What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.8

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.

Ratings 8.5-9.0:Now we’re in the range of absolutely excellent restaurants that you might go to more than once a year/lifetime. These restaurants tend to define a city, and make up the places that you absolutely cannot miss if you want to have any credibility as a restaurant-informed person in a major metropolis.

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.

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.

パスタは絶品。とくにフジッリは美味しかった。デザートはアメリカ的な甘さだったので頼まなくてもよかったかなと思った。
前菜とパスタだけでも十分にお腹いっぱい楽しめる。

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.

We heard great thing about the place & made this high on our priority list during our holiday to NYC. Unfortunately, the good food was marred by less than ideal service, on a couple of instances.
Firstly, we were the 1st table to be seated for lunch. It took a good while for anyone to get us menus. Afterwhich it took a long while to get service to explain the menu. (Mind you there were barely 5 tables filled at the restaurant yet at this time)
Once we ordered, the waiter forgot to serve our glass of wine for an entire appetizer.
We were also having sparkling water, but the waiter mistakenly poured tap water into one of our glasses, without even realizing.
(This was a different waiter from the one who had forgotten our wine).
Overall, we felt quite neglected, and honestly, the food alone wouldn’t bring us back for a return visit to Marea when we’re in NYC, where good restaurants are aplenty.

Unfortunately customers are a necessity not something that is welcome and clearly is popular because of its location
It certainly doesn't deserve the accolades
