Marbles is an institution

I have been eating at Marble's for as long as I can remember. It's a delightful place. The building is fantastic, and the patio is perfect, and the flower boxes are always wonderful. It has served some dishes for as long as I can remember (like the delicious lamb burger with goat cheese in the... read more

I've been here on a number of occasions and was looking forward to celebrating my birthday with a friend. The specials are on the wall on boards that neither of us could see. When we asked what the specials were, our server said she was too busy to tell us what they were and that we could get up and... More

Marbles is my favorite restaurant in Kitchener/Waterloo. A great casual but delicious menu and a daily board of specials. Fantastic desserts and sangria. Highly recommended.

I went with a coworker. It's a cute little restaurant in a building that looks like a house, surrounded by corporate buildings. I tied the Chevrai Salad (pecan crusted goat cheese on mixed greens, tomatoes, portobello mushrooms with a sesame dressing). The goat cheese was on the milder side and provided a nice compliment to the dish. The dressing was... More

Marbles is a great local restaurant with a history that goes back into the 1800's when the building was a local stable. The restaurant itself has been in operation since the 1970's, serving good food in a friendly atmosphere in downtown Waterloo. Try the Whole Earth Salad!

Fancy vegan food isn't easy to come by in a regular restaurant, and while we don't like the fact that most restaurants serve meat, fish and dairy, it is nice to find a place where you can have a pleasant experience and still eat something without compromising your vegan practices. You may not know this, but Marbles has VEGAN and... More

I went with a friend and we both ordered one of their specials - the Pork Souvlaki wrap with Caesar salad. The meat was extremely dry and over cooked. It really wasn't very good. The servers might want to consider smiling once in a while too.

A long standing neighbourhood favourite. Casual, cute, good food, good beers, not fussy at all. Good place for a Saturday lunch or afternoon snack and beer. Service at times a bit weak (young and inexperienced) but generally fine.

Food is very creative and tasty. Service always good. Quaint and small but very good. Great place for lunch and a good hang out with friends.

Went for a birthday dinner with family and although the food was decent, the service was more than terrible on a Sunday . The poor attitude of the waitress combined with having to ask for our our orders to be taken, dessert orders , coffee etc. was not the best experience . My partner has fond memories of this cute...
