“Great food, lousy service”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

we are regulars here and always love the food. We ordered off the special menu and again found the food to be fantastic. Unfortunately, it was ruined by the bad waitress. She was rude, unfriendly and unprofessional. A waitress should never complain about anything to do with the restaurant. This was a holiday dinner with friend and it was the first time. We were embarrassed since we had raved about this place!

Five of us had dinner at Marchand's post Thanksgiving. The service and food were excellent. The dining room is also awesome. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough! Enjoy!

“Excellent breakfast in a beautiful room.”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

This restaurant is incredibly beautiful - you feel that you are back in the 1920's. As an anniversary of the restoration of this historic hotel, the murals in the Marchand are being restored. The breakfast items are delicious and many are unique; we had breakfast her four times and look forward to returning.

“Nice atmosphere. Good food.”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

My only comment is that I didn't think they had a LOT of choices for dinner. I had the spinach ravioli which REALLY should be renamed because the primary part of that dish is a very ample serving of large, delicious scallops.
