“Smooth sailing at the Marina”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

After Sandy The Marina was rebuilt. The restaurant is very light and inviting. The staff is wonderful and helpful. The menues are varied and extensive. The fish is fresh and the veal is tender and tasty. I believe it is better than before the storm. The great view adds to the dining experience.

“Welcome back Marina!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

We visited this place practically every week prior to Super storm Sandy, which completely devastated it. It has since had a complete make-over and we are happy to say it is back, better than ever!! the service is second to none, the view is spectacular, and the food...Oh the food,.is excellent as well! we love the restaurant and especially like the outdoor tiki bar/light menu during the season.

“A great place to go in Staten Island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

This restaurant was rebuilt after Super Storm Sandy. It has a great location with a nice look. This is what you want to see in New York. Lots of families and good food. This is 90% locals and feels great. The staff is great and they will make food the way you want it. Definitely worth a visit.

“Better than ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

Completely rebuilt after the terrible destruction wrought by Hurricane Sandy, the Marina Cafe is back. The setting is beautiful and the menu selections and specials have something for everyone. The eggplant spread provided with the bread basket is good enough to be an appetizer and a small jar of olive oil is also provided as an alternative. The entrees were uniformly good. The desserts make you sorry if you didn't leave room for them.
As of this writing if you go north about 2 blocks you will see a pile of boats wrecked during Sandy. These were strewn on the streets after the storm.

Marina Cafe, we are glad you are back!

“Marina's Back in Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I was happy to return to this long established restaurant which was shuttered for quite a long time due to Hurricane Sandy. The atmosphere and ambiance is soothing as you dine by the waterside. The service is competent and friendly. The chef offers a daily prix fixe menu for $25.00 with many tantalizing options.
