    Share only with the restaurant We came to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We had made the reservation and although the food was very good the end of the dinner was embarrassing. I had initially told the server that we were celebrating the friend’s birthday and that we were to get the bill. I had also given the server my credit card. Unbeknownst to me, the other guy also gave the server a credit card and although the server was told a number of times that I would be paying the bill she did not honor that. It was very embarrassing for me. We had made the reservation and invited these friends to celebrate a birthday. I doubt I will ever return to this restaurant.

    My husband and I enjoyed dinner at Marco's Kitchen. The food was delicious!!! It was served piping hot. Drinks were not watered down, atmosphere was intimate. The place is small so it's best to make a reservation. Great place for a celebration or special occasion.

    We loved the ambiance of Marco’s Kitchen. The drinks we tried were excellent. The appetizers were delicious but the octopus portion was so tiny for the price. We were both disappointed with our entrees. The duck breast was fine but the accompanying parpadelle was undercooked. The trout was a bit overbrowned and slightly fishy tasting. We expected better. We did express our concerns to the waiter and he said he would tell Marco. Waiter did bring a chocolate sacher as an apology.

    We really liked the food at Marco's. Waiter was really bad. Would love to give 5 stars because of the food. The food tasted great and loved the different and great options. But would not come back if we would have the same server. Our server was pretty underwhelming and did not engage at all with us. It was my wife's birthday, too, so that made it even more disappointing. He didn't arrive for quite a while to take our drink orders and took a while to take our food orders. And would leave as soon as he possibly could whenever he did come to the table. There was only one waiter for the 9 tables in the restaurant. Was cozy and nice ambience.

    Marco's Kitchen always has provided fine dining, even during the pandemic lockdown. The menu is full of fascinating choices and we enjoyed everything we ordered. Their cocktails are very good and the appetizers and soups were unusually creative. The entrees were very enjoyable. The service was friendly, if a bit slow, and the room can get a bit noisy for a fine dining establishment, but we think this is the best restaurant in La Grange and one of the best fine dining places in the western suburbs.

    I loved my dining experience. We booked seating at the bar and had a great view of all the wonderful treats coming out of the kitchen. Marco, the owner, is a delight and clearly enjoys chatting with his customers. The bruschetta, crab cakes, lamb and mahi-mahi were superb. The bartender took extra time to assist with the wine pairing. Over all I give Marco’s a big thumbs up!

    The food at Marco's Kitchen was outstanding. The romaine salad was delicious. Crisp, tasty and refreshing. The pork with its elegant sauce was superb as was the fish. Service was attentive. Only one suggestion. The slice of carrot cake dessert needs to be a little larger.
