    Very pretty restaurant. Had reservations for 8:30 on Saturday and it was not busy at all. I read someplace there would be valet, but there wasn't. Luckily we found a spot right in front. My husband had short ribs and they were amazing. I had salmon. It was ok. Wouldn't order it again. We were surprised at the end of the meal with some truffles for our anniversary. Very sweet. Next time I think I would want to sit outside and see the sights.

    This is our second time at Mare Rooftop and it's a wonderful restaurant. It has a beautiful setting with lots of outdoor seating. All of the staff were extremely attentive - from checking in for our reservation, throughout our meal, and when we left one of the hostesses ran over to the elevator bay to arrange for an elevator to be available for us immediately. There is a very nice wine menu and my wife had a wonderful Rose wine and I had a very nice house special cocktail - a blueberry collins. Our entrees were very very nice - the halibut limoncello and the pasta vongole, as was the flourless chocolate cake we shared for dessert. This is a grate restaurant.

    First time at Mare and we came away impressed. Really nice setting complemented by creative and tasty food. Server was exceptional. Cocktails were very good as well… could have been a little stronger for the price if I had to pick something to be critical about.

    Overall wonderful dining experience. We celebrated our 17th anniversary and we received truffles and champagne on the house! Service was outstanding, food delicious. There could have been side options with the salmon but we had the cheese board to start so plenty to eat! Steak was amazing. Kind of busy and noisy which made for distracted convo. We enjoyed the restaurant and will be back! Terrific setting!

    Service was amazing. It was clear they all communicated. Upon arriving the hostess greeted us with a Happy Birthday for lu wife, then the individual who was pouring water did the same and took our drink order. When the waiter came over he did the same and shared he was aware we ordered (named the drinks). The food was incredible as well. Will go back!

Evelyn was amazing with us and so were everyone that seated and checked in on us. We will be back very soon! We got the steak and lamb, both highly recommended!

    Mare was great. Cool views, nice night. Had shellfish for appetizer and couldn't have been better. I ordered a ribeye special for $56 and it was just okay. Had scallops on it that were fine, but not seared enough and ordered steak medium rare and it was a bit overcooked. My date ordered a pasta dish with lobster that looked amazing and she finished every bite.

    Everything about Mare Rooftop was fabulous. We were in the middle of a heatwave but opted to eat outside. There was a nice breeze and the ambiance was great. The food was wonderful (salmon for me, vegan pizza for my husband) and the service very attentive. Very trendy vibe with lots of “beautiful people” in their late 20’s to 30s…but we (in our late 50s) felt fine here too. We will definitely be back (even in colder weather the indoor space is very open and inviting). Plenty of parking was nice too.

    Gorgeous restaurant with a great view! We had a lovely window table and excellent service. Bread and oil was provided but the oil was a bit boring and might be more impressive with some fresh herbs or park to enhance. We got the cheese board and our server suggested including the add-on charcuterie which was impressive and beautifully put together. Very glad we added on! The shrimp cocktail was cleaned well, plump, fresh and delicious. I got steak frites and my friend got the lobster pasta. We both loved our dishes but both dishes needed a few dashes of finishing salt as they were both notably under seasoned. A small detail but the flavors of the dishes didn’t fully sing until finished with salt. Otherwise the meal was essentially flawless. The owner/manager? dropped by the table and was lovely. Our server with the cute bob style hair was busy but excellent and still attentive despite having quite a few table including a large party. She was excellent and helped make the experience. Will definitely be back to Mare soon!

    1.5 hours for dinner to come out - food was over cooked. Manager did acknowledge and took care of us, but overall service was very slow and I wouldn’t recommend dinner. Ambiance was great, I’d recommend for drinks and appetizers only.

    Great experience overall. Our outdoor seating changed to indoors due to thunderstorms. The roof was made of glass and it was amazing to see the lightning strikes. Service was great and we had Nicole. Everything we ordered was delicious - Blue Ginger Lobster Pasta, Shrimp and Pesto Shumai, Limoncello Halibut, various dessert specials of the day. I liked the dress code too. It was nice without feeling stuffy.
