    Very good

    Overall our experience at Marea was very good. My wife and I started with sharing the shishito peppers, the Astice (lobster) antipasti, and Granchio (peekytoe crab) antipasti. All very light but excellent. For our main courses we decided to share two pasta dishes: the Fusilli with octopus and bone marrow and the Garganelli with bolognese and parmigiano-reggiano. Both pastas were fantastic. Full disclosure: I do tend to fall in the category of a typical gluttonous American over-eater so I was still a little hungry at the end, but my wife was more than satiated with the amount of food. We both agreed wholeheartedly on the quality and amazingly flavorful and inventive food, the very good service, and the refined atmosphere. Be prepared to spend some dough, though :)

    Poor service/Great food

    My title says it all, by far the poorest service I have ever experienced, anywhere! The waiter was in such a rush, he almost toppled my wine glass to fill my glass with water and when I needed more water, I had to ask the sommelier to get me some! And they barely spoke english, which was even more annoying. That said, the food was good, not worth the $$ but good food if you can afford it.

    Too much hype, too little food!

    Making reservations 30 days in advance, to come to this restaurant for a very romantic valentines day dinner w my husband. Boy were we disappointed. The food did not live up to our expectations, to say the least. The octopus appetizer with noodles, noodles were undercooked. My husband had steak which was consistency of rubber. The presentation was nice, but food was unappetizing. For the price, you would imagine the food would be amazing, it was very very far from amazing. I wouldn't go here again, nor would i recommended you do. The only up side to the restaurant that we were sitting next to Jay Z and Beyonce.

    Something special

    All the negative reviews about service must be coming from waiters from other restaurants that dont want the competition. The waitstaff and bartenders at Marea were excellent. Between 6 of us, we sampled many dishes, all of which were fantastic. The portions are big and cooked properly. We all walked out with smiles from ear to ear. So, dont listen to the haters.

    Good Food; Poor Service

    I expected a lot after reading the rave reviews and the food reached my expectations. The pacific snapper crudi was very good and fresh as was the lobster antipasto. However, I did not care for the sea urchin spaghetti and am not quite sure why others raved about it. On another note, the service was pretty bad. Nobody appeared at our table to even give us a menu until at least 10 to 15 minutes, which I think is unacceptable. All someone needed to do was hand us a menu. In addition, upon arrival at the restaurant, we felt very unwelcomed by the reception staff. There is more to be said about the lack of service, but in a nutshell, customer service is lacking here.

    Excellence not Perfection

    Michael White, chef partner has another winner. The atmosphere is modern, artsy, pure Milan. The sevice is inteklligent and attentive without being over the top and all over you. Tried several courses - each fresh well cooked and attractive. The pastas are over the top - the best I have had in NYC. Skate was a small portion but very well prepared. Desserts were only OK and we were told that the chef had recently left. Clear *** ( not ****) experience. Pricey but not crazy.
