I was surprised to see the negative experiences that others have had.
I live nearby, and have never had a bad experience.
In my experience, the quality and service are both excellent, and to the previous reviewers, I suggest that if a server overreacts to an expired drivers’ license, ask for the manager – or if you aren’t satisfied by the food, why not send it back and try something else, rather than feeling taken advantage of?
Yes, the prices are high, but consequently I usually go there for lunch. One can’t-miss selection is the seared ahi sandwich, which comes with fries but I usually substitute a salad with balsamic vinaigrette. The tuna is sashimi grade, and the sauce is amazing.
The wine list is beyond extensive, huge variety – and the Gruet sparkling wine (recommended) is reasonably priced
And I HAVE to mention their signature dessert, called “Bananas for Sunday” (or is it Sundae?). Hands down one of the top 3 desserts I’ve ever tasted – unbelievable! Caramelized bananas, with fresh fudge, raspberry compote. and butterscotch, sugared pecans, and three flavors of ice cream. Mmmm – words cannot describe the experience!
So try Marcello’s for yourself – in my opinion, you’ll be glad you did!
