Marc Forgione is bar none my favorite restaurant! The food is phenomenal and has an amazing downtown city vibe.
Excellent food, excellent service!
Cannot say enough about how excellent the food was. Absolutely fantastic.
The food was outstanding!
Outstanding on every account.
This was one of the top 3 dining experiences of my life! Service was attentive and impeccable, thank you Nora! Right out of the gate, the shishitos were the best I've ever had followed by a tartar dish that was mouth watering...I had the skirt steak...tremendous and topped off by a delectable dessert. The drinks were unique and some of the best cocktails as evidenced by the fact that they offer Monkey47 Gin, a favorite of mine. A truly memorable and phenomenal experience!
Our expectations were high for this Iron Chef restaurant and…they were met. Excellent service including the sommelier. It was a birthday dinner and because the restaurant knew that there were extras included—a birthday card at the table followed by a complimentary glass of nice and dry champagne. Food was excellent and we had an extra glass of wine in lieu of dessert.
Always a great time at MF! Lobster toast and 10 minute cookies never disappoint.
Better than ever. We had the shishito's to snack (which were limey and delicious), Hiramasa (like the old kampachi dish, with szechuan button), scallops with nduja and clams (unbelievably good, layered flavors, and no idea how they do that "cor in the Cob which wasn't "on the cob," but some sort of cob-shaped mass of corn and other goodies - yum), hubby had skate, and friends got the classic chicken under brick. Everything was presented beautifully but most important every single dish tasted amazing. Complex, balanced flavorings, perfectly prepared. Wait staff was friendly and helpful, attentive without hovering, and the Som was very helpful finding more offbeat selections. Forge has always been one of our "go to" restaurants, but it is now at the very top of our list.
Forgione’s has always been a favorite of ours, and it did not disappoint. From the time we arrived, the staff was totally attentive and very accommodating. We sat outside, and even though the degustation menu is not offered for outside seating, the staff adjusted the menu so that it felt like we were having the full tasting menu. All dishes were outstanding. And the highlight of the evening was Chef Forgione coming over and wishing us a happy anniversary. Can’t wait to return.
Top notch service, delicious food and a nice chill downtown ambience makes this one of our favorites. Chicken under a brick, with its perfect level of pepper based seasoning is more than enough for two people and it highly recommended. Robert our server was wonderful in helping us feel welcome and we really appreciated his guidance and positive energy.
Dinner was awesome. Food amazing, service top notch, Somm Kyle was great! Thank you for a really special anniversary.
Had heard excellent things from friends but didn’t live up to the hype. Well cooked food, but prices seem high for a pretty straightforward menu. The dinner still would have been a good experience given cute ambiance and well executed food, but the service was absolutely horrendous. Our waiter was snobby, rude and absent, and the staff seemed generally untrained and confused.
Birthday dinner. To me this is a very chef-driven place- the food is incredible but there are minor atmosphere issues. My husband and I both said the food "punches above its weight" compared to the prices and the somewhat casual atmosphere.
Brick chicken is our go-to! Comes with potatoes and broccolini and is brought to you in a deep cast iron dish sizzling - amazing. Service is impeccable and on top of that very friendly. Love this place!
Everything about the meal was great until the check came and I noticed that it included a 10% COVID-19 recovery charge. While our server explained payment of the charge is optional when we questioned the charge,,my friend and I who split the check were put off by the stealthy way it was added- neither of us had seen any mention of the fee on the menu or elsewhere in the restaurant. We paid it and did not punish the server but, excellent as the meal was, I doubt I’ll ever go back because of the way the restaurant hid the charge.
Amazing service and food. Ask for Stephen Taj recommendations… he a d his colleagues are just great. Great place to spend a special dinner
Dining here for over 10 years, the food and service are outstanding!
Food & Service very good! Guests at other tables too noisy though.
Food is excellent. It’s very noisy and hard to have a convo inside but still a great place!
the most amazing experience! every aspect was spectacular and we will most definitely be back!! we made another reservation on the spot to come back in a few weeks!!
they had a personalized card for my boyfriends birthday and were so sweet as we celebrated his special night!! truly such an amazing night!!! the food was SUPERB!!! absolutely extraordinary!! highly recommend!!
Just awesome service, thank you Mitch and Kyle!!!!!
Smaller menu but still delicious, can't wait to go back. Their sommelier is very good too.
Thank you so much for a spectacular meal and providing such amazing service!
It was flat out amazing, thank you Mitch for a wonderful experience!
The last place we ate over a year ago was at Marc Forgione. And we ventured out again for the first time recently. It is our favorite neighborhood restaurant and we were thrilled to be back.
We have eaten here many times before and loved it. Our recent experience, however, was terrible. The menu is extremely limited and they were out of one of the additions to the menu. The prices are very high for what you get, and the food this visit was just average...very disappointing return.
Marc Forgione was very considerate and made our night a great experience. We celebrated our one year anniversary there and they had some special treats for us along with a hand written note. Very thoughtful and made our night very special!
Great food as always. The halibut and Chili lobster are our absolute favorites.
Flawless, as usual.
One of my favorite restaurants in Manhattan. And I'm so glad to see that the restaurant is still surviving during Covid. The quality of food, service, ambiance, etc. has remained unchanged despite the pandemic. Thank you for an amazing time always!
Friendsgiving celebration - amazing food, have been a long time devotee. With that being said, kind of disappointed the bread & amuse bouche disappeared. Other than that, a great dinner!
Dinner was amazing. The Forge crew did a great job and made our special occasion even more special.
From the happy birthday card for my friend to the service to the food to the live music across the street, I cannot recommend Marc forgione highly enough!!!
Always great service. Friendly, knowledgeable but most importantly they make you feel like their guest. Food fantastic as always. I’m a repeat customer & always look forward to my next visit. Well done again.
After receiving poor service (delays, several orders forgotten) and following my regular support of this local restaurant throughout the pandemic, I was disappointed to be handed a check with a 10% COVID fee included along with a guilt trip from the server about how the extra 10% on top of my 20% tip is needed for all of the suffering the restaurant has endured during the pandemic. Only after it was added to the bill and following the guilt trip from the server was I told it is not mandatory. By then, any good will was lost. I thought our being regular customers through a pandemic was enough - unfortunately, not. If funds are needed, it is much better to just increase the prices. Otherwise, as was the case for us, I left feeling like I was taken advantage of instead of appreciated for my business.
Food is to die for. Amazing
Best restaurant experience in years.
