We were in the back Bay Area and looking for a quiet restaurant off the busy tourist area and found Rowes. It has a great terrace outside with beautiful views of the bay. A great bread basket to start and simple, fresh American fare to enjoy with a bit of flair and imaginative presentation. Nicely presented lobster roll and simple... More

This is a beautiful venue in a lovely hotel. Food was average but expensive. Filet mignon was chewy. Scallops were tasty though. Ginger arancini appetizer was very good while the tuna tartar lacked flavor. Sit outside and enjoy the lovely view of the harbor. Parking is also challenging. Did not find valet and self parked in garage which was very... More

We ate on the Harborwalk Terrace for our daughter's birthday, pre-concert at the Blue Hills Bank Pavillion. Wonderful ambiance on the harbor, clean, and away from foot traffic. Okay menu, pricey for its contents. Service was not good--slow, incorrect dishes brought to the table. We asked for dinner rolls with our cocktails as the food was taking quite a while... More

We had dinner at the Sea Grille to celebrate a graduation. The food was reasonably OK, not fabulous, and the service was horrendous. The waiter seems to have completely forgotten about us.
