Expected nothing but a cozy atmosphere, with decent food and service... and this place failed on every level!! \r

We found this place by accident. Loved the music and the food was excellent. The customer service we rec'd was spot on.
No complaints at all.. we went back the next week, different time of day and still spot on service.

AWESOME

We have been going to Marco's for 4 or 5 years now and almost always have a great experience. There is the occassional over-done steak or salty soup or waiter not really that good, but we still go back. This past Sat. night however we were treated very badly by our waiter (the short one on the patio). For some reason I was made to feel bad just because I said my steak was overcooked. He actually argued with me and said "...it looks okay to me". To which I replyed, "Yeah, but you're not the one eating it." And he took it away, finally. We'll go back of course and recommend anyone try it too. The patio is lovely, most the waiters very good, and the Filet ala Dina awesome.

Pros: Steaks and specials are consistently great

Cons: Avoid the short waiter on the patio

Marco's is overpriced, the food is okay, but not any better than something I could cook myself and the service is SLOW. I was very disappointed when I ate dinner here.

I had dinner last night at Marco's. After waiting almost an hour for dinner, my fish was dry and overcooked. I sent it back and asked for the bill. When I checked the charges (there were 3 of us), I found they charged me for the baked potato and salad. I promptly asked to speak to the manager and when I relayed the events of the night, was told "they are not a chain so they can't comp everything." He went on to say that the dry fish was only my opinion. In the end, I have never had such poor service or spoken with such a rude manager. I will definitely not go back but, I guess they have enough business without me.

If you want crappy service with an attitude try Marco's! I've run restaurants and this place was awful - from the salty food to the rushed waiter - to waiting repeatedly for water, even after asking for it several times - they actually came by and took the tip while we were sitting there - THIS PLACE IS CLASSLESS and TOTALLY CLUELESS - I would not send my enemies here - too cruel - Be sure and ask for BJ (yes BJ) the worst waiter you have ever met - rush, rush, rush - rent must have been due - just plain awful!!!

I am Italian and knows about good Italian food. The food here is mediocre not nearly at the level of other local Italian restaurants in the area. Staff doesn't have any idea of good service, particularly the bitter and unpleasant hostess.
Very small and overcrowded. WIll never go back!

We now live close to this place and have heard good things about the steak... We have given it a chance but I must finally say... Why would someone go here when you could get better @ The Aristocrat, Mo and Johnny's, the BR Brew Pub and others in the area... Why would some one want to sit on a patio that close to a loud major intersection? There are some great patios at the other places... But the important part, the food... My wife got the worst can of clams tossed on some old pasta she has ever seen! My sausage was good but when we asked the waiter to take her pasta off the menu, the waiter said he did not have the authority to do so. I have NEVER heard of such a thing in my life! had to ask for the manager, get excuses before offering the refund. I didnt feel like we needed to continue to tell our case to get the dish she was not going to eat off the bill...
On another try of the place we witnessed this snooty waiter arguing with another table and after the owner was called over this guy still wouldnt stop and had to be [gently] pushed away by the owner... It was weird. Food only normal that time.
So, food not good enough to suffer through that kind of service and sit in that type of atmosphere...

Pros: cost

Cons: service, ambience (road traffic right there)

We live in the area, and by far Marco's is one of our favortie places to have dinner with friends. It has a warm cozy atmosphere, great continental cuisine and excellent service. It is one of those places where we take our guests visiting from out-of-town when they want to experience unique local fare.

P.S. be sure to check out "Cheap Meat Night" - Tuesday nights they have an excellent 6 oz Filet, Baked Potato and Salad for only $9.95! Be sure to get reservations in advance though!
