Diner Reviews
  • "Went on a Sunday evening. Had the tasting menu with wine pairing and started with an order of the Galilee Caviar. The caviar and associated fixings were fantastic. The tasting menu was great, but not exceptional - nothing was bad, but some things were, perhaps, less than perfect (pasta slightly too al-dente - better than overcooked though, escobar slightly overcooked, nothing produced a "wow" factor) - As a bit of a "foodie" I am applying very high standards to otherwise good food because of the very high pedigree of this place, and I suspect that casual diners will find nothing but delight. Good presentation. Service was friendly and professional. The basil-lemon sorbetto that came with dessert was new to me and awesome."

  • "The highlight of our trip to New York was dining at Marea's. In a sea, no pun intended, of restaurants, this is the winner. Everything met our expectations : professional staff, elegant ambiance and exquisitely prepared food. The portions are not huge so you must order an appetizer. The desserts were also delicious and the complementary tray of miniature handmade chocolates and marshmallows were a very nice touch. This is our second visit to New York in three years and we were happy to find out that Marea was one of the things that had not changed in the city."

  • "My daughter and I went to NYC for a weekend getaway from Toronto. Our city has a lot of excellent restaurants which we frequent regularly. We found Marea to be if not the number 1 one of the top 5 best restaurants we have ever eaten at in the world. The food was incredible, the staff were so knowledgeable and friendly and the embience was what a top restaurant should be. We would recommend Marea to everyone I know. If you live in NYC please try this place, you wont be disappointed. I guarantee it."

  • "This ain't a cheap night out. The prix fixe 4 course dinner menu is a tad under $100. But you don't go to this place expecting it to be cheap. Its location and credentials militate against such folly. Settle in for the night and enjoy a sumptuous meal."

  • "Excellent table position,great lighting,low noise, elegant ambiance. The wait staff was at the highest level of attentiveness. After being admonished that we were late (15 min) even though I had called ahead we were advised the table was reserved two hours hence. We quickly ordered and then were informed the main course we selected to share - large fish priced for two - would take 45 minutes to prepare. Okay, should not be a problem. Ample pasta courses were the best part of the meal. The main course came out 50 minutes after ordering and was frankly barely warm. Side dishes were excellent. Excellent wine by the glass but at $24/per for a 5oz pour seemed a bit steep. Will plan to return, better prepared for what to expect and enjoy."

  • "Terrific location by Columbus Circle - Central Park South. Had the 5 course tasting and it was excellent but not outstanding. Pasta dish with cuttle fish was superb along with the stuffed cuttlefish appetizer. The swordfish was a bit over done and just ok. Fresh made donuts with white chocolate dipping sauce was devine. Wine list was diverse and well rounded but not overwhelming (knowledgeable sommelier)."

  • "From one GM in the business to a restaurant consistently bringing their A game I am always impressed. Service is outstanding and the only thing eclipsing the service is the food. Ryan, the bartender caters to every guest and knows everyone by name as he serves the Chef's creative and fulfilling creations. My top 5 choice in the city always. Thank you."

  • "Me and my wife went to Marea for a diner! the food was good (not extra ordinary but good). but the service was terrible. everyone were so unfriendly and unhelpful. We had a reservation and when we got there we were told to stay by the bar, and the bar tender just through the menu un front of us and dudn't even take our drink order. this was also the same with our waiter who were terrible and again just just put the menu in front of us with nothing more than "do you want a desert???????" I expected much better service when spending 170$ for dunner for 2. Thats why I only give them 2 stars."

  • "The service is a little slower than I was expecting to get in a restaurant like that; although once the waiter got in the table, it was really helpful and kind. I was there in the lunch time of a Sunday, so that's probably why it was not this fast. The food, on the other hand, came really fast."

  • "We have never been disappointed at Marea, and this time was no exception. The menu is so inventive and every dish is a flavor explosion. The service is excellent. The architectural details and all the visual elements are perfectly coordinated. Truly a feast for all the senses. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates excellent Italian cuisine."

  • "We were first seated on a table in a corner near the window, but the air conditioning was freezing, so we asked if they could turn it lower. It didn't really help, so eventually, we changed tables. It got a bit better, although it was pretty cold anyways. The food was definitely something to talk about; We had some sashimi's and a salad as starters and the fish and seafood were incredibly fresh, every bite was delicious! As main dishes, my husband had an octopus and bone marrow risotto who always thinks is fantastic and I had a vegetarian platter which was also outstanding! The people were very nice. The prices are veryhigh, but if you know where you are going and you appreciate nice food, quality and service, definitely worth every cent!"

  • "Fantastic date place but we took a family of five though the kids were teens. The flavors were too complex and there were no simple dishes. Except for the pasta primavera everything was top notch and it was the worst I have ever tasted and wife agreed. Server forgot our drink orders for the kids and then forgot our post dinner coffee and read we had ordered. So , very good but has some minor issues. Food great !!!"

  • "I was excited to dine here based on the menu but a little put off by prior reviews of snobby service. I did not have that experience at all. My waiter, Mark, was pleasant, friendly, informed and down to Earth while still being respectful. The bussers were also pleasant and appropriately personable. I didn't feel judged or like I was a bother at all. Everyone was helpful regarding seating, ordering, clearing, etc. As to the food, it was excellent. Pricey for sure, but worth it. Nothing worse than spending money on something I don't thoroughly enjoy. I would eat here again and again if it was financially possible. Our waiter made good suggestions as to amount of food and what to try. Loved the entire experience."

  • "I never really understood how someone could cry in response to good food. I was aware that people said this on Food Network shows and the like, but after eating dinner at Marea, I understand how that's possible. Beyond the food, the service was extraordinarily attentive and kind. I've never had a better dining restaurant - in fact, I thought this level really only existed in movies - and I may be ruined for all other restuarants - at least those that don't have the 2 Michelin stars..."

  • "I chose this restaurant for having a menu that included vegetarian options and fresh sea food. The waiter happily provided vegetarian alternatives in addition to the ones listed in the menu. The person who enjoys raw sea food enjoyed her selections, raving about one of the 6 oysters that were an assortment sourced from different states. Can't remember which state produced that fantastic oyster, but it triggered some excited comments from her. Also chose the restaurant for the space between tables. I've eaten at NYC restaurants, jammed in with the other sardines. I was very comfortable and could easily hear the others at the table. Too often, the noise level destroys the joy of dining out, but not so for us that evening."
