The staff is courteous and very professional. You will be extremely impressed with the service almost as much as the food. Needless to say the food is exquisite. I have been twice and got the Nova Scotia Lobster both times as well as the Scallops and was very happy. Highly recommend!

From start to end, it was one of the most professionally performed experiences I have had in Michelin Restaurants. 9 top motivated and top professonal employees were serving us, through a 3 hour meal....and they did perfet. Further the food had such a deep and intense taste, that I still sense it clearly now two months after. Their Pasta, is... More

Food is great (the fusili pasta with octopus and bone marrow is amazing). Service was also very good. Lunch prix-fixe is also great value for quality.

It is expensive, but worthwhile. The service is great and the menu super Italian. The server, Katherin, was attentive, delicate and floated around imperceptibly. Super. As starter, I had the "polipo crudo al taglio" - five small sashimi slices of octopus. The flavor was great, but for $17 I expected some more slices...ten, maybe. For main dish I ordered "fusili"...

Certainly lives up to its name as being a 2 star michelin restaurant! A friend and i had a late lunch at marea and we opted for their set lunches - a 2 course meal. Service was excellent and food exceptionally tasty! was a tad pricy but not exorbidant for a michelin restaurant! Only complaint was that we overheard the... More

The food at Marea is always outstanding. The seafood is of course excellent but the pasta could be the best I have had anywhere. They cook pasta to perfection and that isn't easy. Often it is either over or under-done. Not at Marea. Very good sommelier as well.

The food is exceptionally well prepared and presented. The dining room is stunning and the location is exceptional. It really was our best meal of the trip. The only thing keeping it from a five-star experience for us was the overall attitude of the team. From greeting at the front door to the absurd attitude copped by our waiter, this... More

I truly enjoyed the lunch and the food was great but I can't say that it was the best food ever. The choices are not typical and even somewhat extravagant. Portions are small but prices are not. The atmosphere is lovely and the staff is spectacular. While I would certainly go back, I don't know that it would be my... More

Had an early reservation (only time available), but we never felt rushed and enjoyed a relaxed, fabulous meal. We went with the prixe fixe menu, and had a wine pairing added. The food was superb (branzino especially), and all the wines worked perfectly. The wait staff was top notch: friendly but not familiar, very knowledgeable about all the food. A... More
