The rest of the menu looked great and the special drinks were very good. The hostess was so lovely and accommodating; the staff really nice.

                                                            I love Marlow Bistro for the food, wine and ambiance. The service is warm and attentive. It’s one of my current favorite places to socialize. The outdoor dining setup is lovely and well spaced for the pandemic safety conscious.

                                                            Walked in and did not request vaccination card despite the mandate being lifted tomorrow (still in effect today). We were seated and provided water. When we decided on what to order, they did not have several items including pellegrino, sea bass or the entire pizza section "for a long time" yet did not provide any indication on the menu that any of these were unavailable. Waiter did not provide alternatives or recommendations. Moreover, a couple who had just walked in were immediately provided with drinks and bread. Did not feel welcome at all. Would not return or recommend- The customer service (or lack thereof) is horrendous.

                                                            The menu is too "meat-heavy". I got the striped bass which was fabulous and my companion got the mussels which he found disappointing. Too spicy, not enough sauce, french fries not crispy. This is a lovely restaurant which I would love to return to. Looking forward to a spring menu that might have more non-meat options.

                                                            The first time we went, the food was fantastic and the ambiance was beautiful. However, the service was slow. We made mention of it to the manager and he apologized profusely, and invited us back, which we were happy to do because the food was so exquisite. Seriously, it’s one of the best burratas I’ve had in the city. When we came back, the service was extraordinary. And the food, specifically the gnocchi and the meatballs, were out of this world. Cocktails are delicious as well. Overall, amazing dining experience, the ambiance is beautiful with the sprawling lighted branches overlying the whole ceiling and some of the best food I’ve had on the UWS. Definitely a must go.

All five of us were happy with our selections (and the choice of wines); these ranged from risotto, pastas and beyond, and included excellent vegetarian options. A delectable evening all around!

                                                            Gorgeous setting, lovely food and great service. Only downside was the very limited wine list which had some bottles in the $40-$50 range and some in the $120-$150 range with nothing in between. Our meal was very good but could have been great with better wine options.

                                                            Really nice neighborhood gem. Everything was good: Branzino, flatbread, octopus appetizer, fried artichoke app. Attentive but not intrusive service. Definitely a good experience.

                                                            The restaurant decor is beautiful, and service was excellent. Definitely a romantic vibe. However, the food was rather disappointing. The halibut was overcooked and the branzino was extremely fishy. Moreover, the pasta was cooked way too long, and any hint of al dente was absent. I

                                                            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!

                                                            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!

                                                            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.

                                                            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.
