What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.2

Marc Forgione is a good choice when you need a non-stuffy special occasion spot.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

Amazing. AMAZING. I've been dining here since 2010 and there is always something new and incredibly delicious, with both the cuisine and the beverage program. The service is always top notch as well. But one of the best things is, it is not stuffy at all. High quality, high service, but very welcoming.

Likely the most under-rated restaurant in NYC. Anyone who is local and knows this place likely loves it and raves about it. Most, however, do not - and that's a shame.
Chicken under a brick is a staple and a must order. Simple dish that will ruin you for chicken anywhere else forever. I believe it's an example of what a professional chef can do with a fairly simple dish - with quality ingredients and simple preparation. It's not something that's unattainable or made with a special ingredient. It's a simple dish that everyone can "TRY" to replicate at home, but will never get right. So much so, that Forgione actually gives the recipe out as a postcard.

My husband and I joined two other friends for a birthday dinner. When we arrived, there was a handwritten card on the table to the birthday celebrant. The service was phenomenal - top notch but never stuffy. The waitstaff were engaging and friendly, immediately attentive to any needs (such as multiple accidentally dropped napkins) without fuss or formality. The menu had a range of prices and if your goal were to minimize cost (which ours was definitely not) then you could manage to keep it reasonable. The food was generally well prepared and flavorful. Our only complaint was that the $47 truffled mac and cheese was dry and the noodles overcooked. If you are going to be audacious enough to charge $47 for mac and cheese, it had better be perfectly prepared. Otherwise, our dinner was blissful. We will certainly be back.

The restaurant is laid out nicely and has a homey rustic feeling. The food though was not as good as I expected. We ordered drinks, appetizers, entrees, and dessert. The brick pressed chicken was tasty, but very oily and the gingerbread Mille Feuille was also tasty, but the gingerbread was undercooked and very doughy. The Asian pear cocktail was delicious.

Once again, a wonderful experience all around at Marc Forgione! The food, service and ambiance were fantastic as always. The s’mores dessert should really be illegal- it’s that good! The wait staff were gracious and attentive and we yet again had an all around fabulous experience. Definitely recommend for a nice dinner out.

Our dining experience at Marc Forgione was incredible. We chose this restaurant for our anniversary, and the staff made sure our dinner was special. They even wrote us a handwritten card wishing us a Happy Anniversary (along with a complimentary glass of champagne!). The food was outstanding, and the ambiance was warm, cozy, and romantic. Next time we are in NYC, we will definitely be back.

Had been wanting to go here for a while and saw my opportunity when a visiting friend came to town (with his deep expense account in hand). The ambiance is great (dark and moody) and is better for date night and friendly conversation than turnt up big or loud groups. The overall service was great and the food was delicious.

I had the scallop app and stripped bass main and my friend had the chili lobster and pork chop main. My friend is a big health nut and could not begin to eat the pork which was over 50% fat. We sent that back and they quickly brought out a new one that was much more lean.

The reason I dinged them slightly on scoring is that for both the scallop and fish dish I thought the amount of protein on the plate was way below average. I don't mind spending a lot on food but if I am still hungry after an app and main that is unacceptable for me. Dessert shouldn't be required just to satiate my hunger.

Booked for a romantic birthday - perfect evening!!

I’m a foodie, one of the best meals of the year. Everything was delicious - tuna tartar (must try), chicken for two (yes, get it) and yummy pumpkin donuts (crunch on outside and moist inside) with I think a vanilla-sage ice cream.

Service is on point with surprise b-day touches, great balance of being attentive and giving enough space/privacy.

Coming back!!
