We dined here twice in December 2014, the second time on Christmas Eve. Both experiences were excellent, and the food continued to wow us. Starters we savoured included scallops with black garlic sausage, yuzu and salsify, escargot with bacon and pomme puree, Parmesan soup with dumplings & matsutake mushroom tea and, of course, the great chilli lobster Texas toast.

My favorite restaurant in NY. I frequent many places, but Marc Forgione's restaurant is the best for many reasons. Marc is a multiple Iron Chef winner and a Michelin Chef. His food more than reflects his talent and he is constantly upping his game. The restaurant is welcoming and tastefully appointed. Marc is approachable and glad to mingle with his... More

Marc Forgione has easily become one of my favorite restaurants in New York City. This was my 6th visit and I swear it keeps getting better! If you preference is for a table, you better make your reservation in advance. Personally I prefer to eat at the bar. There are 2 large communal high top tables that are also available... More

We booked the day before via "open table" and considering the limited choices to get a table online surprised to find the place only 2/3 full. Menu is relatively limited but all our dishes were really delicious with some unusual but really well functioning combinations of ingredients. Dumplings and scallops to start, pork loin for mains and brulee and cheesecakes... More

Quaint restaurant in Tribeca. Went to brunch and enjoyed good food and good service. The bunch menu is limited and has some interesting plays on traditional brunch items.

I took my wife and we had a wonderful time. The cocktails, wine, food, decor, ambiance, and service all were exquisite (albeit expensive). It is in a very cool part of Manhattan - when you are finished head 2 blocks over to Ward III for after dinner drinks. We ordered the chicken under a brick with truffles and it was... More

Of all the places I've eaten in my life, Marc Forgione is definitely top 5 best meal. I've eaten everything on the menu, and it was all fantastic. The tartare appetizer is an experience in itself - I highly recommend it. The chicken for two dish is my favorite by far.

Our group of six each had wonderful meals and the service was great. Most of us had fish--the halibut was the best we've ever had. Forgione watches over every plate that goes out of the kitchen!

Well worth it's high rating. Great menu, great food, great service. A bit of a difficult wine list but we can work with that. Wonderful intimate atmosphere and decor. A treat in a great area of NYC.

I have to be on a very salt restricted diet which makes it difficult to eat out. We wanted to take our son to a really good NYC restaurant for his Birthday but my husband was concerned that I wouldn't be able to eat what was on the menu. He called the restaurant and asked if they could accommodate us... More
