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.

The Marc is our favourite restaurant in Edmonton, and continue to go there for birthday, and anniversary celebrations. The food is always excellent and the service is first class. The servers are all very professional and most of them have been with the Marc for a number of years. Thanks to Brandi and Kim for making our night during these tough times safe, enjoyable and perfect! Thank you to the Owners who make the extra effort to keep this restaurant a first class, comfortable, delicious and total enjoyable experience!

We have inconsistently visited The Marc for many years, well over 6 years now. To the point, where we've discussed with the owner hosting our wedding there, (still not married 5 years later hahahaha) we love the atmosphere and the food is always amazing. The menu has evolved but they still stick to their best known Steak which has never diminished in quality, and the new dishes and drinks are equally as pleasing. (Put the london fog drink on the menu permanently!) I recommend The Marc to all our friends!

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.
