Bar hours until midnight..
Wonderful beginning to end. Told them I was having a friend/biz meal....they could not have been more accommodating with the right amount of attention paid to us to impress my associate.
He was very happy to have come uptown from CPW for a “neighborhood” restaurant experience. As he remarked when we left, “this is what I miss about NYC when I stay in midtown”.
And this is exactly why I live on the UWS.
The best restaurant ever at this lovely corner spot across the street from St. John the Divine and near Columbia. Focused, interesting menu that will satisfy any food issues, including a desire for very good food that is locally and responsibly sourced. Wine/beer list better than that at larger places . Staff is very warm and very professional - a thin line to walk. Have been here several times, most recently for a reunion with a dear friend that lasted hours. Looking forward to returning.
Lovely, charming Italian restaurant on a quiet corner on the UWS. Beautiful outdoor seating. Menu was average in variety but the food was good and the ambience even better. I will be back.
This place is a gem, eating outside on a balmy late Spring evening looking at St. John the Divine cathedral corner, after strolling throughout its grounds. Super pleasant service and delectable food, it captures the ambiance of Morningside Heights.
Excellent place, normal size portions, servers are knowledgeable and courteous.
If you can eat foods exactly as they prepare them, then this is good food. If you have any dietary restrictions or needs, then go somewhere else. We were told tonight that the kitchen couldn’t even be asked about a special request varying the menu because they have a “house policy” against honoring such requests. Will be interesting to see if this attitude can survive a site and area that has seen significant turnover.
Our local favorite -- great for friends from other neighborhoods, and a nice spot for us mid-week.
Terrible!!! One person got served when others done and meat was cold and raw
Will NEVER go back!!
We booked because it’s near the Cathedral and were pleasantly surprised with it. Great ambiance and food. Great service too.
I have dined at Marlow many times. I've always enjoyed the food and the service is usually quite good. My most recent dinner there was consistent with my previous experiences.
Our two "rare" hamburgers were so raw, they squeezed out the sides of the bun when bitten.
The table water comes tepid, without ice.
The tiramisu resembled tiramisu in name only. My father would have joked that it probably sat next to a real tiramisu.
It was a perfect venue
Was a busy day and had difficulty getting seated/good service
Food was great and very fresh
Wonderful ambiance, excellent service, and --most important!--fabulous food!
We all had different dishes and they were quite spectacular!
We went for half-price wine night but they had canceled it. The halibut lacked flavor. Their portions don't match the price. I had been there a few times and the quality has gone down. I won't go back.
Octopus was exceptionally good although food in this Restsurant is 4-5 star. We were seated immediately in a nicely located table . I just wished that they have table cloths for dinner or during special occasion such as Mother’s Day ,Valentine’s Day etc .
Our waitress was very attentive and efficient ,Kudos to the chef.
It is an excellent Nieghbor restaurant
Love the food. Service needs to improve
Service was slow and indifferent. 20 mins to get water or menus. Host didn’t bring them right away even when asked - instead went to another table first. Service was slow generally, waitress forgot one persons food, etc.
The service is strange
Best risotto I've had outside Italy. Five of us ordered it and loved it! The half price night on bottles of wine made it all even better.
What a perfect neighborhood bistro. The families are there earlier in the evening, giving it a warm vibe, followed by the adults later around 8. Food is super great. Service is super great. Love the wine by the glass list. All in all, a delight.
Perfect food, perfect service!
Service was awful, we made a reservation at 830 for 4 people. We got there on time. The waiter said there were no tables available. the only table available was for 6 people and only for 6 people which we realized later was not true as only 2 people used the same table. Food was awful and the service the same.
Our new, go to neighborhood spot. Good food, nice atmosphere and reasonably priced.
Great date spot. Lovely atmosphere and well presented dishes. Not bad
My husband and I love Marlowe Bistro for every occasion -- from date night to a family birthday to a night out with friends. The food is delicious every time we go, and the menu is seasonal. The wait staff remembers us and our small children. This is a true neighborhood gem -- the best restaurant in the Columbia/Morningside Heights/Manhattan Valley neighborhood for sure.
Creative menu and excellent implementation. Our second meal here and will definitely return.
Simply and elegantly delicious. 1/2 price wine bottles a pleasant surprise. A last minute addition to our reserved table size was handled graciously in spite of packed dining room.
They were so rude from beginning to end. Terrible hostess experience- it was insane.
Really wonderful neighborhood spot for brunch! Low key, quiet, not hard to get a table on a weekend afternoon, and the brunch dishes are unique. Highly recommend the poached eggs on polenta with shaved brussels and bacon sauce. Good strong coffee, too.
They run a wonderful kitchen. Really the only drawback was the perplexing music that was unnecessary in this lively environment and which made it a little hard to have a conversation.
Fantastic tasting menu. Great price, awesome food
Great food, good service, but food is served far too fast (starter was barely finished and the main course was served already). Better order dishes separately (eat one first and order the other after that one), otherwise you won't have time to enjoy your wine and conversation! Staff was not very receptive to feedback.
Delicious food. Excellent warm atmosphere. Great friendly service.
The best bistro in New York. If you love true Italian kitchen and Pizza. You must try New York’s gem!
This is our third visit to the Bistro and we will keep coming back. Great locally sourced food very well prepared. It seems as if the chef has upped his game- it keeps getting better.
Delicious food, nice ambiance, but tiny portions and overpriced.
Fantastic meal -- loved the ambiance, the food was excellent, overall a stellar experience.
Hesitant to rave about this place because I would hate to see it become so popular that I can no longer get reservations easily... in truth I really love this place and it is now one of my upper west side favorites.
Went with a group and had a really nice meal in an area that seems to be developing. Had a strange experience with the bartender who did not want to make multiple drinks, so had a somewhat offputting start and were seated late. Once we were at a table though, it was a nice, cozy spot with good food.
