Food is basically good but it is a little salty. They are specialized in octopus food. Don't miss it.

"Our group was somewhat disappointed, given the expectations and Michelin rating. Perhaps our 9:00 PM seating was past their prime. The service was average and unattentive, but helpful when asked. The Dover Sole was plated well but had a fishy smell, suggesting it may not have been fresh. The octopus had good flavor but was not as tender as expected. I may have been an "off night," but it's unlikely we will return, given many alternatives in the area."

"I went to Marea to celebrate with my son's friends. Everything was excellent, from starters to dessert. Service was impeccable as always."

"Exceptional from start to finish, a simple amuse buche of bacala on toast followed by perfecly crisp white asparagus on a bed of roasted pine nuts and fresh ricotta, zuppa with shrimp in a creamy blend of peppers and almond. A house made tagliolini had just enough spice to enhance the clams. Entrees included seared scallops with pancetta over a delightful puree of fava beans which was highly flavorful. The halibut, while cooked to the right texture, was lacking in flavor and bland. The final dessert course included a basket of bombe- similiar to puffed and sugared Italian zeppoli served with white and dark chocolate sauces. The semifreddo with hazelnuts was cheerful, fresh and perfect; and of course--- the complimentary finishing touch of housemade jellies and chocolate confections left us ready for the next experience."

"This was our 3rd dinner at Morea. We live near the restaurant and wish it was better. I believe that it has a Michelin 2 Star rating but I do not believe that the level of service and the flavor of the food warrants this rating. It's not bad, but in my opinion, it's a 1 star - at best."

"Marea was very good but not quite wow. My wife and ordered from the pre-fixed menu which is the way to go. Of the 4 courses (we had separate selections) we each 3 were very good and 1 was wow. We have been to similarly priced restaurants where every course was amazing and Marea was close but not quite there. While the restaurant was extremely busy we never felt rushed and our server was attentive during our 2 hours there. Overall a very good experience - very good food, great service and excellent ambiance."
