Went to Marea a few times. I do like the food and it's not far from where i live so it makes it easier when i crave for italian food and I am drawn to their lobster burrata. The waiter though sometimes has too much pride, 1 time i ordered a coffee(Cortado) and i can see she fringed and don't... More

Marea is a beautiful restaurant located on the prestigious and stunning Central Park South. The food is superb! It's innovative and divine...Chef White never ceases to amaze me. However upon arriving I was met by Sean Smith who was so snippy and rude that he reminded me of someone on Saturday Night Live imitating a snooty waiter! (He is in... More

My best friend and I went there to celebrate her birthday! The service, food, hosts and experience was great! I started off with the tuna tartare and ended the scallops which were cooked perfectly! Though my friend never eats dessert and I had given it up for Lent, our server was kind enough to bring out a small "semi-dessert" (small... More

A true "white table cloth" restaurant. Menu is interesting, creative and diverse. Food is delicious and attractively presented. Wine list is expensive - but good. Service was excellent.

If you're Italian and coming from Emilia Romagna, you can slightly reconnect to your places. The owner and chef spent quite a long period at San Domenico restaurant (Imola, Bologna), the touch is still perceivable. Crowded, high class, great service and, again, great food. This is not an Italian restaurant, nor want to be, but a place you cannot miss... More

We dined at this two star Michelin restaurant and enjoyed every bite. It was extremely expensive but worth every penny. You just don't get this quality of food very often. The service was absolutely impeccable. I had roasted monkfish with a delicious fennel sauce, savoury wild mushrooms, my wife had huge seared scallops and a side dish of wilted greens... More

Despite being at the service the eating area and the service was superb. The food was wonderful. We had several apps, mid meals, pastas and a fish.... More

An italian restaurant who doenst make a pasta al dente??? For me is a tourist trap. I dont know why michelin give a star to this central park restaurant. Do not waste your time (and money) in this restaurant.

Went to this restaurant with my husband. The food was good but not excellent. I felt the grilled octopus was a little overcooked. My husband had the halibut, very well cooked with delicate flavours. I went for the sea scallops which were well cooked but the taste was a little burnt and bitter. The highlight was the dessert, I had... More
