5 years ago I had lunch here and ordered the dover sole that they debone at your table. It was magic. It was one of the most memorable meals I've ever had. I don't know about you, but there are a few meals that I've had that have been unbelievably good and you are afraid they could never be duplicated.... More

We went the week before Christmas when many places are kinda stressed, but everything went smoothly at San Marco. The attention from the staff was both personal and professional. Several of us had the dover sole which was fileted tableside and was excellent. Another had the lamb which was also rated excellent... we shared a creme brulee which was also... More

This restaurant always is on its game. The food is always spectacular and the service wonderful. My favorite is the Branzino. Salt-crusted and filleted at table side. Service is always great. Love this place.

Our weekday lunch was unhurried and nicely prepared. The tomato bisque with fresh crabmeat was delicious, as was the appetizer of figs wrapped in prosciutto with fresh greens and Parmesan. The lemon vinaigrette overwhelmed the taste of the arugula salad, which was disappointing. The elegant atmosphere of the dining room was spoiled only by the people who seemed to be... More

Dine here at least every 6 weeks, and have always had a great meal.Staff is always attentive, and kitchen does a phenomenal job..Very good wine list... Can be pricey if ordering off the menu,ie, specials, but they are worth it!!! Try the Bronzino, a can't miss !!!

This is a local restaurant so we wanted to love it but, after multiple disappointing visits, we're giving up. This time around the food was bland, dry, and-- as always -- overpriced for the quality. The servers were nice, but they couldn't salvage a mediocre meal and experience. We've been to Italy -- certainly NOT EVEN CLOSE to the food... More

Always excellent! San Marco is our family's favorite restaurant and it is also great for business meetings. We are very picky about Italian food and you won't be disappointed.

Being Italian I am very fussy when it comes to Italian restaurants. This is the real thing. NO chicken on pasta or spaghetti with gravy! Very gentile atmosphere with wonderful service. I have been many times and never disappointing! My son even picked this for his elementary school graduation celebration lunch and I gladly complied! They didn't have Bucatini All'amatriciana,...

Worst experience ever, first time we ever had to walk out of a restaurant. There was one man who appeared to be the only waiter for the room. He took forever to come over to our table to ask us if we wanted drinks. When he did he displayed a very arrogant and smug attitude toward us. A server than... More
