Wonderful breakfast

Love this place so much. Had the hash with poached eggs. Best hash ever. Don't leave without taking home some treats. The chocolate pudding is amazing. Any of the baked goods are outstanding and their granola bars are amazing. We loved our server, Joy. She was a Joy!!! Extremely fun... read more

A crowed and confusing place, loud with mid-eastern type food. The grape leaves needed more lemon and the bread was good. Dipping the bread in the humus seemed like a nice touch while waiting for the main dish.

I've been to Marie Catrib's quite a few times and am always pleased with my experience. The wait staff is always friendly and quirky, and the food is always so good! They have many vegan and gluten-free dishes if that's what you're into. I recommend the Sergio Leone sandwich with a side of potatoes! The only downside is the long... More

The wait staff was incredibly friendly, helpful and accommodating -- oh, and they also offer coffee while you're waiting for a table. The food was creative, tasty with generous portions. Parking might be tight since this is a popular place so you might have to find someplace along the street.

This restaurant is everything the other reviews said it was and more. Great food and the deserts are off the scale great. I wish we had done desert take out as well.

We go here whenever we're in GR. somehow this place manages to be cozy and open and airy at the same time. Food and service are impeccable. Try to go on off hours, as this place is packed at lunch and dinner times. But go!

They have gluten-free sweet potato pancakes that were delicious. Also the Marie's seasoned potatoes are super good too. I love the honey butter that comes with the pancakes.

So I had to see what this place was all about on my trip last week to GR. I'm going to be spending some time there over the next several months and will check them all out. I slipped in here for lunch on a Monday, a small line was formed but I was able to sit right away at... More

Unless you are a regular at this establishment don't count on getting any special service or recommendations on menu items. I finally asked another guest who was seated by the door what the restaurant protocol was for seating. They recommended the counter which I promptly did. Wait staff assumes you are familiar with all of the menu options.

If love were an appropriate emotion to have for a restaurant, I'd say I love this place! Anything on the menu is sure to please and likely impress. Only dig two of their desserts; chocolate pudding and chocolate crumble (get it warmed).
