We were heading to NYC and decided to get food in Jersey City. What a pleasant surprise for this off the beaten path location!! The best Cuban sandwich ever which I ordered with a side of sweet potato fries - healthy portions and very delicious! We both ordered the butternut squash soup which was very tasty. My guest had the... More

We've been coming here for almost a year. Good brunch menu, not overly priced. Gets crowded on the weekends, but where doesn't it in Jersey City when the food is good and the service to match. Staff very friendly and helpful. Had the flank steak and sliders often. Also, weekend Bloody Mary's are spot on as well their bloody Maria's.... More

You probably know by now that the spouse and I don't get out much. One of our sons told us about Marco & Pepe so last Friday evening, off we went to Jersey City. It was a pretty night and we located the restaurant and found a parking space on the street nearby. The décor might appeal to some, but... More

I've been to Marco & Pepe twice. Once with my mom and another with a girlfriend. Both times I've gotten the half portion, which has been the perfect amount of food. The food is overpriced so the half portion helps to make it more reasonable! The chairs and tables outside are adorable, but holy crap are they uncomfortable. I was... More

Passing through Jersey City, my Sis said we have to stop and get the French toast made from croissants. Nice, busy corner spot across from City Hall. Friendly service, and it was very good

Have eaten here a number of times and always leave happy. Good food and good service always. They make you feel like family.

We had nice brunch with family and friends here on a Sunday in early August. The food is good and the ambience is nice. Service is a bit slow, but it is a small operation and everything was clearly freshly made. Not a bad spot for a quick bite in JC

My wife and I, having had good food here quite a few times, came by for an early dinner -- only one other table was occupied. Historically, what happens at most casual restaurants in such a situation? The servers are huddled together, talking amongst themselves, and service to the few diners is sloppy. Blame management, and blame very nice and... More

What a fun and eclectic brunch menu, served Tuesday through Sunday starting at 11am. There was a bit of a wait in this small-ish Jersey City cafe which was noisy but not too loud to enjoy a good conversation. They have another dining room upstairs, but we opted to eat downstairs where the vibe was. Interestingly decorated with a very... More

I have been visiting Marco & Pepe for roughly 8 years now. The food has always been top notch but the service has always been absolute garbage. I'm actually sitting here now and have been waiting for our drinks for roughly 30 minutes. The kicker is there is roughly 8 servers to maybe 30 patrons? I also love that the... More
