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.

The quality of the food, and the fine service make this an outstanding experience. The price of the meal is unfortunately in line with the quality. We had 2 prix fixe orders, and it was honestly too much food, at a cost of $350 with tip (no alcohol). So, for special occasions, this place is the bomb. Next time we will get two appetizers, one pasta dish, 2 mains, and split a dessert and probably save $100 off the check. Still, highly recommended.

I went to dinner last week. We loved the atmosphere, loved the wine and loved the
food!!! Cannot stop talking about the fabulous food and experience! How often does a Mom
get to have dinner with her sweet, talented son and the restaurant to be a 10 plus.

Will be back with my husband!

We had a wonderful Astice, shared the Rissotto and the classic Branzino. Everything perfect. I am not surprised because I have been in Marea several times and it was always perfect. But I am surprised with comparisons. Next day I went to SISTINA and could not believe it. Horrible everything and much more expensive than Marea. I think that something is going wrong with people. How can exist SISTINA? Better stay at home with a piece of bread. Or nothing.

So I had the Dover sole , and it was good , but not fileted tableside, Which was surprising. The carrots side dish was wonderful. My husband had the baked lobster which he thought was meager and not as good as he thought it would be. Our appetizers were fine. The big complaint was the dessert I ordered the fresh donuts. They were so hot that my first bite burned all the way down my throat. They were nice enough to bring me a ton of water, and took it off the bill, but I suffered with a sore throat for 2 days. We had been to Marea several times, and it was always wonderful, so maybe we just had a bad night. Because of that, we might come back again, but this night was a disappointment.

Marea holds two Michelin stars because it is an incredibly special jewel in the heart of Manhattan. The team, seafood, pastas, desserts, and extensive wine list are exceptional. Our favorite spot in Gotham. Five stars. Five stars. Five stars.

I was very disappointed with several of the dishes. The lobster risotto had way too many ingredients making it almost inedible, and the short rib ravioles were tasteless.

Start to finish, this was one of the finest meals we have had at this location since the closure of San Dominico. Two-hours passed in a painless afternoon in NYC. Food, service, ambience, they’ve got it all. Clearly this restaurant deserves every one of its Michelin stars. I leave it to the gods about a third star; were this to happen, we would not at all be surprised.

Food was excellent overall. We all had the 4 course prix fixe. With 9 of us we could sample a lot. The only dish that I felt was not on par was the clams and spaghetti. The pasta itself was good and properly prepared The clams were perfectly sweet but the butter lemon parsley sauce was too oily and too lemony strong I guess I am spoiled by having had this dish in Florence and few places since have made it as well. The squid ink ravioli were wonderful The halibut dish perfectly prepared and fish not dry The grilled octopus was very interesting and not rubbery The chocolate mousse cake dessert was creamy and with beautiful presentation as were all the dishes artfully prepared. Will definitely return
