Marmalade has excellent, inventive food. Great flavours. Great presentation. We echo the many complements shared by other reviewers concerning Chef Peter and his food. Just superb.
We wish, however, that the waiters let the food and wine speak for themselves. Marmalade’s menu, unlike many, is detailed and helpful; it doesn’t really need a lot of verbal explanation. Our waiter also brought a lot of energy to his descriptions of each wine he served us, but we just wanted to try the food and wine for ourselves. Two of the paired wines during our meal were already known to us, and frankly our waiter’s extensive description of one of the wines was contrary to our take on that particular wine. All the chatter is unnecessary and a bit distracting. The food is fabulous. Let the food, not the show, be the star.
