Go if you want to get sick.

I've eaten here and seen the kitchen. For these prices, you can get much better food at restaurants such as Jean Georges and Bouley. They are currently being sued by a woman who got horribly sick from the food, and I understand why. The raw meats, seafoods, and produce are kept and used well beyond what is appropriate for a restaurant of this level. It's disappointing - spend your money elsewhere!
Just not worth it

The service and the staff were attentive, and the drinks (both wines and spirits) left little to be desired. The decor is pleasant, bordering on elegant and has the feel of a private estate dining room, only larger. A friend and I both ordered the 5 course tasting menu ($105 per person). Of these, the only one that I really enjoyed was the home-made pasta, with pomegranate and cheese (which was really quite outstanding). Besides that the courses ranged from unremarkable (the sashimi, lobster and chocolate cake) to just plain unedible (the nearly raw squab). Overall, a decent dining experience at best. Considering the price tag that came with it (over $350 for two people, before tip), I just couldn't consider going back here. If you have money to blow and want to hob-nob with some upper east side blue bloods then maybe this is for you, if you are looking for good food go elsewhere.
Variety is the spice...

Dining experience at March was quite good. The menu is very flexible as you can select tasting menus of three to six courses (they'll probably do more if you ask). The portions are pretty sizable, so keep that in mind when ordering. The crowd at March is pretty interesting, as well. We had the most inter-table conversation there that I've ever experienced!
March will definitely march on!

March is truly one of the hidden gems of NYC restaurants. Located in a lovely townhouse, the kitchen turns out light, innovative, and most importantly, delicious food. The service was polite, professional, and close to perfect. For that special occasion or romantic meal, this restaurant will surely impress!
Romantic and Exquisite

The food, atmosphere and service at March's was fantastic!! We went two weekends prior to Christmas and even though they had a full pre-theater crowd (and a holiday party) we were treated fantastically. The wait staff never left our side, dishes were explained to the letter and the food was delectable. The seared scallops were perfect, both firm and succulent and the foie gras melted in my mouth. We weren't rushed and our every expectation was met. We had the three course meal and were comfortably stuffed. We have recommended it and will definately return.

March is the ultimate choice for a fine dining experience. The food speaks for itself. YOur ability to create your own menu fits your pallate, allowing you to select each course. Brilliant! Service is attentive, professional and warm. A MUST try!
