“Thanks for the recommendation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2009

Thanks to my friends for recommending this restaurant! Wow, were we ever pleasantly surprized!!! The sushi at Marc's is fantastic. I highly recommend the fatty tuna and the tobiko. Yum! The only problem I have with Marc's is that it's farther from my house than other sushi/Japanese restaurants, and they've spoiled me for all the others! Highly recommended!!

“Great food, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2009

Marc has assembled a tasty menu that offers something for everyone. The seafood is way above the usual standard in this out-of-touch town. And the sushi is outstanding. Careful, the sushi portions are generous - you don't want to order too much sushi and not try one of the entrees.

The staff is friendly and attentive. And Marc is always right behind the sushi counter, ready to greet and answer questions.

Be prepared to wait. This place has quickly become a local favorite. Patrons stack up but it's worth the wait. Try lunch for an alternative to the dinner crowd.

“My favorite place to eat in Rockford!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2008

I thoroughly enjoy the food there. You get a lot of food for the money. Especially compared to sushi places in Chicago or the suburbs and the Marc's is better than the places there. The food is the best in town. And we are always served as soon as we walk in. The sushi is prepared right in front of you and you can see the care and pride that is taken in preparation. The kitchen also serves delicious food. The best fried rice around!!

“Great place, food, and help..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2008

Real nice place. Clean, a little on the small side, but that's o-k.. The gal at the bar took our order and offered her opinions which I liked. After our sashimi and sushi arrived, the owner/itamae walked over and inquired how it was. Later on he came back and gave further suggestions on what he was proud of. I will surely return soon and will actually let Marc choose what i shall dine on that day. He just seems to be that sort of guy, looks you right in the eye and shows pride in his food without being arrogant. I think it's a nice idea to blend sushi and sashimi alongside entree's that appeal to the non sushi lovers. That way a couple with differing tastes can enjoy a real gem such as this one. BTW.. a LOT of carryout for a Saturday at noon!!!! So fresh!!
