On indefinite replay! Been going for years and not lost its touch, spark, and high caliber. For what it is, and what it offers its a quiet low key spot across from the park. Love the location and popping by for a casual meal at the bar. Service on or off the bar is incredible and discrete, as it should be. Bar offers a lively spot, yet still somehow manages to be private. Had remarkable unforgettable personal moments in time right there, which makes the place even more special for me. Menu is impeccably curated; you can't go wrong ordering. Wine and cocktails are lovely; ask for pairing suggestions, it has helped me discover new wines instead of always ordering the same. Perfect spot for dates, friends, celebrations... or simply a low key weeknight meal. Enjoy!
Michelin is pretty good at rating three star restaurants. The company has serious problems rating one and two star restaurants. The one star and two star restaurants are all over the board. During out trips to NYC, we have often passed by Marea. We never bothered to try the place because it seemed like a tourist trap. In August we decided to try the place because we noticed the restaurant had a Michelin two star rating. The food is passable and I will comment no further on the food. This review is to point out the perils of Michelin ratings at the one and two star levels. Personally, I would not even be able to give this place a Michelin one star. So it amazes me that Michelin would award them with two stars. I have provided reviews on the three top restaurants in New York under Chef's Table, Per Se and Eleven Madison. These are the jewels of great dining. And yes, each of them are three star Michelin restaurants.
After spending five weeks in NYC, I can confidently say that Marea is the best Italian restaurant in NYC. They offer handmade pastas, oysters, caviar, grilled meats, fish dishes, and memorable desserts. During the holidays, they offer prix fixe menus that are portioned well. I highly recommend making a reservation 30 days in advance. The customer service is outstanding.
This was the most expensive meal I have ever had and it was worth every penny. Everything was delicious. The pasta dishes were particularly impressive. The service was impeccable. Everyone was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I do normally prefer a single dedicated waiter (for a more personal experience), but I suppose they have to share responsibilities in order to maintain such high standards across the many tables.
Cozy, bustling atmosphere. Sophisticated crowd, both business dinners and friend/family gatherings. Professional, knowledgeable, friendly service. Seafood heavy Italian food is delicious and offers options for all palates. Great wine list with wonderful Italian selections. Clearly many regulars... for a reason.
