Mari is one of my new favorite places. They keep the menu focused and they do it well- fresh seafood and delicious pasta. Each dish is crafted so well, with complimenting flavors and textures. The appetizers are not too heavy, the entrees are incredibly satisfying, and the deserts are decadent in flavor but light in texture, making them a perfect way to finish your dining experience.
So far I’ve tried the stuffed zucchini blossoms, calamari, frutti di mare, octopus, cioppino, limoncello merengue cake, and pistachio tiramisu...and I’d order every single item again.
Service is always wonderful, and open kitchen allows you to watch the chefs do their thing. BYOB and reasonable prices are the cherry on top. 10 stars for Mari! So glad this gem popped up in my neighborhood.
Excellent Mediterranean style dishes, great service . Highly recommend!
Our party of 4 was very pleased with our dinner experience at Mari. We all did the price fixe. We would definitely return.
Food and service was great! I will recommend to others and will definitely be back.
The food here is amazing! You should definitely go try it. Also, the service was on point and super friendly. Highly recommended!
Tried Mari as a last minute dinner. Loved the former occupant Dmitri’s for sound, flavorful and good value dinners. Mari fits the same bill. Although a different slant on Mediterranean cuisine, the food was plentiful, tasty and a good value. The crab and linguini was delicious and plentiful with soft shells, blue crab and pomodira sauce. The Caesar salad was good and the calamari app was prepared perfect and not the usual over breaded apps. My seafood over pasta was awesome.
The prix fix if $40 includes any app, enter and dessert is a deal with a byob. Can’t go wrong here and will be back.
Only downside is the inside is small and the sidewalk dining isn’t the best but worth the trek!
Wonderful time and service here! Great food as well and can’t wait to come back
The Pasta Nero was delicious! We always enjoy ourselves at Mari.
What a treat! Mari is compact, fresh, and simply delicious. The menu is simple but you can’t miss with anything that you chose. We chose the prefixed menu (three for $40! Such a value and worth every penny!) Every dish we had was bursting with flavor and the presentation was beautiful. It was little bit noisy due to the kitchen being on the outside, but I suppose that lent to the vibe of the restaurant. If they were able to have an indoor/outdoor situation it would be perfect! It’s also BYO, so don’t forget to bring your favorite wine to accompany your dish. We’ll be back!
Loved everything about Mari
Amazing seafood dishes everything was DELICIOUS
The food was amazing for the main dishes. I was a bit disappointed with the calamari, spices were good but it was too over cooked. The service wasn’t anything special, we had two servers and one was a bit pushy with ordering but I think that was due to the time limit on the table with covid restrictions. Either way we had an amazing time. They accommodated a table of 8 which is hard to find right now. I will definitely be returning!
Another small jewel in Queen Village. Delicious fresh seafood Sicilian Style. BYO and cash only. Prix fixe is a great value.
One of worst food dining experiences in a while. Calamari was dry and chewy. Main course left a lot to be desired .
It was so pricey,food wasn’t good service was ok
Very good food overall. B
Overall experience was mediocre. Food was average at best an extremely slow service. Made reservation for inside, seated outside, which at first was fine because it was beautiful. The weather turned quickly as it got later in the evening. Only one heat lamp for all of the outdoor tables.
Must say we were disappointed after reading such wonderful reviews!!
Has some really good and creative seafood dishes, nice staff. If its warm enough try to get a table outside, the indoor dining area is very small and the acoustics are terrible, which makes it hard to understand even those at your table. 1 warning: it is cash only, but there is no mention of that on OT, Mari's website, Yelp, or the menu. Only "notice" is a small sign slightly larger than an index card taped to their front door.
Service was terrible — it took almost 3 hours to complete our dining experience. The server came by our table maybe 4 times total and seemed totally disinterested in providing service. The food was okay — nothing remarkable and my medium rare steak was well done. Won’t go back.
Great, small house restaurant, tasty food, good service
This was our second time at Mari. The food is consistently good. Last night unfortunately the service was not. Two servers covering indoor and outdoor diners. My entree was cold. I sent it back. The sous chef came over and served it. I saw that twice. The servers just couldn't keep up. Took a while for them to pick up our check.
Excellent food and service. They made a custom entree for my daughter and she loved it!
The food is delicious and the staff is always so pleasant! A must visit.
Mari is back! Great foo, wonderful service and a lovely evening to take advantage of the outdoor seating. Don't miss the scallops, and save room for dessert as all of them are great.
Great place been there a few times with no disappointments
Wonderful restaurant with amazing food and service. Almost want to keep it to myself.
We had never been but will definitely go back!! The food was amazing and you can tell lots of love was put into all the fresh ingredients and dishes. Love a good BYOB
Wonderful dinner at Mari. Innovative menu, great service and food was excellent .
The food was amazing, as always. Reasonably priced and decent sized portions too. The service was a little slow but it was a nice day and they were completely full.
The food was exceptional, and the service was excellent.
This was our 2nd meal at Mari. Every bite was an exquisite delight. Service was relaxed yet attentive. It was a chilly night and we sat outside so hard to judge ambiance and noise.
We did the pre fix meal. It was awesome! Great value
Beautiful experience beautiful people love the food great atmosphere ,Would recommend.
Very nice dinner, great food. Enjoyed and will be back.
Everything was great- service and food were really good. I will definitely return.
This restaurant isn't actually open, don't make a reservation! I found out by calling day of trying to confirm reservation and the number is disconnected so we went somewhere else. I got a call about 5/10 minutes before the reservation while already at the other restaurant with an employee from Mari Byo saying that they are closed but the chef has another restaurant.... a little to late for that. People shouldn't be able to make reservations if they are closed.
I showed up at the restaurant with my date this last Saturday at 7pm after I made the reservation on Open Table and the place was closed! Tried to call and nobody picked up. I left a VM asking for an explanation so maybe they will call. Luckily, there are other restaurants on S. 3rd Street in Philly, so my date and I went to Cry Baby.
Great food everything was a 10. Thanks FYI philly for making me aware of this place.
Amazing food and service!
Easily one of the best restaurants I’ve been to. Outstanding service. Kevin is the best!
