    We really enjoyed our dinner at The Marrow. I particularly enjoyed the bucatini with cauliflower & pine nuts and my fiance really liked the cavatelli. We both enjoyed the side of kale.....delish. The duck schnitzel was good, but nothing special.....I didn't particularly care for the cold veg/potato...just bland. The meatballs we tasty and spiced nicely. The ambiance was nice....modern and low-lit but not dark. Service was good, attentive but not intrusive....she could've been a touch more friendly--she came to take our order and neglected to tell us the specials....I had to ask her about them (I only knew to ask because I heard her telling another table about them minutes earlier but couldn't hear the details). All in all, great meal.

    Food was ok this time. Usually it is outstanding. Have been there about 6 times. Duck Schnitzel was very dry. AND ... The Marrow had no Marrow! Very disappointing and wait staff was " whatever". Always has a nice buzz and bar tender knows how to make a drink. Nice place, just not as good as usual.

    I'm not sure how to rate The Marrow. The space is inviting, diners are not squeezed in. the waitress seemed pleasant and accomodating, and the first course was to die for. the problem came with the entree, at least mine. I ordered their "signature" dish, duck snitzel, a huge mistake. nice prep, but not a signature by any means. my wife had the bronzino, which was excellent. our friendly waitress, we discovered was pushing certain dishes that night, the duck and the rice ball. When we asked about specials, she said there were none. Not true; other diners around us were offered a prix fix menu. Not an oversight, since we asked. Other dishes on this German-Italian menu looked more inviting. we will give it another try.

    We had a great night out at The Marrow, despite being a bit underwhelmed by the food. The service was good, if a bit rushed, and staff all very pleasant. The turducken bolognese macaroni was an excellent way to start, though the beans in the calamari fra diavolo weren't done, and quite tough. Overall the dish was under-seasoned. The lamb meatballs and the burger were both very good, though the fries served with the burger were downright boring. We skipped dessert as the list was a bit uninspired, and opted to just finish our wine instead.

    My fourth time dining there. They changed the menu (no longer playing up as much their Italian vs. Austrain dishes). They eliminated their pretzel bread -- which was kind of a bummer to be honest. The Service was outstanding and they honored with complete ease my 30% discount code. The Bucatini appetizer was unique and flavorful. The macaroni one was not. The TM burger was out of this world. The duck schnitzel is worth its $30 price tag. Keep the great service; bring back the pretzel bread; and lower your prices by 15% and you'll have 5 stars in my book!

    Four of us had a wonderful meal at this inviting restaurant. Two ordered from the Restaurant Week menu and the other two, a la carte. Every dish we had was delicious and creative starting with corn soup and a gem lettuce salad and finishing with olive oil lemon cake. I look forward to future meals at this delightful restaurant. And as a warning...the meatball is indeed a spicey one.

    I was very disappointed by the food. The Butter Lettuce Salad tasted like vinegar, I couldn't even finish it. The Chicken Milanese was essentially fried chicken with a little salad on the side. The desert was ok. Overall it seemed like a cheap menu definitely not worth the $38 we spent.

    Always like to try new places during restaurant week. This cute little place was one I always passed , so I thought I would try it with my honey. Nice wine list and ambience"excellent" wait staff. But. My chicken milanese seemed flash fried like a kids chicken finger meal with salad on top, salad was yummy,chicken left an after taste reminiscent of fast food My honeys fish dish was nicely done and tasty.A lovely girl in the front of house noticed I didnt care for my chicken asked me why. Dessert time just when i was ready to write this place off it happened I fell in love with their desserts Gingerbread cake with delish ice cream,yogurt Panna cotta and brown sugar olive oil cake Heaven worth coming for dessert,hats off to the pastry chef

    I've wanted to go to The Marrow since reading about all of the fantastic reviews when it opened. Unfortunately, it was a bit out of my price range. When I heard that it was apart of Restaurant Week this year, I called my friends and made a reservation. It was well worth the wait! The food from start to finish was delicious and the staff was very friendly and quick. I would definitely go back and give my recommendation to my friends.

