We went for their Thanksgiving special buffet. They made their statement for their fish with the raw bar appetizer and two excellent fish entree choices. They kept the Thanksgiving theme with a turkey carvery and a roast beef carvery. They proved their claim to excellence with excellent sauces that survived the buffet warming pans in good form (not that their... More

Turner is no longer open. They closed this winter after 30 years of serving clam chowder. There are two Legal Seafood nearby.

It was a nice place, but this needs to be updated. The food was very good, but it was clear they were struggling with attracting customers. I believe towards the end they became part of the Westin Hotel. The restaurant is now closed.

A sandwich at Starbucks did not satisfy me, so I looked around and found this interesting seafood restaurant, being part oft he Westin Hotel. I looked from the shopping mall level and the long staircase leads to the reception and the... More

I planned a private dinner here for about 27 people. From start to finish, the service could not have been better (thank you Kelly Sprouse!) We were able to easily plan our menu and they ordered the flowers for our tables as well. We had a cocktail hour with passed wines and a cheese/fruit display. The staff was perfect and... More

The tuna was one of the best that I have had. The portion was also one of the largest i have had. My wife... More

Located right in the center of Copley Square Mall, in the Westin Hotel, Turner Fisheries seafood selection of appetizers, main course, wine pairing, and desserts most definitely compliment a great dining experience for any visitor or regular wanting to try some seafood. My experience there was perfect, and food was spot on. I had a lobster special they had that... More

For a hotel restaurant, Turner was quite good. The oysters were all from the east coast and the sampler was fun and deliciously fresh. The Bouillabaisse was excellent. Nothing overly fancy, but fresh and delicious. In fact that can serve to describe the entire restaurant. Nothing overly fancy, but everything was really good. They have a nice classic cocktail menu... More
