Service and food are excellent. Had the degustation with five friends. Every dish and wine waxed lyrical about. The food is a talking point, provides both visual and gastronomical entertainment. The wines too, pretty wanky but enjoyable. It takes a while, lots of courses and each meal quite amazing. Not for first dates, bit noisy and lacks intimacy. It's also... More

My husband took me to Marque tonight as a surprise for my birthday and we were both majorly disappointed. At $165 each for the food, we were expecting to be wowed. Out of the 8 dishes, only 2 were nice, the rest were so ordinary, bland, weird textures and every dish was ridiculously small. So disappointing. And the ambience was... More

The food was great quality, but the dessert wasn't anything flashy, 'blood, chocolate and cherry' pretty much melted chocolate and cherries on a plate to me. The atmosphere wasn't very much anything, dark walls with mirrors along and long curtains to separate the restaurant from the main street. The tables were too close together, so close that I could hear... More

In order of food, wine, service and environment … the recommended wines per degustation course and service were both special and flawless. The environment was comfortable, modern and cosy. The food courses were appropriately challenging and generally very tasty. Highlights of the 6th week of winter menu were the Spanner crab with almond Gazpachio, Smoked eel, Bass Grouper, Holly Goat,... More

A colleague had raved about this restaurant, and took me there for dinner one evening. I always go for the degustation menu in fine dining restaurants, and no exception here. Also with wine pairing. First of all, the restaurant was completely empty besides two other tables. We had a 8.30 reservation, so it should have been throbbing on arrival. But... More

I believe to fully enjoy this experience you should leave any food hang ups at the door. A self confessed picky eater I decided to put dislikes aside,for example eel was in the set menu - I would normally pass but I have to say I didn't dislike it. We had the matching wine and at the end of the... More

I am so disappointed. I am a huge fan of Pei Modern, so dinner last week at Marque fell flat. The restaurant was located in a shop front, which provides the interesting view of the homeless peering in over their shopping trolleys whilst diners tuck into their degustation. Our waiter was very friendly. Then he delivered food to the wrong... More

The ambience was not great as we dined mid week and there were only 2 tables of 2. Luckily, we enjoy eachothers company, as there was little music or ambience at all. The food was interesting and original but lacked flavour and substance. Whilst I'm a fan of modern interpretation, it was all a little too 'try hard' and didn't... More

There is very little negative to say about Marque, but they seem to lack a wow factor that would encourage us to return. We attended for their Friday lunch menu (good value at $45 for three courses) with the intention of returning for dinner if suitably impressed. Service was attentive, professional, but a little cold. Pacing was good, but, when... More

We had dinner for 4 on a Saturday night. The restaurant is modern with nicely dimmed lighting & comfortable seating. They don't give you the menu till the end of the meal so if you want to know what's being served in your degustation have a look at the menu online or it'll be a surprise. They also charge $5...
