I was celebrating my kids first trip in New York and after two days of cramming tourist attractions and activities all day we needed to unwind and relax while enjoying a delicious meal that warmed the heart... though it’s a fancy restaurant and very upscale I can say my kids and my husband and I enjoyed the best spaghetti with butter we had in our lives... the rest of the more intricate food items like the lobster risotto the steak the halibut the burrata lobster were divine. Definitly if your kids are not too loud ( my son Definitly was so i gave him my phone to keep entertained) it’s a definit must go restaurant for food, comfort, and that finesse touche.

We went to this fabulous restaurant over the holidays, had a delicious dinner and could not wait to return when back in a Manhattan from South Carolina. This time I booked an afternoon Valentine meal as we had concert plans for the evening. We chose the five course tasting menu and had one of the best experiences ever! We thoroughly enjoyed each dish, mostly consisting of exquisite seafood and specialty pasta, paired with some fabulous wines. My partner stayed with the white wine accompaniments while I enjoyed the lighter reds that were selected. Service was outstanding, and there was still an air of romance at the corner booth despite it being 230 in the afternoon! Marea will be on our calendar every time we visit the Big Apple!

One of the top restaurants in the city. My wife and I were saying afterward that it was literally one of the best meals we have ever had. Amazing restaurant start to finish.

Food was amazing. Servers changed often and didn’t inform us. Nobody offered another glass of wine until ours had been empty for over ten minutes. Seemed like our table was forgettable. Probably won’t return.

Nice service and nice atmosphere. However the meals are way overpriced for the taste and the expected dinning experience.

Food was salty and service was both slow and inattentive. It took 2 hours for 2 courses. After each course was served our waiter never came to check if things were ok. Whenever we needed something we had to flag down another staff member. Won't re-visit

We had the tasting menu with wine pairing for lunch. A slight snafu with a substitution for one course (which was happily allowed by the restaurant, thank you very much!) resulted in me having two main courses. Everything was excellent and the wine pairings were perfect. Our server, Juliana, was truly delightful. Our server from our last visit also came by to say hello.

In my opinion this is one of the best dining experiences in the city.

We had the four-course menu and were really satisfied and impressed by each of them. Ingredients were fresh and pasta was just the right consistency. We got three desserts and the coconut rice pudding was an obvious winner. Thanks Marea for such a great dining experience again!

Everything we are was delicious. Had the four course tasting menu. My wide and I shared multiple dishes. They knew we were sharing so they split everything without us asking. I thought that was amazing. The streak tartar was probably the best either of us have ever tasted. The pasta with the shrimp and chili, delicious. Scallops were perfection. Pasta with octopus was yummy. The lobster burrata was so good that we asked for extra bread to scoop the cheese from the bottom of the plate. The service was amazing, refilling everything as soon as possible. Loved it.

Expected to love this restaurant. Brother and his family dined here same time last year and said it was very good. 1 Michelin Star. Opted to order a la carte rather than choosing the prix fixe menu, party of 4, each of us chose 3 courses. First courses, 3 crudos and 1 oyster, all were all very good. Second course, pasta with king crab was delicious. Grilled octopus was fine. Two orders of "Astice" - lobster with burrata, basil, and eggplant had absolutely no flavor and was one of the most disappointing dishes I've ever had in a restaurant. Mains were 2 Halibut, 1 - 50 day aged sirloin, and the scallops. The steak had decent flavor, but my guest said it was cooked beyond the temperature he had requested. The Halibut was fine, and had a nice brown sear. The scallops were AWFUL. No sear, no flavor, a little too rare. 3 pieces come with the order. After eating the first one, I offered two of my guests a piece of the second scallop and asked for their opinion - mine was that it was reminiscent of eating warm pork fat. They agreed.
I left the third scaallop on the plate. All of the items that accompanied each main were unmemorable. We had a nice conversation with our waiter early on - but he disappeared somewhere towards the end of the meal and was replaced with someone else. NO ONE ever asked how dinner was. If this were any restaurant anywhere, it might be okay at best; this being a Michelin Star establishemnt, it all fell very short.
