Our first time here...for a late lunch. My wife had the Seared Tuna Salad Nicoise which she loved. I had the Signature "ABQ Uptown Dip", which is shaved prime rib on a toasted baqetini with green chiles, caramelized onions, 3 cheese blend & beef au jus for dipping......I loved the sandwich except for the 3 cheese blend, which almost ruined it......the so called cheese was a loose and oozy mess all over the sandwich and tasted artificial, not like real cheeses. Other than that we enjoyed the atmosphere and good service.

We ate here the first night of our 5 day trip. It was the best, and most expensive, meal we had during the trip. I found the prices to be fair and I very much enjoyed the seasonal steak special. Also, the bread that comes with dinner warrants mentioning - delicious!

We love Marcellos. They have a great, well informed, customer focused staff and they offer great food. Try the elk or petite filet with sauteed mushrooms or for true decadence the foie gras. There is a yummy ginger cocktail on the menu now too. Try Marcellos, there are many things on the menu at all kinds of price ranges - their burgers are amazing too! Its not a kids restaurant, but we took our 18 month old and sat on the patio, they were very accommodating.

Six different people ordered and the waiter brought one check. We asked him to split it up and he, Topher, gave us a lot of attitude amd suggested that we should have told him that we wanted the check spilt at the beginning of our ordering. He also took about 15 minutes to finally fix the check. I immediately cancelled a future reservation on the way out. The food was actually pretty good, but I will never go there again because the waiter was so rude.

Marcellos was open on this Mothers Day Sunday and we had planned for a wonderful meal together. We had an 11:00am reservation and it wasn't too busy. The menu was limited but the choices were good. My wife ordered a green chile cheese burger to be cooked well done, and two others ordered theirs to be cooked medium-well. After more than 30 minutes after ordering, our meals arrived and the burgers were near rare to medium rare. We sent back the burgers and 15 minutes later the server returned and they were freshly warmed to medium rare...again!

We decided not to risk it and ordered different items which were perfect!! The manager and server was very frustrated with the kitchen too. The manager adjusted the bill which was the right thing to do.

So why is the title of this review titled, "Disappointed"? Marcellos has good food and good service, just don't order a burger!!
