Dine out on Christmas Day for a stress-free Christmas
Make this Christmas one you’ll never forget with lunch at Marcus. We'll be serving a bespoke six-course menu with matched wines, highlighting quality, seasonality and provenance in every dish.
Really lovely. Impeccable service (we were even asked by Marcus himself if we were being looked after, was rather starstruck!), pleasantly luxurious setting in the Berkeley, and the food was delicious. We had the 5 course tasting menu with cheese board, the first dish in particular (a burrata with olives and spun sugar) was stunning and very unique. The rest were solid 1 star - excellent food cooked excellently. We went for an anniversary and the staff were extremely kind in helping us mark the occasion. I was pleased to learn also they had a good range of non-alcoholic options including Seedlip. Overally highly recommended for a special dinner.
Really excellent. Staff going out of their way to make one feel valued and special.
Wonderful food . Outstanding service! Red prawns was the best I’ve ever had
First time back in 5 years and was excellent
Fabulous lunch experience. Staff were very welcoming, food was magnificent. Fixed price 3 course lunch with wine was excellent value.
We will definitely return.
Inventive cooking with very good service.
It was a lovely Valentines evening, the food was amazing, the service and ambience as well, would recommend for a special occasion ....
Outstanding as usual
both the food as the service was of a very high level
especially when having a table for one the attention you get
from the staff males all the difference and today they confirmed that rule: thank you for a delightful experience
highly recommended and I’ll be back for sure !
Enjoyed a great dinner. We ordered scallops and the prawns as starters. Both were delicious dishes. Aziz our waiter highly recommended the lamb (which was halal added bonus) and it did not let us down. Beautifully cooked and presented.
We finished off the evening with the pre ordered custard tart which was simply divine.
Great service by Aziz and Angelo.
Had the full 8 course tasting menu and every dish was spot on our table host was really really good very attentive and looked after us all evening to a very high standard couldn’t fault a single thing
Nice atmosphere, located in a nice hotel.
We had 8 course menu with wine pairing. Some dishes were excellent, some so-so but it’s a personal preference. Wines were really great, especially white wines and dessert wine. Nice touch with an extra dessert for a birthday occasion.
Service was good, but got a bit sloppy towards the end of dinner, when it got busier. Took a long time to get the bill, staff seemed busy with serving tables and didn’t return the bill for 15 minutes after we asked.
Some staff members spoke with strong local accents and it was difficult to understand food presentations. No female servers...I thought that was strange and hopefully not the restaurant policy.
Outdated decor - more like a ‘80 disco lighting ! Too many interrupting Waiters with bread and water and “how is it” and “my colleague will take your order” - I will let you know if I need something right ! - mini mini minimalistic amount of food - prepare yourself for another meal and we took the 3 courses. Would I go back ? Probably not
Quite simply, the most delicious meal I've ever tasted!
Our third visit and once again enjoyable with very good seats looking out into the restaurant itself. It is very pricey which is why we only visit once a year.
Simply wonderful experience and we were lucky Marcus was there who was both incredibly friendly and hospitable
Great food, great service and decent value. You can on occasion go to Michelin starred restaurants and walk away thinking you could do better. This definitely wasn’t the case here.
Good food shame about the service.
We were a party of 3 all opting for the 8 course tasting option with paired wines. Food was good and certain dishes were a delight.
Service felt rushed and mistakes were made. I personally felt disappointed as I made the arrangements and booked Marcus. When you spend £800 for 3 people you expect better. Waiters were non attentive we had a mix of 3 or 4. They spoke quickly and quietly and when we asked the any questions they almost looked annoyed as if they needed to be somewhere else. We won't be returning or recommending.
I recently had the pleasure of dining at Sat Bains in Nottingham and the difference in the overall experience is vast for both food and service.
Perfection, food was delicious, service discreetly attentive, ambience at lunch time was calm and elegant! I truly cannot fault it at all and thoroughly recommend it for a special occasion. Will be back soon.
We had an amazing day from start to finish, which was complemented by the very friendly and professional staff. We opted for the three course set menu, accompanied by three great wines provided by the informative sommelier. The stand out dishes were the scallops and duck, which were equally delicious and contributed to a lovely meal. Special thanks to Shauna and Mark for looking after us, we will certainly be coming back for more. The "Marcus Everyday Book" was the icing on the cake.
