This restauant has been around for a long time and each time I go, I have ALWAYS come away satisfied. So since it has been so long, since I have gone here, I didn't know about the long wait, lucky for me my girlfriend and I went back to the car to visit while our husbands held our post, BUT... More

We came with another couple for a light dinner, and both my wife and myself had issues with our entrees, While her chicken Caesar salad was delicious and composed of good fresh ingredients, it was so over dressed that it was unacceptably soggy! The highly regarded onion rings that accompanied my OK burger were greasy and heavy. These issues could... More

I have been to Marco's for breakfast, and lunch (and dinner once). Each time was an enjoyable dining experience. The staff is very friendly and the food is excellent. My favorite is to try their new specials. Depending upon what is fresh that day is the special that is served. My "go to" for breakfast is the eggs Benedict. Yum!... More

The cafe is in a great location with parking in the back. Warm friendly atmosphere, casual and fun. Nice bar with great local beers. Breakfasts are outstanding, as well as lunches. the Specials were quite good and highly recommended by other parties in my group. Very friendly and attentive service! Appears to have a great dinner menu, but only available... More

I've been here twice this summer, for lunch and dinner. I had breakfast both times and it was awesome both times. The wait was less than 5 minutes each time (on weekends) and the service was great. The atmosphere is fun and cozy without feeling squished. The servers were great about communicating what the specials were and what was sold... More

I have enjoyed eating breakfast at Marco's for at least twenty years. The food has been interesting, varied, and almost always excellent. Lunch are also pretty good, but my favorites have been the desserts. Well worth search for Marco's and then searching for a parking place so that you can eat there when you are in Portland.

We like coming to Marcos. There is a varied menu with daily specials and I've never had a bad meal here. The prices are affordable and the food is good.

This is the second time I have been to Marco's. I am from out-of-state but visit Oregon with some regularity. I like the atmosphere at Marco's - it's a bustling place and the umbrellas hanging from the ceiling are fun. I like the eclectic menu. But I find that the food doesn't always live up to the ambitious menu. This... More

The menu items have good variety and the dishes we had were well prepared and fresh tasting. I had the sirloin steak salad which was generous and tasty. My wife had the Shepherd's Pie which she felt was a little on the bland taste and could have used some more spice. Service was friendly and efficient.
