Wonderful food, wine, ambiance, and service!

Marea, as the name implies is an Italian seafood place. The restaurant is elegant and the tables are thoughtfully spaced, not crammed in like so many places in Manhattan.

This restaurant is right on Central Park South, a great location. We were somewhat early and decided to have drinks at their bar. They have a great selection of single malts and we certainly got to taste a few of them. Once our table was ready we wanted to take our drinks along but the waitress insisted that she would... More

I consider myself a foodie but rarely write reviews ,but this was one of the fines to meals I've ever had. Recommend the 4 course option. Crudos spectacular the lobster burratta is crazy. The wild boar pasta is to die for and my Branzini was most delicious and moist fish I've ever had and I eat a lot of fish

I loved this bar. We went for a glass of Prosecco during our first day in New York. Trying to fight the Jetlag - this was a nice bar to kill a couple of hours. Great service - thank You😀

Had a wonderful meal with my family. Try the house made pasta with bone marrow and octopus! Great wine list. We enjoyed an obscure Italian red. Beautiful decor. Expensive but oh so very good. Service was outstanding!

Had dinner here with two foodie colleagues/friends. We chose the restaurant for its Italian style kitchen and large sea(food) selection and were not disappointed. On top of that a massive and very interesting wine menu with real Italian gems. The pasta with boar and cabbage was totally different than expected, not dark and deep but in a funny way light...

This was one of the finest meals we have enjoyed. The ambience is casually elegant, the noise level is moderate-we easily carried on a conversation at our table of three, the food was beautifully presented, every dish was excellent and the wine pairings were perfect. We would definitely return on our next trip to NYC.

Everything a 5 star restaurant should be - exquisite food, superb service and even excellent acoustics. We were a party of 7 seated at a large round table and were able to not only enjoy the food, but also each other's conversation! A definite keeper but expect to pay 5 star NYC prices.

Very disappointed in the way this restaurant is going down. I have great memories of it in the past. This is just the shell of a once spectacular spot. Cold dishes and rude service made for a poor experience. And given the price tag. it is not justified coming back. Sorry.

Last Saturday the family went for dinner before a show and we were very disappointed. The place is nice but the food was not at all top notch. The salads were old and boring, the pasta was served cold and had to be returned, the fish was overcooked and the side dish was brought to the table when I was... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
