Top Place in GR

High quality food, my wife loved the ambiance, they have great veggie food, clean, friendly, hard parking spaces though.

My main issue with Marie Catrib's is that I've never had less than a 40 minute wait despite arriving 20 minutes before they open or arriving at a non-peak time on a weekday. They know they will be busy, yet the management has not expanded the facilities to accommodate this frustration. This is why I rate them 4 stars instead... More

We at at Marie Catrib's for lunch today. Was on my list and surprisingly easy to get to. Our arrival for a late lunch meant that the wait was minimal. We ate outside. Our server, Katie, was very accommodating. The menu lists lots of vegetarian options -- imagine three veggie burgers, plus other fabulous sounding things! Everything is made in... More

Stopped here with a buddy on a Friday at 2 p.m. where we luckily got a table right away. A nice beard farmer seated us promptly while our waitress, Sam, did a great job with lots a great cheerfulness. Since the menu print is quite small, and I wanted to break away from old standbys, I asked for a recommendation;... More

I would highly recommend Marie Catrib's for anyone looking for a place to eat. Prices are reasonable and the food is great. I would highly suggest their chocolate pudding for dessert.

It lived up to all the hype.....the only thing about a great place is a long wait, So if you are in a hurry you might want to go somewhere else or plan accordingly - as it will take awhile. But if you are a fan of unique sandwiches and love fresh deli options this the place to go to... More

Loved the food and the unusual choices. Excellent service and friendly staff. Had the AMO salad - once you have it you'll figure out what the letters stand for... On the pricey side.

Saturday evening visit and it wasn't very clean. Beverage select very limited and food was so-so. We ordered 5 sandwiches and paid $70; no dries, chips or desserts - just sandwiches and pop. Wow!

Today, I stopped in for lunch. Since the restaurant had a 30 min wait, I decided to go to the deli for something. Jason recommended the turkey reuben. Boy, am I glad I did! I ordered it with the dark gluten-free bread. It was better than he said it was going to be!!! Thank you for the recommendation Jason!

I had read other reviews and so had high expectations, but I was not disappointed. As my husband and I were sharing our meal we talked about how we might be able to work in a return visit during the two days we will be in Grand Rapids. The gluten-free bread option on my quinoa and sweet potato patty was... More
