We were staying at the Boston Harbor Hotel for the weekend, but dined out in the North End and Quincy Market on our first two days and nights, just to be active. I wanted to make full use of the hotel's facilities on our final morning, so we remained on site. The morning was spent on the skating rink and... More

Had a very enjoyable lunch with a delicious chowder and beautifully prepared fresh salmon. Very nice setting, nice harbor view, terrific service. Pricey but not considering the location and setting.

Don't go for the food. Don't go the tea. The atmosphere and good conversation with family/friends is what makes this experience superb. The Rowes Wharf Sea Grille is indeed an odd name for a place for afternoon tea. However it's an elegant restaurant snuggled on the backside of the Boston Harbor Hotel that overlooks the marina. Afternoon tea is about... More

If your are in Boston and it's too cold to eat outside but you want to have an ocean view, this restaurant is a good choice, especially if you like it comfortable and quiet. The seafood is first rate, especially raw oysters (2.75 each) and the Halibut over risotto (about $36). Bottles of wine start at $40. The service is... More

We dined here at the Concerige's suggestion, it was too cool to sit outside and we were seated a very small table for 2 pushed against a wall along the main walkway for all the servers to go to the kitchen. The server was friendly as he was waiting on many of the tables in our area. The food was... More

Got a deal online to go here (it is a bit more on the expensive side), I had been here for a tea over the winter but we went for dinner this time.

This restaurant is in a hotel which we had not expected. So we were a little concerned. The restaurant was not busy and were seated at a window table overlooking the harbor area which was very nice. We were hungry and ordered immediately. For appetizers my wife ordered the mussels and I ordered the ceviche. The mussels were in a... More
