Always wonderful food and very accommodating. Had a great meal with my family
I've been a customer for years and I've never been disappointed. Food and service are outstanding.
We’ve come to expect excellence and are never disappointed. Wonderful meals - rack of lamb and filet mignon, nice wine list, great desserts and cappuccino. Always a great experience. Service attentive by not intrusive. Ambience is romantic and elegant.
A friend and I went here for our birthday lunch and the food was amazing. We both had the arugula salad and the seafood ravioli and couldn't stop raving about how good everything was.
Good Italian fare. Not so imaginative but quality consistently good . Calamari great. Dessert ok. Service good. A bit noisy.
I have always love to dine at Ristorante San Marco for the ambiance and good food. For the 4-5 times I have dined there, the food has always been good . The mushroom risotto was so tasty; the salt-encrusted branding was moist and buttery. However, the lobster tail was tough and chewy; the shrimp stuffed with crabmeat was swimming in a milk-based sauce. The last dining experience was disappointing but I will still go back there.
Just love San Marco! There were five of us and each order was carefully taken after a brilliant recitation by our waiter, describing each of the items. All of us were individually served with aplomb. We will all return to San Marco over and over .
It‘s an authentic Italian restaurant with good food.
The house white is $9.50, which I would consider too much for a basic Pinot Grigio.
Also check prices of dishes not on the menu before ordering them to avoid surprises.
Great service with excellent food. We ate on the sidewalk as we had 6 in our group and a dog to keep at our feet. Had the lunch combo - a huge amount of food and reasonable price. Real Italian waiters added to the atmosphere.We will be going back.
Great place for excellent Italian food! Save a trip to the city and head here instead! Always consistently good! The bartender, Chris, is super nice and makes great drinks! The music adds to the old-world atmosphere. A gem!
Restaurant is in well appointed older building. Very inviting atmosphere. Too numerous daily specials to do verbally. Became very confusing. They should be put on a printed sheet.
Nice Italian old world charm with excellent service. The only problem was our waiter was so heavily accented I couldn't understand him and I don't think he understood me. So trying a Martini for the first time was disappointing because either there wan't a drink menu or they only serve standard martini's since our waiter didn't understand what I was asking for. Other than that everything else went well as an English speaking waiter told us the specials and took our order.
Favorite Italian restaurant! Best food in town. Highly recommend
Food was great but the service was horrible. It was Valentine's Day , we were never told of limited menu.
Even though the food was awesome we did not like the idea we had to order off a fixed menu with INFLATED prices!
We were not offered bread we had to ask for it! No butter or oil! Had to ask for more water and once dinner was over it took forever to get our check and then we had to to stand to get the attention of the hostess to pay! I guess we can chalk it up to the night being Valentine’s Day ,but the service should always be the same,good!! I’d give them another try but not on a special occasion!
Food was great. Service effective. Somewhat overpriced.
We had a very enjoyable meal It was Valentine's Day so they had a special menu for the day which offered a variety of choices. Even though it was a holiday, the service was not rushed , the food was very good and we were able to have a nice celebration. We look forward to going back when we can order from the regular menu.
This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always done perfectly and the selections are terrific. I had the black Lobster Ravioli topped with seafood, it was wonderful. The fried calamari was among the best I ever had, very tender and crispy too! The expresso was very tasty, and served with a lemon twist to finish the fabulous dining. Definitely a go to place!!!
Always a special time
The dove sole and lobster salade are the best in the state
This is one of our favorite restaurants. A go to when we feel like treating ourselves. There is always a good selection of specials, especially fish in addition to the regular menu. We usually order the gnocchi in gargonzola sauce as our pasta course. Hand made and so light. Their seafood bisque and raw oysters are also favorites. The food is a little pricey but worth it.
The service is very good. The restaurant can be a little noisy on a Saturday night but not so much that you can't hold a conversation. Plan to arrive a little early so you can enjoy a drink in the piano bar.
