amazing. The chicken I ordered was probably the best chicken I’ve ever eaten. The bread, escargot, oysters— everything was completely top notch.

    Ate here with my husband for date night. Our server Kevin was wonderful, knowledgeable and attentive. After a round of drinks and the fresh focaccia bread, we enjoyed the cacio e pepe, the branzino with pommes dauphi and for dessert, the apple galette. Although we came for the burgers, they ended up being sold out already… I guess we will have to visit here another time.

    Marcel always exceeds our expectations! This is our third visit and it did not disappoint. Everything was perfect, from the greeting we received when we walked in, to the service at the table, to the goodbyes at the end of the night. We had raw oysters from PEI and the Salad Marcel to start. Of course, we had the "crack bread" which I don't remember from previous visits but dang that was very flavorful and addictive! I had the fish du jour, which was Branzino that evening, and I had had this fish before but never like this! It was so perfectly cooked and seasoned that I ate every bite. It was crispy on the top layer and delicate beneath, with just enough salt and fat to melt in your mouth. My fiancé had the bone-in steak (I don't remember which cut), but it was perfection as well. We had the Pommes Dauphinoise and loved the gently burned top which was almost like caramelized gruyere and butter. We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine with dinner suggested by our super-knowledgeable waiter. We eyed our neighbors' Baked Alaska and Bananas Foster, but our bellies were too full to go there. Next time! Definitely one of the finer dining experiences in Atlanta that is 100% worth it!

    We were taken to our table right away, and the service members were very friendly. First course came out without issue, along with the audit beverages. Unfortunately, ball was dropped during the second course. We read it a very long time for our salad course, and the two salads came out separately, separated by approximately 10 minutes. No explanation was offered. Additionally, my red wine was poured into my white wine glass. Third course, steaks were cooked well. To be honest, this place seems to be more about hype and reputation, and the Instagram selfie, rather than service excellence. There are cheaper and better options, including Bones. Recommending bypassing this location, unless you were feeling super compels for overpriced food and service that is not commensurate to the price point.

    There is nothing I didn’t love about this restaurant. Made a last minute reservation to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Times were going quickly. I was pleasantly surprised when we entered the door in the corner. The decor is eclectic but elegant. I loved the bathroom. We had two servers both were phenomenal. They explained how things work and took care of all our needs before we could even ask. Drinks were strong and delicious. The food was impeccable. We sat by the kitchen and the number of fry orders that came out forced us to order some as well. My friends could not stop talking about the oysters and we split a Marcel salad. For entrees we had the simple fish, the NY strip and the lobster risotto. My only disappointment was that I didn’t save room for dessert. I can’t wait to go back!

    Location bit hard to find. Food okay and service fine. It give no meaning to get frozen out buy a 60 degree air con and they just offered blanket instead of turning the thing off. Getting cold air down my neck spoiled my evening and we where not offered another table even a lot where free.

    The service is always wonderful when we visit Marcel! we grabbed drinks at the bar before being seated and while the bartenders were incredibly attentive and personable it was very difficult to have a conversation due to an incredibly loud table behind us. Once we moved into the dining room the ambience was much quieter and conversation was easy to hear. Our servers were incredible and we appreciated the fact that we got some tips and insights on how to makes the perfect Manhattan! Oh, and the food… it goes without saying … the petite madam was like butter and all the dishes were so incredibly savory.

    This restaurant was amazing. It was my husbands birthday present and he loved his tomahawk steak. The service was awesome and they never let our glasses get empty or our table get to dirty. Definitely the best meal I have had in a while. The setting was so nice, kinda dark, quiet, really cool decor, and I loved the older tables and chairs. Everything about it was 10/10.

    I went here for my birthday on the week of January 13th. Let me tell you AMAZING EXPERIENCE. The staff were incredible and the food was sublime. Our main server I believe her name was Alison, had just started in Marcel’s a few months before. She was very knowledge, social, and even allowed me to walk over to the Caesar salad making station and let me watch as she made the fresh dressing and tossed the salad. We will definitely return.

    Marcel has always been one of our faves until our experience last night. From the scowl on the hostess’ face (she was rude and unfriendly), to the poor timing of the kitchen delivering food, our meal was bizarre.

    IF YOU WANT OUTSTANDING SERVICE as well as DELICIOUS FOOD, come here in 2023. The ambiance here is absolutely second to none. It’s slightly darker, true to its French roots, and the setting is clearly detailed and thoughtful. This is an intimate, more dimly lit restaurant with a beautiful interior. However, can I just say. The service here is amazing. Not sure if I’m the only one who struggles to find good service in the present day anywhere I go, but the staff here is incredible. There are people constantly tending to the table, and not in an obnoxious way. My water was constantly filled, napkins replaced and folded, silverware switched out, our orders with a few substitutions perfectly crafted and not a thing left out. The staff is just amazing. I have gotten way more grateful for that type of service post COVID because I believe it is RARE. I realize I haven’t even talked food yet, but this is my favorite restaurant in Atlanta. I have gone twice now and waited until after to leave this review to make sure I didn’t have recency bias before. The chicken was amazing, the pasta was amazing, the dessert. I have not a single bad thing to say. I will come here for every special occasion whenever I can.
