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!
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!
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!!
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!
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.
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.
We were not told tip was included- we were scammed. Included gratuity is called Administrative Fee. Creepy
My girlfriend and I recently visited Bar Marseille on a Saturday night with another couple. We were celebrating my friend and my girlfriend, both of whom recently got new jobs. Let me start by saying the staff was extremely attentive and friendly. They gave us multiple rounds of free shots later in the evening and showed us the roof deck after dinner (it will be opened in 2 weeks). The food was also excellent. We started with some grilled oysters and the burrata app special. For mains, my friend and I both got the steak frites (go with the grass fed strip - it was worth the extra money), and the steak was cooked perfectly. The girls got the bouillabaisse and the tuna burger, which were very fresh and delicious. The cocktails were also well done and the decor was inventive (themed after Art Deco Miami - they have a framed photo from The Birdcage on the wall). Will definitely be going back once the roof deck is open for some live music on Friday nights.
Go, you won't regret it. Lemon Olive Oil Cake. You're welcome.
Little ambiance in the outdoor seating area. Attentive wait staff but entrees took forever. Pricey wine list.
Lovely service. Very accommodating . Had outside reservations but it was cold and they graciously put us inside.
All dishes were delicious
What a gem! Delicious French-inspired food and cocktails in the heart of Rockaway's Renaissance. A great après place --the ambiance is a beautiful mash-up of Marseille and Miami Beach. We will be back!
Markups on the wine list are astronomical! Oysters were very clean and properly opened. preparation and seasoning of steak tartare and grilled octopus salad was a little heavy-handed and over-seasoned, but we were happily surprised the octopus wasn't over-cooked and the tartare was hand-cut, rather than ground. Wait staff was enthusiastic and friendly.
More casual than I expected so that I feel comfortable that I can just call to see if they have a table available and pop in for a quick drink and appetizer, and don't have to save this for a full dinner. I will be back with friends.
Great food and good steak and fries. Definitely try the cream of spinach with breadcrumbs called (winter greens).
Thank you for the 5 stars. Our chef loves to hear such positive feedback. Come back soon! -James
We really liked the decor and feel of the reataurant. The menu was somewhat limited but that was okay. The
