Good food but way below DANIEL. Taking drinks and wine off the check the cost of the appetizer, entree and desert were overpriced. Not a good value for the money.

Great oyster selection
Fusilli with bone marrow and octopus is exceptional
Duck ravioli great
Anchovy probably could be better (perhaps lose the hard bread)
Desert with shaved ice is excellent.
Service is fantastic.
This is a posh restaurant with lots of wealthy clientele... perhaps a bit stuffy but you should be yourself and have fun...!

Marea is one of the most unique restaurants in the world. It is part of the list of the greatest fish restaurants, on par with Le Bernardin in NYC. BUT what makes it so unique is that you always feel relaxed. There is never any pressure. The staff stays totally unobtrusive. It might be the most beautiful nautical designed restaurant. The wine list( we are former Wine Educators ) is massive but the sommeliers make life so easy by directing you to wines that marry your chosen dishes. We consider Marea the perfect restaurant because there is not one negative to their creation. We had the following: Mediterranean fluke, cucumber, mint/ pacific kanpachi, stonefruit peperonata, pistachio/ Nantucket Bay scallops, salsify, grape, crosnes/ruby red shrimp, chilies, rosemary oil//acquerello risotto, lobster, roasted tomato, marcona almond. A total experience.

Marea is a favorite, both dependable and great service. For Thanksgiving, we decided to treat everybody instead of sacrificing a few to do all the work.
The menu was fixed with many choices, something for everyone. While the first course and the primi were both amazing, the secondi fell a little short. In particular, the turkey left quite a bit to be desired (too brined), and the halibut was frankly a bit boring. By dessert though, Marea redeemed itself with all choices being outstanding.
All in all I think it was a wonderful experience, but with the price tag, I wish the main courses were a bit more spectacular.

One of my top favorite NYC restaurants. The best dish on the menu is the pasta with bone marrow and octopus. You would not think it sounds good but it works perfectly. I highly recommend it!!

probably the best Italian - Mediterranean in NYC. Ambience is upscale, somewhat modern, with a clientele to match, including heads of business, politics, and celeb A listers. Drinks at the bar are worth an early arrival: hosts are gracious, service is professional, pleasant, and knowledgeable. signature dishes always reliable are: ricci (particularly if from Santa Barbara or Hokaido), polipo with roasted potatoes, fusilli with bone marrow (my favorite pasta addiction) fish of note: (always) branzino (best in NYC) or the sole, both served with contorni. for sweets we prefer the bombolini with dipping sauces, always great. add to the evening the most reliable and knowledgeable expert sommelier on Italian wines (always trust Francisco, always) and you have all the ingredients necessary to keep you returning time and time again.

I was really underwhelmed by my experience at Marea, especially considering it is a Michelin Star restaurant. The server was somewhat less than attentive. Although each dish was beautifully presented, the food overall was fine; every dish was too salty. There weren't many flavor combinations that stuck out as unique, and a lot of the ingredients that should have been featured were muted by more cost effective ingredients. The welcoming bite of croquettes were as cold as ice. The bussers/food runners were great, although could be a bit more knowledgable of the aspects of each dish. Waters and bread plates were never empty. Drinks and wine were good. Overall, this was average considering what it should be. I think this would be a fine place to go with a group of friends; the atmosphere was much more modern and lively than I expected. However, I do not see this as the place to go when looking for a fine dining restaurant considering all that NYC has to offer.
