“A great meal in a beautiful grand hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

The Marc at the Marc Whitman hotel is a lovely restaurant. Try the Chef's table tasting menu,with six courses, accompanied with local wine pairings. Several first courses were light, but well prepared. The 4th course is substantial, and terrific. The final dessert course was decadent. This was a fun experience and well worth the time and $$$. The venue is lovely and speaks of an old time quiet grandeur.

“Not what's it's cracked up to be ! !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

The breakfast buffet was simply Holiday Inn Express all over again. Same scrambled eggs out of a can, same sausage, same potatoes, orange/apple juice out of a machine, Not one single bit of fresh fruit - and this is fruit country and the height of cherry season. No coffee refill service at the table. Certainly glad we did not do lunch or dinner here ! ! On the positive side, elegant, refurbished 1920's hotel.

AGMMWHCC, Manager at Marc Restaurant, responded to this review, July 17, 2014
I am Dan Leeper, the Assistant General Manager at the Marcus Whitman Hotel and Conference Center. Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on your recent dining experience at The Marc Restaurant. You did not enjoy our Hot & Healthy Breakfast, which comes with any of our guest rooms and is included in the price of your stay. It is prepared each morning by our award winning restaurant the Marc. You compared it to a standard offering that any chain would produce. I personally know that the products we use are all fresh, From the eggs and potatoes to the pastries made in our own bake shop, we offer the freshest possible choice available. Just take some time and read what others have written about our breakfast and you will see that your experience was not typical. We sincerely apologize you were not satisfied with your meal. We value you and all of our guests’ feedback, which is why we share all reviews with our employees. We do this to ensure that “exceptional guest experiences for every guest” is upheld to each and every guest.

If you would like to talk more about your experience, please contact me directly (509) 524-5105 or agm@mwhcc.com. Again, thank you for your review.

“A little disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We had been told by locals that this was "the place to go". The atmosphere is nice.......dark and heavy furnishings, like the hotel itself. However the menu selections are very limited. I selected the lamb and my friend had the halibut. Both were tasty but not exceptional. Service was also good but not great. Prices were very high (chicken was $38 and a steak was $48). Suggest checking out the menu online if you are a picky eater or concerned about price.

“Not your typical hotel restaurant fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

This is much better than you would typically find in a hotel restaurant. Unlike the hotel to which it is attached, the ,Marc has modern and adventurous cuisine. Albeit a little price y by Walla Walla standards
