“Asian restaurant--great setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

First, this is not an American restaurant. The food is Japanese probably with a bit of Americana involved but close to authentic Japanese. We avoided the place after we moved here because some reviews said "not that great" and it was presented as expensive. Well I am really irritated that we waited. Yes, it is not an inexpensive place; but every penny we spent was worth it. The small wine list was particularly well-chosen and we were very happy to see some half bottles. The bar is a full bar and while they don't do all those speciality cocktails, they appear capable of doing whatever you want. Generous pours as well. The food--we were impressed--we started with a shared pair of scallop nigiri--the downside--we wanted more. It was fresh, fresh, fresh. Wow! For the entree we shared a bento box (like NO other and far better--the lightest duck rolls, intense lobster cakes, a dumpling thingy that was divine--and huge walnut shrimp close to perfection. The seafood--mixed seafood--large pieces, lots of variety and the best tasting broth especially when absorbed into the dry roasted ramen. We were lucky--we got a yummy assorted of muchi with ice cream. I even love the stuff in the supermarket freezer, but these were on another plane. Just loved this place. Dreamed of the dinner all night and mused about it all day at work. Worth the trip from wherever you are.

“Poor”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Despite a good Maitre D, the food was generic and ordinary. Our dessert was poor and in general the food was very overpriced for the quality. Warning, if you cannot tolerate MSG, do not eat here, the food was loaded with the stuff.

“Excellent Food, Lovely Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

The food was great, very nicely presented, very tasty. The waiter was attentive. The views were lovely. The hotel seemed mostly empty mid week - we had the restaurant and the outdoor fireplaces later mostly to ourselves. It is expensive. Portions are adequate to allow for appetizer and entry and have room for dessert (which was an awesome chocolate thing).

“What a difference QUALITY makes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

We had sushi (although there are lots of other options on the menu)- and it was the best I have ever had! I was hesitant to have sushi in this land locked oasis- but apparently they import it daily from all over the world - and WOW! Truly the best sushi I have ever had!
We also had a server who made the entire evening so enjoyable- his expertise made this culinary adventure a 10+!

“If there were a food heaven on earth this place would be it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

The flavors are just outstanding, I want to try everything on the menu. I just can't believe there can be anything better than the last thing I had and it always is! The Crunchy Eel with the barbecue is incomparable. I would eat it everyday. The Bento box with the tempura shrimp sauce was a Wow! Deserts....mochi and sake sorbet are a perfect end to an always perfect evening. If truly great food is not enough of an attraction the waitstaff at Marssa are exceptional and very knowledge. Numerous times I asked for and took the recommendation of my server, never to be disappointed. I'm hard pressed to think of a better dining experience.
