I'm tempted to just write risotto over and over again for my review. It's that good. But then I wouldn't tell you about the baked Parmesan onion appetizer or the fun, bustling atmosphere. This is a fun spot for big groups - order lots of dishes to pass and share. The bar is fun, too, and there are lots of... More

We were staying at Le Meredian hotel and this was one of the restaurants mentioned by the front desk staff. We came on a Wednesday night around 6pm and it was packed. You need a reservation. We ate at the bar and had a great meal. The bartender was friendly and service was great. Both of our meals were excellent... More

We went on the Sunday night before President's Day and the place was packed. We found seats at the bar and ordered cocktails. We were not sorry that we tried something new, but neither of us really liked the drinks we ordered. We decided instead of waiting on a table, we would just eat at the bar. The bartender was...

Disappointing. We have been here a couple of times and have come away came here for dinner now in the last few months and the food really hasn't gone our way. Let me say that the service has always been fine. However, during our most recent visit, the calamari was really terrible. Super fried and pretty tasteless. The kicker was... More

Went to Marcella's with a group from work. Service was friendly, efficient, and accommodating to our large, slightly demanding party. I appreciated our server's knowledge of the dishes and wine menu. Calamari and cauliflower were both great dishes on the antipasto menu.

Marcella's is my favorite restaurant. They have the best meatball I've ever had and I cannot eat another anywhere else without comparing it to Marcella's. The staff are always so nice and I love the atmosphere.

Went here a weekend ago for dinner and was overwhelmingly dissatisfied with the meal. Everyone said to order the meatball. Yep it's large but tasteless. I looked hard to find any type of Italian herb, no basil, oregano or garlic flavor what so ever. Overpriced drinks especially when one came looking clear and the other had a slight color of... More
