What Insiders Are Saying
Marea is about as good as upscale eating gets in Midtown, and there’s a lot of that around. Don’t miss the bone marrow and octopus fusilli.
Did tasting menu. Was a lot of delicious food. Octopus was very tough but flavors were great in everything.
Excelente lugar, muy buena comida, atención esmerada y un ambiente tranquilo y de buen gusto.
Es para regresar.
Delicioso. Servicio lento pero valió la pena
Excellent food, had the four course menu, it was outstanding, nice variety . Service was most knowledgeable I have had, from providing great service but knowing the proper timing, not over bearing. Best meal we had during our 3 night stay in NYC. Would highly recommend . Not cheap but well worth it!!
I had a very high expectation for this restaurant due to all the reviews. I think you need to be careful what you select from the menu. There are some very good dish and some that are so-so. Always go for the seafood. It’s an Italian restaurant, but really, their speciality is seafood.
We ordered some dishes recommended by the server and some meat dishes we wanted to try. Soft crab was superb, while octopus ragu fissile, which was supposed to be the signature dish, was just OK. Meat was not so good. Desert was nothing special.
The service was excellent, and the ambiance was also very nice, but if you are paying that much money, you could find food far better than theirs unless you know exactly what you want from the menu.
Pasta was too spicy.
Lobster with burrata excellent.
Sword fish prepared perfectly
Very nice meal but rather very classic and not original. does it worth the price?
We really enjoyed our evening . Group of 4. My only criticism which is small is that our entree plates were taken away 5 minutes after we were finished. I felt the service somewhat rushed at that stage of the meal. Apart from that, it was first class all the way.
Amazing experience from start to finish. Our server Darnell is wonderful. Let Darnele order for you, you wont be disappointed!
Arguably the best dining experience of my life. Thank you Marea team for the extraordinary food and hospitality and Sam for being one of the city’s best bartenders.
An extraordinary meal and brilliant service. I was really blown away by the exquisite details and how beautifully they took care of us, even when we arrived last minute!
The food is about as good as it gets. A gem in the NYC sea of dining options!
Incredible food ... staff was so attentive. My scallops and steak were cooked perfectly. The foie gras torchon was the highlight of the appetizers. Both pastas were mind blowing. Can’t wait to go back !
Good food. But heavily flavored. Super expensive and not worth the bucks
A little overrated. This is our second time and we were underwhelmed. There are better restaurants in the city with a lower comparable rating than this one.
It’s was great!
The food, the ambience, and the service were great. I always enjoyed eating at Marea! I always ordered the prefix menu! I want to thank David Schneider for his grateful hospitality and providing an excellent customer service!
We were not too impressed by the wine pairing to the Chef Menu, as wines were all pretty young but for the Sauternes at dessert.
The pastas were not exceptional, but we may have not made the best choice (next time I'd like to try the gnocchetti).
The languistine appetizer is divine.
The raw fish selection is delicious.
The desserts are exceptionally good.
The roasted octopus is great and service is really great.
The food and service is reliably excellent. This was the first time my partner came to Marea, and we both loved the octopus and scallops.
Too expensive, small appetizers. The food taste good but is it not expectional! It is not a MUST restaurant
food is good BUT OVERPRICED. We went there for lunch by recommendation from a plastic surgeon friend that warn me about the price, make it less likely to go on a weekly basis. The lobster first course was excellent and i recommend it. The pasta was also very good. The desert menu, i didn't find any exciting choice so i did not order. In summery it is a good place to go for special occasion.
Cannot order 5 course tasting menu unless all party order it together. Clams smelled like chemicals. Not impressed at all.
The dining experience was excellent. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. We would definitely dine here again.
The ambiance, food and service were all superb. My wife and I ordered the octopus appetizer and it was moist, well textured and served with a wonderful light sauce. The swordfish main course which we split was fantastic. definitely order this! The waiter and waitstaff were attentive and nonintrusive. There was little noise in the restaurant. We went to 2 other restaurants for dinner on this trip (Gato and Babbo) and Marea was clearly the best food. We will return.
Well-heeled crowd for a well-heeled location. Food lived up to the hype. I would recommend ordering one from different categories instead of selecting their 4-course tasting option. A table-shared whole fish for the entree plus a pasta is the way to go. Plus select a few appetizers for the table - one of which MUST include the lobster burrata (a top-5 all time app).
One of the best Restaurants in NYC
Way too salty. I’m still dehydrated. Disappointed. I had high hopes for Marea but Del Posto is still tops in my book.
Always amazing food. Octopus was a little disappointing this time , however. I think the pastas are really the standout here. Great service
Marea is indeed a five star experience. Treat yourself to their homemade pasta or any number of other delicious items on their menu.
Excellent food. Service was incredibly friendly but was inattentive at times
Wine pairing was more about what the restaurant wanted to serve versus what we liked - we didn’t even drink the desert wine pairing as it was disgusting. The crudo was amazing but the branzino course was underwhelming. The service was subpar for a higher end restaurant- took forever to order and no attempt to ask how our meal is/was. It was also a celebration which I noted on the reservation but the restaurant made no note of it or asked us about it.
Fantastic. The two Michelin stars are well-earned.
Delicious food, beautifully presented and served. Went for lunch and would go back again for another special occasion.
Great food, service and experience! A must go when you are in Manhattan!
Phenomenal. We started the day in ventral park and made our way here. A true gem.
The place pulls you back to Italy, with perfection in every dish and new flavors and tradional bliss swirling around, an experience that can only be said as “perfection”.
Try the pasta, come hungry.
Great experience. Everything was perfect. Will definitely be back again!
Excelente lugar, excelente experiencia y un excelente trato a pesar de que veníamos de caminar todo el día por NYC con aspecto de turistas perdidos. MIL GRACIAS POR ESA CENA.
