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.

Our food was delicious and the service was fantastic. Restaurant was a bit warm but it's summer so to be expected. Definitely worth it if you like well prepared fish.

Food is pretty good especially chicken on the brick . Cookie dessert is great and tasty .
However , portion is pretty small. Appertizer comes in 3 pieces and we need to add extra piece for 4 in my party .

Marc Forgione was exceptional! We went for our 1st anniversary and they exceeded our expectations. They provided a hand written card for the occasion included special extras throughout the meal, moved us to their best seat in the restaurant and worked very hard to make it a special evening. Our server was excellent and the atmosphere was great not to mention the food was top notch. I will be back on my next trip to NYC for sure!

Thank you!

Service was very rushed, within an hour of arriving we were done with our dinner. Not what I expected from this level of restaurant and for the price paid.
The food overall was moderate to good, bit salty/over seasoned.

Arrived a little early and the kitchen wasn’t quite open. We were welcomed to sit at the bar where the bartender prepared some delicious cocktails for us while we listened to some upbeat music. Not stuffy at all which was nice for a fine dining experience.

Shortly afterward a very friendly, professional new employee sat us. We enjoyed a nice spot on the patio and tested some more of the cocktail menu. Everything we tried was truly great.

My swordfish was excellently prepared but I wasn’t a huge fan of the sauce which resulted in my meal being a little on the dry side (by choice I suppose I’ll have to admit). My wife’s lamb, however, was fantastic.

Excellent spot to enjoy some great food and drink in a relaxed atmosphere. Worth checking out!

This restaurant is a true gem. The food is innovative, full of flavor and beautifully presented. The chili lobster is a must. The lobster was cooked perfectly and easy to get to (no bib necessary), and the chili broth is amazing. It comes with fresh bread wedges for dunking.
The service was excellent and fun.
Don’t miss this place.

Food was almost a 5. The sushi in crust was overly tart. Otherwise a 5 star. Lost 2 whole stars because we asked for $70-$80 bottle of wine and was first brought a $280 bottle with a verbal introduction of "are you in the industry" We didn't answer question partly because it was an overtly rude ruse to get us to take the bottle that we were turned off from being happy with service the rest of the meal. We happened to be with our adult children so absolutely no problem turning it down. But ruse was so overt that would have laughed it off and refused it if we were in a business meeting. Additionally ordered the porterhouse for 2 at m/p. Just criminal that this perhaps being overly generous with my estimate (2lb steak)on our tab as $160.00. It was delicious. Not worth the price. If $90, okay. The Kamachi appetizer is now served with either 1/4 or 1/2 "button". We had 2 full orders for 4 of us. Last time, we were served a whole "button" per person. Very pretty presentation. In it's current form, just not the same visual punch. Our tab was $800 for the 4 of us. Although a very nice meal, we can't justify/figure out the bottom line. We didnt have this same impression during our last visit. Oh, we had one dessert.

Phenomenal experience! We enjoyed the incredible food, service and fantastic sommelier whose advice we were so happy we followed. The highlights were the best ever Hamachi prep and the dessert special which was a crispy, light chocolate peanut butter doughnut both of which have been the subjects of conversations with anyone willing to listen since our dinner.

This place would have to be my favourite place in the world. It was better than eating dinner on the Eiffel Tower.
The staff was exceptional, our waiter assisted with making the experience even more special by suggesting certain foods and wine matching. Couldn’t recommend them more highly. Will always be a must when I come back to NYC

My husband and I took my sister and her new fiance out to celebrate their engagement and the food and ambiance did not disappoint! The crispy rice with fluke was divine, the hot smoked oysters were delicious and the lobster app was to die for. All entrees tasted great. Get the fresh baked cookies for dessert and the house infused decaf espresso martini. Can't wait to go back!

This restaurant is basically extremely overpriced, period. The bartenders were very nice and the atmosphere at the bar was upbeat and "hip" but the restaurant needs a lot of work concerning the menu and wine list; both are tenable at best.

Prices are way way too high for what is a nice bistro. The mains are mostly over $38 which even for Tribeca is a lot. The menu was also inaccurate - we ordered 'Wellington' which was then brought to us by the waiter as 'steak' - it was not a wellington in any way. No effort in the dish, just a panfried steak. Just a steak at a crazy price. i do not mind paying high prices for good food, but this was a joke. The service was slow and not matched to the amount being charged. If mains were closer to $28-32 pp then ok.

Beautiful rustic romantic restaurant. The food was delicious and matched the beautiful presentation. Attention to detail was impeccable. They greeted us once we walked in since we were celebrating our anniversary and a personal card along with a champagne toast was given. Wait staff was on top of it. We had a great evening. Thanks iron chef, Marc Forgione!!!

Air conditioning not working well that evening. Very humid night. Doors wide open for no reason. After 1 hour of asking they figured out that doors were letting all the humidity in. Spoiled our birthday dinner. Should not have felt so uncomfortable.

I had brunch here for the first time over Memorial Day weekend. First of all, our waiter was absolutely fantastic. Such great personality and a perfectly wonderful sense of humor... everyone should be so cheerful and entertaining! The food was truly amazing and we had the luxury of tasting the side offerings, which were all fantastic. My friend and I felt completely pampered and loved!

Marc Forgione is truly one of my favorite places in the world to spend an afternoon, an evening, a lifetime. Everyone is so welcoming and when you combine the ambiance with the culinary creativity, who wouldn't want to come back over and over again?


I know I'll be back. You couldn't possibly keep me away!

Noisy. There are a bunch of tables near the kitchen. All you hear are slamming pots. We had to ask to be moved but really shouldn’t have those tables in the first place. We ordered the tomahawk. Would have been nice if waiter had told us it was 175. And it was super super fatty. Mostly inedible. Other dishes were standouts — ravioli and halibut. Polenta special was overhyped and mediocre. Service was fine. A little too cool for school. And again, tell us that the special we ar ordering is extraordinarily expensive. Overall, too mediocre to justify return visit.
