Marco Polo has just undergone
Marco Polo has just undergone a renovation,which is very appealing. The food here is always good; the prices moderate; the selections vary and can accommodate all tastes and desires. The staff is attentive and considerate and welcomes its customers in a nice, appreciative way.
We were seated next to a group of 8 very NOISY men,but the wait staff helped us to move when we requested to do so; they understood our plight.

This was our first visit to
This was our first visit to Marco Polo, although we have been to Enoteca on Court. We were very impressed with Marco Polo's transformation-the decor is exquisite. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the food delicious and artfully presented.
We shared octopus and a salad with beets to start-both excellent.The menu was diverse and Carlo's suggestions were great. I especially enjoyed the shrimp entree which was cooked to perfection.
Looking forward to returning to try other interesting selections.

I had gone once years ago
I had gone once years ago and was not impressed, but I decided to give it another try after they renovated. I'm glad I did! The service was a little slow and spotty at times, but all the food and drinks we had were great and we had a really enjoyable time. I'd definitely go back.

This was the only place I have been to in New York that I felt like it was authentic italian food. Most of the patrons were Italian, and they even brought over complimentary lemoncello at the end of the meal. Fantastic!

Mother's Day at Marco Polo
The dinner selections were great for Mother's Day. The service was excellent. Marco, the owner, made it his business to visit every table. Marco Polo is a great fun experience even on the holidays. Carlo is a wonderful waitor. His suggestions are good choices and should be followed.

A great find on court street
We were 3 couples on a recent sat nite and had a great dinner! I had requested a round table and we were given a round table,so we were off to a good start. We told the waiter we had to make a show at Barclay center and he prontly got our order going. The salads were terrific, one of us had a Caesar salad and he raved about it, The spinach and beet salad were also terrific. The fresh mozzarella was light and fresh. The main dishes were also good, though I thought the salmon a little dry, pasta dishes were good. Dessert nothing great , though all in all we were pleasantly surprised.

I entertained 13 clients here
I entertained 13 clients here with last minute notice. They were very accommodating in getting us in.
Appitizers were a big hit, and we ordered many of them. Main course(s) also good, though some felt there meals were too plain (Chicken and Prosciutto). I personally had no complaints with my entire meal.
I'll be back next time in Denver.

Good to Go !
I occasionally take clients there for dinner, and I am always profusely thanked for the dining experience! The food is good, ambiance great, and you can easily talk business while dining. It just flows ! The staff there is outstanding, attentive and go out of their way to ensure that you are satisfied with everything from soup to nuts. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I have been dining at Marco Polo Ristorante for years. And it never disappoints. Over the last couple of years i have seen a nice difference in the menu. The menu ideas are fresher, simple, clean, seasonal----yet totally gourmet. What i love about the menu is that it is not too long. Yet I want to try everything and it is difficult to choose. What I love about all the menu options that i have tried thus far-- they aren't over-sauced or over-seasoned. It is simplicity at its absolute best. The wait staff is very helpful and visible throughout the meal.

Really excellent neighborhood place, I had a great beet salad and portobello mushroom and chicken dish, my husband had the lobster risotto, everything was really well made and fresh and a great surprise. Seems like an old time red sauce place but it turned out to be a really fresh look at familiar dishes.
Very enjoyable and the wait staff was wonderful. The place was surprising empty for a Monday evening, maybe it's under the radar in such an over saturated neighborhood.
