  • "A nice, great place to start a conversation to restart a life or meet our best friends. The food invites to return and I definetly would. Clean and Well served. Interesting and wide wine list. "

  • "The lunch Prix Fixe is a great deal. The Alstice was absolutely amazing-well worth the upcharge. "
    Dined on 4/21/2014
  • "Friendly without fussy service in this celebration of seafood... notable: Fusilli and octopus and the snap peas and asparagus."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "The food was very good, the service was Excellent!! Great wine list, nice ambience, all in all an enjoyable meal. Like many high profile NYC restaurants, small portions and expensive, but it was the perfect place to entertain our client."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "Everything was so delicious and the service was impeccable. The oysters from Prince Edward island were the best. The STROZZAPRETI pasta was my favorite! A couple minor things - If you want a real espresso ask for a ristretto. The frozen apple "granita" layer on top of the pana cotta was too thick for me. "
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Incredible food, service and comfortable atmosphere. Marea puts Mario Batall'i's Del Posto to shame! Better food better atmoshpere at half the price."

  • "We went with the older couple who took time for everything, but the server was extremely patient with them and cordial. Wine list is very good, covers versatile price range and types. Wine list is good, covers versatile price and types. There are many service staff, and everyone works flawlessly and is all extremely knowledgeable with the menu. It was our anniversary dinner and they sent a comp appetizer. Dessert came with "Happy Anniversary" on the decoration - so nice to be acknowledged in settle but elegant way. They are famous for their seafood, but their steak was one of the best we have ever had (the entire table tasted and agreed.) We will definitely recommend this place, and will visit there again when we are in the city again. "

  • "I am from Vancouver where seafood restaurants are on every corner. This one would be middle of the pack. There was nothing special about the 8 dishes we had. Seems to be more of a happening scene than anything else."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Every single course was amazing. Staff was great. Value for money best I have been in NYC"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "We enjoyed a very nice dinner. Everything that we ordered came perfectly prepared. Our wait staff were very attentive and were able to accommodate my food sensitivities very well (gluten, dairy). The ambiance is very nice but the tables can be close together so I would not call it intimate. A great foodie place, especially if you are looking for fish."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We did the four courses for $99 and everything was delicious. Must have the fusilli with octopus and bone marrow! By far the best dish on the menu, and I don't even like octopus. Marea is a wonderful fine dining experience."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Exceptional food - service which is both deft and friendly - advice on wine which is approachable yet highly informed. Four courses delivered without flaw even when sitting down at 10.30pm. Don't miss the risotto with lobster, turbot & sea urchin - exceptional duck - simple but flawlessly executed sautéed dover sole - and treat yourself to Bomboloni - doughnuts, rosemary, chocolate sauce & spiced honey. No ordinary doughnuts!"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Our unfinished appetizer was taken away without asking while they brought the entree. It was close to closing time but several tables were still active. We felt rushed and found it a bit rude."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "My wife and I enjoyed an "after theater" dinner at Marea several nights ago. From the time we entered the door until we left, we were treated like royalty. The food was outstanding with special mention of the oysters which were some of the best I have ever had. The wine list is impressive with a heavy emphasis on Italian wines, but excellent options for other country's wines. Will readily go back next time I am in NY."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "Have eaten here before. Thought there was a decline in food prep. Ordered asparagus with crab to start. Three overcooked, pencil thin asparagus appeared--was this a tasting menu? And then branzino which was overcooked as well. My dining companion had an enormous salad and huge portion of risotto, unappealingly plated. Overpriced business lunch. Dining experience left me underwhelmed and disappointed."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "This was a fantastic restaurant. The service was great, and the food was delicious. They have a fixed priced dining menu, which most people seem to be doing and which gives you four courses. For your first time there it's probably the best way to experience what Marea has to offer. The seafood and pasta were excellent, and the desserts were phenomenal!"

  • "After seeing the matinee of a wonderful performance of Raisin in the Sun, we hurry uptown to what we thought would be equally as wonderful- dinner at Marea- a restaurant so highly ranked. What a disappointment- and an expensive one no less. From the supercilious staff members to the very boring, flavorless pasta and let us not forget the arugula salad that was literally a plate of arugula with two slices of onion in it and nothing out of the ordinary swordfish- we could hardly wait to leave. A message to the organization- hire more culinary people for your kitchen and less front of the house who consider themselves the dinner guests!!"

  • "We booked the Marea for a stop-over dinner on our way to the caribean. The atmosphere of the restaurant was nice, the staff friendly, the wine list extensive, the food was good and the prices were a bit high, but not overpriced. However, we expected by far more from a two Michelin star restaurant as the place is rather big and nothing was really spectacular. In summary no disappointment, but nothing to write home about ."

