Boston is expensive so the price is what you might expect but the quality of food is amazing. The staff are knowledgeable & super friendly. The sirloin steak was perfectly cooked & very juicy. The cocktails are great. Definitely worth a visit

We enjoyed the breakfast buffet two morning in a row. The price is about what you would expect - around $21 per person. The breakfast buffet includes an omelet station along with large amounts of other breakfast choices such as yogurt, toast, breads, bacon, sausage, french toast, eggs, eggs Benedict, oatmeal, fresh fruit, etc. That is what was offered when...

I enjoy dinning with Forty Dalton, they have been accommodating to my dairy allergy and willing to provide a variety of meals.

We dined here on Friday evening during Easter and marathon weekend. The food and service was wonderful. The seafood selections particularly the scallop special and salmon were really delicious! We were staying at the Hilton Back Bay and were delighted to have such a great choice here. Will definitely dine on our next visit.

The usual Hilton buffet - more than adequate for most of us re choice. Seems to be a separate dining area for those who didn't take the B & B option when they booked the room. Just don't be squished into somewhere that's convenient for the wait staff.

We decided to eat here since we were staying at hotel and most of the restaurants in or near Prudential mall were super busy(Black Friday weekend). What a great find. Only three tables taken so it was quiet to start. Bar got busy as we were there. The food was really good ( salad with grilled steak and balsamic )and... More

Have had tge plessure of dinning here multiple times. Tonight we are dining late and the Bar is busy, but only two tables are seated. Very long wait for drinks and food. Appears short staff tonight. I usually have a great experience here. I will have to trend with my next dine here. Hopefully service will be better.

Ate here twice on a three day stay. Staff is friendly and the food is actually better than most hotels. Prices are sky high and ther are lots of good resturants serving breakfast if you have the time to walk for 15 to 20 minutes.

We ate dinner in the restaurant on 8 February 2013 since nothing else was open except the one bar with bar food at the Sheraton across the street. They were both overpriced so we chose the one at the Hilton so we could receive some additional points. I asked if there was a discount for Hilton Honors Gold members, and... More
