We've been there twice and both times found the food excellent. Reading the earlier views, perhaps they had growing pains but the "ugly caterpillar" is now a beautiful butterfly, well worth visiting again and again. Yes it's Kosher -- no shrimp or lobster, but more than made up for the the range of choices beyond those in many Chinese restaurants: chicken, beef, duck, lamb, veal, each in a variety of Chinese settings with excellent taste. The soup was souped. We look forward to working (eating) our way through the menu Some of my guests can be quite picky but they ate with gusto and want to return as well. It's not a large place so reservations are suggested. Yes, the manager has his own approach to "humor" and perhaps that was viewed as rudeness by one of the reviewers, but its not often the manager is circulating around chatting with the guests. We were also impressed by the friendliness of the patrons. We saw a lovely dish being served at the next table and I apologetically asked what it was. The patron immediately offered me a taste.

We've eaten at Marcus's three times and each time we had a problem. The first time was when they first opened and they really did not have their act together. Service was slow and the waiter was brand new and messed up all the orders. The owner came around and was totally obnoxious to us. The second time we were there for lunch and ordered their lunch special. The place was empty so we got fast service. All four of us were satisfied with our choices.The problem came with the bill. We gave the waiter a credit card and he refused to take it, saying no credit cards with lunch specials. There was no indication to this effect either near the counter or no the lunch menu. The third time we were there for dinner. This time it was busier and the owner himself was our server. In the middle of taking our order his cell phone rang and he proceeded to take the call and ignore any questions we had. He was rude and obnoxious again. I doubt we will give this place another chance.
