Marmalade Cafe - Sherman Oaks calificaciones y reseñas
I've been enjoying Marmalade in Sherman Oaks for years but hadn't been there recently. Still pretty much the same - charming. Sorry to see the pastry display replaced by a bar, but I guess that's a more lucrative use of the space. Also disappointed in the limited dessert choices, but otherwise the brunch menu was outstanding. Server was somewhat inattentive and had to be reminded several times to bring what we requested. One of the dishes was undercooked despite instructions, but someone who I think was the chef attended to fixing it personally and waited while we tried it. Second time was perfect. Overall, it'a always enjoyable and delicious.
The food was slower than usual, based upon prior experience. The food came out at different times, but the server tried to do what she could to accommodate us. It was tough to hear, unless you were sitting in the middle of our rectangular table.
Service started off well but after our order was taken we didn’t see our waiter again. He never came to check on us to see how our meal was. We had to ask our busboy for condiments, we didn’t get beverage refills and had to track the waiter down to get the check. It was early and not busy. There were a number of other wait staff on hand so being short handed is not the reason.
We have dined here before and will again but will ask for another waiter if he is on shift.
On the positive side my lamb burger was delicious!
Nice and quiet on a Sunday night. Delicious warm bread to start. Our appetizer of chips and guacamole was surprisingly delicious. The chips were freshly made and warm! We all enjoyed our cocktails from the extensive drink menu. Our entrees were all delicious. Nicely done, Marmalade Cafe.
The noise level was almost unbearable -- the management should attempt to put families with kids together and away from the general public. The jokes from the male server were welcome, funny, and relieved some of the stress of not being able to converse over our meal.
Restaurant was busy for Sunday brunch however our Open Table reservation let us be seated immediately. Server was delightful but I had to inquire after nearly 25 minutes about the delay and shortly thereafter our meals were served (server should have known about the delay and at least should have come by to say something). We're not "regulars" but have eaten here over the last 20 years and would like the place to endure.
Usually the food is food at The Marmalade Cafe but the Salmon Nicose salad was one of the worst salads I have ever had, and I'm not super picky. It was bland, the salmon had zero flavor, the potatoes were under cooked-actually un-eatable. The dressing wasn't good.
This place is perfect for what it is...a great place for friends to meet any time of day. Or even if you'd like to dine by yourself and read. Lighting is good, not too bright. The food is very good, reliable...drinks are excellent and the servers actually help each other. I hadn't been there in a while and it's definitely on my EZ list now. It's very busy on week ends.
The Marmalade Café is what it is. It's not very fancy, and the food is not exceptional, but they have a varied menu and it is not terribly expensive. It's also located near the 405, so it was a good place to meet people coming from Santa Monica.
What a disappointment. I moved into Sherman Oaks recently, within walking distance of the restaurant. Was looking forward to trying it, having heard it is a popular brunch spot. Went there yesterday (8/27). I ordered a double latte; it was so weak I sent it back. The replacement was no better. For my brunch, I ordered the roast turkey hash that comes with three poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. First, I defy you to find the turkey. Second, that could be because the hash had the texture of something put through a food processor. There was nothing larger that a small grain of rice or 1/2 a piece of barley. Who turns hash into cereal?? Third, it had no taste. Fourth, the hollandaise was unrecognizable: no richness, no tartness, no anything. Not awful, just tasteless. The eggs were fine, but the whole dish was pathetic. Terrible latte, tasteless hash with an off-putting consistency. Maybe I happened to order the worst thing on their extensive menu. I will likely go back to try something for lunch, but I need to be prepared for another, incredibly disappointing meal.
Food is very good and the service has always been friendly and helpful. Only concerned because on a Saturday night it was very quiet and should have more business. Parking is also too expensive given that it is a pretty empty restaurant.
One of a chain of about eight locations. Decent menu with lots of choices. Full bar and good wine list. Quiet enough for a conversation. Good service. Street parking (meters til 8:00 p.m.; do not park South of the Boulevard because those streets are often restricted.) Valet parking, about $6. I had the Chinese Chicken Salad, very good. DW had the lamb burger, which comes on a brioche bun and with a salad (or other side) and she reported it was very good.
We had a delightful lunch on the patio with a terrific fruit punch. Forget the name, but it had watermelon juice, orange juice, lime juice and coconut juice. Super delicious. My Italian Chopped Salad was perfect and my friend loved her Chinese Chicken Salad, which looked fantastic. Great lunch and the patio was perfect as it seemed a bit cold on the inside. I was concerned about the noise level which was mentioned in other reviews, but I did not find it noisy inside. We chose to sit outside as the weather was perfect. I would definitely go back.
We came here to celebrate my daughters birthday. We had a large group for breakfast and I chose Marmalade for its ambience and that they could accommodate 9 people on a Sunday morning with no wait! Food was great but we did have 3 vegans and they only provide vegetarian options so this made the choices a lot more limited but they took the eggs off and so it worked. Everyone enjoyed their food. I would comebhere again :)
I came across this restaurant on Trip Advisor. It is local, it has a good menu and advertised outdoor seating. The last is a bit of an overstatement. There are just a couple of tables right on a very busy street. I elected to sit at the bar and had an excellent drink - the Pueblo Viejo Paloma. I then ordered the tuna tartare which was perfect and a bowl of gazpacho. The soup was cool and spicy. Crispy chicken park seemed popular and the restaurant, while quiet that night, is obviously popular with the locals. The menu is American, but updated. The service e was good and prices weren't too crazy for LA.
Both portabella eggs benedict brunch entrees were prepared incorrectly - one was ordered straight from the menu, mine was ordered with poached eggs cooked "medium," but both were served very well done. Mine was requested with fruit but was served with potatoes. Both were inedible as poached eggs. (And the portabella mushrooms were very rubbery.) Both dishes were taken back, and we waited again the standard time for two new meals to be prepared. The waitress said it was the kitchen's mistake, not hers. Manager said he would do something "nice" for us. Bill came with charge for 4 Eggs Benedict entrees, then credited for two, and we were given a $5.00 "family and friends" discount. He asked if that was enough and we said no. So he comped one meal. The whole experience was ridiculous. I see my sister just a few times a year, and this was not the pleasant meal we had hoped for.
