Marco Island has finally been gifted with an authentic chef inspired steakhouse! The entrées are both hearty in portion and refined in flavor. The bar staff, waitstaff, and management are eager to please and well informed about their menu options. The interior is "old world sophisticated" and would meet the needs for anything from a family dinner to a rehearsal dinner.
The outside bar is under cover and is equipped with multiple ceiling fans to keep it cool and bug free!
We were very impressed and would, without hesitation, go to Marco Prime again!

New Marco Hot Spot
We had a wonderful dinner at Marco Prime. Their appitizers were fantastic. Everyone at our table ordered something different and shared.....we had grilled Spanish octopus, chop stix shrimp, roasted marrow bones, tuna tartare, and ceviche. I think the top choice was the marrow bones, followed by the chop stix shrimp. The grilled octopus was excellent as well! As for dinner, we had Wagyu NY strip steaks, sliced Wagyu strip steak, and jumbo scallops. The steaks were perfectly done.....the seafood was fabulous. Marco Prime is a wonderful new restaurant on Marco Island. The atmosphere, the food, the service, and the management are all above par.

One of Marco's greatest
Marco Prime will hit a big "Home run" with Marco diners. It has a great outside bar and the inside is romantic and very pleasing. Alex, the server was great and being just open a week, It was refreshing and fun. Jenny at the bar took exceptional care and they "get it" about allergies. Thanks. Tom & Donna

Excellent addition to Marco
The food was fabulous and the decor was quite nice. The wait staff was pleasant and very good. The only negatives I can see are the odd shaped plates that you can't rest your cutlery on and having to pay $3.00 for accompanying sauces. That's a bit of a turn off. Otherwise it's quite lovely.

We had 8 people in our group. Not one step went wrong. Start to finish the service was above and beyond. The wait staff was attentive and good natured, and our server was like a ninja refilling our water glasses. The food was absolutely delicious. From the bread with truffle butter to the mouth watering steaks, the perfect oysters, the most amazing shoe-string potatoes with truffle oil and all the way down to the delicious desserts, you can not order wrong. After years of dining out in the Boston area, Kansas City, and even a trip to Paris, we were thrilled to come across this restaurant and all agreed that it was one of the best dining experiences we had ever had, hands down.

Best Restaurant on Marco Island
This is just what the island needed - this restaurant gives you everything you could ask for. The food is incredible, don't miss the 14 oz sliced Wagyu, the decor and ambiance is extremely warm and comfortable, and the service is stellar. Ask for Theresa! Adame, one of the owners was very welcoming - Can't wait to go back.

A gem of a restaurant
Adamo and Luigi and their extended family have created a beautiful addition to their food and bar options on Marco Island. The new restaurant is beautiful. The food was incredible. The wine list is extensive. The waitstaff is friendly, knowledgable, and well trained. My wife had the scallops and declared them the best she has ever had. I enjoyed the exquisite, melt in your mouth Chilean sea bass. Owner Adamo took plenty of time to help us choose a bottle of wine to compliment our food choices.
Prices are much more reasonable than the other steak house on the Island.
We love their sister restaurant, DaVinci's, but we now have a new favorite place for a nice dinner.

We had a great meal! It's a nice change of pace from the other island restaurants.

New Marco Prime Steakhouse
As a resident of Marco my wife and I are glad we tried the new Marco Prime before season starts. It is definitely a winner and with the location we are sure it will be a main attraction for dining. The owners who also own Divinci's have done a great job with the NEW steak place for Marco!! Naturally being a steakhouse we had to try the filet which was superb and cooked to our request. The sides are really a single portion and not to share as you would be used to be getting from a place like Morton's or Landry's. pricing was in line with most all steakhouses. Service was not lacking and wait time for meal was very quick and timely.
As always, Adomo, one of the owners makes it a point to personally make you feel part of the family. TRY IT!

