Completely overrated. Spend 70USD (w/o drinks) on a halibut and sea bass. Portions were tiny, fish semi-dry. Service seemed to be annoyed when we made questions about food options. Not a bad restaurant, but we have been to much better places in Boston, and prices are steep for what you get.

While visiting family in Boston we had the most delicious seafood meal ever. This restaurant is by far tops in its field. Since it was lent and on a Friday the place was packed. This didn't hinder the quality of the food nor the service. This is definitely the best place ever!

The restaurant is very lively without being too loud. The service, from being greeted at the door, to the bartender, to the wait staff was excellent. Very extensive menu and everything is fresh! And the restaurant also has a great drink menu. Had the lobster and it was well prepared and tasted great. And the location is on a busy... More

My son and I were in town visiting colleges and we decided to go here based upon prior reviews. My son had the mussels appetizer and it was the largest plate I have ever seen! He loved them. My salad was great and the sea bass was fresh and delicious. The service was attentive and efficient. It is in a... More

We came here with a group of 6( 2 of them being children) and had an excellent time. The waiter was patient with us and tailored to the children so they could enjoy themselves as well. Nice kids menu. We also highly recommend reservations.

We had dinner here on a Friday night. We had reservations and were taken to our table immediately on arrival. Our waiter, Glenn, was very professional and helpful. Our food was good, but I think I was expecting too much. Being from Indiana, I somehow expected fresh seafood in Boston to taste better than seafood here, but it really wasn't.... More

We really enjoyed the food and the casual/formal atmosphere. This restaurant is highly recommended from my view. Good location if you are staying near prudential center. Service: Our service was efficient but not overly friendly. Everything was done but the waitress seemed bit distant. Atmosphere: In my view the atmosphere was somewhere between formal and casual which is the way... More

This is a very popular restaurant. So popular indeed that, even though we had a booked a table weeks ahead, there was no table for us and we were expected to wait. Eventually a table became available and we gratefully sat down. My starter of a lobster ravioli was tasty but the pasta was far too thick. This was strange... More

We had a late dinner on a Saturday night and were very happy. We had a reservation and were seated within a few minutes even though it was pretty busy. One of us had the catfish and the other a pasta/shrimp dish, and we were both very happy. Our waiter was excellent - very attentive, personable and a good sense... More
