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.

I am in my late 50s and have been eating strictly kosher for 36 years. Previously, I did not eat pork, meat-dairy mixtures or shellfish, but had eaten filet mignon and sirloin steak. The tournedos at Le Marais is as good as any non-kosher steak that I had ever eaten. I always order it without the bernais sauce and get the salad without the vinegrette. I also like the jerky and other prepared meat products that the restaurant's butcher shop sells. The butcher shop sells raw tournedos. Once, I bought one and broiled it at home. It did not the same as a steak served in the restaurant. This is NOT because they selling different cuts for off-premises consumption. This IS either because there is a skill to doing something as seemingly simple as cooking as steak, the restaurant has a special professional-use broiler or Le Marais seasons its steaks with a "secret" seasoning.

Delicious succulant kosher meals.The waiters are efficient and do not stop to ask you questions every 5 mins. Le Marais offers a good lively enviroment, steady walls (for the hard of hearing) and well presented meals.
