I got the bur rata and tomato appetizer which is the best I have ever had and the scallops. Ask to be seated outside. Take a wrap. MUST make reservations.

What a place out on the patio overlooking the pacific. The wine was fantastic and the food was amazing. I has the bouillabaisse and the halibut. A night to remember for sure.

Mar'sel has a great view of the ocean. Go on a warm evening which is pretty rare here. They have outside seating with heaters and some glass for windbreaks. The interior is very nice but the view is still the reason to go. Summer is also important or you'll be looking into a dark abyss for dinner. The service is... More

Put this restaurant on your list of must eats. The food selection seems like it is very conscious of seasonal vegetables. Each dish seems to be put together with most care. We enjoyed a variety of dishes at our table. All were delicious. The views of course were beautiful. We were there on a Friday evening and I loved sitting... More

8pm reservation. Sat outside one row from "A" seating next to edge at 815pm. Very busy night. English muffin bread served warm and enjoyed by all who are ok with carbs. Endive ceasar should not be called a ceasar. Not much flavor and basically ugly looking. Charred broccolini over oiled, spilled onto tablecloth, cooked properly but weird dish. Loup de... More

Beautiful restaurant and fantastic views but it stops there. We had a 7:30 reservation and the waiter told us how fantastic the octopus and the bone in ribeye was and then proceeded to tell us they were out of both. We waited a long time for both courses and the service was mediocre.

This is the second time I have eaten at Mar'sel. The first time we brought a business contact for dinner. The price was outrageously priced and the food mediocre. This time I brought my mother for a themed lunch. The price was made even more outrageous by the blatantly horrible food we were served. My mother's Loco Moco - a... More

Had four of our dinners here during a five night stay at the luxury Terranea resort. Met the new chef de cuisine the first night and was fully thrilled by this charming restaurant. They serve delicious fish dishes, have a good wine carte and for my sons of 12 and 15 the burger was the best ever. And all combined... More

I really enjoyed the all you can eat seafood buffet. I like the fact that they did not just sit the crab legs out to allow them to get cold on the bar. Every time we finished a plate a hot plate of crab legs came from the back.
