“Chaucer's & the Marienbad are one and the same”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

We were a bit confused as to Chaucer's and the Marienbad, but it turns out the Marienbad is right next door and is more of the formal dining establishment. We ate at Chaucer's, which is actually the bar, and a very relaxed atmosphere. No smoking is allowed in the bar, which was nice. The service was great, the food was good and the menu provided choices not found in other restaurants - including Hungarian and eastern European dishes. Overall it was good! We'd eat there again.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

The owner is a blast! She will tell you what you should order, compliment you on your appearance, ask you why you leave food on your plate, and describe any dish you may be unsure leaving you in no doubt that you HAVE to try it! Some (younger?) people may find her overwhelming but, wow! I want to be just like her when I grow up. Excellent food and great value.

“A little bit of Hungary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

If it is a hearty Hungarian dish you want with friendly service this is the place.
Terrific

“A unique experience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

Excellent selection of beer on tap. Well prepared food. interesting building. My latest experience there was for a club Christmas gathering so there was limited menu but everyone was very pleased with their selections (Prime rib and Salmon). We are booking our party at the Marienbad next year too but I'm looking forward to going there for dinner soon.

A quaint and cosy little restaurant, with a sun filled courtyard where you can also enjoy your meal. Good food and lovely atmosphere!
