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

I got married at Marco Polo on August 17, 2001! the food was excellent! the Wedding host is really what made us choose Marco. It was like talking to a best friend and the friend knew exactly what to do. Even years after, when we go to eat, she remembers our name. now that is special. We had 50 guest,... More

It's been many year since we had a party in their private room [which holds up to 32] but I wanted to give it a try since it's really hard to find another venue for such a weird number of guests. I was SO pleasantly surprised by the wonderfully easy and smooth experience both Koolah, the event manager, and our... More

We brought my mom with us to Sunday Brunch today. Wow! The buffet style brunch has all the traditional items and, in addition, a carving station with roast beef (horseradish sauce is there if you wish) and a station for made-to-order omelets! We arrived early and the food was plentiful and piping hot. The clam chowder is wonderfully thick and... More

I held my mom's 75th surprise birthday party here. We had the brunch. My god what a great selection of food. They waited on us hand and foot. I wanted to have the party here because my parents were engaged at this place many years back. They always spoke highly of it, and they were right. The price for the... More

Wow! What a performance. Kudos to all the dancers! It was great! Very large crowd in a banquet room. Looked like standing room only! I ordered their Calamari, which comes with a marinara sauce. Normally I don't like restaurant marinara. This was a great marinara, don't be afraid to order it. It's almost as good as mine. The Calamari was... More
