“Elegant but noisy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Food was excellent, except for the Ceasar Salad, which was somewhat ordinary. However, it was made tableside by a young lady in training and she needed a little more work on the salad. Overall, the service was great. The setting is very nice. Food is a bit pricey but worth it. We'll try it again on our next visit to Marco.

“High Standards, Friendly Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

On a return visit to Marco Island with several friends, we made a point to go back to the Marco Polo. We found it to be extremely friendly with soft, elegant decor. When you are looking for an upscale meal, or to celebrate any special occasion in your life, this would be high on my list! Visit with Tom and Karen Naifeh who run the Marco Polo. SUPER friendly!!!

“Best Kept Secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

My husband spend three winter months in Marco and have thoroughly enjoyed our numerous dining experiences at Marco Polo. The owners, Karen and Tom, are there every night to welcome their diners and make every effort to ensure that all their dining requirements are met. The food is expertly prepared and cooked to perfection and the service staff is top notch. Entertainment is provided on particular nights and expertly performed by the multi-talented Dan Vass. Complimentary limo service is also available. This restaurant is definitely worth a try.

“Solid Choice for Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

Dined at this restaurant on our first night on Marco Island. Restaurant offers dining with a touch of class in terms of menu and atmosphere. Excellent piano player in the bar area can be heard in most areas of the restaurant.

Everyone in our group had one of the varied fish selections on the menu and nightly specials. Everyone was pleased with their entree. Cherries Jubilee for desert is served table side and attracts the attention of all restaurant patrons.

“good food, worst service ever!!!!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

While the food was actually quite good, the service was horrible. The cocktail waitress was beyond nasty and should consider a job that doesn't involve working with people as she totally lacks people skills. As for the waitress..........she was difficult to locate, she forgot to submit our appetizer order and she was rude. I actually feel bad for the chef as he is talented but due to such poor service I fear that he may be out of a job one day soon!!!!
