Service
 
French traditions and farm-to-table sensibilities shape the menu at this "cute" Marina bakery and bistro, where the "affordable" little luxuries include "wonderful breads and pastries" , quiches, croques and other "easy" light bites, plus coffee, beer and wine; some say it's "hit or miss" for quality and service, but "when it's good, it's good."

I really like the food here but the service has really gone downhill in the last year. It seems like most of the staff is new and just don’t seem to hustle except for one guy. When we arrived for a late lunch on Saturday there were several tables open, unbussed and there was a sign-in sheet at the door with 5+ parties on the list. Looks like everyone else abandoned hope but we asked one of the waiters if we could seat ourselves and he said “of course.” Wonder if the bus boy was just off today and whether there was a host at all. Definitely a shame because the food is quite good. We had to flag down the staff for menus and ended up getting our own waters despite asking for them.

The food is acceptable, somewhat lost its European style. It used to be good when it just opened, but slowly changed. I had high hopes when I saw a new French bakery and expecting to eat a baquette and croissant like in Le Marais in Paris but disappointed to see it was far from the name and taste. It is such a perfect location... The worst is the staff who does not pay much attention to their customer and way too slow. Staff needs to be better trained and know what they are doing... We cannot blame them when management is not training them properly or maybe does not care.

I went to Le Marais for a quick brunch on a Wednesday morning around 11am. We were able to take a seat and the waitress got to us right away. On a whim I decided to try their Breakfast Board, 5 choices for $15, and boy was I pleased. I got bacon, scrambled eggs, strawberries, oatmeal, and goat cheese. The farm-to-table taste stood out for sure, and I was delighted with the refreshing berries and the delicious bacon (and I know my bacon well). The goat cheese was my favorite; I would go back just for that. Not only was the presentation great, but the service was quick and accommodating (only had 30min on my meter lol). Definitely would come back here for breakfast, and to try the beautiful pastries I was peeking at from across the room!
