What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation

Marea is about as good as upscale eating gets in Midtown, and there’s a lot of that around. Don’t miss the bone marrow and octopus fusilli.

Food was just as good as the first time around, but service was almost too relaxed, almost inattentive.

Food is always fantastic, best octopus in NYC. Appreciated being seated in the back, away from other conversations. Thanks. Only drawback, waitress seemed inconvenienced when asked questions. Price fix well worth the $144 per.

Service was impeccable as you might expect. Dinner was delicious. I went with the four course prix fixe so I could enjoy more food. Soft shell crab had a light crisp texture but soft and juicy on the inside. Half order of signature pasta dish - fusilli with red wine braised octopus and bone marrow was rich but not heavy. Sea bass was perfect texture- delicious seer on one side. My wife also really enjoyed her lobster with burrata and tomatoes to start and said her seared sea scallops with mussels was perfect. Had to try the ricotta donuts- served warm and delicious with cream and strawberry sauces to dip. I had forgotten I indicated on the reservation that it was our anniversary. To our surprise came a wonderful dessert plate with chocolate, meringue and sorbet with a special anniversary note on a piece of chocolate. Will definitely go back to further explore the menu.

El servicio malo, la comida bien, nada extraordinario. Mucha gente, ruidoso. No regresaría, sólo es porque está de moda.
La carta de vinos ofrece solo vinos muy caros, los de precio moderado son 5 veces su precio regular.
No regresaría.

It was our favorite spot until they brought us a raw piece of fish two weeks ago. We decided to come back but I had another raw piece of fish for my lunch. In the end, my husband’s card was double charged by a mistake of our waiter. We are really disappointed and, unfortunately, we won’t be back. Sorry but it doesn’t feel like a service and food of a two Michelin star restaurant.

My wife and I went here for my birthday and it was excellent. Everything we had was so delicious. We tried several of the pastas which were an experience in it of itself, and followed them up with the branzino for two. We loved everything about this place and were fully committed to pony up the $$$. Highly recommend this place to anyone interested in eating some of the tastiest cuisine that NYC has to offer.

Very interesting place great place, I was excited to taste the famous Fusilli with Octopus And bone marrow...pasta al dente great... they use baby octopus instead octopus, the sauce tasting but full of butter, this was the only downside of the evening.

Was really looking forward to a late lunch before early evening theater. Ambiance is lovely and very sleek, noise levels acceptable. Unfortunately the health dept paid a surprise visit late afternoon and the kitchen was closed before the main dishes were prepared and never reopened. Staff were very gracious and comped the appetizers (snapper with rhubarb was delicious, crab salads light and lovely) accompanied by great bread. Also finished an excellent bottle of white burgundy. Disappointed we weren’t able to finish but hope to return soon.

Don't expect to get seated at your reservation time as they make everyone wait 15-30 minutes. The service is really attentive and the food is outstanding - the pastas were incredible. The place has a lot of hype and is not inexpensive but the food is definitely worth going in for.
