This was our first visit to Mari BYO, and we will be returning! Our dinners were delicious, and mine especially so since our waitress recognized that my food allergies were limiting and suggested helpful changes. I look forward to a time when we can dine indoors and I can then rate the "ambiance".

Exceptional food, but very spotty service and relatively expensive, considering a table of four was $175 with no wine or tip, pushing it to $210 with tip (BYO). That said, service should have been much better and more consistent.

I think pasta is the thing to order here and neither of us did! Our mistake. Otherwise the menu was limited. Excellent service and nice vibe- even outdoors. Will definitely be back!!

We ate outside. The service was prompt, efficient, and friendly, and the food was excellent. I had the calamari and the squid-ink pasta and both were delicious (as was the dessert cannoli). Would happily return anytime!

Service and food was excellent. And for $40 you get an app, an entree, and a dessert! You can’t beat that. On top of that, the service was impeccable . Would highly recommend it!

Glad we tried the “new kid” in town. And just generally happy to see new businesses start at this time. Our server suggested the fixed price. All three of us had. Excellent value.

This is in MHO the best new restaurant in Philadelphia, hands down. Upon arrival we learned the chef is the owner and his wife ensures the quality of service.

Their melody of dining and service are spot-on and beyond compare. The food is simply sublime.

The service is exceptional and the ingredients are fresh, current and superbly combine to produce great flavors.

We celebrated my best friend’s birthday at Mari last night. We all love seafood, so this was a perfect spot. We took advantage of the price fixe option, where you pick any 3 courses from the menu for $40. We had just about everything on the menu and we were blown away. Highlights were the calamari, salmon dip, fried manchengo, crabs and spaghetti special, and the octopus and bucatini. The service was prompt, polite, and just all around lovely. We had perfect weather and enjoyed dining outside. They have a doggie bowl for water, so we got to see some of the cutest pups in Queens Village. Dessert included a candle for the birthday girl, thoughtfully shielded from the wind with a glass so the candle stayed lit for presentation. We will definitely be back!

While it has only been open for just about a month, you would think the restaurant has been a neighborhood “go-to” for years. The block was packed with outside diners enjoying the delicious food. There was initial confusion amongst the waitstaff which caused a delay in receiving our water and menus. But after that, we had a really great experience. Our waitress was the sister of the owner and provided great recommendations (crab pasta and nutella cannoli!) and general enthusiasm about the restaurant. They were also accommodating when I had to push back my reservation AND they put a candle in my boyfriends dessert for his birthday. Can’t wait to go back!

Our experience was okay. I think they booked more reservations than they were equipped to handle. They were out of some glassware and service was a little slow. Some food was cold when it arrived. Mari is a new restaurant that has some kinks to work out. We would give it another try in a few months.

This place was incredible. Had no idea that it was a fairly new restaurant and it exceeded all my expectations. The service was great and the food was amazing! High quality and fresh. It was a very peaceful outdoor dining experience in a good neighborhood. I had a meal that was the special of the day/week and I’m pretty sure I’m going to be hooked going forward. Come to my surprise, the owner of this place is also the owner of my favorite restaurant in Philly, Entreé BYOB. So it makes since why I loved my experience at Mari BYO. I highly recommend it and will be visiting again very soon and and very often!
