Ate here for dinner on Valentine's Day and the romantic touches were so appreciated! Candy dishes at each table and a rose upon departure. Highly recommend the Tender Tips and Lobster & Crab Fondue. Our server was THE BEST! We wish he could have sat down and joined us for dinner!

The food was good and fresh as they have an omelette station and pancake station. Really enjoyed the pancakes and omelets. Only thing I saw to drink was orange juice and was straight out of tropicana bottles. Only downfall was the waiter was a little rude when I was giving him a business card that said are breakfast was comped.

So I went there during Restaurant Week Boston. The food I had was okay. For the price during restaurant week, you can't beat it. The beef although, was fantastic. Service was great. My server was very knowledgeable about everything. He was a great guy. Even though I went when they were renovating, the place still looked great. It was only... More

Fresh fruit, cereal, yogurts, pastries, bagels, a variety of breads for toasting were all very appealing with a selection of spreads. Made to order omelets with a good choice of ingredients were on the hot side along with sauteed potatoes, scrambled eggs, french toast, pancakes, etc. The service was excellent!

We were looking for lighter food before going to see Wicked at the Boston Opera House and Avenue One in the Hyatt Regency was a perfect choice. We started off with the chicken polpettes which are stuffed with spinach, fontina and prosciutto. Then we had the fish and chips (substituted baked potato for fries) and the turkey club sandwich, both... More

My husband and I went to take advantage of a TravelZoo coupon. Started with crab cakes which we both enjoyed. I had a roasted vegetable wrap while my husband had the salmon sandwich. Both sandwiches had good flavor. My side salad had many small pieces of iceberg lettuce in it. Found this disappointing because of the organic greens mentioned on... More

Avenue One in the Hyatt offers a place to eat in comfort. The service is good and the food enjoyable. Breakfast is a nice sit down affair if you have the time. If not, there are casual food options also

My husband and I dined here twice. Once for dinner and once for breakfast. At dinner, we waited at least 15 minutes for a server to get our drink orders. Service was extremely slow but our food was very good. I had the white bean tomato soup and the cod w/ the vegetable hash and the quinoa risotto, which was... More

Food was actually okay, however with a plethora of food at your fingertips I would go elsewhere, especially with their prices. Though the waiters were very nice, out of nine meals only one came out properly. The kids steak came out naked and very dry, same with the kids teriyaki plates. We had to order extra sauce for each, another... More
