My wife and I went here for our 17th wedding anniversary, and we are glad we did. The first thing I liked is the reservation. We didn't want to wait for a long time to get seated. We were the first ones there and the host was nice. The servers were friendly and knowledgeable. The food was absolutely delicious. I got the lasagna and my wife got the salmon. We both got the minestrone soup. The lasagna was some of the best I ever had and my wife said the same of the salmon. Our only (small) complaint we had were the portion sizes. For the price, we did expect more food. Outside of that it was perfect. This place is great for special occasions!

We used to go and eat at a restaurant at this location and it was great. Not anymore. Our waiter had to make our drinks and others. Came by the table very little took at least ten minutes to get a drink. Appetizer was good not great. The salad was a joke such a pitiful attempt. My “sea scallops” has that ammonia taste like when a shark not cleaned properly. The owner and/or manager opened a bottle of wine and I guess did some “work” at a table while the lack of service went on around him. I have no issue with slow service if it and the food is good. Thanks Marcos for ruining our 23rd anniversary dinner one we will remember for a long time.

Delicious food, excellent service, nice atmosphere - what more can you ask for?

Attentive to their customers - we commented to our waiter (halfway through the meal) that our table had a little wobble. Marco came over and offered to move us to another table! We declined.

This was a good experience. Service and food were both excellent. I’m not sure if there is a piano player each night but enjoyed it on this weekend visit. The fried oysters as an appetizer are truly delicious. Pair it with a Caesar salad. The chicken piccata was quite good.

Radio music was too loud and inappropriate for the type of restaurant trying to be upscale. We were disappointed with the food, the lasagna was inappropriately named and the veal was tough.

Our party of four with seated next to a very large party. Our table was barely large enough for two; the menus didn’t fit and we had to remove the centerpiece to have space for wine. The food was flavorless and was not served hot. The service was indifferent, at best, and did not effectively handle small “special” requests.

Marco's is a hidden gem and the hostess is always a delight. Our server which I cannot remember her name was very attentive. Only criticism I have is each time I have gone I always have to ask for bread it is never brought to the table with your salad.

Ever see Caddy Shack where Rodney Dangerfiekd walks into the Golf Club and insults all the nattily dressed white haired waspy members? That is what it felt like dining at this place. Food was VERY good. Wait staff was also very good and the owner came by the table and was very friendly. It just seemed like the "19th hole" of a count try club. All the white hairs men were in the same Andrea's sport costs, white shirt and tan pants. Turns out THERE iS a golf club across the street. BTW-the flourless chocolate tort was incredible.

We love Marco's. The food is always wonderful and we love the piano music during dinner. It is just soft enough to be in the background but we are still able to have good conversation. We loved being seated at a round table, again because conversation is easier with the entire group and we can see everyone.

I rated it lower overall because the service was not up to par. One member of our table ordered the sea bass in salt and it came our first. The waitress was not completely confident in the filet process. The other meals came out one by one rather than all at once and one member did not receive their meal until much, much later than the rest. The group, being polite, waited and the members who selected fish had cold food by the time everyone was served. The restaurant was not at all packed and busy the evening we ate there so I don't think this was a factor. For the price (over $350 for a group of six), this was just not acceptable. Again, we love Marco's and will come again but would love for the service to be more in line with the food which is exceptional.

I have always been a fan until this visit. I lived in the area for months and used to go frequently. I went back this last time with hopes of good food and good service that I have had before. Well, no such luck! The chicken was dry and the service was horrid. I'm sorry if I don't look older and distinguished like some of your guests may look. You asked what was wrong and why there was 85-90% of the chicken left and we told you it was dry. You asked if we wanted something to replace it and we said no because we had been there for almost two hours already and still had another hour and a half drive. Well Marco you just lost someone who used to be a fan, sing your praises and recommended to everyone that I could.
