This restaurant is polarizing. There are those that love it and those that don't. And it really comes down to demographics. The geriatric set swears by tried-and-true American interpretations of Italian food, including the perpetually always on "special" Veal Osso Buco. For younger diners (under age 55) with more contemporary tastes, you'll find the whole experience just kind of sad.... More

We LOVE good Italian food but have difficulty finding restaurants that serve very good food. Too often the emphasis seems to be on "family style" portions. Well this place does it right. We've eaten here several times and we've never been disappointed. The portions are not big but they are adequate and absolutely delicious. As usual, on our most recent... More

I had lunch at "San Marco" a while ago,really enjoyed it,and couldn't wait to try it for dinner. And,so,the good news-bad news begins. The restaurant itself is lovely. The hostess who greeted us couldn't have been nicer. But,when we were asked to wait a few minutes in the bar,the bartender was downright rude: I told him we would wait until... More

My wife and I have been patrons of Ristorante San Marco for many years. We have NEVER had a bad meal! The service is great, the food is prepared to our liking, and it's always delicious. In our opinion, if you want an enjoyable evening with great food, this is one restaurant to definitely consider. It will not disappoint you.... More

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 !!!
