Very quaint restaurant. Initial seat was next to over a very unappetizing vent. Moved to new table which had nice ambience although the waiter forgot us, twice. Apologetic. Pizza oven was broken which was we went there for. Entrees and appetizers we ordered instead were very good however!
Delicious food and good service. Noise from fire trucks, ambulances and motorcycles was sometimes deafening.
Everything we ate was delicious, and the ambiance (lighting, decor and music) was exceptional
Only negative was that the Pizza Oven was out of service, which was a big bummer!
Absolutely fabulous food -every course
Marlow Bistro has been a favorite for years now. I’m so glad they’re open again after taking a responsible pause during covid - the food is as delicious as ever, they revamped the inside (same beautiful relaxed vibe, but they added flowers all over the room, and new pillows on the banquets), service is so friendly, wine list is awesome, drinks are creative and delish… in short, it’s the perfect place to share a wonderful night with friends, a date, family visiting the city. The hospitality overflows. I’m so thankful they’re here!
Already thinking about the next trip. Definitely get the Rib Eye for main course ! Great service
Good food, but overpriced and small portions. The service was amazing and we loved our waiter, however the rats were a problem and kept running around by our feet. Because of that I probably wouldn't recommend this restaurant. If you do eat here, I recommend sitting inside instead of outside to avoid the rats.
Waiter was great, food was good and came in time, we ate outdoors which we wanted to do but it was noisy. Overall would recommend it.
Excellent food and excellent service!
We will be back and will bring friends!
One of the best outdoor setups in NYC, it is so welcoming and inviting. The staff is so friendly that will make you feel you dine in Europe. Highly recommended.
it's always a great dinner experience, praised there tartar and old fashioned before ! a gem in the neighborhood.
Marlow Tavern did not honor an Open Table reservation for lunch because they booked a private party for the entire space. They should have blocked reservations for the relevant time. At the very least, they should have offered to comp wine or dessert on a return visit. They lost my good will and I will not return.
Everything was just perfect!!!
That’s the second time I ‘ve been to Millows however, I was really hoping not to find the same rude staff working there as before. Well, turns out it didn’t happen, to be honest, was even worse then the first time, so I assumed this is Millow’s standard service quality.
I simply don’t understand why they kept pushing us to finish our lunch and get out of there so badly. The place was quite empty, with a few available tables yet and wasn’t closing time because guests here and there kept showing up. We just finished lunch, and the grouchy waiter put the bill on our table then return to pick up the folder and when he realized that we weren’t ready his reaction was even more unpleasant. He didn’t even offer a dessert menu, and we wanted dessert.
Of course, I am not stupid to go back for the third time to this place, but at least maybe through this review I can spare someone else’s time.
Lovely space with gracious host and staff. Tasty farm to table options and an extensive wine list. Good choice for families, foodies and anyone who appreciates food prepared with care with the freshest ingredients.
We had a rough start as the waiter didn’t come over for 45 minutes. Once we got the manager attention they recovered.
Very good meal. Decided to give it 5 stars (4.5 wasn’t an option) due to the quality of the food (and coffee) to be absolutely superb. I truly enjoyed the simplicity and perfectly balanced dishes we ordered.
Only issue, which really wasn’t an issue was the Brunch Menu was different than what is posted online (menu said Fall 2019).
Duck appetizer was good. Lobster pasta entree was a small serving and was disappointing in flavor and texture. Service was very disappointing. My husband's pizza came out before my entree and he was half way done before my entree came out. My dessert menu arrived with a piece of tomato on it. Server just didn't seem engaged.
A fabulous experience with delicious food and a warm and friendly staff. We will definitely go back.
Our favorite restaurant in the neighborhood. Solid food choices, excellent cocktails, nice atmosphere. Our neighborhood "go to".
Great time! Met with a friend. Food on point, service on point, drinks delicious. Would definitely come back.
Arrived with my 9-yr-old, and she deemed the pizza the best ever! When I go to Marlow, I feel as though I’ve been welcomed home by my family. Everyone is warm and accommodating.
The staff were very nice. They mistakenly included meat on our vegetarian pizza but were mortified that they had done that and comped us on the pizza. The food was delicious and the setting is very nice. We sat outside.
Scallops dish, octupus dish were tasty and done well. Great balanced flavor cooked perfectly. Outdoor seating is nice with a view of the Cathedral.
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!
