Mara's never fails to meet our high expectations. My wife had the lump meat crab cocktail appetizer and strip steak entree. I had the tuna tartare and hanger steak. Each dish demonstrated a masterful touch. Our server Jim did an excellent job. Looking forward to our next dinner here!
Love this place. A little pricey but good. was there for valentines day a set menu. was delicious from start to almost finish. The only disappointing thing was the extremely small amount of cold espresso we were served. The oysters and crab appies were very fresh and tasty. salad to die for. I had shrimp and crab with capellini and my husband had the steak both cooked perfectly. Martini made by Jennifer at the bar before being seated perfectly chilled. She is the best. One day I`d love to meet the chef.
Thanks for the good eats!
Wish I took photos. next time...
Good food but not a place to go if you're in a hurry. Service is very slow.
Excellent food! Jennifer was so knowledgeable!
Excellent as usual! We love the food and atmosphere!
We ate at Maras on a Saturday night (6 people) and while the food we had was very good they were out of many things on the menu which was frustrating. The Waiter came back to us 3 times informing us that they had no more of what we ordered... including main courses and desserts. In addition the service was beyond slow. Not sure I will go back:(
The food was very good. Unfortunately they were very understaffed on a Friday night.
Great neighborhood restaurant hidden on a busy road. Service can be slow but everything is made to order. Tuna Tartare with avocado is a must. Save room for dessert.
Delicious. A hidden gem for sure!!
The dinner was great and the service was excellent. We will certainly go back to Mara's
Excellent food, love their Tuna tartar, and cheese cake. Excellent service. I'll keep coming back to dine here.
This was our second time dining at Mara's. Our first experience was so delightful that we wanted to try it again. Jennifer the bartender is a delight, and Jim an amazing server. We left raving about dinner
This past Saturday we made a reservation, arrived early to talk with Jennifer. The bar was packed, and the restaurant was full, due a large party of 30 plus patrons. We had wonderful appetizer's at the bar, and her cocktails are amazing.
We were seated in a small dining room at a table for 2. I ordered the pork while my sister had the rib eye, after a wonderful gorgonzola salad.
The food is amazing give Mara's a try.
Wanted to do something different for our 1st date as a married couple. Was a great spot. Food and service was on point. The decor was unique. Felt like we were eating out of someone’s living room. Will definitely revisit, as the menu itself was very interesting. Quite a few entrees we look forward to trying out.
In one word- phenomenal! Staff was wonderful, food so delicious and atmosphere was so tastefully decorated for the season. Had the salmon- very fresh and cooked to perfection. Do not pass on the homemade desserts! We shared a chocolate hazelnut mousse cake and were in heaven! A well kept secret that the rest of Jersey needs,to know about!
Food was excellent we love everything we ordered specially the tuna tartar. Service was great. Only recommendation is a little update on the dining area specifically the bathroom. But overall it was great. I'll come again for dinner. I would like to try their Cheesecake.
