“Great Time for a Large Group of Customers and Spouses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

Just got back from our first time at eating at Marco Polo. I saw the rave reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to try it. They sent their limo to pick us up at the Marriott Marco Island Beach. As everyone says, ignore the outside. The inside is great. The food and wine were fantastic. The music on a Sunday evening was great. My guests kept walking over to the piano to confirm that the guy was playing himself. Most of us ate the Mahi Mahi special which melted in your mouth. One person had the rack of lamb. I think he even ate the bones it was so good. Another guy had the bone in rib eye. One guest could not eat wheat, so they specially made the Mahi Mahi without a breading. He did not complain and he is very picky. We had several wine experts in the group and they were not disappointed. This was one of our best dining experience with customers.

“Nicer restaurant on the island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Wonder food, loved the Caesar salad made by the table. Shrimp cocktail was only 2 pieces and the lobster soup was a bit salty. Main courses were all delicious! We shared creme brulee for a birthday dessert. Our waiter seemed to rush us a bit, as we had a later reservation, but that was only a minor detail. Free limo pickup was a great surprise for the birthday girl!!

“Fantastic must go!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

Excellent, what a fantastic experience from start to finish. We booked the restaurant for the whole family 5 adults, 2 kids. When we phoned to make a reservation they asked if we would like to be picked up by the limousine, which was on time and took us to the restaurant where we were then met by the owner on arrival. The cocktails and the food were amazing and the waiter was brilliant and answered any questions we had about the menu.. They made the children feel very welcome, and if I am honest we went back again 2 days later... I Would highly recommend you try this restaurant you will not be disappointed...

“Unreal Kitsch, great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

Like a Vegas throwback from the 70s - the floor, the walls and the ceiling are all the color of red wine! This place is out of the way and not much to see from the outside. Inside there is live piano music which was nice, strings of white holiday lights around the bar, a cocktail server who did nothing but run the entire floor only for cocktails (a nice touch!). The food and wine was excellent and reasonably priced, the owner and manager run the floor. Old school and very good.

“Wonderful restaurant, great service, old supper club feel, and great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Must experience the Marco Polo restaurant to enjoy a wonderful evening with live dinner music, great food, excellent service and friendly owners, Tommy and Karen. Extensive menu with something for everyone. Our "must go" stop whenever we come to Florida. The grouper was great and the fried calamari perfect.
