Tremendous menu.
Loved “I can’t decide” options.

Bar/drink list non-existent.
Just because you can’t sit at a bar doesn’t mean people don’t want good beer/cocktail options.

Even though I had a reservation (for 2), we were seated at a table for 6. Not the intimate setting I envisioned for a romantic night out with the wife.

Will go back for the food and cross my fingers they figure out the rest before then.

Waited a little for our table but that’s because of Covid restrictions, which is fine, food was absolutely delicious service was solid and the owners were grateful that we were there. Will be back and with larger groups!

Always a great experience at Marsillio’s. Not just the meal but the full experience. Christian was outstanding. He provided recommendations on cocktails, apps and entrees which we took him up on each. He was spot on. Every course was outstanding and it was so nice to enjoy fine dining as we’re used to despite the pandemic. Marsillio’s hit a home run with outdoor dining but this as our first indoor experience with them was superb.

Due to Covid-19, we haven't been dining out too much and were thrilled to come back to a favorite restaurant. I had the salmon on a bed of sautéed spinach that was to die for and am having the leftovers for dinner tonight. After watching the news today, it looks like dining in New Jersey is going to take another hit but we hope to come back soon. Thanks for the great service and a wonderful meal.

From our first interaction with the hostess to the end of our meal, we felt welcomed here. All the waitstaff was very attentive and even the owner came over to our table to make sure we were happy. The food was delicious-I loved the calamari and the crab cakes. They even have outdoor seating with heaters. Highly recommended.

As usual, always a good meal. Was happy to see outside dining continuing. Heaters were on and we were comfortably warm. They were a bit disorganized seating us (3 people asked us if we were helped, couldn’t tell who was in charge) but that was forgivable. So happy they are hanging in during this tough time. Highly recommend their take out menu also!

another incredible experience! It just keeps getting better and better! We absolutely love it here. Service is always great, food is even better. Marsilios consistently outdoes themselves. Even with COVID, they are going above and beyond expectations, the staff is always friendly too. I can only imagine how difficult this experience has been for small restaurants and hope they can continue to keep up the great work! Bravo!

Had amazing meal for my husbands birthday. Food and drinks were delicious. All CDC guidelines in place! We started with giant meatball that was to die for (I pretended there wasn’t veal in it). My husband’s entrée was pan seared veal chop topped with Gorgonzola on a bed of broccoli rabe and roasted potato wedges. He raved over it. Unfortunately, I do not eat veal so did not want to try. I had the filet and it was cooked to perfection. It came with roasted potato wedges and side of pasta (which I took home). And because it was a special occasion, we had to have dessert and chose the pumpkin cheesecake - melted in your mouth. Thank you Alan and staff for awesome dining experience. Almost forgot - Joe our server was on top of everything, even singing Happy Birthday - great service

They are to a phrase...getting it right! If you a worried about eating indoors (as we are), with a nearly freezing temperature, the warmth provided by outdoor heaters, tent and siding was more than accommodating and did not interfere with our meal in the least. Never chilled, and ironically, it makes for a very "cool" experience. The meal, service, and hospitality are always first-rate, so go-ahead enjoy a nice evening "out."

The big four: Food, Ambience, Service and SAFETY! Dined with our daughter and 5 year old grandson. (Their first dining out experience since February.). He loved the “outdoor” experience and the decor. Our daughter was very pleased with how safe everything was.

Even in these challenging circumstances Marsilio’s does everything right! Please continue to support them so we all can continue to enjoy a wonderful dining experience for years to come.
We sat outside in a very welcoming environment. Plenty of heaters to make you comfortable. I love the Can’t Decide Francaise. Will literally travel 100 miles for it!
