Good choice for brunch

We called in for ham and eggs, croissant French toast and coffee. The espresso coffee machine was broken but the filter coffee was OK. The food was freshly prepared and delicious. The service was friendly.

I have been visiting Marco & Pepe for roughly 8 years now. The food has always been top notch but the service has always been absolute garbage. I'm actually sitting here now and have been waiting for our drinks for roughly 30 minutes. The kicker is there is roughly 8 servers to maybe 30 patrons? I also love that the... More

I like Marco & Pepe, the informal ambiance, the quality of food, the location, etc... This time it was a Sunday and it was very busy, which caused the service to be pretty slow. usually I do not mind it too much but it happened that we were both starving and we had to wait for our food a little...

A small but very high quality, health conscious menu. You actually feel good after eating this food. We go about once every 2-3 months and although some of the menu items stay the same they do rotate others, which we like because trying new things is part of the fun of eating out. The portion sizes are average, but filling.... More

An agreeable setting in an area very reminiscent of Brooklyn. Very quick and courteous service. I had an OK Caesar Salad. Delicious mini lamb chops and an excellent ,medium rare small burger, My companions were divided about the mac and cheese. One loved it; the other thought the cheese lacking in taste. Pretty good wine list.

It's our second time here . The food is consistent . Especially seafood. But the bartender who thinks he is cool, has to be the worst server in history. And I am in the hospitality industry. I hope the owners will get rid of the hipsterish dufus.

Marco & Pepe has an inviting look and ambiance.With limited means it has managed to design the little corner restaurant.The menu follows the current trends, price-wise a bit more expensive than its neighbors, but OK for the quality you get.Marco & Pepe got casual but attentive wait staff.

We enjoyed our meal here so much. The staff was terrific, the ambiance is great, and the food is very very good. And all reasonably priced. A great little find.

Wonderful decoration, amazing food, their coffee is nice, the only downpart is there isn't room for parking right outside the restaurant, but it's worth a mini-walk.
