Food quite uneven for the price. Service was good but the food was very average. As mentioned in other reviews decor is vintage but not in a bad way.

Every trip that we make to Marco Island we eat dinner at Marco Polo. Never a bad experience. The food is delicious and the owners are always more than happy to stop by and see how you are doing. Wonderful place with great food. Would definitely recommend.

In spite of vacationing on Marco Island the last 20+ years, this was our first time dining at Marco Polo and it was definitely worthwhile! They accommodated a fairly large group (9) with little to no notice. Service was attentive and the dishes were fantastic. Tableside preparations of ceasar salad, lobster bisque, and dover sole were excellent. The owners checked in and thanked us for coming after our meal and were very personable. All in all not a single complaint from anyone with their dish.

We visited Marco Polo 4 years ago, twice actually during our stay, and loved it. Its old world atmosphere, old style dining with tableside preps of dishes like Caesar Salad and Cherries Jubilee, and live background music made this place a treat. They also offered free limo service from the hotel, which was great in that this place is off the beaten track a bit, and allowed us to truly enjoy our drinks. I was a bitt worried to see some fairly negative reviews recently on this site, so made the reservation with a bit of reservation .... Fortunately this was just as wonderful the second time around. The limo came to pick us up promptly - we were meeting enthusiastically by the owner, Tom - and we had wonderful attention from our waiter, Yvan, who was a bit quirky but who knew the menu and specials inside and out and who steered us to some wonderful choices. The beer carpaccio appetizer was garnished with crispy capers (how did they do that?!) and a wonderfully dressed arugula salad topped by a cheese crostini. The Florida lobster entrée was perfectly prepared. The evening special of both veal and chicken francaise was outstanding with perfect breading and tasty lemon wine sauce. To end the meal the panna cotta special was absolutely yummy. It's a bit dark, and no view of the water and a sunset, but come for the service and the food. We'll return again soon!

The decor is 1960's - dark walls, low lighting, a singer at the corner of the bar and wait staff in black and white outfits. The manager/owner Tom comes by and asks how you are. The food was good - 1960's again: Grouper stuffed with crab, grouper francais (with a cream sauce), bananas Foster (flambé over ice cream), a really creamy creme brûlée, etc. Main seafood dishes came with a creamy risotto. A green salad comes with every meal. The bread buns were warm. The servers were attentive. The mens bathroom could use a makeover. Generally, a pleasant experience.
