Not as good as we were expecting, we liked the appetizers, the bbq oysters and the Kampachi tartar were really good, the main dishes turned us down, specially the monkfish, which was very flat and dry, the deserts were good, the service was attentive but not up to the standard, they need to add some more fineness to it.

We booked for a special evening out on our recent trip to NYC. The service is excellent with attentive staff, bringing drinks, filing waters etc. We were pleased with our choices, oysters & truffle tortellini for starters, steak & pork porterhouse for mains and chocolate smores for desert (which we can still taste now!!). We thoroughly enjoyed each course and... More

My husband and I had a return visit this weekend to this restaurant. I have to start by saying the service as this place is like no other. The servers are attentive, the bus boys and helpers were always filling your glasses, or removing plates and you never saw your table dirty. Big ups to Myriam who has been our... More

My wife and I were looking for a fine dining experience and I came across Marc Forgione in a Zagat's articale and decided to try it out. We found the atmosphere rustic, warm and inviting. Bar and table service was efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. For appetizers we shared the Kampachi Tatare and after had the BBQ baked oysters. I highly... More

We lived in NYC for 5 years and this was our favorite brunch place. Marc Forgione is an Iron Chef and he deserved to be one! Definitely try the following: 1. Maple Glazed Sausage (side) 2. Batch 22 Bloody (drink) 3. Bacon Egg and Cheese 4. Brioche French Toast Can't wait to go back to NYC for another brunch.

We were a group of six people and we wanted to surprise my wife for her birthday. During the reservation process it was mentioned that we wanted to celebrate the birtday of one of the guests and we were reassured that a glass of champagne would be offered at the beginning of the dinner with some more extras of course...

I recently dined here and was absolutely blown away by the food in a very positive way. Definitely the best brussel sprout in the city! If available you must order! Our party was a large one therefore our meal was family style which allowed us to sample a few of their main plates. I would highly recommend the lobster and... More

My pick of restaurants near our hotel in Tribeca. I read about how good their chicken under a brick was...so I ordered it and wasn't disappointed. Service was polished and professional. Nice ambiance. All that you would want in a meal out. Highly recommended.

For our anniversary / new year celebration, we ate last night at Marc Forgione. Holy awesome, Batman. Kampachi tartare and Foie Gras (it was a special last night, not the standard) are delightful. They are a MUST. I had the fluke crudo and honestly it was in my top 5 fish dishes I've ever had. My boyfriend had the pork... More

We chose to celebrate our Anniversary here based on reviews and our desire to try someplace new. When we made the reservation they asked if this was a celebration and when we sat down at the table there was a letter waiting for us thanking us for coming and wishing us a Happy Anniversary. The waitress started by pouring us... More
