    Classic high end American restaurant. Extensive wine list but not overwhelming or overpriced. Oysters rock and shrimp cocktail were just big enough. Duck was right up there with the best we've ever had. Fried leeks as garnish was unnecessary and distracting from meal. We also had then salmon and mahi mahi. Both were done perfectly. There's a reason classic recipes stand the test of time.

    A well thought out layout with great ambiance. Service from experienced and friendly wait staff. House salad was unremarkable and fish had a slight odor plus being served on the hard side of doneness. Pork chop was cooked to perfection. Not sure if another visit is appropriate at these prices.

    The staff is outstanding. Service was excellent. Pace of servings was just right (not hurried, not too slow). Wine was excellent. I liked the atmosphere - makes one feel you’ve left the suburbs for the city. There is no “bad” aspect of Marco’s Kitchen. However, there were a few things that lowered my opinion. A mild stink upon entry greets the patron. The duck and lamb chop were cooked to perfection. Unfortunately, the duck was served cold, and the lamb chops needed to be seasoned more (salt, specifically).

    Food was superior to any restaurant I’ve been to. I ordered the scallops for starter and the Alfredo with lobster amazing and the cheesecake service was a little slow. Had to ask several times for more coffee and the check, but the food was excellent. Definitely five star.

    It was a great atmosphere and our waiter was nice enough. However, I paid a premium price for a filet mignon and had to spit out a third of it due to grizzle. That on top of ordering it well done and getting it served medium (my son ordered well and received medium a also). The onion soup, charred salad, lamb chops and veggie sides were all fresh and divine. The soubise infused with orange and bourbon was wonderful.

    Our first time at Marco’s Kitchen and we were extremely pleased. Staff was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and pleasant. Never felt rushed. Food was outstanding! Marco came and chatted with us a bit before we left so we were able to get to know his story. We will definitely return and recommend to friends.

    We’ve been to Marco’s a few times and have enjoyed our experiences. There is always a wide variety of thoughtfully prepared options to choose from in all categories, land and sea appetizers and entrees, several salads and desserts. Last night we had the bacon wrapped scallops appetizer which was delicious, the mahi mahi and shrimp with a delicious coconut based sauce. The strip steak was cooked perfectly and came with some lovely crisp veggies; unfortunately the steak was tough and almost stringy. The server asked if there was anything else I’d like which felt like the right thing to do. The servers are efficient but generally not warm and fuzzy. And the environment is very loud. Anyone with hearing issues wouldn’t be able to hear anyone else at their table without that person raising their voice considerably.

    Both of us enjoyed our main course very much. However we only had wine by the glass and a main course. Normally we would have had a bottle of wine, appetizers and a main course--maybe dessert and tea/coffee also. The noise level was so obnoxiously loud (energetic is absolutely NOT the appropriate word) that we decided to have only a glass of wine and a main course and get out of the place. It is iffy if we will go back. It is not an inexpensive restaurant and to have the same experience again would be unacceptable. That being said, we enjoyed our food and may consider trying one more time on a weekday instead of a Saturday.

    We came here from Naperville since we had business nearby. Had to park three blocks away on an early Friday evening. Overall it was a great experience but somewhat expensive with 3 drinks. It got pretty noisy when full. Sharply decorated and very good food and menu selection. Waitress attentive but busy. I would go back especially for a special occasion.Nice portions on starter , entrees and dessert. Marco’s is a nice independent upscale restaurant in the Western Suburbs. They obviously did their homework on this operation.

    Great service, great flavors! My husband thought the decaf coffee was weak (and decided getting regular coffee would’ve been the better choice. Next time I’ll try the espresso.) But they gave him a free birthday dessert which was such a sweet touch! We’ll be back with friends.

    Marco’s kitchen is a hidden gem! Small and intimate, and everyone deep in conversation with great food. We had the octopus, and scallops for starters, and duck and lamb chops for entrees. Dessert was crème brûlée and they then gave us more free dessert! Zac was wonderful! Fixed us an amazing sweet drink! We saw Marco as well. All in all, it was a beautiful girls’ night, and I am sure we will be back!

    We came in right at the beginning of dinner, and we met Marco and sat at the bar. we had some drinks. The next waiter/bartender, was able to make a Mocktail for my partner who likes to limit their alcohol. The food was amazing. Marco was very knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. Marco’s kitchen is a very relaxing and was ahappy experience. A cozy spot with great food and a genuinely happy staff for service. The sweetest and most genuine interaction I’ve ever had , was when Marco himself decided to give us a free dessert, that they customize them self. I would highly recommend to anyone to come and visit at least once.