  • "A 60s clean cut feel and efficient staff. To die for Long Island ice tea! Signature grilled octopus dish good but not wow. Extremely fresh pasta!"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "I would say that I have had better individual dishes than I had at Marea, but overall from beginning to end, it was the best meal I've ever had by a long ways. The smoked pork jowl appetizer was great. The Orecchiette with shrimp and sepia ragu was packed with flavor without being heavy or overly filling, which can often happen with pasta dishes. The roast duck was perfectly cooked and was served with a ravioli that was so good I wish I could have had a whole order of them for my pasta course. The pana cotta and apple granita dessert wasn't the best of the bunch at my table on its own, but after the parade of rich, heavy flavored dishes, it was the perfect end. Light, refreshing, and not too sweet. It was a great end to an epic meal."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Very disappointed for a 2 stars michelin. Absolutely not at the level, and very far away, from a 2 * in Europe. In Europe, Marea would probably have 3 forks but no stars."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We've now eaten at 4 or 5 of the Michael White restaurants in the NY area and we've never been disappointed. The food is creative and so tasty. The menu contained signature homemade pastas and and some incredible meat and seafood dishes..all of which surpassed our high expectations."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "A must go restaurant in town Great food and service. Although it is not a cheap restaurant, the price was not bad for the food and service quality you are geting. The wine list is very big and full of renowned wines, but if you want to spend less then a USD 100.00 a bottle you will have a little trouble finding the right choise. I got the recomendation from a friend and checked it up at another website, and then decided to go. I only discoverd that this is a 2 star michelin restaurant when I was leaving the place."

  • "But, delicious! I had the Agnolotti with wild mushrooms and sweetbreads for lunch about ten days earlier. The pasta was freshly made and the mushrooms/sauce were delicate. (No sweetbreads). On sun., March 30th, I ordered the same dish for my entree. Bits of sweetbread were sited as well as bits of chopped mushrooms. The pasta had been made earlier as the edges were a bit stiff/tough. Rather disappointing. However, the stuffed calamari were freshly made and quite excellent! -[ the bread was first quality! ...I do appreciate good bread]"

  • "This was my second visit to Marea. I thought the food was very good (not outstanding) and the portions were too small. My lunch left me wanting more. While Marea is an excellent restaurant, I would choose Le Bernadin for a splurge for fish."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Superb late dinner after an evening at the Lincoln Center! Great seafood with a very sofisticated presentation. Very crowded and therefore rather loud and noisy. But still a wonderfull place maybe a little bit to "rizzy" and too "shiny"!"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "The food here is excellent but I wouldn't call it amazing. Also, very expensive with smaller portions. While the food didn't amaze me, I thought the staff was exceptional! We had our 3y/o along and the staff treated very well. Even when she was a little cranky. I was super impressed by all of the staff we interacted with."

  • "In my recent trip to NY, I dined at several Michelin starred restaurants such as Le Bernardin, Daniel, Eleven Madison Park, JungSik, Jean Georges, etc. At Marea, we had a 5 course lunch tasting menu and it was a disappointing experience. Compare to my experience at JungSik which also has 2 Michelin stars, Marea didn't quiet deliver my expectations. Food was okay to good, and service was lacking. Food runner was putting down plates as he was explaining the dishes and the service was just not what I would expect from two stars restaurant. For $80 5 course lunch tasting menu with medicore food and service, there are many better options."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "First time here. Excellent food & service. Without a doubt this is a top notch Italian in NYC. Expensive, but well worth it. With my wife, we had shrimp stuffed squid and smoked pork jowl to start with and had Crab & sea urchin pasta and braised octopus pasta for main. Excellent!!! Must Try."

  • "Unless you are a celebrity. We asked for a change of table and they moved us to another hidden corner. This was a reservation from weeks ago too. So that's just something they do. Everything else is so good that we keep going back and offended by this every time."

  • "A very noteworthy meal accompanied by excellent service and a nice atmosphere. All the courses were characterized adept and creative touches. The fusili was a particularly outstanding dish. There duck, which I had as the meat course, was very skillfully prepared, esthetically presented on the plate and tasted wonderful. Overall, an outstanding dining experience."

  • "Had the lunch. Great selections. Very well prepared dishes. Especially enjoyed the appetizer called Astice. The focaccia was excellent. The service was very helpful, friendly, and attentive. Desserts were excellent. All in all a very good experience."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "This restaurant is well located on Central Park South. The dining room tables are reasonably spaced given the dining room itself is not excessively large. For a 2 star Michelin restaurant more space between tables is required. The menu provided much to consider and all read well. The food itself was superbly presented, inventive and of the highest order. Service was efficient, courteous and very professional. The wine list was in keeping with a 2 star Michelin restaurant. All in all a very good restaurant offering good food and value at the top end of town."

  • "Not my first visit to this Gem! Service, Food and Atmosphere are second to non. No surprise it is one of Manhattan's top restaurants. I brought some newcomers not familiar with Crudo which made for an excellent experience. In this case unique as well. Your Maitre d', George is the absolute proffessional! As well the service staff and the bussers. They all were on the top of their game. The wine service was equally exceptional. This particular evening was more of a casual business outing for us, however, every time my wife and I visit NY, Marea is on the top our list."

  • "I took my husband for dinner for his birthday, and although the food was outstanding, the restaurant is beautiful, seating very comfortable, there were no warm Fuzzies from the moment we arrived to the hostess stand to sitting and waiting at the bar for attention from either of the 2 bartenders to the server. Marea is definitely stuffy and there is no warmth at all."
