    Super good service with the team, starting with the waiter to his support staff. Food brought out properly and dishes also cleared very promptly. Food was delicious with lots of menu options. Definitely little pricey . We will return again for sure. We are thankful to have such a unique restaurant.

    Great service from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave. And even more amazing food. Left my phone there and the owner/general manager took it home with him and held on to it for me. Super nice guy.

    This is our second time here in a month. It was so fantastic! Our server Mason was super nice, friendly, helpful and took his time showing us all the fish we could choose from. We liked the option of being able to select the seafood and have it prepared to our liking and brought to the table side. The cocktail menu is fun and interesting and the wine list is really good. The vibe in the restaurant is super cool, more like NYC. We will return.

    Mare was amazing! From the posh European flare to our amazing waiter, Mitchell (Mitchell George if he’s in trouble so we’re told😊), the entire staff was purely- AMAZING! The owner,Nino(a fellow Italian) came to inquire about our experience and spent a great deal of time to talk with us. He and his wife are very “hands on” with this restaurant (they own 2 in the area) and have created a classy, posh , elegant dining experience. The food- I don’t think I can find words! I’ll use again….. AMAZING! The price points were what you’d expect from a fish market(fish flown in daily) but the serving sizes were on the large size. The flavors- simply perfect! My husband and I travel an exuberant amount and have the opportunity to experience so many top notch restaurants and this one stands out- right here at home😊 We will be back to visit our new found favorite very soon, please take my advice and try this place. It does NOT disappoint!!! Thank you Mare!

    We had an excellent meal. The food was very high quality and they accommodated to some special requests, modifying a dish that was a special to meet our preferences (many restaurants wouldn't have done that). Service was very friendly and spot on. If you are looking for quality seafood in Birmingham this is your spot.

    The seafood is very fresh. Unfortunately, have to order a whole fish for most preparations, so better if people want to share an entree. Would have tried the fish if I went with more people. Instead had a pasta and seafood dish designed for one. Pasta dish was excellent.

Our waitress checked on us throughout the course of the night and made our dining experience exceptional. The ambience was gorgeous. The food and dessert was out of this world. We will definitely be back!

    This was my second time here. Figured I’d give it another chance..and I just don’t get it? Service was good. Drinks were good. Food is just ok..and it’s severely overpriced. Like severely. And it’s so loud that you have to yell across the table for your party to hear you. Sorry, but I just didn’t really enjoy it.

    Tried the Scorpion fish in the nightly selection, and am now a fan! Paired with the octopus appetizer, a great wine list for choices (and concluding with the bread pudding for dessert), it was a full evening of wonderful food. A special thank you as well to our superb server, Mitchell.

    Mare was the perfect venue for our special occasion dinner with 6 friends! The wait staff provided impeccable and friendly service and gave helpful recommendations for appetizer and dinner choices—as there were so many amazing seafood choices that it was hard to decide. The food was amazing as well—Beef Carpaccio and Fish of the Day! The owner also stopped by our table twice to check on us and was extremely friendly and personable. We will come back!
