Marx Bros Cafe Ratings and Reviews
Everything we ate was phenomenal. Service was amazing! This was our first visit and we will be back. It was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. Do try the Caesar salad made by Van at the table. But remember to bring mints for afterwards, you will need them. Best steak I've ever had, don't skip the dessert.
As always the service and food is excellent. We celebrated out 10th anniversary and had the Caesar salad, duck and I had the gnocchi and crab appetizer for dinner. We were too full to have dessert, darn it! Highly recommend Marx Brothers for special occasions.
My wife and I have been "dating" on Saturdays since 1981. The first time we went to Marx Brothers was 1981 and it has become and remains a very special restaurant for us. The salad, main courses, deserts and wine along with the service tonight were excellent keeping with the mark of excellence usually displayed at this restaurant.
My husband and I went here for our 8 year wedding anniversary. We started with the Caesar salad and then had a wonderful dinner which we enjoyed with a great bottle of wine. Finished with an excellent dessert! I love that one of the original owners from opening in 1979 made the Caesar salad, which was amazing! We will definitely be back!
This may have been a case of not managing my expectations well, but with the tremendous amount of stellar reviews for Marx Bros., I expected to be "wowed"; unfortunately, I was left disappointed. Of all the dishes ordered, the best were the salmon entree (very well prepared), and the eggplant pate appetizer (though likely because it tasted like cheese, and I love cheese). The halibut entree & its sides were a bit bland, the crab cakes were not appetizing, and the glass of wine poured for me was the end of a bottle, and there was a tremendous amount of residue coating my glass the more I drank.
I try not to go to restaurants where I spend more than $25-30 on an entree because I know good food does not have to cost that much, but my friends and I were in town for one night and we wanted to go all out. Sadly, we did not get the experience we hoped for, but still paid quite a bit for it ($40-46 per entree).
The Caesar salad ... need I say more? We love the interaction with the owner as he made his famous Caesar tableside ... how did he cut that garlic without even looking at the clove?! Our main courses were lovely and well-prepared and dessert was a treat. So glad we booked several weeks in advance to experience Marx Bros Cafe!
