In life, friendships go hand in hand with food... Which into turn means exploring the local cuisine of the city you live in with those you love... June = celebrations of the little people on our lives so we headed to @marcusbelgravia by @marcuswareing a much loved chef by a friend... @travelzoo offer of 5 courses with glass of champagne was delightful! The #breadselection of #sourdough #olivebread #baguette #potato #beignets to the much devoured #duck and savoured #earlgreytea cream with whisky sauce for dessert!! From the time you're seated to the time you leave, the service was 5/5, the food 5/5. Don't let the small portions fool you, after all the bread, starters by the team you reach dessert, your stomach will be thanking you! The food was simple, rich, colourful, tasteful, and enjoyable! Definitely one of the best restaurants and food I've had thr pleasure of eating at.

Absolutely superb in every respect. We have wanted to go here for years and it lived up to our expectation.
My only criticism would be the wine list which is extensive but also very expensive. For example, we had champagne to start which was £26 a glass for a 125ml but the waiter didn’t mention that there is a half bottle for (375ml) £55. It also appears on the menu in a different place below vintage sparking wine rather than with champagne by the glass. I thought that was poor.
We had the 3 course menu which had plenty of choice and was £90 and came with about 4 extra mini amuse Bouche courses. The food was outstanding.
If you haven’t been and are thinking about it then do it!

Everything was great except for the sweetbreads. Apparently they don’t know how to lean them before cooking. You need to par boil them in order separate the meat from the connective tissue. You can then sauté them any way you want. I got in uncleared piece that was not enjoyable to eat.

This was my tenth visit for lunch and sadly not the best .. we both had the fixed menu for 55.00 although the service was excellent the menu wasn’t that great and we both didn’t eat out main course of lamb as it was to undercooked and very fatty .. although they offered to cook a replacement we felt it was all a little to late
Our bill for lunch was 260.00 although I thought it was a little over priced for the occasion which was for my birthday

Staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable- had a particularly wonderful experience with Elton the sommelier as you could tell he had a great passion for what he does.

we did the 8 course- which started light and delicate and then worked into more richer, luxurious flavours as the meal progressed. They portions were generous and we left quite full. The steak and the skate stood out for me.

Have told many friends and family, would definitely go back

Where do I start. I think was expecting a slick run dining experience it’s was far from this there was no one over looking everyone everybody had any role and was running around like headless chickens
Some customers where waiting for ever to be served
They told us 2.5 hours we have the table. It took over 3.5 hours to serve us all our food.
Just overall disappointment Service poor , food good not great.

The seasonal winter tasting menu was full of earthy flavours, which I thoroughly enjoyed!

Went for the 8 course option which, to be honest, was a little too much.

A few mishaps that detracted from the overall experience...the trout dish was served piping hot without a word of warning. Also a foreign object was found in the last desert, which was remedied through the bill. Having said that, this is not what you would expect from such an establishment and it definitely took the shine from the experience.

I last ate st Marcus on the 30th September 2018, a day or so before it lost a star. I had eaten a lunch the day before at Le Manoir and choose the deconstructed grouse as a main course to better compare the two - I ate a roast grouse on the 29th similarly.

The grouse came in a glass cloche with heather smoke and was possibly one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. It’s originality and wonderful cookery eclipsed the day before.

Why Marcus lost its second star is a mystery to me. The central agenda for a restaurant has to be food and each time I have found it one of the beat and most original kitchens in the UK. To demote it to the same standard as Hide is a plainly wrong. (To have a blanket catch all that includes so many so ordinary eateries is a mystery.)

I have long felt that compares to Hand In Flowers and Le Manoir and Gavroche that Marcus sailed above them all.

Last week was no different. A set lunch presented as stylishly and with such evident skill and elegance from the kitchen deserves recognition.

If you want to try some of the most original thinking combined with the very beat learning that experience brings go and eat here.

We booked this after a recommendation and we had the 8 course tasting menu. We loved the ambiance of the restaurant and the staff were lovely and polite. Overall the food was very tasty, we have dined at numerous Michelin starred restaurants and in this instance we don't think it's worth the price.

There was another table of 2 next to us and after an hour and half it was clear that the timing of our food was tied to how fast they were eating their courses as they always came out at the same time. Whilst we understand the logic of this, the other diners took almost triple the amount of time to eat each course and so we were waiting for a minimum of 20 minutes between our courses. Again for the amount of money you pay for this experience we would have liked our meal timings to have been catered to our pace and not dictated by other diners. In total our 8 course meal took 3 hours, sadly for us this is not acceptable and so based on this we will not be returning.

We dined at Marcus a few years back and loved the ambience and enjoyed one of those meals you remember and talk about long after the event. So for a special occasion we booked it again. Sad to say it felt like Basil and Manuel were running the show yesterday. We waited 45 minutes for someone to take our order. An hour and 15 minutes later we still hadn’t received our starters and whenever we asked staff for an update they variously turned up with random offerings on top of the normal amuse bouche - all very nice - but none of them the actual meal we had ordered. By the time we were finally served our starters we were a bit over it. About 20 minutes later, we were served what we thought was our main meal but it turned out to be a quail dish thrown in by the kitchen as our main meal was delayed, which wasn’t explained at the time. We were too full to eat our mains when they did arrive about two hours in. Along with the very loud row a couple were having a table away from us and the shrugs of helpless waiters, it was all pretty depressing. We agreed we would have had more fun and be a lot better off financially if we had sat on a bench with a packet of chips. We will remember this meal at Marcus for a long time - but for all the wrong reasons.
