Patrick Saurette, who co-owns The Marc with his wife, says his favourite thing about running the downtown French restaurant is the staff. The group is like a big family, he says, many of whom followed Patrick from his former business Il Portico to a completely new venture in 2010.

When he first opened The Marc, he heard a story of a husband and wife who had been frequent customers of Il Portico. The restaurant had been the backdrop for their first date, their engagement and anniversaries. When the restaurant closed, the husband still wanted to do something special for an upcoming anniversary – his solution was to get some takeout and enjoy it with his wife in the former Il Portico parking lot.

“I think the story shows the importance people place on restaurants,” says Patrick. “For sure food is important, but underlying all of that is the experience of breaking bread with special people in your life. And that experience is created by them,” he says, pointing towards several staff members busy working in the kitchen.

Friendly, efficient service and quality food. Sat on the patio. Had two market fish of the day which is always excellent. Favorite place for well prepared fish. Have yet to be disappointed in the meals or the service.

Service by all of the members of this team was, as usual, excellent. They all make you feel like a member of their extended family. The event was a wine pairing dinner. The dishes were as good as any Parisian Bistoro (it was the theme). And the wines paired beautifully with the dishes.

Greeted by Patrick in his always very affable and professional manner and seated with friends table for four. Restaurant was full and a good upbeat but not too noisy atmosphere seemingly took us to a restaurant in Paris with the menu and the decor. Dinner was well prepared an delicious and not rushed between courses. Chocolate cake and sauce for desert! Life is great and…. so is Patrick’s The Marc!! Merci Beaucoup to Patrick, The Chef and our servers. We will be back soon!

Food was good, service was excellent. In between appetizers and the main course there was a bit of delay. Otherwise the experience was positive overall. I would say it’s a good date night expect to pay more as it’s on the pricey side.

Mais oui! Fantastic fries to fit your fancy in Edmonton

Mais oui! Fantastic fries to fit your fancy in Edmonton

The hand cut frites here are gorgeous and tasty – so golden and crispy, never oily or soggy. The best part, of course, is the truffle aioli that comes on the side. One dip and you’ll be in heaven. The aioli is creamy and rich, and pairs perfectly with the hot fries. You’ll be perfectly content – until you run out of aioli, that is.

Restaurants in Edmonton with amazing atmospheres

Restaurants in Edmonton with amazing atmospheres

The Marc is twice as nice when it comes to inviting atmospheres – once for its bright, intimate indoor space and twice for its coveted patio space in the heart of downtown. The crisp white walls adorned by long horizontal mirrors make the quaint space feel much larger, and the slim, elegant lighting fixtures give it an undeniable uptown flair. The Marc does all of the important things right without any of the needless embellishments. You’ll be impressed!

Up in smoke: Edmonton spots that enhance flavour with fire

Downtown’s beloved French restaurant serves up both lunch and dinner, and provides a nice smattering of smoked menu items. On the lunch menu, try the smoked chicken flatbread topped with roasted garlic, corn, pickled shallots, fresh arugula and mouthwatering crème fraîche. On the dinner menu, sample the boulettes (smoked char dumplings) or the smoked pork rillettes.
