Avoid!! Not only we waited over an hour for our dishes to be served , the food is just not good in any way & same for the cocktails. It seems as if there is no chef in the kitchen, I have never seen such poorly executed dishes in my life.
The rooftop was nice but that’s it. Might be better at night for a drink but don’t waste your time & money on brunch .
We ordered the happy hour oysters and mussels as well the wine. The place is very nice but the prices got the quality of the food it’s to high. The oysters were taste kind of strange. I have oysters from many places but that was the fist time felt like not real oysters. They told me they are from CT, but no name than I have no idea what they were but I did not like it. The mussels were ok but nothing what I will order again. Very small portion. Vine was very good but expensive $10 for happy hour deal.
I would go back but maybe just for a drink. No food. I did not like it.
It was a nice dinner but the wait time was about long between appetizer and meal. Drinks took time to be made. Food
Always great service and great food! The ambiance is good too! Try to sit on the roof if you can. There's no real view of anything, but it's still a nice atmosphere.
The food was super salty, excessively!!!
Wait time for food in an empty restaurant close hour, is unreasonable.
Service staff is great and attentive.
Willing to give it another try
Cold food. Small portions. Wet risotto. Ridiculously loud music.
After a rocky, unfriendly greeting the manager finally took care of us. Food was superb!
Everything was fantastic!
lovely restaurant. What a terrific waitstaff. The people couldn’t have been nicer. Food was delicious and nice wine list. A little out of the way, but worth the trip
Definitely recommend this place. There were some hiccups with service, but I will not complain because we should support restaurants, especially in these trying times. The food was delicious and the chocolate pot de creme was fantastic! We will definitely be back.
Service, food, drinks and dessert were very good.
There is construction going on so there is not view or ambiance.
The only estrange issue is the bill comes with an administrative fee charge. The explanation was not clear if this is tips for the servers. We tipped them with cash as they provided good service.
Grilled Octopus, mussels with chorizo sauce, grill beef and the lemon mini cake were delicious.
Arrived for an 8 PM reservation, hostess said it would be a few minutes for our table.
8:15 - she offers us a seat to wait saying it will be another 5-10 minutes.
8:25 - a manager tells us it will be just 10 more minutes, a table was being cleared
8:45 - I speak with the hostess asking what the issue was as we’ve been waiting for 45 minutes. They said people aren’t leaving the tables and we are backed up.
9 - I speak to the manager again, he offers us complimentary drinks, and says he will comp appetizers.
9:05 - we are finally seated. Drinks and apps come out. Then no one comes around for another 45 minutes. We had to ask about entrees which finally came out at 10:15.
During this the staff brought out a few wrong plates, food we didn’t order, and a wrong bill. The manager ended up only comping our drinks, and not the apps like he said he would.
At that point I was just happy to pay and leave. The food is great but they were so off their game tonight, I’m not sure I would go back. I was taking out friends to dinner and have talk this place up so much, and it was just a let down.
Thank you for the feedback. First of all, I want to sincerely apologize for not meeting your expectations and the Bar Marseille standard during your visit. During one-off situations such as the one you experienced our staff do their best to treat every guest with the highest degree of hospitality and attention that they can. We once again apologize for the situation. We hope you can give us another chance to make it up to you.
Food is great, staff and service was wonderful. Live music on Fridays is a bonus.
Really loved the band they had this Friday night that created a fantastic vibe.
We dined on the rooftop. They had an INCREDIBLE trio of world-class Broadway musicians playing a mix of pop arranged brilliantly. Will be back next Friday! Food was very good.
Thank you so much for the review! We are so happy you enjoyed the live music entertainment and our Chef's creations. We look forward to having you in again!
Wonderful food and service. A tiny bit loud but very bistro-like experience. Second floor deck would be great on a warm evening. Excellent experience!
Thanks for so much for your review! With the summer weather approaching do visit us again on our beautiful rooftop!
