    This was my first time at Marcels. This well definitely NOT be the last! A close friend from out of town suggested we go here!The service was fantastic! My server Anthony was super helpful and made this dining experience that much better! I mentioned to him that I was in the restaurant industry and told him about my pizzeria. When he came back with our order he brought back little mini pizzas for us! I’m never going to forget that! I’m excited to be back with more friends and family!

    My husband and I frequent Marcel because their restaurant experience is excellent, bar none. This time we chose to wrap up Valentine’s Day weekend here. Per usual, we were greeted with a warm welcome and immediately taken to our seats. Our servers Mark and Sonny were top notch! We dined here before but we were still told about the menus and given excellent suggestions. My husband and I were unsure of the dessert choice but thanks to Sonny’s strong suggestion to get the “Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake” our evening closed at Marcel with the amazing experience we always enjoyed. We live kinda far but We’ll continue to return!

    Words cannot express how amazing this experience was. The moment my date and I walked into Marcel, we knew we were in for something special. The ambiance of Marcel makes for a great date night and they exceeded our expectations by stamping my date and I menu with happy anniversary. The food was some of the best we've had, but what exceeded everything was the service. Laura and Mark were so personable and went above and beyond to make our evening special. Mark personally had some of the staff sign our menu wishing us a happy anniversary. Have not been able to stop talking about how great this place was and highly recommend everyone to try Marcel if they get the chance.

    Marcel is an excellent place for a date! My lady and I loved it. The ambience was perfect. The music was superb for the evening. We definitely felt the love in the atmosphere from everyone on Valentine's Day. My lady quoted "This place is in her Top 5 for restaurants in Atlanta!" I feel the same way. Thanks, Marcel!!!!!!!!

    The service was a 10/10 my first time here I felt the ambiance was pretty dope and chill. But the food I have to say I frequent a lot of steakhouses and this by far was one I just can’t seem to give over a 6.5 on the meal I had.. I understand the evening was busy because of Valentine’s Day and the prefix menu is what was being offered but as far as the lobster it was very though and difficult to chew the steak could have had just a lil more touch of seasoning added, the pork belly came out cold in the middle twice. But overall I may try them again on a different night/ occasion when the full menu would be available and see what Marcel really has to offer.

    Marcel, even on a less-than-perfect evening is overall excellent. That said, the Valentine’s Prix Fix menu wasn’t great for the cost pp. Additionally - and it pains me to say this - the seafood wasn’t what’s should have been: The shrimp were tough and salty, and the oysters were suspiciously “fishy” and the lobster was overcooked. The steak, sides and dessert however, were phenomenal. Service at the bar and by the seating host were, as ever, top-notch. I will always return to Marcel for a stellar meal and evening, but for another busy Prix Fix night, it’s doubtful.

    We went for the Valentine’s Day experience so this may not be representative but it was not good. The service was poor - took 2.5 hours to get through the meal and we waited about 30 minutes between each course. The food was even worst than the service. Steak was undercooked and almost all of the food was lacking in flavor including the steak which seemed to not even have salt. This is definitely the most over priced meal I have ever paid for.

    I'm sorry, but paying over six hundred dollars for a Valentine's 4-course prix fixe and having to share our selection of the main dish, including some of the pre-course selections, was excessive. While the service was excellent, the food was just ok. We had the tomahawk steak and lobster, which was just ok. The pre-course pork belly was all fat, and the short rib pre-course was not seasoned. My Caesar salad was slightly soggy, and our creamed corn was too salty. We expected better for a $695 meal and should be offered a retry

    This was my wife and I’s first Marcel experience. It was the best tasting food I’ve ever had. I got the dry aged ribeye with lobster and thought it was the best food I’ve ever eaten. Even more impressive was the service. We were fortunate to be taken care of by Mark and Brian, who attended to and anticipated our every need. My water never made it more than 2/3 down the cup. I will recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for the best dining experience in the state (and elsewhere).

    The evening was going smoothly from an ambience perspective until they seated a large party in the room. I can appreciate they were having a good time, but they were really loud and should've considered a private room. Other than that, service and food were spectacular.

    The food was great as other reviews mentioned but nothing really was out of this world. However, the service was very lukewarm, starting from the host who was not friendly at all to welcome guests, then she made us waited for around 5-7 minutes before bringing us to the table, this sounds ridiculous but why would we need to wait while the table was ready? why didnt she just take us in? she was just hanging around the host stand and then "ok, follow me". The assistance service was fantastic, the 2 star was not meant for her, she was good and i think her name is Melinda, she was nice, friendly and helpful. However, the main server who took the order was so meh, not friendly at all. He went through the menu lighting fast, like reading books for kids when they are sleepy! and didn't have any genuine responses to any of our questions. He didnt check on us, didnt smile or being friendly, just blah! My husband asked for Spirit menu, they was confused and didnt bring the menu, instead, the server was explaining to my husband about their own bourbon barrel and yes he made us feel small. When you come to this kind of restaurant with an entree of $75 or more, you would expect to at least get a friendly service. We are glad that we tried but would not come back.

    I was excited to bring an old friend to Marcel for his first time to celebrate his birthday ~ we've known it to be a luxurious & delicious dining experience and the four of us friends were all looking forward to it throughout the week. We ordered several plates which were all divine ~ paired with some wonderful French wine & the cozy ambiance. After our final 4 dishes were served, our server came back to notify us of last call. I asked for the wine list and he scoffed & then rolled his eyes when I ordered a second bottle of wine for the four of us (we would've gladly ordered it earlier had he prompted us for more beverages). After that, the remainder of our evening consisted of scowls, servers' lingering eyes, head-shaking that we were still there sipping our wine, and a general sense of discomfort from their glares. It was difficult to detach from their bad attitudes. The cherry on top was his failure to present a dessert menu or mention it whatsoever. Once again, it was a birthday and we wanted to treat our friend. I understand being some of the last several tables in the restaurant, but with a price tag the way it is, we expected much better hospitality from start to finish, especially from a restaurant we've trusted and that sports a Michelin placard upon entry.
