Very nice and modern ambient Excellent menu. I suggest: fusilli with bone marrow and octoppus. I think the portions could be a little bigger!

Love this restaurant. All the food is so good. Good for special occasion or bring a guest from overseas there. It's always full so need to reserve early. I just wish the interior design is more unique.

Marea does not align well with Travel Advisor's rating system does not align well with Travel Advisor's rating system. It's five buttons are far more meaningful than a five rating for an intimate chef-owned ethnic restaurant in the East Village. Marea competes against expectations shared with the WORLD'S BEST. And it more than competes. Food is the centerpiece as it... More

We went there on our last trip to NYC and had a wonderful time. We took the lunch tasting special that was a 5 course meal for 80$ and loved every course. The food was great and the dining experience even better.

Having spend a month in New York eating at a range of restaurants this was our second last night. The food was up there with the best we have eaten to-date - perhaps anywhere in the world. The flavours were intense and delicious in every course - crudo through to dessert. The wine list is superb. The room is great.... More

The decor is well done but showy enough you might worry that the food is an after thought but it's not! Excellent and creative sea food with an Italian theme. A large selection of crudo and pasta many in original combinations as well as simply prepared whole fish. Lamb chops were also excellent. Portions are adequate, not large. Service excellent... More
