    What a wonderful experience! We sat at a high top near the bar and the amazing bartender (nice looking and very kind blonde woman and sorry to say I didn’t catch her name) took such great care of us! She made our night even more fun. Drinks were flowing and the appetizers were outstanding. Lots of flavor ! The pizzas are so delicious! Would highly recommend ! All in all a perfect night. Will definitely return.

    Absolutely horrendous service. Our waiter came to our table 5 times over 2.5 hours. We waited 20 minutes for someone to help us originally. Our waiter was very creepy and had a weird demeanor.

    We went early for Valentine’s Day. We’re not crowded yet. Everything was outstanding. First time there and regret nothing. The value was good for the quality of the food. I don’t mind paying for something that there is no way I could do on my own.

    We really enjoyed this restaurant and will probably come back. We felt like the entrees we got were good, but not quite as good as expected. The scallops were cooked perfectly, but the risotto was lacking flavor - specifically the butternut squash flavor. It tasted more like a cheese risotto. The cannelloni were good as well, but also fell just a little short of expectations. The Branzino Ceviche was delicious and balanced, we loved this and would 100% recommend. The mixed drinks we got, Omertà and Huckleberry spritz were also very very good. Overall a good experience, would love to come back and try other dishes. Service was very good overall, the food runners were very professional and fit the atmosphere of the restaurant.

    Loud and vibrant. Nice menu options. Wine list is a little iffy in the $50-65 range. Bartenders are hit or miss on martinis but otherwise good.

    I took my husband here for his bday dinner. People that were seated after us were eating and being serviced before us. We saw our waiter maybe twice and we kept having to call the managers over to receive anything. Once we received our food my husband said his meal did taste good but didn’t want to come back due to the horrible service.

    For the second time I made a reservation for a birthday, and for the second time no decoration or a small gesture or a free dessert like most of the same standard restaurants do. The hostess was rude and entittled wanted to give us a table in the private room in the corner, where we punished? i told her we want to be in the main dining room, she said it's all booked but there were just 2 tables occupied, so i said there's plenty free, she insisted that it's on the first come first serve reservations, so i said perfect we're first come so we get to pick the table. It was totally obnoxious to be treated this way while she has neither the appareance nor the behavior of a hostess. The hostesses that were before her were just adorables big smile on their face and well dressed. Since the change of the menu, the quality of certains dishes went really down. I love Mare and wanted it to be the same as when they opened, unique excellent quality and impecable service. Not the case anymore unfortunately

    The new Mare Mediterranean restaurant is top notch! Their food and wine is delicious. The seafood selections are amazing! The decision to add a pizza oven was a fantastic idea! The pizzas are wonderfully delicious! Even ordered one to go! Our server Courtney really made our evening extra special. She is excellent! Will definitely return. Prices are better now and the food/drink quality were not compromised. All in all a great dining experience.

    We went to a 2:00 matinee at the Fisher Theater, and wanted to have an early dinner afterwards. We had never been to MM, but had read good things about it. We found parking across the street, which turned out to be free, and were seated promptly. A young man brought us a basket of bread which we did not request, but which we were charged for - that was not right, but we did not dispute the charge. The room and the general ambience were very pleasant. The food - I had the pasta special, my wife had the fish special - was excellent! Our waiter was a bit in love with his own sense of humor, but was tolerable. If we come back, I’d hope to be served by someone else, though, so we don’t have to listen to his shtick again. All in all, a very good dinner experience. We’ll probably return.

    Meals tasted good and were plentiful. The waiter was pushy, however, and was eager to push additional items. The dining area was okay-- not quite nice enough to justify the price point.

    We had to take a 4 place high-top table in the bar area when 2 of our party had to cancel, but as the evening went along there was plenty of room to have seated us in the dining room. Things started out on a good note with drinks and excellent apps--especially the octopus and Arancini, but after a long wait for entrees we were told our dinner order had been lost (again: the kitchen was not busy). When dinner finally arrived, it was sub-par: a bland fish special, Paella with mussels that smelled of barnyard, clams too tiny to be worth the effort, and a bland broth. The restaurant did comp our dessert, but overall--apart from the company--the evening wasn't worth the coin.

    Underwhelmed by the food. The paella was seafood on rice. It was noted to be one of their most popular dishes and a "good choice" by our server, who was wonderful and attentive. Not so much and not again.
