“Very average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

We went for a late lunch. The food was OK. For example, the Italian salad had nice ingredients and had potential but the dressing mixed in the salad was bland and tasted like it was out of a bottle and near the expiration date. Sandwiches were OK. The service was bad. In spite of there being few patrons at the late lunch hour, our server was hard to find. The manager was seated at a booth--presumably with acquaintances--and it took some effort to get her attention to ask for the check. Her response? I didn't see you because I was walking the restaurant. Really? When you were clearly seated two booths away from us? We will avoid this place in the future.

“BEST PRIME RIB”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

We ate here last night and their Friday special is Prime Rib. I ordered it and was delicious! My husband ordered the flat steak. He raved about the taste. Our server was top notch and was always there to make sure we had refills on drinks, or any other requests. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“New menu addition was fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Marmalade is one of my favorite local places with very friendly staff and delicious, fresh food. I enjoyed the new thai pasta dish that was flavorful and filling. I have tried many things at Marmalade and have never been disappointed. Good place to eat healthy and fresh for a great price. Yum!
