Relaxed without sacrificing any quality

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... read 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.

While visiting family in Jersey City, I got to eat twice at Marco & Pepe -- once for Sunday Brunch and a second time for dinner just before this past Easter. Each time, the restaurant was full of great-looking people obviously enjoying their meals. The reason why is apparent -- everything on the menu is thoughtfully and succulently prepared. At... More

First I'd like to say the staff was extremely warm and friendly. I ate at the bar but was very impressed with the bar tender's knowledge of the menu offerings. The mixed drinks seemed a bit limited with the majority centered around gin. As a vodka drinker, sometimes you want something other than a martini. The food was quite good... More
