    We had been here before a while back but wanted to take my sister for her birthday and none of us were disappointed. The ambience in the place is great, has a buzz but not in a frenetic way. The food was excellent, we had the set menu, and there are a few foodie extras along the way. A couple of bottles of very nice wine... The service was top notch as you would expect it, attentive without being over powering, would highly recommend Marcus's to anyone who wants a great dining experience.

    Another delicious meal, this time the £60 lunch menu which is exceptional value for a Michelin starred restaurant in central London. Faultless service and great atmosphere, it was a full service and had a nice buzzy atmosphere without being noisy. Looking forward to our return visit!

    This was a birthday treat that delivered to create a memorable experience in the best possible way. The restaurant is well spaced with plenty of room and airiness that I didn't expect. The decor was subtle and the atmosphere was tranquil and calm. The staff from the outset were polite, friendly, relaxed, and attentive. Dining at lunchtime the 5-course menu was delicious and the accompanying wine pairings were perfect. The menu was innovative and tasted incredible. I'd recommend this restaurant to everyone.

    Quite simply breathtaking. This is the kind of places that earn and fully deserve their michelin star. So many handed out like smarties and they severely lack in either food, value or service. This place hits the spot square on the head every single turn. Fabulous lunch from Craig and his team.

    There are 3 choices: 5 and 7 course tasting menus and a 3 course a la carte which we had (typical price £120 plus 13.5% service). There are only 3 choices for each course, none of which are vegetarian, so I think the choice is a bit limited as 4 choices would be normal (for a non pre-theatre menu). The amuse bouche of 3 small items is very pleasant. I had the mackeral and my wife had the quail - mine had a strange mixture of flavours that I didn't particularly like but she loved hers. For the main, we both had the beef which was small but very good. The accompanying potatoe had a strange granola like texture which neither of us liked. We both had the chocolate desert which was very good. We have been here before and we feel the chef has lost his way a bit by trying to be different and marry unusual flavours and textures together. If you have been here you will know that the wine is very expensive - I spotted one wine that was priced about 7 times its cost. I'm happy to accept the really high prices if everything is outstanding, but on this occasion I don't think it was. The one exception was the service which was excellent.

    I had a business lunch and had looked ahead to chose an option which I thought wouldn't be too expensive and was pleasantly surprised to see a 3 course set menu for £60 per head. I had a look on line to see if I could find a drinks list and couldn't but went ahead with the booking anyway. The food and service was very good but once you had added the drink to the bill it ended up being over £320 which was a bit of a surprise. We had 2 glasses of fizz, a bottle of the cheaper red wine and the two cheapest dessert wines. It was perhaps a little naive when I thought the meal would come to between £200-250. I couldn't fault the food or service but the bill just tainted the experience.

    We booked dinner for my partner's birthday. We had a great banquette seat with a view across the dining room. We opted for the tasting menu and some wine recommendations from the sommelier. All the dishes were very good with some being really delicious. The wine recommendations were excellent. Overall it was a special meal for a special occasion.

    It is always disappointing when the chef on whom the reputation of the restaurant has been built is no longer there. The food was delicious the service superb and the prices exorbitant which are presumably predicated on a Michelin starred chef running the kitchen. Sat Baines is always at his restaurant which is how it should be. A lesson learned.

    We attended as a couple for my wife’s birthday. We had the 7 course tasting menu which was divine. We accompanied the food with Chateau Charlemagne and Guardo Al Tasso. There was no wine pairing option, and the Al a carte menu was not available. This is now normal for Saturdays. . Notwithstanding the restrictions this was a very high standard meal with friendly and efficient service.

    This was my second visit to Marcus, my first dinner and tasting menu there. I have an allergy to garlic which I made the team aware of prior to my visit. I could see that one dish on the tasting menu had garlic and I was keen to see if I could have that dish without. In fact, Chef prepared three courses for me separate to the standard menu to accommodate my allergy - above and beyond anything I was expecting - and they were all delicious. We were also doing the wine pairing with the meal and, again, I had different wines to pair with my individual dishes. The evening was wonderful, the service and food was exceptional, the ambience delightful and I can highly recommend Marcus to anyone wanting a quality dining experience.

    I thought the whole experience was underwhelming. We had the tasting menu. The food was good but nothing more. The main I could have cooked at home myself and the dessert lacked any wow factor and just tasted of chocolate. The wine pairing was average. The service was overly fussy and exaggerated bordering on being annoying. You couldn’t have a chat for more than 30 seconds before someone interrupted you. The ambiance was non existent although it was fairly quiet and less than half full. Overall, a disappointing experience and won’t be going back.

    Marcus was nothing short of spectacular. From start to finish you are treated like not royalty; this is far too stiff and formal, but more like that fun uncle or aunt you had growing up, the one you always wanted to be around and would do anything for. You have the staff's complete attention who are not only friendly and swift but personable and funny. We went for the 7 course tasting menu (rounded off with an added tarte tatin because it would be incredibly uncouth not to) with sommelier's selection and it certainly did not disappoint. The refinement of every dish was a work of art; how one elevates a baked potato was never a question on my mind however the answer is now never far from my mind as for me this was the triumph of the evening. Each course was an adventure in taste from bold to subtle flavours and very intelligent in skill and delivery. This wasn't a menu scrawled out on the back of a napkin but a love story delicately and meticulously planned for all to enjoy. Each pairing was a perfect match and took us on a journey across the globe which by the end had our legs wobbling from all that travelling! To summarise, Marcus had the feel and service of a family run restaurant where they take pride and great pleasure in serving you. The kitchen I believe to be a coalition of top level chefs and magicians and this wasn't just a culinary masterclass it was also a little magical.
