“marek's disappointing”
Reviewed March 19, 2008

Did not reach expectation. Was recommended, and looked inviting from other reviews, but food was average at best considering price. Duck entree was less than adequate. pork entree was average. Very overpriced. No extra such as a salad with the dinner. The bread was of poor quality. Wine was ok with cost slightly higher tha expected. Total cost of $100.00 including tip for entrees and 3 glasses of wine is extravagant for the total presentation.

“Our Favorite Restaurant on Marco Island”
Reviewed March 8, 2008

Just returned home from our annual vacation to Marco Island. As usual, we dined at Marek's our first and last night. Marek's has been our favorite restaurant on Marco Island for years and continues to serve the best food on the island. We also dined at Tara's, Arturo's and Sale e Pepe, which are also very good, but Marek's is without equal, particularly the wonderful selection of nightly chef's specials.

“Consistently Superior”
Reviewed March 7, 2008

We have been coming to Marco Island for over 10 years and always make it a point to have dinner at our favorite place, Marek's. This year we are now spending the whole winter and so have many more opportunities to dine at Marek's. The menu is diverse including seafood, lamb, veal, and beef with many specials every night. We especially enjoy the grouper and Maine lobster entries. The delightful presentations complement the delicious taste. Also we have always had superior service with Penny (co owner with her husband the chef) checking and paying attention to every detail. She welcomes feedback and is always there to make sure your experience is superior.

“Terrible Service”
Reviewed February 19, 2008

My wife and I just returned from our annaul trip to Marco. I had made reservations a couple weeks ahead for Valentine's Day dinner. I had read many reviews of this highly rated island restaurant and in all our trips we had never had the opportunity to dine at Marek's. This was a special night so we planned to celebrate at this special place. The food was good but the service we recieved was the worst I have ever experienced. For a top rated restaurant I was astonished at such poor service. When
I expressed my concern to waiter and hostess/manager there wasn't as much as an apology. We were totally ignored. This sure spoiled our special night. Thank goodness there are plenty of other fine eating establishments on Marco Island.

“Best dining experience in Marco”
Reviewed February 5, 2008

We visit Marco Island every year and the highlight of our visit is dining in Marek's Collier House Restaurant and again this year it was of a consistently high standard.

We particularly like trying the specials which are so eloquently explained by the knowledgable friendly waiters. The desserts are irresistible.

So we would recommend anyone who visits Marco Island to try Chef Marek's superb cuisine.
