    It is nice to lunch where I can converse without competing with sounds from other tables, the kitchen or loud music. We were graciously welcomed, our waiter attended to our every need, we were served in good time and not rushed. It is difficult to find really good lunch places, especially in Warner Robins where most lunch hours are somewhat frantic. A few months ago my husband and I celebrated our anniversary there with a wonderful dinner and complimentary wine. We selected the "Sunset Special", an early evening menu, which suited our occasion and mood very well. We'll go back. I also hope to introduce other women friends to the delightful lunch hour there this year.

    While on a business trip to Warner Robbins, I was looking for a nice place to get dinner. Little did I know I would find one of the best Italian meals I had since visiting Italy last year!! The portion sizes were perfect and not too big which left room for some amazing dessert! The caprese salad was delightful. The lasagne tasted so authentic and homemade. And the zabaione was the most amazing dessert I have ever had! I honestly can't wait to come back!

    Marco is the place to go for that special experience dinner or lunch. The service is excellent but slows noticeably as the place fills or with groups over 4. Plan on a 2 hour dinner, not a fast food joint for sure. I rated the quality of the service and attention to detail, not the speed. Great wine selection and knowledgeable servers. Pricing is a bit high for the locale but in line with big cities. The food quality and presentation more than makes up for the higher pricing, in my opinion. As an experienced and frequent traveler I rank Marco with any fine dining experience at that price point, it's definitely a gem in the rough for Middle Georgia. Don't expect a cozy Italian bistro, the interior is more modern European.

    Saturday evening we wanted to celebrate our 45th Anniversary and were glad we had to look no further than our own city. The real clencher was the email that I had received on Friday from Open Table...so I took advantage of the offer and made a reservation at Marco's. Being our first time ever, we were hoping for a good experience. From the moment we walked into the building and was greeted by the hostess till we left the restaurant we were very well taken care of. The experience was outstanding. The food was delicious from the Caeser salad, the main course of Mediteranean Bass, and finally the Godiva Chocolate dessert...all paired well with our suggested wine. Thank you for a very good first experience with Marco's. We plan to return.

    We were very happy with the entire evening. Billy was our waiter and the most gracious person you could ever ask for. We had no real idea of what to choose for dinner and the specials he spoke of sounded perfect and were even more delicious that he made them sound. This was a very perfect evening and meal. We will return for sure.

    It seems like the servers worried more about fine dining attic kit and the Restaurant worries about the food. The fish we ordered was kind of bland. The server filleted it tableside, which is fine dining etiquette. But she was inexperienced in doing so, so it took her literally like 15 minutes. The food was lukewarm, kind of getting cold by the time the server had filleted it. And the food tasted the land. For an appetizer, two entrées, and two desserts, with no alcoholic beverages, our bill for two was $130. For this kind of price. I expected better tasting food. Both our appetizer of prawn and our fish entrée, were served with mashed potatoes. I expected more variety

    We went to the Easter Brunch and loved it. The range of food items was great and all well prepared as well as visually appealing. The service was excellent. We were welcomed by all the staff that we were in contact with. It's great to have a restaurant of such great caliber in our town. The prices are on the high side but worth it for special occasions. We have eaten there in the past for both lunch and dinner and have not been disappointed.

    We finally made it to Marco for our 10th anniversary of the day we met. We did choose our menu items from the Sundowner menu, so limited choices. We enjoyed our dinner, the wine, and the atmosphere. Would like to go back and choose from the full menu. We walked around to the bar and lounge area. Both very nice and would be fun to come back to with a group of friends. We'll be back!

    2 authentic pasta dishes is what we ordered for dinner, and they were delicious! We had to ask the server to bring us bread to accompany the pasta, and when we got it, it tasted and smelled like they reheated it with old oil. BUT, aside from that, the entrees were great. We also ordered tiramisu (very light & tasty) as well as the nutella crepes which were made at the table over a flaming pan. YUM is all we have to say about that! Presentation terrific & taste divine! Definitely something that should be ordered! Overall, great experience, nice quiet atmosphere, and personable staff. Hope this restaurant stays around for a LONG TIME in Warner Robins!

    Food was very good. I had Filet Diane, my wife had Branzino. I don't believe I have ever had a more tender steak and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the fish. Our waiter Eduardo was very good when he was with us but apparently he had too many tables as the time between his visits was too long. Reviews I read before going suggested smart casual/ business casual as the dress code. This is not enforced since I saw one fellow in a grey T-shirt, several in jeans but at least a decent shirt. We will return but will probably ask our waiter how many tables he has and make it known we expect good service and that our gratuity will reflect service received.

    Overpriced. Food was served cool and was cold before the portion was half finished (both my filet and compainions tuna steak). Obvious seating was likely laid out on a computer to assure maximum seating; thus no privacy and little room to get between occupied tables.

    It was definitely a splurge! While the food was very good, not sure that it was worth the entire price. The seating was fairly uncomfortable- I started out in a booth but sank significantly lower than my date so ended up moving to sit next to him in the chair. We were there for over three hours. We were there on a Saturday night so it was fairly busy so slower service was expected, but it seemed like we waited a really long time. The staff was very pleasant, though so it made it more bearable to wait. Only other small complaint was that we sat really close to a larger table, and I felt like we might as well have sat with them because I could hear their entire conversation- I was expecting something a little more intimate.

    Our experience at Marco was not good. Food was average at best. I had the gnocchi. Could have made a way better gnocchi dish at home! Our Service was disastrous! Waited for 25 minutes after our meal for our check. Ordered another glass of wine but didn't receive it. Was charged for it anyway. Really annoyed when we left to have paid those kind of prices for poor service and food I could have made way better myself. Go to Natalia's in Macon for amazing Italian food and experience at this price point.

    We were at Marco last Saturday evening. It was amazing!!! We have been to their sister restaurant in Macon, & this was well up to their standards. All the food was delicious & we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The only complaint we had, was my husbands squid ink pasta & seafood. He loved the pasta, but their were only about 2 clams & 2 mussels & 2 whole shrimp- not a big enough portion for him. Other than that, the prices are extremely high. It would be nice to be able to go there more than a few times a year- if the prices were lower. Overall, we give it a 5* rating.

    I took my wife to Marco's Warner Robins for a belated birthday dinner, which we usually do. However, this time we were out of town on her birthday visiting our new granddaughter. The Warner Robins location is far more convenient for us, and the setting is perfect for that sort of dinner, quiet, the excellent food and the service was great.
