We had family visiting from out of town and they had picked this restaurant as a trendy place to try from online. We made our reservations and arrived on time and were immediately seated. After browsing the menu we were advised by the waiter to slim down our orders as the portions were quite large. No issues with the appetizers,... More

3rd try at this place to have a nice evening out. NOT! Food was cold, Overpriced items. The house white white tasted like box wine.

We love stopping in here and having a few drinks, they have a great selection. Their dinner menu is a tad pricey but all well prepared. The classy atmosphere really makes this place for us.

High expectations for a place that is shooting high. Creative menu and tight seating, quite loud. Food was spotty, some on some off. they pride themselves on home made pastas, but the al dente was al flowery. waiter seemed offended we made that point, but the chef agreed and the second batch was fine. Risotto was excellent.

I really wanted to like this place more, but it's just not that good. While the service was friendly, the decor was cheap and minimalist and not inviting, the atmosphere loud, and the menu/food items a mess (average at best) and a bit pricey for what it was. Clever cocktails were the only real draw. Not likely to return.

My friend and I had dinner there this week. She ordered the Geoduck Chowder and I ordered the Wild Boar. The food was fresh, excellently prepared, tasty, and unique (see picture below). The service was also exemplary, we were greeted with a complimentary appetizer, toasted bread with the edges removed (like served in England), and a house dessert. We also... More

Marrow is an intense little space, that is truly focused on THE FOOD! The cocktail selections are equally sophisticated to pair with the no-nonsense menu. There is not a bite of wasteful fluff anywhere to be found. Every bite holds meaning. The Chef/Owner actually comes around to check on patrons and inquire as to their satisfaction. He is as intense... More

Since the sale of this once OUTSTANDING eatery a year ago, we've been hoping for a smooth transition of it's greatness by new ownership. Sadly this is NOT happening. The food quality is similar as the previous sous chef is now running the kitchen but still not the same innovative TOP quality and bizarrely interesting food choices of the past.... More
