    The rabbit ravioli with fresh basil is one of the best dishes I've had! Suffered in consistency though.. as the second time unfortunately was not as amazing.

    The special was almost too much food for two people, let alone a single one.

    Marben feels like a big city restaurant tucked away in a secret corner. They grow a lot of their herbs on site. Make sure to try the mushroom stuffed burger and decent selection of beer.

    Consisyently good food. Great vibe. Good cheese plate and charcuterie. Great looking cocktail menu, need to try. Appropriately pricey. Not insanely busy.  Liking the vesterbro.

    Risotto was goopy and lacked flavour. Portions overall were very small. We also waited over an hour to get our food - had to miss the reservations we had post-dinner. Will likely not be coming back.

    Good if you want a bite - not if you are hungry as a bear - although great mini-burger

    It upped its ante with a revised menu that brought it from being just another restaurant to a farm-to-table dining experience. [Eater 38 Member]

    Probably the worst service I have ever received in Toronto. My glass was always empty, the food is way under proportioned for the quality and the price. Avoid coming here if you can.

    Overall very good except: Monthly pig roast a great concept; meat was flavourful, but dry. Atmosphere was beautiful, but wineglass lights were very dirty and was afraid stuff would fall into my food

    Don't say this often, but the duck was a letdown. Stick to the burger and if you can, finish with the bread pudding.

    TIFF 2012 TIP: On any given night, this is where the beautiful people go to eat incredible food. For TIFF, this is only amplified. A great bar and wine list only add to a "ne plus ultra" experience Read more

    Their brunch wait staff need to enroll in "how to earn your tip 101" The food was amazing, but the whole experience was less than gleaming thanks to our waiters errors

    The macaroni and cheese is just "okay". Go with the burger. The service too was just "okay" but probably just got their worst waiter...

    Ordered French toast with Peameal but they won't give it to me even though they have some. They're saving it for those who might come later and order a different menu item: the benny. Geesh, really?!

    It’s a dream come true for any carnivore. Meat straight from their very own farm, a drool worthy rustic menu, and a monthly pig roast, you simply can’t go wrong. Or hungry.

    Came for the French toast but was told they had none. With limited menu options, it's poor management.

    Amazing food. Just ignore the menu and ask chef Ryan to bring out a selection of whatever's good that evening. I can't get enough of their lardo on the charcuterie plate!
