I had dinner with two friends at Merci Marcel. We liked the cozy French ambiance. Foods were tasty and prices were reasonable. A Good place for casual dinner with friends.
Love the ambience and the staff were all relatively friendly. Would recommend it for catch ups and chilling sessions but not birthday celebrations that involves bringing a cake from outside. There will be a ‘corkage’ fee of $15. It is the first time experiencing it but maybe plan in advance and work around it if you are celebrating birthdays there.
Delicious French food in a cosy homely interior setting. Do be aware that French cuisine portion is smaller and pricier compared to the mass market restaurants. Worth a visit for that indulgence treat once in a while. Reservations is strongly recommended as waiting times can be long during peak periods.
Food is amazing! Ambience great and overall service even better - only improvement would be the order of when the food comes out - the sides came before some of the mains - eventhough most plates are for sharing - it makes more sense to have the sides dishes come with the mains or at least around the same time
Merci Marcel's dinner menu is made for sharing. We ordered the cheese croquettee, red snapper and seasoned mushrooms (this is really good!). Will be back for their brunch!
Amazing ambience and food! Not your typical run of the mill cafes with mediocre food. For afternoon tea we had crab gratin, fries and passion fruit creme brulee, all of which taste as good as they sounded on the menu. Will revisit for lunch/dinner some day.
Never a disappointment whether it’s the food, the service or the atmosphere! I’ve been here umpteen times and I have no intention to ever stop. Can’t wait to check out the new Club Street location next - I expect that menu to be no less spectacular.
Incredibly warm and friendly service, food divine also. We had booked for 4 and had a last minute addition, which despite some logistical challenges (they were literally out of furniture) they made happen. The waitstaff knew the food and wine well, and each dish was superb.
Has been several times as we liked the food. But the chocolate cake is a little dry this time. Service standard has also slipped a little. They would rather have their staff briefing first, before leading us to the correct table (change 3 times) - something to note for the management. Will still return.
Our cheese order came wrong. We asked for the hard cheese platter but got the soft cheese. We love the french butter, wanted to get additional servings for it, but they seem to be a bit taken back that we were happy to pay for it instead of getting the foc butter top up. However, when the butter arrived it was the normal butter and not the french butter, and we had to go through another whole minute of insisting that we want to pay for the french butter and that is what we wanted. I guess neither the FOH or the kitchen believed that we would want to pay for french butter. The restaurant was very hot and stuffy with selected cold spots - I wouldn't recommend it for a night out.
