The food here was just average, and very expensive. I will note we dined here on Monday night so maybe the signature chief was not cooking that night. The service was fun and friendly, they could not have been nicer.

I would avoid this place. Our fish was over cooked and the $70 steak was chewy and low quality. I would never dine here again. We raised our concern to the manager (Istavan) but basically they dont care.

We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating my Dad's 85th birthday dinner at Mar'sel. The views of the ocean were amazing. Michael, our Server, was fabulous. He was professional, courteous and knowledgeable. The food was excellent! We could not have picked a better restaurant or server. Thank you!!

This place is crazy expensive, but at least the food isn't that great so we wouldn't want to return any way. We are definitely not "foodie" enough for this restaurant. The only thing on the menu either of us were willing to eat was the...More

We have a extraordinary dinner with a view of the peninsula. Our server, Michael, was "absolutely" fantastic. Following the reviews we ordered the mussels: enormous and so tasty, and tried the English muffins made there with butter and sea salt.... so good . We also...More
