We believe in an afternoon spritz, pasta for lunch, a good espresso or two, and taking a refreshing dip between courses. An inviting al fresco dining experience with a low-key locals vibe. Everyone welcome!

We loved our food, service and ambiance. Now we want to stay at the hotel and swim in the pool. Loved the location as well. Great spot!

The FOH service staff was kind and very helpful. The price was fair and the environment was clean. The table was nice and the dining space was comfortable.

They weren’t very busy - maybe 5 tables max so I wish they would’ve given full drink and food descriptions when dropping food - including sourcing.

They only touched the table to drop or clear - which is fine. The drinks were very stiff and overly exaggerated in description with little no other notes.

Wouldn’t recommend this restaurant.

Comfortable patio atmosphere with limited menu. Food was mixed, Bass was excellent but hamburger was overcooked. Good fries. Menus only available on a phone using a QR code, no hard copies at all! I know it's kind of a hipster place, but really? Not one xerox copy? Almost spoiled the experience.
After dark it's very hard to find the restaurant, poorly signed. Having valet parking was great, but there was no indication that the valet needed to be paid for inside the restaurant. The atmosphere made up for it.

Service was slow at the beginning to get to us once we sat down. Otherwise great. But then, at the end of our meal, they kept coming back to see if we paid the check. And server said, "We close at 10pm." and we were shooed out of there. NOT COOL.

I have been to this place many times. The food is really good , the crowd great . Unfortunately , the service is just fine and something is always missing . Last time , it was cold ( it’s all outdoors ) and there were 3 heat lamps for the entire restaurants . When I asked , the answer was that there were missing gas tanks . It’s LA and there is a gas station 2 mn away ….

Don't you just hate it when the host/hostess insists that you take the tiny table because you are a party of two and then proceeds to seat the next couple and then a single person in much more comfortable and larger tables. And, yet, I was the one with the rez.

I did request the bigger table with the comfy pillows but was asked to pick a smaller two top. Of course, I didn't complain because...well...manners but I was with a client and I won't go there again.

They were short staffed. We stood At the check-in desk for 10 minutes before anyone even checked us in. Once we were seated, we sat another 20 minutes with no service at all. So we left

The outdoor space is great and is the only reason why I would return. Service was poor and indifferent. Cocktails tasted good but were tiny and weak, so as to increase their margins even more. Would not order again. We had two pastas ($20 and $22) and they were tasty. Menu is limited. It's mostly about the outdoor ambiance here, nothing more. Our bill after an 18% tip was $150 and the only food we had was the two main dishes noted above -- so beware if you order any cocktails or alcohol here. You'd be better off ordering a bottle of wine and sticking to that.

I’ve loved coming to Marco Polo. They have simple and very delicious food and very special atmosphere of resort place just in a middle of Silver Lake. Our personal favourites are Cacio Pepe pasta, burger, cucumber salad with side of chicken, burrata. Their food is always delicious and we are happy coming back. But most recently service level declined a lot. People wait 2-3 minutes to be greeted at entrance, then wait another 5 minutes for the server to offer drinks, then the server forgets to ask if I want another drink - not a good experience. I hope they solve their management issues and people will again enjoy delicious food and perfect service.

This is the 2nd time at Marco polo--I was there for happy hour and this time for lunch.
The waiter was terrible, not friendly, and could care less about us. The food also was not cooked well enough and the olive and nut side was so greasy this time. We had to ask for refills many times and we waited awhile for the check, and to pay. What a drastic difference!!! I expected more consisetncy--I brought a friend after I raved about my experience recently and she was not happy with the meal at all.