    My friend and I really enjoyed this restaurant. The room is lovely with views of tree-lined Village streets. The food tastes far better than its rather plain descriptions - everything is fresh and very tasty and imaginatively prepared. I am a fan of Harold Dieterle and we appreciated his German-Italian menu. Great wines by the glass, but I will say that the pour is a little small. When I mentioned this, the waitress said that it was a large glass with a standard 6 oz. pour. Did not seem like it - when you are paying $15 for a glass of wine, they could be a little freer with the pour. But all in all, a lovely evening with great food.

    Lovely setting, bright and airy, green and leafy view onto a quiet Village street. Tables not jammed together inside -- a rarity in New York. Went there for Restaurant Week; regular menu has a lot more choices. Appetizer (corn soup with shrimps) and dessert (olive oil lemon cake) were first rate. Entree (fish with a squid-ink sauce) could have been more flavorful, but was moist and satisfying. Portions are generous. Excellent service. Somewhat noisy but only because a family at a nearby table (6 adults and 1 baby) were really enjoying themselves talking and laughing. The music level is subdued and doesn't interfere with conversation.

    We were a party of 4, and all enjoyed our dining experience. We especially liked the cold corn soup, the bone marrow & roe, and the porgy. Thought the milanese chicken dry and ordinary, and the mussels portion definitely too small; but the pretzel rolls were delicious and warm. Waiter was helpful and pleasant, atmosphere had energy but not too loud to talk or hear, ambience was lovely and decor delightful. Definitely recommend The Marrow as a fine dining experience.

    This was my second time eating here, and I must say that it was a disappointment. I want to specify that the wait staff was stellar the entire evening. They did everything right, even when confronted with the mistakes coming out of the kitchen. Whoever was working in the back, though, leaves much to be desired. First of all, the bone marrow that they served us came out cold, and uncooked. then the duck was overcooked, and we had to send it back. One of the sides was so drenched in dressing, that it was unedible. Now, I have had all of these dishes before, so I knew what the end result should have been. it was not what we got. Don't think i'll be heading back there any time soon.

    Ok, so I went a little crazy with the 5 stars, but I have to say you can feel love and care exuding from this place, from the staff to the fresh pecan-cinnamon rolls they serve at brunch and baked in-house. This is one of my favorite West Village spots now. If I ever decide to date again, I'll be sure to take him there.

    Not my favorite place. I won't be back. I was expecting a list of different marrow dishes but there was only one with the burger. There was nothing appetizing to anyone at our table when we looked at the menu. Other people came in and walked back out. The drinks were good, however you can get a nice drink anywhere.

    From the minute we entered this restaurant, we were made to feel comfortable and welcomed. They have wine for $5 a glass during happy hour and the German white was delicious. We started with the bone marrow and calamari. The bone marrow was flawless though the beans with the calamari were undercooked. The duck schnitzel was huge and had interesting sides. The porgy was beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. Overall, this is definitely a place to recommend and revisit.

    The food at the Marrow was okay, not great: the marrow appetizer was over-garnished with all sorts of stuff, including salmon roe; it killed the dish. The daily special pasta was just plain tough, not al dente. The table service and bar service were very nice. The noise was deafening. But the hostess, whose "welcome" was appalling, ruined the entire experience. I arrived at 7:42 for a 7:45 reservation for two. She noted that I was “early,” and since my “party” of one other person wasn’t there, I would need to wait at the bar. I pointed out the literal swath of empty tables for two. She countered that all of those tables were “confirmed.” What could be more of a confirmation than my presence? But I will not be back.

    We loved Kin Shop & Perilla so when our family of four planned a return trip to NYC we decided to try The Marrow. What a disappointment. The appetizers were fine, nothing stellar. The main courses were truly dull and uninspired. Ice cream and sorbet selections for dessert were just okay. Not sure what went wrong with this meal (skate wing...blah, lemon or a light sauce would have been nice; porkchop...ordinary; duck...awful; porgy...fine). Meals at his other two restaurants were delicious.
