Why was I ever even there? – The food at Marquet was remarkable, but not in a good way. It was remarkably bad. The texture and the taste both were sub-par, both on my own and my mistress's dish. She had a decent sandwich for lunch there one day and I was free when she wanted to go for dinner. I was extremely disappointed. The staff was nice but extremely slow, and when they finally brought me my food I wished they hadn't. Avoid this place. Maybe it really is good for lunch. Or maybe she's crazy.
Just the right "little place" – Brazil meets Paris, in the food and the service. Quiet, charming, relaxed and superb in every way. Try it.
Best brunch in the Village – Maquet is the best option for brunch in the village. The food is terrific, the service is quick and the restaurant feels like a pretty cafe. Make sure to make a reservation because it fills up quickly.
STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS – twhat a pathetic attempt at a breakfast joint. Poor service, and cold, stale croissants and bitter coffee are the highlights!!!!
But here is a bit of advice for the pompous arrogant wait staff... when a customer calls you over to tell you that his well done egg white omelete is still raw in the middle, and shows you the egg literally running off the plate, dont be a moron and tell him that he had TWO (as opposed to one) bites so it can not be remade or removed from the check.
you are the most pathetic excuse for a restaurant ever. and now hopefully more people will avoid your restaurant like the plague.
Wonderful! – I went there for brunch today, and the food was spectacular. The restaurant was crowded, but luckily we didn't have to wait for a table. Croissants were given with our meal and they were fantastic. You definitely have to check this place out! As for the service, we had no problems, and in fact our waitress was very attentive and quick.
Very Good Food !!! – I've been to Marquet for Breakfast & Lunch, and last week I stop it by, because I heard that they were serving dinner, so I decided to check out.
They changed a little the decoration, the place is full of arts, the walls have paints from different artists, and some are for sale, overall was a very pleasant atmosphere.
We order a bottle of Rioja wine, delicious.....For appetizer I order the Pasteis filled with Goat cheese & Toasted Pinenuts...very crispy and light, and for main course I had the Buttenut Squash Risotto with Crisp Duck Confit & Pinot Noir Sauce...Brilliant.
Dessert we all had the Famous Bread Pudding with Bananas Flambee, to die for.
We're all very pleased.
I higly reccomend. And I'll be back
Shockingly bad service and average food – The food was average for a brunch joint. My girlfriend's omelette was fine if a bit gooey, and my oatmeal was also fine, except that the strawberries that they put on top were not de-stemmed. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but try de-stemming a strawberry in a bowl of oatmeal without using your hands -- it's impossible. The service was utterly abysmal. Our coffee and water were never refilled, our food came out 10 minutes apart (!), we were not given bread though the couple next to us was, we asked twice for our check and when it came, they forced us to pay the tip in cash so they could get out of paying taxes! Needless to say, we are never going back.
Worst service of my life. – First, my omelette came to the table. Ten minutes later, my dining partner's meal still wasn't on the table. I took a bite of the omelette. It had the wrong ingredients in it. I sent it back -- and five minutes later, the correct omelette was on the table. Alas, my dining partner's meal still wasn't to be seen (neither was the waitress). We asked about it, and 10 minutes later, his oatmeal showed up. At this point, I asked for a coffee & water refill, too, since our cups had been empty since BEFORE the first omelette made its appearance. Once we'd finished eating, it was another 15 minutes before we saw someone who would bring us the check - and after running my credit card, the waitress had the audacity to write "cash only" in the "tip" portion of the receipt!
Judge for yourselves, but be warned.
Eat (and eat)! – The food and pastries in this place are amazing. Come hungry!
