    I’m not a fan of restaurants that require your entire party to be present before you can be seated. Especially when I have a reservation and when there are only two people in my party and the second person is just outside getting our car valeted. It’s just rude and pointless. I almost left at that point but decided to stay. Overall, I was expecting more because I’m a huge fan of Marcus S. The lamb chops were unevenly cooked. One of them was rare although I requested them to be cooked medium.

    This is my third time visiting siting this restaurant. The food is always outstanding. And every time I come, I bring a friend I noticed the price for the buffet went up and there’s still a 20% gratuity fee regardless of the size of the group. Don’t agree with that part. He was extremely hot inside. The restaurant was 81° other than that great experience.

    Brunch was great! Our server Imani was nice, accommodating, and was just a great representation of this establishment. The options for the Sunday brunch buffet were all great, but I really loved the salmon, fried catfish, and cornbread waffle. The ambience was great and it wasn't too loud. I loved the decor and can't wait to return for dinner.
    Marcus Bar & GrilleResponded 4 days ago
    Hi India, We're so glad you enjoyed your brunch experience with us at Marcus Bar & Grille. Imani will be pleased to know she made your visit extra special. It sounds like the salmon, fried catfish, and cornbread waffle were the perfect picks from our Sunday brunch buffet. We're delighted that the ambiance and decor also hit the mark for you! We can't wait to welcome you back for dinner. Best, The Marcus Bar & Grille Restaurant Team

    I have been wanting to visit here for months. I was soo excited to try MBG. When I arrived the hostess was very nice and welcoming. The atmosphere was very nice. I just knew I was in for a Great visit. I went on Sunday Supper night so it was an all you can eat buffet. I thought this was a great way to taste multiple offerings……..I quickly found out that either coming on Sunday was a mistake or the time of my Reservation was a mistake. Just about NONE of the food looked fresh. It al looked like it had been sitting for hours. Most of the food I had was cold, the fried chicken all looked overcooked and burned. The mac & cheese was dry. The balsamic dressing bottle had about a tablespoon of dressing in it. The only things that looked fresh were the ribs, catfish and salmon. It stayed like this for the majority of the hour I was there. The shrimp cocktail was refreshed and the cocktail sauce was amazing. The waffles though were not refreshed while I was there were good. The greens were good, a bit too spicy for me. The fried chicken look over cooled and burned and was cold and not crunchy. the head chef actually came out after i had been there an hour and started to fix the line. He made some fresh fried chicken and I got a piece thinking yess fresh cooked chicken but it still was not crunchy. The Catfish was just ok. Again not crunchy. I all the way pass on the mac and cheese. The corn muffins were ok. The star of everything I ate though was the Salmon! I could eat that all day long. All in all I was disappointed by my visit but I don’t write off a restaurant by one visit. I will try it again but i will go when it is just the regular menu. Service was great. I will try it again and hopefully the food will be better.

    The food on the Sunday Brunch buffet was not the best. Flies were on the platter of boiled shrimp, the fried chicken was soggy, the brisket was very tough and the bartender was out of some ingredients for a limited list of specialty cocktails. Marcus Samuelsson should be ashamed of his Atlanta location!

    The space is nice. Host a little snarky and the food is expensive. In addition the music was so loud you could barely hear your table mates. I would go back but during the week when it’s not so noisy.
