Grand Rapids Casual Fine Dining- About Marco Bistro

Local Flavor. French Flair.
Since 2002, award-winning Marco Bistro has been the neighborhood bistro in Grand Rapids. Chef Mark McNamara and his staff prepare a seasonal menu featuring regional American and European cuisine, all hand made, using the finest ingredients, sourced locally when available. Complemented by gracious service, a full bar, engaging wine list and a quaint, comfortable atmosphere, there is nothing else quite like it in Grand Rapids.
Marco Bistro is a hidden gem in Grand fills a much-needed void: food done very well. Chef Mark McNamara can cook, and he could be the most underrated chef in Grand Rapids.
One thing I have learned from all my travels is to listen to what the locals have to say — whether it is in Bangkok, Mumbai, San Francisco or Cascade. My nearby friends are 100 percent correct that they have a gem in Marco New American Bistro. Count me in as a new fan."
-George Aquino, Grand Rapids Press, September 2011
"Marco excels in everything fine dining is about: attentive service, an exceptional and singular menu, a solid selection of wines and beers and a relaxed-but-not-noisy atmosphere that caters as much to diners inclined to dress up as well as those in the mood to wear jeans."
