Marea, New York City Reviews

  • Best food I've ever had in a Michelin-starred restaurant. The service was excellent and unpretentious. The food was out of this world. Octopus and the lamb were fantastic. They are BYOB albeit the corkage fee is high. They also offer great ambiance and location.

  • I would give more stars if I could. Truly exceptional service throughout the evening and the food was consistently delicious. They live up to their Michelin star but without the pretense or snooty attitude. I can’t say enough great things about our evening here. Thank you to the staff for making our romantic dinner even more special and memorable!

  • A local landmark. If I lived a little closer, I would visit Marea at least once a week. They have lots of cool and tasty food items in their shop that are hard to find elsewhere, and their sandwiches from the deli are consistently great! I also recommend the three bean salad. Oh yeah, and a HUGE micro brew selection!

  • Good food but....not great. If I were blindfolded and served this food I would think myself at almost any random decent neighborhood Italian restaurant. I mean the place is pretty, and the ingredients are high quality but really I wouldn’t call this a destination restaurant. I had the “legendary” fusilli which is basically pasta with marinara and some pieces of well cooked octopus. Why is this a big deal? Am I missing something? I also tried a crudo dish, a very simple lobster appetizer and a sea scallop entree. I’m left underwhelmed. Save yourself some money.

  • Well deserved Michelin stars. It was my first experience at a Michelin restaurant and I had very high expectations. From the start, the service was impeccable. Everyone there had a very calm demeanor and went out of their way to meet your preferences. They knew we had to leave by a certain time, so they timed their dishes perfectly so that we'd get out exactly when I told them I had to leave by. Not only that, they made excellent recommendations after asking some questions about our tastes. Food was top notch and the portions were plenty. The steak there was really underrated - it was one of the best steaks I had, better than Peter Luger's. The fusili of course was an experience in itself. The last picture of the chocolate dessert was courtesy of the chef :) I am not sure when, but I would be definitely up to return here for a special event!
