Eola or Marcels for a birthday dinner?

ViolentScarlet | Jun 19, 2011 06:00 PM

I'm taking my BF to a birthday dinner in a few weeks and have narrowed it down to Marcel's or Eola, but not sure which one to choose. The food looks great at both, and I think both have corkage fees (we'll probably bring our own wine).
If we went to Marcel's, we'd likely do the $58 pre-theatre menu, which I've read can leave one feeling less than full. Does anyone have experience with this/care to comment? Also, at Marcel's, jackets are required, right?
Does anyone know if either of these places do anything extra/special for birthdays?
Any advice on which to choose would be much appreciated - thanks!