We loved the food. The service was great. We were a little disappointed in the ambiance. Unfortunately there is a lot of construction going on across the way so our view was of the empty lots. Because of the weather (not their fault) we couldn't enjoy their rooftop.
Place was amazing! Super cozy with that beach vibe. We went for dinner on Friday evening and surprise- live music! Fantastic. Dominique and all bussers took an exceptional care of us and food was deliscious,thank you for making this experience unique.
Will definitely come back for more dinners :)
Thanks for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed our live Friday night band, the energy at Bar Marseille is unbeatable. We hope to see you again soon!
Food very good. Wait staff were the best I have come across in quite a while.
Thank you so much for your review, our staff are very passionate about upholding the best service at Bar Marseille. We hope to see you again!
We love this place. Great food, atmosphere, and service
Lovely brunch out in the top deck area was spacious & pleasant.
Thank you so much for the review! Our rooftop is unlike anything in the Rockaways and we are so glad you enjoyed dining al fresco. We hope to see you again!
1st time there and everyone @ Bar Marseilles was so lovely and attentive and all our choices were very delicious! We will definitely be back!!
Ellie, thanks so much for your review! We are so happy you enjoyed our ambience and attentive service. Come again soon and try our summer menu!
The food was excellent but the view is really not good. The pictures on Google maps were kind of misleading. There is no view of the ocean even though the person on the phone said you could see it from the rooftop. Anyway, the food is kind of pricey but it’s worth it!
Thanks for so much for your review. We apologize that you didn't get the full experience you were hoping for. Our rooftop is nothing like what's in the Rockaways but we can not guarantee a full view of the ocean, but a snip bit :) We hope you come again and experience sunset on the rooftop so we can make it up to you.
Nice experience. I’d like the rooftop experience. Good ambience
NewYorkNewbie- Thank you for the notes. We hope to see you again soon, the rooftop never disappoints. -James
The pea and ricotta salad was outstanding. The onion soup was good, the mussels and bouillabaisse were ok.
The place was loud and energetic but not what I would call a relaxed French Bistro vibe where I would want to linger; so not what I expected from the descriptions I had read. It was a Saturday night however, and the DJ was good and added to the energy of the restaurant.
The staff was eager and active but I felt a little rushed.
I would go back to try the $1 oysters on Wednesdays but not for a weekend dinner.
ImpressMe- Thank you for the review. It is upsetting to hear we did not live up to your high standards and hope you will come back to give us another try. We do have a lively crowd on the weekends so please visit us mid week if you're looking to relax. Hope to see you soon. -James
Great addition to rockaways restaurant scene. The food was good. Our bottle of wine was not chilled properly. We had a noisy table next to us in which we had to speak over. The service was excellent.
Overall, nice evening. Would go back again.
AlisonS- Thank you for the 5 star review and noting the great service. We hope the warm weather brings you back soon. Stay well- James
Decor - minimalist
Ambiance - none
Food - very good
Service - excellent
I ordered bouillabaisse. Unfortunately the fish and the shrimp were both very bad (not fresh!!). I told the waitstaff that I could not eat this dish. Without any hesitation on their part they removed the dish and replaced it. No questions asked. We were hoping to seat on their roof deck and enjoy the ocean views. Unfortunately the deck was closed. Suggestion call ahead and ask.
As much as I enjoyed the food and appreciated the waitstaff, I would not go back. Plastic chairs and tables, no decor adds up to a lack of ambiance, which adds so much to the dining experience.
StevenF-Thank you for the notes. Unfortunately the roof has been closed due to weather. It is always far colder than expected and we hope the Summer season will make it possible soon. I hope that you are willing to give us another try. We take pride in serving fresh fish (and all other foods) and your experience was not the norm. Best regards- James
Beautiful restaurant with delicious food. Staff is very attentive and knowledgeable.
Thanks for so much for your review, come visit us again!
