    Server was attentive but they served our salad at the same time they served our hot entree. Don t they think we would like to eat our salad before serving the warm dish? Never had that at finer Resturants Then they had a hard time giving each of the couples their correct bills

    Our first time at Marino’s and we’re very happy with the whole experience. I did make reservations and glad we did. My Bolognese was delicious, creamy but meaty. The pasta was done perfectly. My husband had the Linguine Nero. He was also very happy with his dish, lots of flavorful seafood. Both waiters were attentive. We’ll be back!

    Made a reservation for Valentine’s Day. Everything was outstanding right from the very beginning. The hostesses were friendly and had a great sense of humor! We were seated within a couple of minutes. The waiters were all incredible and very knowledgeable! The food was spot on and absolutely delicious! Again service was spectacular. The owner stopped by our table and I complimented him on the food, staff and how we had driven 50 miles to try his place out. It was well worth the drive!! I highly recommend Marion’s Kitchen and Bar!

    The food sadly wasn’t great. We did the Valentine’s Day special. Our shrimp was raw, our lamb was raw and our steak was raw. We asked for some of the food to be redone and they came back a couple minutes later and it was still raw.

    We went to Marino’s on Valentines night and ordered their special 3 course fixed price dinner. We were sadly disappointed with the main course. The candied beet salad was delicious as well as the lobster bisque (my husband and I shared appetizers). My husband ordered the halibut dinner as his main course which was dry and overcooked. I had the lobster pasta dish which was very bland. I had to ask for Parmesan cheese to top it off and add some flavor. For dessert I ordered the raspberry “”gelato “ which was a block of raspberry ice. It wasn’t even as good as a sorbet. The cost of this dinner ($75/person) was over the top. Because of the bad experience we had, we will not be returning to Marino’s.

    Had a 6:15 reservation and seated ahead of schedule. Sam, our server was great! Everyone enjoyed their entrees except the gluten free pizza eaters did not enjoy their pie. We also had a meat lovers for an appetizer and it was excellent. I’d go back for the pizza. Sam was super!

    Service was good. Food quality is an issue. The Squash Blossoms were COLD inside, which indicated they may be frozen and then reheated? We also had the Chicken Cutlet Sandwich. It was just dry and just okay flavor. The Margarita Pizza was only mediocre. It a nice looking restaurant, it seems a shame that they haven’t put an emphasis on more realistic Italian food. Quality is lacking.

    Butternut ravioli good, different but good. Sautéed shrimp somewhat bland - prefer same at North Italia. So many menu items featuring whipped ricotta - not a fan. Will be back - good food, good service ( from Juliann) and it’s 10 minutes from The MIM.

    Went for a small birthday celebration. We were told everything was made from scratch. Maybe? Asked for sausage to be added to a pasta dish. Sausage was cold. They said they’d remake the dish. Sausage mixed in the steamy pasta, but was still cold. One of the sandwiches was bland. Birthday was not acknowledged.

    We want to extend our sincerest apologies for the negative experience that you had with us. Although we try to make every experience exceptional sometimes we fall short. I am so incredibly sorry your daughter's birthday was not celebrated. We had staffing issues that day and we dropped the ball in terms of noticing the special occasion icon on Open Table. Next time you are in please let us know and we would love to make it up you. Again, we sincerely apologize.

    Have been here few times. Sat at the bar and also dined in once with a small group. I have never been impressed with the service. The staff seems unprofessional and inexperienced- both servers and bartenders. As a patron, I have always felt like an afterthought. It doesn’t seem that there is any type of professional management running the place. Will not be returning after this last experience. There are many other restaurants around the area to go to where you can get better service and a better dining experience.

    The place is nice, service really good, but the food was not We ordered pizza. It came so crispy and dry with barely cheese on it it was a big disappointment, My son ordered pesto pasta. The portion was little and the taste was off with the goat cheese on it it really changed the flavor. We had The Caesar salad it came out as the whole lettuce leaf with little dressing on the top, the Groton tasted bad and old really crunchy. The calamari tasted like rubber very chewy

    The food was alright, nothing amazing. The service was awful. We waited 45 minutes for our first round of drinks to make it the table. Not sure if it was our server or the bartenders that caused the delay. Appetizers and food also took a very long time. We saw people that seemed to be managers walking around but they never touched our table. I don't see this place making it for long.
