Diner Reviews
  • "I'm just thrilled with San Marco. It's my favorite place to dine. The whole experience is perfect from the reservation to the dining. San Marco is the best."

  • "We've been here several times and always walk away very happy"
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "We were there on a Saturday evening. Food was mostly good. Lobster bisque had a tad too much salt. The bread was decent although we were not offered cheese for the olive oil while others were. Water glasses were filled only once. Servers were not very friendly and there was a woman who brought our food who didn't crack a smile Not did she say " goodbye, thank you, please come again". Some folks appeared to get whatever They wanted. Perhaps these were regulars? Oh and the cream puff was still frozen when it was served. We felt rushed although we waited a long time for our entres which were good!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The food was excellent. Service, not so much. Not up to the professional standards one would expect from such an establishment. Prices are very high and for that I expect not only great food but superior service as well. The waiter was very "laid back", the bus boy did not even look us in the eye."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "After about 10 minutes, we had to ask for the menu. We sat for another 5 minutes before we were asked for a drink order. Two people ordered lamb chops which were sent back because they were to rare. Came back well done. One guest did not eat and left 2/3s. You would think the waiter would ask if you want to take home or was something wrong. Neither was asked. Have gone here three or four times in the past year. Will not return. There are many other places to go for better service and food."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Had to wait more than 1 hour beyond reservation until seated. Why take a reservation ? Service very slow. Will not return. I suggest you try somewhere else"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We enjoyed everything about our meal from the olive oil and bread to the excellent salmon dish! Great service, too!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "This is my third time at the restaurant. Caesar salad is just ok, Dover sole excellent, veal good, hazelnut ice cream outstanding. The nicest part of San Marco is that they offer multiple specials each night and they have wonderful music in the bar. The service can be a bit snooty with a particular waiter, but I guess it's part of the charm? ;-)"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "This will be the last time I go here. Don't need the high prices, pretentious ownership, and just fair food I can get elsewhere for less."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "It's now a regular place we go to on special occasions, with family and close friends. You can't go wrong with their food, service and friendliness of the staff."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Overall a little disappointing. Everyone was very nice but the food was just ok (not spectacular), plus they got one person's order wrong twice (both her appetizer and entree) and another person's food was not cooked right (ravioli). A real shame because the restaurant is very nice, even upscale I would say. We'll probably give it another chance, maybe this was just a bad night."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Very disappointed--I will simply list the issues here: 1). Specials too long and difficult to understand 2). A simple beverage like iced tea was terrible tasting--was sent back and new one just as bad 3). Tuna Carpaccio appetizer had no flavor or taste 4). One of my dining partners had Osso Buco which was over cooked and terrible--this was sent back. 5). Worst Italian bread ever for a restaurant charging higher end prices--bread was not fresh at all. I am not from the area, but if this Italian restaurant was in the West Chester, PA area where I am from, they would have no chance to still be in business!"

  • "We arrived at 5 pm and were seated. Although the restaurant was empty, 3 other couples were immediately seated in the adjoining tables. The waiter said there were a lot of specials, so he was only going to repeat such once - he then rapidly offered the specials to ALL 4 tables simultaneously. I ordered grilled radicchio and calamari - the calamari was wonderful but the radicchio consisted of one small leaf that was not grilled. We ordered one gelato between us for dessert - when the bill came, the gelato was charged at $37. When I questioned the waiter, he came back and said that he had mistakenly charged our table for the desserts for all 4 tables, and said "I am glad that you caught such". No apology. Food good, service deplorable."

  • "Consistently good fresh fish and homemade pasta. Nice piano bar for a pre-dinner drink."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "The prosciutto e melon was ok. Melon was not ripe, prosciutto was good quality but sparse with literally frozen grapes on top at $12. The tagliatelle bolognese was delicious at $20. Apple tart wads very good at $8. Service was not very attentive; which brothers me the most for the type of restaurant and atmosphere. $52 without tip. I don't think I'll be back. :-("

  • "This place continues to amaze me ,, service is top notch and the food is outstanding.We try to get here two times a month. Keep up the great work."

