It's hard to understand why anyone likes the food here except that they think they're supposed to because it's "Le Marais" which has an unexplainable hype around it. The coq au vin tasted like a microwave meal and the mashed potatoes had the texture and flavor of powdered mashed potatoes from the box. The steak was way oversalted as well. The food wasn't just average, it was bad. The decor was incredibly boring and uninspired. Nothing French about it. We had a good waiter so from that one experience- the service was good.

Went there for dessert on a night out... A table there was so loud and obnoxious, but no one asked them to be quiet. I literally choked on the chocolate mousse when people at the next table started shouting, repeatedly. And when I told the management about the problem, he cut me off saying theres nothing he can do about it. Terrible management, tired service, and lackluster desserts

Hostess sat on her stool, did not greet us, and was not friendly at all. We waited 20 minutes to be seated despite the fact that we called ahead. We tried to get a waiters attention for another 15-20 minutes to get water and place our order. Food was brought to the table very quickly. Steak was a bit tough, but lamb was delicious. It took another 15 minutes to flag someone down to get a dessert menu. The waiter dropped it off and left. We figured it would be 15 more minutes to order dessert, another 15 to get dessert, and probably 30 more minutes just to get the check, so we decided to pay and leave. We were under the impression that this was a nice restaurant. It was overcrowded with tables jammed against each other. Extremely noisy. We were entirely disappointed with our experience.

The food was amazing, but it was very cold there. I'm for sure going there again. I highly recommend!

It is the best steak and they are kosher too. I am not kosher but buy all my meat here and it is top notch! Wow!

We arrived with a large group and were seated upstairs where the noise level rivaled that of a fire house with 4 alarms. The service was so poor that we did not get a waiter to take our orders for 30 minutes. When the waiter did arrive, he was quick to push bottles of wine on us but order taking took a while. My steak au poivre was good but other steaks came in overdone. The mixed green salad was wilted and single salmon croquette was not better than what grandma used to cook. The noise and poor service just poisoned the experience.

Le Marais provides the best taste/cost of any kosher restaurant in Manhattan. The issue with service? This is commonplace with kosher restaurants. Some are better/poorer than others and this is sometimes dependent on the day. But, given the value proposition, I am willing to put up with the nuisance. The butcher is very good as well. I buy all our steak there. Why? In earlier days, did not keep kosher. Most comparable in taste to non-kosher beef although the cost reflects the quality.
