First and foremost, the food was delicious. The soft shell crab appetizer, artichoke pasta and scallop entree were perfection. The service was gracious and professional even though we probably lingered longer than we should have. They were very accommodating in seating us in a quiet corner as I explained there was a hearing impaired person in our party of six.

After a surprising and enjoyable visit to The Frick Collection, we were delighted with the equally surprising elegance and sophistication of dining at Marea. On the recommendation of my nephew's girlfriend Marea indulged us in excellent Italian seafood cuisine - small succulent dishes. In particular I loved the scallops and tuna. Highly recommended.

Dining perfection. The 4 course deal was great. From the crudo to the dessert it was an amazing experience. Stellar service and food that's better than the reviews.

It is a very popular and crowed restaurant. We were in on a rainy day, how the reception staffs collected and checked loads of rain soaked gears patiently and promptly was our first indication they know what they are doing. Decor is pleasant and the wait staff is very helpful in explaining and suggesting choices. Guests having pre-performance dinners received accelerated service. The food is exceptionally tasty, lobster salad, octopus, oyster, signatures pasta and desserts are up to our expectation of a two starred restaurant. We had a great meal and will return.

From start to finish just excellent...had 4 course menu...tuna tartare, veal ravioli and branzino (just ok because it was rather bland but good quality) and an excellent lavender dessert (just ask)...equally wonderful was the sirloin, perfectly prepared. Highly recommend.
