Made reservation for 6:15 PM and was seated promptly. We had an amazing dinner here while on vacation. We stared with the fresh mushroom soup, cape may salts and Pasta with crabmeat and gorgonzola. Next, a Super fresh salad of tomatoes, cukes, etc. Dinner entrees were Shrimp and Salmon - sooo good, Veal Chop scallopine with arugula salad - fantastic... More

I will keep this short since I already reviewed somewhere else. I was served RAW, inedible salmon. Absolutely disgusting and I left more than 2/3 of it. Waitress did not say a word when she took my plate. Husband's pasta dish was dry and flavorless. All this for incredibly high prices.

Specializing in Italian-American cuisine with a modern twist, Marie Nicole's is a fine choice for a special evening out, but it can be pricey. This time, however, we tried the three-course menu available for $35 anytime or $25 before 6 pm. With soup or a delectable Caesar salad, a choice of three entrees, and dessert (we had the delicious creme... More

This restaurant has indoor & outdoor dining with white linen tablecloths and napkins. It started out poorly, someone took our drink order and then disappeared, my husband had to go inside to fine out what happened to him. It turned out that he wasn't even our waiter, they sent our waitress out who was lovely and said, let's start all... More

So, my wife ordered the flatbread for an appetizer which she loved and I agreed. I ordered the mussels and they were priced at MP at $14 for 6 which was the going rate. But the waiter did not tell me the price, which he should have which wouldn't have changed my mind. The weird thing was it didn't come... More

It was a pleasurable change from beach and pub fare. Four adults plus a (well-behaved) boy. We had a reservation and were seated immediately on the inside patio. The restaurant easily accommodated gluten-free needs. We have been to Marie Nicole's several times now and it never disappoints. Good for couples, good for families, good for a night out at the...

We own a condo in the Crest for 15 yrs and were excited when we first found the only "fine dining" on the island. Early experiences were good but the last 3-4 yrs have been very disappointing. We hung in hoping it would revive but recent dining was the pits. $36 Kobe filet was sliced in strips and barely warm.... More

Fabulous food! Service really good, but not great. We were seated promptly for a 7:30pm reservation. Things started off slowly because of a staffing miscommunication. The waitress that was supposed to wait on us took the table behind and we sat for more than 10 minutes before our actual waiter attended to us for the initial greeting and drink order.... More

After some arm twisting by a friend, I went back to Marie Nicoles after a many year absence because its food and service had declined so low. Well, not any more! What a great surprise and wonderful dining experience. The service was timely, knowledgeable and helpful. The menu has been changed to reflect the "Grille" which has been added to... More