Ristorante San Marco has become a regular spot for us. We are there probably 3 times a month, so almost once a week. The menu is large enough and changes enough (with many items as specials and not on the menu that is online) that it never gets boring. Food is delicious and expertly prepared, plentiful and served hot (a pet peeve of mine). They have a large wine list that is fairly priced but as an added bonus - if you are so inclined - they allow personal wine to be brought and there is a $15 per bottle corkage fee (very reasonable) except on Monday and Tuesday when corkage is free. A nice separate bar area with a piano player Thursday through the weekend is a nice touch. There are few truly authentic high end old school Italian restaurants in the area. Normally you get either pedestrian red gravy joints or stuff that is so haute cuisine that you can't tell what you're eating and you come away hungry. San Marco makes it the way mama made it and you won't go away any way other than satiated and satisfied.
Never had a bad experience there. Great food and very friendly owner and staff.
Outstanding food and service. Excellent presentation. A most enjoyable dining experience .
The food was phenomenal! We went there for my mother's birthday on a Saturday night. The waiters were pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu, but they seemed a bit overwhelmed with how crowded the restaurant was. The waiter listed about 10 different specials and two of us ordered the grouper that was a special. The grouper was fantastic! I would definitely go there again just for the fish. The only negatives amount the meal was how rushed the staff seamed to be and it seemed that it stemmed from the owner who was running around and bumping in to guests. My husband had a leg brace on from a recent surgery and the brace is very obvious to everyone. The owner and wait staff ran in to him several times. One of the waiters actually apologized on behalf of the owner and others. We will definitely be going back just for the food and will go on a slower night. Hopefully, everyone will move a little slower and we won't feel so rushed.
Italian food always exquisite, great food specials,
service impeccable, excellent wines
The food was delicious, great menu and specials selection, excellent and fast service. Enjoyed the piano bar for an after dinner drink.
Great place to celebrate a special occasion. The fish specials are excellent. My favorite pasta is the papparadelle porcini.
Saturday evening it was very noisy. Food came out overdone. Waiter never came back to see if we needed water or anything throughout the dinner. It was all just ok. Not good enough for the price they charge.
Neighbor gem. BYOB on Mon and Tue. Friendly service, Good food. Will be back soon
We haven't been back for many months...out of our neighborhood but do come before Act 2 Playhouse around the corner. 4 Of us were welcomed from the moment we came in. The waiters are from "the old days"....attentive, professional but friendly and accommodating. Then there's the menu....whatever the kitchen prepares (mostly Italian) is delicious....my leftover osso bucca is in the fridge (portion huge and every mouthful delicious. Split an avacado salad...beautifully prepared. Fish, meat or pasta ...they've got it all. 2 desserts outstanding.
We haven’t been here for a while. The food was excellent. Service was slow.
Excellent food and great place to take a client. I bring my client for lunch when in the area.
People were very friendly, food was great. Wine was just fantastic
Will be back again
The service was not the usual attentiveness! I know it was Christmas Eve but with the prices they charged I think maybe they needed more help or less reservations to make up for lousy service.
A top notch Italian Restaurant. Food is nicely plated and very tasty. They have almost as many specials as standard menu items, but best to ask prices as many specials are more expensive than standard menu selections.
Had a birthday lunch and it was lovely. Had lobster and shrimp crabcake and pasta with seafood. Both delicious. Service was excellent, not rushed at all. Will return soon.
Never disappoints. Large selection of well made classic Italian dishes but also many with their own spin. Portions are generous. NOTE - the menu online is only the beginning. There are many, many daily specials. There are always fish, veal and often lamb specials, special apps and Monday and Tuesday are free BYOB nights. Well worth it although their wine list pricing is very fair with many nice selections. Frankly as good or better than any Italian restaurant in the City.
Very impressed with this restaurant greeted by the owner upon arrival. The food was amazing and the portion was large. Would definitely return!
This is one of my all-time favorite restaurants. Every time I go I plan to get something different, but I always get the Branzino. It is the BEST in the world! I miss Francesco but the new bartender Chris is GREAT! Will definitely return!
Amazing food and attentive staff.
