Great food, friendly service, great wine list. It was snowing last night and got there late but we were still given a table. We have been there before and we will definitely go back. Very consistent!

Michelin doesn't grant its 2 stars for nothing. We have been to Marea previously, for dinner and left very content and impressed by the restaurant's high quality Italian cuisine. Now, we were pleasantly surprised to find out that Marea offers a great weekend bargain, what they call "PRANZO DEL FINE SETTIMANA" (weekend brunch), very budget-friendly priced at $57 for a choice of "primi" and "secondi". Considering the exclusive ranking of the restaurant and the prime Central Park/Columbus Circle location, it is a very good deal indeed.
A complimentary dessert dish of 'gourmandises' was a nice finishing touch to our meal.
The food was great, the presentation admirable, the service very good.
5 stars indeed, and definitely highly recommended.

our pastas took a very long in coming out after the oyster appetizers. We were then disappointed, as the venison entree came out cold. They gave us a complimentary glass of wine. The stalls in the ladies room were ALL stopped up. Not too happy about that either. All in all not sure how this place has two Michelin stars.

Everything is great at Marea, but the fusilli with baby octopus and marrow bone is simply one of the best dishes I’ve ever had!

Lunch at Marea was thoroughly enjoyable. The range of fresh seafood and the beautiful presentation were first rate. We sampled the tuna tartare, the lump crab appetizer, the gnocchi with shrimp and the scallops. Each dish was freshly and creatively prepared and beautifully presented. The staff was extremely friendly ad helpful. The view of the park across Central Park South was a bonus. My only reservation is that the wine list (although nicely broad and deep) was extremely pricey.