This lovely restaurant has delicious food and a very interesting wine list. The staff are friendly and professional. There are many great menu options. We love the French Onion Soup and Bouilabaisse. We enjoyed our oysters on the half shell.
Rainbow4fe- Thank you for the wonderful review of both your dining experience and our staff. The soup is a favorite of mine as well! We take pride in both! Hope to see you again soon! -James
I went in with my boyfriend at 7pm for dinner on a Saturday night. We felt like the staff there was a bit overwhelmed. When we walked in were weren’t greeted for awhile and no smiles from the staff. The host came by and started to say “Sorry we aren’t taking walk-ins” but I let her know that we actually had a reservation. We thought it was weird because the restaurant was practically empty and she assumed we were just walk-ins? Maybe because we look young, who knows.
My cocktail was good, I had the “French Kiss”, he ordered a whiskey neat.
The food was decent but I don’t think it was worth the price. We had the cheese board and charcuterie for an appetizer. Which we ordered first, with our drinks. Then the bartender came back and took our entree orders. He ordered the steak and I ordered the Provencal moules. The bartender brought out my entree with the apps. The mussels were room temp a few even cold and I could tell the fries had been sitting out :( So I let him know that they weren’t hot and to bring it out with the steak.
The steak was cooked perfectly medium rare! When my mussels came out they were nice and hot, however they didn’t add any of the sauce and the mussels were gritty. Maybe it was just an off night, but I was disappointed.
The place is super cute and has that hotel restaurant vibe.
It definitely has potential but our experience wasn’t the best. We might come back and try again in a few months, as we do want to support local restaurants. Right now, I recommend coming in to sit on the roof top for a cocktail and an app, but that’s it.
Sydney- Thank you for the notes. I'm sorry that the food was not up to standards and that upon entering you did not feel well met. I am glad you enjoyed the environment and cocktails. Please come back and give us another try. -James
This is a restaurant that holds promise but is not able to deliver. The food is exceptional but the service, ambience, noise makes what could be a high end restaurant in Rockaway a poor representation. My suggestion would be to develop 2 alternatives. A high end eat in restaurant and the beachy snack bar and drink that it is. The food is worthy of dining but not in its current form.
I am sorry you did not like the ambiance and are looking for a different vibe. It is good to hear that the food was a consistent positive. Thanks for coming in! -James
Great services waiter was very helpful and professional. Food was delicious had a lovely brunch with friends will be going back soon.
Excellent service and ambience. Food was very good and arrived in a timely fashion.
had a nice time overall. Excited for summer so we can sit on the upper deck outside
We came here on a whim after reading about their live music and mussels ! Honestly, the food was good. Some things were way better than others. But that’s at any place really. Grilled Oysters are amazing as are their Oysters Rockefeller. I was really excited about the deviled eggs, but they weren’t what I was expecting. Shrimp are HUGE and the mussels in the Thai sauce were amazing !! We also had their cheese board, eggplant gratin and my fave ... the chocolate pot de creme. THIS IS WHAT SOLD IT FOR ME ! Beside the service being top notch, the live music was a beautiful touch.
I think this is an amazing little hidden gem :)
The food was amazing and the staff/ servers great will attend again🔥
We were disappointed that the roof terrace is not yet open. However, when we arrived, it was about 15 degrees colder in Rockaway than in Central Queens. Staff was lovely and helpful. Meal was very good. Martini was a bit small. Good variety of pastis.
The food is authentic and very well prepared. Only one item to avoid: The steak frites. You want steak, go to a steakhouse. Here it is so-so, not very flavorful. Everthing else is very good to superb. Superb soup, mussels, burger, mahi mahi and all the appetizers.
The mussels provencale were exceptional. So was the olive oil lemon cake although there always too much cream on it. Some baguette would have been nice. It’s a lovely addition to the neighborhood and will be greet on the rooftop when the weather gets warmer.
A friend and I went to dinner at Bar Marseille Friday evening. The food and service were wonderful. Also, the tables were at least six feet apart which added to our enjoyment.
