Fantastic food and service. Shared dishes were served split to two plates. Not loud, which is a blessing. Lovely, cozy, stylish restaurant.

We celebrated our anniversary here, our first time in this well-run restaurant. We choose where to eat based on reviews and word-of-mouth, focusing on comments on the food (service, ambiance, decor, noise level, while important, are secondary in our view). Marea did not disappoint. Every dish in our 4-course meal was perfectly prepared. The pasta was al dente, the side dishes were superb, the seafood fresh and not over cooked. The desserts were also excellent. A great meal. The wine list is extensive and, for New York, fairly priced (can’t say that about a lot of places). The only criticism is that service was somewhat inattentive for. 2-starred Michelin restaurant, a time or two between courses, but particularly at the end of the meal, when it took too long to get our check, even though it was late and the restaurant was not full at that time. That said, this is a great place and we will be back.

My experience at Marea was first class. Yes, the prices they charge are quite high, but when you eat the food you know exactly where that money goes. Towards top flight ingredients , impeccably sourced and prepared seafood, phenomenal cooking, exceptional thought and judgement when crafting dishes, efficient and flawless service and an exhaustive wine list. And the bread.....wow. Best multigrain bread I've had in my life. Marea is as good as it gets and I will be back as soon as I can afford it!

Marea is absolutely fantastic in every way. Top notch service, classy ambiance, food that is out of this world, just a first class experience all the way. One of the better meals I've had in my lifetime. And seeing Bruce Springsteen walk in as I was walking out made the experience that much better. Highly recommend.

Exceptional as ever. Marea and it's staff remain one of my NYC favorites. Literally, as perfect as a lunch could be. For dining of this quality, the weekend prix fix Is a wonderful value. With our wine, (and the wine selection is equally superb), my wife and I had Pacific snapper, followed by roasted halibut for her and Strozzapreti pasta with crab and sea urchin for me. All were prepared and presented to perfection - just enough to satisfy and fill without being stuffed. We finished off with fresh maple doughnuts with spiced sugar.

We’ve been to Marea on numerous occasions for dinner over the years but never for lunch. Last minute reservations yesterday and as always, they did not disappoint. The service was exceptional and the food as always was so fresh and perfectly prepared. Mushroom risotto, Black Sea bass and halibut. Now that’s a great lunch.

Went here for our anniversary and decided to take the five course tasting menu. Although it is far cheaper than the likes of Jean George, it has no comparison. The food was so-so, not impressive ; but the portions are very tiny. Out of the five courses , we liked the Crudo(raw fish) best. Not worth it in my opinion. Maybe if we did not get the tasting menu, maybe it would have been better, who knows. For sure I will not be back.

We visit NYC often and eat at fine restaurants most of the time. This is by far the finest restaurant we have had the pleasure of visiting. The service is impeccable, and the food is prepared very simply and presented quite well. We will be sure to dine at Marea every time we’re in the city.

We came pre-theatre for dinner. We allowed plenty of time (1:45 minutes) to dine, yet still had to dash out before ordering dessert. Food was outstanding. We had gnochetti and sirloin as pasta/meat courses, tuna (tonno) and lobster appetizers. All were amazing. Disappointed that service was a little slow, we waited nearly 10 minutes for first greeting, and had to wait for drink refills several times.

This is the best restaurant in manhattan hands down. If you like Mediterranean and Italian food this is the spot. This is amongst the best restaurants in Columbus circle and I feel it’s probably one of the best in the world. The wine selection by ten glad and bottle is bar none to any other place in manhattan. The raw seafood is definitely the best I have ever had outside of marseille France. The bone marrow and octopus pasta is what they are known for and it’s simply heaven. The cocktail list is also amazing. The best thing to do is the pre fix menu. There is so much to say from the decor, waitstaff and the food execution that maybe it may not be the most out there culinary experience like other 3 Michelin stars but is definitely the most solid meal you get anywhere in the world and is definitely the best 2 Michelin Star restaurant I have ever been to.

The restaurant was amazing! Our server was great and accommodating. We wanted non-alcoholic drinks, and she suggested a few options that were not on the menu after we told her our personal taste preferences. All the food came out after each previous plate was finished. Beautifully plated and was the best Italian food I've had. We had the Dentice, Canestrelli, Gnocchetti, and Tagliata off the dinner menu. My favorite was the Canestrelli, and my boyfriend's was the Gnocchetti.

Would recommend for dates/anniversaries, really romantic.

Service certainly could be improved. The servers lacked polish and the front desk did not seem to know what they were doing. Décor (especially flowers) also needs a professional touch. Food, on the other hand, was quite good.