  • "Always excellent food and service! Have never been disappointed..."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Food was excellent, and service was attentive and friendly. Only complaint was the noise level. It became so loud by the end of our meal that we had to cut our gathering short to leave."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "The restaurant was a little more crowdwd and noisier then usual but this was expected because of the day. Still a great experience."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We were there on Valentine's Day. They had a "special" menue only, with very special prices. This restaurant is always on the very high side as far as meal pricing, but this day was extreme. We also felt rushed in the service as if they were trying to get extra setting in for the night. Food was very good - as usual."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We could not have picked a better spot to celebrate our marriage that afternoon. Wait staff excellent and attentive and food superb!"
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "I have only been to San Marco three times, but they are consistently some of the best meals I have ever had - and the dining experience matches the caliber of the food. I highly recommend this restaurant!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Frozen defrosted ingredients- seafood was flavorless. Pasta was old. Not worth it for the price"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Knowledgeable waiter, extensive wine list, everything is delicious, attractive and memorable. We dine here once or twice a year and the experience is consistently a taste treat."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "My husband and mother made sure that the restaurant knew it was my birthday and wanted to bring a chocolate cake and were told they were not allowed to do so and they would put a candle in their Chocolate Dessert. My husband and mother also reminded them when we got there. Then instead of surprising me with a candle in the dessert they came with a tray and asked me what I wanted and I chose the chocolate Soufflet. Then they came back and said there wasn't any and we were at the 6:30 seating. They really ruined a wonderful birthday dinner with not just bringing out the dessert with the candle in it for my birthday since I have always had a cake and this is the first birthday I can remember that I did not have a cake on my birthday!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "We been coming here for years The food,service and drinks are always top of the line. The seafood is the freshest around and the veal is out of this world. Try the lobster salad for a stater. Always plenty of special apps and entrees. Can't wait to go back. Oh yea, they always have live piano music playing which makes the atmosphere extremely relaxing and romantic"
    Dined on 1/13/2014
  • "The food and service were what you would expect from a restaurant with $30.00 entrees. One problem we (my wife and I) had was that there were about 8 specials which made it difficult to remember what they all entailed. Why not just print up a "Specials" menu so that you can review them and make a selection if you so choose. Because my wife had to go to work that night we were unable to spend any time in the Piano Bar which looked appealing. We did think that maybe the drinks were a bit overpriced."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "Very welcoming personnel, excellent food and wine, service watchful, efficient and non-interruptive. Rack of lamb with compote berries, roasted potatoes and fresh crunchy veggies was superb, great arugula salad with shaved parmesan, unusual pinoli cake for dessert. Although the wine steward provided excellent wines, it would have been nice to have consulted a wine list (w/ prices) and to hear prices along with the evening's "specials" too. On the whole, a very special evening."
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "Pros: The Clams Casino, Stuffed Veal Chop and Pasta Bolognese were delicious. Service was outstanding. Cons: Cesar salad was a tad bitter and the Dover Sole was just OK. Initially tried to seat us in a cramped corner table with an open floor plan, but were willing to let us switch. Snowy night and the parking lot was a little dicey to navigate."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "We had New Year's Eve dinner at San Marco. Everything went well and the food was delicious. We came in at 6:30 and the restaurant was not yet crowded."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "San Marco did a sensational job on New Years Eve. We only waited 5 minutes for our table. The food was delicious and the service timely. Considering there was a full load of customers that night everything ran smoothly with the excellent wait staff and kitchen staff."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "This was our first time here and it was an absolutely great experience. From the impeccable service to deliciously fresh and homemade food it was so much greater than we ever expected. We will definitely be dining here again."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "A great place for family, friends or gathering Decent wine selection All flavorful prepared menus, served in proper temperature, prompt service A favorite of ours nearby for family and relative gatherings."

  • "As always the evening was perfect even on a very busy Holiday! Love love love San Marco!"
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "I made the reservation for 7pm on Christmas Eve - they didn't seat us until close to 8pm. By this time we were not happy and way too hungry. No apologies - just hurry up and get seated. The food and service was very good, but I don't think I would return to this restaurant"
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "It is always a wonderful time at San Marco. The food is delicous and the service is amazing."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "We got there at 5.30, and were (party of four) seated right next to a noisy table of 12, yet the remainder of the restaurant was empty. Struggled to hear the whole meal. Got the crostini app and it was some hard toast with a little tomato and tiny amounts of basil on top. Asked for some olive oil and there was a small bottle of second or third pressing oil on the table. Meal was OK, and pricey. Entire meal was way to expensive for what we received. For first time in my life the owner kicked us out of our table/told us to leave. It was the weekend before Christmas, and maybe a regular time would be different. I won't be back. We would have been better going to Carrabbas."

  • "Always consistent with food, drink and service-in our backyard. Great for a special occasion or just a great dinner"
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "the bar had friendly atmosphere, the food was good but the dinning area was bright with no ambiance with people trying to speak over each other i felt like i was at one big party than a quite romantic dinner with my wife. I think they need to dim the lighting add some candles on the tables may than would tone down some of the other patrons."
