My wife and I have been eating at the Marc on special date nights for a few years, but we finally had a meal at the Chef's Table...a large granite table off the side in the kitchen. We were presented a wonderful five course meal specially prepared for us by Executive Chef Antonio Campolio. When I said I don't eat sea food, but my wife does, Antonio said not to worry, he'd make us happy. Indeed he did. The first course was scallops for my wife and a wonderful original tortellini for me. Every course was a surprise and better than the last, and every course was perfectly matched with some wine presented by the manager, Dan McCaffrey (he even brought two different wines to properly match our different first courses). We had met these gentlemen previously, and always enjoyed their company, but it was a special treat to be able to converse with them privately, and Antonio was especially generous with his time, explaining the dishes and answering our questions. We're nearing our 16th anniversary and this was the best meal either of us has ever had, anywhere.
I recommend the Marc for their regular menu (the Buffalo Filet is amazing), the monthly paired wine menu, or the special Chef's Table. An amazing experience in any manner.

We ate there last weekend. Had the Zerba Cellars Tasting Menu dinner with the hubby. The chef was excellent and the food was outstanding. I loved the scallops and the tenderloin was out of this world tender. The only mediocre food was the smoked wild boar; it was tough and the Boston cream pie; it was very dry with hardly any cream. The wine from Zerba Cellars was outstanding, especially the 2009 Reserve Petite Syrah. The service was great too. Overall we loved our dinner.

I attended with my wife about two weeks ago, and was impressed with the quality and ambience of the room. We were in the booth next to the kitchen entrance. The manager Mark was on top of his game with his dynamic personality. Our server (Anthony?) had his first night on the job and was the consummate professional with an excellent knowledge of the menu and pairing wines. I would have never known this was his first night. The other female server was attentive and very proficient. The food was superb and well presented with a very reasonable price point. Job well done.

A great dining experience. Service is wonderful, everyone is friendly and helpful. You are never hurried, food is prepared and served at your pace. The local salmon on the menu this month is to die for. Yummy!
