When we dine at Da Marco it reminds of dining in an classic traditional restaurant from the decor to the wine list to the menu. The food is excellent and the service outstanding. I think this is probably one of the best restaurants in the area. I have eaten the grilled polenta with a mushroom sauce, grilled seafoods and we... More

This restaurant is among my top three favorite in the country. The service is friendly and professional. The food is delicious and their wine selection is fantastic. A must visit for anyone staying in the Escazu/Santa Ana area.

This is the worst restaurant this reviewer has ever been! The food, although pretentious was diner food at the best. I ordered a NY steak medium cooked that the restaurant argued was imported Angus Beef. The waiter brought a grey colored steak, dry and tasteless, that was simply inedible. When I explained the situation to the waiter, Da Marco the... More
