We went with a rather large party with a reservation. I knew we were in trouble when we realized they had assigned one server to a party of 16. I was correct. Pretty much nothing went right. My food was delivered without silverware which I...politely asked for. By the time it came the food was ice cold.she offered to go and “heat it up” which I declined as it was Salmon that had already been over cooked. It was also a birthday. We had delivered a cake earlier. It was brought out in the container it was purchased in and left on a side table with some plates. We had to cut and serve it ourselves. We were charged a delivery fee😂 anyway! The Paella tasted like Rice-A-Roni only not as good. No manager ever came to check on us either. I was charged $28.00 for the Salmon I did not eat. I may give it one more try but not anytime soon.More

We waited 20 minutes for our server to come get our drink order. The wine was fine and so was the salad. The mussels were ice cold and the egglplant parm was average. If I had to go again I would get a pizza, as...they did look good.More

My wife and I are visiting Brevard for the first time, arriving on Sunday. Not many restaurants open Sunday night, so we made last minute reservations at Marco’s based on positive reviews. We had a great dining experience! The decor and ambiance are casual and...comfortable. Casey provided excellent service, even bringing us a free bread basket when he ended up with two baskets for another table. The Greek salad was fresh, delicious, and big enough that the two of us split in comfortably. The house white wine was very good and the house red was acceptable (especially at $11/carafe). Our entrees were puttanesca pasta, with shrimp and sausage, and cheese ravioli with ratatouille and Gorgonzola cream sauce. Both were excellent. The ravioli sauce was rich, and the pasta marinara was quite spicy. We then spilt a homemade chocolate mousse that was outstanding. We also noted that the wine list is quite extensive. We’ll be back and try the wine list out next time!More

We choose to be gluten free and this can be difficult in restaurants. But here, we feasted on delicious appetizers, main courses and even two desserts. We were absolutely amazed with the food coming out of that kitchen! The waitress was very attentive and helped...us make our food choices. If we didn't live three hours away we would visit there quite often. Reservations are highly recommended.More

We were near Brevard for a mountain biking trip and were recommended Marco's by a local. We're fans of local and loved that it was a house converted into a restaurant--lots of character. We made a reservation (same day) and when we arrived, our table...was waiting with water and menus. I started w/the warm goat cheese salad--goat cheese medallion was crisp on the outside and lovely and creamy inside--and my fiancé had the garlic fries w/smoked mayo. Both dishes were delicious. He had the eggplant parm for an entrée and I had the seafood pasta (shrimp, scallops, in a pesto goat cheese sauce with sundried tomatoes over oriechette pasta). Saw another review that said it was just "ok." Not sure what he/she was eating, but mine was fantastic--one of the bet pasta dishes I've ever had. And very generous portions--we both took half our dinners home. Server was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable. Reasonably priced for drinks, apps and dinner for the quality of the food. If we lived in the area, we'd be bac frequently.More

......Delicious food and very friendly service. This place is gem! Excellent choice of toppings for the pizzas and very tasty pasta. The marinara sauce used at Marco is really good. A decent wine and beer list that has something for all tastes. I will return...when in Brevard for sure...More

Booked our 5:30pm reservation 2 weeks in advance. When we showed up on the day of we were told since we didn’t explicitly request inside, they can only put us outside (mind you it rained 20 mins prior). Ok, how about a covered porch? The...host proceeds to tell us you can’t request a table but all tables have already been assigned. And we can only have an outside table (not the porch). I question this explanation... if you can’t request a table why can’t we be seated under a covered porch? At this point his attitude escalates. He proceeds to tell us that he won’t argue with us and he can only tell us what the restaurant policy is. When kids food arrived, my child mentioned that carrots don’t taste right. They were spoiled!!! Our waitress never introduced herself and wasn’t very engaged. She was just ok. Carrots were of corse replaced. Pizza, mussels appetizer, and Eggplant lasagna were pretty good. Seafood pasta was just ok. Chocolate mouse was one of the worst we’ve ever had. Espresso was watered down. Thank goodness for the delicious wine! Overall a very “meh” experience. Definitely left a damper on our one night vacation in Brevard.More

Excellent authentic Italian food. It was a super busy evening and even with reservations it took awhile to be seated. Once seated our waitress was great. She made great recommendations and we were all pleased with our salads and entrees.

Very nice Restaurant with inside and outside sitting, and they take reservations. Wonderful!!!! The Seafood pasta I had was the best pasta in a Restaurant, my wife had the chicken parm which was also great and I am a trained chef. For the appetizer we...did order fried Calamari, this was the only disappointment because they did serve us Chicken tenders and we know the difference. We did complain, but got told that it was Calamari, I did not want to get in an argument, but this is not right. Otherwise we enjoyed our eveningMore
