What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.8

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.

Ratings 8.5-9.0:Now we’re in the range of absolutely excellent restaurants that you might go to more than once a year/lifetime. These restaurants tend to define a city, and make up the places that you absolutely cannot miss if you want to have any credibility as a restaurant-informed person in a major metropolis.

We had such a memorable experience here. The food was absolutely delicious...from the bread basket to the coffee...every single dish! We didn't want to leave a single morsel on the plate. It was our 40th anniversary and we truly felt celebrated and special. The pacing of the meal was good, we never felt rushed. All of the staff was so friendly; no stuffiness here, just genuine friendliness and happiness. Totally recommend it.

Food was average, not a Michelim star restaurant, just average regular restaurant. Pasta was too soft, like kids pasta. Service good. Wine list very good. Not worth the price and the reviews.

Our first visit and we really enjoyed it. Great location, nice seating area, ample space between tables. Good drinks and wine list with some good value wines. Excellent oysters, delicious crab pasta, and grilled prawns. Thought the food was really good.
Shame about the bathrooms though! Please send in the cleaners more than once a day!

I dined at Marea to celebrate a birthday. I have never experienced a restaurant not acknowledging a celebration in any way - not even a verbal happy birthday never mind the bare minimum one scoop of ice cream with a candle. I dine out approximately 4-5 times per week for business and about 2 times a week for pleasure. This experience fell far below the experience one would think for a restaurant of this caliber. Literally I have had more of a celebratory greeting and acknowledgement from two star restaurants. I was thinking of holding my parents 50 wedding anniversary at Marea. Now I clearly know not to and will make sure my foodie friends know to never celebrate a special occasion at this restaurant

The service is what made our experience just ok. Our waiter was not familiar with the menu and was unable to answer basic questions. The sommelier did not appear to have tried any of the wines we asked about, his discriptions of the wines were poor at best. The food on the other hand was great minus the steak I ordered. The steak was over charred and I had to spit multiple pieces of gristle out because it was too tough to chew.