Marco Island..First thing I think would be high end and elegant. Not so fast.. This steakhouse was nice but not white table cloth nice that you would think in Marco Island. The filet was cooked to my specs and the brussel spouts were very good. The bar opens up to the dining room and sits outside the restauant. Almost felt like I was at a college bar while eating dinner.

Service was fantastic from the time we were greeted to the very end. Staff was extremely friendly professional and knowledgeable. Food was excellent! I had the petit filet mignon and it was cooked to perfection. The presentation for the entrees and dessert was lovely. We had a few drinks at the outside bar and the bartending staff were great. A definite must!

Wonderful new restaurant on Marco Island. Steaks were fork tender, sea bass with miso was expertly prepared and the flavor remarkable. The dining experience was top notch. From appetizer (we chose grilled octopus - fresh and succulent) to dessert all were outstanding and served in a timely manner. Lively, fit for foodies hot spot and a neighborhood gem for these full-time residents.

Great addition to Marco!

our first experience at Marco Prime steak and seafood, filet was excellentk -perfectly cooked and sides(green beans, mushrooms, double backed potato) were also terrific. Leo our waiter was really good.
We will be back

This is a repeat dining for us at Marco Prime and just as the first we enjoyed all that the restaurant offers. Food and service consistent. No doubt it will be a success!!

DaVinci's owners hit home run
The guys who brought you DaVinci's have a great new place for steak and seafood. If you like outdoor dining the seating around their open air bar is perfect. You can dine at the bar or just enjoy the vibrant area until your table is ready. We have been there 5 times already with no wait (we book through open table.com) but when "season" hits I expect that to change. They have a very extensive wine list that is well priced. Having trouble deciding, ask for help. Luigi and Adamo both know their options very well. The scallops are the best I have had anywhere. Everything we have tried has been delicious. Enjoy!

Marco's Best Restaurant
By far the best dining experience I have ever had on Marco.......will go back with my wife and friends and recommend it to others

Our best dinner on Marco
Other than a snafu with our opentable reservation, this was a great dining experience. The service (Ed) was outstanding - a balance of responsiveness but not too attentive. His suggestions were excellent as well. The food was outstanding. Even the drinks were delicious. There were four of us and each one raved about the great tasting entrees. Finally, we shared desserts as well. The creme brulee and key lime tort were excellent. We visited a good number of restaurants during our 2 week stay but Marco Prime was hands down the best.
Looking forward to going back next year.

The DaVinci's owners hit a home run
The owners of long time local favorite have done it again. This new location, directly across the courtyard from DaVinci's, has indoor seating including private areas for groups or larger families. The seating is well laid out and the interior is like nothing else on the Island. Outdoors you will find lots of seating and a really great and vibrant bar where you can have a drink or enjoy your dinner. The seafood is the best part of the menu but there are lots of steak options as well. They need to work on perpetration of the steaks, in my opinion, as they tend to be over charred for my liking. The scallops are the best I have had world wide. Sea bass melts in your mouth. Try the Black Forest chocolate cake, too

Beautiful restaurant, bar and outdoor dining. Great service and meal. This could be a "once a week choice" for me.

Just Mouth Watering
This is our second experience at Marco Prime on a Saturday night for a party of four. Although the dining room was full, the warm and inviting attention we received was as if we were the first to arrive. On this occasion we all chose fish - one seared scollops and three miso glazed chilian sea bass. Each of these dishes was expertly prepared and plated, perfectly mouth watering with generous portions. It is this attention to detail that brought us back this second time and will so again.

Great Restaurant Excellent Service
This was our second visit to Marco Prime! Service is excellent, this is a beautiful restaurant with great menu! Our party of three enjoyed berry mojitos, fillet mignon, short ribs, truffle fries and the chocolate trio dessert excellent for sharing! Highly recommend Marco Prime.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service was excellent. Had blackberry mojito which was very, very tasty. Petit filet was done very nicely, but just a tad too salty for my taste. Wait staff checked on us frequently and were nicely attentive. The seafood appetizer for 2 was fabulous!! Don't miss that,
I would definitely return!
