    The food is always excellent. The service is usually good but sometimes a little slow if the pub is heaving. Sometimes it is too noisy with music as well as chatter. And I think the tables are too close together during covid times. But, overall it is a really good local for us.

    I ordered a steak, medium rare. The steak delivered was: over cooked; not hot; a tired piece of meat. It was terrible. Very unusual for the Marquis. However, when I explained this to the staff, they were great, no issue, ‘what can we do?’. So, I ordered the fish of the day. Delivered quite quickly, and as usual, it was great. Food is difficult, I know that. I thank the staff for getting it right.

    Some of the worst serve I’ve ever experienced in Melbourne. Our waitress forgot our orders multiple times. One of us didn’t get their meal until it was rush out at the end. As well as a bottle of wine which we ordered an hour earlier. It took so long for service that by the time we were eating our lunch we were pushed off the table but still had a full bottle of wine. Which they had forgot. There was zero understanding from the employees. Who walked the bill up to us when we were still eating. Our waitress was doing shots behind the bar and honestly look like she was drunk. I won’t be coming back here again. It honestly took our whole booking time to get our lunch and were waiting for table service the entire booking. I only had the opportunity to order two drinks in 1.5 hours period. Super disappointing because I was so excited for this place and it was a special occasion.

    We loved our experience so much yesterday! We had a big group and the service was fantastic- thanks so much for showing us a good time! The only small bit of feedback I have would be the scarce amount of vegetarian options on the menu. I completely forgot that we had a vegetarian in our party so I apologise that I didn’t make that know prior to our booking. However, since our vegetarian friend wasn’t a big fan of artichokes in your salad main, it meant that he didn’t really have many options of things to eat apart from a couple of your starters. We love the Marquis and will absolutely be returning- hopefully there might be another vegetarian main or two available on the menu when we do :) Thanks again!