Great food × friendly staff = best dinner in London!! Try their duck - confidently recommend it:)
Staff were attentive but somewhat aloof - which for such an upmarket restaurant is probably expected
Lovely time was had by myself and my friend
Excellent service 🙏🏻 fine food & wine !! recommended 👍
Excellent food, great service from reservation to dinner. This would have been a 5 star dinner if not for a very poor wine that gave the whole evening a bit of a dent though. The 2015 Gaja Barbaresco was just awful - pale, very acidic, just way too young to have as one of the sommelier “selections”. Had to pour it away
For the price and the accolades, the food did not meet our expectations, especially when considering the alternatives at this price range.
The environment was nice, the service was amazing and the servers very likeable and genuine.
Overall it was a very pleasant evening
Extremely disappointed by the whole experience. The service was appalling. The sommelier was aloof, disinterested and did a poor job of explaining the wines. He looked distressed and even had beads of sweat pouring down his face which is not what I would expect from such a restaurant. Other waiters could barely remember what they were serving and did a poor job of making the experience an exciting one. The bill came to £750.00 for three of us which one can accept if all aspects of the dining experience is outstanding. This was not, in any way. I will not be going back.
We celebrate birthday and had an oustanding dinner, we took the chef menu and everything was just fantastic the service the food and the wine recommended by the somelier really enjoyed
Remains an elegant option for lunch in central London. Great wine list but a bit overpriced in comparison to Core or Murano.
The menu however is suitability varied with thoughtful and delicious British product. We will return for the great food and wonderful service.
Amazing staff and service , food was outstanding couldn’t fault anything definitely recommend!
We had a wonderful time at Marcus. The food, service and ambience was impeccable as expected at a Michelin Starred restaurant. Everything was presented and described well. Didn't feel rushed at Marcus and we were given plenty of time to enjoy our food.
Food, service, atmosphere were perfect to the smallest detail.
Loved the whole experience from start to finish! Service was spotless and the food was impeccable! I will definitely go back soon!
The food was good, some interesting courses. Final dessert course was the best dish of the evening.
However the wine pairing was average. Was slightly disappointed that there was no dessert wine or wine paired for the end of the meal.
London restaurant festival menu was incredible value. Service impeccable and the food itself absolutely delicious. Would highly recommend!
Good food particularly the creative desserts were excellent and we appreciate the free additional dessert . The service excellent! However the old deco and the light needs to be refreshed.
Food choices on Set Menu limited, but my daughter and I delighted with the food. Other, fussier daughter, would have liked more choice as she is vegetarian.
All other aspcts of the night were lovely.
My second visit here and will be returning.
Overall very good, starter and desserts we ordered are all good. Turbot main course very nice too, except A piece of label stick found on the plum for the duck dish
We had a lovely evening at Marcus to celebrate a special birthday with a friend. It was the most expensive taster menu we have had in London (we went for 8 courses) but the food was amazing. The wine pairing was disappointing however and didn't complement the food as much as other pairings have done so in the past at other restaurants. The atmosphere in the restaurant was really nice and we were able to chat all evening. The staff were very attentive, especially when we were drinking bottled water, less so when we changed to tap water (we ended up pouring our own by the end of the evening). We were treated to a small piece of cake and candle to acknowledge our friend's birthday which was thoughtful. Would totally recommend Marcus to anyone wanting a special meal in London.
P.S Look out for the cobwebs in the corner of the room behind the booth!
Quite a special interior! Has the feel of an old British drawing room, with its dark wooden interior, with some very interesting paintings hanging on the walls. All very diverse. I'm sure there's a story to them and why they're there. Questions for next time! I took enough of a friendly Italian waiter's time asking about the names of all 14 cheese available that day. Grazi!
The atmosphere is very chatty and vibrant. There's something cosy about the place, at least I felt that way. Maybe it's the wooden interior, and the soft sofa seats you can lounge on.
The food was all very, very good. The execution of cooking, I thought, was very good. Nothing amiss there. They do some interesting combinations of the flavours, none of which clashed, or stuck out in a bad way, but at the same time, I can't help a feel a bit like there was a slight lack of sparkle there. I felt the creative flavours were a tad muted. Not that that's bad, not everything needs to be wasabi this, cacao that, kimchi those. I suppose their interpretation is just a little bit more gentle, and that's their thing, and that's cool.
The very open and friendly waiter Ben recommended the off-menu pear tarte tatin for dessert, and I went for it. Best decision I made that day. My favourite tarte tatin, albeit pear not apple, I've had in London, so far.
Catch of the day: I use my fork on the right hand. After the first course, the staff noticed this and set the cutlery accordingly thereafter.
Fantastic food, service and atmosphere. A definite must for memorable lunch date.
