Love the ambiance and decor when I first step into the restaurant. The service staff are very attentive and professional when explaining the menu to us. Food is awesome too. Will be back to try out their lunch.
Nice casual atmosphere. Great place for dining with friends, or just for date night. The food is also exceptional. Service staff are friendly. Definitely recommended to anyone who wants a place to chill at for the night
I have been dining at merci marcel quite often as I live nearby. Great service and ambiance. The only thing is - they close pretty early as it's a residential neighborhood. But their food menu is commendable.
Great first experience! I really liked the ambiance of the space and the waiters were very attentive and accommodating. I ordered the pork tenderloin as the main dish and it was super delicious. Definitely recommend dipping the baguettes in the pork tenderloin sauce too!
Staff were friendly and food was great. :) They were able to recommend choice desserts and gave us our private corner for privacy. However, thought it would be good to have a seat at the outdoor deck instead as we were only 4 pax.
Food was good. Restaurant ambience was great. The only bad thing was Quandoo, the seems to be a flaw in the system, the reataurant could not find my reservation despite me having the confirmation email, and this email to review my experience. Nonetheless, staff at Merci Marcel was very kind and sat us in.
Good food, good ambience. Does get a little hot in the courtyard at the back during lunch time (1pm), it feels great being in the lighting for a short while before you feel like you're toasting.
I would said the service was good, the manager and waiter/waitress are attentive and trying to explain the items in the menu. As a non-native English speaker, we find it challenging to pronounce and register the name of the food in the menu.
It's one of the heat lunch places to try out good quality meal around Tiong Bahru corners. Indoor aircon not cold enough. Quite crowded and noisy in lunch hours. Sometimes it's worth to try new tastes once a while though it's not inexpensive.
Staff should have a little more situational awareness - we wanted to place our order but two signaled to us to wait as they went to attend to a party of two looking for a table. Food was flavorful but would have been lovelier if pizza was available on that day we visited.
