Breakfast or lunch, business or pleasure, Marie Catrib's staff does a great job, which is why they are "off the charts" popular. I eat there at least 1/2 a month and usually have something different each time. This trip was their 3 salad sampler. Lebanese potato salad, hummus, babbagnnoush(sp?), with warm pita bread and water. Even sat at the counter.

This place is amazing! The food, the people, the cafe, it all makes it great. The stuffed French toast is great... But you may not be able to eat the rest of the day :)

Just not as consistent as previous. Sadly, since the departure of beloved Maria. Quiche is meh. Quality seems a bit off yet hopeful that it was just the day. Staff is always personable.

My self and 3 friends had lunch at Marie Catrib's today. It was fabulous. I had the salmon sandwich and it was cooked to perfection. The wait staff was very cheery and helpful. The owner was so nice. We appreciated the owners thoughtfulness very much. We will be recommending Marie's to our friends in the Classic Car Club who are... More

Went to this restaurant for weekend lunch during my son's college orientation. Yup, it was full. There was a pretty long line. I came by myself, so I only had to wait 5 minutes to sit at the bar. The menu was not your very typical menu so even if it was a bit confusing, I was pleasantly surprised. I... More

We celebrated a birthday here last week for supper, and the place was very crowded. It felt like the 2 neighboring tables were connected, and conversation was not very fun because of it. The food was unique -- one had the eggplant special with marinara sauce, the other had the quinoa/sweet potato burger on a special bun. The eggplant dish... More

I went here with my fiance for a special meal. I ordered the Larry David, and it was delicious! It was a huge portion, half of which I took back home for lunch the next day. The burger was moist and flavorful, stuffed with plenty of spinach. All in all a very healthy, and absolutely delicious meal. This place is... More

The food was very good and original. I ate on a Friday at 2pm and it was crowded. This translated into very slow, and many apologies about the wait. Nice staff though. The lunch comes with entertainment as the place is full of hipsters that think they are in downtown New York. Fun to watch. very good food.

When I went to Marie Catrib's, I was struck by their eclectic style and menu. The food is simply perfect and their chocolate pudding basically brought me to tears. I had the great privilege of meeting the current owner: Marie's son. He is an outstanding person with a real passion for food, supporting the local economy, and environmental sustainability. Marie's... More

This is a popular neighborhood restaurant. My daughter and I dined for the first time. The special that evening was vegetarian quesadillas and they were selling like hotcakes!! I selected the sweet potato quinoa burger which was good but not outstanding. It was served with very good tomato chutney and a dill pickle which was definitely outstanding! It tasted fresh... More
