Superb Italian Seafood on South Central Park

We've dined at Marea twice, most recently over the holidays. I highly recommend asking for chef's menu, where chef selects the dishes for you. Trust chef and have a truly incredible dining experience.

My daughter and I joined my partner and 3 business colleagues for an early dinner here last night. Great location right opposite Central Park, it really is a beautiful restaurant. I didn't expect it to be so busy early evening but it's obviously a popular choice. The food was absolutely amazing, little flavour explosions in the mouth. Not sure how... More

Just had a very poor experience at a Michelin starred, relaix et chateaux restaurant. Arrived five minutes late and was told our table was not ready yet. Not escorted to the bar to wait, nor was this suggested. We waited at reception which was in the middle of other patrons leaving and service staff moving about. Not welcoming feeling at... More

We booked a reservation after not being able to get a table when walking in the evening before, and looked forward to our dinner here all day. The décor is excellent, and the greeting by the hosts was welcoming. Once we were seated, we requested a wine menu, and were certainly shocked by the ridiculous price points. We dined in... More

Marea in Manhattan is really very good. This is an Italian seafood restaurant listed in the Where Chef’s Eat book, and I can see why. The fish I got was perfectly prepared and had a really interesting sauce. Portion sizes were neither too big nor too small. The bread is fantastic. The beer and wine choices are excellent and service... More

I had a pleasure to visit this restaurant for a business lunch. The menu choices were simply excellent and I'm definitely coming back there to experience a variety of a regular menu. The restaurant has a great location right next to the Central Park and Columbus Circle. If you are in the area and love great sea food then definitely... More

Marea is one of my favorite places to dine in New York. Impeccable service, great ambiance, amazing food. I love that Chef White is often present and approachable. The menu changes seasonally, but the Astice and Strozzapreti are must-haves. I would also recommend trying the crudos- they're all fresh and delicious.

I have to preface my statements with a little background. My husband and I travel often, in the US and beyond. When available we enjoy trying a least one Michelin starred restaurant...and have done so for years, and in Paris as recently as May of this year. My expectations were high, given that it is one of the top rated... More

I had dinner here with my husband, son, and his new girlfriend. It was the first time we met her so we wanted to have a special dinner. We met for drinks at the bar about a half hour before our 6.30 reservation. I ordered a daiquiri and was informed that "we don't do blender drinks here." If I had... More

I visited with my son, the food was fantastic!! We had the Zuppa soup with Zuchini, the Bass fish, the Pork ravioli and the Bombolini (some small doughnuts with lemon cream). Mmmm I think I'm coming back, even if the waitress was a little obnoxious!!

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.
