Great East Hartford eatery

Marco Polo has been a staple in East Hartford for at least 70 years. We go there almost every Tuesday for dinner. Great food reasonably priced - great management and staff.

Went to a large banquet function for a civic group. Appetizers were a decent pizza selection, very limp small egg rolls, prefab moxxarella sticks and an unknown item because it was never refilled. Salad consisted of plain lettuce in a glass bowl that didn't feed the entire table, had to be refilled on the first pass, with one dressing passed... More

Picked this place out of the internet, looked like a nice restaurant. We walked in and the hostess was very gracious. Sat us in the lounge which was very nice and as we looked at the menu the waitress came over and we placed our order. The appetizer plate was every thing we like on one order, very nice. we... More

This icon has been around for many, many years, and it's not surprising why they have survived. The food is terrific, the staff is friendly and the prices are reasonable.

Although the Marco Polo has been in business forever, they're still a great place to go for a delicious Italian meal. They always have something going on in one of their banquet rooms so it's a busy spot. We had veal francaise which delicious and plentiful enough for leftovers. I had a wonderful, huge bowl of pasta ala vodka with... More

We held our class reunion at the Marco Polo Restaurant and I'm pleased to report that everything was top shelf. The staff was very professional. The food was terrific. Could not have asked for a better time.

Marco Polo has been around for longer than I have been alive. In it''s hayday, it was the place to go. We hadn't been there in years, but last night thought we would try it again. We are glad we did. It isn't white glove service, but the food & prices are the best anyplace. Lobster Bisque is the absolute... More

Every other month on a Friday night, the Marco Polo hosts belly dancing.Each time, they seem unprepared for the amount of meals they have to serve. Doors opened at 6, entertainment at 7. A water girl went around at 6, then never again until after 9:00. We had a table of 7, one person's drink never arrived, 2 others said... More

A travel organization that I am the director of had a luncheon presentation by Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and they gave us a private area and prepared a special three main course menu which met our budget. The food was hot and the staff was excellent, even taking pictures for us of our group. Would definitely recommend them for small... More
