Great food

We had a great family meal here. We didn't have a reservation but were lucky enough to be seated very quickly on the terrace. Would thoroughly recommend but would advise booking a table.

A restaurant is not better than the weakest link. Here we have a good location, an ambitious menue and a well staffed kitchen. Then the front desk cannot get the plate to the table before its cold or do they possibly put cold food on warm plates ? Time is lost and result at the table is just not what... More

This restaurant has an impressive menu and decent food. I ate there 3 times in 3 days and tried many items on the menu. Overall, the restaurant is over rated; the best part is their warm bread. Sheraton Boston Hotel has better lobster rolls and clam showers. Make sure you make a reservation because this place is always crowded.

The seafood was fresh and very welll prepared. The clam chowder and the lobster are among the best I've tasted in Boston. The service is very professional, responsive and quick, and the ambience one of casual sophistication. I highly recommend this restaurant to seafood lovers.

Three dinners there so far over the past several months and the problem is variability in quality for the price. Suggest you stick to the regular menu items and avoid specials. Simple fish and chicken are fine. There are better choices very close by. Hint A & L where the prices are just as high but consistent super quality

Good wine selection. Waiter hit it off with my teens. Oysters excellent. Lobster - done lazy style - hit the mark and filled everyone up. Seemed to be room for dessert tho. Waiter also directed me to the right, light dish - a crab stack with endive. Perfect. Also tried the chocolate marquis - which competed for best with the... More

Lovely place - inside is best but you can sit outside. We'd looked it up on Tripadvisor as one of THE places to go in Boston. Id say, yes, maybe. Its in the Back Bay area, and if you're walking round there, sure. I had the lobster roll. Lovely fresh cold lobster and LOTS of it. Handsome had oysters, which... More

Steamers were good, soup was good but that's the best I can say, service while very friendly was lacking in every way. No fork, no spoon, wine was late coming. Not sure I would go back there are better options.
