First time going to Mare, very unique dinning experience where we sat by the fireplace. Our shell fish tower was loaded with sweet oysters and other fine shell fishes like lobster and king crab. The beef carpaccio and clam linguine was very savory. Will definitely come back again in the future to sit by the fireplace

Great place and service. My girlfriend and I were out of town and a uber was taking 45 minutes. We asked them if they can call a cab for us, he said you can wait for one on the corner they are all lined up but they weren’t. My girlfriend and I walked in the 19 degree weather 20 minutes to our hotel. Place was great though

Had an amazing birthday meal here! The service was amazing and we loved the seating at lounge style fireplace. We ordered the filet mignon, crab cakes and burger. Would definitely come here again and recommend for a celebration meal or date night!

Our server was very nice, but the place was rather chilly.
The food was really good but you expect it at that price. They gave us a free loaf of bread at the end.

Was truly a great restaurant. I am so picky when it comes to restaurants + this truly satisfied everything I was asking for.
