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 were in NYC to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Marea is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always delicious and the service is excellent. Our server tonight was Darnel, she was wonderful...gave us suggestions when we asked and was a pleasure to get to know. We would definitely ask for her to be our server when we return.

Excellent. Simply Excellent. The service, the food, the wine list, the atmosphere combine to make Marea one of NYC's finest dining experiences. Very much enjoyed a leisurely lunch in a fully filled, but nevertheless reasonably quiet, upscale venue. Seafood obviously the specialty, but other menu choices presented. Had one of the best gnochetti plates ever, anywhere.

Went for an early dinner after a Saturday matinee at Lincoln Center. The food was impeccable - as beautiful on the plate as it was delicious to taste. We will come again.

This has been and still is a favorite of mine. The food is always exceptional, whether I am alone at the bar, with a client or with my daughter (and it is her favorite as well). I have my regular faves like the polipo, lobster burrito, fusili. I just had a new pasta with lobster in it and it was great. I have had scallops at Marea and other daily specials. Everything is just always so good. Nice wine list. Ben at the bar makes an awesome cocktail. The staff makes everyone feel special and I always am assured of a great meal and a great evening. Also, everyone that I have referred, have always thanked me and also had wonderful dining experiences.

Once again we loved our experience at Marea in every way. So lovely, so delicious, and yet comfortable and not pretentious. This restaurant is not for those who want huge quantities of food on the plate, but for those who want each bite to be extraordinary.

Legitimately the best seafood restaurant in NYC. For a place with 2 Michelin stars, the 4 course tasting menus is a pretty decent value. You pay a lot, but you get amazing quality and great service every.

Outstanding experience for a special celebration. The service hums and really makes this place a joy and the menu is inventive but be ready to spend $$ especially if you’re having wine (exceedingly high markup). The anchovy crostini, lobster with burrata, sweetbread pasta, and lobster risotto w crispy vegetables all outstanding as well as the scallops entree. Mackerel crostini very bland. Skip the crudo: exceedingly small pieces for the crudo “flight” at $37+ - get another appetizer instead. Desserts good but not outstanding so if not in the mood I recommend to skip (sampled the chocolate, the donuts, and the green apple). Wonderful place to splurge and deserves its rating.

I took my son here for his 40th birthday, and it was an inspired decision. The decor is striking. The service was impeccable; when my son wanted to deviate from the four-course prix fixe, our waiter recommended a mix of dishes that would give him what he wanted at a lower overall price. The wine list was extensive; I had a glass of pinot noir that was truly one of the best pinot's I have ever had. The flavors and imaginitiveness of the cuisine was outstanding. Truly a great restaurant!

Mi mejor regalo y experiencia esta gran Cena .
Vale la pena que lo visiten .
