My wife and I love this place, and so do many of our friends. The service is impecable, just terrific, however it can on occasion feel almost stuffy and overbearing. The wine steward, Jonathan, is a scream, he is very entertaining. The food is simply outstanding, classic French dishes mixed with some Italian and other European dishes. The wine list is extensive, as you would expect, and some of the prices will take your breath away. Speaking of, the prices. Better cash in some of your stock options before saddling up the horse to come here. is it worth it? Hmmm, probablly, there's really no place else in DC that does it as well as Marcels. A great place for romantic dinners, small parties, etc. Also, come here for an early pre-theater dinner before heading over to the Kennedy Center, and they will have their driver take you in their Lincoln Town Car, and then you can taxi it back to pick up your car after the show. The bar is not the kind of place where you hang out, it's more of a pit stop while you wait for your table or your friends to arrive.
