The food looks nice and the pairings sound delicious: scallops and braised short ribs, grilled octopus and bacon... But bite after bite, we found ourselves disappointed; the seasonings were off on several dishes, especially the filet, and the flavor combinations never quite came together for us (with the exception being the home made sorbets).

We tried a seafood tower for the table, and the oysters and assorted seafood cocktails/ceviches were delicious. Clams could have been a lot fresher, so hopefully that's not a consistent issue. Some of the wine pairings for our tasting menu were late getting to to table, and service was slow overall. Really wanted to like this price and justify the $100 per person price tag, but can't say that I'd go back again when so many other places are doing the same concept.

They get bonus points for preparing a kids menu for our family party, and the location is definitely nice. A quick stop in the chic bar might be worth a visit if your in the area, but would recommend sampling some of the dishes before committing to a full tasting menu.

A last-minute reservation at Maritime Parc turned out to be THE BEST dinner I've had in years! I had the 4-course tasting menu; each bite literally made my taste buds dance! The 1st course-OUTSTANDING: fresh squid, Thai basil, bok choy, shiitake mushroom, shrimp broth, lime yogurt. The 2nd-UNFORGETTABLE: sea scallops, crispy pancetta, pea pudding, pea greens. The 3rd-DELICIOUS: pork tenderloin, crispy polenta cake, shallot jam, au poivre sauce. Dessert was NOT TO BE OUTDONE; I chose the watermelon granita, lime meringue, moscato d'asti. I was amazed at the talent behind the creation and presentation of each course. Can't wait to go back for Sunday brunch! BRAVO, CHEF SIVERSEN! BRAVO!

My son's wedding reception was here. The place is fantastic.
First the view of New York City is unreal... looking right at the Freedom Tower, Ellis Island, and The Statue of Liberty. Cocktail hour on the 3rd floor- huge windows, breezeway to a huge veranda. Drinks and appetizers were excellent (many different appetizers- the owner is the chef!! ). Plenty for everyone no waiting. Everyone was just floating around taking in the atmosphere and these were all new york, new jersey people so they dont impress easily. The reception was on the second floor. Floor to ceiling windows with the same view and as the sun set the city lights come up!!! The decor is modern and clean, not the typical ornate wedding type. Colored lights dress it up. The service and the food was top notch. We had a wonderful lobster cocktail and then either blackened cod or filet mignon. I had the filet and honestly rarely get an outstanding steak out, but this melted in your mouth. A group of us are going back for steak dinners soon. To be able to turn out that many superios steaks at a wedding is amazing. Other guessed raved about the cod. So great view, service and food!!! Try this place!!!

Indoor and outside seating. Unique seafood menu, food well prepared. Great views of New York and the marina. Worth the trip.
