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.

We were so pleasantly surprised with this restaurant and menu. Every single bite we had was just so delicious. Staff was very attentive. My husband said that that the halibut was the best he has ever eaten (and he has tried many around the world!). Can't wait to go back there next time we are in NYC!

It was my second time dining at Marc Forgione and it was even better than the last time I came. Excellent service, atmosphere and of course the food is unbelievable. It is my favorite Tribeca spot.

Chef/Ownet Marc Forgione actually came to our table to wish us a happy anniversary! He also made a special appetizer for us to sample and allowed us to take a picture with him!! He was extremely warm and friendly.
Our server, Page, was excellent!! Friendly, professional, and extremely caring.

Here’s one of the best meals we’ve ever had!

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The halibut is definitely the star. Next time will try the tasting menu. Service was well-timed and friendly.

So disappointed. My foodie friend gave this five stars... I’m thinking we went to two different restaurants. Really ... this deserves no more than two stars. The mezcal cocktail, which looked like a colorful club-med drink, was so watered down and boring.The food was either too spicy or flavorless. The lobster in the lobster chili was the only thing that was worthy of the reviews. Unfortunately the broth (chili?) was over spiced. My swordfish was smothered in a sauce, which was tasteless. The shrimp that garnished the fish were inedible. Both desserts we ordered were soooo sweet - after two bites - we were done.

To add insult to injury, we had a server that was either untrained or clueless. We ordered appetizers and cocktails and told him we wanted to wait to order our entrees. However he kept coming back to our table insisting we order our entrees... our appetizers hadn’t even arrived. After telling him we were not ready to order and we were in no rush, he continued to badger us for our order and returning to our table to pick up random scraps of paper on the table.

Lots of money and calories wasted. With so many awesome restaurants in NYC ... skip this one.

The best way to describe this place is “Magical”! It was the best dining experience ever!!! So authentic, romantic, delicious! We would eat there once a week if we lived in New York. We will definately go back every time we visit and will recommend to all our friends! The food, the service, the ambiance....everything was outstanding and exceeded our expectation! Can’t wait to go back!

I am a 57 year old executive and I have dined at many great restaurants throughout the country. Without question, this is one of the best meals that i have ever had. Marc Forgione is now my favorite restaurant. The food is so good I came back with my wife two days later. The steak is amazing, the halibut rocks, and the chicken for two is crazy good. Try the s’mores for dessert. And it is not just the food..the atmosphere is cozy with brick walls and bookcases. The staff and service are amazing. Start with Jason at the front desk who is also my new buddy and host extraordinarie! Yes I love love love this place!!

Amazing food every time. The Kona Kampachi and Chili Lobster are over the top! Visit Jordan at the bar for a cocktail before dinner, she is the best. Lee was our server this past week and was amazing. The staff goes above and beyond, wine selection is amazing and the space is very inviting. I've been going to the restaurant for a few years now, take clients for dinner and would recommend to anyone. One of my favorites in the city.

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!
