The cooking at Marben is Modern Canadian, with a strong focus on seasonality and vibrant Mediterranean flavours. Chef Rob Bragagnolo utilizes his Italian and Spanish background to create innovative dishes that highlight the bounty of Ontario and Canada. We pride ourselves in using only the highest quality ingredients to craft all of our breads, charcuterie, pasta, sauces, and a la carte dishes, in house. <br /><br />“The point at which the big & bold classic flavours of old world bodegas, trattorias, osterias, and tabernas intersects the fresh and innovative ideas of modernist-vanguard kitchens, is where I believe real magic happens. If you can balance soul-warming comfort and nostalgia with surprise, intrigue and wonder, you’ve hit something very special.” - Chef Rob Bragagnolo<br />

"This place used to be awesome. I would dream about their gnocchi and John's burger. I'm not sure what happened but this restaurant has experienced a STEEP decline. The burger is still good but the pasta was rubbery, the food presentation was lacking. The served some ceviche cones in some uncooked beans, ugly and not edible, why?! Where the service used to be excellent - warm and attentive - the service is now SO slow & cold. It took us 2 and a half hour to receive 4 plates (for 2 people) and there was absolutely no communication for at least an hour despite us trying to get our server's attention. They did comp us some free drinks for the wait but it's definitely not enough to make us go back."
