What Insiders Are Saying
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.
This is a place we go to celebrate. It is pricey and so we save it for such occasions. It is part of the chain that includes Ai Fiori, Morini and some others. Food is good. Service is great. Wines are too pricey, unfortunately. But we do have a great time here. So save it for that special occasion.
Diner with my son while visiting New York. My favorite restaurant
Darlene was impeccable with her service and extremely knowledgeable of the menu and made excellent recommendations. We enjoyed every bite and look forward to our next meal at Marea on our next visit of the city.
Absolutely amazing experience
Wonderful in all aspects.
Had a great experience.
Staffs were fantastic as well as food we had.
Amazing lunch spot. The food and service were incredible. Can’t wait to go back.
Manager sat us at a terrible table (twice) even though restaurant was nearly empty. Then, when water dripped twice on one of our heads and we informed the waiter, no one came to inquire whether everything was ok. Service was inattentive. For a more than $300 lunch for three people, I would expect more.
Excellent as usual. Octopus, Astice, Striped Bass, Tagliata, fusilli. All on point. Service was excellent as always. Thank you Chef White!
Excelente comida y servicio! Delicioso el fusili con octopus
The service is fantastic!
My new favorite italian spot in NY now. They made us feel very special for our 8 year anniversary and also recommended very good everything. The ravioli was excellent!
Marea is consistently outstanding -- outstanding seafood and wine, with near-perfect service.
Atmosphere was great. Food was fantastic. Would highly recommend!
First time I enjoyed gnocchi since I been back from italy
Absolutely stellar. Fresh seasonal ingredients and service that is second to none.
Everything was perfect from start to finish Karol and Antonio were amazing! they really made my night special.
Great food! Love its grilled octopus!!
Eating here is a luxury experience. The menu is full of inspired, original creations. We had the four-course meal and each course was excellent - fresh, premium ingredients that were perfectly prepared. There were also surprise samplings of various items interspersed between the courses. Service was outstanding as well - not only was the waiter an attentive guide but there was a whole team of people assisting with such things as choice of drink, choice of bread, and laying out/cleaning up of plates.
Excellent seafood and excellent service. Expensive, but worth it.
Another wonderful evening at Marea. The food is amazing, the service is perfect and professional, and the ambiance is stunning. This is one of New York’s finest restaurants and a great place to celebrate a special occasion.
Exceptional service combined with creative and delicious seafood and pasta. Desserts are also standout. Good wine list with great glasses, although on the pricey side.
The left side of the dining room is quieter and has a more serene atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Delicious octopus and excellent service
Best meal ever. Great service.
Wonder dinner. Truly exceptional service. Tasting menu was worth every dollar. Highly recommend for a special night out.
Without any motivation. We are normal customer
Food was ok service and presentation excellent great service
I had a work meeting here, everyone was super nice and attentive. The food was great but a bit pricy for the portion and what it is.
Food terribly salty, almost inedible.- all dishes. We expected more for 5 persons at $1000.
This restaurant embodies class from the moment you walk. Great elegant bar, warm welcome. Tasteful decor accompanied by top notch service and high quality food makes a special occasion truely special.
One of the better lunch spots in the Columbus Circle area.
Awesome meal at Marea. The location and venue is outstanding and the food is top quality. It is somewhat expensive but overall a great meal and would highly recommend.
Very nice restaurant. Tasty.
Delicious. Simply amazing. Wonderful food with lovingly working people in what they do. Very good wine list. Quiet. Good for dinner for two.
My wife and I were looking forward to a 2-star experience at Marea. We had the 4-course tasting menu and were simply disappointed. Salad was ordinary, Pasta was served barely warm, Halibut was over-cooked and lacked flavor. The service team were professional, engaging and attentive. The atmosphere was pleasing but we came for a food experience. Unfortunately this experience fell well below what should be expected from a Michelin rated restaurant.
Excellent as always!
The lobster appetizer was perfect as were the scallops along they were few for the price. Drinks were well made and delicious
Made room for us at the bar to accommodate showing up early.
Bartender provided exceptional service.
