Meet the owner

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.

We started with the pate and cheese plate with "croutons" but the croutons were huge slices of toasted baguette - wonderful! Then we had the specials - I had the arctic char and my husband had the beef short ribs - both were excellent! The beef was so tender I was almost envious that I should have got the short ribs too but the vegetables that came with the char were so delicious it reaffirmed that I had made the right choice. That's one of the reasons I love dining here so much - the vegetables are treated with so much love they often steal the limelight from the main protein. Wonderful evening and wonderful service. I always recommend this restaurant.

This is my second time at The Marc. Booked a table for 9 for my wife's birthday. The service is excellent and everyone felt well taken care of. The food is definitely some of the best in the city. If you want to have a dinner for two or a dinner with friends The Marc is well worth a visit.

Excellent service as always. Food was great, small complaint about the salad (beet/wild rice). Didn't enjoy it as much as expected - too salty and didn't like the dressing. Otherwise my wife enjoyed the boulliabase and I enjoyed the stuffed zucchini, and what can you say about the beignets!!!

Our meal and service was fantastic. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable and the service had perfect timing. OOOH, the food was so yummy. I loved my pork belly and scallops and my husband loved his smoked pork. Even better than the perfectly cooked meat was the delicious vegetable accompaniment.

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.
