The Marisol Ratings and Reviews
This was my 1st time to the restaurant. The food was phenomenal. The lamb just melt in your mouth and all you needed was a butter knife to cut the filet. The cauliflower soup was out of this world and to top the meal off - the Scharffen Berger Liquid Center Chocolate Cake for desert was an absolute winner. Service was excellent. Definitely will go back.
This was our first visit and we were wonderfully pleased. We were celebrating my mothers birthday and it was a great choice. The oysters were to die for and I usually am not a fan of oysters. Everyone was beyond pleased with their food. Our waitress was beyond amazing. We will definitely be back.
Love this place. The food is consistently great, and portions are generous. The decor and layout could use a refresh (it really can feel like dining in a storefront with the wicker screen as the only partition) but typically I am more focused on my company and my meal. Great and knowledgeable staff.
The Marisol is the standard to which every dining experience is compared...as special as this place is one must ask why dine anywhere else? I couldn't afford to eat here daily, but with the impeccable service, and delightful and flavorful creations this place is an amazing value. My favorite. I wonder, "why has it been so long since we last dined here? "
We arrived on time and staff didn't have our reservation. I showed it to them on my phone, along with the reservation number. They stated that several times Open Table had not notified them of reservations. Really? Great. Open Table, you have only one job: Notify the restaurant. Dear reader, do yourself a favor and just call the restaurant. Why include a middleman, and the opportunity to have your special evening marred? Marisol staff did their best to accommodate us, but it was clear they were pretty irritated with Open Table and we felt like intruders because of it. This was my wife's birthday. She does not like fish or seafood, and Marisol does not publish online its menu. We took a chance and went, to find there were four choices for her. Thankfully, she enjoyed the lamb entrée. But the embarrassing start, the limited selection for her, and the over-the-top prices made this restaurant a one-stop sampling experience for us.
We were visiting from Florida, furniture shopping and found this fabulous restaurant. The food was divine, and the service was excellent. Had two appetizers. The crab pasta was yummy, and the homemade truffle sausages were tasty and uniquely flavored with truffle oil. I had the duck which was perfectly cooked and a nice size portion and my wife had fish which was wonderful. For dessert we had bread pudding and cheesecake. Both were excellent! I seriously cannot imagine a better fine dining experience than The Marisol. It is truly a gem!
We went to Marisol for a Birthday celebration having heard such great things about it. I had the duck and I must admit it was a little dry. Still good considering I never prepare duck at home. Next time I would try the seafood choices, though. The main waiter was wonderful. The hostess was a bit underdressed considering the caliber of restaurant this is supposed to be. Still, though, everything was very good and we will go back.
We have eaten at Marisol for over 15 years. It is probably the best restaurant in our area. On this occasion, they were very busy which caused our service to suffer. My wife's salmon was excellent as usual, but I ordered the special- a strip steak that was only average. The desserts were excellent when they finally arrived. I hope that this experience was an aberration and not the start of deterioration of quality and service.
Best meal I've had in Greensboro in a long time. Came with a Foodie meetup group. There were twelve of us , two tables of six. Everyone tried a different dish. All were very pleased with the food. Marisol is pricey but each dish was expertly prepared. The menu is small but the fresh daily specials were plentiful, creative and very well prepared. Even the bread baked fresh daily in house is amazing!
We never miss a chance to eat at The Marisol. It is absolutely one of the best, if not THE best restaurant in NC. Chef Robin is amazing. Everything served to us, you could taste every ingredient. Perfectly balanced cuisine. Scott and Heather are the most professional and well informed servers you could hope for. Whatever they recommend, take it. Not to be missed in your dining travels.
Menu food and service were all very good. The only issue I had was that they announce a specials menu daily, which is quite large, and makes the customer work hard at trying to remember everything and keeps the waitstaff at the tables for an inordinate amount of time.
Drinks are huge and very good. Food is creative and well executed. The wine list is really good and large for the size restaurant that it is. All in all, I would definitely go back.
This is our favorite restaurant. We absolutely love it. Come here for all special occasions. Very expensive but worth every penny. Now that the new interstate is open is a quick drive of about 10-15 minutes as before it used to take us almost 30 in Greensboro. Love this place. Just wish it was closer to Irving Park.
This is simply an amazing restaurant. We now live in Charlotte and it is a ways to go for dinner. We came last weekend for our anniversary. It took an hour and 40 minutes to get there based on the road construction but it was well worth the drive. The food is creative with many choices. But as amazing as the food always is, the service is even better. We had Scott, who is a favorite of ours. We had not been for a couple years but he remembered us. He has the uncanny knack of being friendly and professional at the same time. I don't recall getting better service ever than he regularly gives his customers.
It's a long way to go for us, but we say every time -- we need to do this more often. Thanks Marisol and thanks Scott for your amazing service! You are a wow!
Without a doubt, the best restaurant I've found in North Carolina! I can't imagine why it is not packed every night!!! It was very quiet when I took my aunt there, and we had the most delicious meal, with attentive and pleasant service, in a lovely setting. It is a little bit tucked away, but worth finding for sure! It is truly "fine dining", starting with the "amuse-bouche" and ending with a fantastic chocolate soufflé for dessert. We had eaten there a year or so ago, and I think it was even better this time! Marisol compares very favorably with any restaurant I've been to in California, where I live. I would highly recommend it.
