What a lovely restaurant. Carefully prepared food, mainly fish. Beautifully presented and service excellent. We went three times on our recent visit to NYC and were delighted to once again visit Marea. It has an added bonus of being open later than most near Lincoln...More

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...More
