This FANTASTIC restaurant located near the George Town area of DC offers one of the most exciting and creative French menu's that I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Our Head Captain for dinner was Jonathan Crayne - you should definitely ensure that he assist's you. He is friendly, warm, inviting and really made the dinner very memorable!!

The food - where to begin!!! This restaurant offers a menu divided into seven unique courses. You are able to choose anywhere between 4 to all 7 of the courses if you like. I highly recommend the Scallops in Course 3 (i believe) and the Cheese Course!!! Outstanding!

If you love French cuisine and don't mind paying for one of the best meals you will ever have, do not miss this spot! You will be disappointed if you do!!!

This is a very special place. From the elegant ambience, the superb service and the delicious food everything is top notch. I can't remember exactly what everyone ate, however no one was in the slightest bit disappointed. I can't say enough about the special way in which their clientele is taken care of from beginning to end. Stay, linger and enjoy what Marcel's does so well - everything!

If you want to splurge, this is one of the best in Washington D.C. The dim lighting ambiance is perfect for anniversaries and dates.
I had a 5 course meal and every course was just wonderful! I remember having the maine lobster papardelle, boudin blanc and snails....every dish was amazing!
It's expensive but definitely worth paying for.

Love the rustic look...Food is really good but the Souffle is definitely the star :) Be prepared to open the wallet though :)
