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.

The food and service was extraordinary. Unfortunately, there was a table of 8 intoxigated men directly behind our table. They were screaming the entire time. Unfortunately no one said anything to them.

Had a great time here. Food was delicious. Noise level was high and though I like a dimly lit restaurant, this one was a little too dark for my taste (and eyes).

Very interesting and well crafted menu. Be warned that the pork belly tacos are a "do it yourself" assembly. Well worth the effort as they were fantastically delicious. The sommelier is incredibly knowledgeable and helped us find the hidden, and not too expensive, gems on the somewhat overwhelming list. Well worth the trip for a wonderful evening.

Marc Forgione was recommended to me by the concierge of the hotel I stayed in four years ago. I had dinner there with my kids and was extremely impressed, so much so that I decided it was the perfect venue for my girlfriend's birthday this time.

It didn't disappoint.

Once again the food was excellent and the service superb. They asked prior to our arrival if it was a special occasion and they, very kindly, had a card wishing my girlfriend a happy birthday, as well as a candle in her dessert.

The place has a cool laid back ambience, exactly what you'd expect from an upmarket New York.

Superb.

I do not have the creative writing talent to do a review of this fabulous restaurant justice. The entire evening was perfect, the drinks, the staff, the setting and of course the high light- THE FOOD. We opted for the tasting menu with the wine pairing and each dish was an amazing experience all its own. How often do you go to a restaurant where the presentation of plates comes with eating directions for maximum enjoyment. We have been before this and we will be back.

This was our 5th time at MF and I’m sad to say that while the flavours of the food were all on pointe, I was a little disappointed. We arrived a little early and so went to get a drink at the bar. Drinks were very good as was the bartender. We were told if we wanted to sit right away we would need to sit outside... We were finally seated ~20 minutes after our reservation and after enquiringly to the bartender.
As usual we ordered the tasting menu. Wow, the portions has shrunk over the years. The lobster and Texas toast was tiny - one bite of lobster and a tiny piece of bread. Service was ok but it was difficult to hear the descriptions due to the noise level. The egg dessert was awesome and the wine pairings were superb.
Sadly, I will have to think twice about returning...

Great dinner! But that's expected from an iron chef level restaurant. The ravioli appetizer and the chili lobster were spectacular. Can't even begin to say how delicious the special of the day dessert was. Cheese cake ice cream. If they serve it that day, definitely a must try!

First off, this place deserves more than 5 stars. I made a reservation to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and notified the restaurant of this. We were seated at a very nice, corner booth, where a birthday card from the restaurant was waiting for him. Wow, I've celebrated birthdays at many restaurants in NYC and this was a first! What a nice surprise! The service was impeccable - the most welcoming, friendly, kind staff. Our dinner started off with a champagne toast from the restaurant. Our waiter was excellent, helpful and gave us great food recommendations. The food was excellent and delicious! I highly recommend the "chicken under a brick," truthfully the best chicken I've ever had and full of flavor. And to end the meal, we had the s'mores dessert (complimented with a birthday candle and a "Happy Birthday!" written in chocolate sauce on the plate), which was delightful! I highly recommend this restaurant, not only because the food is amazing, but also because the staff is superb. I cannot thank you enough for making our experience so special. We will definitely be back very soon!

We had a wonderful Anniversary at Marc Forgione. The service was excellent. Everybody working there is quite attentive and stay on top of everything from filling up drinks to bringing out the food and cleaning up after we finished. The selection of drinks and wines are very comprehensive. They keep their menu concise allowing them to make sure each item they cook is perfect in every way. And perfect it was. Their steak was incredible as were the scallops. Overall, the evening was more than memorable and we will deffinately be returning for future occasions.

A very warm thank you to all the staff at Marc Forgione!!!
