The crab pasta was so good I ate half my partner’s plate. My own scallops were also very good.

Extensive wine list by the glass. We were there after theatre, but did not feel rushed. Had the squash antipasto and it was wonderful. Pastas were delicious. It was a great late night choice

I have been going to Marea for several years and is amazing how they keep their magic going. We order crudos, astice (lobster burrata), fusilli with red wine braised octopus and bone marrow and some langoustines, everything was outstanding.

Nothing short of amazingly delicious. Had concert at beacon prior so we made an 11pm resy- no shortage of diners at that time, many tables full. Lobster risotto then the bronzino Some dessert and drinks all were fab. Service on point (and funny- i was seated next to podium and noticed a bit of dust and ran my finger thru- server made over to tell me those were dusted 2x a day....it was clearly linen napkin dust and while I didn’t care it was funny she caught me. We had a laugh)

We traveled to NYC to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary and chose Marea for our special dinner. We were seated at a quiet private corner table and our experience from beginning to end was fabulous. Our server Robert was personable and knowledgeable and it felt like we were old friends. We chose the prix fixed 4-course menu that tasted great with every bite. Marea did not disappoint and we cannot wait to go back again.

Always excellent plus. I treated five people to an outstanding lunch with superb service, and I can assure you that they all will return frequently - whether with us or others. We have many friends and colleagues who have moved to the area, and we are always anxious to introduce them to our favorite Manhattan restaurant. Until next time...

MARERA was amazing! The food was out of this world. The chicken was moist, and the octopus pasta was rich in flavor. To cleanse the palette, the triple gelati was superb. Especially the olive oil flavor. Notable wine list as well. The ambiance was classic, with a more than tolerable noise level. So very nice to be able to a conversation where you can hear your party. Service staff was delightful. Will definitely go back.

Food is very good but not out of this world as reviews would have you believe. We had the tasting menu which had too much food and a couple of repetitive tasting/type courses. But a solid choice. Wonderful wine list. Service is top notch. I expect we'll be back since it's a handy location and overall quite a nice and tasty restaurant.

Five stars. Marea is one of only two spots we have enjoyed on multiple occasions where everything has been perfect. Setting, service, courses all perfect. The ingredients and preparation are intoxicating. Breads are ridiculously fresh, magically and proportionally dense for each type. Marea is one of Manhattan’s treasures. And packed even on a Monday night.

2人で3品(前菜、グリル、パスタ)シェアしましたが、量もちょうど良く、全体的に味付けが濃くなく、素材の味が生かされおり、何を食べても美味しかったです。
中でも人気のロブスター前菜が絶品でした。
デザートも挑戦したかったのですが、程よくお腹が満たされてたので、モカチーノとカモミールティーのみを注文。
一緒にサーブされたティラミスの様なプチケーキとクッキーもこれまた絶品。デザートは注文しなくても充分でした。
スタッフもとても感じが良く、きめ細やかなサービスが行き届いてました。
ニューヨークを訪れた際には、必ず立ち寄りたいお店の1つになりました。
